This journal has been a long time in the waiting but i think it is time to address what you can expect from me in the next couple of months. As many know, i am done with the Halo Machinima "FPS" so those few who are still holding out for a comeback, forget it. Sorry to put it simply, I am done with Halo. I'll take the first three and the two spin offs (ODST and Reach) and leave it at that. Halo 4 and 5 can go have an irrelevance party with Guitar Hero and Rockband for all i care. However, not to say i am completely done. I still have obligations to keep in terms of two people who want me to finish my writings for them in the Halo universe. For those two i can say for :iconmang0l0v3r: I'm trying experimenting with a different direction more befitting to the pair's Headhunter status. For :icontaryn93: I'm still working on the basics trying to formulate a cohesive story based upon what you gave me. Also, I have something I've been kinda wanting to do ever since which was writing a Legend of Korra spin-off/prequel for my own amusement. For those sharpening their pitchforks at the very thought of this, don't worry it takes place 16 years before Korra's arrival in Republic City so no Korra or Aang, you're welcome. An intro will be posted on what, or more specifically who, went wrong with the series (Viacom). Once these three tasks are done, I am going to move on from established universes and focusing on my own.

What to expect that point on:
My stuff. Stories i concocted from years of laying on my bed looking at the tacky popcorn ceiling or during class when i should've been taking notes. It's been fun working with a backdrop already made but i outgrew that and want to go back to making my own universes. These will take longer, believe it or not, as the formula for my writing has been a three step process:
1) Write rough draft by hand. Leaving out minor details, just to get ideas on paper.
2) Transferring that onto a computer while roughing out the edges and adding the detail.
3) Post it and hope people don't hate it.
But with creating my own universes, considering my propensity for trying my best to make airtight plots, I have diagrams and charts on details people don't even think about stuff like "pre-story timeline", "hierarchy of the HA", "hierarchy of the average 'Family'", "L-7 Standard Issue weaponry", character bios (I'm just naming some i have in front of me and i don't expect you to have any idea what it means) and updating them. And like Sam Raimi's
1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88, the problem is starting it up. 90% of the time the biggest problem I have is finding the place in the story to start. But once I do, it's usually smooth sailing...as long i am not starting on a computer.

Well that's all (if you even got this far).  Good luck to all, and pray to the Nine Divines to make it stop snowing!

The ORIGINAL Halo Machinima DA comic
Bringing you hilarity at the expense of others since 2007
(Claiming the rights if people start copying me)

A friend of mine (Alex) and I (Nick) started a webcomic called FPS on a different website, but have now (officially January 23rd 2010) since moved to here! I'm not sure where Alex is, but when he resurfaces, I'm take over the industry...for now.

Nick/idontknow164's bio - main writer and creator of FPS)

My Ten Favorite Hobbies:
1) Fiction Writing
2) Gaming
3)Watching and Making Movies
3.5) Watching the same movies with creator's commentary
4)Sleeping
5)Not paying attention (oh cool a penguin :penguin:!)
6)Killing zombies
7)Laughing at the expense of others
8)Making stuff up
9)Posters (not THOSE posters. Pervert.)
10)Shouting "SHARK!" when the beach gets too crowded.
11)Sucking at math

Favorite quotes (i have a lot and the list always grows):

"All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand."
-George Orwell

"I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper."-Steve Martin

"Every human being has hundreds of separate people living under his skin. The talent of a writer is his ability to give them their separate names, identities, personalities and have them relate to other characters living with him."-Mel Brooks

"It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense."-Mark Twain

"The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” -Apple

"You know what your problem is, it's that you haven't seen enough movies - all of life's riddles are answered in the movies."-Steve Martin

"Above all, always be capable of feeling deeply any injustice committed against anyone, anywhere in the world. This is the most beautiful quality in a revolutionary."- Che Guevara

"These happy endings are just too damn happy."-Me

"All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure."-Mark Twain

"Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company."- Mark Twain

"I have never taken any exercise except sleeping and resting."- Mark Twain

"Most of the kids who come to my shows seem like really imaginative kids with a lot of creative energy they don't know what to do with...[metal is] outsider music for outsiders. Nobody wants to be the weird kid; you just somehow end up being the weird kid. It's kind of like that, but with metal you have all the weird kids in one place." - Rob Zombie

"Honesty is the best policy - when there is money in it."- Mark Twain

"Housework can't kill you, but why take a chance?"-Phyllis Diller

"Tragedy is when i cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into a open manhole and die."-Mel Brooks

"I use a map to see where explorers have already been. Then i go in the opposite direction"-Unknown

"I would weep, but my tears have been stolen; I would shout, but my voice has been taken. Thus, I write." -Unknown

"I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information."-Calvin, Calvin and Hobbes

"Why isn't my life like a situation comedy? Why don't I have a bunch of friends with nothing better to do but drop by and instigate wacky adventures? Why aren't my conversations peppered with spontaneous witticisms? Why don't my friends demonstrate heartfelt concern for my well being when I have problems? ...I gotta get my life some writers."- Calvin, Calvin and Hobbes

Lamenting the 20 dollars i will spend to repair my NES. I'm seriously losing sleep over it.
Nothing ruins a good book like the inevitable essay you'll have to write about it. Essays kill books. You can quote me on that. And no, you don't have to use MLA format if you choose to do so.
