Author has written 7 stories for Myst/Riven, and Borderlands.

Hi, I'm opshop, previously known as ofperkins. I'm a fan of the adventure video game series Myst, as well as the role-playing FPS series Borderlands (an unusual combination, I know) and write fics for both fandoms. My primary work is my series of adaptations of the Myst games, "Strangers in Paradise", which replace the player character (the Stranger) with four characters. I also write shorter fics for both fandoms.

Follow my Twitter for more updates (@OpShopOwen), although I don't always remember to tweet my updates.

26/11/2015 - A whole bunch of updates to "Strangers in Paradise: To Whom it May Concern" in the last few days, totalling three chapters. This story is nearly finished, and I decided some time ago that this would be my last Strangers in Paradise story. I may revisit the series when Obduction comes out some time next year.

14/11/2015 - New Borderlands short, "Upgrade", is up today, featuring everyone's favourite (or least favourite) robot. I also have another Borderlands short in the works, this one featuring Moxxi, as well as a longer one that is still very much under construction that will feature Maya and Krieg (yes, as a couple - "Kraya"?). For those waiting on "Strangers in Paradise", chapter 9 of "To Whom it May Concern" has been bogged down in the murky depths of writer's block for a while now, but is now coming along fairly well. Expect an update on that front fairly soon.

27/05/2015 - Chapter 4 of "Retributi0n" is now up. This will be the last chapter of this story. Also, I'm planning another Borderlands fic for the future, but I'm intending to switch my focus back to "Strangers in Paradise" for the time being. Stay tuned.
