Author has written 1 story for Mass Effect.

This account was made specifically for my attempt at fan fiction. This coming from someone who hasn't written a damn thing other than a profile bio since high school. I'm not even going to say how many years it's been since then. I will say, an author I am not. That becomes embarrassingly obvious every time I re-read my story.


About Breaking the Barrier.

Breaking the Barrier is a post-ME2 story that focuses on Joker and Shepard and the difficulties they have coming to terms with the traumas they've experienced, all while their friendship takes a turn toward exploring romantic possibilities. The story picks up directly after the Collector attack, skims over the Omega-4 relay and suicide mission, and then heads into the unknown territory of original plot. DLCs aren't major factors, but LotSB has taken place whereas Arrival has not.

If you happen to read this before you dive into the story, I will warn you now: BtB is marked "angst" for a reason. Srsly.
