Author has written 9 stories for Mass Effect, and Elder Scroll series.

I started Beacon’s Effect as a simple writing exercise in university. I LOVED Mass Effect… as in, you have no idea how much I loved Mass Effect (Yes, yes, we all hated the ME3 endings… EVERYONE onboard the bandwagon!), but there were of course always things I would have done differently. There were a lot of unexplored characters and entire scenarios that were completely passed over or overlooked in the game canon. I keep a little notebook where I jot my thoughts down (it’s not regular enough to be called a journal or a diary), and I just started keeping my ideas for Mass Effect fanfiction in there.

Then, when challenged to create a re-imagining of our favorite story by my university prof, I typed up the first chapter of Beacon’s Effect. Readers and reviewers responded positively, and requested additional chapters. And the rest, as they say, is history. Looking back at the first chapters, I kinda cringe, as my writing style (I like to think, anyway) has greatly improved since then. But they serve to keep me humble, and are a reminder of where I started.

You guys are the reason behind what I write: the Muse, and the guiding force.

Obviously, I do not own Mass Effect, Dr. Who, or any of the other fandoms I have/may write fanfics about.

I must return to the stars again
Beyond the azure sky
And all I ask is a strong ship
And a helm to steer her by.
And the yoke's shudder and engine's sigh
And the bright stars shining
And the low wail of the jump-drive
And a new course plotting...

Please take a look at my favorite stories! They are what inspire me to write my own.

Surviving Hell on Earth by Jules Hawk reviews
Sargent Matt Stokes was part of Vega's team responsible for Shepard but when the Reapers arrived only Vega and Shepard made it off Earth. All Stokes has to do now is survive but he's once more given a task he never expected and he'll be damned if he doesn't give it his all. Bioware owns all things Mass Effect. Stokes and OCs are all mine.

Another Realm VII: Hellhounds by Katkiller-V reviews
The beginning of the end is finally here. Lawson is making her move inside of Cerberus, Shepard is due to wake up at any moment, and the offensive to finish the Geth off will begin soon. Now if the Collectors would stick to a schedule, if the Asari could not cavort with Leviathans, and if Vakarian would stop bloody glaring at me, this would be easy. Dammit... this won't be fun.

Mass Effect: Murphy's Law by TacoWrath reviews
Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. Ain't that the cold, hard truth. When everything inevitably does go wrong, strong men and women get to work and refuse to accept any other outcome, no matter how bleak. As those men and women, we'll be running into a lot more questions than answers, but then again... scientific minds thrive off discovery and problem-solving.

Mass Effect: Raven by R3dRaven reviews
I didn't know how I ended up on the Citadel. What I did know, was that my chances of survival were higher if I could find refuge aboard the NORMANDY. So I took a gamble, and joined the hunt for Saren. Unfortunately, real life is not as easy as a game - but still, I wouldn't have missed it for anything. / Mass Effect 1, Self-Insertion, logic/realistic approach, close to canon.

Surviving a World of Fiction by TREBOR117 reviews
I started a new game, only to end up inside that game instead. Now, I must survive a world meant to be fiction. I must use my knowledge to save this universe, and make sure Shepard prevails. But Saren was only the beginning, and there may be a threat far worse then the Collectors or their masters. A threat that I might not be ready for. The real question is: are they ready for me?
