Author Corner

Ah, the author corner. What can I say? It's damn hard to be put under one of my favorite FFN authors. It takes a great deal of skill, and it's always tentative. One day you may be on this list, and one day perhaps not. Let's get down to it, shall we?

The Unknowing Herald: This guy right here ... He's taught me more than I thought was possible. While being a good friend of mine, he constantly drives home the point, always hitting me harder than I can recover from. For every one of those hits, I find improvement. While not the nicest of guys, he certainly is a loyal friend, and a much more skilled writer than me. I owe him a lot more than what I give to him, but he's always kept up with my mistakes, and that means everything. Aside from that, he has some awesome stories. Usually, they're pretty dull, long and yawn-worthy, but he makes up for that with great fight scenes, good characterization, and epic climaxes. Keep writing, bro! You truly are my best internet friend.

Wood Dog: I'll always say that he's the best damn monster hunter in the land, and what did he do? He took that skill and transformed it into the art of writing, and it gave birth to one helluva good Monster Hunter fic. Seriously, go check it out! But, that aside, he has taught me to be one with my characters and that as many mistakes as I make, both in the fictional world and in real life, there is always something in it to value and the rest to improve upon. He's a great guy that always has something to say to make everything better, and I value his opinions highly. While he doesn't write a whole lot in his chapters, what is there is amazing, and always worth the read.

Lucenthia: The uke himself. Joking aside, he's one of my closest internet friend that I have. Hours of conversing with this goofball has taught me a lot about myself and my writing. Now, all cards on that table, this guy is a much better writer than me, hands down. Everything he has to say I take to heart because it's most likely better or more correct than what I was thinking. He finds my mistakes and really hammers down on them, helping me become a better writer and closer to his stature. I don't think he has any strong points, mainly because he is a well-rounded writer. Jack of all trades, master of none. And perhaps that is a good thing. He is the master, and I am his pupil. Keep it up (ha!)!

Others: I need to read more people on this site to list more people.

My Patronus is a Dolphin

Your patronus takes the form of a Dolphin. A dolphin is both very playful and friendly. Like a dolphin, you are joyful, intelligent, and very funny. You enjoy life, and like to help others. You have so many happy thoughts that you can easily perform the patronus charm. Casting the charm becomes somewhat more difficult during a battle, but your concern for your friends helps you keep your focus.

Normalcy? Extremely Overrated by The Unknowing Herald reviews
My name is Sora, and I used to be normal. Then "stuff" happened and now I am on a new "school" in Radiant Garden. The term "school" was used very freely there.

Come on in and take a seat.
