Translation of username: Maelstrom of Death
Real name: Mike. Just Mike.
Age: *Laughs* Right, like I'm gonna tell you. Let's just say that I was born within the first HOUR of '93.
Gender: I'm a dude. Seriously, how many people have even HEARD of a girl named 'Mike'? Huh?
Location: Computer... (DUH!)
Home: Las Vegas (Not zoomin' any closer than that!)
Likes: Stories: .Hack, Code: Lyoko, Gin Iro No Kami No Agito, Pokemon

Dislikes: Yaoi, bad reviews (Flames for the purpose of Flaming somebody)
Favorite Fanfiction author(s): UBE Chief
Favorite characters of all time: Shugo, Rena, Kite, Black Rose, Aura, Zefie, Ouka of the divine fist (BOOBS!), Mirielle, Helba, Mistral, Balmung of the Azure Sky, Orca of the Azure Sea (.Hack); Dawn, Ash, Lugia, Latios (the blue one), Groudon, Rayquayza, Dialga, Pikachu, Deoxys, Empoleon, Venusaur, Kyogre (All of these are Pokemon, obviously); Ichigo Kurasaki, Orihime, Rukia (Bleach); Ako, Keita and Rika (KissxSis); Jeremy (Who's practically my twin when it comes to nerdiness and intelligence), Aeleita(*Drools*), Yumi, Odd, Ulrich (Code: Lyoko)
Shugo/Rena (*Sarcastically* Yes, I know it's twincest. So sue me)
I think a Kite/Aura or Shugo/Aura would be interesting... Just sayin'. (Hmmm... Maybe Zefie in place of Aura... *Evil Laugh* Mwa ha ha ha ha!)
Kite/Ouka (Because Ouka seems to like Shugo a little too much. Don't believe me? Collar. Boob hug. 'Nuff sed.)
Jeremy/Aeleita (Who DOESN'T like this one?)
Ulrich/Yumi (*Yawn* I've seen this movie...)
Ash/Bianca or Ash/Latias (I personally like Bianca, but I'm also of the firm belief that it was a disguised Latias that kissed Ash at the dock. Im my headcanon, the Latias and Latios that are seen at the end are Ash and Latias's children...)
FemNaruto/Shikimaru (The lazy genius paired with the very incarnation of hyperactive, chaotic mischief? Hell yeah!)
Naruto/TenTen (Because Naruto needs a nice sharp smack upside the head occasionally, and who better to give it than someone who clanks while walking?)
I deny the existence of the Naruto/Sakura pairing... Sakura can have the brooding, murderous, emo with a duck's ass on the back of his head if she wants. It'll only make me cheer more when he kills her... And yes, I know I said 'when'. That was intentional.
Minor rant: I've seen many, many stories that have disclaimers at the beginnings. This confuses me. Isn't the fact that we're posting this on a site called fanfiction.net disclaimer enough? The FAN part should say all you need to know.
Anyways, effective immediately, I'm going to stop using disclaimers. There will be only two exceptions: The first would be me using song lyrics in a fic. The second would be if I mention a story by another FF author. In either case, the disclaimer/credit given will be on the bottom of the chapter that said element appears in.
That is all.
My randomness; A.K.A. Random Quotes for Random People:
Call me crazy. Everyone else does. (So true...)
"Do you have a purpose?" The girl asked me. For once, I had no answer.
An island!/ In a storm!/ I've seen this movie! (Hey! Can ya blame me? Pokemon is AWESOME!)
I'm a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar. (There's a cookie for anyone who understands that reference, but first, let me find the box... *Rummages around* Oops! Sorry! Fresh outta cookies!)
Don't make a girl a promise... if you know you can't keep it.
Any man that wants to find himself had better start by admitting that he doesn't know where the hell he is.
this is michael's sister not logging out when he leaves his thing open. i'm just wondering how long it will take him to notice this. it is now 3:03 monday august 26. plz don't tell him, that would ruin the experiment. (I have realized. I'm leaving it up.)
This is an actual conversation between me and a friend at school:

Friend: Pervertedness throughout my private parts!
Me: Shut up you little bastard! I don't need to know about your boners!
This is funny:

Man 2: Why did you get in trouble?
Man 1: Because I got her a scale...

I believe that if it weren't for humans, cats would rule the world. (They'd do a hell of a better job at it, too.)

To find the truth in the world, you must first find the truth within yourself.
We change people just by being near them. Our existence deforms the universe. There's nothing wrong with that.
All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: Freedom, Justice, Honor, Duty, Mercy, and Hope. -Winston Churchill
"To every man is given the key to heaven. The same key opens the gates to hell." -Richard Feynman
I think the fact that intelligent alien life exists is proven by the fact that they don't come to earth. - Paraphrased from one of my game forums.
Don't worry about the bullet with your name on it. Be worried about the one that says 'To whom it may concern.' -From the TV show 'Homicide Hunters: Lt. Joe Kenda.
Politicians should take the example of NASCAR drivers: On their jackets, they should wear the logos of all their sponsors. Maybe then, we'll know why they vote the way they do. -Paraphrased from Robin Williams: Weapons of Self Destruction
It is often said that the best way to test a man's character is to give him power. While this is true, there is another way. Give them the ability to change. To influence. To affect others. To change the world in any way they see fit. And then take it all away. Make them watch as the world turns in all it's cruel, inexorable glory. Ensure that they cannot look away. Make them realize that nothing they did mattered. That they were helpless to influence things when it mattered, that the world would turn even if they could do as they wished. Then free them. Let them fall, and just watch. It makes one wonder. Do they ever get up after falling to the cold, hard earth they thought they knew so well? What broke in the impact? What was broken before they landed? And when they finally crash to the unforgiving ground, do they realize that they're still falling? - Paraphrased Excerpt from Take Two, Round Two (Chapter 4) by Third Fang.
In valleys of dusk, in oceans unbound.
In rivers of blood, in skies of black.
I shall never fall, for my spirit is of stone, and my will of iron tempered.
In these words of mine, I vow to fight.
I vow to make my enemies tremble before me.
For I am the whisper in the wind, the predator on silent wings.
I am the master of the dark, he who haunts the dreams of sinners.
I bow to no one. I am... Nightwing.
Someone in the forums for one of my games asked what the draw is to video games set in space. This was my response.
It is human nature to look at the stars and think 'What's out there?' or even look across a valley at a mountain on the opposite side with a sense of longing.
Our earliest ancestors were a nomadic people, always travelling, never staying still for too long. I believe that when humanity went from nomadic to sedentary, we lost a fundamental aspect of our lives. The only reason we don't feel it more keenly, is because we don't know any better. We've been raised to resist the very idea of a nomadic lifestyle. Even those that feel like they should be somewhere else are contented by staring at a screen. That's not freedom. That's living in a cage of your own will and making.
Is it any wonder why the happiest people are often the ones that own nothing but themselves? They have rediscovered the joy of exploration. The thrill of cresting a hill, and seeing that there's far more distance to travel. They have rediscovered what it means to be human.
