Author has written 6 stories for Mass Effect.

Greetings Internet! If you are reading this, then I'm guessing you have become interested in one or more of my stories. I've never been very good good at writing bio's, so I'll keep this brief.

As you may have noticed, most if not all of my stories are set within the Mass Effect Universe. I fell in love with the franchise years ago, and while I will be among the first to help point out some of it's problems and flaws, it will forever remain as one of all time favorite game series of all time. Even years after the trilogy ended Mass Effect still occupies a good chunk of my mind, and I spend a little bit more time than what would be considered healthy thinking about it in my free time.

In regards to my fanfics, I like to write about about scenarios or character relationships that I feel don't get enough limelight. A prime example of this is my main story, Soldiers. Ashley Williams is one of my favorite romances in-game, and throughout the years I've felt as though her character didn't get the treatment it deserved in the games, nor does she receive as much acclaim on Fanfiction as I would like. Soldiers is my remedy to that, where I get to fill in the blanks and hopefully entertain some people while I flounder around and act like I'm an actual professional writer.

So please feel free to read any of my stories! They're all typed and baked with love :). Or that might be the Hallex... Anyway, enjoy your stay, and don't be afraid to review or PM me and tell me what you think.

Cheers! And happy reading!

It starts with a mug of hot chocolate. That in itself isn't unusual; the decadent Earth beverage is something Shepard has an odd fondness for, and he fixes it for Liara on occasion. But this one is different. He brings it to her in a red mug with a green conifer painted on the side, and there is a strange red and white striped hooked cane lolling around the rim like a straw.
