Author has written 3 stories for General, and Horror.I am David Macintyre. This is not my real name, but it's all you need to know.
I'm not an average author. I write what are known as 'darkfics'. Some people hate them, some people adore them just because of that. Those who see past the generic label and marks of the genre may find something that everyone can enjoy.
I write mostly for the area of Sonic the Hedgehog, and may be broadening into Resident Evil.
I am the kind of person who, if appointed head of Sonic Team, would turn the games into something less like Mario or Dragon Ball Z and into something more like Fight Club, Vanilla Sky or Memento (my three favorite movies), if that's any indication.
My favorite band, if I have one, is definitely Deftones.
I write what I think are 'real' stories. I define real stories as having:
I define 'n00b' stories, the kinds that really chap my ass, as:
Finally I think one of the lower forms of n00bishness comes when you decide to rewrite (bastardize) a movie, book, game or otherwise but simply replace the character's names with "Sonic," "Tails", and etc. I've seen people who do NOTHING but this, and it just proves that some wannabe writers don't have an original bone in their body.
I suggest extreme caution when creating a fan character (for my own humble tips on this, see my tutorial at Stephen Zacharus' site the Graffiti Wall: ). Self insertion fics are dumb, end of story. The story itself could be good (Falconess' "An Author's Nightmare" for instance), but personally I think putting yourself into the story is immature and a bad idea. If you have to do it, make it metaphorical or symbolic or some shit. I'm gonna be quiet now so I don't look like an idiot.
That is all I have to say for the time being, I think. If you feel bored or want to yell at me for any reason, add me to MSN: [email protected]
Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I hear my shotgun calling.
