Author has written 6 stories for Godzilla, Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Disney.
Hello all, and welcome to my profile. I've been here for a while, mostly just reading and reviewing other peoples' work. I'm working on a few different projects right now and have plans for many others, so I would appreciate any feedback that can be offered. So, if you wish to know about me...
Name: Secret. Pay attention, and one day I might reveal it. For now just call me by my Pen-name; Ivo-goji. Or by my deviantART screen name, Egg-Zilla.
Meaning behind Screen-name: I chose the odd sounding screen-name "Ivo-goji" both in reference to my deviantART name, and my two favorite fictional characters: Doctor Eggman and Godzilla. As a contraction of the two names (Egg-Zilla) was apparently already taken here, I decided to instead use their "real" names, Ivo Robotnik and Gojira. Any true fan of the SEGA Eggman calls him Ivo, while Goji is a common pet-name for Godzilla among the Kaiju fandom.
Age: All you need to know is that I am with in the 13-120 age range. I will get older eventually, so why bother listing it?
Religious beliefs: Though I think it's best left you don't worry about it, and if you feel that you would rather not know, go on and skip this part. I believe Jesus Christ is my savior, and I love and respect him. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and hold strongly to it's teachings and doctrines. If you wish to know more, visit the Church website, or PM me and I'd be glad to share my faith.
Interests: Writing fanfiction, playing video games, reading fanfiction, pulp fiction and 'scientific romance' or in other words pre-space opera science fiction, fantasy fiction, Celtic literature and poetry (especially Arthurian material and the histories of related figures), giant monster cinema, Disney comics and animation, collecting knives and swords, collecting coins, camping and hiking, kite flying and construction, traditonal drawing though also leaning towards abstract art these days, occasionally I also write poetry.
Fandoms of choice: Godzilla, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, and the DCAU. Others of course, but primarily these. I've also been obsessed with Pokemon as of late (and the obsession is growing!), particularly the anime and movies, despite past preferences for the game continuity exclusively.
Personal quotes:"Brood away! Your misery is but delicious ice cream that I shall enjoy, and the suffering you bring to others in your vengeance will be the sprinkles and whipped topping on that ice cream. THE SPRINKLES OF YOUR DOOM!!"

"This is Tokyo, once a city of 6 million people. What has happened here was caused by a force which up until a few days ago was entirely beyond the scope of man's imagination.

That would mean it's not so strong- that is to say, I wouldn't know about the strength of- What the hell am I saying?"- Ayase Yue, Mahou Sensei Negima!
"Is this some kind of quack call?" I remember Krisel (foolishly) asking. It took a bit of persuasion, as he was reluctant to add another duck to the Disney stable of superstars. But I told him that my hardball haranguing of horrendous hoods would catapult me to that coveted canardian point of culmination! He said, "What?"

Godzilla- who else?
Anguirus- my second favorite giant monster. Everyone loves the underdog!
Mothra- elegant yet powerful. Probably the kaiju with the richest backstory and personality.
Dr. Eggman- Well, this one is obvious. Dr. Ivo Robotnik is probably my favorite fictional character on the whole. I pretty well like every incarnation of Robotnik across the many different versions of the Sonic universe, though my favorite is unquestionably the original.
Knuckles the Echidna- Superstrong tunneling dude who lives on an island in the sky, sworn to protect a giant mystical gem that holds the fate of the universe, as the last relic of his ancient race. How awesome is that? Plus, he can glide around on his hair.
Sonic the Hedgehog- Poor Sonic seems really under appreciated, for the star of his video game series. And he's so cool too!
E-102 Gamma- My vote for the most developed character in the Sonic franchise; certainly the one with the most tragic and moving story, and that's a title with more than a few hard contenders. Even if he was only really himself for one game, that single appearance was unforgettable.
Vector the Crocodile- Gosh, I love this guy! Probably the most 'realistic' Sonic character, or at least the easiest for an ordinary person to relate to. He has terrible breath, listens to music 24/7, and is always late to pay the rent. We're all Vector the Crocodile sometimes.
Amy Rose- Unsurpassed optimism and determination in the face of any challenge, fueled by a passionate heart burning with fire that can't be put out. That, and a really big hammer, can take on the whole world without fear.
Big the Cat- This guy gets it even worse than Sonic. People just loath him. Yet he really does embody the spirit of everything Sonic, aside from being so slow. He's laid back and takes everything easy, keeps to himself and enjoy the simple things in life.
$crooge McDuck- So awesome he's managed to surpass the popularity of his nephew Donald is some countries and so wealthy you can't spell his name without a dollar sign. $crooge is in many ways the measuring stick by which I judge other fictional characters. The picture of The Richest Duck in the World drawn up from his appearances in media ranging from comic books to video games is a very complete one; you can ask almost any question about $crooge McDuck's personality, views, goals, etc. and get a straight answer from SOMEWHERE in the corpus of Disney Duck stories. That's how well developed he is, and that is the kind of depth I look for in characters from other settings.
Kusanagi Motoko- Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite franchises, and the Major might be my favorite female protagonist. She's very captivating, deep, intelligent, capable, and admirable. She's the best at what she does, yet her team does more than just make her look like a good leader. She pushes the limits of what defines a human being both physically and psychologically, yet she never forsakes her own humanity. She does unbelievable things, yet remains very relatable. Of course it can't be forgotten that the Major is an anti-hero; she does a lot of morally questionable things in the name of justice. Still, she is never motivated by self-interest or personal vendettas, but rather by a desire to do what is necessary for the greater good, even when the price is high. I think what makes Motoko most interesting though is her role as an explorer, a pioneer on the frontiers of human experience, seeing and becoming things that have never been imagined before.
Bruce Wayne- The DCAU interpretation of the Batman is the best in my opinion, at least when it comes to capturing how he was depicted in the Golden Age of comics, and not just stylistically. What the creators of the Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and Justice League got right that I feel most other interpretations of the character don't really nail down is that Batman is motivated first and foremost by compassion. In many of Batman's other appearances, it seems like his main drive is pure revenge. Yes, there is an element of vengeance, that is the primal force ultimately responsible for Bruce Wayne's transformation into the Dark Knight, but the real reason he goes out every night to risk his life is out of love for his fellow man. Batman was born from tragedy, but Batman lives to prevent tragedy.
Ash Ketchum- Another protagonist who doesn't get enough love from fans of his franchise. If they ain't hating on him then they turn him into something he's not in their fanfics. People should appreciate Ash for who he is, because he's pretty cool. He's also another character where I feel fans overemphasize the less significant parts of his personality and forget what is really important to what makes him tick: compassion. Too many fans seem to groan endlessly over his performance in meaningless tournament arcs when Ash saves someone's life, helps a person fulfill their dreams, or touches another soul with his big heart nearly every episode. How can a tournament victory compare to that?
The Narrator- From Space Dandy, that is. Everything he says is hilarious! The narrator is pretty much the reason I started watching the show. Also, he's god.
Ayase Yue- By far my favorite Negima! girl. She's very intelligent and philosophical, in a way that is unique among the many child genius that appear in fiction; she has a charm that is all her own. Yue's voice in the story adds meaningful perspective to all the fantastic situations and romantic entanglements that befall the 3-A crew, who often take the bizarre setting for granted. And she's really, really cute. Seriously, her default expression is Swadloon's face. Swadloon are adorable.
Tatsumiya Mana- Exotically beautiful, dangerously skilled with her IMI Desert Eagles and other high caliber firearms, as well as a stone cold badass among the already badass cast of Negima!, Mana is just plain cool.
Various personality quiz results:

Which Sonic Character are you most like?
You're Eggman! Now why the hell would they call you that? Oh well. You're a gentleman, you're ridiculously smart, and you can invent basically anything. Why wouldn't any woman NOT love you?

Fanfiction personality type:
Everything is possible, nothing is ever really over.
Fanfiction is a creative outlet for you. You don't intentionally write it, it just happens. You find inspiration in several fandoms, but are not obsessed with only one.
You like to explore "what if" situations. What if this character had never made this very choice? What if this event had taken place sooner, never, elsewhere? What if these people had never met?
You are likely to write Alternative Universes, fan seasons or sequels and just follow your (sometimes pretty strange) plot bunnies
Current Works in Progress:
The Child of the Desert has been put on a (hopefully) temporary haitus.
Ripple Effect is the my main priority at this time. It is in the same continuity as Other Voices, something that will become more apparent later on down the road. The next chapter will bring in Amy and reveal what happened to that officier at the end of the first chapter. This story is also being posted on the Chao Island website forum somewhat in advance of its updates here, along with other items relating to it. So far this is shaping up to be my longest project.
Finding Home is my most recent story, my take on how Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse became friends, set in the Disney comics universe. It will be fairly short, and in part is an effort to see how quickly I can crank out a satisfying multi-chapter fic, since it takes so long for me to update any of my work. I'm also testing the waters to see how well a story like this can do in the Disney category, to decide if I want to post anything over there in the future. After I'm finished with Finding Home- and that shouldn't take very long if I can keep up steam with my writing- I'm moving on to more science fiction stories, with plans for a short Godzilla fic and possibly a follow up to Fractured Memories. Of course I intend to post the next chapter of Ripple Effect as soon as I can, and I'm already itching to get that story on the ball again.
I'm making a commitment to update more frequently from now on, and trying to stave off writers block as much as possible by working on something everyday, even if it's just brief vignettes.
