    Summary

    A collection of short stories inspired by Bioware's "Star Wars: The Old Republic" MMOPRG. At this point, all of them involve in some capacity either my characters or the PCs my characters interact with and explore my headcanon.

    Ranges the gamut of fluff to romance to darker themes and a variety of characters and pairings.

    (Last updated: 12/13, Ch 7, "To the Victor", Male Sith Inquisitor/Andronikus Revel, PG-13'ish. Spoilers through the end of the Sith Inquisitor class story)

    Summary

    Steve Cortez still mourns the loss of his husband, Robert, but then meets Commander Shepard--a man who he is attracted to--and wrestles with reconciling his ghosts with the man right there in front of him.

    Another series of related short fics (some of them previously published in my drabble collection) about a single pairing--Steve Cortez and a male Shepard--paralleling ME3 game events and trying to bridge some of the gaps in their romantic relationship to better explain (in my mind, at least) how Cortez goes from his friendship arc of Act I to being ready for a romantic relationship in Act II. Organized in story chronological rather than as written order.

    (Updated 12/7: Ch 1, "Bromance", Vega, Cortez)

    Summary

    James Vega was not an ME3 love interest, and after the wonderful flirtatious banter given to us...that was a shame.

    A collection of connected 'situation fics' I've written and may continue to write in one particular imagined story arc of a Female Shepard/James Vega romance, both within the game and beyond. Each 'chapter' is it's own short story and organized chronologically (rather than 'order written') and may be re-ordered as new stories are written. Mostly R (for sexual content and language) but there is a few NC-17-flavored chapters included.

    Contains spoilers up through the end of ME3 and a deviation from the 'canon' ending.

    Summary

    A post to collect short fics written for me_challenge@LJ's 'Insanity Round' fills and my 2011 Ficmas fills.

    Each 'chapter' is a separate fic, and they range the gamut of characters and pairings.

    (Last updated: 31-May, Chapter 33-35, all ME3-era--Schmoopy FemShep/Kaidan, FemShep/Garrus, and angsty BroShep-Garrus friendship fic)

    Summary

    Picking up just after the team's return to the Normandy from the destruction of the Human Reaper at the Collector Base, Christian Shepard deals with the immediate aftermath of saving the crew, recovering from the assault, and the newly minted shift in his relationship with Miranda. (Implied past relationship with Ashley Williams.)

    Written shortly after finishing the ME2 playthrough that spawned the character, its intention is to fill in the gap between the Suicide Mission itself and the final holovid confrontation with The Illusive Man at the end of ME2 and give m!Shepard and Miranda a little bit more relationship than the quick shag in the engine room of the game before going into ME3. This is the same m!Shepard used as reference in my short fic, "My body is ready" and "I regret nothing", and this would take place between those two.

    Contains no ME3 spoilers. Slice of life.

    (Edited after posting for HTML fail that ate part of the later dialogue.)

    Summary

    There have been a lot of theories going around the internet since Mass Effect 3 dropped regarding the meaning of the ending.

    I got a wild hair up my butt to look at the endings again inspired by these theories and what Bioware has been cruelly teasing us with since the game dropped from a perspective of a literary analysis of the entire series as one contiguous narrative AND an RPG game.

    Needless to say, there are massive end game spoilers for the entire trilogy included here.

    ETA1 Ch 12: edited to have an additional theory posted and a clarification

    (15-Mar)
    ETA2 Ch 12: updated to note another observation about the possible endings
    ETA3 Ch 12:A couple of tweets added to the end that suggest additional support for my assertion
    ETA4 Ch 5: Added in a note relating to the 'Redemption' comic
    ETA5 Ch 13: Added info to the Epilogue undermining my assertion.)

    Summary

    While Nathaniel and Marian continue to minimize any overt displays of their relationship, seeing Marian dancing with a charming Ander mage at the Satirnalia feast is more than Nathaniel can stand by for.

    Summary

    It's taken six years for Carver to screw up the courage to try to express to Merrill how he feels about her, but, of course, this is Carver and Merrill, and miscommunication is bound to happen.

    Summary

    Caught in a snowfall towards evening in the foothills of the Frostbacks, the party takes shelter for the night. While Alistair and Elissa Cousland stand watch by a meager fire, they share stories of happy childhood memories when they were warm, well fed, and safe.

    A fluff piece with a touch of melancholy.

    Summary

    A light-hearted attempt at writing a scenario by which this pairing might work: she is physically perfect but can't take ownership for her achievements, while Joker, who isn't, owns the hell out of his. He admires her assets, and she admires his accomplishments despite his physical flaws. But of course, with Joker, it can't be that straightforward. He has to work up to it. Banter ensues.

    Summary

    A collection of short fics inspired by prompt fests at dragon_age & likeahawke@LJ, and my 2011 Ficmas prompts.

    Each 'chapter' is a separate fic, and they range all over the gamut of characters and pairings.

    (19-Dec: Updated with Chapters 108, "Two Sides of the Same Coin" (Bethany, m!Amell, Carver, PG, /mild angst/humor) and 109, "For the Hell of It" (f!Hawke/Isabela, PG, humor))

    Summary

    This started as a one-shot that has grown into a longer AU story arc re-imagining selected events after Act II through the end game from a circle!Bethany's POV, as if Fenris got entangled with her romantically and not Hawke. It attempts to deal in more depth with the conflict I see inherent in a Fenris/mage relationship (as opposed to the more generalized one forced on the game), especially one involving a mage in the Circle, and one possible path by which Fenris would come to terms with that dichotomy.

    Any perceived similarities to the Fenris/Hawke Romance of the game is deliberate.

    Summary

    Written for the masseffect@LJ 2011 Secret Santa exchange, for the prompt "Christmassy and/or fluffy Kaidan/FemShep stuff, preferably ME1 era".

    Summary

    Darrian Tabris has survived assaults on heirs to human nobles, conscription, the Joining, a civil war, the Deep Roads, the Blight, a Dark Ritual, and slaying an archdemon...and those were all easier for him than going through his second wedding day.

    A bit of fluff for the Ficmas 2011 prompt: "M!Tabris and Zevran have a nice (rapist-free) wedding in the Alienage after M!Tabris slays the Archdemon."

    Summary

    A one-sided argument, with an apple involved in the making up part.

    Really, it's a "plot? who needs plot?" excuse to write happy fun sexual tension.

    Summary

    Prompt:

      “I want to read Alistair's POV as he finds himself with the duty of sleeping with his wife. He is not a virgin, and he still is completely in love with the F!Warden (Cousland or Amell if possible), but even though she is alive, they can't ever be together again. He is heartbroken because she left right after slaying the archdemon and being named Warden Commander, and he feels guilty at the same time because he was the one to tell her they couldn't be together because she wasn't able to give him children.

      Here's the catch: Feeling as he feels, Alistair is either unable to perform or he is able to perform but completely hates himself during the act and afterwards too.

      Basically, he had only slept with a woman he loved. And he will never love Anora.

      So there is supposed to be a lot of angst in here, may be a little self-loathing. What I really want is to read Alistair's thoughts as he can't perform his duty, and when/if he manages, then he hates himself during and after.”

    Due to another prompt made around the same time, 'wife' became Anora. f!Warden is Elissa Cousland.
