I like to write.
That's pretty much all you need to know.
Ace Bullets has written 13 completed Flashpoint stories, '20 Minutes to Oblivion', 'Wash the Pain', 'Truce', 'No Solution', 'One Mean Cat', 'Five Things That Never Happened to Donna Sabine', 'Five Things That Never Happened to Ed Lane', 'Five Things That Never Happened to Sam Braddock', 'Five Things That Never Happened to Jules Callaghan','Clean Hands; Shaky Hands', 'A New Life, Interrupted', 'To Comfort the Afflicted' and 'But Not For Me'.
The Five Things That Never Happened to... is a format that intrigues me, and I've decided to use it to explore several SRU characters. Amazing how those muses start singing when you tell them canon is not a factor.
Ace's stories are generally ship-free zones. Unless the relationships are established and canonical, characters will not be thrown together for the sake of throwing them together. Think Wordy/Shelley, Ed/Sophie, Greg/Marina. If you're looking for Sam/Jules action, you will not find anything overt. Hinted at and touched-upon, yes; serious shipping, no. You will clearly not find non-canonical pairings like Ed/Jules, Spike/Kira, Ed/Donna, Sam/Donna, Lou/Jules, or any combination of slash pairings. Ace does make the occasional dip into the AU pool, however, where almost anything might happen.
Yes. You've guessed it. Ace is anal about canon when writing episodic-type stories, and only invents details where canon has not yet provided said details. (See SRU Team Three member roster in 'No Solution' as an example).
So while Ace may be a romantic at heart, there won't be any kissy-kissy stuff to 'ruin' the action.
Ace wishes to thank all of those who've read and reviewed the above stories, and looks forward to your continued support.

Fan Fiction Writer's Code of Conduct - as written by SAR132-4
As a fan fiction writer I will:
- Be bound by the rules of canon (aka, making canon act like they do in the show)
- Not make an OC that I insert be like me in any way, shape or form.
- Get spell check on my computer, or at least ask someone to Beta me.
- Not God-mod an OC, meaning that they will not have lasers shooting out of their eyes, make someone die just by staring at them or make them be able to destroy the world just by farting.
- Not make an OC make someone act out of character because that’s just Mary-Sue
- Make sure my OCs are not Mary-Sue by taking the litmus test.
- Not make any Author Notes longer than the actual story, or interrupt the flow of stories by inserting parenthetical comments (like this! Tee hee! _).
- Not write fictions that make no sense.
- Use proper punctuation and quotations.
- Read over my chapters before posting.
- Separate ideas into paragraphs and not make the whole thing one block of text.
- Be kind and courteous to other fiction writers.
- Review stories I read and offer constructive criticism instead of copy and pasting flames.
- Abide by the guidelines at all times.
- Act mature to all flames received and not take them personally
- Include proper warnings and ratings in the summary and not write “I suck at summaries”.
I will abide by this Code of Conduct as a fan fiction writer to improve my writing, and help others.
(Thanks, SAR... The Code has been established!)
