Author has written 13 stories for Mass Effect.

Welcome to my little corner. :)

There was a time when I wanted to be a writer. (Or an artist. Or an archaeologist. Or... many other things.) Unfortunately, life took me in a different direction, and I didn't really write again until a few years ago, when I became obsessed with the Mass Effect universe and its characters, and found this wonderful world of fanfiction.

I mainly write about femShep and Garrus, but I also have a few OC stories, as well as tales about Mordin, Thane and Sparatus. Most of my stories have romance, fluff and humor in them, so if you like those, I hope you'll enjoy my stuff as well.

I appreciate all the reviews, follows and favorites and I answer each review with a PM. If you have any questions or comments about something, shoot me a PM - I like to chat. :)

You can also find me under the same name at AO3 (http://archiveofourown.org/users/Mordinette/works)


On another note, look at the awesome picture Tamy2323 drew for Serendipity. :)
