Hello there everyone. I am Blade bane, but you can call me Bane or even Ethan if you want to. I am a 13 year old kid from Australia, and I love to write. Especially when it comes to horror, mystery, and fantasy stories. I love the works of Dan Brown and Matthew Riley. I mostly write in depth content such as multiple paged descriptions, but I also do short stories when motivated. Just by being and writing here, I hope to learn about hybrid genres, such as the unique one that this very site has. See you round, ~~~~Blade bane
…Dan Brown? You poor child. Go home and read some Terry Prachett and Christopher Moore. It should clear that right up.
13 is a little lot younger than what we usually like to have around here. You seem intelligent enough, so I'll let it slide. Hope the admins agree.
I would actually tend to agree with you there yoric. Dan Brown's works tend to annoy me, but I really liked the Da Vinci Code, and I absolutely loved Digital Fortress. One thing he tends to do is make all of his characters extremely talented and strong, bodybuilders or IQs of 230. Or both.
And yeah, I have talked to the admins and moderators before several times. Please do not think of me any lesser because of my age, ageism is discrimination even if you would not think it such. Look forward to being here and working with you irregardless however.
Coincidentally, is your name a reference to Shakespeare's Hamelet; "Alas poor Yorick, I knew him, Horatio."?
I wouldn't dream of discriminating against a user who seemed capable of handling themselves appropriately, regardless. Ageism is discrimination, and it's a sad battle to fight from either end.
and yes, my name is partially a reference to the verse in Hamlet. The play never specifies why the good jester was dead, nor why his body was exumed. It pleases me to imagine he was executed for a particularly biting joke.
