Zaphod Beeblebrox

Greetings, yo.

I'll keep things short and sweet as far as a profile page is concerned, because I know that barely anyone actually reads these things.

I'm a fanfic writer by any other name, though I've gone by other aliases over the years such as 'Xyris', 'Lothar Goldfist', and 'Zaphod_81'. I'm currently 22, and will soon have graduated from university with a B.A. in German Studies (other degrees to follow). I've spent the past little while trying to get something original published, although I still make the odd appearance here and there, reading and reviewing whatever fanfiction catches my attention. Anyone who needs any help with their fanfiction are more than welcome to drop me a line. I'll do what I can to help out. Read & review 'this' stuff if you're so inclined. Not that big a deal; can't twist your arm or anything. ^^

And yes, as you've probably already gathered from my current pen-name, I'm a huge fan of the late Douglas Noel Adams. What a genius!

Taker easy, yo.

Chrono Trigger / Final Fantasy VI Fanfiction
The Gathering- First conceived by Sir Timotheus Magus with Chrono Trigger vs. Final Fantasy 3 : Two Worlds, Same Evil, I added with his concept the idea of wasting a few precious lives as the story opens, which I learned from Mark Yohalem. It's a tad lengthy, but try to bear with me. I'm trying my best to break it down. I still think you'll enjoy it, what with the reflective little flavor quotes at the end of each chapter. Anyway, I present to you the Introduction to 'The Gathering.' Enjoy!

What It's Like- This title might sound a tad unoriginal, but those of you who are fans of Everlast will recognize the name of Whitey Ford's brutally honest, sad-gait melody aimed at those who have chosen The Road Not Taken. It deals with several RPG characters who have taken melancholy turns in life and how they are forced to deal with it. It's the shortest of my stories, but I have taken great trouble in writing this and am quite proud of it. I hope that in reading this, you will learn not to disdain reality but rather accept it with less regret. I know I have.
