It was during a rather disgusting meal of dead bird did Link realise the cure. The whole revelation was so shocking he stopped mid-chew and began staring at the imp-like creature before him for an uncomfortable amount of time. When Midna realised he had taken an odd fascination of her, she spoke, accidentally spitting meat due to a full mouth.

'What're chu lookin' at?'

Link dropped his slice of bird. 'An idea came to me.'

Swallowing her food, Midna widened her eyes. 'You have an idea? An idea? As in, you have a brain?'

The boy slumped his shoulders.

'Are you feeling okay, Link?'

'Okay, I get it: I'm stupid.'

Midna laughed. 'He admits, finally!'

'No, no! That's not what I meant.'

In a hurry, Link crawled over to where she sat and yanked her food off her.

'I was eating that!'


Never did Link order her to be quiet, so out of feeling shocked by this unusual behaviour Midna's lips remained closed. Placing a hand on her shoulder, Link continued.

'I read it somewhere-- what's wrong with you. I think I know how to bring you back into your original state.'

After a couple of seconds, Midna finally had an efficient response which didn't involve slapping him. 'You are stupid.'

'Trust me on this, I... No, I'm confident it will work.'

'Remember last time you were confident one of your brilliant ideas would work? I hope the scars are still there to remind you.' Only a couple of weeks ago, Link thought it would be a good idea to use chickens to fly from house to house. At first it was quite reasonable, until he fell. 'I hope it hurt.'

'Thank you. This is different though.'

'Before you do what you're about to do, tell me: where did you find out this information?'

Link opened his mouth then shut it. 'Uh, a book.'

'Oh. Right, yeah. I did wonder.' Midna's sarcasm was so heavy it made Link cringe. Yet he gave her a look of encouragement and she sighed. 'Fine. Are you going to chant or perform a magic spell?'

Midna received her answer when Link leaned forwards and gently kissed her. It lasted a little more than a second, but her heart pounded against her chest and she flushed. Wait, what?

Then Link pulled away and watched her for a while.



Oh for crying out loud. 'You–– This idea. It didn't come from a fairytale book, did it?'

The boy shrugged, 'I don't know––'

'Link. You're a moron. This isn't a fairytale.'

'It just fit: you were a princess who was transformed into a creature, and I was––'

'You're not a Prince, sweetheart, but a girl can dream.'

Link pulled a face. 'You don't have to be rude about it.'

Midna sniggered, and squeezed his cheek. 'I am flattered you tried, though, Link. Now I know what book it is you keep stashing under your pillow when I appear. Heehee.'

Pouting, Link decided to avoid suggesting anymore brilliant ideas from now.

Worth it though.
In which Link mistakes himself to be in a fairytale, not a legend. Thanks for reading!

Edit: Just discovered this oneshot is freakishly alike to this comic strip by HikariMichi: [link] which you should check out if you haven't.
Honest to God, it's scary and funny how similar they are.

Have you seen my comic? [link]
This fanfic is a lot like my comic, even your description … And the dialogue. Coincidence?

OH MY GOD!! I swear I did not copy nor did I mean to??? I'm so sorry either way. This is scary how they're way too alike. If you want, I can take this down.

You're right, it is creepy … Our minds must work alike or something O__O At least mine is a comic and yours is a fanfic … And yours didn't have the "big bad wolf" thing … If it did it would be way too scary!! XD
Thank you, but as long as you didn't get the idea from me … If someone had based their fanfic on my comic I would have at least preferred if they asked me first ^^; xP

I promise I would never steal anybody's work. I find this whole thing funny actually, and might as well link your comic in the description because they are freakishly alike. I am honest when I say I didn't copy it. This is my first time seeing it, and I honestly feel kind of bad for how it looks like I totally nabbed your idea. But hey, as long as you know I didn't, then all's cool I suppose x)

Yeah, it is ^^ Don't worry, I believe you. These days, it's impossible to get a completely original idea … Someone has ALWAYS done something similar before … You can't avoid it xD
Bureizu-za-Vampire Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2013
Thank you for understanding. That's really good and kind of you. And you're right: I tend to get similar situations with other people's work too. ;)

I see :) Yeah, even if it looks like somebody stole your idea, that doesn't have to be the case … Many times I've come up with an idea and then discovered that somebody else had already done it (or something similar to it). It feels rather disappointing … But sometimes when I really wanted to do the idea, I did it anyway because it is still my version and no one can do my version other than me … Unless of course they copy it xD And I never copy something some one else has done entirely, I try to at least make it original in some way.
