Author has written 2 stories for Assassin's Creed, and Mass Effect.
Hey everyone, Exodia_Girl here, or EG for short if you will. I'm 32 and I live in Toronto, Canada. I was born in Moscow, Russia and I lived for a while (5 years) in Tel Aviv, Israel. I speak Russian, Hebrew, and English fluently and I'm proud of my time spent in Israel. Those five years exposed me to all sorts of culture and taught me to love and appreciate people's differences.
I started to write at the age of 14, in grade eight, when my English teacher told us to write creatively for part of our marks. I kind of hated her for it then because my ideas have always been out in orbit, dark, and kinda 'too serious' or 'too mature'. My teacher thought that I had problems of some kind, even going as far as having me talk to a councilor. I was different because I lived in Russia and Israel, where I have seen more in 12 years than many people in North America see in their whole lives. I witnessed a terrorist attack on the street of Tel Aviv, so yea. I'm different and she didn't get it.
In grade nine I got into fanfiction, and my first forays were atrocious. It is not until it came to me that I can learn to write better by reading more did I start to improve. That's been how I learned to write, I read a lot and take note of how published writers write. My style pretty much hewed itself out of stone by writing a lot of fanfiction. I went through a long period of utter love for Beyblade, I had quite a few fanfics for it that I've since removed. Then there was a period of love for Assassin's Creed, the product of that period is still up.
Since 2010 my writing went through another period of "alignment", and my style changed and refined even more. If you read my current stuff, you'd probably not recognize it. Unfortunately I'm not into writing fanfics as much. It's either an issue of finishing them, or an issue of being "that one person who actually likes that", and having essentially no fandom. Any fanfics I write, I share mostly with my long time best friend in the world. We've been doing that for 15 years now, and no sign of stopping. I admit, I always have ideas on the drawing board. Some of them just never move off the drawing board.
The Notice Board:
June 30, 2018: Tweaking my profile, because I can, and I should.
August 7, 2017: Currently working on my first published fan fic in years! Mass Effect! My ambitious rewrite (and pretzeling) of game canon to suit my fangirl heart, in television show format, with no Reapers to be seen anywhere. I am exploring certain themes, ideas, and characters we did not see much of in the game. Also trying to get my life under control, it is not easy, and I wish I had about a lot less stress.
May 18, 2015: I am not dead. That's an achievement. But alas, I will still be unable to finish Chaos Theory. My love for the franchise did effectively die back in 2011, I've not played an AC game since. In the past four years I've been writing, improving, refining, and working on two separate original work concepts that I cannot discuss here. Fandoms come and go, but I'm largely not in the business of writing anything that is worth publishing. I still tend to steer towards long works, but I just rarely have the drive to finish them once my "fandom phase" passes by. I decided to clean up my account. My old 10 year stuff is outright... yea... kind of embarrassing now, it had to go. I will probably be using my account for favorites/reviews now. Not much publishing.
November 26, 2011: I would like to formally apologize to all the fans of Chaos Theory, but I am afraid I will not be able to finish the series. I apologize for this announcement coming a year after the fact, but up to a couple months ago, I was still hoping I could drum up enough motivation to actually finish the fic. University consumes all my time, and the reading load is insane, at the end of the day I cannot even look at Word anymore after getting through with the daily portion of reading and note taking. Furthermore, my love for AC exploded about this time last year, AC: Brotherhood had a hand in it, I just began to dislike Ezio, his naivete rubbed me wrong in a man who was no longer a teenager and should have known better, and I was unable to suspend my incredulity with the series and its direction. It affected my ability to even focus on writing AC fan-fiction. I am terribly sorry for disappointing everyone, I am disappointed with myself.
My Fictophilia is Currently Raging For:
Prima Fandom Du Jour: Mass Effect

Other Ships That I Think Are Cute: Chromedome/Rewind, Knock Out/Breakdown (IDW Comics).

Mass Effect - 95% of the trilogy cast. (It'd be easier to list of character I'm ambivalent about, and none on my "hated" list.) Transformers - (All exclude bayverse versions. I hate the Bayverse!) Optimus Prime (Generally... but IDW not as much), Bumblebee, Windblade (IDW), Megatron (Esp. IDW), Starscream (esp. IDW), Soundwave, Knock Out (Prime & IDW), Thundercracker (IDW), Skywarp (IDW).
