Welcome to Side Of Fiction. The best side, really.

I write about the things I enjoy here. If you like anime, video games, storytelling, and the like, I hope you stick around. Basically, if you’re into nerd culture and overly sarcastic people, you’ll like your stay.

Even if you decide to leave right away, I want to say thank you. I really appreciate it anyway, and I hope you have a great life. If you decide to stay, thanks again. It means a lot.

First time here? Check out my favorites
