Author has written 8 stories for Elder Scroll series, Dragon Age, and Assassin's Creed.

May 20 Update: I know, I haven't updated my profile in ages. I'm trying really hard to focus on finishing Spark right now, because it's almost 4 years old 0_0


Okay, my bio... I've always had stories in my head, so you could say I've been writing my whole life. It's an impulse I can't stop, you know, that endless mental tinkering of "What if she said..." or "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if..." It's that other reality of my own creation with a never-ending supply of possibilities.

After discovering this site and falling in love with a lot of the stories here, I decided to sign-up and follow/favorite some of them, and post a few of my own :D I've also got an AO3 account (Chalybeousite) and started posting my stories there. Warning, if you go to AO3 to read them, keep in mind I take full advantage of the Explicit Rating allowed over there.

I love video games, and I bet you can guess a few of them if you look at the stories/authors I've liked. I love romances, too. I've written (not posted) way too many Assassins Creed romances... Sigh. Someday I may put up my Jak & Daxter, and maybe I'll post one or two of my Ezio stories, too, now that I'm gaining confidence ;D

I love romances, but I don't want to publish romances. So I write stories here to get that crap out of my system; then I can focus on "serious" writing without the compulsion to add in the flushed cheeks and batting eyes and heaving bosoms ;)

Someone recently commented (not unkindly) that a writer on a site like this gets no real reward for their hard work (and went on to say how much they appreciate my hard work), but I begged to differ with them. I am rewarded. Not with a royalty check (money's only a way for publishing houses to keep score), but with every review where my reader has identified with a character, or can picture the scene perfectly, or was moved to feel a certain way... Ah, that's my reward! That's why I share what I write ;D So, criticism is welcomed, constructive more than destructive, but honest at the very least.

Feel free to PM me with comments or questions, etc. I love to "chat." And I'll respond fairly quickly (and probably too often).

July 12, 2014: Heard this guy last night, singing and playing acoustic guitar, and a line in one of his songs spoke to me. I just have to share it. "Block out the sounds of the devils in your ears." To me, it means don't listen to those worries and doubts that keep you from believing in yourself. I heard that line, and it resonated within me, you know. Hopefully, you feel it, too ;)

Jak and Daxter: The Darkness Within by x-jam-x reviews
*Sequel to 'A Twist of Fate.'* But two years can change a person. It gives a person time to think and linger on all of those 'what ifs,' and stew on the fact that, no matter how much you might want to, you can never go back. Slash.

Jak and Daxter: A Twist of Fate by x-jam-x reviews
If Jak had died defending him, Daxter would never forgive himself. He knelt by the pit of dark ooze that had swallowed his friend and silently begged for a miracle. Anything to see his friend alive and okay. Pre-slash. Updates Thurs.

A Bunch of Hot Air by McGinnis INC reviews
"I don't love you either," he replied. "Good," she relaxed, "just so we've gotten that out of the way." Because sometimes falling into another realm isn't half as fun as you'd think it would be. EzioxOc

A Spark of Color reviews
His existence had been a world of white and black, right and wrong, him and everyone else. Until he met her. Not only was she a riot of color in his drab life, but she showed him there were shades of gray between his black and white. And perhaps, if he dared, he might find out that not only could he dream, he could live. Fenris/Male Hawke, Fenris/Female OC

Tacitus reviews
I told myself I would never be brave enough to post one of my (far too many) Ezio stories, but since the Ezio Trilogy has been released for the PS4… Okay, so, you remember in the beginning of Brotherhood, after the fall of Monteriggioni, when Ezio passes out on the road to Roma, only to wake up in some strange woman's home? This is her story (or, if you will, my story for her).

Besieged Heart reviews
He once came charging to her rescue, like a gallant knight, saving her from certain death. And now, after all the heartaches and lies, she prays he can save her again. Just a bit of dribbling, angst-filled sappiness that's been rattling around in my brainpan since playing DA: Inquisition. Feeling the need to write a Cullen-knight-in-shining-armor fic. Some smut later on.

Soul of a Dragon reviews
"Happily ever after": three lies for the price of one. They had fought Forsworn and Draugr and Vampires. Still, it was hard for Gerhild and Vorstag to find anything bright and hopeful in their future. But after all they'd been through, they were certain of one thing: they'd face Fate together. Final book in my Skyrim saga. Rated M for smut, language, gore.

Ruined Dreams reviews
Though it broke her heart, she knew he could never be the man of her dreams. But there was more to life than dreams. A one-shot between F/Lavellan and Solas. Quick comment: not sure when this would happen in game, but to my mind it has to happen before he offers to remove the vallaslin. Rated M for smut

Will of Ebony reviews
Sequel to Heart of Frost: It's been a year since Gerhild has seen Vorstag, a year full of adventure and pain and triumph. She's kept her heart hard and her will harder, knowing she must be strong to do those things only she can do. Then the unthinkable happens—her heart breaks threatening to shatter her Will of Ebony. Will she be able to recover? Rated M for sex, violence, language

Heart of Frost reviews
Gerhild is a young Nord trying to handle a destiny that overwhelms her. To do so, she keeps her emotions wrapped within ice… until Vorstag comes along. His warmth threatens to melt her Heart of Frost. Part One of a Romance/Adventure tale between my Dragonborn character, Gerhild, and that lovable lisping 'freelance adventurer for hire,' Vorstag.
