Hello, this is the account of Xployalist.
I actually did write a fanfic once, an Eragon self-insert. I realized that I had created a classic Marty Stu fic, and then promptly lost the floppy disk that held the digital file and ripped up the physical file.
I do have one fanfic I'm cooking up, but it hasn't progressed much further than plot bunny stage. The general gist is that the Link of Twilight Princess, the "Hero of Twilight", is in many ways similar to his predecessor, the Hero of Time. Both travel to an alternate universe, Termina for the Hero of Time and the Twilight Realm (albeit much more briefly) for the Hero of Twilight. Now, I've seen many fanfics that attempt to reunite Link and Midna after the events of Twilight Princess, but I've not yet seen one that takes this route.
The opening text for The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask states that the reason that Link was running around the Lost Woods in the first place was that he was searching for a dear friend, later confirmed by Nintendo to be Navi, his exposition fairy from Ocarina of Time. The Hero of Twilight, like the Hero of Time, ends up parting with his own exposition fairy at the end of the game at the Mirror of Twilight. Because of those similarities, Link would probably be searching like mad for any way into the Twilight Realm. He thinks he gets a lead when Zelda tells him a legend passed down by the royal family of Link's adventures in Termina, but thinks that Termina is the Twilight Realm by a corruption to the legend over the ages. He knows that the Hero of Twilight entered the "alternate dimension" through a portal in the Lost Woods, which have become the Sacred Grove. Link finds the portal and goes through it, but realizes that this is not the Twilight Realm when he sees the sun hanging in the sky. Link then remembers Midna briefly mentioning Clock Town and its Carnival of Time while complaining about how boring Hyrule Castle Town is. Link realizes that there must be another Mirror of Twilight, and sets out to find it. And, that's about as far as I've gotten. Feel free to use it, just PM me when you have the first chapter posted. A mention in the author's notes would be nice, as well.
Anyways, besides the above paragraphs, I mostly established this account to create a permanent review account. I mostly review fics that I feel strongly about, and "meh" fics that I read aren't going to get any response. I'm a bit more on the negative side than most reviewers, with most fics I review getting "decent" at best. I try to give honest reviews, and if I ever track down the "deku scrub sandwich" fanfic, I will rip it to shreds.
