I'm just a guy who really enjoys DBZ. My favorite writers are CS Lewis, JK Rowling, Terry Goodkind, JR Tolken, Suzane Collins, and the great DavidStarlingM. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education, and I am the band director/music teacher at a local school. Yeah, that's right. I teach band, but I also teach elementary music--after experiencing a classroom full of hyper K-4 kids I fear nothing in this world--except Vegeta (because it's always good to have a healthy fear of Vegeta) Still, band is my passion and what I love. That, and writing for you guys!
I often wish there was an option to provide the background music for my story(s), as I feel that music can really help envelop the reader into the action. I suggest you put on a good soundtrack, whether it be DBZ or otherwise (Lately i'm really enjoying Skyrim music, so check it out), and see if it helps you picture things as you read them. Also, for me, Dragonball Z just isn't DBZ without Bruce Faulconer's music. When Kai came out and I was watching episodes on my computer, I would have itunes open and have Faulconer's soundtrack playing louder than the other kenji stuff. I even edited in some of the original DBZ tracks to the background of several episodes, audio only.
I often wonder whether I'm a bigger fan of DBZ or Star Wars, but lately with all the writing I've been doing for Bringer of Death, I'm going to have to say DBZ. I try to incorporate all things nerdy and awesome when I can, such as quotes and fitting references. Never underestimate the nerdiness. Obviously, Vegeta is one of my favorite characters of all time and writing him is a great chance to show how deep he is. It isn't that I dislike Goku or Gohan, I just think the Prince of Saiyans has a more compelling story. To that end, BoD is dedicated to seeing Vegeta rise and fall, experiencing some things he never got to in canon. Also, I aim to write Vegeta as true to himself as possible and also provide a story with lots of twists and turns like the original DBZ had.
As the story Bringer of Death has become more popular, I have been privileged to continue working with davidstarlingm. We aim for this story to eventually become the #1 Dragonball Z fanfiction of all time, and we hope you get on board as we head down that road. In all areas, we strive to imitate the original DBZ to the highest level possible. Sometimes our story takes its time, but so did the original DBZ. We also occasionally incorporate some of our favorite things into the series as references, but Toriyama did the same thing here and there. Anyway, if you are reading my profile you've probably already read through the story. But if not, I truly hope you will give it a look through. I want it to be timeless, the kind of story that you look back and think...wow, that couldn't have happened any other way. And do us a favor and leave some reviews. With each chapter you read, it's the least you can do, right? Thanks.
