Author has written 2 stories for Escaflowne, and Elfen Lied.

Hi everyone,

For those who want to know a little more about me, here it is.

My name is Robert Downing, though at times I have thought to use pen names like Beowulf or Fenris Fenrir. But you may know me as Robert.

I was born in Louisa, Virginia on April 26, 1970. Yes, I’m 45 and an up-and-coming writer like everyone else here with a love for good anime, science fiction, fantasy, and adventure tales.

Hobbies: watching anime, movies, & cartoons; writing science fiction/fantasy adventures, star-gazing, Niten Ichi Ryu sword training, Karate, reading, playing quest style video games, studying mythology and exotic theories about antiquity.

Favorite animes include: The Vision of Escaflowne and Escaflowne the Movie, Elfen Lied, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, 2nd Gig, and Solid State Society; both Ghost in the Shell movies, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, Whispers of the Heart, Howl’s Moving Castle, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, Lupin the III: The Castle of Cagliostro, The Cat Returns, Kaena, Samurai Horror Tales, Ninja Scroll, Kai Doh Maru, Blood The Last Vampire, Final Fantasy 7, Steamboy, Karas, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, Dragons: Fire and Ice, Hellboy animated, Tokko, Noein, Appleseed: Ex Machina, Baldur Force EXE, Spawn, Paprika, Blue Seed, Samurai 7, Ragnarok the animation, Blue Gender, Lady Death, Bleach, Lady Death, Dante's Inferno, etc...

Mangas also include: Final Fantasy Unlimited, Crest and Banner of the Stars, Witchhunter Robin, Hack//Sign, and Arjuna

A few favorite live action movies include: 300, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Trek and Star Wars (all of them), Alien Verses Predator, Predators 1&2, Spawn, Hellboy, 13th Warrior, Dune, both the Conan movies, Kull the Conquerer, Red Sonya, Pirates of the Carribean, Cutthroat Island, Silent Hill, Alone in the Dark, the Indiana Jones trilogy, Pitch Black and the Chronicles of Riddick, Spaceballs, the new Mummy 1&2, the Scorpion King, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the Mask, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (all of them), Dead Space Downfall, etc…etc…. The list goes on and on.

Now for the disclaimer: I don’t own Escaflowne or Elfen Lied nor anything associate with it. I will not make money off of any story written about Escaflowne or Elfen Lied so don’t bother suing. Besides, I have no money to get, ha ha. Yo ho, yo ho, the writer’s life for me!

I have also posted the story "Old Ghosts" on along with 10 poems of a dark nature, similar in content to my Elfen Lied Requiem. I invite everyone who looks at my work to jump over to and take a look. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Moreover, I invite anyone who reads the stories I post to review it and give any feedback they want. It is always appreciated. When reviewing, be honest, but kind. Constructive criticism is always welcome, especially when it points the writer in the right direction. However, I cannot abide someone who does nothing but viciously and maliciously tear someone's work to pieces because they have taken it upon themselves to destroy bad literature whenever they encounter it...especially when they provide no alternatives to help the writer improve his or her skill. That is no way for someone to act toward a work. If anyone has their work ripped apart by someone like that, please don't hesitate to contact me. I have endured that kind of abuse before and may be able to help.
