    Summary

    "I’ve worked on the moon and I’ve put by on Mars.
    I’ve walked other planets, around distant stars
    My boot has marked lands where no human has dwelt
    I’ve trained among alien asteroid belts
    From my youth starships have been my home.
    And they still are now that I am grown.
    For proudly I tread where my parents trod
    An Alliance marine, before man, before God."
    A collection of short Mass Effect poems taken from poetic epic The Song of the Shepard’. They explore the story of the game trilogy through the mind of Rosamund Shepard (a paragade, spacer/war-hero). The collection will include lyrical reflections by Shepard, a good deal of narrative verse celebrating dramatic moments in the story, and an occasional ode to a character or event. Each poem has a brief explanatory heading. Spoilers for Mass Effect and the The Song of the Shepard. {‘The Song’ is available elsewhere, but I wanted to share some scenes as stand-alone poems.}

    Summary

    "Lying on my stomach in the passage, I held my breath. Knowing the man who spoke, I had no doubts as to what he was suggesting."

    When an endangered slave visits an imprisoned spy, she discovers that she has more options in life than she had thought.

    Life is not easy for Serva, the bastard daughter of the King of Daxis. Alternately treated as a slave and as a princess, she is distrusted on all sides . . . especially by her old rival from the nursery, her cousin the Prince.

    When the Prince begins to hint that she is a threat to his ambitions, Serva must make a decision that will determine the course of her life. And that decision will determine the fate of a spy who is due to be hanged. . . .

     

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    "A lone woman in a man's world, attempting to survive by men's rules, without in any way discarding her womanly nature. It was a paradox she had lived with for years."

    The guards who serve under her are mocking her. In other words, it's an ordinary workday.

    After seven years of enduring trouble from the guards of the Eternal Dungeon, the royal prison's only female Seeker is determined to bring matters under her control. But how can Birdesmond Manx Chapman do so when nearly every man in the dungeon thinks she shouldn't work there?

    It will take wisdom and wit and not a little slyness for her to see her way through this test of her courage. And she mustn't forget that the man who most resents her presence is the dangerous High Seeker. . . .

    Summary

    You’re nobody, Maya’s dad used to say, but not, like, in an abusive sort of way. It was more…aspirational. Be nobody. Be invisible. Strike unseen from the shadows. It was only after months of hanging out with Damian Wayne that Maya realized just how abusive that actually was.

    After the end of Robin: Son of Batman, three damaged kids and their giant bat-thing start to heal with the magic of friendship and really good food.
