I don't write stories (lol, apparently now I do). Luckily I know a few people who do. Make sure you check out Reborn Dark Phoenix. All his stories are amazing I don't think he can do anything wrong. Seriously, his Marvel Civil War story 'Spider-Man & Ms. Marvel: Love & War' is the best fanfic I've ever read, and I don't even think it's halfway done yet. I'm not kidding, that is one of the best, if not the best fanfiction ever made. Also be sure to check out Dakkaman777 as well. But read 'The Marvel Alliance' before you read 'The Flames of War' though. His stories feature what might just be the best OC ever made. And of course the amazing AquilaTempestas is also one of my favorites, and she has a lot of great stories up her sleeve. Also she's real nice (not to her characters though, heh heh) and has written some amazing stories, including my personal favorite; Ravaged World. She's also really great to have a conversation with and is very open to ideas about her stories, basically she's the best kind of author.
Here's some basic info about me: I'm male, 20 years old (recently turned), and live on the eastern seaboard of the United States. Good bye.
Just kidding. I like comics. I guess overall I'd say I like DC better, but... at the moment anything Marvel because of the New 52. Not all of it but.. WHERE IS DONNA TROY?? *clears throat* anyway... I got something I think needs to be said.
By far my least favorite thing even remotely related to creative writing is OC's. I hate them. Most of them are all Mary Sues or whatever and the author usually shits all over the canon for the sake of his/her own character. For example, I absolutely HATE it when I see an OC beat the crap out of a canon character just because. Not all OC's are terrible. Some are actually really good characters with great writing and a good storyline behind them. Not gonna mention any names, but if I though your OC was great I'd tell you. Wow that sounded harsh, but you know what I mean. Unfortunately the few good OC's do not make up for the 98% of original characters that just are not good. Sorry if you have an OC but that character doesn't have the benefit of the doubt in terms of my opinion. But hey, who knows? I've seen both good and bad OC's.
The problem with OC's is this: nobody cares. An OC is made so you have a much easier time relating to the universe (some people's OCs are re-imaginings of themselves in the universe that the fic is in). There's nothing wrong with that, but that's something you should write in a diary or journal or something. I do understand though, I wanted to write a fic of my character play-through of Pokemon Emerald, but then I realized I was doing the same thing that I have problem with. The only one who can relate to the universe is ME, since it's my play-through. Even if I made a really good OC it wouldn't matter. And while not all OC's are like this, too many are. If I'm reading someone else's fanfic about the time they played Ruby or Sapphire, I just don't care about their character. And why should I? And don't even get me started on self-inserts...too late...
Self-Inserts are worse. At least OC's are in the universe of whatever the fanfic is about. But self-inserts basically bridge our world and the fic world. Since the main character is the author, you'd think that they would be more relate-able right? But are they? I have no idea, because this becomes irrelevant when the whole story isn't believable in the first place. When your writing(just as an example) a self-insert into Pokemon Emerald, the moment you inexplicably get transferred to the Pokemon world, you bring along logic and reasoning too. That doesn't work with that universe though (suspension of disbelief)! This means that the story is going to make no sense whatsoever. Trying to connect our world to the pokemon world doesnt work, and how the hell are we supposed to relate to you, which is the whole point of bringing yourself into the Pokemon World, when nothing is making any sense. Ughhh this is hard to explain, but I hope you understand.
I do understand the idea. Imagine how freakin awesome it would be if we lived in the Pokemon world? That would be sick! I could go around catching whatever Pokemon I want, becoming friends with Sabrina and Red and taking down Team Galactic! I also made a Marvel OC, hes a ninja badass whos wearing the Nightingale Armor from Skyrim. How awesome is that? It's really awesome, for me. Nobody else is gonna give a shit, and nobody else should give a shit. Do you see what I'm saying?
I'm not a flamer, I just dislike OC's. The whole concept of them.
Favorite T.V. Shows: The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones (RIP... Uhm... Everyone), Doctor Who, Supernatural is good too, I really like Arrow, uhm... There are others but I don't remember them at the moment.

Yet), The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Alien, and V for Vendetta, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Also if you think a character should be on that list tell me and I'll tell you where I put them. And if I forgot them... Shit..

I have recently engrossed myself in Pokemon lore and all those conspiracy theories (Ash's coma, death of Blue's Raticate, Ditto is a failed Mew clone, Gengar is Clefairy's shadow, etc etc) and some of them are not only extremely interesting, but actually somewhat believable. Here are a bunch that I like. Im not going in-depth.
(Note: these are theories about/in the Pokemon Universe. Meaning I dont care if Game Freak snuck Mew into Red&Blue without telling Nintendo, or if Buttefree was supposed to be Venomoth)
-death of Blue's Raticate
-N is a Zoroark
- Genesect is a modified Kabutops
-Red is Ash's older brother, and everything that happens to Ash is a rest of Red's earlier adventures
-Cubones are baby Kangaskhans (not very interesting, but you cant deny the evidence)
-The Pokemon War/ Mass Extinction
- Team Rocket, the Lavender Town Radio Tower, and the abandoned hill in Vermillion
- Maybe Humans are aliens that took over the Pokemon world?
- Ash's age (see bottom)
- Red is a ghost
- The Legendary Beasts Trio (Raikou, Entei, and Suicune) are reincarnated Eeveelutions (Jolteon, Flareon, Vaporeon)
- The Kanto (and Johto) Elite Four are evil
- The Gym Leader's revolt (after Red became Champion)
-It was Bianca who kissed Ash at the end of Pokemon Heroes, however she left her hat on the mirror and didn't speak so that he would think it was Latias (perhaps she was shy).
This is a complicated one. We know time passes in the show because when Ash returns to Viridian to get his 8th Gym Badge (season 2, episode 8, which has Mewtwo btw), he states its been a year since he left. But in a B&W Episode (fairly recent), the narrator states that Ash is still 10. So either time hasnt passed or the present day doesnt exist. Still with me? Good, now hang on. After Ash got shocked by Pikachu to save them from the Spearow in the first episode, Ash saw Ho-Oh flying. In a pokedex entry, it states that whoever sees Ho-Oh is granted eternal happiness. Now consider that ever since then, Ash hasnt aged a day. Nobody seems to notice or question this. He has met or befriended nearly every Elite Four member across five regions, and become good friends with the majority of the Champions of those regions. He has ridden on the back of more Legendary Pokemon than most people see in their entire life, and hes met even more Legendary Pokemon than that. Also, as a side note, he is constantly surrounded by chicks, even if he doesn't know what "chicks" are (Ash: Uhm, baby Torchics?). So... Exactly what is eternal happiness in the Pokemon world? I think that fits it as well as anything.
Well, I guess that covers it. If your curious about any theories or wish to debate them, I invite you to send me a PM. I always respond, so don't hold back.
Current Stories in Progress:
-Pokemon: Moths to a Flame(AU)
There's nothing really to say. It's my first and only (for now), and I can't say it's perfect, but it's gotten some positive reviews and I really enjoy writing it. It's not complete but I do actively update and I'd say we're getting close to the end, but I might make it longer if I get any ideas from either myself, my peers, or the feedback from you awesome viewers. I won't be starting another story until this one is finished.
-Pokemon: Gambling With Fire (AU)
Yes, I am planning a sequel, and I do have a good idea of what it's gonna be about. But besides that nothing has come to me and I'm not putting much thought into this because I focus mostly on Moths to a Flame. But I did wanna tell anyone that liked my previous story that I do have plans for a sequel, and if you want to input or help out in any way don't be shy I respond to all PM's, and I'd love to have your input and feedback as well.
-Pokemon: Moths to a Flame: The Overlooked Saga
Nothing on this one only that I think I'm going to make a side story about Cynthia/other characters after Moths to a Flame is finished, and it will take place (obviously) in that universe.
Betas: I actually don't have a Beta Reader at the moment, and I'm not sure I'll need one. I don't think I'm going to look for one either, so if you wanna Beta-read for any of my stories then u'll have to PM me and we'll talk.
