Hello there. Welcome to my world of Random Thoughts. In this world I’ll be posting stuff about anime and manga. Not to mention various other topics. I may post the occasional music video every now and than. And from time to time, I’ll just talk about my life in general. But first, here are a few things about me.

I was born an only child, for one thing. Originally I was planning to go into art professionally, but recently I’ve been more inclined towards writing. I still do the occasional wallpaper every now and then though, and I also still draw a little. But much of my energy these days goes into writing fan fiction. I’ve also recently become interested in archive and library work, which is something I’ve discovered I’m good at. Finally, like most people on the Internet, I like cats.

In addition to being a fairly good wallpaper artist, I'm also a fan fiction writer who's written quite a few stories on FanFiction.Net. To check those stories out, CLICK HERE

That’s pretty much all you need to know about me. I'm not sure how often I'll post something here, but I'll try to as often as I can. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy visiting.

Different Kind of Styx

I've had this Styx song going through my head a few times this week. It's a bit different from other stuff they've done. See what you think.

As for me, I'm not sure if I like or hate this song. It's not my favorite song by Styx, that's for sure.

IMPORTANT! Please Read!

This post goes out to everyone here on TheO. I have an urgent matter to tell all of you. Fan Fiction.Net has been deleting various stories on their site. Specifically stories that are based on songs, and stories that aren't exactly PG-13. Now a lot of this is about censorship, and I can understand that. But there are better ways to prevent kids from reading stories that aren't suitable for them, like age registration and other security methods. The reason I started writing stories on Fan Fiction.Net was because the site gave me a little more freedom with what I write. But now that freedom has been threatened. So now I need all of you to do me a big favor and sign the petition at the link below.

Now I don't care if you're a writer of fan fiction or not. Heck, I don't care if you're a reader of fan fiction. Just sign, please. You'd be doing a service to me and other fan fiction writers out there. Thank you for your time.

EDIT: I should've mentioned this when I posted yesterday, but it would be a real big help if after you signed you tell all your friends about this and post about this in your worlds. Again, thank you.

Desert Moon

Here's another song by Dennis DeYoung that I found. Now that I think about it, I do recall hearing that he had a fairly good solo career.

New Discovery

I found an old song I'd like to share with you all. It was done by the original lead singer of Styx, Dennis DeYoung.

It was part of the soundtrack for Karate Kid II, though I don't recall ever hearing that song in the movie.

Coming Soon

Sometime in the next few days (hopefully before next weekend) I will be making a wallpaper set to this song.

It's going to be Yu-Gi-Oh! GX wallpaper, so stay tuned.
