So, ya really want to know about me! Hoo momma, now I'm scared. someone actually wants to know. Well, where to start. There's not much to say really but I'll try to make it interesting. Here's just a few FAQs about me in both online and real life along with my takes on a few things.

Background: Born well over 3 million years ago to his parents as a Star dragon in the Eternal Realm, a dimension apart from this one, he spent his first millenia growing up much as most kids do. His parents taught him many things over time and at the age of ascension, entered the academy to become a Celestial Guardian as his kind exsist to be, the governors and protectors of this universe. Over time he grew quite proficient in their ways of hidden intervention, protecting the weak, upholding the laws of the universe, and most so at the ultimate form of hand to hand combat, Warpfighting. Eventually becoming a warpfighting instructor at the academy after becoming a Guardian, one of the top three of his race, the only one outranking him being the grand master.
Finally receiving his assignment, he was put in charge over one of the largest sectors of the universe, having several thousand worlds to watch over and protect. Arriving in his sector he took stock of the worlds available to him there and chose this one to settle down on, to make his home in this realm. Over time he became a well-known Guardian among his kind as well as to most races whom he watched over and guided. Known to many races under a myriad of faces and names, Raiden and Shiva to some, he steered the course of their evolutions, guiding them secretly towards the same pinnacle that his own race had arrived at and in time perhaps they would too rise to the thrones of the universe and govern with his own kind.
In time he had mates, but none held his intrests for long or to his sadness abandoned him. However at long last, one day he met a wonderful Drakken and the two of them over time fell deeply in love with one another. Enough so that he has since all but forsaken his Star form in favor of his current form to be with his mate forever. He currently lives with his mate on this world and loves him more than anything and would do anything including give up his full powers and immortality for the love of his life.
Name: Scott Hubbard

Occupation: currently between jobs
Hobbies: Writing, composing, performing and listening to music, stormchasing, studying the super and paranatural, attempting to draw, having fun with friends, fursuiting, loving his mate, yutzing around with comps like a good computer geek, running my backroom production company, and going to furry cons.
Background: You really want to know this stuff about me? Yeesh. Perv. :} Well, I'm currently 31 and living somewhere around St. Louis, Missouri. That's as specific as I'll get on here with that. As I said above, I am a hobbyist stormchaser. Yes, I'm one of those loons that hauls tail after violent storms with cameras rolling. What can I say? I've always been into studying the weather. I've only been into being a furry/scalie longer. The weather has interested me since about the 1st/2nd grade years. Most of my teachers from them would tell you that I wore the library books on weather out, especially those on storms and tornadoes. My truck is fairly decked out for the job too. At the bottom of the page here is a couple pics of it and yes, I do drive that everyday too..
I write a lot, some of my stories and such will most likely make it onto this site, and do the odd project for friends but I take a while to do it, it's not something that I can just sit down and do anytime, I've gotta get myself in the writing mood first. Music usually helps me a lot with that. Those that know me know I'm a music addict. 700+ CDs will attest to that too. I'm bad enough that I'll spend an obscene amount on audio gear and media. I even do sound and lighting for live stage shows as a hobby as I and a few friends have pooled our gear and we run our own little production company out of the backroom though I'm waiting and wanting to get my own place so I can be with my mate properly as well as bring my pro gear home and set up a decent home studio. Currently though, I'm trying to track myself down a decent job and will soon with luck. Gotta have the cash so I and my mate can finally be together.
I am also a fursuiter, though I'm still somewhat new at it, only having been at it for a couple years now. I have built one fursuit, a collie, and when I get the cash I do plan on having a full suit commissioned of myself (Xylen) as well as plan on building a third of my ringtail (cacomistle) character. Right now I rather suck at building one but I'm slowly learning and making improvements to my current suit.
Spirituality-wise, I am not a christian. I left the church years ago as I found it to be rather hypocritical and generally not for me. I know I am a dragon in spirit and my mate is helping me learn more about who I am within my vessel and who I once was. I am gay, technically bi but so male-biased (95/5%) that I call it as gay and I'm quite comfortable as such. This was another problem I had with the church as they try to make you stay straight when I'm not. That's a fact I denied for years and tried to be straight but ended up just depressed and alone. When I finally accepted this fact along with my newfound spirituality, my life turned around big time. I am finally at peace with myself and have accepted who and what I am.
For those that would want to know about the computer-geek side of me, you can find my system specs and such in my studio where my comp lives.
