A bio, eh?
Well, I'm a guy, born in the year of 1984 (which gives me a somewhat unique gratitude that Orwell's vision hasn't yet come to fruition).
I'm a Jesus Freak, trying my feeble best to serve and honor the man who took all the crap that I've done, all the wrongs that I'm guilty of, and put it on his own account instead of mine, carrying the punishment that I well and truly deserved (and was going to get) instead of me. There's nothing I can ever do to repay that--but there's nothing I'd prefer doing than what he wants for me anyway.
I was homeschooled up through high school, then graduated from the University of Michigan, Dearborn. I'm a computer programmer by trade--a geek, and well proud of it. Personal interests--aside from the obvious writing/reading intrests implied by this very site--include anime, manga, and video games. Which is to say (again) geek, and proud.
Concerning my fanfic tastes, I tend to float from fandom to fandom--there's a whole lot of cool stuff out there, and it's great fun discovering it. As for my own fics, I tend to be a bit on the slow side as updates go, but I'm grimly determined to finish every fic I start.
I've recently started up a little FAQ for the Dark Lords of Nerima series, using this site's forum functionality. Basically, it just covers some of the more obscure interactions between that series and the two series from which it pulls, answers common questions that come up in reviews, etc.
Thanks to the incredible generosity of EternallyLostRyouga, we have these pieces of fanart from The Dark Lords of Nerima: a scene from Chapter One and a scene from Chapter Eleven--both of which he commissioned from the amazingly talented Nadiezda!
Also, ever since this site added the ability to add cover images to fics, I've been toying around with the idea of doing something with that. Nadiezda's art above made for a beautiful cover for the first fic, but it didn't feel right just having one fic with a cover and not the others. So I decided to go ahead and commission pictures for the other two fics in the "Dark Lords" series to match, followed by some of my other stories as well.
The cover art for The Dark Lords Ascendant has been drawn by the awesome pen of sbel02, the results of which you can see in all its original glory here, since just the cut down version really doesn't do it justice.
TV Tropes Page:
Some really awesome folks have set up a TV Tropes page for the Dark Lords series over on the TV Tropes site. I'm super grateful for them putting it together; I know for my part, it's a quite fun experience to read other peoples' analysis of the story, and see what tropes and themes they're seeing and finding in it, so I definitely get a kick out of reading it.
My constant and deep thanks go out to my beta readers, who hack through my rough drafts and bludgeon them into something readable.
Lathis, a truly excellent fanfiction author, and a master of crossovers prominently featuring our favorite Lost Boy. I highly recommend his writings as some of my favorite works around.
Also, my dad, who's been reading my stuff and giving me feedback ever since I was very, very little (and believe me, back then my stories were very, very painful). If it weren't for him suffering through all those missteps, and showing me how to improve, there's no way I'd be writing anything fit for human consumption today.
Fic Status (7/8/2016):
The Dark Lords Ascendant: About halfway through Chapter 14, and I think I'm through most of the really thorny bits. The outline for the remaining parts shouldn't be as tricky to coordinate. (Crossing fingers; we'll see if it really works out that way in practice...)
