''The Legend of Zelda: Rings of Dualty''[[note]]Dualty" is a word the author thought existed and, if it didn't, should exist; means roughly "the state of being two things at once/of two things acting as one". Likely a misspelling of "duality", which may or may not mean what the author intends. Regardless, he's keeping the spelling as-is for the moment due to laziness and plot purposes.[[/note]] is an in-progress Action-Adventure (with a dose of comedy) [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Zelda]] FanFic for written by @/{{FerreTrip}} ("FT" for short) started in late November 2007. It is written like a {{Novelization}} of a game that exists entirely within the author's (and reader's) mind...complete with new items and fully-narrated dungeons.[[note]]Originally, these were not going to be fully narrated, but positive response from what few readers commented caused FT to cave and do so. [[DidntThinkThisThrough This resulted in six chapters of a dungeon set in a relatively plausible working foundry.]][[/note]] The main gimmick behind the "game" is that it is an almost entirely co-op 3D game, with two similar yet distinct main characters: The hylian [[TheChosenOne Link]], of course, and the intelligent [[LizardFolk lizalfos]] [[OriginalCharacter Samba]].

* FurryFandom: [[WordOfGod The author is a furry]], which is pretty obvious if you look at his [[http://b.fanfiction.net/imageu/786539/125/ avatar.]] The influence is fairly apparent in the fic, though it doesn't hamper things. (It helps that there are already a number of non-human races in the [[TheVerse Zeldaverse]].) The most egregious example is probably [[spoiler:Krungratrg when they meet him again at Here; he's a giant, muscular, overweight armadillo who loves how big he is]]...however, [[spoiler:his]] [[LargeHam pers]][[CloudCuckoolander ona]][[CrazyAwesome lity]] makes up for this.

* FootFocus: Samba, frequently, with his unusually large feet. While probably partially AuthorAppeal, it's always to either point out the consequences of having such feet (better balance and kicking power, but no ability to sidle along narrow ledges due to size) or [[PlayedForLaughs to be silly]]. Even used for characterization; naturally, Samba was and is teased for them.

[[WallOfText Extremely wordy]] (something the author fights with for everything), chock-full of LampshadeHanging and [[JustifiedTrope justification]] of different mechanics and aspects of the series, and not lacking of gratuitous effort and attention to detail in certain places, the fic is supposed to make the reader feel like s/he is actually playing a Zelda game, with the two main characters often thinking like players. (The author wants to make a sort of [[InteractiveFiction interactive version]] on his own [[TheWikiRule wiki]][[hottip:*:meant as a guide to his overly-complex stories and other creative works, ''not'' to fluff his ego]] someday to make it more like a real game, letting players figure out what to do themselves.) It, like most other fanfics, falls victim to pretty {{Egregious}} ScheduleSlip because of various factors, the biggest being college. (Second-biggest is various other projects, third- being [[DidntThinkThisThrough indecision]].)

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Subverted. Most lizalfos, the kind encountered in the games, are nomadic and play the trope fairly straight. However, the ones living in the village of Jgk'hry still have a bit of bloodlust, but they're not total jerks.
** Ko, Ybir, and Vardi completely avert it.
** Kargaro, the chief of Jgk'hry, plays it [[CompleteMonster pretty straight]][[spoiler:...at least until he's cured of whatever [[BrainwashedAndCrazy evil influence]] was plaguing him; after that, he turns back into a benevolent, responsible, wise leader who helps Link and Samba on their quest]].
