Author has written 3 stories for Naruto, Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple, and League of Legends.
Hey guys, I'm ChickenGodofDoom. Don't ask me how I got the name, because it's a long story and I'm not sure I remember anyway.
One of the two. Or maybe both.
I live in Australia (and was born and raised), and therefore use Australian/British English predominantly- it was how I was taught. (am being taught)
A word of warning: I noticed as of lately that my stories are generally very slow developers and my plot pacing and general storyline planning is piss-poor, but I unfortunately don't see that changing anytime in the near future.
If you're fine with that, then by all means go ahead and read on, and enjoy. If you're not fine with that... well, then you're at liberty to not read it at all, or flame, or ignore it, or whatever. But consider yourself warned, and your displeasure is by no means my fault. That is assuming the fact that you are to read this profile before you read my stories... huh. On second thoughts, nobody does that, so this is just me rambling 'cause I dunno what else to put in my profile XD.
Have a good day, and I do hope you enjoy my stories.
Huge thanks to my beta reader and close friend, MisterKuma, without whom my stories would be complete shit (not saying that they're not).

'Splitting Leaves, Flying Shadows': Represents my first foray into fanfiction and thus holds a lot of sentimental value. I've made a lot of mistakes writing this, which is okay, because I can hopefully avoid the same or similar mistakes further on, or on other stories. But because of these mistakes in the early chapters, this will never be my best fic, or porbably even be considered a 'good' story. I was aiming at writing a plot that differed (at least in the beginning) from the original manga, simply because it's been rehashed and re-imagined so many times on this site already (many of those times done really amazingly, too). Of course, I was planning to merge the two after a period of time, but a combination of poor planning and overall inexperience resulted in some disappointing chapters.
I've no doubt turned off a lot of readers with those under-par chapters, especially because the Naruto fanbase has such a huge readership and the sheer enormous range and selection of the stories available on this site (with quite a number of masterpieces among them). This fic will likely never rise above mediocre. I've accepted this, but I doubt I will quit writing it or prematurely cut it off, in part out of respect for the quite respectable number of readers who have 'favourited' or 'followed' it or bothered to leave a kind or constructive review, and also partly because I want to give any future readers a sense of security that I will not easily abandon any of my stories, no matter the circumstances. Hopefully I will manage to do this clumsy piece justice in the end, and give it a story and ending to be proud of in the end, ultimately achieving some kind of late-game fulfillment.
As of 2016, I have regrettably reneged on my prior resolution to continue writing this story. I know it's terrible of me, and I apologise profusely. But the thing is, the story has gotten so difficult to write that I have begun to feel that writing it is more of an ordeal than a hobby. I have begun, while writing the next chapter, to dread what used to be an enjoyable activity, and instead wish for it to be over with, so I could write the next chapter of my other stories. The story has spiralled out of my control, and unfortunately, I felt it was in my best interest to put the beast down rather than letting it live a tortured existence at my own expense.
'Remnant': Easily my most popular story so far, 'Remnant' represents my first real taste of success. While the reception of 'Splitting Leaves, Flying Shadows' has been quite good as well (I really am not complaining) and probably only ever reached lukewarm at worst, Remnant has by far smashed it out of the water in terms of popularity, even though it is 10 chapters (roughly 5000 X 10= 50,000 words) shorter. I'm sure a large factor of this is that any crossover fandom will be tiny compared to the vast sea that is Naruto fanfiction, and so will naturally receive more attention by virtue of less competition, but still, it is nice to sit with my iPad during a boring university lecture and just scroll through the wonderful reviews and positive energy that comes from readers enjoying my work. For this story, it's the one that will follow the original work's plotline the closest. Hopefully I will continue to live up to expectations as I go, and write what will ultimately be an entertaining and satisfying read.
'Legend Reviving': League of Legends has been my favourite game for years now, ever since I started playing seriously with my friends. I've spent countless hours on it, and probably have spent more money on it than I care to think about it. As with anything that you have a passion for, I naturally developed a love of all things League and so eagerly devoured the lore and the Journal of Justice when it was out. It was very interesting, but you don't play the game for the lore of its characters. The lore isn't defined, and the world of Runeterra isn't very well explored in any media.
So, keeping in mind that excessive world-building was something criticised in 'Splitting Leaves, Flying Shadows', and to a lesser extent in 'Remnant', I decided to give writing a crossover with Naruto a shot. I did this because anything mixed with Naruto gives a massive boost in readership, as well as Naruto being one of my favourite manga to boot, having spent much of my high school life trawling the fanfiction archives for interesting stories to enjoy. Also, League naturally- as non-linear as it is- has no protagonist, and while it's not impossible, writing a good story without a main protagonist is really difficult and requires a lot of skill- skill I don't believe I possess at the moment.
So, the way I saw it, League has no protagonist, no existing plot. All it has are diverse and interesting characters, a vibrant and ever expanding world and its elements, and a large and passionate fanbase. With this story I'm writing, I can finally use that world-building that I love doing, and construct something in the empty space that Riot purposely left. Like I said, there is no real plot to adhere to, so I'm at liberty to do anything I please. With 'Legend Reviving', I am probably going to base it around the characters that make League of Legends what it is, and keep the actual plot progression rather slow. This is probably going to not be to some readers' tastes, and if things get too slow, I do have some ideas to speed things up. But whatever happens, hopefully this will follow in its predecessor's steps, and become something that is received well, and becomes a hit. The reception so far has been warm, and there have been many encouragements, so I will do my best to not let you down.
NOTICE: I'll clarify this in my stories, but my crossover stories will most likely feature one protagonist entering and fully interacting with the world of another. There will be very little, if at all, appearance from characters from the first world, and for the most part will remained centered in the plot and elements of the second series. Also, if there is a main protagonist in the second storyline, I will most likely write as if he never existed, and the inserted protagonist will replace him almost fully. My justification for this is if I am writing only a single world with a singular set of villains and characters, there is only room for one protagonist. If there were two, then it would complicate matters, as there would need to be two parallel courses of character development, and two pairs of relationships, dynamics, emotions, personality and thoughts to keep track of. And personally, I don't think I'm skilled enough of an author to do something like that in a manner that would be enjoyable to read.
