Poll: If I wrote a Mass Effect 3 alternate ending fic, would you read it? Vote Now!
Author has written 5 stories for Mass Effect.
I'm a female high school senior in the U.S.A. and an aspiring writer. I love languages, calculus, and music. My eyesight is awful and I can't see much without contact lenses. I drink tea as an everyday thing and love video games :) RPGs are way better than FPSs. I can't play a game that has more combat than plot. My fanfic stories are generally relationship-oriented, whether it's romance or friendship. I'm a bit of an unreliable updater, since I spend a lot of time working on my own original writing as well as fanfiction. School keeps me incredibly busy, especially since it's senior year and I'm applying for college! Thanks for stopping by my profile :)
All of your stories are connected! Which one do I start with?
Start with "Commander Shepard, You've Got Mail." All of the other Mass Effect stories stem from that one, except for "It's a Human Thing," which is sort of a prequel and not necessary reading. Same goes for "Dossier: Shepard," which is a plotless piece that basically describes the Shepard I use for all my ME fanfic.
Are you planning on writing an ME2 Shakarian story after CSYGM and THAFPF are over?
It's a little difficult for me to give a concrete answer at this point. So I will say that I definitely have PLANS. I would love to continue Garrus and Shepard's story into the ME2 storyline (adding my little additions to the canon plot along the way). But it will depend on multiple factors, including how busy I am, what other projects I'm working on, and whether I'm still feeling the inspiration to write Mass Effect fanfic by the time my two ongoing multichapters are concluded. Rest assured that I will make an announcement when I do know for sure what my plans are.
What does CSYGM and THAFPF stand for?
"CSYGM" is an acronym for "Commander Shepard, You've Got Mail." THAFPF refers to its companion story, "The Heart Asks for Pleasure first."
What happened to your other stories in the FF7 and Hetalia fandoms?
I deleted them. They were written quite some time ago and, being the paranoid sort of writer, it makes me very nervous when people read my older writing. So I did a purge of everything from old fandoms. I understand that some of the stories were quite popular, and if anyone really misses them, I kept copies. Let me know and I'll send one your way.
Can I use ideas/characters/plot points from one of your stories in my own work?
It depends on the circumstances and exactly how much you are planning to borrow. Needless to say, ALWAYS ask for permission first, and ALWAYS give me credit in your author's note or description. I know plagiarism is difficult to combat on the internet, but I do consider my ideas to be my own, and having other people steal your work without permission is really a terrible experience. If you ask, I will say yes 90% of the time, as long as the above two requirements are fulfilled. But please do ask first. My readers are a loyal and observant lot, and will often report back to me if they find something in another story that corresponds too closely to something in one of mine.
As of a while ago, I am a Shakarian shipper. For those of you who don't know, it's a Mass Effect pairing, and it's the BEST THING EVER. These are my favorite Shakarian songs, along with the verses that particularly stand out to me.
No Light, No Light -- Florence The Machine
No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
And I'd do anything to make you stay
Through the crowd, I was crying out
Starlight -- Muse
But I'll never let you go
My Love -- Sia
You gave it all, gave into the call
You came thoughtfully, loved me faithfully
Tonight you will sleep for good
Strangeness and Charm -- Florence The Machine
The static of your arms, it is the catalyst
Cosmic Love -- Florence The Machine
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
M4 Part II -- Faunts
Fight your foes you’re on your own
And I need you to recover
Archangel -- Two Steps From Hell (instrumental)
The Heart Asks for Pleasure -- "The Piano" soundtrack (instrumental)
Exogenesis: Symphony Part 2 (Cross-Pollination) -- Muse
Rise above the crowds
Spread, our codes to the stars
Only If For A Night -- Florence the Machine
And I heard your voice
And the only solution was to stand and fight
You Are A Tourist -- Death Cab for Cutie
When there's a burning in your heart
Because when you find yourself the villain in the story you have written
Never Say Never -- The Fray
Picture, you're the queen of everything
I review every story that I read on my computer, but since I usually read fanfiction on my phone, I generally can't leave reviews. Sorry about that. I will favorite and subscribe, though.
Constructive comments are always appreciated!
