Author has written 98 stories for Happy Tree Friends, Stoked, Peanuts, Total Drama series, Hunger Games, Big Bang Theory, Ed, Edd n Eddy, American Horror Story, and Night Shift, 2014.
Waddup?! Welcome to the gateway into my own personal, sinister false-utopia, from where you can never return! Whatever the reason you have stumbled upon my profile page, make yourself at home!
I am a 22-year-old man living in Ireland. And no, I have never seen a leprechaun in my life. I don't believe they exist anyway. I have not been active for almost two years now. Mostly because college was causing me a lot of stress, and since graduating I've been busy with other things. When I was active, I wrote almost exclusively for Total Drama. At the start, I wrote quite a few stories for Happy Tree Friends, but I stopped doing so around 2012. Occasionally I experimented with other fandoms, but to no avail. Total Drama was where most of my success materialised, so that is where I spent most of my time whenever I was on this site.
I was informed of this website in 2010. At the time I was obsessed with Happy Tree Friends, and felt that the videos on YouTube were not enough to keep me satisfied - especially when the web show was undergoing a hiatus back then. After reading a myriad of fantastic stories on the fandom, I discovered a new hobby and started my own account. I started off with a HTF-Total Drama crossover, which was shit. As were many other fics I wrote at the time. Come to think of it, most of the stories I've written throughout the first two years I was on this site were crap. I was 16 when I joined, which is not an excuse, because there are a lot of amazing content on this site that were written by 13 year olds. But I had an inflated ego, a short attention span, and my writing skills were nowhere near as developed as they are now. Not that I regret those stories. Writing them helped to improve my writing, because of the feedback I received. As well as the feedback authors I liked received. So I kept typing. When I look back on them now - at least the ones I have not deleted - I realise how I different I was then compared to me in 2014.
Eventually around the middle of 2011, I started getting some attention on both the Total Drama and Happy Tree Friends sections, and I made a few friends on both fandoms. On the latter fandom it was because I was writing a few decent stories, while on Total Drama it was because I was writing Total Drama Yuri. Total Drama Yuri was a compilation story. Each chapter took two random female characters from Total Drama, and- you know what I'm talking about. TDY was the story that got me the most reviews and hits at the time, and my popularity grew because fics about female Total Drama characters munching carpets were rare at the time. If this was not the case, TDY would never have been the moderate success it was because it sucked. It sucked because each chapter was rushed out in an effort to get me lots of hits and reviews, and to convince myself that I was not gay. That last bit is another factor in why this story wasn't perfect. I understand a lot of readers loved it though, and even today I appreciate that. A year later I took it down. I deleted a lot of stories around the middle of 2012. Some stories that I regret deleting, but I cannot change the past now can I? But 2012 was just a bad year in terms of fan fiction writing, because I was under a lot of stress studying for my exams that were held in June that year. After the exams my laptop had to be sent for a repair and then I found myself bewildered by a lot of things. I also lost a lot of confidence in my writing. I abandoned the Happy Tree Friends fandom, and I have not been back since. When I started college, I focused on that and found myself addicted to social media, so I was absent from the site for a few months.
One day in November 2012 I decided to update a fic on the Total Drama fandom. This got the attention of I'll Cover Angel and Collins, who was hugely popular on the fandom (maybe she still is? She hasn't written anything since 2015, so I wouldn't know. Neither have I). She enjoyed that fic, messaged me with an idea for another fic and nudged me into writing it. I did, and I got more attention on the fandom from people who were either unfamiliar (or did not like) Total Drama Yuri. I'll Cover Angel of Collins came to me with more ideas, she supported me and we quickly became friends. With her support I wrote more stories, some her ideas, some my own. By the middle of 2013 I gained more readers and my writing improved. My confidence was back. I was also asked to participate in Total Drama Writer's Forum, so I joined it and brought ICAAC along with me. I made more friends, read more amazing stories from more talented authors, and the amount of reviews, hits and fans I've had increased substantially.
September 2013 came and that's when I created Unsuitable Suitors, which was a huge hit. It became my flagship, and it remains today as my most popular fic in terms of views, reviews and favourites. It is still my favourite fan fic so far, although I have neglected it since 2015. Speaking of which, my time on the Total Drama fandom peaked at around 2014. I had a lot of subscribers, a lot of stories, I was getting a lot of reviews and hits. Then came the autumn. I got a job. Well, not a job; an internship. An unpaid internship. I was doing it for college. I started in the summer, and it wasn't quite hectic. But around autumn I was given a project that took a lot of time and I was struggling with it. I spent less time on the forum and less time writing stories. Eventually I stopped going on the forum for two months. I returned to the forum, continued writing stories until February 2015. I had another hiatus. I went back to college, got bombarded with a lot of projects. About 15 of them. Summer came and I returned to the forum for the last time. Updated several more of my stories, published a handful of one-shots. Returned to college, had a massive final year project to work on. That's when I stopped altogether. Stopped going on the forum, stopped updating my stories. I continued to read some of my favourite stories now and again. But for the most part, I have not been active on this site since the middle of 2015.
Will I resume writing? I honestly cannot give a clear answer. I don't know what direction I am going to take. I've lost interest in Total Drama. ROTI was not great, All Stars was rubbish, Pahkitew Island was okay compared to All Stars, and Ridonculous Race was good but it added so many characters to the existing cast I was unable to keep track. As for trying out other fandoms, I'm not sure. There are great TV shows that I enjoy watching, but with these shows I am invested in the storylines, not the characters. What prompted me to write stories for Total Drama and Happy Tree Friends was the fact that I loved imagining the characters in different situations. That's not to say that I don't like the characters on the shows I'm watching, I love a lot of them. But I am not sure if I'd be interested in writing stories about them. I have written a story for the Night Shift, but let me tell you this: it was horrid. I don't know what was running through my head when I wrote this. This was meant to be a long story, but it's a one shot. For a good reason. But I might write something good for the fandom? Who knows? If I do, expect a lot of stories about Drew Allister.

Recommended Authors (and their fics)
The Total Drama fandom may be clogged with poorly-written SYOC fics, but there are lots of talented authors writing amazing fics, some of which will blow your minds. The Kobold Necromancer, Winter-Rae and TDI Charlie Brown are obvious recommendations, as they have written amazing fics, but we also have:
I'll Cover Angel and Collins: A close friend and one of the funniest writers in the fandom. She encouraged me to expand on some of my ideas and I became better known on the fandom mostly because of her. She has over 200 stories, most of them very funny. The story I recommend reading the most is Turns out they're not so famous, which is her most well-known. Other honorable mentions include Turns out they're not good parents, Dear Mom and Dad, I'm not that fine! The host has lost his mind!, and armfuls of Chrisney fics and hilarious one-shots. Speaking of which, if you love Chrisney, you'll love hanging out with her. She used to write for Teen Titans, KND, RENT and Pokémon as well.
Knifez: Probably one of the most talented authors on the fandom. This guy has a lot of dedication in his bone, and I see a lot of potential in him. Definitely check out Total Drama Chaos! and Despair Island. Both are competition based. The former is awesome and has all the characters from the first two casts participating. It's a few chapters away from finishing up. The latter is the first season with a darker, more tragic twist. If your not into competition fics, Will to Live is a good read if you're into zombies. If you love Noah, Dawn, Jasmine and Shawn, you and him might get along just fine.
GreenPokeGuy: One of the nicest people on the forum. Very welcoming, kind and rarely gets angry. My favourite story from him is Lost, where Duncan and Zoey are written perfectly. If you love Frozen, you might also like Ice Cold, co-written with I'll cover Angel and Collins. Also loves Codette, Zuncan, Dott, Geoffcan, Duncott, Christopher and Scoterra.
JShark419: Sound, chill and very funny. He's written some of the most bizarre stories on the site. 9 Dates has among the best depictions of Psycho Trent. Pain in the Neck has Chrisney and a dab of OOC Gwen. If you're a fan of Shazmine and Nawn, you might like Cruising for a Bruising.
I could go on, but my profile is long enough as it is. But the authors I have mentioned might have some recommendations as well.
TV Shows: Total Drama, Game of Thrones, South Park, Archer, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Night Shift (2014), Arrested Development, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Born Survivor: Bear Grylls, Community, Peep Show, Rick and Morty, Trailer Park Boys, F is for Family and Father Ted. I grew up on shows like Ed, Edd n' Eddy, the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Dexter's Laboratory, the Loony Tunes, the Simpsons, original Teen Titans and the earlier seasons of Family Guy, Spongebob Squarepants and Fairly Odd Parents.
Movies: I enjoyed the Lord of the Rings trilogy (I love you Gollum you sexy beast), Scary Movie 1, 2, 3 and 4 (but not 5), Se7en, American Beauty, Sausage Party, Death at a Funeral (the British one - the American one is hilarious, but I find the British one superior), Let's Be Cops, Deadpool, Arrival, the Accountant and several more. I like watching superhero movies like the X-Men and Batman franchises but I'm not a devoted fan. I like action, thriller, comedy (preferably dark or cynical) and adventure movies.
Music: I listen to a lot of artists, but my favourites are Children of Bodom, Ill Nino, Rammstein, System of a Down and Linkin Park. I mostly listen to rock and metal music, but I also like Eurodance, hip hop, house, dance and traditional music.
Gaming Franchises: Although I have a PS4 I'm only a casual gamer. I like playing Just Cause 3, Titanfall 2 and Call of Duty games, but I don't play them much. I'm also nostalgic about 007: Nightfire, XIII, Sonic Heroes and Simpsons Hit n' Run and would like to play them again.
YouTubers: I Hate Everything, GradeA UnderA, YourMovieSucks, Big Dicko, a Dose of Buckley and Teh Lurd of Teh Reings.
Hobbies: I tend to be lazy in my spare time, but I love hiking in the woods, visiting cities nearby, going to the gym, weightlifting, using the trampoline, going to waterparks and traveling the world (whenever I can). I'm into technology, travel and food. Especially food. I love me some pork, potatoes, beer, chicken and so on. Then for desert I love pastries, ice cream and chocolate (especially mint and hazelnut chocolate). Before I start reminding you guys of Owen, I'll add that I also like going on the internet, especially on YouTube. I also like to go on TV Tropes.
TV Shows: I used to be a huge fan of Family Guy. Then the writing went downhill, the jokes became unfunny, the storylines became rushed and the characters became unlikable. The first six seasons are good though, but after that I started to lose interest and I gave up after the 9th season. I loved the Murder House and Asylum seasons of American Horror Story, but the rest of the show was just too poorly written and too camp for my tastes. I also don't like Glee (in fact, I don't like anything by Ryan Murphy). Did I mention enjoying the first few seasons of SpongeBob and Fairly Odd Parents? Yeah, I'm not into their later seasons. If you like these shows, good for you. I just don't find these shows appealing.
Music: Not into hipster or diva music. Can't stand those genres.
Characters I Love (outside of Total Drama)
Ed, Edd n' Eddy: Ed. He's a nutcase, but in a good way. One of the funniest characters in the history of television. Rolf is also hilarious because of how weird his culture is, and Jonny is just so creepy it's hysterical. I like all the characters, except for Sarah, Jimmy and Kevin.
Game of Thrones: Tyrion Lannister. He's hilarious, witty and almost like Noah in every shape and form (except Noah is taller). I hated Jaime Lannister at first, but he grew on me. The fact that I find him sympathetic is noteworthy considering this is a guy who pushed a kid out of a window after he fucked his sister. Arya Stark is awesome, as is the Hound. Jon Snow, Sansa Stark, Ygritte, Peter Baelish, Loras Tyrell, Varys, Hodor, Bran Stark and Brienne of Tarth are awesome as well. As I support House Targaryen, I love Daenerys. I know I should hate Ramsay Bolton because he's a ruthless psychopath, but sadly, I love him because of those traits. Kinda like how I love Psycho Trent. Keep in mind that I do not condone his actions, in case you were wondering. I also have a love-hate relationship with Tywin Lannister; love him because he's sane, wise and badass, hate him because of his cruelty towards Tyrion.
The Night Shift: I like most of the characters, but my favourite has to be Drew. Military man, into martial arts, likes to fool around, an excellent medic... plus he's hot. Paul is hilarious when he's being awkward. Topher has his awkward moments as well, but he's better at handling them than Paul, which is a nice contrast. And TC, Jordan and Ragosa are all no-nonsense characters, which I like as well.
Characters I Hate (outside of Total Drama)
Ed, Edd n' Eddy: Sarah because she abuses Ed both physically and emotionally and her parents outright side with her, effectively abusing Ed as well. I hate Jimmy simply for being Sarah's dragon (and for being a little bitch as well). Kevin is the worst. He treats everyone like shit, sometimes for no reason whatsoever, and yet he get's away with it.
Family Guy: Brian Griffin. Once was my favourite character on the show (when I actually liked it). Then he became a bigot towards people who aren't atheists or liberals, sold out his beliefs (first to publish his novel, then because he just wants to oppose the government), treated Stewie like crap and tried to prevent Stewie from reporting his abusive day care teacher just because she was hot. Brian died, then came back to life. Only to take advantage of his son's career and give Stewie - who brought him back from the dead - and Chris herpes. For no good reason. Lois is a hypocrite and a bitch, Peter is an annoying, unfunny wankshaft, and most of the characters are dickheads. Stewie is the only character I still like, but he was way better in the earlier seasons when he was an evil genius. Now he's just gay.
Game of Thrones: Spoiler alert: the crazies who have taken over Kings Landing in Season 5. Seriously, they've managed to force me to sympathise with Cersei Lannister. And I hate Cersei. I also hate Joffrey Baratheon. That little shit. I hope to never see the Freys again. Finally, Stannis Baratheon was awesome, and I still don't hate him, but he's spiralled downhill in the last two episodes of Season 5.
Spongebob Squarepants: Patrick. He's a prick. He knows he's stupid, so every crime he commits, he does it on purpose. And get's away with it. Mr Krabs is a greedy, selfish asshole who abuses his employees, and has recently abused Plankton for no good reason. I liked them in the earlier seasons, when Mr Krabs was not as greedy and actually got his comeuppances, and Patrick was genuinely stupid but lovable.
My Fan Fiction Pet Peeves
SYOC fics in general: Not all of them. Some authors can do them well. Just most of them are terrible. I get that most Total Drama fans want to be on the show, but if you want your story to be a success, it has to have the characters from the franchise included. Why do you think we read fan fiction anyway? If you're going to do an SYOC story, take sure the non-OCs play important roles in your story and contribute as much as - if not more than - the OCs to the plot. And don't have the story listed as being about Chris or Chef unless they are genuinely going to be the main characters of the fic. As a Chef fan, it's annoying having to go through all these SYOC fics just to find a story to read that is actually about Chef.
"Don't Like Don't Read": Of course I'm not going to read a story if I don't like it. If you're trying to deter trolls, well, they're going to troll anyway. Including this phrase in your summary will only encourage them.
"I suck at summaries": Nobody cares.
Gary-Stus/Mary-Sues: They're boring at best; annoying at worst. An interesting character has both good and bad qualities, and a lot of depth. Having your character be good at everything is predictable, and frankly, it's lazy.
Truth or Dare fics in general: They can be done right. But if all the characters are doing is taking dares sent in from reviewers, then it's not funny. If you're going to write a truth or dare fic, show the characters' reactions to the dares and truths, depict some of them trying to resist and have a few entertaining storylines to keep people coming back. Accept dares from PMs as well, because if you accept them from reviews, your fic will be classed as 'interactive' and your story can be taken down.
Holding stories ransom for more reviews: Fair enough. Your story sucked anyway.
Text speech: Remember the 2000s decade when mobile phones had these 12-button keypads? Well I doubt you're using them to write your stories. If you are, then you are determined enough to write properly. So no excuses.
Giant walls of text: Can anyone humanly possibly read these things without getting frustrated? I can't.
Voters Decide stories in general: It's not the concept, but the fact that there are too many of them. Again, where the shit did the originality go?! What's worse is when the author just lists the characters that are left rather than putting in a story. Talk about lazy!
M-PREG: Let's think logically here for a second people. Men CANNOT get pregnant. Not even men who are trans. Maybe a hermaphrodite with Y chromosomes could get pregnant, but I highly doubt it. I understand that fan fiction does not have to represent reality, but try to be creative.
I'm SKINNY, so I MUST be anorexic.
Pairings I Love
AleJustin - Justin is vain and has very high standards when it comes to dating someone in terms of looks. Alejandro would probably meet his standards for good-looking, and also allow Justin to mooch off of him. Meanwhile, Alejandro can easily charm Justin into doing whatever he wants. I can see it happening.
Blizzy - At first, I supported it because it was bizarre. I thought only Izzy would be crazy enough to want to date Blaineley (and I still do). It was even one of my earliest ships. At first, I liked this pairing simply because I wanted to give Blaineley a stalker, just to mess her up. Then I realised that Blaineley might actually enjoy Izzy's company. Izzy would probably like the name Mildred, Blaineley would like to have control, but give some of it to Izzy as well, and then there's the whole bizarre nature of this pairing again.
Bref - Mostly because they're both military men, but I like to contrast Chef's hard and steely nature with Brick's mellow and friendly personality. It was even confirmed that Brick enjoys Chef's meals. This would be a bonus for Chef.
Brott - Scott was an asshole to Brick in their debut season, but Scott has reformed since then and it's not unlike Brick to give people a second chance. And a relationship between them would be hilarious.
Chefcan - They had one of the harshest conflicts on the show. And I happen to like foe-yay. I can easily write a fic where Chef and Duncan are enemies on the streets, but lovers in the sheets. Think of all that sexual tension!
Chef/DJ - I like this pairing because my own interpretations of these characters. I'll just leave it at that.
Chopher - Topher literally thinks he's the next Chris and has named his cat after Chef. Chef could easily rope him into an alliance for this reason. Maybe even into a relationship?
Chott - I know Chef was just as sadistic towards Scott as he was towards the rest of the cast, but... I have no idea why I like this pairing. I just do. Maybe it's their ruthless behaviour? Maybe it's the fact that they'd cook with anything? I dunno. Would be interesting to write fics about, though.
Chrisney - I blame I'll Cover Angel and Collins for this. At first, I thought it was the most outrageous pairing ever conceived due to the age gap. But it grew on me. Chris and Courtney both want fame, money and power. And they'd do anything to get it. Chris's irresponsible behaviour annoying Courtney and Courtney's whining annoying Chris provides a lot of humour. And by the way, I'm pretty sure Courtney never won any lawsuit she filed to get on TDA. She had to get around somewhere, right? She did get all those privileges that even a judge or the producers would find to be pushing it. And then there was Gwen being placed on the Villains in TDAS, just because she kissed Duncan when he was still dating Courtney. Yep! DEFINITELY something going on here.
Duncan/DJ - Contrast Duncan's tough criminal background with DJ's sweet, wholesome background and you've got some potential. They're kinda hot as well. As you can tell, I am one of those opposites-attract type of people.
Duncan/Noah - What I like best about this pairing is how dysfunctional it could get in some fics. Noah being an asshole to Duncan, Duncan being moody and all that... so much potential for a sitcom. I can see it now.
Duncott - It was not that scene where Duncan helped Scott up in TDAS. No. I just think that both Scott and Duncan would be good together.
Geoffcan - Duncan was disgusted by Gidgette's frequent PDSAs (public displays of sexual activity). Replace that disgust with envy, and I'd gladly write a fic where it all unravels from that point on.
Gidgette - Mostly when they are being perverted degenerates. Bridgette and Geoff are the biggest fictional sex-addicts I've ever come across.
Gwenney - One sided. I did not like how Courtney and Gwen went from being enemies to borderline lovers in TDAS (calling them heterosexual life-partners would be putting it too lightly). But with the way Gwen was so desperate to get Courtney to like her again in the beginning, and the way she felt betrayed by Courtney in the episode Courtney was eliminated in, something's gotta be up. In fact, I can no longer write a fic about Gwen without having her stalk Courtney and trying to get in Courtney's pants. The relationship is just too bizarre for me not to like.
Justowen - It's bound to happen someday. Owen isn't the type of person to relent for long.
Lightntt - Why not? Lightning was the only one in ROTI who did not think that Scott was a jerk, even though in ROTI, you could clearly see that from space. Surely, something is going on here.
Pairings I Dislike
Bawn - Any pairing involving B is going to be painful for me to write. In canon, you can argue that Dawn would be able to read B's thoughts and they'd agree on everything. But in real life, people would think Dawn is talking to herself, making her look like a weirdo in the process. Even if the pairing does work out, it would be boring to write or work with. And this goes for any B pairing. It can only be interesting if Dawn was taking advantage of his silence, and you know how wrong that is (though I guess I'd probably write that anyway).
Camerra - It's just another Coderra. Only worse. Not only is Cameron boring, that storyline in All Stars was an omen that Sierra had not learned any lesson. At least with Coderra both of the characters were interesting and there was no relationship like it on the show before that pairing. And I don't like Coderra either.
Chrisamy - Because I hate Amy, and I feel that she does not deserve any love.
Skave - To be honest, I was relieved that any chance Skave ever had at becoming an official couple was obliterated at the last second. The relationship felt forced. Furthermore, Sky mostly used Dave's emotions to get further in the game while having a boyfriend at home, who she never bothered to tell Dave about, and Dave was acting like he was entitled to have Sky.
Zoke - Honestly, I think Mike and Zoey would be better off if they never dated. It took up too much of Zoey's screentime, yet the whole purpose of that relationship is for Zoey to be Mike's trophy girlfriend. Why pair Zoey and Mike together when you can pair Zoey with Duncan or Scott, and Mike with Duncan or Anne Maria (or one of his other personalities)? I can only make that pairing work in a fan fic if it is Svetlana, Vito or Mal who Zoey truly wants. Come to think of it, every time Mike and Zoey get it on, Zoey is pretty much having an orgy with all of Mike's personalities. Which is weird. That's the only thing I find interesting about this couple.
