So, I've finally decided to get around to making a profile, mainly because I really need somewhere to rant about fanfic stuff, or just to post my thoughts and ideas about fanfic stuff. I've been planning to actually write stuff in my profile for at least half a year (probably more like since mid-2013), but I was way too lazy to actually do it, and starting is always the hardest part of anything for me.

It is highly likely that my profile will eventually get very long because of the large number of things I know I will write about here. In anticipation of this, in order to make my profile more navigable for both myself and anyone who reads it I will be organizing this page by section, and will have a table of contents. In order to jump to any particular section simply copy the section number and/or title and use your browser's find function to search for it. So, without further ado, the table of contents is below.

FF.net is being a bit of a pain when it comes to some stuff in my profile, so I'm blaming the web page for some of the typographical, syntax, and layout errors. The website doesn't seem to want to cooperate fully. and I have also noticed that there are some grammatical corrections I have made that FF.net simply doesn't want ot actually change, so I apologize if there are any mistakes.

    Section 1: Who is Walk The Max Planck?

    The amount of information I put in here will change over time as I add more stuff. If you want to get to know me better than what's here in my profile, or if you want to be friends then please feel free to PM me; I'd be happy to talk, get to know you, and tell you more about myself. If I write enough stuff in this section I may group things into even more separate subsections, but that will require a lot more information than I've currently included.

    1.1: Personal Details

    Real Name: Michael F. Tilbrook (no it's not Max)

    Gender: Male

    Date of Birth (Age): July 30, 1990 (nearly 24)

    Place of Birth: Women's College Hospital, Toronto, Ontario, Canada (I felt like being very specific by including the Hospital even).

    Current Residence: Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

    Occupation: Student at the University of Waterloo, majoring in Honours Mathematical Physics

    Background: 2nd generation Canadian, i.e., my parents were born in Canada, but my grandparents were all immigrants. My ancestry is English, Irish, probably some Scottish, Norwegian, Hungarian, one of Hungary's neighbouring countries that I can't remember, and considering that Britain was basically the rape and pillage destination of continental Europe during medieval times, probably a bit of the rest of Western Europe through my British side. Basically, I have the standard dog's breakfast, everything but the kitchen sink mix of European that most European's have.

    Physical description: 5' 10.5" (179cm); about 160lb (72.5kg); relatively slim build and long limbs; caucasian; green eyes; ear-length, medium brown, slightly wavy hair. If you want more detail than that, then check out my facebook profile for pictures. (Speaking of which...)

    Facebook: Michael F. Tilbrook. Feel free to send me a friend request and check out my profile, although you probably won't see much if you're not on my friends list due to my privacy settings.

    1.2: About Me

    Why my screen name is Walk The Max Planck if my name isn't Max:
    I am a physics major, and so am unsurprisingly pretty into physics. Max Planck is a famous physicist of the early 20th century who is essentially the father of quantum theory, and thus quantum mechanics, since he was the first person to propose the quantization of energy. My screen name is simply a combination of the phrase "walk the plank" and the name Max Planck. Similarly, I also commonly use the screen name HeisenIceBerg, a combination of "iceberg" and Heisenberg, another one of the founders of quantum mechanics.

    Fanfics genres I follow: I almost exclusively read Naruto and Naruto crossover fanfics, with non-Naruto fanfics I read being few and far between.

    I'll add more stuff about myself (music, sports, hobbies, interests, likes, dislikes, etc.) at a later date, but this is good enough for now.

    Section 2: Naruto Universe and Fanfics Discussion

    This section is where I'll write about any of my ideas, views, thoughts, rants, or other stuff about the Narutoverse and Naruto fanfics. I'll put each separate discussion in it's own subsection, and if there are enough related topics then I will create group them into subsections and subsubsections.

    Note: For now I am simply listing all of the different topics that I eventually want to write about, so that I will have a list to reference; I will get around to actually writing the discussion for all of them eventually, but for now some or all of them may be empty.

    2.1: Konoha and Naruto

    The subject of this section is pretty obvious: Naruto's relationship with the people of Konoha, and how the people of Konoha treat him, specifically during his childhood. However, while the subject may be obvious it is anything but simple. Properly understanding and characterizing the various aspects of this relationship requires at least a partial understanding of human psychology and nature. It is also necessary to be able to look at the situation from the differing perspectives of multiple parties, objectively view the situation, separate oneself from any emotional attachment to Naruto, and be realistic in the portrayal of people, rather than portraying people as irrationally evil or stupid. Not having that partial understanding or the ability to do the aforementioned things tends to lead to some of the more implausible cliches we see in Naruto fanfics. A lack of due thought and creativity, as well as bad story telling skills, does not help the situation in those cases.

    The first two topics (2.1.1 and 2.1.2) are my attempt at evaluating Konoha's relationship with Naruto in a realistic and well thought out way, using my accumulated understanding of human psychology and nature, while also following the guidelines I've set out above. The next 3 topics (2.1.3-2.1.5) are my view on several prominent cliches, along with a listing of the flaws in them, why they are unrealistic, and which of the components necessary for properly evaluating the Konoha-Naruto relationship were absent in the creation of said bad cliches. The last topic of this section (2.1.5) is what I believe to be a reasonable explanation for why nobody in canon seems to figure out who Naruto's parents are.

  • 2.1.1: How Konoha's People View Naruto, and the Psychology of Fear
  • 2.1.2: Konoha's Treatment of Naruto
  • 2.1.3: The Horrendously Asinine Mob Cliche
  • 2.1.4: "Civilians Make Naruto's Life a Living Hell" is Ludicrous
  • 2.1.5: The Utter Absurdity of a Civilian Council Making Naruto's Life Awful
  • 2.1.5: Why Nobody Guesses Naruto's Heritage
  • (I don't know why the way I wrote this turned out to be like an essay on the topic, but that's just how it came out. Don't expect it to always be like this, but don't be surprised if it is; that's just the way I write sometimes.)

    2.1.1: How Konoha's People View Naruto, and the Psychology of Fear

    Start Discussion

    Section 3: General Fanfic and Writing Discussion

    This section serves the same purpose as Section 2: Naruto Universe and Fanfics Discussion, but for general, and specifically non-Naruto, writing and fanfic discussion. This section is organized the same way that Section 2 is.

    Note: For now I am simply listing all of the different topics that I eventually want to write about, so that I will have a list to reference; I will get around to actually writing the discussion for all of them eventually, but for now some or all of them may be empty.

    Section 4: My Stories: Current and Ideas

    This section lists ideas I have for stories, as well as any stories I am currently working on or writing, along with the status of any story I've posted. Currently I have lots of ideas, but I haven't actually started writing any stories. For some of my story ideas I have planned a lot, while for others I only have a general idea. I'm hoping to actually get around to writing something at some point, but starting something (anything really) is always the hardest part for me. All story titles are preliminary until posting, and even then are subject to change.

    As noted above, I will eventually fill in all of these sections with information and discussion.

    Whirlpools Among the Eddies by CRed1988 reviews
    Leaves spiral in the soft eddy as Naruto meets Karin in the Forest of Death. From that moment on, the two bearing the Clan name carried with them the fate of the Uzumaki and would be forever entwined.

    Better Left Unsaid by Kenchi618 reviews
    Mizuki never got to shoot his mouth off at Naruto the night he took the Scroll of Seals. Other than skipping a half-manic monologue from him what exactly did this change for everyone's favorite blonde ninja? Who knows? Rated M for language/later events.

    After the Rain by Quill Q reviews
    Naruto had never thought she would end up in the past. Not even the one who caused her to go back had anticipated she'd be dragged along for the ride. The Kyūbi had been trying to save himself - not her. She'd once said that the hero always arrive late, but this was quite the opposite. Naruto would be very, very early this time. (Fem Naruto story)

    Pareidolia by Ziltoid reviews
    Stubbornly, the Kyuubi refused to come to Naruto's aid in the fight against Shukaku. But, being merely half of what he once was, Kurama's decision has unexpected consequences. Only the Rikudou Sennin is able to offer Kurama a way out over this deadlock… but what rises from the ashes is stronger than anyone could have anticipated.

    Uzushiogakure Reborn by Mewrlise reviews
    Death was boring. At least for her. Seriously, nothing happened. Not that she was complaining. The cards she was dealt were not bad. So there was nothing stopping her from playing. What? Was she meant to follow a script? No thank you, life was not meant to be lived that way. [SI/OC] 21 March 2017 Happy Birthday Michiko!

    Kaze no Uzu by A238 reviews
    We all need a home. The elements are no different. The wandering Wind wanted a place to rest its head, so when an unholy force descended on October 10th, Wind chose a human. But the stirring of one stirs the others. As the coming days are steeped in ancient blood and older conflict, the world darkens. But Naruto won't face it alone. He has the Wind by his side.

    One Eye, Full of Wisdom by MrBright01 reviews
    Kakashi survived his losses in spirit as well as in body, and having learned both wisdom and intellect from his experiences, he now seeks to pass those traits on to his students. Story emphasis is on tactical fighting, mind games, adventure, and the occasional bout of humor. GenFic, no story stealing OC's or creepy romance between children. Current Arc: The End of Team 7.

    In one world, after defeating his brother, Itachi Uchiha dropped dead, victim of a mysterious disease, and the future of the ninja world was set for the worse. However, in another, Itachi was not sick. From this small difference, many changes will spring, and many plans will be overturned.

    Naruto: Great Clan Days by Kenchi618 reviews
    Senju Hashirama's dream to unify all of the warring clans of his country under one village remained just that; a dream. Generations later, the ninja world still consists of pure clan affiliation. Enacting peace through understanding has fallen to the side. A catalyst is needed for any kind of change to occur, and it is all found in a little boy... for better or for worse. AU.

    End Game Version R by Kur0Kishi reviews
    There were very few things that could rile a 25 year old Naruto Uzumaki up. He was perfectly content to sit in his home, work his normal job, study at a normal school, and in his free time, tinker (read: upgrade in a potentially life endangering manner) with whatever happened to catch his interest. This obviously did not include Devils, or Angels, or Fallen Angels.
