    Summary

    “I know you understand duty too well to believe your job is over, but, Link,” the King says his name, and Link becomes even more nervous, now. “You saved everyone in Hyrule. You deserve a vacation, don’t you think? Perhaps a title? Tell me how I can repay you for your service, please.”

    Link knows what he wants to ask for. He’s known for a while now, actually. He wants that house across the bridge in Hateno Village, the new one. He wants the black castle horse, Charcoal, who he’s ridden ever since being assigned to his current post. Most of all, he wants to take a certain blonde Princess with him to that house in Hateno on the back of that black horse, so she can spend her days at Purah’s tech lab and her nights in his arms, and he never wants to have to leave her ever again.

    Even if by some Goddess-given miracle, the Princess wanted Link the way he wanted her, and the King was somehow okay with that, he doesn’t think the King would give him that.

    Summary

    I love the Regency Romance genre, and especially love Georgette Heyer novels. I was kind of surprised I didn’t see any other zelink Regency AUs because the story certainly lends itself to the genre. Well, be the change you want to see and all that. This story is mostly a Heyer-inspired series of tropes all strung together. Don’t overthink anything I came up with, I went with a lot of semi-plausible stuff that served the story I wanted to tell. It’s also not gonna be historically accurate so don’t expect that either, this is Hyrule, not England, and I can do what I want.

    Summary

    In what feels like seconds, she senses Cardan enter the hall, and she uses the last of her strength to push herself towards him. Cardan catches her in his arms, and finally, she lets her eyes fall shut.

    Safe.

    Distantly, as though she’s listening from under water, she hears Cardan bark orders at the guards. Then, “Jude, what’s wrong?” Hands move to her face, pushing back her hair, which has at some point become damp with sweat. “Jude, wake up.”

    When she doesn’t respond, Cardan begins to shake her. “Jude, wake up.

    Summary

    As a knight bound by oath, Link adhered to a strict code of conduct that governed his every waking hour. He wasn’t to deceive frivolously, he was to extend a helping hand whenever possible, and he would never, under any circumstances, presume to declare his undying love to Princess Zelda. It was unprofessional, if not unethical. He was tasked with her safety, and that included sheltering her from the burden of his emotions. And so, Zelda was kept in blissful ignorance to the heart she held in her hands.

    The chivalric code was strict, but it wasn’t unforgiving. There were allowances. Small things Link could do to express little shreds of his love, if only to keep from exploding. To keep from shouting out his devotion for Zelda, her fierce determination and her unbreakable spirit. He kept his silence for so long, he thought restraining himself would be natural, but then she would laugh, or look his way, or hum if he was lucky, and he was a beat away from saying ‘I love you’. It was too much to hold in. Too much to hide, so he began giving Zelda small tokens of his affections. Subtle gestures, unnoticeable, and easily misconstrued as a part of his duty to the Princess’ safety.
