    Summary

    Having forgotten his past once, after waking from his hundred year slumber, Link keeps a journal as to not forget again. As he journeys to save Hyrule he's confronted with his past, present, and future. Making new friends only to leave them, grieving his fallen comrades new and old, and dealing with a threat that seems to weigh on him even more than Calamity Gannon; his own fears of isolation and loneliness on this long tiring journey.

    A first person perspective of Link's personal journey as he saves the kingdom. Both the good and bad times, the highs and lows.

    series of daily unconnected BOTW one-shots, vaguely following the tumblr Linktober prompts.

    Summary

    Zelda has a scientific interest in the worms, that’s it. Riju is right--they’re out of place in the desert--the Gerudo have every right to be wary of their sudden appearance. And if surveying local fauna isn’t quite as thrilling or meaningful as battling the embodiment of darkness for a century, she’ll just take a deep breath and deal with it.

    Summary

    Inspired by mochidayo's high school au!

    Link encounters a mysterious boy at the archery range and can't get him out of his mind. Zelda can't seem to be enough for her father. Mipha carries the burdens of those around her while putting her own aside. Revali can't accept that love could be meant for him.

    "And perhaps something led him there, perhaps it was fate, perhaps it was just a coincidence, but in the clear afternoon light, Link felt something tug at his heart as the wind swirled around them. Their eyes locked, and he was met with the most brilliant green he had ever seen.

    Green...Was always my favorite…"

    Summary

    Summary

    Three years after Calamity Ganon is sealed away, Hyrule is beginning to mend itself slowly but surely. In reality, there's more time to breathe, but it feels like there's less oxygen.

    Zelda and Link explore how to come to terms with everything they've been through as they figure out how to be functional people in the world three years after Calamity Ganon is sealed away. Something that started out as a rewrite one-shot of some smut, but turned into something much more.

    Summary

    One hundred years has passed since Calamity Ganon returned to Hyrule, held back from devouring everything in his path by Princess Zelda. Only one person can save her and all of Hyrule: Link. The Hero chosen by the Master Sword. After one hundred years in a deep sleep, Link awakens to discover she is still the Chosen Hero but she doesn't remember who she is or why she fights, only that she must. As Link retraces her steps and frees the Champions, Link makes friends. With help from Paya, Sidon, Kass, Riju, and Yunobo, can Link stop Ganon and save Hyrule, this time without dying?

    (Major elements of the plot are the same, though I've taken many liberties to translate gameplay into storytelling. Also Link is a girl.)

    Summary

    One thing is studying war strategies on a book, another is learning on the battlefield. When Sidon realizes him and his people are truly risking to lose the war he finds himself relying on the wisdom of a tiny, angry hylian. With Link's people no longer allowed to sit in positions of power, let alone a war council, Sidon ends up sneaking his best strategist pretending it's his concubine instead, hopefully things will not get too bad...

    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. (characters will be added into the tags as they appear!).

    "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

    It's a bit weird, when you think about it. Who would've expected all of these strange characters to wind up in this place together? Sure, it had crossed his mind, but he was too busy having fun to really care. After all, home is where the heart is.

    His brain, on the other hand, is telling him to move out.

    Summary

    Born of their love came four more blessings: A King, a Queen, a Gift, and a Curse.

    At least that was what the Goddesses had told him, and as King Sidon looked out into the Domain, he was afraid of their prophecy coming true. He was prepared to do anything for his children. He was prepared to die for them. But as Sidon turned away from the window and looked into the mirror, he could only frown.

    Things had gotten so much more complicated in the last twenty-four hours.

    "Are you alright?" Link asked, wrapping his arms intentionally around Sidon's waist.

    "I'm...scared," Sidon admitted, "Yesterday, I was so sure of what I needed to do and now..."

    "I know," Link sighed holding him tighter before taking hold of his hands. Sidon forced himself to look into his husband's eyes as Link added, "But I'm not going anywhere. We'll get through this together."

    "You promise?"

    "I promise."
