Author has written 2 stories for Mass Effect.

Hey there! Welcome to my profile. I'm Twisted Platypus, a 23-year old student from Sydney, Australia.

I'm not quite sure what to say here, other than to encourage you to read really good stories (hopefully mine fall into that category)! So check out the stories I've written and the one's I've favorite'd, because they're all great. Regardless, have an awesome day! :D


The Transmigration Effect- A SI fic focusing on Mass Effect 1, recently completed! Sequel now up!

The Reclamation Effect- Sequel to The Transmigration Effect, continuing the story of Parker as he and Shepard's team strives to save the galaxy from the Reapers. Updates fortnightly on Sundays.


For anyone who doesn't know what a platypus is, it's an egg-laying mammal native to Australia, which should be impossible. When the Brits discovered it and had it send in for analysis, the doctor thought it was a prank-animal, made of a lot of different skins sewn together. Nope, it's real. It's also poisonous, and can see if you're there even in pitch darkness by seeing electric fields. Seriously. Do we make any animals down under that aren't both retarded-looking and absurdly awesome?

Gloriously used in 8-Bit Theater, from whence I derive the name.

Massed Up 2 by DelVarO reviews
Shepard is dead, everyone went their own way and it's Thursday again. Now I have two full years to get myself ready for her return. Get myself back into better shape, stockpile some weapons... simple enough, right? With the way things were going so far, I think I should have expected that nothing will ever be so simple.

Wolf in Shepard's Clothing by cmitts93 reviews
My name is Nathaniel Wolfert. The day everything changed was when I was handed a gun and told to kill someone. This is my story and how I altered the events of the galaxy. OC insert with several other OC's sprinkled in throughout. Changed the story to an M rating because of sequences of graphic violence in later chapters.

Overlady by EarthScorpion reviews
"A new overlady, you say? She's a little short and flat-chested, although her temper is impressively vile. Oh well. Needs must when needs must. Too long have the lands of Halkeginia gone without true Evil. There are fluffy bunnies and happy ponies all over the place, frolicking! It makes me quite sick! No, it doesn't matter if she wants to or not. Because Evil always finds a way."

Hitchups by The Antic Repartee reviews
Hiccup didn't see the point in stopping Astrid as she ran off towards his village—towards his father—with his most desperately protected secret. He was leaving anyway. A coming-of-age tale. Deviates from movie. Borderline bromantic-comedy.

Ever After Anonymous by the extroverted recluse
It was supposed to be an easy way to make money. They were all crazy, after all. And I thought I could "help." They came to me - it seemed like a good idea. Drug problems, bestiality, hair loss due to stress...and a pocket full of cash for me. It should have been the best idea of the century. Not.
