Poll: Favorite recent fic? Vote Now!
Author has written 31 stories for Mario, Super Smash Brothers, Sonic the Hedgehog, F-Zero, and Kid Icarus.
Now, who the heck is this!?
I am KoopalingFan, a seventeen old male who is interested in various video game franchises that are mainly made by Nintendo. Despite that, as of now, I only have Super Smash Brothers stories that are currently in progress, the only reason is that I adore that franchise so much, with Brawl being my favorite game of all time. Nonetheless, I have a great feeling that it will be replaced by the new game coming up.
Getting back on topic, I plan to write fanfics from other franchises I love, as long as I have ideas.
I am the manager of the Super Smash Brothers: The Fanfics commmunity, along with the supportive Fanfics Forum. For those of you who are interested in joining the crew, please shoot me a PM, along with a story you picked. If I like your fic enough, I'll send you an invite code for the forum.
Now for a final note of introductions, if there is any fic that you feel needs to be critiqued, please send me a PM as I've said before. I am also a Beta Reader, so I don't mind reading over an upcoming fic or two.
And if you simply PM me just for chatting, I'm down with that, too.
Let's move on, now, shall we?
10-31-15: Happy Halloween, everyone! This might be a little late since most of the day is finished already, then again, I'm actually a bit early. It's almost five in the evening over here right now and night hasn't even approached, yet.
But anyway, I have an announcement to make. I am once again attempting to write a Halloween fic. Only this time, it's going to have multiple chapters. I'm unfortunately not going to release it today because the idea came to me only days before the 31st. And since I haven't actually started writing yet, it will most likely arrive next month at the earliest. But that doesn't seem to far from now, looking at the bright side.
I will not let you guys know when exactly is it going to be published. But in the mean time, I could write a oneshot for Smash or two for those of you who are still waiting for the second chapter of "May I Have This Dance?" to not only make it up to them, but to build up more excitement for the Halloween fic.
See ya soon!

My Opinion of Disclaimers
"All characters belong to their respective owners."
It bugs me to think of a valid reason to why most people put disclaimers in their fics, not that I'm mad at anyone who does so here. But, think about it for a moment. Most of the people on this website are kids, meaning that we are simply too young to be the owners of franchises.
Though, it is not the main point of what I'm trying to say. If we owned canon characters, why in the world would we be here in the first place? We have no business having an account here, let alone writing fanfiction. Therefore, there is no valid reason to include disclaimers in our stories. It just confuses me, to be honest...
Think twice about this the next time you're about to write a disclaimer before you start a chapter of your Fanfiction.
Fanfic Rating System
For now on when I review fanfics, I will give it a certain rating if it's completed.
Here's how it works...
0/10: Disaster- Normally troll fics that I don't even bother to read, which are insults toward writers.
1/10: Terrible- Mostly troll fics, similar to the previous rating.
2/10: Horrible- Similar to above.
3/10: Awful- A fanfic that could have had a lot of potential with the characters, plot, etc. You probably won't see this though, for reasons above.
4/10: Bad- A fanfic that has a couple good things, but it is very flawed.
5/10: Mediocre- It's not bad, yet not good at the same time. Even. Average. What more can I say here?
6/10: Okay- There are good things about the story, but there are just certain parts that cannot be ignored.
7/10: Good- Basically parts about the work that puts a small smile on readers faces, even though there are a few problems.
8/10: Great- The type of fanfic that I'll most likely recommend to authors. Mostly great things about it, with less things that needs tweaking.
9/10: Excellent- A story that I find really awesome. And I'll praise every detail about, with only a couple errors.
10/10: Outstanding- These types of fics are absolutely outstanding, with barely noticeable errors. Authors of them shall be recommended to anyone.
If you can't decide between two ratings, you can alternate a bit. For example, if you find a fic that you feel that you should give it a "6" or a "7" out of 10, you can give it a "6.5" out of 10. That being said, you can spread this if you want! Maybe one day Fanfiction will have an official rating system!
Stories That Are In Progress
About: They say there's no such thing is having a really bad day of the year, though some say otherwise. Either way, never forget the ones who raised you, no matter how many obstacles get in your way, even if it is life-threatening.
Chapters Published: 7 out of ?
Next Story to be Updated: No Such Thing
Next Story to be Published: May I Have This Dance?
I just now realized that a handful of my stories are actually sort of sequels to others. I've decided to take the time to list them here. Feel free to look if you want.
Kirby's Epic Yarn X: Kirby
About: Basically Kirby's Epic Yarn with a twist. The X means for crossover! Characters from other franchises will be added in, creating more plot development, which is a thing I like in fanfiction as mentioned before.
Release Date: TBA
Chapters Written: 0 out of ?.
Each One Should Earn Respect
About: It's time to enter the very first tournament for the fourth Super Smash Brothers era. No telling on what rank a fighter will be, nor their success. The best thing to do is treat each and every one of them with respect and hope for the best.
Release Date: TBA
The Problems in the Super Smash Brothers section:
As much as I love the game and this section, there are multiple problems about the archive and I feel that they need to be fixed.
1. The following smashers are the ones that get WAY too much attention: Link, Zelda, Marth, Ike, Pit, (yes I'm including him in this one.) and Samus. (AKA, the humans)
It's mainly the fangirls who write about them all the time. No offense to the ones that don't. It's just the human smashers that get the spotlight. One would think that it is like discrimination. Don't get me wrong, I think that these guys are awesome. But that doesn't mean use them way too much in stories and completely abandon other smashers like Donkey Kong. He is really popular in his games, but barely popular in this archive. Seriously, though? Some people act like they're the only characters from the game! And when they do add the characters that barely gets the spotlight, their personalities are bland! I hate it when that happens! And just because you don't know much about the character does not mean abandon them. Just look it up! For those of you who realize this problem, spread the word! If you want to write a fic about a character that barely gets attention, these are the smashers you should focus on: Falco, Wolf, R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Olimar, Pikmin, Sheik, exactly ALL of the Pokémon characters, Dedede, Wario, Ganondorf, both Ice Climbers, Young Link, Bowser, and Captain Falcon. Heck, not even the assist trophies get enough attention! And other characters like Knuckles. And no I'm not including the three newcomers because they just been added to the archive almost three months now.
2. Too. Much. Yaoi.
I'm not saying that there should absolutely be no yaoi at all. It's called fanfiction for a reason you know. But there has been way too much yaoi lately and it's starting to get on my nerves. (It's mainly MarthxIke.) The Sonic archive is much worse, but that's a different story. If you want to do yaoi, make sure you don't flood the archive with it.
3. Not Enough Reviewers
If I only write in this section and not others, I would have never realized this problem in the first place. There are simply not enough reviewers in this section. How do I know this you ask? When I post a Mario fanfic, I get more reviews as I publish new chapters. Now imagine getting 5 reviews on the first chapter of your SSB fic and getting only 1 on the next. My story 'Brawl Adventure' is an example. And when I do get reviews for it, all they say is 'Great chapter' or 'Nice job' and stuff like that. They don't even know how to review! At least say what you like about it! Heck you even say what you disliked so I can improve for crying out loud! I'm not begging for reviews but seriously, though. People delete their fics some times because they don't get enough reviews so that they feel that they should keep going. And when they delete it, the people that don't review PM the author saying 'How come you delete that fic? It's awesome!' then the author will reply by saying this: 'Simply because I didn't get any reviews. So I figured that barely anyone was reading.' If you wanna know how to get more reviews, PM me and I'll tell you!
4. The Smash Mansion
Surprised? No? Yes? Yeah, I can see all the glares now because I added this to the list.
As we all know, somebody in the world suggested that the brawlers live inside a mansion. We all thought it was great idea, and nothing could go wrong...
...Except when it's overused...
I know, I use the Smash Mansion, too. But at least I have a fic that doesn't involve the mansion too much. The Smash Mansion can be fun and all, but after talking to a friend, I have to agree when he said that the mansion is very overused, which is why he barely uses the mansion in his fics.
The problems in the Sonic the Hedgehog Section:
Yeah... To me, the archive is like ten times worse than the Smash Brothers archive, not intending to offend anyone here. I once discussed with friends of mine on a forum, and one of them said that absolute everything is wrong the archive itself. Can't blame him, you know? But seriously, the archive has so much potential. *Sighs* I haven't even started to list the reasons and I'm already annoyed... So I think I should start, now...
1. Romance, Pairings, Couples, You Name It.
"Oh my god! These two should be together!"
"Wow, another new canon character! Who should I pair him/her up with..."
"Ooh, it's Shadow and Sonic! I should make a fic of them making ou-"
Yeah... Those three quotes alone pretty much explains what I'm trying to say, here... And you can already tell that I hate it when people do this with a passion.
First of all, not every single Sonic the Hedgehog fanfiction needs to be about pairings and romance. It's got to a point where one can assume that the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise is all about romance. I myself written a fic about Knuckles and Rouge, and to this day I regret doing so. Yet, people are still reviewing it, despite the fact that my writing was extremely bad at the time...
Seriously, people. I'm pretty sure that there are plenty other genres out there, other than romance... All you have to do is to click on that certain tab when you're ready to publish a new Sonic fic.
Just because of this, it makes me turn away from the archive sometimes when I wanna read a Sonic fic. Every time I try to come up with an idea, I always think about the extreme romance problem. Thus, you do not see me publishing Sonic fics as much.
2. Where did he/she come from?
Anybody heard of OCs?
Most of the crowd raises hands*
Yeah, thought so. This problem is quite big, but not nearly as much as the problem above. People often create too many OCs. And when they do, we know literally nothing about them. We never know their backstories, motivations, or not even where in the name of Solaris did they come from. And sometimes, there are fics that contain a kajillion of OCs, yet not one canon character, and that's sad...
I understand that people have not played every game out there, and the fact that not everyone knows every character. But that gives you no excuse as to why you create loads of OCs and not involve at least a single canon character.
Be sure to tell your fellow fanfictioneers about this and show them, so that these archives can be improved. More franchises and their problems shall be listed as I find them.
