Ello. This would be my profile dedicated wholly to video games, & by that, I mean expect mostly Legend of Zelda-related paraphernalia (...and by that I mean expect mostly Link/Zelda-related paraphernalia). :)

I love being anonymous, so just call me whatever you like.

I only have a Wii, Gamecube, Gameboy Color, Gameboy SP, 3DS, and Wii U as far as gaming systems go, which is why my fandoms are all Nintendo-related.

Happy reading!

War of the Heart Stuff:

This fic is my "magnum opus" of fanfiction, so I hope you like it. I've had the idea for a while, and the backdrop of Hyrule Warriors fits it perfectly!

If you're as invested and like music as much as I do, I made a few Spotify playlists to accompany the themes of the story! There's one for Zelda's character, for angst, for love, and even for the baddies in the story.

*Legend of Zelda

I became fascinated with LoZ ever since my brothers & I got Super Smash Bros. Melee for our Gamecube (I was a 6th/7th grader at the time) & I have literally been shipping Link/Zelda as a result ever since. The Legend of Zelda is easily my favorite video game series & I'm always up to trying a new game for them when possible or exploring the fandom.
