J. A. Keane has spent the majority of his 19 years trying to act like a somewhat normal member of modern society, but seeing as nobody else seems to be acting normal these days (which basically makes the entire concept of “normality” redundant and nothing but a bad joke (my inner Comedian-from-Alan-Moore’s-“Watchmen” talking there)), he has decided to give up on that, and continue along his path of random offbeat-ness.
When he’s not doing that, he also likes to write long-winded rants on Tumblr, miniature rants on Twitter, medium sized rants on Facebook, and adamantly refuses to use LOLspeak (as he finds it annoying, and believes that it’s a slightly differentiated (but not THAT much, really, if you think about it) form of Newspeak).
And when he’s not doing any of that, he likes to write exaggerated biographies that are intended to make him sound more interesting than he actually is.
And after all that, he also really likes to end his website biographies on a joke.

Love to read, never written much. Thought I’d give it a try.
Please, rate me harshly! I know we all like to be nice here, but please don’t give me a 5 unless you think a story could not have been any better and it really blows you away.
Similarly, do leave criticisms, constructive or not. I appreciate tough love, even if it’s something that you aren’t sure I (or anyone else) would agree with – that’s the best way to see how other people are thinking and, I think, to improve.
I try to apply these thoughts to my own comments/ratings and probably come off as somewhat rougher than most, but I definitely will explain what I thought could improve if I give a 3, or what I thought was outstanding for a 5.

“If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.”
My name is Wednesday, and I guess you could say that for the most part that quote personifies me. If there were no silliness in this world I would die.
However, I guess it’s not all shits and giggles on my side of the pond. Because as much as I’d like, life is not just silliness.

‘Cheer’ suggested by ElshaHawk
Named ‘Jae’ by the marvelousness that is Mr.Gabriel
Rest is not idleness,
and to lie sometimes on the grass
under trees on a summer’s day,
listening to the murmur of the water,
or watching the clouds float across the sky
is by no means a waste of time.

Beauty is the way lines meet to form a picture, the way everything around me began somewhere in the world and it took so many people, more than we could ever dream of, to get everything in this exact position in space and time. Beauty is an idea becoming a reality, a white flag waving as fighting ceases. Beauty is a smile, whether on the face of someone who has been through more than their fair share of hardship or on the face of an innocent child opening his/her eyes for the first time. Beauty is love, and love is beautiful.

“Water,” the Dutchman said. “Well, and time.”

In short, the Electric Hillbilly is a free and untrammelled citizen of the great state of Alabama, who lives in the hills, has no means to speak of, dresses as he can, talks as he pleases, drinks whiskey when he can get it, and fires off his rifle as the fancy takes him.

I am a college student, firstly; a lover of both the conventional and the unorthodox. Dichotomies in fiction particularly fascinate me – with the concept of opposites attracting and whatnot.
Otherwise, art remains to be my secondary passion – I sketch, and paint with watercolors and acrylics mainly, and hope to collaborate with my current English professor in the creation of a children’s book; the illustrations therein would be my works. So yeah – I’ve got my fingers crossed for its completion and publication!

Currently at university, I like writing longer stories since I’m one of those people that enjoy adding detail but love the challenge of trying to write short stories! Really giving me a mental workout! Umm… I have arms, legs a head…all the bodily functions and am obviously terrible at writing about myself!

Greetings, programs of Ficly!
Somewhat paradoxically, I am simultaneously new – and not new – here; formerly, I was on this site under the handle of “J.A. Keane” from the start of 2010, up ‘til mid-to-late 2012. Things would have merrily continued that way…if it weren’t for the malfunction that wound up with me being unable to log back onto here with my Facebook account (oh, technology!), so henceforth I have returned like a fine-feathered phoenix from the flames (albiet with considerably less spectacle) to start anew.
However, if you’d like to see the sort of stuff I did before on my old account, you can take an inquisitive gander herein:
Be seeing you…
