Author has written 1 story for Mass Effect.

Haryo.

I am a classical musician based in the United States and Switzerland. To help pay some of the more outrageous bills, I also write professionally for an arts journal. Even though I am restricted to writing non-fiction for the purposes of my work, fiction - particularly sci-fi - has always held a special place in my heart. I have played computer games for a few years now as a means of decompressing, and have found a rich source of writing material in almost every title I've tried.

1/24/13 - Now with beta-reading powers! What has science done?? I'll be accepting a few commissions at a time (PM me if you are interested); just be advised that RL has me in its unmerciful grip at the moment.

For those who may be curious...

The Commentary of TOS for KS by Brittany Diamond reviews
While going through every episode top to bottom, I'll be looking for evidence that supports K/S and also discussing the arguments against it. Serious about the argument, ridiculous about everything else. M for language. Yay 60s.

Kink Meme response. Saving the galaxy and the rest of the universe can probably produce some tension. And that calls for a massage. A joint-cracking, muscle bruising, blissful full-body massage. Mordin/Femshep sort of .

Paint You Up in my Badass Love, Baby by Sleeveen reviews
Tongue-in-cheek fill for a strange request over at the Kink Meme. Prompt: Mordin's tattoos are not actually tattoos, also, it has to be Mordin/Fshep. Weird, I know. But bear with me. Fill is humorous, tender and a little sexy. It's a little ridiculous too.

Music of the Spheres reviews
Mordin receives a pleasant surprise late one evening when he hears human classical music filtering into the lab from the Normandy's top floor. Not only does it lead him to an astonishing conclusion about Collector forces, but it also offers him a glimpse into the reclusive Commander's singular ethos. Shepard/OC back-story. Rated T for thematic elements and language.
