Hello Raiders, nice to be here!
« on: October 04, 2017, 09:44:31 PM »
Hello everyone,

I'm II (read as 2nd like at the end of Elizabeth II) from the Philippines.

I am an aspiring writer focusing on dark fantasy with hints of sci-fi and/or horror where the need arises. I try to keep the fantasy and sci-fi side within what I consider as feasible and practical. Having studied engineering AND occult theory, I prefer to have my stories grounded in reality (although slightly leaning to fringe science and esoteric knowledge but not baseless). Such is the theme of my main project, my dream production, MAGUS, something I've been world building for 2 years now. Eventually I will draft the first few chapters once I have enough practice.

Which brings me to a oneshot project called Celestial Gods' Reverie, an action, slice of life comedy. I will post it soon. Hopefully you guys can give me some comments on the writing style and narrative so I can improve.

If I improve enough I might draft the first chapter or prologue of MAGUS, which if you like magic and dark fantasy with slight hints of horror and sci-fi, I promise will not disappoint.

I've already even spanned it over several arcs storyboard-wise but because of my illness, I could never draft a proper narrative.

What illness you ask? Never-satisfied-iosis. I can never seem to be satisfied with my work so I scratch it and draft a new one, but with no audience or mentor, I can find improvements.

Anyway, my hobbies are playing King's Raid US server, Total War Shogun 2 and Warhammer (old and 20K), read a lot of manga, watch a few anime, read horror and fantasy books, and currently listening to my favorite JRock band SPYAIR and favorite idol group STARMARIE check them out!

Thank you everyone!

 :ohmy: awkwardly enough my other illness is being uncomfortable with pictures of (or being nearby) people I consider beautiful. (Referring to .gif above) Seriously, I can't even shake hands with members of an idol group in a fan meet.

I look forward to working with people. Cooperatively or by force. Hahaha :P

I pretend to sleep? Actually even worse, if that was the only available seat, I'd actually just stand. It's not that I don't have confidence but rather I grew up lacking certain social skills. Haha

Oh I'm not shy. Ask anyone I that knows me IRL. I'm just really socially deficient.  :thumbsup:

I once thought of becoming a hermit.
Then again, the mountains nearby doesn't have wildlife to hunt and I don't eat vegetables. So I decided not to.

Ah yes, the hermit life style. Thought about doing that once in college. More specifically I thought about being some sort of monk or wise man. Though not much call for that kinda thing around here. No good mountains anyway.

Keep fighting against shyness!
