Once upon a time, there lived a gal named Jae with a good deal of extra time on her hands. In said free time, she wrote two, count 'em, two shipping manifestos. Admire them!
I wrote my first Ganondorf/Malon essay in 2005 and very early 2006, but it was based on stories that I had been writing since 2001 or so. I re-read it in late 2006, and wasn't impressed with my words. So, a second attempt was started and completed on January 29, 2007.
Please note: neither essay has been beta'ed.
