Author has written 20 stories for Tenchi Muyo, Ranma, Anime X-overs, Naruto, Star Wars, and Oh My Goddess!.
Who am I?
I am a 40-something anime geek, PC gamer, fan fiction writer, senior moderator for the Gamers Bay Google Plus Community, and the host of the Youtube Channel Zorch Central. I have also partnered with the Gamers Bay Channel.
When Did I Start Writing?
When it came to writing stories I began at a very young age. For a time I stopped because there were not avenues made available for me to share my stories with others, and there were no creative writing classes in the schools I was attending. This was before the Internet. As for fanfiction, I began writing in 2001 originally on the Tenchi Muyo Fan Fiction Archive or TMFFA, and my first story was The Dark Lord of Jurai. I now write stories that are primarily based around Ranma 1/2 and Naruto.
What Else Do You Do?
I am the creator of a Youtube program made for Gamers Bay called Chloe & the Professor. The show uses discussions about gaming and the gaming industry as a springboard to talk about other important subjects such as politics, spirituality, and etc. In addition, I host a Let's Play series called "An Old Gamer Plays" on the Gamers Bay channel and will soon begin a show called "An Old Gamer Rants".
Why Did I Start Writing Fanfiction?
As a coping mechanism for Depression. At the time my family didn't understand what I was going through, and it had a devastating effect on my relationship with wife. Who is now my ex, but we're getting along better as just friends.
Do You Still Write?
Yes, though not as much as I prefer to. I want to change all of that in 2016 by getting at least one chapter out for a different story each month, and hopefully moving up to doing two more per month. That isn't working out so good, so I'll get them done when I get them done.
How Can I Get Updates on What Stories You're Working on Next?
Follow me here on Fanfiction.net, also follow me on Twitter @thezorch, and subscribe to my Youtube channel Zorch Central where I host the show Fanfiction Multiverse every week or so when there are updates.
Are You Discontinuing Any Stories?
Yes, I am. There are a few stories I've attempted to update without success. Since they were written during the time I was suffering from depression, they are representative of a vibration I am no longer in, and so I will not be continuing these stories in their current form. I may go back and rewrite them at some point. The following stories will not be getting any further updates...
What Are Your Long Term Goals on Fanfiction.net and Elsewhere?
I have plans to rewrite my first fanfic series using completely new ideas and a completely new lore I've developed over the years. Also, I have long term goals for the story Nindo of the Force, which has been outlined several books in advance beyond the Clone Wars Era. Lastly, the fanfic Beneath A Crimson Sky will become a published novel on Amazon Kindle. The story will center on a character named Ranma Takahashi who is turned into a vampire and joins the Order of the Crimson Circle to bring justice to the Shangshi vampires who murdered his family. It is my hope to have the book published by 2020.
When Are You Continuing WTF?
The story Something Hentai This Way Comes is going to go in a completely new direction. Originally, I was going to discontinue it and start a new story with a different name, but I liked this title so much I've decided to use it instead. So, at some point will be removing the current chapters and posting all new ones in the coming months. Please look forward to it showing up soon.
