If you guys missed episode 3 of Fanfic Breakdown, here's a link so you can catch up! I'm a little slow plugging this since there was no episode last week, BUT the next one should be coming out soon. I hope you're all enjoying the series so far and if you have any questions then feel free to shoot me a line.
I've been playing a lot of Fire Emblem Fates lately, still pushing through the Conquest Hard Mode (Classic aayyy) and still looking at suggestive pictures of Overwatch characters on the internet. Yes I'm still gushing over that game, but it has to wait because Fire Emblem! I'm doing an all mounted run right now, and by that, I mean that all of my units are on horses (with the exception of Kaze who rides one of those weird-ass lion robot things). Would you believe that Kaze is the only one of my units that ISN'T weak to Beast Killers? Chapter 19 (the one with Kaden) was a living nightmare for my team and I still can't believe I managed to beat it. I'm somewhere around chapter 22 now I believe, but the game sure as hell ain't getting any easier. Thankfully, Dark Knight Camilla is just plowing through waves of enemies on her own, but I'm trying to get some marriages down to fill some extra slots. Let's just say that Gunter isn't quite as strong as I thought he was (he has 6 resistance as a level 23 Great Knight, Gunter plz). Overall, my first theme team has been quite successful and pretty fun (with some minor exceptions in dumb chapters). I don't know if I'll ever do it again though since the novelty wears off once you're halfway through the game and every other unit is carrying Beast Killers or some form of Armorslayer. If I manage to defeat the final boss without losing anyone, I'll honestly be surprised.
Some of you may have noticed a new story by me, and for Fire Emblem no less! It's a one-shot starring Felicia, dedicated to r/WeGotTrouble on Reddit and all the losers that frequent it (including me, hurhur). I don't know, I've been wanting to branch out a little more since Fates has so many great characters to write about, but fret dear friends, for Super Smash Bros. will always be my true home. I'm just taking a step into another world briefly in order to exercise my creative mind. This week has been hella busy for me between work and school, so I'm just relieved to finally get something posted after two weeks of nothing. Be on the lookout for the next episode in the Youtube series, and stay tuned for my next update on whatever Smash Bros. story happens to suit my fancy. Peace out, and stay manly!
In story-related news...
-I've posted a new story, Popstar Comics, which is really my first real attempt at a serious AU story. Without giving too much away, the story is about Dark Pit, who, having lived a life on the streets, is forced to work a regular job at his local comic book store. See, he's having a bit of an internal struggle, trying to discover his purpose in life without being overshadowed by his twin brother Pit. He wants to make a name for himself, and the only way he knows how is to do the opposite of everything Pit does. And since Pit is the stereotypical good guy, Dark Pit feels the need to play the bad guy in their relationship. Not that he is a bad guy. In fact, Dark Pit has made quite the reputation for himself already, and there are many folks who recognize him both as a friendly and menacing face. He decides to stick with the job for a little while if only to keep Pit off his back, but there's no way in hell he plans on sticking around. Or does he?...
-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.

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 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.
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 just all-around awesome people, this is a section dedicated to the wonderful friends I have had the pleasure of meeting on this site.
-AuraChannelerChris - Awesome author and equally awesome guy in general. He really knows his stuff and I respect him for the amount of time and dedication he's put in to his main mega story. He has a real passion for what he does and can be serious at times, but I admire him for integrating his own original ideas with canon plot lines. He's also very dependable when it comes to advice on writing.
-Circuit's Dead - Fun, charismatic, and charming, Circuit's Dead is probably one of the most underrated author's I've come to know. His stories are creative, enticing, and not to mention filled to the brim with references from tv shows and video games. Anyone who is a fan of humor or adventure should definitely check him out, and he also does a nice job at character development. You know, that thing that almost half of all fanfiction authors tend to disregard in their stories?
-LegitElizabethWWEFan - She's sweet, and her stories are simply captivating. Ellie is known for the work she does in incorporating stories with music, drawing relations between plots and songs, and you know what? It works! Not to mention, she can be daring when it comes to pairings, being gifted with the ability to write sexy, tragic, or hell even funny love scenes. She's one of a kind and her stories are always a pleasure to read. Tread carefully though because she tends to shuffle between T and M rated stories!
-Light My Crazy Diamond - Anyone who is a fan of the Doors and Pink Floyd is a-okay in my book, and Light My Crazy Diamond is no exception. Not only is he an honest and caring person, but he is also a very talented writer with a lot of passion for what he does. He's so good at what he does in fact, that one of his stories I believe has the potential for being one of the greatest Super Smash Bros. fanfictions of all time! One thing that he is especially good at when it comes to writing is creating a cast of colorful characters that are not only relatable, but also play off of one another in a way that leads to some very interesting and hilarious interactions. He tries his best to keep things canon, which to me takes a lot of skill since Smash isn't exactly a series known for playing by the rules. I applaud thine efforts LMCD, and I highly recommend any readers to check his stories out if you're looking for something new or fresh!
-Lizardon the Dragon - This dude's a weirdo who has a strange obsession with Charizard. But in all seriousness, he's hella cool and his stories are simply amazing. He does an excellent job at capturing and portraying character personalities, as well as their interactions with one another. If you're someone looking for stories where Smash Bros. characters talk, fight, or solve kooky mysteries, this is one author I highly recommend. He's also fun to talk to and can give some good advice if need be.
-MahNati - Mah, Mah, Mah, where do I start with her? For one thing, she's probably my oldest friend on this site. Even now I'm still surprised to see her active since most of the people who I talked to back in the day have either closed shop and left town or found better things to do with their time. Not us though. MahNati is simply lovely, funny, and a blast to chat with. She's also an amazing author, being one of those authors who just love experimenting with different pairings. Funny enough, her pairings are always convincing, and she's mainly the reason why I even like shipping Palutena with Samus or Robin with his female counterpart. If you like romance, give her stories a shot. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
-Paradigm of Writing - Of all the authors I've come to know in my hobby as a writer, Paradigm of Writing is without a doubt the one who has the most potential. Seriously man, why are you dabbling around here instead of publishing your own original work? The guy's a genius, a madman, and by far one of the most ambitious authors I've ever met. He primarily writes AU stuff, although he's also not afraid to step outside of the Smash fandom unlike yours truly. You can tell that he has a real passion for what he does though, as well as a passion for video games and movies. I feel blessed to have met such an extraordinary person, and I wish to you Paradigm all the best in your career and whatever the future may bring you.
-pokemonrhoades - A cool dude who I am thankful for as an author who struggled to understand the story of Fire Emblem: Awakening. When I was writing It Came from Lucina's Head, this guy was a huge help for me in understanding not only the characters but the absurd plot of the game (come on, time travel? That shiz be cray). He's a tried and true Fire Emblem fan, and I know that if I have any questions pertaining to Awakening or Fates, he'd be there to fill me in right away.
-Souldin - Wonderful Souldin is another one of those old friends who has moved on to better things, but pokes his head in the archives every now and then to see what's going on. He's currently heading his own Youtube channel, which I have no problem plugging right here for anyone interested. Besides this, he's probably the best reviewer I've ever come to know, being open to every and all ideas yet at the same time critical on things he feels could be improved. Basically, I wouldn't be half the author I am today if not for his reviews to help carve the path. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything Souldin. And I wish you all the best wherever the wind may take you.

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!
