    Between their arrows and needle strikes, Link and Impa had felled the wizzrobe without too much trouble. Whilst she did wish that neither of them had been hit by a magical blast from the monster, at least both of them were all right, and she knew that they would be more than fine to continue their quest. After all, anything that they had contended with today was nothing that a nice rest back at the inn wouldn't solve, or that a bottle or two of Lon Lon milk could not help them heal from. They were certainly getting quite close to the latter.

    Rising back to her full height and leaving her knife unsheathed for the time being, Impa turned to Link, smiling slightly as she nodded to him and Tatl. "Another battle well fought." A moment later, after thinking back on what the fairy had said regarding the wizzrobe, the Sheikah added, "Did you encounter wizzrobes during your adventures in Termina, Link?"

    Once the boy had answered, Impa shifted her gaze to the remaining sun switches, thinking that they must be getting closer with their attempts to proceed through the passage ahead. Hopefully, they would be able to get the right switch soon, but the Sheikah remained on guard in case if another monster or trap appeared.

    "All right, Link… let us try the next one."

    Link put his bow away once the wizzrobe was dead. Their luck had better turn around soon. He heard a distant moo echo from beyond the door ahead of them. Well, not too distant, they had to be close to finding the cows!

    He looked at Impa as she spoke and nodded. "Yeah, I did. They weren't exactly like that one, but they did the same kind of thing, disappearing and using magic." hough he'd never encountered a wizzrobe in Hyrule, he wouldn't say that meant that there weren't any. He had traveled far across the kingdom but he wouldn't doubt that there were still secrets hidden in the land.

    Link followed Impa's gaze to the sun switches. They had only 3 left, surely he could pick the correct one this time.

    "Don't mess up again!" Tatl snapped, but it wasn't like he'd been doing it on purpose, he had no way to know which switches would bring monsters and which would open the door. For all he knew, they could all be false. He hoped not.

    Link stepped into the light beam again and lifted his mirror shield to shine the rays onto yet another sun switch.

    Impa also glanced around at hearing the distant moo from well beyond the door they were seeking to open… regardless of the incredible concealed size and sights that what they had thought was a small underground grotto, it was very nice and reassuring to know that the goal of their quest was still right in front of them. As Link answered her question, Impa smiled and nodded to the boy, right before stating, "Ah, I see. That's very interesting to note about that world."

    After she shifted her gaze to the sun switches and prompted the lad to try again, the Sheikah watched the three remaining switches carefully as Link raised his mirror shield, taking careful aim at the next switch. He caught the light and reflected its beam onto the next sun switch, and after a few moments, the switch lit up and began to slowly rotate its rays. Link had found the right switch, and Impa's neutral expression shifted into a subtle, satisfied smirk as the heavy door began to slide open. Their path was now clear again, and they could continue on their quest.

    "Excellent work, Link,"
    said Impa, turning her smile to him. "Shall we continue?"

    Link almost sighed in relief as the door finally opened. He'd begun to think that none of the switches would work and that they were just there as a trap. Link nodded at Impa's question, and then the two walked side-bys-side as they entered the next room. It was dark and smelled funny. Link looked around, trying to get his eyes to adjust, but that was hard to do with Tatl bobbing beside his head.

    The distinctive and very loud mooing of a cow echoed through the room. They were close, very close. Link took a step ahead of impa and a sudden rumble met his ears, followed a split second later by a loud thud as the door behind them slammed, plunging them into darkness save for Tatl's light. The fairy let out an alarmed ring and shot closer to Link's head. The boy draw his sword, preparing for an ambush.

    Waiting, waiting… patiently waiting… waiting for a possible meal to drop by, or at least one with a far more accessible flavor to it than the milk-filled bovines that were hiding somewhere within the network of caves. Queen Gohma knew that they were here somewhere, but for the life of her she couldn't find them! She could even hear their infernal moos inside of her lair, but if she could hear them, why could she not see them?! It was enough to make her climb the walls! Literally!

    Despite the fact that this was an earthen cave surrounded by rocky caverns, it was a much nicer layout than the woody earthen cave she'd been in previously. It was fresher, more hers, and she'd been able to set up more of the place to her own arachnid liking. Skittering about on the ceiling of her lair, utilizing all of her senses to survey her territory, Gohma soon stopped short… someone had just entered her lair… no, two someones… even better…

    Staying as quiet as she could as she tried to get a better vantage point on her targets, only a very soft rustling could be heard as she worked her way over the web-covered ceiling of her domain. She had to wait for just the right moment…

    As Link, Tatl, and Impa entered the next cave within this expansive network, the Sheikah glanced about, the hair on the back of her neck standing on end as she felt a very ominous presence looming over the room. She did not voice her concern with what this room might hold yet, but she did narrow her gaze, her excellent night vision focusing about the dim light of the chamber. Except for the solid earthen pillars and parts of the walls that held the room so high, most of the room was covered in large webbing. Whilst Impa knew of many creatures capable of making such an intricate lattice, only one felt like the true weaver of these webs. Normally, she would have felt it impossible or at the very least highly improbable for the parasitic armored arachnid to be here… after all, she had been vanquished by Link back in Hyrule. However, she knew far too well that the timestream was not fixed, and it certainly wasn't fixed with regards to whoever got whisked away to the Breach.

    Shortly after Link took a step ahead of her, the door they had just entered fell to the floor with a booming thud, effectively sealing them in the room… at least until they could pass its trial and/or find a way out. The dim light of the room darkened further, and even though Impa could see very well in the dark, she was very grateful for the light emanating from Tatl.

    Her visual read of the room was not the only sensory experience she got… very shortly after the door fell shut and Link drew his sword, Impa was able to hear distinct shuffling coming from the ceiling. It was relatively quiet, but its source was definitely something of substantial size. Drawing her knife, she stopped and took a defensive stance.

    "Link, prepare yourself… I believe we're about to face an old foe…" With that statement, Impa shifted her red gaze upwards, right before she locked it with the large, predominantly yellow eye of Queen Gohma.

    As the trap door slammed down behind them, the spider queen edged closer to her new prey, gazing down at them from the ceiling… oh yes… now this would be very nice. Two sizable morsels for her to take for her own… they were absolutely perfect. And they were actually in plain sight, unlike that infernal pair of cows that she kept hearing but could not locate for the life of her. She skittered across the ceiling to get a better view of them, sizing up her targets before dropping down to the floor.

    One of them seemed far too familiar, like the green fairy child that had dared to venture into her last hiding spot… she had not met him yet, but she knew of him thanks to her larvae that she had sent throughout the tree. Oh well… he would simply have to meet his fate with her here now instead, and that suited Queen Gohma just fine. Now she didn't have to answer to that man from the desert! Freedom AND a meal! Most excellent!

    Before she could lock herself into a sneakier hiding place, the taller of the two Hyruleans glanced up at her, making direct eye contact with her own green and red pupil. Blast! She had been seen! No matter… it simply meant that now she could truly get the drop on them! Rolling her eye back in her head to reset her vision, Queen Gohma dashed across the ceiling, right before dropping down and striking a menacing pose at the two heroes and fairy companion.


    QUEEN GOHMA
    Parasitic Armored Arachnid

    With her dramatic entrance made, Queen Gohma climbed up the nearest pillar in the cave, making her way back to the ceiling so that she could hold a nice altitude advantage over her prey. Up here, there was no way they could reach her!

    Link took an instinctive step back as the familiar monster landed with a thud before them. Queen Gohma had scared him a lot when he had first seen her, but that was mostly because he'd never seen anything like her before. Since then he'd faced numerous monster that were much more intimidating and dangerous, and even though Queen Gohma was nothing to scoff at, she was certainly not the worst thing they could have found in this cave.

    The trick to beating Gohma was easy, at least, in concept. All you had to do was stun her by blinding her, either with a bright flash or a direct hit to her eye. Aiming was another story, but still not something tat concerned the boy too much. The eye was bright in the dark cave, nad make it a good target, even though Gohma was moving a lot. Link whipped out the hookshot and took aim. Although it wasn't as swift as an arrow, with Gohma right in font of them he figured he should save his remaining arrows for later. If she were to act anything like she had in their past fight, he expected she'd be climbing the walls and ceiling to escape their range.

    As Link took his step backwards, Impa took one as well, striking one of her trademark defensive stances as the parasitic armored arachnid dropped down in front of them. Queen Gohma was admittedly more bark than bite, but she was still not a monster to be brushed aside so easily. The Hero of Time had defeated her early in his original quest, but even though he had triumphed over her without issue, neither of them was about to let their guard down.

    As the battle began, both Impa and Link seemed to work in silent tandem once more. They did not have telepathy, but considering their battle prowess and ability to quickly adapt to each others' moves, they might as well have, and that was undoubtedly going to come in handy in this and all future fights.

    Shortly after Queen Gohma climbed back on the ceiling, Link let his hookshot fly right towards her sensitive eye. His aim was true, and the stunned boss soon fell back to the ground, landing on her abdomen as her bright eye swirled about. Not about to let an opportunity such as this pass her by, Impa quickly dashed forward and charged up three shadow blasts, firing them at the mighty queen's exposed weakness.

    "How you'd know it's weakness?" Tatl huffed, irritated that she hadn't had a chance to do her job of telling them said weakness. He better not start thinking he could just go around doing things without her!

    "I've fought Queen Gohma before." Link explained as Impa made her move, and then ran towards the stunned beast, slashing three times at the dazed eye. Although he had fought her before, Queen Gohma seemed to be a lot stronger this time. He knew his sword and his own strength were greater than that of their first battle, but the damage he and Impa had both done didn't seem to be nearly as damaging as he'd expected. The green-clad boy hoped back as the monster stirred, wanted to be out of flailing reach when she regained full consciousness.

    "Do you have any additional information on her, Tatl?" inquired Impa, hoping to help the calm the less than pleased fairy whilst she and Link fought Queen Gohma. She had since learned of the yellow fairy's occasional moodiness, and whilst she certainly had a rich personality, right now was not the time to get up in arms. This went for any of their sakes.

    The monster that Ganondorf had inflicted upon the Great Deku Tree was in fact far stronger than Impa had heard tale of, both from Link as well as from Rauru. The Sheikah sincerely doubted that getting whisked away to the Breach had had the opposite effect on Gohma that it had had on them, but something was certainly at play here. Perhaps this Gohma was from a timeline where Ganondorf had instilled her with even more dark magic, or maybe she had even been drawn from Link's very memories… regardless, she was here now, and they had to defeat her in order to move on

    Catching another opening after Link's sword slash, Impa strafed back as the armored arachnid began to stir, soon unleashing three more charged shadow blasts at Gohma. From such a position, she would have preferred to use her knife, but the Sheikah knew that right now with their foe in such a vulnerable position, it was best to take advantage of a stronger attack.
