When Hollywood Scientists Boldly Flee

In a dark, damp prison cell, two women were waiting. The thinner, more babe-alicious one was searching every inch of the cell, tapping on the walls and looking in the corners. "Well, I think that went very well!" she said cheerfully, as she examined a piece of rock she found. Her companion, a more frumpy-looking person, was sitting on the floor, her head in her hands.

"I hate you so much," she growled.

Zelda Of The Sun, Zelda Of The Moon

Title: Zelda of the Sun, Zelda of the Moon
Author: ZeldaQueen (zelda_queen</lj>)
Fandom: The Legend of Zelda
Rating: G
Warnings: Several injuries, though nothing very graphic
Prompt: Risk-taking, trust, and serendipity are key ingredients of joy. Without risk, nothing new ever happens. Without trust, fear creeps in. Without serendipity, there are no surprises. -- Rita Golden Gelman (born July 2, 1937), American editor and writer of children's books.
Summary: There once was a prosperous kingdom, as there often are in these sorts of tales, and it was known by the name of Hyrule. Blessed were the king and queen with two beautiful daughters who, while they loved one another dearly, were as different as the sun and the moon. All was well, until a stranger visited the castle.
Author's Notes: This fic was originally written for the 2011 Femgenfication, and can be read here. And while you're over there, I highly recommend checking out the other awesome fanfictions submitted.

While this story was written for my love of The Legend of Zelda, it was also written for my love of fairy tales, particularly lesser-known fairy tales that feature strong, cunning women as protagonists. Specific tales I drew inspiration from are Tatterhood, Kate Cracknuts, The Prince and the Three Fates, and the title of course is from East of the Sun, West of the Moon.

On one final note, many many thanks to parrinoyd

LegendMyth Story

The land is one known as Seleron. It is one of four lands that are within traveling distance. The other three are the island of Theala, the mountainous region of Einto, the harsh desert of Llanque, and the neighboring land of Chamdor. The time is the Age of Horoah, the twenty-ninth Age of the land, named for the king who rules Seleron. The land was once prosperous and safe, but now bandits and monsters roam freely, following the breaking of the King's army. The four lands are divided, helping each other only reluctantly and when profitable. In this time of hardship, fighting with weapons and spells became a powerful asset and mercenaries and groups of fighters began traveling the land, protecting the people for a price...
