There are few video games that I will say are works of art in of themselves. That is, they have something that truly impresses me, or blows me away, in terms of presentation. These aren't necessarily my favourite games, but for the most part, they rank amongst them. Amongst these privileged few are Final Fantasy XII, Okami, Limbo, and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
It is the latter that concerns this work most of all. I've been concentrating a lot on Harry Potter crossovers with the Final Fantasy games, but it occurred to me that there was another fantasy game series that I could mash it up with. Namely The Legend of Zelda. But which game to choose? Well, Twilight Princess is my personal favourite of the series, despite some pretty stiff competition from almost every console entry in the series from The Ocarina of Time to Skyward Sword. But there is something about Twilight Princess that has it stand as the ultimate refinement of everything good about The Legend of Zelda. In my opinion, anyway. It doesn't hurt that it has some of the most epic boss battles in the series, with my personal favourite being the fight against Argorok. That is one of the most epic boss battles ever.
There's at least one story that brings Harry into this particular instalment of the series, Twice Branded by dawnriser, and while I will be using at least a couple of conceits from that story (although I considered Harry being branded with the sign of the Hallows before I actually read dawnriser's work in earnest, I thought I'd acknowledge here that dawnriser wrote of the same thing first), this work will take things in a different direction. There will be a non-mute Link (albeit later in the story), so if you don't like that, leave. Also, it won't actually get to the events of the game proper until the events where Link transforms for the first time.
Anyway, here come the usual disclaimers. Firstly, there will be spoilers for Harry Potter and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
Secondly, I will be annotating this work heavily. You don't like it? You can stop reading now.
Thirdly, this is an M-rated work for violence, swearing, and sexual references. You have been warned.
Finally, the following is a fan-written work. Harry Potter and The Legend of Zelda are the properties of their respective owners. Please support the official release. Otherwise, Zant will turn you into something nasty.
