Author has written 2 stories for Mass Effect.

Profile v1.2b:

Hi there! It's twentyitalians. Sadly, there is only me and not actually twenty Italians operating this account. You can yell at me later for false advertising. This profile is to make up for the fact that I have no profile. I also might be pretty bad as a writer.

So what are my inspirations for writing? I particularly enjoy a good fantasy / sci-fi novel that takes readers into the world of the book. Lately I have been following self-published or serial books. On the self-published realm I highly recommend Harmon Cooper's The Feedback Loop series (digital books on Amazon - and they got all new cover art!); For the serial books I am a HUGE fan of Drew Hayes and all of his books (Super Powereds; Blades & Barriers; NPCs). Of the conventional books I enjoy most of the series by David & Leigh Eddings, Scott Sigler, and Max Barry (seriously, read Jennifer Government and all his other work).

I like to think that I offer some good monologues and dialogue in my stories but feel free to tell me otherwise. When writing I am going to stick to the story and not add fanciful or farcical plot devices to make the story work. I also am totally vain and can't stand typos. I reread my work multiple times before posting but sometimes I see what I want and not what is, just let me know!

So why do I stick with Mass Effect as a creative source? Well, the OT games were awesome and, no, I haven't finished Andromeda yet (see Personal Junk below), but there is still SO MUCH left unsaid about the galaxy and normal people's interactions outside of the games and the Normandy crew. Very fertile ground for creative writing.

Random junk: I love commas, I really, really, do. I find it gives the right pauses to dialogue. I am a huge American Civil War nerd and am an active reenactor (Union side only, I'm no traitor to my country). So, if there ever was a good CW source to write fanfiction from, you'd find me there.

Personal junk: I'm just a guy in my 30s, married, and I got the whole two kids and two dogs routine down pat. But I like writing and I like the ideas in my head. So I'm putting them down onto paper. I also run my own gaming YouTube channel (no cross promotion, don't worry) and work a wonky schedule which leaves very little time for anything else. These stories are written mostly late at night before I go to sleep around midnight or 1 am.

Anyways, enjoy!

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.

The Old Ways: Extra by Vo0d0o-D0L reviews
Waking up next to a corpse isn't the best way to start your day as I find out. Stuck in a place I shouldn't be, it's all I can do to try and survive until the skies darken. But when you're pit against a centuries old Matriarch with little more than the generosity of strangers even that becomes a challenge.

No Single Raindrop by LogicalPremise reviews
Liara T'Soni attempts to gather her mother's wisdom and thoughts on siari, Athame, asari culture, asari philosophy, and some biographical material to recreate and publicize Benezia's tenets of belief. An exploration of rarely discussed parts of asari culture. Rated M for some sexualized references and Aethyta's mouth. Irregular updates.

Another Realm VI: Chevalier by Katkiller-V reviews
One war has ended, another has begun, and the complications seem to never bloody end. If I'm not dealing with relationship problems, I'm dealing with leadership problems... and just when both of those look like they're settled, I get to be thrown head-first into the bloody waters of Terminus politics. Dammit, but some days I really just want to leave all of this to someone else.

Awake by The Blocked Writer reviews
I woke up in a glass tank, stuck in a body that definitely wasn't mine, and that was just the first few minutes. Naturally it all pretty much went downhill from there.

Another Realm V: Einherjar by Katkiller-V reviews
The assassin escaped us on Redcliffe, but the war goes on. Armed with new strategies, new allies, and new plans, the hunt will continue. But before it can truly resume, there are a few loose ends to tie up. In particular, my own past has been a mystery for far too long, and what few clues I have point to the throne-world of Lady Warlord Yan T'Ravt...

AR: Those Who Fight - Vengeance Edition by Katkiller-V reviews
Everyone has their own story, their own goals, their own dreams. Here we will cover some of the disparate personalities who inhabit the galaxy, focusing primarily on those who have received less screen time in the Another Realm series proper. I will be accepting requests for character focus, within reason.

It's time to hunt an assassin who claims to have been affected by the same Matriarch who blasted my mind. Oh, and open war has broken out in the Terminus between the Blood Pack and the Warlords allied against their new Krogan Empire. Which is going to make finding my revenge rather annoyingly complicated, but such is life. Krom will die, or I will. Nothing else matters.

In order to do so, I'm now on Omega to back up Aethyta's spy slash mercenaries. But Omega isn't Illium, and it's going to be rough few months. Hell, between the mercs, the gangs, and Aria herself.. we'll be lucky just to survive.

Another Realm II: Terminus by Katkiller-V reviews
It's been six months since our part in the war against the Blue Suns ended on Illium, but just because we think we're out doesn't mean that our enemies feel the same. Between Batarian politics, strange assassins, and reluctant rescue missions.. it would seem that my life is going to become extremely complicated yet again. Which figures, I was just starting to get comfortable.
