What's up everybody. I'm Anthony AKA RocketJock. Obviously I'm new to the website so I just wanted to extend an overall greeting to the community. I'm in the United States Air Force (that's right - A Flyboy).

I'm currently working on a few projects in my spare time but my pride and joy is "As the World Stops". If you happen to pass by it on a stroll through the forums let me know what you think. For now that's all I have to say. Any questions: ask. Any comments: say them. Any meaningless conversation topics: well, I'm all ears.

Hey, now, here we go. Don't-cha wanna come back for more?- WAIT that's a song. *laughs*

Ah, Texas- never been there other than in an airport for about an hour. Anywho, I'm Will and welcome to the site. It's nice to meet you. Follow the rules and all that jazz, and you'll be fine. Just remember to also critique other people's work before posting your own. As for the rest, if you need anything you can always PM/VM me or one of the others on here. Now for interrogation:

*switches on interrogation light*
Favorite book title?
Favorite author?
Favorite genre?
Favorite color, perhaps?

Anyway, nice meeting you, and I'll see you around.

What is your opinion on the color cerulean?

Ooh scary interrogation light . . . hmm let me think . . . the pressure is unbearable.

Favorite book title: Way of the Wolf by E. E. Knight

Favorite Author: Alexandre Dumas

Favorite Genre: Apocalyptic (if that counts). If not then sci fi.

Favorite: Blue (Air Force all the way)

Hmm first random conversation topic of the night. Cerulian. Well it's definitely a very interesting color. Usually makes me think of a clear sky on a summer day. The name however makes it seem like it should be a lot more exotic than it actually is. The word cerulian makes me think of aliens or something peculiar but the color is actually quite ordinary, just a light blue with a hint of added flavor.

Thanks for the welcoming. Any other takers?

Yes, fear the interrogation light... Haha.

Apocalyptic? Interesting; that kind of makes me think of a little something like The Sentinel by Jeffrey Konvitz.

Cerulian makes me think of corn for some reason... O.o I have no idea why, though.
