Author has written 9 stories for Dragon Age, Mass Effect, and Fallout.

I write a little. I draw a little. I art direct for a living.

I'm a grown-up according to my age, but basically just a kid with disposable income. Boom. Adult.

And I appreciate every private message and review you fine people share with me. I am both inspired and humbled by your kindness.

I'll try not to fuck it up :B

--// PROJECT UPDATES //--

MASS EFFECT:

• My Traynor project, Queen's Gambit Accepted, is intended to span the fullness of Mass Effect 3, DLC included, with new and canon dialogue. I've never written or contemplated a same-sex dynamic before, so hopefully I do it justice. Top priority. New and Old Cover art courtesy of Fishbone76. Additional scenes from ALL chapters can also be found in her gallery. Check it out, they rock. As does the mentioned artwork from Chapter 17, Try It On.

Officially Unofficial is complete. However, the Citadel DLC opens up some delicious opportunities to explore in a supplemental fic. I am also considering an appendix of sorts to the final reunion scene involving all the vid-mails Ash sent Shepard while he was unconscious, as well as an epilogue further down the road about how their relationship evolved after the Reapers. Medium priority.

Ruthless Calculus has numerous vignettes in the works, but no self-appointed deadlines for that jerk. I find myself writing across all 3 Mass Effect games, but stringing together a cohesive timeline is proving difficult. On hold until further notice, and a low priority.

DRAGON AGE:

• DA:Unforgotten is now complete. The final M!Cousland/Leliana story in this arc is called DA:Homecoming. I am predicting it to be a shorter wrap-up, maybe 8 chapters, with an epilogue. Date still to be determined.

• I have completed the illustration mentioned in DA:Reminiscient, Chapter 7 of Leliana against a tree. This illustration recurs as a plot point in Unforgotten. Maybe more drawings if I'm feeling productive.

FALLOUT 3:

• I do not have any plans for any more writings on this series. Sorry. It was a one-time thing.

OTHER SERIES:

• I have been rolling a DisHonored fic around in my mind, but it has yet to take shape.

• I do adore the Legend of Zelda, but have not been successful translating that affection into writing (...or any writing that isn't total crap, anyway).

• The only TV series I have ever considered writing fanfic for is ReBoot. It's actually the first fic I ever started writing. On hold.

• I also have an original fantasy story in the works. I am still creating the world for it, as well as its people.

Diplomatic Gestures by Aicosu reviews
She didn't have need for an assassin, but she couldn't very well reject the gift without angering the Serkonos regency. They were a traditional people with a traditional mind.

Lowtown is a dangerous place at night. When Merrill is attacked by thugs, Hawke comes to save her, but Merrill is shaken by her ordeal.

Memoirs by Sharrukin reviews
Centuries after the end of the Reaper War, a respected asari scientist and political leader tells the story of her youthful adventures with the legendary Shepard. Fighting to save the galaxy is one thing, but figuring out human motivations can be much harder. Science fiction, action-adventure, and a romance on slow burn.

Still Game by Corentin IV reviews
After the War, Liara and Sam are together on Ilium. But all is not well with their relationship. And when Sam discovers the reason why, the fallout will change them both. Liara x Sam. M-Rated. Fem!Slash. Kinky. NOT at all related to the Sinchi trilogy.

Fisticuffs by Dingbats and Dweebs reviews
An attempt to fill out the relationship the game so poorly explained. FemShep/Traynor pre-relationship fluff. Chapter 1: It's not everyday Sam has to work in the hangar, but she's certainly glad she's present when Shepard and Williams show up for a friendly brawl. Chapter 2: Another mission has gone awry, but can our favortie Specialist save the day? Rated T for language

Pressure by Midnight Lion reviews
The Reapers are here. Shepard struggles with fear for her mother, guilt over being alive, and interspecies grudges. She can't unite the galaxy, or sort out her love life. At least she has a good friend to lean on. F!Shep/Kaidan, F!Shep/Thane

Encaenia by Corentin IV reviews
Encaenia ('consecration'): the annual ceremony at which the University of Oxford presents honorary degrees to distinguished alumnae and personages, and commemorates its benefactors. A year after the Reaper War, Sam and Shepard cross paths again. Romantic short story, but ultimately smut. Mature. FemShep x Traynor. Note: No relation AT ALL to 22 Sinchi.

Seven Deadly Sins, Mass Effect Style by Sun-Tsu Toriden reviews
There are Seven Deadly Sins: Pride. Wrath. Greed. Sloth. Lust. Envy. Gluttony. See which Characters in the ME verse embody them, and how it will lead them to wrack and ruin. Shepard is female, and any pairings are whatever you want to imagine. Rated T for now, probably until I hit any Lust stories.
