I’ve been around for awhile and writing, mostly under the pseudonym of “Alyssa S.”, starting at Fictionmania around 2000. I wrote a few stories there – Nano and Slaves of Acteon.
Then I got in to game creation, and wrote Coldbrook Manor (written in something or other) and Sophie’s Eyes (written in Adrift).
A few years ago I returned to fiction writing and started posting Virt as a sort of serial, a chapter a month, on my blog. I finally decided to pack some of these stories up and post them for free here. And here we are. Do let me know what you think.

I had to create an account just to review Empathin. I'm familiar with Melody's work and it's always top notch, but this is among the best.
The story plays like the world's most unnerving and erotic episode of Black Mirror. Honestly, Melody, this could have real commercial prospects with a little tweaking to the most explicit moments.
Unlike a lot of online fiction, Empathin is professionally written with eloquence and care. There's a humanity to each character, and their thought processes are perfectly narrated. The realism of each characters' actions make the scenario that much scarier. I was on the verge of a panic attack throughout the entire story but couldn't stop. That's a testament to Melody's creativity and writing abilities.
