Winter Warm Up

When it’s snowing outside you can’t go wrong with some warm winter wear for the people closest to your heart. Gloves, hats and scarves are a great way to combine functional with fun. Almost every major store and lots of independent retailers make a variety of winter accessories in loads of patterns and styles, so it shouldn’t be hard to find scarves, mitts, and hats that are a perfect match for every member of your family.

Parent Pleasers

The winter holidays are a good time to get your parents something to help them relax at home. If your parents are bookworms (or even if they just like a good story), why not get them a best seller that they can curl up by the fire with! Like Steig Larsson’s mystery thriller series The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

If books aren’t their thing, why not try treating your parents to some special bath and shower or shaving kits (for dad!) The Body Shop sells a range of holiday collections that range from $9 to $100 in a variety of some of their most delicious scents, like vanilla bean or citrus fruits.

Sibling Stuff

Not sure what to get for your brother or sister this year? How about something you’ll both enjoy (cause let’s face it, if you’re siblings you’ll be sharing whatever you get them eventually, so you may as well get them something you both like!)You can never go wrong with music, and if you’re not sure about someone’s music taste it’s a good bet to go with one of the most popular pop albums of the year, Selena Gomez’s When the Sun Goes Down. If their taste is a little more off-beat you can always get them a gift card for iTunes.

Selena Gomez's latest album is definitely a people pleaser, it's been topping the charts all yearSelena Gomez's latest album is definitely a people pleaser, it's been topping the charts all year
 

You and your brother/sisters are all home for the holidays, which means lots of hanging out indoors (away from the cold). Why not enjoy the time inside with a family fun movie, like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt.1 or 2 (or both!)

The Life Saver: Socks

Okay, we know it’s cheesy. But if you have to get a gift for someone who isn’t in to movies or music or...anything, there is always socks. Everybody needs ‘em, and everybody secretly wants ‘em. In winter anything fun or funky goes with socks, so get them thick, wooly, patterned with snowflakes, or rainbow toe socks. Just get something to make them smile!

(So, along with being a fanfiction of  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time , this story is an attempt at a [character] x reader thing, with Duana representing the reader. It'll be Sheik x reader, but... well, you'll see how it works in the story. There'll be plenty of action and people-hitting to go 'round during it, and the buildup to the ship will be gradual. I promise that things that happen in parts 1-3 aren't necessarily terrible attempts at showing affection. I'm not sure how long it'll go, but it'll have at least ten parts of varying length. At the moment, I have four parts done, but I'll not be posting twice in a day. Feel free to voice any ideas or opinions through comments/PM! If you don't like it, I'd appreciate  constructive criticism , not a rant. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the story!) Part One A Man and a Lyre [Image courtesy of some random person on the Internet. Taken from Google Images.] Duana’s eyes snapped open. A forest. But her last memory was… of being cut into by a Thief's scimitar and falling… in the desert . Was this death? She grunted; attempted getting up. Failed. The nausea finally registered, and the trees spun about her vision. But she couldn’t go unconscious. The king’s forces could be anywhere. Duana would be easy pickings if she was unconscious and they happened to stumble upon her. A second attempt at rising succeeded, and she tightly gripped a tree, sagging against it as the spinning intensified, and she nearly vomited. Slowly, it faded, and she became alert again. She stood upright, looking around; scanning for signs of movement. Her sharp, red eyes at first saw nothing, then noticed a slight trembling of some undergrowth. Duana tensed, but knew she wouldn’t put up much of a fight--regardless of whether she actually fought or decided to run. Promptly, the swaying increased, and then the bushes parted… and a figure came into sight, heading straight towards Duana… ...with the red eye and tear on the navy blue tunic he wore. His eyes were also red, and his ears were pointed. The symbol was the symbol of Duana’s own race; a people trained in shadow and dedicated to protecting the royal family as well as their country, but who had failed miserably in it. Duana gasped in relief, releasing the tension. “I was so paranoid that you were someone working for Ganondorf….” The young man, a fellow Sheikah, tilted his head and frowned. “Ganondorf? He was exiled two decades ago.” “Wha…?” “Nabooru, Sage of Spirit, is now temporarily serving as the Gerudo queen until the next male is born. How do you not know this?” “I….” He peered at her. “What tribe are you from?” “Kakariko.” For a few seconds, he remained staring silently, his face unreadable. “What is your name? And who is your father?” “Duana. My father is Alechjo.” “Alechjo… he doesn’t have a daughter named Duana.” “What… what tribe are you from, then? What is your name?” He paused, drawing himself from thought. “Sheik, son of Geron, of Kakariko. You seem discombobulated. Are you alright?” Duana smiled. Her lips parted to say something, but another wave of nausea slammed into her. It felt like a punch, and she lurched, but the tree kept her upright. “I’m sure you’re not alright,” Sheik firmly said. As he dug through a pouch on his belt, Duana then noticed the lyre peeking around him, held in place on his back by a leather strap running across his chest in a diagonal line. Some of his blond hair escaped a ponytail a few inches long, hanging around his face as it was bent to see inside the pouch.
