My name is *beep* or my author name The Fan of Many Things.
I hail from the United Kingdom and dwell in a village in the South West of England.
I have many interests so I'll talk about them below.
Origin of Name: My username was chosen because I do have many interests. I couldn't really think of a name so I choose a name that just meant I liked more than one thing, it's very original in my opinion.
Fanfiction: I've been writing fanfics for as long as I've been a teen I'm now 19. I used to write fanfics that were very bad when I started that were full of rubbish and so many plot holes they make Britain's roads look tidy. My main reason I got into writing is to get popular and pass the time as well as share my imagination with everyone else. Another is my inability to draw, as much as I like seeing pictures of my favourite things, I've come to accept writing as my form of expression. My ultimate wish is to see my stories converted into a comic or fan-manga (if it's based on an anime). I always appreciate constructive criticism and even accept harsh criticism because I always stand up after it, it feels like your being told off by your parents or teacher. I always prefer a project than something short because with a project you can immerse yourself and really enjoy it unlike a short story where it's only a flash in the pan experience. The things I hate however about fanfiction is those that write it because of their unprofessional story telling and extreme obsessions with characters that ruin the story and turns it into a shrine dedicated to fandom pairings and inflicts normal sane fans to the stereotyping because their fellow weaboo fans tarnish any fanbase's reputation. I'm not a weaboo or will go to the lengths they do, you have a promise. I don't write same sex parings due to my scientific and social beliefs and do not do slash because of how obscured and over the top they can be. Finally I'm willing to Beta-read those who need it.
History: History: I've always been interested in History, it's a really fascinating subject. Ever since I was a kid History looked and sounded cool and diving into a text book was fun. Indulging in cutaway sections of castles and Roman villas filled me with excitement. I can remember going through phases during my youth when I was interested in Romans then Medieval times then proceed to my preferred part of history the 20th Century. At primary school with the addition of my special needs secondary school they only taught me the soft humorous pieces of the topics they taught. When I look back at it I didn't really know what they were trying to tell me, where they telling us to not repeat history? Or Something else? But when reaching the age of 15, 16 when leaving school is soon then you understand what they're telling you. Please don't repeat history and learn from it's mistakes. Which as I grew older I came to realise History is filled with failures and mistakes and that we as the future should try to avoid repeating it. Nowadays my main focus in general history has disappeared and replaced with military history.
Military history: Military equipment: As I grew and reached that philosophical age I came to the conclusion that the world advances in major strides after each significant war conclude, this helped seed my interest in anything military. After that I took heavy interest in weaponry and equipment, which some frowned upon mainly those in the education system for a child to be interested in a gun and the method of which they operated. They believed I was going to use them to kill and mane people because some crazy people go around shooting people and I was going to turn into one of them. Today I've not become a gun nut as they thought, but a person who's interested in the engineering side of a firearm or the mechanics of crossbow. My military history knowledge is prioritised in the conflicts of the 20th Century since I'm not bright enough to understand advanced technological weaponry you'll find in a Call of Duty or Battlefield game, but I'm still willing to learn about muskets and older weaponry. Also this includes military vehicles such as tanks, tanks are my main focus when it comes to vehicles since I like the brute strength they possess and the fire power, but that doesn't mean I don't like aircraft. It's naval vessels I don't like since most of their measurements kinda go over my head. It's not wrong to enjoy military stuff just don't let is consume you.
Video Games: I like half of the world's population has played a video game. When I was a kid I was too late for the NES or the SNES since I was born in October 1992 so I played the N64 and then the PS1, heck I've even owned a few Gameboy Advanced and then a DS. Now I own an Xbox360, a PS3 and a Wii, you may ask how? I'll tell you, we enjoy entertainment at home, we rarely go outside to theme parks or go on holiday so that saves money for consoles. I've played many games that go on to great things and I've played some really bad games. I play them to pass the time, I play a majority of different platforms, but I stay well away from turn based games like Pokemon or Final Fantasy because I hate the lack of control they offer, I hate having to stand there and take a hit, I like to dodge and have control. Sports games I don't like playing since it goes too quick for me, basically I have a slow reaction sometimes and when playing casually if I was playing online I'm more awake and ready. Currently the main games I like are Gears of War and Kirby, yes Kirby! Mario is overrated and Touhou which I don't really play because my computer is rubbish and I lack the patience to put up with dying all the time and restarting all over again. Mega Man is another great game, not X or Battle Network they're just highly overrated!
Transformers: Born 8 years after Transformers G1 aired on television in 1984. I got into it thanks to DRSMOOV gradually integrating me into the fanbase with his parodies, a soft way into the world of transforming robots with a larger than life fanbase. In to 2008 I got a G1 boxset since that's the very original Transformers cartoon, except the comics. I still have apart form having the box in bad shape, but all the disks in working order so I can watch and re-watch my favourite series over and over again. I only watch G1 up to the movie where Prime dies because past the movie everything goes downhill for me, all the characters you were used to are gone, died or just forgotten. I avoid all other forms of Transformers cartoons, I think the Japanese Transformers series only seem to want to flex the muscles of the latest 90's animation technology and making over-the-top character designs instead of retaining original designs, DON'T GET ME STARTED ON BEAST WARS! TFA butchers characters to hell, reduces or combines into one which in my opinion is the stupidest thing to do. I hate what they did to Prowl his Johnny Bravo voices ruins his stupid serious weaboo ninja/samurai character. Prime is ruined by humans, the bane of most Transformers cartoons in my opinion. I hate the Bayformers, simple as that. I enjoy the recent Transformer games Fall of Cybertron. I own no toys, I'm too heavy handed with them, besides they break so easily and many fans are to obsessed with collecting them.
My favourite characters are: The Constructicons (all of them) and Soudwave.
