Author has written 5 stories for Mass Effect.

I'm just a fan of Mass Effect, who was inspired to write my own fiction, using the universe and story, with some changes here and there. I've found writing is a good way to escape from being 'mum' for a bit!

Game-wise I only really love to play Mass Effect and Dragon Age as I find the lack of character interaction in other games frustrating after Bioware's offerings! Currently, the only thing I watch on TV at the moment is Castle, and Game of Thrones. Used to enjoy Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, and BBC's version of Merlin. Enjoy listening to Two Steps From Hell, and other epic scores! Currently reading an Ann Aguirre novel.

My first attempt at writing, 'Inescapable', centred on James Vega and Femshep, following the Mass Effect 3 storyline, and with an altered ending (which won't stand up after the Leviathan revelation!)

My second, 'Kismet', involves Zaeed Massani and a new character, set within the events of Mass Effect 3, but with a separate story.

My third, 'Struggle', is the epic story of Terra Shepard and Kaidan Alenko from ME1 to ME3 and a little after, again with an alternative ending while sticking close to the one Bioware offered (Kaidan is there at the end for starters! - love to know what you think of my version!).

'Resistance' (a sequel to 'Struggle') - The Leviathans are back and they want to destroy the one person who threatens their reign - the daughter of Shepard and Kaidan.

NOW POSTING - 'Fractured' - a Terra and Kaidan story.

Be assured that once I start something I have to finish it, and I like to update regularly.

I really hope you enjoy these. Please let me know! Positive feedback is good for my soul!

Feel free to PM me if you have a request or question.

Thanks, Emma.

Careful What You Wish For by Jules Hawk reviews
He'd worshiped her from afar, always wanted the chance to say hello, maybe to serve under her. Then his mission had gone horribly wrong and he blamed her, resented her for it. Or did he. James Vega finds himself in a position he never expected and has to come to terms with his own pain and doubt. Bioware owns all thing Mass Effect, I'm just playing in their sandbox.

Distance by Vorcha Girl reviews
Thrown back together when the Reapers attack, Shepard and Kaidan are still very much in love, but they struggle to reconnect and bridge the distance that has grown between them. A romance that follows their journey through ME3 as they try to put their fears and inhibitions behind them and say those three little words to each other. (Femshep/Kaidan)

Lights in the Sky by Vorcha Girl reviews
James Vega had dreamed about Rennah Shepard for years and always hoped to meet her, but when he's tasked with keeping her safe on Earth he gets more than he bargained for; she's argumentative, stubborn and sexy as sin. Joining the crew of the Normandy, fighting the Reapers and falling in love was never part of the plan... (Vega/FemShep - Rated M for a reason)

The Reason by tlcinbflo reviews
It was supposed to be a simple shakedown cruise. It was so much more. She was supposed to be his Commanding Officer. She became so much more. How could Kaidan Alenko know this one mission would change his life so completely? How could he know this one woman would alter the course of his future so fully?

The Path to Ilos by Ms Sticha reviews
The path to Ilos is long. This leaves plenty of time for Shepard to decide how far she's willing to go, and how many rules she is willing to break. Rated T for slight language, but that is subject to change.

Sense and Flexibility by Roarkshop reviews
The story of Garrus and Femshep as told by me. Lots of off-canon. Sequels incoming. TW: It's been brought to my attention that some of Garrus' more animalistic behavior in some scenes have caused panic attacks for victims of abuse. I am so sorry for anyone who had a similar reaction. SO sorry. I would like to make any new readers aware of this beforehand. Thank you.

Out of Destruction by Jules Hawk reviews
Second chances. He'd never believed in them but now he had one. Was he brave enough to use it? Could he be good enough? Would she feel the same? A Shoker story. Rated M for language, these are marines and probably future smut.

A Fate Worse Than Death by DirtyFox2 reviews
The Reaper War has ended and Garrus and Vega return to the Citadel to recover Commander Shepard's remains. However, a surprise is in store for them that soon leads them on an expanding mystery across the galaxy to find Shepard and finally lay him to rest. Plenty of familiar old faces. Rated M for violence, language and suggestive themes.

Fractured reviews
The Reapers have been dealt with, and so too their creators. It should mean that Shepard and Kaidan can have a little peace. But something else lurks in the background that threatens to tear them and the galactic community apart. Follows 'Struggle' and 'Resistance'.
