Author has written 12 stories for Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Elder Scroll series, and Witcher.

I'm a huge Mass Effect/Dragon Age fan and fantasy rpg video game fan in general. I'm new to fan fiction, having only started reading stuff on this site when I was dissatisfied with the turnout of a particular "romance" option in DAII and went on BioWare's forums to gripe. Someone had linked to a fantastic little story posted on this site that actually managed to fulfill my needs:http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7419034/1/Obeisance (as base as my needs were... more Sebastian-related smut please ;). It was all downhill from there and now I'm writing some fanfic myself. I hope folks like it, and any feedback, good or bad, is welcome.

I am also a huge fan of the Witcher games, and have read the two English translations I could find of Andrzej Sapkowski's books (Last Wish and Blood of Elves). Which have fed my desire to write a Witcher/Dragon Age crossover fanfic. There were just too many parallels between the worlds for me to ignore so the combination made sense.

More personal details: I'm a 40-something woman married to a lifelong gamer. We play D&D on a weekly basis and both have a passion for video games. My professional career involves some writing, but not of the the creative variety, unless you count writing for marketing "creative" which could be argued. I have much more fun writing fanfic, that's for certain.

BIG UPDATE: I've rewritten Part 1 of Second Skin as a stand-alone contemporary erotic romance novel (not fanfic). It's different from the original, but only in that I've added a lot of juicy details to it, specifically focusing on the Ramona/Leo romance and removed my sparse references to Mass Effect. I have signed a contract with a digital-first publisher to publish this as the first book in a series based on my Second Skin story (Sam/Mason's whole story arc). If you're interested in keeping track of my progress, please come to http://jessepearle.com/ where I will be posting updates!

I am also beginning to self-publish a series of original erotica shorts (I affectionately refer to these as "Dragon Porn"), which you can read about on my alter-ego website here: http://opheliabell.com/

My fanfics are also posted on both Archive of Our Own and DeviantArt:

AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/users/PestoMonkey

dA: http://pestomonkey.deviantart.com/ (this is the best place to read my recent stories)

Tumblr: http://pestomonkey.tumblr.com/ (not very active here, though)

Shepard's Tattoo from Blackwork: http://i.imgur.com/yBFpa.jpg

A few people have asked, so I thought I would explain the tattoo concept. It is just a combination of the paragon/renegade symbols from the game that I Gimped together - pretty uninspired, really, but I always thought wing tattoos were rad.

Playlists:

Sexy music to go with Blackwork sexytime (or any other sexy story for that matter - this playlist is a work in progress and I keep adding to it as I discover new songs that fit the mood): http://grooveshark.com/playlist/PestoMonkeysSexyPlaylist/70630113
