Well, I thought it was about time to update my profile since it's been the same way for a really long time. First thing I decided to change was my avy. This was a picture I got out of a newspaper caption contest. This is a sea lion named Leon who decided to get some sleep before he had to perform. And seeing as I love seals and other marine animals, I thought he'd be perfect for me. Besides, who wouldn't love a face like that? There's nothing quite like a smiling seal.
So it's the new year. Where does time go I wonder? I'd like someone to find it and tell it slow down a bit. :P
As many of you have noticed, and a few of you have pointed out to me, I've been rather negligent in updating some of my stories. I won't name names, but you know who you are. Let me just state for the record that I haven't abandoned anything. Life's been busy and try as I might, I can't help that. Plus, sometimes writers lose a bit of inspiration. Sometime things just don't come together. It doesn't mean I'll never update. It's just going to take some time for it to come together. And like it or not, reminding me isn't going to make the work come easier. If anything, it's just going to make it harder.
Bit About Me:
I was born in a little log cabin in Kentucky...oh wait, that's Abraham Lincoln...
Obviously, from the name, I love seal and sea lions. If I could, I'd pet one, but I'd never get close enough to do it.
I'm also a writer, well amature. I plan to write something really big someday. Until then I write fan fiction just to stay sharp. My first fan fic was a Star Wars based fic, but I think I've done a lot better since then. Still, I had the knack for stories even then. They were rough and crude, but planned. I hate to blow my own horn, but it's hard not to.
I'm a video game freak. I've got a collection starting with the Sega Genesis all the way up to the Wii. I haven't even gotten into the handhelds yet. Counting those games, I own 100. Bet there are people out there who can beat me. I prefer action/platformers like Mario and Sonic, but I like a variety ranging from The Legend of Zelda and RPGs like Final Fantasy and Fire Emblem (my two favorites) to do-nothing simulations like The Sims 2 and business sims like Zoo Tycoon. My ultimate seal of approval for a game, or anything really, is if I can come up with a fan fic for it. What can I say? If I like it, I want to continue it.
My other hobby is LEGOs. I've got a huge collection, including the second-biggest set of all: the Death Star II. When I got it, I had bragging rights to owning the biggest LEGO set made...then they made another one.
I like music too. I'm a bit of an oldie when it comes to music. I was born and raised on the 50's, 60's and 70's. Heck, I think I'm one of the few people my age who's even heard of Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. I've even seen him in concert twice. I even shook his hand. That's not to say I don't like anything modern. I like a few things by folks like Kelly Clarkson, Celine Dion, and Natasha Bedingfield; Unwritten is one of my favorties. And if you think that makes me weird for listening to them, that's your business. I may be a guy, but that doesn't mean I can't like them. Mostly, I find inspiration in songs. Songs can be used to bookmark a lot of things, from characters to plots even how a character might feel.
I haven't had much time for a lot of my hobbies since I started going to college. When I'm not in class or studying, I don't want to do anything. But somehow I manage to buckle down and do some writing.

For the most part, I like to keep things quiet on what I plan to do, but I figure I can give you some ideas. I plan on writing more Fire Emblem one shots, obviously. I also have another Castlevania and a Harvest Moon story in the works. The former will be a one-shot, but the later will be a chapter'ed story. I also plan on expanding my horizons into the old west. I also hope to write my first collaboration story in the hopes that I can write others in the future. Consider it a trial run.
As for anything else, just wait and see. You never know what inspiration will come your way. I sure as heck don't.
This section is for those quotes that I found just plain funny and in some cases, my thoughts on them. It's small for now, but I'm sure it'll grow.
"Come back later...I am sleeping. (Yes, cookies need their sleep, too)" - Fortune Cookie
"Looks like Hootie ate the Blowfish." - Host of Wipeout.
"Women know what men want. Men know what men want." - Jerry Seinfeld
"Am I gone? Yes, you are." - AFV Host
"Fear the bug!" - Mantis
"These...are birds." - Evan Baxter
"A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins, nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to." - Gandalf
If you believe in Jesus Christ put this in your profile and don't just ignore this, because in the Bible it says if you deny me, I will deny you in front of my Father in the gates of Heaven.
There are many ways I could say this, but I'd say the words spoken by my friend DM say it better than I ever could. I seem to be a person of words, but it's of words that don't count. These words on the other hand do count.
The Most Important Decision of Your Life
1. God’s plan for man was simple: Have an earth that will praise Him and glorify His Name.
This is God’s free gift to man. All that is needed are three things: Confession, Acceptance, and Repentance.
If you have any questions on the Most Important Decision, or anything else about your walk with God, feel free to PT me. I would love to help you find rest and relief in Him.
I pray that you make this decision to accept Him, and make Him the center of your life. It is truly life-changing. If you already know Him, or just have, please put this passage in your profile, that others may come to know Him as well.
Oh, and by the way, if you ask me to read your work, I'd appreciate it if you read some of mine. In the words of Gollum, we be nice to them if they be nice to us. Even if you just review my work, I'll check out your lists to see if there's anything I'd be into. I won't lie, I won't read something unless I've played it, seen it, or understand enough. I'd probably be confused otherwise even after you explained it.
That's all for now. See ya 'round the boards.
