Author has written 2 stories for Star Fox.
Sex: Only with females
A little bit about me: I'm really lazy and underachieving, but I try to put at least some effort into my story writing. I write all Star Fox fanfics, although I'm planning to write a Pokemon one in the near future. I like writing depressing stories, although I try to maintain some wit and sarcastic humor in them, and I try to keep the mood light in spite of the things that are happening. I get involved in shipping more than I'd like to admit (Pokeshipping especially). As for my name, well I was trying to find a name for my IMDb profile five years ago, then my mom asked me to take out the trash. I thought, "Why not?" The name has since stuck with me with other websites and message boards I visit. If you see somebody with the name Trashbag, it might be me.

The Life of James McCloud
Looking back at this story, I have to say that I'm not very impressed at myself. I was only thirteen when I started that story, so the first couple of chapters were kinda lackluster to me. As it went on, and I started to grow older, the chapters became a bit more descriptive and longer, instead of having just small clusters of paragraphs with just a couple of short sentences. There's just a large inconsistency with the story as a whole, leaving a sort of unbalanced feeling with it.
Story wise, some parts were okay, other parts I thought, "What was I thinking?" For example, Vixy being afraid around mammals other than foxes because some other mammals raped her, I could've found some other way to get her and James together. It just sounds sorta ridiculous, even on paper, and kinda seems like a cheap way to get James to agree to watch over her. As for Eddie, he was supposed to be the almost equal to Andross, the one who could really stand up to him or tell him what to do. How Andross just pops him in the back of the head out of nowhere just kinda kills (no pun intended) the character I had going for him. I just needed a way to get rid of him. Also, maybe I could've cut down on the Tarantino references. I had just seen Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs at the time, so I was completely inspired by those movies. But now, it just seems really stupid.
Other than those points, I thought the story as a whole was okay. It definitely started to get better as the chapters went on. I wanted to end it because I knew with the first few chapters being what they are, not a lot of people are going to keep reading until the end. I just wanted to separate the good from the bad, that's all. That, and the length was a factor too. Anyway, I want to thank you all who have read this story and who are reading the new one. Most of the reviews I've gotten were very generous and some... not so generous (Octavian Kaiser Scott comes to mind). But I hope you all enjoy what I have coming for you in the next story, which is a lot more planned out than this one was.
Latter Days of James McCloud
Overall, I'm much more satisfied with this story than I was with the last one. I think it's much more solid and well-balanced, and my writing is more consistent. However, I still have quite a few things to criticize about it. First off, while the majority of the story was obviously about James, he seemed to inexplicably disappear in many parts. There's Andross' flashbacks, which I will admit there were too many of. Then there's that abysmal "Time Lapses" chapter I did (I'll get to that later). I was trying to focus on some of the other characters for a change, but this is supposed to be about James! The first story was called "The Life of James McCloud," so shouldn't I be focusing on, you know, his life?
Speaking of that, I realized how much I didn't cover in the first story. As a whole, it spans over twelve years, but I skipped over quite a bit (like his entire childhood, for instance). The main story only takes up about two years. As for this one, I covered over ten years of James' life. I was originally planning on this story to be much shorter, but I realized that I needed a relationship between Fox and his mother, and Andross' exile needed to last five years. I also really wanted to write about Fox growing up along with Falco and Slippy, so I extended it. Besides, the last part of the story spans over two days, and yet it takes up six chapters.
Anyway, back to my criticism. For the most part, I liked most of the chapters, but there were some that seemed a bit... well, lackluster to me:
Target Practice/The Jack - I actually think this is okay, but it's sorta lacking compared to the previous chapters. The first part is alright, but the second part is what I'm not so happy about. I wanted to introduce Pam in some way, but really, I could've established a lot more character here; all I really do is mention her name. Also, the "Jack" itself was a bit unnecessary (for those of you who don't know, "the Jack" is a slang term for gonorrhea. I was going to write another chapter about Andross getting pubic lice, but I decided against it).
"Long Time Friends" (Yeah Right) - Well, first off, the title is garbage. Also, I could've found a better way to kill off William Kup; it's kinda cheap just having him stabbed 23 times (which, for those of you who didn't get the reference, is the same way Julius Caesar died).
Time Lapses - I don't care what you say, but I absolutely HATE this chapter! It just didn't fit in with the story at all, and it completely throws it off the rails. The whole thing just feels too different compared to the rest of the story. I mean, I'm not writing a comedy here, but you wouldn't be able to tell from this chapter! I also don't like how smart I made the kids. They were all, like, incarnations of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes (which, maybe, I might have been going for while writing this). Worst of all, this chapter came right after Vixy's death, which really felt like an inappropriate shift in tone to me. Look, the reviews you gave me were great, and it's one of my highest viewed chapters, but I just find it absolutely horrid.
Some other minor quibbles are my numerous pop culture references, more specifically to Pokemon. I was going through some sort of Pokemon phase, and I felt like throwing in as many Pokemon references as I possibly could for some reason. There are also a couple of moments where I could've gotten into more detail about certain things. I especially wish I could've gone more in depth with James and Fox's relationship. I'd like to give kudos to "The Past Story" by french-charlotte, which is a story I wish I wrote. But oh well, mine is fine for what it is.
All of that aside, I'm still very satisfied with the whole thing. I'm especially fond of the last six chapters before the epilogue. I've been afraid of writing the ending ever since I started the story because I was convinced I wouldn't do a good job. But I'm happy with the way it wrapped up. All in all, it's three years well spent.
