I'm probably one of the few Male FF Writers on FF.net. I'm also one of the even fewer who prefers villains to heroes.
I'm a only child, and a history buff, who enjoys reading, video games, and action/ sci fi/ mystery flicks. Currently enrolled in college, but have yet to actually go off yet.
If you want my life's story, like most profiles on this site, you're wasting time here then. One thing that in my mind sets me apart from most people is that I am not a "dove", not by most standards. I am very much a hawk, but one who sees military force as the last step to be used. I also prefer villains to heroes, and favor darker, and morally grey situations over the optimistic "Star Trek" version, with clean resolutions.
Reasoing as to why I like villans over heroes:
1. You never hear a villian get dissed by the civilians, not without immediate and painful steps being taken to ensure that never happens again.
2. Better stress relief.
3. Joker Immunity.
4. It's better to be feared than loved.
5. The Empire will always strike back, but the Alliance won't.
Preferred ships: MShep/Ash
Vermont Chronicles: Discontinued
Hannibal Returns: Discontinued
The Sleeping Casket: Hiatus.
In case I don't make it back: Completed
Chronicles of a Hybrid: Canceled.
1. OOC, with absolutely NO basis in canon, save from a couple throwaway lines.
2. MPreg. Just. Mpreg.
3. Heroes who get off without consequences when they temporarily turn evil.
4. Making a character that the author dislikes into a Ron the Death Eater (yeah, I'm a Troper)
5. Inserting a OC to break up a canon relationship, and seeing nothing wrong with it.
6. Bad grammar/spelling. I'm no grammar NSDAP, but take some time and use Spell Check. I understand if English isn't your 1st language, but that only goes so far.
7. People who feel that any Self-Insert they do automatically has to bring in all sorts of fancy new tech and just throw the status quo out the window. I'm looking at you, Into the Fire!
8. This is directed at Halo crossover authors, but try and remember, if you have aliens show up to aid the UNSC, ADD SOME F*ING TENSION BETWEEN THE HUMANS AND ALIENS! Yes, the aliens may be saving their asses, but remember, the UNSC has been fighting for 27 years against aliens, and there will be lots of tension between the two races. Also, don't have all the bridges just mend because a alien hooks up with a OC.
9. Mary Sues, they just ruin any interest in a story.
10. People who when doing crossovers, make one faction way too overpowered, like say, A Long Way From Home, or Mass Effect Supreme Commander.
11. People who think the Federation can triumph against the Empire, without using 11th hour technical surprises.
12. Let's just say, I like the Empire over the Alliance anyday of the week, and leave it at that.
13. People who fail to read the background material for a story, then act surprised when they get flamed for failing to follow the canon material.
Suggestions for FF writers
1.Try adding in BIG flaws with your OCs, and make them sympathetic.
2. The villian does not always gets his just deserts. Just remember that.
3. Good= not always light.
3a. Dark= not always evil.
4. Epic speeches should sound epic when said out loud.
5. Subtle foreshadowing is highly advised.
6. Research any and all terms prior to usage.
7. Rock DOES beat laser on occasion. But for the most part, laser beats rock.
8. Anyone can die. Use that bit for dramatic tension.
9. Cliffhangers are nice, but after awhile can get very annoying.
10. Don't be afraid to retcon work if new source material comes out.
11. Dark universes like Wh40K SHOULDN'T ever be made light. That means, if Star Trek meets the IOM, there is going to be blood, and it ain't going to be from the IOM.
12. Don't piss off the fans.
13. My Immortal/ Half Life Full Consequences SHOULDN'T be your motivation for writing FF.
14. The Emperor ain't leaving his throne any time soon. Deal with it.
15. If you hate a character, fine, just don't let it influence your writing. Too much.
16. Fantasy, when meeting Sci-fi, doesn't always win.
17. The plucky underdogs don't usually win. That's life. Deal with it.
18. When you mix black and white, all you get is grey. No matter how much black and white you add in, it's still going to be just grey.
19. Actions have consequences. Always. And they aren't always good for all involved either.
20. When the humans return to Pandora, they will be... removing the Na'vi from the equation. Deal with it.
21. Try to limit X-overs to only 2 elements. Adding more in is just asking for trouble.
Mass Effect Witing tips
1. Try doing a RENEGADE Shep, instead of the cliche Paragon that is so common. Paragades do NOT count!
2. Avoid common ships, and try to come up with one that isn't very common, ex. M!Shep/Ash, or F!Shep/Wrex, for instance.
3. Make sure that Horizon HAS tension/consequences, if you decide to reunite Ash or Alenko with the Commander.
4. The Council is a bunch of shortsighted idiots. That's a staple of any ME fic.
5. Take inspiration from other writers fics, BUT credit them in your AN.
6. Morally grey actions are recommended.
7. Cerberus is not the root of all evil, and neither is TIM. Just remember, the Alliance created them, and used them for years, so they deserve some blame.
8. When the Reapers come, to quote TDK Joker"See, their morals, their "code"... it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be.When the chips are down, these uh, these "civilized people", they'll eat each other. " Take that how you will.
9. In war, people DIE. As in, when the Reapers come, there should be death, there should be loss, and there should be defeat, occasionally.
Tips on how to create a original character, without inadvertently making a Mary Sue
1. Humanize them. Give them obvious, glaring flaws! Give them times when they’re mistaken, and make them relatively often.
2. Clearly define a person’s abilities and their limits. That means, if you’re making a superhero, his weaknesses should be clearly, and consistently used. It also means that simply giving him new powers every chapter is a no-no.
3. When in the military, stunts like Maverick’s flybys WILL get you tossed from the service, regardless of your talents. The military doesn’t like people who endanger others, and multimillion dollar pieces of equipment, due to their arrogance.
4. Don’t eclipse other canon characters. For instance, if I was doing a OC for Shepard’s team in Mass Effect 2, I would create a character whose role would be to act as a explosives specialist, and train him as such.
5. Your OC shouldn’t be a author’s mouthpiece about every single thing that you hate about the universe.
6. The most important rule of all is: For the love of God, DO NOT apply double standards to your Sue’s actions, and the actions of others.
