Nice timeline! I liked how you spread the timeline out so far, putting hundreds of years between heroes and accounting for the great flood. Child-in-a-man's-body Hero of Time, child Hero of Wind, and plucky-adventurer Hero of Hyrule definitely were the type to hunt down a foe and make sure they were dead or finish them off after defeating them instead of leaving them to the authorities (Princess Zelda, the King, or the Sages), if they even knew about how Ganon wished himself immortal like the Hero of Twilight does. Twilight's ready to stab a bitch and make sure that stab sticks - no banishing to alternate dimensions for him (though the sages did try to execute him, I'll give them that)
"He really needs a hobby" Ganon does have a hobby! Take over Hyrule! But seriously, what does he do while he's pottering about for centuries building up his power?
They're in the desert! And it appears unaffected... for now. Was Zelda's areal spell smaller because she doesn't have the power of the one who made the Spell of Silence? Or is the desert just far enough away to have been sparred from both spells? I guess I'll find out soon! And it looks like Zero plans on doing something while they're trekking through the desert. What is his mistress after? The Triforce? Obviously Zero grabbed that sword - which I'm starting to think is necessary for getting the killing machine those wizards created tens of thousands of years ago before banishing it between dimensions. (Was that abonimation Demise? That'd be an interesting tie-in). I'm excited to find out!

So, Ganondorf is contained. ... For now. Even banishing him to another realm couldn't keep him out of Hyrule and away from the other two triforce pieces. Magical wards though, that's interesting. It might slow him down a bit; shame he's got the triforce of power. At least he's (probably) not the one behind all this.
Hyrule is now utterly silent. Once Link, Midna, and Zelda leave nothing will be moving in the land, not even the wind. I can see how this would turn into a legend. Maybe neighboring lands (not separated by sea) have already noticed that all living matter in their neighbor is stone. Hey, is the desert stone too? All the bokoblins, bulblins, and sand worms? I bet the Great Fairy was Not Happy before she to was turned to stone (if she couldn't hold it off and out of her cave).

The fact this story ends on an uneven wordcount when it was so close to being a nice, even 1.1 million words will forver bother me.

Thank you for this conclusion to this epic story! I'm curious if that hooded figure was perhaps Ganondorf somehow? I can't wait for the new story! See you then!

This was a perfect ending to this story and I loved every moment of it! You're incredibly talented in telling a story naturally and creating in-depth characters and Ganondorf was probably one of my favorites. I do wish that he at least got to know he had a son too but his redemption arc and a literal middle finger during his death was spot on for your characterization! Gosh I'd say more profound commentary but it's all eluding me as this story really sinks in!
Wonderful conclusion well done sir! A cookie and gold star for you! Bravo!
I can't wait to read the sequel and the epilogue!
Until we meet again in another story!

| CountOrlok777 chapter 16 . 8/2/2019
... so ganon has an adopted kid. and it at least looks like he cares for her and vice versa. interesting...

amphitre... isn't she the wife of Poseidon?

A solitary figure in a dark cloak? I assume that's either Cain or Zero.
In any case, nice to see this finally wrapping up. Cheers!

It always brings me joy to read your writing.
| icicle.c.cold chapter 153 . 7/26/2019
I seriously want to hug you right now.
You are such a good author, and now you are writing another story!
I AM SO HAPPY!
Thank you for sharing your stories with us.
I hope you never lose sight of your Muse.

So much to process.
Sad that Link didn't end up with Midna, although that's personal preference, and your OCs are awesome.
Overjoyed that you'll keep telling stories. This whole 1-2 is one of my favorite fanfics.
P.S.: EVERYBODY IS BREEDING

Ganondorf’s final action is flipping Cain off I love that.
I can’t believe he’s gone though... I wish there had been more of a reaction to that, especially from Kilishandra. (Which is a criticism I have of this story in general, that sometimes the emotional reaction from characters is kind of lacking)
Also Midna named her son Link... ;-;
I’m excited to see what comes next!

A fantastic story to serve as a sort of epilogue to The Silent Kingdom. Seeing these people during the time when they weren't just character motivation and flashbacks was more interesting than I had anticipated, and making Cain (not the dead one) a character with strong moral convictions created this sense of loss whenever Cain (the dead one) was acting out his revenge. Ganon's death felt like a natural end to his character, but who knows if he'll stay dead (he has a nasty habit of reanimation/reincarnation). Overall, just a superb 12 chapter story, though your take on Ganondorf will be missed.
I can't wait to see what you do with The Legend of Zelda: The White Mask, my mind is already turning fast with all the raw potential your hints are pointing at. Will TWM be happening on this story's page (would be chapter 154/155), or will you make a separate story due to the 20 year gap?

Just when I think you're done. You pull me in for another series. Curse you, Freedan.
That was quite the ending for Ganondorf. You either die the hero, or live long enough to become the villain and then die the hero.
