Previously

Navarra, member of the Zora tribe of the Zorca found an old spear in the waters and met a fairy who told her the tale of the Four Season Isles. Navarra followed the call to restore the Great Fairy. After she met Pengrito, one of the Champions of Old, the attack of the Rot Fairy began. Navarra defeated her but Spring Island, again rising form the depths of the ocean, swept her away.

Back to Chapter 1

Day 10 „Wet Hut“

Little experience Navarra had that in the cours of gods and fairies Humans and Zoras and all the other folks were mere bystanders, figures at most, useful to their own purposes. So, Spring Island rose but Navarra and Epzora were on the wrong spot. As the island emerged from the sea, a huge wave arouse likewise, washing them away onto yet unknown shores.

Day 11 „OC’s Summer Outfit“

The challenge allows to swap the OC champion with the one of another participant with the change in seasonal theme. We both wanted to keep our OCs but Potato_Beta and me agreed on cameos of our characters:

But not without the Spring Fairy sending her a last gift. Navarra felt stronger than ever before and she too had the feeling as if Pengrito never left her. So she began to wander the village that’s shores she has been washed at. The island was warm and sunny and full with green plants and palm trees. To be honest, to a creature accustomated to the cool waters of the Zorca domain, it was too warm and too sunny. Though being able to walk on land, Epzora preferred to stay in the water. So, Navarra started looking for some protection. She found a shop under the open sky. There already was another customer around, tanned like the other Hylians of the village, still somewhat strange but – she had to admit – handsome looking (for a Human). He seemed to have never seen a Zora from the Zorca tribe or a Zora at all before, though, and Navarra’s grin, showing her orca’s predator’s teeth, may not have helped to build trust in her kind.

Finally, she found a quite silly but handy hat and even a potion to block the sun off her skin (the shopkeeper promised!).

.

Day 12 „Heat Creature“

This way protected against the hot sun she continued to wander the island, a little bit lost, though. She didn’t know where to go or what she was looking for. The island seemed to be peaceful enough, no monsters around, no actual dread. Even Cheio seemed not to know their next goal. So, musing and more careless with every step, she walked further away from the shores, through forests and grassland until she saw an odd creature in the middle of a meadow.

.

Day 13 „Octorok Event“

The flamelet looked sad, like if it had experienced a big loss. But what a loss could a flamelet have experienced? Carefully, Navarra got closer. The flamelet didn’t seem to be dangeours, it appeared to be friendly though in deep, deep grief. She already felt the warmth coming from it as she saw the movements in the grass. The flamelet cowered frightened to the ground but Navarra got caught off guard.

This moment, she felt a strange sensation of slowness around her. No, it was the sensation of her own increased speed. She thought to hear Pengrito’s voice and a green shimmer in the air but this also could be an illusion.

Day 14 „Summer Zelda“

Pengrito’s Haste didn’t last long – but long enough. It was her gift she gave Navarra to help her on her way. Navarra barely got injured. In fact, the octoroks injured each other as she dodged their flying stones. However, as soon as Flamelet and she got away, she felt exhausted, she didn’t have the energy to do this again soon. Flamelet on the other hand was full of energy again. It led her further across the meadow. They passed an old statue – „The Praying Princess“, the sign told her – and Navarra actually would’ve like to take a rest in its shadow but Flamelet still seemed to be excited, as if it wanted to show her something.

.

Day 15 „Traveling Champion“

So, Navarra followed it further along its track. In fact, she reached the other side of the island. She felt, she smelled, the saw the sea was right ahead again. Flamelet approached in a speed that it got out of Navarra’s sight. As she arrived at the beach she saw the young woman, petting Flamelet as if it wasn’t made of fire. Then Navarra saw the shipwreck and only on the third view she realized that it was the ghost of a young woman – another Champion of Old: Penta, „The Champion who knew the course“.

Before they could change more than a few words, a movement in the shipwreck got Navarra’s attention …

.

.

Day 16 „Fishy / Fishing Fairy“

„That’s the curse of Summer Island!“, Penta let her know.
„I can’t help you – but Flamelet can!“
Whatever the meaning of these words, Navarra’s eyes caught a sight every water living creature dreaded from the moment the first people swung a sharp, bended object into a pond: A giant hook, lifted by a string, emerged from the shipwreck, crushing the bits it didn’t in the past already, and from the sky a big fairy floated downwards, holding the fishing rod.
Navarra didn’t know what would happen next but she was sure no good would come from this. Still she barely dodged the hook as the Fishing Fairy swung it through the air. The Fairy was too high above the ground to pinch her with the spear and the sprouts of the seed weapon simply were crushed away. Pengrito’s Haste wasn’t ready again, too. So, the first part of the fight consisted of her running and jumping to avoid the fierce hook.

The idea which saved the day struck her as she saw how the hook went right through Penta without hurting her ghostly body. She wasn’t able to touch Flamelet but her spear was. They just had to pass the perfect moment and Flamelet found its way on the fishing line, snapping it, slingshotting the hook into the ocean.

The Fishing Fairy still was dangerous, now throwing smaller hooks Navarra had to strike back with her now fiery spear to not get pierced by them, Flamelet sending some extra greetings with them. In the end, not without a last scream of fury, the Fishing Fairy dropped into the wreckage she did in the first place – and from her dead body the Summer Fairy grew anew…
