Author has written 6 stories for Batman the Animated Series, Pokémon, and Young Justice.
I'm a sixteen year old guy and I enjoy writing and reading stories, particularly in the DC Universe, even more particular: Batman. I probably like Pokemon more, though. I might post some Young Justice sometime! I so hope we'll get a season three...(if you're interested and willing to work hard to write a season 3 fanfiction with me, please PM!)
I think this is a neat site and I enjoy spending a little time on it here and there to read and critique other stories.
I have a great opportunity and responsibility to write at the very least a page every weekday as part of my schoolwork, and so I plan to contribute to this community (and fictionpress, as GuyBoyPerson) with that writing.
Now I may like writing and reading, superheroes may be cool, and Pokemon may be fun, but someone greater than anything I've ever known has been revealed to me. His name is Jesus Christ. He not only made us, but he died for us. He was fully God and fully man, and He provided such a perfect plan of salvation to save us from our sins! Only in Him can we truly live. He is God, He is the One true thing worthy of praise. He is the One God. He is the Lord of all Creation! He is the only thing we can live for that will be worth it in the end. And I won't forget to mention the other option-hell. We can burn for eternity. Its the sad truth-but not so sad when we accept God! It may seem offensive, but it is true, and I know it is true.
Its like this. We sinned. We've all sinned. You've sinned, I've sinned, something as "small" we'd consider it as telling a lie, or "big" as committing a murder. We've all done something bad. And God is perfect. God is greater than us all. He is above all the greatest and most wonderful being. As such, He has high standards for who he'd let into heaven. Who would he let? One who was perfect, completely clean and clear of any and all sin.
Jesus' name is above every other name. I want to live like it is, and prove that His name is glorious! That His name is true! That His name is holy and above every other name!
"Riddled with Fear" and "Define" are both currently on hiatus as I seek to outline and improve both stories. I hope to re-post soon.
My three Pokemon stories, "Never In A Thousand Years", "Measures of Greatness", and "The Guild" are set in the same universe. "Define" is set in a seperate universe. Never In A Thousand Years takes place twenty years before the events in "Measures of Greatness" and "The Guild", which take place at the same time. I plan some small tie-ins, but the biggest tie in would be "Never In A Thousand Years" character Ivan being the same Ivan in "Measures of Greatness", though Ivan is not the main character of "Never In A Thousand Years".
Give your stories some "OOMPH"! This is just something I thought up recently. Opening, Order, Mission, Peril, Heart. Make sure your chapter's opening is good, captivating, and interesting. And then make sure everything's in order. Not just the continuity, things need to make sense. Next is mission: what is your character doing? Why are they doing it? Remind us of their mission. Peril: a little action keeps your story moving and exciting. I think every chapter should have at least a little action. Finally, give your story heart. This is not just a chapter by chapter thing, this is an overall story thing. We want to be with your characters, to feel with them, to go through their problem with them. Is your story lacking in any area? Try "OOMPH" and please tell me if it helps!
Are you bad at writing romance? Are you struggling to explain your character's surroundings? Is your dialogue poor and un-engaging? Are you bad at spelling? I suggest you do this: Read a story that is very good in the areas you fail. I really wasn't so good at journeys or traveling, I didn't know how to make it seem long, and then I started reading "The Lord of the Rings" series and I think I began to understand it better. I also started writing in a more proper manner, I think, closer to Tolkien's proper language. I think its very important for a writer to continue reading, and that we will pick up on our favorite writer's techniques and styles. About spelling, just use spell-check! I think its a fan-fiction rule that you're supposed to use spell-check before you post your stories anyways. Don't have one on your browser? The document manager has one. Using spell-check is not that hard, though sometimes it can be tedious. However, I think its always worth it. Your story looks unprofessional and unappealing if you have a lot of spelling errors and I can often be turned off to a story when the spelling is bad.
I've seen some ads talking about legalizing gay marriage recently, and I want to explain where I, as a Christian, stand on homosexuality.
I love homosexuals as much as any other person. I don't love what they do. I don't hate a person because of what they do. I hate what's done. Some Christians seem to hate homosexuals and curse and say all manner of terrible things about them. I hate a sin, not a sinner. Whether its homosexual acts or cursing another person, we all have sinned. Don't curse someone because they say they're gay. I don't approve of homosexuality, but I could still love a person who was a homosexual.

OC Template for "Measures of Greatness"
I could use plenty of OCs, both good guys and bad guys. (You can explain which in personality) I could use unimportant characters as well as some who will be more important. I currently have only four important characters. I will decided whether your character will be a more important one, but I will try to incorporate all characters. Thank you for your interest. I will accept characters submitted through private messages. Please follow this template to send me an OC.
