    Summary

    Hyrule prepares for war as Calamity stirs. Champions are appointed great beasts to protect their lands. An ancient army of weapons built for this very purpose is awoken to action. The gears of a plan 10,000 years in the making begin to click into place. It needs a new hero who will aid the goddess-blood princess in sealing darkness away.

    A young but talented knight named Link is plucked right out of the royal guard for this very task. He soon discovers that the fighting isn't the hard part - Princess Zelda is beautiful, clever, and VERY good at running away.

    It takes both Wisdom and Courage to reconcile fate and freedom, duty and passion, success and failure. This story follows our hero and princess as they go from reluctant allies to friends, friends to best friends, and best friends to... well, we'll see.

    Alternating POV, but a little more time in Link's. Will reference/depict all memories as of DLC2 with some changes in order because it's absolutely infuriating how geographically ridiculous they are if you go by the official chronology.

    Summary

    It has taken over one hundred years, but Calamity Ganon has been defeated. Link and Zelda are eager to discover their places in a very different world, to learn what it means to live freely without the burdens of prophecy and duty. They can watch Hyrule heal from a century of wounds at a cosy home in the midst of friends and the green, green hills — finally, a peaceful ending to all their trials.

    Except... destiny has never been so lenient. Hyrule, raised on legends of wise princesses and courageous heroes, clamours for their return. It's a new conundrum, one that perhaps sealing swords and a Goddess's bloodline cannot solve immediately.

    Summary

    An expansion of canon: a look at why the memories might have happened where and when they occurred (with one slight change in order) and an attempt to fill-in the events and conversations alluded to by diary entries and conversations in-game.
    "You were a comfort to her," in particular, needed to be expanded upon, I thought.
    Begins shortly before the first journal entry in Zelda's diary, and continues to the immediate aftermath of the last memory.

    Summary

    “Jesse,” she asked, and her voice was as dry as the wind that carried the sand away from where they were, staring at each other as if on a stand off. She felt it, then, when something shifted, when the theatrics were carried away by the breeze, and suddenly it was no longer Ashe and McCree - they were two young kids, trying to carve a home in the wild wild west of the world. Her voice was steady, but her fingers trembled. “What do you want?”

    “Why, Liz,” he said softly, and took a step closer that felt as if he had crossed an ocean of distance. His voice was hoarse, but he was soft as the breeze. “I came here for you.”

    Or: A tale of getting lost, getting hurt, and finding love in between.
