Author has written 2 stories for Pokémon.
In case anyone has trouble with the name "Veovis," here's how to pronounce it: Vey-oh-vis
Those of you looking at the profile picture, yes. That is me. At the top of a roller coaster lift hill. The picture was taken in the fall of 2014 during Cedar Point's Halloweekends. It was the last week that my girlfriend at the time was going to be in America, and she wanted to take some pictures in the park. So I suggested we go to the tops of the lift hill of Corkscrew as we both worked at that ride. Corkscrew has some great views at the top despite it not being very tall. I expect that it is due to the fact that it is in the middle of the park and just tall enough to get above the treeline.
Whatever. I enjoy being a ride operator. It is something that I am good at and take pride in. My job as an operator is to ensure the safety of the guests attending the park, while simultaneously ensuring that they enjoy themselves. Accidents happen and it is my job to minimize them. The job is very demanding of me, very time consuming, and downright infuriating sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I've seen the stereotypical ride op who hates everything about the park. (Shoutout to you, Dorney Park's Talon operator.) I've seen the operators who just don't care *cough* Carowinds! *cough* I've seen the ones who are downright rude. (Fury 325 inaugural crew, again Carowinds.) But to me, being a ride op is like a club. Your crew is your family for the summer. At least in seasonal parks up north. You spend your days and nights off with them. You binge ride to find the best seats, the best riding position, the best time to ride. You visit other parks with them and meet up in the off season.
Being a part of this group of people has helped me immensely. I, when I started this profile, was very timid. I was afraid to talk to people because I had a constant fear of betrayal. I still do, but ever since I have started operating roller coasters, I found that there were many people of many different stripes, both politically and economically, all just trying to get along. My fears of people have since abated significantly, and I can say with confidence that I am no longer the coward I was. Nobody ever called me as such, but upon reflection; I know that the word, coward, is an apt description of me only 3 years ago.
Unfortunately, being a ride op isn't a very high paying job, and where I live is only seasonal work. So I will have to leave that behind. But I know that I am a better person because of that job.
To my readers of Darkness Returns to Normalcy:
I am so sorry that this story had to end. But there were several reasons for it.
1) It was getting painful to write. Not like I would burst into tears, it just had the feel of an essay that you really don't want to write.
2) I'm starting work up at Cedar Point soon, my time to write will be minimal at best. Most of that time, I'll just want to sleep.
3) Veovis is no super hero. Even with (spoilers sweetie) he was still (more spoilers)
There are smaller reasons but keep in mind that I will update this story, redoing chapters that were too short and non-descriptive. Chapter 10 for example.
In fact, the next update to one of my stories will be an alternative ending (or is it really the end?)!
To my readers of Transformation:
Chapter 11 will come, I promise! It'll just be a while since I'll be working 60 hours a week at Cedar Point. Plus I've got new story arc for DRtN that I want to get uploaded ASAP!
I'm sure a lot of you have noticed the review that summed up said, "I'm insecure about my sexuality, so nobody is allowed to describe it."
To anyone who agrees with this review, know this.
If you take down any story of mine, I will post it again. If you deactivate my account, I will make another. You can never silence me. To hell with anyone who tries.
I've gotta say, I never thought I would screw so many people at Cedar Point. Geddit? Cause I worked at CorkSCREW! :-D In my professional opinion, Corkscrew is fantastic. Anyone who thinks that Millennium Force is the best steel coaster in the world is simply wrong. They don't appreciate the beautiful Arrow coasters out there, like Magnum XL-200 and Dragon Fire.
Millie just can't compete with the three inversions on Corkscrew. And anyone who has ridden Leviathan at Canada's Wonderland knows that Millennium Force has its ass handed to it by Leviathan. Can you tell that I'm a coaster freak? I got a passport and went to another country just to ride one roller coaster. Best. Decision. Ever.
If any of my readers visited Cedar Point this summer (2015), there is a good chance that you saw me working at Magnum XL-200 (my favorite ride in the park to ride) although if not I may have just been on break or it could been my day off that week. Or perhaps I was working at Top Thrill Dragster, or Corkscrew, or Iron Dragon or Kiddy Kingdom. Who knows? You should know that whenever I'm working, I have a sort of stage persona that is the most arrogant son of a bitch you'll meet. I'm actually fairly timid in real life but up there I'm cocky. Odd, isn't it?
But now I'm back again and it is time for me to resume work on my stories. Transformation and Darkness Returns to Normalcy both. I have a chapter almost finished for DRtN by now and it should be up soon. I hope you enjoy it!
Age: 10100 in binary :D
Bio: I am a guy that loves science. I love astrophysics and electrical engineering, but most especially designing kickass roller coasters in NoLimits 2. It was hard for me to give up on pursuing a degree in astrophysics, but I had to. There aren't many career opportunities for astrophysicists.
The things that I have learned from studying science have led me to become an atheist. One of the best arguments that I have ever heard against young earth creation is this: Why can we see things like the Andromeda Galaxy? Andromeda is our closest galactic neighbor and it's 2,538,000 light years away. If the universe is only 6000, there wouldn't be enough time to see the whole Milky Way, let alone Andromeda.
Hobbies: Drawing, playing Kerbal Space Program, designing roller coasters, platforming games (like Ratchet and Clank), Pokemon, life sucking MMO's like RuneScape. Skyrim, The Last of Us, Red Faction: Guerrilla, designing roller coasters, and general dicking around.
Favorite Pokémon: Absol

Current activities that will slow the progression of Transformation:
Work. I got hired at Cedar Point's Magnum XL-200 for the 2015 season so during the summer, I won't be able to do much here.
I have a life outside writing fanfics.
Writing my own book that I intend to make a profit from.
You guys want a sick joke? Look no further!
There's a father sitting at home, reading the paper. His daughter comes running in, she's only six.
You've been playing?
At the park?
With your friends?
Yes, until the man came along.
The man came?
He asked all my friends to leave so it was just me and him.
Oh god, sweetie, whatever happened, none of it was your fault but tell daddy every detail.
Um... He took me behind a tree so no one would see.
Oh god, then what happened?
Um... He took my dress off.
God, then what?
He took his thing out...
And then what?
Nothing that was it.
WELL MAKE SOMETHING UP! -fap fap fap-
