Distant Tide, commonly referred to as Tide, is an active member and Site Patroller of the Halo Fanon community who joined in May 2017. Following his first year of college, Distant Tide jumped on Halo Fanon after a two-year hiatus from writing Halo fanfiction. His first site article was the Colt Blaster HDW Mk.15, a twenty-sixth century interpretation of the American AR-15 rifle that drew moderate site attention and received several qualitative awards.
Before coming to Halo Fanon, Tide was a frequent writer on Fanfiction.net, starting 2010, and participated as a moderator on several related writing forums and roleplay servers. Regarded as a semi-competent writer in the fandoms he wrote for, much of his writing style was honed through Fanfiction.net, and through life experiences and media consumption from a young age. Distant Tide pulls much of his writing style and ideas from his family's military background, historical and political nonfiction, popular literary fiction, anime, and other fanfiction.
On Halo Fanon, Distant Tide's main focus is on Merlin-D032 and Andra-D054 of SPARTAN-III Delta Company and their literary adventures. His on-and-off nickname Welcome Wagon refers to his frequency on Halo Fanon and hijinks involving other Halo communities and new Halo Fanon users. Outside his writing, Tide is also a frequent traveler and enjoys swimming, video games, and writing as hobbies.
"The manga of The Ghost in the Shell didn't place importance on its sustainability as a series because it is faithful to the idea that works in different media, be it film, TV series, manga or novel, should be optimized to its own art form."
― Shirow Masmune (1961- )
(Author of The Ghost in the Shell Franchise. Quoted March 21, 2009, Postscript of English Reprint for The Ghost in the Shell, Volume One manga.)
"The difference between reality and fiction? Fiction has to make sense."
― Tom Clancy (1947-2013)
(American Author. Attributed to an interview on Larry King Live. Quote derived from another by Lord Bryon: "Truth is always strange; stranger than fiction.")
