Author has written 11 stories for Dark Cloud, Final Fantasy: Tactics Advance, and Mega Man.

The Several is a collective of minds, made up of several young men, women, and a toaster who love to draw, write, share, and love.

Unfortunately, there was a freak accident. Now he's only one person. A very very cute one, I might add.

The Several: A Story

The Several started first writing in 2005, creating his first fanfiction work for the game Dark Cloud 2 (PS2), called 'Distortion to the Forbidden'. Since then, The Several had been quietly getting fame for his many fanfiction works under the same game, making a total of nine stories. Trying to branch out to a different game and storytelling, The Several wrote'The Grand Law' fanfiction for the game Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. It did not do as well, and received mediocre reviews. The Several stayed in writing for the Dark Cloud 2 franchise for a while after that, but realized soon that he had a lot of work ahead of him to become a better writer.

Grammar, sentence structures, pacing, story flow, paragraphing, etc. A writer's work is never easy, but there is no real test than to try again. It was then, a year after, that The Several tried again to branch out of his storytelling capabilities. 'Zero Network Transmission' fanfiction for the 'Mega Man' game series was created in 2006, and received a lot of helpful criticism. This was The Several's real step in trying out different styles, different ways of telling the story with a different plot. But he wanted something more, something better than the fanfiction he had always been writing...

One day, in the middle of 2006, a writer friend of The Several had inspired him to write his own original stories. Suddenly moving to FictionPress and writing his own original material, The Several left FanFiction behind, and an unfinished business that would haunt him forever. The Several was suddenly no more... and he was now known as Bleu Ciel.

His first original story, 'The Black Commandment,' was posted in 2006, but was removed a year later due to discontinuation. After a year and a half of hard work, The Several realized once again how immature not his writing was, but his original storytelling capabilties was. There was no, execution, no excitement, filled with plotholes, and a series of passe cliches. For the majority of the next couple of weeks, The Several thought he would write no more.

Hope came in the form of encouragement and willpower, as The Several's middleschool English teacher had encouraged him to move forward - along with his inner strength and vow to never give up his writing dream. Then it came near the end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007 that The Several wrote two original stories - a parody-comedy called 'Demon-O's and a serious science-fiction story called 'A World Without Cure'. The original parody-comedy story did really well, but it was 'A World Without Cure' that really inspire the writer to become who he wanted to be. And so, it hit him: his first full novel shall be this story. Another story was also created in 2006 called 'Chronicles of Dusk' that shared a small fame due to its comedy, style, originality, and use of the Japanese folklore and mythology.

'A World Without Cure' is to receive a full-novel rewrite, and will most likely be discontinued from FictionPress altogether. From then on, The Several decided to post all future stories to his art website in DeviantArt, where his nickname The Providence creates art for his story, as well as some fanart. 'The Black Commandment' is to also receive a full rewrite, changing the story mostly in its entirety, renamed to 'Children of Vetruvia', which will also be uploaded in his DeviantArt account.

One day in 2009, the person once known as The Several, decided to look over his oldest works. It was there that he found 'Zero Network Transmission' - his only unfinished work from his days back when he wrote in FanFiction. Currently on a writer's block, he decided to give the story a try once more, with updated writing from his experience in the past 5 years, and a new chapter finally uploaded. It was then... that The Several came back, ready to finish what he had started.

He came to realize what he had left behind, and why it was important that he did. The Several was back, but Bleu Ciel and The Providence was with him. Now, today, and forever, he will be that one person - the person who strives to be a great writer.

Currently, this person is continuing 'Zero Network Transmission', and has promised to finish it with all his strength, experience, and writing abilities. He is also still writing original stories, though no current items will be written for FictionPress, and will all be uploaded to his DeviantArt account, though his stories still remain at his FictionPress website.

For now, he is busy re-writing his two original stories, 'A World Without Cure' and 'Children of Vetruvia' for a chapter-by-chapter release for DeviantArt, as well as a new children's story with a yet unknown title, and a hip modern-punk style love story called 'Rev'.

The rest is history.
