I'm your average neighborhood writer and a sucker for shitty generic fantasy works.  I draw a bit too, nothing über fancy, so if you have any requests, you just have to sweet-talk me into it. Write me a whole stanza about how awesome you are or something.


Status: Alive and cursing myself why I've taken up such a big writing project (again!)

Hobbies: gushing about graphic design, reading a mix of lowbrow 'literature' and bad fanfiction, drawing people in victorian esque clothing and writing my own lowbrow stuff! I have read two of the three kings of manga too: Berserk, Vinland saga and Vagabond (still have to read that one.)

Oof, I like Berserk, but I think that Vinland Saga hits me harder. 

Update:  

Project reaching for home/little mage's potion shop currently being put onto hold. 

I do have something nice for Christmas, is about 50% done, some odd horror game I was penning for a while.

Some of my thoughts: 

Some ideas I have for shorter projects after little witch potion shop: murder mystery in the shape of the party game werewolves, incest horror island with an insanity meter, a time looping mcdonalds worker having to deal with a Karen and a guy desperately trying to ask a girl out in a bus. Oh and I want to one day dethrone the brony by getting a fanfiction story featured; thought about a fma fanfic about a soldier from amestris experiencing the war of Ishval. I think that I want to go for a shorter story before jumping into "reaching for home" again. (I have planned to do a short Karen time travel game next! Then we will go back to the plague story, then we will do the incest murder island or the werewolf story. At last perhaps the fma fanfic. Killing the brony can wait.) 

I'm gonna beat the soy dude. No hard feelings.

Featured Story Little mage's potion shop (and the curious adventures surrounding it)

Running a Potion Shop Has Never Been This Exciting!

The country of Riverrock had just discovered a brand new continent called Foundland. Settlers and hopeful souls flock to the promised land. One of them is the young mage Lise and her accomplished teacher. They set up a potion shop, build a house and decorated half of it. All things were fine and dandy till her teacher decided to fuck off and go on his own adventure. Now she has to run it on her own. 

This story is basically a mix between soothing slice-of-life activities,attempts at comedy and dark undertones. It will have two main endings and five side-endings. (for people who have trouble finding the mini arcs, please select this white space: herbs, study, potion, entrance.) More mini-arcs and extra content will soon be added. If you have any trouble getting a particular ending, feel free to message me. 

Entry for Endmaster's manifest destiny contest. 

 


Reaching for home

Gerden, capital of Marenostrum and the shiny beacon of factories and innovation is seized by an unknown plague. People are dying and the ruling parliament is getting restless. You, a promising doctor and doting father of a precocious son, are assigned to eradicate this threat once and for all. However, this task does not come easy as the priorities of the different factions of the parliament clash with the needs of the poor and your need to keep your son and yourself safe.

Me learning to script! Woohoo!

Both were really good stories. Aargh, it's actually difficult for me to decide. Why is everyone's prose so nice? I guess I have to go for story 2, because story 1 seems to belong to a bigger one left untold (and that I want to see more of)

Story 2 it is.

I'm even more amazed how you were able to get three people to start writing story prompts like crazy. Pfff.. it's ridiculously fast. I'm really getting curious what they have written! It's probably good.

I now wonder who the automatic winner is in the bracketed duel. If it's Bondoggle, then it might be the most surprising comeback I've seen.

I'm done too!


Beef with Soy: preliminary writing battle on 11/29/2021 5:05:09 PM

Well, I'll then take this post as a compliment, but I'm honestly not that great of a writer compared to Ebon. He's been doing this stuff longer than me and he's probably a native speaker as well. 

Nevertheless, I'm glad that you won't back out of my challenge. If you had read this message on the say of posting and if you don't mind it too much, I would want this battle finished as soon as possible. (What about starting from 30 november and having 2 December 23:59 EST as the deadline?) Otherwise, let's start it on saturday and have the deadline on monday 23:59 EST. Maximum wordcount is 2500 words as usual.

Fantasy is fine by me. As for the theme, pick whatever you think is going to increase the likelihood of you winning if you really want to have a free drawing. Let's not give Mizal any more stress than necessary.

Beef with Soy: preliminary writing battle on 11/26/2021 11:20:57 AM

Let's start this battle with a bang! With this thread I officially dare @Soy_No_More to a writing duel. Because I'm the challenger, I give Soy the leeway to choose the theme and the time. I can battle you tomorrow if that's what you want. 

To make it more interesting, if I lose, Soy gets a fully rendered drawing of his choosing from me (think of it as a fun little Christmas card and free labor) and my 100 points (a Christmas present to save you out of debt). If Soy loses, then I feel that it is his obligation to drop all his petty albeit slightly amusing feuds with Ebon. 

Look we even have beef! I like puns. I wanted to find a picture with beef and soy beans, but couldn't find any good ones.
