Poll: On the Ao3 version of Harry Potter: Four Swords Adventures, should I set more of my concept art for characters and dungeons to display directly in the text instead of being clickable hyperlinks? Vote Now!
Author has written 1 story for Legend of Zelda, and Harry Potter.
Hello, whoever's reading this! I'm a college graduate who's been writing in my free time since high school, and I'd like to think I've become at least decent at it. Longtime fanfiction lurker, first-time fanfiction writer. I spend a lot of my time writing, drawing, and melting my brain with vintage tokusatsu. Battle Fever J is a masterpiece and I shan't hear otherwise.
I'm on Tumblr at garden-eel-draws so I can post fanfic illustrations and random doodles. Here's where you can find me outside of FFNet:
garden - eel - draws . tumblr . com (remove spaces). I've got a handy navigation post pinned to the top, where my illustrations are lumped under the "personal fanart" tag and further organized by more specific tags. This is where I'm most active and the best place to find my art, since I can keep everything well-organized. If you want to send me a message outside of FFNet, Tumblr is the best place to do it!
I'll be cross-posting any fics I manage to come up with to Archive of Our Own, since that website lets me link and post my illustrations directly in the text. My name is Garden_Eel over there, so check me out on Ao3 if you like that website's interface more! That's also my username on artfight . net, if you know what that is.
PLEASE NOTE: I don't write requests. I have a hard enough time parsing out my own ideas in writing, let alone anyone else's, sorry.
Stuff you'll see in my writing:
1. Characters overcoming a lot of difficulty in order to grow
2. Platonic, queerplatonic, and familial relationships
3. Action and adventure!
4. Content warnings by chapter for those who need them. Mostly for violence and injury.
Stuff you won't see in my writing:
1. Romance. Not unless you count occasional established canon relationships. There are plenty of people who relate to romantic attraction and enjoy writing about it, so I'm not going to force myself to.
2. Sexual content. Again, don't relate to or enjoy it, not going to write it.
3. Deep angst or drawn-out whump. I'll write a certain amount of pain and strife, but I like to keep things from getting too emotionally dark and navel-gazey for too long.
4. Power fantasies. If a protagonist under my pen ever becomes OP, it's because they climbed uphill in the snow both ways for 100k words to get there, and they aren't going to get a swelled head about it.
Profiles for the Harry Rainbow in HP:FSA
For the purposes of this summary, "aggro" is aggressiveness in battle, "temper" is how likely they are to pick fights with people (either within their group or to defend their brothers/friends), "magic" accounts for knowledge of conventional spells (and later on, knowledge of Hylian enchanting magic), "grace" is both stamina and the ability to avoid damage, and "HP" equals pain tolerance. The stats I give them here are just a general idea of where their strengths lie.
Green: Green is normal Harry, but with more of a drive to throw himself into danger and investigate weird goings-on. He's the one doing all the sword practice, so he has the highest level of skill. While he's usually in charge, he isn't the most confident and will sometimes step back to let Blue or Red take control of a situation. Like Yellow, he tends to shut down fights within his group. He's the only Harry that can speak/read Hylian and the second-best at academics, so he's usually the one helping Blue with his latest topic of study. His magic-boosted environmental awareness gives him an edge in navigating dungeons, but he isn't the most physically adept of the Harrys.
Stats: aggro=7/10 temper=4/10 battle skill=9/10 magic=5/10 intelligence=6/10 grace=7/10 HP=7/10
Yellow: If he seems ditzy and harmless because he uses childish speech and has trouble focusing on schoolwork, good—that means it's working. While Yellow is genuinely a sweet boy, he also exaggerates his cheerfulness in an act of calculated risk avoidance. He isn't just an innocent kiddo who's too cute to stay mad at; he's very intentional about disarming potential conflicts and deflecting questions he's uncomfortable with. He can be scary if he's pushed to defend his friends or brothers, including holding them back from their own poorly thought-out decisions. Yellow enjoys quietly people-watching from a comfy blanket-nest in the Gryffindor common room.
Stats: aggro=3/10 temper=2/10 battle skill=5/10 magic=6/10 intelligence=7/10 grace=9/10 HP=10/10
Blue: Blue has all of Harry's drive to learn about things beyond the tiny world of his cupboard, combined with a surprisingly hot temper. He's possessive of his books because he has trouble trusting others, but he enjoys telling people about what he's learned. Blue loves to argue and hates to lose, which can make him difficult to get along with. Even so, he's fiercely protective of his brothers and friends and quick to square up in their defense. He's confident and good at planning/tactics, but easily distracted and impulsive when it comes to acquiring new knowledge, so he's the second-in-command of the Harrys.
Stats: aggro=5/10 temper=8/10 battle skill=4/10 magic=9/10 intelligence=10/10 grace=5/10 HP=4/10
Red: Patience and emotional intelligence balance out Red's hotheadedness. He's ruthless in battle and has little tolerance for adults talking down to him, but he's more willing to shrug off insults than Blue and less likely to be rude in return. He's bicker-buddies with Blue, since they both speak their minds and are often on opposite wavelengths. Red works best as emotional and physical support for the group because while he's confident enough to lead, he isn't great at tactics. He has a particular fondness for pretty things/places and is willing to take a lot of weirdness in stride.
