Hello, I’m Shadsie.
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'm on Facebook but mostly for keeping in touch with distant family and a few friends - and aside from a few art piece, it is friends-only.
As of 2017, 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.
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. 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.
Status of In-Progress Stories: - Legend of Zelda crossovers older than 2011 (abandoned). The National Anthem universe of crossovers between Nintendo / Super Smash Bros. and The Hunger Games (pending - possibly abandoned, but with some hope for fresh greenlight). Arise - A Fire Emblem: Awakening horror tale (abandoned). Tales of the Way-Station - A Super Smash Bros. variety tale (pending).
Possibly my best-known fic is the old Zelda piece, The Great Desert. -- I personally think at this point that it's a hot-garbage mess. If you came to my profile because you saw that fic linked elsewhere, I do not need to know how many problems there are with it, I already know about them, nor do I need the "What were you thinking?" judgement leveled at me. (I co-wrote it with a friend for fun). The particular piece is one of those "loved or hated" fics, or "loved and then hated" fics by many readers and I am well aware of it. I am just letting you know my feelings on it. I consider it to have numerous flaws, but I enjoyed exploring the ideas present in it and, moreover, I enjoyed meshing ideas with another author. I've done loads of other, unrelated fanfics beyond it. It's not my magnum opus. It's also not coming down because some people did seem to like it and I don't think I can ever shed my name from it, anyway, so it remains - but I'm not grinning with an overage of pride over it. I urge people who were or are disappointed in it not to write me off as a fanfic author and to check out work of mine that isn't almost a decade old.
If you are here because of my other most-famous piece, Wolfhide - (a Zelda horror story that seems to shock most people with its premise, despite its story-direction being pretty clear), well... I'm still proud of that one.
