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 general avatar here is an oekaki-painting I did of Majora's Mask Link after meeting with a terrible fate.
I've been a fanfiction writer for a variety of fandoms. I keep a Deviant Art page. I also hang out at the Zelda Dungeon forums and I have a few fics up at Ao3. I feel "old" as far as fanfiction writers go, particularly for my fandoms, which are principally anime and videogames. As of the present, I refuse to get a Facebook page and Tumblr sort of scares me. I abandoned LiveJournal long ago. (I'm even an introvert on the Internet)! In fact, I worry that if something bad ever happens to me... my Internet hangouts will never know, though I've already come out alive and whole from stuff you wouldn't believe.
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, wank-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. It's crap and is only up for members of the old Team Rocket Headquarters community and for those who like to do Mystery Science Theater 3000 fic-riffs and are short on literary equivalents of "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians." -- (which is an amusing movie, by the way, when expertly live-riffed).
I wrote Trigun fanfic for quite a long time - that stuff varies in quality (some of it I still like, some I cringe at).
Nowadays, a lot of my writing is for video games, with "The Legend of Zelda" series inspiring a large number of stories.
"Shadow of the Colossus" is probably my most "obscure" fandom - I actually find it difficult to write a lot of fic for that game, even though it's a favorite because it is lovely and stark and beautiful just the way it is.
I seem to like doing strange stuff of the likes that I do not see others doing in fandom. Seeing a lack of themes I like in any given fandom is often what inspires me to write. This is why I arrive at Legend of Zelda Westerns and improbable crossovers. What inspires me even more are the little questions I ask while I am an audience for canon work - which is probably why I write mostly for video games (trying to figure out the little bits of weird logic and protagonist-centered tidbits that just wouldn't make sense in anything other than a video game). If something makes my mind mull over a lot of questions, I'll probably end up writing something for it.
I am primarily a Gen-ficcer. Even "shippy" fic I try seems to turn out more philosophical than traditionally romantic.
Well, it's weird, and it's here. Enjoy or flee.
I do original work, too. It can be found at, My official writing site. It also carries a selection of my "elite" fan fiction.
I currently have an original novel on Kindle. A World of Rusted DreamsIt'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 a quiet, philosophical piece with occasional bouts of adventure and murder. Oh, and deserts! If you like my fan fiction, you should like it. It's self-published, so it's nothing to get one's britches in a bunch over, but it exists and is available for all you happy people with a reading addiction and a gravitation toward fantasy and mind-screw. In other words: BUY MY BOOK! BUY MY BOOK! BUY MY BOOK! (Don't make me sick that standee from "The Critic" on you)!
Shameless self-promotion out of the way, as far as Fanfiction dot Net culture goes, I believe that one's profile should try not to exceed the size of one's fic-list by the length of the "Harry Botter" series or the collected works of Tolstoy. This one's long, but so is my fic-list. (I had to warn you of the Old Shame, you see). Long profiles are not a crime, but I come to read fics, not lists of what element people are or their every political opinion. I also believe that if you "suck at summaries" you should leave it blank or learn to write them rather than announce your ineptitude. Practicing at writing drabbles (100 word restricted fics) are a good way to learn how to de-suck yourself with summaries.
