Author has written 10 stories for Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy XIII, and Final Fantasy XIII-2.
Selphie Kinneas 175 here! But you can totally just call me Selphie.
My online alias is from Final Fantasy VIII. It's the name Selphie Tilmitt would acquire were she to marry Irvine Kinneas. They have both always been my two favorite characters from FFVIII, I've always really connected with Selphie and thought she was just like me, and I was madly in love with Irvine when I was younger, so that is where Selphie Kinneas came about. The numbers, however, are of no significance (I just liked the pattern it made on the number pad when I created it, and so they've stuck with me ever since).
My real name starts with the letter 'J' and I'm a 23 year old female.
I most enjoy writing for The Legend of Zelda. Nintendo has created such a beautiful and vast world with endless opportunities that just spark up my creativity like nothing else can.
Most of my stories are in-game, and most of them have quite dark undertones. When I approach a new story, I look at it from a realistic aspect and ask myself, 'How would this happen if it were in real life?' and 'How would I feel if this were to happen to me?' Of course, there can never be one hundred percent realism in stories based off of video games, but I do my best with what I have.
Updates sometimes take a while for me. That isn't because I'm not devoted to my stories or my readers, actually quite the opposite. I take my time with my writing, taking extra care to make sure it is the absolute best I can produce before posting. I double check for errors and typos because I feel that work that is littered with mistakes can tend to not only be difficult to read, but it comes off as if the writer doesn't care about the quality of their writing. I want my readers to feel the devotion I have to my writing as they're reading my words. I always put quality over quantity.
Right now my one and only writing focus is What Makes a Hero. It is my baby in every sense of the term. I take extra time and care to ensure it's the best it can be and I really hope you will have a look at it if you haven't already. To those of you that have been with me for most (or even all) of this journey, thank you so much for continuing to read and review. Honestly, I would have stopped writing a very long time ago if I hadn't gained so many loving fans and friends along the way. You guys keep me going, and I can't thank you enough for giving me the motivation to continue doing what I love. I love you all, every single one of my readers! :)
Currently, What Makes a Hero is undergoing some revisions in the early chapters. I've realized that, since this story has now spanned over three years of my life, my writing has improved, and some of the earlier chapters do not match my current style. I have not yet completed revisions on all the chapters that I plan to, but I have gotten up to Chapter 40 done and am working diligently on giving Chapter 41 a facelift. I hope you will check it out and I'll keep this updated with which chapters have been edited!
Attention: I have a Facebook fan page dedicated solely to my work on this site and I would love to see you become a part of the growing community there! I use it as a way to update my readers on how the story is coming along and we also have quite a few discussions on various topics. You can ask me any questions that have ever pricked at your brain, you can give me any suggestions or feedback you would like, or anything else that may strike your fancy. I would love to see more of you there as I love communicating with my readers! You can find it here:
Lastly, I would like to share with all of you some lovely pieces of art done by one of my fabulous readers for What Makes a Hero :)
Here's another piece that is currently being worked on by an artist who would love to hear some feedback from fellow readers:
P.S. I totally love reviews ;)
