Author has written 9 stories for Dragon Age, Harry Potter, Transformers, Hobbit, Buffy X-overs, Baldur's Gate, Mass Effect, 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.

A Drop of Poison by Angel of Snapdragons reviews
WIP An unconscious Iruka forces Naruto to return to the academy for another year. It also marks the beginnings of a prank whose far-reaching consequences will shake Konoha to its foundations.

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.

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.

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.

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? Not that surfacer lords proved much better. Good thing the other Grey Wardens were there. They had such wonderful common sense. Well, most of them, the Assembly was still deadlocked about one or two.

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.

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.
