That was absolutely beautiful. I loved that story so much. It had the perfect mix of Zelink, with a hint of angst, and a happy ending. I loved it.

This story is brilliant and stands as a testament to the outstanding bard-like, quixotic writing style that you have! Words flow naturally when you right, you truly have a gift. Please keep writing more :)

I really enjoyed reading this, it was a great oneshot. Good Zelink stories are hard to find. I'll admit i was kind of skeptic when i read the summary, since mixing worlds is not something easy to pull off well (keyword: WELL), but you've done a pretty good job here.
This is a great story, however, it feels kind of unfinished. It is because your story had so much thought put into it, and you develop the characters and story so well that your ending seems like a strange place to drop off. Like after getting so many details on everything else, you just cut off the ending. I would strongly encourage adding another chapter, not only because I want to read more, but because you could expand and explain a lot of the things you touched down upon but never fully developed. The first thing that comes to my mind is, what happened to Link and Aryll's parents? Or other things such as the new customs in Loft, the courting techniques, was there any particular reason Aryll was blushing when searching for the baskets? There are several details like that you bring attention to and then they don't lead anywhere...
In short, your story ends on a cliffhanger, and in my opinion very much needs a chapter 2 at least. I really really hope you write more to this story, it has great potential and it would be a shame to leave it as it is. Don't leave it at an unfinished oneshot!

I was so excited to see you had new fic! It was a wonderful mix of canonical and original thought that fit together seamlessly. As usual you made a beautiful story that held my full attention from start to finish and made me love the characters just a little bit more than I did before reading. I haven’t actually finished Skyward Sword, but this fic resonates with the game’s style (and without revealing any spoilers) in such a way that I now need to go finish it.
As usual, it’s not just the fact your writing is superb that makes me love it. The little details you sprinkle throughout _Wind_ add a level of depth to your work that most fic writers have to rely on the reader’s foreknowledge of game content to achieve. I’m probably not getting my point across as well as I’d like, but I think you do better world building than a lot of published authors. Things like having a special tattoo for a knight with a Red Terror suggests that just by seeing a person’s wrist in Loft his/her profession and Loftwing would be known. The details about the monthly market and how Loft stays supplied suggest that there are a lot of sky islands with small populations that together form a community among the clouds, though they aren’t totally self sufficient and must return to earth now and again. Even just hearing about Zelda’s chores and Aryll’s work as the wind elemental learns to fit into her new life made that life more believable for me.
Then there’s the ending. I loved it. You introduced a different danger than the one mentioned in the beginning and while in many ways it was more dangerous and terrifying than the original monsters, it still fit organically as the Skytails were a natural and normal danger that could appear at any time. When Zelda fell… that was the key moment in this story. I knew it would happen as you kept foreshadowing it, but I was impressed by how you turned it into a moment of rebirth for Zelda. That descent is when she finally shed her grief and regrets, which was the only way she could ever truly live again. Catharsis is not without cost and while Zelda’s was a little more physical than most, I appreciate the fact you included it. There is always a cost to living and sometimes it’s expensive. That’s something I wouldn’t have thought to include, which is you’re the one writing moving stories. Thank you for writing this.

Lyxie! Your stories are always lovely. You have a talent for creating interesting and compelling AUs, while still staying true to canon. I'm definitely your fan!
