About the Story

Two star crossed lovers in...ha, no, I'm just kidding you. Gunmetal Annie, so far, is the story of two high schoolers, Greg and Dana and their life on Earth after it has become a prison colony for a hostile race of shape-shifting aliens. The Beings and the Earthlings have a mutual agreement "Don't bother me and I won't bother you" so it's few and far between that the two races interact.

The time is twenty years after the First Contact and nineteen after the full colonialization of the planet, and in that span, life has gotten back to normal, for the most part. There's still school to go to, bullies to deal with, and problems to overcome.

Without giving away too much, Gunmetal Annie is Greg and Dana's story. It will follow them through good times and bad, to new people and old, and from childhood to adulthood.

About the Author

NAME: My name, for all intents and purposes, is Mercury Hat.

OCCUPATION: University student

BIRTHDAY: January 27, 1986

HOBBIES: I have been drawing and writing personal stories since about eighth grade and I think it's the best hobby a person can have.

FAMILY: My immediate family includes my mother and brother back in Virginia, and my dad lives in Atlanta. There's also his wife and my step-nephew, all four of my grandparents, two cousins on my mom's side and around thirteen or so cousins on my dad's side. After that it gets a little confusing. I have family (that I know of) in Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, New York, and Ohio.

  • Food is chicken alfredo...or maybe it's steak. Hawaiian pizza? I like a lot of foods.
  • Drink is Diet Coke either with vanilla, cherry, or lemon. Although peppermint tea, root beer, and mint hot chocolate are pretty much tied with it.
  • Junk food is Thin Mints, I just can't get enough of those Girl Scout Cookies. Keebler brand Grasshoppers are a nice alternative in the off-months. I also highly enjoy coffee ice cream, the Starbucks brand is just awesome.
  • Band would be the Barenaked Ladies.
  • Type of music is a hard one. I don't really listen to rap, but I like all kinds of music. Jazz, pop, blues, ska, hard rock, all of it's pretty good.
  • Cartoon is another hard one since I watch way too many. Samurai Jack is good, Jackie Chan Adventures, Family Guy, older episodes of the Simpsons, Futurama, Home Movies, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sealab 2021...it just goes on.
  • Anime is also a split category. Cowboy Bebop, Hellsing, a little of Dragonball, Lupin III, and Azumanga Daioh come to mind.
  • Manga/comics will be combined here. For manga I mostly just read the counterparts to the anime I listed above. Comics would be the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman, an excellent read and I highly recommend it.
  • Guilty pleasure would be that I am highly addicted to the manga "Peach Girl", a very shojou series that I just can't get enough of.
