Yo. The name's ThatLoneAvenger, or Mike if you want. Got it memorized?
Anyways, welcome to my profile. Now, I'm not gonna get all personal and emotional with you guys about beliefs or politics, or do any of that "copy/paste this to your profile if you can relate" crap; nor am I gonna give y'all some long-ass monologue about myself that you guys don't give enough f*cks to read. On here, what you'll find is just everything that has to do with my writing works on this site, which consists of the following:
• My Stories
• My Recommended Stories
• Story Chapter Indexes
• Theme Songs (With Embedded Links!)
• Sneak Previews of Current Works
• Other Such Stuff
I'd also like to make it known that I'm currently a degree-pursuing college student and a part-time worker. That being said, it's a challenge for me to be able to balance the time I spend between that, my writing on here, and my other real-world extracurricular activities. So my updates tend to have long spans of time between each other; so if you're willing to wait long-ass amounts of time for me to update my works, seriously, you're awesome; thank you.

My Recommended Stories
Yu-Gi-Oh! Reality's Curtain, by Master Of Anime224 - Set in the fictional city of Nishihama, Japan, this story follows the path of young duelist MatsudaYukaro as he struggles to unravel the mysteries surrounding a strange woman, an off-putting classmate, and a group of shady individuals with less-than-innocent intentions. But little does he know that the forces he's chasing after will not only have an effect on the lives of him and hisfriends, but on the very fabric of reality itself...
White TV Room, by iAnneart - Ever wanted to know how the actual characters of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! series would react if they saw their series ABRIDGED? Then this is a must-read! I swear to god, every time I read a new chapter of this, I die laughing at least two or three times. Seriously, if you love YGO Abridged, you gotta go read this thing. I promise that you won't be disappointed. XD
Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-VOC, by OPFan37 - What seems to be your typical self-insert-into-the-main-story YGO fic, but with one special twist... our new hero KNOWS he's in the Arc-V anime. XD This is truly a unique take on the long-ass genre I just mentioned, and from what I've read so far, it really does work beautifully. I can see why the community on here has really taken a liking to this story, and I look forward to reading more of it myself.

Other Projects I'm Working On
• As of right now, I'm actually working on another all-original YGO story. Currently it's a work in progress, but I'm working with a good and dear friend of mine to make it into something awesome and publishable for readers to enjoy.
• I also have this "Batman/Hitman Crossover" story idea that I've been tossing around in my head for a while. I'm still working on fine-tuning all the details for it, but admittedly, it's a far simpler idea than any of my other ideas, so I really could just finish planning it and writing it whenever I like. Between my real-world tumbles and my work on MOD (primarily), DFD, and my other secret YGO project, it all just depends on what I feel like doing in the end. xD
If ANYONE is interested in collaborating with me on any of these projects, or on any ideas and works of your own, then by all means, shoot me a private message. I love working with others; in fact, it's what's made MOD such a special project for me because I've had at least five other personal friends helping me develop it into what it is today.
If you just spent a couple minutes or so of your life that you'll never get back reading all of this... well, I'll just thank you for that, I suppose. xD Regardless, I hope it was of some enjoyment to you, and I hope that you will find enjoyment in my work.
Thanks for reading, and stay awesome, everyone.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Mark of Death
Chapter 13: "Scars"
"It really has been quite a while..." Liam said as he made his way down the marble stairs, "Hasn't it, Mike?"
Mike was silent as he glared up at the approaching Cyber Style master. Behind him, Violet, Danny, Marina, and Josiah could only watch on with bewildered expressions as they struggled to process what were seeing. Danny practically had to pick up his jaw from where it had fallen on the ground before muttering in Mike's ear, "Dude, you actually know Liam Carson? Since freakin' when?!"
But Mike ignored Danny's direct question as he continued to watch Liam, who finally came to a stop at the bottom of the stairway. "I'm glad to see you made it out of Frontier Haven in one piece," he said casually, "I was almost worried that we'd never get to settle our score."
The four friends' expressions lit up with even more surprise as the Cyber Style master's gaze traveled to them next. "I take it you’re all his friends?" he addressed them, "A pleasure to make all your acquaintances. I'd introduce myself, but I don’t think that's necessary."
Amongst the group, Danny usually would've been the first to respond ecstatically to one of his favorite Pro duelists acknowledging his existence. But the revelation of his best friend's apparent history with Liam in Frontier Haven had left him, for the first time, at a complete loss for words.
Violet, meanwhile, could feel her gut twisting uncomfortably as her mind raced to put the pieces together. Not only had this all but confirmed her suspicions about Mike having something against the Cyber Style master, but now she was left to wonder just what kind of history Mike could've had with him in Frontier Haven...
Everyone's attention now returned to Mike when he finally spoke up again, his glaring eyes burning into Liam’s as he sternly uttered: "What have you done?"
Liam's eyebrows rose at the sudden accusation. "I’m not sure what you mean."
"Like hell you aren’t," Mike snapped, "I know you had something to do with it."
Liam's expression turned quizzical. “To do with what?”
“The Romans. They’re back.”
The eyes of Liam, as well as the four friends, all went wide as the familiar name reached their ears. “The Romans...?” Liam repeated with uncertainty, “I thought you’d managed to put the rest of them down after I left.”
“So did I,” Mike confirmed, “Before I found out that they’ve taken someone I care about.”
Those words hit Violet like a sharp jab to her stomach. So all of this was about Mike’s missing friend that Aeron had spoken of... the girl that Mike had met out in Frontier Haven...
Meanwhile, Liam’s face now turned grim as he looked back at Mike with hardened eyes. “If you think I had some sort of involvement in that, then you’re wrong,” he said, “I cut off my ties to the Romans a long time ago.”
“Yeah, and I remember you saying the exact same thing before you tried to kill me,” Mike shot back, “So sorry if I find it difficult to take you at your word.”
It didn't seem possible for any more shock to spread across the faces of the four friends behind Mike. Liam, meanwhile, only stood in silence for a moment as he stared coolly at the fiery rage burning in Mike’s eyes.
"Believe me Mike, I wish I could help you," he said with sincerity, "But I really don't have any ties to the Romans anymore, and that's the truth."
Mike’s body shook as he and Liam continued to exchange glares. Behind him, the others suddenly felt a tension flare up between the two that had every hair on their bodies standing on edge. They’d seen plenty of intense stare-downs between Mike and Josiah over the years, but those moments hardly compared to the sparks they could feel flying now.
Now, Mike’s fists clenched. "Fine, then..." he said in a low voice, "If you won’t confess to it...”
He lifted his left arm up, brandishing his duel disk before Liam in a threatening manner. “Then I’ll just have to duel it out of you!”
Liam stood in silence for a moment as he observed Mike’s composure. ”Alright, then,” he said as he too lifted up his duel disk arm, “I would’ve preferred to save our rematch for the Pro Circuit like we’d agreed, but I can see there’s no changing your mind here.”
As their duel disks now sparked to life, Danny was the first of the four friends whose eyes widened with realization of what was about to happen before suggesting: “We should probably back up a bit for this...”
Violet and Marina nodded in agreement before pacing a good distance away from their friend and the Cyber Style master. As they did so, Josiah was the only one among them with confusion still on his face as he asked, “Wait, so what the hell’s this all about? What’s a ‘Frontier Haven?’ Who’s this missing friend? And what does this all have to do with Liam Carson?"
"That is all a really long story with no short explanation," was all Danny could think to answer with.
The friends now stopped a good distance away from the two duelists, they turned back to watch as Mike and Liam each dealt their first five cards, their eyes intense as they cried out in unison: "LET'S DUEL!"
- Be sure to read the epic clash between Mike and Liam in the next chapter of Yu-Gi-Oh! Mark of Death! -
