Welcome to the fanfiction, The Time Lost. It's based on Ocarina of Time, during the "adult" part of the timeline. Much of this story will cover events that happened without Link and while he was asleep in the Sacred Realm for seven years. The prologue starts before the point where the timeline splits, aka before Ganondorf enters the Sacred Realm and takes the Triforce. The first chapter will start with the day Ganondorf took the Triforce and takes over Hyrule. The focus will be on two original characters, but there will be canon characters such as Malon, Sheik, Impa, etc. involved throughout the story.
This story is co-authored with Ruki. Either she or I will post chapters. The story is focused on our original characters: Eli and Ventus. We will likely alternate chapters between their PoVs, as they both experience a world taken over by the Dark King, Ganondorf. Ventus and other characters of his family belong to Ruki. Eli and other characters of his family belong to me. The setting, the world of Hyrule, is interpreted by me. I'll have a link to a page that describes this interpretation in greater detail at another time.
This story is also technically a prequel to my fanfiction, The Legend of Zelda: Empire of Darkness (I'm going to change that title to Empire of Lolth when I get back to rewriting it, but most people know it as Empire of Darkness). However, that story takes place in the child part of the timeline, after the events of OoT and MM. So while some might notice characters they know from Empire of Darkness in this story, this is actually an alternant background to those characters. Their lives and their histories were different in Empire of Darkness, because Ganondorf didn't take over Hyrule in that timeline. A lot of things happened differently.
I'll probably write other prequel stories taking place in both timelines for my original and canon characters of Empire of Darkness. This is just the first one that is the most accurate and developed.
I hope you enjoy it. COMMENTS AND FEEDBACK ARE WELCOME.
