Author has written 34 stories for Lord of the Rings, Metroid, Harry Potter, and Dragon Age.

I'm a high school English teacher by day, and a rogue fanfiction author by night. I believe that aging is mandatory, but growing up is optional, thus I've chosen not to grow up. I'm a gamer, and love seeing beyond the puzzles and platforming to the stories beneath, and the characters involved. Between my literary background and my musical one, I wind up involving a good deal of allusions from all over the place. I write fiction, both fan and original, and sate my love of analytical writing over on my blog, "Gamer, Writer, Cynic" at http://jayrain.wordpress.com.

I write primarily for the Dragon Age fandom.

Cailancentric Fics:

Returns a King: NaNoWriMo 2013 project. I love Cailan so much, it was only a matter of time before I wrote my own AU where he survives. Cailan made many mistakes before and during Ostagar. But whether by fate or chance, he now has a second opportunity to make things right. But a second chance doesn't mean it will be easy. His road will be filled with more choices and consequences, where he'll have to apply his lessons, and learn new ones. 10/9/13: Finally posted a new chapter!

Sneaking: 9/12/11: Thank you SOOO MUCH to everyone who's reviewed, and the alerts and favorites. I am really honored, and both humbled and gratified by the continued support. Really, it means so much :D A collection of linked shorts depicting a young Cailan's curiosity and search for the truth after one particularly curious trip to Redcliffe... It's character exploration through Writing in many different styles, voices, and perspectives. It opens up after "Second Born", and will continue up through Ostagar. Complete.

Timeline for my Cailan and Alistair stories:

Questing Eyes

Second Born

Sneaking

The Upper Hand (takes place around "Sneaking" chapters 19-21ish)

A Servant's Place (set around chapter 21-22ish of "Sneaking")

Beautiful Prison (set between chapters 22 and 23 of "Sneaking")

(*Please check out http://rottenragamuffins.deviantart.com/art/Alistair-Knight-Templar-180108434 for the visual inspiration behind Beautiful Prison!)

Stain On Your Soul (Post-Sneaking)



Fianna-centric Stories: Fianna Cousland, rogue from Highever, and my personal favorite Warden. Her stories:

Rogue Heart: Fianna's origin story, going back to her early years and proceeding up through the escape from Highever. Connected shorts.

The Hurricane Trilogy

Three novel-length fanfictions set in the Dragon Age universe and centering on Grey Warden Fianna Cousland; the trilogy title and all three books' titles are taken from songs whose lyrics inspire the themes of the story being told. The title of the trilogy as a whole comes from the 30 Seconds to Mars song of the same name.

1. This Is War: Set in the Dragon Age fandom, it follows Fianna Cousland through her Joining ritual and all that ensues. I have included some dialogue from the game, and utilized inspiration from the 30 Seconds to Mars song of the same name, which plays during the Origins credits. It is the first of a projected trilogy. I have followed Fianna through the game, but as some things in-game don't always make sense, I've taken some liberties. I've also added those conversations and moments that don't happen in the game, and those thoughts the Warden may be thinking as he/she embarks on a quest to save the world. More than a retelling of the game, this is a story of a young adult who shoulders a great burden; but the greatest of all is discovering who she is, what she's capable of, and remaining true to that. Complete.

2. Hurricane: In the process of being revised and edited...oh yeah, and finished. Should probably finish it. Follows Fianna through Awakening.

3. Embrace the Storm: NaNoWriMo 2013 project. 50,000 words in, and will probably be about twice this long once it's all done, including revisions and edits. Includes material from Soldier's Peak and Witch Hunt, as well as dipping into DA2 territory... and maybe pre-Inquisition.
