Author has written 9 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, and Pokémon.
Who is this man named Shade who calls himself a Lord?
He is an odd one. A writer, apparently. Regularly shifting through the digital world, searching for the Muse to help guide his author's hand, which is always holding a quill, might I add.
A writer, you say? Where does he hail from?
I heard in a passing rumor he lives on the western coast of those United States, right on the southern shores of California. Residing in some town near the sea. Anaheim, if I'm not mistaken.
But what of him? What have you heard of this Lord Shade? What sort is he?
As I said earlier, an odd one. Those few who have spoken to him would tell you he is prone to long stretches of silence, often accompanied with some interestingly random piece of writing. A flake, some would say. A mad man, others. A genius, a few. "Odd" seems to be the only adjetive the general consensus can agree upon. Be wary of him, less you be absorbed into the tempest that is his mind.
An eccentric, if there ever was one.
Indeed. I couldn't have put it bette-AAAH! My Lord! I did not see you standing there!
If you don't mind my asking, how long have you been standing there, my Lord...sir...*cough*...
Long enough to know that rumors spread much too fast for my liking. Now begone, less I let loose my flesh-eating platypus on the both of you!
Uhh...did you say..."flesh-eating platypus", my Lord...?
HIGGINS! RELEASE FLUFFY!

If God is willing to prevent evil, but unable, He is not omnipotent. If he is unwilling, but able, he is malevolent. If he is able and willing, whence cometh the evil? If he is neither able nor willing, why call him God? Oh, wait, I forgot. He's TESTING us. Riiight.
The following is an actual question given on a University of Washington engineering mid-term. The answer was so "profound" that the Professor shared it with colleagues, and the sharing obviously hasn't ceased...
Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or Endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Most of the students wrote Proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law, (gas cools off when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:
"First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let us look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially.
Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand as souls are added. This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.
2. Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.
So which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa Banyan during my Freshman year, "...that it will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you.", and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then, #2 cannot be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze."
This student received the only A.

A little about Lord Shade:
My authors notes are less notes and more the ramblings of a madman. Don't expect too many updates because I'm a lazy sonuvabith without a computer.
I am aware that I have more quotes that author's note. What can I say? I like reading quotes. My favorite ones are by Victor Borge, who was a brilliant composer with the best sense of humor that the world has ever had the fortune of seeing. I recommend that you go on YouTube and look him up. Here's a couple of links. Hilarious. The third one's my favorite.
But I'm also needy and need reviews to stop me from being depressed. So go review. Now. Seriously, stop reading this and review. NOW!
I was hanging out with my friend and we were talking about fanfiction and he said that he likes it when writers put something funny on the disclaimers. This is what I said to him:
"I hate disclaimers that say a show or book or anime or whatever belong to a certain person or a company. I don't think anybody really owns a good story. A good story belongs to everybody because it effects everyone differently. No one person can own something as powerful and influental as a good story."
To all those who doubt the wisdom of Lord Shade.
You should also know that the only thing that I hate more than lame flamers is shipping wars. I find them annoying and completely pointless. Just because I ship something different than you does not mean that I am evil. Neither does it mean that I am disrespecting your ships. I treat all ships with respect, even if I don't agree with them and I expect you to do the same.
It's official. The Lord Shade is gonna be an Uncle!!
It's official. The Lord Shade is gonna be an Uncle!!
My sister just announced that shes six weeks pregnant! We were at a party at my little brother's birthday party when my mother asked her why she wasn't drinking like everybody else. She said it was because she's pregnant. You should have heard the commotion that came afterwards. I swear, you would have thought she just announce she discovered the cure to cancer! So in a few months, I will be holding my baby nephew or niece.
I've talked to my sister, and even though they don't know what the sex of the baby is yet, they've already decided on possible names.
They've decided that if it's a boy, the name will probably by Dean Erin. Erin will be his middle name. She's always liked the name Dean, and Erin is the father's middle name.
And if it's a girl, then she'll be named Athena Marie. My sister wants to name her daughter after the Greek god of Wisdom and Truth. Some of the family don't really like the name Athena. I think Athena Marie is a very pretty name and look forward to meeting my niece/nephew in about 7-8 months.
My sister's ultrasound came in, and guess what? It's going to be a boy! Can you believe it?!
Right now, my sister's about 4 and a half months pregnant, so she's about half way there. My mom and her have been spending all there time finding and buying stuff for the baby.
And they still have to organize a baby shower. I'm not looking forward to that. Why, you ask? Because who do you think is gonna have to do all the heavy lifting when their setting everything up for the shower. My little brother, because I'll be hiding trying to avoid doing any actual work.
I'll see what I can do about putting some pictures of the ultrasound on the site.
Well, I’m in Hell.
Why, you ask? Because of my sister’s baby shower.
Seriously, to anyone who doesn’t already know, if somebody asks you to help them organize a baby shower, point in the opposite direction, and when they’re distracted, RUN LIKE HELL!!!
I’m not joking. It’s the deifinition of “pain in the ass”. Especially when your sister and mother ask for your opinion.
The following is especially important to all guys trapped in a similar predicament:
When they talk about decorating and what they should do, I just kinda just zone them out, nod my head, make agreeing noises and say things like “Sounds good” and “That’s nice”. I know you’re probably rolling your eyes right now, but seriously, it works. Heed my words, men. Ignoring them works.
I love my sister and I’m really excited about meeting my nephew, but if I have to go through this madness again, I’m gonna jump off a bridge.
REJOICE, MY FRIENDS! FOR ON THIS MOST GLORIOUS OF DAYS, AT 11:01 PM, OF NOVEMER 7, 2010, WEIGHING 7 POUNDS AND 10 OUNCES, AND 22 INCHES LONG, MY SISTER, ZEDINIA, GAVE BIRTH TO A BEAUTIFUL BABY BOY NAMED DEAN!
He is the most adorable baby ever. And I'm not just saying that because I'm his Uncle. He truly is the bost beautiful thing thing that I have ever seen. I don't think that I had ever been happier than on that day.
Unfortanetly, that happiness was short lived.
He was having trouble breathing when he was born, and was immediately taken to the Infant Intensive Care Unit. We had to wait almost all night before we got any news from the doctor. It was one of the longest nights of my life. I can only imagine how it must have felt for my sister, being seperated from her son like that. We were all terrified. I had never been more scared. That night I prayed for the first time in almost 3 years. But eventually, the doctor came in and informed us that Dean has been regulated and that he's fine.
My family and I left the hospital and went home. We were there for maybe 8 hours before we came back the next morning. We stayed optimistic and tried to remain hopeful, meanwhile trying to keep my sister in good spirits. I think my mom was the most scared of us all, besides my sister. It felt like an eternity before the doctor said that it was okay to see Dean. My sister couldn't see him yet because she hadn't fully recovered yet and couldn't risk moving.
It broke my heart to see him attached to all those tubes and wires. But my God, he was beautiful. I swear, when we spoke to him, he knew we were there. And he was feisty. He kept ripping the oxygen hose off his face! It was hilarious. No matter how much the nurses tried, little Dean would just pull it off. Even when the put special tape on, he would rip it off! They had to use a stronger tape that wouldn't hurt him taking off. I was already expecting great things from the little guy.
Another 12 hours passed before we heard from the doctor that Dean was going to be fine. There was a minor cut in his lung that will heal naturally over time, and within a week, he'll be perfectly healthy. It's not all that uncommon. He doesn't need the hose to help him breathe and he's even starting to eat a little.
It felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I felt close to tears. I wasn't able to see my sister and her baby the next day because I had to work. Knowing that Dean and my sister were going to be fine, I went to work the next day with a clear conscience. I was bugging my coworkers the entire day with pictures I took with my phone the entire day. Either they enjoyed hearing about little Dean or were to polite to tell me to shut up, I didn't really care. I was just happy that I would get to hold my nephew.
Every story I write is a monument to my nephew and his mother.

Favorite Television Shows:
I support most pairing, with few exceptions(slash). Infact, I find the more ridiculous the pairing, the more entertaining the fic. These are just a few of my favorites:
P O K E M O N
I've always been a pokeshipper(AshxMisty). From episode one, I've wanted these two together. However, I'm a realist and think it's very unlikely that there will ever be an episode where they will 'get together' despite the number of petitions that demand that they do.
A V A T A R : T H E -L A S T- A I R B E N D E R
Major supporter of Taang(TophxAang) . To me, they just look perfect together. Toph is the definition of bad-ass and Aang needs someone like Toph to push him to his limit. I can't get enough of this ship. RiaKitsuneYoukai has some of the best Taang fanart EVER! Check it out. I also like it because I don't really get Kataang(KataraxAang). During the final episode, I thought to myself Isn't she like three years older than him? cough pedophile cough
I like Zutara(ZukoxKatara), but it's more of a secondary shipping to me, but I do like it more than Maiko(MaixZuko), mostly because I like the whole 'opposites attract' element that you see in some fictional couples. That,and I think the idea of Katara bringing home a firebender to meet daddy is absolutely hilarious.
Smellershot(SmellerbeexLongshot) is definitely one of my favorite ships out there. Tell me these two wouldn't make a great couple.
There's not enough HakodaxUrsa fics.
N A R U T O
When it comes to Naruto, my favorite ship is NaruHina(NarutoxHinata). Whenever I watch an anime, I always end up rooting for the quiet kid too shy and afraid to admit his/her feelings for the person that they like. There's one in almost every anime. Think about it.
While on the topic of Naruto ships, I just gotta ask: Whats up with the NarutoxSasuke fanfics? No disrespect to slash authors and readers and I'm not going to flame all slash fics, I'm just saying that I don't get it. Can't two guys just be buddies or enemies and NOT be gay? The same goes for Harry Potter and Lucious Malfoy, Sam and Dean Winchester, and Zuko and Sokka. Just sayin'...
I also like GaaHina(GaaraxHinata) because,like I said earlier, I like the 'opposites attract' elements in couples and these two so incredibly opposite, it's not even funny. It's hard to find a good GaaHina fic that isn't OOC, though. But I guess they have to be a little OOC for this couple to work. There are few things better in life than a good crack pairing. You can quote me on that.

Just because you were born in '97 doesn't mean you're a 90's kid. It's not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it. You're a 90's kid if you remember:

A mother passing by her daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, "Mom." With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:
Dear Mom: It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new boyfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you. I've been finding real passion with Ahmed and he is so nice-even with all his piercings, tattoos, beard, and his motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion Mom, I'm pregnant and Ahmed said that we will be very happy. He already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. He wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too. Ahmed taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us and trading it with his friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Ahmed can get better; he sure deserves it!! Don't worry Mom, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grand children.
Your daughter, Judith
PS: Mom, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk center drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home.
