Was an extremely eccentric 16 year old from the good ol’ Philippines. I’m now 18, and I still like science fiction, ambigrams, and other stuff.

Dr. Tim’s Neurotic Rules of Ficly Life
[Disclaimer: This is not intended to be binding nor in any way an expectation of general members of Ficly, league members, family members or wearers of Member’s Only jackets]
1. Comment to Story posting ratio must exceed 5:1. Goal is 10:1. In other words, I write a story then find five others (at least) upon which to comment before writing another.
2. For every solo shot or sequel of my own material, I must write a sequel or prequel to the work of another author. If I’m going easy on myself, participating in a challenge also fulfills this requirement.
3. If someone comments on one of my stories, I go find one of theirs upon which to comment. It only seems fair, and I like to think it encourages commenting.
4. Awesomeness is the goal, always. Call me on it when I fail, please.
5. Clearly mark mature content and err on the side of caution.
6. Golden Rule remains in effect for all sequels, prequels, and comments.

I like short stories and that´s not a lie.
You other authors cant deny.
When a story walks in with a break neck pace,
and a plot hole in your face,
You get hung,
Wanna ad a chapter,
Cause you noticed that story needs to be buffed,
The deep plot at which you´re glaring,
I´m hooked and I can´t stop reading,
Oh story I wanna get with ya,
And ad a character,
My readers tried to warn me,
But that villain you got,
Make me so corny,

Hi, I’m Paul.
Winner of the 2009 All England Pro-Am Hikikomori Championship via Unanimous Disqualification for not getting out of bed and turning up. Currently studying for a Degree in Classics with a bit of Archaeology and Creative Writing thrown in for fun. Collector of bad films, reader of trashy vampire romance, writer of, so far, short stories and bad poetry.
Defeated the Spider-Queen of Mars in hand to hand combat for the Sceptre of D’Hash, but doesn’t like to talk about it.
Once loved a sparkly chested vampire so much the body glitter wore off.
Enjoying Ficly far more than is good for my assignment schedule.
Usually found hanging out round the northern end of Manchester, UK.

Me am writer.

I’m open to any critiques, no need to whitewash it. I want to improve my writing and enjoy the flow of creative juices even if they go splat.
I joined Ficly to challange myself and break out of the writing box I’ve constructed over years of just “thinking about it” instead of expressing it through written word.
I live in Minnesota and love everything oriental including sushi and goldfish but not at the same time.

A graphic designer by trade and study, I currently freelance for the big bucks. Also, I’m not even pretending that I know what goes on in the world of writing…I just like trying new things.

Hail, good sir, or madame (I musn’t forget the superior sex! ;-] ). My name is Spageti. Good to make your acquaintance. I was born leagues away in a quaint place Christianed as Hamptonshire. My pappy was a writer of ye olde English fiction and me mum a proud housekeeper, the bless’d angel she was… I found it my responsibility to continue my family’s tradition of writin’ stories and housekeepin’, so I drunkenly stumbled onto this bit one night on my way back from Bubbles. Ever since, I’ve been writin’ my stories and making capturing massive adoration from plebians! I’d like to personally thank all me dear friends on this ledger via missive.
From a hoary old man to his captives!

I am not much of a writer nor much of a painter, musician, or singer. I do all of them anyway and in small amounts to amuse myself and maintain some semblance of sanity. What I lack in grammar skills or style, I make up for in mediocrity and incoherent ramblings. I desperately seek the approval of strangers and do not give a damn what anyone thinks about it, as long as it doesn’t force me to reevaluate my unyielding and ever-changing principles. I hope to learn a few things from every experience, and I accept harsh criticism easily through my internet connection. Praise is often accepted as well, but we’d all rather have cash I’m sure.

Ok, I’m back. One heart attack, a triple CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft, pronounced cabbage) and two sessions of beating my computer into submission. I am back.
I’m old. Real old. I’m so old I remember when dialing a phone number actually involved using a dial.
I’ve worked as a projectionist, an armored car driver, a help desk tech, a museum tech and laserist, an historical interperter at Old Sturbridge Village, a university assistant at a planetarium and observatory. I’ve been a salesman, a techie, A union VP and a storyteller. I remember the Gemini missions, but was born after sputnik. I have a love of History, Technology, Space, my religion (Christianity) and my country. I believe there is more that binds us together than can tear us apart.
I’ve loved many, married one, was involuntarily divorced.
Oh and I suppose I should tell you. I don’t understand your music and when it comes to sports, I don’t care if the Red Sox beat the 49’ers for the Stanley cup or not. Not judging, it’s just me.

I am a physicist, atheist, collaborative writer, poet, graphic artist, web designer, and Delt.
I’ve written quite a few stories that are ripe for reading, sequeling, prequeling, and commenting, if you’re so inclined.
My favorite ficly thread – or ficly tree, if you will – is one I wrote about Verdanus and Tertius. Please take a gander, and feel free to build off of it! There is no way to ruin the story, if that is something you fear, so your sequels and prequels will always be appreciated!

As a self-proclaimed Knight of Ficly:
I, Sir Bic, do solemnly swear -
To befriend those who befriend me
To follow those who critique me
To make my giving (my stories) but a tenth part of my gifts (my comments)
“Long live the land of Ficly!” – o)
I strive for a 10:1, comment-to-story ratio, cause the math is easier.
I hope to have as many Ficleteer friends as I have Ficlet stories.
“Give me Ficly or give me death!” – o)

At the beginning when mush squished in my nose and I felt the world through my mother’s skin, I grabbed words by the umbilical cord. Now cut, dry, and old, I pull on any cord I can find that ends with a word of purpose in this unfathomably perturbing world.

Great stories happen to those who can tell them. -Ira Glass, although he attributed it to Anonymous.
If you comment my stuff, please be as nit-picky as necessary. I crave constructive criticism. Also alliteration.

“Difference is a blessing, not a challenge. We define ourselves by knowing other people. We know our world by learning about difference. What is the word we often use? Tolerance. Is that a positive notion? Not really. ‘For the time being, I will tolerate you?’ I’m against that concept. It means difference is a threat. Difference is a blessing and you don’t tolerate a blessing. You embrace it.” — Mohammad Mahallati.

“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 Captain of the High Seas in the League of Awesomeness.
‘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.
