For whatever reason you may be reading this...
NOTICE: There is that little thing called life that I just happen to participate in. :P I'm also working on my own book (series, possibly) So fanfiction, as much as I enjoy it, is kinda a second fiddle sort of thing.
Info: Any of the following information may or may not be false. But that's the risk you take on the internet, no? *Laughs* (A lot of stuff on this page is outdated, other then what I'm lazy enough to occasionally mess with)
Name: SolarRuby17, for all intents and purposes. SR17 for short. I also go by Tom, or Chris, whatever strikes your fancy.
Age: Nineteen, currently.
Sex: Male. But, occasionally, you might not be able to tell given some of my behavior. Ya'know... Fanboyish-ness that could come across as fangirlish-ness...
General Appearance: Somewhat on the thin and lanky side. Also shortish, much to my dismay. Brown hair and green eyes. No distinguishing marks, and overall bland in appearance. But who cares. :P
Current Task: Trying to get every single possible support in Fire Emblem: Awakening, so that I may use them to my fanfiction writing advantage.
Personallity: An almost genuine case of bi-polarism. I'll either be a quite emo, with a short temper, the only time I speak is to tell you that you're really ticking me off. Or, a shy, resonable, kind, and intelligent person. I can change on a dime, much to my dismay, as well as that of others. I also have a tendancy to act girlish at times, much to the dismay of those around me. But flowers are so pretty!
And I have an inquenchable romantic appetite.
Phisical Activities: Weightlifting, psudo-marathon running, The martial art of Tae-quon-do (Sue me if I got the spelling wrong :P), and general romping around.
Hobbies: Writing, drawing, reading, composing my own music, video gaming, going on rampages...
Favorite Books: The Bible, textbooks, The Official Dictionary of Sarcasm, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, The Simarillion, NOT anything Harry Potter or, God forbid, Twilight.
Favorite Music Artists: Demon Hunter, Saving Grace, Skillet, Linkin Park, Bon Jovi, Crush 40, Skrillex, Showbread, Project 86, Nodes of Ranvier, War of Ages, As Cities Burn, Blindside, He Is Legend, Lucerin Blue, xDeathstarsx, Emery. And I listen the crap out of these guys. Music is a big influence on my writing. Also, this is pretty much only the surface of it all. I'm just terrible about naming things off the top of my head.
Best foods in existence: Smoothies, pancakes, spaghetti, sweet potatoes, rotisserie chicken, frappuccinos, frozen yogurt, pineapple, tea, mango, cereal, rhubarb pie, crab, pomegranate, pineapple, white fish, homemade soup, oatmeal, toast, green apples, hot chocolate, meatloaf, stew, grapes.
Banes of existence: Evil, injustice, boredom, writer's block, enemy ninjas, the diseases that make raw cookie dough so unhealthy, milk, dead batteries, perverts, chick flicks
Favorite shows: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Transformers Prime (Which is the only good transformers show. And I say that with love and affection. I still watch them all, if only to laugh at their cheesyness.), Pokemon: Original series and Johto Journeys(From back when Pokemon was still good), and maybe one other that I forgot. I'm not a big fan of animation.
Favorite Movies: The Dark Knight Saga, The Avengers (and any movie with one of them), Star Wars, The Lion King, Mulan, Transformers, Fullmetal Alchemist: Conquerer of Shamballa, Up, Sherlock Holmes, Winnie the Pooh, Lilo and Stitch, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, Toy Story, The Emperor's New Groove, Beauty and the Beast, The Princess Bride, The Karate Kid, Real Steel, Aladdin, Tangled, National Treasure, Oliver and Company, Robin Hood (The old disney version), The Great Mouse Detective, Back to the Future, Kung Fu Panda, ect...
Play any video games? Sonic the Hedgehog (The whole series, all the way back to the first on my good ol' Genisis) Kingdom Hearts (Chain of Memories, Dream Drop Distance, 358/2 Days), Fire Emblem, The World Ends With You, Tales of the Abyss, Batman;Arkham Asylum, Transformers, Pokemon, Super Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda (though Spirit Tracks seems like a Fullmetal Alchemist rip-off), Mass Effect, Halo, Call of Duty (Infinity Ward ones only), and a whole bunch of others.
Comics and manga? Fullmetal Alchemist, Sonic the Hedgehog, Batman, Star Wars, And a whole slew of other Manga.
Some of my other favorite things: Ordering stuff that isn't actually on the menu, swivel chairs, blowing my nose in the shower, cutting construction paper, trick-or-treating strategy, Rock-Paper-Scissors, supporting lemonade stands to make the world go round, oxygen, the smell of crayons, roasting marshmallows, the food you'd get during halftime at little league soccer games, getting pocket aces, blanket forts, anime theme songs, automatic paper towel dispensers, writing sarcastic reports for school, series crossover action figure wars, onions dipped into Gatoraid, getting strange adrenaline rushes while fighting difficult video game bosses, guessing plot twists correctly, gym pain, field trips, visiting ethnic places where you don't fit in (Chinatown!), finding zombie survival gear in treasure chests at the mall, taking the kids' bikes for a "test drive", recurring dreams, round pizzas, dogs that look like their owners, grapefruit spoons, pain, singing instrumental songs, those chocolate-banana bomb popsicles from ice cream trucks, recess...
Tropes that apply to me: Adorkable, Badass Adorable, Bookworm and Longcoat, Berserk Button (Don't hurt my friends), Chaotic Good, Combat Pragmatist, Deadpan Snarker, Determinator, Genre Savvy, Guilt Complex, Martyr Without a Cause, Only Sane Man, Self-Deprecation
As far as FanFiction is concerned: I've been reading/writing fanfiction for... what's it been? 7 years now? My reading has varied immensely as my tastes have changed, but nothing beats a good, long, in-depth tale. My writing... Needs a lot of improvement in my opinion, which is why I'm writing fanfiction. Simply to get familiar with writing in the field, so to say. I enjoy most the high fantasy class of stories. Themes and events in these tales, real or fiction, seem to have a level of depth not found elsewhere.
Books, Songs, Videos, TV and Movies, etc.

Edward Elric: "There's no such thing as a painless lesson. They just don't exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can't gain anything without losing something first. Although, if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you'll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah… A heart made fullmetal." Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Sora: (After Riku saves him) "Riku...You're safe, Riku!" Riku: "Wait, haven't we got this backwards? And why are you having a tea party? Sora: "You're safe, Riku!" Riku: "Oh, never mind." Dream Drop Distance

Do a Barrel Role: The addition of feeties to pajamas automatically reduces someone's badassery by forty percent.
Cecil: What should I do? This touching background music makes me think that Golbez was giving me sound brother-to-brother advice earlier, but Firion and Saturday morning cartoons tell me that bad guys are constant liars that never go against the status quo...
Looks like I have to start slaughtering these common enemies until a cutscene makes me decide on who to believe! :D Random comment on the video for Cecil's Dissidia story
"Try not to undermine authority while I'm standing right here, Number Twelve," Xaldin said suddenly, pouring himself a cup of coffee and taking it black—LIKE HIS SOUL. Rather, that should say "cream and two sugars". LIKE HIS SOUL. The narrator emphasizes that the lack of a heart does not turn everyone into a whiny, angsty, wrist-cutting loser. Those Lacking Spines
DiZ had then confronted Naminé — since she was the one responsible for the original memory loss, and equally responsible for Sora's eventual recovery (and he hated admitting that all of his wonderfully flashy monitors and sharpened pencils had zilch to do with the Keyblade Master and oodles to do with his dysfunctional Sims family, where even in pseudo-cyber-life Xehanort refused to obey his desultory dictates and instead busily went about the Sim lab yanking the Sim hearts out of Sim Twilight Town Struggle combatants). Disorganization
Leonardo: "I will avenge my father's honor by slaying you Karai!"(Grabs sword) Splinter: "I forbid it Leonardo! You must not forget, she's the CreamyCheesyCake of my eye!" Leo: (Angsty) "What about me!" Splinter: "You never dressed up as cheese for me, my son." A Cheesy Tail of Romance
On the other hand, getting Leon in trouble with Tifa was like watching a car crash in an action movie; it typically involved lots of explosions and property damage and resulted in severe personal injury, but was highly entertaining for everyone else. All Your Base Are Belong To Us

A recent survey stated that the average person's greatest fear is having to give a speech in public. Somehow this ranked even higher than death which was third on the list.

Fics:The Good Stuff. Thanks for reading this far.
Tales From the MMORPGS: A collection of one-shots dealing with my MMO characters in both Star Wars;The Old Republic, and World of Warcraft. Totally pointless, and is only written as I get ideas for it while playing said games. I'm not likely ever going to post this here. Ongoing.
Rune Factory; Sharance Scuffle!: Becasue I thought it was funny how every single girl who is single in Rune Factory3 just happens to fawn over you. Short and random. Incomplete. On haitus. Not likely ever going to be finished.
Project L.O.A.D: Also know as 'Luminious Occultus; Another Day'. Based in MaiMai11's Kid Icarus story 'Luminous Occultus', which I happen to participate in. Kai, Belle, Patricia, Pit, Palutena and the whole crew go on another adventure against the forces of darkness. Incomplete. On haitus pending verification from MaiMai. :P
Of Mobian and Machine: Arguably the oldest of my storys. Set in the Archieverse of Sonic the Hedgehog, It's based mostly on Metal Sonic 2.5, who Archie decided to revive anyways. So, After digging the old drafts out of the vault, I'm currently in the process of completely reworking the story to fit with the current canon. Also, borrowing some ellements from my idol, LordCooler, I am implementing a bit of MetaCole.(MetalxNicole, FTW!) Ongoing.
It's Massively Effective!!: Because Mass Effect was just too good not to be parodied. On Haitus.
FMA; Bound by Blood: A FullMetal Alchemist story. Currently nothing more then a whole bunch of plot ideas.
Final Fantasy XIII 2/3; The Eternal Paradox: I love time travel. Yes I do. This is basically me running rampant with that concept. Lots of fluffy NoelxSerah and HopexLightning going around too! On Haitus.
AGB; A Cave Story Adventure: A tribute to the greatest indie game of all time. Nothing major. Ongoing.
A Heart of his Own: A KH story about Roxas. Dude has such a sad story. I just had to cut him a breck. The fact that he is my favorite KH character who I totally fanboy over (Not in a gay way) might have something to do with that though. Ongoing. (Slowly)
The Kingdom Hearts High School Experiance's Unofficial Continuation: This was originally just to satisfy my deep disapointment that this story was never finished. I liked the concept though. I might re-visit it some time. Incomplete. On haitus.
Tales of the Sacred Flame: A psudo-sequel to Tales of the Abyss. Nothing but a bunch of plot ideas. Like to never be finished. Or even worked on for that matter.
Reminiscence of a Necromancer: Because Jade is just that awesome.
To Live a Dream: This one I actually have posted, so go read it instead of having me explain it to you. ;P
In the Wind and the Light: See above.
Wind Mage Trilogy Pt.2:
Wind Mage Trilogy Pt.3:
The Tactician Trilogy Pts. 1,2, and 3:
Of Lords and Tacticians: A whole bunch of Fire Emblem Awakening couples one-shots!

I based the whole format of my profile page on another user, Do a Barrel Roll, because I liked her format, and we happen to have a ton in common. I have had no contact whatsoever with this person.
