Author has written 8 stories for Halo, Left 4 Dead, RuneScape, and Homestuck.
My name is Connor.
Creative self-expression could be said to be a major theme of my current life. I am attending West Chester University with a degree in Theatre. Acting and Writing are my two biggest passions. The beauty stems from the fact that any progress I make in one of these fields automatically progresses me within the other. As my writing style improves, so too does my ability to create a character from someone else's text. The reverse is true, as well - my experience with creating characters from text helps me to peg down my own characters' voices in my writing.
I have been writing on this website since 2009. I am a self-taught writer - the stories I write here are my classrooms. My earlier stories are cruder, less refined than my later ones. There are some bits within my earlier stories that make me laugh and cringe when I read them. I am not ashamed of this, however - these early, clunky, 'bad' stories are what got my writing style to where it is today.
I personally find it enjoyable to compare my earlier stories to my later ones. It helps me see how my style is evolving, as well as what I still need to work on.
Ashes to Ashes, Grist to Grist
This is a Homestuck fanfiction that follows the story of eight teenagers who play Sburb, a futuristic game that causes the end of the world. This project has been ongoing for over two years. It is one of my greatest classrooms.
Reclamation, Restoration, Redemption
This is a Halo fanfiction that follows the story of several Sangheili (Elites - a legionary footsoldier, a shipmaster, and a councilor) who participated in the Human-Covenant War. This project is currently on hold. I do not anticipate working on it very much while I am focusing on Ashes to Ashes, Grist to Grist. When I finish Ashes and Grist, however, I may return to this project. There is potential here, and I am reluctant to close this particular door. I also very much appreciate the support I have received from the Halo fanbase active on this site, and am rather eager to rejoin them soon.
The God Wars
This is a Runescape fanfiction that follows the story of a handful of individuals who played key roles in ending the bloodiest (and longest) war in the history of Gielinor. This was a classroom in which I sought to refine my usage of rotating perspectives - a style I first used in Survivors of Gamma Company. I have not updated this story in a long time. I anticipate returning to this after I complete Ashes to Ashes, Grist to Grist.
