Author has written 4 stories for Mass Effect.


Name: Y'all don't need to know

Age: Old enough to have investments, young enough that I legally can't blow them for an awesome weekend in Vegas. (not that I ever would)

Location: USA. I have to go north to get to The South. If you can solve that riddle, then... well, you know where I am. Only intelligent stalkers, please XD

Gender: Male

Past Writing Experiences: I've written quite a bit in my life, both fiction and nonfiction. I've even been paid for it a few times XD. I wrote a novel once. It was good. Not great.

More Tidbits: Well, I'm an intellectual. Some would say that's a word that people with a high IQ and low motivation use to make themselves feel like they've accomplished something. And hey, they're probably right. I love to learn about stuff that matters, whether I have a natural propensity for it (writing, history, politics, psychology) or no ability whatsoever (math, physics, most sciences). I hate stupidity, and for that reason I hate most people I meet. (though if you've gotten as far as reading this I already like you ;D) My preferred genres are sci-fi, fantasy, and action/political thrillers. I don't shy away from dark or brutal stuff, but I hate unhappy endings. I will never write an unhappy ending unless I am artistically obligated to do so.

What else? I'm a registered republican and damned proud of it! If you're a liberal, you'd probably consider me a right-wing maniac. In truth, I'm somewhere in the classical liberal/libertarian side of things. I hate religion and I hate atheism. What does that make me? Hell if I know. I'm weird, but let's face it, normal people aren't worth your time. And I'm also ridiculously cheap. The only thing I hate more than stupidity is spending money.

Fanfiction, for me, is a way to deeper explore the characters and universes that leave strong impressions on me. I want to expand on what the original work gives me, I want to get inside the minds of great characters, channel them by writing them, let them become me for a little while. Sounding weird yet? Sorry. I do like OC fiction too, though usually not AU. I only write what I'm inspired to write. As of now, Mass Effect is the only thing inspiring me. In the future that may change, but... well, Mass Effect was what got me on this site in the first place, so something this good might never come along again.
