The Museum of Hyrule reviews
Zelda is a policy analyst with political connections in high places. Ganondorf is a museum curator who possesses evidence of a hidden history that Zelda only suspects. Together they will bring Hyrule's dark secrets to light. Contemporary AU Zelgan, some smut but mostly plot.

The Marriage of Lanayru reviews
At the end of Twilight Princess, Hyrule is politically unstable and in ruins. Instead of having Link kill Ganondorf, Zelda decides to marry him. Both Zelda and Ganondorf act according to their own interests, but perhaps they are not as ill-suited for each other as they assume. Zelgan smut with a bit of speculative worldbuilding.

In the far future, when Hylians once again live in the sky, the capture of a man threatening the peace and stability of Hyrule promises the end of a long and bitter war. When Zelda attempts to interrogate her prisoner, he spirits her away to a mysterious temple, showing her what the land below the clouds has become and what it once was.

Ganondorf is a successful businessman who emigrated from Papuchia and is now raising his headstrong niece Tetra in Castle City, the capital of New Hyrule.

The Legend of the Princess reviews
Disturbed by ill omens, Zelda uncovers the fabled Ocarina of Time. As the princess sees more of the past, she begins to learn about the sinister man who has been been blown by the harsh winds of the desert into her castle. If she is wise enough to piece together the puzzles left behind in bygone ages, Zelda may be able to change both of their destinies. Pre-WW AU Zelgan

Behind Closed Doors reviews
While vacationing on Dinosaur Island, Peach is visited by Bowser, who asks her to help fix a magical accident. As she has in the past, Peach agrees to come with him to his castle, but the problem he's created is not easily solved. Peach and Bowser know they need to put things right before Mario arrives, but they find their progress stymied by pointless arguments. BowserxPeach

A Game of Castles reviews
Princess Peach has been kidnapped and taken to the Koopa Kingdom, but Bowser had nothing to do with it.

The Modern History of Zelda reviews
In an era of exploration and innovation, two ageless souls are reborn. As Zelda and Ganondorf gradually learn more about each other and uncover the secrets buried beneath their respective kingdoms, they struggle to free themselves from the bindings of an endless conflict. A Zelgan story set in an AU loosely based on OoT with an emphasis on worldbuilding and eventual smut.

Ganondorf&! reviews
Ganondorf translates Ancient Hylian, and Bowser runs a neighborhood flower shop. They're in love, and everyone knows it except them. This story is about two gay dads and their two garbage sons, as well as their shitty friend from college and the three girls who live next door. Ganondorf/Bowser
