Reminder: this is a Link x Mido fic, not a Link x Midna!
Mido and Link made it through the tunnel to the other part of Faron Woods. It was, once again, filled with poisonous gas. This caused Link to sigh.
“Just what we needed,” he said, “poisonous gas.”
Mido looked around and then up at the sky. An idea popped into his head.
“Which way do we need to go again for the last five bugs?” he asked.
“To the west of here,” answered Link, “but there might be some here. There was last time at least. With Midna’s help I jumped all of the gaps, and there we’re buuuu ah!”
Mido had picked up Link and was slowly going up.
“Shout if you see one,” Mido said.
“And what about the ones that are buried underground,” asked Link.
“If you see a spot that might have a bug underground then point it out,” Mido answered.
It took them a bit to locate four of the five bugs. After that Mido flew them to where the forest temple’s entrance was. Link spotted the last bug right away. He killed it, and their light entered the vessel. The Twilight receded, and Link and Mido returned to their usual selves.
“That is all eight,” said Link, “now we just need to get this back to the spirit spring….”
He noticed that Mido wasn’t listening and was staring at the forest temple.
“Mido?” Link asked.
“Did you know most of this place was under water once?” Mido asked.
“No,” answered Link, “I didn’t.”
“Well it was,” said Mido, “about a hundred years ago. That huge tree was once the Great Deku Tree.”
“The Great Deku Tree?” Link wondered.
“He had a face and could talk,” said Mido, “he guarded and guided us, the Kokiri. Of course, during the great flood, the Kokiri evolved into the Koroks.”
Mido was silent for a moment. Link frowned when he noticed tears running down Mido’s cheeks.
“The Deku Tree died when the water receded,” Mido continued, “without someone to guide and protect them, the Koroks panicked….they soon died out….”
Mido was sobbing now. Link did the only thing he could do and hugged and comfort Mido. Link understood and pity Mido. Not only was he the last of his kind, but watched helplessly as his people died out. It was a while before Mido calmed down.
“I’m sorry,” Mido apologized while letting go of Link.
“Don’t be,” said Link, “I would be the same way.”
Mido gave him a small smile before sighing.
“Link,” came Midna’s voice, “Mido. Can you hear me?”
‘Yes we can,” answered Link.
“We found out who is behind the Twilight leak-ish,” said Midna, “meet me where the path from Faron Forest ends, and the path through Hyrule Field begins. I’ll explain everything then.”
“All right,” said Link, “meet you there.”
“We shouldn’t keep her waiting,” said Mido.
Link gave him a worried look.
“I’ll be fine,” Mido reassured him.
Link nodded. They left and returned the vessel of light before heading out of the forest. They spotted Midna at the entrance of Hyrule Fields. Midna smiled at Link but frowned at Mido. The Kokiri looked demoralized. Link shook his head signifying that she shouldn’t ask. Midna nodded and cleared her throat.
“Thanks for coming,” she started, “as I had stated that we found out who is behind all of this and you’re not going to like it.”
“Who is it?” he asked.
“A creature that calls himself Ganondorf,” answered Midna, “but he isn’t. He is but his shadow. A shadow that has a bit of the original Ganondorf’s power.”
Link nodded before noticing Mido looking a bit alarmed. He followed Mido’s gaze to the curtain of Twilight that covered Castle Town. It started to fade before disappearing altogether.
“Ah so it worked,” commented Midna.
Both, Link and Mido, looked at her.
“We found a potential way of getting rid of the Twilight,” Midna explained, “since it worked we can get rid of the rest while you two go and warn Princess Zelda about the shade.”
“Be safe,” said Midna while the two walked away.
Mido was holding onto Link’s arm for dear life while they walked through Castle Town. He was watching all of the people they walked by.
“I take it you don’t like crowds,” said Link.
Mido shook his head.
“I’m sort of use to big crowds,” he said, “but this. This is beyond big.”
“Don’t worry,” he said, “we’re almost to the castle gate.”
It took them a bit longer to weave through the crowds to get to the gate. The guards recognized Link and let him and Mido through. It was a while longer for them to climb up the last set of stairs. Mido was huffing and puffing.
“Who in their right mind would put a throne room up on the very top of a castle?” he asked between breaths.
“Not a clue,” answered Link huffing and puffing as well.
They entered the throne room. Zelda got up from the throne and smiled when she saw Link. Link and Mido bowed.
“It is wonderful to see you again Link,” said Zelda before frowning, “I take it you are not here to catch up.”
Link shook his head.
“The Twilight is back,” he said, “and it’s being controlled by Ganondorf’s shade.”
Zelda was now on high alert.
“Tell me all you know,” she said.
Sorry for the long wait. Life happened.

Link was allowed to to sit up, but not to get out of bed. Mido brought him some soup.
“Now be careful,” Mido warned, “it’s still hot.”
Link nodded and blow on a spoon full of it. He ate it.
“This is good,” he complemented.
“Thank you,” Mido said with a small blush.
“Where did the wolf and Dark go?” Link asked.
“I sent them to help protect Ordon,” Mido answered.
Link nodded. Mido had told him what had happen. Link kicked him self for gotten beaten. He looked at Mido.
“You look familiar,” he said.
“I was the one that brought you to the village,” Mido said.
“Oh yeah,” Link said, “you looked pretty then, too.”
Mido blushed some more. He cleared his throat.
“You should be able to leave tomorrow,” he said.
Link nodded and took another spoon full of soup.
“Do all Kokiri control plant life?” he asked wanting to understand Mido’s race.
Mido shook his head.
“Only two could,” he answered, “I’m the stronger one though due to age.”
“And how old are you exactly?” Link asked.
“A bit over 400,” Mido answered.
Link’s eyes widen.
“You’re also the 5th Link I meet in my life time,” Mido said.
“Must be hard to remember which Link is who,” commented Link.
Mido laughed causing Link’s heart to skip a beat.
“At times I find my self thinking Time is a different Link,” Mido admitted, “though you kind of look like him too.”
Link smiled and chuckled.
“Oh you’re done,” Mido said taking Link’s emptying bowl away.
He went clean it. Link sighed and smiled when he herd Mido humming.
He’s interesting and pretty, he thought.
The kids were watching Colin practice with his sword. Time and Dark stopped.
“I would meld into the shadows,” Time whispered.
“Yeah,” Dark whispered, “try not to scare anyone.”
Time rolled his eye as Dark faded away. Time watched the kids for a bit before he laid down under Epona. The horse nudged Time’s head.
“Hey now,” he whispered, “I’m not your Link.”
With a lick Epona went back to grazing.
“Can you do the spin attack that Link can do yet?” Beth asked.
Colin blushed. He turned to her.
“Not very well,” he answered, “I still need more – is that a golden wolf?”
The others looked over at Time. Time’s ears fell flat against his head. He didn’t like the looks the children were giving him. Beth squeed and ran to Time. She hugged him tightly.
“Aren’t you the cutest thing,” she said, “yes you are.”
Time whimpered. The others came to him and started petting and tugging on his fur.
“Whoa now,” came Ilia’s voice, “stop pulling at his fur or he’ll bite you. He doesn’t look like hes enjoying it..”
The children stopped. Time sighed in relief. Epona snorted and shook her head when a shadow darted off. Time rolled his eye again.
Figures he’ll stay and watch my suffering, he thought.
The children went back to watching Colin practice with his sword. Time glanced back to the entrance of the forest. His ears would turn to every little sound as well.
It’s like he’s looking out for something, Ilia thought.
“You’re one of Prince Mido’s friends,” she said, “aren’t you?”
Time looked back at her and nodded. Ilia smiled.
“Thank you then,” she said.
Time nodded again and went back to looking around.
A day past and Link was fine enough to go home. Mido was checking him one more time. Mido smiled. Link blushed.
“Now we’re going to have to walk back,” Mido said, “I don’t have a horse and I don’t want to put Epona in danger.”
“Okay,” Link said a bit sadly.
“She’s at Ordon,” Mido said, “you get to see her then.”
That wasn’t what Link was sad about. He was going to miss Mido. He hugged him, causing Mido to blush.
“Thanks for taking care of me,” Link said.
“You’re welcome,” Mido said returning the hug.
They got ready and left Mido’s home.
“You know,” Link started half way through their journey, “you look like you just hit 20.”
Mido frowned and looked a head.
“I’m sorry,” Link apologized after noticing Mido’s look.
“No it’s alright,” Mido said, “some events happened with the Twili that cause me to be cursed. The once great deku tree cured me, but at a cost. I was to age slowly. My kind wasn’t suppose to to began with.”
“Was there no other way?” he asked.
Mido shook his head. Link looked a head. He felt very bad about what happened to Mido.
“I dislike the Twili because of it,” said Mido.
Link looked back at Mido.
“Not all of them are like that,” he said remembering Midna.
Mido’s eyes narrowed. He crossed his arms, and stopped.
“You’re friends with one aren’t you?” he asked.
Link swallowed and nodded. Mido sighed.
“Just watch your back when around Midna,” Mido warned, “she’s their princess after all.”
Link just nodded. He knew he could trust Midna. After all they have been through a lot together.
The kids were laughing as they talked and played around. Russell was watching them. He was making sure nothing came to harm them. He looked over at Time, who was on alert. Russell found him a bit interesting. Time’s ears twitched and he sniffed the air. He stood up and his tail wagged. He raced to the entrance.
Must have smelt something, Russell thought.
He, then, noticed Epona sniffing the air. She naaed and ran past Time. Russell was now curious, Epona’s hooves sounded as she walked back with someone. It was Link and Mido.
“Link!” The kids shouted and ran to him.
Link smiled and got on his knees so they could hug him. Mido smiled. Russell did as well before he saw a shadow dart across. The shadow grew and a dark version of Link stepped out.
“Mido,” he said, “we have a problem.”
Dark pointed up wards to the east. Everyone looked. A certain of Twilight was heading to them at an alarming speed.
“Link,” started Mido.
“Going,” interrupted Link as he headed up to his home to get ready for a fight.
“Come children,” Russell said ushering them back home to safety.
Link came back down with his green clothes and sword and shield on. He looked up . The Twilight was almost to his house.
“I suggest we move back to the village,” said Time.
“I agree,” Link said taking Epona’s reins.
He lead her to the village with everyone else. The Twilight grew and grew ’till it covered the village at last.
“Um Time,” said Dark, “were is Link and Mido?”
Time looked around. All he saw was Epona.
“Oh no,” he said.
Link opened his eyes. He was on four legs. He looked at what should have been his hands that was now paws.
Great, he thought, I’m a wolf again.
“That’s weird,” came the voice of Mido, “I usually turn into some type of monster when expose to Twilight.”
Link looked and gasped. Mido still had his orange-ish red hair and blue eyes, but his skin was white and black like a Twili. He had their strange markings too except his glowed green. The emerald, on his crown, glowed too. Mido looked over to Link. He blushed when he noticed him staring at him. Link coughed and looked around.
“I think we should start looking for away to lift this,” he suggested.
Mido nodded in agreement. They had cross the bridge when Link noticed Mido looking at something. Mido looked back at Link with a glare. Link’s head lowered and his ears fall flat against his head.
“Think she’s your friend now?” Mido asked.
Link’s ears shot up and looked. There was Midna and some other Twili. It looked like she was giving them orders. Link’s ears fall flat against his head again.
Midna, he thought, what have you done?
Now before any of you yell at me, Midna is not the villain of this era!
All in this fic belongs to Nintendo!
Mido told Bo the whole thing that happen to Link. Bo frowned.
“Will he be okay?” he asked worried about Link.
“I’ll be taking care of him,” he answered.
“He’ll be in good hands then,” he said.
After a few minuets of talking, Mido left the house. Bo told him that they will be on alert and that no one would be by themselves. Mido was heading back to his house when he stopped at Link’s. All the children were there including Ilia. She shrugged at him when he gave her a puzzled look.
“What are you little ones doing here?” Mido asked.
The children looked at him and then ran over and started to ask a bunch of questions about Link. Mido raised his hands up. They instantly quiet down.
“Link will be fine,” Mido said, “he’ll be back in a day or so. You have nothing to worry about with the creatures. I’m sending my two friends here to help me watch over you. Any more questions?”
They shook their heads.
“I’ll be going now,” Mido said, “Now stay with each other. We don’t want you to go missing.”
“Okay,” the children said together.
Mido smiled. He found them very adorable.
“I’ll tell Link you all said hi,” he said before he left.
Link groaned as he awoke. He blinked a few times before he noticed that the room, he was in, wasn’t he’s. He tried to set up only to have someone push him down.
“You shouldn’t set up,” said a voice, “Mido hasn’t checked your injuries yet.”
Link looked over and saw a Hyrulean that looked like one of the Link’s of old, except he had brown hair and red eyes.
“Who are you?” Link asked.
“Dark Link,” the man answered with a puffed up chest, “Dark for short. Master of water and shadows.”
There was a snort from down below. Dark put his hands on his hips and glared down. That’s when Link noticed the golden wolf.
“Hey I remember you!” Link exclaimed.
The wolf looked up at him with a proud smile.
“I remember you as well,” the wolf said.
“What was that snort for Link?” Dark asked the wolf.
The Link, still in bed, had a confused look. The wolf sighed.
“Dark call me wolf Link or Time,” he said, “or you’re going to confuse the boy. To answer your question, you still haven’t proven that you can control both.”
“I can do that now,” he stated as he walked out of the room.
(A/N: I’m going to start calling Wolf Link, Time.)
“Get some more rest,” Time said to Link, “Mido will be back soon.”
Time left the room. Link blinked.
“Who’s Mido?” he asked to no one.
Ilia watched the children as they played around. Colin was beside her.
“Um Ilia, may I ask you something?” he asked.
“Sure,” she answered.
“Who is Mido exactly?” Colin asked, “I mean people bowed to him and call him prince. So I’m confused.”
Ilia looked up at the sky and laughed.
“That’s because he rules these lands,” she answered, “he’s far older than he looks and the last of his kind. You see we live here because he lets us.”
“Can you tell m more about him?” Colin asked very interested now.
“It was my great grandpa who settled here with his friends,” she started, “he, first, scooted out this place before hand without knowing that Prince Mido was watching him. When he came back with his friends and family, Mido was standing in the way and had controlled some kind of pollen to fill the air around them, causing them to cough.”
“Who are you?” Great Grandpa asked while coughing.
“I am the Kokiri Prince of the forest,” Mido answered, “You do not have permission to enter here.”
Great Grandpa and the others bowed.
“Forgive us,” he begged, “we didn’t know. We were just looking for a place to live in peace.”
“Why?” Mido said waving the pollen away from them.
“Our old home was cursed,” answered Great Grandpa, “Our crops died and we were taxed heavily by our old leader.”
“Mido took pity on them,” said Ilia, “He let them through, but with a promise. They were to tell no one about him and the secrets of the forest.”
Colin was in aw.
“Does he visit here often?” he asked.
“At least once a year,” Ilia answered, “or when a new member is born or if there is danger.”
“Or bring a lost child here,” came the voice of Rusl.
Colin looked up at his dad in confusion.
“Mido is the reason why Link is here,” his dad said, “He brought him here when he was two. He was asleep in Mido’s arms. Mido told us that he’s home was destroyed and that he was the only survivor.”
Colin frowned. He felt sorry for Link.
Link awoke when he felt someone lifting up his arm. He looked over to see a man with long red hair, blue eyes, and wearing an outfit almost like his. Link blushed . For a being a man, he sure was pretty. The man was bandaging up a cut on his arm. The man smiled.
“Well good morning,” he said.
“Morning,” Link said a bit hesitant.
The man laid Link’s arm down and looked at him.
“I’m Prince Mido,” He introduced himself, “your wounds are bandaged. It’ll be a day or two before you can leave.”
Link nodded. He still had a blush on his face. Mido blinked and checked his forehead. This made Link blush go darker.
“Your face is red, but you have no fever,” Mido said.
Link swallowed. This was going to be a wonderful one or two days.
So you know Link wouldn’t remember Mido, for he was too young and traumatized to.
All in this fic belongs to Nintendo!
Note: It’s been a long time since I played Twilight Princess
It has been a year since Link saved both Hyrule and the Twilight realm. He had come back to Ordon Village and started working as a goat herder again. Link sighed and looked up at the clouds. Epona, his horse, nudged his head with her nose. Link smiled and pet her.
“Bored too?” he asked.
“Link!” he heard one of the kids call.
He looked over at the gate. It was Talo. He had a look that told Link that something was wrong. He went to him.
“What happen?” Link asked.
“I was at your house trying to do that shield trick you do with the shield that dad made,” Talo started, “when this big strange looking black bird came down. I manage to duck, but it got the shield and flew off into the woods. If I don’t come home with that shield, dad’s going to punish me.”
“I’ll get it back,” said Link.
“Thank you!” he exclaimed.
Link went to ask Fado if he could leave and then went to his house. He quickly got his bow and arrows. He then got on Epona and headed to the woods.
It had been another 100 years for Mido. He now look like he was in his 20’s. His hair was a bit longer and he no longer had his bangs. Mido was setting on the water edge of the spirit lake in Faron Woods with Wolf Link laying beside him. Dark Link was standing behind Mido. Dark smiled.
“I bet I can touch that water,” he said.
Wolf Link looked up at him.
“Dark that’s holy water,” wolf Link said, “It’ll hurt you.”
“I can control any water,” Dark started proudly.
“I thought you could control shadows?” Wolf Link asked.
“I can do both,” said Dark puffing up his chest.
“Yeah right,” said Wolf Link setting up.
A strange coo altered Mido. He looked to the sky to see or hear it again.
“Then prove it,” challenged Wolf Link.
“All right I-Mido?” Dark asked when he saw Mido standing up.
The strange coo sounded again. All three of them saw a Shadow Kargaro fly over head with a shield in its talents.
“What is that doing in our world?” Mido wondered.
The sound of hooves came next. They looked over at the opening. This era’s Link came galloping by on top of Epona. He was chasing the bird.
“I have a bad feeling about this,” Dark Link stated.
Wolf Link started running after the horse. Mido grabbed his bow and followed with Dark in toe.
The Shadow Kargaro lead Link out of Faron Woods before it dropped the shield It hoovered for a while before letting out a loud coo. Before Link knew it, he was surrounded by Shadow Bulblins.
Damn, Link thought, I should have thought to bring my sword.
He was pulled off by one of the Shadow Bulblins. Link shot an arrow in it’s head. Before he could get up another grabbed his leg and dragged hi. He lost the bow. Link kicked the Shadow Bulblin from him and started looking for the bow. Two more Shadow Bulblin with clubs hit him. They did this over and over ’till he faint. A growl made the two Shadow Bulblins look up. Wolf Link pounced and grabbed hold of one’s neck. Mido fired two magic arrows at two while Dark drowned the last one in a bubble full of water. Mido went to Link.
“He’s badly injured,” he said, “but alive.”
Mido looked at Dark and Wolf Link.
“Could you take him to my home for me?” Mido asked, “I want to talk to Bo.”
Dark and Wolf Link nodded. Mido got on Epona and rode her back to Ordon Village.
Talo was pacing. Ilia came over to see if Link came back yet. She smiled at Talo.
“He’ll be back soon,” she reassured the child.
Talo nodded. A faint sound of galloping hooves made them look at the forest entrance with smiles. Epona came running out, but her rider wasn’t Link. Ilia gasped and bowed when she recognized the face. Talo did the same.
Mido smiled and motion for them to stand up straight. Talo spotted his shield strapped on Epona’s saddle.
“Little Ilia is your father here?” Mido asked.
“Yes,” she answered.
Mido got off of Epona and took the shield off. He bent down in front of Talo. Mido smiled.
“I’m guessing this is yours little one?” Mido asked.
Talo nodded and took the shield
“Where’s Link?” he asked.
“He’s on his way to my home,” answered Mido, “he’s a bit broken at the moment. He’ll be back in a day or two.”
“Okay,” said Talo sadly and worriedly.
Mido followed Ilia to her father. Bo looked at him and bowed.
“Prince Mido,” he said, “what brings you here?”
“To talk to you,” answered Mido, “because it seems that we have a bit of a problem.”
Sorry if it’s an awkward ending ^_^;
All in this fic doesn’t belong to me!
Mido and Link finally made it to were the laughing came from.
“What in the!?” Mido exclaimed.
“A lake in the middle of the forest?” Link asked, “that wasn’t there before.”
“Because it wasn’t,” answered Mido, “Dark Link must have made it. Dark!”
“Mido!?” they herb someone ask.
“Yes it’s me!” Mido shouted back, “Do you mind coming down here for a moment!?”
Link watched as Dark made he’s way down a tree. Dark came running up to Mido.
“Do you like the lake I made?” Dark asked, “Woe! You’re a bit small to be a hero, aren’t you?”
Dark bend down to Link.
“Why do they always say that!?” Link asked himself while storming off.
Dark looked back at Mido with a puzzled look.
“He gets that a lot,” answered Mido, “Now about your lake-”
“Do you like it?” Dark asked cutting Mido off, “I made purified water to put in the hole.”
“About that,” said Mido, “It’s not exactly pier.”
“What do you mean?” Dark asked looking at his lake, “it looks pier to me.”
“Here,” said Mido getting his water canteen out.
Mido pored a little water in the palm of his hand. Dark blinked a few times then looked back at his lake. He noticed that his lake was a bit blacker then the water in Mido’s hand.
“It’s making the plants sick isn’t it?” he asked.
“Yes,” Mido answered.
Dark looked down at the ground.
“Sorry,” he apologized, “I was just trying to impress you.”
Mido made Dark look at him.
“And you did,” said Mido giving him a hug, “but I’m still not interested.”
“Damn,” Dark said hugging Mido back.
They pulled away.
“I done told you I can’t heal your wounds,” Mido said, “They are far too deep and have been open for far too long.”
Dark sighed. He looked over at Link, who was still foaming.
“I still can’t believe he’s a hero,” Dark said.
“There is only one way to find out,” suggested Mido.
“He doesn’t have the Master Sword,” said Dark, “that blade he has now won’t hit me.”
“It’s in the ocean dear,” informed Mido.
“Oh,” was all Dark said.
Dark reached out his hand. A long line of water quickly released and headed to the ocean.
“Hey Link!” Mido called out, “do you mind coming here for a minuet or so!?”
Link walked over to them.
“Yes?” he asked.
Dark’s line of water ended and dropped the Master Sword in front of him.
“Do you mind fighting Dark?” Mido asked.
Link looked at Dark.
“I don’t know,” he answered.
“Come on little guy,” said Dark.
Link’s eye twitched.
“Oh it’s on now,” he said in an angry tune.
Link picked up the sword and got in a ready stance. Dark smiled and did the same. Water came up to his right hand and formed s dark version of the Master Sword.
“All right,” said Mido backing away from the fighting area, “three hits to Dark and the fight ends. Begin!”
Link charged a head. Dark put up his shield. Link hit it and back flipped away.
Damn, Link thought, I guess frontal attacks won’t work.
Dark swing and Link dodged. Link vertical swing and Dark mimicked it. Link did a horizontal one and, again, Dark mimicked it. Link, getting frustrated, did a spin attack. Dark jumped on the blade. Dark swang his blade again. Link brought his shield up. Dark hit it and jumped off.
So he mimics and jumps on my sword, Link thought, How can I-wait! Maybe I could…yes that might work.
Link pulled his blade up for a vertical attack. Dark snorted and prepared his own blade for the same attack.
There! Link thought.
Link then switched attacks to a stab. He got Dark in the stomach.
That’s one, Link thought.
Dark pulled away and held his stomach. Link then noticed that it was blood, not water, that was dripping out.
So he can pick up thing in a blink of an eye, Dark thought.
Dark stood up and charged at Link. Link tried to do the same combo again, but Dark blocked it.
So the same attack won’t work twice, Link thought, time to change it up.
Link set up another vertical attack. Dark prepared to block the stab, but Link did a horizontal attack, getting him across the chest. Dark groaned in pain.
That’s two, Link thought.
Dark looked at him angrily.
“Dark!” Mido yelled at him.
“I know!” Dark yelled back.
Dark charged yet again. Link, this time, got ready for a stab. Dark tried to block, but fail to see the vertical strike to his left leg.
And that would be three, Link thought.
Suddenly a tiny flowers popped up and bloomed. Small light balls came out and headed to Dark’s wounds and healed them. Mido came up to them.
“That was a great fight,” said Dark, “one I haven’t had in years.”
Link smiled. He handed the Master Sword back to Dark. Dark did the same thing as he did before to send it back. Birds started to tweet. Mido listen to them.
“It seems your boat is ready to leave,” he said.
“Aww,” Link said, “All ready?”
Mido giggled and patted him on the head.
“You can come and visit any time,” he said.
Link smiled again. They made it back to Forest Haven. Both Mido and Dark waved goodbye to Link with the rest of the Koroks.
“They don’t make hero’s like they use to,” commented Dark.
“What you mean?” Mido asked.
“The past two have been kids,” answered Dark, “I wish the next one to be at least if not, older.”
Mido smiled a little and looked to the sky.
“That would be the day,” he said, “Huh?”
The clouds parted a little ways to show the shape of what looked like to be a cross from a male Hylia and a red bird, flying in the sky.
“What?” Dark asked.
“Oh nothing,” answered Mido with a bigger smile, “come on. Let’s go back home.”
With that they went back into Forest Haven’s woods. Both hoping in the next 100 years a new hero would be taller and older.
Sorry if it seems rushed, XD I really wanted to get to next era because I have evil plans for it >:3 Any who, yes I still suck at fighting scenes. By the way, I found an online grammar checker and trying it out on this chapter. Let me know if it’s working or not.

Evil laughter could be herd through the entire forest. A man in a black tonic with brown hair and red eyes emerged from the water. He smiled big at his handy work.
“This will surly bring Mido here,” he said to him self, “then I can impress him by healing he forest. Yes that sounds like a good plan.”
he laughed again.
Mido and Link were almost half way through the forest when they herd another laugh. Mido narrowed his eyes.
“Don’t tell me he did all this?” he asked himself.
“Who?” asked Link.
“Dark Link,” answered Mido.
“A Link that is dark?” Link asked a bot confused.
“Here let us take a break and I’ll tell you his story,” answered Mido.
Link nodded in agreement. They both sat on the ground and ate little of the food they packed.
“It started 300 years ago,” started Mido, “back then the Triforce was pieces you could carry. There was a Zelda and a Link as well. This Link was once a hero and had fallen in love with his Zelda. Though his appearance was different.”
“How so?” asked Link.
“Instead of the usual blond hair and blue eyes,” answered Mido, “he had brown hair and eyes. Here let me start when thinks went bad for him.”
it was a beautiful day in the old kingdom of Hyrule. A brunette Link was walking down the hall to the library, humming to himself.
I can’t wait to show Zelda what I’ve done, he thought.
Laughter could be herd at the library. Link gave a confused look.
Who is in there with her? He asked himself.
When he got to the library he open the door. There stood Zelda with a man dressed like a royal. They turned and looked at Link.
“Oh speak of the devil,” said Zelda, “Lanayru this is Link. Link this is my fiance, Lanayru.”
Fiance!? Thought Link.
Lanayru extended his hand.
“It’s a honor to meet you,” he said.
Link put on a fake smile and shook his hand.
“Same here,” Link said.
“Was there something you need, Link?” Zelda asked.
“No,” answered Link, “was just wondering what was so funny, that’s all.”
“Oh I was telling Lanayru about the time you got turn into a frog,” said Zelda.
Link nodded and bowed.
“I’ll take my leave then,” he said.
“Link,” Lanayru called out, “would you mind joining us for dinner tonight?”
“Sure,” answered Link before he left the room.
When the door closed he ran to the tower. There he laid on his bed in thought.
A fiance, he thought, you would think she could have warn me…wait she knows my feelings for her, could she have been toying with me? No, she could have forgotten. She’s forgetful like that. You’ll see. Everything will be the same.
everyone was seated at the table talking and eating with each other. All except Link. He would glance at Lanayru and Zelda in the hopes that one of them would notice him and have him join their conversation. Nothing. He was a little more then half way done with his meal when he got up. Everyone looked at him. Link bowed.
“May I be excused?” Link asked, “I’m not feeling well.”
“Of coarse,” answered the king.
Link left back to the tower. He stood on the open window seal.
How could I think that everything was going to be fine? He asked himself, she didn’t even noticed me.
He looked to the ground below.
Just one jump and it’ll be all over, he thought.
He then looked to the mountains on his right. He’s eyes widen when he thought of something. He looked to the blue Triforce of Wisdom and the green Triforce of Courage.
It might just work, he thought.
when everyone went to sleep, Link wrapped the Triforce piece in a blanket and successfully sneak out of the castle. He then got on a horse and went were he knew the entrance to Ganon’s lair was. The guards, upon seeing him, were at the ready. Link uncover half of the Triforce. When the guards saw it they gave each other a confused look.
“I come seeking to join Ganon,” Link told them, “and to give this Triforce piece to him.”
The guards looked at each other one more time before one of them lead the way, in the main chamber, Ganon stood in front of the red Triforce of Power, talking to it.
“Master Ganon,” said the guard, “You have a visitor.
“What is he doing here?” he angrily asked.
“I seek to join you,” answered Link, “and to prove that I brought you the Triforce of Courage.”
Link unwrapped the Triforce fully. He kneel at Ganon’s feet and reached out to give him the Triforce. Ganon study him.
“How do I know that once I grab the Triforce, a bunch of soldiers and Zelda won’t pop out of no where?” he asked.
“I came alone,” answered Link, “If you don’t believe me I can tell you the whole story.”
Ganon looked at him one more time before taking the Triforce. He summon another pedestal and placed it on top of it, beside the one of Power.
“You know giving me the Triforce deserves a reward,” said Ganon facing Link.
“I don’t need anything in return,” Link said.
“Oh but you do,” said Ganon, “for you see, you’re a bit too much in tune with the good side to my dislike. So I think you need a darker form.”
with a wave of his hands a dark fog surrounded Link. Link screamed out in pain and all to his hands and knees. When the fog lifted Link’s appearance changed (to match what he look like in OoT). He open his slitted, glowing red eyes and looked up at Ganon. Ganon laughed.
“Perfect,” he said, “on top of the look your belong is one with water. This means you can meld into water and are immune to pretty much everything.”
Link smiled evilly.
“Your first mission will be to get me the Triforce of Wisdom,” ordered Ganon.
“Of coarse my master,” said Link with a bow.
Ganon smiled at this.
It has been a year and a half now that Link stay in the waters of the castle studying everyone’s patterns. Ganon kept on asking why he hadn’t gotten the Triforce. Which Link told him being patient is more awarding then rash actions. He had wittiness, to his anger, the wedding of Lanayru and Zelda and the birth of their son. But what did surprise him though was the fact they sent out a search party for him. The feeling of happiness didn’t last long. Today he sent word to Ganon to bring a large army and to announce the attack. Link looked to the gates when a horn sounded. Link watched for a little bit as the army of Ganon came running through.
It was a peaceful morning when the royal couple awoke. Zelda picked up their son and started to feed him. Lanayru kissed her forehead and smiled. All of a sudden a horn blaired. Lanayru looked out the window and sighed.
“What is it?” Zelda asked going to the window.
“It’s Ganon again,” Lanayru answered.
Zelda looked out.
“That army looks a lot bigger then usual,” Zelda said in a concern voice.
“Maybe he finally got serious,” Lanayru said, “Stay here. I’m going to go help the guards down below.”
with a kiss Lanayru went off to put his armor on. Zelda looked back out the window.
I have a bad feeling about this, she thought.
Link made it to the tower in 30 minuets. With the remaining guards distracted by the crying baby, Link open the door ti see no one in there, but the Triforce of Wisdom. Link smiled evilly.
“Perfect,” he said.
He grabbed the Triforce and was headed to the door. He stopped when he herd plated feet coming toward him.
“Damn,” he said.
He looked out the window and saw the mote. With a wave of his hand a cyclone rose. He jumped into it as it gently put him down. He then ran through the forest toward the mountains.
Lanayru decapitated a Moblin that was getting ready to cut one of the soldiers in half. They nodded at each other before returning to battle.
“The Triforce of Wisdom!” someone shouted from the tower, “It’s gone!”
“They’re retreating!” a captain shouted.
Lanayru looked to the retreating backs of Ganon’s army.
“Damn,” said Lanayru angrily, “They were just a simple distraction.”
he then noticed something at the corner of his left eye. He looked and saw a black figure with something blue glowing in their hands. Lanayru gave chase. The figure, feeling like someone was following them, stopped. Lanayru got into a fighting stance. The figure turned around. Lanayru gasped.
“Link?” he named the figure.
He then noticed the dried up blood on Link’s hands. He growled.
“So you betray us,” Lanayru said.
“No,” Link said, “I was the one betrayed.”
Lanayru the stabbed Link where his heart is. Instead of blood flowing out it was water. Lanayru gave a stun look, which made Link laugh. Lanayru pulled out his sword and swing. Link jumped on top of it. Link smirked and lend over to him.
“By the way,” Link said, “how good was Zelda?”
Lanayru roared. Link jumped off.
“I hope you treasured your time with her,” he said.
Lanayru bear his teeth. Link then motion to the river beside them. Little water flew to Link. When he touched the water it took shape. Lanayru gasped. The water had turn into a blacken version of the blade given to the blessed one, the Master Sword. Link pointed it at Lanayru.
“You’ll find that it’s hard to best me,” Link said with a cocky smile.
Lanayru swing again. Link blocked it. Lanayru eyes widen at the chine sound.
So it’s real too, he thought.
They traded blow after blow, each time Link mimicked the same move. Lanayru did a vertical swing Link stepped out of the way. Link then stabbed him in the stomach. Lanayru dropped to his knees and held the wound. Link’s sword turn back into water and fell to the ground.
“Something to remember to your grave Lanayru,” Link said, “I will never. I will always be here watching.”
With that he walked off.
“When Dark Link got to Ganon, he tricked him,” said Mido, “He killed Ganon. When he turn to take the Triforce pieces for himself, they were gone in a flash of light. The goddesses had taken them to place where they would be safe ’till those who are destine to have them…”
Mido grabbed Link’s left hand and lifted it. The Triforce on his hand glowed.
“Will be one with them,” finished Mido putting Link’s hand down.
“Wait,” said Link, “how do you know all this?”
“It’s best not know somethings little one,” he said petting Link on the head, “Come we have a shadow to find.”
With that they got up and walked farther into the forest to find the hero that had fallen into darkness.
See I made this longer for you all 😛 anyways Lanayru is named after Lanayru the spirit. Which means the land is not named after the guy, but after the spirit. Something to remember in the future (Dark Link doesn’t know that). Oh yeah Dark Link fan girls there you go for a back story for him.

Link managed to climb to the ledge where he saw the wolf without alerting anyone. He pulled himself up. He huffed and puffed while looking back down. He backed up a little and looked ahead at the trail. He gasped. There sit the gold wolf staring at him. The wolf stood and ran down the trail.
“Wait,” Link said.
He ran after the wolf.
Mido looked at his reflection. He thought about the stories he heard about the stories he heard about a Hero of Man and some man that locked up a dragon’s power in a mask and called it Majora. He had seen the pictures of both which they too look like Link. Which, in Mido’s head, was impossible considering both lived long before his Link was even thought of. Even before his own people took the shape of Hyrulian children. These men were probably the one that was from the sky. This immortal Link. Mido learned about him. He was granted a form by the goddesses to sorrow above the havens and protect the land forever. The very first Link that never was recorded in writing like the others, but in pictures. Most forgot what they even mean. Mido pulled at his bangs.
Why did I give myself this? He asked himself.
He heard a bark. Mido looked up at the trail. Wolf Link was running down it. Wolf Link glanced back. Mido stood and looked over to see the small running form of the new Link. Wolf Link jumped into the bush and disappeared. Link stopped huffing and puffing. He looked up and saw Mido.
“Um, hi,” he said.
“Hello,” Mido said.
“Um I know this may sound crazy,” Link said, “but did a gold wolf run pass here?”
“Maybe, maybe not,” answered Mido.
Link gave him a confused look.
“This forest is known to play tricks on the mind,” clarified Mido, “You may see things that are true and may see things that are not. That’s why Korok never come this far up.”
‘Then why are you here?” Link asked.
Mido stared off in the distance.
“To forget somethings and to remember others,” he answered.
“Um alright,” Link said, “oh my name is Link.”
He held out his hand. Mido smiled.
“Mido,” he said.
He shook his hand.
“No offense Link, but you seem to be a bit young to be a hero,” Mido commented.
“I know,” he said, “To tell you the truth I didn’t want to be a hero. All I wanted to do is save my little sister.”
“Hm,” said Mido, “That’s what the others said too.”
“Others?” Link asked.
“Oh an old man thinking out loud,” said Mido.
“Old, but you look to be 18,” commented Link.
Mido laughed out loud. He patted Link on the head.
“One thing you have to remember is that Kokiri live for a very long time,” he said.
“Link!” came a shout, “Where are you?”
“Your friends are looking for you,” said Mido.
Link started to head back, but he stopped and look back at Mido.
“Don’t worry,” Mido said, “We’ll see each other again.”
Link smiled at this and ran back. Mido waved. Wolf Link came out of the bushes.
“You lead him here on purpose didn’t you?” Mido asked.
Wolf Link nodded.
“You need someone other then me to talk to,” he stated.
“Teh,” responded Mido.
Link made it back safely. It was Makar that called him. He wanted to show him something that the Korok does as a tradition. Now he was headed to the Deku Tree with a lot of questions in his head like what a Kokiri is and who Mido really is. He walked up to the Deku Tree.
“I can see in your eyes that you have questions,” he said, “Ask away.”
“What is a Kokiri?” Link asked.
“A Kokiri is what these Korok use to be,” answered the Deku Tree.
Wow, thought Link, I wonder if he knows how far back that is. From there I can tell how old Mido is.
“How long ago was that?” Link asked.
“About 200 years ago,” answered the Deku Tree, “I was just a sprout back then.”
Link’s eyes widen.
Mido’s over 200 years old?! Link thought, But he looks so young.
“Then maybe you know of a Mido?” Link asked.
“Yes of course,” answered the Deku Tree, “he and another was specially created by my father before me to lead the Kokiri. They were best known outside the forest as the forest prince and princess for they share the powers of a Deku Tree.”
“Oh wow,” was all Link could say.
“You have met with Mido,” the Deku Tree stated more than asked.
Link’s cheeks want red with embarrassment of being caught.
“You listen well to what he says,” the Deku Tree said, “He’s old and wise as me. He does come down here be it that I summon him or to play with the Korok.”
“Or when I feel something is wrong,” said a voice from behind.
Link turned and saw Mido. He approached him.
“And something is very wrong,” he said.
Just then the ground violently shook. Everyone tumbled over.
“Link!” someone shouted from outside Forest Haven.
Link got up and ran outside. He looked around.
“Link you need to come over here,” It was Tetra.
He ran to her.
“What’s wrong?” he asked.
She pointed up ward. Link looked and saw strange vines wrapping around Forbidden Woods.
What is going on around here? Link asked himself.
“Corruption,” someone answered.
Link looked at Mido. He didn’t even notice Mido following him.
“Corruption?” he asked.
“Yes something in there must have done this,” Mido answered.
Or someone, he thought.
one page longer but still longer then the last one 😀
Now I wonder what has happen at the Forbidden Forest.

Link was on Tetra’s ship. They were headed to Outset Island, his home, at last. Link smiled at the thought of seeing his grandma and sister again. How he couldn’t wait to taste his grandma’s cooking again. Just then the ship rocked hard to one side. Link’s head shot up to the sky. It was a very angry looking gray.
When did that come up? He thought.
Just then a streak of lightning went across the sky. Thunder soon followed. It was so loud that it made Link jump. Tetra came running up from her quarters. She looked at the sky and gave a concerned look. She then went to work on giving orders to everyone. Moments later they had to emergency land on Forest Haven. Link sighed. Tetra looked at him.
“I’m sorry,” she said, “It’ll be a bit longer to get you to your island.”
“It’s alright,” Link re-ensured.
He looked up at the falls. He smiled a little. He turned to Tetra.
“Is it okay if I go and visit my friends?” he asked.
Tetra looked up to the falls and smiled.
“of course,” coarse,” she answered, “I’ll go get you when we are ready to sail.”
“Alright!” shouted Link before he ran off.
Tetra shook her head.
“Kids these days,” she commented.
She began to walk back to the ship. She suddenly stopped with the uncomfortable feeling that she was being watched. She quickly looked behind her to see a retreating form of a glowing wolf.
“A gold wolf?” she asked herself, “Now you don’t see that everyday.”
Link went through the falls only to be tackled down by the bodies of the tiny Korok. Link smiled and laughed. When he managed to get back up he went to the Deku Tree and bowed.
“Link, child, it’s great to see you again,” his voice boomed.
“The same to you,” said Link.
“Link Link!” jumped Makar, “Do you want to hear a new song I came up with?”
“Sure,” answered Link with a smile.
“Yay!” shouted Makar, “ come come!”
Makar pulled on Link’s arm. Link smiled. Then something shining at the corner of his eye cought his attention. He looked over and saw a golden wolf. His mouth dropped open. The golden wolf then turned and walked into the forest area.
“What exactly did I just see?” he asked himself.
“A spirit,” answered the Deku Tree.
“A spirit?” asked a very confused Link.
“Yes,” answered the Deku Tree, “of a hero who had fallen in battle 200 years ago. He stays on this plane because he is needed by another.”
“Who is this another?” Link asked.
The Deku Tree laughed.
“If he chooses to let you see him,” answered the Deku Tree, “then you’ll meet him. For now go have fun with Makar.”
Link sighed and went on his way.
Besided a tree, eyes as blue as the ocean and hair as orange as fire, watched Link. The golden wolf came beside the eye’s owner.
“It’s another Link isn’t it?” asked the eye’s owner.
The wolf nodded.
“Though he seems to be a bit childish,” the wolf commented.
“You were too once, Link,” commented the eye’s owner.
Wolf Link snorted.
“I’m guessing he has a Zelda as well?” asked the eye’s owner.
“Of coarse,” answered wolf Link, “in an alternate form too. Why you ask? Do you have an eye on this one as well, Mido?”
“No no,” he answered, “He’s far too young.”
Mido and wolf Link watched Link a bit longer before they retreated more into the forest.
I know this is a bit short, but I promise it’ll be long next time.

And like Zelda Wiki says “Theory Warning: Be advised that the following chapters of the rest of this fic contains unconfirmed, fan-made theories or speculation about Hero’s Shade.” If you don’t have an open mind then please stop reading this fic right now.
Every one else please enjoy! 😀
When the pain subsided, Mido’s form was the same as when the Hero of Time was still alive. He growled at the other two.
“I though you said he would look like one of you, Zant?” the 1st voice asked.
“I thought we got it right this time,” answered Zant.
“Well you didn’t,” commented the 1st, “Maybe your little king needs to relearn his spells.”
“Watch it Veran,” warned Zant.
Just then Mido lunged at Veran, but she dodged it.
“And will someone please chain this thing up?!” She shouted.
Link has been following the same black beast for days.
“Gees when is this thing going to take me somewhere other then more forest?” Link wondered.
They then came to the abandon temple.
This better be where they took Mido, he thought.
Link entered the temple and started his search.
They had Mido’s neck chained to the wall. The chain was so strong that no matter how hard he pulled it won’t brake. Mido decided to see if he can chew it through. Sounds of foot steps coming toward him cause him to stop. Mido started to growl. The owner of the foot steps rounded the corner. It was Dark Link. He looked behind him.
“See I told you I would find him,” he said.
“And you expected me to believe you after what you put me through 100 years ago?” the other one asked.
The other scoffed and starting walking around the corner. He was a golden wolf with red eyes; one of them was shut and had a scar on the lid. The gold wolf went to Mido. Mido growled at him. The wolf stared at him. Mido stopped growling and stared back.
“You know I would have won him over if didn’t you show up,” said Dark.
“By what?” The wolf asked with a smirk, “Your so-called charm?”
Dark pouted. The wolf put all of his attention back on Mido. They stared for a bit longer when suddenly Mido started to revert back to his old form. Mido blinked a few times.
“I know those eyes even if they’re a different color,” he said, “You’re the Link I once knew.”
It wasn’t a question, but Wolf Link nodded anyway. Mido hugged his neck.
“I missed you,” Mido said with a tear in his eye.
Dark cleared his throat. They looked at him.
“I hate to break up this touchy reunion,” he said, “but we need to hurry before that shadow brod notices that little princy here is off his chain.
”With that they headed out of the room.
Link was down on one knee and bereaving heavily. Veran laughed.
Damn it, he thought, All I wanted was to get Mido back.
Just then a shadow bolt came at him. Thankfully, he had enough strength to block it. Veran laughed. She held he hands up high.
“Now dear hero!” she shouted, “You will die!”
Just then a green flash pierced through her. She gapped and turned enough for Link to see Mido there behind her with his bow already out.
“An old friend of mine,”answered Mido.
Veran screamed and exploded into sparkles of shadows. Mido went over to Link and helped him up.
“How did you escape?” Link asked.
“Like I said an old friend of mine,” Mido answered.
They started walking to the exit.
After a few days of riding they made it back to the castle. There Din, Nayru, Farore, Impa, and Zelda were waiting for them out of the gate. They bowed.
“Thanks to the two of you Hyrule is safe once again,” stated Impa.
“Oh it was nothing we couldn’t handle,”said Link.
Zelda came to him and kissed him on the lips. Mido frowned and looked away. That’s when he saw Wolf Link. He was beckoning him to follow. Mido looked back at the group to make sure they weren’t looking. Once sure he followed Wolf Link. The group laughed and carried on. Link looked over to where Mido was only to find him gone. He gasped and looked around. Then he felt a hand on his shoulder. He looked over his shoulder to see it was Zelda.
“What’s wrong?” she asked with concern.
This cause the others, except for Farore, to look around.
“He’s gone back,” she answered.
“to the forest to be with his people again,” Farore answered.
Link looked up at the sky with a frown.
“I sure am going to miss him,” he stated.
With that they went into the castle to celebrate and to say their thanks to the great Forest Prince that helped The Hero save Hyrule from the evil of Veran.
Sorry if Veran was out of place. I never played The Oracle of Seasons/Ages before.
So you all know this isn’t the end of the fic. No no no we still have two eras to go through 😛
