    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.

    (Not canon compliant-- it's better)

    Summary

    Hyrule closed his eyes and took in a deep breath before shakily answering. “I mean it could be nothing but doesn’t the magic just feel kind of strange. Not as fierce, not as desolate, not as … well wild.” the traveler exasperated.

     

    Just as the group is getting used to traveling around with each other, and they've all explored each other's worlds, the Goddesses decide there is one last place for them to visit. But in this world not everything is as it seems or as they expect, And Wild and their companions are going to have to resurface some old scars and work together to figure out what is going on in this strange yet familiar land.

    (Or the group visits a world where the calamities of yesterday never happened, and where Wild's friends and family were saved by a certain guardian and a little divine intervention.)

    Summary

    This is a basic, basic linked universe story. Except i only know linked universe from the fanfics and I want to do all my favorite canons and place them in the story. I will have chapters that follow my main canon storyline, and chapters that are just fluff or more like oneshots. For now all will go in here since I'm not sure anyone is interested.

    Summary

    "Get away from here!" Link Gustaf shouted at the mutinying Miis standing before the Mansion, "Nobody wants to kill anyone! But we won't let anyone kill and go unpunished! Long live freedom, long live Smash Bros! Long live Smash Bros' honor, long live Smash Bros' dignity!"

    "Let us have the Power to rebuild Hyrule. Let us have the Wisdom to forgive each other. And let us have the Courage to face the future together." - Jax Midonis, President of Hyrule
    -
    10 years have passed since the end of the 6th Hyrulean Civil War, the worst event in Hyrulean history, surpassing even the Calamity, which Hyrule's calendar is based around, of ten thousand years ago itself, and Hyrule is on the road to recovery.

    At the same time, Master Hand sends out invitations for the 6th edition of Super Smash Bros, and Link, who really needs a break from the pain that his beloved nation holds, agrees to go.

    Summary

    The silence between the two men had grown so common that it was almost comforting to Revali. He could not say that he was fond of the Hylian Champion, but rather that nearly dying beside him in combat softened his previously cold perception of him. Maybe, that was enough.

    The silence was broken, however, when Link peered out into the distance, shielding his eyes from the sun with the palm of his hand, and asked, "if we had died back there, do you think you would have had any regrets?"

    ~

    The Kingdom of Hyrule is incredibly pressed for time in their search for Champions to fight against the impending Calamity. As such, King Rhoam and his daughter did not really have the time to take 'chemistry' into account.

    Revali, a Rito archer who grew up with nothing but a bow and the feathers on his back, finds himself at odds with the Hylian Champion. When the two are forced to collaborate on a dangerous mission to find the truth behind a recent monster attack, they find that their differences are not as numerous as they once presumed.

    Summary

    It almost felt like something out of a bad romance novel— the hopeless protagonist glances over her shoulder to see the man who had stolen her heart, flirting with someone she had considered a friend, or at least an acquaintance. Link was wearing the royal guard’s uniform, white piping complimenting the golden wheat of his hair. Red and blue twisted along his lithe body, posture wonderfully straight as he nodded along to what someone was saying, an odd little smile playing along his features.

    Her brows pinched together. Link was talking to Mipha, who was acting downright flirtatious. She was laughing lightly into the back of her hand, cocking her shoulders upward with sly comments that pulled her lips into a cheshire smirk.

    They were flirting. Zelda did not know what to make of it.

    In which people grow, and relationships change.

    Summary

    A package wrapped in a silver ribbon arrives for the Hero of Hyrule—an Ocarina, to be exact. The thrum of power that the Master Sword hums to has Link on edge, but he has no one he can take it to.

    Except, of course, the one person who hates him most.

    Princess Zelda summons the champions and brings it to the Temple of Time—where they then uncover three stones and writings of a song on the wall that the Ocarina pulses to. Zelda is urged to play the song, only for them to find themselves one hundred years in the future, in a Hyrule they do not recognize. They want answers, and the rugged Hylian who claims to be a descendant of the Hero won't give them any.

    The more they dig around, the more they discover about what really happened one hundred years ago...

    Summary

    When Link is asked to investigate rumors of reinstated Yiga Clan activity, the last thing he expects is to find a missing king buried in the sand with eyes that set him alight whenever they linger for a moment too long.

    "Who are you?"
    He isn't sure, all of a sudden.

    Summary

    Months after the defeat of the Calamity, things have cooled down relatively well.

    Zelda is (mostly) back on her feet, and Link is itching to show her what she's been missing of her country for the last century. Recovery in secret can only last so long, but there couldn't be a more perfect time for a vacation than just before going public with the Princess's return.

    And what better excuse is there to travel across the country than getting a new feather bed?

    --

    Link and Zelda take the scenic route from Rito Village to Hateno to bring home a new feather mattress. And on the way, reconnect with the land, Zelda's recovering kingdom, and each other. They've still got one hundred years of catching up to do.

    Summary

    “I could not recognize myself in the mirror, when I got back, so I closed my eyes out of instinct. I pretended not to know myself.”

    [...] When Four spoke once more, the words were quiet as a prayer. “I hope that when he comes back, he will not pretend not to know himself. That he will learn, slowly, that he is all the space he needs.”

    In which everything that once was infinitely far and unsayable is now unsayable and right here in the room.
