Author has written 4 stories for Mega Man.

Hello, all. I'm a 27-year-old illustrator and I love fan fiction. I enjoy writing, though I prefer co-authoring stories rather than flat-out writing solo. I end up doodling when I try doing that. I'm a college graduate who, like so many others, is having trouble finding a real career in the current economy. My biggest hobby is drawing and I enjoy video games. I am the leader of a decent-sized guild on WoW, and managing it consumes far more time than one would think.

If you wrote a review and it's not responded to, please understand that my schedule is very demanding most weeks and honestly, if I can't think of something worthwhile to say, I don't say anything at all. My co-authors and I read every review that is submitted. If you have a question that you really, really want answered, please send a PM. I'm much better about getting back to those.

I hope you enjoy the stories I post here, long though some of them may be, and I hope that if nothing else, it encourages others to pick up a pen and write.

This quote is a tidbit provided by my journalism professor in college. It's attributed to Wilson Follett:

"Wherever we can make twenty-five words do the work of fifty, we halve the area in which looseness and disorganization can flourish, and by reducing the span of attention required we increase the force of the thought. To make our words count for as much as possible is surely the simplest as well as the hardest secret of style. Its difficulty consists in the thousand ways of rectifying our mistakes, eliminating our inaccuracies and replacing our falsities -- in a word -- editing our prose. When we can do this habitually (even though it never becomes easy) we shall find ourselves honoring the faculty that can do more toward this end than a mastery of prescriptive grammar, more than the observance of idioms and maxims of rhetoric. And what is that faculty? It is the blessing of an orderly mind."

Mr. Follett is not saying to use the fewest words possible when writing. He's saying to choose your words wisely.

I feel that if I can write half so efficiently as he describes, I'll have taken great strides in improving my work. It'll be a long road.

Current Projects:

Recovery (series):

Megaman Classic AU: The first revolt is over and the dust has barely begun to settle, but it seems there are those that want to end this permanently. Not that the second-generation bioroids are going to permit it.

Hiatus--teardown.

Redemption:

Megaman Classic/Zero crossover: Neo Arcadia has gone to hell in a handbasket. The city is slipping, Copy X has lost his mind, the Guardians are completely duped, and someone rudely awakened the Robot Masters from their centuries-long stasis.

In progress, damn long, updates as often as we can manage.

11/29/2014: We're not dead, but I got a new job in marketing, which has been occupying a great deal of my time, and it's been difficult for Midnyght and I to coordinate schedules. Thank you everyone for waiting so patiently: Redemption isn't dead, either, but I don't have an ETA on the next chapter right now.
