...What are you doing here? Don't you have anything better to do?

Wait, this is TV Tropes. Never mind.

[[MostTropersAreYoungNerds I'm a young nerd]] in every sense. I even have Asperger's, making me a TVGenius. I'm writing a book, (mentally) designing a video game, and (mentally) plotting a webcomic. Not sure if any of those will ever come to fruition, though. The book is most likely. Interestingly, they're all (possibly) [[GenreBusting Genre Busters]]: the book, ''Draconity'', is an AlternateHistory about a dragon AdventurerArchaeologist in TheUnmasquedWorld several decades after an AlienInvasion; the game, ''Alone'', is an open-world survival puzzle platforming shooter on a recently deserted island [-IN SPACE-]; and the webcomic, ''Reprisal'', is about a [[VigilanteMan vigilante]] [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified rebel]] [[TheHunter demon hunter]] on a BeyondTheImpossible RoaringRampageOfRevenge in a MundaneFantastic world that's ruled by said demons in an officially unofficial sense. And, for no apparent reason, everyone is a [[PettingZooPeople Petting Zoo Person]]. I don't know why; for some reason, it just feels right to have furries.

One of my first acts upon becoming a troper was choosing the page image for SuperpoweredEvilSide with one suggestion. Since then, I've been editing and adding things all around. I also wrote the first reviews for ''JustCause 2'' and ''MassEffect2''.

I'm on a robotics team; we get a game, build and program a robot for our game, and play against other teams and their robots. I do programming. One year, we went all the way to the world championship, but we didn't win. It was fun while it lasted, though.

I like action stuff, be it video games, books, or movies. In fact, all of my works stemmed from coming up with action scenes in my head. A halftrack chase through a mountain pass! Fighting a MiniMecha on a train! Slicing planes in half with [[MagneticWeapons railguns]]! A sword fight in an ancient alien doomsday device! Magic bullets that [[AbnormalAmmo create explosions on impact]]! Going GunsAkimbo while hanging upside-down from a chandelier! A helicopter chasing a [[LeParkour traceur]] across skyscrapers toward a [[ZeppelinsFromAnotherWorld zeppelin]]! A TraintopBattle across two side-by-side trains! Carsurfing gunfights! Magic users playing missile pong! Magically-justified BottomlessMagazines! Killing a demon with a [[KillSat missile satellite]]! Driving an APC with the thresher from a combine harvester through a zombie-infested mall! Putting a car on cruise control and hanging out the window to fire a shotgun while steering with your feet! Jumping from one plane to another in mid-flight! An ElevatorActionSequence on top of the elevator! Yes, [[ItMakesSenseInContext they all make sense in context]]. Somehow.

I also like a good story. However, if the action's good enough, it can justify the bad story, or lack thereof - it's part of why I like ''JustCause 2''. Combining both - a good story ''and'' good action - is a plus in my book, and is one of the reasons I like ''MassEffect'' and ''TheDresdenFiles''.

Interestingly, when I first started writing, I hadn't heard of the MarySue concept, but I practically went out of my way to avoid it. I gave my characters issues - anger problems, not very powerful, whatever - to create conflict, and therefore create a good story. When I heard about Mary Sues, I thought, "Why would anyone create a character that can win any fight? [[InvincibleHero That's boring.]]" I took several Mary Sue litmus tests, and most of my characters came clean first try, except for one that had issues that the test didn't address.

As part of ''Draconity'', I created Menyic, a fully-fledged {{conlang}} with its own [[https://docs.google.com/a/students.calvin.edu/document/d/1SALIfrhWNCIPHunMKKRs3hbHNroqa_BiyLQH-CWX8gM/edit grammar]] and [[https://docs.google.com/a/students.calvin.edu/document/d/1B56GhRGkzWR3zUavbFSjeUEHwwmDy8amHzxSJMrD4vk/edit lexicon]].

I wish I'd stuck with computer programming (I stopped at Visual Basic). You build robots and program them, that's pretty impressive. And you're writing a book. I envy people who have these kinds of talents. Good luck with your skills and interests. - @/BonsaiForest
* Thanks. And I just program the robots, not build them; it's a group thing, other people build the robots. It's a part of the FIRST Robotics Competition, if you're interested in that kind of thing. (The FIRST is an acronym - [[FunWithAcronyms For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology]] - not emphasis.) As for the book, I don't know how likely it is that it'll be published - when I wrote that, I was still a senior in high school.
I am leaving you a worthless message right here, so now you're "a victim of coicumstance". Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk! - {{Tropers/AlBundyFan365}}
* Oh noes!
I have determined you are a likable and agreeable individual. So, for all of our sakes, please try to not get eaten by elves. It would be a genuine shame if you were. Especially since you'd be feeding elves. -@/KillerClowns.
* That reminds me, I need to download ''DwarfFortress'' and work on my elven diplomacy skills there.
* If you want to put your comic in script form to send off to an artist, let me know. I'm working on putting together something from what you posted in the "see if you're hooked" thread already, just for practice, because it looks interesting. -{{Tropers/KyleJacobs}}
