    Summary

    Wild knew he was… odd. He experienced the world differently than everyone else. No one seemed to feel as deeply as he did, about the things he did. Sometimes he would interact with people and it would just feel… off. It was as if everyone else had a rulebook on how to be a person but Wild was left watching and guessing.

    And the thing is, Wild knew his friends knew it too. But these new friends, they were different. They didn’t treat him like he was different, or broken, or a burden. They just took him in stride. Wild didn’t know how to put into words how much that meant to him.

    In which Wild is autistic because I’m autistic and I want him to be.

    Summary

    Iliandra, being the descendant of heroes, had certain responsibilities.

    Unfortunately, with those responsibilities came those who would try to abuse it. When it was revealed the goddess had blessed her with the ability to use the Ocarina passed down through her family since the olden days, her family forced her to go along with their whims. Eventually, she had enough- and fled from the village she had grown up in, taking the Ocarina with her. She could not have predicted the monsters that would attack shortly after.

    At that point in time, Iliana- a young woman that shared in the soul of Iliandra- was caught in an awful accident. To save Iliandra, and to give the hero soon-to-be-awakened a better chance of defeating their greatest foe, Hylia gave Iliana an offer of a second chance. Taking her up on that offer, Iliana soon awoke in the body of Iliandra, a Hylian that was near identical to her. With her knowledge of this world, Hylia hopes Iliana will be able to work alongside Iliandra to guide Link on his journey throughout the wild. What the goddess failed to consider, was that Iliana knew very little about the previous heroes' journeys...

    And, as such, had no idea what it was she was doing.

    Summary

    This is the legend of the Four Sword and the hero who made it. The child who saved his world when no one else could. Because only children can see the Picori. Because Zelda is his friend. Because he's the one with the sword.
    This is the legend of how Link becomes a Hero.

    (The other games are now going to each be their own stories, so look forward to that!)

    ----

     

    I wanted to do an in-depth character—and trauma—study, to explore the idea of a single hero of the Four Sword (Four from Jojo56830's Linked Universe AU is my fave because I love the Four Swords manga and Minish Cap) where his other selves aren't the result of arbitrary splits made by the Four Sword's magic, but the result of a traumatized Link developing Dissociative Identity Disorder.

    Summary

    Strange storms begin lashing at the castle and sickly mists begin bubbling up from below the dungeons. Something is afoot in Hogwarts and Harry Potter stumbles upon it, as he always does. When he accidentally unleashes the wind mage Vaati from his prison, it's up to Harry, his friends, and his new "brothers" to put Hogwarts right again. An original "game" set in Harry's third year, combining various gimmicks and geographical quirks from across Zelda canon. Deep knowledge of Zelda lore is not a prerequisite for reading, I promise. It's not like the HP kids know what an Octorok is from the get-go!

    Summary

    The second she stepped through the gates of Hyrule Castle, everything stopped.

    Time had not been a luxury to her before these moments. Every waking moment had been spent preparing for this. The Divine Beasts had been reduced to nothing more than machinery, languishing in their respective lands. Her friends, the Champions, were gone. Fort Hateno had fallen, Link alongside it. Everything caught up to her and threatened to tear from her chest in great sobs of anguish, but she swallowed them down, kept walking, walking…

    ………

    Summary

    Over their just over a year together, they've slowly gotten better at communicating with one another. Link doesn’t remember much about their time pre-calamity, and if for only the selfish reason that he doesn't remember how much of a brat she became while stressed, she is glad. When she thought of him in those one hundred years, she often thought of how she'd apologise to him. How she hoped they could maybe repair their relationship, perhaps even become friends. She thinks she might have accomplished that goal, in the time they spent working on understanding their next steps as a duo.

    (She doesn't know if the frequency they share bedrolls and hold hands is what constitutes a simple friendship, but when she begins overthinking it, she realises she likes the freedom of it. Not everything in her life needs a clinical definition and scientific analysis.)

    They’re better at noticing when the other is upset, at the least. And after a hearty soup, Link does just that.

    “I don’t think that went too well.”

    Zelda snorts.

    Summary

    I’m 19, and to be honest, I like being childish and being treated a bit gentler. I’m lucky to not be treated like I’m inexperienced or stupid, and I want that for Wild.

    This isn’t the best written thing out there and I do apologize for that. I love it none the less though so I hope you do too. It’ll likey be updated every couple of months or so.

    Summary

    This is NOT a standalone!

    Tubbo and Zelda have spent seven years trying to bring back Link and Ranboo. It seems all of those who stood against the forces of hatred are stuck in a dull low. Dream’s corrupted Revivebook is useless, and revenge on their killer has been taken. Yet, it’s not as if there’s nothing. Dream and Ganondorf are only growing stronger, and those close are only getting more distant. After investigating a rumor, the two are ambushed… and saved.

    Ranboo and Link are back, alive and breathing, but to them, they’ve been in limbo for 210 years. To everyone else, they’re nothing like those they lost.

    Everything is thrown into chaos, and if you want an account from the outside eye, I’m here to share.

    Summary

    "The sight before him was enough to let Link take back over, or at least it would have if he hadn’t been rooted to the spot, eyes trained on the man before him. His armor wasn’t tarnished and vine-covered yet, his bones were still neatly tucked beneath skin, but his hand hovered above the hilt of a broadsword Link knew, and a single blue eye was all that gazed back at him.

    Link knew why the scent was familiar-but-not, now. He smelled like the Hero’s Shade had in front of Hyrule Castle, during his very last moments in the mortal plane."

    Twilight's second first meeting with Link, the Hero of Time.

    Summary

    Following the events of Ocarina of Time, Link is on the search for Navi when he accidentally falls a long, long way down into a strange underground land of… kind and civil monsters? Maybe there's a place in the hearts of some of these monsters to give one displaced forest child a new home.

    Summary

    Link feels most like himself in the wild, with the wind in his hair, grass stains on his knees and a mysterious wolf by his side. He wakes up in the shrine of resurrection with nothing but destiny to his name, and the quest he has laid out before him will be a long and arduous one. How will he reconcile what he has to be with who he really is? With the weight of the world on his shoulders, and not nearly enough sleep in his system, that may be more difficult than he realizes.

    Summary

    Sidlink is one of my comfort ships so this is just a little something I'm writing to satiate my touch starved self.

    Link is an autistic, nonverbal high school student. He moves to a new school, luckily where his best friend Zelda goes, and even more luckily where he'll meet Sidon. They're both pining idiots and dance around each other for a while, meanwhile Link is his stupid self and Zelda is trying to be helpful.

    Summary

    Revali
    if i were not an apparition, i would wrap my wings around your throat and strangle the life out of you

    link
    ok just for that i'm revoking your girl boss status.

     

    The gang has a group chat. Don't ask about the specifics... because I don't know them. How does Revali type with wings? I'm ignoring that question. Why do they have all mobile devices? I'm ignoring that question too.
    The champions are still kinda... mega dead, but there still right here. Link has turned into a feral little man post resurrection + Hyrule saving. All-around just a super unhinged little guy. Poor thing.

    Very OOC, it's all in good fun. Only posting because I re-found it and thought it was really funny.
