Author has written 11 stories for Evangelion, Sym-Bionic Titan, Ben 10, Danny Phantom, and Hey Arnold.
I live in Los Angeles with plans to study abroad in the near future (hopefully). Below are what describes my personality and currently, describes my existence.
Latino (Salvadoran American) My parents came from El Salvador in the 80's when the civil war fucked up the country.
As of 2021: 32 years old
I'm a freethinker and not bound by any type of dogma; post graduate student and aspiring to be an socio-cultural anthropologist. At the moment, things are going well and I have more free time to write and conceptualize ideas. I'm writing a lot more nowadays and reading more books too. Listening to music and watching interesting films. One of the men that's inspiring me to write now is Gustavo Santaolalla, a composer of beautiful music and a film composer. Nowadays, I wanna experiment with capturing moods of certain music pieces and putting them into writing. A challenge I live for, although there are days I don't wanna write; I wanna rest. But no rest for the driven I suppose.
During the writing process, I find myself relating to Alejandro González Iñárritu who also conceives an idea as a song or a piece of music before even writing the draft. I know its wrong to compare myself to a world-famous director, but I admire him and know now that music can be the foundation to write the story without just being background. Hope I meet him one day :)

EVA story (The Enlightening Music): I don't expect anything when I post a chapter (except bad reviews and the occasional good review from those who actually like the story I'm putting up). The connection the Children have was inspired by what I watched in the Death Trilogy (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, BABEL) and Biutiful. A connection by what the parents' choices indirectly and directly involved with NERV and the choices that were not in their control (more detailed in Chapter. 12). This story is mainly about the emotional turmoil the Children have to deal with one another and with the few adults, they interact within a time where the world went to hell because of them. Redemption is for everyone here, whether the actions are noticeable or private... it's about hope and redemption for past actions. More details about fate and choice will be shown in the final chapters, but won't describe them here...just yet.
Might change the title down the road when I edit the beginning chapters.
Title of the crossover saga: LES MUSICIENS DU MONDE (formerlly "Les Musiciens")
2005 (Eight Chapters-completed), 2006 (Seven Chapters-completed), and 2007 (Five Chapters-completed). The three years will be separate stories that fall under ARC ONE of the saga.
2008, 2009, and 2010: Completed
ARC III-2011-2016 and beyond (Won't put up the length of the arc this time around. Even I'm not sure)
Also, there will also be themes derived from different religions, but they will just be added for color and NOT as the main objective for the saga. Transcendence is the key without being overly preachy, spirituality without dogma, non-belief without being overly rational, and celebrating difference in humanity. As well as the occasional action and drama. Hints of romantic love will be shown, but not til' later in the story when the OC's and the Children sort out their personal demons and their mistrust of Danny, Ben, and their comrades.
Main languages are spoken in the crossover: English, Japanese, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Tagalog, Farsi, Arabic, Russian, Mandarin, and Cantonese. Plus many more ;)
In addition: I'm also considering a story for Sym-bionic Titan, but definitely not on the scale of my current one, or the upcoming crossover saga. It will probably be at the most 3-4 chapters in length and it will revolve around themes of spirituality, death, anger, love, and above all redemption. As I'm writing this story, I'm considering a short trilogy of stories involving Sym-Bionic Titan, Ben 10 Ultimate Alien, and Danny Phantom. Not connected in any way except for the themes I wanna talk about and how we process emotions so we don't lose control and lash out. This is mostly a side project and the stories of Ben 10 and Danny Phantom will have subtle links to the crossover saga without giving it away completely.
1. SYM-BIONIC TITAN- Pain is Universal (completed)
2. BEN 10 ULTIMATE ALIEN- Three Days (completed)
3. DANNY PHANTOM- Four Walls (completed)
And one more thing, for those who think my character Dante Yamato from the EVA fic is a self-insert you're wrong. My ID for this site is what I got from Dante's La commedia divina. Ergo, Dante and the poet Virgil fused into DanteVirgil. That's that and I should've made this clear years ago, but I thought people got that, but apparently, I was wrong.
October 25, 2011-There might be another story for Ben 10 in the future, revolving around my Four Walls OC Wilfredo's cousin in Three Days. About how he came to be associated with the trio. Longer than Three Days, but no mentioning of Silvia whatsoever. In a chronological sense, starts in January and ends at the beginning of June. A crossover of sorts with Danny Phantom. And yes, he has abilities similar to Wilfredo's, but that's all I'm revealing here. Only six chapters planned. A side story to the current LES MUSICIENS saga.
Title of short crossover: Six Degree of Separation (completed as of July 30, 2012)
Author Note: January 25, 2014: I updated on the status of Arc II and Arc III. Due to the new influx of ideas for the story than what I anticipated, the arcs will be longer. Thus, hopefully, not lump everything together and hope for the best.
April 2, 2018: The reason for what is going on now, with the massive lengths of the chapters is to give answers to the pilots finally letting go of the EVAs while still dealing with Ben, and the mystics in question; to expand on their nature, as well as their history with a new group, magi. Where their powers come from, their purpose in their world, how to live with them and how to move on and be well-rounded adults. Extremely complicated and I hope you readers are not put off by how the story is developing. (Updated)
