Chapter 1: Hard Work
The young man was bent over at the waist. His body was covered in a sheen of sweat, the sun glistening off his powerful shirtless shoulders and back. His face, chest, arms and particularly his hands, were covered in dirt. He stood up straight, but slowly and winced, rubbing his lower back. He had been out here all day since this morning. He paused to take a break and put the handle of the pickax against his flat hard belly. He felt the cool breeze blow, the sweat off his body intensifying the coolness and he was thankful to the Gods for it. He reached into his back pocket and produced the handkerchief Ilia had given him as a present on his 18th birthday. He wiped the sweat from his brow and slicked his spiky hair back, the wetness making it stick. He looked up at the sun trying to shield his eyes and judged he had another two hours before it was eventide. His lips were dry and his throat was parched. He licked his cracked lips tasting the salt on them and breath
LoZ: Half the Sky... Part 1
LoZ: Half the Sky... Part 1
A tall young gentleman in a rather nice dark business suit and designer shades, walked through the double doors of the establishment. It was like most places of it's kind, dark and gloomy, with only the small windows, one on each door which were some what shaded, to naturally light up the joint. The bright, but brief light from the outside world upon his entry, however, seemed to make the patrons and employees run and scurry or at the very least shade their eyes with their hands like cockroaches or vampires... The rest of the large oblong windows were covered with sheets to hide the sun and preying eyes, with the remaining dim light coming from antique looking lamps that had little frills hanging off of the different coloured coverings that were on various end tables and also from the lighted crystal chandeliers above, as well as ceiling fans that tried to keep it cool in the enclosed space.
The smoke was thick, thick enough to
After The Twilight Ch6After The Twilight Ch6: Uh Oh...
Link awoke with a start. The dream he just had he had had only once before and that was when he was in a trance with one of the Light Spirits, Lanayru the Water Serpent. The dream disturbed him and he looked around and then down to his left to see the girl who would never hurt anyone, still laying and sleeping quite peacefully in the nook of his neck and chest. She had only stirred slightly at his movement of waking up and she seemed to snuggle even deeper into him. He did not want to disturb her... she looked SO Beautiful. He pressed his face to the top of her head and felt her silky soft blond hair against his cheeks. He sniffed her hair and she smelled pleasant, like lavender and lilacs... her favorite flowers and now his... He kissed the top of her head gently and she stirred a little more.
He looked out and saw the sun rising quickly in the late morning sky. He looked over a
LoZ:TP: After The Twilight Chapter 14Chapter 14: Ordon Autumn Festival - Morning
The Ordon Autumn Festival was held once a year every year in autumn, right after the harvest. It was meant to give thanks for a wonderful crop and for the great wealth that the goats provided them. The animals gave them wool to make clothing, milk to drink and meat to eat. They also provided the sheer raw power for heavy and other wise impossible or back breaking tasks; such as plowing the earth or moving heavy lumber, etc. And they were also a way of trade and wealth when it came to exporting them, especially to Hyrule castle, where the meat was famed for it's succulent tenderness, as well as beasts of burden.
The festival had it's assorted games of both fun and skill for all ages, rides that were man or goat powered, the yearly horse and goat races along with the archery contest, the sumo tournament and of course the huge feast at the end. All the prized fruits and vegetables that were grown that year and meat from the goats, were made
LoZ: A Christmas CarolLoZ: A Christmas Carol
Emily and her little brother David were laying in bed. They had just had their dinner, consisting of stale bread and cabbage soup and were now huddled together for warmth. Their bed, which was near the fire place of the one room rickety cottage, was made of wood planks, an old thin mattress with dry straw for more cushion, comfort and warmth and a blanket with holes in it. Their parents were busy with the fire and cleaning up and would be joining them shortly making it even warmer.
Actually, the two were still quite hungry. There was never enough to eat it always seemed and she being the oldest, usually reserved most of the food for her little brother, as her parents did for their two children. Right now the snow was falling gently and she had just blown out the small candle by the bed. It was made from animal fats which gave off an unpleasant smell and was a bit smokey, unlike the ones the church and those who coul
LoZ:OOT:Origins Ch1Chapter 1: Nightmares
Link awoke startled in the early morning hours. He sat up in bed quickly, choking back a scream of terror. It was very dark in the room, save for a candle on his night stand and one on the other next to Zelda. He buried his head into one shaking hand, as his other goes to his scarred chest which is heaving in and out rapidly. Cold sweat runs down his face, chest and back. He wipes the perspiration from his brow, as he tries to regain his breathing. Zelda sits up, rubbing his neck and back encouragingly, trying to soothe him.
"The same dream, Dear?" she asks tiredly, already knowing the answer.
"Yea... the same one.", he responds heavily.
Zelda pulls the covers from off of her and swings her long slender legs out of bed, standing up to put on her pink robe to cover herself from the chilly early morning air. She takes the half burned down candle from the nightstand and lights a wall lantern which removes some of the darkness from parts of the room, but which
LoZ:Twilight Princess:After The Twilight Ch 8Chapter 8: Sparring
Neither Link nor Ilia knew how long they had been standing there in the shade of the big tree holding one another... then again it did not matter. They were both lost in one another's kiss and embrace. The only reason they had even stopped was because the children; making their usual fuss over them being romantic together, had finally come back from the horse stables after they had brushed, fed, watered and also played with the horses, making sure they had gotten their daily exercise, especially Epona. And by now Beth was no longer dragging Colin by the hand, but she still stood near him.
Colin asked Link if he would help train him before it got dark tonight with his father and Link looked up to the sky and noticed finally that the sun was beginning to make it's slow decent downward. In an hour or two he reckoned it would be down completely. Link nodded and Ilia blushed and moved away slyly, only th
After The Twilight Ch5After The Twilight Ch5: Dreams...
After Link had finally fell asleep with Ilia still in his arms, partially using her head and soft hair as a pillow, he started dreaming of the ending of his journey. At first there was nothing, just darkness, then it became lighter and the sun was shinning. The Twilight had just been lifted, Ganon defeated and the four Light Spirits; Ordona the Goat, Faron the Monkey, Eldin the Owl and Lanayru the Water Serpent, appeared on the hill with a flash of beaming light. He saw Midna floating down and hidden beyond the other side. He ran to her, hoping she was alright as Zelda held back. He reached the top of the hill and saw something... but it wasn't Midna the Imp... or was it...
As he got closer the creature stood and then turned. What was once the familiar imp Midna, her only crime trying to stop Zant from taking over the Twilight Kingdom and destroying everything, turning her own people into slaves in the process, was harshly impri

The young man was seated in his chair. Grey cubicles lined the room where he worked and it felt sort of like a prison. You could not hardly talk to anyone and even the colour of the walls looked drab. Not even the soft humming fluorescent lights above could make it feel any less foreboding. But it did pay the bills and right now that was what was really needed...
“Just another boring day at the office”, he thought as he looked at the clock on his computer monitor and saw he had almost another hour before lunch. He sighed, then a call from his boss came in. “Oh great...”, he thought, what had he done or not done now...
He picked up the receiver and on the other end was the familiar voice of his manager. “Link, please come up front immediately.”, she beckoned to him. He acknowledged her, finishing up the notes he was working on for a previous customer and using long stri
Hot chocolate and a sleepover| Canada x Reader
" ____, do you want some marshmallows in your hot chocolate?" Matthew asked from the kitchen, wearing a shy smile on his face. You nodded, returning his gesture.
"That would be very kind, Mattie."
And so the Canadian put some small marshmallows into your cup.
"Enough, or do you want more?" he looked at you.
"No, no. Everything’s alright. Hey, they look like little baby marshmallows"
Both of you laughed.
"Let's start the movie, okay?", he said, taking a sip from his cup.
A few minutes later, you both sat next to each other and the screen lighted up, showing the main menu. You leaned your head on his shoulder, closing your eyes for a few seconds and enjoying this peace you only had, when you were with him. Shy Matthew had become used to such little things as leaning your head on his shoulder or kissing his cheek, over the few months. At the beginning he had been very nervous and feared you would dislike, when he touched you. To be honest, as you two

"You'll sees me everywhere."
You and America had just finished your idiotic planning. You being extra goofbally today. America left for the G8 meeting and you were left to your thoughts. You sat there, just standing, for about five minutes.
" . . . . I needs me a taco!" So you go get in your car, grabbing a small plastic bag as you left, and drove to Taco Bell to get yourself a taco.
Suprisingly the G8 meeting had been going quite well today. Italy didn't cry as much, everyone was on time, Germany wasn't yelling, and strangely enough America was very quiet. It made England feel weird, like something just wasn't right. And America's constant smile didn't help that.
Anyways the meeting was going absolutely perfect. . . . That is, until you showed up.
You slammed the doors to the meeting room open and all eyes were on you in your white tank top
My prince to the rescue - Canada x reader [CRACK]
This is officially the worst thing I have EVER Written in my life.
It had been a quiet Saturday evening.
That is until you had been kidnapped by the evil wizard Arthur Kikrlnadious and his sidekick Alfidor.You had been quite hysterical at first,Only to realize that both of them were complete dorks.They waved their fingers around in front of your face in black capes in a desperate attempt to scare you.In all honesty it was just sad.The way their plans didn't make any sense and the way they never got things done was just horrid and unorganized.As if they were some circus freaks with nothing better to do but kidnap beautiful princesses as hostages or experiment their spells on them.
It was just sad.
So very sad.
You somehow pitted them even though they kept you in a tower,tied to what they called 'buzby's chair'.They seemed nice ov
Reader Insert Prank Call 4: Gilbert, 911 Operator?Gilbert the 911 Operator?
Groaning, you flipped through the channels on your television. There had to be something on. Sighing, you decided to go with some random movie you found. It said it was a 'psycho drama' so you assumed it had to be either entertaining or interesting. Pushing yourself off the couch, you walked into the kitchen to make some popcorn.
You found yourself covering your eyes, wincing, and nearly vomiting up your popcorn throughout the whole movie. Psycho drama? It was just gory death, gory death, slightly less gory death, screams, fighting, blood, and terror. Isn't that more of a horror movie?
Sighing in relief as the movie ended, you took your bowl that had once contained popcorn into the kitchen. Flopping back on the couch, you looked up at the ceiling aimlessly. Now you needed to find something to entertain you again. You probably wouldn't sleep tonight, you had the movie to thank for that, so you needed something that would keep you entertained for awhile.
