I am nowhere near this awesome. I'm also neither black, nor do I have that much hair
I'm a 25 year old from the east coast of the United States. I recently received a Master of Arts in Theology degree and currently work in a school office. I identify myself as a non-denominational Christian, but am most definitely not The Fundamentalist
. I don't discuss religion on the internet often because it rarely ends well
, but the core of my belief is that each person should attempt to show respect and love for one another regardless of whether it's easy or fun, and look out for the best interests of our fellow human beings. After all, Jesus himself said that the two greatest commandments were "Love God" and "Love each other."
Outside of that, I really enjoy creative writing, as well as analyzing how stories are written, hence why I'm here. The medium doesn't really matter much when it comes to analysis, but I tend to stick to writing when I do creative stuff. Most of what I write is fanfic, because I'm too much of a perfectionist to put much original work out there without continuously fixing it. I am
currently working an original work, but I'm not going to post any of it here until I actually get enough done to be worth posting.
I've also recently attempted to learn to draw ponies, and you can see my horrible attempts here.
Is also the Forum Herald
for the fanfic subforum.
Stuff I've written
My only currently active major story is
- A Delicate Balance: A Friendship Is Magic story about Twilight and Applejack. Yes, it's a Shipping story, but I'm taking great pains to avoid the typical pitfalls associated with such stories and keep it in character as much as possible. The goal is simply to see what it would actually look like if Twilight started to develop romantic feelings for one of her friends, and how it would affect her relationships with everyone else.
I'm also working on and off on various other minor projects.
My other major projects include the following:
- Nerima Magistra Nelly Magi: Mahou Sensei Negima! retold, but will all of the genders reversed. Came about as a result of discussion in the Negima forum thread about whether or not the Double Standard involved would make it possible to do it. So I decided to write it and see what changes needed to be made. Also, the first half dozen chapters kinda suck, so bear with those. I didn't have any idea what I was doing when I started out. I still want to get back to this eventually, but given that the above story is far more popular it almost always takes priority.
- Caelum Contortum: Snarled Stories: My first attempt at a Mega Crossover; easily the most ambitious project to date. Numerous characters from various franchises find themselves in the Negima! universe and have to cope with their situation as they try to figure out what happened and how they can get home. Starts as a crossover between Negima! and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. I kinda bit off more than I could chew with this one, and it's currently on indefinite hiatus.
- Artifact Abuse: A Mahou Sensei Negima! comedy fic centering around Haruna's misuse of her artifact. I may add to it if I ever get a decent idea.
I have a deviantart account here
, which contains my (overly long) analytical reviews of the 2nd season of Friendship Is Magic
, along with other various fanfic snippets that are too short to be worth posting elsewhere.
I also have a tumblr here
, which is just my random thoughts about things, predominantly the first season of Friendship Is Magic
and video games.
I also also have a Fimfiction account
with the rest of my pony stories on it.
Note that due to Attention Deficit Creator Disorder
all of these things tend to update sporadically.
