Author has written 6 stories for Kingdom Hearts, Team Fortress 2, Walking Dead, and Invader Zim.

UPDATE: I am CAMPING until give or take the 20th of AUGUST. WIFI will be SCARCE. IF I DON'T REPLY FOR WEEKS IT IS NOT ME BEING A JERK, IT IS ME ROAMING THE WILDERNESS AND PUNCHING THE LOCAL FAUNA TO DEATH FOR SHITS AND GIGGLES. I'll chat with ya whenever I can. :3

Alright, few people I've managed to hook as a fanbase. Despite joining a (reasonably) long time ago, it's only been 2016 that I've resumed posting ANYTHING. I've quite lenient lately with the very few stories I've posted over the last few years. Reasons?

Well, once upon a time, I would've told you that it was all thanks to an existential crisis preoccupying me, and a massive defeatist attitude on top of being a perfectionist. My disposition lead to massive flops between a marathon of creativity and wads upon wads of writer's block.

These days, I think that might be part of it (as well something else I had for a long time that I'll get into later), but the heart of the problem is that I'm LAZY.

But that's not why you're here, is it?: "What about WRITING? Working on those, like, three on-going narratives you just stopped updating without a howdy-do?"

Well here's the thing, amigos. I refuse to delete anything. Yes, even the story where there are immediate continuity errors in the first chapter(Christ, why do you all like Back to Boston, again? I mean, objectively, it's pretty shit. I don't get it. Surely there's better Scout angst out there?).

Now, why would I do that?

For a long, long time, I refused to write anything. On top of laziness, part of the reason behind it was plain-old fear of you guys. The people I looked up to had all this work out there that hovered so much closer to a state of perfection than I could ever dream of reaching, and all I could think of was how much I sucked in comparison. And I realize now that they once sucked as much as I did -- they were just too embarrassed to let anyone see their "failures", and thus, too embarrassed to let others see how far they'd come! A vicious circle indeed!

...Plus, a lot of stories I once loved got deleted, too. So sad. :(

So, uh... Yeah -- never gonna delete my stuff. But that doesn't mean I MUST finish cringe-worthy older work. Even Our Dear Gravel Wars, and lord knows how passionate I was about that one. I still am, but I'm thinking I might need to restart that one if I ever do return, because... ...Yeesh. 'Them adjectives. And Engie's such a bitch in it to boot. XD

Really, I've put the slammer on BS(lol), and kind of ODGW as well as BtB(I really don't wanna let the former go. But that one's gonna need some decent-sized revamping, I believe, and it may be a looooong time before that one is complete). Do I have any decent-sized fic-projects planned? The answer is yes, but life is kind of hectic, so we'll see what's in store for us.

Right, let the questions commence, kidnapped narrator persona I invented!

I'm tied up.

Yup. You got any inquiries, buddy?

Uh... What the hell is your username from.

Well, when I was about ten, and just getting into writing, I made up a little story about a guy named Koro, who's memory-less life, as it turned out, was a lie(o noezzz). His military section was evil and controlling him, and he had to use a weapon called the Raven Blade to save the universe and all that jazz.
It was much stupider than it sounds, with every other plot-point containing an excessive plot hole.
Bonus; it ripped every good plot point from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2.

Personally, I like to be called Raven or Blade equally. Either way's fine.

I don't wanna interview you. This place smells weird and I just wanna watch movies.

Don't think I don't sympathize, buddy! It's okay, though -- Here's a pre-set list of questions to ask!

...Why didn't you give me this list in the first place.

...That's a really good point. Why didn't I give you them?

Who cares... Let's see... 'wHA kiNnA storees-'

My handwriting's not that atrocious... Is it?

Yeah, actually, it is.

Oh.

Movin' on... '-cANN e ESSPECT?'

I cover a fairly wide range, I think. Drama, horror, tragedy, crack comedy, hurt comfort, and even romance... I change personalities at the drop of a hat, or so the saying goes, so many different ideas will incoorporate themselves into different tones and themes. I like drama a lot, though. Madness, too. It's fun to work with. I might even start abusing insanity as a subject in the future, actually.

'Yoo uSED 2 dEsPEse'... ...Yaoi? Isn't that the term for like... Gay porn, for weaboos, or something? ...'dO u st1ll hatE it'?

Nope. Don't hate Yuri either anymore.

Sometimes, you sit down and have a good, long thought about your life. You look back at all the hate you held for illogical things, and think; would you have shipped those two characters, if the genders weren't the same?

Yeah, you would've.

And you continue that path of thought. Yeah, friendships between two people of the same sex can exist... Same way a friendship between two people of different sexes can exist. What the hell was wrong with you, hating love because two of the genitals involved were of the same model? It's beautiful. The way those characters interact is beautiful.

You also kinda start to realize that you're getting progressively gayer every year, too. That's a thing.

And then your friends convert you to their ships and you're suddenly like shipping trash DON'T BEFRIEND PEOPLE ON TUMBLR IT WILL BE THE END OF YOU.

'SHIIIIIIIIIPZ'?

"I CAN'NAE WRITE 'EM ALL DOWN, CAPTAIN! I DUN'T HAVE THA POWAH!!!"

'wHiCH sERieZ do u l1ek'?

Gyaaah. There's so much more. Brain's a bit clogged right now, so I'll probably more stuff later as time goes on.

'h0W muhc age is U'?

Started at thirteen. Now I'm six... seventeen.

Seventeen.

Right.

...Fuck, that wasn't supposed to happen.

Anyway, stop exaggerating my hand-writing, please.

Meh, okay. Do you write OCs?

Only when I feel I have to for a fic. Like... Say no one in the series can fill the role. Then I'll try to come up with the most balanced character possible and incorporate them as well as I can. Usually, such OCs would take a step back for the canon character. I probably will refrain from OC romance as well, unless it really fits with the plot and I feel it adds substance. Bonus points if the story is satire.

Can I go yet?

Hmm... Okay. Begone.

Anyway, long story short, I'm a bit all over the place and a bit hypocritical. Hope you'll like what I put out there anyway.

...Yes, I am this annoying in real life, too. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

To the End of the Road reviews
Duck couldn't walk. Duck could barely talk. Everything hurt. But Duck could certainly listen. Clementine was right there, and she'd be there when this was all over, since heroes never died. And if Duck fancied himself or his friend as anything, it was as the best heroes ever. One-shot, pre-Duck's death. Cluck if you squint, but not necessarily.

Our Dear Gravel Wars reviews
It was never nice to be sent to your death, and the Engineer had the honor of suffering this first hand. Due to a mistake that ruined his life, the Texan must fight as a mercenary within the Gravel Wars, without question. But he's a moral man in a corrupt world, and it's a long time until his debt's paid. The road's betrothed to hardship, that's certain. AU younger Scout & Pauling

Of Birds and Oranges reviews
Stuck at the Motor-Inn while Lee's out hunting, Clementine spends some time in the chilling hands of Autumn, armed with nothing to entertain herself besides a pencil-crayon sketch, and an earful of harmless, friendly chatter from fellow child survivor, Duck. (Found this in the bowels of my computer files. Nothing happens, really. Rated T for a lil' swearing.)

However, upon receiving a letter from his father, urging him to return to Boston to be with his Ma in her final hours, Scout's forced to return to his family whilst facing some rather troublesome situations in the place he used to call home.

Broken Strings reviews
Myde... Just mentioning the name made him feel terribly empty. The fact the name meant so much to him, yet nothing came from it... The fact something deep down in him urged for that time when he was that person, a time when things were sweeter, a time when he was whole... But how could he know all the experiences of Myde, if he had almost no real recollection of it? DEAD
