Author has written 4 stories for Final Fantasy VIII, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Vampire Diaries.

Update, 4th of April 2014

Like most people I watch a lot of television (though nowhere near as much as my little sister) and I have a pretty varied palate. I'm quite a fan of the sitcoms, coming across from the US of A, specifically How I Met Your Mother, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and the Big Bang Theory (I can empathise with Sheldon). I also really enjoyed Homeland until it lost it in Season 3. I also watch institutions of British Television like Top Gear, Mock the Week and the Bill. While we're at it, if someone doesn't bring the Bill back soon I will hunt the executives at ITV down with a blow lamp and a selection of dentists tools. I'm not a big fan of the vampire genre with a couple of exceptions. One of these exceptions is the Vampire Diaries for a number of reasons. I'm not going to lie, tow of the reasons are the simply delicious Candice Accola and Nina Dobrev (bad man, I'm a bad, bad man) but take a look at the cast as a whole. They are all incredibly talented without exception and if you ask me the standout performances were Michael Trevino (Tyler Lockwood), Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman) and Joseph Morgan (Niklaus Mikaelson). While we're at it, I loved the werewolves in that show, especially when compared to the were-anorexic stick insect in the Harry Potter films and the were-gorilla from hell in Buffy. Many people like to compare Nina Dobrev and Kisten Stewart and debate who is better. Let me put it this way. Nina Dobrev wins hands down because she has not got the emotional range of a Styrofoam cup or the brains of a Kardashian (and I'm not talking about the genius that got O.J. off). That should be and end to it.

While we're at I don't have a lot of time for True Blood either. I gave it a fair chance, just as I did with Twilight but I couldn't get into it for some reason and I can't say I'm particuarly sorry. If I wanted to see Anna Paquin in varying states of nudity I'd search on the internet. It's just porn and okay, maybe we don't have to pay for it but I'm fairly confident I could find a free porn site out there if I was so inclined. I do recognise that the bloodsucker genre is incredibly popular and I don't see it going away anytime soon but if you actually stop and think about it you'll realise whose shoulders the credit falls around. I don't think I'm going to meet many Anne Rice fans on this site for obvious reasons so allow me to give you two words that everyone who knows their bloodsucker lore will recognise instantly; Joss Whedon! That man is a genius (my sister thinks I have a man crush, she may be right) and the way I see it he started out the whole vampire transformation from Christoper Lee and Gary Oldman's portrayals of Dracula to very attractive brooding people. The careers of David Boreanaz, James Marsters, Juile Benz, Juliet Landau, Robert Pattinson, Stephen Moyer, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and many many more have a lot to thank Whedon and his modern masterpieces Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Angel for. While we're at it, one of these days I will lay siege to Fox headquarters until they bring back Firefly.

The S.A.S. Nightclub Theory

For those of you who don't know, the S.A.S. stands for the British Army 22 Regiment the Special Air Services, who are our Special Forces, the rough equivalent of the Delta Force outfit in the states and arguably the best fighting force on the planet. Due to the stringent selection process the regiment only numbers in the hundreds and they are divided into four different squadrons, A, B, D and G.

According to Sergeant Andy McNab each of the squadrons have their own personalities and the best way to get a handle on them is to go out to a nightclub with them. A Squadron would stand along the back wall, not saying a word even to each other and giving everyone the evil eye. B Squadron would sit in a corner all night talking amongst themselves. D Squadron would stand on the edge of the dance floor looking at all the women. G Squadron would be the ones out on the floor making total idiots out of themselves.

I'm in G Squadron.
