Greetings fellow writers- I'm James, but feel free to call me Jammer-everyone else does. The main reason I joined this site was so I could find an outlet for all my bright ideas and creativity that I often think up when I'm reading or just playing my games.
Speaking of games, I normally play on quite a few genres, but the Silent Hill and Resident Evil series are firm favourites in my collection; but I also like the Final Fantasy series just as well, along with numerous others I can never remember throughout my life. And I have also gained a love of Call of Duty since playing COD 4 on the PS3 a couple years back: I currently play COD: Modern Warfare 3/Uncharted 3 online, so maybe I'll meet you on the online battlefields, and we can shoot one another in the face (in a truely metaphorical sense, of course).
I love music more than anything in the whole wide world, aside from maybe Chocolate and other sweet stuff, but anyways some of my fav bands include: Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Pearl Jam, Muse, Coheed and Cambria, Mastodon, Metallica, Megadeth, The Subways, Paramore, Biffy Clyro, and various other British Indie bands and American rock acts.
I watch quite a bit of TV as well, and so all the major American shows are my preferred choice- including CSI (all three variants, even if David Caruso's acting in CSI:Miami is laughable (dude, taking your shades on and off in various ways is not constructive acting), Law and Order, House, and many many others. Prison Break, Lost and NCIS are firm TV/DVD favourites at the moment, but it changes around a lot depending on the mood.
Any questions, or if you want me to be a beta reader? Feel free to drop me a message.
1: Tales from the Necropolis:- A side-story of sorts during the same timescale as 'The Fall of Raccoon', it follows the fortunes and stories of various civilians caught up in the outbreak, several of which have featured in TFOR, and also numerous original characters. Who will survive, and who will become zombie chow? Read and find out! Updates have slowed down, but I do still intend to complete this, even if it kills me.
2: Resident Evil: Dead Memories:- sequel to The Fall of Raccoon, set 3 years after the Raccoon City Outbreak, this new story charts Dean Travers' attempts to move on with his life following that horrendous incident- but soon finds himself being dragged back into a past he assumed was dead and buried. Will hopefully be shorter and more concise than that previous story, and will also focus on drama, character development and emotion, developing from how I portrayed these in TFOR.
3: Dead Space:- Dead Space is another of my favourite game series, and after recently completing the one-shots 'History Repeating Itself', 'Following the Steps', and 'Saving a Life', with one final one-shot, 'The Final Sacrifice' to come in the near future. I currently have no plans to do novelisations of either Dead Space game, sorry.
1: The Fall of Raccoon:- set during the Raccoon City Outbreak, this story follows R.P.D officer Dean Travers on his trials to survive the horrors unleashed by the T-Virus. Completed as of October 2010.
2: One shots:- As above, I have already completed 3 RE one-shots for this site, 2 featuring Albert Wesker and one featuring William Birkin, as well as another 3 for Dead Space.
ORIGINAL CHARACTER PROFILE
Dean Robert Travers
DOB: 30/06/1972 (26 as of TFOR, 28/9 as of RE:DM)
Height: 5' 10''
Appears In: The Fall of Raccoon, Tales from the Necropolis (cameos), Resident Evil: Dead Memories (upcoming)
Born and raised in the small Virginian town of Riverview, Dean lived a paceful, simple existence on his parents farm, so far tended by three generations of the Travers family. Quiet and serious by nature, Dean had few solid childhood friends, until he started at High School and met Ben Campbell, another local boy, his confident and carefree manner providing the perfect foil to Dean's more understated personality. At the age of 21, he then moved away, heading to New York to try and find his own path in the world, rather than simply continuing the tradition of inheriting the farm from his parents when they passed on.
By 1996, he moved to Raccoon City, on request of Ben Campbell to join the Raccoon Police Department, a post he would never have imagined himself in, but by 1998 all of that would come crashing down in the wake of the horrific T-Virus outbreak orchestrated by Umbrella Inc. As one of the few survivors of the R.P.D, Dean struggled to escape the crumbling city, battling both scores of the undead and the other monsters bought into being by the virus. Fighting alongside other civilians and survivors from Umbrella's UBCS mercenary regiment, Dean learned about the true face of Umbrella, and soon joined up with Ben once more as they headed towards possible escape, and their final obstacles, through a secret Umbrella storage facility. But at the final hurdle, Dean suffered great tragedy, as Ben met his death at the hands of an experimental Tyrant bio-weapon, unleashed in the wake of their search for an escape.
Returning home to Riverview, Dean now commits himself to rebuilding the life that was shattered in the wake of the Raccoon City Outbreak. Little does he know that the past is not so willing to let him go...
