This is a total rewrite of my profile. I am Balin Lord of Moria, named after Balin the Dwarf of Thorin and Company, who tried, unsuccessfully, to reclaim Moria, or Khazad-dûm, from the Orcs. My new avatar has nothing to do with him. It is the emblem of the Diversity Alliance from the Young Jedi Knights books. The Diversity Alliance was a violent, anti-human terrorist organization, but I still like its story because many of its members saw it as an idealistic, pro-alien movement, in response to the anti-alien racism of the Galactic Empire. And while I love humans in the real world, I'm very pro-alien, pro-clone, pro-woman, and pro-droid in Star Wars and The Clone Wars. In a way, my interest in the Diversity Alliance reminds me of my fascination with the Nation of Islam, Malcolm X, and how they fought for black civil rights through separatism, though the NOI is not a terrorist organization. This doesn't mean, though, that I think black and white people (or humans and aliens) should not be integrated together. We all need to learn to get along. In the case of the Diversity Alliance, I just like to see the aliens get back some of their dignity, just like the black people who followed Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, and still follow their legacies today. I also admire the non-human races in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth books, like the Elves, the Ents, and most of all the Hobbits and the Dwarves, the most unique of them all, and I also love the talking beasts in The Chronicles of Narnia. It's interesting to see sentient animals in a Christian story. I don't see why the "chosen legends" always (or almost always) have to be human, or why the "Chosen One" always has to be human, male, and white.
I'm currently working on "The Perils of Rosella Drabbles," a set of drabbles about King's Quest IV: The Perils of Rosella, as well as "From Clone Wars to Rebels," a fictitious TV documentary where a fictional celebrity interviews survivors of The Clone Wars about their thoughts and hopes concerning the future animated series, Star Wars: Rebels. If I can think of a good enough scenario for this idea, I might write a story about the rumored, but not confirmed, future TV show, Star Wars: Young Jedi. I'm also in the middle of one or two other fanfics, and I still try to think of some other creative scenarios every day. Maybe sometime I'll write something about the Diversity Alliance, or about a made-up equivalent of it that's more peaceful and less "supreme."
My current favorite Star Wars characters to write about are the six younglings from the "Young Jedi" story arc, and the five astromech and pit droids of D-Squad, possibly because they're some of the most lovable characters in the Clone Wars, apart from Ahsoka Tano, and Barriss Offee before her unfortunate corruption. I also like the clones a lot, particularly ones like Cut Lawquane, Gregor, Gree, Cody, Fives, 99, and of course, Rex. When I feel like writing about something besides Star Wars, my favorite place to go is King's Quest, because I grew up with that series of games, and they're some of the best I've ever played. I've already written several KQ stories, including a few crossovers. I may possibly return to writing Middle-earth fan fictions someday, as well.
Every single story begins with an idea
I copied this from Samara13's profile page.
Although I've written plenty of stories with long or medium-length chapters, I detest writing for long periods of time. I have little patience for writing lengthy stories. My favorite writings are drabbles, vignettes, mini-sagas, and flash fictions, because they're so short. If you agree with this, copy and paste this into your profile.
I have also developed a strong interest in the police, especially the American police. In fact, the police are some of my most admired people in the world, selflessly protecting and serving the public so the rest of us can hopefully live our lives in relative safety. I've even heard it said that cops, particularly spiritual ones, are believed to be God's servants and representatives of justice in the government. Partly for this reason, I requested that ff.net add a new sub-category called "Police Quest" under the "Games" category a little while back. For those of you who don't know it, Police Quest was a series of classic computer adventure games where you play a realistic police officer named Sonny Bonds as he spends his time either handling traffic violators in uniform or going through police procedurals in plainclothes. He plays by the rules of the police force in the fictitious city of Lytton, California, and brings down the violators, suspects and criminals like a model cop in the real world would. I've been writing a bunch of stories about Sonny and his fellow police officers in the games, and I plan to write more in the future. I've even written a few PQ stories about some of the criminals from the game series.
I also made some requests for other new sub-categories which I've been diligently writing stories for, too. They include: three other computer adventure game series', "Manhunter," "Leisure Suit Larry" and "Space Quest," an individual computer adventure game called "Blue Force," which is another police simulator, and a couple of cop movies, "Maniac Cop" and "Cop and a Half." The number of stories I've written for those archives is smaller than those I've written for Police Quest, but I'm still enjoying them, as well. If any of you who read this profile are interested in any of these sub-categories, I invite them to write stories of their own under them, or to review some of my stories under them.
