Edit: Oh my god, wow. Returning here after 47204578204 million years of hiatus and rereading all this stuff I last edited when I was 14 or something was quite a trip. I'm considering a serious overhaul, but this entertained me so much that part of me doesn't want to.

The HAWK is here! -maniacal laughter- >:D
I am the commanding overlord of an army of slaves. FEAR MY WRATH! (I wish.)
I like a whole lot of subjects, and you can expect me to write a fanfiction about my favorites sometime in the future, if not as soon as possible. If you want to ask me any question, feel free to ask away. Actually, if you find a "Dreamnorn" anywhere, there's a really good chance that it's me. Yeah. xD
I joined Fanfiction.net on my birthday, the fifth of September. :) I hope to post interesting stories and poems when I can, and get to know other authors on this site.
I do NOT appreciate flames! If you have nothing good to say about my writing, than please talk to me via Private Messages. I do not mind, however, constructive criticism, which is quite different.
A little-known fact for readers to keep in mind, and for those of you who have been pestering for so long: English is my second language. I was raised speaking German. Granted, at around the age of six or seven I shifted to English (so by now my English is way, way, way better than my German), but that doesn't stop me from making odd grammar mistakes due to my upbringing. If I make any blatant errors in terms of grammar or vocabulary in my stories, feel free to correct me.
I don't know how to stress this enough. I go to the Orange County High School of the Arts.

A Writer's Survey and FAQ
What is your name?
I'd prefer not to tell you that information, though I can give you my real-life pseudonym: Alex C. Edenger. If you're curious, though, my real name also has the initials "A.C.E." No joke.
What would you be called if you had a different name?
Rich Berlew. :D -whack-
If you could be any creature in the world of your imagination, what would you be, and why?
Probably the cat-dragon I use most frequently as my online "furrsona." Why? Because it's awesome, can fly, can see at night, and it has retractable claws. Booyah!
If you could be any other FanFiction member for just one day, who would you be?
TheFinalCountdown. Man, I wish I could harness your imagery skills!
Besides write, what do you do in your free-time?
Draw my favorite characters, play with my cat, kick my brother, pull pranks on Mistress (and consequently get maimed), play/watch/read my favorite games/shows/books. But my absolute favorite way to spend my free-time when I'm not writing is procrastinating--and boy does it feel GOOD.
Would you like a taco?
Well, too bad! HAHAHA!
-writes anonymous death threat-
Haha... seriously though... why do you visit this site? Why do you post here? Do you even like it here?
Of course I like it, you sick little monkey! I visit this site to read other people's stories, share ideas, converse with other writers, and post up stories of my own. The feedback and practice is good for me so that one day I can fly free and create a fandom all of my own... but that'll never happen.
Have you ever published an original story or comic of any variety? Is that a subsection on this website?
I'm SO close! But not yet. Oh yes. Not yet.
Any favorite genres to write in? Favorite fandoms?
I could spend HOURS listing my favorite fandoms to write in (believe me, you haven't seen anything yet). However, I'm best at certain types of genres: Fantasy, Comedy, Angst, and Hurt/Comfort (which I have yet to post up). People say I'm also good at Romance, but ehh, it could be better.
Any genres you're not so-good-at?
Anything having to do with crime. And everything serious I try becomes a narm.
Care to divulge a bit of back-story?
Well... I've been homeschooled practically my whole life. I was always that one kid on the playground who never hung out with anyone, just melingering on their own to the side, minding their own business. I left regular school at about 2nd grade, partially because I wanted to be homeschooled, partially due to an "incident" I had with two 5th-graders. I'd rather not talk about that. But homeschooling was wonderful! And I met lots of awesome people in the workshops I would go to. Unfortunately, my parents could not homeschool me for High School, so they sent me back... to OCHSA! I never realized a public school could be so much fun! I'm a sophomore, and hot diggity, do I ever love it there.
Name one major thing that brings each of the following emotions to you: love, hate, fear, and sadness.
Name one minor or silly thing that brings each of the previous emotions to you.
I'm probably going to screw myself over, aren't I?
You do know that no one gives a damn for the last three questions you answered, right?
FAQ: What gender are you?
This cracks me up. Even after running Spyro: Truth or Dare where this was supposed to be a joke, I figured it was painfully obvious. Try to piece this together based off true facts about me: Cats are my favorite animal. I own a collection of model monster trucks and dinosaurs. I'm a fan of love stories, but horror and thriller are my favorite movie genres. Confused yet?
FAQ: You haven't updated in such a long time! When will you update again?
Take a look at the mini-rant near the top of my profile. That should explain it.
FAQ: Do you support yaoi/yuri/slash/femslash pairings?
Although I'm typically more for het and I don't actively seek these stories out, yes, there are some yaoi/yuri pairings I like if the story they're in is well-written.
FAQ: Wait--what? You're serious on that? Then which is better: yaoi or yuri?
I'm completely serious. And both are fine, it doesn't matter to me. LGBTQ people and pairings can be awesome! But don't get me wrong--I love het stories to death, and generally PREFER het over yaoi/yuri, so why can't I just prefer romance stories in general? Psssh.
FAQ: Hey, you deleted "Spyro: Survivor"! Why would you DO such a thing?!
I could have a whole rant on this alone, but I'll divide it to you simply:
1. It was really, really HARD to write some of the character interactions. Somehow, it felt like a whole different can of tomatoes from the traditional style I used for Truth or Dare, and that caught me off-guard and made it difficult.
I wanted to continue it, but eventually I couldn't. My deepest apologies to anyone disappointed.
FAQ: Your fanfictions suck. Go die in a hole.
That's not a question, love. You should have learned that in the first grade.
Any last words?
If anyone actually bothered to read this, I'll eat my beloved camo cap.
Favorite Het Pairings (Couldn't Resist!):
Helga/Arnold (Hey Arnold!): Holy cow, I just love these two. I really don't have to explain why I love it so much. It's just... wow. I'm almost tempted to call this my het!OTP.
Link/Tetra (Zelda): It's just so... perfect. o: I love this!
Coraline/Wybie (Coraline): Okay, admit it, it's unbelievably adorable. Wybie's such a sweet little weirdo-dork, and Coraline's awesome. If Helga/Arnold is not my het!OTP, then this pairing is.
Elan/Haley (Order of the Stick): Awww...
Varjak/Holly (Varjak Paw): I think it could work, if she weren't so darn prickly. xD
Camicazi/Hiccup (How to Train Your Dragon): Once again, it's perfect!
Starfire/Robin (Teen Titans): Self explanatory.
Beast Boy/Raven (Teen Titans): Opposites attract, you know.
Danny/Sam (Danny Phantom): For the third time, it's absolutely genius!
Spyro/Cynder (Spyro the Dragon): Awww, Dragon luff.
Romeo/Tabitha (Nine Lives of Romeo Crumb): I don't know... for some reason, I think it would be cute. o.O
Austria/Hungary (Hetalia): They're awfully sweet to each other, and it makes me feel funny thinking of them with anyone else.
Romano/Belarus (Hetalia): CRACK PAIRING ALERT ALERT DANGER GO BACK
Favorite Non-Het Pairings (Because People Asked):
Jeff/Tony (Earthbound): What's not to like? Jeff is a nerdy scientist serious character, while Tony is flamboyantly hilarious and loves baking cookies. Booyah!
Russia/China (Hetalia): Oh HELL yes. I love these two. They're awesome together--and it's canon in history.
America/England (Hetalia): Haha, what a dynamic. XD
Germany/North Italy (Hetalia): Well, duh.
Spain/Romano (Hetalia): F--ing tomato bastards are awesome.
Korea/Prussia (Hetalia): Curses, the crack has officially melted my brain.
Annie/Liza (Annie on My Mind): Mffff, it must have been tough, being gay/lesbian/bi before it was more accepted. These two are infinitely sweet and completely deserve each other.
Cynder/Ember (Spyro the Dragon): ...Don't kill me... my brothers... they got me into it... aaaaugh!
Malon/Ruto (Zelda): WTH IDK BBQ OKAY SO I READ THESE TWO FOR LAUGHS BIG WHOOP.
Here is a list of all my stories, in order from oldest to most recent. If there are any plans for updating, canceling, or deleting a certain story, I'll let you know!
OOTS: Tales of the Tavern
I don't know where my creativity stopped. I'm trying to write a Durkon-centered story, but it isn't going very well, and my other stories are keeping me very busy. Therefore, my OOTS fanfiction is on hiatus for an indefinite period of time. I do really hope I can get back to it one of these days, though.
The Chronicles of DreamClan: The Kin of Bloodstar
I've been slacking again haven't I? At least BurningPAW will have his first day as an apprentice coming up! Hopefully by Monday the 29th I'll be able to post up the next chappie. It's a little long, but I think that it's a good start for his apprenticeship. And now you'll finally get a little tour of the FrostClan territory. WOO! (tackled)
Spyro: Truth or Dare
I've seen lots of these Truth or Dare things for a few other of my favorite subjects (Zelda, Warriors, etc.) and only one for Spyro that has been started and lived very shortly a looooong time ago. It looked like so much fun that I decided I would make one for Spyro, who has a considerable lack of this kind of story. I'm having an absolute blast writing it; and I hope that, if you're interested, you'll have a blast reading it. This story will last as long as I can keep up with doing the dares and truths or until it gets too repetitive.
EDIT: Yes, I officially marked it discontinued for both reasons mentioned in the above paragraph.
This was just a sudden idea that came to me when I was busy contemplating what would happen soon in my other Warriors story, The Chronicles of DreamClan: The Kin of Bloodstar. The character that stars in this story is a minor in my main Warriors fanfic, but I found that I kind of like him. This story will probably not continue due to that I still remain uncertain about how people will take it.
The Legend of Cynder: Reign of Darkness
I was surprised not to see one of these things running, so I took it upon myself to start The Legend of Spyro in Cynder's point of view. If this is good, then I might make a sequel for the events that took place during The Eternal Night. So far it seems to be heading in a positive direction, based on how people are taking it in the reviews.
Okay, I'll be perfectly honest: Hey Arnold! is amazing. I just love that show. And Helga/Arnold is probably the coolest, sweetest, most dynamic balancing act of a pairing that I have ever seen. And it's canon too! So, I had to make something about it. Considering these characters are nine years old, though, I basically decided to make it more like "friendshipping" than romance.
Gateway to Balance
This is kind of retarded. XD But hey, I love mythology, I love HA!, and I love to write. So... I win, I guess. This story will mix in HA!, mythology, "Slightly Damned," and lots of bad jokes and puns. Don't waste your time by reading this. I hate it. And especially don't review it.
...PSYCHE! I'm really proud of this so far. :D
EDIT: And yet again I put a story on hiatus. Just shoot me already.
I Would Cry, and He Would Smile
...Yeaaaaah I don't know what I was on that day.
CORALINE WAS AMAZING. I swear, in the last two days, I've watched it how many times? Five? Damn, when I obsess, I obsess hard! I must admit, Wybie was incredibly adorable, so naturally I felt the need to write a little story from his perspective. As hard as it was doing a first-person through his eyes (the adorable little weirdo), I think I did a good job.
Fan Fatales: If At First You Don't Succeed
I have not done a Spyro comedy in FOREVER. Truth or Dare was a lot of fun while it lasted, but I only have so much creativity, and there were too many people reviewing it with dares/truths for the Spyro cast. I would have never been able to pick and choose, nevermind coming up with entertaining consequences! Survivor was a flop, so I'm most likely deleting it.
BUT YES I STARTED ANEW. AREN'T YOU PROUD OF ME?
Come to think of it, it's sort of like Truth or Dare, only in a story style with torture mainly aimed at Moneybags. But hey - comedy is comedy! This may eventually be discontinued if people don't take it well or real life becomes overpowering. Because guys... I'm in high school. That means a lot of homework. Expect erratic updates during the school-year and regular ones during the summer.
Two Halves of a Whole
Spyro fandom, don't kill me. I love Hetalia too! Russia (Ivan Braginski) is my favorite character by far, and I've been DYING to write a story featuring him for some time now. This one is based off of a dream I had the other night when Ivan had an odd penchant for... errr... well... I'll let you find out. Wink wink.
Sun Grown Tomatoes
Spamano? Awesome. Belarussia? Incest. Belamano? Priceless. I wanted to try my hand at my first CRACK pairing fanfiction, and somehow these two seemed so perfect that I simply couldn't resist.
Just a little cracky birthday present centered around my third favorite Hetalia pairing, USUK. FLYING MINT BUNNY FOREVER, DUDES.

For me, crazy is a loose term. Crazy is when you stare at a pencil and laugh when someone asks you just what you find so interesting about the eraser. Crazy is when you have an hour long sob-fest, then start singing and dancing when your favorite song plays. Crazy is when you do or say a totally random thing, like "do you ever wonder where the eraser bits go?" or start having a thumbwar with yourself (I find that I am a very tough opponent). Crazy is when you try to have a staring contest with your reflection in a mirror. So if you're crazy, copy this onto your profile and add something to the list.
