Thank you for the incredible support you have given me and these stories.
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not that great of a writer. I still have a lot to learn. So thank you for your patience. I like to think that my writing has improved over the past two years I've been a member on this site. I want to continue to improve my skill with each passing chapter and new story.
My writing style:I try to focus my stories on the characters. I like to put an emphasis on character interaction and character development throughout a story. I want to try to keep true to their personalities and perspectives, while also exploring said character. These characters are what drive my stories and my muse.
Bioware: I have nothing but admiration and appreciation for them for creating two of my favorite fandoms-Mass Effect and Dragon Age, not to mention KOTOR. Won’t say much on ME3 for obvious reasons, but they created characters and worlds that I couldn’t ignore once the games were over.
Why I write in these fandoms:
Mass Effect: The characters
Dragon Age: The lore/the world
Harry Potter: The possibilities
Some of my favorite Mass Effect Characters- Wrex, Garrus, Miranda, Tali, Javik, The Illusive Man, Saren, Mordin, Joker, and 'Eve.'
Some of my favorite Dragon Age Characters- Cassandra, Anora, Isabela, Varric, Cauthrien, Loghain, Zevran, Oghren, Shale,Nathaniel Howe, Leliana, Vivienne, and Dorian

Wow, I can't believe it has been four years since I first found this site. I've found some great stories. It's great talking to people who share the same interest in these fandoms. There are some really talented authors on this site.
I'd like to thank them for sharing their talent with the rest of us. It isn't always easy to write, but it is always appreciated.
So thank you.
As a reader I will review stories I subscribe to and favor. (I ask the same to my readers as an author.)
It's not just fanfiction I like, I also appreciate good fan-made trailers and fanart for Mass Effect and Dragon Age. There are a lot of talented fans out there, thanks for sharing your gifts with the rest of us.
I just got a tumblr account. I want to use it as a way to communicate with the people who are interested in my stories. I'll post updates on story/chapter progress. Sneak peeks for upcoming chapters. It also gives readers an outlet to ask me questions about the stories, and even my thoughts on the fandoms, if you're inclined.

Harry Potter and the Guardians Note- As of January 4th, 2013 I have taken the story down. I plan on re-writing it, revising the content, in hopes of making it a better story. I apologize for the inconvenience this may be. When I'm done with the revisions, I will put it back on this site, and hopefully by that time, I'll also have its sequel-Harry Potter and the Four Pillars ready to put up. Thank you.
My stories: Completed:
Mass Effect-"Enter the Collectors"- My first foray onto this site. My take on Shepard entering the collectors' ship, inspiration for this story coming from James Cameron's classic "Aliens." Edits and revisions do need to be made to the story, I have also thought about re-releasing it with added chapters. So stay tuned.
Mass Effect- "Aftermath"- My take on what happens as soon as Shepard destroys the collector base. This is not a Mass Effect 3 story. There will be no Reaper wars in this story. It is my interpretation of how Shepard handles the next few months, as he tries to rally the galaxy against the Reaper threat.
Mass Effect- "I will Rise"- An AU story that has Commander Shepard and Miranda Lawson meeting during Mass Effect One when he is shutting down Cerberus Cells. Could this encounter effect the way Shepard sees not just Cerberus but the galaxy itself?
My stories: In progress:
Dragon Age- "Rising Sun"- On Hiatus
Dragon Age- "War of the Laurels"- AU, G.O.T inspired. Focuses on the Fereldan Civil War through various perspectives. Cousland is not a Warden, but a rebel who leads the resistance against Loghain and Howe. Main POV's: Edmund, Oren, Howe, and Anora. Minor POV's: Fergus, Sgt. Kylon, Ser Cauthrien, Bann Loren, Bann Teagan, Lady Alfstanna (other perspectives to be added as story goes.)
Harry Potter-"A Chance Encounter"-AU, it follows the simple premise of Harry meeting the Greengrass family at Kings Cross instead of the Weasleys. He becomes friends with Daphne, not Ron and how this simple encounter reshapes Harry's Hogwarts years.
Mass Effect- "We Will Rise"- Sequel to "I will Rise." A loose novelization of Mass Effect 2.
Of Lions and Laurels-AU: With the Fereldan Rebellion crushed; the Divine declared the next age the Sun Age believing the Age will usher in prosperity and power for the Orlesian Empire.

In an effort to remove his rival, he sends his cousin, Celene Valmont to Ferelden to marry the second son of Bryce and Eleanor Cousland.
Once we Were: An assortment of one shots centered around Aaron Trevelyan and Cassandra Pentaghast. Takes place in War of the Laurels universe so expect some cameos.
The Mage and the Noble-AU: After being chased out of Lothering by the Templars, Malcolm and Leandra Hawke find themselves in Highever. There, Malcolm is appointed as arcane adviser to the the Teyrn and Teyrna of Highever. While Cedric Cousland finds himself falling for the adviser's only daughter, Bethany Hawke.
The Stone sent me: AU Bhelen Aeducan smoothly inherits the throne from his father. Wanting to strengthen relationships with the surface, he arranges a marriage of his older sister, Princess Rita Aeducan to Abelard Cousland, the second son of Bryce and Eleanor Cousland.
