Broken Chains - Chapter 11Chapter 11: Island's Heart of Light
"Hey, come on, guys!"
Selphie, Wakka, and Tidus were having a free-for-all spar on the beach. Wakka had been winning the most of the three, but Tidus and Selphie had decided to form a temporary truce to eliminate him before turning on each other.
At the entrance to the secret cave, Kairi was watching them. Wakka impressed her by leaping into the air and hurling his ball at Selphie so that the strike ricocheted into Tidus and back at himself. Softly, she turned away and stepped inside as the fight escalated.
It hadn't been that long, but Kairi's heart still ached when she thought of Sora, trapped in the endless darkness that rested at the heart of all worlds. When Destiny Islands was restored, she had stayed away from the others, refusing to answer their questions, and spent almost all of her time in the secret place covered in drawings.
As she gazed over the rough, child-crafted pieces of art that covered the cave, Kairi's thoughts wandered to

Link woke to find Farore was asleep at his side. He gladly would have remained still, given her as long as she pleased to sleep as a mortal. But he knew all-too-well where he was, what was at stake, so instead he gently shook her shoulder.
Farore's eyes slowly fluttered open. "Morning, Link."
"Morning, Farore," Link said softly.
The former Goddess struggled to a sitting position. "How long have I been out?"
Link shook his head. "No idea. I'm pretty sure I was asleep before you were."
"Is this really what mortals feel like without proper sleep?"
A soft sigh emerged from the Hero. "Yes," he replied. "And I swear, when we're done with this, I'm going to let you sleep to your heart's content." He softly pressed his lips against hers, and she responded in kind.
The two of them regretfully pulled away, and Link glanced around the barn. Zelda was conked out in the corner, Nayru resting softly at her side. They woke the two of them up, then laid out their plan.
Hero's Trail - Chapter 24Chapter 24: To Slay an Immortal
"What do we do?"
Link, who was leaning against the wall and turned away from the others, didn't respond to Zelda's question at first. The sight of Castle Town being decimated was fresh in his mind, and it was painful.
Farore shook her head in the dim light of the barn. "I have no idea. The three of us together would be able to take the Triforce from Ganondorf. However, not only my status, but Ganondorf's threat... he plans to tear Din's immortality from her."
"Not just tear it," Nayru stated. "I wouldn't put it past him to make her immortality his own. He will be nigh impossible to defeat."
"What will it take?" Zelda asked. "The prison of the Sacred Sages will no longer confine him. What will it take to defeat him - really, truly defeat him?"
Nayru sighed. "It would take another immortal," Nayru replied. "One who is fit for battle, one with strength from each of the races which bears a Sacred Sage. It would take the most impossible of spells, one
Hero's Trail - Chapter 23Chapter 23: To Make an Immortal
Ganondorf looked over the ruin he had wrought. The castle was in pieces all around him. The town had fallen, every living being died. It was only phase one of what he had in mind for the area around him. He reached outward for phase two and called in Black Chant;
"Ōt o uretat onos imay on ugnir, ukād ustemuf on ustotih in urusiata!"
The darkness gathered around him, then surged into the air, bringing Ganondorf and Din with it. It domed at the top, and Ganondorf watched as the dark magic became black brick, forming a massive tower inlaid with demonic figures. It was many-floored, and he was at the peak of it as it domed over him.
He let the black power form it around him as he turned to Din. The goddess was still bound by dark chains, and he stepped forward as black brick turned to shadowy white marble under his feet. Ganondorf reached forward and tore the black gold from her mouth, forming a scream from the goddess.
Hero's Trail - Chapter 22Chapter 22: Rise of the Desert King
It wasn't cued by a sound.
Not by a sight.
Not by a scent.
But all over Hyrule, everything that lived felt it - a sudden shift it tension.
In the deep forest, Saria was perched at the entrance to the Forest Temple, under the guise of Iaris. Often had she seen Mido and the other within the Forest Meadow, but recently all had stayed out of the area.
When it happened, she felt it. The forest whispered to her what little she didn't understand, but Saria knew, without knowning, the sensation that approached her.
As though on cue, Deku Babas rose from the ground. These weren't the ones that Saria knew - these were distorted, monstrous babas that writhed around.
Her whip of vines appeared in her hand, and Saria leapt into the air. She whipped it down and cut the Babas at the stems, but they simply started to slither on the ground like snakes, prompting her to lash out at the heads.
"The Kokiri, the Deku Tree... they're all in trouble..." Sh
Hero's Trail - Chapter 21Chapter 21: Power's Charge
A single pair of eyes opened.
He was still there. An endless, blinding white void. It was not light... but it was not neccessarily darkness. He could not see through it... and yet he could. It did not stop his movements... but it did not let him move.
The prison of the Sacred Sages.
Ganondorf gave an angry howl. Dark magic enveloped him, and he unleashed the strongest energy he could muster - a twisting black power that seared through eternity. It shot outward in waves, in rings, in pulses, even enveloping its summoner and then expanding endlessly. He let it loose over and over, and over, and over again, until finally the stamina of his rage faded and he fell limp.
"It's no use."
The Gerudo king turned to see a fiery angel standing there. Blazing crimson hair, skin with an ember glow, firewoven garments, and an eternal flame in her eyes. Ganondorf pulled back and found he could - for the strength was that which he himself had felt at one point.
Hero's Trail - Chapter 20Chapter 20: Windcrystal
Sheik was in trouble.
He and Nayru were in the Spirit Temple, surrounded by a swarm of Anubis. Though the chain had proven itself useful in combat, their foes were only vulnerable to fire, and slowly, the two of them were losing stamina.
The Sheikah was just considering fleeing when a burst of fire struck one of the Anubis. The corpsesque beast was bathed in flame and struck the ground, fading into shadows. Another burst - this time, Sheik made out a Fire Arrow - flew into their foes. Then another. And another. Slowly, the swarm around them thinned to one. And then it was gone.
"Neccessary means absolutely required."
A green-clad figure leapt down, wielding a bow from the forest. Link got to his feet, flung another Fire Arrow at another Anubis at the far end of the room, and turned to Sheik. "And frankly, Princess, it'll depend on your ability whether or not something is absolutely required."
Sheik blinked. "Link... It's gone? Your memory's restore
Hero's Trail - Chapter 19Chapter 19: A Loyal Hero
The single word rang like a bell, catching Nayru's attention. "I'm not leaving Farore in there. I won't pass the place she's being held captive when I know I can free her." He turned from Nayru, to Sheik, to Aveil. "Say what you will. Do what you want. But I'm going to free Farore." He turned towards the canyon, focusing on the Hover Boots on his feet.
"If you try and stop me, it's your funeral."
He started over the canyon, nothing but a plane of air under his feet. He kept his pace even after he cleared the canyon - the only difference was that he could spare the focus to draw his blade.
Zelda sighed. "You're right," she stated. "He loves her."
Aveil turned to them. "You're not going to help him, are you?"
"We don't stand a chance against the Gerudo," Nayru replied. "Neither does Link. He knows it in his mind... but his heart can't accept it." She sighed and got to her feet. "Let's go. We need to get the tools from the Desert Colossus."
