Author has written 17 stories for Left 4 Dead, Fallout, Mass Effect, Portal, and Dragon Age.

Bits of Trivia About Me:

-I'm a graduate student in archaeology/anthropology. This means I am incredibly busy, so my updates may not come often but they will happen!

-I'm new to the world of fanfic. I was never inspired to write it until I came across my first all-time favorite fandom: Left 4 Dead! And then I found Fallout...and then Mass Effect.

-I like to think of myself as a courteous writer. I try to always return to favor of reviewing or at least send a thankful PM.
