Author has written 12 stories for Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, Doom, and Dragon Ball Z.
Hi, As the name of the page says; I’m Bryan Dacote! Formally known as John Dacote and MetalshadowN64. I’m currently 24 and going on 25, I’m a hobbyist fanfiction writer who mostly writes stories for the Legend of Zelda since its what got me into reading fanfiction and if you look at my favorites you’ll see most of them are for LoZ.
I’m somewhat of a sperratic writer who will go for long periods without updates and then other times where I will be making updates frequently.
I’m pretty big into video games (mostly from the N64 and Gamecube Eras) I’m also a big anime/manga geek. I’m not gonna really bother listing all the games and animes I like since it’s a good sized list and it’s something I’d need to pointlessly update later. So basically the only major favorite games I have are LoZ: Majora’s Mask, Megaman Legends, Doom 3, Battlezone (1998), Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, Tales of Vesperia, and Skies of Arcadia. Animes are as follows: Steins;Gate, Eden of the East, FMA: Brotherhood, Case Closed, Ghibli movies, and various others. I don’t watch much “regular” TV anymore but I’ve been a Star Trek fanatic since I could walk, and I like M*A*S*H a lot. Favorite movies are as follows: Back To The Future trilogy, all Star Trek movies, and Castle in the Sky.
My Favorite books are “The Killer’s Cousin”, “And Then There Were None”, “Doom 3: Worlds on Fire”, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, Sherlock Holmes stories, and “Metal Gear Solid” (yes; the book adaption)
I can be pretty opinionated, but I always try to keep an open mind to anything. I tend to swear on occasion (I used to do it a lot more, I think) and this is reflected in my stories. I don’t drop F-bombs everywhere, just in parts I feel that could use it (usually in times of anger and such). I consider myself agnostic with a touch of fatalist (belief in fate/destiny) mixed in.
In terms of my writing style I notice I don’t write that much action and I tend to focus on drama and very little fantasy - so no characters who can go “OVER 9000!” at any given moment from me. Lately I’ve been writing shorter stories since I lack the patience and concentration to do long stories. I like to focus on family – especially relationships between fathers and their sons. But I also like to dabble in some romance and tragedy.
My current in-progress stories are:
“The Unwalked Path” (DBZ) – This is an AU of the what if events of Goku’s life if he was rasied on Planet Vegeta instead of Earth (along with a large number of other changes) The story is mostly being told by Kakarot to Goku (will go into how they are even meeting near the conclsion of the story but I may do a fight between them at the end) This will cover the Bardock movie and Freeza saga in particular.
“Heroes Rise” (Doom) – I have been working on this off and on since I was in High School, I refuse to dump this story since I do intend to finish it one day. There is a few chapters here already but I will not upload the rest till I have finished re-reading the story myself and fix any issues.
“Megaman Legends” – A novelization of the game of the same name. Its on a stricktly “work on it when I feel like it” bases. It may be dumped, maybe not. No idea.
“Can A Villain Become A Hero?” (title WIP) – this is a reboot of one of my earliest fanfiction story attempts (actually its older than Heroes Rise by about a year) This story was originally just a means of making Dark Link a good guy and pairing him up with Malon. I originally dumped the story since I sucked at romance more than I do now and that I didn’t have the plot well thought out and it was riddled with plot holes – especially by today’s standard with the Split Timeline theory. This will be taking place after Ocarina of Time and linking into Wind Waker.
“Eye of the Saiyan” this is a short story that will be one chapter long that is a possibly canon fight between Goku and Bardock (and a smart part with Raditz) on King Kai’s planet during the Saiyan Saga. Basically King Kai has decided to test Goku’s progress with his training and to see if he can use the Kaio-ken technique in combat against Bardock. This story was going to be called “Son of a Saiyan” but I decided on “Eye of the Saiyan” since this story fits the song “Eye of the Tiger” more-so than “Son of Man” which it was originally inspired from.
UNNAMED ZELDA STORY – I have in mind another Zelda story that also bridges the gap between OoT/MM to TP however I am SORTA cheating at this one. This will be based on the video theories by Vortexxygaming and M Productions over on Youtube. I haven’t put any serious thought into this yet-to-be-named story yet since right now “The Unwalked Path” and “Can A Villain Become a Hero?” are higher up on the priorities.
Completed Works are as follows:
“Give a Reason”, “I Reach Out a Hand”, “A Final Tale”, “Final Memories”, “A Hero’s Death”.
I also have completed 3 original short stories which you can find by googling “MetalshadowN64 Yola”. They are mostly set in WWII.Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE
