It is said that hundreds of years ago, there was once Light within the kingdom of Hyrule. A sun blazed high in the sky and illuminated the land, extinguishing all darkness that came across its brilliant face and painting the world in every color imaginable. There was peace and order that staved back the chaos, and the citizens had a magnificent queen that was just and fair. For them, every day was one to look forward to.

SPECULUM - :You Make Orange Juice: [EPILOGUE]
Birdsong filtered through the trees, the small creatures hopping among the branches and on the ground below, pecking for seed. A blaring trumpet broke the silence, causing the birds to take flight and hide as a Skullkid danced about, sounding his instrument as he went. He turned around, hopping from one foot to the other in a playful manner as he waited for the arrival of a very important guest. "Follow Ticktock! Never lose sight of Ticktock!" he called, happily dancing about. A hand emerged from the tunnel that the Skullkid had opened, planting itself on the side of the tunnel and slowly pulling an elderly woman through. "Slow down," she said with a soft chuckle, "I'm not as young as I once was."
"Come! Come!" the spirit urged her, dancing about and scurrying forwards. The old woman sighed softly but wore a proud smile on her face as she moved along, taking her time to move along the ruins of the temple and make her way down to the bottom level where the child was headed. Ticktock cam

As he appeared in the field he whipped his head around wildly and scanned the area, unable to fathom what had just occurred. "No, she--Jacqueline..." He looked to Zelda, who had appeared next to him and was wearing a worried expression; she was the bearer of the Triforce of Wisdom, but not even she had anticipated Jacqueline's reckless move.
"We seem to have been moved to the fields," Zelda said, her voice soft. Link looked down, his brows furrowed; why would Jacqueline have moved them here? Splitting up the team didn't seem like a wise move at all, considering that all four of them had been struggling against the evil tyrant, and he knew that Jacqueline had known she couldn't face Ganondorf alone.
He blinked and looked to Zelda, "Where is Midna?"
Zelda looked off in the distance, "I believe she is still with Jacqueline--in the castle!" Link followed the gaze of the princess, exasperation overwhelming him; without either of his friends, he couldn't teleport back to help the

With the Goddess Sol tucked away as we closed the door behind us, I raised a hand to brace against the wind, climbing the staircase with Link outside and trying not to be thrown off the building. We made it to the top and entered into a massive room with a long blue carpet stretching all the way to the throne that lingered at the head. "It isn't red, but is it what you expected?" Link asked, and I grinned at his joke, earning a small smile from him. I hesitated upon seeing his expression, sensing he was nervous and had much on his mind. I put a hand on his shoulder, "Don't worry, we'll handle whatever comes our way together."
The Chosen smiled at me, the small traces of anxiety disappearing as he nodded and moved ahead with Midna floating ahead of us. "Let's not wait for them to send a welcoming committee," she said, "so let's get a move on already!" We moved further into the room, coming to stop before the fallen head of an alabaster statue. I narrowed my eyes and sensed a sinister pr

The tavern was almost filled-to-burst with customers, the captain having brought his entire guard to celebrate. He pounded me on the back, laughing while holding a large mug of milk in the other gauntlet-covered hand. "It's good to see you around again, Jacqueline m'girl," he bellowed, "I have to admit I didn't recognize you at first!"
"I'd have been surprised if you did," I smiled and hunched over painfully as I earned another slap on the back from the enthusiastic man, gripping my glass of water protectively to keep the contents from spilling. Telma gave me a wry smirk as she cleaned out a mug with her cloth. "Speaking of surprises," she said, "you ran out on us and didn't leave a note, and for some strange reason, none of us could remember your charming little face! Now I don't know magic like you do, but I have a hunch that you had something to do with our little forgetful-epidemic we had going around."

Colin tossed and turned in his bed before sitting up suddenly, his skin covered in a light coat of sweat. He blinked; what kind of dream had he had? A strange woman had been in it, and she had been crying and kneeling in a very dark and ominous place, yelling at him to leave and continue running, and to never look back. The boy put a hand to his forehead; why did she seem so familiar? He had wanted to help her out of the chains she had been in, but she wouldn't let him. She had just kept calling his name and begging him to leave her. A darkness had been coming, she had warned him, and he had to leave. Initially in his confusion he had run away, but as he had looked behind him, he could see the woman quaking in fear at the approaching threat, but she was facing it and preventing it from following him. Despite his desire to flee and do as he had been told, the boy had wanted to save the woman even more, and he had turned around to run back to her and free her. The woman had seen him comi

Link tumbled into the realm of twilight, the way back to his world kept open by the Mirror's power. Midna appeared next to him, turning to see a spectacle playing out before them:
A great sphere of golden light was encompassing her palace, sending soothing rays of Light out and bathing her citizens in its radiant glow. The orb rippled like it was made of water, and it grew slightly in size, however that wasn't what caused the twilight princess to gape in shock. Link followed her gaze, seeing two healthy orbs of light in the sky. "What are those?" he asked.
"Those are our sols, but...why are they up in the air? What happened here?" The imp looked down, seeing her subjects kneeling before the golden orb, an awed prayer being uttered from their lips. Midna narrowed her eye, "I need you to investigate briefly before we go in, see what's going on. If they see me, chances are they might become hostile.

SPECULUM - :Ghost Trails: [45]
I looked ahead of me after animating into the Twilight realm, gazing at the dark-smitten land. I felt the ground under my feet and knew that this wasn't a dream; that I was here for real this time. I looked ahead and walked forwards, feeling pain coursing through me as I carried down the path, coming closer and closer to my destination. The Twili still standing saw me coming and fell to their knees in awe, reaching out to touch me as I passed by. I collapsed and thrashed on the ground, my body changing as I was turned into the abominable monster crafted in Demise's design, the exception being one of my horns was missing. I got up and blinked my eye at the Twili, but their demeanor toward me didn't change; they whispered 'Maiden' around me, touching me as I walked by like I was a sacred artifact. I moved by the fallen Twili, my presence rejuvenating them with life and spirit. The people followed me towards the main stairs up to the palace, and I stopped to look to them.

Brazier of Heroes - Prologue Message by Zelda206

Prologue



It is said that hundreds of years ago, there was once Light within the kingdom of Hyrule. A sun blazed high in the sky and illuminated the land, extinguishing all darkness that came across its brilliant face and painting the world in every color imaginable. There was peace and order that staved back the chaos, and the citizens had a magnificent queen that was just and fair. For them, every day was one to look forward to.


In truth, such a tale is all that the people can cling to now, for ever since the Light was dispersed oh so long ago, there has been little to no sunlight, no peace, no kingdom, and no queen to be heard of. For three hundred years the people of Hyrule have adapted to a blackened world of despair and sorrow, doing whatever they can to generate light and allowing the memories of happier days to waste away in the darkest recesses of their minds. The denizens of the kingdom still acknowledge each other, but their unity is just as spent as their money is on fuel for their fires; flint and tinder for bonfires have become some of the most expensive resources to trade, apart from silks and food. The smallest bit of sunlight breaks the veil of shadow coveting the heavens, allowing plants and trees to get enough energy to grow, but only so much; their bark is brittle and their growth severely stunted. Still, the races of Hyrule continue to survive in spite of their bitterness and lack of faith. Against an endless eclipse, there is no hope of finding a way to lift the dark, for there is no visible enemy to overthrow nor hero to speak of.


Three hundred years ago, there had been such a foe to conquer, but the people only recall it as a legend. In a blast of brilliant light, the spirits that guarded the Light of Hyrule were extinguished in one desperate act to save the world from a tyrannical king and his Vanquisher monster, and in the process saved the world from one evil but doomed the land to an eternal imprisonment in the shadows. Such an event was called 'The Great Setting', a period of time in which the dying Light had still existed but had cast the realms in a long period of evening-glow before finally vanishing almost one-hundred years later. With the spirits gone, the people believed themselves to have been forsaken by their voiceless gods and have since then turned their backs on the ancient ways, no longer tending to the shrines and paying pilgrimage to them. Even the legendary hero, said to rise in times of great need, was never to be found in the Shadow Era of Hyrule.


At least, not in the form the legends have shown in earlier times; unbeknownst to the people, the path to redeeming the kingdom had been instrumented during The Great Setting at the behest of the goddesses, however the knowledge of such a path was lost to the ages when the hope of redemption dwindled and has since gone undiscovered for centuries. The path was believed destined to have fated beings walk it once again, and through the instrument of the gods, the first step will be made to bringing back the Light of Hyrule and rejuvenating the hearts of the people.


For even in the bleakest hour, as long as one holds hope in their heart, then all will not be doomed to darkness. The people can only attend to themselves as fate deems a most unsuspected hero worthy of carrying out the salvation of the realm.
{Brazier of Heroes} - {Prologue}
Inspired by the Dark Souls© franchise and Legend of Zelda© franchise, we embark on a post-apocalyptic adventure with new heroes, foes, and challenges to be found! What trials will await our heroes, and what will they do to secure a hopeful future? What will they discover on their journey? Which heroes will we revisit in this current age of darkness, or are our heroes on their own from start to finish? Will the faith of the people be renewed, or will it dissolve to ruin forevermore? One can only find out by reading along this exciting new tale of the Brazier of Heroes!

Tip: Way cooler to read in the negatives ;)

Good morning/afternoon/evening to all of those that follow me! In light of my previous and ongoing poll concerning taking part of a Legend of Zelda fanfiction, I am currently gathering a "cache" of ideas and characters for upcoming stories that I will be making! I'm taking offers for mainly The Vanished Force and Brazier of Heroes, but in the future I MIGHT be making an Into the Wild series, so the offer would definitely be open for that. What I'm looking for in these stories is this:

The Vanished Force: (small-bit parts) Characters are the main basis for this, since the story is not finished yet and there is room for appearances of characters to come in the future. Ideas are not necessarily needed or required, but I still will take into consideration anything that the reader may wish to bring to the table.

Brazier of Heroes: (secondary parts, small-bit parts) Characters and Ideas are welcomed here, as I am still putting into a cache of my stories and characters to be added and the list is an ongoing sketch and process. If you wish to suggest a location or a place just to add, or even a character to take part in the adventure, feel free to bring anything to the table! I'm always up for suggestions, and there is little consequence to suggestions since the storyboard hasn't been fleshed out yet, nor has the map.

The Wind-Drift Post: (small-bit parts) Characters are welcomed here, since we'll likely have the main heroine and Toon Link being set as the main course, however having a fan-based character on islands or at certain locations are very-much welcomed! Ideas are also welcomed, if you want me to take the story to a mini-game in Wind Waker or do a side-quest!

Sands of Time: (small-bit parts) Same situation as in The Wind-Drift Post, the main story will likely feature our canon-hero and our heroine. If you'd like to suggest an Idea, I'm always open to suggestions and characters to be added in!


If you are interested in taking part, please Note me what you'd like and I will get back to you shortly after you send the message! I check my messages daily in case of requests, so you won't have to worry about TAT (turnaround time), and I will do what I can to accommodate and work with you! I'm looking forward to showcasing your pride-and-joy in my stories!
