This is an (incomplete) fanstory written by {{Tropers/Jaryl}}, set in the {{Fantasy}}-genre. It's basically a sequel to Literature/DangerousDetour, and features the same protagonist, [[NamesTheSame Jaryl]] Garen, [[HeIsAllGrownUp just 14 years older]].

Literature/TheDreamingIsland is one of two winning stories of a Zelda-fanstory-competition which was held on a german Creator/{{Nintendo}}-board, where the first prize would be a game of the winning story, done with the engine of VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime. The author chose LinksAwakening and its premise and characters as basic for this story, [[WordOfGod and since he's one of the cheapest]] {{ShamelessSelfPromoter}}s [[SelfDeprecation ever on this world]], he chose to include the MainCharacters of [[Literature/DangerousDetour his own story]] as Protagonists, and because of wanting to show the Island Koholint from the eyes of series-outsiders.

Mind you that this only serves as a preview to the game, where work has yet to be started.

You can find the first two chapters on his blog, but like Literature/DangerousDetour, it's in german only: http://dangerousdetour.blogspot.com/

Has a [[Characters/TheDreamingIsland character-page]].

!!Tropes associated with The Dreaming Island (under construction)

* AncientConspiracy: Apparently still running.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Compared to ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'', which was pretty lighthearted and where Koholint was largely at peace, here the whole island's been ravaged by monsters and 'Nightmares'.
* ShoutOut: To "Literature/TheWolfAndTheSevenYoungKids", of all possible stories and fairytales:
--> "Who are you, and what do you want here?!", the aligatorman yells at me and tries to hold me on the ground, whereupon I answer with a kick with both of my feet, managing to knock him away from me. I raise myself immediately after and pull out my sword.
-->"I'm the big, bad wolf and I want to eat the seven young kids! Miserable puns aside, well, what to you think I'm doing here? Finding out, where the hell I am and how to get home, that's what I have in mind to do", I'm growling angry.
** To [[SpongeBobSquarePants Squidward]] too, as Jaryl utters at one point:
--> "Does this look unsure to you?"
* LogicalFallacies: Jaryl points these out in questioning why anybody would randomly put up gigantic stone-pillars surrounding a treasure-chest, making it inaccessible, at a beach.
