Awesome Story of the Week!
Hi there and welcome to Awesome Story of the Week! Each week I browse the Super Smash Bros. archives looking for a hot and juicy story to fill all your reading needs! If you like it fresh then you've come to the right place! This week we have...
Flame Falcon - The Blue Eyed Twins
As their plans for a relaxing vacation in the countryside dissipate for Ike and Marth because of an accident, Ike follows a set of blue eyed twins to a mansion to phone for help. But is everything as it seems? Are the children real, are they a byproduct of his accident, or are they something else. Something...vengeful? It's October, it's Halloween, let's get some spooks going!
Hey folks! I apologize for the lack of updates this past week, but I don't feel bad blaming it partly on my Thanksgiving (Canadian eh) and partly on my sickness that I'm still trying to get over. I've been writing every now and then, but I haven't been able to get into the swing of things since I've been too distracted. I'm hoping to get something out there soonish so I'm not leaving everyone in the dark.
Between playing sessions of Final Fantasy VI, I've been doing a lot of reading! Not fanfiction mind you, but an actual novel by my favorite author of all time, Stephen King. I picked up Joyland at my local Coles last week, and I hate to say that I haven't been able to put it down since! It piqued my interest when I noticed the book had a strangely similar setting to that of my entry in the Halloween Contest I've entered. It's been a great read, aimed at a young adult audience and featuring a main character that I've never felt a stronger connection with in fiction. I love reading whenever I can, but it's been a while since I actually picked up a book because most of the reading I've done in the past year has been on this website. I encourage anyone to take a break from fanfiction for a while and read a real story every now and then though, since as great as it is to read about your favorite Smash Bros. characters, nothing is as refreshing as reading a novel written and published by a tried and true author. Heck, I'll be lucky if I'm even 0.1% as good as the author Stephen King is. He inspired a lot of the Horror stuff I've written (as terrible as some of them are) and I have a lot of respect for the man. Check out some of his work if you get the chance!
In story-related news...
-Robin and the Horrorland Nightmare - Robin is pretty good at making smart decisions on his own, but what about when his friends' lives are on the line? This is kind of the idea I wanted to run with for a Horror story since I wanted to figure out a way to make characters make decisions based on their emotions as opposed to what I want from them as an author. With any luck, this story should blossom into a gruesome and thrilling tale, but only if I can keep these challenges interesting. What do I mean by challenges? Robin is sure to soon find that out...
-The Wrath of Mama Game & Watch - A fun idea that I wanted to try out. Not only is this a great opportunity for me to write about Mr. Game & Watch, but it also gives me a chance to write about the relationship between Captain Falcon and Zelda, two characters who barely see any interaction within my stories. I also kind of wanted to throw an OC curveball into the mix, creating this character who is supposed to represent Mr. Game & Watch's mom, although I really don't expect anyone to take this seriously. This is just a small story I'm writing for fun so if you happen to come across it, I encourage to let me know your thoughts!
-Kennedy of the West - I've looked at reviews and it looks like a lot of people aren't happy with the way I'm portraying Leon in this story. For the record, I have played Resident Evils 2 and 4, so I have a good understanding of how Leon is supposed to act. This is just one problem among many, so I'm going to be revising all of the chapters in order to help "bring things forward" so to speak. I spent a lot of time on It Came from Lucina's Head, and that story has really helped improve my writing compared to when I started Kennedy of the West, so I plan on carrying over some of that experience to the story. Once all of the chapters have been revised, I will finally post the next chapter and hopefully bring the story to its close.
-Banana Babe Beach Blast - There's probably going to be a few more chapters before I call the story complete. I feel as though I'm spending too much time with some characters and leaving out others, namely the Smashers who went on the pirate experience with Jack Sparrow. I plan on bringing everyone together in the end, but judging from the readers, it sounds like more people want to know what's going on with Lucina and Dedede as opposed to anything else haha.
Life is busy as it always is. If you have any questions about updates, my stories, etc., feel free to PM me.
Smash King24's Profile
Name: Smash King, but everyone calls me Smash.
Status: Busy between work and school. I'll try and get an update on a story out once a week.
3DS Friend Code: 3625-9357-3264 (PM me for friend requests. Let's play some Smash Bros! I'm also a bit of a competitive Pokemon jockey.)
Likes: Video games, namely Super Smash Bros., Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Persona 3, League of Legends, and Minecraft. I also like watching cartoons, some of my favorites including Spongebob Squarepants, Regular Show, and Adventure Time. As for music, my favorite band is Pink Floyd, and anything related to rock or video game soundtracks is really all I listen to.
Dislikes: Tofu. That's... about it. Or all that's worth mentioning at least.
Hobbies: Reading, writing, singing, coding, playing the guitar. Oh, and playing video games.
Currently playing: Pokemon Omega Ruby, Super Smash Bros. 4 3DS, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, Grand Theft Auto 5, Ecco the Dolphin 3D, Final Fantasy VI.
Favorite pairings: MarioxPeach, LinkxZelda, LinkxSamus, IkexZelda, FalconxSamus, FalconxLucina, RobinxLucina, LucinaxPalutena, ShulkxFiora. Yeah, I like to play it safe sometimes, but with a fandom like Smash Bros. you can't really help but mix and match.
Favorite Pokemon: Jigglypuff, Gardevoir, Ninjask, Meloetta, Infernape, Glalie.
Smash Bros. Mains: Ike, Captain Falcon.
Amiibos (with their respective names): Mario (Marisalami), Sheik (Pooka), Zelda (P. Diggy), Yoshi (Srs Broshi), Ike (TheRealIke).
Words To Live By: "Manliness before victory!"
Writing Abilities: English is love. English is life. It's also one of the most broken languages our society has ever known. I consider my writing abilities to be above average mainly because of the courses I've taken and the amount of experience I've had writing things between school, work, and my hobbies. My writing has certainly improved since when I first joined this site back in 2009, so you might find my older stories to be rather mediocre compared to my more recent works. You can expect a certain level of quality from my writing, but I'm nowhere near good enough to call myself a real author. I just like writing to entertain people so if you're expecting something like Tolkien or Stephen King, then I'm afraid you'll have to look elsewhere.
Reading: I'm mostly known in the Super Smash Bros. community as both as avid reader and writer. Stories that I find myself clinging onto usually include Humor, Adventure, Romance, Friendship, or anything with interesting pairings. I also don't mind reading those typical "OC goes to Smash Bros. land" stories even though more often than not they follow the same structure, and by that I mean they are either never completed or the main character is a Mary Sue. Stories that I follow will almost always strictly include Smash Bros. characters, and they'll also be catered around the teenage to adult audience. Stories that I stay far away from are the ones that are (for lack of a better word) unoriginal. You know the kind. Truth or Dares, Mishon from God knockoffs, Ask the Smashers, Submit Your OCs, Smashers React, Support Conversations... I've been around for a while and I've seen 'em all come and go. One thing that the Smash fanfiction community really lacks is originality, but I suppose perhaps that is asking too much from a fanbase that is mostly composed of children. Ah well, a guy can dream I guess.
Stories: When I first started writing fanfiction, I almost exclusively wrote Super Smash Bros. Resident Evil crossovers. There are some people who know me just for those stories, but in more recent years I've kind of segregated myself into the Smash Bros. community. As a result, the writing quality in the crossovers tends to be lacking compared to stuff I've published in the past couple years. Most of my stories tend to fall under the Horror genre, although I have dabbled with Romance, Adventure, and Humor numerous times in the past. I have a few other stories that don't fall under the Smash Bros. or Resident Evil categories, but those ones never really saw much attention from me. Smash is pretty much what I do now, although I do go back to visit Resident Evil every now and then. If you're looking for a new story to read, I would recommend taking a look at either It Came from Lucina's Head, Obsessed, or Lucas' Doll. If you're looking for something else, just take a peek at what I got below and see if anything suits your fancy.
Reviews: My reviews used to be pretty mean when I started out, but now they tend to be a mix between criticism and praise. I'm not afraid to point out things that I think could have been improved in a chapter, but by the same token, I almost always make sure to say something positive to cancel out the negatives. Disregarding my reviews from 2009-2011, if you do receive a negative review from me, then chances are you deserve it. On the other hand, if I find it hard to criticize your story, then you'll probably hear nothing but praise from me. Most of the people who read my reviews tend to agree with me though, and authors almost always come back to me seeking advice when they realize there was something that they could have done better. The reason why I review this way is because I expect the same thing from reviews whenever I see them on my own stories. If something doesn't seem right about a story then don't be afraid to shout it out! Otherwise the author might be doing something completely wrong without realizing it, which will undoubtedly end up affecting the story several chapters down the line. So if I happen to give you advice in a review, please heed it. If I didn't care about where you were taking your story, I wouldn't have left a review in the first place.
Whether they're talented writers or awesome people, this is a section dedicated to the wonderful friends I have had the pleasure of meeting on this site.

Timeline in my Stories
Most of my stories follow a specific timeline (despite the fact that there's only a few of them that actually address this). In this universe, the Smashers live in a mansion called "Smash Mansion" (how original right) that is located in an isolated part of Japan surrounded by a great forest away from civilization. This pretty much means that yes, the Smashers do live on earth, and they train under Master Hand to become the strongest fighters in the universe. That's basically what the Super Smash Bros. is in this timeline. How does the Nintendo company fit into all of this? Good question; I've been asking myself that since Day 1.
Besides my stories, other canon events between the Smash Bros. and Resident Evil games have also taken place. This is illustrated below as follows:
So that's about it. Any other stories of mine that aren't in this timeline aren't a part of it and are really just there for funsies. Hope this helped and happy reading!
