Author has written 29 stories for Gears of War, Mass Effect, and Destiny.

I've hit a writing block so I decided I would play with other people's characters for the time being.

If I can make them work for me, I should be able to get my own to jump through hoops, right? It's been a few months since I've been able to write anything, so please don't expect too much from my writing. I do the best I can with what I have!

Like what you read? Leave a review or send me a message! I'll probably be writing in several fandoms.


My name is Addison and I'm a Gearhead. I adore Gears of War and just about anything attached to it. I started writing Gears fanfiction because I noticed there's a lack of fics in the fandom, and it appears that this fandom gets a bad rep sometime. I wanted to help fill the void.

A Mer of her word by Ziggard reviews
Elenwen is the first Emissary of the Aldmeri Dominion in Skyrim. She is an excellent diplomat, but with Estormo missing, his young fiancée whining on her doorstep and the Thalmor being subjected to an alarming amount of attacks, she only really experiences the responsibility of her function and the disfunctionality of the other two Emissaries.

Contagion reviews
[AUish] "Retiring to Azura should have ensured my place in luxury but Prescott had other plans for me. He stomped all over the head scientist's toes to make sure I got my hands dirty with this project." Dissecting a Locust corpse has never been so much fun!

Reminiscing reviews
Yet there was a flaw with plain, boring Liara T'Soni being with the admirable Maxine Shepard. She was . . . weak. Not good enough for Shepard's legacy. So Liara became stronger.
