Author has written 9 stories for Mass Effect, and Waking the Dead.

Hi, I joined this site to have my writing skills critiqued. I am a die-hard Mass Effect fan so that will be the majority of my short stories. My first book is in to process of being published. I also like to read other people's work to learn different techniques. When I write, I put a lot of action in my story telling because I get bored very easily.

For those that don't know what Mass Effect is, it's a role-playing game for Xbox 360, developed by Bioware in 2007. You play as Commander Shepard; being either female or male. You go through out the game chasing a rogue special agent only to find out that the real threat is ancient sapient machines called Reapers who plan to wipe out all civilizations that have reached their evolutionary peak.

Through out your journey, you meet several different species of aliens; some of which become members of your squad. You can develope closely knit bonds with your teammates if you want, but overall premise of the game is that it solely based on the decisions that you make. That's the gist of the game, if you want to know more you can google it. With that being said, I would like to thank everyone who drops by and remember that constructive criticism is always welcomed!

Cant touch this yet! by simirulz reviews
Shepard has reluctantly agreed to appear on a womens chat show - her answers however, bring about a shocking revelation to one of her crew members. Set just after the battle for the Citadel. Song that accompanies this piece in my head is 'In my place' by Coldplay.

Commander Shepard and Garrus Vakarian. To those around them, an inevitability. But when two people who have trusted each other so unconditionally are afraid to take things beyond friendship, sometimes the only question left to ask is why?
