Author has written 37 stories for Avatar: Last Airbender, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Pokémon, Legend of Zelda, Avengers, Rise of the Guardians, Doctor Who, How to Train Your Dragon, Mario, and Kirby.
... That job ended. In August 2014. I'm just now updating this piece of my profile in February of 2015. Tells you exactly how fun last semester was, doesn't it? I blame Calculus. Spent six hours trying to do these whacked out problems every time I sat down to do homework.
I may or may not update much this semester. Currently in my "bouncing around fandoms" stage, which means I'm not particularly inclined to do any writing at all.
Secondary Warning: The following profile contains some language, and I do apologize if you find it offensive, but I will not change my profile unless Fanfiction.net says I have to. Thank you.
Name: You can call me by a lot of names, but I'd prefer it if you used some form of "Zorua Illusion" (ex.- Zorua, Illusion, Ms. Zorua, etc. Initials are fine as well). You can also call me Anaconda, if you wish.
Gender: Female. But I'm very tomboy-ish.
Likes: A lot of things. Tumblr and Fanfiction especially. Happy endings.
Dislikes: Jerks, drama queens/kings. Violent/protesting homophobes. Rapists. Sad endings.
Let's get this straight: I'm atheist. I don't care about what your religion is, I will treat you as a human being. Worship your dog for all I care. But do not, I repeat, DO NOT shove your religion down other's throats. Don't try to insert religion into laws, because there's this thing called "separation of Church and state". Don't force someone to adhere to your beliefs. Preach your religion to the public, go ahead. I commend your bravery for speaking in front of people. Just don't force it upon them. We clear?
Fandoms: Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, Hunger Games, Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Heroes of Olympus, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Inheritance Cycle, Avengers, Rise of the Guardians, How to Train Your Dragon, Brave, Tangled (Big Four Crossovers are pretty cool), Supernatural (to an extent), Disney (because that should totally be counted as a fandom), Kingdom Hearts, Diablo (2 and 3)
Motto: Consent= presence of a "yes", not absence of a "no".
Less serious motto: If you're going to do something, make sure your apple pie is freaking worth it.
In Loving Memory Of Lyralocke, passed away May 2010. Thank you for sharing your stories with us.
In case I don't say it in any chapter of any of my stories, I own nothing except my OCs, and everything you recognize belongs to their respective owner(s).
Falling in Love In Avatar Land:
It took forever, but finally, 33 chapters later, FiLiAL is complete! Thanks to all those who reviewed, and shout out to the following: TechnoGirl317, without whom this story would probably still be in progress, and Irish Lover Girl for listening to my rants. Also to my friend who isn't on here for listening to my rants and giving me feeback.
Summary: Zarla and her best friend Adam get transported to the Avatar world under mysterious circumstances. They both secretly love each other... will they figure out their feelings in the middle of a war-torn world? Has some swearing, and includes Spanish.
Another Kataang Anastasia:
Status: Complete! (Finally)
Sorry it took so long, and if the last chapter's shoddy. It's dedicated to SokkasFirstFangirl, the author of Kataang Anastasia. Check out her story as well! And I do apologize for the extremely spoardic updates...
Summary: Another Kataang Anastasia story, based off of SokkasFisrtFangirl's Kataang Anastasia. Benders are included in this story.
Zoroark's Side of Things:
Not my best piece of work. I feel like I was ten when I wrote it, which might not be so far from the truth. I can't believe how many people actually liked it. Sequel and remake in the process, the latter will be up after I finish my Avatar stories.
Summary: Based off of Cartoon Network's Zoroark: Master of Illusions, this story is of Zoroark's thoughts throughout the movie. Sequel and remake in progress.
Honestly, it has far too many typos. "Tie" instead of "Time" for instance. So, yeah, sorry about that. Otherwise, thanks to Volvagia on YouTube for the Skyward Sword Walkthrough from which I got the dialogue.
Summary: What I thought Link's thoughts might be while Zelda's explaining things. Has a curse in it.
My first songfic, song being Avril Lavigne's "Tomorrow". One of my favorites. Has some typos.
Summary: What Annabeth might've felt like while Percy was missing in Son of Neptune.
Phil Coulson's Funeral and Related Side Stories
This is my tribute to Agent Phil Coulson. OC and OOC alert. One of my personal favorites.
Summary: Self-explanatory title. This is my version of Agent Phil Coulson's "funeral" and side stories that go along with it. A not very cameo appearance by Zarla and Adam from FiLiAL. It's not necessary to know them for the story.
Going to the Capital with Captain America
I took a trip to Washington D.C. in May and the idea came to me sometime later.
Summary: Amela from Phil Coulson's Funeral and Related Side Stories and Steve Rogers go to Washington D.C. a vacation with Amela might become a series. Rated "T" because I'm paranoid. Oneshot.
Sandy needed a lot more love, I had a pair of footie pajamas and a desire to write.
Summary: Sandy meets a young girl. This wouldn't be so weird except for the fact that she had built a hidey hole on her rooftop. Homosexuality between two OCs. Oneshot.
Jack and His Camera
My most popular story next to FiLiAL. Inspired by my sister, Irish Lover Girl, and Children of a Lesser God, though I forget who that story is by. Look it up, it's pretty fantastic. It also has a prequel/companion, Cookies and Temples. Check it out when you get the chance.
Summary: Head cannon: Jack Frost's hoodie pocket was made to be bigger on the inside by North as a first Christmas present. Jack collects a truckload of items, including a camera. Man in Moon help the Guardians.
Jack and Poppy
Jack's sister needs love, not angst. And so does Sandy. So, this story was born!
Summary: Jack hardly even glanced at poppy fields. The one time he did nearly sent him into tears. Sandy wants to know why. A sort-of tie-in with Jack and His Camera.
Poppy Overland, Spirit of Laughter
Inspired by paying way too much attention to animation, Jack's sister is his first believer. Too bad he wasn't there to find out before she died. Good thing the Moon was watching and that I can't stand sad endings.
Summary: Jack's first believer was his little sister three years after he drowned. Too bad she died three days after she started believing. Good thing the Moon revived her, and that the Sandman is amazing at presents.
How to Prank the Guardians
The blackmail photos and pranks mentioned in JaHC and PO,SoL are here. I seriously spent far too much time thinking of these...
Summary: Or the five times Jack and Poppy pranked the Guardians (plus one) and the one time that the Guardians pranked them back. Remember those blackmail pictures I mentioned in JaHC, and the pranks in PO, SOL? Well, here they are. Rated for a cuss word in a quote. Oneshot.
Smoke and Mirrors and the Language of the Wind
I wanted to do something with a legend about mirrors I heard. Thus, this story was born!
Summary: Jack never looked at reflective surfaces for 302 years after he saw his reflection morph into something terrible. What happens when his sister, Poppy, the Spirit of Laughter, realizes why he's looking in horror at North's hall of mirrors? Oneshot.
I got obsessed with phobias for a day. Sue me (but don't. I don't want to deal with the paperwork). Also, I want to show you that everyone's afraid of something. It is completely natural.
Summary: Even the mightiest heroes are afraid of something. What are the Guardians afraid of?
Day of Silence
I participated in Day of Silence, a day to mirror the silence forced upon victims of LGTBQ bullying.
April 19th. On this day, people remove their voices from society to mirror the silence of victims of anti-queer bullying to show their support of LGBTQ individuals. This is my contribution.
Before the Fall (And After Too)
Status: In Progress
A oneshot series of Zarla's and Adam's lives before Falling in Love in Avatar Land and around ZS, though I'm thinking of taking the latter and making that a more Doctor Who oriented thing.
A oneshot series of Zarla and Adam from Falling in Love in Avatar Land.
You know, I've always hated it when people said that winter could just be done away with and nothing bad would come. Ever think it's there for a reason greater than the tilt of the Earth?
Summary: Winter is necessary. So is fun. So by extension, Jack Frost is a necessity. (AKA where the heck is the "explanation" genre?)
Poppy vs. Pitch
I mentioned Poppy kicking Pitch's ass in Phobia, and Jack already knew about her fear in Phobia, so this is a sort of prequel to it.
Summary: Remember how in Phobia Poppy fought Pitch and handed his butt to him? Well, here's the story behind that.
I got a request. I did it.
Summary: Request from Screaming Fire (guest). There were once four people- Sicily Jones and her brother, Henry, and their cousins, James and Thomas Lewis. They all died and became the spirits of the elements that killed them. This is their story.
I realized I mentioned Poppy's picture, and I wanted to know her reaction. This is what it is.
Summary: I mentioned in Jack and His Camera about his first picture being of his little sister... what happens when she finds it in his hoodie pocket one day? Oneshot.
This was actually rolling in my head about a month or so after "Penguin Pajamas". I just posted it recently because I was digging around my files.
Summary: In WWI and WWII, Russia wasn't taken over due to a few factors. One being the sheer size of the army and the cold that destroyed the armies not used to it. So how does Jack tie into this? Rated for mentions of war. Oneshot.
This story is the sequel to Falling in Love in Avatar Land and focuses on Zarla's adventures as "Protector of the Multiverse". Filled with OCs, AU and wibbly wobbly timey whimey and headcannon events, this story takes place amongst a multitude of fandoms, including but not limited to: Inheritance Cycle, Rise of the Guardians, Homestuck (maybe), Supernatural, Zelda, How To Train Your Dragon, Kingdom Hearts, and Doctor Who. Rated "M" for swearing, possibly graphic events, and ass kicking. I've had this idea since... chapter ten or FiLiAL? A long time, and many of the ideas are still being added or edited. HUGE shoutout to the following: TechnoGirl317, who edits this for me and encourages posting, my sister, Irish Lover Girl for ideas and future help with ideas, and my two friends for helping me with quite a few aspects of the story (names, ideas, outfits, etc., etc.)
Summary: The sequel to Falling in Love in Avatar Land, this is what happens when Zarla gets on the wrong side of some spirits and realizes that everything we think is fictional... isn't quite as fictional as we'd like to believe. Rated "M" for language and graphic scenes, but nothing sexual.
The TARDIS Says "No"
I had an idea and it had to be done. Although I haven't actually watched Doomsday, I hope I've read and seen enough about it to do this fix it justice. Also, seriously loving the fact that the TARDIS is a character in the character listings; she's my favorite, after all.
Summary: In which the TARDIS looks at Doomsday and says "Nah. Not doing it."
The Five Times Sandy Met Death
A five-and-one story, this tale tells of a strange, silent friendship between the Dream Bringer and Death. The time periods are probably inaccurate, but i tried. Also a reference to the Assassin's Creed fandom in here without mentioning it by name.
Summary: And the one time he didn't. People die in their sleep all the time. Wouldn't it make sense for the giver of dreams to meet the heralder of death?
TARDIS vs. Time Lord - The Box Wins
The only thing I have to say is that if the TARDIS, Ninth Doctor, and Donna were all in the same room and understood each other, nothing would ever get done because they'd be too busy sassing each other.
Summary: A few weeks after "The TARDIS Says No", the Doctor still hasn't talked with Rose. Well, he has, but not in the way the TARDIS wants him to. It's time for her to take matters into her own "hands"... again. Rose and Martha are mentioned briefly, but aren't really included otherwise.
TARDIS and the Thief-But-Not
I always wondered what the TARDIS thought of John Smith. I also wanted someone to call John Smith out on his Doctor-like behavior. (He's still the same man, just with different memories.) Winters-Dawn1221 gave me the inspiration to put my thoughts into words.
Summary: The TARDIS's reaction to the Doctor's self-hatred as voiced by John Smith in Human Nature and the Family of Blood. Rated mostly for uncomfortable topics, and hurt with little comfort. Inspired by a conversation Winters- Dawn1221 and I were having.
An attempt at showing the odd relationship between Hiccup's previous father figures and his best friend. How do they fare while their common ground is currently unconscious in his bed?
Summary: Stoick's at a stalemate. With his son's dragon, of all things. It's pretty much a day in the life of a chief with an unconscious son who's managed to flip the world upside down in less than two days.
Inspired by the many, many headcannons my friend and I had about Dragonese after watching HTTYD2, this fic was born.
Summary: Between Hiccup's curiosity and Toothless's intelligence, it was bound to happen sometime. They exchange languages. Somehow, this surprises people.
Because let's face it: Hiccup with baby dragons in Gift of the Night Fury is nothing short of adorable. Once again inspired by the many, many headcannons we had.
Summary:It really shouldn't have surprised Toothless how well his hatchling got along with the others. Birds of a feather flock together, right? (Though in this case, would it be dragons of a scale?)
Status: Complete (for real this time)
The thing that bothers the hell out of me is Hiccup's forgiveness. I mean, his entire village treated him as a walking disaster. The only person who'd give him the time of day was Gobber. And let's face it; even Gobber had a few listening issues. So assuming everything from the first movie to the series to GotNF to HTTYD2 is cannon, how could Hiccup forgive so quickly? This is my take on how, as told from Toothless's point of view. And also my deal with the Hiccup and Valka relations after the movie.
Summary: When did his hatchling get so wise? (Chapter Two discusses HTTYD2, so if you don't want spoilers, don't read that part.)
Hiccup's sword in HTTYD2 is befitting of a dragon trainer, especially one like Hiccup. But how did he find out about the Monstrous Nightmare saliva? How did he make the sword? Not without a few misadventures along the way.
I'd like to formally apologize for the last few paragraphs of repetitiveness and lack of details. I was excited but exhausted and you see the results.
Summary: Hiccup's fire-sword is a sight to behold. But how did he go about making it? The dragons know. At least one was there through every shout, curse, burn, and explosion that eventually ended up in the sword Inferno. Slight spoilers for HTTYD2.
As I'm sure you're aware by now, I had some issues with how quickly Hiccup forgave everyone. Why not show how Toothless didn't?
Summary: Hiccup forgives easily. But dragons can hold grudges to the death. So what does Toothless think about the man who shattered his hatchling's world?
Bread Making Viking
Oh come on. Do you really expect me not to nit-pick that quote apart? Think about it: Hiccup. Baking. It doesn't get any better!
Summary: There's a reason Hiccup asked if he could be a bread making Viking instead of a dragon killing one. HTTYD2 spoilers!
Status: Complete (for real this time)
Yeah, yeah, I know, stop adding details you're going to forget to write in later on... but in all seriousness, why are there only like, fifty stories for this couple? They need more love, damn it!
Summary: Blumiere and Timpani need some more love. So here's my contribution to the pairing that overcame an apocalypse!
Yet another one of the headcanons my friend and I made up. I actually had this sitting around for months... it usually just takes me a while to clean out my Documents folder!
Summary: Because admit it- we've all thought that hiccup would be hot if he wore glasses. Luckily, we're not alone. Astrid thinks the same as we do!
Return of the Void
This is why I haven't been posting many one-shots recently. Seventeen chapters long and a whopping 90,000 words, I feel as if I gave not only Blumiere and Timpani but Daisy the love they deserved. BRING DAISY INTO THE OTHER MARIO GAMES, NOT JUST THE SPORTS! Effective though they may be...
Summary: It's the end of the worlds... again. But this time, Blumiere, Timpani, and Daisy are along for the ride. How will this affect the events? Who is the mysterious "guy in green"? And why can't I sum up my own story? This story is done in honor of chuggaaconroy, whose Super Paper Mario Let's Play gave me the inspiration to write this. Enjoy!
Rise of the Guardians Head Cannons:
How to Prank the Guardians has some of my headcannons in it, so here they are in more detail:
In the book series, there are quite a few references to magic, especially in the village of Santoff Claussen (which is not North's workshop, or it was his first one before the one we see in RotG in any of my stories). Each and every Guardian has their own particular brand of magic, each one using a certain spell.
Jack: Children play! Said exactly like that. This is the spell he either knowingly or unknowingly binds in his special snowflakes/snowballs.
Tooth: Remember, remember, the childhood tales, remember, remember, the earliest details... More like a mantra or poem than a spell, this is the spell Tooth uses when there's a child having a particularly hard time remembering.
Sandy: Sandy's spell is... weird, if it could be considered a spell at all. It's the magic of his sand, which was once a star, so therefore, Sandy's spell is in a combination of the language of Sand and Stars. Jack can understand most of it, since he is a Nature Spirit, but it's extremely difficult to say.
Bunny: Bunny's spell is particular, mainly because it doesn't have a language. It's the feeling of hope, and he embeds it into his eggs every Easter.
North: North uses a variety of spells, each one to achieve a different brand of wonder for every child, because while one may be fascinated by stars, another is fascinated by cars.
Poppy: She's not a Guardian, so she doesn't have magic, but she does have some magic thread that, when in contact, makes it easier for you to laugh.
Having helpers is mainly a Guardian thing, but there are a few spirits who aren't Guardians who have them. Jack gains his helpers after becoming a Guardian. If you read How To Prank the Guardians, Neve the Polar Bear and Jack's Penguin Army are his new helpers, but only Jack has the power to spread Children Play! snowflakes.
