Author has written 4 stories for Saints Row, and Dishonored.
I'm MDGeistMD02. That's not my real name, but ya know...
I like fanfiction (good ones anyway) and I like Saints Row and Dishonored (two of the best game worlds out there).

I finally started publishing my first story Being a Saint - Woo-Hoo! Thanks to everyone who helped me, and told me to go for it.

Trying my hand at first person writing in a fic (A Dishonored-based fic centering on a young aristocrat turned Assassin). Ugh! Call it a test of my skills. We'll see how it goes...

Added a one-shot story featuring some of the characters from Being a Saint. My first completed story. Yay! Go me!

Started another Dishonored fic entitled Favors... this time from third person. Lo and behold, its OC-driven as well... -chuckles-
For those who want to see my personal visual takes on some of the Characters from Favors, I have a thread on a small writing site on which I am a moderator. Just copy this and remove the extra spaces:

Let me know what you think. :)
About my Stories:
I tend to take a different approach to writing my fics, as I almost exclusively focus on OCs. While most fanfiction stories revolve around the primary characters of the game/comic/cartoon/etc written, albeit from the author's point of view, I prefer to deal with the secondary or even tertiary characters and tell their stories. (Please understand that I have no problem with other people's versions of these characters - if I did, I wouldn't be here.)
For example, in my Saints Row story 'Being a Saint' the tale is told from the point of view of the regular no-name Saints (although I do name them in my stories), not the Boss or Johnny Gat or even Pierce. I try to let the original story canon stand, but I add details that some people wouldn't necessarily think about (like what's going on with all those Saints when they're not hanging out at the crib).
It's all in the details
I go really in-depth with some of my backgrounds for characters. Sometimes this causes a story to stall or slow down and for this I apologize. I usually have a lot to say about the characters and try to work it in without bogging down the story, but it does happen - I'm trying to improve this, however.
Another thing I enjoy writing is dialogue. I try to make mine sound like actual people talking and I think I do an okay job at it. I don't like a lot of fanfictions wherein the characters don't seem to communicate well - usually its hard to follow what's being said and by whom. That being said, my characters' conversations tend to take up a good portion of the length of my chapters.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to PM me. I work a lot, but will try to get back to any and everyone that takes the time to either review my work or send me a PM.
