Welcome to the Minstrel's Tales!

I'm not much for profiles, but I'm glad you found your way here. I'm a very spirited writer of fanfiction and original stories ever since I wrote my first Sailor Moon story when I was 12 years old. Most of my free time is spent reading, gaming or watching movies, and then writing whatever comes to my mind about them down. For years now I have been too shy to publish any of them, but since my stories are reaching considerable amounts of pages, I decided to publish them and just see where it goes.

Please note a few things before reading... First of all, English is not my native language, and I apologize for any errors in grammar or spelling or... maybe strange use of words... jumbled sentences... It might happen a lot, there is nobody who can proof-read my stories for me. Please don't hate on that, I try to stay correct :/

My stories are all romances and usually contain a lot of fluff, angst, drama and feels all over the place.

Even though I mostly try to keep a character's genuinity and personality in my stories, they might seem out of character to you. You'll have to find out for yourself if the characters are true enough :)

And lastly, I refrained from publishing my stories for a long time because I feared that people might really hate them or criticize everything about them. Please don't pick my stories apart. I'd love to hear your opinion about them in reviews - as long as they are constructive in some way.

Short summaries of my work:

  • Resolution
  • is a Dragon Age: Inquisition fanfiction with a Rogue Archer Inquisitor Lavellan & Cullen romance that is set during the game's main events (so watch out for major spoilers, also many hints to Trespasser!). Fluff, fluff everywhere! Mostly canon & lore-conform, also very, very much pining and feels. And drama & disaster later. Beware! Rated M for several chapters (as always, I don't write wildly explicit stuff) and some description of violence. Main story complete, edited 19/19 Chapters. COMPLETE

  • Redemption
  • is a Dragon Age: Inquisition, POST-TRESPASSER fanfiction with a Solas & Mage Original Female Character romance that is set twenty-five years after the events of Trespasser. Fluff, drama, angst, everything! Abduction & Beauty and the Best themed. Pre-story canon applies & lore-conform, also very, very much pining and feels. And drama & disaster later. Beware! Rated M for several chapters (as always, I don't write wildly explicit stuff) and some description of violence. In Progress. Updates about once a week.

  • Ad Astra Per Aspera
  • is a Mass Effect fanfiction with a Paragon Shepard & Garrus love-story as the main plot. It shows how their relationship develops in the most dire time of the Reaper Wars, and is set at the end of Mass Effect 3 (so it contains major spoilers!), before the assault on the Illusive Man's base, and with consideration of the Citadel DLC. Also much fluff. Rated M to be sure, for some not-exactly-explicit-scenes and description of violence. Incomplete.

  • The Songbird
  • is a Hunger Games story with two pairings: Katniss & Peeta and Haymitch & an Original Character. This retells the events of Mockingjay much more freely and differently, has some fairly big plot alterations (but let's say the "Main Plot Line" is close to the book) and is mostly written from Peeta's point of view. He is rescued by a mysterious person during his hijacking and has to find his way back to Katniss, while he learns about one of the Capitol's greatest, most gruesome secrets. Incomplete.

  • Lightbringer
  • is a Marvel's Thor/Avengers fanfiction that tells the love-story between Loki and Ljosira, a dragon who is sent to Asgard to evaluate the true circumstances of his siding with the Chitauri. The two have a history from long before, something that ties them together for life, no matter how they might resist. The story also has a little Sif/Thor/Jane triangle-fluff in it. And all my swooning over Loki (Shoo, you know you love him too!) M for later reasons, although don't expect wildly explicit stuff; Incomplete. I am planning to finish this one - the main story is pretty far along. I just do not know when...

    Read, enjoy, review & fav, and if you don't like it... then these are not the stories you're looking for [Waves her hand casually]
