Author has written 5 stories for Digimon, and Naruto.
Name: Jason Tombs
Height: 6' 8"(Believe me, being so tall is not as awesome as people seem to think)
Occupations: Director, Actor and sometimes everything in between for Hell's Gate Films; part-timer at the local gun store
I live in Pennsylvania
I graduated from Penn. State University
I'm an Atheist, though I prefer the term "Pearlist"(PEARL is an acronym standing for Physical Evidence And Reasoned Logic, however, I find it easier to just say I'm an Atheist and leave it at that since most people don't know what a Pearlist is). FYI, "PEARL" is a term that, as far as I know, was created by(or at least brought into popularity)a man who goes by the alias "Thunderf00t".
I've got a forum here on the site, called Devilkeys' Playground. There's a thread for just about everything over there, from writing advice and fanfiction recommendations, to video game reviews and humorous rants. It's open to the public and new members are always welcome, so come on over if you're interested!
Things I Hate/Dislike:
People who don't take responsibility for themselves
Monkeys, don't ask why
People that have no pride in themselves
People who bitch and moan for the sake of bitching and moaning
Political Parties - ALL of them
Overly religious people that keep telling me I'm going to go to hell, ENOUGH, I know! I already have an apartment picked out. (Right by the River of the Damned, very nice.)
People who will talk to you for hours and interrupt you when you try and talk, then get mad at you when you don't say anything
People who tell the same unfunny joke multiple times...when no one laughed the first time around
"Waterproof" cameras that don't work as advertised
People who keep trying to step into the frame when you're trying to film a scene
Badly written stories that the authors keep going, usually due to the fact that they get nothing but praise
Stories that are rated M, but have no blood, gore, language, or sex
Yaoi, especially the truly weird and disturbing Yaoi(i.e.: NarutoxSasuke...Not exceptionally creepy, per se, but add a little something known as "mpreg" to that and you get one of the many definitions of the word "Abomination")
The complete overload of Yaoi on this website for certain series and characters(i.e.: Digimon series, Daisuke/DavisxTaichi/Tai, etc...)
People who hate Rock/Metal, and all it's variations(this one is reserved for the people who say Metal is nothing but a bunch of incoherent screaming and random instrumental noise)
People who never make any effort to improve themselves
People who can't properly spell the names of anime/manga characters...even when they are ten chapters into the story
And many, many, many, many, MANY more things that I don't feel like typing down.
Things I like:
Music(I'll listen to *almost* anything)
Mixed Martial Arts
Good movie soundtracks
And many more things(A pretty vague list of things, but there's no real reason to go in-depth with it)
Digimon(specifically Season 3)
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Green Green TV(fuckin' hilarious!)
Chobits(also quite funny)
Darker Than Black
Attack on Titan
And a few more.
Note: Naruto and Bleach *used* to be on this list, but both franchises have been circling the drain for a while now, and have been booted.

Now then, a couple things about my stories:
Black Flames Dance In The Wind: Rise of Naruto
I did it with the first chapter, and that alone took over a month and resulted in a doubled wordcount. So if I did it for every chapter that needed it, it would be well over a year before I ever got around to updating. So I'll have to ask you guys to just bear with it until I can fix what needs to be fixed.
Tamer of the Hazard
This story is still active, despite the time between updates. The problem is that between Black Flames and random plot ideas, there isn't a lot of time left to devote to TotH. Plus, I'm just not getting very many ideas for it; and the ones I am getting are for scenes that won't take place until MUCH later in the story. I've got nothing for the here and now.
The plan was to start the next chapter with a fight between BlackGatomon and an upgraded Soulmon. But as I started writing it, it became clear that this kind of fight scene was a bit more..."abstract" than what I'm used to writing. It's not a major fight, so I'm trying to keep things short, yet satisfying. But that's proving to be a bitch and a half, so I might end up scrapping it altogether.
Update 12/20/2013: Finally got passed that fight scene. Not exactly rolling yet, but progress has been made!
Update 12/20/2014: A full year later, and I've got all of two paragraphs to show for it...Fucking hell.
Tamer of the Night
The rewrite, whenever I get around to it, will focus on the origins of "Agent 17". Meaning, we'll get to see when Takato first joined The Agency(despite the organization name, agent aliases and some assassination methods, the story will have NO relation to the Hitman video game series), and how he got through his training. It will also explain how he went from a pipsqueak, to a 6'4" "giant", and why everyone just seems to accept it without question(Hint: it wasn't natural at all).
The rewrite will basically focus on things I had planned to explain via flashbacks in the original story. Somewhere along the line, I found that the flashbacks would make for a better story than the main story itself, and hopefully you guys will agree.
As of 12/08/2012, Tamer of the Night has been adopted by "moonrose221". No idea what he/she will do with it, but it's out of my hands now, and I can't say I'm sad to watch it go.
Now, some things I feel I should address here, so I don't have to keep saying them over and over whenever I update my stories.
I DO NOT DO CHALLENGES. EVER.
If I can't even keep a decent update schedule with the two active stories I have, what makes you think I want to add more onto the workload? I'm flattered when people apparently think I'm a good enough author to be trusted with bringing their own ideas to life, but that's just not what I do.
And it's not just about having another story eat up my writing time. By definition, a challenge-fic is written for someone else. That means there are constraints involved; things that you HAVE to do in order to stay within the guidelines of the challenge. I don't fancy being limited like that. I find that when I have limits imposed on what I can do, I lose a lot of the drive to write, and the story suffers for it.
And then there's the fact that you can't really take your time with it, as you're basically under contract. It's just a whole bunch of crap I'd rather not deal with.
And notice I said "suggestions", not "demands". If you come at me with orders to do things your way, I'm just going to laugh at you. I don't care how you think the story "should" be. If you don't like the way it's going, write your own. But as long as it's my story, what I say goes. Don't like it? Take 10, add 4, divide by 7, subtract 2, and you'll be left with the number of fucks I give.
Before the whole social networking integration deal, I had anonymous reviews disabled. Why? Because that added sense of complete anonymity seemed to do nothing but embolden the assholes around here, since they could say whatever they wanted and there was nothing you, as the author of the story, could do or say about it. Yeah, we're all technically anonymous anyway, even those us who go by our real names in addition to pen names. But when someone leaves a review as a member of the site, you can at least reply to it and defend yourself and your work from needlessly vitriolic attacks.
So, as you can imagine, I was pretty pissed when they took away the option of disabling anonymous reviews. But they also gave you the power to moderate them, so it worked out just fine. But really, the douchenozzles who leave their little guest flames don't bother me. That shit gets rejected immediately.
No, my problem is the "Guests" who ask questions. Questions I can't answer, because I can't reply. Because there's no account for me to send a reply to. Just yesterday(12/19/2013), some jerkoff left a "review" for Black Flames complaining about some bullshit I can't really remember(only skimmed it before deleting). But I do remember him/her saying "I want to know", in one form or another, at least twice. Well, obviously he/she didn't want to know, otherwise they would've taken thirty seconds out of their oh, so busy day to make a damn account so I could reply and answer their lame-ass questions.
So, aside from flames, I've got no problem accepting guest reviews. BUT, if your guest review contains questions, and nothing else, don't be surprised if you never see it on the review page. Not being able to answer questions drives me nuts, so guest reviews asking about characters, plot points or whatever else will also be deleted. Sorry, but that's how it is, and that's how it's gonna stay. Nowadays, there's absolutely no excuse not to have an account here, since they did away with that waiting period they used to have.
