Author has written 1 story for Legend of Zelda, and Soul Calibur.
Just a guy who loves video games. Whether it's playing, writing stories for or developing them! Primarily a 'Nintendoid', but have been known to dabble with the other companies now and then.
I discovered this website in around 2008 and after reading a couple of stories, decided to try my hand at writing one myself.
I imagine I have a bit of a weird system when it comes to uploading compared to other authors: I'd sit down and write, and once a chapter's done I'll go on to do the next one without uploading the finished one. I like to have a proper read-through of it beforehand and find I catch more mistakes after taking some time away. Thus I go off, write the next one in the meantime and once that's done I then go back to the old chapter for editing. So that means whenever I upload, I actually have the next chapter written! I've only broken this once (so far) as I'd left a chapter on a cliffhanger, but life was pretty hectic and I knew spare time would be scarce so I went ahead and bent the rules (temporarily).
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - surprise, surprise!
Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Super Mario Galaxy
Metroid Prime Trilogy - don't ask me to choose one over the other!
The Dark Knight
Spider-Man 2 (seeing a pattern emerging here?)
The Iron Giant - such an underrated classic...
Favourite Film Series
Kung Fu Panda - never would've imagined that a series of films starring Jack Black (no offense) as a bit of an idiotic panda who learns kung fu would be so awesome!!
Back to the Future - including the game by Telltale, which me and friends/family who've played it refer to as 'Back to the Future Part IV'.
Star Wars - original trilogy (duh) and Episode VII.
Marvel Cinematic Universe - every time I hear about a new one I think 'surely this is gonna be terrible', but then time after time I'm proven wrong!
Favourite TV Series
I'm not really a big watcher of TV series, so this is more a list of 'things I have watched and would happily watch again':
Agatha Christie's Poirot
Dragon Ball Z
Spider-Man: The Animated Series
Batman: The Animated Series (and the DC Animated Universe in general)
Pokémon (the first series)
Thunderbirds (both old puppet show and new CGI series)
I used to watch Doctor Who during Matt Smith's time in the role, but only really enjoyed the fifth series and the 50th anniversary special. The rest I can take or leave. Kinda stopped watching altogether after a couple of episodes when Peter Capaldi came in - nothing against the actor (seen him in other things and thought he was brilliant), just lost interest after that...
Not sure if it's a good idea to have this, but I suppose it uses up Profile space so I'll give it a try.
Two Shades of Green
A Legend of Zelda/Soulcalibur crossover story that I like to see as a continuation of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, as well as a conclusion to the Soulcalibur series. From the Zelda series' perspective, it takes place eight years after Ocarina of Time and seven years after Majora's Mask (see the next section for Link's age). For the Soulcalibur series, it's right at the very beginning of Soulcalibur IV (so roughly six months after Soulcalibur II).
As a side note, the Link in this story might be a little different from the one in your heads. I based his personality and dilemmas off an article written by HylianDan on Zelda Universe called 'Immortal Childhood', which basically puts forward some theories that Link's Awakening, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Wind Waker are stories of growing up. It's a fantastic read and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who's played any of those games! Give it a Google search when you've got some spare time.
Differences in TSoG from Legend of Zelda canon
Decided to include this for anyone who cares enough to get confused between my interpretation and what's been proven in Hyrule Historia (since the book was released after I started publishing TSoG).
Gap between OoT and MM: There was about a year's gap between the two games, rather than a handful of months.
Link's age: In my story Link is 20, meaning he was 12 in Ocarina of Time and 13 in Majora's Mask. Not 9 or 10. To me when I was growing up, Link's dilemmas in both games reflect the teenage bracket, not childhood.
What happened to Ganondorf in Child Link timeline: Twilight Princess deals with this but because I didn't understand this until after Hyrule Historia was published, I have accounted for this. So, my story assumes that once Link is returned to his original timeline, he immediately seals Ganondorf away before any damage is done. Only Link and the Sages have memories of the Adult timeline, so they know their limits whereas Ganondorf doesn't, meaning he is easily overpowered. The scene where child Link approaches Princess Zelda is where he returns the Ocarina of Time to her (he gave it to her in the future, so he should still have it in the past).
Which Zelda games are counted: Only three Zelda games are going to be referred to: Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Skyward Sword. They're the only ones that a) fit together with little-to-no holes, and b) are relevant. This means Twilight Princess won't come in to play.
