Vio had watched Blue storm off with an indifferent look on his face. "He's only upset because it's true," the boy grumbled, turning back to his book.
"Vio!" Surprisingly, it was Red who had crouched down and glared into his face. "That was mean. You know Blue takes things way too seriously!"
"Yeah," Green had chimed in, adding another piece of wood to the fire. "Now he's going to stomp around out there for Farore-knows-how-long, come back right before sunrise, and be all cranky and irritable for the rest of the day. Well, more cranky and irritable than usual "
"When he comes back, you should apologize," Red told Vio seriously. "He's had a bad day." Vio just rolled his eyes and turned away. Red huffed a sigh and stood, fetching his canteen and carefully ladling some of the still-warm soup from dinner into it. Screwing the cap onto it, he headed over to where they kept the emergency supplies and grabbed a few bandages, and then headed off in the direction tha

I couldn't feel anything anymore. My body was numb and cold. My breathing was weak and heavy, my throat burning from the heat. His footsteps were coming closer to my bloody body, his laughter mocking me as I lay dying on the ground. He kicked the sword from my hand, kicking a few fingers in the process. I barely flinched. I watched him as he bent down to my face level and smile that creepy smile.
"Giving up already, hero?" The white haired bastard, Ghirahim, asked maliciously. I grit my teeth and glared at him.
"Not on your life." I spat. He laughed again and stood up. He put his hands on his hips and kicked the sword back to me, smacking me in the ribcage.
"Well go on then! Pick it up!" He demanded, crossing his arms. I lay there for a moment, my body still completely numb. I didn't want to feel any more pain but if...if it meant saving Zelda...so be it. I grit my teeth and began to push myself from the floor. My body immediately rebelled and tried to get me to lay back on the floor.

Some people may think they know how the events of the Water Temple happened, but nobody really does, not even the Water Sage. Only he and I do, and probably ever will. He, the Hero of Time, Link, didn't have to face me at one point, then Morphia at the very end, no. He had to fight us at the same time. I remember when he came into the room, me standing on one of the platforms, Morphia brewing below in the pool-like area. He didn't see me at first, glancing down warily at the goo of the monster, unsure of what it was. When he looked up, I remember the confusion and wonderment all mixed into that startled face, blue eyes slowly widening. At first, I forgot where we were, and wanted to get a better look; so I jumped to another platform, closer to him. However, this was the signal for Morphia, as I had forgotten, and it struck.
I always wondered if Morphia had even really been tamed by Ganondorf, and as the battle continued, me hanging back, letting Link duke it out with th

There are many people in this world.
Not all have the life you do.
Life is a journey, one that takes
A lifetime to complete.
A unique path spreading forth
For all to live.
Sometimes we forget how
Truly beautiful life really is.
The sun shall rise on every day
And that day is beautiful
Because that day is
For all life is beautiful.
Even though you cannot see,
A symphony of colors,
Which blend together
And complement each other.
Sometimes we forget how
Unique each life really is.
The sun shall rise every morning
And that morning is perfect
Because that morning is
For every life is worth living.
There are always moments
Our world may shatter in
A single brief moment.
But as long as you remember:
Sometimes we forget how
Irreplaceable our lives are.
The sun rises in the east,
And so we shall rise above
Any challenge that threatens

His hands were numb.
Blue stared silently at the offending appendages, now mostly clean but still with several splinters embedded in the knuckles. He attempted to pinch one between thumb and forefinger, but couldn't quite grasp it. He sighed.
At least they don't hurt as much anymore.
He dipped them back into the stream, letting the cool water flow over them for a while longer, and tried not to think about what had just happened. He wasn't sure himself about the chain of events that had ended when he'd come back to himself to feel Red's hands against his face. He remembered being angry being very angry but now he just felt drained. Empty. And surprisingly calm, calmer than he'd been in a long time. And it was all due to
Red. Blue sighed tiredly, wiping his hands on his tunic, and stretched out on the ground beside the stream. How was it that the teen managed to slip past his defenses so quickly? Was it the eyes? They all shared the same

"For Nayru's sake," Vio muttered, tugging at the collar of his tunic.
"I know," Green's voice was edgy as he sidestepped around a pair of people haggling over some obscure item in the middle of the street. "This is mad."
The town they'd just arrived at, if one could even call it a town, was small and dirty, full of ramshackle single-story huts and small alleyways in which the two heroes couldsense people lurking. The only halfway-reputable buildings they'd seen were the inn, where they'd gotten themselves rooms, and the potion shop, which they were heading towards right now.
The people in this town looked sad, almost. They walked for the most part with their heads downcast, trying to get from location A to location B as quickly as possible, with near-complete disregard for whatever was in their way.
"Hey!" Green was jostled by a tall man who shoved past him, not even looking down at the smaller blond. "That was so rude!"

Evil vanquished and happiness all around.
That's what transpired in Hyrule after the evil wind mage Vaati and the dark lord Gannon were defeated. A new era of peace was slowly adapted, despite there were still many dark creatures running amuck. Without their leader, it seemed that they didn't know what to do with themselves. Attacking villages, stealing animals, kidnapping children- just to find them wandering in a forest or nearby the town with in the day. The creature's fighting skills seemed to fade and dwindle into obscurity, making it far to easy for the four heros to vanquish the beasts from Hyrule castle.

How did your mum even dare to send you doing groceries when it is snowing like crazy outside? Okay, she is laying in her bed coughing the hell out of her but you just freeze yourself to death out here.
You sigh as you press your arms around your body, hoping it will be warmer. It actually does not help, but you do it anyway. Snowflakes are whipping your face as you walk down the empty streets of your town. Your whole face feels numb, so you press your hands on your cheeks.
The only things you hear is the wind and the sounds of your steps on the snow. You are just fifteen minutes away from home now but it feels like eternity.
Nobody is outside today. A snowstorm will, according to the weather report on almost every channel and in every newspaper, come this weekend and everybody is advised to stay at home. Unfortunately your mum could not go grocery shopping because of her illness this week and you were busy with other things like school. And your bigger brother was just... lazy.

humming my regular song
as strangers pass by
singing one of their own
and a broken man
sits cold at the corner
with bare feet
dusting his coat with memories
belonging to a world
he must have once created
with his own will
I move toward his shadow
and lend some of my joy
I was carrying along
his eyes light up
and so does his heart
he returns a lost smile
that I take back home
only to realise
my song I was singing for so long
melodic than before

WinterIn the middle of winter, when all was covered in snow or ice, the mansion was full of nothing but frisky, crazy occupants who were given a long break from their tiring, rather exhausting fights. Everyone loved winter because of the snow, it was just so... purely magical, though it was merely frozen water in fluffy layers on the ground. The way the substance twinkled in the light made everyone's eyes lighten up with a smile. That is, before the substance was scooped up and tossed, the smile being replaced by a fiery glint of determination and pure rebellion.Winter5 years ago in General More Like This

Link rode Epona in the wilderness of Hyrule Field (like always when he has nothing to do).
It has been about two weeks when Midna left to go home. He remembered when she said to him, "Link...I...see you later." He knew she was about to say something, of course, something nice. But he didn't know what she might have said In front of Princess Zelda.
It was nearly night time, and the sunset was beautiful. More beautiful than it was when Ganondorf almost took over. Epona was panting hard from all that galloping around Hyrule!
Link made her stop and walk for a while, back to the Village. Link started to talk to Epona on how snobby, but really nice at the same time Midna was. He asked her what Epona felt about her. Epona just whinnied, and Link smiled at her.
Meanwhile, Midna sat on her throne for the longest time, thinking about Link. She thought about the journey she had with him. How he saved her world, and how she saved his. "that wa

The candle burned low upon the sleek mahogany desk, just barely illuminating the sheets of parchment that decorated your workspace. You rubbed your bleary eyes with the back of an ink-smudged hand.

Beauty in tangible form.
Truly a goddess,
She could rule any kingdom she desired,
But never could she conquer love.
With pleading eyes
Wide and sparkling with hope,
She begs the heavens
Not to cry for her,
Not to waste a raindrop
Or cast a cloud of doubt.
She was willing to go to hell
Just to be with him.
She was willing to leave
Her pulsating aura of light
Just to soften his darkness
Ever so slightly.
She begs for someone to listen,
The choice was all her own.
She was not forced,
Except by that force,
So compelling, penetrating,
She was willing to lose it all
To get her sole desire,
Her soul's desire,
How can she explain?
Surrounded by darkness
Which cultivates only
The most primal of feelings,
She follows her impulses at last.
Consumed by night,
She is hidden at last
From the critical world
Suspended so high above.
She begs the earth not to cry,
But to peer a little closer.
She was willing to go to he

It was another beautiful day. The sun was shining down brightly upon the floating islands known as Skyloft. Large birds known as Loftwings flew majestically through the clouds, calling to each other and diving beneath the main island, catching their masters in mid-fall as they whistled loudly. The wind from their wing beats tore it's way through the skies.
A blue Loftwing flew swiftly over a large stone statue of a goddess and landed beneath it on the stone platform. A beautiful blonde girl stood on the same platform playing a golden harp and singing with the voice of an angel. She heard the Loftwing call behind her so she turned and smiled.
"Here," She told it, "Take this to Link. He's probably still sleeping so make sure to wake him up!" She held out her hand, containing a letter. The bird eagerly took it and flew off. It soared through the sky for a short time then landed outside Skyloft's Knight Academy. It pecked at a closed window like a woodpecker at a tree looking for food.

under a cardinal-colored tree,
where the relentless wind
once twisted my hair.
The sound of church bells
always encompassed me,
as I sunk into my scarf
to obstruct the bitter air.
And as I read my books,
tales of murder mysteries,
I would begin to take in
the perplexing sights.
And the satisfying taste
of home-cooked ravioli
would warm my stomach
from the chill of the night.
And although the fall time
speaks of an eerie scene,
my train of thought still
consistently turns back -
To the memories resting
under that ravishing tree,
where puzzles of the day
would slowly unpack.
