Author has written 14 stories for Legend of Zelda, Steven Universe, and Gravity Falls.
Hi all! I'm the fanfic writer currently known as MiniJen and welcome to my lovely little profile! Just to give you a little background info about me, I adore cats, video games, music, drawing, swimming, FOOD, and most of all WRITING!! Which, in essence, is why I am here in the first place! So, journey with me for a spell, as we venture into the most comprehensive list of all of the many things that I love!
Back in about 2011, I happened about this beautiful website and discovered the joys of reading and writing fanfiction. It started small, with poor, unfounded, badly written stories, but writing fanfiction has truly helped me cultivate my craft into ways I never thought possible and because of it, writing is my passion, my pride and my joy! And so I partake of the beauty that is writing as much as I can, for the ideas in my mind flow forth like a mighty rushing river! Haha!
So, let's take a little time to get to know more about me, shall we? At this current point in my life, my largest obsessions lie in animated shows (a college sophmore obsessed with kids shows? huh?), namely my favorite show ever, Gravity Falls! While it is over, will always hold such a high place in my heart for its characters, mystery, humor, drama, and more! Steven Universe comes in a very close second though, followed not too far behind by Over the Garden Wall, Star Vs. the Forces of Evil, and Miraculous Ladybug. I also really adore Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra!
I also really adore video games! I love anything Nintendo really, maintaining a founded interest in both the Mario and Metroid series. :D But my biggest love (any perhaps my most favorite fandom) is the Legend of Zelda!!! I find it to be such an incredible series, set in such a rich world with amazing characters that most of my stories are Zelda fics. I adore everything about it, so if you find me obsessing over it like a little nerd girl, don't blame me, for it is where my heart belongs!
My favorite novel series is the Hunger Games Trilogy. It was shortly after discovering the Hunger Games that I started writing frequently, so maybe you can attribute something to that. I don't really know. I'm also a big fan of the Divergent Trilogy (which, for the record is NOT just a retread of the Hunger Games), also another extremely well written series (but Allegiant tore my heart to pieces, just saying). And of course, I am also obsessed with the tragic, yet simple love story that is the Fault In Our Stars!!!
So now, allow me to entertain you with some top five lists pertaining to all of my many different fandoms, just so you'll see what I think the best of the best is! Let us begin with...

And that's just about it for the lists, but I'll leave you with two more, mostly fanfic based ones, to show you more about the stuff that I am into writing/reading:
My top five writing genres: 1. Angst 2. Romance 3. Drama 4. Tragedy 5. Adventure
In case you're wondering about more specifics as to the kind of stuff I do write, allow me to inform you about the stuff I generally don't write/read. I don't particularly like squicks or hyperrealistic descriptions of violence, nor do I really like non-canon (or even canon) ships that involve abuse, young/old, incest, oversexualization, or things like that. I'm also not a huge fan of OCs (sorry if you have one, they're just not really my thing in fanfics), which is why I try to stick with canon characters only in my fics.
Now for a little more of my own specific works. At the moment, most of my active projects are Zelda-based due to my slight obsession with it, so those are the ones you'll find me updating the most. Angst is my main fare, so don't be surprised if you find a lot of it in any of my stories. I enjoy writing romance (especially ZeLink shipping, though I'm also fond of MaLink and IlLink) and I'm a big drama writer. Comedy is not my strong suit to write, but its fun to read as is poetry and other categories. I am stretching my hand into writing for other fandoms, such as my crossover between Steven Universe and Gravity Falls, and I do hope to do more with both of those fandoms in the future at some point :D
So that's just about it for my little profile thingy. Now you know me and my loves a little better! Until next time!!!(that's my trademark sign off, DON"T STEAL IT!!!!) :D

Projects (Just to keep myself on track really, but also so my readers will know which stories are on hiatus and which ones I'm currently working on...
Very Active Stories:
AKA my highest priorities!
-Light and Shadow: My baby! But of course Light and Shadow is at the top of my list, right after finishing W&C! I am so freaking excited for it and I already have LOT of it planned up! (all the way to the climax and then some). Hooray for actually having a plan for once!!! :D
-Hyrule Warriors: Born out of a desire to write something based on my new favorite game of the same title. Since its a novelization, I think it will be fairly easy to write, but of course I plan on doing it in the style of my trilogy, so it will be a tad darker, and I will be adding some extensive stuff for both length and filling in all of the plot holes (plus giving more back stories and stuff like that!)
-Universe Falls: Ok so I'm striving for regular updates on this one, though its a little hard since the chapters are SUPER long. But still, I have a definative plan for it and I will get it done, mostly because I have so many ideas for it!
Semi-Active Stories: Basically, stories that are at the forefront of my mind, but are being stalled thanks to writer's block or other things :/
-Twisted Fates-I'm officially proclaiming this as active once more, after more than a year of not working on it! I have plans for it, and I have been writing bits and pieces of it, so here's hoping I can return to it in conjunction with Hyrule Warriors and Light and Shadow!
-Bound Destinies Side Stories-Brand new at the moment. This is mostly going to be a laid back, side project sort of thing, that I will work on whenever I want to or when I'm having a hard time working on the actual trilogy. So don't expect me to have a regular schedule on this one. Its mostly going to be pretty loose so... yeah...
-Between Heaven and Hell: On hiatus so I can return to writing Twisted Fates. I will pick this one back up again, but I feel like I've been away from Twisted Fates for far too long, plus I also have L&S and HW to worry about. Sorry!
Stories Currently On Hiatus: Projects I plan on returning to eventually, but can't because of other, more important ideas in the way
-We Are the Crystal Gems: On hiatus for probably a long time, mostly because a lot of my ideas and headcanons for it were shot down by information recently revealed in SU, plus my work on Universe Falls. But I do hope to return to it eventually!
-I'll see you again-I will finish this sometime! One of the first Zelda stories I ever wrote, this one is a bit rough in some parts, but over all a good story that i want to finish eventually. Thing is i keep getting distracted by other stories. I'm actually pretty close to being done with this one, but that writer's block is like the plague... :(
-The Princess of Darkness-Hiatus. I don't know how long it will be for, but with my trilogy and writer's block pulling me away from it, I have no idea what to do with it. I will finish it hopefully someday... but I have no idea when... :/
Finished Stories: Self explanatory
-Blood and Spirit: Perhaps the greatest story I have written so far, it took en entire year for me to finish this one, but now I am happy to say that it is finally complete!!! And now that it is, I have time to finish Wisdom and Courage and begin Light and Shadow!!! :D
-Wisdom and Courage: At long last the edits for this one are finished, which has me so excited, as it means I can devote more attention to L&S and HW! And so, I implore you to enjoy it for all its worth!
-Forever: Just a little oneshot I wipped up based on a tearkerking pic drawn by tumblr user sagesins. Took me about an evening to write, and I figured that it would work best as a oneshot. Yay!
-The Legend of Hyrule-Finished. I kinda feel awkward about this one now that Hyrule Historia is out, cause its so identical to it, but I'm glad I got to complete it nonetheless!
-Zelda's Journey-Finished... kinda. I finished the overall story told through Zelda's point of view, but then i decided to rewrite it through Link's POV as well, but I completely ran out of ideas in the middle of that. So its kinda on hiatus, though i really wouldn't say that since its done in one form. So i don't know if i'll get back to this one. If i do, i do. if i don't, i dont. cry me a river.
And for the heck of it, here are my top five best stories that i've written (in my own personal opinion): 1. Blood and Spirit 2. Light and Shadow 3. Universe Falls 4. Hyrule Warriors 5. Wisdom and Courage
Things I want to do in the future:
Unnamed Miraculous Ladybug fic: Yeah, I don't have a title for this one yet, but I do have a concept! It goes a little something like this: After having countless akumas fail him, Hawk Moth decides to take matters into his own hands to get the miraculouses. He lures Ladybug and Chat Noir into a deadly trap and, against all odds, manages to claim both of their miraculouses, revealing their true identities to all of Paris. Confused and powerless, Marinette and Adrien find themselves on the run from Hawk Moth, the press, and even their own friends and family, who either have been akumatized, or shun them for their ousted secrets. In a world of unfolding chaos, the former partners find that they are the only ones they can trust in a city with no heroes. So yeah, rough plot outline, but I do have some solid concepts here, and its something I really wanna do, especially since it will be very heavy on the Adrienette! But chances are, this probably won't get started until Universe Falls has more chapters. Yeah.
Skyward Sword Novelization: Definitely gonna happen as its in the planning stages now, but of course its not going to happen until after Hyrule Warriors is done, at least.
The Legend of the Avatar: Out of my love for both the Legend of Zelda and Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra, I have decided to write an epic crossover between the two of them (even if I don't really do crossovers, but whatever) What this basically will be is Zelda characters living within the world of Avatar (though I don't think any ATLA/LoK characters will show up), complete with similar lore (though tailored to the Zelda series), bending, cultures, and more! The four nations will still be present, but they will be filled with the various tribes of Hyrule (for example, I plan on having the Fire Nation citizens be made up of partially Gerudo, Twili, some humans and a few other races, the Air Nomads will be mostly Sheikah, Rito, Minish, and Koroks, the Water Tribes will be composed of Hylians (north) and Zoras (south) and the Earth Kingdom will consist of Hylians, Gorons, Kokiri and a few others). Characters from a ton of different games will come together, and so its sorta like Hyrule Warriors in that reguard, except for its all in the same era. Of course, the whole concept of the Avatar will still be in place, and you'll never guess who will fill that role here... (JK, its totally gonna be Link though). I figured that Link would be best suited to be from the Earth Kingdom (cause Farore and her affinity for earth, nature, ect) and his equivalent of the Gaang or Krew will compose of Princess Zelda of the Northern Water Tribe, Midna, the deposed heir to the Fire Nation throne, Tetra, the nonbending pirate captain, Impa, an air nomad from the southern air temple, and a few others maybe... The story will be all of them traveling around the world (like the Gaang) and trying to free the Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation from the grip of Ganondorf, who usurped the title of Fire Lord years ago and has ruled as tyrant ever since. This story is going to have pretty much everything in it: drama, humor, angst, tragedy, TONS of action, lore, and everything else you can think of. I'm unsure of when I'll start it, but know that its certainly in its planning stages, so look out for it soon! :D
Hilda of Lorule: Because Hilda is my favorite new Zelda character, I decided that I want to write something about her, and so I recently got the idea to write the events preceding and during A Link Between Worlds in her point of view. Of course, this will be first person, and it will detail how Hlida came up with her desperate plan and centering on her as she carried it out, along with the true nature of the relationship between her and Ravio (and yes, there will be some light Hilda/Ravio shipping here ;), how her and Yuga started working together in their deceptive plans, how Hlida learned of Hyrule and its Triforce, and her thoughts as she guides Link along on his adventure. So basically, this one will be a big one, and I have to say that I really want to write it, but it will at least have to be put off until Blood and Spirit is done, possibly even Light and Shadow. its hard to say, but I'm doing it!!!! :D
Writing Itinerary (for now):
These are my current and future projects that I have concrete plans of when I think they're going to get started. The ones at the top are stories that I plan on finishing first, and then on as we go down.
1. Light and Shadow (in progress)
2. Hyrule Warriors (in progress)
3. Universe Falls (in progress)
3. Miraculous Ladybug fic
3. Between Heaven and Hell (in progress, may be put on hiatus for a while)
4. Twisted Fates (on hiatus, but I WILL return to it)
5. Skyward Sword novelization (interchangable with BDSS)
5. Bound Destinies Side Stories (interval thing really, so I dont have a set place for ever really finishing it, though I will work on it when inspiration comes)
6. The Sheikah King (as I actually have more ideas for it than I do the B&S sequels)
7. The Hero's Shade (will be short and easy to get out there)
8. Peacekeeper (again, a lot of ideas for)
10. Legend of the Avatar (maybe)
11. Strings of Fate
12. The Gerudo War
13. Civil Wars
14. Who knows? ;D
Universe Falls Arcs: Ok, so just because I'm fueled on Universe Falls currently, I decided to explain a little more here about how its set up so I wont have to do so in the story itself. For those of you who don't know, I plan on having UF be a combination of the plots of both Steven Universe and Gravity Falls, specifically merging major plot points together in creative, unique, and dramatic ways! Universe Falls is broken up into several "arcs", each about ten chapters long (and each chapter usually based around one or two (or a combination) of episodes from either show). At the end of each chapter there is an "arc ender" which will be split into two parts and will usually be a really big episode of either GF or SU (as outlined below), and then there will be usually about one or two bonus chapters after each arc ender. So yeah, UF is going to be pretty hefty, but it already has a surprisingly large following, which absolutely delights me! And so, here are the titles for all of the arcs I have planned out so far. You can probably guess, based on these titles, what each arc ender is going to be for these, so take the information as you will!
Arc 1: Magic and Mystery
Sequels to the BDT
So I have decided that since I love the ideas and concepts of the Bound Destinies trilogy so much, I plan on writing at least one (or two!) sequels for each one of them, in order to tie them together better and for the purposes of lore and stuff. And so, while I'm not going to reveal a whole lot here, I will divulge some rough ideas I have, though none of this is getting written until after the trilogy is 100% done, so keep that in mind! Alrighty! So...
Like I said, I'm really excited about the Bound Destinies Trilogy as a whole and I really hope it gets a lot of loyal readers. I can't wait to see it in its full, finished glory!!!
So that's it with my many stories and this long winded profile for now! until next time! :D
Love, MiniJen :)
