Hiya, rpryor03, welcome to PC! n__n
It's great to see more writers here, PC could use some more! Like Miss Doronjo said, why not check out the Fan Fiction & Writing section? It's a great place to share your work and get feedback.
As for your ROM hacking interest, we do have a very large Emulation section just for that! You'll find tons of amazing hacks to play there; our members are very talented here. :3 Dig around the tutorials, resources, and toolbox there - I'm sure you'll find things to help you out! Just make sure you read the rules over there first, of course.
Anyway, enjoy your stay and I'll see you around, yes? Feel free to message me if you have any questions! :D
