Author has written 25 stories for Supernatural, StarTrek: Deep Space Nine, StarTrek: The Next Generation, X-Men: The Movie, Mass Effect, Covington Cross, Bates Motel, Lost, and X-Force.

Current Stories:

Dark Messiah – When Commander John Shepard is killed on Noveria, his twin brother James is asked to step in.

The Passage – Life on a slave-ship, at its finest. LOST tale about life on the Black Rock, told from Richard's POV.

Triangle – Not your typical X-Force love-story. Or any sort of typical love-story. In fact, not even a love-story at all. Character pieces post-issue #7. Possible updates after additional issues depending on what the comic writers and artists give me to work with.

Stories on hold over the summer:

Restoration – A Deep Space Nine/Cardassian restoration story. Updating every other Wednesday (resuming in the Autumn).

Stories indefinitely shelved whilst I try to figure out whether I'm going to re-write them or remove them:

Asim – Mass Effect fic, pre-ME1 back-story.

My Town – Bates Motel, post-season 1.


I can also be found on WordPress ( and Twitter (@MrUrbanSpaceman)


Everybody wants to know about the author.

Do they?

Well, okay. I've been writing fanfiction for several years now. I started because I wanted to take a break from writing 'original' fiction (is there any such thing, these days?) and I just kept going. Until recently I only ever wrote for games, under a different profile that's been knocking around now since about 2008 (no, I'm not going to tell you what it is) and I created this one because I felt like branching out into TV and film.

That's about it, really. I don't really do much on twitter, so I wouldn't bother following me there if I were you. My WordPress is mostly for flash-fiction challenges and making reports to my homeworld (oh, did I forget to mention that I'm an extraterrestrial visitor to your planet?) which you may or may not find interesting. I enjoy getting reviews (who doesn't?) especially if they're constructive. The more constructive, the better. But I'm not going to beg you for reviews, because when it comes down to it, I write for my own entertainment and to keep me slightly sane. If I can keep other people entertained (and slightly sane) whilst I'm doing it, that in itself is its own reward.

Live long and prosper, earthlings.
