The Party by Jonsphantom
Disclaimer: I do not own “The Legend of Zelda” or the song “Last One Standing”. If I did I would be substantially richer than I am now.

Song: “Last One Standing”
Pairing: Link/Zelda
Synopsis: As Link watches Zelda at a party he reflects on his feelings for her.

Author’s note: Reviews are highly appreciated, but seeing as this is my first attempt as a song-fic, please try to keep any criticism constructive. Thank you and enjoy the fic.

I sit here watching.
Watching you,
My princess, my life.
You stand surrounded by your friends.
You stand laughing with them.
They think you’re happy.
Only I know the truth.

Queen of the night
Life of the party
It’s all an illusion


They wonder what happened to him.
They thought you were the perfect couple.
They didn’t see the way he treated you.
I did.

But you can’t hide
That big a heartache
So stop the delusion


They weren’t the ones you ran to for a shoulder to cry on
I was.

Waiting for someone’s rescue
My arms are right her for you


And I always will
No matter what
For better or worse
I’ll be there

Through the wind and rain
Through the laughter and pain
Count on me
And when life isn’t fair
And there’s nobody there
I will be


To comfort you
And to protect you,
No matter the odds.
In that I will not fail.

In a world of pretenders
I am your defender
And when it all comes down
I’ll be the last one standing


Because I love you,
And I have ever since the first time I saw you.
I love you so much it hurts.
It hurts because I can never tell you.
I want to scream it,
But it’s not my place to love a princess

This is for life
Don’t ever doubt it
I’ve already fallen
And love is alive
Stand up and shout it
Destiny’s callin’


I often wonder
Do you feel the same about me?
So many princes have sought your hand,
Only to be turned away
Not all of them were like him
Some were kind. Some were gentle
Were they turned away because they were not me?
Or is that just wishful thinking?

The others that stand behind me
They don’t look nothin’ like me


But that doesn’t matter.
I would protect you all the same.
No matter what
I would pass unfazed through all the forces of evil,
Just to see you smile.
For your smile gives the sun reason to shine.

Through the wind and rain
Through the laughter and pain
Count on me
And when life isn’t fair
And there’s nobody there
I will be
In a world of pretenders
I am your defender
And when it all comes down
I’ll be the last one standing


And so I sit waiting and watching,
Because you need me.
After the party, you’ll come to me
Like you always do
You tell me how you hate these “social gathering,”
And I’ll listen,
Like I always will

Waiting for someone’s rescue
My arms are right her for you


You think you need me,
But it’s I who need you.
You give me reason.
Reason to live
Reason to survive despite all odds

Through the wind and the rain
Through the laughter and pain
Count on me
And when life isn’t fair
And there’s nobody there
I will be
In a world of pretenders
I’ll never surrender
And when it all comes down
Yeah, when it all come down


And so I sit waiting
And watching.
An unwavering sentinel to protect an angel of perfection
Like I always will

I’ll be the last one standing.
