My real name is Ty, and I am 12. I live in Austin, Texas and have dark brown eyes and dark brown hair. I'm big for my age, but not disproportionally sized, so I appear about thirteen or fourteen. I am homeschooled, and a pretty good student with exeptions in the area of spelling. I am also very athletic, and I have taken karate/MMA for three years. My role models are my dad, God, and especially Rick Riordan. My favorite style of music is by far alternitive, espcially bands like Green Day, blink-182, and twenty one pilots. I have younger brothers. I haven't been writing because everytime I try to post, my nook glitches and shuts down, and everything I wrote is gone. I just got this fixed, and hopefully I will be able to write more. I encourage other writers to use punctuation and spelling, specifically in capatalizing I's. -Cyptor Fun fact: my mother's friend is married to Tom Duffiren, the lead singer for blink-182!

Kai517 is a girl who is 13 11/12 years old<p>Her birthday is May 17, giving her the 517 part of her name. She chose Kai because that is part of her real name, and Kai is her favorite ninjago ninja<p>Her goal is to Fanfic each book she has read, and each book about shows or movies she has watched. It may take a while, but it's for her fans<p>Everything she does is for her fans.
