Author has written 9 stories for Mass Effect, Harry Potter, Dragon Age, and A song of Ice and Fire.
I love history. It is a passion. It is also a source of inspiration for my writing.
The best stories and characters can be found in the pages of any history book.
Story Updates: September 5th, 2017
Trying to wrap up "War of the Laurels." It's been a crazy ride with this story and the feedback has been encouraging throughout the years its taken to write. I'm looking forward to further exploring the characters, world, and plot of Dragon Age in the sequel which I hope to have started before this year is out.
The feedback to "A Dragon's Roar," continues to be humbling. The response its received has surpassed all expectations that I had for this AU when I decided to publish it. The reviews and comments this story continues to get from the audience serves as inspiration to my muse to keep these chapters coming out at a steady pace.
"Our Blades Are Sharp" and "The Slytherin Reformation," have been tentatively placed on the back burner for my muse. I still work on them when I find time, but the motivation isn't as high since the last chapters to both stories received an underwhelming response that was a bit disheartening. So the writing has stalled. I know there are dedicated readers and reviewers for these stories, and it's with you in mind when I try to find time to put down some ideas or get a few pages done.
When it's all said and done, I write on the whims of my muse. It is the muse that directs me, so when it feels like one story is getting more attention from the readers through reviews. Getting said feedback from the audience serves as a great boost to the muse and as encouragement to get the next chapter out as soon as I'm able to.
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 five 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
A Song of Ice and Fire: All of the above
The fanfictions I enjoy to read the most are Mass Effect, Harry Potter, Star Wars (KOTR), Dragon Age, A song of Ice and Fire series, and Game of Thrones
Fanfiction Appreciation: Seven years
I'm amazed I've been on this site for seven years now. So much has changed in that time, my gratefulness for finding this site has never been stronger. I'm humbled by the feedback my stories have gotten in that time and thankful for the people I've encountered. It's always so great to talk characters, stories, and fandom with people who share a similar passion.
I've found so many great stories on this site that deserve to be on my bookshelf with some of my other favorite works of fiction and non fiction. I'm extremely thankful that these authors have shared their amazing gifts with us for free, it's incredible and I'll never stop being grateful for the amount of time they have invested into telling these stories.
It isn't always easy to write, but it is always appreciated.
So thank you
As for my own stories. I have some I need to finish, and others I want to start.
As a reader I will review stories I subscribe to. I ask the same to my readers as an author.
Cover Image Request: To any talented readers out there if you have any interest in creating the cover image to any of my stories, please contact me. All I can offer you is my sincere gratitude and credit to your talent. 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 affect the way Shepard sees not just Cerberus but the galaxy itself?
Mass Effect- "We Will Rise"- Sequel to "I will Rise." A loose novelization of Mass Effect 2.
