Author has written 3 stories for Buffy X-overs.
Greetings and salutations to all.
Welcome to my Profile Page. Here, you will be given a sneak peek into the insanity that is my own mind. If you do not wish to get to know anything about me… well, good on you mate! Knowing me as well as I do, if I was given a choice to get to know me better, I would run to the other side of my apartment (other side of the world will cost me a lot of money as well as put a serious cramp on my fan-fiction reading and writing times) and hide under the sink until I knew I will not have to get to know me better.
If you do wish to get to know me better, well, read on. However, be advised. I will not be held accountable for any damage, whether mental or physical (mostly mental though) that you may incur as a result of reading my profile. Here’s a list of possible side effects you may acquire as a result of reading this profile: -
1. Severe Stomach Ache: While on the course of reading this profile, you may suddenly acquire severe stomach ache. This may be caused due to laughing uncontrollably for long periods of time. To stop yourself from laughing, please listen to sappy songs that make you want to cry. It will counter whatever effects my profile has had on your mind.
2. Slight discomfort around the posterior area: this may actually be a companion effect to severe stomach aches. People have been known to fall off their seats while laughing uncontrollably and thus, causing slight discomfort in the backside. Most people however are able to ignore it at the time as they are too busy trying to control their laughter and reduce the stomach ache that very laughter had brought on.
3. Angry neighbours: many a times, people have been known to pound their fists onto the floorboards as they roll around on the floor while being in the grips of an uncontrollable laughing fit. Please be advised that this action is wholly forbidden if you are not one to live on the ground floor. Your neighbours downstairs may not be as lenient towards you as your floorboards.
4. Surprising urges: After you’ve read about what I like doing in my free time, you may have the urge to follow a few of my examples. I assure you it is completely alright (if you’re mental like me of course). Feel free to express your inner insanity.
Other side effects that a person might acquire from reading this profile will be added as they are thought up… or brought up. I urge you all to report any new side-effects that you may have incurred as a result of reading this profile. A side-effect that has not been mentioned above. You will be doing your civic duty towards your fellow men and women by warning them of the hazards of reading this profile. Thank you very much.
Anyways, now that the warnings and cautions have been dealt with, lets get on with getting to know me… shall we? (Cranes head back and cackles)
About Me: -
Currently (year 2006 that is): just graduated with a Masters Degree in International Business and am currently looking to do some - well… international business :P with companies in a foreign country. Anyways, only thing I see standing between me and loooooots of money is my laziness - which prevents me from getting out of bed and doing much most of the time. Hmmm, you know - on second thought, even when I am out of bed I actually have the habit of doing very little.
... think I’m finally starting to realise what I’ve been doing wrong these past few months.
Love reading and writing fanfics (if you haven’t guessed that already), going to the gym and going insane in there, swimming (well, more like lazing around in the pool), playing pool (I totally kick ass), reading comics, painting and sketching, using Photoshop to edit pictures, watching cartoons, TV Shows (Smallville, CSI and Law and Order are the only shows I watch at the moment), Martial Arts (just started recently and am loving every minute of it) and movies (hate war movies, romance is alright, action is always good but comedy is definitely the best).
I also - well… must admit that I have this habit of talking to myself a lot. It isn’t all that bad mind you. Why? If it wasn’t for me talking to myself - I would never have discovered what a fascinating individual I am.
No, really… I am. Very fascinating that is. (Sigh) Now, if only others could see what I see in myself.
A few more things about myself (since it IS my profile page) that you’d wish you never knew: -
Love walking around smacking people on the head and running off as the smacked person chases me. This coupled with the fact that I go to the gym, helps me stay fit. If you wish to follow this routine, please make sure that the person you are about to smack does not have any pet dogs. Especially German Shepherds. Nasty little buggers I tell ya!
Oh, Oh, and don't forget Dobermans! Can't forget the Dobermans! Those damned mongrels are worse than German Shepherds!
Can you tell I'm not a dog person?
Have a very hard time riding a bus when the person in the seat in front of me is bald. Makes me wonder if the person would be offended if I started drumming a beat on the said person’s head. Or go all “oooh shiny” and ask the person what brand of polish he uses. What? I’m not the only one who’s ever thought of doing that…
... am I?
Like sneaking up on people and scaring the daylights out of them. Makes me feel like Batman… if he was a foot shorter and about a hundred pounds lighter.
For some reason, my brain had always confused class time as bedtime. As a result, while I was completing my education, I always ended up sleeping through most of my classes. I also just happened to be one of the only students in my university to have ever fallen asleep, while giving an actual examination (heh-heh) - and this happened while I was sitting for a Masters exam. Three of the students beside me couldn’t stop giggling for like ten minutes. But I was only out for like a minute or so… well, maybe just a little more, so I guess it was all good in the end.
Nowadays, since I’ve completed my education and everything, and don’t have classes to fall asleep in anymore - my brain - being my brain - has started replacing class time sleeping with work time sleeping. Yeah, yeah, I know - stupid brain… one of these days it’s going to get me into a lot of trouble.
Am very good at sitting in comfortable chairs for long periods of time. Especially if the said chair is in front of a computer monitor or TV (and they ask me why I need more exercise).
Am an insomniac. However, I do try and make up for it by sleeping at work, so I guess its ok… again.
Completely and hopelessly in love with EBay. The site that has brought into my hands many rare comics. Notable among them are at least 12 comics signed by Stan “The Man” Lee himself, plus the entire Marvel’s New Mutants series with first appearance of Cable. Also have a few other comics with notable first appearances by Jubilee (my favourite X-Woman), and Bishop. Not to mention a lot of other mini series that I did not have a chance to collect before.
Love EBay yes. Love money more.
Hmm… ok, what else about me should I mention here?
I guess I can always add more things about myself, as I remember them… but the question one has to ask is, do I really want to remember? (Cowers in one corner)
Now, about the types of Fan-fictions I love to read: -
My favourite types of Fan-fictions are definitely crossovers. Especially between BTVS, Marvel, DC Comics, Image, and Highlander. However, I prefer crossovers with characters from BTVS and Marvel mostly though. In my opinion, these two groups are the easiest to cross most universes with which is why they have this habit of remaining the cornerstones of most of my crossover fanfics.
Other than crossovers, I love reading fan-fictions about Angel TV Series, BTVS, DC (Batman, Justice League, Teen Titans, DC Superheroes), Marvel (X-Men) and Image (Spawn) characters.
Types of fan-fictions I love to write: -
One of the first fan-fictions I ever wrote was called “And Hell Will Come to Earth”. I based it on the series finale of Angel the TV Series. I was, like most of you, wholly disappointed with the sudden cancellation of the series. My first instinct was to go and smack the WB people on the head. Unfortunately, I realised that it would most probably be a fruitless endeavour (not to mention get me into a lot more trouble than I'm used to getting into) and therefore decided to take the example of many others and write a fan-fiction which picks up from where the series ended.
At the moment, And Hell Will Come to Earth is going through some major reediting. It was my first fan-fiction and as you can guess, I made plenty of mistakes. The story will remain mostly the same. However, I am trying to incorporate it into my “Guardians at the Gates of Hell” universe.
“Guardians at the Gates of Hell”. This was my second fan-fiction and was at the time my most ambitious project to date. It took me nearly six months to come up with a decent plot, and not to mention sequels based on this storyline. It’s also my first crossover fan-fiction. However, as time went by, I noticed a few things which didn’t well… seem right with the story. As a result, I have decided to rewrite the entire fanfic - starting with a brand new plot while at the same time incorporating the old story into this newer version.
The brand new version of Guardians at the Gates of Hell is simply called “Guardians at the Gates of Hell: New Beginnings” and is currently up for your enjoyment. Though, I am sad to admit that the third chapter - which I have been trying to write for the past one year almost hasn't really gotten anywhere. I really don't know what to do? Its like, when I started out, I wanted this to be my greatest contribution to you all... and now that I'm stuck, I feel like I'm failing you on some level. A part of me almost wants to start the story from scratch... again. I've done it before and I know I will have no problem in doing it again. But, it would seem almost unfair to you all... so I'm restraining myself from doing so. But, hey, if I can't seem to come up with a way to move forward, then yes, I will scratch this story and rewrite it from the beginning. For now... I simply wait.
Six Sharp Claws and a Mister Pointy. This is another crossover story that I am currently writing. However, unlike Guardians at the Gates of Hell, or And Hell Will Come to Earth, I absolutely have no idea where I am going with this story. For once, I’ve decided to let my insane side take a crack at it (my sane side wrote the other two).
Well, if you get the chance, check out these three stories and let me know what you thought of them. I love getting reviews. In some ways you could say I’m a review junkie. So please, for the love of God, if you’ve read my stories, let me know what you thought of them.
Feel free to contact me whenever you want. My email address was here but since we can all message each other now via FF.net I took it down.
Become rich as hell, and then flaunt that money around. Maybe get one of the swimming pools filled with money like that old Scrooge McDuck character from Disney. What? Like you never wanted anything like that! (Scoffs)
Start a school dedicated to the art of teaching people the right method of smacking people on the head. The school will also give instructions on how to pick a suitable candidate (or victim as some sane people would call it) from a crowd of people. After all, you wouldn’t want the person you chose to smack to actually be able to catch up with you now would you (duh!). And I don’t get it why people will even be offended. After all, by chasing me, am I not giving them adequate opportunity to exercise and stay in shape as well?
Find Aladdin’s lamp and turn the world into paradise by making dumb people smarter… or smart people dumber. I haven’t decided yet which group causes the most trouble. Maybe I should find a middle ground (taps chin in contemplation).
Become a famous writer and a painter. Or maybe a rich businessman. I don’t really mind, as long as I do something in the future that makes me insanely rich. Well, considering I’m partly insane, I’d rather be insanely rich than anything else.
Hmm… ok. I think that’s about enough for now. Will add more stuff to this profile as time goes on. I hope your psyche has remained undamaged as you sifted through my profile. If not. Well, sanity is an overrated concept anyways. Welcome to the other side. ;)
Take care all
Luc Star (making the world a funnier, crazier, healthier, and overall better place… one smack-on-the-head at a time)
