Author has written 4 stories for Naruto, Ultimate Marvel, and Avatar.
Hmm... I guess now that I've got some people reading my story, I'd better put out some info on myself... So... Where to begin...
My name is E. Red.
I live in Canada. Toronto, to be precise. I work retail part-time, and am an Army Reservist, armoured recce. GGHG, if you're interested. I have a college diploma in "Comedic Writing and Performance" which, while it means very little in practical terms, means I've basically got a BA in BS.
My favorite colors are red and orange, but never at the same time. I love pizza, Subway sammiches and mexican food. I have three younger brothers and an older sister, none of whom share in many of my interests.
My favorite anime are Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, Love Hina, .Hack//SIGN, Avatar and Ah! My Goddess!. I play PS2, Gamecube, Wii, Xbox and Xbox 360(Finally next gen!) My XBL gamertag is ThisTinSoldier, so drop me a line!
I write to ease stress, which is part of the reason I wrote 6 chapters in as many days... But, I digress... Also, I'm working on an original piece of fiction. Progress is slow, but I'm looking to put it out to a publisher in a year or two. Editing sux...
I enjoy reading fanfics, and will generally read anything, but have some serious issues with people who write Yaoi/Yuri for characters who plainly are not intended to play those roles. (cough NaruSasu cough)
Words to reflect on...
Every end has a beginning, every beginning an end...
Every drop of sweat in training is one less drop of blood in battle.
With great power, comes great responsibillity.
To defeat one's enemies, first must one understand and defeat oneself.
Know the enemy, and not yourself, and you will fail every time.
Greed. Pride. Wrath. Envy. Lust. Sloth. Gluttony. Why can we always remember the Sins, but never the Virtues?
Only when you have someone precious to protect, can you become truly powerful.
Knowing is half the battle. Doing is the rest.
Racism is a result of weak-minded fools. Hatred should be equal-opportunity, and merited.
Think outside the box? Why? The box is there for a reason. I feel safe in the box...
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost...
If only I had done more...
Consistancy is key. Keep true to yourself, and you'll find the way.
Tyrants. Sadists. Rapists. Those who do evil will come to know me well...
If only words could convey my feelings for you...
Fall down seven times, get up eight...
Revenge? No. Revenge isn't a valid motive. It's an emotional response.
Tell me where your God is now, in your hour of greatest need.
Such things are not meant to be pondered by mortals. Best leave well enough alone.
I'm not a smart man. But I do know what love is.
Love is unconditional. Love is pure, and good. Love is power, and potential, and passion. So why do we hate?
So many would follow the darkness, if not for the ones who guide them...
Please... Just... Make me understand...
Always remember, Never forget. The Sin shall remain, with all my regret...
Death is but a second beginning...
Do not fear the Reaper, but be prepared fo his arrival.
Your life is not defined by the breaths that you take, but rather by the moments that take your breath away...
Basic principals? There are none.
You are you. That's all that matters.
Live Well. Die Standing. Stay Frosty. -E. Red
Currently In Production:
Here are some non-revealing notes on the stories I'm working on currently. All mimics will be shot. Err, well not exactly, but you get my drift. Plz use your own material, or at least ask my permission first...
The Way of the Orphan: Another Naruto-induced case of cerebral constipation, this story is the first one I've thought up a (semi-concrete) plot for that starts it's AU divergence before the 3 year skip. There will also be some crazy gender-benders in this one, so be warned! This one will (hopefully) be only loosely resembling any of my other favorite novels (Curse your excellent writing skills, Eddingses!) FemaleNaruto/Shino. The story that was never meant to grow this big... Though I'm glad it did... In Progress!
His Mother's Love: Why do I do this to myself? Yet another story inspired by a bad blow to the head, this one goes slightly off the beaten path, though not as much as WotO did. Yes, it's another "what if Naruto got adopted instead of left alone?" fic, but I'm trying to do something unique withit... We'll see how it goes... In Progress!
Soul Alchemy: The name may be recicled from a lost cause, but this story is wholly a new entity in and of itself. Inspired by a very well-written FemEd story, and my older success with a FemNaru story that I didn't expect to go anywhere (which is now my most enjoyed story, oddly enough). Again, this is an alternate continuation of the story after the last episode, but instead of the movie. Where it's going, only my muse can say, but I'll get there, even if my reputation gets shot for it. On Hiatus, Rewrite in Progress!
Soldier's War: Upcoming films and other fiction have brought out the nerd in me. I just can't help but fall into the fever again, and this is the result. A new idea, and a new story with it. Sigh... Why do I do this to myself? Wait... I asked that before, didn't I? Oh well. Stories can't be contained. They get told. Status Pending review and possible rewrite!
Spider, Spider: The clone saga is proving too good to pass up. As soon as It's over, I'm putting this Fanfiction together to deal with Peter and his clones (Mostly Spider-Woman). There will be many cameos from various Ultimate Universe characters, The Punisher, The Ultimates, The X-Men and Daredevil, to name a few... But I will also do my own Ultimatizing of a few of my favorite Marvels, and add two OC heroes to the mix, and maybe a baddie or two. In Progress!
The Risen:Reading the final few books of the Animorphs series, after years of not knowing what happened after the 'David Saga', has left a bitter taste in my mouth. And hours of reading fanfiction has brought a new idea to life... Sigh... On Hiatus!
Siha: Mass Effect is the single most interesting new IP to come out since Halo, and so much more provocative in terms of writing opportunities. This is my take on a way to follow ME2. I hope to be done this story before holiday, 2011, when the real ME3 comes out. Also, I will be including all DLC stuff up to The Lair of the Shadow Broker in the story, so spoilers abound. In Progress! Rewrite and Repost in progress! I have decided that the main thrust of the original story is now going to be a part of a later story in the series. I am writing an EPIC length ff inspired by the Dark Energy Series by Melaradark. They will run birth to death of Mia Shepard.
Words to believe in:
Take a look at a castle. Any castle. Now break down the key elements that make it a castle. They haven't changed in a thousand years. 1: Location. A site on high ground that commands the territory as far as the eye can see. 2: Protection. Big walls, walls strong enough to withstand a frontal attack. 3: A garrison. Men who are trained and willing to kill. 4: A flag. You tell your men you are soldiers and that's your flag. You tell them nobody takes our flag. And you raise that flag so it flies high where everyone can see it. Now you've got yourself a castle.
Currently On The Drawing Board:
Stories that are in bits and pieces, awaiting final production. These will see the light of day. Someday... Maybe...
Lives Together, Worlds Apart: Check it out. I got inspired, and got permission to use one of the most interesting original ideas I've ever read for a Harry Potter FF, and put my own spin on it. Read the original, as posted in the prologue, and check it out... Again, I suppose... On Hiatus, pending re-imagining.
All In Your Hands: A bad case of nostalgia and some worse milk brought on the hallucination that I could write a fanfic for one of my favorite novel series I've ever read. (Actually, after The Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit, these were the first novels I read...) And so, even with all of these other projects, I'm heaping more onto my slate... Set Aside!... (For Now)
The Greatest Good: My answer to the Naruto-induced lack of sleep I've been experiencing for the last several months. My vision of Naruto's destiny, taking many inspirations from (Yes, I'm admitting to it!) David Eddings' The Belgariad, I am working on it almost constantly, even when I'm working on my other stories! Naruto/Hinata Removed For Pending Rewrite.
Future Memories, Past Sins: And yet a third Naruto related brain barrier. This is the typical "Naruto characters have kids" type, but I think I'll write my own flair into it... Naruto/Hinata Removed For Pending Rewrite.
Words to remember...
Oh, Death was never enemy of ours!
The Cutting Room Floor!
Bloopers, rejected ideas, it all comes to bear in this, my online recycle bin! (These, when they're up, may be freely taken and warped, as long as you mention where the idea originally came from, no requesting necissary!)
Untitled: Having just watched Full Metal Alchemist: The Conqueror of Shamballa, I found myself wanting more... So I'm gonna make more! This'll have an alternate ending to the movie, and may continue on from there, though it'll probably just be a oneshot... (Don't get me wrong, I loved the movie, but it left a lot to be desired, you know?) This story has completely dissolved itself from my brain, so unless it magically reconstitutes itself, it'll not exist on the site... Plus, I've not watched FMA in a long while, so I'd have to watch the series again, and that takes a long ass time...
Harry Potter and the Alchemist's Curse: Harry Potter/Full Metal Alchemist Xover. Got an idea for an opening chapter after reading a few... AHEM... Less than entertaining attempts at this Xover... And a whole new story sprung from my notepad in under five minutes! Yeah! Take that, careful planning! Chalk one up for "Rushing in, headlong"! Yeah, I still don't like most of the HP/FMA stories, so I'm not gonna add my own half-assed attempt to the mix.
Harry Potter: Shattered: Hundreds of times in thousands of Harry Potter Fics (Yes, I have read that many... My social life sux...) I've heard countless Uncle Vernon's use the phrase "Beat that nonsense out of him". What if he did? Or at least, almost did? Unfortunately, this story has been scrapped. The idea was sound, but so many other projects showed much more promise. This one, as it was, did not.
Words to live by...
I have a rendezvous with Death
It may be he shall take my hand
God knows 'twere better to be deep
