Eyyyyyy, what's up? I'm TheDarkMantis16, but you can call me Dark or Mantis for short. I'm just a nerd who enjoys video games, music, and writing stuff!

All my characters and fanfiction are on SFW, which I'll link below. That's where I got my start, and I'll eventually post my stories over here! when I can stop being lazy that is

Don't be afraid to send me a message or note if you want to talk! I don't mind meeting new people. .3.

Stuff I like:
-Video games
-Transformers (Autobots, roll out!)
-Sonic (of course)
-Smash Bros
-Other game series (Dead Space, CoD, Mega Man, etc.)
-Good music (EDM, rock, metal, OSTs)
-Chicken (Fried, yummeh)
-Junk food
-Writing and reading

Stuff I don't like:
-Trolls (of the internet variety)
-Rap (mostly the ones about "bitches and hoes", pardon the language)
-People who vandalize stuff
-Disgusting food
-Losing all my hard work after forgetting to save (absolutely hate this)

Fun Facts!:
-I like cheese.
--And toast. I love toast~
---Hm, cheese on toast... grilled cheese! BRILLIANT.
-I first started writing fanfiction somewhere in 2012. Can't remember the exact date, but I remember the year. It was about my WoW characters Kioal Darkblade and Isaac Torquebarrel.
-I listen to music from other games while in a game (Example: Lost Colony during the first few rounds of Mob of the Dead in Black Ops 2)
-I'm a bit shy in real life (mostly because I can't find other people that like the same stuff I do).
-My first Sonic game was Sonic the Hedgehog 2, played it when I was like 3.
-I tend to mix concepts together to make new things regarding fan stuff (example: my Mortis Machina species borrows concepts from the Scraplets in Transformers and the Flood in Halo).
-I hate spiders.
-I can't swim.
-I can't draw for toffee. >_<
--I can do stuff in GIMP, though!
-Technical problems sometimes hinder me.
--Then again, they hinder everybody. Nyeh.
-I sometimes say very dumb things and regret doing so moments later.
-I want to be a writer when I go to college. =D
-I'm a huge Transformers nerd. =P
--I've even got a main character - Rotorhead, an Autobot medibot who morphs into a helicopter. He's generally nice and friendly, though weak, but he is very determined to see the war end.
-I take my username after a boss in Mega Man X8, Dark Mantis.
-I find I say "yo" a lot.
-I'm so stylish yo.
-I've lost my ability to even, help me
-I seem to have a proclivity to explode.
-I think I have more ships than I know what to do with. owo;;
--Many of them are with FracturedMirror on SFW, to be precise. And a whole lotta people around the rest of the interwebs!

You can find me in other places, such as...

Been a good day today! Got my hair cut, grabbed The Master Chief Collection at GameStop, and snagged Mirror's Edge and Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China via Games with Gold. :D
That moment when there's a sale on Steam for a franchise you're a mad fanboy of, and you lack the monies to buy it all. ;;

Hey there! Just wanted to know for one of your ten point sketches.
Does Aurelious-Auria consent to their OC being drawn with another?
