Fanfiction... Oh God.

So, I just have to say...
Fanfiction gets a pretty bad wrap, I know.
But as a writer (no, I'm not twelve and writing about unrealistic hookups that happen magically after someone meets...), I just have to say that I love it.
I'm able to creatively use Fanfiction as an outlet. In the real world, you can't publish your own spin-off of a movie or of someone's book.
On Fanfiction, the possibilities are endless.
So far I've only written two separate Fanifction stories revolving around the Rachel McAdams / Cillian Murphy movie called Red Eye, but it's been amazing. I've been working on my own novels, but it's great to have some constructive feedback from some of the readers (and by some, I mean, those who take the time to actually appreciate the story for what it is, not, "Why aren't the kissing yet?"). My first story has actually broken off into a trilogy. In my mind, that's a major success. They are the lengths of small novels and to me that equals some serious pride. Plus, they have gained an enormous following. In the real world, I would have probably gotten sued.
I can write and nobody will know who I am. I am anonymous. If I write the most ignorant thing anybody has ever seen, no one will know it was me testing out something new. I can experiment.
I know that a lot of Fanfiction is written by those twelve-year-olds wishing that they were characters in the movies / books (and often insert themselves in via "Original Characters"), but there are actually a large group of very talented writers submitting works for Fanfiction.
I'm proud (and maybe tooting my own horn, here) to say that I am one of them.
I just love being able to do something amazing with the little side-thoughts I have while watching a movie.
Not many people care. But I do. and I love it.
Just saying.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
