This is awesome! I love how you created and developed personalities and histories for each oracle based on their elements. It was all very believable and obviously well-thought out.

Hmm, emo-Nayru, huh? Interesting how you came up with the whole "born in the wrong time-er, space-time coordinates" thing, though. It worked quite well. Though apparantly you saved the best for last. Yeah, I'll stop now.
So, the Oracles job is to remind outcasts they're not alone, huh? Sounds like an important job, especially since the way you portrayed Nayru, is a lot like me, at least somewhat. Though, I feel it's physically impossible to be born in the wrong place, the wrong time, b/c of how I see the idea of "fate", sometimes I wonder if that's actually a load of bunk.

I like Nayru's. It's really good. Please, write a proper novel one day!
I'm a little confused though. I'm sure you said she was thrown with Ralph in your main story. I could be wrong though...

This also was good; however, if I mildly surprised at how you did Farore (and yes I was), I'm really surprised at how you did Din. This isn't to say I hated it, though; I actually find your unique characterizations of the Oracles interesting. I'm excited to see what you do for Nayru!
I have to wonder, though, if the girls didn't find out their true calling, what would occur. Would Din wish to destroy all life? Would Farore grow up to be a cold-hearted criminal overlord? Those are the questions we are perhaps lucky to never have an answer to.
Will Nayru's life be characterized by asking these types of "What if...?" questions, and being obsessed over them? I guess that'd make sense for the one destined to be the Oracle of Ages.
Also, I'd have to ask, why do you make the Oracles the way you do? Will it be explained in MotS? If so, I'd better get reading!

Awesome. _ Very nice portrayal of Farore, and all for I don't remember how she was in-game, this is great. The idea of a girl who can't feel... anything, is terrible... and that bit about everything suddenly becoming unlocked when her mentor passed on the Oracle position to her, was great. How the Book of Secrets works, asking questions, having a true name... everything seems right down to how it could be, and there's a nice tone of calm detachedness in Farore's voice. _ Again, your first-person perspective wins.
Looking forward to Din and Nayru. D

Very good. I like the way you've used the Secrets Book. It's quite mysterious, I love it.

I liked that, though I never really imagined Farore was a bit of an...emo (not that I mind, I'm a bit of one myself). I mean, she always seemed a little more cheerful; though, I suppose she may have been like that before finding out who she really was.
Also, interesting how you seemed to have her be a native of Termina.
I can't wait to see you do Nayru. Of the three, she's always been my favorite! Though, I guess Din is ok, too; but, she's kind of annoying IMO.
I guess now I should read Matters of the State. I mean, if this is any indication, MotS is likely to be quite good.

Ah, sounds like she's from Clock Town. I like that touch.
Well-written like always, but I find her a bit... angsty. You could almost imagine Farore cutting herself, since she can't feel emotion. So that's got me thinking about the theme of secrets, what they do, how they affect us...
"Two men may keep a secret if one of them is dead."

Intriguing. So this is where Farore the Oracle came from. But why is she unable to feel most of the time?
