Years writing fiction: going on eleven. I'm a graduate the University of Virginia, Bachelor of Science in Biology. Almost four years into this recession, and I am still seriously under-employed. It's enough to drive a man back to school.
I write fanfiction because people don't read it when you write original fiction unless you have a staff of promotional workers, and I believe there's no real reason to write something that will never be read. I focus on superheroes and video games because these are the best media for having a fun time with science fiction, fantasy, and melodrama, the former being what makes it fun for me, the latter being what makes it fun for other people (or so I've generally noted).
Like any writer, I'm always overjoyed to hear commentary on my work, and I will respond to people who go out of their way to be constructive. As for people who just say hello and thanks, I appreciate you all as well--your small efforts are what make my big efforts sustainable and fun, rather than a depressing ordeal.
My writing style is self-classified as extremely dense, often needlessly complex, and riddled with a combination of experimental concepts of my own, and re-hashed fiction devices of much more famous people. I believe literature is a joke, and that the goal of writing should always be entertainment rather than artistry. I enjoy writing action scenes a lot more than romance scenes, even if that will ultimately make me a less popular fanfiction writer than I might otherwise be. I think paring people off is boring, and I work to defy convention, not only in the pointless 'shipping' debates, but also in the larger social sense of what a relationship should be, and what it can be. I believe any and all fictional environments can be improved by injecting the gritty violence of reality they so often lack, and extending the unbelievable personalities and improbable coincidences that make up modern fiction along the logical progression to their absurd extremes. In this way, I suppose my writing style could best be described as comicbook pulp fiction.
Anyone interested in a story that is long, deep, and bent under the weight of plot will probably enjoy at least some of what I've posted here. Just remember to be prepared for violence, disturbing departures from the established social norms, and melodramatic slop that defies all one's attempts to suspend disbelief.
