Howdy, everyone. I started on Fanfiction scoping out some action for Total Drama, and I wound up hooked. By the way, I am looking for an author who can publish my ideas for Total Drama crossover stories. Potential subjects include: "Pokemon", "Mortal Kombat", a show from Italy called "Huntik Secrets and Seekers", and "X-Men Destiny". If nobody remembers the 4th one, it's a video-game made by Silicon Knights that critics seem to have bashed. Despite that, I find it a great game worthy of trying at least once. Unfortunately, thanks to a recently resolved lawsuit, all unsold copies were destroyed by the end of 2012, so you might not get the chance. I recommend looking it up on Youtube for more info. Anyone interested in helping me with my story ideas need only send me a private message and I will try to fill you in on the details.
A while ago, I discovered a story on DeviantArt called "Chat Blast" written by Dynamite64, AKA Rodolfo, AKA Rod, and it is amazing. Basically, he, his nephew Isaiah, his OC Rafael, and sometimes Rod's cousin interview characters from TV, video games, and even other users on DeviantArt in a talk show with quite a bit of comedy. The link is as follows: http:///
Next on the agenda, I've recently created a website by way of this . Since I was given free-reign over how to pull it off, I ended up making it a place where people could post and view all the jokes they want. I call it "Shecky Green Joke Forum", in honor of a nickname I earned through my comedy. Anybody who wants in is more than welcome to partake.
It is at this point that I would like to bid a very fond farewell to someone who may be gone, but they will never be forgotten, even if nobody other than me remembers them.
OBITUARY FOR THE LATE MR. COMMON SENSE
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and Maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Calpol, sun lotion or a band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.
He was outlived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
And here's some proof of his demise. Apparently, SEVERAL stories are being removed and permanently lost just because of either lemon and/or extreme violence even though it's completely plausible to just strengthen the filters or even just add an MA rating and some better filters and disclaimers. But they aren't doing that. Instead, lots of stories are being cut down and disposed of without even giving people a chance to deal with it. There go entire sections of base material, which means anything like Mortal Kombat, God of War, or any other source material of the like. The nerve of some people. There is a petition going around to gather support against such idiocy, and it needs a lot of signatures. It has already been signed by the likes of BlackRevenant, SpiritWriterXXX, niko56, Cottontop, and DIM666-Insane Leader, among others. Odds are if you go to their profiles, they will be able to help you find out how to sign the petition.
Now that that is out of the way, I would like to introduce an original character.
Name: Arianna Skymore
Nationality: Italian with some Native American (the shaman kind) on her father's side
Occupation: Air-Force pilot with environmental work on the side
Appearance: cobalt-blue eyes, long black hair, skin slightly more tan than Bridgette's, similar height and body shape, green eagle tattoo on her right shoulder, which she values as a representation of her animal spirit, and claw marks on her arms and scars on her left leg from when she was 7
Natural Attire: custom-made, long-sleeved red-and-gold corset-shirt with a flap over the right shoulder with a zipper that can open to reveal her tattoo and a pocket on the lower arm of each sleeve, black multi-pocket sweatpants, and boots to match
Personality: calm, cool, and always willing to risk everything to help the innocent by any way she can, but if she catches on about high-level immoral actions, like rape, murder, or framing someone for crimes they didn't commit, and those responsible are still alive, she flips out, tracks them down, and clobbers them so severely, they end up in need of trillions of dollars worth of surgery just to be mistaken for victims of a horror movie slaughterhouse. Decency is the only major requirement for anybody to qualify for a meaningful relationship with her. Tolerance of her temper issues is a relatively close second.
Special Capabilities: Using her shamanic heritage, Arianna can call upon her eagle spirit to guide her in the use of spirit energy. She uses this to travel longer distances in less time, strike with frightening precision, and accelerate the healing process. She has also honed her already above-average analytical and observation skills to develop what she calls "Chrono-Vision", with which she can analyze any situation and formulate an excellent response in what seems like the blink of an eye.
Fear: Hunters and/or any simulation of hunting
Story: Arianna was born in Olympia, Wasington on July 4th, 1991. Contrary to that, her only connections to American history are learning about it in school and sharing the beliefs that led to the founding of the country. Her parents moved to Canada on Arianna's 4th birthday. When she was 7, her father Atticus went missing in the woods during Hunting season, but her endeavors to find him led to being caught in a bear-trap, a pit-fall, and a cage full of scared, frantic animals all in the same day. This led to her fear of hunters and/or any simulation of hunting. Shortly after that, she went through his possessions and found a tome containing records of Native-American shaman rituals. It turns out her paternal ancestor was a shaman who kept a record of his findings so his legacy could be preserved and improved upon by any of his descendants. Arianna has been studying this tome whenever she got the chance, but it still wasn't quite enough to help her get over her fear of hunting. Three years after her father disappeared, her bisexual mother Carol fell in love with and married Olivia Farendo, the psychiatrist who was paid to help Arianna cope with her fear and the trauma it came from, and it didn't take long for Arianna and Olivia to grow close. After high school, Arianna signed up for the Air Force, where she earned her driver and pilot licenses. Since then, she has been active military in Canada, but in spite of this, she still finds time to help environmental groups of all kind with the obvious exceptions of those who get so obsessive they resort to willingly partaking in immoral methods.
Arianna definitely has her inner balance sorted out.
Now we turn to the hero I made for an M.M.O. known as "DC Universe Online".
Hero title: NECROMEN
Secret identity: There's a reason it's called 'secret' identity. But I will say that the hero is, in fact, a female.
Power set: Ice (largely focused on damage and staying alive)
Weapon: Mastered hand-blasters. Some time later, another hero NECROMEN knows from the same league helped her spread out her training to boost damage output. NECROMEN spent a time fighting with dual pistols until she could afford better hand-blasters. NECROMEN currently fights using the hand-blasters sold by the Flash Museum souvenir vendor in Central City.
Mentor: Started out with Batman before honing her skills with training simulations which replicated hero missions overseen by Superman and Wonder Woman.
Back-story: NECROMEN is what one would call a 'late bloomer'. During one of Joker's attacks on Gotham's Special Crimes Unit central command, one of his stooges accidentally broke one of the canisters used to store exobytes containing data on the major villains of Gotham. The damage was quickly patched up, but a single exobyte escaped before that happened. It immediately sought out a host to endow with its powers. Eventually, it came upon a pedestrian browsing the area along a leisurely stroll. The exobyte entered the pedestrian who, the morning after, discovered what the exobyte had done. It gave her glowing green eyes, plant-based skin matching that of Poison Ivy, cryogenic powers like Killer Frost, and some basic hand-blast capabilities to match. Not long after, this pedestrian took up the hero mantle NECROMEN hoping to learn under heroes and aid them whenever possible. She still has a LONG way to go before being on-par with the rest who share her 'origin', if you know what I mean.
