Author has written 10 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heir series, Hero, Perry Moore, and Warcraft.
Before you ask, yes, I am, indeed, crazy. Embrace it. :)
Should you be scared to be on my profile? Maybe a little. But, I promise, I won't bite. Unless you get too close. Then, maybe just a nibble--or two. ;P
I've been on this site for a while now. I believe it to be about two and a half years, give or take a few months. I like to claim that my home archive was Percy Jackson and the Olympians, buuuut, I'd be lying. My first ever FanFiction, was an Artemis Fowl/PJO crossover, back when there were no fancy archives created esspecially for crossovers, and it stayed on the Artemis Fowl archive. Basically, it was a story about how clever Artemis figured out the exsistance of half-bloods, and so he intercepts two half-bloods, Percy and Annabeth, on a quest, and kidnaps them. Most of the story is their escape, and how they avoid being captured again.
I liked it. But, I had to delete it. There was something about it that I didn't like. Oh, yeah. It sucked.
Writing wise, grammar wise, spelling wise, plot wise, character wise. It was just...I looked back on it after I'd gained some insight on what a good peice should look like, and...I. Wanted. To. Cry. And I most certainly didn't want that the be the Artemis Fowl archive's impression of me. So, I made it go bye bye. For good good :P
I don't even remember what the title was. But now, I just call it ThankGodIt'sGone.

I guuuueeeessss I should provide a little information about myself, though I know you really don't care, it is kind of the point of the whole "profile" thing, is it not? So here it goes.
I'm male. I used to like to tell everyone I was a guy. I'm not saying I ever wasn't a guy...I was born and raised male...to the best of my recollection. I just used to get some weird thrill off using the word "guy". Don't ask why, because I don't know. And don't ask why I felt I had to explain that at all to you, because I don't know. You were warned, I am crazy. And kind of dumb...
I'm sixteen. My birthday is 11/21/94, so yes, I am a Scorpio. I used to have a bird named Scorpio
I'm a sophomore in high school. And, that, itself is an achievement, that I have survived through like...eleven years of school, not to mention preschool--which, would it be weird if I said I was more socially awkward in preschool? Eh. I don't know.
I'm gay! No, seriously. I am. No reason to be ashamed, no reason to hide it. It's just...a part of me, and as mentioned previously, this is MY profile. Me, me, me, me, oh, and of course, moi. But, one thing that you are probably interested in is whether I'm single or not? I'm not. Not anymore. After a hard battle this year with my love life, I've finally found someone who can tolerate my epic randomness. And I deserve it...we both do. I've had a hard past so far with guys and I'm just sixteen! If you want more details on THAT little adventure, PM me, I am always looking for a new person to rant to. And my love life--let's just say it is never boring. Like ever.
I've been described as kind of a scene kid. For those of you who don't know what that is, it basically means that I dress gothic, look gothic, but are in some ways different, and I don't act gothic. Like...scene kids are more of a colorful version of goths. Instead of all black, they take the style, and add color.
I'm not exactly going for this, I just take clothes I like, and wear them. But, Hot Topic and Rue21 are my BFFAEAE's. You would never catch me in anything but skinny jeans...and I mean ass-huggin' skinny jeans that takes a jar of vaseline to get in and out of. I wear converses, and band T's, and lots of colorful bracelets, rings, and necklaces, that just...create the look I'm going for.
I live in Florida. :DDDD

My writing style is unique. I get favorited a lot because of my originality, and the way I present my ideas. It's just...literature is ambiguous. It's what you make it. Sure, there are some basic rules you have to follow, but, it's not like other things, where there is only one way to do things to get the right answer. With literature, you can take what you have been through personally, and relate it back to anything.
When I write, I drive spellcheck crazy. There are so many sentences that are underlined in green, saying Fragment, consider revising. And you know what I say? Screw you, spellcheck! Spellcheck is only right about certain things. Spellcheck is programmed to work one way--but sometimes, you just kind of have to go with it. I don't change it, because that's not the way I hear what I've written in my head. And after all, it's my writing, my story, my world. So what's spell check going to do about it, spank me? Ha! I'd like to see them try. Though, I am afraid that they'd send that little paperclip they used to use for spellcheck if they had to...
You see, there's this box--a comfort zone, if you will, that most young writers are used to. I, along with a few other authors on this site, have figured out the little secret. You have to reach outside that box, or your work, is shit. Plain and simple. All the ideas in the box have already been used, that's why they're IN THE BOX. Does that make sense? Probably not, I'm crazy...I'll probably end up being an English teacher...all them bitches are insane. See! Right there. "all them bitches"? That's not grammatically correct. I don't know if you'd call it slang, persay, but, whatever the hell it is, it's not correct. But that's the way I typed it, because that's the way I heard it in my head. I thought OUTSIDE the box -patsonback-. Had I said "all those bitches", I just would have sounded like a white pimp referring to his girls. And...I'm not a pimp. Yet. xD
But...you can't take it so far as to make yourself sound stupid. It's perfectly normal for someone to say the words out loud "all them bitches". For ethnic, or whatever other reasons you may have. But, there's a point where you've gone way to far out of the box, and Scottie needs to beam you back up. You can't take it too far. And, I'm going to hope you can figure out what too far is.
I use humor a lot. Like, a lot, a lot, actually. It keeps people interested. I really, haven't written much romance, which I'm actually working on. I'm trying to figure out just how to write my own little twist into an old myth, and spin it PJO style. I want to write a oneshot for my home, I miss you guys.
So, now that it's a public statement, I guess I'm going to have to do it so I don't look like a big fat liar. :P

Alright, so Percy Jackson is awesome, but he's not the only man I love! I love many other books, mostly books that come in a series. It's just so much more enticing when you can follow your favorite characters through more than one journey. You feel like you really get to know them, like they are actual people, and if you're anything like us, you get to know them so well, you can write about them yourself. With the author's permission, of course. :)
Here are my other favorites.
The Heir Series
The 39 Clues
Stephen King novels
HERO by Perry Moore.
Yeah, I'm a fiction buff. If it's not fiction, I really honestly have absolutely no interest in it. Because, fiction is like...a true portal to another world. Like, books are one thing when they talk about things that are possible, but, they are so much more amazing when they are about the impossible--to me, it makes it feel like it is all very, very possible. Which, would make me a very happy boy.
And yes, I have read more books than the ones listed. You wanna see all the books I've read? Look in my beta profile, that pretty much narrows it down.
I have a nagging love for poetry. Because it gets me thinking about how other people see the world. I'm talking about deep poems, like Edgar Allen Poe, and Lord Byron would write. Emily Dickinson? Pishaw. Nothing compared to the genius of Poe. No offense to her fans on this site, but like I said, I'm crazy, so was Poe. We click ;P

There's not much else I can say about myself. I apologize. I know you were dying for more. :P Hehe. Maybe you'll get a chance to check out my stories? If not, that's cool. I don't mind either way. I feel that I have improved much through using this site, and want to let you know, that you can too, if you're serious about wanting to improve. But, for God sakes, get a beta reader. And listen to people who give you CC, unless they're even more clueless than you. And, take flames not as a discouragement, but a challenge to prove someone wrong.
I love flames/flamers. I used to be one. Such lovely people, really, who just want to help in their own unique brand of ways.
Anyways, I am tired. Off to bed, I suppose.
Enjoy yourselves, loves!
