Author has written 4 stories for Fantasy, and Romance.
Oh glorious reader, you humble me with your gracious appearance on my profile page.
However, I highly doubt you know who I actually am. I go by the dashing appellation of TheGrayOutcast on this here patch of fertile internet space, though you may (should you choose to make conversation) call me Gray. I am an English teenage male and I am gay, so there may be some M/M in my stories. Possibly some F/F or straight but... less experience means less descriptive and it'll probably end up awful. I will attempt to write a chapter or two every weekend or so, but I am a slothful person so this will be inconsistent. This aside, I shall move onto other things. I.e what I like to write about.
Favourite themes to write about
- Fantasy: Always my stories will contain some sort of fantastical element. It's my only way to escape the doldrums of my life. Vampires, magic, werewolves, demons, anything that is not the norm and most probably never will be. Most commonly used of these is the concept of superpowers because, c'mon, who hasn't ever thought "I wish I could move stuff with my mind" or whatever.
- Man love: Not to go all fangirl on the world but gay relationships will ALWAYS appear in what I write. It's who I am and who most of my friends are too so it's almost an obligation to get a little bit of gay lovin' into every story.
Typical characters to use when writing
- Kick-ass female protagonists: Women in stories are often under-used and under-rated so I try to give the sexy ladies in what I write the little boost and turn them from, I dunno, the demure librarian into the great mistress of the dead with control over those who live or die.
- Heartless and manipulative antagonists: No point having a half-arsed villain that isn't bent on trying their hardest to generally fuck with the good guys. Or even the world. "Why?" isn't the question to my villains, "why not?" is, and anyone with a valid excuse doesn't tend to last too long.
- That one witty character that always seems out of place: Hey, every book/story needs a bit of comic relief right? Little miss/mister sarcasm provides this for my stories and sometimes even the solution to a problem. Hopefully, you people like him/her.
What I like to read
I probably can't quite form this section properly, but I'll try. Always a strong plot line without too much deviation from the true idea, but twists and red herrings are never a bad thing. A sense of mystery or a chill factor in the setting or the actions within a story keep it gripping and fresh. Again, fantastical topics and plots are a must have, just to pique my interest. And another obvious one, guy love =^_^=
