Author has written 5 stories for Teen Titans, and Naruto.

Alias': The Justice, Mercanuis, and Brogramn

Age: 23
Social Status: Single White Nerd 8P
Astral Sign: Leo (so I'm passionate and creative) Status: A nobody with some success online.


Video Games:
Final Fantasy Series, Lunar Series, Soul Calibur, Guilty Gear X and XX, Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell, etc., etc.
Practically the only genres I haven't spent any time on are Strategy and Sports. I recently entered a city fighting tournament, and I took 3rd, so my skills are L33T! They should be, as I've been playing since I was three years old. I take a lot of my inspiration from the RPG's I play.

I played WoW, but it quickly became a mog rush to see who can get the best gear first. Don't get me wrong, it was plenty of fun, but I soon found myself in just a dungeon crawler instead of an RPG. I wanted to be swept away by WoW, and what I found was a world desecrated by a bunch of FPS players. Most of them have the sexual maturity of a 4th grader and the vocabulary of an educated donkey. I wanted to find another place. And wouldn't ya know it? The place I was looking for was back in FFXI.

So, I'm back on there, and as of now, I'm better than ever. If you care to play with me, this is my bio.

Mercanuis (Hume Male)
Jobs: Monk 15, Thief 35, Warrior 35, Dark Knight 56, Samurai 75
Server: Kujata
Linkshell(s): BravedDawn (An RPLS. Putting the "Role-playing" back in "Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game")
Allegiance: The Republic of Bastok (I just find their turmoil the most interesting and developed)

I collect both Anime and Manga, I practically have to beat myself into submission so I don't spend all my money on collecting.

Current Favorites: (In no particular order...)
Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water (If you're a serious otaku, this is a must see, no exaggeration...)
Shakugan no Shana
MAR (Marchen Awakens Romance)
Eureka 7
Buso Renkin (Newest from the creator of Rurouni Kenshin)
Fate/Stay Night (Think Final Fantasy Tactics meets Street Fighter. I love it)

One that doesn't fit the others but is worthy of attention is called Neotopia. This is a beautiful story, and reminds me of the legendary pictures of Hiyazaki-sensei.

I still look at cartoons as viable entertainment, even for adults. Anime is more adult-oriented, but still has something for the kids. When I'm looking for ideas about how to handle an intimate or dramatic moment, I look to my anime. Luckily, I have about 10k worth of material to look at, so I'm never far from inspiration.

Couples: Having little experience with the opposite sex, I'm surprised I turned out so obsessed with romance. Love is something we all at one point or another are looking for. Even people who don't care about characters hooking up will look at two characters and think, if for only a moment 'Now those two I could see together.'

You know what's weird? I just started listening to rap/hip-hop, and I actually am really getting into it. My mom bought some CD's for herself and bought me the Encore CD by Eminem. Now I listen to a lot of the hip-hop station in my neighborhood. Why? I guess I like it because it something to keep my racing brain occupied. Some of the songs are really good too. Oh well.

Books: Oddly enough, I have been picking up books lately (How come there's no pictures?). The ones I do pick up on mostly on politics. Some of them are fun, some get me riled up, and some get me scared to death.

Movies: I watch a lot of movies, just because they are good to get your mind off things for a couple of hours.

Recomended Movies:
"The Last Samurai" (My current favorite)
"Kill Bill"
"Blood: The Last Vampire"
"Ninja Scroll"
"The Majestic"
"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
"Mystery Men" (Movie I've seen the most: 13 times)
"Liar Liar"
"The Rundown"
"Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind"
"Sin City" (MARV! "That's one fine looking coat you're wearing..." Breaks Someone's Face)

Advice for fellow/inspiring writers:

1) Treat your audience like intelligent creatures.

Sounds like an obvious pointer, but you'd be surprised how many people seem to forget this. When reading a story, a common mistake is to not add details or explain their character's reasoning. By doing this, one can get over two of the most common flaws in any story: lack of detail/depth and the prevention of plot-holes. By explaining your plot points out in the story, your reader will better understand what you're trying to present.

Of course, you don't need to explain every little detail abound in your story. Too many details lessens the impact of your real intentions. Also, keeping some information to yourself can add tension and controversy to your fiction. The key is to find a balance and to know when its ok to leave some details out. If you write your stories in a way where the reader can easily deduce a character's reasoning or intentions, you're doing your job.

2) Never bend or break to other people

I learned this one the hard way. I used to bend to the slightest complaint of a reviewer. However, what I was doing wasn't a work of my own anymore. A story should be your idea and yours alone. If people have a problem with it, try to explain yourself to them, but never change things just for them.

Upcoming Projects:

Konichiwa! Kara Kiwa Seken: (Greetings! From the Edge of the World)

I wrote a small preview for this next huge project in Sono, but since then this has had a major overhaul. Some elements will remain the same, but expect a completely different storyline.

Our Final Embrace?

I made mention of this in my last story. This is the first of a number of one-shots I'm making. This one is going into the Karin section. The story starts after the final episode of the animated series. Now that the problem with the vampire hunters has been solved, the Marker family starts to return to a normal life. Karin too, begins to get back to her daily schedule, a weight lifted off her shoulders now that she's being honest with herself. However, Karin's (awesome) grandmother, Elda Marker, now has something on her mind for her grand-daughter. And what does this 'something' have to do with Kenta?
