Author has written 7 stories for Star Fox, Warcraft, Mass Effect, Fallout, and Elder Scroll series.

Notice: Seeing how that I am exceptionally bad at proofreading my own works, I'm sort of looking for an editor. Hell, maybe two. Chuck a private message my way and we'll talk about it.

The name's CaliforniaTD. Friends call me Cali... or bubblebutt, entirely dependent on their disposition of course.

Anyhow, I'm a fanfiction writer who tries to focus as much as possible on original characters and stories. Universes like Mass Effect, StarCraft, WarCraft, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Deus Ex... it's no secret that they were firmly established IPs that focused on a single story arc inside a vast world. And to be honest, it sort of puzzles me that the majority of fanfictions set in established canon are about non-original characters. That's just me, though.

FICS IN PROGRESS:

Mass Effect: Cyan Steel (65% complete)

Set six years before the original Mass Effect game, Cyan Steel tells the story of the crew of the Panera; three privateers commissioned by the Citadel council. When the trio raids a bunker on a backwater planet in the Terminus Systems, they make an unsettling discovery. The council reassigns them to probe the disappearance of an arsenal of deadly turian prototype weapons. The seemingly blithe but scarred Burke Craddock, the highbrow and no-nonsensical Brooklyn Seltzer, and the offbeat and seasoned Darius Macerdin are well known for having a keen sense of right and wrong even with the freedom they are given, and often do the right thing. However, the path of the paragon comes at an unfortunate cost. Being that their friends list seems to be piddling compared to the number of people in the galaxy that want to see them dead. Facing blackmail, vicious criminal organizations, old rivals, and an unyielding villain and his army of murderous sociopaths, nigh-certain failure smiles upon them. Though each know there is too much at stake, their lives just being one...

Fallout: Dominion - (Less than 5% complete)

WarCraft: The Crimson Tome - (30% complete)

Velvet and Stone - Elder Scrolls Universe, comedy and action adventure. Around 8% complete.

Dangerous Bastard - Mass Effect universe, dark comedy/drama. Completed.
