Author has written 7 stories for Minecraft, and Total War series.
Welcome to my profile! Whoever you are, I'm glad you've stopped by to take a look! You're more than welcome to take your time and look around, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns! I welcome any sort of communication, even flaming (because you're just wasting your own time). If you'd like a beta or if you desire critique on something, I'd be more than happy to oblige! So long as it does not contain Youtubers...more on that later.
Currently my status is that of a college student and as such writing takes a backseat to studying, working, reading, partying and sleeping. Those who expect constant updates from me are either too demanding or are clearly not college students. Probably the latter, but I'm not gonna make assumptions. Let's just say that when you try reading Moliere while pounding Jaegermeister you have become the atypical college student.
I joined the Minecraft fanfiction community way back when, quite a long time ago. I'm old now, and crochety (I suppose). Back when I joined, there was hardly any life in the Minecraft community, quite surprisingly. Since then, I am happy to see that there are many users and writers who have given life to this archive. All information is here:

Political Views: Everyone in politics is retarded (sorry, but I despise them)
Religious Views: No religion for me, but I'll tolerate anybody so long as you aren't violent or mean about it
PSA: Constructive criticism is not flaming/bullying. If I sound negative or point out flaws in your work, it is because I am trying to help you, not trying to flame you. If your writing is bad, and YES, your writing can be bad, I will tell you that but I am not just going to leave it at that. I will attempt to help you fix it. DO NOT think I am trying to put you down, DO NOT presume that I hate you or your story, DO NOT try to argue or wrangle pointlessly with me, and DO NOT report me for bullying (because I'm not bullying you and you're just being stupid). I get really peeved when someone complains about constructive criticism, so PLEASE try to take it well. Nobody likes being told that their writing needs work, but it's going to benefit you in the future.
A LIST OF MY STORIES, and updates(PAST, PRESENT, AND MAYBE FUTURE)
The Gathering Storm(Minecraft): A story about one miner, the rise of the Enderdragon, a devastating rebellion and the aftermath of all of this. My SECOND favorite of my stories. FINISHED.
Blood Money(Minecraft): Canceled, due to a lack of ideas and my general dislike of how it was going after Chapter 15/16. I guess there's not much to say of it. CANCELED.
Gone(Minecraft): A bleak, but not completely hopeless tale of a group of refugees beset by the chaos that follows a series of natural disasters in the Minecraft world who end up in a furious civil war between two factions. Like Gathering Storm before it, it incorporates modern technology into the world of Minecraft. My FAVORITE of my stories. FINISHED
Broken Realities(Minecraft, collab): A collaboration story with Mellifluousness, HPE24, LexiLopezi, KatrinaLinden and xoxLexixox (sorry if I messed up any of those names!) Concerning the main characters of each writer, BR is a light-hearted, humorous descent into a great adventure where heroes must work together and villains plot against one another, set in an alternate Minecraft. CANCELED.
The Undying(Minecraft, oneshot): A somewhat depressing and gloomy fic about an immortal and immobilized Enderman who watches time pass him and eventually overtake him, as he is forgotten by the world. It was just a nice little thing to write. FINISHED
Whispers(Minecraft): Set hundreds of years after Gone, Whispers concerns a giant Minecraft virtual reality server, which millions call home. In this feudal melting pot, dark forces and great lords vie for power, in a land where secrets never stay hidden and whispers corrupt those who listen... FINISHED
A Lion Against the World(Total War series): Just started, have it plotted out, hope for the best. Currently on hold due to few people on site and my lack of interest. Follows the rise of early Venice and the conflict between them and their rivals, the medieval city-state of Milan. ON INDEFINITE HIATUS.
Dusk(Minecraft): Continuation of the story put forth in Whispers. Dusk follows Matt, Sora, Leon and other characters as they struggle to survive the onset of winter and the onslaught of a menagerie of enemies hellbent on bringing their own hegemony to the world. Secrets come to light and various powers who once remained on the fringe of the conflict leap in to claim their own stake of Connaughtsshire. ONGOING.
The Peacekeepers(FTL): The Federation is broken up by war; the peaceful Engi are beset on all sides by aggressive neighbors. One small ship is all the beleaguered Federation can spare to keep the Engi frontier safe. Space is a dark and dangerous place, and the tiny crew of the old Kestrel-class ship Vorbis are about to experience the collapse of law and order firsthand. FUTURE
High Water Mark(Minecraft): Part of the Gone/Whispers universe. The earthquake and tidal wave have struck Coastal City; the once-thriving metropolis is ravaged by natural disasters, and even the army finds it difficult to keep law and order. From the perspective of a middle-class accountant who watches mobs creep back in and society unravel as the government slowly abandons Coastal City. FUTURE
The Quagmire(Minecraft): Part of the Gone/Whispers universe. Taking place after the second story, a young resident of the NMR, looking for inspiration for a novel, travels to "Sin City", one of the west coast free cities, to settle down. He finds love, sex, music and life there but also finds a brewing storm that threatens to pit two mighty cities together and torch the entire coast with war. There is no grand prophecy or heroic moment; it's the story of one man, and his own life in the middle of a chaotic quagmire. FUTURE
Unnamed, Unofficial Project No. 2(Mount&Blade): Standalone story for Mount&Blade: Warband. Details almost nonexistent at this point.
Through FanFiction, I have met dozens upon dozens of people of different race, nationality, gender and sex. Many of them were friendly and open, others...well, we won't speak of them. These people I can call friends, and some of them are my most trusted friends:
The Write Philosophia
I have come to know and love every single one of you, with all of your quirks and unique traits! I love you guys, every single one of you!
EDIT: Removed KatrinaLinden from the list. I trusted her, and she failed me. I am disappointed. Very, very disappointed.
MINECRAFT FANFICTION: PET PEEVES
There are many Minecraft fanfictions out there now. I would personally like to thank FullMoonFlygon for setting this community in motion, but I'm certain it was a combination of people, including her, who brought life to this fandom. However, with life comes a whole BUNCH of cliches. These are just my opinion: don't let it stop you from writing, but don't expect me to read your fic if it includes these:
MY NAME IS STEVE: Oh, how original. You named your character after the unofficial Mojang name for a character whose personality is left ENTIRELY UP TO YOU. Seriously, get creative! Don't just name him Steve, give him blue pants and a blue shirt and send him on his way! Be original! That was the entire idea behind such a vague character. At least come up with a DIFFERENT name.
WAKING UP IN A DESERTED LAND, GOES TO PUNCH SOME WOOD: Seriously. Seriously. Seriously? This has been done a thousand times, literally. Don't wake up in some deserted land and go punch a tree! Be more creative, more actiony, LESS CLICHE. Introduce a villain, whatever. Just...be original. Don't do this for the thousandth time, okay?
YOUTUBERS: No, no, no, no, NO. Just no. No Yogscast, no Deadlox, no Skydoes, no CaptainSparklez. Just no. These are real people, try to respect them. As for those of you who write these stories, obviously you're free to do so, but I do not like your work, it's as simple as that, just because of the content. Like I said above, Youtuber idolization is unhealthy and pathetic. I don't care if that offends you, idolization of anything is like that. Please don't.
OVERUSED MODS/MODPACKS: Specifically looking at Mob Talker. I'm tired of Tekkit and Yogbox stuff, but there are ways you can put your own spin on that, and it's alright. But Mob Talker is always monster princesses fall in love with a charming main character and they go and do sex stuff. Just no. I don't like that. But hey, keep it to the M section, and I'll just look the other way.
Anyway. That's all! (No copypastas because I hate them with a BURNING, BURNING passion.)
