Disclaimer: We do not own The Legend of Zelda. No profit is being made from this story, nor is there any intent toward it.
Notes: This story is a co-write between Shadsie and Sailor_Lilithchan, using ideas we have discussed and role played back and forth with each other. This legend is set in an “original Hyrule,” a Hyrule we have yet to see – with a new cycle of heroes, princesses and demons. It has its own Timeline specific to the story. As far as the canon Timeline of the Zelda games goes, the Hyrule of this tale exists in a time well after all of the canon games. References to a number of games are made throughout the text, from classic games to recent. It is a Hyrulean Western with some touches of the modern world and science fiction, but, being Hyrule, magic is paramount.
