Author has written 5 stories for Legend of Zelda, and Metroid.
NOTE: Although I do love to write fanfiction, my true passion is music. I've begun to write my own music, and am trying to put a band together with my friends. Because I'm so focused on my music most of the time, I don''t do a lot of writing anymore, so please excuse the long update times ;)
Who I Am & What I Write
I'm a 16 year-old boy who is obsessed with music, fantasy/sci-fi books, Legend of Zelda, and Minecraft (not the online stuff, survival mode). I'm a pretty decent writer, but I know I still have a lot to learn.
I play drums and guitar quite proficiently, and I'm not a bad singer if I do say so myself. I am of the belief that modern pop music is degrading music as an art form. It is literally idiots vomiting autotune over a synth background and all the lyrics are about either girls/boys, partying, or both. It's stupid and I feel bad for people who love it. I like bands whose lyrics go beyond one or two topics, especially when those lyrics make you have to think deeply in order to know what they're about, because that proves that the songwriter is truly an artist, not an idiot doing it for the fame, the money, and the girls. As you can probably now tell, I'm very adamant on this matter.
Let's see, what else... I was raised Christian, but now am an atheist. I won't be a dick and call people out for having different beliefs than I do, but I just can't bring myself to have faith in a religion with so many contradictions. Give me science and solid facts any day, and I'll be happy. :)
I have a couple plans for my own stories, but for the time being, I like writing fanfiction much better. :D Most of my Zelda stories are about the Hero of Time because he is my favorite incarnation of Link, especially in Majora's Mask. I have tried my hand at the Adventure Time and Metroid fandoms, but the people in the Adventure Time fandom that actually read my story were kind of weird (like BAD weird), and I just don't feel Samus as much as I do Link. So LoZ is the fandom for me! _
I like redheads, so I usually go ahead and ship LinkXMalon or more likely LinkXRomani because I like MM better than OoT. If I ever wrote a TP story (which may or may not happen), I would ship either LinkXIlia because Ilia is frickin' gorgeous, or LinkXAshei and ShadXIlia because ColleenTJ got me into those and it's amazing. Since we're on possible shippings here, I might ship LinkXTetra, GanondorfXNabooru, or, if I'm feeling very edgy, LinkXMido. I mean seriously, that's one of the few GOOD LoZ yaoi pairings. All that GhiraLink crap out there is just stupid.
You will never see me write a ZeLink story. Never. Like, ever. Seriously. ZeLink has been done to death, it is stale, it is unlikely in most games, and it is just the most vapid pairing there could be. "Oh, Link saves the princess every time so clearly he's in love with her!" Yes, very original. That's thinking outside the box, that is. That was sarcasm by the way.
I am not afraid to throw around swear words in my stories. I don't drop an F-bomb every other sentence, but they are there, and they may shock you if you aren't prepared. If there is a lot of cussing in a story, I will put a warning in the summary. If you don't like swear words in your stories, you should go find someone else's stories to read.
Lastly, and I think you can see this by now, I'm very opinionated. I'm not going to actively seek out things I don't like to complain about them, but I figure that since this is MY profile, I can be as opinionated as I want to be, as people who are here are probably trying to learn more about me anyways. So please don't hate me just because I have a different opinion on something you like. If I've said something here that really offended you though, please send me a PM and I will take that statement out. Unless it's the thing about pop music. That's staying there and there's nothing anyone can do about it.
Random Facts About Me
My top 5 favorite LoZ games in order are Majora's Mask, Skyward Sword (these two are tied for first place), The Wind Waker, Ocarina of Time (these two are tied for second), and A Link to the Past..
Reasons I don't support MidLink: Because I don't, okay? I just don't like it and it doesn't make sense. So there. Sue me.
Opinion on Four Swords Yaoi: It is just disgusting. I have nothing against yaoi, but this is just absolutely disgusting. LinkXLink? Ugh, that's just... ugh. I have no other words for this except "ugh." Seriously, assuming you were split into four of yourself, would you really be in love with yourself? So much so that you would even make out?! Seriously! It's freaking gross and completely messed up!
My other favorite games not in order are Metroid (series), Final Fantasy X, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Kingdom Hearts (series), Banjo Tooie (never beaten the first one for some reason...), Jak (series), and a few Dragon Quests as well.
I speedrun Ocarina of Time 3D and casually speedrun MM (glitches in this game are soooooo much fun!) and Super Metroid.- The source of all Zelda speedrunning knowledge. - Live streams of speedruns and races. www.twitch.tv/norkix - my live stream channel. I don't stream all that often, but I love it when people hang out with me, so give me a follow if you're interested!
My favorite book series are Eragon (properly titled the Inheritance Cycle, but I don't know anyone who says that), Redwall (series), and Forgotten Realms.
My two favorite TV shows are Scrubs (OMG THE FEELS OMG) and Eureka (it's just so freaking awesome _). My other favorite shows include Adventure Time, Regular Show, Saturday Night Live, Gravity Falls (possibly the only show on Disney Channel that appeals to boys/isn't lamer than my old music teacher's jokes), and l.
My favorite band hands down is Chevelle. They're an amazing band right on the edge of hard rock and alt metal. Their music evolves with every album, and each album is a standalone masterpiece. Other bands I enjoy include Tool, (old) Green Day, The Riverdales, Pinhead Gunpowder, (old) Three Days Grace, The Alkaline Trio, System of a Down... I could go on for another whole paragraph. Suffice it to say that I like alt rock, hard rock, punk rock, and certain alt metal.
Here is a list of songs I enjoy by some of the above bands in no particular order:
Tool: Almost every song. I don't really want to make a list for these guys...
Chevelle: EVERY song! ... Except for "Arise" on Hats Off to the Bull. That song is just not good. I mean sure the lyrics are good but the riff is complete ass and I don't like it.
The Offspring: All songs from "SMASH," Gone Away.
Green Day: When I Come Around, Basket Case, Longview, Holiday, Give Me Novacaine, Twenty-One Guns.
System: All of the album Mesmerize, Question!, Toxicity, Chop Suey!, Aerials, Spiders.
NO ONE IS AS IMPATIENT AS I AM FOR KINGDOM HEARTS III!!!!!!
Stories In Progress
Majora's Revenge - A story I've been writing over and over since 5th Grade. Link returns to Termina to get some R&R at the Carnival. However, the Demon Queen Majora, whom Link unknowingly freed from the mask, wants revenge. For this version, I have added a RomLink pairing, which plays a pivotal role in the plot. In my opinion, it's horrible until chapter 8, but the reviews tell me otherwise.
Ocarina of Time - This was inspired by FakeJake93's retelling of Majora's Mask. GO READ IT RIGHT NOW, IT'S IN MY FAVORITES AND TRUST ME: YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. This is a retelling of OoT that aims to take the story of the game and expand upon it and its characters. It is beta'd by Colleen-TJ, who I also enjoy long nerd talks with while discussing later chapters. I hope you will give it a read. :)
What Needed to Be Said - This is my first oneshot. It came to me in the middle of the night, and I typed it out and put it up. Just an idea. Tatl wants to apologize to Link for being a jerk before he goes up the Clock Tower for the last time. That's it.
The Mysterious Youth - This is my second oneshot. It's kind of a drabble, but kind of not. Not nearly as good as WNtBS because I was tired as all hell.
Corruption - SO I WROTE A PRIME 3 FIC YEARS AFTER IT WAS RELEASED. SUE ME. Samus contemplates her morals after she mercilessly slaughters a party of Space Pirates on Bryyo.
Upcoming and Planned Stories
A Metroid story of some kind.
An as-of-yet unnamed sequel to Majora's Revenge. I'm not saying much now, because it will spoil MR's ending, but let's just say that Link isn't quite who he was in MR and when a dear friend returns from his past, possessed by an ancient and obscure evil, things may not go the way they have before.
Adventure Time with Simon and Marci - This wasn't really working out, and plus there was an official episode about this, so I didn't want to infringe with canon too much. I know that's what fanfiction is about, but... whatever.
Well, there's me of course XD Heheh. Heh. No? Okay...
Where do I begin? I've met a lot of amazing people on this site. First and foremost, my beta for my OoT novelization, Collentj! She is probably one of the best authors I know. She can go from making you laugh hard enough to make people stare to making your eyes misty in an instant. She is probably one of the best writers on the site, and an amazing beta to boot! My favorite story of hers is "My House, My Rules." You won't get any spoilers here, just go read it here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8226862/1/My-Roof-My-Rules
Secondly, FakeJake93, the guy who got me into fanfiction with his novelization of Majora's Mask. This guy is one of the most badass writers I have ever had the fortune to stumble across. Goddamn, can he tell a story! There is so much awesomeness and original content packed into this novelization. It's a shame it's likely going to be his only story though. Anyways, here's the link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6429588/1/Majora-s-Mask
Next up, ZeldaRubix! ZR is a great writer all around, and her story "Girl with the Green Hair" will probably always be my favorite story by her. It completely changed the way I look at SariaXLink (though I still don't think I'll ship it...), and "How Zelda Got Her Groove Back" is, i think, the most reviewed story in the Zelda fandom. She makes time to send a response to every review, and if you have a story that piques her interest, she will dig right into that thing and review every single chapter. She's awesome, and her reviews to Majora's Revenge really gave me the confidence I needed to become the author I am today. _ "Girl with the Green Hair" can be found here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7877790/1/The-Girl-with-the-Green-Hair
Lastly, I'd have to say MetalshadowN64. He's a fellow RomLink fan, and i've really enjoyed his work. I'll link you to his page, since most of his stories tie into each other: http://www.fanfiction.net/u/4141558/MetalshadowN64
QUOTES! MOST OF THEM ARE REALLY STUPID! WHY DID I MAKE THIS SECTION AT ALL!
