Hello fellow intelligent beings on the planetary system called Earth! I’m a Christian Male TFOL and I do half day school. I believe in following the rules and doing what is right. I’ve reported many people for breaking some VERY serious rules. Don’t be one of those people. I’m fluent in English and Spanish, in my district we have a Spanish and English Dual Immersion system that I’ve been in ever since *counts on fingers* Kindergarten? I think so . . ? Anyways, knowing two languages has helped me a lot in my day to day life for the last couple years. I encourage you to learn another language, you never know when it could come in handy. One of the best websites to do it on is Duolingo, you should try it out. puedes hablar conmigo en cualquier de esos idiomas :wink:. I can also read Italian, French and Portugese. I’m a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know, it’s a lot. We believe in Jesus, The Godhead and the Bible just like any other Christian, but there are a lot of other things we believe in as well. If you have any questions about what other things I believe in, please PM (private message) me about it. Let’s see . . . I’m a HUGE. Star Wars fan, I’ve watched all the movies (7-9 were eh, shoulda stuck with the books), read all the books (both legend and canon, they’re AMAZING), watched all the tv shows (which unlike Marvel are insane) and read most of the comics. Also a LOTR and Middle Earth fan. The movies are really good, but the books (although long) are better. I suggest you try them out. I’m really excited for the Middle Earth show coming out on Amazon Prime soon, I hope they get it right. The MCU is also okay (I guess). My favorite characters are Spiderman and Doctor Strange. NWH was really good and I hope MoM is gonna be just as good. I’ve watched the trailer and think it’ll be good though. Harry Potter is really good as well, the Wizarding World is amazing, (I say that because Fantastic Beasts is better than the actual movies). That reminds me, The 3rd one is coming out in April!!! It’s gonna be insane. The books were really good, I don’t know how many times I’ve read them. Anyways, I’m a Gryffindor (according to Pottermore). I’ve always wanted to be a Ravenclaw though because everyone else in my family is. :/ But, when I took the test, it sent me to Ravenclaw instead. I LOVE reading, if every book I read gave me a penny, I would literally be the richest man on earth. No joke. I like LEGO, I mean we’re on a LEGO website. Also if you say Legos or Legoes, I will kill you. History is amazing, I’ve always been fascinated by what’s come before me. I code a lot but not in block coding like scratch or Tynker, I do REAL coding, Python, JavaScript and Java. I love acting, I think it would be cool to maybe be an actor. Idk. I LOVE Chess (in school I’m known as the Chessmaster, I haven’t lost a game of Chess for at least 5 years). Math is insane (I’m an addict) summer of 2021, I literally memorized almost 100 digits of pi and figured out 3 to the 15th power in my head, on my own and everything in between it and memorized it. I like to write, rn I’m writing 2 stories and 5 short stories. (Maybe I’ll write something later in here) And finally, spending time with my family. I like watching movies with them, skiing, playing board games and just talking to them. My life dreams/goals are to become an Author, Actor or Dentist. They’re kind of different things but I think it would be cool. Sometimes I play video games, not often, but when I do, these are my favorite, Minecraft Survival, Minecraft Bed Wars, Retro Bowl (which is a football game), Hill Climb 2 and Civilization V (which is probably why I like history so much). A couple of my favorite Authors are Brandon Sanderson, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K Rowling, Jennifer A. Nielsen, Charles Dickens, John Sears Barker, J. Scott Savage, Mark Twain and Christopher Paulini. I get to meet some of them soon at a Teen Author Writers Camp I’m going to soon. I’ve also started a new series called, “Famous and Amazing Authors” where I stare some of the best and most famous authors in the world. Wiz actually gave me the idea in his Famous Actors series. So shout out to him :wink:. Some of my favorite books and series are KOTLC, LOTR, SW, Inheritance, The Hobbit, Simarilion, Christmasana, Ascendance, Tale of Two Cities, Oliver Twist, Christmas Carol, Way of Kings, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians, Skyward, Reckoners, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and SOO many more. My favorite actors are Benedict Cumberbatch , Martin Freeman, Elijah Wood, Tom Holland, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Lloyd, Samuel L. Jackson, Emma Watson, Orlando Bloom and Chris Evans. My friends here on MB are Justy, Wiz, Lax, Veers, Cole, Slimmy, Customs, L_E_G_O, Zekar, Stat, Avem, LM, Seb, NachoCheese, SuperPup1, Sebachie, Randdan, LCB, Anonym, JCFRK, EvanPlays95, RedFlame37, BaB and CoolBrix10. My favorite movies are Star Wars, LOTR, Hobbit, Doctor Strange, Spiderman (Tom Holland) and Civil War. Favorite TV shows are BoBF, Rebels, Sherlock, Bad Batch, Clone Wars, Mandalorian, WandaVision and What If . . . My friends call me LM, Monsieur Pringles, Gouda_Cheese, Matthew and MatLocke. I write under the pen name Matthew Locke. I’m a big Cougar fan, A’s fan and 9er’s fan. My favorite singers are Strive To Be, Billy Joel, AJR, Ben Rector, Andy Grammar, OneRepublic and Imagine Dragons. My favorite activities are biking, everyday I go an a bike ride through town and try to go at least 8 miles. I go skiing, I’ve been doing it ever since I was like 2 or something. chess, math, reading, writing, acting, spending time with my family, playing board games, hanging out with my friends, Tora Jutsu (basically Karate), building LEGO, geeking out about Star Wars LOTR or MCU (PM me if you want to geek out about them), reading my scriptures, and hiking. I think we should elect Sauron For President to make Mordor great again *dabs, deploys banana wings, smashes through window and flies away* #Justy LOL. I have a business here on MB, link is down below. UMMM, check out my models, there are (probably I hope) some good ones.

Thank you SOOO much for making it Scrubs. 7. I’m really good at counting. 8. Don’t do flying laser sharks. Anyways, here’s the story, I’m writing it on the spot, so it probably won’t be very good, here we go! James approached the door slowly, sweat dripping down his face. He was almost there, he could taste it on his tongue. The final kill was right in front of him, he just needed to do it. Reaching out, he gripped the faded bronze colored handle, clammy hand turning it ever so slightly, hearing the click in the darkness. Upon entering, the sound of beeping hit him, it was slow but had a steady patter, *beep, beep, pause, beep, pause, repeat* he glanced around, trying to get his bearings, before continuing deeper in. A loud clang filled the air around him, light surrounding him. A young man, looking to be only a couple years older that James stood there, Blade in hand, lighting up the surrounding area. James drew his own, advancing quietly. “You don’t have to do this.” The boy said, a small quaver in his voice, “They’ve tricked you, we’re not evil, they are. We-“ Before he could finish, James lunged forward, ForgeSteel ringing in the night, casting a reddish glow, almost like blood, on the wall. The stood there for a second, each one evaluating the other, waiting for the time to be right to strike. James saw it first, in the blink of an eye, he lunged forward, blade flashing as it screamed forward, heading straight towards the boy’s shoulder. The boy blocked quickly, his own blade flashing as he struck. This continued for several minutes, their skills matched by the other. But the other boy began to tire, perspiration flooding down his face, drenching his cloak. His movements began to slow, small cuts were beginning to cover him as James would slip past his guard before he could parry. He began backing down the hallway, arm dropping lower and lower as he tired. He backed against the end of the corridor, terror covering his face as he fought desperately for survival, he was losing and he knew it. James hacked away mercilessly, slamming his sword against his opponent’s over and over again in an uncanny pattern. It wasn’t too long before the boy lowered his guard completely, he was defeated and he knew it. James regarded him for a moment, sneering in disgust before driving the blade in and out quickly. The boy gasped and toppled over, sword clattering away. “The rest of us, will still stand.” He groaned, blood spreading around him. James finished him off with a quick stab to the chest, watching, distain evident on his face. Reaching down, he examined the blade with interest, it was of a craft he had never seen. He slid it into his spare scabbard and walked away, leaving the boy to sit and rot. What do you guys think? Let me know through PM or one of my models. Y’all know that there are people out there who appreciate you! Before you go though, CoNnEcIiCuT BoIlEd TuRkEy. Have a good day. Ciao - Matthew W. Locke (God Save the Queen)
