Hello! Welcome to my profile page!

I'm new to this site, but I'm no stranger to forum communities. I spent nearly a decade on The Marriland Forums, where I was even privileged to serve as a staff member for a few years! I was known as Awesome_Typhlosion there for quite a while. The nickname A_T has stuck and I thought it would be fun to continue that trend here. You can call me that, or Typhlosion, or my real name, Ben: I'm not picky! (The current name is an allusion to cell biology, my university field of study!)

I'm also a relative newcomer to the challenge scene, though I have successfully completed a Yellow Nuzlocke, an X Wonderlocke, and a Platinum Wedlocke! All three of those runs are fully documented here on the forums as written logs. You can check my signature for links!
