Author has written 1 story for Blood And Chocolate.
Name: Scott. Previously I reviewed under S.
pen name: redknight (I have an obsession with medieval Europe and knights, and I have reddish hair so...redknight, nice huh?)
Gender: (just to clarify since I know virtually everyone on this site is female) I'm a guy
Sports= I'm in football, basketball, track, and baseball.
Other Activities= band, choir, one-act, speech, quiz bowl and debate.
I don't think that I'll be writing on this site (edited, I dont think I'll be writing MUCH), but for the sake of the people I review for, I thought I'd say I little about myself. An amazing person I know who writes on this site (melissaturkey) is always saying that its frusterating not knowing who your audience is, that its easier to write for them if you know the age range and interests. I assume that other fan fiction net authors feel the same so I wrote a little bit.
Some examples of why the human race has probably evolved as far as possible. These are actual instruction labels on consumer goods..

On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
Product will be hot after heating.

On packaging for a Rowenta iron:
Do not iron clothes on body.
(But wouldn't that save more time?)Whose body?)
On Boot's Children's cough medicine:
Do not drive car or operate machinery.
(We could do a lot to reduce the construction accidents if we just kept those 5 year olds off those fork lifts.)
On Nytol sleep aid:
Warning: may cause drowsiness.
(One would hope!)
On a Korean kitchen knife:
Warning: keep out of children.
(hmm..something must have gotten lost in the translation..
On a string of Christmas lights:

Not to be used for the other use.

On a Swedish chainsaw:
Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.
(Raise your hand if you've tried this.)
On a child's Superman costume:
Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.
(Oh go ahead! That's right, destroy a universal childhood belief.)

My mother really isnt that bad, but she is a bit eccentric...
A girl and guy were speeding over 100mph on a motorcycle
Girl: Slow down, I'm scared!
Guy: No, this is fun.
Girl: No, it's not. Please, I'm scared.
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: I love you, now slow down!
Guy: Now give me a big hug.
She gives him a big hug
Guy: Can you take off my helmet and put it on yourself, it's bothering me.
In the newspaper the next day, a motorcycle had crashed into a building because of break failure. Two people were on it and only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized his break wasn't working but he didn't want the girl to know. Instead he had her hug him and tell him one last time that she loved him. Then he had her put on his helmet so that she would live even if he died.
