Author has written 26 stories for Mass Effect.

I am just a regular gal that enjoy playing video games, reading, watching TV. I not the best writer in the world, but I do enjoy putting thoughts on paper. Mass Effect is my favorite video game series and is the only realm I write fanfiction in.

My stories are about Commander Leia Shepard and her relationship with Dr. Liara T'Soni. Leia is a Spacer/War Hero/Paragon/Soldier.

About my stories. Anything published before 1 April 2012 were written well before Mass Effect 3 was released. I speculated on things. Some things I hit it on the head. Others I missed on completely. I think some things I didn't give enough thought on. Water under the bridge. The following stories I consider AU: "The Wong Interview" "Betrayal" "The Aftermath"

The following stories I do consider canon: "Hard Choices" "What's In A Name" "Bumps In The Road"

These stories need a rewrite to make them fit in the arc I plan on starting soon. But most of the events I consider canon: "A Family Vacation" "Problems At School" "The Reason" "Crossroads" and all of the other Kaja centered stories.

I do not plan on going back to rewrite any stories written before ME3. As far as I am concerned, "New Beginnings" replaces "The Aftermath" as Shepard and Liara start their life together after the war is over. I'm slowly filling in the blanks between "New Beginning" and "A Family Vacation"

The changes to the stories which are canon to me, but need a few minor rewrites to work with the changes I made are the following:

Shepard stays in the Alliance for five more years and retires as General Shepard.
Admiral Hackett would replace Anderson.
Shepard never receives the Normandy from the Council.

Those are the only things I can think of at this time, I might add to it if I think if something else that I changed.

I've gotten a few people asking me about the chronological order of my stories, so I decided to put that in my profile.

These three are linked to each other and I do consider them to be AU stories and not part of my canonized timeline I have created:

The Aftermath
The Wong Interview
Betrayal

The rest of my stories are part of my canonized timeline and they go in this order:

Set between ME2 and ME3:
Hard Choices

Set During ME3:
Letter
Lover Mode
The Reason

Set after ME3 (With Shepard and Liara being protagonists):
New Beginnings
A Dish Served Too Hot
A Friendship Rekindled
The Grand Reopening
A Family Vacation(Bear in mind, this story was written before ME3 was released, so a few characters are in it that shouldn't be.)
Problems At School
What's In A Name
Bumps In The Road
Kids Being Kids

Set After ME3 (With Kaja T'Soni being the protagonist):
Crossroads
Crossroads II: The Eclipse Factor
Revealing The Family Secret
Yellow N' Blue
Secret Revealed
In The Line Of Duty
Moving On
Shore Leave

14 June 2014: I've come to the conclusion that I am unable to post new stories with this account. Which is too bad for you, the reader, because I have new material for you. If I am able to post new stories in the future, I will. If not, it's been a fun and wonderful ride. 23 March 2015, still unable to post anything. However, I might have something new. I'll end up posting it and the last story I tacked on to another story on a new account. More info coming soon.

Check out the new story, Recap and Onward, by AKATattoohero.
