Hello, my name is Mark Moore. I just joined this forum, so I thought I'd introduce myself (makes sense, right? ). I was born in Chicago, Illinois, on October 18, 1978. My parents and I moved down to this unincorporated town called Homosassa in Citrus County, Florida, in June of 1986, when I was 7, so I pretty much grew up in Redneck Capital, USA. I have been writing fanfics as long as I can remember, even way before the World Wide Web. I started writing a "Ghostbusters III" script in 1989 or a bit later (I lived and breathed Ghostbusters back then), then I moved on to Captain N fanfics. When I first got on the Internet in September of 1996, it wasn't long before I was writing a fanfic continuation of "Captain N: The Game Master" (I lived and breathed Captain N back then). I'm probably mostly known for starting the Captain N Internet fandom (such as it is) when I launched The Unofficial Captain N Home Page on February 27, 1997. I'm technically a published author. I took a Creative Writing course back in the mid- or late-1990s at Central Florida Community College. I wrote a poem based on Captain N, and it was published in the school's literary magazine. My Captain N fanfic writing stretched into late 2000, and I wrote one last fic in 2002 before giving it up. From January of 2002 until August of 2007, I wrote a Supergirl fanfic series, and I officially gave that up last year. My Captain N and Supergirl fanfics are best left in the past, because, well, they mostly suck. I got a FanFiction.Net account in June of 2001 and immediately started posting there, but all of the stories and reviews on my account were deleted in August of 2001 (whether this was due to me changing the e-mail address associated with my account or to other accounts of mine being hacked at that time, I have never found out), so I had to re-upload all of my fics. In addition to posting new fics there, I posted most of my old Captain N and Supergirl fics as well as some other fics that I'd written prior to 2001. I'd like to share some of my fics here, but, unfortunately, what I consider to be my best fics push the envelope in terms of cursing and sensuality, so I'm not sure what would be appropriate. Perhaps I could PM the links to a moderator to give the okay or not? I draw inspiration from all sorts of things, especially anime (my current live/breathe thingy) and video games. I even draw inspiration from crap, thinking "I can do better than / poke fun at this". I've had ideas for some ongoing series of original short stories for a while now. On Saturday, October 8, I attended CGA Show (a floating Florida convention), where I met published author Aya Knight (of "The Chronicles of Kale: A Dragon's Awakening"). I'd never heard of her or her book before, but I attended her presentation (I was her only audience member at first), and I was re-invigorated to pursue original writing and getting it published. So, anyway, yeah, that's me. Hi!
