Author has written 14 stories for Super Smash Brothers, and Legend of Zelda.

Status: On indefinite hiatus after the ridiculous amount of words I squashed out in five days, right before New Years. smoke and mirrors will be updated whenever I feel like it ought to be (meaning: updates are slow but still being worked on!!)

About Lady Paprika

Selfish, know-it-all, mean and obnoxious. Everybody who knows her hates her, probably because she's just too fabulous for them.

She writes stories because she's like one of those people you see at a typewriter, bleeding all of their feels all over a keyboard at 2 AM in the morning. Except she never looks like hell and she doesn't have any feelings. (One, two, or all of what you've just read may be a lie.)

If you like bullet lists because they're fun and cool and shiny:

  • Twenty-two so that makes me really old and geezer-y
  • I need glasses or contacts. LASIK'd my eyes, so hopefully never again.
  • I identify with feminism and grrl power, and do not tolerate any form of injustice
  • Hipster. All my friends on here hate hipsters so they will say I am not, but I listen to Arcade Fire, The National and Phoenix so I mean yeah
  • Dangan Ronpa/Super Dangan Ronpa 2 is a huge part of me
  • So is Fire Emblem: Awakening
  • So is Bravely Default, if I ever finish it finished it, cried through it.
  • I'm brown - like literally brown, like look at my skin, it's brown (It's actually Indian.)
  • I'm Muslim in that, I wear scarves and will scream Arabic at you if you get too close, kind of way. (Nope.)
  • I do not understand Arabic.
  • I'm completely, ridiculously, absurdly boring.
  • Please be my friend except I also hate people so I don't know
  • I never use correct SPaG unless I write stories and essays and I apologize as all my sentences aside from stories and essays are complete run ons.
  • I'm mostly stupid, but I have my moments where I'll astonish myself in how brilliant really
  • I'm a kick-ass writer okay. (I act like I know it too and I do apologize for that bc I may come across as an asshole)
  • If you'd like more information I do have a tumblr: juniper-spicehead (Disclaimer: I am an annoying tumblr-er. A n00b too, so tread cautiously.)


    Disclaimer on all my reviews and yes, this is a rant too:

    Lately, I've been getting requests to review people's stories. Look, I'm going to be blunt - I criticize pretty harshly especially if somebody asks me for a review (Unless I don't have time to get into the nitty-gritty of it). I apologize in advance, but seriously do not come to me if you want to be mollycoddled. I will give you my honest opinion and even though I often do it with a friendlier attitude than say, flamers, I will leave a long review breaking down your story. I do this because I wish somebody would do the same to me. If you can't handle it - do not ask me.

    I review the following things - Characterization, storytelling, narration, as well as SPaG (Spelling, punctuation and grammar) and other miscellaneous stuff. I do not consider myself a grammar Nazi (Though I've been labeled as one more than once), but I expect people to have a grasp on the English language. If you do not and I tell you how to correct something, then don't whine about it. It's a story for heaven's sake and to write a story you need to know how to write in the first place. If you disregard it, that's fine. But honestly, getting butt hurt over something that you requested from me in the first place, is really not a mature attitude especially when I've taken the time out to review something that again, you have requested from me.

    So there you are. If you still want to request a review from me, then go ahead. I'm only too happy to oblige. Reviewing is a learning process to me just as much as writing is when it comes to telling a story.


    Status of My Ongoing Stories:

    Whodunit? - ON INDEFINITE HIATUS.

    Instinct - DELETED. WHY DOES EVERYTHING I TOUCH DIE. ._. Update: If you'd like to read the rest of the story, the lovely Kayire has volunteered to finish it so go to her! Thanks! X3

    The Life and Times of the Super Smash Sisterhood - To experiment with humor and stuff and girly things. If you want to see girly, fluffy, romantic, funny stuff then go here. I'll only update it when I feel like it. Strangely, this seems to be my most popular work and I have no idea why shut up.

    smoke and mirrors - If there's anything I'm gonna finish out of these stories, it will definitely be this story.


    Contest Placings

    (In order of when I entered or was nominated)

  • A Day in the Life of Peach (Now rewritten as The Life and Times of the Super Smash Sisterhood) - For Koopalingfan's Contest. Did not place.
  • The Bounty - For SuperSmashGirlBB's Bittersweet Contest. My first in first place, baby!
  • How Wolf O' Donnell of Star Wolf Saved Christmas - for MoD and Tune's Fireside Tales Contest. Second Place.
  • Green Gloves - For SSG3's as well as DaZeLinker's Songfic Contest. First place in DaZeLinker's Songfic, and did not place in SSG3's contest.
  • Vengeance and Retribution - For PitFTW and The Element Commander's Novelty contest. Second place.
  • rebirth - For Lyokolife6's Horror contest. Did not place.
  • I was nominated for my story asleep for The Review Lounge, Too's 2014 Reviewers Choice Award in the category Most Original Concept. To date, this is perhaps my most accomplished award, and I still feel that strange combination of astonished and flabbergasted for sharing first place.

  • Forums to Frequent

  • If your main fandom is Super Smash Brothers, currently the only active forum is Rancho de la Smash. A forum to just kick back, relax and get to know some pretty chill people (Warning: They are not chill, they will break you eventually so that you become just as crazy as they do!)
  • Interested on joining any contests in the Smash Brothers section but are unclear if any are available? A Little Too Contesty has archived most of the recent contests, as well as current ongoing ones. This isn't just for interested participants however - If you're interested in hosting a contest, this is a great place to advertise yours!
  • Want to improve writing? Get more reviews? Currently one of the most popular forums to date in Fanfiction is Reviews Lounge, Too, a great place that offers tips, games involving writin, and very kind people.
  • Cool Awful People because everybody and their moms has one of these lists

  • Loke Groundrunner - He likes Star Wars (evidenced by his pen name) He hates me though because I'm a hipster. Mysterious as the dark side of the moon.
  • Tune4Toons - My sworn rival in contests (she's winning. I may hate her for this) She may be a brilliant writer, but I'll never admit it. We may have harem'd each other. Who knows.
  • MessengerofDreams - He's not awful at all, I can't even pretend to hate him because it's hard. All I can do is bask in his glory and hope some of it rubs off on me. His username is very fitting.
  • TheWordMasterOfFiction - I can't say anything horrible about her either. She's brilliant and crazy and that makes me jealous but I can't hate her because she's too nice about it.
  • Archduke Langus - He's a little piece of shit and we have written things that will probably never see the light of day. He's as redneck as redneck gets and proudly flaunts it.
  • Starship Artisan - My main boo. We send each other noodz quite frequently and she tends to prattle on about Fire Emblem: Awakening. We're sworn enemies when it comes to Cards Against Humanity and our love is tragic because she's Canadian.
  • VocalFail - He has gr8 hair that puts mine to shame and he's an artist and it's like he says he's not talented but then like he does this thing where he beats you at like everything including his oh so obvious grammar skillz, some of which are gems.
  • hylian-nerd - We shared a bed once and ever since then, we've been harem'd. You know that friend who never studies or tries hard at school but still knows everything? That's hylian-nerd. I hate her for this.
  • The Stupendous Jimbo - My oldest friend on this site. I don't really need to elaborate on how much of an asshole this guy is, but I will say this: He is one of my dearest, oldest friends on here which is quite a feat, as I tend not to stick around for long.
  • (If I forgot to add anybody else, I'M SORRY.)

This may be her most challenging case yet when her haunting past with Marth comes up and it's all she can do to maintain her wits. But nobody said it would be easy. After all, a magician never reveals his secrets.

    Cafe de la Smash reviews
    [AU] Cafe of Smash is quite the strange cafe. There are no menus, and customers are served drinks or food based on their server's impression of them. And on a rare white Christmas Eve, it would seem that this place is a cesspool for its inhabitants to pursue different ideas of love. For Toon Link, he must learn the art of being selfish.

    This isn't only the story of one of the bloodiest revolutions. It's about love. Or maybe these two things are irrevocably entwined.

    The story of a man who, quite simply, didn't want to be God. He just wanted to be human. Too bad that's one thing a doctor will never get in his world. Part of CEObrainz's, "Everybody's Brawl." Re uploaded for no good reason. Personal gain, maybe? Rated for heavy themes.
