Tv tropes' Page of the story.
My first fanfiction, and one based on the Naruto universe.
Based on the idea of a multiverse where multiple alternate Narutos coexist and meet for many adventures.
The secondary goal of this story, beside showing alternate versions of the canon characters interact, is to fill the plot holes left in canon. Why Naruto never asked anything about his parents, how did the Uzumaki and the Senju clans end up extinct...
The third goal is to present an effective deconstruction (aka apply real life consequences or points out the flaws writers overlook) of different Naruto cliches/premises you see in fanfiction, from Evil!Naruto (a tragic, miserable character whose suffering however does not excuse his behavior, simply explain it) to Cloud!Naruto (whose defection caused an international incident). Here, genin level people are outmatched by old ninjas, and can only win with a lot of preparation, teamwork and determination.
Blame the Cookies:
A humorous parody of supervillains co-authored by Slayer End. On indefinite hiatus due to lack of synchronization between us and horrible schedules. Dead.
What it Takes to Win:
My try on a Fate/Stay Night fanfiction. Basically deals with a far bigger Fifth War with 49 Servants and a lot more problems. It also contains a lot more humor than my first story and is supposed to add hidden depths to underused characters and Servants. That, and have awesome battles. Will probably mock the 'secret war' premise, with the battle for Holy Grail becoming public. Undiluted fanservice for the fandom.
The story's pairings will be a love triangle between Shirou, Saber and the EXTRA!Caster, which resolution isn't set in stone. For other pairings, it will include Rin/Archer, either Shiki/Satsuki or Shiki/Arcueid, and probably some strange pairings like Aoko Aozaki/Shakespeare (you read that right).
On hiatus due to Writer's Block.
My second 'true' Naruto fic. It would as such would avoid many of the mistakes I did during Echoes' run in term of narrative. The premise would 'what if Naruto was a badass normal', and deal with the depths of the Shinobi World and its secret wars, along with Naruto's quest to become the strongest ninja alive in spite of having no awesome jutsu, only a brain and guts.
Tv tropes page of the story.
An attempt at making a funny yet epic story on both Warhammer 40K and Fate/Stay Night. More or less what happens when extremely overpowered character are tasked to battle to the death in the middle of the city... while not caring about subtlety.
Reflecting on my stories:
You know, when I reread my old stories, one of the many things I tell myself is 'I can't believe I wrote that'. It's pretty odd rereading old stories three years after you began writing them. We aren't all like Stephen King, making very good novels on our first try; most of us make mistakes we learn from.
I will never regret writing any of my stories, but I guess if I could get back in time, I would have done many things differently. Made a better plot, made more complex characters, improved the pacing and foreshadowed plot points much earlier.
Meh, I guess it shows I'm starting to improve as a storyteller.
Echoes Ending on December/Novel Links
First of all I deeply apologize for posting this in the profile; I would have rather put it in a chapter to inform everyone quickly but I had forgotten the guildelines prevent posting chapters without story content.
I am posting about two things.
First, after reading reviews and PMs, I have decided to pre write the three chapters long Grand Finish of Echoes and then publish them quickly from one another; the three parts will be published on December, a short time apart from one another (a few days roughly). I intended to use November to participate in the NaNoWriMo, but I think after making you wait for five years, you readers get higher priority.
Echoes WILL be finished before 2016 ends. I'm only fully productive when I have a deadline... and now I have it. December 2016.
Once Echoes is finished, I will go finish Atlas, then Property Damage.
Second... after receiving some very nice messages, I've decided to post the links of my first non-fanfic work.
I know this won't interest many of you (this is a fanfiction site after all), but I did receive quite a surprising number of PMs asking for the links, so, here we go.
Even if you aren't interested in buying the book, the story, "Dis Acedia", is published freely as a web serial on Wordpress every Monday and Friday. It already has quite a bit of content.
The link is: di sacedia. wordpr ess . com (remove additional spaces)
The story follows a man trapped in a prison-world for otherworldly beings and doing his best to adjust there. Prison Break meets Berserk/Dark Souls would be a good summary. It follows a first person narration, alternating with third person chapters following other characters. Dis Acedia also has a Tv tropes page for those wishing to view some of the content without having to read the whole thing.
The first volume (out of four to five planned) is titled "The Laws of Dis" and is available on Amazon.
The link is: ww w . amazon (add a dot) com/dp/B01M1FTOL2 (remove additional spaces)
The thing is... I was a bit anxious about linking these two identities because I've learned most people online don't believe you can ever change. Once something is posted, it is never forgotten, and your history is always used against you, for good or ill. You never have the chance of making a second first impression, as a wise man said, and it has never been truer nowadays.
I thought that writing fanfics would always be held against me. I already have quite a few people disliking me or my stories online and I was afraid it would color the reception of my non-fanfic works.
I wanted a fresh start.
But after some thinking... I realized this was highly immature of me. Like trying to erase the mistakes of the past instead of learning from them. If the past is always to come to light, I might as well make the most use of it. No matter how much I want to, I can't please everyone... and trying to do that is counterproductive. The perfect is the enemy of the good, as they say.
I may not have written the best stories there is, but I'm proud of having done them at all. I'm proud of having given thousands of people something to read and enjoy.
I have done quite a few errors in my fics, because I started writing them as a teen with no experience; I learned about execution, about plot and characters, and I feel I have steadily kept improving over time. My goal is simply to keep going for better and better stories.
I don't do this for money (well, yes and no; I do like earning a little extra buck when my Ebook is purchased on Amazon). In over five years of publishing stories I've never been paid for writing fanfics, and I don't make much from that Ebook in question. But I keep writing because, well... I love to tell and read stories, and I want to share all my little worlds with other people.
So, I want to say... thanks. Thanks for following me this far, for your patience. And thanks for your encouragements and kind words.
