    Summary

    The stage of his greatest downfall was before him, doors opened to a dark void, yet it beckoned toward him. He was drawn to it, though all of his instincts screamed at him to run away. Hands came from within the dark, encircling his wrists like shackles. He tried to pull away, back up, and tear their hold on him, only for them to grow tighter and start dragging him into the darkness. He felt fear pool in his chest, the urge to scream for help building and building. Cries and screams that sounded all too familiar echoed as the hands dragged him inside.

    Summary

    Shadow gave everything for Link. Why wouldn't he? He was his shadow, his silent watcher, his hidden guardian (one who couldn't physically do anything, but it was the thought that counts, right?)

    Turns out that wasn't just for his Link.

    Summary

    There are many stories that have been told. Great legends of epic battles waged across time and space. Small tales about the simplicity of life in brief moments of respite. Stories of heroes and villains and heroes pretending to be villains and villains pretending to be heroes. Stories of young children who faced impossible odds and still came back out alive. Stories of the greatest people in the world trying to put themselves back together after life attempted to tear them all apart. Stories of friendship, of bravery, of a love that burns like wildfires across millennia. Stories of mind-shattering loss that twisted the kindest, most innocent souls into jaded warriors with skin darkened by the sun.
    But what would you do if it turned out that it all could’ve been different?
    If it all could’ve been stopped?
    The Links answer these questions.

    AKA the Chain finds out a secret or two and everyone takes it the worst way possible.
    AKA Shit's fucked up and everyone has problems. Lucky that they can all blame someone, huh?

    This is the last prompt for the Chosen and the Champion (Switch Gang Tribute)!

    Summary

    There were places you could hide, if you wanted to. Dark places, bright places, hidden places--all the usual suspects. Which is what made his hiding place so perfect: it was none of these. He knew of a few others like himself, but not many; shapeshifting was fun that way, hiding good folk where none of those who hunted them would think to look for them. He could hide in plain sight, and even other monsters believed him to be either merely Hylian, or else merely one of them.
    After all, no one would suspect the actual Hero to have been born as one of the Eyes of Ganon.

    Summary

    What…what was this feeling? Hurt. He was hurt. But he had no physical injuries on himself. His hollow heart ached. Black tears trailed down his cheeks. His red eyes were filled to the brim with emotions. He felt like he was choking. He couldn’t breathe as the emotions in his mind and heart swirled together. Hatred. Loneliness. Frustration. Sadness. Despair. Fear. It was all he felt.

    Summary

    His stepfather could do anything to him. He could maim, torture, kill him. He could force Legend’s body to move against his will, make his hands do things that he never wanted to do. But this? Using his gift? That was one thing that he could not, and wouldn’t ever, be able to make Legend do.

    Summary

    “What’s with the blanket?” asked Legend suspiciously, an eyebrow raised.

    Wind suddenly gasped, darting over to Twilight. “Is that a baby?”

    The group went silent at the last question, and Twilight nodded with a small sigh.

    ~~~

    An unknown time period, a ruined town, and a baby who only raises more questions then answers.

    Wild did not sign up to be father when he came on this quest but by Hylia he’ll try his hardest.

    Summary

    A chase scene in a movie can be intense depending on the factors which fuel the actors' actions.

    What is the scene? Where are they? What are the feelings surrounding them? Are they terrified or are they happy? Is it a police chase? A victim running from their attacker? There are so many variables to consider as to what makes the chase. What do people do to set that stage?

    In all honestly, you could care less about something like that when there's a demon dead sprinting towards you with malicious intent in its eyes and you can only turn away to book it.

    EDIT: This is based on the comic of all the Links from the Legend of Zelda franchise meeting. It's called "Linked Universe" and it's on both Tumblr and Instagram! Writing "Linked Universe" into either of their searchbars should bring it up!

    Summary

    It's kinda of like trying to coax a stray cat out of the cold; you're gonna get scratched and it's gonna take a while. Thankfully, Time's got all the time in the world.

    Except, he doesn't.

    When a 'business trip' goes south, the rest of the Chain are left scrambling without their leader as someone slowly and methodically hunts them down. No clear motive and not a clue as to who's doing it, one by one the group is whittled down as the rest do their best to guess what's going to happen next.

    In other words, this is an antihero au but also an homeless-adoption au but also a mystery at the same time.

    (And I'm sorry about the constantly switching POV/ sticking with a POV for a while before suddenly switching to someone else's)

    Summary

    “I don’t know about you guys,” Legend crossed his arms. “But the only girls that shadow guy would go after would be a princess.”
    “They did say she was wearing pink,” Wind hummed and tapped his foot on the ground.
    “But not all of our princesses wear pink,” Wild offered with a raised eyebrow.
    “Well,” Time finally spoke, drawing all eyes to their leader. “That just narrows down who exactly we’re looking for.”
    There was a moment of thoughtful silence before Hyrule spoke. “So…to the mountains, then?”
    “Let’s save a princess!” Wind cheered.

    Summary

    A lot can change with a single bite.

    One mishap lead to the collapse of castles and relationships alike; it can change the course of nine heroes' lives. The future is such a moldable thing, and one slip-up can destroy whatever good might have been coming.

    A lot can change with a single bite, and often, it's not for the best.

    (Or, we know the monsters of Hyrule can be corrupted and infected, but what about the Heroes?)

    Summary

    An incident in a dungeon kills Time- or they thought it did. Instead Time is split into two halves, a deity with Time's markings and a red-eyed shadow. The Chain attempt to figure out how to return Time to his true state while dealing with the newly dubbed 'Marked' and 'Shadow', one of which has a bad attitude and the other is somehow even more detached than Time's usual self. The Chain struggles without their leader but struggle emotionally with the loss of their father figure replaced by a demon and a deity.

    Summary

    A bunch of one-shots exploring the relations between the chain of the Linked Universe crew. Will range from fluff, to angst, with plenty of found family bonding and a few headcanons. Originally posted on Tumblr, but thought I'd move them over here because why not. Also, I'm not done with this thing yet so I have no idea how long it's going to be.

    1 Linked Awakening-- Legend finds Marin
    2-3 Linked Tri-Force-- Hyrule and the Tri-Force
    4-6 Linked Wilderness -- Wild meets his sister
    7 Linked Darkness -- Four (and the Chain) meet Dark
    8 Linked Family -- The Chain discuss their families
