Author has written 2 stories for Mass Effect.

I am an avid fan of Bioware games, especially Mass Effect. I've never put any fan fiction on a website before now, but with this game I just can't seem to help it. The world is so deep and well-described, and there aren't enough official books and stories to suit me. I'm not sure how many people will like my stories, but I've been doing a lot of reading so it's only fair I share some writing.

I like hearing from people. I am a big girl and I can take constructive criticism, so please feel free to offer it. I've been writing as a hobby for a long time and I welcome the input that comes from fresh eyes.

Other than that, I have little else to say. Please enjoy what I've written, and feel free to contact me.

Mass Effect: Newton's First Law by Raven Studios reviews
If the Normandy's crew knew what they were in for, they would have stepped back to wonder if they were in the wrong line of work. But when serving with a crew like this, it's not all bad news, all the time. Snapshots of Mass Effect in 1000-word vignettes. (Cover images all belong to Bioware. As with Mass Effect itself, I'm just borrowing them and giving credit where it's due.)

Valhalla by SageQueen reviews
I seriously think Mass Effect 2's infamous Horizons moment was ALL A PLOT! To keep it canon, this is my take on Cerberus' shenanigans. Follows ME2 storyline with flashbacks to earlier times. Bioware owns all. This is part 3 of 'Valkyrie' Shepard's tale.

Sign Ups and Takedowns by PartSpace reviews

That Blurred Line by ExtraJuicy reviews
SHENKO; First the scene on Horizon, then the babbling email, Shepard finds she's had enough and takes a moment of shore leave to screw her head back on. A little tequila doesn't hurt.

Beyond the Horizon by waiting4morning reviews
Garrus has a slightly awkward question to ask Commander Shepard, but they're old friends, so it shouldn't be a big deal. A friendship piece for fem!Shep and Garrus--no romance--with a side helping of Shenko.

Why are Humans Smarter than Quarians? by Wraithfighter reviews
It's a horrible, offensive, speciest and specious joke. But, as Commander Shepard will soon realize, the tiny bit of truth behind it can, in fact, be hilarious. One-shot, no romance, just a bad joke that's left the writer giggling like a schoolgirl...
