Fic Status (In no particular order): For my philosophy on updating deadlines, please see the very first quote in my long list of them below this section.

Active:

Beyond the Wall. I wrote 20,000 words for this, and they're all shit. I may go back and fix it at some point. I may not.

Finished

Enough

My Turn

Change

Leviathan

Convergence

Without Hesitation

Dead:

Once More Unto the Breach is dead. I've been in denial about that since I lost the next chapter to a computer crash in late 2009, but there's no point in hiding it anymore. I may consider letting someone take over if they want to, though.


Where to start?

Right... Well I've been reading fanfics for a while, and at some point back in 2009 I got an account to post a something that I wrote, and things have spiraled downwards since then. Mostly I hang out in the video game section because there's so much more unexplored space surrounding game plots that good writers can fill in.

I enjoy the Halo games, but sadly I don't own 2, 3, Reach or 4 (no xbox or 360), so anything related to them in my fics might be slightly off. (You can thank the Halo Wiki that I know anything at all about them) The other video games I play are mostly RTS and RPG games, most notably Command and Conquer and the Neverwinter Nights RPGs. These days I also play Mass Effect 1, 2 and 3(FemShep, Infiltrator, for those who care). I've worked my way through both Half-Life games. Finally, my favorite shooter of all time is Star Wars: Republic Commando, but I've never read the accompanying books.

I'm also one of those weird people who like older games because A) They're still perfectly good, and graphics aren't the end all be all--for instance, I play Marathon every now and then, and B) Staying a couple of years behind the gaming curve is cheaper by far than being on the cutting edge. I believe XKCD has something to say about that. I have Planescape Torment and both Baldur's Gate games lying around somewhere for when I feel like proving this.

At the same time, I read far too often, but I love books, so it's not really a problem. In particular, Glen Cook's Black Company and its sequels are excellent (the rest of his works are also worth reading), as is Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen, but I'm still a sucker for the works of Tolkien and The Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss are downright amazing. Also of note are:

Neal Stephenson, Tad Williams, Diana Wynne Jones (RIP, you will be missed), Joe Haldeman, Robert A. Heinlein (Well, Starship Troopers, anyways), Dan Abnett, Robert Jordan, Jim Butcher, Meghan Whalen Turner, Johnathan Stroud, Sandy Mitchell, Robin Hobb, Robin McKinley, Garth Nix, Sherwood Smith, Terry Pratchet, Neil Gaiman, Kristen Britain, Elizabeth Moon, Orson Scott Card, Patricia C. Wrede, George R. R. Martin, Gav Thrope, Mercedes Lackey, Elizabeth Haydon, Lloyd Alexander (I grew up on the Chronicles of Prydain), David Weber, Guy Gavriel Kay, William Gibson, Dan Simmons, John Le Carre, Alastair Reynolds, and even Tamora Pierce on occasion.

Try saying all of that in one breath, I only got to George R. R. Martin before I needed air. It's 35 different authors, people, and those are only the ones who really impressed me, or were important for other reasons.

That is without all the various author's whose works I have read but whose names I have forgotten which have left an impact one me. There's this one trilogy in particular that I remember most of the plot too, but couldn't name if my life depended on it--The downside of library books. And I'm not even going to start in on the Nonfiction. Almost all of the above can be found in one of my bookcases. For great Fanfiction Authors, check my favorite authors section, then check my favorite stories section, since there are authors I really like that I never got around to favoriting (In other words, I forgot).

A few things I have learned about writing: Certain college courses are very conductive to writing fiction. To date, these have been World History part 1, Discrete Mathematics, and Digital Logic. I'm sure as I continue through the next three years more of these will make themselves known. Mostly, these are the classes where I write rather than paying attention. World History 1 was also helpful for other reasons.

Also, please note that whatever Katsuhiro says, I'm only responsible for the Halo: Chimera Rising TV Tropes page. I didn't do The Enemy of my Enemy page, so I wasn't the one who ruined his life. Now go read Enemy of my Enemy. It's far better than anything I've written, and more than worth the time it takes to get through it.

Finally, I also play Warhammer 40K, as the Dark Angels Chapter of the Space Marines. If that meant nothing too you, then you are nowhere near as nerdy as I am.


Favorite Quotes (This section will probably keep going until the day I die):

“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.” --Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

"The story so far: In the beginning the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move." --Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

“There are three things all wise men fear: the sea in storm, a night with no moon, and the anger of a gentle man.” --Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

“It's the questions we can't answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he'll look for his own answers.” --Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear

“Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.” --Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

“If you want to write a fantasy story with Norse gods, sentient robots, and telepathic dinosaurs, you can do just that. Want to throw in a vampire and a lesbian unicorn while you're at it? Go ahead. Nothing's off limits. But the endless possibility of the genre is a trap. It's easy to get distracted by the glittering props available to you and forget what you're supposed to be doing: telling a good story. Don't get me wrong, magic is cool. But a nervous mother singing to her child at night while something moves quietly through the dark outside her house? That's a story. Handled properly, it's more dramatic than any apocalypse or goblin army could ever be.” --Patrick Rothfuss

Nameless One: What can change the nature of a man?

The Transcendent One: I have seen you live a countless lives, Broken One, I have lived your endless quests that accomplish nothing except spread your torment though the multiverse. Then, this is my answer and you are my proof: Nothing can change the nature of a man.

Nameless One: You are wrong. If there is anything I have learned in my travels across the Planes, it is that many things may change the nature of a man. Whether regret, or love, or revenge or fear - whatever you believe can change the nature of a man, can. I've seen belief move cities, make men stave off death, and turn an evil hag's heart half-circle. This entire Fortress has been constructed from belief. Belief damned a woman, whose heart clung to the hope that another loved her when he did not. Once, it made a man seek immortality and achieve it. And it has made a posturing spirit think it is something more than a part of me.

The Transcendent One: Believe what you will. You will die again, and you will forget again.

--Planescape: Torment

"Life is pain, Highness! Anyone who says different is selling something." -- Wesley, The Princess Bride

"I know not what weapons world war three will be fought with, but world war four will be fought with sticks and stones." --Albert Einstein

"The world is neither just nor unjust. It's just us trying to feel that there's some sense in it" --"Where the Birds Always Sing", The Cure

"Live by the foma (harmless lies) that make you brave and kind and happy and helpful" -- Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut

"Those who act like they know everything annoy those of us who really do!" --Author Unknown

Only two things are infinite: The universe and human stupidity. And I'm not sure about the former. --Albert Einstein

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that leads to total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --Litany Against Fear, from Dune, by Frank Herbert.

"you strangle me entangle me in hopelessness and prayers for rain."(sic.) --"Prayers for Rain" by The Cure

"Taste the water from a stream of running death
Eat the apple and cough a dying breath" -- "Radioactive Toy" by Porcupine Tree

"And Pride is just another way
Of trying to deal with my mistakes
Denial is a better way
of getting through another day
And Silence is another way
Of saying what I wanna say
And lying is another way
Of hoping it will go away" -- "I Drive the Hearse" by Porcupine Tree

"When life gives you lemons, make grape juice, then sit back awhile the world tries to figure out how you did it" -- Anon.

"Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing--after they've tried everything else." --Winston Churchill

"We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails" --Anon.

"Fair winds and following seas." --Traditional Sailor's farewell/well-wishing.

"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day." --Henry V, The Life of Henry V, William Shakespeare.

"If you find yourself in a fair fight, you didn't plan you mission properly." --Anon.

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams... glitter in the dark near Tannhauser Gate. All those... moments will be lost... in time, like tears... in rain..." --Roy Batty, Blade Runner.

"I know they tell ya, never hit a man with a closed fist, but it is on occasion hilarious." --Mal Reynolds, Firefly

"Words that everyone once used are now obsolete, and so are the men whose names were once on everyone's lips: Camillus, Caeso, Volesus, Dentatus, and to a lesser degree Scipio and Cato, and yes, even Augustus, Hadrian, and Antoninus are less spoken of now than they were in their own days. For all things fade away, become the stuff of legend, and are soon buried in oblivion. Mind you, this is true only for those who blazed once like bright stars in the firmament, but for the rest, as soon as a few clods of earth cover their corpses, they are 'out of sight, out of mind.' In the end, what would you gain from everlasting remembrance? Absolutely nothing. So what is left worth living for? This alone: justice in thought, goodness in action, speech that cannot deceive, and a disposition glad of whatever comes, welcoming it as necessary, as familiar, as flowing from the same source and fountain as yourself." --Marcus Aurelius

"The truth? [...] You look like every other slab chested, over-shouldered, testosterone poisened grunt I've worked with. You're hard to see around, and you look optimistic about your chances for becoming something more than just meat for the grinder. You look like a fresh cog in the battered, weathered, and not-uncommonly broken war machine who's squishier bits scream for my help when they go squish. You look like a soldier." --Dr. Bunningus, Schlock Mercenary

"You want to know how to write a good story? You take a group of interesting, likable, wonderful characters. And you turn their lives into Hell on Earth."
--Chris Claremont

“I have destroyed him with the weapons I abhorred, and they are his. We have crossed each other’s frontiers, we are the no-men of this no-man’s-land.” -- Smiley's People, by John le Carre
