Happy International Cat Day!

(Which, let’s be honest, is basically every day on the internet.)

hi guys!

if you follow @theivorytowercrumbles and their crew, you already know what kind of post this is. the reason i’ve been scarce lately in terms of blog content is because i’ve been writing for love and legends, doing the second half of reiner wolfson’s first season (episodes 7-12)!

i’m so grateful to @sailorscooby for giving me a shot, and satisfied beyond words to have my first paid writing job. check it out on ios, android, or amazon, even if it’s not normally your type of game - i got paid to write a beefy older dude, do it for my sake 😉


sometimes when i work on a big writing project and it’s really important for me to know the layout of a room, i like to do a floor plan of it, just to have a visual reference on hand. it’s also a great way to avoid doing the writing itself, but shh

anyway, i wondered if some people might be interested in these, so i thought i’d put them up just in case. here’s the one of joanna’s room at the cat that i did for tgoed, plus the layout of her karnaca clinic during dh2!


Three Days of the Citadel: 3 chapters, 6352 words, illustrated

As the Reaper War rages and the Crucible enters its next stage of development, Hackett summons Shepard to the Citadel for what she thinks will be a routine business call. But he has some disturbing news about how the superweapon will actually work, and the Alliance has noticed her starting to crack as the conflict takes its toll. Between dealing with the revelation, fighting to stay at work, and getting dragged into a mystery involving a Cerberus spy, Shepard learns things are about to get much harder - and more personal.

This is a rework/expansion fic for ME3′s volus ambassador mission, trying to give it some more flesh than the brief assignment we got ingame. I also lay some of the groundwork for my headcanon ME3 ending, and there’s a hint of some future Shepard/Zaeed at the end for the shippers. Enjoy!
