From Fan History Wiki
ArkNorth is a fan fiction writer who joined FanFiction.net in 2000.
The name 'Ark North' was created in 1985 by Robert Stott and the late Barbara Doms for their script development project for the G1 Transformers series (the 'Ark' being a reference to the ship the Autobots arrived on Earth in the original series). ArkNorth is currently used by the author Robert Stott as an online pseudonym and coverage name for any works published by him or associates working with him on projects.
Mr. Stott is a cartoonist, illustrator and writer living in Bucks County, PA, USA. He is the principal author of two un-produced scripts for the G1 series of The Transformers, The Secret of Ultra Magnus and Magna II, and is the lone author of two further scripts for the Beast Wars Transformers series, Fight of the Bumblebee and A Lack of Existence, which were also not produced.
Mr. Stott spent twenty five years with his father running an advertising agency, working as the art director, photographer, animator and some times as copywriter. It was during this time that he began in earnest writing stories and creating his writing style, which tends to be technological in basis. His style in fan fiction tends towards the novel-sized storylines, which will at times interject ideas and micro-plots from other series as minor nods towards them, to major crossover plot twists.
ArkNorth was the founding requestee to FanFiction.net for the formation of the Haibane-Renmei category.
He is the fiancé of fellow Fan Fiction author Lady Shadowcat.
