As you have probably guessed, since I joined a writing forum, I love to write. Although I haven't really written much [about five short stories, two poems, and a bunch of unfinished stuff/random ideas], I do love to write and I am working on writing more and more. Currently I'm trying to write a murder mystery [or possibly a serious of murder mysteries] which features a team of investigators who, that's right, you guessed it: solve cases. I won't say any more on that for now. Anyway, my real name is Andrew, and I am a fifteen year old sophomore in high school. "Velox" is a Latin word meaning "swift," and is also the alias I use on a BIONICLE fansite on which I am a staff member. On that note, yes I am a BIONICLE fan. I'm not really into the sets any more, but I do enjoy the storyline and the overall concept. In fact, most of my writing has been fanfiction for BIONICLE [with usually a more humanistic tone (so it'd be similar, to, say, X-Men)], but I've been writing human-based stories recently. Some of my favorite book series include Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot detective mysteries [there's about thirty-three of them, if I remember correctly; haven't yet read them all], Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series, J.R.R. Tolkien's the Lord of the Rings, and others. My favorite poet would have to be Edgar Allen Poe, especially with his The Raven. Not to mention his various short stories such as Cask of Amontillado, et cetera. My favorite TV series would definitely have to be NCIS, and my favorite movie would be The Dark Knight. The main reason I joined this site was because I want to get more active with writing, and the weekly contests as well as the reviewing forums you guys have here really interested me. I especially like how you make people review twice before posting something on their own, which definitely encourages reviews, which are greatly needed. I hope to write some reviews of my own soon, but I'm not sure when that'll be as school and other things have been quite busy for me. And as you've probably realized by now, I do tend to ramble on at times. Other than that, there's not much left to say, really. Looking forward to being more active here.
