Hey, guys, I'm FrostKnight! But you can call me Frost, or Knight, I don't really care. XD Well, I am a fanatasy author, and I live for reading and writing. I also love Supernatural (tv show) and Sherlock Holmes. Those are my obssessions, people. So that's me, I guess.2/28/2012 #10
Welcome, Frost.3/5/2012 #11
My pen name is Inspired-fighter, but I often go by Harley if you don't know me personally. I'm still young enough to be in high school and don't really plan to do anything with my life that involves writing. I actually want to major in stage theatre or earn my bar liscence. I love to read tragedy, romance, young-adult and mystery novels, as well as super-natural. I don't really 'dislike' any kind of story, if I don't like it, I won't read it. Simple as that. I'm a pretty honest, yet kind, open person and don't mind to talk to anyone and whatever. :)3/8/2012 #12

Preferred Genres to write: Fantasy, Mystery, Supernatural, Adventure
Preferred Genres to read: Fantasy, Supernatural, Some Romance, Classic Literature, anything really with good writing and a thought provoking plot

Hey...I'm new to all of this and I've been writing almost forever...I understand things more in writing than hearing someone explain it...To me writing is everything...It keeps me sane...My life has been hell though I'm still young and I have seen a lot of the cruelty people are capable of and I try to write a fantasy or escape where things may be better for everyone and hint in the pieces of the cruelty that could be much worse..."When you think you have it bad, there's always someone who has it worse"...So, I hope that maybe you guys can help me out a little bit with understanding the site...XOXO Alexandrianna...4/13/2012 #15
Welcome to the Cemetery Gates, Alexandrianna.4/13/2012 #16
Hi. I'm AJ. and stuff.
I like to write and am working on a new experiment that requires reader directional input. Other than that I like to read and review (but I can be harsh...). Um... yeah not really much else to say. :)4/25/2012 #17
Hey, AJ.4/25/2012 #18
Age: Looking forward to being legal (four months to go)
A Little About Myself: Sweeping people off their feet with a black belt in sarcasm. Though I try to be nice as of lately. Too many people are telling me that my honesty isn't really appreciated. And I still keep on being blunt. I'm stubborn like that. I like to read, write and paint touchy subjects in a humorous light. Some people think that I'm capable of being really serious.
Preferred Genres (Write): Don't really have any though I can't imagine myself writing poetry. That's just not my thing. Or manga. Actually, I have no idea what manga even is. So, everything else I prefer. I think.
Preferred Genres (Read): I'm not very picky though I tend to avoid horror stories. Nightmares just ain't fun even if some really dark and twisted thoughts tend to leave my mind from time to time. And, obviously, I don't read manga. Really, what is manga?
Anything Else?: I have a cat. He's got into a fight with some other cats and they almost ripped off his ear. I almost had a panic attack when I saw his adorable little self all bloody and miserable. But he's okay now.7/4/2012 #19

Ok, here we go.
Name: You can call me GoS
Old: Not yet, but that's maybe depending on from whom's perspective :D I'm 20, 21 this(2012) december.
A little 'bout myself: Love metal, though a huge part pretty many are fighting about if it is metal or not. Really like roleplaying, both pnp and computer/console. Read some manga/manwha, "common" comics, and can eat almost anything, also if it's combined with each other And some day I just wanna take a nonstop walk, just to see how far I will get
Preferred Genres (writing): Fantasy, mostly epic fantasy, but also parody, little sci-fi and psuedo-fantasy(or whatevertheheck it's called).
Preferred Genres (reading): Fantasy, mostly epic fanta... actually, the same as above
Anything else: Well... hm... can create a story just out of the air, but are terrible lazy about writing it down ' Treat me with cakes, and I'll be yours forever... damn! Now they know my secret *runs through the room, trips and fall, rise and continue running to the couch, jumps over it and hides behind. "Are they gone?"*7/8/2012 #21

|God of shadows
Thanks :) And I hope we will be doing more than just killing time :D7/8/2012 #23
For sure. Just jump into the threads. The forum isn't very active, unfortunately. But once people get going, I'm hoping things will pick up.7/8/2012 #24
|Silvia Hearten Calen
Name: Silvia, but you can also call me Sil, Silv, etc.
A little about you: When I was younger, I never dreamt I would ever pick up a pen and start writing. Believe it or not, what got me started was Twilight when it first came out. Don't judge, I enjoy the books and Ms. Meyer's twist on vampires but I have a rather low opinion of the movies. I have had a complicated and hard life, but I'm still smiling. :D I tend to look on the bright side of things, or at least that's what everyone tells me.
Preferred Genres to write: For the most part, supernatural or fantasy with action/adventure, romance, angst, mystery thrown into it. Quite literally, sometimes my stories decide what genre they fit into rather than me.
Preferred Genres to read: Really, almost anything really. As long as it's written well or has a good/interesting plot to it. If I don't like something, I stop reading it without a word.
Anything else?: Hmm, well I would like very much be able to finish one of my long-term stories, but so many ideas pop into my head that I'm unable to focus for very long on any of them. Maybe anyone has some tips for my predicament? Oh yeah! I also never thought I'd ever join a forum, but I figure what the heck? This looks like it could a lot of fun! :)7/11/2012 #25
Welcome to Just Killing Time, Silvia.7/11/2012 #26
Name: Call me Frost :)
A Little About You: Slightly insane; I'm not afraid to say it. I'm horrible at talking to people, so I'm a fairly quiet person. I love any type of rock/classic rock/metal/power rock etc (IE: Blacklisted Me, Icon For Hire, Asking Alexandria, Black Veil Brides, Led Zepplin, Metallica..... I also like a bit of electronic. I may be a bit of a sociopath at times, a little crazy at others. It switches.
Preferred Genres (Write): Fantasy, supernatural, a bit of horror. I'm just now getting into slash.
Preferred Genres (Read): Supernatural, historic fiction, manga, classic British literature, criminal profiling, etc.
Anything Else?: There's not really much else.7/14/2012 #27
Name: triptych317, but you can call me Trip if you want :D
A Little About You: I'm crazy, weird, slowly becoming more outgoing, and I like making new friends all the time! I'm deeply in love with music, I like anime, extreme sports, and a whole bunch of other stuff. My mind goes in a lot of different directions, but that's why I write :)
Preferred Genres (Write): I'll write pretty much anything. I mostly write romance and femslash, but if I were challenged to write in another genre, I wouldn't mind at all.
Preferred Genres (Read): Mystery/Suspense thrillers, manga, romance (young adult, not smut), chick lit, gay/lesbian
Anything Else?: Nope, not that I know of!7/26/2012 #28

Anything Else?: Well if you have been to fanfiction and love the genre Justice League X Batman, you see me listed in the authors as 'buddyBatmanWW'. I had been writing fanfiction for the last 2 years (about 165 chapters altogether in 15 stories). But I do have a flare for original fiction and poetry, and that's what I want to explore and nurture here. You can call me 'buddy', I'd prefer that! Hope to make some great friends here and learn a lot from them!8/14/2012 . Edited 8/14/2012 #30
