Warning: This chapter is more intense than the others, according to what I have seen in anime this still counts as Pg-13, borderline R at worst.
Chapter 26: Demon
Dark stopped, something had changed, he could not see it but he felt it. The air was heavy, the hair on the back of his neck was standing on end, and suddenly the joy of killing fled his dark soul leaving an empty sense of dread behind.
Dark stopped short of killing his target and slowly looked behind him.
His comrades were in a heap on the ground shocked, both were staring at where they were holding Link hostage moments before.
The once helpless hero was on his hands and knees face to the ground, breathing heavy. The sound of rasping breath that came from the green clad figure contained a voice that was not his own.
Link's form grew dark, a writhing shadow aura twisted around him like a black flame. As the hero lifted his head Dark was startled by the sight.
His angelic blue eyes were gone, they now glowe

Chapter 15: Loss and Life
Link once again awoke in the safety of home, he was in the center of the large bed, wings carefully laid out and folded at either side of him under the sheets, his now lightened gold hair strewn across the pillow. His face bore the faint marks of the Tenshioni, the marks of the demon half.
Navi was curled up asleep in his hair. He was barefoot and in crisp clean night pants but no shirt due to his now permanent winged form.
Added to his collection of faded rosy scars was the red scar of the demon. A huge crimson gash deep in his flesh, dealt to him upon the healing of a wound that was cursed to never heal. A wound that brought him within the grasp of death only to be saved by a drastic choice.
Link's body was numb but a deep feeling of loss wrenched at his heart causing him to feel a pain that his nerves could not "Kaepora " he whispered softly not looking away from the ceiling, his eyes adjusting to the light. Kaepora

Chapter 17: Nightmares
Chirin was standing by the large dead tree at the center island of Lake Hylia.
The air was hot and the world dark.
Towering flames could be seen beyond the cliffs in the direction of the fields and castle.
A blinding wind surrounded him, pummeled him, and ripped at his wings. He could hardly see and hardly stand.
Black feathers blocked his view, a quick glimpse of red hair.
Suddenly Chirin was gripped by familiar fiery eyes and was overwhelmed with the shock of a fierce pain.
Chirin looked down unable to breath, unable to speak, a blade had been run straight through the center of his chest.
Chirin woke up screaming.
Drenched in sweat, his bed torn apart as he had taken on his winged form unconsciously in his sleep.
The dragon was growling and pacing in what little room it had to do so.
Link and Zelda came in running only to be snapped at by Yubreit who quickly caught his actions and recoiled into the corner trembling from the fact he had nearly struck them and fu

Chapter 25: Light and Shadow
The ride through the lost woods the following day seemed long and quiet as Link dwelt on how even amidst such happiness his mentioning of the pain of the past brought about such a spell of darkness and he worried about how these feelings left him with such a haunting sensation.
The four light guardians took on the form of glowing orbs for the journey. The trio found them as they came into the section of the Lost Words where Termina became integrated with Hyrule.
As they went deeper into the woods and entered Hyrule, one orb separated and headed towards the Kokiri forest on its own. Link sped Epona up to pursue, but Kaepora within Sheik hollered, "It's okay, that one found where it needs to be. Our job is to help the others remember. Well, it's your job. I need to get home I have some research to do, and I want to give the mask back to Zelda sooner rather than later."
The sage explained, "As we traveled, the guardians spoke with me empathically the

Chapter 13: Sacrifice
Chirin was helpless in the demon's grasp, Zelda in Sheik's form raced alongside Link on legs carried by fear towards their son not knowing what they could even do to help but each were prepared to give up their life to save Chirin.
Suddenly the demon screamed and dropped the boy who drifted to the ground on tattered wings.
Yubreit on his unique wings had lifted his bulk from the ground and latched himself to the demon's face, the dragon's entire body only as long as the demon's head. The chill that radiated from the ice dragon's flesh fought with the flames as the demon reared back screaming. The dragon attempted to dig its claws into both the demons eyes at once but could not reach, he instead tried to bite at the demon's eyes but was only able to render one useless before the demon reached up with both hands and ripped the dragon free from its face, claws tearing into Yubreit's flesh and sending the dragon careening thro

Chapter 8: A Time for Change.
Link slowly came to, he opened his eyes to find himself on his back wearing crisp white clothes under fluffy bed sheets, his long hair free of his hat and braid, his golden locks laid spread out across the pillow, Navi nestled in the golden strands asleep. He was safe in bed back in his palace surrounded by his family, Chirin asleep alongside him in the huge ornate bed. The soft light of early morning shone through the window and gleamed through the sheer white curtains that hung from the bed posts.
Link's chest was wrapped tight in bandages to hold his cracked ribs in place, his arm mended where the impact of Ganon sending Link skidding across the stone covered ground tore the metal of the Tenshioni gauntlet causing it to cut into him as a result. The deep cut on his face that he received from Dark was being held closed with strips of glue soaked cloth.
Link's injuries were not severe compared to wh

Chapter 20: Suffering Souls
Farore's Wind carried the group to the middle of the Gerudo Desert. The green glow set them down in the golden sand under the multicolored sky of the setting sun. They landed right alongside the Wind Sage cloaked in the wolf's form.
Chirin laid on his back wings spread wide, panting in pain as the drain of the magic he cast hit him hard. Farore's Wind is considered a last ditch effort of escape for it leaves the wielder helpless until they can recover, and a multiple move like he just pulled is considerably hard to do.
Link shot up from where the spell had dropped him, red feathers from his wounded wing falling behind him as he and ran to Sheik's side.
"Zelda!" he said not caring that she wanted to be called by the warrior's name in this form. The Sheikah was flat on the ground, holding the wound on the chest and uttering sounds of pain as Zelda within tried to force the body to sit up for gravity was causing the blood to flow more freely in this position.

This is part 2 of the story VS a sequel since it is a continuation of the same plot.
This chapter is a "slice of life" to get us all settled with the time jump but then we get right into the drama and action. So hang in there, things get good.
Chapter 16: New Additions
Much time has passed since the hero of Time nearly met his death and was left to learn to live again in a body torn between two forms. Many a year has passed since Ganon met his end, since the Demon of Fire was slain and Tenshioni were restored to the land.
Chirin has been growing into a fine young man, blessed with his mother's strong spirit and sense of magic, and gifted with his father's fighting skills and strong sense of courage.
Despite the fact they were living in a time of peace, Chirin, his father, as well as his mother, have made a point of staying in practice and would spar together as a form of training and entertainment.
The father and son also set out on quests to keep the many nasty creatures and p

in his Kokiri home,
was no longer alone.
A fairy arrived
in his tree-top room,
He must meet the Deku Tree,
for 'twas his doom.
He sought to break
the guardian's curse,
Yet found the horror
was so much worse...
Granted a sacred stone
for the way he tried,
All too late,
for the Deku Tree died...
Link set forth
to save the land,
A gift from Saria
grasped in his hand.
He arrived at the castle
in the dead of night,
Zelda, the princess,
told of her plight.
Stones lay hidden:
Atop a mountain,
The other perhaps
in Zora's Fountain?
When the jewels
on altar align,
One can step
through the Door of Time...

His hair is like my father's, wavy, blond, blowing about carelessly in the wind. He smiles like my father, hugged like my father. And when he opens his eyes, they shine with a vivid bluejust like my father's. As they said, he was the same. Everything passed from one generation to the next.
Except for me.
I hold the boy close, gently pressing him to my breast. My feet struggle down the steep hillside without the use of my hands. Ordon Village lay below us. My deepest regret is that I cannot raise him, cannot nurture him as my parents would have wanted, remain as a mother, and teach him all that the Hero of Time would have wanted.
Now I am alone, torn from he who would be my son, from he who I would shield from inevitability. I am forced to watch from afar, watch as he grows, watch as he loves, watch as he falls victim to the cycle that has befallen all those before him, all those who would choose unbound by destiny.
My path is not that of the chosen hero, no matter whose blood flo

Chapter 23: Termina
Three figures along with their steeds appeared in the woods at the threshold between the land of Hyrule and that of Termina.
One was Chirin in his Hylian form atop the pinto Fillea, wearing his father's former style of green tunic along with the hat.
Right alongside him was Link in an earthy green rustic tunic with his exposed braided hair, walking alongside his old graying mare Epona.
Behind them was the new Sheik in his armor atop the black Phantom, the sage was lagging behind a bit as he studied the landscape, reacquainting himself with the world he flew over as an owl so long ago.
Navi was in Chirin's hat, the little fairy had begun spending more time with the prince ever since that day In Gerudo valley and not just because Chirin sill wore long hats. She found herself forming a new attachment to the boy. Navi still spent most of her time with Link, but when father and son where near each other she would drift over to Chirin.

As of February 1st (and a few more small changes Feb 2nd and 3rd) the previous chapters have seen both small and large upgrades. Some of what was changed is important to read otherwise parts of the last chapters will likely leave you going "huh?"
I highly suggest you read them again before reading chapter 14 and 15 (the last) as the first 13 were changed to give the last events more significance and so the plot would flow better.
A summary of what was changed:
In the updated chapters we learn more about how the Sheik mask came to be and just who Sheik was, and we get a glimpse of how Zelda spent her 7 years in hiding from Ganon. I put a little more focus on the Tenshioni who left to find help/a new home, and I clarified the balance of demon and angel within a Tenshioni vs the balance within others. I added in that Dark nearly slit Link's throat when they fought in the future that almost was, this makes Dark's remark while holding Chirin sting more, there is focus on the scar Da

Link made his way,
Yet at the gates
a force made him stay...
As the rain lashed down
he stood outside,
And watched as Impa
took Zelda to hide.
He had no time
to find out where,
For then came the man
from an old nightmare.
Knocking down Link
with considerable force,
He galloped away
on his jet black horse.
Link swam to collect
what Zelda had thrown.
And held now Ocarina
and each Sacred Stone.
Then in ancient Temple
he set them in line,
And so was unlocked
the Door of Time.
Now he could reach
the Sacred land,
And keep the Triforce
from an evil hand.
Alas! A trick
had Ganondorf played,
When Link took the sword
his body was stayed...
