Author has written 15 stories for Legend of Zelda.
4/7/16: Sequel to The Demonbound Sheikah is now online: The Soulbound Princess.
12/29/15: I thought I was done with writing fanfiction, but it turns out I wasn't. Back again with a new story, The Demonbound Sheikah (when will it stop D: ). Removed the huge wall of text from my profile so it's now a smaller wall of text.
10/3/13: OA is officially complete. Now working on When I Return and possible new Nightmare Dethl story.
9/30/12: After nearly a year, Occult Ascendancy is back online with the conclusion of Rend. We're going full gear on OA until it's finished. Thanks for your patience!
9/25/11: I should've said this a month ago, but Occult Ascendancy will be on a hiatus until I get further in Rend! I'm so so so sorry, I think this is my first hiatus ever. Hopefully it won't be too long before I update again :'(
12/14/10 - Against my better judgment, Occult Ascendancy is up up up! I will still follow poll results and focus on Rend for the most part. Don't fret - finishing Rend will be my top priority.
I have fanfic-related flip-book animations on youtube now: if interested, please look for the user name tam3shi :)
Hello, nice to meet you. Fleets here.
I guess I started writing when I was both blessed and cursed by excessive free time (which is now a rare commodity D:). I now juggle two accounts, one on ff.net and one on deviantart (see "homepage"), and the devart is used to submit art on characters from my stories (among other random junk).
So, if you like what I write (and I hope you do) then with encouragement I’ll be fast/er with my updates (at least I'll try). Constructive criticism appreciated!
I probably won't write smut, but I'm more open to the idea of M-rated material.
Thanks for looking!
Random messages from the author:
If my earlier stories at any point ever sounded homophobic or sexist or what have you I am very very very VERY sorry (I was rereading some of my old stuff and I cringed). I was young and stupid and... stupid. If you have no idea what I'm talking about then carry on as though I never said anything.
Some stories that will most likely never happen.
Possible future projects (most likely void):
We are Dethl: Our story begins when you fall asleep. Our story ends when you awaken. But you, sorcerer, will never wake, because once you enter our world we will never let you leave.
Unique from my other stories in that this is reader-interactive, with certain plot decisions based on reader voting outcomes.
The Ornamental Girl: Someone requested a VaatixOC story once upon a time, and though romance isn't my forte, I've been entertaining the idea for some time. Here's the gist: Being the eldest daughter of the local fisherman, seventeen year old Wren Pinetti was raised with the responsibilities of a boy so that her father could pass on the family business in peace. When she grudgingly dresses up as a lady to celebrate her cousin's wedding, she unwittingly catches the eye of a certain sorcerer who had been passing through the village.
May tie in ideas with the female mages in FSA who were supporters of Vaati.
Completed works and works in progress:
The Soulbound Princess: My current time waster. Sequel to The Demonbound Sheikah.
Several months after Dethl was sent back to the Dark World, Hyrule continues to try to recover from the extensive damage it had suffered from the Nightmare's and Vaati's attacks. Things seem to be looking up, until an assassin appears at Princess Zelda's 20th birthday celebration. While Vaati manages to find the assassin before they could launch their attack, he pays a terrible price during the encounter when he underestimates their abilities: they use the power of an ancient mask that sucks all of his power, reverting him back to a Minish, as well as bringing him to the verge of death.
Zelda is able to keep him alive by sharing the power of her Triforce, but the Triforce was never meant to be shared between two people. Eventually, the Triforce will one day become whole again in one individual, and when that happens the other will die.
Sheik and Vaati work to uncover the assassin's plot, and they discover that the threat may have been bigger than they ever could have imagined, spanning not just their world, but the Dark World as well. Lorule's Princess Hilda may be the only one who may have the power to save them both, but rumor has it that she has gone missing, with her, too, a victim of a mysterious assassin's attack...
The Demonbound Sheikah: Complete. Will write a better summary later.
Forget-me-nots and Violets: Sequel to When I Return. This story happened when I got more questions than answers after writing WIR (e.g. "if Vaati and Zelda get together, then wouldn't Hyrule be really upset about it?"). A story of forgiveness and understanding.
When I Return: Originally a one-shot, now a multi-chapter story. First romance story I've ever attempted, so be prepared for a potential train-wreck. Also it happens to be Stockholm Syndrome captive/romance story, which is particularly tricky since I'm trying not to romanticize abuse and kidnapping. Oh and it's a VaaZel.
Legend 2012: Occult Ascendancy: It's not as LoZ as my other stories, but I'm going to try my best to keep the elements in there ;)
Sequel to Legend 2010: Avilux Ignis
Gale Engst, now known as Vaati Engst, is happily content with life minus one small (er... actually really big) problem; he hasn't been able to figure out how to stop his reincarnation curse that had landed him with the problems revealed in his last adventure with Avilux. He knows that his life as Vaati right now is only a short respite of regaining all of his memories as the great and powerful sorcerer, for as soon as his current life ends he will cease to remember everything and go back to being some bumbling, clueless idiot with no idea of his past glory.
Rend: The rewrite of my first project Beyond Centuries, including both halves.
Check out the original, Beyond Centuries, at your own risk if you are a new reader (there be spoilers and bad writing sometimes).
Once again, I would like to reiterate that this is not a boyxboy romance, and the most it will go to is friendship. Feel free to see it as yaoi, but if you do (and happen to not like yaoi), don't angrily yell at me for it because that wasn't my original intention...
Legend 2010: Avilux Ignis: It's year 2010 and Gale Engst is a relatively normal brooding teenager boy living in affluent suburban NJ. His hobbies include longboarding, playing on his Xbox, and being a general douchebag to almost everyone in sight. One day, however, a teen with a questionable past by the name of Malenko "Link" Petrov shows up on his front doorstep with an outrageous claim that he is not Gale Engst but the reincarnation of a wind sorcerer who lived more than 8,000 years ago. To make matters worse, Link makes the claim that Gale is the only person who can prevent worldwide disaster from occurring and he is slowly dragged into an adventure he does not want.
Tainted Heart: I know lots and lots of people have already written stuff about pre MC Vaati's past stories, but I since I'm writing tons on Vaati I figured I'd add something like this to my collection.
Though you don't need to read my other stories (Beyond Centuries, The Unresolved) to get this and vice-versa, please check them out if you like what I write because I'm going to refer to some quotes in this story in them (I actually already included them in BC and a little in TU because I'd anticipated writing TH when I wrote them). The first chapter with Vaati reminiscing actually takes place between BC and TU, but this fact quickly becomes irrelevant once I start writing about his past.
Beyond Centuries: The Cursed Sorcerer: This was my biggest project, and first fanfic ever written (so the beginning is especially...ick). It begins at the end of the Four Swords Adventures. The personalities of the four Links Green, Blue, Vio, and Red are influenced by the characters from the Four Swords manga, so yes, they talk.
First fanfic, first disaster. I would point you over to Rend, since it's basically this story but with major improvements.
Beyond Centuries: Hero of Time, Hero of Wind - This is Part 2 of Beyond Centuries. Link and Vaati find themselves in a waterflooded Hyrule, well into the future. They must continue their search for Ganondorf if they hope to make it back to their own era, but what will happen to their strained partnership when their adventure ends?
It's post Wind Waker, and I'm not sure where Phantom Hourglass fits. PH can be placed wherever, it'll still make sense. :D
The Unresolved: Sequel to Beyond Centuries. Vaati has spent several years alone and away from civilization to think and reevaluate his life. He had hoped that he could spend his time quietly by himself, but these hopes are crushed when he finds the six year old daughter of Link and Zelda far away from Hyrule castle. Trouble has been brewing over at Hyrule, and though Vaati could care less what happens he finds himself caught up in the mess.
Rated T to be safe.
Recollections: 19 years have passed since the creation of the Sheikah, and all but one of the few who knew the elusive wind mage are dead. Follow the memories of the past as Princess Zelda attempts to make sense of the chain of events that lead to the downfall of the Sheikah and the death of everyone she knew and loved. Tragedy, depressing, and something I probably didn't need to write in retrospect. Good luck.
