Author has written 8 stories for Dragon Age, and Mass Effect.

Mass Effect and Dragon Age fics flit through my head every now and again. Sometimes they demand to be written. Sometimes I post them. Shorter pieces can be found on my tumblr @minquette.

Much love and thanks to all who read, review, follow and/or fav :)

The Cerberus Files Addenda : The Systems Alliance by LogicalPremise reviews
Cerberus's take on the SA. Follows the style of the the Cerberus Files for alien races, but this time going into the dark and ugly history of the Systems Alliance, changes in human culture, and details about the government, politics, and more, written by Minsta. Sort of my take on Renegade Reinterpretations, except more like 'bloodthirsty lunatic reinterpretations with an axe.'
