A'ight, here we go! This story takes place directly after Majora's Mask so...yeah. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After successfully saving Termina, Link traveled on Epona back to Hyrule. He rode calmly and slowly through the Lost Woods. After awhile he saw two glowing dots in the distance. As he got closer, two smaller dots appeared, and Link realized they were eyes.
Tatl and Tael glowed valiantly next to the Skull Kid's bright, and beaming (and maskless) face.
"...Link," said the Skull Kid quietly. "We need your help."
Link was understandingly furious. He had just saved the world twice, can't he have a break?
"Grrahhh!!" Link yelled.
"NO WAIT!" exclaimed the Skull Kid quickly. "It's not what you think!"
Link calmed down after realizing that he drew his sword.
"Link, do you know a fairy named...Navi?" asked Tatl.
Link jumped up in excitement, as his whole reason for leaving Hyrule was to find her!
Link nodded quickly in agreement
"Well..." started Tael. "We found this fairy in a cage. She said her name was Navi and that she was captured as part of this insane experiment...she said that only Link would be able to help her..."
Link stared back questioningly...
The Skull Kid noticed Link's confusion and remarked "The captor was described as being a middle-aged, heavyset man in green spandex."
Great, after Diagia and Rayquaza, we now lost 491 different stories/plot devices down the drain.
Sorry to complain. I'm for DiU's line of thinking. It's interesting to mix up worlds every now and then, but it becomes one of those bad KH fanfics after a while. Plus, it's been pokemon fuck up shit twice. I'm probably just complain for the sake of it, but I'm just for keeping some sanity in terms of setting.
Was going to make a "change" American Kirby, but I'm not that skilled at Fireworks.

I'm not complaing, that was a joke/sarcasm, it had the "tongue" smiley.
<- Correct me, if I'm wrong but this is sarcasm (the smiley) isn't it?
Link felt a chill run down his spine, he knew who it was. It was none other than Tingle.
The Skull Kid blabbed on for a bit before finally giving Link directions to Navi’s captor.
Link and Epona then hurried off to their destination knowing that the world was once again in danger. Their long journey had began.
600 seconds later (aka 10 minutes, what, can’t journing to save the world be quick for once?)
Their long journey ended as Link and Epona in tow as they reached “Tingle’s Super Duper Secret Fort” ™. (As read on the sign in front of it, just in front of the not yet completed “Tingle’s Super Duper Secret Fort Giftshop” ™).
Ka-loom-pa! Shouted Tingle as he poked his head above the wall of his Super Duper Secret Fort. “It’s my arch nemesis Link and to a lesser extent his horse Epona have arrived.”
Link (and Epona) stared dumbfounded back at Tingle.
“Now before I kill you, this must be the part, where I tell the hero my master plan of EVIL! Ka-loom-pa-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ka-loom-pa-ha-ha-ha-ha!”
“You see Link, the reason I kidnapped Navi was to ingrate her annoying personality and my annoyance into one annoying lifeform so powerful we end up being the most evil being in this universe.”
Link had just gotten of Epona’s back when he (and Epona again) stared even more dumbfounded back at Tingle. Epona even let out a “Neighhhh-aaaah?” in disbelief. All the low oxygen Tingle had experienced from flying had finally affected his brain for the worse.
Tingle then pulled out a bazooka and aimed at Link, “prepare to die his Fairy is now in my possession Boy!”
He fired and a single bomb with slowy lit fuse rolled out and landed on the ground, rolling and stopping just in front of Link and Epona. The bomb’s fuse slowy hissed as Link picked it up and threw back at the front wall “Tingle’s Super Duper Secret Fort” ™. The bomb exploded and the wall shattered making Tingle go flying threw the air before hitting the ground hard.
“Ka-loom-pa! Darn those bomb’s, that wasn’t supposed to happen” said Tingle as Link and Epona stormed towards him.

Approaching the green fiend, Link was suddenly shocked to see Tingle spring up, apparently suffering no damage! Cautiously, Link advanced... "That's close enough, small green child!" sang out Tingle, and started to spin on the spot, all the while chanting "Tingle-Tingle-Kooloh-Limpa! Tingle-Tingle-Kooloh-Limpa!"
Suddenly, a cloud of sparkly gas began to fill the air! Link tried to avoid breathing in the glittery fumes, but he could already feel the effects - his reactions got slower, his eyes began to droop, he was falling asleep! The last thing he heard was "these are Tingle's words! Don't....steal........them......!"
Groggily, Link awoke in a horrible place. Fake flowers everywhere, very innapropriate golden statues, bright gawdy colours...he was in Tingle's lair! And worse, he couldn't get up - he was strapped to a table! "...Hey! Link! Is that you?!" Straining himself, the young hero turned his head and focused on a small cage hanging from the ceiling...Navi! It didn't look good, she was harnessed up to some sort of evil machine, no doubt to give Tingle the power he'd always dreamed of! "Tee hee! Awake at last! You will be witness to my ultimate rose-coloured triumph!!!" Link turned his head painfully in the other direction, and saw Tingle himself strapped into the machine, only in his UNDERPANTS! Link felt queasy.
"Time to flip the Funtime Switch!" he laughed manically. "STOP! CEASE THIS TRAVESTY OF SCIENCE!" Suddenly a melodious voice filled the room. No, Link thought, it was more like three voices, speaking almost in unison. "TINGLE! WE COULD ALLOW YOUR EXISTENCE BEFORE, BUT THIS ABOMINATION GOES TOO FAR! FAR ENOUGH TO ANGER THE GODS THEMSELVES!" So! It was the three goddesses, handing out judgement that was way overdue in Link's opinion. "HERO OF TIME, WE GRANT TO YOU THE STRENGTH TO STOP THIS FIEND. WE'LL EVEN LET YOU OFF THE FETCH-QUEST, BECAUSE WE'RE IN A HURRY." Link felt a rush of power coursing through his body, and he quickly used it to snap his tight ropes. "Now lad, er, please don't do anything hasty..." stammered Tingle. He struggled towards the door, but his machine straps kept him in place. Link reached for his sword, discarded on the floor by Tingle whilst imprisoning him, and sliced through the bars of Navi's cage like hot butter. "Thanks Link! Now lets blow this thing and go home!" Link nodded in agreement, and struck a piercing blow to the monstrous machine. As it began to shudder and steam, Link and Navi ran for the exit, leaving a tangled Tingle to his fate.
BOOM! The explosion was immense, but handily didn't destroy any of the surrounding forest, so all the squirrels and bunnies were safe. Link looked back at the charred ruins, only to be surprised to see a blackened middle-aged man stumble out! "YES, WE LET HIM SURVIVE" spake the heavenly voices, WE COULDN'T LET HIM DIE, THERE'S JUST SOMETHING...APPEALING ABOUT HIM!" "I w-won't be any m-more trouble" stuttered Tingle, swaying from side to side, "I've learned my lesson, it's back to the floaty balloon for me!" But Link was already riding off into the sunset, perhaps a bit too speedily than necessary!

Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)
Jul 23, 2020 8:32:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!
Jul 23, 2020 8:33:38 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.
Jul 24, 2020 22:46:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.
Jul 26, 2020 1:45:06 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)
Jul 26, 2020 1:46:07 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.
Jul 26, 2020 8:41:58 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on
Jul 26, 2020 22:04:05 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.
Aug 2, 2020 23:44:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
