First off I’m obviously MetalshadowN64 (call me Bryan, KiNG, or Metal if you wish) I’m 22 (23 in a few months from the time this is being written) and honestly I sorta want to be a writer, but I’m a bit lazy in the department so I’m still sorta figuring where my talents lay at this point. I often fall off the face of the planet with updates on anywhere since I mostly just ride on my moods. If I’m in a writing mood I’ll likely post a few chapters of something (currently my Zelda fanfic series, but its almost over now…), but usually I’m just doing my own thing and I only really make an appearance on the net when I see a need to.
I’m pretty big into games, but I’m also a big anime/manga geek. I’m not gonna really bother listing all the games and animes I like since it’s a good sized list and it’s something I’d need to pointlessly update later. So basically the only major favorite games I have are LoZ: Majora’s Mask, Megaman Legends, Doom 3, Battlezone (1998), Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, Tales of Vesperia, and Skies of Arcadia. Animes are as follows: Steins;Gate, Eden of the East, FMA: Brotherhood, Case Closed, Ghibli movies, and various others. I don’t watch much “regular” TV anymore but I’ve been a Star Trek fanatic since I could walk, and I like M*A*S*H a lot. Favorite movies are as follows: Back To The Future trilogy, all Star Trek movies, and Castle in the Sky.
My Favorite books are “The Killer’s Cousin”, “And Then There Were None”, “Doom 3: Worlds on Fire”, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, Sherlock Holmes stories, and “Metal Gear Solid” (yes; the book adaption)
I can be pretty opinionated, but I always try to keep an open mind to anything. I tend to swear on occasion (I used to do it a lot more, I think) and this is reflected in my stories. I don’t drop F-bombs everywhere, just in parts I feel that could use it (usually in times of anger and such). I consider myself agnostic with a touch of fatalist (belief in fate/destiny) mixed in.
In terms of my writing style I notice I don’t write that much action and I tend to focus on drama and very little fantasy - so no characters who can go “OVER 9000!” at any given moment from me. Lately I’ve been writing shorter stories since I lack the patience and concentration to do long stories. I like to focus on family – especially relationships between fathers and their sons. But I also like to dabble in some romance and tragedy.
Like some fan-fiction writers I do have some original story ideas floating around in my head but nothing really worth mentioning atm. I am primarily sticking to game fan-fictions, but I am expanding my range to animes.
My stories that are currently in-progress at this time are:
“Final Memories” – this will be the final entry in my Zelda fan-fic series. The first chapter is the only one posted till the story is completed and looked over. It will be short though. I will admit right now I think I was partially inspired by Assassin’s Creed: Revelations with this one. There will be NO action in this story; it will be a drama focusing on family from start to end… the bitter sweet end that I hope you will enjoy when it is completed. Interesting note that all the chapter titles will be names of songs.
“The Unwalked Path” – This DBZ story is pretty much the telling of Goku’s life if he was raised on Planet Vegeta instead of Earth. As it is told to Goku by Kakarot (I may do a Goku VS Kakarot fight at the end) It will mostly cover the Bardock movie, some aspects of young Kakarot’s life and the Frieza saga. I don’t know if this will exactly fit everyone’s bill due to how I intend to have Kakarot’s character… let’s say he’ll be an idealist and leave it at that for now. I have most of the story for this set in my mind so it hopefully shouldn’t take very long to complete – 6 months to a year considering the rate I’m writing this and my usual speed.
“Doom: Heroes Rise” – I’ve been writing and rewriting this story (very slowly I may add) since High School (that was over 4 years ago). Its currently on hiatus till the Zelda story is done and when I have enough interest to work on it. It will not be dumped though. It will be done. Oh there is a few chapters here already, but most of what’s already done is only on my site. When I do get back to it I will be going over it and fixing it up.
“Megaman Legends” – a novelization of the game simply. Its on a strictly “work on it when I feel like it” basis. I consider this in the back of my priorities so it doesn’t get updated very much.
“Drifters” – an original story made by a friend. Me and another friend plan to help out in starting this story back up from scratch whenever we get a chance to sit down and talk about it. I’m not sure what’s the plan regarding where it’s gonna be posted though.
3 original short stories – these are only on my site and DA. I wrote them in High School, most of them are set in WWII (I’m a history buff you see). Nothing to really write home about.
“Give a Reason” – did this almost within one day when I took a break from “A Final Tale” at the time. Its short, very little drama and action. You can read it here, on my site, and DA. Its set after Majora’s Mask but before “I Reach Out a Hand”, “A Final Tale”, and the to-be-completed “Final Memories”. So if you’re gonna be reading my Zelda stuff start from here.
“I Reach Out a Hand” – I finished this recently. This is set in-between GAR and AFT. It’s also shortish (mostly caused I rushed the ending) but it is longer than GAR. So read this second.
“A Final Tale” – my first major story that I have ever finished. I like to think this is the ‘meat and potatoes’ of my Zelda fanfic series. (I need to come up with some type of name for it I swear). This is the second-to-last entry for my little series. Ironic since it was the story that started this whole series. “Final Memories” will be following this.
Planned for the Future:
“I Have Learned” – this will be a crossover story between the animes “Steins;Gate” and “Eden of the East”. I only have prototype ideas at this point for the plot which will be basically; that on a timeline in which Taki failed at stopping the deaths of thousands on Careless Monday, he later by chance meets Okabe and co, learns of their text-based time machine and tries to convince Okabe to let him send a text back to himself to prevent the deaths. The title of the story is also WIP actually, its from the song “I Have Learned” by Barenaked Ladies which I happened to use for a mediocre Steins;Gate AMV some time ago. If I ever do this idea is still up in the air.
“Stronger Than Me” – Its an original story idea that is based on a dream I had. Basic plot idea is that a young man encounters an older man that claims to be him that has traveled back in time. The older man wants to help his younger self avoid a fate so terrible. Title is WIP, taken from the song “Stronger Than Me” by the band Hardline.
