    Hey there Hylians, Gorons, Zoras, Gerudo, and others,
    We are the Writers Of Hyrule. We are currently hard at work on a project that is full of original content! There are 3 of us involved at the moment, but we'd really like to bring more people on board to share in the enjoyment of working on this project.

    A bit of background, this story has a very deep storyline that is set over the ENTIRE Zelda timeline. This is not just your average, everyday "Fanfic." The way it is written and presented is intended to give the reader the feel of playing it as a game. For example, at the beginning of each chapter starting with chapter 3, there are objectives listed. I am posting a link to the Google Drive document so that you can see what I'm talking about. There is also artwork that has been created for each time the character (not Link, but a new character, and no, none of us are putting ourselves in the story) receives an important item. You will see this near the end of chapter 3 (Page 21).

    This post is NOT about promotion. I need you guys to know that it genuinely makes me happy to share the enjoyment of working on such a big project with other people that are seriously interested in being involved.

    My name is Josh, and I am the head of the project. I was inspired to start this after playing through Breath of the Wild (which I'm still playing, of course. Lots to do still!) and learning about an Ocarina of Time mod called Project 3rd Quest. If you haven't heard of that yet, I'd suggest checking it out. It will kick you right in the nostalgia: https://project3q.com/

    So now, with that explanation out of the way, here is the link to the document. I'm looking for people to get involved with ideas, artwork, and even things as simple as coming on board to help me make the text flow as smoothly as possible for the reader. Give it a read, give it some thought, and if you're interested, let's get in touch!

    Yes, that will be great for now. No particular preference, whatever you feel would work best for this project. I've got very limited knowledge of the different types haha.

    Now you can make categories and forums based on what kind of fanfiction you want, and you can post it. You can share them here too if you want.

    Hello, Josh.
    It sounds like a pretty cool focus on having a fanfic that is written in a way that transmits the feeling like when we play the game. I am sure it is don with passion and love.

    I am very happy to see this developing. Welcome to the family, guys.
    I am excited to see your project develop. :D

    Thank you so much, Kaynil! We are very excited about this project. What with the option to create OoT mods at this point, we are considering looking into that. We will continue writing right now and keep pushing the story forward!
