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, starting 2010, and participated as a moderator on several related writing forums and roleplay servers. Much of his writing style was honed 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. Distant Tide's current projects include a variety of short stories and novellas, including a few items outside the realm of Halo fanfiction.

  • Distant Tide made a shortlived attempt to join Halo Fanon circa. 2014 but not much is known about this period. Attempts to rediscover the old account and wiki entries remain unsuccessful.

Shirow Masmune (1961- )

(Japanese 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 military technothriller author. Attributed to an interview on Larry King Live. Quote derived from another by Lord Bryon: "Truth is always strange; stranger than fiction.")
