Joined 05-01-04, id: 582313, Profile Updated: 01-10-18
Author has written 13 stories for Metal Gear, Resident Evil, Mortal Kombat, Left 4 Dead, Halo, Prototype, and Red vs. Blue.

I joined FFN during High School, and wrote some badly-done stuff that no longer exists (In retrospect, I greatly regret having deleted them). I've been sporadically active on and off since I joined, and would like to believe the years have improved my writing. I underwent a shift from humor to horror as my primary genre around 2010ish, when I began a long Resident Evil/Prototype crossover that was popular for its time and I later deleted (again, it was a decision I regret). I sometimes have difficulty keeping consistent with my writing, and I'm busier nowadays than I was back in the 2000s, but I still like to write when I can.

The name comes from Japanese giant monster films; it's a misspelling of King Ghidorah, one of Godzilla's more notable rubbery foes, but with "Dark" at the beginning because I was like 12 when I came up with it and I wanted to be serious and edgy. I've used the name in a few places, notably GameFAQs (which is where I first used it) and Spacebattles, one of my regular internet haunts as of now.

If you've read any fic by me, you know there are two constants to my work: delays and bad jokes.

Ongoing Fics:
Epidemiology: My attempt at writing the Prototype setting from the point of view of normal human characters. As such it's a horror show; self-contained oneshots that don't end well. Updates are incredibly slow, but I am working on more scenarios.

My Completed Fics:
Tactical Idiocy Action: Metal Gear Solid: A humorous retelling of the epic game. Honestly, nowadays thinking about it kinda makes me cringe; a lot of the humor is pretty bad pop-culture references, it had a multitude of typos, and I think I could've just done a better job all around. All that said, I'm glad that the readers liked it as much as they did, and that I managed to finish it after about three years of delays.
Left4Dead: Teamwork: A humorous take on the "No Mercy" campaign of Left 4 Dead. It's creation was spurred on by my 360 RRoD'ing about a week after I got the game, It's mainly based on observations on how most playthroughs involve a mix of skilled players and people who really should read the manual a bit more.
Not Defined By a Memory: A oneshot involving the elevator scene from Prototype. I originally wasn't planning on writing anything about it, because it's a fairly popular topic for fics, and a few other people have done a much better job writing it than I ever could. That said, I decided to write it, but try and go against the obvious ending that scene would imply. Nowhere near canon thanks to Prototype 2, but I kinda like it anyways.
Mittens: Dana Mercer could use a kitten. A few friends convinced me to write Alex getting her one. It was a fun, cracky idea that resonated with readers in a way that I could not have predicted.
Sibling Rivalry: First serious, multi-chapter work that I finished. I found Zoe Baker a far more interesting character in REVII than Ethan or Mia Winters, and Lucas's awfulness was quite entertaining to write.
Christmas With The Bakers: A weird little idea that popped into my head a week before Christmas, which I hurried to churn out in time for the holiday; an Christmas-themed REVII horror anthology. It was a silly idea, but I rather enjoyed it.

My More or Less Abandoned Fics:
Random Idiocy 3: Nemesis: RI3 has the same overall premise of TIA (Bastardize one of my favorite games), but it's based around Resident Evil 3. I wouldn't count on seeing any updates to this one; frankly, I think I did a much worse job writing this than any chapter from TIA. Probably, in my opinion, my worst fic that still exists.
The Hunger: Breaking my own rule about not writing serious fiction until I am able to write better, I started a Mortal Kombat fanfic taking place after MK Deception. I managed to write one chapter before falling prey to writer's block. At least I think that one chapter is vastly superior than my previous attempts at serious fiction.
Halo: Idiocy Evolved: It's another sarcastic novelization of a game I love. Something I noticed while doing the RE3 parody was that games with less talking are harder for me to turn into funny words. Since Halo is more about shooting than talking, I couldn't get past the introductory cutscene.
Tactical Idiocy Action 2: Sons of Liberty: A sequel to the original Tactical Idiocy Action. It's been over a year since I updated, and I haven't thought much about it since then. I don't know why, but I just can't focus on these novelizations like I used to. I apologize to all the readers who followed this fic.
RvB: The Flood: As a result of writer's block on the above mentioned fics, I decided to start an entirely new fic to get writer's block on! And get writer's block I did, leading me to declare it DOA.
Syndemic: My second attempt at writing a Prototype/Resident Evil crossover, the first of which I deleted from FFN. I dunno, I guess trying to retread the same ground dampened my enthusiasm for continuing it.

Fics Which May Show Up In The Future:
Well, I kick around ideas for fanfiction always (usually whatever game I'm playing at the moment); I generally type out very few of them. At the time of this writing, my attentions are mainly focused on Resident Evil and Prototype.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who has read my fics and given reviews. I appreciate your support.

Like a Dog Chasing Cars by RunMoogles reviews
They call it self-reflection, or self-discovery. I think it has more to do with realization. Epiphany. Maybe even close enough to the denouement. In that case… then what? The end of the infection didn’t necessarily imply the end of me… did it? POST-GAME.
