Author has written 17 stories for Dying Light, Resident Evil, and Destiny.

Aiming to misbehave responsibly since '82. Might be caught writing, lurking about their favourite places on the web, or enthusiastically playing their favourite games.

Always happy to hear from my readers if they've liked what I made! It feeds the writer.

Fav (completed) Projects:

Latchkey Hero, a Dying Light canon divergent story-- centered around Kyle Crane and Zofia Sirota. It's meant to shed more light on Harran and the survivors trapped within it. Expect less video game, but a lot more human. Both the good and the bad, the gentle and the evil.

The Lone Wolf of Harran, a Dying Light Werewolf!AU, where Kyle is, without doubt, the sexiest werewolf of Harran.

Abandoned (but concluded) Projects:

Hiareth, a Destiny story focused around a Guardian and her Ghost. Expect a Guardian who isn't quite like the others, but a Ghost who kind of wishes she was.

The Parting Glass by StopTalkingAtMe reviews
Let's get something straight before we begin: almost everything you have ever heard about the missing Count of Anvil is a lie. Most likely you believe I spent the final decade of the Third Era shacked up with a mistress wherever it is that faithless Colovian men go to hide from their heartbroken Colovian wives, but the truth is rarely that simple. This story is the truth. Sort of.

Hiraeth reviews
He is a Ghost who likes to dream. She's a Guardian who wishes she didn't. When he found his Guardian, all he could think of was how they'd be great together. How they'd be heroes. Make a difference. Those sorts of things. But what he hadn't expected was just how badly he'd mess up. Because she remembers. Her name. Her death. And everything she lost.

The fall of Harran robbed man of its humanity, and Zofia Sirota of her innocence. Finding redemption, with the city rotting away around her, seems to be a pipe dream at best, until a man falls from the skies and turns futility to hope. Either that, or he's about to make things a whole lot worse. [Dying Light 2 compliant]

Breathe reviews
There's a bushel of flowers on the kitchen table, a note wedged into the pretty mess of fiery colours. Something-something Valentine, it reads, and now she's gone from slightly puzzled to absolutely gobsmacked. Redfield doesn't do flowers, she'd always thought. Well. She isn't exactly wrong.

Before Harran reviews
Latchkey Hero extras. Read for Season 3! Kyle Crane loves his job, and he's damn good at it. Obviously, since he's still around to take contracts, and when the GRE approaches him for one very particular deployment, he finds it very hard to say no. But how do you prepare for Zombies? It's not like there's a ton of handy training material available, so Kyle decides to improvise.

Home is where the heart is. Where your wifi auto connects, and your fridge has got a full row of eggs stocked, and none of that low-fat-bs-milk. Mostly though, home's where Chris Redfield wanders without gear on his shoulders, and I get to label him as I see fit.

Chris Redfield contemplates home without those he's lost. Kyle Crane pranks his way through the B.S.A.A. And Piers Nivans dabbles in Christmas bakery. All that and more, in my contributions to the continued Pint Sized prompts challenges run on /r/fanfiction, meant to produce drabbles between 100 to 400 words long.
