Author has written 2 stories for Dresden Files, Fate/stay night, and RWBY.
Average guy with a keyboard. Twenty four years old, Boy Scout, rocker and closet nerd.
I love a challenge, no matter what form it takes. Whether that's wrestling, powerlifting, learning a new language, video-gaming, or writing. Nothing beats the feeling of pushing your limits and learning to conquer them.
Pride and vanity are my shortcomings. I generally don't like admitting mistakes, and despite myself, I sometimes care too much about what other people think of me.
Writing is an outlet, one of many hobbies that help me take excess emotion and turn it into something positive. Writing, listening to music, riding motorcycles and strapping on gloves, they're all different sides of the same coin.
It's true what they about writing characters - you fall in love with them, because they're pieces of you, reflections of your dreams, your goals, your fears, your weaknesses. They're sides of you that you wish you could express, and they're incredibly personal. I post on this website because it's a way for me to get constructive criticism, and reading reviews is a guilty pleasure of mine, but I don't think I'll publish in the future. I'm writing mostly for me and that's how I prefer it.
Heroes / Inspiration
Thomas E. Lawrence. "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible."
The Giver (The Giver). "Just like music, there's something you can't see with your eyes... something inside you."
Jason (The Giver). "From far behind me, from the place I had left... I thought I heard music, too. Perhaps it was only an echo, but it was enough. It would lead us all home."
Emiya Shirou (Fate/Stay Night) "I'll become a hero, no matter the cost! My dream might be impossible, but that doesn't make it wrong!"
Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones). "That's what I do; I drink, and I know things."
Marcus Aurellius. "Put an end once for all to this discussion of what a good man should be, and be one."
Yang Xiao Long (RWBY). "I'm a thrill-seeker. I want to travel around the world and get wrapped up in as many crazy adventures as I can. And if I help people along the way, then that's even better. It's a win-win, y'know?"
Ebenezer McCoy (Dresden Files). "Son. Everyone dies alone. That's what it is. It's a door. It's one person wide. When you go through it, you do it alone. But it doesn't mean you've got to be alone before you go through the door. And believe me, you aren't alone on the other side."
Michael Carpenter (Dresden Files). "Judge your actions against the worth of your own soul, not against the stains on theirs."
Steve Rogers (Avengers). "Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, you job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- 'No, you move.'"
Benjamin Franklin. "Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man."

Remnant is currently on indefinite hiatus. (10/2/2017)
There are two reasons for this: firstly, in order to complete the story to the quality I desire, it would exceed 800k words, at a minimum. Using all of my free time to write for nearly six months straight was just enough to produce 80k, and I can't justify spending the next five years of my free time to write a story that isn't my intellectual property.
Secondly, I have joined the Air Force. I will be leaving for basic training in two months' time. I want to make the most of the time I have, and am using every second I have to prepare. Remnant is too big of a project to tackle in that time, even if I were to work on it like a full-time job, so I'm ignoring it entirely. The story will remain unfinished, for now. I may update the story with a final chapter or a plot summary, or it may die on a cliffhanger, as so many stories on this site do. (For those of you interested in adopting this story for continuation, I would be happy to pass it on - send me a private message and we can talk shop.)
But I want to let all of you wonderful readers know that I have greatly appreciated your support. It's been a marvelous journey from start to finish, and I've learned a lot from you all. You've inspired me to write more and to better myself as an author, turning a kid's wanton interest into a passion that will last a lifetime.
Also, if you're interested in my other works, Fate/Hard Knocks is a FSN/Dresden Files crossover that I do intend to complete before shipping out. You can find a link to it in my profile.
Thank you for your time - and keep on writing!

Future (Potential) Story Ideas
"Variant Chef Works" - RWBY / Fate Stay Night - Shirou was saved, time and time again. This time, though, it was by someone he didn't expect - and why was she raiding his fridge? [Shirou summons Ruby Rose, hilarity ensues. Romance/Comedy.] (7/5/2016)
"Cheating the Devil" - RWBY / V for Vendetta - The Faunus Rights Revolution ended in disaster. Thousands were killed, and the survivors were confined to Menagerie. Eighty years later, Inquisitor Weiss Schnee's ears are graced with whispers of an uprising, led by a man with eyes as red as his sword. The Kingdom of Vale is under siege... and the revolution's second coming is at hand. But what is a revolution without dancing? [Adam Taurus / Blake Belladonna / Weiss Schnee love triangle. Subtle crossover with V for Vendetta. Drama / Romance / Political Thriller.] (7/7/2016)
"Plus // Unlimited" - Fate Stay Night / Boku no Hero Academia! - All Might, the legendary Hero who Never Was, lost his smile to the cursed Fuyuki fire. Hundreds died that night, their lives lost to the blaze... but, as Fate would have it, there was one survivor: a young boy with sunset eyes. Living where others did not, Shirou devotes his life to saving others, just like he was saved. His quirk, Structural Analysis, might be useless... but that doesn't mean a thing! He will become a Hero of Justice!
"Forged" - Fate Stay Night / Worm - Taylor thought she knew what to expect. The locker, though, that was unexpected... as was the fire, the fire she was unable to escape. But what truly stunned her was the knowledge that Shadow Stalked, a hero, had left her burn. An innocent girl cried out for salvation, and was lost in the blaze; tempered by the heat, someone else - something else - emerged. Now, possessing power she barely understands - a power that threatens to consume her - she must answer an unexpected question: what does it mean to be a hero? [RealityMarble!Taylor, Idealistic Degeneration, Whispers of an Unnamed Hero, All Power Has a Price.]

"Never forget why you're here."
"Work hard, prove yourself, but don't brown-nose."
"Life is full of suffering, but also opportunity. Take advantage of it while you can."
"The body might crumple, but the soul will carry on."
"Though you might fail in pursuing your dreams, that doesn't make your dreams any less worth pursuing."
"Follow what you believe in. Even if you fail, living your life in pursuit of that dream will ensure you have no regrets."
"Throughout your life, the only constant is you. True strength isn't spitting in the face of the past - it's in accepting your mistakes and learning from them, becoming a better person than you were the day before."
"If you strive to be a writer, you must first live a life worth writing about."
"Suffer the pain of discipline, or the pain of regret."
"Be your own hero."
