Author has written 7 stories for Dragon Age, Harry Potter, Transformers, Hobbit, Buffy X-overs, and Stargate: SG-1.

Well, it's been over half a decade since I first posted something here and I have to say it's been a great learning experience. It continues to be, but I think I've finally figured out how to avoid most of the pitfalls that lead to poor writing, especially in terms of character portrayal. If I were to lose my memory and then read through my Transformers story and the first 13 or so chapters of the Dragon Age one... I'd have trouble thinking they were written by the same person. Both style- and plot-wise.

That said, I've put up a poll to see which of my stories you'd all like to see updated once I finish the latest DA:COT arc. Vote for the 2 you prefer most!

Other than that, constructive criticism continues to be welcome, as always, just so long as it's kept civil. And please, don't shy away from using that review space to throw in some such criticism.

Dragon Age: The Crown of Thorns reviews
Bhelen had all bases covered, but didn't consider that his older brother would get himself framed on purpose just to fake one measly death... or two. Come to think of it, he probably never expected what happened when the Wardens, all seven of them, dropped by again either, later in the year. Alas. Not that Loghain handled things any better.

Nonlinear Hyperbole reviews
Hellmouthiness was supposed to be at its lowest on Halloween, and Xander figured he might even have found a way to enjoy Herr Snyder's "request" that he and his friends take the kids out for candy bagging. So, naturally, he managed to geek his way so far into the surreal that he made history. Literally.

Transformers: Prime Divide reviews
Sam refused to think it was over after Bumblebee was captured by Sector Seven and they were all carted off like criminals in the middle of the night. He just didn't expect the next bout of interference to come from within Sector Seven itself. In hindsight, though, that brazen, amazing spy hermit was right: Primus HAD only ever given life to ONE planet.

Harry Potter: Last of the Ancients - Book 2 reviews
Harry Potter travels the multiverse in order to acquire new technology and allies, in preparation for dealing with the enemies of his ancestors once and for all. Or at least that was the original plan.
Crossover - Harry Potter & Stargate: SG-1 - Rated: K+ - English - Sci-Fi/Adventure - Chapters: 2 - Words: 27,438 - Reviews: 67 - Favs: 510 - Follows: 667 - Updated: 12/21/2014 - Published: 11/2/2014 - Harry P.
Master of Wood, Water and Hill reviews
Bilbo Baggins wondered what Gandalf was thinking. Oh well, Bag End would sort him out. His house did NOT approve of vandalism, thank you very much. That rune carved into his door learned it personally. Besides, it served the wizard right for not heeding the rumors about Bilbo and the Old Forest.

Harry Potter and the Deus Ex Machina reviews
It was a normal day, until newly turned 8 year-old Harry Potter decided to make a wish upon the dog star (even though he'd almost never actually seen it) and set off something in the Unlabeled Room in the Department of Mysteries. Turns out Dumbledore was wrong. Again. It wasn't love that the Unspeakables were studying down there.

Premeditated reviews
The Provings had been fine, but the feast for Trian's introduction as heir was too Orlesian for Maric... until the second eldest prince decided to help his brother look good at all costs, especially if his method involved a blood-soaked nug of death.
