My life is on fire, the world is on fire, everything is on fire. This is awesome, let's make S'mores.
Don't like dumb stories? Sorry, I ain't the guy you'd wanna look into then. If anything. I'd call my stories "Junkfood Fics", in the sense that they're fun, and good, but not gonna change the world. I care more about "Did you laugh?" than "Did you feel like this changed the way you looked at this super obscure character you don't know about-WHY WON'T YOU GIVE ME A TVTROPES PAGE!?"
...But I digress.
(Although a tropes page would be cool...)
Fanbases I hang out in: Watch_Dogs, Overwatch, Mortal Kombat, Dead by Daylight, Just Cause, Tokyo Ghoul (Yes, really.), Dragon Ball (big shock), Sonic the Hedgehog, Dungeons and Dragons, Scott Pilgrim, Hazbin Hotel (come at me), DOOM, Animal Crossing, Oddworld (Y'all are sleeping on Stranger's Wrath), Godzilla, Skull Girls (Skullgirls?), Pokémon, Alien/Predator, Street Fighter, Comics (Marvel, DC, IDW, Dark Horse), Willy's Wonderland, Transformers and whatever else I feel like.
Anyhow, look below to see what's being worked on with a (hopeful) ETA on when to expect the next chapter of each story.
Have a look at what Mad Dawg looks like: deviantart. com/skorchntorch/art/Mad-Dawg-2021-Update-866026155

SEPTEMBER 1st UPDATE: I really enjoy doing this, writing these stories has been some of the best experience I've had in my entire life. But I feel like I've pushed way too hard and am beginning to hit burnout. Maybe trying to write 12 stories at once was a bad idea, maybe it wasn't.
Don't worry, I'M NOT QUITTING.
We all got that? Good.
I'm gonna slow down though, mainly focus on four stories (Alola, Doom Slayer!, Dawg Outta Hell (or whichever Mad Dawg tale comes next), The Bastich of Hogwarts and The Z Fighters React to DEATH BATTLE! (Take 2)
I'm not abandoning my other stories, as I really enjoy them, but they'll be updated... when they're updated. I'm not going to use this as an excuse to never touch them again, but I feel like trying to carry twelve stories at once is just gonna drag everything down.
Thank you all for understanding. I know I've said this a few times, but you have brought me further than my wildest imaginations could've thought. I'm in this for the long haul, and I want to bring you the best (or at least, entertaining) stories I can.
The Mutant Of New Meridian: Mad Dawg finds himself crashing at a casino in some new world called 'New Meridian'. Huh, weird. This can't possibly end badly, right? Hahaha- oh, you have NO idea! (Chapter two is being worked on.)
The Z Fighters React To Death Battle! (Take 2) - Exactly what it sounds like. I took over from JLyman and I'm continuing with this story! (Yup. We're there. Goku v. Superman. This is gonna take a while...)
Alola, Doom Slayer! - What happens when the Doom Slayer ends up angering guardians of time and space, life, death and then winds up in the Alolan Islands? Will he become a Pokémon master? Will he find love? Or will he rip and tear everything that gets in his way? Yeah. The second option. That sounds like the most logical and likely option. (Chapter 16 is up! Working on Chapter 17)
The New Blood - A Dead By Daylight story which will be a whole new world with the OG characters. (Chapter Four is up, Chapter Five has been started.)
The Bastich of Hogwarts - The Main Man is hired to protect Harry Potter. This should end well. (THE NEWEST CHAPTER IS UP!)
What If... (Skullgirls Edition) - What it sounds like :) (Chapter two ((technically chapter one)) is up!)
The Dragon Crew Reacts To STUFF! - A side piece to TZFRTDB, where the Dragon Fighters watch and experience all manner of... stuff. (Chapter two is being worked on.)
WORKS ON HIATUS
I don't know if/when I'll get back to these, but they're not cancelled.
The Adventures of Kahn Jr. - A clone of Shao Kahn is brought to Earthrealm. Can he be taught? Or will he become like the original? Or will he get addicted to bubble tea? Let's find out. (Updated. Finally.)
Life In Boonton - Here's a Mortal Kombat AU story concerning the Kombatants in a small town, is this a weird idea? Yes. (On Hiatus)
Uber Culture - Meet Axle, he's a normal Uber driver, his riders... Are not so normal. (Chapter 4 is up, thinking about chapter 5.)
Talon: A Dawg's Tale - What if somethings happened... differently? And a once heroic and free-spirited hero of Overwatch became the monster he was supposed to be? Heck, can Talon handle that? (Chapter 19 is up, but it's really short. Honestly, I have little drive for my Overwatch stories, I'm sorry about that.)
Memories Of A Forgotten Elder God - Lost to time, the Realms, and even the other Elder Gods, Xunos Atax (or 'Roc' as he goes by now) finds himself reflecting on choices he made in the past, and pondering the choices he made and how they affected his future. All while trying to help a new group of Kombatants deal with an old foe. (Chapter six is up.)
A Simple Life - After the events of MKX, Mileena finds herself brought back to life thanks to Kronika's time wave. However, she awakens to find herself not in Outworld, but Earthrealm. What does this mean for the half-tarkatan empress? Only one way to find out... (Chapter 6 is up.)
FINISHED AND DEAD WORKS
Overwatch: A Dawg's Tale - A story which started as a joke but has developed as much, much more. 'Mad Dawg' is a OC I made just for kicks, and the story follows him on his adventures with the Overwatch characters. (Finished. Finally.)
The Loud Dawg House - Mad Dawg finds himself in a new world, meeting new friends, and forgoing any real sense of danger. Because hey, if you can survive being blown up, shot, stabbed, mutilated and humiliated, you can handle one boy and ten girls. Right? ...right? (Blitzed through it, finished it, good enough!)
Suicide Squad: Where Are You? - Shaggy and Scooby are on a road trip to Metropolis to open a restaurant, then they run into the Suicide Squad. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? (I resurrected this story. Hooray. No idea when chapter two will be up, but I'll work on it... this story is here because I have no idea when it will continue.)
Stranger's Song - A one-shot story about a familiar face meeting with Eliza after being gone for so long. (Done)
Hazbin Hotel: Dawg Outta Hell: Mad Dawg is in hell. Literally! But this is Mad Dawg we're talking about, so who's trapped with who? And what's this about... demon rehab? (Complete!)
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
"When will (INSERT STORY HERE) be updated?" - WHEN THE CHAPTER IS DONE AND NO SOONER. YOU ASKING THIS CHANGES NOTHING.
"Why are you working on (Any story that isn't Z-Fighters React To Death Battle Take 2) instead of Z-Fighters React To Death Battle Take 2?" - Burn out. Also, I like my other stories, they're what got me on this site. If you have an issue with it, deal with it on your own, or allow me to reply to your reviews.
"Do you need a co-writer? I'd be happy to help!" - This actually means a lot, but no. I do not, and most likely will never bring on an actual co-writer. It's nothing personal, but I prefer to do things on my own, in my own way. I know how I want things to go, and I'd rather do them on my own. Aside from that, timing, work-load, and so on are other factors. But the offer is appreciated, don't think I don't care :) (Also, many people who offer to help, I look to see if they have written fics, and some of what I've seen has made me feel like they wouldn't be a good match for me. Again, nothing personal against you, I just think we wouldn't gel.)
"Can you write a story for me?" - No. If you want an idea or have ideas you feel aren't fully developed, and need help fleshing out, PM me, and I'll try to help. I won't write stories for you, but I'll do my best to help in any way I can. But I won't write stories for you.
"Can my OC show up in your stories?" - PM me, maybe we can set up a cameo. But even then, these are rare.
"How's your day been?" - Usually pretty good.
"How do you decide which battle to do next in Z-Fighters React To Death Battle Take 2?" - I dunno. I kinda just choose at random, lol.
"Can you do (INSERT BATTLE HERE) next for Z-Fighters React To Death Battle Take 2?" You can make a request, but most likely by the time the chapter is up, the next one is chosen.
"Are you going to change the outcome of (INSERT BATTLE HERE)?" - 98% of the time, no. 2% possibly. Read and find out.

Also, I use Deviantart, and Twitter hit me up at @NTorch to see some mindless sketches I do occasionally (and A test image of Mad Dawg, if you wanna try yourself, feel free, I don't have a solid image just yet.) and Twitter I'll update you all with how stories are coming, as well as get into annoying fights with people.
ABOUT GOKU VS. SUPERMAN
So, this is kinda the big one. It's not coming soon, I just want you all to know what you can expect... So, my longest anything on this site for a single chapter was fifty-six pages for Spawn vs. Kratos. I'm aiming for at least sixty pages for Goku vs. Superman. Currently, I have thirty-six pages, and just got past the opening theme song.
This was a mistake.
And I can't wait for you all to see it!
Again, don't expect it anytime soon (heck, it may not be until 2022 if we're all alive somehow) but it is coming and I'm doing mountains upon mountains of research. And no, I'm not making anything I just said up.
Also, no. I'm not telling you how it's gonna end. Because I don't know myself yet.
Also, also. This is gonna be SSSSUUUUUPPPPPEEEEEERRRRRRRRR self-indulgent. Not with Skorch and Dawg taking centre stage, but with scenes being expanded, dramatized, and everything being cranked up to 13.

AM I DEAD OR GONE?
TLDR: If a full year goes by with not a single update, assume I'm either dead, or decided I was done. I won't do that without telling people, but should something happen, wait a year, then know I'm gone.
Everything will meet. Everything is connected. All stories begin and end, but not always in that order.
