I've really enjoyed reading this. Your story reminds me a lot of George R.R. Martin's books. You have a similar sense of pacing which results in a slow read, but lends itself to the depth of characters and culture that you're putting forth. It's interesting how you've taken Ocarina of Time, which has some of the most basic characters and plots and transformed it into a story in which I'm not entirely sure who I'm supposed to be rooting for.
And you've done a spectacular job with the various different origin myths. It's such a nice touch to show how each culture has a different way of imagining their world's creation. In fact, the story telling in general is just fantastic. My favorite scene so far is definitely the moment with Link, Doro, and the Mad God/Anansi on the mountain sharing tales. You have almost all your other characters enmeshed in a brutal civil war and then you have Link traveling from place to place while learning stories from different cultures.
I'm looking forward to reading the rest of it when you find the time to continue writing. I'm very curious as to how you end up wrapping it up. It seems clear that neither Zelda nor Ganondorf will get what they've hoped for, but I'm not sure what the ideal resolution for Link would be.

Wait... Is Farore smitten with the Mad God?

"If blue says green lies, green says red lies, and red says blue and green both lie, who is telling the truth?"
I wonder how many people actually tried to solve that riddle :) So, I'm gonna try that!
If red says the truth, blue and green are lying. But blue claims that green tells humbug - and that would be a truth. Blue isn't supposed to be telling truth.
If green says the truth, red is lying. But red claims that blue is telling humbug - and that would also be a truth because blue states green is telling humbug and is not.
If blue is telling the truth, green is lying. But red claims that green is then telling humbug - and that would be a truth.
Darn, this riddle is tricky! Yesterday I thought the answer was Blue, but now...?
It also doesn't help that both the statement and the content are the same - it's really confusing!
I've tried to simplify it by putting it into a triangle (funny thing it features red, blue and green like the Triforce!)

I see... The death of a loved one has been the start of darkness for many villains..

I'm very disappointed. The story is awesome, but so much for "I will finish this." It's been over a year since you last posted and really want to read what happens next. Do Keen and Dark ever reunite? Is Link free? What about Saria? And Kattala? I'm so curious about the rest of the story. Please continue.

Interesting story so far; I'm liking the depth of your characters and the short stories telling about the history of the various places are nice to read.

You honestly scared me when you wrote that you weren't going to continue, I was heartbroken. You are an evil, evil person for putting this "chapter" out.

Here I am, minding my own business, reading a fantastic Fanfic... and Rabiyu dies. I'm sitting in the car with my family, and all I can do is sit there, mouth agape. Aaa! I loved Rabiyu! I can't believe she was destined to die this whole time!
That aside, I really love this Fanfic! One of my most favorites BY FAR.
I can't wait to see what happens next!
Lots of love, Cursed Guardian Limbo.

I wonder what is going to happen with Link, the leyline, and Kattala. Maybe he could travel through them like Kattala does? And I also love the way you through Ganondorf's story in there, though I am having great difficulty thinking of him as the bad guy, even to a small extent. I also think it is ironic that Darke is undoing what his bondmate went through so much to do.
Anyway, I absolutely love this story, and will wait very patiently (impatiently?) for the next update.
(You are a very good writer, so I'll be quite content to wait for a while)

Battle tactics, I like it! And a note on the homosexuality thing. I'm bisexual too, and personally find your story quite refreshing, as it doesn't only focus on gay marriage, or only focus on straight ones, but rather a healthy combination between. I love your story and am still reading it, even though I don't really review often, and where you get your inspiration I'll never know, but it continues to amaze me. :D

I REALLY had hoped that you would have made Link the Mad God's champion.
But no, he was only second choice and an obvious one at that.
These people talk like 20 year olds instead of 14 or younger.
Nice story so far though.

I loved the way when Zelda gave the ocarina to Link, he was free from the blood oath by which he was previously bound. You also did a very good job with the background work with the Midwinter festivities. I am a little confused though, regarding Link's parentage. It would make sense if Thereo was Link's father, except that in the first chapter when Nabooru first found Link, the mother had said that the father's name was Link and the child's name was Dakor. Because of a misunderstanding, Nabooru named Link after the father. Is Link's father named Link, or is it Thereo?

THIS IS AMAZING! This is one of the most amazing stories I have ever read! I absolutely love the plot twist. The original hero is Link's father! And he's still around somewhere! I will happily keep reading :)

I'm not sure if I have left any reviews on here previously, so I figured I'd leave one just for the sake of it. I just wanted to you to know that I am reading it, and I have been very, very impressed with it so far. It takes a lot of plot work to get a story this good, and it is this fact that gives me difficulty with writing. I will continue to read your story with glee, but because of all the politics (which are tastefully done btw), I sometimes find it difficult to review, though I loved that riddle in chapter 18 or whatever it was, though I'm still not entirely sure I know what the answer is. :)
Your faithful fan

Alright. It seems you want to make Dark human. However you're being far too obvious. Also, the time difference in their 9 months and our 9 months. Make him say 10 months or something. Right now it's sooooo obvious. And honestly, really predictable.
I like this story but ...
