If you have received this, then I am dead. I can't be sure if you have all been made aware of it yet. You expressed a desire to help me, and I did appreciate that offer. I have gathered information about this place and sought to act to put a stop to everything myself, but apparently I have failed.

I have placed this information somewhere safe in the administrative levels. Do not be hasty, but at some point please act to find this information. It will be within places only I can access, and has security as a necessity, to keep the others out, so please be careful and do not act alone.

Burn this letter, but please spread the information around. Do not use the network to pass this information on, speak of it only in person and never within range of any of the worker or retrieval units. The bathrooms and sauna levels are the safest, but as long as you are quiet and not too near the walls you should be safe.

Thank you for your offer of help. I regret I was not able to help all of you.

I was told that you, too, had received a certain letter. I believe we should organize a meeting between all of us who have. To my knowledge there are three of us.

In two days' time, that is, on the 27th day of this month (as I realize there is often a delay), we should meet at the mixed sauna on the level immediately below this mailroom an hour after the cafeteria stops serving the midday meal. I advise you to bring no more than three companions, as we need to keep the discussion of a manageable size.

I appreciate your leadership and your courage, and am glad to know I am not the only one who turned to the inside for help. Let us honor Dax's last wishes together.

Princess Zelda,

I am aware that you will be suspicious of this note since it is unsigned. I apologize for that, but secrecy is needed at this moment. I ask that you do not involve outside people with what I am about to discuss here since it will put both myself and several other people in danger.

Ryoji Mochizuki, as you may have seen, attempted to reveal information on the network. Ganondorf prevented him from revealing as much information as he could. In addition, he performed some magic that split part of his shadow off and attached it to Ryoji's.

I believe that this bit of shadow is tracking whom he's with and perhaps what is said. I do not have confirmation of this, but it is what I would expect something like that to do. As you are more familiar with Ganondorf than I am, I ask you if there is any way to free him from this spell.

I would advise you to not approach him until you are ready to break the spell due to the previously-mentioned likely effects of the spell. However, I do believe you are one of the best people to help him. It would be beneficial if he were under some form of protection, I think. He does not seem comfortable at all under Ganondorf's orders, and I suspect he truly does wish to help you.

Should you need assurance of this letter's truth, I ask that you take it to Enoch. Both the handwriting and the characters this is written in will be familiar to him, and he can assure you of the truth of my intentions here.

Should you need to approach Ryoji before you contact him in person, his mailbox is 0602.

If you could meet me again in the men's bathroom at your soonest convenience, it would be much appreciated. I would suggest bringing your disguise. I doubt that what I have to tell you is a well-kept secret, but I would rather not take any chances.

I would also like to extend an apology regarding our conversation the day of the glamour failure. I was not in any place to be conducting a civil exchange.

[The little arrow compels you! Do it, do it!]

Nobody knows, but whatever it is, it knits its own sweaters!

If you ever find yourself questioning whether or not you're doing the right thing, stop. Because you are and you always have been, Zelda. Even if people don't agree with it, you've done everything with people's best interests at heart. And frankly, that's admirable. None of us really deserve someone as good as you on our side, but hell if I am going to complain about that.

You're a true hero, Zelda, completely worthy of the title of Legend that you have in my world. Nobody knows what's going to happen from here, but I am sticking to whatever you think is the right thing to do. My allegiance lies with you and it always will, for better or worse. Though I have no doubt that it will be "for better". Like there's basically no way that it can't be.

I don't mean for this to put any pressure on you though. I really hope I haven't stressed you out because that is the very last thing I want. You have your followers, people to support you in case you ever falter, which even the best and strongest leaders do. The situation is pretty heavy after all, it's dangerous to try and carry it all alone. But you probably already knew that, so I'm just preaching to the choir here.

I've sent out quite a few of these notes now. And the main purpose of all of them was to tell people not to give up. But I know it will be a cold day in Hell before Princess Zelda of all people gives up and lets the tower win. So I feel like I can safely skip that part with you. Instead, I can promise you that I won't give up, no matter how much darker it gets from here. And if I have my way, nobody else will either. So I guess, since I can skip on that, I will just end this on one, single point.

Don't forget how to smile. :)

Dear Zelda,

I've been meaning to talk to you about a few concerns I've been having, so if you don't mind, could we meet up somewhere to discuss them? A friend of mine has been having some doubts too, so if we could talk about those so that I could help him out, that would be nice. The library might be a bit too small, but how about the twenty-fifth floor? I can give Ivan the slip and meet you there whenever you want.

Just don't ignore this note please. We really need to talk.

It's alright! Better late then never! ^^;

[personal profile] tohko_amano 2013-07-29 07:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Dear Zelda,

Well..your Masked Ball was a good idea to try and get people informed, but you didn't tell me, and it looked like you invited people that had no idea what was going on or why. I've told you this before, but I'll write it here again for you-you're not alone. If you didn't tell Enoch and I, then you should have. We're here to help! And inviting people that we didn't know and ones that didn't know was happening probably wasn't the best idea.

As for my friend, it's not exactly your leadership here..he's had a bad experience in the past, and he's worried about being betrayed again. Zelda..could you tell me some of your story? Just a little so that I can reassure him? He's a dear friend of mine, so I hope you will.


Tohko Amano, the book girl.
tohko_amano: (Apologetic)

And again, it's okay! :3

[personal profile] tohko_amano 2013-08-06 12:04 am (UTC)(link)
Dear Zelda,

That's alright, and I'm glad to hear that you trust Enoch and I..but even if we didn't have much time, we would have found a way to help you out, if you told us. I'm always in the library, and ditching Ivan is a pain, but it's not hard. And preparation is always nice..but if you invite the wrong people or people who aren't involved or trustworthy, that sort of prep will get to you. But hopefully you've learned from that mistake!

And don't worry about telling me a salt-filled story. Even if it's painful and makes me cry, I still want to hear it, both for me and my friend. I've had a few run-ins with Ganon before. He's not a pleasant person, even if he is usually true to his word when he's threatening people.

I am sorry that you and Link failed though. Those seven years must have been horrible. Did Link ever manage to return? And how did he vanish in the first place?

Dear Zelda,

I've heard of The Master Sword before from Tetra..but while it's nice that the sword was trying to avoid having children use it, if you both were actively fighting against Ganon at that age, I probably just made things worse for you and everyone else with all the waiting. I'm sure the land and people suffered, and I know from books that young children can wield swords and be courageous if they have a goal in mind. You two certainly did.

However, it's good that Ganon is sealed. I do have one question though that's a bit unrelated to do the floods tie in with your world? Or is Tetra from a different timeline?


Tohko Amano, the book girl.
tohko_amano: (Lecturing)

[personal profile] tohko_amano 2013-08-21 12:32 am (UTC)(link)
Dear Zelda,

The stories I am speaking of are not wholly idyllic or kind. I'm sure Wataru and Mitsuru would be pretty annoyed if someone called their journey wholly kind, beautiful, or childlike. They had to face a lot. Murder, fate, and destruction of whole countries. They had different circumstances than you and Link..but Wataru was still able to complete a lot because he was brave and kept going, even though he was young.

..I'm just unsure as to why that was a specific rule of the sword, that's all. And I'm sure that you probably don't know the answer to that question either. And who can say that a world where Link didn't have to sleep would be perfect? No world is ever perfect. Nor is any person.

It's fine if you don't want to talk anymore about your past. However, if Tetra is your descendent, I'm guessing that the seals broke and that the Goddesses took action.

It's probably not what you want to hear, but it's going to get worse before it gets better. Delegate more. You got a support network. Use it. Nobody wants to see you down, least of all the people who've left, and I got six months personal experience saying that. They aren't the lost ones, they're the ones that went home. Now isn't the time to worry about who stays and who goes, or what's right or wrong. Leave that to me.

Princess Zelda,

I talked with Enoch recently about helping with the organization you two are involved in. He said that I should contact you about joining.

[You know the one. Rick's decided that saying anything more specific might get them all in trouble, so he's trying to be vague--which he's never been very good at doing intentionally.]

I don't have any specific skills that I can offer, but if there's anything I can do, I'll do my best to find a way. I want to help. If your mission is still what I think it is, I want to help more than anything.

Zelda, Ruler,

There is a being here from one of the Grail Wars I participated in. This man is a madman who has tortured and mutilated children for his black magic. I managed to defeat him in the Grail War, but that was when I had my other sword and was a proper Servant: neither of which I can claim here.

He thinks I am Jeanne D'arc, la Pucelle d'Orléans, despite my protests and the fact she was born nearly a millenia after I. He is a complete madman and must be stopped. If you see a man with bulging eyes, do your best to subdue him. He claims he has met another Jeanne here and I am trying to find that person. I know not if she is Jeanne or another he has deluded himself into believing is her, but she needs to be found before he begins to make 'sacrifices' in 'her' name.

I sent a letter to Enoch about gathering and stocking the kitchen on floor 60. Boils down to I want to staff an alternate source for food in the Tower that isn't the cafeteria or restaurant.

We've been working in the kitchen for a few months now and have a pretty good system set up. Trouble is, the people who do the most also have several other jobs to do, and we're low on man power. I gave Enoch a list of the skill sets we need. Just having people to do the smaller tasks would help, but with a routine it'll get easier. I'm hoping to open the kitchen up for residents this month.

I forgot to ask in Enoch's letter if anyone was interested in helping Xion out with her clothing mission too.

If you're interested, leave a note on my door.

Thank you for writing to me. But you shouldn't feel bad about what's happened. Don't let it bother you so much. It was not your fault that Ganondorf came back. Tetra and I fixed it. And none of us could have guessed everything that happened afterward.

I hope me an Tetra can be as wise and thoughtful as you someday. It was kind of weird to get here and see how much she had changed because of you, but I'm sure that she's going to be a wonderful queen. Thank you for being with her. And for being so strong for everyone.

[It's a small box, wrapped in simple brown paper and tied with a purple ribbon. Within it are the delicate remains of pressed Canterbury bells, scattered over top of what is most definitely an ocarina. It's wooden and painted a rich, dark green. The craftsmanship is not flawless, but it is decent; it makes sound if blown into, at least. Cradling the ocarina is a white handkerchief embroidered with a red cross, which is made much more skilfully than the little wooden instrument.

The handwriting of the letter is familiar, and meticulous as ever.]


Perhaps it is cruel. But if that is the case, then I must be of a truly wicked nature, for my own gratitude is certainly of no insignificant measure.

It is true that I have lived a rather long time and have seen many people come and go. However, though their time with me is often so comparatively brief, I keep close the people who have cared for me. Often, it is in times of war and great strife that a nation needs those people the most.

Two years is not a long time, but nations would fall in that time if not for people like you. Hyrule is very fortunate to have you, as am I. Truthfully, I would not wish to imagine a life here without you.

On the cloth is an approximation of the flag of my country. Though it will fade as the glamour does, I wish you to know that I will always consider you under my protection as I would one of my own people.

As for the second gift, I expect you know what it is. I hope you are able to find use for it.
