Author has written 12 stories for Mass Effect, Warehouse 13, Harry Potter, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

At the moment I write almost exclusively in Bioware's Mass Effect universe.

Nearly all of my fics are rated M for a good reason - most contain lashings of foul language, violence, and the occasional foray into tasteful smutty content. I don't use a beta so my apologies for any spelling or grammatical errors. Also, I write using New Zealand English so you'll note a few spelling differences from American English.

One of my favourite elements of writing fan-fiction is the dialogue with fellow writers and readers. I love exploring ideas and being offered suggestions, tips, corrections etc - so drop me a line via feedback or PM. Usually if I dislike something (self-inserts, god-moding) I'll just avoid it.

There's never enough time to write. If I could I'd play around with: Dragon Age (Hawke/Isabela or FemWarden/Leliana); FF XIII (Fang/Lightning); Tomb Raider (Lara/Sam); Avengers (Agent Hill/Black Widow); and Rookie Blue (Gail/Holly). I used to write Willow/Tara AU and you'll find most of my old work here.


Current machinations:

Architect of Fate is the post-war sequel to Catalyst of Fate (Femshep/Liara; Ashley/Miranda). AoF is where most of my creative energies are directed.
The third installment in the planned trilogy will be Daughter of Fate.

Broken Goddesses is a FemShep/Miranda AU (pre Reapers) unrelated to the Fate universe. I try to update once a month but it's a side project.

Pieces of Fate is a series of one-shots based in my Fate universe. Updated sporadically. I'm also happy to take any prompts for a one-shot that would fit within established Fate canon.

Queen's Gambit Accepted by fahRENheit2006 reviews
Specialist Samantha Traynor, one of the Alliance's best and brightest, was relatively content working in Alliance R&D. But then... the Reapers came. Full of action, profanity, sarcasm, friendship, and gripping chess matches that will leave you breathless. Ch 27: Sam is dragged along for a very complicated confrontation. The Normandy Traitor is the least of Sam's worries.

Seduction Theory by ShadowBlazer reviews
Samantha Traynor thought she'd figured out the general formula for getting a girl. Step one: Lure her in. Step two: She's not sure. Something exciting happens. Step three: Success! So, why is Shepard not cooperating with her plans? Not related to Freud's theory. Very not related.

Of Sheep and Battle Chicken by LogicalPremise reviews
My AU retelling of ME1, with a darker feel. The evolution of a dangerous renegade with zero personality and all the empathy of a car tire to a real person, and changing the story of ME1 so that it's better shaped to fit a darker, more Paragade universe and a more realistic view of Cerberus and the Citadel Council. Pairing is FShep/Liara. M rating for graphic violence.
