Author has written 12 stories for Mass Effect, Halo, Warframe, and Star Wars.

Profile visitors, followers, fans and haters, you have come to read the profile of John Sandman, a Latvian fanfiction author.

So, I hail from Europe, from a member state of the European Union called the Latvian Republic, which is the geographical heart of Europe. I've been a gamer since the day I first saw a computer game, back when I was merely four years old. My passion for gaming had led me to where my desire to unleash my personal imagination of my favorite universes was finally let loose. I had been studying English since I was five years old. I'm an A-level language speaker in my country and I rarely make mistakes.

When it comes down to my character attributes, they go down a bit like this (coming from men and women): cute, dull, fun, lovely, interesting, protective, nice, a huge a-hole at times, friendly, talkative, romantic, intelligent. When one wants to know deep secrets - I have a case of depression. Nothing suicidal (Nothing related to self-harming either), though the idea occasionally pops in my mind, however, that isn't going to stop me from living my life.

Now then... I have made a few original characters to fill the boots of the main protagonist of a fanfic. Thus far, my most succesful OC is Captain John Sandman. Here's a list of who I've made that have a huge impact:

Captain John 'Bearslayer' Sandman, SPARTAN-IV prototype supercommando
Zealot Rala 'Thenam(ee)
Lieutenant Commander Alice Taylor, SPARTAN-IV supercommando
Jessica, the AI onboard the UNSC Infinite Dawn
Commander Lowell
Captain William 'Scarecrow' Taylor
Captain (later Admiral) John Harper (later John'Zorah)
Clone ARC Commander, ARC-2001 ''Stealer''
Unnamed Sangheili Major

Why do I use OC's so much? Far more flexible and easier than to write actual characters and risk making them OOC. That, and developing your own character is far more interesting than writing a character that's limited by canon.

Now then, I'm a huge fan of the Halo universe. I've seen Halo since the moment I first saw a video game (It was Halo), and since then I was fascinated with this sci-fi universe. My passion for it has never been low, and with the release of Halo 4, the love for Halo has grown tenfold and Halo 5: Guardians promises to be the best Halo yet. Hoorah for Halo!

I have a cooperation in storywriting with Melanie Campbell. At times, I cooperate with Insanity Gained.

I don't accept pointless reviews that bash my stories with opinions, threats and suggestions how the story should go down according to you. I write whatever the hell I want that's within reasonable limits of the fandom I write for. If you so desperately want to tell someone how a story should go down - write it your self.

I am a Latvian, from the Republic of Latvia. If Fanfiction is showing any other country (when I haven't written down why it's been changed) then it's most likely Fanfiction derping around.

This is my DeviantART account on which I may occasionally upload some test stories, or OC biographies:

That's about it about me.
