I will make (hopefully) a number of Mass Effect and Halo fanfics. And sometimes, parodies and crossovers. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy writing them. Cheers. Who said Australians couldn't write?

Series in production:

For A Better Tomorrow (Inprogress): The ultimate fight for galactic survival. The stories of Marcus Lee Shepard, Tali'Zorah and Garrus Vakarian as they fight for a better tomorrow, the end an unknown only they'll be able to forge. Hardships lie and alliances are built. But for that Better Tomorrow to exist, there are requirements; there will be an Enigma to hatch, a Prophecy to complete, a Requiem to carry out, a Holocaust to stop and an Ultimatum to conclude. ArchReaperN7's interpretation of the Mass Effect franchise, from Mass Effect 1 to post-ME3.

Enigma: Complete.

Prophecy: Complete.

Requiem: Complete.

Holocaust: In progress.

Ultimatum: Unreleased.

Jacon and Friends (Stalled):Why not? Welcome to the fanfiction of horrors; where you can either be creeped out, or thoroughly amused. Caution: Possible death could result from reading this awfully funny fanfic.

A Draconis Dierum Saeculi: To avoid confusion on the name, 'A Draconis Dierum Saeculi' is Latin for 'Chronicles of the Dragon Age,' which, in English, roughly translates into 'Days of the Dragon.' Anyway, this series will be similar to my For A Better Tomorrow series in that it will be a novelization of the games (in this case, Dragon Age, not Mass Effect) while also being my own adaptation of them. Just like FABT, this series will follow the games (Origins, Awakening, II and Inquisition), but with my own additions. I hope you enjoy!

Wardens and a Throne: Follows the events of Dragon Age: Origins.

An Architect and a Mother: Follows the events of Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening.

Wealth and Love: Follows the events of Dragon Age II.

Inquisitors and Demons: Self-explanatory. Follows the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition.

A Draconis Dierum Saeculi: Wardens and a Throne: In progress.

A Draconis Dierum Saeculi: An Architect and a Mother: Unreleased.

A Draconis Dierum Saeculi: Wealth and Love: Unreleased.

A Draconis Dierum Saeculi: Inquisitors and Demons: Unreleased.

Warrior Ethos: 2 by 1054SS325MP reviews
The sequel to Warrior Ethos, this is a retelling of ME2. It has ManShep x Tali and FemShep x Garrus, and is designed to be very realistic, etc. A little bit AU. You don't need to read the first story, but it helps. It uses Calinstel's ideas on the quarian culture. Focuses more on the relationships and less on the missions. The information page is a separate story of mine.

Promises Made, Promises Kept by f1manoz reviews
A post-ME3 story. A post-destroy ending. Drama and fluff. Laughter and tears. And, in the end, a simple, and hopefully heart-warming story, of a love between two people.

"I love you. And I want you here . . . with me."

In Love and War by Rockycombo reviews
Shepard and Tali's relationship grows during the fight with the Reapers, but that doesn't mean their story ends after they deal with the ancient synthetics. Reapers were simple; you can just shoot them in the head area. But that doesn't work for fans, admirals, or the past. Focuses on Tali/Shep pairing, rated M for sexual content and language.
