Second Chances and Love at First Fright
At first Dark thought he was dreaming, then he thought he had reached the next world. But by the look of the clouded colors of blue, green and red around him he guessed he wasn't in the water temple anymore. He looked around and then at himself. His battle scars were completely gone, and he was floating.
Suddenly a black circle appeared before him. It got wider and wider and voices echoed from it. The Horrifying sounds and the blackness turned to horrid pictures of death and hell. Closer it got until it was ready to swallow him up.
"No! Please, No!" Dark screamed frantically. The void began to shrink and was replaced with a red glowing circle, like that of a fairy. "Why do you resist your doom, shadow?" said the glowing light, It's voice was that of a woman's. "I don't want to die!" He said with panic. The Red ball flas

Dark wasted no time studying farms and animals, and as soon as he knew what he thought was enough, he headed for Lon Lon ranch. It was evening and Dark guessed they would be eating dinner, which reminded him of how hungry he was. As a shadow he didn't need to eat. (which was a good thing being locked up in a room for so long) but he had not eaten since…ever. And he was starting to feel dizzy. Sure enough the smell of food lingered outside the house. Dark, having not ever really eaten before in his life, had no clue what the smell was, but only knew that it made his stomach hurt more. Being the rude and obnoxious person that he was, he knocked on the door. He heard a "what in tarnation" and a "daddy sit down" Then the door opened, with Malon's kind smile meeting Dark.
"It's you." She said warmly, but Dark could tell she was surprised to see him. "come on in." She opened the door to the

Compilations and a lot of talking
Link had lead everyone to the outskirts of Gerudo Valley, where the different races of Hyrule met to devise a plan to attack the Sea Pirate that had taken over their home. Zoras, Gerudo, Gorons, and Hylians stood in a circle around a large bond fire. In the middle was Link, drawing with his finger In the dirt, a plan.
"This'll never work!" Shouted a Zora soldier and a few other Zoras mumbled agreements.
"It'll work." Said Link with unfailing confidence. Dark had to admit. It was a good idea. But, how long would it take? He looked up at the pale moon. It was so close to being full that you really couldn't tell the difference. He sighed a saddened sigh and Malon, who was standing next to him, drew her attention from Link to the distressed shadow.
"Are you okay?" he face was filled with concern. Dark sm

Dark woke in his bed. He still stank of the sewer water and his cloth were quit ripped. His whole body screamed with pain, his left eye was swollen shut and dried blood was all over his face. Multiple gashes and bruises were on his legs and arms.
When Dark attempted to sit up his back became like fire and his head spun the room. He laid back down, aware now that there was another person in the room. A young man clothed in blue and black stood at the end of his bed, arms folded across his chest, His head was rapped with a white turban, only his dark red eyes shown and blonde hair poked randomly out of the turban. The middle of his shirt had the symbol of an eye on it.
"You," Dark said weakly "I, I know you." Memories flashed in his head, they were old memories of Link's. Shek? No Sheik. The boy's name was Sheik. He had helped Link on his quest by

Farewells and melodramatics
Dark rested his head back against the grave stone. One knee was drawn up against his chest and the other one stretched across the dirt. Both his hands lay exhausted at his side. He closed his eyes and listened as the poes in the grave yard shifted restlessly in their graves. They didn't bother him, and he knew why. The goddesses had not completely changed him in to a Hylian. He was still the waist of that accursed Hero. He was still just a shadow, only with Hylian strength and weaknesses.
How could he have been so stupid? He wondered. Thinking that he could have had a shred of moral decency. How foolish. He belonged in the Shadow realm. There was no place for him here. Malon would never love him now, not after what he did.
Dark got up and walked around to stretch his legs. The sun was falling fast and it was starting to get a little chilly. He had left his shirt and cap at the ranch, he had no rupees to buy anything, and after

The land of Ninoveah
Dark made it to the Gerudo valley at sundown. He had entered the Gerudo fortress before, when he worked for Ganondorf so he figured he would see if they would let him stay the night. As usual the fortress was well guarded, the enormous fortress built into the mountain side still over whelmed Dark. When he walked up the stairs to the fortress, he was greeted by three large spears pointed at his middle. Dark held up his arms in surrender, not particularly worried or scared.
"I am unarmed." he said calmly.
"Why are you here?" demanded one of the guards, who seemed to be the leader.
"Do you not remember me?" He said with a hint of pride, as if they would suddenly remember and drop to their feet in worship. Only, the Gerudo guard just grunted in irritation and motioned to two other guards to grab him. Dark was taken by the arms by two very strong Gerudos

Dark's heart beat rapidly. He was so tired and could feel his body shaking. His hands twitched and his back tensed as he felt the cold touch of an iron rod slide down from the back of his neck to his hips.
"Don't worry, kid. It wont be cold much longer." The evil voice came from Barg, who had Dark on the floor. His hands and feet were tied together but Barg had not bothered to do anything else. He knew Dark was to worn out to do anything, and he was right. Dark just wanted it all to end. He knew it was his fault for getting mixed up with Barg in the first place. He had seemed like just a drunken sailor, but now he had turned into a sadistic creep. Dark wondered if this was how Malon felt when Dark turned on her. Maybe he deserved the punishment ahead. He was to weak to struggle anyway and had just laid down and closed his eyes. Maybe He wouldn't survive this and it would all be over soon. But he had a feeling Barg woul

Illusions of a Life Not Lived
Dark opened his eyes, although he could not tell if it was morning or night. He looked down at his shadowy hands and saw a darker picture of the clear water before him. How long had he been here? He asked the question to himself every so often. Had it been years? Days? Or merely hours? Sometimes he even wondered why he was here in the first place, of course the memory of five little words always entered his mind to remind him.
"Why didn't you kill her?" It was the question that his master, Gannon, had spoken to him the night he was banished to this watery hell hole. Why DIDN"T he kill her? Of course he knew the answer to that, too. It was all because of Link, the so called Hero of Time. Dark was a fragment of the hero, created buy the Goddesses themselves. The remains of a little boy's sins. He could feel Link, his memories were in Dark. He remembered that little girl he was supposed to kill fro

The Consequences of Love
Dark moaned as he felt the cooling sensation of water drip on his forehead and ran down his face. Slowly he opened his eyes, which felt as heavy as boulders. The room he was in was dark and the only source of light was a few torches lit around the room. His senses increased more and he noticed his hands were chained above his head against a wall. He also had chains on his ankles and he was sitting on his knees. His right shoulder was in intense pain and was still bleeding. Dark wondered how much of his shadow blood he had.
"I thought you died." came a meek voice and Dark jumped a little. He turned his head to where the voice was coming from and saw Malon in a corner, her hands were chained as well but she could let them rest in her lap and she was sitting on the ground, unlike Dark, who had to sit on his knees. Her ankles were chained together as well.
Dark snorted a laugh "It takes more then that to kill me." There was a moment

The Shadow Inside Him
Link had gone though the plan so many times with him, Dark thought he could do it with his eyes closed. Yet the feeling of uncertainty lingered in his stomach and he began to wonder if the plan would work. The skill that Dark required for the plans success Dark had not practiced since the time spent in that room. He wondered if he was even capable of it.
They were marching across Hyrule field. The whole army. (if that's what you wanted to call it) Greudo, Zora, Goron and Hyrulian all marching together for a common cause. Dark could feel the emotion running through each one of them. They were fighting for their homes, their lives, it wasn't just a random act of killing. The thought made Dark feel very much alive.
The atmosphere was very different then what Dark pictured in his mind. In the war stories that Dark had read (when he spent so

"Commander Dark! Commander Dark! The prisoners have escaped!" The voice rang throughout the hall of the castle until it burst through the doors of a certain shadow's room. Dark looked up from his activities to see a panicked pirate.
"What happened?" He said, trying to remain calm.
"Link and Zelda! There were guards all around, and then POOF! Just like that, they were gone!" The pirates voice squeaked to a high pitch at the end.
"You put the princess and Link in the same cell?"
The pirate clasped his hands and began to fidget like a child when embarrassed. "well seeing as they're a couple, sir we thought…."

Out side was hot. Dark could see the ground waver and shift with the effects of the blistering sun. It was way to much for him and he removed the parka the Gerudo had given him.
Barg, the self proclaimed terror of the sea, had challenged Dark to a duel. Dark had excepted, forgetting that his sword was not with him at the moment.
Barg and Dark stood across from each other, the old sea dog had his sword ready for action and Dark raised his fists, ready for….whatever. The man that dark challenged laughed at this and motioned for one of his men, who gave Barg his sword. He tossed it at Dark's feet.
"Can't have you sword less, now can we?" He chuckled, and Dark picked up the sword. It was in bad shape, and Dark wondered how any swordsman could go out in battle without dieing of embarrassment with this poorly made weapon. But he was thankful, anyway, that he had something to fight with. He readied himself and without having to utter a word, both

What Hero's Do
Dark felt weak. Although his physical body had no harm done to it he had still felt every blow that Link had felt. And now, to his despair, he could not detach himself from Link. He was stuck, on the inside. And now there they were, hanging in the old familiar dungeon, the leak of water dripping on him. And the smell of sewer permeating the room.
'I should try redecorating.' Joked Dark. 'I seem to live here.' Link's eyes were glossed over and had the look of hopelessness on them. Dark sighed at his failed attempt to cheer up his other self. 'Someone's in a mood today.'
"Leave me alone, shadow." Link voice echoed slightly through the empty room.
'My name is Dark. Not "shadow", not "thing", not "that creepy demon". It's Dark.'

Last Chapter (XVI)
Only a Shadow
Dark collapsed down on the sunny grass, a smile filling his face as he relaxed under the shade of an old willow tree. A slight breeze brushed random hairs around him. Everything was so peaceful. Then suddenly the ground began to shake. Alarmed, Dark stood up and immediately unsheathed his sword. The ground began to shake harder and without warring a crack opened up in the ground and swallowed Dark, his screams echoing all the way down
Dark looked around, his eyes on full alert. He relaxed a little after realizing he was once again in the white abyss, floating in midair. His vision was blurry and at first he did not notice the blue ball of light floating towards him. The light glowed and then flashed. Dark covered his eyes from the light and when he looked back the goddess, Nayru stood in front of him. She smiled warmly at him and Dark couldn't help b

Eyes full of pain and hatred
The colour of fresh blood, fresh from the battle
Arms as strong as steel
A tongue as sharp as a sword
The only reason I live is to kill the one I hate
To gain power over my past
And to make him suffer the same fate as me
I have lived for many years
And have never loved till she came into my life
When I met her I thought nothing of it
She was young and very beautiful
I was using her at the time
Until she taught me the meaning of love
She risked everything for me
And I did not know what to do
The feelings inside were made me almost want to cry
When I found her, dead
Pain crept inside of me
Pain and anger
I told myself I was going to protect her
And I had failed
I wasnt going to show my feelings till the right moment
But that moment is long gone
And now I shall never love again

Because of him.
They had fought so hard seven years ago just to make Hyrule come to a time of peace... And a time of peace they had acheived, indeed. But for what? Seven years ago, she had known the answers to all of these questions, but they seemed to be absent now, as if they'd gone to a trip and had enjoyed it so much that they weren't planning to return. But why? Simply because she had finally opened her eyes to how her life would be from now on. She'd have to marry some foreign prince, a guy she had never laid her eyes on, rule Hyrule by his side and bear his children for the sake of Hyrule's Royal Family. But did she really want that? The answer was simple, unlike many others:

When you need a friend, don't look to a stranger,
You know in the end, I'll always be there.
But when you're in doubt, and when you're in danger,
Take a look all around, and I'll be there.
And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me,
I promise you, I promise you I will.
I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say.
I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be.
But if you'll wait around awhile, I'll make you fall for me,

A long plane ride in bitter silence,
Left alone with a crushing reality.
He was never coming home.
And we realize that no amount of wishin will bring him back to us.
But still we wait.
Wondering if he watches us or turns away in shame?
Wondering if he's proud of who we became?
Wondering if he will visit our dreams anymore?
And we wait in silence.

It was one of those times again.
Everyone knew that Loftwings were all different, all varying. Their likes, dislikes, faults, flaws, peeves, obsessions, and objects of affection changed from bird to bird, as different as feather color. One could love something as much as another loathed it. One could be friendly and another could be antisocial, save for its partner. One could be completely docile and another could be fiery and stubborn. One could be possessive of its partner and another could hardly care less if its partner almost hit the cloud layer.
One could have a taste for pumpkin while another could prefer the rare bit of Octorok meat. Some preferred specific colors to others. One might love to spend time with its partner and another might just want to be alone on certain days. One could dislike contact with its head or neck and another could allow any contact with any part of its body.

For only for a little while,
With just enough hope,
To last the next mile.
Happiness is hard,
Even with an open heart,
Everywhere you look,
You find yourself on guard.
Sadness is lonely,
No matter what anyone does,
Tears are going to fall,
Simply just cause.
The distance is too far,
Whether is the seat next you on a plane,
Or have to travel far,
And long by train.
Difficulty is everywhere,
Sometimes it's right next to you,
But even you know it's true.
Isn't that far away either,
Once in a while,
It's as simple as pull a lever.
Well that's the master.
With it and an open heart,
You can reach no greater pasture.
So don't give up,
Just let go,
With everything in your heart,
You'll never know.

how to really see.
Society teaches them to ignore it,
to ignore what they should see.
But a child does not bend to these rules,
not a single one does.
They see them,
the monsters of the night that are hidden by the darkness.
I know that you know what I'm talking about.
The 'thing' under your bed,
the 'thing' in you closet,
the 'thing' that follows you up the stairs to your room when the house is dark.
Children can see 'it',
hear it and they know 'it'.
Some feel it,
when the fear is clawing them,
that's the moment,
they feel 'it'.
They already were taught that these 'things' don't exist,
so they cannot see,
but they know 'it' is waiting.
So let me re-teach you the rules,
do not forget them again.
1. As long as you can see 'it', it also sees you. Use your blanket to shild yourself.
2. Do not make a sound.
