Author has written 8 stories for Mass Effect, Elder Scroll series, Warhammer, Dragon Age, StarCraft, and Misc. Games.
I'm a college senior with a long and abiding love for history - particularly of the medieval period and (even more specifically) the Early Crusades. Some people might find boring the decade-long debates about the inception date of the stirrup or when and where the traction trebuchet was superseded - not I.
It is only recently that I have begun my first forays into the world of fan-fiction, and it's been a little rocky. I like to think of myself as an above-average essayist, but writing fiction is a little (a lot) outside of my customary demimonde (if you will). Nevertheless, I stride forward in the hopes that every little trip and fall will translate into a lesson learned or a danger to be avoided. Reviews are precious to me; please tell me what you did and did not like about my work. I write not just to explore new worlds and (let's face it) gratify my sense of wish-fulfillment, but also to improve my writing ability. Constructive criticism helps me to grow as a writer, and for spending your time in doing so I am ever grateful.
Despite my interest in history, I love science-fiction, and a large part of my future work will involve various stories which have been evolving for a significant time. Whether they are ever written remains to be seen.
As a blanket statement, all of the settings in which my stories take place undergo some degree of alteration, based on my own preferences and interests. Most of the time these are minor lore changes, and concern equipment or other "background" topics which have relatively little overall effect. Some people may find such changes objectionable, but I do not mark stories so altered as "Alternate Universe." I believe that one cannot take a universe at face-value simply because of the limitations which are forced upon it through the medium in which that universe must exist: namely, hardware and gameplay restrictions. As such, I will change and re-interpret settings so that they make sense in my own mind, while still falling in line with what I perceive the intentions of the author(s) to be. Thus, those stories which I mark as "AU" will contain significant divergences from the established "canon" of events.
