Author has written 16 stories for Halo, State of Decay, The Thing, Doom, Gone Home, Recess, Star Wars, Half-Life, Unreal Tournament, Misc. Games, and Slender.

Hello, I am Obsidian. I've been writing for this site, off and on, for eighteen years. (Holy crap! That's literally over half my life now!) In 2013, I took a long hiatus due both to burnout and a shift in focus to self-publishing original work in an attempt to pay my bills doing what I love. Since then, I wrote a fifteen novel series and almost went crazy doing so. In the years since leaving this site, I never stopped wanting to write fan fiction.

Now I'm back! I'm going to be writing again for the foreseeable future. Below is a list of links to my social media that I'll keep up to date on.

Thanks for reading my works!

One last thing: Reviews really help.

CURRENT STATUS (05.2022): I'm still dealing with some stuff but I was hit by inspiration and I've begun work on a brand new horror story based off the game IRON LUNG. Still going to try and get some more chapters for DOOM out.

[This section covers my novelized versions of games I love and is, at present, my biggest section. That will change.]

THE THING 3: ASSIMILATION [Complete] (Technically not a novelization.)
GONE HOME [Complete]
-Episode Zero [Complete]
-Episode One [Complete]
-Episode Two [Complete]
-Episode Three [In Progress]


[My Half-Life universe chronicles the adventures of Eric Bishop, a guard at Black Mesa, alongside the games. Eventually, I will run out of games since Valve gave up, the lazy f*kheads. (I don't count the VR game.) Then I'll have to figure out where to go with the story from there. But that's a long way off.]

BISHOP'S WAR [Complete]


[This is gonna be my big one. This is going to start out as kind of a love letter to the original Halo Trilogy, and then continue from there. Fans of The Rookie Chronicles will particularly enjoy this universe, I think, as Nerves of Steele is basically a spiritual successor to The Rookie Chronicles. (Which was itself a spiritual successor to the original Alex Steele.) You'll see some of the same stuff, a lot of the same crossovers, same characters, but a great deal more expansion on all of it. I plan to take my time and write it all out. I fully expect to be writing this universe all through my 30s. Hell, probably through my 40s.]


[This is the main focus. It follows Alex Steele, a fifteen year Marine who has been fighting the Covenant for half his life. It picks up as he arrives at Installation 04 and just goes and goes and goes from there.]



[This series is smaller and deals with more out there horror crossovers. It's very horror themed and it will cross over a few times with Nerves of Steele.]



[I have some ideas that, for the moment, don't quite fit anywhere else, but they are part of this universe.]



[Originally, I was only going to write KOTOR III. However, after writing And There Was Another, not only did I get some ideas for future titles, I realized it'd be really cool to make a sort of shared universe between the two.]

AND THERE WAS ANOTHER II: Ghosts That Linger [Announced]
AND THERE WAS ANOTHER III: Untitled [Announced]
KOTOR III [Announced]


[Some fan fictions have no larger agenda, no big universe they fit into. They don't fit anywhere else. They're just ideas I had. These will definitely be rare, but they do exist, so I figured I'd make a section for them.]

DREARY [Complete]
IRON LUNG II [In Progress]

Not All Who Wander by Quirel reviews
At the dawn of the Great Schism, Truth's betrayal pits the Elites against the Brutes, and the civil war is tearing the Covenant's most holy city apart. Dark forces threaten to spread from the Sacred Halo, and the last High Prophet contemplates galactic genocide. This is not that story. This story is about a Jackal merchant, who just wants to save his crew and get out of town.
