Author has written 29 stories for Daredevil, Smallville, Supernatural, Harry Potter, Remington Steele, and Covert Affairs.
My name is ComicalEpiphanies, but you might know me as ComicNerd. I've been contemplating changing my name for months now, and I've finally done it. ComicNerd was a good name, but my writing has changed so much since I first made this account in January of 09, it no longer made much sense. It was time to move on. This is the name I use on fictionpress. It seems to fit me better. I'm sorry if this has caused any confusion, but you'll get used to it. I can promise you this, however, I am still a nerd and still proud of it.
I have returned from my exchange, now officially a college student! I don't know how often I'll be able to read, let alone write, but I'm back!
Now that that's taken care of, here's a bit about me:
I love to write. My style and ability has been greatly affected by fanfiction.net, as you will tell if you ever have the misfortune to read my earlier stories. I would remove them, but the way I see it, they make my newer stories look better. I have little or no control over what I write, as I'm sure some of you authors can understand. I own and operate a production company with my identical twin (ModernScribe here). We mostly do documentaries and commissioned work. I have just finished my last year of high school. I will be spending a year abroad before going off to college.
Things I love:
Movies (anything but horror or musicals)
Star Trek (big Trekkie, especially of Next Generation and Enterprise), MacGyver, and Quantum Leap
Jigsaw puzzles (I'm always working on one)
Psychology (my one true love when it comes to academia)
Critiquing and rating films
Grammar (you never notice when it's good, but you miss it when it's bad)
Things I hate:
Bad films (actually, I like to pick on them)
Flames (got something you need to say? Send me a PM so that I can read it, fix it--or ignore it--and delete it. If you can't do that, at least have the decency to sign in)
Chronic mistakes (I get that we all make them, but having constant run-ons or capitalization mistakes is not only careless, but also insulting)
Favorites without reviews (if you like the story enough to favorite, you can spare the time to write why)
About my favorites:
I periodically go back and review my favorites list. If your story was once there but isn't now, do not take offense. I make a conscious effort not to have more than a hundred stories on the list at any given time. The way I see it is that if I can read the title and remember the plot at once while remembering why I chose it in the first place, it stays until another story knocks me off my feet. My tastes and fancies are always changing; it does not reflect on you or your writing. On the plus side, you can always be sure the stories I've selected are the best of the best. I am easy to please, but I never favorite a story without making sure it has reasonable grammar, a fine plot (or point, as the case may be), and enough power to punch me in the gut. Congratulations to those authors who get through my gate.
Now that they're out of the way, here's what I promise:
If I ever insult you, intentionally or not, I will acknowledge it and try to help. I will not leave you in the cold. I will accept helpful criticism as gracefully as I can and fix whatever I possibly can. I will never favorite or alert a story without telling you why. I will always tell you the truth if it means improvement. I will never insult your writing, no matter how I feel, I will just stop reading (as I hope you will do if my writing insults you). I will never consciously take another's plot or ideas without asking permission.
My series from the Covert Affairs fandom, Rookie Auggie, has grown from "Close and Continuing." It is no longer a trilogy. Because I've written them all out of order, here's the current cheat-sheet:
One (circa late 2002): "From the Frying Pan" -- currently uncompleted, but mostly plotted
Two (circa late 2005): "Shaken Not Stirred" -- complete
Three (circa early 2006): "When in Rome" -- complete; directly in line after "SNS"
Four (circa late 2008): "Close and Continuing" -- complete
(Please note: the years are based on my own timeline. When I wrote the first store, "CNC", the year when Auggie was blinded (2006) was not yet cannon, therefore, I made my own timeline. Each story was cannon-based when it was written, even if later episodes disagreed. In fact, that goes for all my stories.)
