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 is a fan art painting I did of Link from The Legend of Zelda if he were a Colossus from Shadow of the Colossus.
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, 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 stated out writing for the Pokemon anime. Move along now, nothing to see. Just a lot of Muk and the aftermath of Voltorb Self-Destructs. Old Shame? They're older than Arceus. I still play the games on occasion.
I wrote Trigun fanfic for quite a long time - that stuff varies in quality (some of it I still like, some I cringe at). Vash the Stampede is still my role-model. Love and Peace!
Nowadays, a lot of my writing is for video games, with The Legend of Zelda series inspiring a large number of stories. Link's hat ate my brain. The Master Sword has pierced my heart.
Shadow of the Colossus is probably my most "obscure" fandom. When I see vines outside, I get the urge to climb them.
I don't consider myself a superlative Hunger Games writer, at least outside of crossovers, but I have a couple of attempts at straight fic. Maybe one day, if I write enough for it, my stories will battle it out until one emerges as the sole survivor.
I'm getting my wings stretched in Kid Icarus fandom. I feel like I'm flying pretty high so far.
I currently have an original novel on Kindle. A World of Rusted Dreams 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 a quiet, philosophical piece with occasional bouts of adventure and murder.
A reminder to some of the reviewers of my Legend of Zelda fanfiction: "Remember that it's just a show and you really should relax!" _ MSTK3. I have noticed a tendency in this fandom for many people to get attached to fanon and fandom-theories to the point of thinking they're canon and scolding fan authors and fan artists for going "off-canon" when they take a different opinion or explore a different direction on one detail or another. I also have several pieces in the Legend of Zelda fandom on here that were written BEFORE the Hyrule Historia book came laying down an "official" Timeline and clearing up other tidbits of lore. I may have accidentally semi-predicted the existence of Fi with one of my short fics years before she was a reality, but it doesn't mean I'm consistently fandom-clairvoyant, nor am I in a habit of changing ages old fics to fit all current canon. Unless I decide to do a remake, any given fic I do "exists in its time." Even with a copy of Hyrule Historia on my bookshelf, sometimes I enjoy going my own direction with a fan-story, taking a different angle to it, always with a purpose in mind. The HH itself states that The Legend of Zelda "is a legend" and therefore prone to loosening of lore over time. One day, the people of the Great Sea will be hunting for the Triumph Forks. Deal with it.
