Behold! I have brought a doughnut: I've been PbP role playing for nearly... God, how long has it been, now? Ten years? Is that it? I'm getting up there, aren't I?! Since I'm a control freak, you'll mostly find me GM'ing stories rather than joining them. Don't take offense to that or anything, it's just how I've always RP'd. I get an idea and I want to share it, and rarely do I venture into someone else's imagination (I guess I'm shy). The stories I write and (maybe) join all have a modern air to them, even the fantasies. Science fiction is definitely a favorite of mine, especially those that draw from Orwellian concept. Some authors that have inspired my writing are: Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald (anyone seen the new Gatsby movie?), C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ayn Rand, George Orwell, and a few others. So yeah, I'm a sucker for the classics and intellectuals (which my own ego would count myself a member of). Other than reading the classics, however, I get an equal amount of muse from listening to underground music falling in the new age and glitch genres. Dubstep? Not really a fan of the grungy/industrial feel, but drum step and glitch hop is a different story. Mainstream, overplayed crap on the radio, however, has nearly become poison to my ears. I often find myself tuning the station over to some classic rock. The Eagles, I believe, blow Chris Brown out of the water. And their gold isn't something that Lil' Wayne can taint with his "remix, babe"'s. That's all you get to know about me for now. So yeah... nice site. And I like how these posts have an auto-save function, how cool is that?!
