Author has written 12 stories for Borderlands, and FTL.

Hello, gentle reader! If you're here, that probably means you read one of my stories, so thanks a bunch! I don't know what to put on these author pages without sounding completely self-indulgent, so feel free to drop a message if for some reason you've got a burning question you want to ask me, or even if you just want to chat-talk. I'm harmless, for the most part - and I could use the social interaction.

I have an AO3 account and, while I don't have anything posted there yet, I expect in the event that I ever get anything else finished here, it'll be cross-posted there. Maybe someday I'll even polish up some old stuff and cross-post that, too.

About the Author: Civilized Lee is slowly working on the end of Nobody's Heroes, after realizing the story will not write itself through her own sheer force of will. Because she is horribly irresponsible, she also has several other short projects she is working on, and hopes to publish soon.

Night Lies reviews
There's something about the night that makes it easier for her to tell those lies. Or maybe it's just that in the dark, people are more willing to believe them.

Tactical Miscalculations reviews
A dramatization of the comedy of errors that occurs pretty much any time I play this game. Told from the point of view of a crew member having to watch all the terrible decisions made by his captain (i.e. me). Rated T because I swear like a sailor.

The Sirens Aren't Alright reviews
We throw stones into the water, ignorant of the ripples we create, convincing ourselves we are hopelessly alone, even when we're together. No matter how close she gets to another Siren, it can never give her the closure she wanted.
