An Englishman who likes to write in his spare time, and is currently finished with the first draft. The story is a fantasy, set in a fictional world of Elves, Humans, Orcs, Ogres, Trolls, and Dwarves. However, with undead Vampires, Banshees, and other menacing monstrosities, the story tells of a coming Doomsday. Called the Tales of Sarkim, the book revolves around characters, who interact with the world around them, and shows the scars of war. Can the characters come to terms with their own feelings, while changing the world around them, into a brighter future? There is social commentary, in the sense that some elements of the story revolve around rather comical aspects, that show the downfalls of modern society. The book specifically calls out on the monarchy versus democracy debate, and which one is more efficient at dealing with an ever changing society.
I'm not afraid to kill characters off in my story. I've killed off a fair few in this single one. I will kill more off. I want to show the world of war from as many eyes as possible, and how things that happen on the orders of the few, can have lasting consequences to those below. To do this, I may kill a character off, to give more time to new characters. This acts similarly to Naruto, where characters are surpassed by the next generation. I’ll always dedicate to time to a specific character that I intend to kill, so when you see more of his name, a death flag should be raised. Oh, he’s talking to the main character? Kill!
I do not consider myself a strong writer, yet I hope that I'll be able to make my first book enjoyable to as many people as possible, so as to make as much money as possible form it. I think that's what all authors write for, after all. Fun? What's that? Money! I am especially bad at writing conversations, because having one in person, and typing one, is entirely different. The new style I have tried, helps me overcome this, by giving more freedom to the reader. Expressions? What do you think he's looking like. Sort of like a play, really. Lazy writing? Shakespeare did it.
I like to listen to foreign songs, so I spend a lot of my spare time rummaging through youtube and spotify, desperately trying to find a catchy song (yeah I know). My love for foreign music is one of the things that helped get me into anime, and at first I judged anime mainly on their opening and ending songs.
I am on Steam, where I play strategy games like Total War and Victoria II. I've made guides on there, where I've recieved both appreciation and criticsm. People just can't handle the sarcasm, I guess.
I am currently doing an extra year at college in order to get to university. Would be there this year but took a course that turned out to be useless in my last college. Yay for me! Seriously, though, never bother with City and Guilds - It really doesn't add to UCAS, no matter what level you're doing it at.
I generally like to binge watch anime, and don't hate me but I prefer dubs as well. I have watched subs, such as the Bakemonogatari series, and do when no dub is available, but I do watch dubs when possible.
I am always looking for new recommendations on anime, I don't really mind any type of anime, either. However, music anime is my favorite. If you want to share recommendations then feel free to add me, I'll most likely accept.
Some of the top anime I have watched:
Akagami No Shirayuki Hime
Love Chuunibyou and Other Delusions

How I rate anime:
I rate anime according to how likely I am to rewatch it. Each time I rewatch I will alter my rating accordingly. Sometimes it won't change, other times it will. You'll see a lot of 10's if you search through my anime list, as a lot of anime I've not rewatched yet but do plan on doing.
If you see a five, then that means I really didn't like the anime, and will most likely never look at it again.
Anything below five was enough to make me throw up. Madoka Magika is perhaps the only anime I've rated as a one.
So thanks for taking the time to read this, and I've got a few youtube videos for you to listen to as a goodbye gift:
