Author has written 16 stories for Digimon, Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, and Sonic the Hedgehog.

Hello to those who've stumbled upon this unique profile!
My name is IrishPanther, but I also go by the nicknames Irish, IP, Pan, or Pantastic.

A few things you should know about me:

- I am 22 year-old male in my last year as an undergrad, studying Marketing and Logistics.
- When I’m not writing, I like to obsess over reality television (my second true love) while trying to keep in shape for swimming now a swammer, but still a fitness nut.
- Outside of that, I’m a video gamer; I mostly stick to sports games.
- I haven’t read much outside of high school, but I’ll recommend The Kite Runner and The Things They Carried.
- I rarely watch new movie releases (really aren’t my thing), but the last three I’ve seen have been impressive (Skyfall, Zero Dark Thirty, Lone Survivor).

For any who are interested, here is my Tumblr page. Enjoy.


History

I stumbled upon this website back during Christmas of 2008. It was when I was skimming through the TV.com forums for Family Guy – a show that I use to adore back in the day – when I spotted a site for an author that’s now inactive. That site led me here, and to a whole new world of reading.

Over the years, I’ve developed some strange fandoms for reading materials. It started with Family Guy, then it became Chowder, and after that, it was a bit of Les Miserables. Fast forward to my freshman year of college, where I started to re-connect with a show from my childhood – Digimon. I spent that whole year reading a lot of good and bad fics, and it wasn’t until the summer after my freshman year that I started my journey as a FanFiction writer.

In my first year, I stuck with Digimon, along with Legend of Zelda – a game series that I grew up playing. After that, I started to have a craving for Sonic – and now I'm writing it.

…And that’s where I’m at now. I’m strictly into Digimon and Sonic the Hedgehog, while bouncing around other fandoms from time to time.


Current Projects

As of now, I have four projects that I'm currently working on: two that have been in the works, one that won't be published until it is completed, and one of my old works that will undergo revision.

  • Digimon 02: Revision -- Digimon -- 17/29 chapters done (Chapter 18 about 5% completed)

  • Getting To Know Your Other Self -- Digimon -- 14/25 chapters done (Chapter 15 is not yet started)

  • Beneath the Surface -- Sonic the Hedgehog -- completed on 3/4/2015!
  • Under One's Control -- Digimon -- completed on 6/11/2014!

  • Once these projects are more written out, they'll be updated. I do plan on finishing these stories during the summertime; it'll just take a lot of motivation for me to do that! Wish me luck! :)

    UPDATE (9/13/2014): Wow...three months and only one chapter completed. Yeah, life tends to hit you real hard when you least expect it. Nothing too serious, though; just a lot of things that brought a lot of stress upon me that wasn't necessary to begin with. Now that I'm back at school, updates will be frequently less, but I'll still be trying to write.

    UPDATE (3/4/2015): Welp...two projects down! My new story is up and will be updated throughout the month. Expect releases of "Getting to Know" within the next few weeks once I'm done revising old chapters / written new chapters out!


    My Stint on Reviewing

    I, IrishPanther, do solemnly swear to review all the fics I read, regardless of the number of reviews, its age, or anything else.

    I have joined the review revolution.

    This pledge comes from a forum that I frequently visit (more on that below). At times, I follow this pledge with ease, while at other times it seems like an enormous chore.

    I see reviewing as something you should only do when you have the intention to do it right. I love giving criticism to stories, to see what works within the realm of your story and what could help your story out in terms of SPAG. I love receiving criticism, for it is with it that we improve vastly as writers.

    Reviewing, to me, is a lot like writing; we suck at it the first time, but over the course of time, we get better as we find our own pattern to review. Let it be known that constructive criticism =/= flaming.

    If you ask me to review your story, there is a good chance that I will do it. Again, it depends on the time that I actually sit down and review.

    ...Oh yeah, if you come across a troll fic, don't review it. Please. You'll feel a lot better.


    My Stint on Favorites

    My favorites so far have been stories that I enjoyed reading.

    Some favorites come from the authors, whose stories that I favorite are some of the better authors that I’ve seen throughout my time on this site. Other favorites come from stories that I enjoyed within my fandom.

    If you are looking for something outside of my fandoms, there is a good chance that these authors might have something in store for you.


    Forums I Visit

    I am a temp!mod for The Reviews Lounge, Too (RLt), so you can see me frequent that forum a lot. I also spend my time over at the Kelviniana (Sonic forum). These two forums are the ones that visit more than anything else.

    I’ve spent my time with Digimon 02: The Clash of Love, Digital Connections, Hylian Tower, and The Council; over the years, however, I’ve grown far from those forums. Maybe another time, I’ll come back and visit.


    And that's all you pretty much have to know what's going on in my world! Until next update, whether story or profile, Pantastic wishes you a glorious day, or evening, or night...whatever the case may be! :)
