Author has written 2 stories for X-overs, and Bionicle.
Name: Preferably not
Country: "The road to the north" they call it.
Phone number: Go on, guess
Gender: I'm a dude
Sexuality: Solidly straight
Age: I was born in the 1994th year A.D on the 16th day of the 8th month
Height: I hardly ever bother to check, but if memory serves me right (it usually does) I'm somewhere in the 170 cm range
Weight: That's personal. Oh wait, no it isn't, I just don't remember
Marital status: I'm single, and at the moment I'm okay with that
Religion: I am a Protestant Chrsitian, and I'm perfectly fine with that.
Cartoons: Cartoons are my "grand passions", so to speak. I firmly believe that cartoons are a medium for all ages that should be viewed with the same respect as live-action TV or serials. Just like a good TV show or movie, a good cartoon is made by adults with passion and a story to tell.
Some of my favorite cartoons include:
Fillmore: This show was my absolute favorite cartoon back on the old Disney Channel. On top of being both action-packed and fun, it was, and still is, quite intelligent, and had some very powerful messages of morality and life to give as well.
Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go: Much like Teen Titans, this was a show that looked really silly on the surface, but would go on to prove that if it wanted to, it could be one of the most touching and poignant cartoons out there, and Super Robot Monkey Team did that very often. The characters are all well written and work off each other really well, the plots are mostly clever and surprisingly dark at times, and the music and voice acting is nothing short of phenomenal.
Futurama: I decided to check out Futurama in a total spur of the moment, and I haven't regretted it since.
Video Games: I'm also a pretty avid gamer, and have been so for the vast majority of my life. In general, I'm pretty drawn to the big, expansive, open-world RPG types of games, of which I'm the most familiar with the Fallout series. My favorite game of the genre is Fallout: New Vegas, because it's by far the most flexible and well written compared to the two modern Fallout titles Bethesda made themselves, in my opinion.
I'm also very fond of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic duology, and have sunk many hours into that as well. The story and characters introduced to me in these games left a far stronger impression on me than any of the movies could manage, even the Original Trilogy or Episode VII.
I'm also a big fan of Mass Effect, where the characters and the world is what really does it for me, in particular the hilarity of Mordin Solus, the emotional honesty of Tali'Zorah, the ruthless philosophy and ethics of Javik and the remarkably-cunning-yet-so-incredibly-innocent Legion.
Ratchet & Clank is another series I still get into from time to time, mainly due to nostalgia. Ratchet & Clank was the first video game franchise I ever became a real fan of, which definitely gives it a strong attraction for me even years later.
Roleplaying: In several forms, be it text-based, DnD or other tabletop ventures. Yeah, I'm a massive geek.
TV Shows: The Big Bang Theory, Seinfeld, Nytt på Nytt (Basically Norway's version of Britian's "Mock the week"). Agatha Christie's Marple and Poirot, QI, Top Gear, Louie.
Movies: Too many to count, mostly sci-fi and action movies, but I'm always up for, say, a historical drama or a well-made romance
Toys: LEGO, particularily Bionicle.
Music: Mark Knopfler is my favorite artist without question, I also like Øystein Sunde, Driftless Pony Club, Hellbillies, Jahn Teigen, Alan Jackson, Eminem, Chuck Berry and Billy Joel.
Geardirector's one-shots and other tales: This one will depend entirely on my current situation.
AWESOME QUOTES BY AWESOME PEOPLE
"If I may, Superman. It's true that I gave Marvel characters imperfections to make them more relatable than DC's characters. But just because they're imperfect, doesn't mean they don't aspire to be the best they possibly can. Everyone, hero or not, would love to be able to do more, be better, to always know right from wrong, and have the strength to make sure right always wins. You are that perfection, Superman. The reason my characters are so relatable, is that they're all trying to be like you, just like everyone else. Hollywood may lose faith in you sometimes, but everyone else never will."

"Maybe, but it's an honest C. And years from now, when we're all just black and white photos dusting off in some yearbook, that honest C is gonna be worth more than that bogus A. Cuz it will mean that you earned something more important; honor, man"

"Hate Islam, but love muslims"

"I don't like definitions, but if there is a definition of freedom, it would be when you have control over your reality to transform it, to change it, rather than having it imposed upon you. You can't really ask for more than that."
