* ''Sypnosis'': Set many centuries after Zelda canon, Hyrule is now a modern superpower that shares the continent with two other nations of equal strength which are in a stalemate, Gerudo and Valent. When Valent begins an unexplained but ruthless invasion of both Hyrule and Valent, Crown Princess Zelda has to do what she can to save her nation...and finds hope in the strangest of places, that being Hylian Joint Intelligence Agent Link.

[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6325702/1/ What Makes a Hero]] by Selphie Kinneas 175
* Recommended by: Tropers/SapphireBlue, Draconic, InnerGlow
* Status: Complete
* Summary: TP. Perpetual twilight, clandestine malevolence; realms linked by an encroaching darkness. The fate of two worlds hangs in the balance and only a hero can save them. A retelling of Twilight Princess.
* Synopsis: As the summary suggests, this is an expanded novelization of Twilight Princess. The first few chapters are prologue, but the rest more or less follows the game's story. A lot of content is added, but as is the mark of a good novelization, most of it feels like it could've been part of the game. The writing is quite good, and it's clear that the author is putting a lot of thought into it.
*InnerGlow: There are no words that can describe how awesome this fanfic is. It should be published. She did a fantastic job making it like the game but realistic at the same time. She is currently making the sequel, When Heroes Fall.

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9004428/1/Firefly Firefly]]'' by Blizzaga Saga
* Recommended by Glaceon Mage
* Pairing: Link/Romani, with some Kafei/Anju and one-sided Cremia/Kafei
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: After the events of Majora's Mask, Anju and Kafei learn that Link is homeless and take him in, but all he wants is to continue his search for Navi. Meanwhile, all Romani wants is to help her new friend and hero, whether he asks for it or not.
*Comments: (Glaceon Mage) An incredibly adorable story, you will want to give Link a hug while reading this. Grammar is incredible, and the characters and interactions are believable, and sweetly so. I read it multiple times, it's just too cute.

* Sypnosis: "Demise has finally managed to reform after the events of Skyward Sword, and he is furious. He comes up the perfect plan to get rid of the Hero once and for all- the only problem is the side effects." A humorous story in which Demise tries to reclaim the power of his various hatred incarnations, which on top of erasing them from existence, creating reality eating holes, traps them all in his mind. While he deals with them (and their various methods of trying to get him to let them go, most of which involve annoying him as much as possible, ranging from Go Fish to bagpipes and kilts) the various Links wind up encountering each other, and in traditional Hero fashion, bumble around in the dark trying to fix the problem of reality eating voids. The Links are as follows:
** Green, Red, Blue, and Vio: Four Swords Adventures, but primarily draw from the manga adaptation of their game. Named for the color of their clothes, as in the manga.
** Steam: Spirit Tracks. Named for the fact trains make steam when they move and his insistence that he not be named Train.
** Realm: The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link. Named for a country synonym to reflect his title being "Hero of Hyrule".
** Dusk: Twilight Princess. Named for a Twilight synonym to reflect being the Hero of Twilight.
** Wind: The Wind Waker, Phantom Hourglass. Named for being the Hero of Wind.
** Sketch: A Link Between Worlds. Named due to his ability to turn into a painting.
** Lore: A Link to the Past, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, Link's Awakening, named for being the Hero of Legend.
** Ocarina: The adult Link of Ocarina of Time. Named for the fact the Ocarina of Time was central to getting him into the mess with Ganondorf.
** Mask: The older-but-younger version of Ocarina, drawing inspiration from Majora's Mask. Named for using a lot of masks.
** The Four: Four Swords. They act in unison, thus have no individual nicknames, and are named because they couldn't think of anything better.
** Speck: The Minish Cap. Named for his ability to shrink in size.
** Genesis, normally shortened to "Gen": Skyward Sword. Named for being the "first" Link.

* Recommended by omegadannyboy
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: "Over the centuries, Link and Zelda have reincarnated many times, and in each life they're forced to face a great catastrophe. They've always saved the world, but never fulfilled their true destiny. Now, they face a darkness so great, it threatens not only to destroy the world, but also their ability to be reborn. If they don't succeed this time, they never will." (Orig storyline)
* Pairing: Link/Zelda
* Comments: How this story wasn't already on here, I will never know. It has elements of the games, but also reads like an original fantasy novel, with over 400k words. A little heavy on the romantic scenes, but the romance is actually important to the story. Do yourself a favor and read it today.

** HarDHarKoopa - I second this up and down the street. The premise is very solid, and while I'm not super happy with some of the directions the story went the prose it self was always solid. I was left at the end wanting more, and was so happy that this page here mentioned a book 2. So I went to read it...5 chapters. Not updated since 2013. I really like this story, but please do not read it if you're expecting a fully done trilogy. You're getting one finished book and the first few chapters of a second.
