Author has written 7 stories for F.E.A.R., Dead Space, StarCraft, Zeno Clash, Don't Starve, and Darkest Dungeon.
I first signed up for this site seven years ago.
It's funny thinking about how different I was back then (as a brief comparison between the tone of my oldest story with that of my newest will attest). I was in high school when I joined - now I have two university degrees and a job. What hasn't changed, however, is that I enjoy writing: it's why I came here in the first place. And one of the advantages of fan fiction is that there are no expectations here: to write fan fiction is to write for the sake and the mere pleasure of writing, without the need to conform to any standards but your own. There is a certain freedom in that - one absent from other forms of writing. It's why I've stayed.
I originally got into fan fiction (first got into writing, in point of fact) when I read the collected Diablo works of Steve "The Boojum" Dong on his website ten years ago. His stories showed me that fan fiction could be fun and engaging - and, importantly, genuine and sincere. It's a philosophy I have taken to heart, and I credit him for getting me started as a writer.
I do also write original fiction, by the way! If you want to read other things I've written, you should consider following my writing blog! This website does not allow me to post a URL here, but if you Google "Falk's Labyrinth", it should be the first hit. I post original short stories there every so often.
