Author has written 2 stories for Final Fantasy VIII.

So I'm a 17-year-old heterosexual guy living in America.

I'm ethnically Irish-Dutch-Cherokee.

I plan to go to college and study political science, history, and economics.

I solemnly swear never to write a fic rated below an M. Well, maybe the occasional T. Maybe.

Politically, I...never mind, I won't bore you. Forget it, yes I will. My beliefs combine nineteenth-century anarchism with modern libertarianism.

I am an apatheist, meaning that I don't know and don't care if there is a god. But I care enough to type that I don't care. Confusing, isn't it?

My heroes include George Orwell, Thomas Jefferson, Karl Hess, Emma Goldman, Henry David Thoreau, John Peter Atgeld, Bob Dylan, Eugene Debs, Murray Rothbard, Abbie Hoffman, and Mary Wollstonecraft.

The greatest bands/artists of all time (according to me) are the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Rage Against the Machine, the Doors, Steely Dan, Robert Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Black Sabbath, Louis Armstrong, Steppenwolf, Alice Cooper, the Who, Disturbed, Billy Joel, and Muddy Waters.

Now that Ron Paul's campaign is over, I'm throwing my support behind Ralph Nader for the 2008 presidential election. I would go with the Libertarian Party, but I just don't trust Bob Barr. So... Nader/Gonzalez '08!

Movies: Match Point, A Few Good Men, Munich, Saving Private Ryan, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, any Preston Sturges movie, American History X, Apocalypse Now, Citizen Kane, The Godfather, Johnny Got His Gun, Basic, Silence of the Lambs, Sling Blade, The Royal Tenenbaums, Scarface, Gladiator, Forrest Gump, The Doors, 1984.

Books: 1984, Animal Farm, and Homage to Catalonia by George Orwell, Stranger in a Strange Land and The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein, War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy, A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, Darkness at Noon by Arthur Koestler, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, On the Road by Jack Kerouac, Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo.

My favorite colors are red and black. I love heavy metal, the blues, old hippie/folk/protest music, fudge, people in general, old hippies in particular, life, liberty, my dog, and peace. I hate modern pop, 99.999 percent of country music, pork, the government, racism, sexism, tomatoes, war, homophobia, and most large corporations.

"Absolute Power." Postgame Squinoa One-Shot. "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." --Lord Acton.


"If you took the most ardent revolutionary and vested him in absolute power, within a year he would be worse than the Czar himself."

--Mikhail Bakunin


"How many years can a mountain exist Before it is washed to the sea?

How many years can some people exist Before they're allowed to be free?

How many times must a man turn his head And pretend that he just doesn't see?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind The answer is blowin' in the wind."

--Bob Dylan
