Show me when you're done!G'day everyone, *waggles hand* howsigoin? I'm your host for the evening and if there's anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable don't hesitate to give a yell!



To be honest, I hate being Admin but I love fanfiction more. I wanted our community to have a place of its own rather than filter feeding through FFnets Halo section or Deviantart and the rest of the net. A place to make friends, share advice and encouragement and immerse ourselves in our favourite fandom universe! I fully believe the success of a fanfic community lies in the hands of the reviewers rather than the authors.


Contact Me: Feel free to contact me, if you have quip, query or suggestion or just want someone to talk to about your RvB fic! Seriously, that is a real and open invitation. All my friends are all labrats, ecologists and farmers so I'm thrilled to be apart of any conversation that doesn't involve vital organs or weather reports. Give a yell via PM,  email or the Roosterteeth Community Website!


About Me: I'm an Aussie, soon to be living abroad in Toronto, Canada, twenty twentyfive, and direct proof humans had rodent ancestors. Hobbies include reading, writing and camping. My penname isn't after RvB's Tucker but after a figment of childhood imagination, parodying Australian survivalist Les Hiddins aka the Bush Tucker Man.


I only have computer skills in negative amounts.


About My Projects: I have the attention span of a stunned mullet but Remnant is my vanity project, well planned and fantasised. *wistful sigh* I haven't written anything proper in a long time so everything feels as smooth as a gravel road. I love concrit, the more vicious and heartless the better. I also like to spend a lot of my time tutorials and reviews because I tend to see myself of the Those who can't, teach variety. It's something I thrive on and take pride in so give a bell if you'd like a review.


Art? I'm not an artist. In fact I'm one of those scumbag tracers *sheepish expression*, but it suits my purposes. The art you do see I have to pass on my compliments two amazing artist, CaptainFreidaTimber and Empty Gold Eyes, absolute stunners! If you're looking for amazng RvB commission artists, these are the blokes!


My RvB Expirence: As mentioned I have no attention span, but while it lasts it tends towards intense. What can I say, I'm a closet nerd from a country town so it needs direction. I knew about Red vs Blue before, having watched a couple of eps in highschool when Australian internet sucked (what do I mean when? Ten years later and it still sucks. Well done Telstra!), but I really got into it about halfway through Reconstruction's release in 2008.


My favourite season is Reconstruction, the writing was amazing. Burnie out did himself on every front. There are too many favourite quotes to count but Sargeism, Winter Lames and his H&S tips when picking up heavy objects. As you've guessed Sarge is my favourite character, followed closely by Lopez.


Fic Choices: When it comes to fanfiction I read action, adventure and humour and taking the gang on the road! Get them out of Blood Gulch and show them the world! I pounce on OC fics, especially if they're like the overflawed caricatures we know and love. Freelancer fics are a close third; Alpha Origins, The Twins, Wash & Epsilon. All these must have rich description, characterisation and complex plot!


Dislikes? Romance of all kind bores me, het, ff or mm and really not pwp. Even if it's Tex/Church shipping they have to be their antagonistic selves. In OC-Fics I hate Jake-the-Peg stories where an author just crams their character into a season, Gratuitous OC/Canon pairing with no plot other than nab, Anywhere but Here fics and Next Gen.


Recomendations: RvB Legal by InvaderSam and Red vs Blue: Spartan Rejects by nuh

Favourite Shipping: Church/Tex. I also like the idea of York/Carolina
