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. My current avatar for the Fall / Halloween season is Pit of Kid Icarus as a zombie. It is from a concept-illustration I did for "Road Trip" - a Super Smash Bros. fan fiction that puts the characters in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Cliche', perhaps, but stupid-fun to write.
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 2015, 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, daganbbit).
I write for a lot of stuff, but the bulk of my 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, though I've been stretching my wings, of late, in the Kid Icarus section.
