Author has written 7 stories for Fallout, and Mass Effect.
A WORD OF WARNING: Some of the stories in this archive touch on triggering material. They're meant to. Anything that is listed as having abusive themes present is invariably going to approach the topic realistically, and sometimes brutally.
WHO IS THIS 'HUND' DOUCHEBAG ANYWAY?: I'm female, a "professional" author, and an old fart in fandom terms, both in age, and tenure. I've been around for a long time, and this isn't my first "fanfiction.net" rodeo-- it's just been long enough that I'm trying to differentiate between old, and new work.
That's pretty much all you need to know about me personally.
THEMES: That depend on where the plot takes me, which-- arguably, is where my main focus is. Even stories that had the singular goal of 'get these two characters together' invariably has plot spring up around it.
In a lot of ways, I stray towards more transgressive and/or hardhitting themes, which is something to keep in mind. Not a note of 'hurr look at me i'm so edgy,' I just don't want people stumbling onto this archive and being surprised at the severe disparity between, say, 'Strange Affection' and 'Until the End.'
In terms of character relationships, I write primarily femslash, with an eye towards keeping the relationships, and the situations in which they develop, as realistic as possible. Sometimes, I, too, like to toe the line of what will and will not work, but I'll usually label those stories accordingly.
So, basically, this isn't the best place for short'n'sweet wish fulfillment. If that's what you're looking for, you're definitely in the wrong place.
OKAY, SO YOU'RE ELITIST: Not really. I'm a canon enthusiast, definitely, and prefer to read things that are more in line with canon, though, so if that makes me elitist, I'm guilty as charged. Otherwise, if you find something wrong with my characterization, I'd honestly hope you'd tell me. If I disagree with it, then that's my prerogative.
WHICH MEANS YOU'RE COOL WITH ME TRASHING YOUR WORK: If you're flaming me, I will probably report and/or delete the flame. If you're giving me honest criticism, then that's great. Actually, it's encouraged. If something seems out of character, is written poorly, or there's an unfortunate typo somewhere, please, let me know. I am not a prima donna, and never pretended to be.
This includes themes. If I wrote something that genuinely makes you think I'm torturing both the reader and the character, or in some way trivializes a very emotional topic, I would hope that you'd review appropriately, or let me know. Just keep in mind that, in some cases, my aim is to make readers uncomfortable about a specific topic, usually because it's-- well, uncomfortable.
WHY DO I CARE?: That's a good question. Why do you care? I'm a small fry on here.
ARCHIVE STATUS: Presently, the two of the three Fallout fics posted here are in hiatus. This is partly due to fading interest; the rest, I'd rather not go into. Mass Effect related stories, however, are being updated more regularly.

Fic in general (ME and F:NV) can be found by consulting my tumblr archive, located at: http://sachehund.tumblr.com/tagged/it-thinks-it-can-write -- If you're sensitive to pointed rants of a more critical, or potentially triggering nature, it's suggested that you stick to that tag, or the 'headcanons' portion of the blog. I am generally uncensored on that place, so take that as fair warning.
