Author has written 30 stories for Dragon Age, Lord of the Rings, Silmarillion, and Mass Effect.

A teacher whose life-long love of English and Tolkien recently expanded to include DAO and ME.

The DAO stories are based on my canon play-through with my character, Ned Cousland. Everything in the stories belongs to Bioware, except that which is mine, namely Ned ... alright, alright, Morrigan, stop glaring at me, the guy is all yours, I certainly know better than to dispute a mage!

The same disclaimer goes for ME, of course, except some original characters I introduced and the personality of Connor Shepard. As my plunge in the ME verse is not very extensive (yet), I'll let him introduce himself via ChampTheWonderSnail's questionnaire from CMDA:

1. Name and personal stats?
Connor Shepard. Dark hair, dark eyes, dark scrub. Don’t have the time to shave. Also, a lot to shave there – wide jaw, y’know.

2. Background?
Spacer, Sole Survivor, Soldier. Mostly paragon, unless it comes to a fight or people who annoy me… or people I hate.

3. So share some thoughts about the following:
a) The Council
There are moments when I sincerely regret saving their asses… though, getting them to acknowledge I was right all the time was highly satisfactory
b) Cerberus
Dead. Some of them just don’t know that yet.
c) The Alliance
I am Alliance. No matter if they believe me or not.
d) Cake
Food.

4. Love interests if any?
That biotic is totally crazy, but… she has very pretty eyes. And lips. And…

5. Favourite Hobbies when you're not saving the universe:
Collecting model ships, playing space chess, hanging out with Garrus and letting him win sniping contests.

6. Your perfect ending
Making sure the Reapers are dead and stay dead.

7. Your favourite weapon/Weapon of choice?
Whatever I get my hand on as long as it does the job.

8. Your favourite holiday destination?
The Citadel. A great place for jogging to and fro.

9. Who do you take with you on your most important missions?
Garrus, Jacob, Liara and EDI get the most screentime.

10. Finally...share some words of wisdom for us?
Some must be sacrificed for everyone to be saved. Though I do my best to minimize the sacrifice.


With the growing number of stories, I guess it might be sensible to make a sort of timeline. Given the vagueness of datation in the game, I rather produced a locationline, according to Ned's travels across Ferelden. I attached the names of stories (or chapters of Succumbing to Weakness) to the locations; the stories in italics are planned but not written yet and the title may change. The stories written in between the locations happened, well, somewhere in between.
