    Summary

    Princess Zelda didn’t sleep. Link had tried everything he could think of to get her to rest. Sleep-inducing teas or elixirs, extra soft beds, extra firm beds, sleeping outside under the night sky, in a crowded inn, alone in his cottage, out by the sea with the calming sound of waves. But it appeared that the type of insomnia the princess suffered from was divinely stubborn. Rain or shine, cloudy or clear, she would always get up to sit cross-legged outside, leaning back on her arms, staring up at the sky until sunrise.

    Summary

    “I know you understand duty too well to believe your job is over, but, Link,” the King says his name, and Link becomes even more nervous, now. “You saved everyone in Hyrule. You deserve a vacation, don’t you think? Perhaps a title? Tell me how I can repay you for your service, please.”

    Link knows what he wants to ask for. He’s known for a while now, actually. He wants that house across the bridge in Hateno Village, the new one. He wants the black castle horse, Charcoal, who he’s ridden ever since being assigned to his current post. Most of all, he wants to take a certain blonde Princess with him to that house in Hateno on the back of that black horse, so she can spend her days at Purah’s tech lab and her nights in his arms, and he never wants to have to leave her ever again.

    Even if by some Goddess-given miracle, the Princess wanted Link the way he wanted her, and the King was somehow okay with that, he doesn’t think the King would give him that.

    Summary

    She can feel fingers comb through her dirty hair, a voice trying to soothe her, but Zelda can’t stop crying, no matter how hard she tries.

    No, don’t, she tries to say, don’t, you shouldn’t touch me, I’m wrong – something’s broken.

    or: a post-calamity exploration into religious trauma

    Summary

    Princess Zelda sacrificed everything 100 years ago so her people could live. Now that Ganon is defeated, Zelda faces more challenges than she had in the past: her return has thrown the kingdom's politics into question, her sealing powers are out of control, and Link- her appointed knight and the Hero of Hyrule- barely remembers her or the feelings they shared 100 years prior.

    This is technically a sequel, BUT you don't need to read the previous one to follow this fic!

    Summary

    Summary

    A work exploring the events that took place before the calamity- detailing Link's chaotic ascendance into the royal guard, his first meetings with each of the champions, Zelda, and the people who raised him. [Complete!]
     

    "Link tossed the sword down. It stayed upright, embedded into the dirt and mud. He wanted to tell her just how desperately he’d wanted to reject it and put it back into its pedestal. The way he ran and lied, and was still lying. King Rhoam was the one who insisted the truth be buried, but Link didn’t utter a word of protest. He may have come clean, but he had no intention of coming clean to all of Hyrule.
     
    He felt he didn’t owe Hyrule anything.

    But the question remained, just how much did he owe Zelda?"

    Summary

    She shouldn’t have looked. Zelda can’t stop chastising herself for it afterwards, cursing herself for her deadly curiosity.

    Rather than Link impaling a variety of monsters with his silly purple sword, he instead has a very different sword in hand and is certainly not slaying anything with it.

    -

    Zelda accidentally catches an eyeful, gets angry, and then gets even.

    Summary

    A work exploring Hateno and a makeshift sanctuary.

    Her basket's on the table, palms on either side of it. The house dark. Dim.

    The door hasn’t closed behind her. Zelda turns her head, peering through windswept hair. Light pours in behind him: his silhouette standing there on the threshold of his own home like a vampire awaiting an invitation. She almost laughs at the sight. The man who cut the Devil to pieces is scared to follow after a woman with a chip on her shoulder? How far they’ve both fallen.

    “It’s your house,” she points out.

    Permission to enter. He does even though it’s not hers to give. It’s only a few steps, of course. Can’t break the rule. Five feet. Always five feet apart. The door closes.

    She wants to break something. An old habit’s under heavy consideration.

    Summary

    Link’s life is fairly mundane: run errands, clean the horses’ stalls, and spy upon the training soldiers at the military camp with the hope of joining them someday. But recently, his dreams have been less about shining armour and more about dark green forests and little leaf creatures that tinkle like bells when they float away from him.

    One day, the King sweeps into camp, bringing along the princess on her snowy white horse. He declares that one of them will become the next hero of Hyrule. Link has little interest in prophesies, but he needs to discover what waits for him in the Lost Woods.

    Note: This could be interpreted as Link/Zelda but only if you're looking for it. They’re just a couple of 7th graders who’ve known each other for less than 24 hours, after all.

    Summary

    “You’re bathing in the Spring of Power,” she says, smiling because it’s ridiculous and feral behavior, and part of her wonders with glee about it all. “You’re swimming naked in a sacred place.”

    He gives her a devilish grin that stokes a small flame inside her and proudly says, “Fuck Ganon.”

    “How did you find me?”
    “I didn’t find you. I saw a stranded car. I thought someone needed assistance.” He jutted his thumb towards his own vehicle, a large lifted truck that looked suitable for a lumber yard, and said, “So I came to investigate.”
    She blinked up at him, then pithily said, “Of all the snowblown roads in all the world.”

    Or, Zelda is stranded in a snowstorm and gets rescued. Smut happeneth.

    Summary

    Zelda, in that second, realized she wanted to remember that moment forever. A thought occurred to her, and she quickly took out the Sheikah Slate and snapped a photo from the loft. Link still didn't remember much from before the Great Calamity, but perhaps they could create new memories: memories of him, her, and their little Hateno home. A look into a year with Link and Zelda.
