Author has written 16 stories for Dragon Age.

I never really was a fan of fanfiction. I tend to like stories the way they are and not try to add to them. I take them as they go, and I really always sucked at guessing endings, or adding “what if” or “what then”, because I don’t try. It doesn’t even come to mind. With what I’m hearing, I’m probably the only one on the planet who did not know, didn’t have a clue, that Bruce Willis was a ghost (you know, in that movie that time…?)

But then I played Dragon Age, and suddenly “what if” and “what then” was all I could think about. After playing Awakening, I had this nagging idea in the back of my mind I didn’t know how to get out. Then, some fan links brought me here, and I read some true genius stories, and got hooked. I started writing my own, and since it all began here, I wanted to publish them here.

One last thing you should know about me. I wrote my fanfics in English, but my first language is French. I decided to write in English because that’s how I played the game and read fanfics so my ideas were coming to me in that language. But it is easier to understand a second language than to write in it, and so my stories are probably full of mistakes, especially with verb tenses. Please feel free to correct me. Just please stay respectful. I’m trying hard and doing my best.

About my stories:

Zevran's proposition at camp, The Landsmeet, Morrigan's ritual and A lesson about love are one-shots that can be read as prequels to The Taint. I recommand reading them in that order.

The taint takes place approximately five years after the events in Awakening. This tells the story of that idea that formed in the back of my mind after I finished the extention. I just had to get it out. Hope you'll enjoy!

Playing with fire and Offerings were written for challenges on the Cheeky monkeys forum. They are not related to my other stories and should not be taken too seriously.

Crazy little thing is an answer to a Cheeky monkeys challenge that just took a life of its own. I guess I was just dying to write about Tabris and didn't know it myself! It's completely unrelated to any of my other stories.

Fix you, Weakness and All I want were written as gifts for friends on the CMDA forum. They are all stand-alone stories.

A kind of magic is a story revolving around Zevran, with a female Amell Warden. It's currently in progress and I'm having a blast writing it! It's also stand-alone and not in the same universe as my other stories.

And now some links!

The Cheeky monkeys forum:

My ridiculously awesome beta Dasque did this fabulous artwork for me! I feel so honored by this. This is Kaylee in "The taint".

One of my reviewers, Lorrain, drew this amazingly adorable fanart for my story Crazy Little Thing! This is Kallian. Isn't she cute?

Here are two amazing commissions from Dasque; the first one is Kallian and Alistair from Crazy Little Thing:

The second one is a royal portrait of Alistair and Kaylee, from The Taint:
