The Ivory pillars have fallen.
The stain glass windows broken.
The Gates have fallen inward where power threw them wide.
The grass is dead and the blood left inside is just as fresh as the day it was spilled.
The throne room is destroyed, the bodies lay in a heap at the feet of the Princess, preserved the way she died with the blade of lights bane protruding from her chest where it impaled her high upon the wall.
The forms of the Hero and the Evil King lay at opposite end walls partially entombed by the others magic.
It is a place of the dead.
It is a place of the cursed.7/26/2010 . Edited 7/26/2010 #1 Report
Every now and then Kryn would stop and talk to the bodies of the deceased. Telling them things of what happened since he was here last, what their families are doing. He knew each one by name.7/27/2010 #2 Report
Thorik was slightly creeped out. Seriously, the guy was talking to the dead. Perhaps it might be considered a form respect, but he preferred to let the dead lie. Afterall, they would just get in the way of tomarrow.7/27/2010 #3 Report
Soon they were inside the castle and Kryn spoke to Thorik directly then "Did you notice that all the blood on the ground is fresh? That the bodies seemed to be almost newly killed?"7/27/2010 #4 Report
"I smelled the blood, but I just thought some rats started eating each other. But now that you mention it, the ground is wet. Are we in Termina?" he said the last one as a joke

Kryn shook his head and continued "These people are all my friends. Their spirts have yet to move on, bound here until the one responsible is killed." He stopped, and his hand balled into a fist. soon they were off and the path they took was long and winding. He stopped everynow and then, to talk to the bodies. Sometimes he would tell stories of the people to his companion, sometimes he was as silent as the people around them. And then they came to the throne room. It was a grizly sight, and the center piece being Zelda herself.7/27/2010 #6 Report
For the first time Kryn chuckled, the sound seemed out of place coming from him. "Amen." And then he moved around the room talking to different bodies, pulling things from out of his pack. Then he came to the body of the Hero He knelt and bowed before him saying nothing. He stood and lastly came to Zelda. He bowed before her and was quiet for a long time. "I'm sorry." The man got up and, with once again with the air of something that was a ritual to him, tried to pull the blade out unsuccessfully. "Damn the magics that surround this blade."7/27/2010 #8 Report
Thorik walked to the Hero's body "I don't know if you or your past lives can hear me, but my mom says hi...dirt bag." he then walked to Kyrn. "Perhaps I could try pulling the blade out?"
(Spoiler to Thorik's backstory. just wait ti'll we get to the Gohma's, his backstory will explode there.)7/27/2010 #9 Report
"I've asked people like you to pull it out before. Only the owner can pull it out, and the owner is still alive."7/27/2010 #10 Report
"Well, crap. And I thought I finally found that indestructible sword I was looking for." he turned to walk away, but then turned back and attempted to yank the sword out. "Give me the bloody sword!" after 10 seconds of yanking a fist came out of the sword and punched him in the face. fist went back in the sword and the words "Nice try hero-blooded" apeared on the sword. Thrick landed next to the Hero's remains. he looked up to see them "Don't you mock me ya prick."7/27/2010 #11 Report
Kryn watched the procedings for a moment and said "You're related to Link?"7/27/2010 #12 Report
"I see...You are a weapon's collector...Thus why you wanted my scythe." Soros said suddenly behind them, unaffected by the gruesome scene. "It's not often you see a blade do that to someone though..." Soros turned to look at Kryn..."I hope he isn't related to Link."7/27/2010 . Edited 7/27/2010 #13 Report
Kryn turned to Soros unaffected by his presence "I was wondering when you were going to show yourself. You ooze magic."7/27/2010 #14 Report
"Not the current one if that's what your thinking. The previous Hero and my mother fell in love and thus you see me as a result. Eventually I got tired of being royalty so I ran off to find some enjoyable fights and battles." He got back up then stopped "Oh yeah, I promised myself I'd do something once I met Link." He then proceeded to moon the remains of the Hero. "That felt good!" He then turned to the newcomer "So, you gonna show me that scythe or what?"7/27/2010 #15 Report
"Yes well, Sometimes life makes things happen like that sir. It's not like I was trying to hide really either." Soros stated while walking around and looking at the bodies. "And that depends on you really Half-ling. I don't know if you are worthy to be shown my scythe yet..."7/27/2010 . Edited 7/27/2010 #16 Report
Kryn shook his head at the half Zora as he turned back to Zelda "The strangest thing here is, all of the marks of the Triforce is gone from the three."7/27/2010 #17 Report
"Well, the logical thing is that Triforce split for new hosts. I'm sure as hell know I don't got it, nor do I want it. Now, If I could maybe find one of the Hero's swords, then I'll be set. I think I'll try the Master sword first." he then tried to yank it out, only to get punched again while the words "sorry junior, but mooning won't get you anywhere." apeared on the blade. Thorik then started to shout a string of Explitives7/27/2010 #18 Report
"I hope you don't plan on looking for this...Triforce...Usually these adventures don't end well...And You won't be pulling out that sword anytime soon Half-ling." Soros said now standing back at the entrance again.7/27/2010 #19 Report
Kryn pulled Thorik back and said "No, I mean, they're gone. The energy in the world was different when they were here. Now they are gone. Completely."7/27/2010 #20 Report
"Well then the Godesses have left us. Next thing you know the Twilight realm will become a paradise." Thorik proceeded to wak to the exit. "when you've finished paying your respects I'll be waiting at the gate. and if a zombie attacks you call me." he then walked towards the gate.7/27/2010 #21 Report
Soros watched Thorik leave and stared at Kyrn. "What will you do now? If the Goddesses have left what will you do for your dead friends now? Plan accordingly to your path." Soros said before turning to leave too.7/27/2010 #22 Report
"Find the new bearers and kill the orchestator of this mess." Kryn said through gritted teeth following him out.7/27/2010 #23 Report
"Ah...Then I wish you luck...We may cross blades...we may work together..I do not know...Do not let Hatred consume you though...You will regret it." Soros said cryptically as he walked out loud enough for Kyrn to hear.7/27/2010 #24 Report
As Thorik was exiting the castle he spotted something. A small Gohma possibly scouting for food for the hive. He immediatly ran back into the castle and hid behind Kryn "Hide me meat-shield!"7/27/2010 #25 Report
Kryn looked down at the Gohma then at Thorik. "Does he owe you money?"7/27/2010 #26 Report
The Gohma immediatly recognized Thorik and gave a highpitched whine used to signal other Gohma. The Gohma the seemed to speak "Thorik, I am glad to have found you, Mother Agatha has been dyeing to see you again since you left her with that bargain. I suggest you come calmly."
"NEVER!" Thorik then tried to hide behind the throne.

Kryn looked over at Thorik then at Gohma, and back again before he knealt down to gohma and asked "I'm lost could you please tell me what in the name of Din is going on?"7/27/2010 #28 Report
A scythe appeared in front of the Gohma and they saw Soros. "Agatha huh? I'm sorry to say that that name doesn't bring up very good memories...your not going to able to get any closer...or I will cut you down...Agatha has warning..." Soros said while staring at the Gohma.7/27/2010 #29 Report
"We only need Prince Thorik to fulfill his role as a...what do Hylian say...Political Chesspiece. Mother Agatha has been obsessing over him ever since he ran away, so please understand she really wants this wedding to happen as quickly as possible. So please help me carry him to the transporter caste drones."
"Mother ***." said Thorik as some Gohma were trying to pry him from using Zelda as an anchor. unfortunatly Ganon's sword punched him again thus making him lose his grip and be carried off.
"Nevermind, however the Hylian without scythe is invited to the wedding."
