Hello, dear readers. I'm not particularly good at introducing myself through the written word, but I'll give it a shot.
I'm an English and psych major with a creative bent and too much time on my hands, so I do a fair bit of writing. Most of it's pretty bad, but I'd like to think that at least a few of my stories are worth reading.
Before we go any further here, let me clarify something about how I write: I have no idea what's going to happen before I write it. I don't outline, I don't plan — I simply create characters and a setting (or in the PPC's case, use other people's settings), throw them together, and watch gleefully as it all catches fire. This often leads to shenanigans and explosions and hilarity, but sometimes it just leads to shitty plot and writing, as I'll look back on something I wrote a few weeks later and realize what utter crap it is.
Don't be afraid to concrit. Really, don't. I WANT feedback — it improves my writing. If I write something that's just utter shit, tell me, please, and I'll do my best to make it better. I do, however, request that when you do criticize my work, you do so in a polite, well thought-out way. If you think I've done something horribly wrong, suggest ways for me to fix it instead of just pointing and shouting.
... Whew, glad that's over with. Now, sit back and relax. Put your feet up, make yourself comfortable, and let me tell you a story...
Here they are, in no particular order. Yes, there are rather a lot of them.
LotR, Halo, Mass Effect, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Tammy Pierce's stuff, David Weber's stuff, The Dresden Files, Codex of Alera, Harry Potter, Warhammer 40,000, Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime, Bleach, Code Geass, Claymore, Sherlock Holmes (novels), Battle Angel Alita/Gunm, Doctor Who, Narnia, Future Diary, Star Wars, Star Trek (Original Series), Monty Python, Final Fantasy (IV, VII, VII: Advent Children, VII: Dirge of Cerberus, X, X-2, XII: Revenant Wings, XIII), DOOM, Zelda, Abhorsen, Bourne Trilogy (movies AND books), Metal Gear, Trigun, Negima!, Black Lagoon, Strike Witches, Fire Emblem, Metroid (except Other M, which he does not acknowledge as canon), Inheritance Cycle (read them, Not Sure If Want), Hellsing, and probably some others I've forgotten.
Bear in mind that these are just the canons that I know well enough that I'd be confident doing a mission in them — there are many, many others.
