Behold! My latest offerings!!


Well, well, not too much to say here. Solidly-written all the way, the scenes gel nicely and it all reads as smoothly as you like. The ...

Another great piece of work, filled with some intriguing elements. The dream sequence was suitably disturbing and intense, with just th...

My name is Mothbanquet, author and creator of Mass Effect fan fiction for nearly three years. I pride myself on writing good quality Mass Effect fiction, both original and canon, as well as offering advice and critique to other writers in the community. I have released two full-length stories so far, Mass Effect 2: Dark Rendition, a gritty and emotionally complex retelling of Shepard and Tali's romance, and Interceptor, a riveting espionage thriller set months before the first game. There are two more projects in the works, the details of which will continue to be posted in my journal entries.

I believe in a few simple things; quality writing, deep characters and well-constructed plot lines. I do not write fluff or fan-pleasers. Instead, I try to bring something new and fresh to the Mass Effect audience, something they will enjoy and always remember.

Thank you for visiting my page and remember to check in often - content is updated on a regular basis!

If you like my Mass Effect stories, please feel free to check out my original work under pen name J J Grimshaw.

Finally, these are some of my favourite DA peeps, so please check them out and give them lots of love and support:


Keelah se'lai!
  • Mood: Excited
  • Listening to: The sibilant reports of my Predator pistol
  • Reading: Codex
  • Watching: Tali's hips
  • Playing: Mass Effect Trilogy
  • Eating: Varren skewers
  • Drinking: Serrice Ice Brandy
So, a week off work starting tomorrow. I've been hitting the novel hard these past few months alongside my regular job and a heavy toll has been taken. What could be better to unwind and recharge the creative batteries than a full 100% ME playthrough with my favourite Shepard?

Time to relive all those fateful decisions, raw emotions and unforgettable moments once more!

Adieu for now, Happy Easter and Keelah Se'lai!

Haven't taken a close look at your profile before. Favorite film's Reservoir Dogs, eh? In the vault of Tarintino films, I prefer Django Unchained, but I love RD too.

Just updated my own profile, especially the "My Interests" section.

Just thought I'd pop by to say this: I might have to start dividing up my comments on your stories into several parts, since the site seems to think that they are spam. Probably due to the length. I hope it won't be a bother to you.

Hi Moth, I'm trying to plan my next Feature (will post in September) and I was wondering if you would be up for a blog interview kind of like this one Ideally I would like to do the Fall Feature on ME Interceptor, and if you're interested I'll go ahead and note you some questions. 

Best regards,

mothbanquet Jul 19, 2013  Professional Writer
That sounds good, my friend. Just send me over the questions and I'll get the answers back to you asap.

Thank you very much.  I want to have well thought out questions, so it may be up to a week from now before I send them to you.  I'll also note you the feature itself at some point for your approval.
