Author has written 9 stories for Golden Sun, Earthbound, Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, and Naruto.
While I can claim to have predicted a solar eclipse, and I know that heaven consists of whole numbers, my heart firmly believes that heaven does not consist of a single musical scale- it consists of four: Minor, Native American, Middle Eastern, and Medieval. I believe in the Songbird Ocarina as my savior. If you believe in it too and are not afraid to admit it, copy and paste this onto your signature. Or profile. I'm not really picky either way.
I am Dannondorf. It would be hilarious if that were my real name, but it's not. :( I know "Ganondorf" doesn't have a double-n, but I'm not changing my username; it comes from combining Ganondorf and Dannon yogurt, and it is an objective fact that Ganondorf/Dannon yogurt is the One True Pairing...followed closely by Stan/Goron Lady. XD
I've tried several times to start writing only fiction, but fanfiction is too much fun to give up! Like most of us, I came to this site to gain experience, improve, and indulge in my childish musings, so if you read one of my fics, please review it and tell me what you think. Whether it dazzled you, made you roll your eyes, or ruined fanfiction for you forever, let me know what I did right and what I could have done better. You will have my thanks.
Aside from writing, I'm into running, math, a cappella, soccer, dares, philosophy, marathons, experimenting in the kitchen, hugs, tutoring, Thai food (especially curry), the Wheel of Time series, video games, hiking, fanfiction (obviously!), overcast skies, the color green, yoga, solid-color t-shirts, video game competitions, IkeXSoren in Fire Emblem (the only yaoi pairing I've ever liked), flinging sweat from my fingers when it's hot, getting hyped for Elder Scrolls 5, good food, and good people.
Things I don't like: dressing up, cold weather, getting wet, closed-mindedness, clichés in stories, drawing (suck at it), stereotyping, Sonic's descent into mediocrity, waiting in slow food restaurants (I need food NAO!), people who use religion as a means of feeling superior to others, TV (too many commercials!), know-it-alls who jump at the chance to correct your grammar during casual conversation, violence, heights, wasting food, arrogance, ZeldaXLink, cauliflower, first-person shooters (I know, I'm a terrible person and I'm missing out), and people who don't value others' privacy.
No, I do not like Zelda as a love interest for Link. I don't even like her as a character.
I'm always surprised by how many people ship ZeLink. I never found Zelda that interesting or vital to the franchise. Hear me out before you disregard my opinion, though:
Presumably to give her some spotlight and develop her character a little, Nintendo gave Hyrule's princess large roles in Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker. Sheik's guidance was invaluable, but the moment Sheik revealed himself (or herself, or whatever) to be Zelda, Zelda got kidnapped. Similarly, Tetra did a great deal and I liked her character, but as soon as we found out she was actually Zelda, Link and the King of Red Lions hid her away and she ceased to be a main player. (Except for the final battle, but only participating in that and not any of the rest of the journey feels cheap to me.) I know that Tetra and Zelda are technically the same person and so are Sheik and Zelda, and I know it's silly to fault her for being kidnapped in the Temple of Time, but the way the stories have been told, it's like Zelda is completely incapable of aiding in a meaningful way unless she assumes an alter ego. (Interestingly, I think this is partly why some people insist that Sheik is his/her own person and not just a disguise.) In just about every game, she has a different excuse for being absent/boring: Zelda I, kidnapped pre-game. Zelda II, sleeping spell. LttP, hiding because every guard in the kingdom is after her. LA, not cool enough to be part of the Wind Fish's dream. OoT, hiding from Ganon and his minions. MM, kicking it in another kingdom. MC, turned to stone at the beginning of the game. And so on and so forth, with exceptions in the form of the CD-i games which we don't talk about. It's getting old, but I'm so numbed to it by now that I don't care enough to want to see more of her. A character who could have been interesting has been ruined for me.
I strongly suspect that most of the people who support this pairing do so simply because he's a hero and she's a princess. And normally I wouldn't have a problem with that since heroes and princesses often get together in stories, but she just doesn't do enough to make me care about her. Even though she's in almost every game and even though she has a connection to the main character through the Triforce, it feels to me like she's only there because she has to be, because she's part of the age-old formula. Hell, Link spends more time with Ganondorf than he does with her if you count the final battles in the games.

People always whine to their friends about how there are never any good guys/girls out there, and they always end up with jerks who mistreat them. Next time you're complaining, look up to see who you're complaining to, because maybe that special someone is right there, hanging on your every word as usual and wondering why you won't give them a chance.
Lesbians, gays, bisexuals, asexuals, queers, questioning, and transgenders are people too! Stop the hate and spread the love!
