Author has written 11 stories for Harry Potter, Teen Titans, Lupin III, and Naruto.
I am a man of variety. I like a little bit of everything. I've read a little from ever genre, and I've read every type of literature from Beowulf to Harry Potter. I don't often read poetry unless the subject matter interests me. I like variety in the stories I read as well. Even if it's not a true fact, I need to be learning from what I read. Anything from useless trivia, to background information on the world and characters. I'm a collector of knowledge, sometimes it's useful, and sometimes it's completely worthless.
My writing flows from my brain to my fingertips as I type away, but I rarely think too much about what I'm writing as I'm doing it. The stories just flow like water from my mind to the keyboard, and they're usually pretty good. Since I have no beta reader, and being the antisocial troglodyte I am, I'm an almost obsessive proofreader. I'm constantly going over my work to make sure it's good, and if it doesn't meet my standards, I won't post it. This leaves my update schedule fairly erratic.
Since the scenes come to me as though a movie is being played in my brain, I can't always put all the things I want into the story, so I have to leave some of the stuff up to the imagination. My imagination is vivid. When I read something, it's as if I'm really there, watching the happenings as a curious specter that hovered by and decided to follow along. I see, smell, hear, taste and feel the world that the author provides for me. This means that I do the same when I write. Everything is a texture, a taste, a sight, a sound or a scent.
I am not by nature an optimistic person. I'm very much a realist with a number of idealistic visions and tendencies, which often leads me to be cynical and act the pessimist. I see the way things could be, and compare that with the way things are, and I become depressed and cynical. I'm a rather friendly person, if you can get past my natural reticence and overwhelming need to be intelligent. I often sound condescending during conversation if I'm not careful with my tone.
By no means do I find myself better than anyone else. In fact, I dwell almost excessively on my own faults. My good points are barely a balance for my failings, at lest in my own estimation. Others have seen in me more that I feel is there, but then I'm not the best judge of my own character. I'm a much better judge of other people's character. I'm rather intuitive that way.
That intuitiveness bleeds into my writing a lot.
One of my most successful stories, Flowers Before Dawn (see below), was written from a female point of view. Being that I wrote it before I changed my screen name to reflect that I was, in fact, male many of my reviewers were convinced that I was a woman. The number of surprised reviews I got after I clearly stated in one of my author's notes that I was a guy was a lot more than I was expecting. I'm supposing that the novelty wore off, because my sequel to that particular story flopped and I was forced to abandon it. (It's only abandoned until I can motivate myself to finish it. I really don't want to leave it unfinished forever.)
I'll try to update my stories as much as possible, but sometimes encouragement can jump start my creative processes. The more people that review, even one line compliments and requests for updates, the more likely I am to spend time figuring out the next step in the story. I find that if other people aren't interested in my work, neither am I. It's a shame really. I'm working on some good stuff now, but it'll be slow going.
I guess I've written enough, and if you've read through all that, you probably know me better than some of my best friends do.
Interesting Tidbits About Myself
I'm a gamer to the core. My entertainment is more often than not, interactive.
~ My collections include but are not limited to: Magic: The Gathering, Dungeons and Dragons, GURPS, XBox(360) games, Playstation(1&2) games, Gamecube games, SNES games, Sega Genesis games, PSP Games, Gameboy Advance games, PC Games. Most of my video games are RPGs.
I'm relatively open minded about music. The only music genres I'm not terribly fond of are Hip Hop, Rap (These two mostly because of subject matter), and Country (Some of the new stuff is good)
~ My music collection includes but is not limited to: The Strokes, The Bravery, Keane, Gorillaz, Sugar Ray, Jason Mraz, Hoobastank, Jack Johnson, Rammstein, Jimmy Eat World, Linkin Park, Fountains of Wayne, Streetlight Manifesto, Green Day, Matchbox Twenty, Smash Mouth, System of A Down, Vanessa Carlton, and others.
~ My MP3 collection, like most other people's this day and age, is huge.
~ I've recently been getting into Trance music. Feel free to suggest bands.
My mind is overflowing with both useless information and a hoard of creative ideas. I'd be happy to be a sounding board for your next story, but don't expect me not to take notes.
My fandoms are many, my imagination limitless, my dreams vivid. I am also, though the fact is largely debated amongst the voices in my head, a genius. When the council legitimizes my status I will throw a large party and invite everyone who cares. Until then I'll settle for mildly intelligent.
When excited, my laugh becomes distinctly evil and maniacal. I even creep myself out sometimes when I use it.
