"I am a gentlewoman and a scholar: I am an artist, animator, writer, reviewer, collector, philosopher, prattler, prancer, lecturer, and a loon: I am a polymath forced to live in an age full of specialists. I am nobody, for I am altogether just myself..."
Although I've avoided FF.net for years and years, the reason of why I joined really boils down to the fact that I'm primarily known as an (visual) artist on DeviantArt, but not as a writer. My writings, I feel, were dutifully (and sadly) ignored and avoided there, ergo I'm experimenting with this site to gain further recognition and attain a larger audience for my literary work; to improve my writing style through practice and control; to attest that good fan-written stories, indeed, can exist and do exist, if you look in the right places, with intelligently written plotlines and intricately complex characters, along with proper grammar and correct spelling; to demonstrate that fan-written stories can be considered true literature and, as a result, literature is (in reality) an art form; to provide something unusual and unique, something atypical and unexpected, to the reader whom is searching for something outside the realm of the general palette of the "conventional" fan; and to bare witness that canon is king, for I'm one of the few and the proud true canonists left on this universe, that it is neither hinders or hampers: To me, it takes more creative effort and more cerebral effort, to be able to think outside the sandbox rather than break the sandbox, by being faithful and respectful to the source material (ie: its stories, its characters, etc), by expanding upon it rather than altering it into something it is not.
Consequently, I consider myself a writer of "pastiche" (which is the scholastic term) rather than "fanfiction." See my ranter's essay of A WRITER'S MELTDOWN: A HOPELESS OUTLOOK ON FANDOM that detail my creative process and reasons why I consider myself an "unconventional" writer for the "unconventional" fan. Critiques, reviews, and comments are always welcomed and enjoyed. I do my best to answer everyone because I am always appreciative of anything I receive. Thank you.

WORKS-IN-PROGRESS (updated 27 November 2015):
Written in conjunction with my friend Lady Jekyll, based on the 2010 reboot of Nightmare on Elm Street by Platinum Dunes, along with numerous references to the Robert Englund franchise, it details the life and times of Freddy Krueger, a gardener at a suburban preschool discovered to be a serial paedophile, before his "death" by the hands of the parents of Springwood.
• 30% - Chapter VIII: "Speak of the Devil (and He Doth Appear)" — Forty-five years ago, Sister Mary Helena (Amanda Krueger) works at East Wing Tower of St. Dymphna's Psychiatric Hospital (before events made it into a Catholic school), which housed the most violent and dangerous wards.
Written in conjunction with my friend Lady Jekyll, six months following the alien invasion of New York, Bruce Banner, better known as "the Incredible Hulk," the newly hired top technician for the Department of Research and Development at Stark Tower, plays peace-maker between Tony Stark, his new best friend, and Pepper Potts, his new employer, after their messy break-up and starts to find himself in the middle of an emotional situation beyond his control.
• 0% - Chapter III: "Her Name Was Betty" — Bruce Banner reveals his past to Pepper Potts, specifically on the woman he had to push away. Postponed until after the May release of Iron Man 3 (2013) to ensure the pastiche stays to Marvel film canon.
An oh-so-cute-oh-so-sweet-that-it-will-give-you-cavities story inspired by the popular animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Derpy Hooves, the wall-eyed mail-mare from Cloudsdale, befriends Ponyville's newest residence, an eccentric clock-maker and inventor from Lonmane named Doctor Whooves, and is taken by surprise when a simple friendship ultimately transforms into a not-so-simple romance.
• 5% - Chapter IV: "English Tea and Muffins" — On the morning after the "Welcome to Ponyville" party at the Old Clock Tower, the curious mail-mare gets to know more about the mysterious clock-maker over a breakfast plate of tea and muffins.
An revised edition of my (then-famous) pastiche previously entitled Outwitted Again?, Sherringford Basil receives a visit from an old adversary from his past, Mademoiselle Irene Relda, better known as "the Woman," who was the first (and only) woman who had ever beaten him, and matches wits with the great detective again, not as an enemy, but as a client.
• 20% - Chapter VII: "Check to Queen" — Basil and Dawson "unveil" the intentions of their duplicitous client.
Directly after their whirlwind marriage, two weeks following the signing of the Treaty of Troyes, King Henry V of England and Katharine (Catherine) of Valois, daughter of the King of France, have only a few hours together in their bridal chamber before he leaves to resume his war campaigns (based on The Hollow Crown: Henry IV and Henry V BBC miniseries, starring Tom Hiddleston).
• 50% - Act III: "Ne'er Was One Kinder So Cruelly Wrong'd"
• 70% - HUMAN TARGET: MY WORLD — Following the events of the episode "Marshall Pucci," after he blows up his precious Eldo, Guerrero returns home and reflects upon "my world."
