(June 15, 2017 update: I haven't written in so very long. Been in a serious relationship since 2013, married in fact. My wife is supportive of my writing but to write the stories below required me to be in an intense depression to truly craft. I am much better now that I've ever been and, while I don't write nearly as much as I like, I do come back and read/checkup this page. Thank you everyone over the past decade(s) and know I have not forgotten any of you.)
My fics aren't very... well, "happy." While they will usually contain some sort of light at the end of the tunnel, often the works are very dark and morally ambigious unless the situation calls for it (see my Ace Combat story.) Expect realist scenarios (even if it is comic or fantasy genre), lots of coarse language (TV censors normal speech), and do not be surprised if there's violence all over the place.
I've been asked by a few readers why my stories seem "more real" than the fan fiction title these stories possess... To be candid, I don't like writing "fan fiction" as any story based on imaginary characters/locations is, by definition, fiction. While I'm using characters from established fiction, I do not believe that elements of the real world should be ignored solely for the sake of maintaing the nature of an established story. Fan fiction should be an avenue to explore different ideas and options that have not been presented by the media as tools of growth and maturity as writers, not just as fans.
I won't sit here and lecture you, the reader, but rather ask that you read these stories as an open mind. If you feel my stories or characters are incorrectly OOC or what-have-you, please feel free to raise your points but be objective, don't flame for the sake of doing so. I won't post something that I feel is below my standard and I defintely won't post something that insults the reader as intelligent human beings (I make grammar/spelling mistakes but I'm human as well.)
As to why I've centered mainly on Teen Titans, it's actually because the Watchman saga has taken 3 drafts and 6 years to produce in it's entirety and therefore doesn't leave opportunities to explore other titles. I would love to write a crossover Gundam Wing / Gundam UC fiction (I've had a plot in my head for over a decade) but it would involve another 5-6 years of writing, and I don't think humanity has much time left in it.
