Violeta stepped into Faron Woods, the whole forest seeming to be trying to repel her as she did. It knew what she was doing here. She'd visited the other springs, and now she was here to drain the light of this one. After she did, she would move on the Ordan's spring. It had been three weeks since she'd been reborn as the goddess of darkness. In that time, she'd declared herself emperor of Hyrule. Vaati and Ghirahim were both her slaves. Ultimate warriors she liked to call Phantoms served underneath her, and the hero of Hyrule hadn't been since she'd taken over. The former queen of Hyrule was on the run, starting a pathetic attempt of a resistance.
As of now, Vaati and Ghirahim were in Hyrule Castle, setting up for the ritual she was going to use to resurrect Ganondorf. She had won. Her sister had arrived too late, and at the moment she was trapped in the dungeons. The hero couldn't return to the Light Realm. Violeta had made sure of that. She'd kept the scales balanced at first, until she'd learned of his journey to the Twilight Realm. The moment she did, she let Zelda's resistance win a few battles, and it never occured to the former-queen that she was helping the goddess of darkness. The scales now were tipped in a way that would trap Link in the Twilight Realm until Violeta tipped them again. She didn't care or know what he was doing, but it didn't matter. Not anymore.
She stepped down into the area of the forest that had once been filled with poison and as she made her way to the other side of it, it began to fill with it once more. It was black and sleek, like oil. And when it touched the creatures residing there, it changed them. Making them dangerous, even to Link. The gate that had been built to lock the monsters in the area turned to ash at her touch, and the plants and trees wilted as she passed by them.
The spring itself was protected by spells and gates, put up by Zelda and her resistance. Violeta was confused there, the spells were weak...too weak. Zelda could use stronger spells by herself, yet these spells were put up by many people. They didn't stop Violeta, and barely slowed her. The gate itself, made of plants and wood rotted and wilted as she came near. The spells in the air seemed to shine and glow as they sensed her grow near. And when she held up her heands, a purple aura surrounding her, they burned away.
As the last of the spells protecting the Faron Spring gave way, Violeta stepped into the spring, and as she did, the water became polluted. She stopped right in front of the center and raised a hand, her voice filled with magic as she spoke. "I summon thee light spirit, to be judged by I. If strong enough, I parish. If not, your light dies out, corrupted with shadow." As the last word left her lips, the spring seemed to shine, and the true form of the light spirit atop the lake, a shining woman, to bright to look at with mortal eyes.
Not at all to bright for Violeta though. She met the true form of the spirit's eyes, and very very slowly, the spirits eyes turned black. As they did, the pollution in the spring spread to the center, and began traveling up the spirit's body, polluting her. As the last of the spirit's light died out...the world shifted, turning to Twilight around them. Normally, this would've tipped the scales. The only reason it didn't was because Violeta had issued a challenge, and the spirit had accepted.
~Somewhere in Hyrule~
Zelda stood examing the map before her, wearing the same cloak she wore the first time Twilight befell Hyrule. The place their camp was in was protected from Twilight, the strongest spells and the majority of their strength focusing on it. She didn't look up as the messenger came forward. "Zelda, we've lost contact with the outposts in Faron Woods, and our reports say that it has fallen." Zelda sighed, closing her eyes as Fi answered the messnger.
"Tell every remaining soldier we have to fall back to Ordan. If we lose it, our base goes with it." The messenger nodded, saluting before she turned and ran. She was one of the shadow-walkers as Zelda liked to call them. They could go freely through the Twilight barriers, and if wanted they could switch the spirit plane, and the solid plane. They just couldn't go to the Twilight Realm itself. "We have several new recruits, and the most promising ones are these." As Fi spoke, she laid down a stack of papers with information on people and their skills. Zelda glanced at them before nodding.
"They're accpted. You know we need anyone and everyone." She glanced back at the papers, rifling through them for a moment. "Samuel Frost, Griffin, Miaya, and Diztruko. Send them to Castle Town to pick up some supplies and meet with two informants who go by the names Emma Dawson and Rem." She tossed the papers to the side, and circled an area on the map. "Then send Legna and Sarah to the battle taking place outside of Kakairo, and check up on that girl named Ash. I don't trust her." Fi nodded, and then turned to leave before pausing.
"There's still been no word from Link. Are we to assume that he's dead?"
"No. If he were dead, I'd know it." At least she hoped she'd know it. They needed Link, more than ever now. She had to believe he was trapped somewhere.
~The Twilight Realm~
Link stood outside of Sophie's bedroom, waiting. Midna was helping Sophie prepare for the ceremony, and had shooed him out of the room. He wasn't happy about it, but the ceremony itself was going to give Midna the Triforce of Power. At the moment, Link had it. It didn't belong on him though, and the power of both the Triforce of Power and Courage was eating him from the inside out. He could feel it. The power coursing through his veins, clashing with one another, each trying to gain dominance over the other. He could only imagine what it felt like for his original ancestor. After all, legend said that he had carried all three of the triforces.
"Ready?" Midna asked as she came out of the room, holding Sophie in her arms.
"Yea lets go. You both look beautiful by the way." Sophie was wearing a dress that Link had seen her in once before when he was looking through the mirror shard. Midna was wearing the same thing she'd worn on the day that Link had first seen her true form.
"Thanks. Let's get going, we don't want to be late." Link smiled softly.
"No, being late for your own ceremony is a bad thing isn't it?" He grinned as he closed the door to Sophie's room, and then followed after his daughter and love.
When he'd first realized he was trapped in the Twilight Realm he wasn't happy, knowing the danger the Light Realm was in. Midna was the one who'd gotten him to relax. She'd pointed out that there was nothing he could do as long as he was trapped here, and being upset about it wouldn't help anyone. So he'd accepted that, and had a sort of normal routine to do now. He'd train in the morning and Midna would play with Sophie while he did, play with Sophie in the afternoon while Midna attended to queen business, and then catch up with Midna at night while Sophie slept.
Now he was third best magic user in the Twilight Realm, with only Sophie and Midna ahead of him, he'd really caught up with his daughter and gotten to know her alot better, and was pretty much caught up with Midna; and still had plenty of alone time with her. He hadn't dont it yet, but he planned to ask her to marry him.
