The most recent pages of The Legend of Zelda : Lurking Shadows doujinshi will be displayed here! Enjoy! ;)

Welcome to LurkingShadowsFANS!!!

Lurking Shadows fans, welcome to the LurkingShadowsFANS group! :D This group was created for you and for your love of my doujinshi. As sometimes I need help for specific elements for Lurking Shadows, this group will give you the opportunity to contribute to my doujinshi and receive point rewards in exchange, if your suggestion becomes part of Lurking Shadows or if it is featured in the 'Featured Fanart of the Month' folder. It is important to know that submissions must only be related to Lurking Shadows, so if you want to submit a fanart of Link for example, it must be the Link from Lurking Shadows and not from real games. For real Zelda games related stuff, please submit at my other group here :a-link-for-the-fans.deviantart…

I will explain here the features of this group.

:spotlight-left: Heart Value :spotlight-right:

The amount of points obtained through a successful submission is granted accordingly to its Heart Value found in respective folders. Heart Values are as follows :

:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: (10 hearts) are worth 30 :points:
:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: (9 hearts) are worth 21 :points:
:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: (8 hearts) are worth 18 :points:
:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: (7 hearts) are worth 15 :points:
:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: (6 hearts) are worth 12 :points:
:heart::heart::heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: (5 hearts) are worth 9 :points:
:heart::heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: (4 hearts) are worth 6 :points:
:heart::heart::heart: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: :bulletblack: (3 hearts) are worth 3 :points:

Heart Values appear in the description of the differents folders. Take a look at the folder's description to see the Heart Value and to see how much points can be earned if your submission has made its way successfully to Lurking Shadows! :)

:spotlight-left: Contests :spotlight-right:

From time to time contests will be held. The description in the folder dedicated to contests will let you know what kind of contest is being held and every detail you need to know about it, including the prize you will be granted if you are the winner. To participate to contests, you just need to submit what is required by the contest in the contest folder before the stated deadline in the folder's description. The winner will be announced in the Announcements journal entry on this group page, and will receive the prize mentionned in the folder's description. I hope many of you will participate, as the prizes will either be getting some kind of artwork made by me, points or Premium membership for one, three or maybe even twelve months!!! It is worth participating, dont you think? ;)

:spotlight-left: How Folders Work :spotlight-right:
Every folder in this group will require specific submissions, and details can be known by reading each folder's description. Here is the list of the folders and a short description about them.

:star:Featured Fanart of the Month:star:
Once a month, I will take a look at fanarts submitted in the Lurking Shadows Fanart folder. I will choose one fanart, which can be either a drawing or a text, and display it here. The lucky deviant who had his or her artwork chosen will receive :points: according to the folder's Heart Value.

:heart:Storyline:heart:
This folder will gather all ideas you may have regarding the storyline of Lurking Shadows. It may be either texts or drawings. What is submitted here must have an effect on the entire storyline and have to become part of the doujinshi for you to receive :points: rewards.

:heart:Plot Elements:heart:
This folder will gather all ideas you may have regarding plot elements of Lurking Shadows. It may be either texts or drawings. What is submitted here must have an impact on a whole chapter or a big part of it and have to become part of the doujinshi for you to receive :points: rewards.

:heart:Original Characters:heart:
This folder will gather all ideas you may have regarding original characters for Lurking Shadows. It may be either texts or drawings. What is submitted here can be original character designs, clothing or personality, or a mix of the three. If your submission is making its way in the doujinshi, you will receive :points: according to the Heart Value of the folder, but keep in mind that then everything related to your submission in this folder will become my own. However, you will still be given credit along with the :points: reward.

:heart:Translation:heart:
This folder will gather translated bubbles through text submissions for every language other than English or French. If you want to translate pages of the doujinshi, you can freely do it through a text submitted here. You will need to let me know which page you translated, which language it was translated in, and in a script-like format (example : If you were translating from English to another language - I will take French as an example - you must write it like this :
- Hey, Link, are you alright?! : Hé, Link, est-ce que ça va?!
- Huh... LINK?! : Euh... LINK?!)
Your translated text will require my approbation before I add the page in this new translation. Once it is approved, you will receive :points: rewards according to the Heart Value of the folder for each page translated. :points: will gather very fast if you are a dutiful translater! ;)

:heart:Monster, Dungeon And Building Design:heart:
This folder will gather all ideas you may have regarding monsters, dungeon and building designs. If your submission makes its way to doujinshi, you will get :points: accordingly to this folder's Heart Value, and if your submission also impacts on the storyline or on the plot, you will get extra points accordingly to the Heart Value of the respective folders.

:heart:Weapon Design:heart:
This folder will gather all ideas you may have regarding weapons Link, Ryan, monsters, and every other character might wield. If your submission makes its way to the doujinshi, you will get :points: rewards accordingly to this folder Heart Value.

:heart:Names:heart:
This folder will gather all ideas you may have regarding characters, monsters, dungeons, areas, cities, items... well, everything that will need a name. If the name pleases me and makes its way to Lurking Shadows, you will receive :points: rewards accordingly to this folder's Heart Value.

:heart:Featured:heart:
This folder will gather all submissions that had won contests, that have been displayed in the Featured Fanart of the Month folder and those that made their way to Lurking Shadows. This folder will not give you :points: rewards, but it will give you pride. ;)

:heart:Lurking Shadows Fanart:heart:
This folder will gather all fanart you may do related to Lurking Shadows. It may be either texts or drawings, and submitting in this folder gives you a chance to be featured in the Featured Fanart of the Month folder and receive a great number of :points: rewards. So please do some Lurking Shadows fanart so that I can reward you with :points:!!! ;)

:spotlight-left: Announcements :spotlight-right:

Through blogs and journals written on the Group's main page, announcements will be announcing contests winners, new contest arrivals, special requests from me regarding Lurking Shadows and so on. Check the announcements often to make sure you do not miss a chance to receive more :points:, participate to contests or to obtain even better rewards! ;)

:spotlight-left: Exclusive News :spotlight-right:

Once a month, a Lurking Shadows character will be chosen and exclusive info will be revealed on that character on a daily basis (at least I will try to do it on a daily basis). These exclusive news will be told through a journal entry and only in this group, so I would recommend to become a member or at least to watch the group to make sure you will not miss any exclusive info regarding your favorite character! ;)

So... This is how this group will work. How does it sound to you? :) If you have questions, you can ask them to me anytime through the group's comment section or through the group note system. I will be more than happy to reply to you. ;)

So once again, welcome to LurkingShadowsFANS and have fun in this group! I hope to see many submissions!!! :D

Well, the reason is simple : he was originally meant by Nintendo to be an avatar linking the player to the game, and thus a link.

Funny, isn't it?! :D

It is also why Link does not talk in his games, but I have heard that Nintendo was considering alowwing him to talk in the upcoming Zelda for the WiiU... I really hope these rumors are true!!!

Please Nintendo, give Link a great voice and great sentences to say so we, fangirls, can drool over it...

Aah... Just thinking about a talking Link, with a deep, manly voice, makes me drool...

what do you think about it, guys?
Sad Mynphrah is sad... :cry:

In barely two weeks, :iconlurkingshadowsfans: lost two watchers. Why?! I guess I am not fast enough when it comes to posting new pages and to keep this group interesting. Or maybe this group is boring already?!

Sigh...

I know that among you there are true fans of my fan-comic. To you, I shall entrust the mission of helping Lurking Shadows and :iconlurkingshadowsfans: to become more poular and to arract more fans to the comic and more members to the group. I am counting on you, guys!!! :eager:
Although Lurking Shadows' story unveils slowly to all of you as each page takes so much time to draw, the storyline of Lurking Shadows is decided and of course I know of all important events to occur, including how the story will end and also, what will happen to Link.

I will not say anything about the fate awaiting Link. But I am curious about what you think will happen to him.  Did you ever wonder about Lurking Shadows' ending, and if you did, how you expect it to be? I would love to know about it. :)

Many Lurking Shadows characters' fate is sealed, and this includes Garland, Ophelia, Nathaniel, Grandma, Dark Link and Link himself.

Who will die and who will survive?

How far will Dark Link go in order to reach his goals?

What will happen to Hyrule and Solt'herith?

Very often I wish I could be able to draw faster, as I am so eager to share the really interesting events that are coming up in the story!!!

But well...

Since I can't...

Do you have any idea about what could happen to Link until I reaveal the truth?
When Lance was still alive and well, he was enjoying quite a few hobbies. Among them, he was reknowned for his exceptional forging skills and he forged his own sword as well as Ryan's unique rapier. Lance's swords and rapiers were well-known for their incredible strenght and durability, and were very popular among the nobility. But Lance being a noble young man himself, he could hardly hope to live off forgery and thus, his swords and rapiers were very rare and thus even more valuable. When he died, his trusted sword became the only sword Nathaniel would wield, and Ryan also wanted to wield his rapier and nothing else.

Lance was also a very talented pianist, and he often played music with Link, who was of course playing the Ocarina and Ryan playing the violin. The trio were all exceptional musicians, but while Link never gave up playing the Ocarina, Ryan completely stopped playing the violin after Lance's death.

And finally, Lance was an incredible swordsman, like everyone else who were part of the Albertine family. He was not only Link's tutor, but he was also the private swordsmanship teacher of many noble people, including the infamous Crown Prince Garland Solt'he himself and of course Ryan. Lance knew sword moves from every style exisiting, and was par with Link's sword skills.

Lance was an amazing young man for his age, but unfortunately, the tragedy that occured could not be prevented...
Welcome to the Lurking Shadows Character Interviews feature!!! Please see below about the rules of this feature and the characters list of the characters from Lurking Shadows avalaible to reply to your questions!

By the way, if you discuss a lot with a character, his/her behavior towards you might change and they may even begin to warm up to you. Then their answers will be warmer and kinder, and in the case of Dark Link it will allow you to get to know him for who he is really deep down inside. All the discussions here will not have any effect on the main storyline of Lurking Shadows. But it will allow you to get to know the characters' personality better. The only things they are unlikely to give an answer to are related to plot elements of the story and of the storyline. And if you ask a question about the future of a character who have died or to Link relatively to his illness while he is unaware of it, it might upset those characters for obvious reasons.

Here is how this feature works :

:bulletgreen: Ask your question through the comment section of the group's main page or through a group note and specify which character you are asking the question to.

:bulletgreen: Check out this blog to see if the selected character replied to you (once a reply is posted, an update notification will be sent to the member who asked the question).

:bulletgreen: You must be a member of this group in order to ask the characters a question.

:bulletgreen: Questions can be asked in either English or French (the characters will reply in the language they were asked in).

:bulletgreen: You can ask any character featured in the characters list seen on this blog.

:bulletgreen: You can ask as many questions as you wish.

:bulletred: All questions related to yaoi/hentai and stuff between Link, Ryan, Dark Link or any character of the same sex will not be answered.

:bulletred: Vulgarity is to be avoided.

:bulletred:  Keep in mind the replies will be as if the characters were replying, so do not consider the answers to be mine.

Lurking Shadows Character List

You can ask questions to any character from this list (and the list will eventually get longer as the story develops, so keep an eye open for updates! ;))

:iconheart4wolves: asked : Question for Dark Link : Where did you grow up in this timeline?
Dark Link's Avatar by Mynhphrah replied : I grew up mostly in Hyrule field, where it becomes pure hell at night as so many monsters pop out and there were all those skeletons hoping to make me become like them too...

---

:iconsapphire-lynx4: asked : Well well, this questiom goes to Miss Sae.

When I learnt about your people, the Hufaeh, I became intrigued. So you are shorter, winged and and capable.of mind-readong? I must say that is amazing. How can you do all that? Hehem I mean, how do you guys work? Im curious, so sorry! nwnU

Sae's Avatar by Mynhphrah replied :  Well well! I presume that you are not from Solt'herith, are you? Because if you were, you would know who we truly are... The Hufaeh is unique to Solt'herian lands, as they are the result of a hybridation of Solt'herian and Fairy races. Once, a long, very long time ago, a fairy fell in love with a Solt'herian. Their love was so passionate and fiery, the Solt'herian person who was a very young woman became pregnant from the fairy's love who was a very handsome and kind male fairy. This was not legitimate as not only they were not married prior to the pregnancy, but also is was not well seen by the people when fairies and Solt'herians were loving each other. It happened that the young Solt'herian lady was distantly related to the imperial family, and while her baby survived, she died during the delivery. When the emperor of that era learned that one of his relatives had died by giving birth to a hybrid baby, he declared war against the fairy tribe. The  male fairy who was the father of the hybrid baby was held responsible for the tragedy, and as he was mourning his lost love, he offered to be sacrificed in exchange for the end of the war as the ultimate apology. The war raged on however despite the sacrifice, and the hybrid Solt'herian/Fairy people hid themselves away to try and be forgotten. The emperor's wife soon became very ill, and the only person knowing a way of saving her was a stubborn mute. The hybrid baby born out of the love of the sacrificed male fairy and of the deceased young Solt'herian lady had heard of the story of his birth and he was was as pure-hearted and kind as his late parents, and thus decided to help the empress despite all the horrible things the emperor had done. He left for the home of the stubborn mute, read her mind and brought back what was needed to save the empress. This is when the Hufaeh name was created, as the emperor realized his mistakes and vowed to always protect the hybrid race who could save his love. A pact was forged, and the Hufaeh received their tribe name. Hu standing for human and faeh being the old Solt'herian word for fairy,  this was the proof of alliance. This is how were appeared.

Our powers are the result of Solt'herian and Fairy mix of blood, which allowed us to be able to read through minds and hearts. Our wings are purely decorative as our hybridation made them paralyzed and thus we cannot fly, and it is also why we are so small and child-looking. We the Hufaeh are a proud tribe, and we never get involved in things that do not concerns us, and share what we can read in minds and hearts only on permission, and this includes evil people.

I hope this has answered your question.

:iconanimefan9545: asked : i have a question for Dark link



i find it cool how you sit in trees, but arren't you worried you might fall out? please don't hurt me for asking, i was just wondering.

Ps. if you want a friend i can be your friend since i don't have mutch friends either.

Dark Link's Avatar by Mynhphrah replied : Trees are my sanctuary. They are the only place monsters can't reach me at night and where I can sleep safely without the fear of being killed in my sleep. Falling out is the least of my concerns.

... a friend, huh? I don't even know what a friend is, so what could you be for me?


---

:iconloftwingqueen: asked : This is a question for Princess Zelda

As Princess, what would you say is the most valuable character quality a ruler or leader in charge of such a huge responsibility, like the kingdom of Hyrule, should have?

Thanks

Zelda's Avatar by Mynhphrah replied : In fact, there are many of them... But the most important one, as a princess, is to be fair and entirely dedicated to the people. The people must always come first, even if it implies the greatest of sacrifices...

:iconsapphire-lynx4: asked : Well hello~!
I have a tiny question for Sir Ryan Albertine ewe

So, is there a "special someone" in your life? No girl catch your eye yet, huh? wink wonk

Ryan's Avatar by Mynhphrah replied :  P-p-pardon me?! *Ryan heavily blushes* Er... Well... In all honesty this is a very delicate subject, and I... Hmm... Well...

Unfortunately, love has not come to me yet... Of course, if I was not in Link's shadow about the ladies, it would help greatly!!! Er... *Ryan heavily blushes again* This... This not what I meant!!! Oh... Link will be so mad at me when he will hear about this... Sigh...


---


:iconqueaky: asked : Nathaniel Albertine can you explain your relationship with Link?

Nathaniel' Avatar by Mynhphrah replied : Hmm... This is an interesting question indeed... A short answer would be that Link is my son Ryan's savior. But in all honesty, Link is more than that. One who saves an Albertine is forever in Albertine debt. Link saved my son, is like a lost brother to Ryan and is the Hero of Time. But to me, he is also like a son, even if adoption was not possible while I truly wished for it to be within my reach.
