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

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.
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

7/19/12 - As of this date, this story is on hiatus while I work on another project (see below), but I will be back to it before too long. Also, many thanks to Danish Existence for being my sounding board for ideas for this story. Please check out her story () if you're looking for more great Witcher fanfic.
On hiatus indefinitely while I get the original fic ready for publishing.
