Author has written 18 stories for Dragon Age, Forgotten Realms, and Mass Effect.
Well, let's see: I have been playing DnD since the early '80's, love Baldur's Gate I&II, Neverwinters Nights, Dragon Age, Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings...and not just the games or movies, but the books, too. Am an avid reader, ferocious gamer, and wanna desperately be a writer. Hey! I am! 20 years after putting the pen down, I recently picked it back up at the urging of another writer of fanfiction (thank you, zevgirl, you gave me the push I needed). You may have seen my ID on the Neverwinters Nights forums, the NWN Reviewers' Guild (now defunct), Academy of Modding Excellance, and the BioWare forums for DA and such. But, then again, maybe not. *shrugs*
10/20/13: Oh my! I am really, really bad at this, aren't I? So sorry...RL continues to push forward even as we make our own plans. This year has seen so many changes - not good, but, surprisingly, could still end up being what could be best for us - and ignoring what we wanted. However, we'll roll with the punches, gather what flowers grow from the manure...ah, I'm sure there are other poetic analogies out there, but my brain and Muse both have other plans for those brain cells and just are not listening to me.
Quite frankly, I'm trying to get the next chapter of Reborn out and even hope to update Tainted and maybe another within the next few days. Problem is...that Stupid Silly Muse (yup! That's her new name for now) has other ideas - she's more focused on planned sequels for the Halla series and is completely and utterly ignoring what I want to do in Reborn and Tainted! To quote Isabela 'Argh!". She wants to concentrate on flowery prose depicting atmosphere and scenery, while I want to. Get. Reborn. Completed.
See? Stupid Silly Muse!
By the by, you should really, really check out some of my favorite authors' stories. I may have forgotten to 'favorite' others as well. Shakespira, CCBug, Arsinoe de Blassenville, Tropical Fool, Isabella Monroe, Wyl, Fluid Consciousness, MsBarrows (ah, check my favorites list)...and many more. And, if you're really, really interested in good ideas, challenges, or just plain talk about DA:O and DA:2 (plus Star Trek, hot men, voices that make us go weak in the knees...), join us over at the Cheeky Monkeys of Dragon Age forum: http://www.darkstorm.co.uk/cmda.
At the helpful suggestion of fellow Cheeky Monkey, Wyl, I am putting up a chronology of my stories:
DragonAge: The Halla Series as follows:
DragonAge: The Halla: This tale tells of when Adaia meets Maric, Rowan and Loghain, all told from their varying points of view. Complete
DragonAge: The Halla At First Sight: A short telling of the first time Duncan sees Adaia. Complete
DragonAge: The Halla Tainted: This is the tale of Adaia and Duncan's first adventure together. This is a work in progress, and can actually be read prior to, during, or after reading DragonAge: The Halla Reborn. It will, eventually, tie into events set in Reborn (below).
DragonAge: The Halla Reborn: My pet project, the one that truly inspired me to begin writing (well, with Zevgirl's help! She inspired me to start writing instead of just reviewing others' works). This is a work in progress, and there are two planned sequels for the story. However, we all know that sometimes plans change...
Other stories (you can read these in any order you wish - they are stand alones):
From Isolation: Jowan finds himself as the Commander of the Grey in Fereldan. This is a work in progress, inspired by Fluid Consciousness' series of one shots entitled "The Dragon Medley", the chapter entitled "Isolation". She had breathed life into the city elven warrior, Sorcha Tabris, which I had asked her to write a pairing with Jowan for. She did such an awesome job that I decided to carry on with it. In order to get a feel for this story, I strongly suggest reading this chapter in the above series. Actually, I strongly suggest reading all the chapters. It is really, really good. Work in Progress.
Into Isolation: short prequel to From Isolation detailing the final battle at Denerim. Complete.
Worth Fighting For: Teyrn Fergus Cousland/Magda Amell planned pairing. Work in Progress.
Ten Minutes to Dying: A series of shorts – prequels to Worth Fighting For. This is in answer to the Cheeky Monkeys Ten Minute challenge – each chapter was written in ten minutes. Work in Progress.
Darkness Paths: She is the dark light, seeking to end the deepest of darkness. He loves her - but can never have her. Complete
Beyond the Sylvan Paths: The Dalish Mage, Say'reil Mahariel, joins the Grey Wardens, and in so doing her life is saved. Darrian Tabris and Alistair went through the joining together and have been fast friends since. Adrian Cousland is conscripted against his will into the Grey Wardens, and his anger and hatred threatens to overtake him. Alim Surana is saved from a fate worse than death - the mage's prison of Aenoar. Can these five very different people find the means to work together to end the Blight that threatens not only Fereldan, but all of Thedas? Work in Progress.
The Watching Giant: A Sten/Brosca pairing. Complete
Blackened Skies: This story is in answer to a challenge over at the Cheeky Monkey's Forum, writing a scenario containing different wardens from different stories/authors (and by wardens we mean 'The Warden'). I am using my own Adela from Halla Reborn, Wyl's Alim Surana from his The Little Hero story; and Malcolm Cousland from mackillian's series 30Dragon and In Peace We Lie. This story has these three wardens come together in a different universe where the Blight is never defeated. Work In Progress.
The Lie: My entry into BioWare’s Asunder contest. Complete.
Darkness of Us All: This is my first crossover between the Forgotten Realms and DragonAge universes. M/Drow original character, M/Hawke, Fenris. Work in Progress.
Legacy of the Hawke: My own take on the Legacy DLC. You know, with my own twists and takes on it. Work in Progress.
How Well: A Cheeky Monkey Secret Santa gift for pennies-4-eyes: Just how well does Byron Hawke's companions - those who claim to know and love him best - really know hom? Complete
See ya there!
