Author has written 17 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.

Who Am I?

- I am a 23 year-old male, owner of a bachelor's degree in business and working within logistics / IT.
- Former reality television lover - toned it down, will still watch via YouTube.
- Former competitive swimmer (was one for 15 years); now trying to get back to a more structured fitness routine.
- Owner of a PS3 that sticks to sports games while trying to branch out (hopefully...)
- More of a reader than a movie watched - can recommend The Kite Runner, The Things They Carried, Walk Two Moons, I Am The Messenger, and Did You Ever Have a Family...for now. I still have five books on the shelf to dive into!

For anyone who is interested in seeing my other views on life, check out my Tumblr page - the name's pantasticwonder.


I stumbled upon this website back during Christmas of 2008. It was when I was skimming through the forums for Family Guy – a show that I use to adore back in the day – when I spotted this site from an author that is now inactive. A new world of reading was suddenly opened for me to dive into.

During the years of 2008-2011, I branched out into fandoms that I was interested in. What began with Family Guy became Chowder, then Regular Show, then a bit of Les Miserables. Fast forward to my freshman year of college - also in 2011 - where I started to re-connect with a show from my childhood – Digimon. I spent that whole academic year reading a lot of good and bad fics, and during the summer after my freshman year, I officially began 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 stories for it in the fandom.

…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 -- 21/29 chapters done (Chapter 22 about 50% completed); editing 1-17 - not started

  • Getting To Know Your Other Self -- Digimon -- completed on 10/17/2015!

  • 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 (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!

    UPDATE (5/18/2015): Besides an update on my profile, an update on my life should be given...just graduated and now job hunting. So writing's been on the backburner once again. Hopefully this summer will be kind to me and allow me to write the way I was when I first joined...

    UPDATE (8/26/2015): This summer has come and gone, and while it was a busy and stressful one for me, I've been getting back into the swing of things within my craft of writing and reviewing. I have published a new one-shot that is a rewrite of one of my older stories that have since been deleted from this site.

    UPDATE (10/17/2015): has been going great for me at the moment! I recently got a job, and that's been alright for me so far, but most importantly - now with a steady job and a place to call my own - I've finally gotten back into writing. Not only have I recently published two one-shots (with the possibility of one more on the way...), but if you look at my 'projects' that I've been working on, you can see that I'm done with one of my long-running multi-chapter projects! Only one more to take on, but that won't be until later on down the line...for now, I'm focusing on revising Getting to Know, and then releasing the new chapters soon.

    ...And I hope that y'all have been enjoying my Paint "masterpieces," if you can call them that.

    UPDATE (3/1/2016): changes to my profile - still living, still trying to get myself into the habit of writing and reviewing on a regular basis...

    UPDATE (6/30/2016): more profile updates, and a bit of reflecting on my end...

    I've been on this site as an author for four years now, and the growth I have had as both a writer and a reviewer has been remarkable! From the authors that I've met and made connections with - I truly appreciate your presence throughout my journey, and I look forward to meeting more people and helping them out throughout their respective journey.

    Now - with that out of the way, the progress I have made on 02: Revision is all thanks to an investment I made in joining CampNano during the month of April. We'll see what July has in store, as I progress on with work and the summertime.

    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 will stay with me for years to come (the RLt). 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 have 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

    As of now, you can probably find me over at The Writing Virtues whenever real life doesn't get in my way.

    I used to frequent Digimon 02: The Clash of Love, Digital Connections, Hylian Tower, Kelviniana, and The Reviews Lounge, Too (RLt).

    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! :)
