Author has written 29 stories for Batman, and Awake.
Author's Note by the eponymous Mr. D
I am an Englishman currently employed by the British Army. I have always enjoyed writing stories and, although the work showcased on this site will predominantly be Batman orientated, I have several dozen stories based on other popular works in all forms of media.
One of my lifelong ambitions is to become a published author and celebrated for my characters and works of fiction. By first publishing my work here, I am already taking first steps to achieving that goal.
Even though I do not explicitly mention it in my works, I appreciate reviews of any kind as it is constructive criticism, not wild praise that improves an author's writing ability. I am only 24 after all and have much to learn. I am particularly sensitive about grammatical accuracy and would greatly appreciate any reader's input in correcting minor mistakes for my own piece of mind.
Due to the nature of my job, I cannot disclose many more details about my personal life due to security. I will say however, that my favourite books are Catcher in the Rye by Salinger and Lord of the Flies by Golding, a man whose glittering literary and teaching career I wish to emulate in later life.
Since I began writing as an eight-year-old, I have amassed a catalogue of well over 10,000 stories of varying length and the majority dealing exclusively with characters and settings of my own creation. They are all stored on my laptop harddrive, with a back-up of all the files located in a safe place.
My final point pertains to support of you readers who take the time to read and review my work: I am forever grateful for your patronage. I do not thank you, my fellow story enthusiasts and writers very often even though as one myself I ought to. So I will take this opportunity to acknowledge your readership and offer thanks from the bottom of my heart. Without you kind people reading my stories, I would never know if what I penned was awful or good, insightful or blunt in its tone, grammar, delivery or presentation. This is my passion and it has remained my passion because of your support. So, once again, thank you very much for humouring me.
NEW EDITION: 09/03/2013
I have spent the last six months considering what I want to do with this account. I have decided to return to writing on a limited basis. I will finish Forge, Respite and End Game because they deserve conclusions. I will add one chapter to both Details and Streets because I want to. I will add one more chapter to Descent because it needs something to finish it. I do not know when these promises will be fulfilled or whether I will be able to honestly say I really concentrated on delivering the best possible product on each, but it will help put my mind at ease.
I am a writer. That is what I am and what I want to be recognised and acknowledged for. So I will write.
NEW EDITION: 15/03/2013
For some reason, I have had an urge to construct a chronological timeline for my stories in order to help me better stitch the various arcs and characters together.
Using this as a reference I intend to construct my own universe that obviously parallels DC continuity and events, but is also uniquely my canon. I will also utilize my current available stories to bridge gaps in the timeline that currently exist.
Here are the stories in chronological order listed by Robin:
1 - Funeral Dirge
2 - Up High
3 - Meeting in Darkness
4 - Details
5 - Fathers (Chapter 1)
6 - Dreamer
8 - Report
9 - Conditions
10 - Rain
11 - Escape
12 - Comfort
13 - Drunk
14 - Robin
1 - Streets
2 - Respite/ Endgame (both take place during the same time period although no causal link is mentioned)
3 - Exceptional Circumstances
4 - Soldier
5 - Descent
6 - End Credits
1 - Tim
2 - Slip
3 - Fear
1 - Forge
2 - Progeny
3 - Fathers (Chapter 2)
I will try to weave all these threads together in some way over the coming months. Maybe it will work and maybe it won't, but it's worth a try. Enjoy.
4 - Family
