Hello there! I'm James, your average (if not esoteric) college sophomore. I've been writing for nearly six years, and I've been 'freeform' roleplaying much longer than that. I worked on numerous short stories for friends over the years, and I hope to bring some of them to light here on Gaia.
The project I am currently working on is known as 'Journal of the Orator', a fiction series that delves into countless continuities. This writing project walks between the realm of fan fiction and original fiction, using elements of my favorite universes to construct an overarching plot that involves characters both old and new - familiar and unfamiliar. I'm hoping this fresh 'mash-up' of ideas will inspire others to write, and perhaps encourage roleplay within this continuity of diversity. While Wraith of the Oneiroi, a spin-off of JotO, can be found in my Gaia journal, you'll have to visit my fanfiction.net page
for my other Journal of the Orator works.
I would like to point out that my stories might only be appreciated by those who enjoy stories similar to Inception, Butterfly Effect, Lost, or Assassin's Creed. Wraith of the Oneiroi will be highly philosophical, but much of it will also be character-driven and easier to follow.
My preferred genres are as follows: Military fiction, Spy fiction, Adventure, Comedy of manners, Satire, Vigilante fiction, Dark fantasy, Heroic fantasy, Epic war fiction, Science fantasy, Alternate history, Occult fiction, Thriller mystery, Paranoid fiction, Philosophical fiction, Dystopian fiction, Hard science fiction, Soft science fiction, Cyberpunk, Slipstream, Thriller. Expect my stories to take on at least one of these genres.
I may make note of the genre on the title of each subsequent entry if necessary. Some of my ideas will be posted piecemeal on Gaia Journals, with backups posted elsewhere.
As for me personally: just send me a PM and I'll be happy to talk. I also won't turn down an offer for online roleplay (in one of the aforementioned genres), if nothing else!
