Author has written 41 stories for Mass Effect, Ninja Turtles, and Dragon Age.

I said I was just going to read fanfic, not write it. Then look what happened...

Obligatory disclaimer: Characters and settings don't belong to me.

I write in a number of different continuities and use different Shepards at different times.

Second Chances and Second Chances: Nervous are closely linked stories dealing with Renee Shepard, who broke up with Garrus and reunited with Kaidan during ME3; years later, she and Garrus meet again as widowed parents and set about rebuilding their relationship. I may post additional stories, set both before and after the main events of the Second Chances narrative.

Life, Letter by Letter is a series of short fics focused on Val Shepard, vanguard (currently featured in my avatar). She is also the Shepard featured in Reckoning and Divided Loyalties. She's one of my favorite Shepards, so there will probably be more stories featuring her in the future.

Mass Effect Minifics contains a wide variety of short fics, including the point of view of most of the squadmates. There are also a number of romantic or fluffy Shepard/Garrus stories in the set.

A Family Affair is a set of linked stories, set post-ME3, involving Shepard's recovery, eventual wedding, and the Vakarian extended family (as I imagine them).

Variations on a Theme, with Tank and Gunfire stands alone. Most of the short FemShep/Garrus fics are also one-shots, although some of them could fit within Val's continuity or the Family Affair one.

Although FemShep/Garrus is the main pairing that I write, sometimes I like pairing Garrus up with other characters.

Belonging and Crossing Lines are linked stories exploring the growth of a romance among a male Shepard, Garrus, and Tali. Yes, all three. Stealing Moments features the same characters in a series of shorts. I am not currently planning any additional stories for this trio.

Nights, Days, Shadows (formerly One Night on Noveria) traces a growing relationship between Liara and Garrus from early in ME1 (currently it's at mid-ME2). While the story is currently on hiatus, I still have hopes to return to it.

Against the Law has hints of a Garrus/Tali romance.

Note to readers:

I have an account on archiveofourown dot org; my username there is also servantofclio. Nearly all the stories posted here are also posted there.

I also have a tumblr account. Short fics usually get posted there first, and sometimes I talk about writing or other things.

In the Moments Between After and Before by Niamh St. George reviews
It wasn't something she would have necessarily considered before. Before Cerberus. Before coming back from the dead. Before Reapers and Collectors and a suicide mission that actually might be a suicide mission, this time. Before, Garrus had been Shepard's de facto second in command, and it was never, never a good idea to sleep where you worked. But the rules were different now.
