To start at the beginning of the journey, go here.

 

With the desert behind me, I head back to the Great Plateau to plan my next move. The battle with Calamity Ganon is close, but I want to be as prepared as possible so as not to repeat the mistakes of one-hundred years prior. With this in mind, I decide to embark on one final quest around Hyrule, both revisiting familiar territory and making new discoveries in the “places between places” that I had overlooked the first time around. My mission is ultimately to find every shrine, keep every promise I made, and generally explore as much of the land as I feasibly can.

I had come a long way

The battle was close, but I would be prepared this time

One with lightning

I adore the “ruins in the woods” aesthetic of Faron Woods
2017091717265100-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
It didn’t take long at all to make a new discovery and meet a quirky new character

This was also the time when I went back and activated all the towers I’d skipped

2017092101203600-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
Every corner of the world held memories of past adventures…
2017092223515600-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
…and of the people and creatures that I’d met
2017092504243000-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
This beautiful land of Hyrule…I would fight to protect it

I did end up meeting the Lord of the Mountain again
2017092602062500-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
It was still exciting to explore a new place that I’d passed by before

Kass’s full song was one of the most emotional and gratifying moments in the game

Culmination

There were several spots in Hebra that I hadn’t touched
2017100401190700-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
Discovering there actually WAS a village in Hebra, only in ruins, was a sad moment

Somewhat reminiscent of one of my favorite pieces of A Link to the Past artwork

Paragliding to the lands beyond…
2017101223432500-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
…nah, just kidding; it was worth a shot though
2017101305034000-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
I hadn’t been to Zora’s Domain in a very long time; I was looking for a priest…
2017101422142800-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
Inevitably, my travels took me back to Akkala

2017101506192300-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
There was going to be a ceremony…
2017101522293000-F1C11A22FAEE3B82F21B330E1B786A39
…and so Destiny and I made haste to Tarrey Town

 

In the next chapter, I have a wedding to get to!
