Author has written 3 stories for Harry Potter, Sailor Moon, and Warcraft.
Well hello to you, guys and gals. I guess a proper introduction is in order. I am DJ Quicksilver, formerly known as Kibaikasu. I have been a fan of fanfiction since 2001, and a member of this community since 2002. After several years of quiet reading, working, and contemplating, I am finally back and ready to start experimenting again with my writing. I'll be mostly working on revamping my writing style to better reflect my growth as a writer compared to where I used to be at. For those of you that want to see some of my original fanfics from when I first started delving as a young, curious boy of 15, here is a link to my original Bio, where all my previous stories are currently saved in their entirety (or at least, up to the point that I wrote them =P). https://www.fanfiction.net/u/93305/Kibaikasu
A little about myself, I'm 31, male, single, Cuban, in love with Hard Rock, Trance (and it's MANY sub-genres') and House music, and am a hardcore-turned-casual gamer, particularly fond of old school console games (from NES up to Gamecube/PS2), World of Warcraft, the Diablo series, Minecraft, and am growing an interest with Path of Exile. In terms of books, I'm a fan of the Harry Potter series and the Eragon series, I'm also into a couple of anime and movies and do read fanfics of those genres as well, though I haven't actually touched a manga in years. XD
When it comes to writing, I find two things tend to hamper me. The first and worst is burn-out. When I get burned out, I normally don't recover for a very long time, so yeah. I'll try to take it slow this go around and see what happens. The second is time. Real life slows down for no one. That and the fact that the mobile ("free") version of Microsoft Word insists on me paying for Office 360 (I don't like using other document processors) and you have the recipe of a writing disaster.
I only find Writer's Block to be an issue if I am working on a half-developed story. I find that if I actually sit down and plan a story out, it tends to write itself most of the time. The source material for the fanfics that I write is always a good source of inspiration for me, and I usually have no issue incorporating elements of other works or even real life scenarios into my works to spice them up.
That's it for me, have fun looking around, and I hope to hear from you. Should anyone need to get in contact with me, my contact email is djquicksilver85 (at) gmail (dot) com, just replace the obvious and there you go. I also respond to PM's, though fair warning - it might take me a while to do so, especially if IRL is being a bastard as it's been prone to be at the best of times. If you do contact me via PM and I don't respond in the first few days, I ask for patience. It might take me a week, or even a month, but I will always respond.
Identity Crisis - This is a bit of a scenario that I've had running through my head for a while now, so I decided 'Eh, why not?' and decided to whip something up off the top of my head. It's my first ever SM fic, so we'll see how it goes. This one explores the world of Crystal Tokyo in a future where Chibiusa has been forced to... well, lets just say 'change' and leave it at that. For right now the Usa/Hotaru pairing is a side thing to the main story (mostly since all of the pairings I have written so far have been hetero, this really is my first foray into shoujo-ai/yuri), but will very much be central to the plot.
Status: Permanent Hiatus - rewrite pending.
Acts of Sacrifice - Explores a world where Arthas Menethil becomes the Lich King for an entirely different reason than in the main storyline. This is a world where the Lich King is in fact a noble being with honor and the safety of the world defining his actions, rather than its destruction. This one is a story I've actually been contemplating ever since I started playing Burning Crusade. It fell out of my mind for a while but then came back full force when Wrath of the Lich King came out, and finally during patch 3.4 when we finally got to fight the LK and see the end of Arthas. This is the first story in the Acts Trilogy.
CHAPTER 6: UNDER DEVELOPMENT - 10% COMPLETE
Project: Shapeshifter - This is the temporary title to a Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess fanfic that will soon be in development. It will loosely be based off several concepts that I used in a previous fic under my old Fanfiction.net account, refined and polished (aka: twisted and mangled) to fit my newer writing style and the TP universe as opposed to other games. More to come on this later.
PROLOGUE: UNDER DEVELOPMENT - 0% COMPLETE
Unleashed Rage - A Dragonball Z fanfiction involving the main concepts from my 2 DBZ stories found on my old account - Gohan launching into space after fighting a bad guy (in this case, Cell) and Gohan being independent and on his own. This will take place during the High School saga, and I'm still debating whether or not to include Buu in this story, as I'm working on this mainly as a back-burner, a side project for when I find inspiration for my main stories to be... difficult to come across, lets say.
PROLOGUE: UNDER DEVELOPMENT - 90% COMPLETE
Exile - A Star Wars story in which Darth Vader experiences the original trilogy as a Force vision while enroute to Mustafar during RotS. Faced with his future and realizing what he has done, he vanishes. The premise of the story shows a universe where an unstable Anakin Skywalker must live with the consequences of his actions and the impact they have on those he cares for while everyone still has to deal with a galaxy at war. This particular story kind of developed on its own over the years. The plan is to turn this into a Trilogy and will probably be my secondary project along side the Acts trilogy.
PROLOGUE: UNDER DEVELOPMENT - 0% COMPLETE
The Fallen - After having to deal with a personal hardship back home, I just can't seem to look at this story with the same eye that I did when I had started it, so I'm canning it. If anyone wants to continue it, email me or PM me.
Update: 10/07/2016 - 1530hrs
I wanted to take the time to update all of you guys on my situation.
I'm about 2 month's post-op now, and I'm not gonna lie - it's been a huge change for me. I can only eat 4oz at a time, and have to eat a lot more frequently, up to 5 or even 6 times per day! I have to take vitamin supplements multiple times a day. That includes a multivitamin, B12, Calcium, and D various at minimum with each meal. It's been driving me nuts just trying to keep up with all of it, as I frequently have to stop what I'm doing and go out of my way just to get the stuff down my gullet. I've had to start doing exercise on a regular basis, and not just cardio either. I had to, on doctor's orders, start weight lifting, else I risk my skin hanging loose all over the place when the rapid weight loss starts hitting me. Needless to say, it's been a painful 2 months.
I started upping my gaming again. I renewed my subscription for World of Warcraft for the new Legion expansion and have had a blast playing that, though I'm starting to feel the effects of burnout from how grindy it's gotten with the World Quests and the Mythic dungeons, all while working on professions and waiting on my guildmates to catch up on their levels and gearing. I also started playing Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls to get my ARPG fix in (I'd probably be playing Path of Exile too if not for the fact that I'm waiting on my cousin to upgrade his PC to something that doesn't play like a potato, or an EA server). I kinda grew tired of endlessly playing Minecraft and wanted something new, so I started playing No Man's Sky in it's place (despite all the negativity surrounding that game, it's not that bad of a play-through imho, I've had fun thus far). Finally, my cousin is trying desperately to get me to play Dark Souls 3. I told him that I'd think about it, though I highly doubt I would ever commit to playing that game due to the fact that I love myself too much to put myself through that misery.
Finally, in regards to my writing: I have been reworking the epilogue for Acts of Sacrifice for a while now. I have so many different ideas on how to end that story that I've gone through no less than 11 rewrites thus far. I've narrowed it down to 2 possible arcs, and I'm leaning towards one in particular that will deal heavily with the Forsaken and Sylvanas Windrunner. That's about as far as I'm willing to go as far as spoilers for the epilogue, but thus far I've got a ton of ideas on how to proceed from the end of AoS and into the beginning of AoV.
So that's it. I'm hopeful to have the epilogue done "soon", expect it to be up by around mid-November if not sooner. Yes, I know I'm a snail when it comes to update speed. No, it's not gonna get better anytime soon. My schedule is still hectic and will remain so for the foreseeable future, and considering writing isn't what I would call my "main hobby" and is something I turn to only when I feel the need to express my creative side outside of gaming, well... you get the picture. Either way, I thank you for sticking around for the ride, and I hope to see you in the next story as well.
Always thinking of you, my fans,
In The Mix Since 2002
