Poll: Are the observed Grammar, Spelling, and/or plot-hole mistakes in DC Phantom or my other works bad enough to warrant a Beta-reader; keep in mind, this would mean a longer time between updates. Would my readers prefer the 'standard quality' or take a hit in 'quantity' for somewhat better material? Vote Now!

Okay, Slayer Anderson here and this is a little about me...
I'm male and an Anime Otaku. I'm a graduate of High School and a hometown college. I can't actually list all of the Anime I've seen here. The list would actually overload my bio page. Suffice to say, I've been an anime fan for over half my life at this point. I'm also a serious fan of Western Animation such as Danny Phantom and the Teen Titans. Fanfiction was a natural jump from my devotion to fandoms to my creation of personal homages to those same fandoms.
Life: I had one once...I think I'm using it as a book end for my Love Hina Manga
Other stuff I like: Harry Potter, Twilight (Books 1-3, not book 4), Dresden Files, Dead Witch Walking Series, Anything by Eric Flint, Max Brooks, or Harry Turtledove, and Scott's Westerfield's Leviathan and Midnight Hour series.
I'm not much of a comic fan, but I do like to dip into the classics from the Golden Age: Batman, Superman, X-men, etc...and compare them to the gritty reboots they've gotten over the years.
(Upcoming Works is a very loose title. These may or may not even 'pan out' into full stories worthy of publishing. I just felt some of my reader should know that, even if I don't put something out, I AM working on SOMETHING...usually. Other times I'm being lazy.)
Spark of the Revolution: LIBERTY & JUSTICE turned out to be flops, so I formatted and sliced and diced until I made something that only barely resembled the old copies. Spark centers around a shadowy mastermind who manipulates a group of freedom fighters into a fierce rebellion that threatens to overthrow Britannian oppression of Area 11. Sound familiar? That's all well and good, but Lelouch is one of the pieces on the board this time around, edging ever-closer to victory at the direction of the mysterious Prophet, but what are this figure's aims and goals?
DC Phantom: The HIVE Minded Rewrite I've promised for something like 2 years, is finally coming to fruition due to a general relaxation of my personal life. It is truly glorious to have time to write again.
Marvel Phantom: An off-shoot of DC Phantom. Basically, Danny Phantom set in a Marvel 'verse. For those Marvel fans, this is not the 'classic' 616 reality, but rather a fusion of some of the new 'teen hero' media like Iron Man: Armored Adventures.
In Bad Faith: I have no excuse for this. Really, I don't. I'm not exactly sorry for it, but I do acknowledge the egregious nature of this particular fanfiction sin. Feel free to criticize me for for the crime of a self-insert.
Zilch, Nada, Zippo.
Due to the June 2012 Story Purge, some of these have been deleted to accommodate the change in Rules & Regulations as well as the enforcement thereof. I am sorry if you liked these, though I do have backup copies if someone is REALLY interested in acquiring one. PM me for details, as for myself, I don't consider these any great loss.
Mercurial: Homeward Bound: Discontinued. People have complained about this being a 'Gary-stu.' They're exactly right. I actually wanted to write a Harry Potter fic about a multi-verse jumping Harry that came back and turned out to be ultra-powerful. Don't look at me like that, it was relaxing to something a little (or a lot) cliche. Discontinued for obvious reasons.
Arcane Systems: My take on a 'crazy' Harry. Yes, a really, really, really crazy Harry. Yeah, this is just a barrel of cliches as well, and a crossover with Hellsing.
Age of Gods: Discontinued. Yeah, sorry, but it was turning into a very confusing piece of crap. Few reviews and an overall dislike for how the story turned out on my part just kill what interest I had in writing this one.
Artificial Intelligence: Discontinued. Unless I get a massive surge of ideas for this fic I don't have any drive or inspiration towards going any further with it, which I know is a disappoint for many of you.
Transcendent Serpent: Discontinued. Well, it was an...interesting idea, but there were massive planning fallacies that were readily apparent when I took the time to do a few re-reads.

Something Interesting I stumbled across that reminds me of my misspent days of callow youth-iness in High School:

Well, ladies and gents...first off, I didn't get my thesis done.
That said, I'm not taking another haitus. I really do enjoy writing my various stories and am enjoying getting back into the swing of things. For those of you who are curious, I'm looking back over my story notes and the past chapters and I don't feel the need to burn entire stories and dance on their ashes. Marvel and DC Phantom are...mostly okay. I'll be working on new chapters for each soon.
In Bad Faith...it sucks. It's trash. It's terrible. It's painful to re-read much of this story. I won't be taking it down, but it will be getting a rewrite. Not the *entire* thing, mind you, but several chapters need to be edited heavily.
Also, for those of you who are interested, I'll probably be posting some stuff on Spacebattles Creative Writing Forum. Specifically, I'll be dropping the new chapters of some stuff over there before I post them here, for some stories. Specifically In Bad Faith, because I'm looking at wanting a bit of creative feedback on that piece of...stuff.
Anyway, I'm Back.
