    Summary

    Once, Hyrule was a prosperous place. No one went hungry, and everyone was treated equally.
    Now, thousands of years in the future, things have changed drastically.
    It is the year 4227, and almost the entire world has fallen into disrepair. Food is scarce, water scarcer. You must fight to survive, and nowhere is safe. The only place in Hyrule that is different is the city of New Hylia, where the nobles live in luxury and look down upon the common folk from outside. If one is lucky, they might be able to snag a job as a servant in New Hylia, living off the scraps of the people that live within.
    Red is a commoner, who lives out in the wilds of the remains of Hyrule with his only friends. They're running out of food fast, they've already hunted pretty much everything worth eating in the woods where they live, and the people they used to barter with for food have been killed. The only option left is to sneak into the New Hylian manor just over the wall near their hideout to snag some food to tide them over until they can find another solution.
    What happens? They get caught, of course.

    Summary

    It's been a year since Link and Zelda defeated Calamity Ganon. After Zelda relieved him of his duties, Link left to be with Sidon, the one he fell in love with during his travels, and the one person that doesn't make him feel empty. Engaged, they live happily together and wait excitedly for their wedding day.
    But everything changes when the Champions are resurrected by mysterious means.
    Revali is awake now, excited for another chance to be with Link, but is torn apart when he hears about the engagement. Although, as time goes on, Link regains his memories from being around Revali and the others and starts to go back to who he was before the Calamity.
    Sidon hates seeing Link change into someone he doesn't know, but he hates Revali more.
    Revali just wants Link for himself, and after one hundred and one years of waiting, he's still pining even though it hurts.
    When he regains his memories, Link loves them both, but has to decide which Link is the real one: the one he had to be before the Calamity, or the one he created when he awakened with a fresh start?

     

    It would be best if you read Too Cruel before this, but there's a synopsis linked in Author's Notes if you want to skip it!

    Summary

    In every life, Link is always reborn as a round-faced child with auburn hair and baby-blue eyes.

    Yet behind those blue orbs is always, always something ancient and telling, if one is perceptive enough to look past the cute face. Most aren't.

    Summary

    After the defeat of Calamity Ganon, Link presents as an Omega, something he kept a secret from everybody. Unfortunately, a month later, his secret is revealed and Zelda, who is an Alpha, decides that she and Link will get married, something that Link isn't keen about in the slightest. Now after two months of dealing with an overbearing, possessive Zelda, Link decides to escape the castle for a bit so he can get some time away from her. During his time out he comes across a certain Zora who Link believes that he now has feelings for. Or maybe that's the heat that's talking...

    Summary

    Sequel to Shadows of Hyrule

    In the ten years following Ganondorf's defeat, Link went from being a lazy high school student, to a lazy corporate slave who STILL hasn't had the need to find the circumference of a circle. Better yet, no one was asking him to show his math, and - what a concept - calculators were encouraged. His resume was heavily embellished, despite being a college drop out. But it seemed those two years were just enough to land him a second job. Working almost 16 hours a day provided him very little time for a social life, but it didn't matter - all of his friends had their own lives around Hyrule. And beside - he had bills to pay and a mortgage that was overdue. And he swore to himself they'd stay in the house as long as Aryll was in school. He couldn't think of uprooting her in the middle of high school. He wanted nothing more than for her to have as normal a life as possible. Thank the Goddesses for his favorite bar, which he frequented after work, usually not making it home until well after midnight.

    Life as Hyrule's Chosen Hero was so... thrilling...

    Summary

    Over the past century the world has passed Hyrule by. The end of Calamity Ganon means that the outside world is accessible again. Link and Zelda work to establish the kingdom, but she is tired of subjects that have grown ruthless and her efforts to help them seem in vain. When Lissa, an exiled Ylissian princess, and her companions show up on their shores just hours after a tragedy at Zora's domain the idea that it could be mere coincidence seems unlikely.

    20th Anniversary Fic for me.
