Author has written 4 stories for Legend of Zelda.

About Me:

For starters, I'm including this "about me" section mostly so you understand why I update as seldomly as I do.

I'm a college student, graduating this spring with a B.S. in geophysical engineering, but am taking 18 upper division and graduate credit hours to graduate in time. Additionally, I work for the state Geological Survey, am actively doing research and field studies, and am participating in independent studies.

Moral of the story: There will be time spans, sometimes up to two months long, where I get nothing done on my stories because I've got so much else going on.

I'm sorry for that, but thanks for understanding. I wish I had more time to write!

Anyway, enjoy what I've written thus far! And don't forget to review!!

My Stories:

Fused Kingdoms: (In Progress) A post-TP, LinkxMidna fic. Link tries to find purpose in his life after the events of Twilight Princess, but hears that his nemesis, Ganondorf, managed to survive their last encounter. Can Link overcome his demons and defeat the King of Evil by himself? SPOILER ALERT: No.

Simple Miscalculation: (Completed. Maybe. I keep changing my mind on what I want to do with this one.) Two one-shots that are barely related, both LinkxMidna, though nothing overly romantic in either.

Crack Playthrough: (Pretty much in the same boat as Simple Miscalculation) I'm slowly playing through the game, bit by bit, writing a first-person narrative centered around Link, but I've given him something of a sarcastic personality...

Royal Screw Up: (completed) OoT, One shot. Link meets up with Sheik after completing the Spirit Temple. Inside the sanctuary of the Temple of time, he rests, and opens up to Sheik about how he feels about Princess Zelda. Awkwardness ensues.

You may notice another story I once had the first few chapters for up, Archipelago, has disappeared. I really liked the secular/non-magical world I developed for that story (the magic in Fused Kingdoms is my biggest qualm with that story), but i couldn't think of an appropriate plot. maybe one day I'll think of a good plot and resume working on it.

So, though it may look like I'm an obsessive LinkxMidna fan, I'm actually a bigger fan of LinkxSaria, but there is so much more room to work with a romantic sub-plot when Minda is involved rather than Saria.

Ideas for other stories I probably will never write

SariaxLink brainstorming:

I have a pretty good (and in my opinion, kind of obvious) solution to the Link/Saria age problem: Sure, the Kokiri die when they exit the forest, but How? Why? What if they just become mortal when they leave the forest? Then they'd still die, just not immediately (although, compared to the immortal life of a kokiri, the life span of a mortal is still pretty short. So Link comes back to the the forest after being sent back in time, and Link and Saria both express remorse that they will have to live forever apart. Then, the Deku Tree tells them that if Saria leaves the forest, she will surely die, but by becoming a mortal, and it's an irreversible change, and a decision that should not be made quickly or lightly. As Saria dwells on this matter, the Deku Tree sends Link to Termina to find Navi. Then, two years later, Link comes back, and Saria has made her decision to be a mortal with Link. Unfortunately, I have neither the time to start another story and stick with it, nor have I thought of an actual plot line to make it a legitimate story rather than just a one-shot or two-shot (not that there's anything wrong with one-shots).

Important MidLink Moment:

I have another great idea for another one-to-two shot about a critical time between Link and Midna, but, very surprisingly, I am yet to see another person write about this moment. I mean, one moment, Midna is resurrected in her true form, Link standing before her. The next time you see her, she's at the mirror, seconds away from saying good-bye forever. There is a gap of time between those two moments, and I wanna know what happened. Surely Link took a few days off to recuperate, and surely Midna was around. They must have talked. But what about?

An OoT, AU Story:

Take that bit in OoT where they say there was this big unification war between all the races, during which Link's terminal mother sneaks him into the forest. Ten years later, the races are at peace with each other as Link sets out. Yeah right. There would be an array of violence still occurring with the different races, or at least a lot of diplomatic tensions that could be exploited by Ganondorf. This opens up a lot of ground for another story...

A 10-year-old boy, practically a foreigner to the vast country of Hyrule, one day finds himself with a secret quest given to him by the Princess of Hyrule. He must travel between regions inhabited by tribes still bitter about the so-called "Unification War", and secretly, they all contemplate conquering the lands for themselves. While the King of Hyrule tries to quell any uprising, secretly, Ganondorf, the leader of the Gerudo, further instigates the tension between the races. Unexpectedly to Link, he finds himself thrust into adulthood, seven years later, and witnesses the destruction that was Hyrule. As he travels the country, he begins to put the history together: Ganondorf succeeded in instigating a war between all the races but his own. Once all the regions of Hyrule were weakened, he and the Gerudo moved in and conquered everything.

I would really love to work on that story... maybe I can use this plot with the world and characterizations from Archipelago. Though, then I'd have to rewrite Midna's part to fit Saria... or make it really AU and keep Midna... Replace the Gerudo with Dark Interlopers/Twili... Suddenly I wish I had the time to tackle another large story
