Arius Ex is a male orange fox from the Southern California region. He is a student at California State University Long Beach and an English major.
He spends much of his time absorbed in literature, as well as writing some of his own when inspired. As a poet, Arius is influenced heavily by the works of Charles Bukowski and e.e. cummings. As a writer, he is inspired by Chuck Palahniuk, Joseph Heller, and Will Christopher Baer.
Arius began seriously writing at the age of 14, creating Sonic the Hedgehog fanfiction. His interest in writing grew as he entered high school, studying famous works such as The Catcher In The Rye by JD Salinger and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. After being accepted to California State University Long Beach as an English major, he decided to pursue a career as a professional novelist and poet.
Currently Arius is concentrating on refining his writing style and developing his own unique literary voice. He has spent the last semester writing a series of short stories for the website Queer As Lylat, a fanfiction archive that centers around homosexual pairings of characters from the Star Fox series.
Arius has been quoted talking about fanfiction:
- "Most anthro writers tend to reject fanfiction as a legitimate medium for getting people interested in their writing. The way I see it, when someone declares one of their pieces 'fanfiction', they're automatically guaranteed to have some kind of a receptive audience because people are familiar with the characters involved. It's an excellent way to get yourself noticed and receive constructive feedback from fellow writers."
