Author has written 3 stories for Forbidden Game series, and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.

I haven't updated on this site for a long time but I am hoping to get back into writing as this was so much fun when I used to do it!

The satisfaction of writing about characters we love is a great thing and I've read many characters in the past few years that I can't wait to bring into new worlds and plots. Fanfiction really is a unique experience, putting much-loved characters into new settings and watching them act. It is a testament to excellent authors that this site is so successful, because where would we be without them?

Enough speculation!

I am a big fan of sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian fiction. I'm also a keen gamer, with a love of puzzle games, problem solving and good storytelling. I'd quite like to live in Mass Effect.

I'm looking forward to writing some more and to reading more of these fabulous stories on here. There are some lovely imaginations on here and I can't wait to explore.

PRISM by kymbersmith90 reviews
Emma Swan had never given a second thought to how her colorful search history might look; until the day her friend teased her about it possibly attracting the attention of the NSA. So she certainly never expected to wake up one morning to an email from a RESTRICTED account.

Black and Bronze by YoroiNoKyojin reviews
A John Hancock x female Sole Survivor Story. From how they met to where they end up, this tells it all. Action, Gore, Romance, Comfort, Angst, and Fluff - you'll find it here! Includes many of the NPCs and Companions as well. There are many canon adventures in this story as well as entirely new ones! Rated M for smut and death.

Tuesday by Lady Callista reviews
Oliver knew it sounded crazy, and he was the one it was happening to. He had no idea how to tell his friends he was reliving the same day over and over. He also had no clue how to stop it. Set early in S3, Olicity, Groundhog Day challenge.

Doing A Big Thing Badly by Alanine reviews
A mostly canon-compliant, somewhat abbreviated, definitely self-indulgent re-telling of Mass Effect 2 from Garrus' perspective. As a Spacer Sole Survivor, it was always hard for my Shepard to swallow working for Cerberus in any capacity. Maybe TOO canon-compliant, with lots of dialogue from the game. Some additional scenes, some minor romance deviations to increase DRAMA. ;)

Legacy of One by Salmon Center reviews
AU. Where fallen stars are after images, never meant to return. But there is debt to be paid to Commander Alenko. And so here Shepard is: in the limelight and in the clutches of the Reaper War. Set after ME 1 till the end of ME 2. Where Shepard isn't the Commander we know.

From Cali to the Commonwealth by omninerd90 reviews
Cass is in for the shock of her life when one minute she's falling asleep in her tiny LA apartment, and the next she's running for her life in the middle of the post-apocalyptic Commonwealth. Now she's stuck in the world of Fallout with no idea how she got there or how to get home, and she's going to need to make friends fast if she wants to survive. Hancock x Fem OC, slow burn.

Everyone in the world is born with a mark on their skin, a mark that matches only one other person in existence. These two souls are bound together, irrevocably and irreparably bound for all time. Felicity Smoak always wondered what it would be like to find her soulmate. She just never expected it to happen quite like this...

The Stories We Never Told by Panda Nova reviews
The stories he told the Seeker were a small fragment of Hawke, he didn't share her weakness, her pain, her guilt, or her love. Those were for Varric and Varric alone, more precious than any treasure, things that he would never share. The millions of moments and stories he never told, the lasting testament to the woman he found, lost, and hopes to find again.

F!Hawke's first name, a mystery to everyone that isn't part of her immediate family. Varric plays her game, curiosity getting the best of him. MadDoggyClown thank you for the fantastic inspiration! [Recently revamped to make way for Part Two! Also, lemon reinserted, you've been warned.]

Liquid Courage by littleblackdog reviews
Now he was being pawed at by a very drunk, very handsy, very heavy mage. Not that he'd ever call Hawke heavy to her face, or anywhere she might hear him, or out loud ever. It was... an unconventional sort of courtship. Varric/F!Hawke.
