Author has written 8 stories for Dragon Age.

Avid reader and writer of fanfiction - though I have never published any before now. New mother - stay at home mother, at that - with limited free time - but I spend what I do have writing and gaming.

I started writing fanfic to give myself a creative outlet when I wasn't working on non-fiction projects - and to keep my skills from getting too rusty.

I hope that by publishing here, and interacting with this phenomenal community - I can encourage myself to publish more.

Looking forward to any reviews and comments so that I can polish my skills for future posts.

Cheers!

Frayed One


My current project is a work in progress - the whole of which is titled Varric Tethras' One True Epic

Completed: Book One of the series, which is titled Star-Crossed and covers the period of time prior to the Blight in the life of my main character, Elissa Cousland. This book will focus on the relationship between Elissa and Nathaniel.

Completed: Book Two of the series, which is titled Haunted and covers the Blight time period and content of DA:O (and some of the bonus content, I will specify when I decide what I'm including - at the very least Soldier's Peak). This book will mainly deal with the relationship between Elissa and Alistair, though Nathaniel will still figure into the content from time to time.

Completed: Book Three of the series, which is titled Poison and Wine and covers the post-Blight time period and content of DA: Awakenings. This book will deal with both the damaged relationship between Nathaniel and Elissa after the death of his father, and the equally tumultuous relationship between Elissa and Alistair as they struggle to deal with Nathaniel's return and Elissa's questionable mental state.

Work-In-Progress: Book Four of the series, which is titled Sleepwalker and covers the time period following DA: Awakenings and the time period during DA2. This book follows Elissa's struggle to maintain her relationship with Nathaniel in the wake of her progressive deterioration and will tie her into the DA2 universe via Anders and her concern for him.

Work-In-Progress: Remnants is a collection of short stories that occur within the VTOTE timeline but do not fit within the constrains of the regular story for one reason or another.
