Hi there! My name is Benjamin O'Rourke, a student based in the UK. I am a writer, and my site, East Side Port, is a veritable portfolio of my writing career over the last few years. I am currently writing two long form web serials, Cause and Sunderland College. Cause features six psychic children who are dragged into a cosmic conflict that threatens their entire universe, whilst Sunderland College details the adventures of an up-and-coming group of college students in a world where clothing gives you incredible powers.

Writing both of these has given me a lot of joy. Sunderland College has been especially fun, as it has been reader-driven; my twelve friends created characters, much like DnD, and with each new part that comes out, they send commands detailing what their characters will do in the next part. I write my story based on these commands, and it's been a unique writing challenge, which is why I want to share it with more people!

Currently, Cause and Sunderland College release every Tuesday - one week is Cause, and the next is Sunderland College. However, this is because there are many demands on my time, and I would much prefer to be able to update both every week. I'd also love to be able to expand the amount of things that I'm writing, and engage with new and unique ideas, given the time. Your support would allow me to devote far more of my energies towards East Side Port, and release far more content than I currently am. If you're a fan of Cause or Sunderland College, please consider becoming my Patron to get the content out on a more regular basis!

You can choose a game or anime that you'd like me to review in the near future. This will be limited by what games/animes I have access to, but I'll let you know if I can't do a review on a particular piece of media, and you can choose something else.

If you offer a name and what Battle Clothing you'd like to wear, plus any additional details about your character, they will receive a cameo in a future part of Sunderland College.

You'll be given access to the private notes and documents for both Cause and Sunderland College. This includes character bios, lore details, texts that didn't make the cut, and much more.

If you give me a brief description of your characters, their Battle Clothing and a kind of story, I'll write a short custom piece set in the world of Sunderland College with your characters, between 3000-5000 words.
