Author has written 8 stories for Portal, Half-Life, BioShock, Mass Effect, and Elder Scroll series.

You can call me Angela. I'm a student with too much free time, not enough of which is spent writing. I write for a few different fandoms, but almost always video game ones. Sometimes I beta for people, too.

The majority of what I write focuses on backstory, angst, and/or underappreciated female characters. I'm a bit of a perfectionist where my work is concerned, and so sometimes remove older stories that make me cringe (we all know this feeling from looking at old work, right?). It's also part of the reason my stories don't usually update as quickly as I'd like them to.

Yes - I am working on Prolonging the End and Watch Over Me (as well as multiple stories that have not yet been put up). Currently, the only story I don't plan to finish is Maternal Instinct. My writing output is in direct correlation with my fluctuating mental health, so I can never really guarantee how quickly something will update. I'm sorry about that!

If you'd like to follow me on Tumblr, you can find my blog here.

Reforging the Spirit by bluekrishna reviews
Basic training. The moment you sign the paper, you resign yourself to going through it. Some take to it easier than other. Unfortunately for one Samantha Traynor, she is not one of them. Will the harrowing experience break her? Or will she find a way to succeed? Rated T for cursing. Written for Selena Shepard as part of a Secret Santa ficswap.
