The deadened moss crunched under the Princess Zelda's leather heel as she turned for the second counterclockwise circle around her work. The directions were very precise. They had to be. No matter how badly they had been written, carried in the hands of some foul shaman, there was nothing broad or vague about it.
The veil was a terrible, exacting thing, after all. It was a strong magic that kept mortals out of the Dark Realm, out of that hell of tormented souls and black reflections. Errors would be fatal, catastrophic. A ritual of such a dire caliber required precision. The runes cut into the broken dirt were perfect, the circle marked without a wobble or break.
Wisdom might have sufficed, she knew. But she knew only a dull fear when it came to summoning this Shadow. She was bringing forth a destroyer of kingdoms, a demon that had been sealed away by the efforts of her ancestors time and time again. She would rather Darkness call Darkness. Defiling herself w

Zelda looked at Peach, who seemed oblivious to the tense atmosphere. The other princess was dressed much differently than usual, in a pink blouse with white lace trim, pale purple slacks, sandals, and a red ribbon that held her hair in a ponytail. In contrast, Zelda didn't dress as casually. In fact, all she really did was remove her purple vest, the accessories attached to it, and her gloves. She had even kept her circlet on, for crying out loud. And those in front of them, who continued watching her, had all come in their usual outfits -- even though this didn't mean much for Bowser. So much for an air of informality.
"So?" Bowser piped up, placing his teacup down on the floor. Peach winced a little, probably thinking of it getting scratched or dirty, but said nothing. "Are you gonna s

Part I: Zelda
The Princess Zelda had not wished to sit idly by while she saw her Kingdom warp around her. She saw most everything, though few who knew her could guess it. She related it to being trapped atop a high tower, to look at all the ants below as they marched in formation. She could pick out the tiniest aberration, the smallest upset in the pattern. And she could see that one minute instant in time birth a wake of chaos.
However, in this case it was not a tiny disturbance but a large one. And it did not leave a wake but a coastcrusher wave behind it. It began with the death of her father, and instead of the throne passing to her it passed to Duke Lanaryu, who held the castle in his duchy. She could do little, and not for the first time she cursed her late father's will, and that he distrusted her for the mark on her hand when it allowed her to see so much more than he did.
Such was the nature of fear, she knew. And so
The Crown Princess Zelda sat upon the Royal Throne of Hyrule, head set demurely to one side and eyes closed as she listen to her head advisor, the man that her father had appointed to guide her before he died. To all the court, she appeared to be calm and serene. Yet the Princess struggled to contain her rising ire, her need to lash out at this condescending man and his foolish suggestions.
"It is not within the nature of the Gorons to fight," he told her, in that wheedling voice that she detested so much. "They are skilled with their hands, but simple in mind, and cowards to boot. You should show a strong hand."
Her advisor, Duke Reyton, resembled a weed in his tall, skinny stature, as well as his tendency to bow at every other moment. He had a thin, foxlike face, and wore expensive yet subdued silks. He was no fop, and certainly no fool; he had a sinister purpose behind his bad advice. And Zelda was not about to let him fulfill it.
"I hear you, Duke Reyton," she said softly and with

The Legend of Zelda series has been around for well over a decade, and is one of Nintendo's best-selling video game franchises. This series of action-puzzle-adventure games revolve around a single protagonist, Link, as he journeys through the kingdom of Hyrule to save the princess Zelda from the evil sorcerer-warlord Ganon, usually with the help of a trusty sidekick that aids him through difficult puzzles. Although over ten different games have been made, they all contain very similar archetypes and revolve around the same general plot framework: naming of the franchise the 'Legend' of Zelda, rather than simply a series of chronological stories.
On March 27, 2003, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker came out for the Nintendo Gamecube in the United States as the tenth installment in the popular series. This installment, although many of the same elements appear, uses a heavily different plot framework than the previous Zelda games. For i
