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:
Pear0dee - Captain Falcon's Lady Quest
After Captain Falcon fails to get a date yet again, he decides to enlist the help of the other Smash residents. Will they actually help him? Will Captain Falcon finally get the girlfriend he is desperately hoping for? Is this not one of the most overused ideas for a story based on Captain Falcon in Super Smash Bros.? Well yes it is but there is a reason for it, and that is because it just works!
I've updated another chapter of "Palutena's Farting Dilemma," aka the story that I never talk about on here. I don't even link it as one of my ongoing stories, and for good reason. It's just a weird story. Nevermind the fact that it's parodying one of the craziest ideas that has ever been around since the dawn of Smash fanfiction thanks to a certain someone. I don't update this one very often because I need to get into a certain mindset when I write it. It's written in a style that's takes an immature subject and tries to play it off as something super serious, as well as adding various fourth-wall-breaking references and whatnot, which is admittedly something I like to do from time to time. I don't know if the story will ever be complete, but the reception from it has been mostly positive (go figure on that). I'll try to update it every now and then, but it's kind of on the back-end as far as priority goes.
Speaking about priority, I'm focusing on finishing up "Banana Babe Beach Blast" by the end of September. From there, I've got an idea for a Halloween fic that I'd like to try out. After that, I'm going to try and revisit writing a serious story since most of the stories I've been writing lately have just been comedies. It's not that I enjoy writing Humors more, it's just that they're easier to write. I can make up jokes on the fly and the story doesn't have to make sense. When I write something serious however, a lot of planning usually goes into it, so it typically takes more time out of my limited writing schedule than normal.
As for random life events, I've been playing the Fire Emblem GBA games. I actually beat Sacred Stones last week, and I'm starting a new game again! My unpopular opinion is that I like Sacred Stones more than Blazing Sword, and this is only because of the characters. Don't get me wrong, Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector are amazing, but I'm talking about the majority of the cast in general. I also like the world map thing that Sacred Stones does, much like how Fire Emblem Awakening plays out. I've officially gotten better at the game after all this practice, and this is just a setup for when Fire Emblem Fates gets released in the west. Can you guess which version I'll be picking up? (Hint: It's the version that has the better waifus. Because apparently that's the only reason for picking up Fire Emblem games nowadays. Who needs tactical strategy games when you can play dress-up with miniaturized cutesy characters? We Pokemon now?).
In story-related news...
-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, Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones.
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!
