Author has written 13 stories for Dragon Age, Harry Potter, Transformers, Hobbit, Buffy X-overs, Baldur's Gate, Mass Effect, Avengers, A song of Ice and Fire, and Stargate: SG-1.

Find my original novel on P(a)treon and Subscribestar, The Luckiest Man in the World. The first chapter is for free, so you can get a taste of what life will be like for the 67th President of the United States of America.

Otherwise, I can still be found here, especially whenever I post something new. Which, admittedly, isn't that frequent anymore what with original writing underway. I'll be focusing on Master of Wood, Water and Hill and the upcoming sequel to Harry Potter and the Deus Ex Machina.

Meanwhile, I have a Halo quest on Spacebattles if that's your poison, called Truth and Reconciliation.

A Drop of Poison by Angel of Snapdragons reviews

The Logistics of Good Living reviews
If it's true that every lucid dream is actually long-range astral projection or parallel incarnation, I have no qualms about treating this world as real. Of course, I could also be wrong. Wouldn't that be something? If nothing else, though, my new family won't take quite the same amount of work to salvage as my previous one. [Brandon Stark SI] [Companion to "Regression"]

Regression reviews
Past life regression isn't an easy thing when you don't have to work for it. "The Logistics of Good Living" companion piece, from the SI point of view.

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.

On the Shoulders of Scions reviews
The Great Dilemma was not about inevitable conflict between organics and synthetics. That was a lie. The truth was far grander and at the same time far closer. The races of the Galaxy had one name for it: Mass Effect. And Shepard was going to have to fix it. As a 10-year-old. Well shit.

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.

Self-Made reviews
His life started in darkness and he never quite remembered how he welcomed the first light, which was probably for the best. He did remember absolutely everything that came after, though, which wasn't for the best at all.

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.

Beyond Good and Ego reviews
There are people and powers in the Cosmos that look into the shadows of possible futures and times undone as a matter of course. One doesn't even need to travel beyond Earth to find them. Sadly for all but one of the parties involved, one wholly intended consequence of this is that a close encounter of the third kind ends up overlapping a DMT trip. [Avengers/GOTG/X-Men]

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.

Harry Potter and the Hallowed Remnants reviews
Man goes where his desires take him. He travels the road of his desires and thoughts. He makes his own route—he guides his own vessel. Man is his own Destiny. And now, facing the Great Adventure with open eyes and a bold heart, a particular man has reached the point where he has some say in the matter. (Sequel to HP:DEM)

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.

Dragon Age: The Crown of Thorns reviews
There's something to say about trying to hold onto basic decency in a den full of snakes. It kills you or drives you insane. Or both. Why else would he get himself exiled on purpose? (Hiatus. Desperate need of rewrite. First third barring a few re-done chapters is terrible. Leaving it up, though, because it was my crucible of learning to write).

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.
