I am Carbon Polygon, but please, feel free to call me Carbon if you'd like. As you can see, I write fan-fictions, and I take a lot of pride in the ones I post. I in fact write whenever I have a chance, albeit most of the work you will see here is a limited and handpicked selection of stories I didn't view as particularly abhorrent. Fan-fiction writing is not the main reason I write --that's for my personal original works--but let's keep in mind that I really love to writing them when I get the chance! Just keep in mind, I will not be updating too often, since most of my works aren't fan-fiction.
I'm not a romance writer--I don't like the genre due to the roundabout predictability inherited in romances. I tend to like writing about characters' backstories, or the friendship held between characters, dwelling deep into the quirks in them. To be honest, I'm a bit of a shaky timid person, so the whole romance ordeal gives me sort of a pique. However, I do support a handful of ships, which are all heterosexual. I have no qualms with homosexuality, I just happen to prefer heterosexual ships to slash or femmeslash. Homosexual pairings just aren't my cup of tea.
My personal interests and hobbies include writing, reading, video games, trigonometry, ecology, swimming, parasites, skiing, science documentaries, squids, good debates, baking, computer programming (I'll admit I'm not too good at it though), cats, mycology, astronomy and bats.
I'm currently a medical student, with a biophysics Bachelors. I'm a good student, and a large motive of mine is to keep it that way.
Let's roll out my personal favorites in every category!
Books: Contact (Carl Sagan), The Greatest Show on Earth (Richard Dawkins), Sick Puppy (Carl Hiaasen), Your Inner Fish (Neil Shubin), Flatland (Edwin Abbott), Fahrenheit 451 (Ray Bradbury), Uncle Tom's Cabin, and anything written by Shakespeare--but The Merry Wives of Windsor is one of my favorites. Also, if this counts as literature, I really love the awesome webcomic Homestuck.
TV shows: Cosmos, Monsters Inside Me, The Big Bang Theory, Monty Python, Death Note, Yu-Gi-Oh! (Season 0 and GX are my favorites), Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Dragon Ball Z, Get Smart, and Downton Abbey.
Video games: Earthbound (all 3), Portal (both), Half-Life (all of them), Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker/Skyward Sword, Pikmin (both), Team Fortress 2, Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, Pokémon (Black, Sapphire and Colosseum), Professor Layton and the Last Specter, Super Mario Sunshine, Ōkami, Ōkamiden, Metroid Prime Trilogy, and Kirby's Epic Yarn. Hoo! That's it!
