However, I do own the rights to my original universe “Realms of Alerfa” and all of its characters. Maybe if you would ask nicely, you can write fanfics off my works. If you don't ask at all, then prepare to feel my wrath!


Story Five: Downfall and Rebirth (Link: The Hero of Time) (part one)

That fateful day.... Almost seventeen to eighteen years ago.....

Is a day that shall forever live in infamy....In both mortal realms, and divine realms alike.


It was a typical day for me in the world of Hyrule....Or, about as typical a day for I, the crowned “Hero of Time”, that is.

I was sent back in time, by Princess Zelda, after in my adult years, I defeated the dreaded demon, Ganon. Just after I defeated the dreaded Gerudo leader, Princess Zelda summoned the power of the sages, Rauru, Impa, Darunia, Saria, Ruto, and Nabooru, to seal away Ganondorf, thus, putting an end to his reign of terror.

After that, Princess Zelda sent me seven years back in time, so I can try to live life as normally as I I thought....

At first, my life was somewhat normal, despite running various heroic errands for the people of Hyrule growing up. It seem like Ganondorf was sealed away for good, and Hyrule can be at peace once more....

Then... Tragedy struck....Hyrule will never be the same ever again....


The day started out as a typical day...A day like any other....

I was running errands for Malon and her family at Lon Lon Ranch. I was helping them gather chickens that got out of their pens, as well as milking the cows. A thing I learned that helped milking the cows easier, was playing “Epona's song” on my ocarina. The cows love it when I play that song, thus, giving more milk than usual.

Just as I got done filling Malon's wagon with jugs upon jugs of milk, a huge explosion took place, coming from Hyrule castle...Echoing throughout the land....Causing shock waves in its wakes.

Right there, I received a telepathic distress message from Princess Zelda.

“Link....LINK! Please....HELP ME!” Zelda cried out to me in horror. “The seal on Ganon has broken!”

There, my heart broke, my palms were clammy, and my stomach knotted up like a fist. Zelda....The Sages....Their plans.....were all in vain!

I replied back to her telepathically, “Hold on Zelda! I'll come to your rescue, I promise!”

“Oh thank you Link....” Zelda replied in a panicked tone of voice. Then, another message came from her, as well as my old foe.... “AAAAACK! NO! NO! Please! Have mercy on me! WAAAAH!”

“I shall kill you my Princess!” A menacing male voice said to Zelda. “This is what you get for you all sealing me away in the Golden Land. I'll make sure you shall all suffer! Kya ha ha ha ha!”

After everything went silent, I played Epona's song, so I can saddle up my horse, and travel all the way to Hyrule castle. As Epona approached me, Malon looked over at me, getting ready to ride off with Epona, pleading to me, “Fairy boy, where are you going? What's wrong?”

“I'm sorry...Zelda is in danger!” I cried out to Malon as Epona and I started to ride off as fast as we could. “I'll come back to help you guys, I promise!”

“No Fairy Boy, please? DON'T GO! It's too dangerous!” Malon cried out as I rode off from Lon Lon Ranch. But I didn't reply back, as I was in such a hurry to help Princess Zelda get rid of Ganon once more. I cannot fail the Princess, after I we went through together...

I went on my way, not once looking back.


After what seemed like many hours, I rode with Epona all the way to Hyrule Kingdom, where people were being evacuated to nearby villages, such as Kakariko village, where the sage Impa was born. Dogs, cats, horses, carts, and wagons were plowing though the crowds, not once looking back, never to return to Hyrule Kingdom ever again.

I got myself off of Epona, ready to face my fate. But before I went on to the point of no return, I gave a command to my horse, telling her, “Please, go on Epona....Go on without me. It's too dangerous to follow me here. Go back to Lon Lon Ranch, where Malon will take good care of you. Goodbye...”

There, Epona obeyed my orders, as she galloped off away from Hyrule Castle, going back to Lon Lon Ranch, where Malon and her family were to take care of her. I felt terrible for letting Epona go, but I just wanted my horse to be in safe hands....that's all.

There, after plowing through the crowd of people and animals, I made my way to Hyrule castle. Just as I got to the palace entrance, a soldier laid there, on death's doorstep. Before his body grew cold, he had a message to tell me, a very important message.

“Please, hang in there!” I cried out, trying to reach for a bottle of red potion.

“No...Don't worry about me dear hero...(cough) (cough) (hack)” The dying soldier gasps, as he coughed some blood out of his mouth. “It's too late for me...Too late for the King of Hyrule...”

“Please! Don't talk like that!” I cried out in horror. “I'll go in there and save you all!”

“Whatever you do dear hero....Don't let the Princess die!” The dying soldier plead to me. “We cannot afford to lose our dear Princess Zelda...Please....please....AAAH! AAAAAAACK! (gasp)”

Right there, the soldier dropped dead before my eyes. But sadly I had no time to mourn his death, for now, I made my way into the castle, to save Princess Zelda from her sad predicament.

But good lord, I was not prepared for the horror that was to await me inside the ruined palace...


Right there as I made my way to the palace throne room, I was greeted with a rather sad and tragic sight. Ganon was nowhere to be seen, but instead, it was Princess Zelda. Only, the Princess was critically wounded, and bleeding profusely. I ran over to the Princess, carrying her in my arms, pleading to her, “Please, my lady....HANG IN THERE! I'm here to save you!”

Princess Zelda had tears flowing out of her eyes, blood trickling from her mouth, as well as her wounds, telling me painfully, “No...Ganon...He....He tore me to shreds....UGH! It hurts....IT HURTS!”

“Please Zelda....Here...” I plead to her, bringing out a bottle of red healing potion. “I'm here to help you! Please...My Lady...DON'T GO!”

“No! It's too late for me...Link...UGH!” Princess Zelda gasped in pain. “Please...Link? Avenge me, save everyone else, and yourself. You are my only hope now....”

Tears started to form in my eyes, as I said to Zelda in a somber voice, “Yes! I'll avenge you! (sniff) I'll save Hyrule...(sniff) I promise!”

“Thank you...UGH! AAAACK! WHEEZE!” Zelda said back, before lets out a wretched death cry, with her body now growing cold.

“Zelda...ZELDA! Please? DON'T LEAVE ME!” I plead to her, only to have her lay there, lifeless in my arms. I just stood there, silently weeping, as Zelda lays dead in my arms. I can't go back now. I have to avenge her. I can never back on promises I made to help I help, in times of need.

There, right before my eyes, an enormous shadow of a monstrous being appeared before me. It said to me, in a cruel, menacing, condescending tone of voice, “Awww! The Hero of Time is crying a river over the loss of his lover girl. Uwe hee hee hee! Isn't that so sweet?”

I put Zelda's lifeless corpse gently down on the ground, as I now turn around to face an old foe once more. This old foe was the leader of the Gerudo thieves, in a completely monstrous form, the same form I fought before I got sent back in time.

The monstrous form appeared to be a giant, grayish blue demon, with a long made of bloody crimson hair, pale amber eyes full of blank malice, a porcine visage, complete with the tusks of a wild boar, long demon horns, huge limbs with prominent fore arms, wielding two giants blades, a scaly reptilian tail, and huge feet resembling cloven hooves of a horse. It was the true form of the fiend Ganon! I am now here to fight him once more. This is for you, Princess Zelda!

There, I fought my old foe Ganon. We fought tooth and nail. Even though I did not wield the Master Sword this time, but still, I gave it my all. I wanted to avenge Zelda, and save Hyrule once more. I used bows, arrows, bombs, spells, the works, all on the revived Ganon. Every time the beast struck the ground with his massive blades, the ground shook, as if he has the power to create earthquakes. He also struck down walls and pillars around me, making a huge cloud of dust obscuring my vision. Even then, I refused to give up. I cannot give up, no matter what.

We both gotten our chance to strike each other with our weapons of choice. I attacked Ganon, making him bloody and wounded. He also attacked me, but I fought back after drinking the same red potion I offered to the dying soldier outside the palace, as well as the late Princess Zelda.

Now, I was low on my items, and all I had, was my sword. I never gave up, not even once.

“Your days are over you monster! Huff....Puff....” I gasped, feeling myself get rather out of breath.

“You want to bet little man?” Ganon taunted. His taunts didn't phase me, because I was determined to wreak vengeance for all the hell he put us through.

Even though I had no more healing items, not even a bottled fairy, I made my move, one final move, on the wretched beast. I drew up my sword, put my shield over me, and prepared myself to give one more final blow to the devil Ganon. “GYAAAAAAH!”

But there, Ganon did a very damaging counter attack, one that I shall never recover from. He screamed a beastly scream, as swiftly turns around, swings his giant blades, and there, he slit my throat with one of those massive weapons. I saw a huge geyser of my own blood being flashed before my eyes. Oh, it hurts....It hurts so bad....UGH!

“Mwa ha ha ha! Farewell, dear Hero of Time!” Ganon cheered in malicious joy. For those were the final words I've heard, as everything is becoming blurry, my body grows cold, now.....everything, is pure blackness, for I was slayed by the devil Ganon.

For now, a dark age has begun, in the land of Hyrule.

I'm sorry my Princess.....Please forgive me...! For I have failed you!
Here we are everyone! Part one of story five at last!

And thus, the bad guy wins, and darkness took over...

For now, that is.
