My Bio

In the real-world, I'm a 37-year-old accountant from London (England). I'm the Group Scout Leader of my own Scout Group, which I really enjoy, seeing the children grow and learn new things. I love to read - generally a mix of modern SF and classic fairytales; I know those two things don't really seem to go well together, but that's me, a weird collection of things that probably shouldn't go together but kinda do anyway.

I have zero artistic skill. Seriously. You'd never want to see me draw, I can't even do a good stick-man. Because of this, I choose to turn to those with real artistic talents, and commission them to make lovely drawing and paintings of my ideas for me.

I like to play computer games, but I definitely don't keep up with modern computer games. Instead, I prefer to play older games from my own childhood, a mix of PC games such as Quake and Carmaggeddon, games for the SNES console, such as my favourites by Quintet - Actraiser, Soulblazer, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma, Robotrek (as well as an emulated version of The Granstream Saga for the PS1) - and others even older (like the games for my Amstrad emulator), or for modern PCs (the early installments of Quake, G-Police, The Sims, Black & White, Spore). In modern PC games, I tend to prefer first-person shooters like Doom/Quake/etc or Sim-style games like The Sims, SimCity, Black & White, or Spore.

What else? Oh yes, I dance. I had been taking regular ballroom dancing classes since I was 6 years old, and can dance moderately well. I used to attend amateur ballroom competitions every year, and was a very frequent medallist. I really want to take up dancing again, but between work, study, and Scouting, I haven't the time. When I finish my professional studies, I will though.

I don't usually post journals on this account - my primary account being As such, I was rather amazed to discover that it has been FOUR YEARS since I last put up a journal here! xD What am I doing these days? Well, you can see all the art that I've been commissioning in my cartoon (and light-hearted fanfics) account above, and for my Royal United Loldovan Forces at as well. While here on my account for semi-realistic art/photos/more serious fiction (maybe), there have been several larger digital painting commissions and a couple of stories. The most notable piece of writing I've done for many a year was "T.L.C (TARDIS Loving Care)" at about 9,200 words; and, although much shorter than it, I would also consider "Petite Maman - Tu seras toujours ma meilleure amie" to be serious piece too. But the biggest new is yet to come. I'm writing a new story now. One that is wholly original. And much longer. Codenamed...SEAT. Coming in 2023...stay tuned! ^^

Just got the incomplete test copy of my book back from the printers... there's a bunch of small issues need fixing in my layout (as well as the rest of the story, obvs), but @TychyTamara's art looks beautiful! :heart:

My favourite Who ship (no jokes about how the TARDIS should obviously be everyone's favourite Who "ship" xD): Five and Nyssa. So here they are - enjoy seeing Team Nerd getting smoochy courtesy of sophiecowdrey (https://www.deviantart.com/sophiecowdrey)! ^^

Happy Birthday!
Thank you! :D

(Although looking at how long ago this was posted, it was actually about 3:30 on the morning after, but it's the thought that counts :D)

In all fairness, you live 5 timezones ahead of me!
Have a very Happy Birthday! :)
Thank you! :)
