Author has written 6 stories for Borderlands, Pokémon, Skullgirls, and Guild Wars.

What up,

This is me changing my profile for like, the hundredth time. That's because I can never make up my mind. It's why Borderlands 2: The Series took so long to finish among other things. I like to experiment when I write, whether it's trying to tackle themes or it's switching up narrative and dialogue styles (see Skullgirls: The Unauthorized Cut). I'm always trying to improve myself and I suggest every writer do the same.

If I wanted any writer to pick something up from me, it would be my desire to want to build characters and describe their settings in interesting ways like I really want to.

My stories can have a very dark sense of humor and morbidity to them. That's because at the center of my wisecracking, humorous scenarios and action-heavy plots, there's a horror writer in me. That is, if you haven't guessed from my avatar. I'm a bit sick and twisted inside. You have been forewarned.

Fanfiction I'm thinking of writing: more Borderlands after a while, Guild Wars 2, X-Men, the comic Invinicble by Robert Kirkman, Adventure Time, Regular Show and if I work up the courage American Horror Story. See how varied my tastes are?

Current stories I'm working on: Borderlands 2 The Series: Season 2, which I'm planning on taking to dark and I think exciting new places. I'll be experimenting with wordplay, themes and different narrative techniques. I think I get a kick out of my stories being much different than what you're going to get from somebody else. I think I'm unique, so what? I'm 400 words into a Guild Wars 2 chapter based around OCs.

I've put Skullgirls: the Unauthorized cut and Who wants to be the best, Anyway? on hiatus for now and honestly, I haven't even looked their way for about two months but I do intend to work on them both soon. It kills me to leave things I enjoy unfinished.

Previously, I was going to work on a collaborative effort with thewhitepatch, Foryewhoartliterate, Civilized Lee, and WhimsicalMayhem but I think it kind of fell through, which doesn't bother me because I don't think I play well with others when it comes to writing at least. These are my toys! Just kidding. I think I'm sort of the odd man out; I don't think my style meshes very well with others.

Anyway, thanks for reading my stuff and constructive criticism/reviews are always appreciated. Thanks.

Unsung Heroes by TheGoldenRino reviews
Pandora was always a bandit filled wasteland. Hyperion wanted to change that, but Pandora didn't want to change. Six vault hunters sent Hyperion back. Everyone knows that. But there where more. Four more, who helped just as much as the six. This is the story you don't know. This, is their story. First published story, so please review. rated T for language and violence.

Strip Poker by WhimsicalMayhem reviews
Somethings Maya could just do without. Strip poker made the top five, along with enemies she couldn't phasleock and cheesy pickup lines.

The Captain and the Hunter by Foryewhoartliterate reviews
Captain Scarlett's luck has taken a turn for the worst, the Treasure of the Sands has been robbed from her, her crew has abandoned her, and she's in the middle of sandworm territory. But perhaps not all is lost. After all that Hammerlock fellow that just helped her out seems like a decent guy. Maybe her situation isn't as bad as she thought after all. (On Hiatus)

[Complete] Death on Pandora is a bit complicated. A young girl gets a chance at a life she never had, even if it is a bit... tense. An Angel-centric story. Now with Bonus Content at the end.

Borderlands 2 The Series: Season 2 reviews
Our heroes find themselves on a distant planet that refuses to be plundered so easily. Reading season 1 is recommended. I'm aiming for a funnier, more action-packed and darker story. Mostly darker.

Angels for Dinner
A young human noble crosses paths with a guild that serves and intends to raise an ancient dragon. Will contain bloody violance, some sexual scenes, disturbing surrealism and some adult language. Guild Wars 2-based and starring OCs though I will use GW2 characters and lore at every opportunity.

Borderlands 2: The Series reviews
A Tale that begins shortly after the events of "Borderlands 2". The vault hunters have defeated Jack, The Warrior and Terramorphus. Is it time off for the vault hunters? Nope. It's new enemies, new locations, and a new vault for the vault hunters to explore. Also, no new U stations and -1000% more Wub Wub.
