My self-summary
I write novels. With dragons. Not literally with them, mind you. Although that would be pretty epic.

I have a deep love of great stories and story telling. Whether in a book, a movie, or a video game, a great story will capture me like nothing else. I also love the lore and back story behind such things, as well as analyzing them and seeing the connections they all have to the real world. I think I might be a bard that was born a few centuries too late.

Anyway, I'm Dan, if you couldn't tell by my clever username and it's nice to meet you! Archery, animals, reading, video games, and of course writing are passions of mine that I hope to share with someone special. I really like sports as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I definitely want to be a lore writer for a company like Bethesda or Kerberos but we'll see. Other than that, college. And petting animals. Petting ALL the animals.
I’m really good at
I'm pro at petting animals. Easily my best skill.
Reading and writing, obviously.
And laughing way too much. Seriously though, I think it might be a problem, haha.
Listening to and supporting people.
I like to think I'm good at archery. I do score the bulls eye often enough, at least.
Becoming obsessed with something and reading everything there is to know about it.

And definitely gaming. In all modesty I am pretty talented. I once jumped straight into a minefield and caused all my friends to die.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't really know, I've never asked anyone. I'd assume the first things people notice are my size and friendliness. Tell me? :P

That I laugh way too much?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All three of the Lord of the Rings trilogy are definitely my favorite movies. Star Wars is great too.

I love science fiction and fantasy books but I really don't read that wide of a variety. I'd have to say Karen Traviss is my favorite author. I LOVE Robert Louis Stevenson as well, not to mention loads of others.

Music is pretty wide for me, I listen to a lot of metal but I have new age, classical, and rock too. But yeah, METAL!
The six things I could never do without
Nature in general
My friends
My computer (not going to lie)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I love to think about everything from history to philosophy. I spend a ton of time thinking about the books I write, naturally. And video games, obviously.

Basically what that means everything from werewolves to why Romans loved lead so much. (I think about both of those quite frequently)

If you really want to get deep let's talk philosophy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, hopefully. Usually archery, doing something with the dogs, or gaming with friends, though. Almost all my really good friends are at different colleges.

Occasionally I tame dragons but they are hard to find these days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time, at three in the morning, I squirted lemon concentrate in my mouth. It was horrible.
You should message me if
Are you a nerd/geek? Do you like stories? Do you love animals? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should definitely message me. If you're looking for something serious as well... then we should REALLY start talking, shouldn't we?

Totally cool with making new friends, though, so message me if you want to talk nerd things with me!

Like I said, I don't bite. I do occasionally make bad puns though, so be careful. I really am a nice person, I just can't help myself sometimes.
