Author has written 12 stories for Dragon Age, and Mass Effect.

Originally wandered over here to find Dragon Age fiction, and ended up finding the courage to write something myself. Bioware pretty much owns everything.

Anam Cara and Eschaton are unfinished and I doubt they ever will be. I've had writer's block for so long now that I just can't see me picking them back up. Was fun while it lasted though. :-)

To the lying, cheating * who stole Setrus' work and claimed it as their own! You WILL be found out, and you will be revealed for the plagiarising AR*E that you are! Trying to pass it off as your own is despicable and belittles the time, effort and love that we both put into it.

Compilation of one-shots based on a DA:O & Awakenings HNR playthrough.
