Author has written 11 stories for Mass Effect, and Dishonored.

A more than mildly obsessed Mass Effect writer. Writes mostly action and romance, with a little poetry. Mostly on the romance side for Mass Effect. Easily distracted by playing Mass Effect, Fallout 3, Dishonored, Splinter Cell, Hotline Miami, Last of Us, and occasionally Skyrim (Kinda love Bethesda. Like my love for Valve and Bioware.) Will keep writing. Nice little distraction. Feel free to review, email, request, etc.

I will probably share photos/more stories on my Tumblr, most of which will revolve around my fanfic. Feel free to look. (Just cut out the spaces to see it. ) gv-archangel . tumblr . c o m

Confirmed fanfics to come:

A date night for Tali and Shep after the Collectors, but before the split. Essentially their goodbye going into ME3.

Wedding piece for Tali and Shep. (see below.)

A look at Garrus, Shep, and Tali three-ish years after The End of A War.

Novelization of Dishonored. (See below.)

Some distant future piece for the crew in retirement many years after the games.

Possible fanfics:

Series of one-shots for FemShep and Garrus. Neither confirm nor deny anything there, mostly because I can't do it within my own head.

Really having an urge for Hotline Miami something, possibly about the relationship between Jacket and the Girl. Not sure how that'll go.

Wedding between Tali and Shepard: Finally got invited to a weeding in October, so I may be some weird person taking notes there for the story. That will help educate me on the subject. No promises on when it'll happen, but it will.

Dishonored piece: I want to novelize Dishonored. I want to make Corvo his own character with his own past, thoughts, and motivations. Will still pretty closely mirror the game with plenty of little detours, such as talks to Samuel on the boat and thinking of his life before. That will be in first person from Corvo's perspective, while there'll be several sections following Captain Curnow in his work trying to catch the masked assassin. Really want to do this one, but not entirely sure if should commit to it yet.

In the words of Tali'Zorah (Shepard) vas Rannoch "If they don't like it, they can go to hell."

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. She'd have to work around it. (A take on how Corvo Attano came to be the Royal Protector and the object of Jessamine's heart.) CorvoXJessamine mute!Corvo

Joke's On Who? by Rockycombo reviews
Miranda started it, and Shepard will end it. But not nearly as soon as you'd think. Lighthearted piece for the April Fool's competition on the forum Aria's Afterlife. It still counts even if it's not April First!

Merry Christmas, Tali! by Krazycatsful reviews

Talking to My Reflection
It's been over a month since the Reapers hit Earth, sending Shepard off the planet to save the galaxy again. And it's been almost eight months since the last time he saw Tali, who he's missing more by the day. Desperate to reach her, and even more so to feel like something is going right, he sends her a message. Rated T for some brief strong language (two F-bombs, little else).

Shore Leave reviews
After the Omega-4 Relay and a week of running from the Illusive Man, the Normandy crew needs rest. Docking on Illium becomes the best choice for well-earned shore leave for Shepard and his psychotic band of misfits. So let the alcohol, bad decisions, touching romances, and destruction of public property begin. Pic is a crop of Guardian Angel by RiptideX1090 from DeviantArt.

Fallen From Honor, From Grace reviews
Corvo Attano: former Lord Protector, framed for the murder of Empress Jessamine Kaldwin and the kidnapping of her daughter, Emily. Now freed from prison by the Loyalists, all he wants is Emily on the throne. Meanwhile, Curnow is trying to follow the masked assassin working through Dunwall. Essentially a Dishonored novelization making Corvo an actual character and other changes.

Music reviews
Music can be a powerful thing. Words take on a whole new meaning when combined with a simple rhythm and tune. So it shouldn't be any surprise that it plays a part in the lives of Tali'Zorah and Commander Aaron Shepard. All it takes is a piece of wood and metal to make an impression on their hearts. Starts of mid-ME1, ends early ME2. Cover pic: Shyailu of DeviantArt. Enjoy!

The Citadel Date Tali Deserved reviews
One of the biggest complaints about ME3, apart never really seeing Tali's face, is she didn't get time for shore leave with her boyfriend. Here is my way of fixing it. It takes place between the Rannoch campaign and Thessia. Still stays in my little Fanfic universe, which isn't much different from the game.

The End of A War reviews
After waking up from his indoctrination, Shepard is the only one who can still win the war with the Reapers. And after it's over, what then? Will feature the relationships and choices he's made until then, with a focus on Shepard and Tali. M rating only for brief language. Any reviews would be very nice.

The Stress of Change and Command reviews
An impulse write about Shepard dealing with the changes and betrayals in Mass Effect 2. Taking place just after the Lair of the Shadow Broker, when Liara comes up to visit. Still a few missions before Suicide Mission. No romance between Shep and Liara. End focus on Shepard and Tali. Pic: Mass Effect 3: Movie Poster by Arkis on DeviantArt.

A Surprise Question reviews
After destroying the Cerberus base, the Normandy will need almost fifteen hours to get to Earth. Shepard and Tali head up to the loft to sleep. Instead, Aaron Shepard asks a question Tali never saw coming. Spiritual successor to "Tali's Hangover." Slightly more poetic than intended, but went with it.

Tali's Hangover reviews
A short little story for Tali and Shep. After Horizon ME3 Horizon, obviously , Tali gets blind drunk in the lounge. The story picks up there. Tali passes out, and Shep carries her up to the loft to sleep it off. The rest is simply my imagination mixed and the situation of the game. Please review.

The Devil and the Unbreakable Team reviews
A small "epic poem," as it's called, about Shepard, Tali, and Garrus. They're names aren't there, but you can tell who is who. Putting the names in just made it lose something. Written from a male Shep, just before Harbinger on Earth. Comment, review, etc. Cover Picture is a screenshot from ME2 of my Shepard romancing Tali.

Biography of Tali'Zorah from a Paragon, Talimancer reviews
A biography of Tali'Zorah, from her childhood until Mass Effect 3. The last two paragraphs are "what if" about Shepard and Tali after the war for Earth. They ignore the end on the Citadel, just as a warning. I like my end better. Cover pic is a screenshot from ME2 of my Shepard romancing Tali.
