| Eamil chapter 6 . 5/9/2014
Already I'm glad I kept reading, because it only takes a few chapters after the switch from revised to old to get better.
| Eamil chapter 39 . 5/8/2014
I almost wish these chapters hadn't been redone because now it is pretty hard to read the rest. I absolutely will, but these revisions are of such excellent quality that now I'm sad this rewrite is apparently abandoned.

Well derp. I actually just looked at the chapter listings. Thought the story started rather abruptly, but now I realize I started with chapter six... meh.
| Tahkaullus chapter 30 . 9/30/2010
Me again. Just thought I'd point out one tiny little problem: You brought Johan back to life...now I know this is fantasy and anything can happen, but the whole ressurrection sought of cheapened it a bit. The Goddesses can do anything right? It would've been better if one of them had wished for the Triforce of Power to be taken away from Ganon. I'm thinking Zelda. Then Link can show how unusually sensitive he is and ressurrect Zelda's father, seeing as we know jack shit about him it doesn't really take anything away from the story and we still feel sad for Johan.

i remember reading this way back in 05. I absolutely loved it!
And the concept of Link and Zel not getting on at first sight in OoT was so original that I couldn't say no to it.
You should rewrite it and send it to a publisher!

Wow... just wow.
i found this just today and i read the old prolouge. it was good, but there was nothing truly special about it.
then i skipped to the new prolouge and, holy crap! its amazing! Okay, time to read more story.
| Riku Courtier chapter 35 . 6/4/2010
Woo! I actually like this! I'm so reading this! Keep it coming! And be sure to update soon!
| Kamil the Awesome chapter 39 . 2/12/2010
wow...this has kept me hooked since the beginning. continue and maybe even update more often

I had read your original work and liked it very much. In fact, I had recommended it to a few people (whether or not they actually read it, I don't know). But it was a VERY good fic. I thought you got all the characters really well and even added in two that took the place of major characters (Sheik and Nabooru) without killing the storyline to make people stop reading. I've read what you've done now, and my biggest concern thus far is Link. He is simply TOO timid. In the game, he may cower when surprised or unsure of himself but he seems to stand up with a confidence to the trials placed before him. You had that in your original fic. Not in this one. I was wondering why the blatant 180. Also, is there any chance you still have the original chapters still? I would like them.

Definately saw a fair bit of difference in this. Interesting to make the relationship between Mido and Link something almost father-son like in the past. When Link got the fairy sword, I did get the feeling that something more, symbolic was going to happen, at least by the way it played out. Like Link would suddenly 'see' Mido, but not, it would be some kind of vision that represented the 'wall' Mido had become. Overall though, it neat to see how these chapters add a little more to the earlier parts.

Been a while since I've read this, though this is the first time I've read the revised chapters. Hope you're not taking too long a break from the Majora's Mask story, lol. But any way, it's cool to see how you've changed this to be more unique than just a straight forward cover of the original game. And after reading the manga, I even have to say it far more well plotted. The manga just seems to kinda bounce from scene to scene, making it seem kind of hastened (though the idea that Volvagia being a pet Link kept before the time skip was neat).
I mean, you can put bubble wrap on a rocky slope, but you're still gonna feel the bumps :P. But this story, like a few of the others novelizations I've read (Silent Hill and Ico) certaily do a great job of taking the stories into a new medium.
I actually recently started my own novelization (well, my second, there is a Shadow of the Colossus). This one is based on Steambot Chronicles, though I'm taking liberties with the open-endedness of the plot to help make Vanilla a more complex character than just either a goody-two-shoes or a jerkass.
| luz chapter 37 . 8/23/2009
fiu...finally I finished reading it all,so here are my coments:
kokiri stone:perfect,nothing to complain about,mido is such a jerk but still one of my favourites.
hyrule castle:zelda is not nice,wasn't expecting that but it's better than "I'm a beautiful kind and sweet princces" adtitude xd...that's so everywhere.
goron stone:the same,it's allright.
zora stone:oh so ruto is the sweet one,I would have like so see more funy love here.
geting in the temple: you brought ganondorf at the last
waking up:better that the game...about rauru saying he's the owl,there are some things that make that imposible but it did'nt bother me.
sheik appears and says he's zelda! was not expecting that at all but I'm glad you did,being in the temple alone in the game is one thing but having to read it...boring so if there are more people it gets navi but you just say hey and listen...
the masked man...pretty obious but someone needs to take sheik's place.
lon lon ranch:poor ingo,he's not that bad on the inside...
forest temple:perfect,you made mido realise the truth and it was a nice chat they had,glad you did,it's so anoying in the game...he has a fairy,wears kokiri clothes,has blong hair and blue eyes,knows saria's song...duh how can they not realise? they are my favourites so I got mad to the creators for making then so not smart...
fire temple: OMG...so darunia did the job,great idea
water temple: nice but I wanted more of ruto...does someone even like her?
shadow temple: creepy,after reading that I went and drew some mutilated but alive woman corpses...hehehehe...
dedsert temple: so nabooru is gone...fair enough,I like the character buy kylia is cool too.
lon lon ranch: family,yeah you made it obvious but hey it was lovely!
the final battle: johan dies,knew it'd happen...
defeating ganon: I'll be frank,I didn't like the goddess appearences and all that revival miracles ,and like it less for link staying in that timeline,first because it's way too happy and I think people need some suffering to get stronger,and the more important reason is you had thrown majora's mask to the trash! and I like that game,it' so dark and sad...I was expecting you to write it to tell you the truth.
the conclusion: old men! no
things I think it lacked:romance and...sexual tension...don't know you but if I ever get the oportunity to nurse link so many days...I 'd stare at him everyhour and have nosebleeds ...I'm such a freaky fangirl...haha...
and the crazy guy who's in the spining room,forgot his the cucos and that disgustingly loving pair...thay are not neccesaty but they had their charms...and more characters but it'd be difficult to include them all.
so now that you are rewriting it maybe you can change the ending...I'm not asking you to do it ,it's just an opinion,it's your fic after all,it's just that I was enjoying reading it so much that I wasn't expecting not to like the ending.
this is my email:
if you want to complain or something,I'll read the edited chapters but not now because I remenber everything so it'll be boring.

Hi! I've read a few chapters of your story so far (it's very good when you read it while listening to the corresponding music from the series plus a little added in), but I realized something while reading this chapter. Link did have his dream, after all, and he would have seen the shield and the sword that he is holding now. I think it would have hit him when he found the sword what he was holding, at least some sort of dread or anticipation. Maybe you could incorporate that into the story?
Also, Link is already clearly somewhat mature, and I can definitely see him fitting into his character as it is. I like it very much. I am not certain about this suggestion yet, but being, well, a great fighter, Link would probably have other reasons for avoiding Mido. He IS 10, so I can see this being fearful of bullies, but if you wish to make him more stoic, more mature, you could have him avoiding Mido for want of not hurting him. When being pushed in the mud, instead of being tearful, let him simply get up and take his secret route to avoid being confrontational.
The story is very good and I doubt I could write something this complex!

I see your passion in your writing (this IS your pride and joy). Keep the up the updates on the revised version, I want to read your work at it's full potential. Thank you for sharing.
P.S.- Shun Mido. i found myself hateing him with all fiber of my being.

I have to see the un-edited chapters to see how it was. It was obvious that the couple was Zelda and Link. I totally forgot about then until the last chapter. Also, I forgot to say this earlier, I think it's stupid to judge someone by their skin color and heritage. Judge them by how they act, not how they look or who they come from.
