This thread if for posting Loops for The Legend of Zelda series. Here are the Loop mechanics in a general sense. Being lazy, I have copied them directly from the OP of the Misc. loops thread, found here: http://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/miscellaneous-loops.280058. Loop mechanics (general): One person in a Loop, often the main character, is an Anchor. They are the person who first starts time looping. There is always at least one Anchor present in a given Time Loop snippet, though it may not be the local one. The standard pattern for a loop is that the Anchor (and whoever else is Looping there) come to awareness in a loop at a particular point in the story. From there, events will play out as influenced by the Loopers present, acting with the benefit of their foreknowledge, until either a predetermined end point is reached or all the Loopers have copped it. To be Awake is to be aware of the time loops (that is, to have gone back in time this time.) The Anchor is the only character guaranteed to be Awake. Even after others have started looping, it is mostly random as to whether they will be Awake this particular loop. Crossovers, fusions, and alternate pasts can also take place. It is perfectly possible, for example, to have the characters Awaken into a loop which conforms to a fanfic universe rather than reality. Loops do not have to be in chronological order, but it is strongly preferred that they not require a mutually contradictory order (where A must be before B and B must be before A.) Just about every Looper is very, very stir crazy. Specifics for the Legend of Zelda Loops: As of right now, the Anchor is the Triforce, with the Three Triforce Bearers, Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf, being sort of collective Anchors. They gain memories through the Triforce, but one of them dying will not necessarily end the Loop prematurely. There is, for now, only a single incarnation of these three Looping, filling each of the roles that their character has taken during the series. The Loop Admin is Epona, with either Susanoo or Izanagi supervising. They use the three Golden Goddesses as go-betweens with the Loopers. Loops in Hyrule are odd, in the fact that Loops taking place during a previous time period can sometimes show up as the history of a later loop. That is all that I can think of at the moment. Anyone that has something else to add, or if anything up here is wrong, please let me know and I will change it. Please keep these discussions focused on LoZ, and leave other discussions for either their given thread or for the Misc. Loops Thread.
