Black Wind

I don't think a lot of people particularly awaited the release of Wind Waker, seeming as it had cartoon-like graphics. I did. I didn't care about the graphics, if it was a Zelda game, I was going to get it. I wasn't able to buy Wind Waker as soon as it came out due to monetary issues. I would walk by the game in stores over and over and drool on myself for it.

I was driving home from work at Walmart, and I noticed a few yard sales, I didn't stop at any of them, just gawked at them as I drove by, like most people do. I saw the dark and creepy house that I drove by twice daily. I never liked that house. It had spray-painted black windows, and the outside paneling was a faded white color. The house was an old two-story house, one of those that if it was refurbished, it could have been a sight to see.

There was only one table in the front lawn, with only one item on it, and a sign that hung on the table said: "Take what you want". I don't know why I pulled over and walked up to the table for, but once I set my eyes on the item, I had happy butterflies in my stomach. There, on that table, was a retangular item with ducktape on it, and it said: Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker in black sharpie across the tape. I ran to my car and pulled out of the drive way and continued my drive home. I probably should have known better than to take that game.

I got home, parked in a hurry, and ran inside, turning on my TV, and my Gamecube. I struggled with getting the tape off the game case, but once I did, I could behold the glory of the casing, just like those at Walmart I'd seen countless times. I opened the case, and it surprised me that the disk was only a black disk, no title, nothing on it. There was a memory card in the card holder, too. I slid the game and memory card into my Gamecube, and the title screen came up.

You could see immediatly this was not the correct Wind Waker opening, even though I never played it before. The sky was pitch black with nothing dotting the black wall. When the animation went down you could see the sea was a sickening red color, just like blood. Where it supposed to say 'Wind Waker' it said 'Black Wind'

Needless-to-say, I hit start as fast as humanly possible, and there was one other save file called "Evra". I erased it so that I could have the File 1 save slot, and I started my adventure naming Link Usagi. I usually kept Link's name, but this time I didn't. The little beginning story popped up, and I read it with excitement, temporarily forgetting the weird title screen. When the story was over, and the animation to take you around Outset Island came up, it definitely wasn't normal.

The sea was red just like in the beginning, the terrain was just red dirt, and burnt-down houses, there was no bridge, no pigs, no crabs, no nothing. No one was there, and there wasn't even the canoes on the shore. When the game moved to your grandma's house, all you could see apart from the ruins, was an arm that was barely visible underneith all the rubble.

The game immediately switched from that island to Windfall, where, I persume, our hero had escaped to by a canoe, since there was one floating a few feet off the shores of the island in the red sea. I could freely control Link around, and this town seemed undamaged from my point on the docks, but the music was not that of Windfalls, but it was a creepy tune.

I ran into the bomb shop that sat on the upraised part of Windfall overlooking a cliff, inside was an open coffin, and when I walked up to it and looked in it, I immediatly wished I hadn't. It was Medli, her eyes were open, but all that there was was two empty eye sockets, and dried up tear stains that had run down her cheeks from when she was still alive and had eyes. Her beak was bent and broken, and her body was torn and bloody.

I ran out of there, feeling sick to my stomach, and ran to where the grave was supposed to be where the Elvis-impersonator was supposed to be dancing. There was no grave or Elvis-like person. Just the Killer Bees. As you got closer, you could see that one was missing and they were standing over something. They were standing over their dead leader, who had a huge chunk of his stomach missing, and his blood was soaking into the other's clothes, as they had blood stains all over them. I ran out to that cove where the King of Red Lions was supposed to be, and found only the old man that would chase you and try to tell you of his missing daughter.

When spoken to, all he said was:

You better run... run... run... HE'll get you... Evra will...

I tried to head his warning, but to no advail, there was no way off this island. After a few more minutes of wildly running around, and trying to ignore dead bodies and people without eyes constantly trying to stare at you, the game seemed to freeze and went to a black screen.

Before I had the chance to push the power button on the Gamecube, a screen popped up, and you were at the Forsaken Fortress, with huge gusts of wind blowing everything around. The enemies would go flying out into the blood red sea. The wind wasn't shown with the normal white curly lines, but with black lines, and a huge cyclone started to head towards the fortress.

I ran into the interior of the fort, and to my intense dismay, there was a person hanging from the cealing, with stab wounds that were steadily dripping blood on the floor. The person was not one that should have ever been in the game. It was a white man, with only pants on, he had longish black hair. The stab wounds on his chest said 'Evra'. and the man who I had presumed was dead, opened his eyes, and the rope holding him to the ceiling snapped.

Link bounced and landed on the floor, trying to recover from falling, the man advanced apon my character, and I was unable to control Link, who just watched as the man walked to him.

The man I persumed to be the 'Evra' the man had talked about, drew out a knife, and the animation cut off to black, and an ear-splitting scream came from the TV. I turned the game off, and I threw the game into a garbage can, and set wood into the can, and set it on fire. I will never forget this hacked and twisted version of Wind Waker.

  8. How would you know Medli, Tott (Elvis guy), the Killer Bees, or any of Outset's details if you hadn't played it before?

    Overall, crappy pasta. 3/10 just cuz it's about Wind Waker.

  9. There's just too many of the Zelda stories. It's getting so boring that I spent this entire story thinking, 'Yeah right, the Gamecube can't have graphics that detailed.'

  10. Anon, Resident Evil 4 was originally for the GC and superior to the PS2 and PC versions and your saying that the GC can't have graphics that detailed? pfft... anyways... the story was alright. 7/10

  20. Really? You could try not to copy the EXACT same beginning of Jadusable's story. C'mon. Have some creativity.

  21. Lesson learned: Don't buy any Zelda games from random garage sales.

  22. i'll give you a 2/10 instead of a 1/10 because the title "black wind" is awesome.

    1. She did say that a card came with it. "I opened the case, and it surprised me that the disk was only a black disk, no title, nothing on it. There was a memory card in the card holder, too." I don't see how you all missed that...

  25. Found nothing interesting, it was based on a save file like Majora's ben drowned, and its always:blood,dead bodies,eyeless,wounds,and etc. 2/10

  26. Stop Trolling, Everyone. You do notice that this could easily be true, That It's not impossible to hack a Game Cube game, right? It's possible to know a lot about the game through reviews, previews, and pictures. Plus, I agree with Inunah, these stories are great.

  27. It was worth a shot and I liked thus story a little but with so many flaws it was bad. I like your other stories. Nice try, if you gave this story a few days work patched up the flaws and edited it, this could really be a good story. 7/10 nice try it's hard to redo an original.

  28. I thought the story was pretty decent, i mean it was really similar to Jadusable's Majora story but i don't really mind, there were definately some flaws to the story but overall it was interesting, so i would give this a 6/10. but i still wouldn't call this a bad story

  29. This honestly scared the living crap out of me. Good job.

  30. Very clichéd, spooky game gotten from a spooky garage sale. Plus, how did you know who Medli was, who the Killer Bees were, where the King of Red Lions was supposed to be, and what Windfall Island's music is supposed to be if you had never played the game beforehand? You never mentioned any walkthroughs, so that explanation won't work. 4/10
