    Summary

    Princess Zelda has spent her whole life in fruitless prayer. Her kingdom is fated for destruction, and only she possesses the power to alter this. But the Goddess Hylia--fabled to be the ancestor of the Hyrulian royal family--has proven deaf to her devotion.

    In a desperate attempt to gain this “sealing power,” the King of Hyrule sent his daughter away to study at the Temple of Time. After two years, Zelda is forced to return to the capital, only to learn that her counterpart in destiny, the Chosen Hero, has appeared in the form of a skilled knight not a year older than Zelda.

    Taking this as an omen of Hyrule’s doom, Zelda and the Chosen Hero, Link, must embark on a journey that will test their commitment to their destiny, while navigating the bitter relationship between them. Zelda is determined to unlock her bloodline’s sacred powers, but she will soon learn that the gods work in mysterious ways.

    Summary

    Some people are born to make history, others doomed to fade into obscurity.

    When Link pulls the Master Sword free from its pedestal, he immediately doubts himself as the hero of legend. His ambitions were not noble; his sole reason for training to become a knight was to make his father, a member of the Royal Guard, proud. He does not enjoy fighting; he never has.

    But he learns quickly to keep these uncertainties to himself; after all, how could Hyrule believe in a hero that didn't believe in himself?

    This is the story—the memory—of someone that faded into obscurity, forgotten one-hundred years later. Because sometimes, the most seemingly insignificant people can have very significant effects on the course of history.

    Summary

    Link didn’t expect a ‘thank you’ or a grandiose celebration in his honor after all of this was done.

    He didn’t want one.

     
    (a one-shot of Link knowing the fact that, at the end of the day, no one will remember him).

    Summary

    Zelda is a popular high school senior whose hobbies include theater, the school senate, and fighting with the Vice Principal (who seems to have a personal vendetta against her). Link is her aloof classmate with a motorcycle, two friends, and a bad reputation that steers most people far away from him before he can even say 'hi.' After years of never talking to each other, a brief project in their ASL class has them noticing the other more and more, and they realize that there's more to the other person than meets the eye. And they're about to figure out that life isn't meant to be lived alone.

    Summary

    Zelda rushed to his rapier by his nightstand. Throwing off its sheath, he pointed the blade at Ghirahim. “Call me princess one more time and I’ll stab you.”

    “Brave words for a foolish girl.”

    “I’m not a girl!”

    “Are you now?” Ghirahim asked. “You expect me to believe Hyrule’s princess is a boy?”

    “Yes,” Zelda retorted. He took a step forward, jabbing his rapier at Ghirahim. “Tell me what you’re doing here.”

    Ghirahim looked impishly amused by Zelda’s attempt at intimidation. “Wouldn’t you like to know, hm?”

    Three generations after the defeat of Calamity Ganon, Hyrule has prospered and returned to its former glory. A new princess has been born, a farm hand has been trained as a knight, and evil brews once again in the desert. It’s a story the kingdom knows well, but the problem is not another repetition of the Triforce cycle.

    Zelda is not a princess, and he doesn’t want to kill anyone.

    In other words, this is a story about a new generation of heroes dealing with the unwanted expectations of their parents. They’re learning how to stand up against their parents’ wrongs, forgive the past, and forge new names for themselves.

    Summary

    Link's life is haunted by shades of blue.

    Specifically, Sheikah blue. The shrines are blue. The towers are blue. The bombs are blue. His old tunic is blue...A Guardian's beam is blue.

    Everything he can't remember is blue, and he hates it. He hates these half remembered fears, these vague spaces left behind by a tragedy he doesn't remember. He doesn't remember any of it, except a sense of something (someone) missing.

    The voices all tell him he'll remember eventually. Eventually couldn't come soon enough.

    (SLOOOOOOW updates, but still going. This thing is going to be MONSTROUS by the end, so please be patient with me!)

    Summary

    This story takes place in the world of BOTW 10000 years ago and details the fight against the Calamity, the creation of the Sheikah Tech, and of course, our legendary Hero and his Princess. It starts from Link's Exam to become a Knight and then things go wrong slightly. Each chapter alternates between Link and Zelda's POV.

    The only thing Link hadn’t accounted for in his grand scheme, was the Princess herself. And she spotted him lazing outside on her Balcony because he had pushed his luck too far this time. For a brief two seconds, although it felt longer, they had made eye contact, and she had smiled. And then ducked back into her study. Link froze. Her eyes were a striking, sparkling jade. Would she tell on him? She had smiled at him. Wait did the Princess know about these exams? Had he been the only knight to get caught by the Princess? Exactly how many knights must have sat here before? Had she smiled at all of them? He felt a small twinge of jealousy. Wait what? At that last thought, Link unfroze himself, took a couple of deep breaths and calmed himself down. It had just been a simple smile. But it had been for him.

    Summary

    Link's amnesia went beyond forgetting the Champions, or forgetting the map. He forgot *everything*

    Every name for every item.

    Every memory he ever had.

    Once the Sheikah Slate is fixed and he now can use the camera to relearn everything from scratch.... it really hits him how much he's lost in the fight against Ganon.

    Good thing the dogs are there to help him when he needs a hug.

    Summary

    Found among the ashes of war, a mere babe was given the name Link and taken in by a group of his Majesty's most trusted servants, known as the Sheikah Tribe, to be raised and trained in the ways of their tribe. Years have passed since then, and the young Link has become the retainer of the young and beautiful Princess Zelda, whom he has developed a crush on, just as she has developed a crush on him. But, as the recently crowned King of the Gerudo Tribe, a sinister man called Ganondorf, who seems disturbingly familiar to the princess and her retainer and dark clouds begin to cover Hyrule, the time has come for young Link to take his rightful place among the greatest and noblest of legends, and become the Hero of Time foretold to save Hyrule in its darkest and most desperate hour.

    Summary

    Lmfao okay MOSTLY women and one frickin BEAST of a chapter w Prince Sidon in the middle, enjoy slash-shippers! XD XP But what's mostly on the menu is a night under the stars (and seeing stars...) with Celessa, sex on the beach with Loone, a night in Tarrey Town tarrying just a bit with Rhondson, making Paya's heart (and other parts) pound lmfaooo, and will maybe take Zelda on an adventure too once she's free, what the heck, why not~

    Basically just gonna write about Link living it up a bit on his travels between defeating evil across the land before he takes on Ganon to save Zelda. Bc just saying its been a hundred years already, Zelda can wait a few extra, PFT... You know, to make sure the hero properly 'fortifies' himself along the way, that's important to the journey too~... (Also maybe something something about past lives cheering him on from beyond to live the most of his life knowing it can possibly be short and tragic if not careful so might as well live while he can? IDK or smth like that XD;; ANYWAYS PLEASE COMMENT OR KUDO IF YOU ENJOY~ )

    Summary

    Link didn't know what to think or feel since he's woken up. He's been told he's the hero, the chosen one, the princess's chosen knight. But he doesn't feel that way. What he did know, was that sound floating in the air was an instrument playing as Impa spoke. One that he feels drawn to.

    It was thanks to his instincts that he raised his sword. “Who are you? Why were you spying on me and the kids?” Meiko asked as he pushed his sword harder against Link’s. “Did they send you?”

    Link’s hand shook before he carefully pushed Meiko back. “Wait please! I don’t want to fight you!” he pleaded.

    "It’s you,” Meiko whispered, his voice fell into a whisper as he said ‘you.’ The vagabond reached up before he pulled his hood back. Blue grey eyes scanned Link’s face as a breeze rustled his hair. “Link.”
