    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

    He can fight well, but he is no scholar—not like Zelda. Zelda, his best friend, the cleverest, most brilliant person he knows. Zelda, who grew up on books the way Link grew up with a sword in his hand.

    But they’ve fought Ganon and won, and there’s so much to do, now— to learn, to try in new ways. Link thinks there is no harm in reading Zelda’s books—in learning about the world he lives in beyond simply living in it.

    Reading her books turns into an interest in poetry, for he can’t help being stirred by old Hyrulian sonnets, more so than any other texts.

    His unexpected newfound interest in poetry turns into an exploration into writing some, for the hell of it. He isn’t very good at it—no, they’re not good poems. But they are sincere, if nothing else.

    Of course, he’d never show Zelda his poetry. Not when so much of it is about her.

    To be able to perform alchemy, a person has to be able to use his hands first. Maybe now that he can’t perform alchemy anymore, Ed's hands aren’t any different from the average person.

    Summary

    “You’re the only one who’s stayed.”
