Yeah....another shipping fic by me. This one, though, has crossover shippings in it....no, really! Actual, honest-to-goodness crossover ships! If you don't like it, tough.
Right...so, the ships are in the poll. All five of 'em. You can vote on which ones are your favorites. This fic would probably be rated around PG-13, I'd say.
So.....here's the prologue.
In the beginning, the three goddesses Din, Farore and Nayru created the land: Din’s flaming arms created the red earth, Farore created the lush lands, and Nayru created the people and the law that they would abide by. Their power diminished, they flew into the sky and, in a flash of light, transformed and united to form the Triforce, a set of three triangles. Din became the Triforce of Power, Nayru became the Triforce of Wisdom, and Farore became the Triforce of Courage. All three entered the Sacred Realm, where only the pure of heart would enter.
Unfortunately, the sole man born to the race of thieves known as the Gerudos named Gannondorf plundered the Triforce of Power after using a Hylian boy named Link, who had no idea he had been used, from the Sacred Realm. Being an evil Gerudo man, Gannondorf used the Triforce of Power to conquer all of Hyrule, killing all who stood in his way. Zelda, Hyrule’s princess, fled along with her caretaker Impa away from Hyrule, leaving the land free for Gannondorf’s dark magic to conquer. The Triforces of Courage and Wisdom disappeared, having chosen the two people who valued their virtues the most.
Link, however, had been imprisoned in the Sacred Realm for seven years. There, he was awakened afterwards by the Sage of Time, an old man named Rauru, and informed Link of his destiny to awaken the other six Ancient Sages of Forest, Fire, Water, Shadow, Spirit and Light. Link also found that he was the one to whom the Triforce of Courage had fled. Informed of his new destiny, he set out to rid Hyrule of Gannondorf.
Killing Gannondorf’s minions, Link awakened the Sages to find, shocked, that he knew all of them; his Kokiri friend, Saria, who had been close to Link all his life, was the Sage of the Forest. Darunia, the leader of the rock-like people known as the Gorons, was the Sage of Fire. Ruto, the princess of the aquatic Zoras, who believed she was engaged to Link, was the Sage of Water. Impa, Zelda’s Sheikah caretaker, was the Sage of Shadow. Nabooru, the feminine second-in-command of the Gerudo tribe, was the Sage of Spirit. But Link was shocked the most to find that Princess Zelda herself was the final Ancient Sage: the Sage of Light.
But Gannondorf had tricked Link, letting him destroy his minions to bring Zelda out of her guise as a Sheikah named Sheik. He trapped her in his castle, where Link set out to save her. The Sages assisted Link, making a bridge to Gannondorf’s castle, and sealed the evil Gerudo man in the Realm of Evil. Zelda returned Link to his own time, but all the Ancient Sages remained as Sages.
Now, several months later, Rauru has called a meeting of the Ancient Sages. The blue platform, which had seven sides to it, had seven small platforms on it, one for each Sage.
Rauru stood atop one small platform, his orange robes and white mustache contrasting with the rest of the navy area that was the Sacred Realm. Saria’s green hair and clothing also contrasted, but her deep, blue eyes matched well. Daruna’s brown skin and sand-colored spikes surrounding his head contrasted very much. Ruto’s white-and-blue body just barely matched the scenery. Impa’s dark blue Sheikah outfit, grey hair and red lips stood out almost as much as Nabooru’s large, baggy, pink pants, dark brown skin, gold eyes, bright orange hair and white lips. Finally, there was Zelda, long, blonde hair, pink dress and blue eyes.
“Sages…” Rauru began “the goddesses, Din, Farore and Nayru, have decreed….that there are other worlds we must provide temporary protection for. More specifically, there are four.”
“Four?” Ruto asked “Why just four?”
“Because, Princess Ruto,” Rauru said “there are only seven of us. To maintain the balance of power throughout Hyrule, Darunia, Princess Zelda and I are to remain. Besides, there will be other Sages to take your place in this world.”
Nabooru rolled her golden eyes.
“There’s your answer, Ruto.” she said
Ruto merely scoffed.
“Saria…Princess Ruto…Impa…Nabooru…” Rauru continued “you four are to provide protection for these four worlds. By now, I am sure the goddesses have implanted an image of the world you are to enter in your mind. Simply use your power as a Sage to teleport there, and make yourself at home, because it is quite likely you may remain there for the rest of your lives.”
“That’s it?” Nabooru, still somewhat new to being a Sage, asked “Huh.”
“Yes, Nabooru, that is it.” said Rauru “You are to leave as soon as you are able. In other words, right now.”
“Now?” Nabooru asked
“Yes, Nabooru, now.” Darunia said, speaking for the first time “Why are you such a complainer?”
Nabooru shrugged, ending the “conversation”.
Once a Gerudo, always a Gerudo… Zelda thought
“Please just leave.” Rauru said, touching the tips of his old fingers to his bald forehead “But before you depart, Saria, there is one thing you must know.”
“What?” Saria asked
“When you leave this world,” Rauru said “what prohibits you from growing up is no longer existent. In the world you are to enter, you will be able to grow up. That is all I wanted to say. Now, Sages, depart.”
All at once, a light blue pillar of light surrounded Saria, Ruto, Impa and Nabooru. In a flash, all of them but Rauru, Darunia and Zelda were gone.
“Finally…” said Rauru “perhaps the next Sage of Spirit will not complain as much.”
