Author has written 7 stories for Tokyo Mew Mew, Legend of Zelda, and Walking Dead.
None of the links on my profile work so don't bother clicking on them. Copy & paste. If only they'd stop screwing around with the formatting on this site.
Status as of July 2016: Making progress on fics again! Namely Customer, but maybe I'll update Dismissed too. Why the heck not.
I know I've been less active lately, but just want everyone who's into Not Always Right to know I'll never give up on it. You know your story's a keeper if it's been three years and you're still fond of your work, haha. My problem is I don't have as much time to write as I used to, and with original projects and other hobbies occupying the free time I do have, it sometimes gets difficult for me to stay focused on writing. I'm sure as Breath of the Wild inches closer to release, my obsession with the series will make a comeback and I'll be able to get into more of a rhythm with it. But for now, just know it's always in my thoughts and I'll get around to finishing it one day. Sorry for being trash at updating.
For My "Customers": Here's the link to the personality quiz I was talking about in Chapter 15 -

16 Questions in all, but I tried to make them fun! And the link is safe, despite what the little box that pops up may lead you to believe.
Not Always Right was featured on Zelda Informer in October 2014! Here's the link to the article if you'd like to take a look: www.zeldainformer . com/news/fan-fiction-friday-on-saturday-the-customer-is-not-always-rightD
Hunger Games People: If anyone's interested, my old SYOT character creation guides were relocated to my sis's blog: hoprocker-hunger-games.tumblr.com. I was tired of them cluttering my profile, so we moved them over there.

I read and treasure all reviews I receive! Even the one-liners. It's always nice knowing people are out there liking what they're reading. :D
Heads up that I respond to reviews via PM, unless a guest asks a question and I can't send them a message. I just feel uncomfortable responding in author's notes because I don't know...I feel like I could be making the reviewer uncomfortable by putting them on the spot?? Especially if they give criticism. So don't be freaked out if you see I replied to you in your inbox, this is just my way of going about things. I also love when people respond to my reviews, so don't feel like you're annoying me by chatting me up. :D
I don't read a ton of fanfiction because I'm kind of a lazy reader and I just have problems finding stories that appeal to me. But I do make an effort to review the stories I stick with past the first couple chapters. I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I do try to stick to this as much as possible. I don't give constructive criticism too often unless the author asks for it in a note though, because I don't like to run the risk of pissing people off or wasting time giving advice to someone who doesn't care. Just remember: if I reviewed your story, even if I was critical, it means I LIKE WHAT I'M READING. I wouldn't read/review a story I didn't like at all, because what the fudgesicles. I don't have time for that.
The stories near the top are the ones I have faith in and would recommend to people. Everything else below is either garbage or me learning how to write.
The Customer Is (Not) Always Right, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Main Project, IN PROGRESS)
This is a sitcom in novel form starring Rupin from Skyward Sword, told in 1st person sarcastic-stream-of-consciousness. And of course, it spotlights many of Skyloft's quirky residents as irritating customers. It was going to be my side project to help keep me fresh while writing "Masquerade" (don't read Masquerade it sucks), but then it ended up being the most fun thing I've ever written in my life. Ever. So now it's my main project. I think Rupin is a character a lot of people can relate to, and he's an absolute joy to write. I chose to write this story in 1st person because the it's the best way for the reader to experience Rupin's inner and outer worlds at the same time, and for me to squeeze as much humor out of every situation as I can. I also like this fic to feel like it maybe could have actually happened parallel to Link's adventure on the surface, so it sticks pretty close to canon events. But it does have an overall whackier tone than what you might expect from the game.
Seinfeld is my biggest inspiration for this fic since the humor is largely drawn from the minutiae of everyday life, only with a customer service flare. And of course, laughing at other peoples' expense. It uses a similar approach to Seinfeld's comedy too. I forget what's it's called. Basically you feel like a friend to Rupin because he's telling you all the horrible stuff on his mind and you can relate to his plight. Yet you feel superior to him because you are (most likely) a better person than him. And that subconscious feeling of superiority makes you feel great. Now I'm digging way too deep into psychological things, but you probably get the point by now. It was my intention to write a character that the average reader would find themselves loving one moment and hating the next.
Pairing(s): There is some one-sided Rupin/Peatrice, although I don't like to slap that onto the summary because I think that doesn't really give off the right impression. It places too much importance on it. The romance thing is just a subplot and not really the main focus of the story, you know?
Current Progress: 22/35 Chapters.
I'm pretty much done coming up with new ideas for this fic, so it's definitely going to round out at 35 chapters. I just have to finish writing them all, which will take a while.
Updates: This story has become a miniature monster at over 30 chapters, but it's a manageable one thanks to the plot being relatively simple. It'll take some time to finish, but I definitely will get there one day. I might take breaks from this fic but I promise you it WILL be done one day. It's my baby.
Dismissed, The Walking Dead
THIS FIC omg. It just sort of came into being one day when my distaste/frustration with the Walking Dead prequel game and my love for Merle and Daryl Dixon exploded at the same time. The thing started out as a one-shot but now I'm extending it and trying to incorporate some honest characterization for my favorite bros into it. Mostly focuses on Daryl but expect a pretty decent dosage of Merle upcoming.
Current Progress: 1/6 chapters. You never know when I might pick up this piece of trash again.
Carol of the Birds, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Seasonal Project, TEMPORARY HIATUS)
Retelling of A Christmas Carol featuring Rupin in Scrooge's role. Kind of a holiday special for The Customer Is (Not) Always Right. There will be 5 chapters in all, just like the original, but I wouldn't expect this to play out exactly like A Christmas Carol if I were you. This is more me using the scenario to for the sake of some extra character development than anything. The characters don't all fit perfectly into the original roles.
Current Progress: 2/5 Chapters. I'll likely reboot this story at some point because I really did want to finish it. I say reboot because the first two chapters really need to be rewritten...>.
The Potion Brewer's Husband, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (ONE-SHOT)
Just a one-shot peek into the life of Bertie that demanded to be written for whatever reason. Kind of dark and melodramatic with over the top angst to the point of being laughable. I don't know. I just had to write it.
Because He Left, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (ONE-SHOT)
A one-shot I wrote for a gift exchange. I don't think it's bad, but I don't really love it either. I just kind of get an unfulfilled feeling when I think about it, but I'm not really sure what I could have done to make it better. Meh, whatever. It made the person who requested it happy and that's what counts.
MASQUERADE, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (DISCONTINUED)
Masquerade sucks and I wrote it when I was a stupid, whiny teenager who missed LOST desperately.
Current Status: Abandoned.
I'm fond of the opening piece, but kind of wish I took it in a different direction. This was my first serious attempt at writing fanfiction, and at the time I didn't have a good grasp on the scope of my idea and exactly how much work and commitment it'd actually take to pull it off. (A LOT) That's part of the reason it failed. I don't regret writing Masquerade though, because I learned from the experience and it helped me figure out my strengths and weaknesses as a writer.
A Series of Unfortunate Events, Tokyo Mew Mew (Garbage from my middle school weeaboo days)
Because I'm a strong believer in not deleting old stories purely for being embarrassed about them. That being said, DON'T READ THIS IT'S A PIECE OF CRAP. The conception of this story is an unfortunate event in of itself. Seriously, unless you're looking to kill off some brain cells, don't click on it. I'm warning you. It's not worth it.
I haven't deleted it yet because...well actually, I don't know why I haven't deleted this mess. I tried to once. I was one click away from doing it, but for some twisted reason I just couldn't. Maybe because of nostalgia, and because as hard as it is to believe, somebody, somewhere...probably still likes this thing. And now you're going to click on it because your curiosity has been piqued. Shame on me. And you.
I'd also like to add that this...thing...is NOT an accurate representation of my writing skills when I was in 7th grade. I like to think I was better than that. It'd be more fitting to say this is an accurate representation of my convoluted sense of humor at that time. What on Earth was I thinking.
Pairing(s): Keiichiro x Ponypie. Mmhmm. Don't say I didn't warn you.
This is my community for underappreciated Zelda characters that I don't manage properly. I don't know if many people use communities to find fics, but that's half the reason I made it. As an experiment to see if anyone actually uses communities. (Update: THEY DON'T! WOOOOO Well, not that much anyway.)
Authors whose stories I added - I didn't feel it was necessary to go to the hassle of messaging you about adding your fics beforehand, since this is basically just a recommendation list. It's not like I'm throwing your stories into a "hey, these people suck!" pile. But if for whatever reason you would prefer that I remove your fic from the community, politely let me know by PM and I will remove it as soon as I can. If I reviewed and/or fav'd the story, it's safe to assume that I was the one who recommended it. If not, then somebody else recommended your story to me. I'm not necessarily interested in every minor character in Zelda, so I may have just skimmed if it was very long. Sorry.
That is all. Thanks for reading.
