    Summary

    Summary

    Hyrule floods in one timeline. The Four Sword and its resting place was supposedly flooded with it.
    (But here's the thing: water cannot drown itself; not even if the water is goddess-tears. And the Water Element rests with the sword it helped forge.)

    OR:
    There's mention of the Four Sword and its hero in two timelines. The story lives on even as time had shattered around it. But then, that begs the question of the last timeline, doesn't it? (Water and water and islands; where could it be hiding?)

    Summary

    “I’m not good with goodbyes!” he insisted. “Let’s just--”

    “None of us are,” Warriors laughed wetly.

    “Just accept it, you grump,” Wild chuckled, helping pull their veteran back into the group hug.

    Legend’s face grew redder, and then he was hiding his face in Warriors’s scarf.

    And then, they had parted, eyes red and faces blotchy, and Four almost laughed at the sudden discovery that they were all ugly criers.

    Four looked at the portal waiting for him, waiting to take him home. He cast one last look over his shoulder at his brothers, ingraining their faces into his memory, and then he stepped through.

    Or,

    After everything is said and done, they do not realize that this is not their final goodbye.

    Summary

    In the heart of chaos, the shadow of night
    In the words of the innocent, pure and the light
    Take up this challenge, and if done right
    True colors take form within your sight

    Lay your sins bare before the altar of Four
    Realize the truth down deep in your core
    Prepare yourself for the battle in store
    Or be trapped in ignorance forever more

    Take hold of your hatred, your pain and your rage
    Take hold of your love, your hope trapped in its cage
    Accept them within you, your soul is your stage
    With the balance in life you’ll write its new page

    Though your adventures were long, and your rewards often hollow
    Take heed of your trials, and embrace all your sorrow
    Remember your survival, and then come tomorrow
    Accept all that you are and walk with your shadow.

    Summary

    It almost seemed like a routine at this point. They would drop into another time, find that time's Link, and have them join the group.

    Alas, if only it could be simple.

    Especially when Legend makes realizations that he would come to regret.

    Summary

    It's raining outside, thundering loud like drums. The night is murky and miserable, and Four is wide awake on a full-night watch. Despite rain assaulting the rickety one-person log cabin they'd decided to stay in, the watch was relatively uneventful.

    Until there's a knock on the door.

    Summary

    A quartet of statues stood in front of the barrier, their bodies turned so that they faced each other. Old stonework, as ancient as the dungeon itself, the details long ago worn away. The faces of the figures were gone, carved off in some fit of violence, leaving whoever they were - whatever they had been - a mystery.

    (not much older than us - did they die here? - heroes - losers - ancient history, perhaps - poor things)

    Four wakes up alone in the Palace of the Four Sword and discovers a disturbing glimpse of his future.

    Summary

    What he had thought was a second chance from Hylia was nothing but a horrible, cruel joke. He wished he had never been brought back—it’s brought him nothing but pain.

    He gave up, save for one thing.

    Summary

    It was as if time had frozen, the shock coursing through his body gluing his eyes to the sword in his hand. He stared at the hilt of the half-drawn sword, the sword that shouldn’t be here. It shouldn’t be possible for it to be here.

     

    Or: the writer read the Four Swords Manga and Linked Universe at the same time and can't stop thinking about ideas for more Four fics

    ON HIATUS FOR A FEW MONTHS (due poor planning + rl complications, but don't worry!! i am still writing and i will finish this fic, i just need to take the pressure of for a bit! ty all for reading and i'm still super hyped for this so far!)
