Welcome to my page. Let me start off by offering my most sincere greetings for taking your time to visit it. Also, the profile has undergone a massive revamp.
Hello there, Soldier of the Future here to give you a warm welcome for checking out my page for starters. Currently, I live in Canada but the dull lifestyle here makes me want to travel more often. Yes, I had inspirations to be a soldier when I was younger but my physical limits prevent that. Still, it's a possibility, perhaps a very strong one, in the future.
...yes, I know war is a horrible thing and I do not embrace and glorify it. My stories, at least the ones that relate to the subject, are supposed to tell the horrors of warfare and the effects it has on those who unfortunately have to participate in it.
Being a brief yet descriptive reviewer, I try to point out the positives but also focus on the negatives, but in a constructive way. I do not tolerate flames or offensive reviews, so don't think I'll treat you kindly should you choose that perilous path.
As my beta put it bluntly once, "this site is full of dunderheads". It may sound harsh but it's reality.
I've got too many likes and dislikes to name. If you want to know more, badger me via messaging and I will definitely respond. While I may be a humble and modest person, do not test me. Don't go out of the way to send me an offensive message just so you can satisfy your sadistic side. I know I sound harsh, but as some anonymous reviews dictated, it happens more than you think.
I do not own the profile picture or any content here that isn't made by me personally.

Stories gone AWOL:
Pokemon Heroes: Uprising: An unofficial sequel to the movie Pokemon Heroes, possesses a somewhat alternate universe reference but will nevertheless stick with the anime (especially the movies, in particular).
This story is currently on hold for an indefinite period of time due to a mess of difficulties. My beta discontinuing his support for the story, my work schedule being tougher than ever, Game Freak constantly pumping out new releases and having to keep up with every consecutive generation/remake (X/Y being released 2 years after Gen 5 and an incoming remake due this fall), and a slowly deteriorating fanbase are among the reasons. It will not be deleted, and I might consider posting the remaining chapters that I've finished over the last two years or so.
RIP Pokemon Heroes Uprising, February 2011-August 2014.
Will Uprising, or my interest in Pokemon, return?
This is something that I cannot provide an answer for at the moment. Ever since September, it's been a very rough two months for me, being laid off from two jobs in such a short timespan. My new job is extremely demanding in regards to energy and spirit, and has an entirely new schedule that prevents me from devoting my time to my interests. However, a small spark has sort of reignited my interest towards the series ever since my brother got Alpha Sapphire - but a brief overview of Uprising has made it very difficult for me to salvage properly - in addition, I do not wish to restart it from scratch due to all the progress I made. My writing style has also changed drastically...meaning that I have doubt in my abilities to write extremely long and descriptive chapters now.
With my beta gone for good (for now) and the loss of several friends that I made on this site due to a series of conflicts, I heavily doubt that I will be able to make a full return. The most I will do is make short fics based on the characters I've established for the Uprising universe.
Featured Fics (works that I consider to be my best):
Metal Slugopedia: A fan-made encyclopedia that composes of both canon and fanmade information from the Metal Slug universe.
An Interview with Marco Rossi: Oneshot that details the past and later life of the iconic legendary commando from the Metal Slug games. Fanmade content made by me and MegaAuthor will be included.
Pokemon Heroes: Memories and Shadows of Alto Mare: A three-chapter story that acts as the prequel to Pokemon Heroes: Uprising.
Pokemon Ranger: Arcanines of War: A single-chapter prequel to Pokemon Heroes: Uprising.
Age of the Devil's Sun: A one-chapter story that summarizes the Doom timeline from the eyes of another human soldier.
Finished stories (no more future updates, listed in chronological order of release):
A Day in Pong
Discontinued/never formally released/dead stories:
The Subspace Emissary: The Days After: This fic was just bad when I first released it. Okay, it wasn't my first fanfic written, but it certainly was downright unacceptable in regards to quality issues.
Metal Slug-The Guerrilla Wars and Metal Slug-Apocalypse Sky: It's official; these stories are dead. After remaining dormant for well over a year and with my full attention on Uprising (at least until that died too), I just don't have the attention, dedication, and effort to continue these in spite of the gigantic amounts of ideas that I had planned for them. Maybe they'll see a revival in the future, but for now, I hereby declare these fics to be killed in action. Special thanks goes to MegaAuthor for his continued reviews and support for this series and I am forever grateful for his extensive support. Perhaps in the future, I'll make more fics based on Metal Slug.
I've also deleted some stories because they didn't meet my satisfactions in terms of quality or overall structure.
If you actually took the patience and read all of this, you deserve a medal.
