Hello, I’m Shadsie.
No, I am not an X-Men fan, nor is my name related to the character Shad of Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, as much as I do like him. I originally took an online handle after a cat named "Shadow" that once owned me and it evolved into "Shadsie" over the years.
I've been a fanfiction writer for a variety of fandoms. I keep a Deviant Art page. I'm also on Ao3 and I fart around TV Tropes. Otherwise, I don't keep up much on social media. I recently got a Facebook, but mostly for keeping in touch with distant family and a few friends.
As of 2016, I am an active writer, but most things pre-2008 and everything pre-2004 on here is "Old Shame" that I keep up anyway, because the evolution of writing is a good thing to examine and providing stuff for snarking should be every old-timer fanfiction writer's charitable duty. If you delve into that stuff, I apologize for the following: Overly flowery descriptions, facepalm-worthy tidbits from back when I used to be more politically/religiously conservative than I am now (I'm pretty sure I have one of those horrible evangelistic-stories still around when I'm more of universal reconciliation / not-sure-what-is-true seeker now), fandom-infighting-response fics, and the fact that I was newly finding my feet in "darkfic" writing and it took me a while to learn the subtleties of horror and tragedy. You've been warned.
I currently have an original novel on Kindle. The title is A World of Rusted Dreams if you want to look it up, since this page seems like it has decided it hates links that don't come from Hyrule. It's a fantasy story set in the remains of a future world about a pair of young people traveling to a distant city with supernatural guardian creatures that only "believers" can see. It's both an adventure and a quiet, philosophical piece. If you like my fics, you'd probably like it. I have other novels in various creation and editing stages. As pathetic as it sounds, I am actually trying to become an author without tethers. (If I ever make it as a pro, though, I'll probably still write fanfic, because it's fun, dagnabbit).
I write for a lot of stuff, but the bulk of my fan-writing over the last decade has been for video games, particularly Nintendo titles. I believe that I am best known among fans of The Legend of Zelda.
My approach to fan fiction involving mixed worlds and / or characters I do not know well is as follows - (That is, fan fiction for Super Smash Bros. or for canons that take place in their own worlds or eras, but are a part of a series): In worlds involving a mix of my core-fandoms and fandoms I know much less about, I do not include histories or mythologies I do not know well as a general rule. I play within the given, standalone world and when I try to include anything I do not know first-hand at any given time while I'm working on a fic, I do basic research on it. I do welcome reader-feedback on this regard, but still may not include your favorites in a long fic if I do not feel confident about my handling of the requested / suggested character or mythos. Sometimes, I've tried to handle a character I don't know first-hand based on research and have wound up wanting to get into the canon and discovering a new fandom. (You can read Kid Icarus fics by me for this reason and, by extension, Fire Emblem: Awakening fics by me because a friend I met in KI fandom got me into that game)... However I'm still avoiding use of any older FE characters anywhere for the "I haven't played their games" reason. For you Smash Bros. fic-fans out there: A head's up. I think I'm the only nerd I know who hasn't played Final Fantasy in any form, therefore, no Cloud from me as per my policy and lack of confidence to handle such a widely-loved character. I'd much rather avoid writing a character or give them minimal "screen time" than to botch up their entire personality or history - unless I'm going very Alternate Universe / changed setting, in which case, the summary and author head-notes will tell you all you need to know - Even then, I try to "do canon" as much as possible. Research is a writer's best friend.
