Author has written 18 stories for Dragon Age, and Saints Row.

UPDATE: February 2015 - I'm mostly back (yet again) after another 18 months of ridiculousness that included surgery, family disasters, and all manner of Things Going Wrong. I'm working on getting my WIP stories finished, so with luck updates will be happening very soon.


Here Be Dragons. And occasionally other things.

I like strong, interesting characters who feel real and imperfect, and there's usually violence and gore involved in my stories. Sometimes humour. Occasionally sex, too, though as I write smut (among other things) in real life, my fanfic is my downtime, and tends not to feature quite as many bare bits.

Due to the chaos that is my analogue life, some stories do tend to go a while without updates, for which I apologise. However, I do get there in the end, and nothing of mine will ever be abandoned indefinitely, even if it sometimes feels like it.

You can find a complete archive of all my fic (including some downloadable .pdfs), fanart, mods and things to do with all my gaming interests (Dragon Age, Saints Row, Skyrim, TS3, mostly) at my blog: www.feastingondreams.com

Five-Dollar Circus reviews
When the Syndicate brings the fight to her door, Iggy Abaroa wants more than just revenge. She's going to take Steelport to pieces… but the Boss knows she can't win without making a few unlikely alliances. She just never bet on quite how unlikely one such pact would turn out to be.

Justice in Surrender reviews
All Tobias Hawke wants is to stay alive. Kirkwall is no place for an apostate like him… and definitely no place to fall in love with an apostate like Anders. He knows he should get out. Trouble is, it may already be too late. m!Hawke mage /Anders M/M
