Author has written 6 stories for Mass Effect, and Halo.

Hello, I'm One Over Infinity, which = 0. Ha ha. Math joke. Philosophy joke too, but that one's not quite as funny.

Anyways, please excuse my dry, sardonic sense of humor, and forgive my sarcasm as I inform you about myself.


Three things that you need to know about me:

I am Canadian. I won't specify where in Canada; however, I am Canadian, and I'm proud of it.

I am female.

I am an absolute halo addict, and thanks to fanfiction, I've become a mass effect addict as well. Cheers.


My current, and planned stories are:

Gypsy child (as I have it somewhat planned) is a somewhat off-kilter self insert into the world of mass effect. As far as self inserts go, this is absolutely not normal, as my OC is rather... shall we say unaware?

Lone Star Against An Ebony Sky (as I'm looking forward to writing) is the planned sequel to Gypsy child, and is set to mainly follow the events of Mass Effect 1. Shepard = Colonist/Ruthless/neutral-renegade.

(haven't decided on a name yet) is the planned sequel to Lone Star Against An Ebony Sky, and is set to mainly follow the events of Mass Effect 2. With a few twists of course ;).

Water of Life from the Fountain of Death (which I personally think is an awesome title) is planned to be a collection of poetry one-shots from the Halo universe. Will be updated whenever I feel inspired to write for it. Chapters so far: You Did Us Honour, Reign Death

The Bloodied Blade (which I am in the process of writing, but am going to wait to start publishing) is a story set in the halo Universe about a human slave within the Sangeili underworld

The Unwelcome Stranger (which is in the planning stages) is a self insert set in Halo Multiplayer. Can I learn how to fight and win against unending waves of enemies? Can I find a way to survive, in a world not built for living? Let's find out.

The Path to Freedom (which is also in the planning stages) is the planned sequel to The Unwelcome Stranger. What happens on this path? You'll have to wait to find out.

Third Life (which is a rather boring title which is apt to change) is a semi-self-insert-kinda-cross-over-but-not-really between 1/2 Prince and Mass Effect. It is also the first story that I'm actually taking the time to write an overview/plot summary before actually writing it. Chapters 1-4 are currently mapped.

Possible stories which I have not yet decided on are:

Blue Shift: a not quite self-insert into the world of mass effect (OC, not me); Timeset? Unknown. Plot? Undecided. Basic Premise? Hilarious. Could be considered a 'fish out of water' story ;).

Valley of the Shadow of Death: John Shepherd has died twice now, but the second experience is so unlike the first. How will he respond, given a chance to fix all the mistakes he has made, for another version of himself?

My completed fics are:

Echoes of the Damned: Halo poetry. One-shot of an individual within the flood's hive-mind perception. Despite the fact that it's so short, I'm incredibly proud of this piece.

A Rachni Tale: Mass Effect poetry. Triad/Trilogy that tells of happiness, solitude, and despair, harmony, silence, and discord. Ends just before shepards involvement in ME1.

Where I Came From: Mass Effect poetry. Triad of origins, which tells the stories of the Spacer, the Colonist, and the Earthborn. Gender-neutral, may have situational paragon-renegade biases.


- The !UOA! -

That's right, I am an official member of the Unofficial Order of Awesome.

While merely ranked an Origami Ink Slayer (2nd degree), I am privleged to serve as the Unofficial head of the poetry and cryptology division, and as an Official Member of the Unofficial Committee of the !UOA!.

For those who may stumble upon this page, and find themselves wondering, 'What rank is an Origami Ink Slayer anyways?' I shall explain.

The following is a list of rankings within the Unofficial Order of Awesome, organized from chosen-one level epicness, to mere coolness.

ELDRICH DICTATOR OF EPICNESS
APOCALYPTIC HERO
WIELDER OF THE PEN-SABER
REALITY-CRAFTER OF FICTION
INVINCIBLE INK CRAFTER
PLOT-GOD OF AWESOME
PEN-SLINGER OF AWESOME
PLOT-DEMON OF AWESOME
PEN-WIELDER OF AWESOME
ORIGAMI INK SLAYER
CALLIGRAPHER OF MAGIC
PLOT-DEMON OF MAGIC
PEN-SLINGER OF COOL
PLOT-DEVIL OF COOL
PEN-WIELDER OF COOL
MAGICAL PAPER-WEIGHT
PLATINUM PAPER-WEIGHT

note that 'BLANK PAGE' is the lowest level membership in the !UOA!. That rank is specially reserved for those who have yet to prove their awesomeness.

If you wish to be inducted into the Unofficial Order of Awesome, then feel free to message me, or a fellow member of the Committee, and we will do our best to review your work, and send you a reply, inducting you at such a rank as we see fit. BE FOREWARNED! If you do not have work of awesome-stlye or awesome-proportions, or a combination thereof, do not expect to be inducted at a level beyond a BLANK PAGE. This is the Unofficial Order of Awesome after all, and even the paper-weights are awesome. That's just the way it is.

Should you be inducted into the !UOA!, expect your induction notice to be posted by review on your most up-to-date awesome story. If you wish for your induction to remain publicly unnanounced - right off the bat- then please request as much in your initial PM. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not request for your induction to remain private, then your rank will be displayed in the review. Whether it is a 'BLANK PAGE' or not.

And with that, I, One Over Infinity, Origami Ink Slayer and Official Committee Member of the Unofficial Order of Awesome, bid you good day.


Random Quiz Time!

Survey?

Presumably a list of questions asked to multiple people for the sake of statistical analyses?

One: Grab the nearest book, open to page eighteen. Whats line four?

herds of ten to several hundred individuals (the Ultimate How It Works Encyclopedia's article on 'Grazing Animals')

Two: Stretch your left arm as far out as possible, what’s there?

The Ultimate How it Works Encyclopedia.

Three: What is the last thing you watched on Television?

Umm... Are we talking actual television, or me replaying entire episodes/series in my head?

Four: Without looking guess what time it is?

Hammer Time?

Five: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

An irritating air filtration system that seems dead-set on not letting me sleep.

Six: When was the last time you stepped outside, what were you doing?

Stepping outside? No. Wait... Stepping INSIDE.

Seven: Before you started this survey, what did you look at?

The profile page of the person who I yoinked the survey from... Durr.

Eight: What are you wearing?

... Um... I call pass.

Nine: Did you dream last night?

Yes, about strategic thermonuclear warfare on a futuristic city-dome-utilising world. It was rather educational. The environment kinda got screwed though.

Ten: When did you last laugh?

Now, laugh is a rather subjective term. You could be referring to the last time I chuckled, chortled, aha!'d, giggled (perish the thought), smothered a guffaw, actually guffawed, fake-laughed, really-laughed, or rolled on the floor curled up in a ball because I was laughing so hard that my abs hurt. Therefore I cannot answer this question.

Eleven: What is on the walls of the room you are in?

What walls?

Twelve: Seen anything weird lately?

Myself. Oh wait... No, actually, that's pretty accurate.

Thirteen: What do you think of this quiz?

It is not being properly applied in order to sort and gather its relevant (or rather irrelevant) statistical information.

Fourteen: What film did you last watch?

... that's a good question actually... Probably Brave, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

Fifteen: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?

Stocks, and an education... and maybe a pizzaria... or an ice cream parlour...

Sixteen: Tell me something I don't know about you:

When I'm in the mood, I build wierd and rather useless things; such as, a miniature fortress made entirely of frozen raw (cubed) meat. Or that wonderfully amazing pepper-shaker trebuchet I made out of items found in my pockets.

Seventeen: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of the guilt or consequences, what would you do?

I would make gravity a (sentience required) voluntary physical medium. (that way innanimate objects have no real say in the matter, but we would!)

Eighteen: Do you like to dance?

Only if there's music... No, wait... That's a lie... I've practically got Windows Media Player set up in my head, so I can just jive to my own music if I want...

Nineteen: George Bush:

I am Canadian, this question is irrelevant to me.

Twenty: Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her

Probably Courtney, or maybe Demi, or Déja, or possibly Bentha... It would all depend on what she turned out like...

Twenty One: Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?

Maybe Kurt, or Curtis, or David... Maybe not David... Maybe Occam.

Twenty Two: What do you want to say to God when you reach the pearly gates?

Ack. Have you considered redecorating?

BONUS QUESTION: When did you stop taking this seriously?

Off and on starting about question 4.


A note in regards to my writing habits: I am a very sporadic writer, and I never know when I'm going to find the inspiration for another chapter/installment. This tends to result in me writing spontaneous little bits of poetry, mainly just because I feel like it.

Yeah... I know... I'm just wierd like that.

In any case, read and review, and feel free to message me if you find something in my work that you'd like explained. Beware of long-winded explanations though, you have been warned!

A post-note that I feel needs to be added on to the end of all this: I currently have way too much inspiration, and way too little focus to devote it all to one thing. As such, you may have noticed that my planned/active stories list has been growing as of recent. I apologize for this, but I really want to make these stories happen. It's just a matter of finding the time and the determination to actually write them.

Another (somewhat random) post-note: Fanfiction.net has officially crushed my spirit by disabling my ability to use the squiggly 'approximately equal to' sign in my signatures 8'( ...
