The Lingering Shadow

By Wm. Jay Carter III (Hero of Geeks)


Being the third of three episodes composing the work "Shadows of the Past," which chronicles the events surrounding the Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.

In the first episode Ganondorf Dragmire, King of the Gerudo Thieves, comes to Hyrule Castle Town to seek an audience with the King of Hyrule...and swear his allegiance. The tale follows the Sages of Hyrule, wise representatives from each of Hyrule's races, as Ganondorf visits them seeking their "support."

In the second episode, Link returns from the future to warn Zelda and the royal family of Hyrule of Ganondorf's imminent attack. The Sages of Hyrule lay a trap and prevent the Evil King from achieving his goal, but at a tragic price.

This, the third episode, begins with Link, the Hero of Time, in Termina, a land on the brink of extermination endangered by a suicidal moon.
