Author has written 4 stories for Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Final Fantasy XIV.

I once went by BaneoftheBlackDragon and another name but have, recently, changed my name to signify a fresh return to fan-fiction writing. I will be returning to all of my original stories but also presenting some new ones as well in the time to come. None of my original writings have survived due to various reasons but the concepts and characters remain and will return in due time to those that once enjoyed them to, hopefully, enjoy once more.

Most of these stories will, likely, contain lesbian couplings and contain the M rating for adult-related content, though nothing graphically explicit to keep in line with FF.net's guidelines and policies. I will probably ignore this or skirt around it just because I'm not in the mind too care that much.

I had, originally planned, on focusing on one story at a time but I'm finding that I am getting burned out on ideas by focusing on one story specifically, so I'm spreading out into several of the ideas at once, just to keep things fresh. Updates have slowed due to life events and responsibilities but I am trying to eek one out about once a week at least. Do not be surprised if you see previously posted chapters being updated with edits, since I do not have a beta reader as of yet, I am trying to polish up existing writing and being more careful with future updates.
