Cap's Early Fan Fiction and More!

Believe it or not, I actually do things that aren't Captain Gamer... and even some things that aren't gaming!

... I'll give you a few moments to fully register that.

Okay, first of all, I come from humble beginnings from a fanfiction.net account. It's a great place for humor, horrid for serious stories unless your networking skills are top notch. Anyway...

Captain Gamer on fanfiction.net. I link to it because there's actually some interesting things here, including how blamed long it's been since I've been to that profile. Namely, a dozen or so scrapped fan fiction ideas. I so badly wanted to do Final Fantasy Elites and Pocky and Rocky 1 1/2, too. =X

The Legend of Zelda: Shackles of Memory.
"A young man with no memory arrives at the Romani Ranch. Who is he? Where did he come from? This is what he wants to find out."
This story has no Link or Zelda, but I do focus on the oft-neglected world of Termina. Since the play mechanics and story of Majora's Mask placed you in Clock Town as a citizen, not as the great hero, it was a lot easier to get to know and feel for the characters. As much, I created a story based around it. The storyline itself is intriguing, if I do say so myself. My first semi-serious fan fiction, and the first piece of literature I put my heart and soul into. It really shows.

Sonic Evolution.
"When a new team begins collecting Chaos Emeralds and taking out anybody who would stand in thier way, it is up to the remaining heroes to team up and combat this threat!"
Burn me in effigy if you must, but I liked Sonic Heroes. In a time when my love of Sonic games peaked, I wrote and I wrote. The timeline has gone way past the events following Sonic Heroes, so I'm forced to make this after Heroes and before Shadow the Hedgehog, which is actually better for the canon. It's also heavy on romance concerning unconventional couples... I think the story is worth it alone just for that!

Now, something non-gaming! But it's still along the same vein.

Am I crazy for thinking that the Japanese care about the opening sequences in their shows more? I've always loved the fourth(?) Naruto OP, "GO!!!" best known for its refrain "Fighting Dreamers."

Right here, I've written an English song for GO!!! This isn't a translation, it's the same song with the same meaning, but with English lyrics for English-speakers written by me while looking to translated versions of the song for reference.

GO!!!
Homage with English Lyrics

We are fighting dreamers, setting our goals way high
Fighting dreamers, seeing with only our mind’s eye
Fighting dreamers, be-lief in ourselves is our dri-ive
Heey, yo hey, yo he-ey, yo! Just go my way!

Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)
Get it done, and find your fire!

Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)

These are unforgiving streets and no one’s sure where to head,
A pre-made path is secure, but is it any fun?
Well, your map of another’s path has been torn to shreds,
And without its guidance your legs seem to weigh tons.

Now that the map’s gone you can finally open your eyes and see that risk is not your foe! (Yeah!)
It has not ended, just begun, so get up and let’s go!

We are fighting dreamers, setting our goals way high
Fighting dreamers, seeing with only our mind’s eye
Fighting dreamers, be-lief in ourselves is our dri-ive
Heey, yo hey, yo he-ey, yo! Just go my way!

Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)

Shadows will arrive in the dead of the night,
And make what is to come seem uncertain and frightening.
The wind will blow us with wayward spite,
And force us to go along in fear with flashes of lightning.

Take up your sword to cut through the deceptions and travel onward to the truth and your future! (Yeah!)
We find challenge and not futility in that nothing is for sure!

We are fighting dreamers, setting our goals way high
Fighting dreamers, seeing with only our mind’s eye
Fighting dreamers, be-lief in ourselves is our dri-ive
Heey, yo hey, yo he-ey, yo! Just go my way!

Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)
Get it done, and find your fire!
Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)
Get it done, and find your fire!

We are fighting dreamers, like it or not, we are all friends
Fighting dreamers, exploring it all to every end
Fighting dreamers, with ambition that cannot bend
Heey, yo hey, yo he-ey, yo-!

We are fighting dreamers, setting our goals way high
Fighting dreamers, seeing with only our mind’s eye
Fighting dreamers, be-lief in ourselves is our dri-ive
Heey, yo hey, yo he-ey, yo! Just go my way!

(Don’t forget your first impulse ever)
(Let’s keep you adventurous forever)

(Don’t forget your first impulse ever)
(Let’s keep you adventurous forever)

Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)
Get it done, and find your fire!
Right here, right now (Bang!)
Taking off, along no wires!
Right here, right now (Burn!)
Get it done, and find your fire!
BAM!

Go ahead! Try singing it to the tune of the original song!

Comments and criticism on all things in this post will be happily recieved.

You wha?! How can you do things that are neither Captain, Gaming, or Captain Gaming!?

I'll look at the fanfics later, since they seem like they'd be long reads. I'm not even going to try singing along with a lyric like "Take up your sword to cut through the deceptions and travel onward to the truth and your future! (Yeah!)" though. XD

Why not? D=

Because given the rate of the japanese language along with shorter words meaning more complex things, there's basically no way could do it without mangleing the words a lot.

Ouch. Not even the benefit of a doubt for me, Koji? >.O

Actually I did give you that Cap. I was warning others about this. I know this stuff because I tried it. And it's always better to blame it on the dang Japanese language than to say you just suck at singing fast.

About a year ago, I mixed up my writing repertoire. First, with a satire. It's a short story about love. What kind of love is anybody's guess.

Companionship

Terrence loves Keesha. When Terrence saw Keesha for the first time, he described her to his bud as “one beautiful creature” and he knew he had to have her. Keesha had no objections, and the two of them hit it off well.

Since that day, Terrence and Keesha go out every day and have lots of fun together. Though the two of them enjoy their activities, most of their time is spent sitting together and enjoy each other’s company. Keesha is very energetic, but she doesn’t mind the complacency. She grew fond of Terrence quickly. While they sit Terrence amuses himself with stroking Keesha affectionately and occasionally kissing her on a whim. This was the indisputable sign that they had a good relationship. They are inseparable when together, except when something grabs Keesha’s attention. She tends to run off and let Terrence follow her when he notices her going someplace. Terrence doesn’t really like when she does this, but he doesn’t bother saying anything. Otherwise, the two of them have a wonderful relationship.

When it comes to other people, Keesha really has no say on who Terrence sees. Terrence, however, only lets Keesha see people he knows and trusts. His stance on strangers is a rigid one, to say the least. After all, taking interest is no weird thing. In fact, he was just a stranger to her when they first met. He mostly does it for her protection, but to be completely honest he really couldn’t imagine or bear the image of Keesha with somebody else.

Terrence and Keesha also love to fool around a lot. When they’re over at Terrence’s place, it’s pretty much guaranteed that at some point one of them will make bold move and they’ll be engaged in amorous combat for tens of minutes on end. Terrence is always up for a little playing around like that. For all he knows, so is Keesha. Sometimes she’s resistant for some reason, but every time one of them initiates, they have their fun.

At the end of a day of going out, sitting around, stroking, and kissing, they go their separate ways for the night. Terrence thinks about how wonderful Keesha is for a few moments before settling into unfinished work or just going to bed. He really doesn’t know what Keesha does, but this is one of those things that he feels he doesn’t really need to know. It doesn’t end there, sometimes. On occasion Keesha may want to return to Terrence to spend the night with him in sleep as well. Nothing more than just sleeping right beside him. Terrence commonly thinks of this as a little bit of a bother, but Keesha really seems to enjoy it, so he’ll bear it for her.

Now that we know Terrence and Keesha’s relationship in full, I would like to pose a question: Is Keesha Terrence’s girlfriend or his dog? I think I will leave this for you to figure out.

Next up, I have something I like to call "Undulation Poetry." My own unique poetic style using two distinctly different poems at once.

The first one is based off a person I observed.
The second inspired by, well, the poem says it right there.

A Dog’s Mother in Bloom
Your tact, Miss,
Rather, the lack thereof,
Stings like Hell.


A Short Poem I thought to Name “Responcycle”
A bottle on the Ground.
I still wonder why I was burdened to have found
That bottle on the Ground
Anomaly

...Captain, the end of Companionship really messed with my fragile mind for a sec there. Upon re-reading, though, it makes a lot of sense. I'm inclined to go with the dog, because otherwise, well, Terrence wouldn't be a very good boyfriend, now would he?
Koji_Tsunami

Woah! Holy Crap!

Captain, you just made my brain explode with that "companionship" story. I hadn't even thought about any possibility of her being his dog. I read that last line, and I was like "Woah! Holy Crap!"

Like some people when they found out Samus was a girl. Smile
Skybait J

In considerance of fantasy elements, Keesha could be both Terrances dog AND girlfriend <.<

As for Responcyle...its almost too short to a fault. I know its a short poem, but there just seems so much left just hanging there. It's good, but theres so much more to be done with it...It's almost like an attempt at meaning.

Or something...<.<

Didn't think this would ever get updated? Think again! And while you think again, read! And after you read, feedback!

... or not.

Good! now get to work on Sonic Evolution!
(You don't have to if you don't want.)
Now don't let Digital Defender become as forgotten as these Captain.
(that one's an order.)

... And now for something that needs to see the light of day before somebody else comes up with it.

Over at the edge of Hyrule Temple, a standoff of wills ensued. Specifically, Captain Falcon stood, representative of the higher tiers, and Link stood, precariously with his back to the near wall of the stage, of the lower tiers.

"A time of re-prioritizing is coming." Link concludes of his long and ominous warning. "The tides of the lower tiers will descend upon the upper-tier army. For far too long has only speed or disjointed hitboxes mattered. Do you not agree that it goes against the grain of the game that only so few characters can win with only so few strategies? Difference in skill is one thing, but why do you doom those whose preferences differ from what you represent?"

Falcon was unfazed by Link's rhetoric. "You threaten my people with massive reform only three months before a new installment can change it all?"

At this point Link had had enough and yelled, "This is alienation! This is madness!"

"Madness?" repeated Falcon with a mixture of amusement and being appalled. He cast a look backward. Peach was mussing with her hair, meaning she knew what was coming up and approved. Falcon turned back to Link.

"THIS! IS! MELEE!!!"

Captain Falcon quickly short-hopped into Link and immediately thrust his knee forward. With a loud WHOP! Link's body surged with electricity and the Hylian was sent directly into the near wall where a questionable fate took his stock, only marked with a burst of light.

Yes. That just happened.

Bump attempt go go!

Aborted VGCats holiday contest guest comic
Of course, VGCats, Leo, Aeris, and all else related are property of Scott Ramsoomair.

For those of you who don't know/remember, last year Ramsoomair held a contest to make a holiday (not necessarily themed) guest comic using pre-made character graphics he made available for download and editing.

I think you can tell what I was going for with what's there, and I was raring with a bunch of ideas. Unfortunately, once I ran through that bunch, as represented by the filled panels, No more came to mind no matter how much I tried.
Konoko

Hehe, very nice. :3
Kefka wasn't ancient evil though, was he? :p

Thinking about the blank places though, kinda trying to come up with a few things that could work for them. Hmm, for 4, the 4 wind shrines of FF5 and 4 Temples of Majoras Mask come to mind...or just the cardinal directions of the map compass/D-pad. 8 would work instead for one of those though, if including the secondary ones.
7 could be the number of video game console generations (according to wikipedia). Or the number of Sages in Ocarina of Time.
And any high number you had trouble filling in after doing the rest could be the number of different people named Zelda. Then the pair would argue over it. Its ambiguous enough. 6 for...sixaxis? *shrug*
Thats all I got though. XD
