    Summary

    It turns out that the death of the Calamity doesn't prevent more things from falling apart.

    A year after the fall of Calamity Ganon, eighteen year old Link goes back in time to before the end of the world, before the fall of Hyrule, before he ever even drew his sword, and starts to fix things before they can go wrong. It takes a while before he realizes he might be able to regain pieces of himself, too.

    Summary

    “How do you feel?” the Zora pressed after a very long moment, rocking forward just a little, eyes wide with worry. Her hands and arms were painted in soul paint of varying shades and colors, all plainly visible in her loose outfit. There was one particular streak of grass green on one of her palms, one that felt somehow intimately familiar.

    Link blinked at her, and discovered that his mouth didn’t want to speak the way hers did. His hands moved to do it instead, as if on instinct. I feel tired. What happened? Where are we?

    “We’re in the Shrine of Resurrection,” the Gerudo interrupted, sweeping in beside the Zora and setting a firm hand on her arm. Her eyes were narrow and uncompromising, though still, Link thought, warm. There was a child-sized smear of bright sunshine yellow soul paint on her cheek, and just a few scattered over her hands. “It’s no wonder you feel tired, you’ve been through quite an ordeal. But it’s time to get back to work.”

    Link blinked at her, blankly bemused.

    Who are you? he asked, in signs he seemed to recall only as he used them.

    Summary

    After everything he's been through, Link sometimes just wants to take it hard, fast, and with a damn good fight leading up to it. And there aren't a whole lot of people better to get that from than from the devil that's the only one who ever patched Link up before he used him.

    Sebastian has always wanted to pick a fight with the hero of the goddess, and it's a lot more appealing now that he gets a fuck out of it too.

    Summary

    The river is bathed in the blood moon’s dark glow, which makes it a bit hard to see. (So much for his Sneaky River Snail search. Thanks again, Calamity Ganon.) Link steps carefully out of the water and crouches, then quietly inches forward towards where the river was disturbed. He expects to see a newly resurrected moblin or something of the like - inconvenient, but simple enough to deal with.

    He does not expect a person. Especially not a person with on-fire leaves in their hair who appears to be covered in blood.

    He wonders if this is how other people feel when they see him traipsing around Hyrule. If so, he understands their reactions now.

    ---

    Or: Zagreus is curious and wants to explore other places, Link is a hard person to disturb, and an unlikely friendship is born.

    Summary

    A quiet camping trip set between the rescue of the Champions and the invasion of Akkala Citadel, in an AU where the Zelda and Link of the future came to help as well. In many ways, Link thinks that he and his future self are exactly the same person. But the differences he notices are... worrying.

    Or: a character study of the differences between pre- and post-Calamity Link.

    Summary

    A hundred years ago, a mother with two children who cannot speak commissions a bracelet for each of them, so they can show it to people if they need help.

    Today, Link brings his sister's bracelet to Zelda and asks if she knows who it belongs to.

    (Sometimes it seems like every day Link learns of something else that he's lost - something else his amnesia cost him, something else consumed by the Calamity, something else that is gone.)

    Summary

    One of the first places Link takes Zelda after the fall of the Calamity is to Kakariko, where Impa has been waiting for her for a very, very long time. He can't bring himself to stick around for more than a few minutes, and he's not entirely sure why Zelda thinks he would.

    Impa is not his friend.

    Summary

    Zelda remembers how Link looked during their run to Fort Hateno: bone white with pain, fingers trembling even as he stayed on his feet and on his guard, rigid with tension and determination. Zelda had worried constantly, not just about her kingdom but about him, about the rips in his clothes and the burns starting to litter his skin, the way he refused to let go of his sword. By the end she had started to wonder how he was still conscious.

    The way he looked now, it reminded her vividly of those terrible days.

    Summary

    Mipha and Link steal a few days away from their respective duties to weather Link's rut, alone in a little cabin over the cliffs save each other's company.

    Summary

    And some time after that, a young Prince Sidon of the Zora decides to make a name for himself by killing the beast.

    Summary

    A moment of clarity. A drop of water in a clear pool. The whine of the Sheikah pedestal, the sweet chime of a drop of condensed magic falling into, not the Slate, but a phial. Link drinking the phial. Purah’s sweet child-like voice. “With this, you should have no trouble reaching that shrine of yours, Linky. Just come back to me after so that I can study the results!”



    Link just can't leave well enough alone so Purah works some experimental Sheikah magictech, transforming him into a Zora. He heads to Zora's Domain to recover and figure out his new body.

    Eventual Sidon/Link if I can get there. Lots of self-indulgent description, navigating cultural differences, and exploration of body.
    Link is still a bit addled from the Sleep of Restoration. This might get a bit angsty. Mikau's spirit guides. Link gets past-life feelings (but not full flashbacks).

    I was inspired by TriforceAngel's Gentle Waves of the Heart.

    Summary

    (This series is inspired by a post by amaranthinepoetry on Tumblr)
    Zelda was raised as a Gerudo, the daughter of the chief. It's all she's ever known: the desert, safety from sandstorms and monsters within the walls of Gerudo Town, the town only for vai- with the exception of a voe named Ganondorf, a bit older than herself- and only populated by Gerudo. She's never even considered the idea that she herself is not a Gerudo.
    All of this shatters like glass when she meets Link- a Hylian, not vai or voe, raised as a Rito, who Zelda rescues from a sandstorm.
    Because this young Hylian has something which Zelda recognizes on their back. A sword in a violet sheath with the Triforce on it, specifically. The legendary Master Sword.
    Why does she recognize it?
