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

Hello all! I'm a long-time member of FanFiction.Net, and read/write here to keep my favorite stories alive.

I am a 25 year old graduate student, so I don't have a lot of free time, but I do enjoy writing short stories and one-shots when the mood strikes me. Happy reading!

Thank you to all who review my stuff! It's greatly appreciated and a great motivator!
