With the success of commercial farms, Lon-Lon Ranch has been struggling to win the affection and wallets of Castletown. But there's always a few things that can't be pumped from a factory: the best milk in Hyrule, pure-bred horses, and Malon. Lovely, athletic, and down-to-earth, the ranch owner's daughter is no ordinary girl. When she's not helping run the farm with her father, Malon's on horseback, training to become the best rider in the country.
A few miles from Castletown is a thick and beautiful woods. On the outskirts of those woods sits a small town of carpenters and loggers. And on the outskirts of THAT town is a modest apartment rented out by a man called Link. That's his nickname anyway. Link is the hero of our story, a fencing and archery enthusiast with pint-sized means and olympic dreams. Orphaned at a young age, he's made ends meet with the help and favoritism of Mr. Deku, the town's aging mayor.
When the time came for Zelda's family to find a nanny for their newborn girl, the choice was obvious. Impa is a longtime family friend of their clan, an eccentric woman that raised Zelda with a firm but loving hand. But beneath her daily chores is another life. Impa is a spy, a member of a dwindling secret society that works to keep ethical political leaders, like Zelda's father, from those who'd prefer them to resign. This protection is why Impa remained at the family estate long after Zelda entered adulthood.
Zelda, named after the wife of her father's favorite author, is the reclusive heiress of an ancient family fortune. While her father pursues his career as a powerful but benevolent politician, Zelda spends her days practicing the harp and ocarina at her family's estate. Beautiful and kind, she's admired by all who are fortunate enough to see her. But Zelda's life is no fantasy. Burdened by her family's multitude of secrets, there are few people she can trust. Among the lucky few are Impa, her lifelong caretaker, and Link, a childhood friend and admirer.
Did you know that domestic abuse is a major cause of women's homelessness?
According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, “When a woman leaves an abusive relationship, she often has nowhere to go...Lack of affordable housing and long waiting lists for assisted housing mean that many women and their children are forced to choose between abuse at home or life on the streets.”
They chose the streets.
Now a group of students at UCF is banding together to help homeless women in Orlando. Spread the word. Join us today!
