My name is Darthen
An old fictionpress user. Twenty year old senior at the University of North Texas. I graduate next December. My major is Radio, Television and Film with a minor in German.
I started a website to serve my old stomping grounds here. It is an e-zine/blog with links to good fictionpress stories. I look for the best so you don't have to! To submit, go to the website at
My favorite authors, and the ones I sort of study to learn how to write, are Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allen Poe.
Favorite filmmaker : Quentin Tarantino (who else?) Pulp Fiction for the win!
I always pay back reviews. Always. If you have reviewed something of mine and I have not payed you back the review, just send me an e-mail or something, I probably forgot.
One more thing, NO MORE CHILDREN SAVING THE WORLD!! Just please, for dear god's sake, no more. It's been done to death and it isn't even a plausible story. NO MORE, please!! Dear god, stop! Elemental stories have been popping up recently as well; I've got nothing against those excepting the fact that it's always children. I have some advice; unless it's original in any way, don't write it. Just stop, add 10 years to the character’s age, add some sort of sage wise man and add an evil villain with a grudge. There, now you have a formulaic myth. Now, kill off someone's parents/family/wife/girlfriend. Then kill off one or more of the main characters. Now add some more plot twists. It won't be any more original, but at least it adds depth to a flat story. Oh yeah, and NO MORE CHILDREN SAVING THE WORLD.
Here's a general rule: Old enough to drink, old enough to save the world.
