IMPORTANT AUTHOR'S NOTE; DO NOT SKIP OVER THIS:
It is now summer. Which means green fields, blue skies, and reptiles slithering about outside. Meaning that I will be spending as much time as possible outside. I will be doing volunteer work, hunting for reptiles all over the place, getting into breeding reptiles, hopefully getting a paying job, doing a lot of photography, hiking through the woods, having campfires, laying in the grass and stargazing, and other such awesome activities. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I am telling you that I will be spending far less time on the computer because the season of hibernating indoors is now officially over. Days of inactivity may occur. The only time I will have to get on the computer will be either if I'm sick, or at nighttime after the sun does down, and even then it's iffy, because I love stargazing and campfires, which only occur after twilight. Other than that, hurricane weather and days when it's thundering and lightning-ing outside are likely going to be the only days I'm gonna be able to get onto the computer. So...if I have a story that you really like, be patient. If said story happens to have last ended with a cliffhanger coughTheSmallestShredcough, then I beg of you to please be patient. It's a story, not real life. For instance, no one is actually dead. It's fictional. So don't freak out. Just wait patiently. And if you have any ounce of respect for yourself, you'll stop nagging me to update, get off the computer, and follow my example and go outside to get some fresh air and sunshine.
First of all...music that I highly recommend:
If you love the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and loved the music to the game as much as you loved the game, then follow this link:
I found amazing lyrics to the Stone Tower theme song from Majora's Mask! Check it out!
The most incredible lyrics for Midna's Theme song ever!
Lyrics for Saria's Song; just ignore the spelling errors:
Lyrics for the Serenade of Water:
The Song of Storms:
Kakariko Village Theme Song:
Midna's Desperate Hour lyrics; serious made me almost start crying; you'll love this if you love Midna!
Gerudo Valley Theme lyrics:
Song of Time:
Nocturne of Shadow lyrics; sadly they are short:
Okay, music time is over...
I also exist on deviantART under the username 'VoadorChama,' where I am an awesome photographer. You can check out my stuff there at this link:
From here on out, I'm going to phrase my profile like it's a questionaire. Okay? I'll pretend that I'm being interviewed, to make reading my profile more fun and easy for you.
WHAT FANDOMS DO YOU WORK IN?
I am currently am obsessed the Legend of Zelda and Metroid, but I have Star Wars and How To Train Your Dragon WIP's. I also have a few stories on the backburner that have yet to be published, such as a Wii Sports Resort fanfic, a Person of Interest story, and a Slender fanfiction, but they will not be available for quite a while, because I'm trying to finish my LoZ stories first. I published my Metroid stories once, but then I grew to hate how juvenile they were, so I deleted them from this website and am currently working on revamping them.
DO YOU EVER DO CROSSOVERS?
Yes, and I've done a number of them, but...I discontinued one of them because of severe writer's block. It was a Metroid/Spider-man crossover called Spider meets Hunter. It was kind of random, and I'm currently debating whether or not to delete it permanently. It's no longer on this website, but I do still have the file for it, so I might do something with it eventually. I also did a Metroid/Legend of Zelda crossover called Tale of the Twilight Huntress that was quite popular with my readers, but it's riddled with errors and inaccuracies that bug me, so I'll be revamping that as well. TotTH has a sequel, called Winter's Dark, but that's on the backburner right now due to writer's block. :P
HOW GOOD ARE YOU AT WRITING?
Well...I've been writing stories, poems, and songs for most of my life, so I experience, and as such, all of my stories are as good a quality as I can possibly make them. It helps that I was homeschooled, so I know the importance of good grammar, punctuation, and spelling. My early stories weren't that great, I'll be the first to admit. Such stories as Tale of the Twilight Huntress and Trouble on the Horizon were written back when I was brand-new to fanfiction, and I had no clue what I was doing, and Dragon Sword, while it's been quite popular and it's one of my most dearly loved stories, it has a lot of inaccuracies and errors that I want to fix at some point, though probably not anytime soon.
DO YOU HAVE ANY RULES AND/OR GUIDELINES?
I do have rules...very strict rules about allowing anything profane or vulgar in my stories, which includes any readers of my stories to make any profane or vulgar comments in their reviews. Yes, that include curse words. So please, just obey my simple request, and we should get along with each other just fine.
As for guidelines...if you review one of my stories, then please, please write something more descriptive than 'I like this,' or 'Really nice fic so far.' As a writer and crafter of words, nothing irks me more than people not letting me know what they thought of one of my works. I like to know what made you laugh, what made you sad, what made you smile or frown. In other words, just review descriptively. Offer details. And if you're on this website, then chances are, you are thirteen or older, and know how to spell, capitalize and punctuate. In other words, use the English language correctly, and please don't mutilate it with 'text talk.' Please! For the love of 3rd grade English, write properly!
WHAT DOES YOUR USERNAME MEAN? HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH IT?
My username is Brazilian Portuguese, and, roughly translated, means 'Sky Soldier.' I originally came up with it as the name for a character in a novel of mine. This character was a massive golden eagle, partnered with a knight who could command the wind and clouds. When I joined this website a year later, I was wracking my brain for something unique and inventive, so I went through all of my book characters and finally decided on the golden eagle's name. Actually, I almost settled on the name 'Ralyna,' which means 'Stealth,' but I decided that 'Sky Soldier' sounded awesomer. XD
HAVE YOU EVER COME UP WITH ANY ORIGINAL CODES OR LANGUAGES?
I have four languages of my own: Iltna, Tilgua, a written form of Ancient Hylian, and Shaekar. They're still incomplete, though, so don't be asking me to give you the full grammar and sentence structures of those tongues. I also once made up a code, but I never use it unless I want to write a document that I don't want anyone else to be able to understand.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PRIVATE MESSAGING SYSTEM?
Well...if you're curious about the name of a character in one of my stories, then PM me and ask how I came up with it. If you spot any inaccuracies or spelling errors in ANY of my stories, then PM me and tell me, and tell me where it is so that I can fix it. You can just copy-and-paste the sentence that the misspelled word is in and tell me which story and chapter it's in, if you want, unless you like being super-specific. RedNemi does that a lot, so I'm used to it. Also PM me if you spot a spelling error in this profile that you're reading. You can also just PM me if you're bored and want to talk, though I can't guarantee that I'll be able to sound perfectly sane while communicating with you. I'm kinda...abstract. XD I do have a real life outside of this computer, and that requires that I get a sane amount of sleep, which means if I abruptly stop replying to you, it's probably because I went to bed. I try to keep friendly relations with the people on this website, but I can't stay up past midnight to talk to people who, for all I know, are on the other side of the world. Just remember: it might be midday or the afternoon where you are, but it might be midnight where I am.
WHAT ANIMALS DO YOU LIKE?
I love all animals. Even spiders and creepy-crawlies have their own form of scary, scream-worthy beauty. snakes, lizards, turtles, crocadilians, frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, cats, otters, dragons, rats, and birds. Especially snakes and lizards. Wait, didn't I already mention lizards at the beginning of this thing? As you may have guessed, I'm a huge lover of all herps.
WHILE WE'RE ON THIS SUBJECT, HOW MANY ANIMALS DO YOU HAVE?
Um...a dog, two cats, a rabbit, three lizards, a snake, a lot of fish(I never bothered counting them), a mouse, and six chickens. My house is known for being a zoo. XD
DO YOU REVIEW THE STORIES YOU READ? DO YOU LIKE GETTING REVIEWS?
I do try to review all stories that I read, yes. However, due mostly to a twisted time schedule on my part, I tend to just read as far as possible, then provide a good, sensible, and constructive review at the last chapter. I will review as much as I can, but sometimes, I simply don't have enough time to provide you with a good review on every chapter, and I absolutely refuse to just write something lazy like 'good job' or 'really nice fic so far.' I prefer to provide details. As you've probably noticed while reading my crazily long profile. Do I like getting reviews? What writer doesn't? If you read one of my stories, then please, by all means, review it! I don't appreciate flamers, though, and I will report any flames as abuse or spam. No, I'm not being a wimp, I just don't feel like putting up with that kind of crap every time I check the reviews that I get. Sometimes, if I find an excellent story, but I don't have time to read it, then I'll just favorite and follow that story, then return to it another day. I did that with a Robin Hood fanfiction. I STILL haven't read it due to business, but I'll get around to it...someday. So if I've faved or followed one of your stories, but I haven't reviewed it yet, then I WILL get around to it, I just haven't had enough time to read through it and provice a good, constructive review.
WHAT'S YOUR WORLDVIEW?
...I dislike politics. I actively oppose evolution and promote creationism. I will be glad to talk to you on the subject, and no, I will not start insulting anyone. I always stay strictly professional in my conversations on Creation/Evolution so as not to hurt anyone's feelings. I am also a Christian, and willing to talk to anyone about God, but no, I'm not going to ram my beliefs down your throat.

WHAT ABOUT YOUR FANFICTIONS?
Concerning my noble profession of storytelling: I tend to write a lot throughout the week. However, if I spend too much time focused on one particular story, I will get severe writer's block mainly because I've been focusing on it too much. I'm usually working on quite a few different stories at once, so please, if you have found a story of mine that you like, but it isn't complete yet, then wait patiently. Trust me, I always finish what I've started, but sometimes it may take me a while to do so. Occasionally, I'll discontinue one of my stories, which pretty much just means that it's on hold for now, but I plan on finishing it someday. I never trash a story unless it is actually deserving of the title 'trash.' If you have found a story that I discontinued, then know this: I WILL finish it some day. I just have more pressing matters to do first(Or a severe, crippling form of writer's block). And sorry, but because of my crazy, psychotic brain, I am always working on at least three stories at once, so forgive me if I take forever to complete the one. On the bright side, at least I can focus without screwing up the timelines and stuff.
DO YOU EVER DEDICATE YOUR STORIES TO ANYONE? DO YOU PUT DISCLAIMERS ON YOUR STORIES?
Well, all of my stories are dedicated to various people, yes. Most often it's the person I was thinking of when I began that story, or the person who's helped me with my story the most. Or it could be dedicated to someone completely random, heh heh. XD I put disclaimers on the first chapter of my stories only. I see no need to keep repeating stuff every time I start a new chapter; if you need to reread the disclaimer, then just go back to the first chapter. Although, if you're even reading fanfiction, then chances are, you already know who owns what. So sometimes I get kinda lazy and forget to put a disclaimer and dedication on the front of my book. Sorry about that. I'll try to do better. :o)
SEE IF YOU CAN GUESS WHAT THIS IS EXPLAINING:
"...it's about this ten-year-old green kid, no, it's not the kid that's green, he wears a green tunic-thing with a pointy hat, looks kind of like an elf with a tiny sword and a wooden shield. Well, yeah, basically he gets kicked out of his home by a talking tree who wants him to save the world and he gets stuck with a blue fairy that never shuts up and he has to endure everything from living skeletons to ghosts so that he can fight this ugly dude who laughs a lot and rescue the moronic princess who can't fend for herself and he eventually becomes the greatest hero who ever lived and after that gets sucked into another realm by an imp-thing and has to save yet another universe...did I mention that he can time-travel?"
MY VIEWS OF THE SHEIK/ZELDA GENDER DEBATE; PLEASE DO NOT SKIP OVER AND READ WITH AN OPEN MIND:
I firmly believe that Sheik and Zelda are two, separate people. I have reasons to believe this. However, rather than struggle to explain, I shall copy-and-paste the argument of another person who supports the theory of Sheik and Zelda being two separate people who were raised together. These are her/his words, not mine, but I agree wholeheartedly:
1) The canon evidence is very, very ambiguous. You cannot forget this - if it wasn't ambiguous, there'd be no argument! Zelda's statement after she appears at the Temple of Time? "I apologize for meeting you in disguise" - the way it's worded isn't specific on whether it's just this one time or whether it had been the entire time. Quite frankly, it can be either.
There are a few different possible scenarios based on what little canon we do have.
1) Zelda is just wearing drag and changes cosmetic differences (why I think this isn't possible is in the next point).
I've stuck with explanation number three.
And finally, within the scope of the game, Sheik is clearly meant to be seen as a male character by others. Ruto refers to him as male both in the English and in the Japanese, and so the common rebuttal is, "Well, Ruto must be wrong or lying". What's the point? Link clearly sees Sheik as male, since he didn't exactly look astonished at Ruto's statement. Sheik is hardly a feminine figure to other characters, then.
2) Sheik has a masculine body. Zelda has a feminine body. There's no room for interpretation here - the four official artworks featuring Sheik show muscled arms and legs, broad shoulders, and narrow hips. The official art for Zelda shows slim arms (it doesn't show her legs, but I doubt they're as muscled as Sheik's) and a far smaller hips-to-shoulders ratio.
Additionally, binding? Not a good idea, and not realistic, either. It does not give you the build Sheik has. Not to mention the fact that binding only with ace bandages is actually extremely dangerous for long periods of time (distorting ribs, producing severe breathing problems, and even potentially causing heart failure if worn for too long, and wearing bandages when sleeping can cause them to tighten and cause sleep apnea), and should only be done with bandages at least six inches wide (otherwise, they are prone to slipping frequently - like every ten minutes or with pretty much any arm movement - and Sheik jumps around too much for slippage to be an issue). They're also pretty ineffective, even for chests as small as A-cups, with people who bind describing the final look as 'weird', 'lumpy', and that they 'hurt.'
Additionally, they have clear physical differences in terms of skill - quite aside from appearance, we can see that Sheik is capable of either a) jumping some height, or b) instantly teleporting somewhere high up (evidence: the cutscene at the lake, where he ends up at the top of a tree in about a second). When Link and Zelda are running from the castle at the end of the game and the castle is collapsing around them, Zelda gets trapped in a ring of fire. If she was simply Sheik in drag, then how come she can't simply jump/teleport out and free herself? It makes absolutely no sense her to stay in that ring unless she can't free herself, not when her - and Link's - life is at stake.
3) They show differing behavior when facing danger. Whenever a monster approaches or a boulder falls near Link when they're escaping the castle, Zelda gasps and yelps a little. She is not very composed - and nothing wrong with that. Not everyone is a warrior, and she's had a rather harrowing seven years. But Sheik, during the Kakariko cutscene, attempts to take on an invisible monster that threatens Link with his bare hands. The fact that he fails is a moot point - he still tries it. No gasping and yelping involved. (Well. Until he gets thrown head first down a flight of stairs, and then I challenge you not to yelp!)
In a harrowing situation like both of those, there's no time or sense for pretense. If Sheik truly was Zelda, 'he' would have reacted in the same way Zelda reacts to danger in the castle. What we see at the well is Sheik's behaviour, not Zelda's.

I TOOK A PERSONALITY QUIZ. IT WAS ABOUT 99% ACCURATE. WHICH FREAKED ME OUT.
Apparently, I have been classified as an "Analytical Thinker." Well, yes, that does describe me perfectly. XD
It said that I'm logical, original, and a creative thinker, and can become very excited about theories and ideas. That's true enough. It also said that I'm exceptionally capable and driven to turn theories into clear understandings, and I highly value knowledge, competence, and logic. That is also very true. Apparently I'm quiet and reserved, and hard to get to know well. That was also totally accurate. It also said that I'm individualistic, having no interest in leading or following others. I can say that that was not correct. I am perfectly fine with following. As for leading...nope. I'm not much of a leader. It also said that I'm highly analytical, and can discover connections between two seemingly unrelated things, and that I work best when I'm allowed to use their imagination and critical thinking. That was also correct. So it only got one thing wrong about me. Hello, Harold Finch. :P
Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them more.
I am the girl that spends most of her free time reading, writing, or doing other activities that most teenagers wouldn't call normal. I am the girl that people call weird either behind her back or to her face. I am the girl that doesn't spend all her time on Facebook or Twitter. I am the girl that has stopped to smell the flowers and jump and splash in the rain. But I am also the girl who knows and is proud of who she is, who doesn't care if people call her weird, who loves reading and writing and doing the things that no one seems to have the time to do anymore, who can express herself better with small, subtle actions than with words, and who knows the importance of the little things. I am me, not just another faceless clone in the crowd.
You're a 90's kid if you remember when it was actually worth getting up on a Saturday to watch cartoons. If you remember when everything was settled with rock-paper-scissors or eenie-meenie-miny-moe. If you remember when we used to obey our parents. If you used to listen to the radio all day long just to record your favorite song of all time on tape. If you remember when Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis became popular. If you always wanted to send in a tape to America's Funniest Home Videos...but were never able to actually tape anything funny. If you remember watching The Magic Schoolbus on PBS. If you remember when yo-yos were cool. If you remember those Where's Waldo? and I Spy books. If you remember watching the 1st Batman and Aladdin. If you collected those Beanie Babies. If you even know what an orignal Walkman actually was. If you remember playing on merry-go-rounds as a kid. If you remember when light-up sneakers were cool. If you remember when you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs. If you remember when we recorded stuff on VCRs. If you had slap bracelets. If you actually played outside until it was dark. Way back...before we all realized that this stuff would eventually disappear...I miss those days...

YOU KNOW YOU'RE AN AUTHOR IF...
You talk to yourself a lot. (A lot meaning all the time...)
You talk to yourself about talking to yourself. (e.g. 'Why do I constantly ask myself random things?')
When you talk to yourself, you often talk to yourself like you're talking to someone else. (e.g. 'Have you ever noticed that deliver could mean someone's liver?')
After uttering a profound piece of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand with awe and say, "Wow, this stuff is great for sugar highs!" (Not quite...)
You live off of sugar and caffeine. (The two greatest things ever discovered!)
Your e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random. (My poor friends...they gave up trying to understand my e-mails a long time ago.)
When replying to an e-mail, you'll never actually address the point of it. (Again, I pity my friends.)
No matter where you are in a room you never have to get up to find a pen/pencil and paper. (Well, no matter where I am in the house, I never have to leave the room to find a pen/pencil and paper. Sometimes I have to get up, although it's rare.)
The letters on your keyboard are wearing off. ('Tis true! Heh heh heh!)
Your friends and family think that you have carpal tunnel syndrome. (True, that.)
People think you have A.D.D. (Sometimes. It kinda depends on whether or not I've had my coffee and sugar yet.)
You think it'd be really cool to have A.D.D. (No comment)
You know you have A.D.H.D. (Almost.)
You constantly start talking in third person, present or past tense. (I talk in past tense, and occasionally third person. I despise present tense.)
You start thinking about making lists like this and start giggling for no "apparent" reason. (I'm giggling as I write this. I think I will make a list like this! Hee hee hee!)
Your friends stopped looking at you funny when you laugh for no apparent reason a loooooong time ago. (Yep, my poor family thinks I lost my mind years ago.)
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED...
Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin? (A really good point...)
Why women can’t put on mascara with their mouth closed? (I'm not one-hundred-percent sure that this one is true, because I've never worn makeup.)
Why don’t you ever see the headline ‘Psychic Wins Lottery’? (Uh...because psychics don't exist?)
Why is ‘abbreviated’ such a long word? (There is an abbreviation for 'abbreviation' It's abv.)
Why is it that doctors call what they do ‘practice’? (Ok, now I'm getting scared...)
Why is it that to stop Windows 7, you have to click on ‘Start’? (Hmm...I shall test that...wait, no! *crash*)
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and dishwashing liquid is made with real lemons? (I have no idea)
Why the man who invests all your money is called a broker? (Exactly why I hate banks. My money is always nice and safe in a hidden vault inside my own house. Never trust a banker!!!)
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour? (I dunno. Never tried driving through it.)
Why isn’t there mouse-flavored cat food? (Because then the cat would feel the need to chase the food.)
When dog food is new and improved, who tests it? (The dogs. Duh. They have a bunch of them all locked up in little white cages in an insane asylum. Just kidding.)
Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections? (Why do they do injections at all? Beheading is so much quicker and less painful. Although it is messy...just ignore me, people. I've gone crazy.)
Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes? (Actually, insects can live through floods easily, so I don't think those two skeeters were even on the ark.)
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don’t they make the whole plane out of the stuff? (Because then the plane would be too heavy to get off of the ground. Duh.)
Why don’t sheep shrink when it rains? (Because it's not hot water, it's cold water.)
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together? (Because the people who live in them WISH that they were apart.)
If con is opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress? (YESYESYES!!!!)
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal? (I hereby resolve to NEVER fly in a plane.)
Why is it that, when someone tells you that there are over a billion stars in the universe, you believe them, but if there is a 'wet paint' sign somewhere, you have to touch it to make sure? (I've never done that myself, but I do know people who have.)
Why do you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead? (Because we're all idiots.)
I would like to say something to all of you who read not only my stories, but other author's also. We, the authors that write FF, are not paid for it. We have no publishers, and no one to help us to make the publicity of our work. And that means that we have no sales statistics or critic's comments to know how good or bad the story is. We write because we love to do it and we love to share what are imagination can conjure. The only way we have to know if our story is good or bad is for you to let us know what you think about it. And for you to do that you have to leave us a review.
Review if you think the chapter is bad.

A NOTE TO GOD:
Even though my breakfast table never looks like the pictures in magazines, and the menu is at times unbalanced, thank you, Lord, for the food I have. There are many who are hungry.
Even though I clutch at my blanket and growl when the alarm rings, thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.
Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible, thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.
Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising, thank you, Lord, and I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.
Even though the first hour in my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned, tempers are short, and people are so loud, thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.
Even though the routine of my job is often monotonous, thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.
Thank you, Lord, that I have food in my pantry, ears to hear, eyes to see, strength to rise, family, and work.

Things That God WON'T Ask On The Last Day:
1: God won't ask what kind of car you drove. He'll ask how many people you drove who didn't have transportation.
2: God won't ask you the square footage of your house. He'll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.
3: God won't ask about the clothes you had in your closet. He'll ask how many people you helped clothe.
4: God won't ask you how high your salary was. He'll ask you if you compromised your character to obtain it.

WOULD YOU RUN? IMAGINE THIS HAPPENING TO YOU:
One Sunday morning during service, a 2,000 member congregation was surprised to see two men enter...both covered from head to toe in black and carrying submachine guns.
One of the men proclaimed, "Anyone willing to take a bullet for Christ, remain where you are."
Immediately, the choir fled...the deacons fled...and most of the congregation fled.
Out of the 2,000 there only remained 20.
The man who had spoken took off his hood...then looked at the preacher and said with a smile, "Okay, Pastor, I got rid of all the hypocrites. Now you may begin your service. Have a nice day!"
And the two men turned and walked out.
It's funny how simple it is for people to trash God, and then wonder why the world is in the condition it is today.
The Good Samaritan:
A Sunday school teacher was telling her class, in detail, the story of the Good Samaritan. She asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?"
A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence. "I think I'd throw up."
Did Noah Fish?
A Sunday school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark?"
"No," replied Johnny. "How could he, with just two worms."
The Lord Is My Shepherd
A Sunday school teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible: Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous.
When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know."
A Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable. What does she say?"
The little boy replied, "Thank God he's in bed!"
Did you know that...
When you carry the Bible, Satan has a headache.
A father was at the beach with his children when his four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand. "Daddy, what happened to him?" the boy asked.
"He died and went to Heaven," the dad replied.
The boy thought for a moment, then said, "Did God throw him back down?"
A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, "Would you like to say the blessing?"
"I wouldn't know what to say, Mommy," the girl replied.
"Just say what you hear Mommy say," the wife answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said, "Lord, why on Earth did I invite all these people to dinner?"

MOST HATED LEGEND OF ZELDA CHARACTERS:
1: The Great Fairy (Ocarina of Time version. She's not so bad in Wind Waker or Twilight Princess, though.)
2: Ilia (Did you guys know that Ilia is a boy's name, not a girl's name? I'm firmly against any Link/Ilia ships.)
3: Kotake (With the Twinrova raising him, it's no wonder Ganondorf became as messed-up as he was.)
4: Koume (See above explanation.)
5: Deku Princess (I know there's no real reason to hate her, but her lisp or whatever it is gets on my nerves.)
6: Makar (The spud is always getting himself eaten. And the rattling sound he makes when he walks gets on my nerves.)
7: Medli (Her wings are cool, but that's about it. She's kind of a ditz.)
8: Princess Zelda (I know, I've got about a dozen people thirsting for my blood after this one, but I'm unrepentant. She's not so bad in Twilight Princess, but I didn't like her in Wind Waker or Ocarina of Time. And she looks stupid in Skyward Sword.)
9: Tingle (I swear he's a pedophile or something. Why else would he follow Link around Termina while tied to a balloon?)
10: The Postman (That's either underwear or spandex that he's wearing, but either way, it's a big facepalm. And he's irresponsible with the mail. Honestly, feeding letters to goats, dropping mail into water...)
11: Ingo (His eyebrows scare me.)
12: Talon (I just get annoyed at how you have to wait a day and a night every time just to wake him up.)
13: Beth (She's creepy. Twilight Princess Beth, not the Poe Sister Beth.)
14: The Doctor (Whatever his name is, that dude in Twilight Princess who's a quack and a ripoff.)
15: Falbi (THE most terrifying LoZ character ever created! *shudder*)
16: Wind Waker Ganondorf (He's fat and creepy.)
17: Telma (She just...scares me.)
18: Ruto (WHY would a Zora fall in love with a Hylian? That makes no sense!)
19: Rauru (He's not really that bad, except I have a suspicion that he's really Kaepora Gaebora in disguise, and Tannin Starflare hates him, so I hate him.)
20: Link (I'm referring to Darunia's son here, not the green-clad Link that we all know and love. You do NOT name a Goron after a Hylian. You just...don't.)
21: King of Red Lions (I think he's really Sean Connery in disguise)
22: Midna (Only when she's in her true form. She's okay as an imp, though.)
23: Niko (His 'challenges' are so easy that it's pathetic. All this guy really does is waste your time.)
24: Valoo (That dragon is seriously out of proportion. And since when do dragons have tiny fairy wings?)
25: Fyer (He scares me.)
26: Jabu-Jabu/Jabun (Only in LoZ would a whale be a dungeon. *facepalm*)
27: Bokoblins (They're kind of the most pointless enemy in every LoZ game. I swear, Nintendo just sticks them in various places all over Hyrule Field/Great Sea just to annoy us.)
28: Malo (Beware of a two-year-old who can run his own franchise and invent brainwashing music.)
MOST LOVED LEGEND OF ZELDA CHARACTERS:
1: Sheik (I firmly believe that Sheik is male, and a separate entity from Zelda. Zelda impersonated him to give Link the Light Arrows, but every other time you ever see him, it's Sheik, not Zelda.)
2: Link (Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask version. He's too serious in Twilight Princess.)
3: Dark Link (I love exploring his character in-depth, but no, I don't believe that he's just some lost, demonic soul. He's something...far more complex.)
4: Death Mountain Trail Guard (AKA, Tannin Starflare. XD)
5: Japas (I love his bass guitar and his punk-rock attitude.)
6: Impa (Scariest ally ever. XD)
7: Grog (He's just...awesome. No reason why, really. Actually, JesusLover13 is the reason. XD)
8: Malon (For some reason, she's adorable.)
9: Keaton (This fox is epic. He needs to be in more games.)
10: Navi (Yes, I know, most people hate her, but she's hilarious.)
11: Auru (I have a sneaking suspicion about him...)
12: Rusl (I love how he and Link are like brothers, and yet at the same time they have a father/son relationship.)
13: Colin (I don't know why, but I like him. He's adorable)
14: Kafei (Darn kid's sidequest is so darn hard to complete that I admire him for it.)
15: Tatl (I used to hate her, but now I love her because of my 100-Themes story.)
16: Romani (Who doesn't love someone who refers to themselves in third-person and has a fascination with aliens? XD)
17: Cremia (I like her conversation that she has with Link on the milk cart. For some reason, I like her personality.)
18: Evan (The bandleader. His personality kinda bugs me, but I like to enter his room and listen to him playing the piano. It's very relaxing.)
19: Skull Kid (You have to respect someone who almost destroyes an entire world and is good at playing the flute.)
20: Majora (I don't know why, but this mask creeps me out in a humorous way. I like his whip attacks.)
21: The Five Froggy Tenors (I love frogs. 'Nuff said.)
22: Stalfos (For some reason, they are scarily cool enemies.)
23: Darknuts (The Twilight Princess versions.)
24: Ralis (He almost dies, and then helps you catch a giant, smelly fish. I think he's cool.)
25: Rutela (The Zora Queen. She's so graceful, and I love how you hear the Serenade of Water playing while she's present.)
26: Talo (I love how, at first, he's a bratty kid, but then he grows and matures and genuinely does his best.)
27: Ashei (I have my own theories about her origins and stuff, but she's also a really cool, hard-core swordmaster.)
28: Shad (He's kind of adorable. To be honest, I have my theories about his origins, too. XD)
29: Fado (At first, I couldn't care less about him. I just thought his minigame of herding the goats was fun. Then I read Hasenpfeffer's story and got hooked on him. XD)
DO YOU RECOMMEND ANY FANFICTIONS?

"The Melody of Souls," written by Ceu Praca, copyrighted to the aforementioned author, to the tune of "Ancient Words" by Michael W. Smith:
"Ever clear, ever bright,
Light is flooding, darkness fading,
Guardians of the farthest hills
Fire's shadow, watching us,
Crimson eye now stained with tears,
One born under flaring star
A place is worth a thousand pictures...
It was once said by a wise man, "A picture is worth a thousand words," but photographers have experienced the epiphany of "A single place is worth a thousand pictures." We don't have to go on a safari to take awesome pictures. If you can't see the immense beauty in the here and now, neither will you see it where you want to see it. Wherever you are right now, take a moment to meditate on your immediate surroundings, observing everything around you. Beauty is all around us, but most of the time we are blind to it. Again, photography is about appreciating the beauty of your own reality rather than appreciating someone else's beauty. A photo that says "I'm too good for you" has hijacked the art of photography. Don't take your camera on 'an adventure' until you've exhausted the beauty of your here and now.
A photo shouldn't be better than you...
Photography as an art form? It's not merely aesthetic. The purpose of photography is to magnify beauty, of which you can only appreciate a speck of it without the perspective of a mystic. Photography RESPECTS beauty, it doesn't seek to rape it. Photography seduces you into the ecstasy of the here and now, and it can't do so if the photo is better than you. A photo isn't supposed to portray a reality that you yourself can't experience. A photo that's too good actually sucks...it belittles your own daily experience. Good photography shares with you a perspective of your here and now that you've never seen before. A good photo gives you a more whole experience of your daily reality. Next time you look at a photo, give notice to how that photo makes you feel. Does it make you feel good about yourself, or does it make you feel terrible about yourself?

Once upon a time there was a beautiful princess. She was kind, caring and polite like all princesses were. She lived in a castle far away. One day, while she was picking flowers, a dragon captured her and took her to his lair that was hidden far from the kingdom. She stayed with the dragon for months. Then one day a handsome knight in shining armor came and shouted "FEAR NOT FAIR MAIDEN! I AM HERE TO RESCUE YOU FROM THIS FOUL BEAST!" 95% of girls would scream "MY HERO!"
