Discover London

London, England is the largest city in the United Kingdom. In fact, about 7.5 million people call this city home, including the Queen and Madonna! Check out the 411 on the city that was once the center of the English-speaking world.

London - Where Is It?

London is the capital city of the United Kingdom, which is an island off the coast of Western Europe. London is in the south-east of England.

London - The History

London has a long and complicated history, which is full of violence, blood shed, royalty and intrigue. The city was founded on a Roman outpost called Londinium. It became an important trade center in 886. Since 1558 (when the first Queen Elizabeth took the throne), London has been the political, cultural and economic center of England.

London - What to Do

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

If you can't see all your fave celebs in the flesh, the next best thing is seeing them in wax! This has been a must-visit stop for any trip to London since it opened in 1835. There are life-like wax figures of infamous criminals, royalty and pop princesses like Britney, Beyonce (who has a shaking booty, no less!) and pop oldies like Michael Jackson and Madonna!

The London Eye

The best way to get a good look at this enormous city is to take a ride on the world's largest observation wheel. The London Eye is like a giant enclosed Ferris wheel that takes you on a half hour ride 450 feet (135 meters) above London! You'll get a bird's eye view, a wild ride and memories to last a lifetime. What more could you ask for?

London Dungeon

When you get tired of London life, you might want to give London death a try. This spooky museum will give you an authentic look at the gruesome and bloody side of English history. Be warned, this isn't your average stuffy museum - some of the exhibits aren't as dead as they appear! If you think you can handle it, the museum lies deep beneath London Bridge station. Good luck.

Free Museums

Most of London's museums have free admission, so why not check 'em all out? You can see fine art at Tate Britain or Tate Modern, big old tanks at the Imperial War Museum or giant dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum. You'll definitely get your money's worth!

(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.
