Sometimes I meet somebody without a passion for life
And it makes me want to light a fire beneath their feet
I probably won't get anywhere with them but
I've always been somebody that wants to try
Now trying doesn't always help me
Sometimes it even hurts me
But I always learn something that I didn't know before
It makes me a bigger, broader person
With more of a mind than I used to have
And really that's what it's all about

We Love You, Zelda (A Mother's Day Tribute)
Title: We Love You, Zelda!
Game: The Legend of Zelda
Collection: The Crack AU
Other Info: Hey all! This little ficlet is part of a series that takes place in an alternate universe where basically a lot of Links and a few Zeldas have traveled through time and space to live at the Hyrule Castle at the Twilight Era because of... reasons. You can click the link above for more info! Anyway, for the sake of preventing confusion, here is a list of my nicknames for all the Links and Zeldas. And a reminder of who Ferrus is, because everyone always forgets the poor guy.
Apolline- MC Zelda
Anneliese (a.k.a. Annie)- FSA Zelda
Bacchus- BotW Link
Belle- ALBW Link
Choochoo- ST Link
Cloud- SS Link
Ferrus- Remember that one NPC from Spirit Tracks? The train photographer? Yeah, I decided he's ST Link's boyfriend so he's here too.
Gramps- WW Link
Mini- MC Link
Nymph- Classic Link

She was right, and she resented it
My grandmother's hands have been worn by time
She's been dutiful since I've known her
And from her I learned how to purse my lips like a woman
Watch myself grow older, unhappier
Find a man that notices me
Let him spin me dizzy
Too drunk to question why my feet are mounting an altar
Except you know the other option is being alone
Be gentle, be kind, be understanding
He's worn down an uninterested
But he's there and he's the father of your children
And he kinda makes you recall your own father
Keep your back straight
You're terribly lonely, so people say you talk too much
All you've got is family, who can blame you for that?
When was the last time someone noticed how tired you are?
I'll be sure my granddaughters know
They can be right and resentful
Or selfish and alone

Paid in Full
(spoken)
He still thinks about love as if it were a transactional relationship
His logic is give and take
Baby you should know it don't work that way
Do you think your mother gave her own body to you because you could repay her?
You can't measure up care and support, my love.
Didn't your family ever teach you that?
(verse)
Unconditional
My love comes paid in full
I don't treat nobody like tools
Mama didn't raise no fool
I'm gonna lay down some rules
Raise up your glass
Only loyalty can pass
Love and respect give me class
Family keep me off of my ass
Work 'til I got a rash
Soak it in oatmeal bath
I don't come home for your math
I don't give a damn 'bout wraps
Put a nice bow on my ass
Call it a present
That's where it's at
Can't put a number on that
Only 7 digits on that
Hit ya girl up, I'm a bat
Flying to see where you at
I got your back
Just trust me, you got a knack
On grandmother's shelf click-clack
Treat me like family, that's tact
You want my best, I give it my all

Dear Father, King of Hyrule
    By the time you read this, should my plan succeed, I will be far outside of Hyrule Castle. This is not a decision I’ve made overnight, and it is not one I expect you will understand. Nonetheless, before you send your troops after me, please allow me to explain myself. Reflect carefully upon my words, and try to understand what I, your daughter, am feeling.

Today, Lately
    I'm in one of those moods. I finished my work today, 8 hours on a Saturday spent on something I normally don't mind so much. But on Saturday, I'd rather eat a fistful of firecrackers than go to work. I'm tired. I want to curl up on someone's lap like a child. When was the last time I was held like that? Probably not since I was small enough for daddy to hold onto me. Now I'm nobody's baby girl.
    Lately I can't shake this feeling of dissatisfaction. Writing feels like a chore, an effort. I try to listen to music. Songs that used to hit my core don't sound quite right. Like they kinda remind me of the feelings I used to get from them but something is missing. Like I've disconnected, and moved on, but I haven't found something new to move onto. I'm just stuck in limbo. It's like that thing Warsan Shire said. "You're a song I rewind over and over until I've memorized all the words and I feel sick."
    I can still play video games and enjoy it, but eigh

Sometimes I meet somebody without a passion for life
And it makes me want to light a fire beneath their feet
I probably won't get anywhere with them but
I've always been somebody that wants to try
Now trying doesn't always help me
Sometimes it even hurts me
But I always learn something that I didn't know before
It makes me a bigger, broader person
With more of a mind than I used to have
And really that's what it's all about
I'm gonna try hard not to make this into "bitch about not getting feedback" journal entry, because that's not what it is. There's a couple of y'all that are always supportive of my work and have something to say when I put something out there. You know who you are, and I'm indescribably grateful for you, and feel pleased knowing I was able to entertain you.

There's a few things I, at least, hope for when I put my writing out there. Not just on dA, which I understand is primarily a visual artists' platform, but also on other sites meant for writers. Sometimes, it is difficult to criticize myself because I cannot step back from my work. This is something I used to be fairly good at, but lately I've been so deeply immersed in my work it is difficult to criticize it properly. I know that I love what I'm doing. I don't know if other people love it. Grammar, spelling, sentence structure, hell even flow and what not are easy enough to edit. What concerns me is whether the concept of the story is interesting. For all I know the whole idea behind what I'm writing could be utterly stupid, and I'd be totally unaware.

You don't need to give a New York Times critical review to give feedback to a writer. What I want to know is something anyone can say. How did my work make you feel? Did your head rush, did your heart race? For a brief moment, did you feel like you were somewhere else, living another life? That's the magic of stories, after all, that when well-written they can make you feel like you're in another reality. Have I gained that power yet? I don't know. I really don't know.
This time next year I wanna be drawing my boys being ultra gay with each other.
Oh hai!
Today I tried sketching a guinea pig, my favorite animal! They're very fat and fluffy creatures, dumb but affectionate.

I've finished up other writing stuff, so now I'm back to doing these! Time for 10 more facts about my Links. As per usual, their bio information can be found here:

The Cast of the LoZ Crack AUThe Crack AU is my pet Legend of Zelda project. It is not a single fanfiction, but rather a collection of works detailing the lives of various Links and how they eventually come together, living together at the castle of Twilight Princess. It's a rather whimsical adventure, and I'm honestly not sure where I'm going with it. Anyway, here is where I keep track of my factoids related to the Links and other characters who take part in this story.
The Links
Link (The Legend of Zelda, Adventure of Link)
Nickname: NymphMyers-Briggs: INTPAge: 16Gender: MaleSex: MaleSexuality: Asexual (& Aromantic)Loves: Pink (platonic)Likes: Adventuring, traveling, tormenting BacchusDislikes: Restraint, being told not to torment Bacchus
Link (A Link to the Past, Oracle series, Link's Awakening)
Nickname: PinkMyers-Briggs: ENFPAge: 16Gender: FemaleSex: MaleSexuality: I'm too


Today's Link is Skyward Sword Link, also known as Cloud!

10 Facts about the Indisputable Doofus:

  1. He's very physically affectionate with friends (even more so with a lover). It's all hugs and kisses with him. Of course, he'll respect your personal space if you tell him to back off, though.
  2. His favorite fruit is strawberries! He also just likes somewhat tart fruits in general.
  3. Although he's naturally inclined to sleep in, lately he's actually been having issues with insomnia brought on by anxiety. This started during his rather rocky relationship with Pipit and worsened after their breakup.
  4. He was very quiet as a child because of teasing at school, but by nature he is very extraverted. Nowadays he almost never shuts up, and frankly it gets a little annoying.
  5. He's total BFFs with Zelda. She did have a crush on him while they were kids, but once he came out as gay she was very supportive of him and there's no hard feelings on that front. He's always had a particular soft spot for her. Unfortunately, while he was dating Pipit that bad relationship got in the way of their friendship. Add that to how busy Zelda has been with colonization of the Surface, and the result is that they've been pretty distant lately. Patching things up with her would be an easy matter if he'd just talk to her, however. After all, what are friends for?
  6. He's very sensitive to criticism, even if it's the truth.
  7. He can be very quick to forgive and forget, and certainly doesn't hold grudges. On one hand, this makes it easy for unscrupulous individuals to repeatedly do wrong by him, but on the other hand the kind of faith he shows in others often inspires them to be their best selves.
  8. He's very emotionally vulnerable. If something good happens he can fly high for the whole day, but likewise something bad could leave him seriously down in the dumps.
  9. He's very curious and eager to learn just about anything about anything, but sitting down and studying definitely isn't his thing. He'd rather be learning with his hands.
  10. Although he's not your traditional kind of reliable leader, his creative ideas and highly individualistic way of thinking mean he naturally finds himself in the spotlight quite often. Of course, not all of his shenanigans are successful, but life is sure to be interesting as long as Cloud is around.
And that's it for Cloud! Next up will be TP Link.

Today I'll be talking about WW Link, also known as Gramps!

10 Facts about the Uncontested Cinnamon Roll

  1. He kinda gets a power trip off of being called "Gramps." Even though he literally is ST Link's grandpa, is just feels nice being in charge.
  2. Soup is everything. What does he want for breakfast? Soup. Lunch? Soup? Dinner? More soup. Cloud's got the flu? Give him some soup. Bacchus is grumpy? He needs more soup. Time to face off rival pirates? Better get some soup first. Soup is life. Period. All hail the soup.
  3. He's definitely the most mature of the kid Links, and it makes him sort of their unofficial leader. He's more quiet and thoughtful than the others, so they naturally end up coming to him for advice.
  4. Unbeknownst to the other Links, he's actually asked Zelda Brigitte to tutor him in wind magic. She can only get him so far, considering it's not her specialty, but he's very dedicated to studying it on his own as well, and Zelda's been looking for someone else he could study under Like someone else from the Zelda universe who's extremely well versed in wind magic cough cough wink wink nudge nudge. In other words, yes, he wants to be a wind mage.
  5. He's naturally protective over others, especially those that seem vulnerable. No wonder he's been keeping an eye on Cloud.
  6. Growing up on a tiny island, he always felt a sense of longing for the kind of freedom he never really knew. Hence why he's loved traveling with Tetra and the pirates. Being at sea with the wind at his command gives him a happiness like no other.
  7. He cannot function without coffee. One mug before breakfast, one during, and one after is how he starts every day. And he likes it unadulterated.
  8. He likes to relax by studying maps. Scoping out potential treasure spots, or just studying tides and currents make for a favorite pastime of his.
  9. He's surprisingly shy, considerate and involved as he usually is around people he's familiar with. It just takes him a while to open up, but once he does you'll hardly find a more dedicated friend.
  10. His playful side may show the least often of all the kid Links, but it's definitely there! He's unlikely to be the instigator for any sort of romping though, and is much more likely to just go along with whatever the other boys are doing.
And that's all for the sweet kiddo! I'm actually not sure which Link I want to write about next, so I reckon I'll just ask whoever is reading this. OoT, Classic, TP, SS, ST, ALBW, and MC are all available. Who do y'all wanna hear about?

I was wondering how you added and developed the Links for your AU. I'm really impressed by the amount of detail you put into some of them.

As far as advice: well, I'm sort of in a bind with a Link that I'm writing. I'm trying to develop him like I would any other character, but when I actually write him he falls flat. I'm not sure whether that's because the story I'm writing is very fast-paced, or because I have a mental block that says he needs to be "Link-ish" and being Link-ish means not having a personality. I've never had any trouble developing personalities for any of the other characters in the fic, just this obstinate little idiot. xD

First of all, I just have to say that I'm really flattered. :D I hope I can help you.

I'd say to start with, you'll have to deal with the part of you that wants to make him "Link-ish." It's clearly limiting your creativity, which spells death to writing. Nintendo hasn't exactly been shy about doing new things with new Links (think of how expressive SS Link is in-game, for example, or the Holy Grail of facial expressions that is WW Link), so you shouldn't be either. Just worry about making him his own person, and I think you'll find that all the other things that make a Link a Link, his unshakable courage, reliability, and streak of recklessness, will naturally follow with pretty much any personality type. The more important thing to focus on is who he is, what his story is and how his life events might have affected him. Think of him like you would think about a friend that you miss, and don't be afraid to get attached. :D I won't hesitate to say that my Links (and Zeldas) are my children. While you're doing that, it'll also be good to thing about who you are and what cognitive strengths you have that you can use to your advantage. Taking a personal example, I'm an INFP with a strong preference in all four categories, so I definitely use my sensitivity and emotional intelligence to really "get" what's going on in my characters' head. This applies well to my OCs as well as my Links, even though my poor OCs are stashed in the closet for now. :giggle: Poor things. Anyway, the point is that it's easier to know other people if you know yourself, and know how you're likely to process the volume of information that comes with a sentient being. That brings me to my last point: even though they are just characters, within their own universe they are sentient beings and that will show best when they're treated as such. 

Well, I hope that helps somewhat. If I can help any more, or if you just need a soundboard while you're figuring out your stubborn little turd, feel free to shoot me a note. =)
