"I don't try to fit in. I try to act in a way so that no one can ignore me." Summing me up is pretty simple. I love to read and write. I'm 39% insane (its official). I'm a nerd and love to meet other nerds. So yeah, you could just leave right now and pretty much everything there is to know about me. I'd like to think however that the other minute details of my life are amusing and/or interesting so if you're waiting for a bus, trying to procrastinate, or simply trying to be an internet stalker then read on! My name is Starwarsfreak117. You'll never guess why. It's because I love Lord of the Rings. See? Told ya. Ok... so I may be a little obsessed with Star Wars... just a little. I came to this site through the one facebook advertisement that ever did me any good. I love it here. I've met lots of awesome people (See section: The Next) grown as a writer (I hope!) and finally found a constructive outlet for all the raw, untamed, creative energy that was close to causing a massive yet spectacular explosion due to dangerous levels of buildup. My style of choice is First Person writing. I like it simply because it's more conversation (and I love to talk) and because I love to weave in my own sense of humor, personality, and other details about my life. I believe the best kind of fiction is 90% fiction and 10% truth. It is typical for me to put in pieces of my own life into my writing. I very much enjoy Science Fiction, Fantasy, and mild romance. I also excel at writing nonsense rhyming poetry that rhymes simply for the sake of being amusing. I am an American who is currently residing in Portugal until June/July of 2013. (I have a blog at missionimportugal.wordpress.com) My future plans include: Returning to the United States, going to college to Major in Musical Theater and Film/Video Production and Minoring in... you guessed it! Fiction Writing. That's really it for me. I love to write so if you have an idea and are looking for an author, send it my way and I can guarantee that I will at least give it a look! Thanks for stopping by! People who fill up my notifications with AWESOME. (It is unconfirmed that some of their middle names might also be EPIC) DTMN: It is hard to explain the depth of his writing prowess. He was part of the first collab. I ever joined here in Protagonize. He is full of great ideas, pleasant conversation, and downright amazing writing. DTMN has joined me on my quest to find Ramen noodles somewhere in Europe. ChimeraKiller2: Chimera makes me incredibly jealous. I am thrilled every time he tells me of a new story idea. It then takes about 7 seconds for me to get a frowny face and exclaim "Now why couldn't I have thought that?!?" His ideas are brilliant, his chapters and characters are even more brilliant. He is the one who thought up the idea for the first collab. I ever joined here in the world of Protagonize. Shally16: I am one of three people on the Earth who is allowed to call her "Shallz." She is a great author, and happens to be the female counterpart to nearly every character I write in a romance story. Together Shallz, Seed, and Myself, recently finished "Forgotten Attraction" The first completed work that any of us had been involved in. The sequel is already in the works! IHateCEDA: The one peeve I have about IHateCEDA (Seed) is that he enjoys turning a happy situation into a depression-fest. He was also involved with Shallz and I in "Forgotten Attraction." I'm quite sad that that is the only story that we have worked together in, because I enjoy his monstrous chapters. I think his record is just over seven thousand words in one chapter. BEAT THAT. Nyxie: Describing Nyx is... interesting. She has a great personality, and makes writing, brainstorming, and just plain chatting very fun. She is full of energy and excitement and interesting ideas... and she loves cookies. Never forget that. She also helped me create the worlds best emote. WhiteChocolate: His girlfriend likes white chocolate. She also likes him. Thus they became almost the same thing. Not only is he great writer (which you can now see for yourself as he FINALLY posted a chapter!) but he is my real life best friend. We are currently planning a series of three novels, and have started the first. We hope to to someday finish them and publish them, both to protagonize and then the world!!!
