Hi, my name's Joe, aka NegativeHollow1. I'm writing a fantasy novel called Kuro the Black Knight. In a nutshell, it's about a guy who kills his cousin's abusive boyfriend, attracting the attention of a vigilante group. He joins them in order to become a hero like his favourite anime characters, and learns about the nature of heroism while helping the group, known as the Killer Assassins Association, combat a narcotics ring, a rival vigilante group/rock band, and more. I hope to get it published once it's finished, so check it out and let me know what you think if that sounds good. If people like my content, I'll keep posting more chapters of it. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Joe! Welcome to the forum. I see that you already have a story that you're working on, and that's awesome! I can't wait to see how it turns out.

So you're into fantasy eh? Have you read The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson? It's really long and really good.

*foams at the mouth* Yes such good much love.


Oh, and welcome to the forum. It's cool to see you've got your ambitions and a story underway. Tell us a little bit more about yourself, too. Favorite books, authors, bands, dairy products, methods of assassination, etc.

Tbh, I mostly read graphic novels and manga so I don't particularly have a favourite author, other than myself. I don't mean because I'm trying to say I'm better than anyone else or anything like that, it's just that I write stuff that I really like. And as for the chat-up line, I'm not picky.
