Author has written 4 stories for Sci-Fi.
About me: My name is Josh, and as you might have guessed, I'm a young writer who needs an outlet, so eventually, I was led to this lovely hub of creativity. My interests are kind of all over the map, which I think translates into my writing with the blending of genres I often go for. My main thing is superheroes, though, hence the ridiculously long series of superhero stories you can find below! I truly wish to hone my craft since everything I know is self-taught from years of wasted time watching TV and reading comic books, so any and all feedback will be taken on board. I love interacting with my audience and I'm always up for a chat, so feel free to PM me or contact my Gmail account, crapnuggets202, for those things.

Regarding rewrites: In light of the completion of The Crusaders: Volume 1, I've decided in my egotistical perfectionism to go back through everything I've written so far and polish off the myriad grammar fails, fix wonky prose, correct formatting errors. expand on certain story elements, and spruce up spots of dialogue here and there to get the best I can get out of the story. Which means I'll be scrubbing through over 250,000 words. Which means you better appreciate the lot of it, you bastards (just kidding, you're great). Rest assured to people who've already been through it all, the events and heart of the story won't change.Completed rewriting: The Crusaders: Rising Star, The Crusaders: Volume 1 Chapters 51/63 Currently rewriting: The Second Planetary War Part 7 of The Crusaders: Volume 1 (Chapter 52) Upcoming new content: Day of the Heretics Part 3 of The Crusaders: Volume 2
Favourite People (not necessarily in any order):Casey Tyler - One of my top fans who brightens my day with her adorably written reviews. Check her out on AO3 and Fanfiction as well as her profile on this very site! Wintershadow35/Winter - Another invaluable fan who always gives me solid feedback and even more will to write. SnarkyScribe/Chris - A fellow reader of TV Tropes and a self-proclaimed 'amateur writer' who also has his own story going that you really ought to check out. Tiamatty - The hyper-dedicated fellow superhero story writer who was kind enough to allow me to use his characters for a special crossover story.
"Having devoured 30,000 years worth of stories and songs - and having read and watched and listened to everything from The Maxims of Ptahhotep to Infinite Jest - it's only now that I've come to realize three things - three bold and shining truths that I'll carry with me forever. One: Life is inherently tragic, and over far too quickly. Two: All art thrives on conflict. We valorise fiction because it helps us make sense of ourselves. Three: Season 4 of Community was a serious misstep." - Swerve, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye.
"Here's a little—whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism—I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page...look at what they've taken away." - Rung, Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye.
"Chaos already dominates enough of our lives. The universe is an endless, raging sea of randomness. Our job isn't to fight it but to weather it together on the raft of life. A raft held together by those few, rare, beautiful things that we know to be predictable." - Abed Nadir, Community.
"It's not your life, it's life. Life is bigger than you. Life isn't something you possess, it's something that you take part in and you witness." - Louis CK.
"A lot of people will say, like, I'm an aspiring artist, or I'm an aspiring writer. No. You're a writer. If you're doing that shit every day, that's what you are." - Danny, Game Grumps.
"It's very easy to act like a jerk, and then say, "Well, I'm a jerk, so that's that." But it's not like being a bloody werewolf, is it? It's just you making excuses for your excuses." - Dirk Gently, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.
Thanks for reading, and take care.
