Author has written 11 stories for Star Wars, Baldur's Gate, StarCraft, Warcraft, and Mass Effect.

I'm a recent Computer Science graduate who, aside from getting his face ground into the dirt by reality on a regular basis, loves video games and loves to write.

And I especially love RPG's. American ones, that is. Nothing against Square, but Bioware is light-years ahead of them :).

Most of my stories are one-shots. I find something I want to write about, often directly involving a video game, and I write about it. I'm not the best writer, but, well, the phrase "brief flashes of sheer brilliance" sorta apply here.

Well, brief moments of competence, at any rate. I'm also deeply into self-deprecation, if you haven't noticed.

So, if you're here because you liked one of my stories, a few things for you:

1: Yes, my SN is from Starcraft. I'm bad at names. And I came up with this one nearly a decade ago. But I've stuck with it, so sue me :).

2: Recommendations!

For romantic angst, I recommend "Two Tarisian Ales", probably my most popular story, certainly my most popular one based on KotOR.

For general awesomeness, "No Way Out" is, apparently, quite good. Took me forever to get the ending right.

WoW players, hit up "A Forsaken's Dream". It takes the darkest part of the Horde and gives them some redeeming qualities. Rather a shame that Blizzard, who loves shades of grey in WoW, made the Royal Apothecary Society so mustache-twirlingly evil.

My personal favorite? "An Exile's Lethargy". Not just because I finally wrote about Jolee Bindo, but rather that I still read it on occasion and try to take the advice I'm giving myself there seriously.

3: No, I'm not going to write a sequel to a story unless I find something to write about. I hate meaningless sequels, and will never write one, ever.

pushes "Three Tarisian Ales" under the rug

Heh, I might, depending on how inspiration strikes me, and if I strike back at it. But let me be clear here: There will be no sequel to "No Way Out". It's just not possible, people! Stop asking for it!

4: If you came here after reading some of "In Her Wake", yes, I'm going to continue it. Eventually. I've always got part of a chapter written, mainly because I want to get onto some later scenes that I REALLY want to write, but it's hard writing a long story.

Some general book keeping: I've written Fan-fictions for the following properties:

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Simply amazing)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords (Would've been amazing with another, oh, 6 months of development time)

Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn (Possibly the finest RPG ever made, yes, I'm including FF7 in this assessment!)

Starcraft (What can I say about one of the finest games ever made?)

World of Warcraft (Don't ask how many 70's I have. Just don't)

Mass Effect (Thank you, Bioware, for more FF fodder!)

Yeah, I got a thing for Bioware and Blizzard.

Why are Humans Smarter than Quarians? reviews
It's a horrible, offensive, speciest and specious joke. But, as Commander Shepard will soon realize, the tiny bit of truth behind it can, in fact, be hilarious. One-shot, no romance, just a bad joke that's left the writer giggling like a schoolgirl...
