Name: Madness Soldier, The Madness, Trayce D. King or whatever you want to call me

Age: 23

Sex: Male

Ethnicity: African American/Afro-Brazilian

Occupation: Academic Coach (no, that does not mean a tutor...its more like a college advisor)

It's been over a year since I updated this profile so perhaps I should get on it. I started on Fictionpress in '05 but didn't put anything up till around '06 because of my immature and irrational fear of the internet. However, I got over it thanks to a co-writer by the name of Darket whose story The Drifter made me want to put up something to see if I had what it took to hang with the people here. Now, six years later, I am one of the old men on the site at the ripe old age of 23. Granted, I know that means I am still incredibly young by adult standards but I am still aniki-san age to a lot of kids on the site.

Regardless, I am a simple person. I typically write in the manga section but have recently tried my hand at horror and noir/mystery and will almost always write in the young adult section. If there is anything else you want to know about me, just ask. Or don't. I could personally care less. Also, if you review anything I write, I will almost certainly always return the favor. Be warned though, I went to school and have a degree in Creative Writing so I might make the review long winded if it has to be.

Likes: I enjoy alot of different stuff. I love anime and manga, manga being the better of the two. My favorite manga are Grappler Baki (Grappler Baki, New Grappler Baki and Baki: Son of Ogre), Garouden, Holyland, History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi, Ultra Red, Kinnikuman (Kinnikuman, Kinnikuman Nisei and Kinnikuman Lady), Bleach, Fairy Tail, Shaman King, Shamo, Teppu, All Rounder Meguru, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru, Air Gear, Tenjho Tenge, Toriko, Rosario Vampire, DNAngel, Flame of Recca, MAR: Marchen Awakens Romance, Aki-Sora and Futari Ecchi.

I am also heavy in Tokusatsu, which is Japanese for special effects show. Basically, these are your shows like Super Sentai, and Kamen Rider. My favorite toku shows are Kamen Rider OOO, Kamen Rider Double, Kamen Rider Kabuto, Kamen Rider Kiva, Kamen Rider Den-O, Mahou Sentai Magiranger, Jyuken Sentai Gekiranger, Madan Senki Ryukendo, Tomica Hero Rescue Force, and Garo. These shows heavily influence my writing so if someone shouts, "HENSHIN!", then you know it came from Japan!

I am a huge comic book geek. Period. I am geeking on a lot of different stuff right now but the main ones are Incredible Hulk (I'm a Hulk fan and this series just makes it so much better), Aquaman, Teen Titans (I like the new line up of kids and it already has a darker tone), Red Hood and the Outlaws (Jason Todd is my favorite DC character now), Hulk (the one with the Red Hulk),The Ravagers (it is pretty much a second Teen Titans book...if the Titans were killers and were being chased by an organization hell bent on making them into walking extinction level events), Ultimate X-Men (I am reading through the trades now and man is it good), Wolverine and the X-Men (Logan running a school..c'mon, tell me that isn't entertaining), Xtreme X-Men (the first issue was great, now to see if it holds up to snuff), Scarlet Spider (I'm from Houston, I have to read this) and Venom (the new series with Flash Thompson as the 'special ops' Spiderman).

While I am a dork, I am also a jock. I was a wrestler as a part of my university's wrestling team in the 184 weight class. I also like to play other sports including but not limited to football, baseball, tennis and ultimate frisbee. As my info states, I am a MMA fighter who specializes in submission grappling so I do a lot of different martial arts including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Sambo, Free Style Wrestling, Kajukenbo (my main fighting style), Judo, Muay Thai, Eskrima and many others. Honestly, I am addicted to the martial arts. I also compete on the sport karate circuit, participating in traditional kata, traditional weapons and point sparring.

I like movies and what not so I have a couple of favorite actors and actresses.

Actors: Terrence Howard, Michael Jai White, Tony Jaa, Fernando "Jay" Huerto, Scott Adkins (the fucking new age bruce lee), Joseph Gorden-Levitt, Jean Claude Van Damme

Actresses: Eva Mendes, Meghan Good :D, Mikie Hara, Aoi Sora, Sunny Smith, Rosario Dawson, Teraji P. Henson, Jennifer Lawrence

Music wise, I am open to all forms of music. I dig Visual Kei alot, especially the older stuff like Malic Mizer, Dir En Grey, and X Japan. My real passion though is Hip Hop and R&B. My favorite Hip Hop artist are Big K.R.I.T., The Lower Class, Kendrick Lamar, Destorm Power, Common, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, B Simms, True Cinema, Dragon Ash, B-Dash, Kanye West, Ice Cube (his older stuff off the Bootlegged Album, and Americakkk's Most Wanted), Snoop Dog (also his older stuff, but I do like Sensual Seduction), Nyne, Traphik, Lil Crazed, Alyssa Marie, D-Pryde, J. Reyez, Wax, Lecrae, Trip Lee and Cross Movement. R&B wise its John Legend, Erika Badou, Llyod, Ne-Yo, Trey Songz, Johnny Taylor, Koda Kumi, Boyz 2 Men, and many others. I also dig Jazz and acoustic crossroads Blues. The stuff that just drowns your soul is great material to drive and write to.

Dislikes: There isn't much I don't like. I hate biggots, and racists because all of my life I've had to deal with that bullshit. So, now I proudly wave it in their faces that my president is African American and White so try to hate him if you want! LOL! I am not too fond of child molesters and rapists and I will personally castrate you with my bare hands and feed them to you if I catch you. I have people in my life that that has happened to and I refuse to see that happen to anyone else. I am not too partial to those who try to stifle my intellectual growth by placing restraints on me. I think outside of the box, and if you can't deal with it, then ignore me. I don't talk to people I don't like and I don't expect that you should speak to me if you don't like my opinions either.

Other than that, I'm pretty open. I used to be homophobic, but now I have alot of gay friends and they are just like anyone else. I would be considered metro I guess because of my tendency to primp and what not, but I don't care if it makes me seem gay. I like to look good, and believe you me, I'm as straight as an arrow. But I don't like gay bashing. In joking, its okay if you know the person and they don't mind it, but just because you don't know them, doesn't give you the right to hate on them. We are one human race. Can't we all just get along?

My Writing

The World Belongs to Him- My first single story in a long, long time. It is the first story in a series I wish to write on here entitled The Radiant Fantasy Saga and it tells the tale of Trayce King, a warrior drawn to the magical world of Ether, by a princess' prayer. From there, Trayce and Anja, the princess, must work together in order to save her world from certain doom and destruction. It is inspired by Kingdom Hearts, Adventure Time, Final Fantasy, and a lot of other role playing elements.

Last Update: June 6, 2013 (Chapter 1- A Hero From Another World)

Production Update: So life caught up to me these last two weeks and caused a halt in chapter production. However, I plan to make an update this weekend but, if I do not, you may expect a MASSIVE update of three or more chapters next week. I don't like letting people down so I will not let my fans go wanting.
