Author has written 2 stories for Dresden Files, Fate/stay night, and RWBY.
I'm an average guy with a keyboard. Twenty three-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.
Many people live by their own creed. I'm not particularly religious, but I'm a very spiritual person, and attempt to live my life by two principles. The first is, "Follow your ideals with everything you've got, acknowledging that you may never achieve them. What's important is whether or not you've given your all in the attempt. Then, even if you fail, you will have no regrets." The second is, "Base your actions not on the approval of other people, but on whether or not the person you want to be would be proud of your actions."
Life is short, therefore it is precious. Because it's precious, it's worth defending. To my mind, there's no higher calling than serving one's community. That's one of the main reasons why I'm trying to get into law enforcement. It's been a rocky road, with plenty of challenges along the way. Still kicking, though!
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! I'll save everyone!"
Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones). "That's what I do; I drink, and I know things."
Don Quixote (Man of La Mancha). "The truth may be stretched thin, but it never breaks, and it always surfaces, as oil floats on water."
Grandmaster Duane Pitcher. "Be strong. Believe in yourself. Show honor, and show respect."
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."
Firefighters, EMS, Police, and Members of the United States Military.

Consumed by her thirst for revenge, Yang defects from Beacon, leaves her family behind, pursues the man who killed her partner... and finds more than she bargained for. [Yang abandons the light and carries her fallen teammate's torch. She joins Cinder's group in exchange for the opportunity to confront and kill Adam.

"Rosebud" - RWBY / Flashpoint - Ruby's Semblance warps space. Space and time are connected. She travels back in time to prevent her mother's death, and succeeds. But no miracle comes without a price. By rewriting history, Ruby rewrote her future. The world has changed... into a dark, unfamiliar place. Now, Ruby - without her Semblance, and without her team - has to fix the world she destroyed... and she doesn't even know where to start. [Time Travel AU. Rebel Dystopia. Hints of Lancaster and Bumblebee.] (8/03/2016)
