    Summary

    Over 100 years...Zelda, trapped in a menacing, violent, torturous prison with Ganon...Link, no memories, no emotions, unsure of his purpose...and they are finally victorious.

    ...but now what? 100 years can change- HAS changed- everything. Who is she? Who is he?

    Set in Post-Calamity BOTW. This is intended to be a sequel to my story, Can't Be Tamed, but you do not need to read the first story to enjoy this one.

    This is my personal take on the events after Ganon's defeat. Any references to characters or BOTW elements belong to Nintendo.

    Updates every 4-6 days until complete :)

    Lemony parts are chapters 5, 6, and 9 if that’s what you’re here for!

    Summary

    The Calamity is defeated and our hero is still healing with a strange infected scar from the battle. But that's not the worst part.

Despite Link's reckless bravery, the strange infection is taking over his body faster than he can heal, even his beloved friend, Sidon, is at a loss for words. Link has made a silent vow that he will bring down the Yiga Clan once and for all before this infection finally kills him off.

    Summary

    Following the Hyrulean Civil War that tore West Hyrule and East Hyrule apart, King Rhoam struggles to maintain order during the great famine that comes as a result. He calls upon his old friend and companion Ganondorf Dragmire to serve as his Hand while an Eastern lord named Vaati claims to "desire peace" with the King.

    Meanwhile, a primal evil awakens from the ashes and calls to a young farm boy by the name of Link whose family was torn apart by war; a Twili queen stuck in a political marriage with a madman begins her search for a cursed mask; an assassin seeking justice for her family gains an unlikely ally in the Hyrulean Royal Family’s bodyguard; in the nearby land of Holodrum, General Onox seeks to destroy the kingdom that invaded his land; Ganondorf struggles to keep Rhoam’s ambitions under control; and thus a deadly war composed of five opposing kings begins.

     

    So: this is a Legend of Zelda AU combining every timeline and game in the LOZ universe. It is heavily inspired by Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire, and tells the tale of a disastrous war between five opposing rulers all fighting to control the kingdom Hyrule while the demons of old arise and threaten all living creatures.

    Summary

    Three years after the fall of the Calamity, peace has been all but restored to the land of Hyrule. With monsters dwindling in numbers, and the Yiga Clan in decline, travel and trade between Hyrule's lands is easier than ever. With Hyrule Castle and the surrounding town rapidly returning to its former glory, it has come time to finally crown Princess Zelda, now twenty years old, as Queen Regnant of Hyrule. Even after a century, the peoples of Hyrule are overwhelmingly in support of their princess' ascension to the throne. However, nothing good can ever stay. Just when everything is falling into place, the entirety of Hyrule is rocked on its foundations, as a ten-thousand-year-old curse is unleashed upon the land, leaving countless victims in its wake. Now, the united peoples of Hyrule must come together, find the source of this curse, and snuff it out. Pulling together a group of skilled warriors, scholars, scientists, and one thief-turned-escort, Princess Zelda and Link, the Hero of Hyrule, set out with their new team of champions into uncharted lands, in order to unlock an ancient mystery and stop this ruthless curse.

    Now just where do you come in?

    Summary

    Zelda awakens her powers in time to defeat Ganon, but there are still major losses. With Central Hyrule in pieces, two champions dead, a king out of commission, and half a metropolitan city turned refugees, Zelda and Link struggle to come to grips with the aftermath of the Calamity. Though neither are prepared, they must nonetheless learn to navigate a turbulent political landscape while a snooping journalist, an overzealous artist, and a power-hungry nobleman’s machinations turn their already topsy-turvy world on its head. Though the Calamity has been defeated, recovery proves a battle all its own; and that’s not even considering the battle raging in both their hearts. BoTW ZeLink AU.

    Summary

    Because of the rewrites of CoaFA becoming so massive, I have decided to migrate CoaFA into this, so that I can avoid writing chapters that are far too long or having to deal with the nightmare of trying to integrate new chapters between the old ones. Not everything will be posted in here all at once, but it will replace CoaFA once I am satisfied with the rewrites.

    Summary

    What would happen if Ganondorf wasn't the real villain of BOTW? What if he was simply a Gerudo king with a talent for magic, looking for an alliance with Hyrule, destined to carry the Calamity in his soul- but raised by Urbosa, who prevented this, unleashing the Calamity upon Hyrule? What if Ganon was locked inside the castle with Zelda, holding off the Calamity for 100 years, preventing Link from losing his memories?
    Oh yeah, and his spell to make all the monsters less dangerous makes them want to fuck things instead of kill them. So there's that. Link is not going to be happy.

    Summary

    After the Calamity left Zelda in the resurrection chamberrto recover, she wakes up to a desolate land she has no recollection of, only a deep seated sense of dread accompanies her as she moves through the land of Hyrule, determined to change its fate.

    This story is the sequel to By This Years End, which doesn't necessarily have to be read first but I would recommend it just so you understand what's going on. It is a novelization of Breath of the Wild told with Zelda as the hero of the wild.
