This is a fan fic I made at ZD a while back and I thought I'd share the first bit of it here at ZE. Enjoy.
I've always thought about a Zelda based around the concept of twins as the main characters. Well... here goes. (P.S. This is my first fan fic!)

Twin Chronicles is rated PG-13 for lots of violence, blood and overall epicness.
NOTICE: Hand-drawn pictures will not be included in my ZE version of Twin Chronicles.
Long ago, a legend was passed down among the generations. The legend spoke of a great hero who always stood tall against whatever evils plagued the land of Hyrule. No matter how treacherous the task, The Hero Chosen by the Gods would stand time and time again to face the great perils of Hyrule. This is but one of those tales...
The fireplace flickered. Sumi was an expectant mother, sitting in her house with her dear husband. Both sat still, eyes fixated on the beautiful flames raging in the fireplace.
"Wife Sumi, I had a thought just now," said Sumi's husband, Corei. "I thought that our child will grow to be like the flames before us. He will be beautiful and strong, he will be a great man."
"Do you think so, Corei?" replied Sumi.
"I know so. Our child will become a a hero, bound for greatness. That is what I foretell."
With these words, Sumi and Corei's child was destined to accomplish great things. The couple could not be happier, staring at each other in the comfort of their dainty home.
Eventually, the day came. The child was born... but as the first emerged, the parents heard a small squeal. A second was coming! Corei looked at Sumi with glittering eyes. Both of their eyes were filled to the brim with excitement, until the pain of childbirth struck the excitement out of Sumi's eyes. Struggling to give birth to the second, her eyes started to roll back. Gasping for air, Sumi was slowly dying.
"No, no! Sumi! Hang in there!" yelled Corei, fear swelling deep in his heart.
"Don't worry... Corei. Our children our blessed. I may not be around to see them grow up, but you... you have the chance to raise them to be who they were meant to be. Please... take care of them..." Sumi's eyes started to close, then her head fell back. Corei's eyes filled with tears, which came strolling down his cheeks. He held his babies close to him.
After Sumi's tragedy, Corei focused all his attention on her last words. All he could think about was raising his children to become heroes. One was named Link, after the great hero passed down in the legends. The other, Poder. The second baby was named Poder because it represents power. As the two toddlers grew, they started to become fine young men. Each was tought how to wield the sword and shield, hoping to become legends like the chosen one told in the stories. Link was clothed in the green tunic, symbolizing that he will become a fine hero, like the original Link. Poder was given a black robe, similar to the kind the King of Evil once wore. This was to symbolize that Poder would become a strong man, destined for power. Each practiced sword techniques from sun up to sun down. It seemed as if both would be destined for greatness.
