Author has written 10 stories for Dragon Age.

.:Behind Closed Doors: Dragon Age Fanfic:.


I exclusively write Dragon Age: Origins fanfic. Most of my series are rated at least "M", just like the game, and are generally NSFW. Expect sex, blood, violence, and strong language: same as the game. Beware of trauma triggers: I cover all kinds of subjects, including rape and domestic violence.

A thousand love-letters to kismet76, for her patient repair of my Antivan; scarylady, my usual beta, without whom several chapters of everything would have been epic failures; and 1smut_princess for being my muse and Zevran oracle on both Wings of the Storm Crow and a large chunk of A Fish Out of Water. *blows kisses*

There is a lot of art associated with my stories, and I have several one-shot pieces, all of which can be found at my main profile, under this name, at dreamwidth-dot-org.

Series marked with an asterisk (*) have been put to pdf since their publication here, and can also be found at my main profile. Particularly, Making Our Own Destiny has radically changed from its form here, and I strongly recommend you read it in pdf.

A Fish Out of Water
Zevran Arainai and Lily Maxwell

Note: This fic tends to assume that the reader is familiar with Lily from "Wings of the Storm Crow", at certain points, so some things may be lost in translation if you haven't read the other series.

Currently in progress.

Withiel Tabris had to drag herself, and Ferelden, through the Blight, but she couldn't do it on her own, no matter how she tried. It took the steady hands of a Crow, a childhood nightmare made flesh, to show her that no one can stand alone.
