Awesome Story of the Week!
Back by popular demand! And in HIGH DEFINITION (I wish)! This is a section where I highlight the hottest stories popping up in YOUR Super Smash Bros. archive! This week we have:
Alex The Smasher - Smash Rebellion
Ever since he lost his parents during the Invasion thirteen years ago, Roy has spent his life protecting his younger brother Lucas. When he stops a small robbery in the streets, everything begins to change... Don't miss out!
Chapter 2 of "Meta Knight and the Infinite Sadness" has been posted! It's still early on so there's no telling where this story is headed. I have several ideas on where I'd like to take this, but I'm not sure exactly on where I want to go. That's doesn't mean I've hit a roadblock or anything; I just haven't decided on a true path yet. I can say for certain that the story isn't going to evolve heavily into a romance, since that's not really what I'm going for at all. I'm going for something more... tragic, but also maintaining the things that people enjoyed in "It Came from Lucina's Head" like the humor and slice-of-life moments. And on that note, I'm not sure how much of Lucina's Head I want to tie into the story. Really, I'd like this story to be able to live and breathe on its own, but if people like me throwing references in then I guess there's no reason for me not to. Feel free to let me know what you think about this!
As always, the updates should be coming in once a week, but if I can't post anything for a certain week, be sure to check back here for more information!
So this week I went to the movies and saw... "Pixels!" In all honesty, I thought this movie was going to be a complete waste of time after seeing the trailers. I mean, I'm a retro video game fan and all, but I thought the story and actors were simply going to butcher this one. Well, it turns out I was wrong, since this movie completely overexceeded my expectations tenfold! I can't recall the last time I laughed so hard at a film! Both Adam Sandler and Kevin James do an outstanding job, but to me Josh Gad (voice of Olaf from "Frozen" if that sounds familiar) completely stole the show. The effectrs were great, the music was awesome, and the video games they brought to life were spectacular! There wasn't a single game character that I didn't recognize, and I was surprised to see several Nintendo faces appearing! I counted a total of four Smash Bros. characters making cameos in this movie... Can you guess them all? Long story short, this movie was great and I totally recommend it to anyone who is a fan of video games.
In story-related news...
-Meta Knight and the Infinite Sadness - New Story! I wanted to try something else borrowing the cast from It Came from Lucina's Head. I didn't want to just write another story about Lucina though, so I've decided to go along with everyone's favorite Star Warriorr... Meta Knight! (What, did you think I was gonna say Kirby?) Lucina is still a main character and she will definitely see character development, but Meta Knight is the one who will be enduring the most turmoil over the course of the story. I want to explore his origins much more and answer some of the questions a lot of people tend to have about him. Like, where did he come from? Who taught him how to fight? And why is he always wearing that mask?
-It Came from Lucina's Head - Three months after completion, the story has been officially revised for your enjoyment! I have gone back to every chapter fixing up spelling errors, adding or removing little details here and there to make this a class-A reading experience. Notable changes to the main plot include altering to the ultimate villain's motives, as well as some major modification to Falcon and Robin's conversation near the end of the story in order to give their conflicts better closure. There will likely not be any more changes to this story, which means I will finally be able to remove this from the list very soon (sometime this week probably). Thank you so much to everyone who tagged along for the ride from start to finish! I can't thank you enough for the amount of support I've received for this story, and if you haven't read it yet then I welcome you to take a peak and tell me what you think! Just make sure you don't read late at night or else you might find yourself waking up with a bad case of nightmares. ;)
-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 is really no direction with this story. Nevertheless, this story still needs to be complete before I can start a new one because I currently have too many ongoing stories. I don't want to be "that author" who just posts new stories nonstop without getting anything done. As far as progress, this story is about... halfway done I think? I don't really have an ending planned or anything, but I certainly know what I'm going to be doing with the next few chapters. I just need to get around to writing them is all.
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, programming, 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.
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.
Smash Bros. Mains: Ike, Captain Falcon.
Amiibos (with their respective names): Mario (Marisalami), Sheik (Pooka), Zelda (P. Diggy).
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 all 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 to 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!
