Author has written 5 stories for Final Fantasy VIII.

My full given name is Alastair Graeme Todd, but I have developed the habit of shortening it to Ally at all times, including on my exam papers which is a testament to my relaxed approach to academic achievement. I was born in 1990 in Scotland where I still live but beyond that I'm not going to tell you because I don't want MI6 finding me. I have worked in various positions before I landed on my occupation which is a full time writer. In addition to my own original works I write fanfic a lot, some might say too much. I focus religiously on one of the legendary Final Fantasy RPG's namely number eight. I have attempted forays into other 'verses (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, The Vampire Diaries and Smallville)with invariably messy results. I stay with FF8 because I feel simultaneously comfortable and challenged here. As for reviews of my handiwork, I enjoy ones full of compliments, I am pretty ambivalent towards flames and I love those containing constructive criticism.

I have tried one shots, but they never worked so I've resigned myself to the fact that it's just not in the cards for me. I'm much more suited to large multi-chapter fics that some people might call "epics". I'm trying to get better at writing action and romance and try to cut down on dialogue. Fair warning though, my fics do tend to contain violence, strong language, sexual content (though nothing to graphic. This is not Fifty Shades of Shite), torture, disturbing imagery and more besides. I have gathered in the past that some youngsters have read my material and although I'm happy about that all I ask is they tutor themselves in the art of internet history manipulation because I don't want angry dads turning up on my doorstep and attempting to kick my head in for corrupting their little darlings. Word of friendly advice, don't try it. I'm perfectly capable of defending myself and that is not a place you want to go with me. Think of yours truly as Jason Bourne, except younger, less pretty and Scottish. Now for something a lot cheerier than my threats of physical violence. I am a nice guy. Honest.

WORDS OF WISDOM

"What's this? Watching the telly while there's evil still afoot. That's not very industrious of you. I say we go out and kick a little demon ass. What? Can't go without your Buffy? Let's find her she is the Chosen One after all. Come on, Vampires rrr nasty! Let's *annihilate* them hor justice and the safety of puppies and Christmas right? Let's fight that evil! Let's kill something! Oh come on! --Spike, Buffy The Vampire Slayer

People in America say that obesity is a disease while homosexuality is a choice. No it isn't. If homosexuality is a choice it's not a very fair one. Do you think if I couldn't make myself gay I wouldn't do it and make my life ten time easier. As a heterosexual man I have to go out, talk to a girl and take anywhere between three minutes and six months to woo, seduce and charm said woman into bed with a variety of lies, deceits and untruths. It'll cost me a lot of time money and sanity but eventually she'll concede and you'll make love together but what you don't know is she's putting blinders on your head so you can't see hopes, dreams and ambitions going past you. Before you know it you're married with two kids and all your dreams are dead. Or you can hang out with your best friend all day and get blowjobs. What a difficult choice! --Daniel Sloss
