    Tatl didn't know quite what Leaf had been thinking, but she did know how the Spirit of Power would try to look for loopholes in certain situations, this one being no exception. She kept a skeptical eye on him as he responded to her, making sure that he did not try to sneak anything past her, but thankfully, he was soon distracted by his inherent fascination with Impa's strength. A moment later, that gave way to him contemplating heading out to the water with all of them, and the Terminian fairy figured that this was an even better chance to distract him.

    Chiming in agreement with Ciela, she added, "No, we can't. Let's go." Before they could get too far though, Leaf suddenly decided to make a race out of it all, prompting a groan from Tatl. Although she was perfectly content to just let the Spirit of Power blaze on ahead, the Terminian fairy knew that if she and Ciela didn't put in at least some effort, then they would have to contend with either a short bout of whining from him, or a round of him gloating about just how he was so fast that they didn't even try. If this had been back at the inn, Tatl wouldn't have given a second thought… but since this was meant to be a day of fun, she couldn't just let him win THAT easily. With a quick glance to Ciela as Impa began to take off, she chimed, "Let's get him."

    At that, Tatl bolted forward, glancing up as Impa decided to take this sudden race into her own hands. Unable to suppress a snicker at that, she hurried on ahead until she saw the Sheikah land right at the would-be finish line, and just ahead of Leaf. As for the Terminian fairy, she purposely put her brakes on a second later, as she soon careened into the Spirit of Power, bopping him lightly as Impa thanked him for the race. "Heh-heh, there you go, Leaf."

    Back in the water, Link had readily nodded to Sheik at his checking on him. "I am!" It was an angle he'd started to get used to since they'd all been cursed, and it was already coming in extra handy now that they were out at the beach. He knew that his friends didn't mind helping Link or him out whenever their curses shrank them so, but he still really appreciated it. The past several days had been trying, but as today was proving, so long as they were together, they could turn even the most unpredictable events into something positive.

    Laughing a little at Sheik's agreement, Link's ears soon perked up as he caught the race that had just started on shore. Now that looked like fun, as did his nametwin's next idea. "Ha-ha, go for it, Link!" As the disguised prince let the piglet go, the two of them laughter before watching him swim back towards shore unaided. It wasn't quite the same as him swimming as a Hylian, but Link was still doing a great job and was set to hit the shore very soon.

    Link blinked at hearing Neri's whimper, but otherwise kept his sights on the two separate races. His eyes widened at seeing Impa's high leap and winning landing, and it appeared that Link would be running into her very shortly. As for Neri, after Sheik had caught both of the swim rings, he firmly yet gently insisted that the older boy was just fine… Link himself quirked a sympathetic brow and simply nodded in agreement, hoping that this would help settle her mind even more. He could understand where her worries laid, but he also wanted her to be able to relax sooner since they had the whole day ahead of them.

    At seeing Impa pick up the piglet, Link smiled a bit more, inwardly hoping that not only would the two of them join them shortly, but also that Ciela and Tatl would be able to help keep Neri calmed down with even greater efficiency than they'd already managed. After all, this was supposed to be a fun day off for each of them!

    Leaf had been so focused on flying forward and keeping his sight focused the same direction that he completely missed the sight of Impa’s extravagant leap from camp straight to the water. He did however pick up her shadow as she went over him, but thought it was a rather low flying bird above him. It was not until the Sheikah landed right in front of him that he yelped in surprise and, before he could stop himself, barrelled right into her.

    “Huh? Whu-wha?” he managed to gasp as he bounced off the Sage of Shadow, only to be bopped from behind by Tatl, which sent his disoriented glow to, in turn, bop back into Impa.

    Quite unlike the Spirit of Power, Ciela saw it all happen. She had joined the race only a millisecond later than the rest of them and remained a wingbeat behind her Terminian lookalike for the entire course of it. The yellow fairy watched as Impa took a different approach to the race, soon joining Tatl in snickering because she knew Leaf would later be kicking himself for not witnessing it. It was hardly anything they haven’t seen before as their training usually brought about many an impressive feat from each member of their family, but it was still amazing to witness it in such a informal setting.

    Ciela caught up, choosing to slow to a leisurely pace on the last two metres and though she was going nowhere fast enough to warrant bumping into anybody, a moment of fancy struck her and she gently bopped into Tatl before she came to a stop.

    Shaking off the disorientation, Leaf looked up at Impa then back towards where they were only moments ago. “But I said no vanish-- ooooooh! I see. Aww, I missed the epic leap…. Well, plenty more where that comes from, I’m sure.”

    Then there was a piglet approaching from the water. Link snorted a greeting, shaking the water off his back as he finally got to a place shallow enough for his hooves to touch the sand. He was then picked up.

    “Guh,” he grunted in reply, nodding and beaming at the Sheikah. The swim back took longer than he was used to and thus more effort, but it was a good warm up for what could be in store for the rest of their beach day.

    At the mention of cannonball, he nodded and grew even more excited as a new idea popped into his mind. The transformed boy waved his arms, pointed a hoof to sea, then moved his arms together from left to right in a wide arch before he ended with by pretending to curl himself into a ball.

    Had Neri known what Link was planning, it would have sparked a brand new dose of worry. Thankfully, she couldn’t quite make out his actions from where she was suddenly stopped by Sheik. The fairy had made a confused noise as the ring she was tugging along was stopped.

    “Eh?” she sounded as she turned around, and saw Sheik’s hand on the ring. The boy’s words followed and Neri’s wings drooped. “Oh...sorry… I’m doing it again, aren’t I? Worry too much, that is...”

    She shifted uncomfortably in the air, unsure what else to do. “Okay, he’s fine. I’m fine. I’ll try harder not to get the worry get to me as much. It’s suppose to be a fun day after all and I can’t have fun if I worry too much, right?”

    The Spirit of Wisdom looked back to shore, then shook herself roughly. Fun day. FUN DAY!

    Laughing softly as Leaf managed to bump into her before he could fully stop his flight, Impa soon turned around, smiling to the red fairy despite his confusion. As soon as Tatl bopped into him, she found the Spirit of Power gently bumping right back into her before he stabilized his position. He seemed to think that she had in fact performed a Sheikah Vanish, but a quick glance enabled him to figure out just what had happened whilst he had been blazing on ahead. Nodding firmly to him, Impa chuckled a little more at Leaf's words before stating, "There certainly are. That much I can assure you." After all, it was just as much fun as it was good practice for herself, so the Spirit of Power was quite right in his assessment.

    Once she had Link secure in her hands, the Sheikah returned his nod before catching a trace of newfound excitement in his expression. Impa watched the piglet carefully as he began to wave out a new suggestion, and with a knowing smile and slight glint in her eye, she nodded once more to him, noting, "That's a fine idea, and I promise to help you out with one of those soon. However, I've got something else in mind first… something I think you might like."

    At that, Impa turned Link around so that they were both facing the same direction, and as she took a couple of steps backward, she held him a bit more securely against her torso. "All right, Link… are you ready?" As soon as he was, Impa bolted a few strides forward before bending her knees and leaping high into the air once more. The wide arch that the Hero of Winds had requested was being performed by another leap, but instead of flying solo, he was being held close to Impa's form.

    The two soared upward, and at the peak of the parabola, Impa shifted her position so that she was facing downward towards the end of their aerial path. With her head tucked and her right arm aimed forward, she hugged Link a touch closer to herself with her left arm, keeping him safe and steady as the two broke the water's surface together with a flawless dive entry.

    Once they were underwater, Impa let Link go as soon as she felt her own transformation take place, hoping that he was not too disoriented from their splashdown. She caught her own position, kicking a little closer to shore underwater here, underwater here, and only once she knew that the Hero of Winds had surfaced safely did she move to follow his lead. With a distinctive growl trailing into a "BWA!", the Sheikah-turned-panda was now standing a little above chest-height in the calm waves. Glancing to Link with a pleased rumble, Impa nodded to him, hoping that he'd found that idea of hers to be a rather fun one.

    Sheik couldn't help but smile the slightest bit in amusement at the surprised noise Neri made, right before he sighed softly at catching her glance. He had meant to help pull her back to herself, and whilst he was glad that he'd apparently succeeded, he did feel a little bad at seeing her wings start to droop. Looking to the Spirit of Wisdom at her words, his eyebrows shifted in amused sympathy, just before he noted, "Yes, you are." She was already fully aware of where her mind had started to carry her again, so he did not say more than that simple verification. That quick self awareness was definitely going to help Neri out throughout the rest of the day, and Sheik hoped that this moment would be the last major prod she needed.

    Nodding firmly at Neri's voiced reassurance for Link, herself, and determination to focus on the fun day instead of anything else, Sheik soon chuckled as she moved to shake any lingering bad feelings out of herself. "That's exactly right, Neri. We're all fine and we're all going to be just fine – you included. It's already a very fun day, so remember to focus on that, all right?"

    The four Hyruleans had been doing okay and then some since they had first acquired their unexpected curses, and although they probably still had just a little more to get used to regarding them, they had striven to do their absolute best to not let any transformation get the best of them. That was being put to the test today at the beach, and the disguised prince was positive that if they could handle being a boy, rabbit, piglet, and bear for the better part of the day and still enjoy it, then the fairies could also have a fun, relaxing day along with them.

    As he helped make sure that Neri's mind was further settled, Sheik exchanged a happy grin with Link before looking back to Impa to see just what she had in mind for herself and the older Link. A quick exchange later, and his guardian had taken another running leap into the air, soon diving down into the water with the Hero of Winds in tow. The prince grinned even more broadly at watching this, and soon turned around as the two splashed down a few meters behind their position. As Impa transformed and kicked back closer to where he and Link stood, Sheik watched as the two surfaced one after another, soon laughing once more as they appeared above the waves.

    "That was great, Impa! You were both fantastic!" Sheik exclaimed, swimming a little closer to where Impa and Link were. The water was a little deeper here, but both he and Link still had good positions above the surface without having to tread much. Once again, this beach had proven itself to be quite perfect!

    Tatl couldn't help but snicker further as Leaf flew into Impa back, much less when her own bumping into him caused him to barrel right back into the Sheikah once she'd turned around. As Ciela bumped into her glow as well, Tatl chimed and shared an amused glance with her, especially once the Spirit of Power began to voice his confusion. "You said no vanishing, and she didn't vanish." Thankfully though, Leaf figured out what happened without any of them having to explain it, and just as expected, his confusion soon gave way to short-lived disappointment over missing Impa's leap.

    From the look of things though, he was about to feel even better than he already had, as Impa appeared to have an idea to make her entry and Link's return to the water all the more exciting. Instead of assisting the piglet with a new cannonball, Impa took matters into her own hands, backing up before running into another high leap, soon splashing down with Link in tow. With a chime to Ciela and Leaf, Tatl noted, "Come on, let's go make sure Neri stops worrying before she even starts."

    As for Neri's most recent bout of fretting, Link was glad that Sheik's action was able to help her rein herself in quickly. "Ah, yeah…" Link echoed, nodding a little as the prince answered the Spirit of Wisdom's question. A moment later though, instead of either of them having to soothe much more, Neri seemed to take charge in vocally reassuring herself that everyone was fine. "Ha-ha," sounded Link, nodding as the blue fairy noted how it was supposed to be a fun day for all of them. Now that was just what they wanted to hear, and with another vote of confidence from Sheik, it seemed that they might have got Neri right back where she needed to be.

    Just as the Spirit of Wisdom settled down again, it looked like Impa was set to join them in the water as well, right with Link along for the ride. However, instead of simply hitting the waves, the Sheikah appeared to have something different in mind. Taking a few steps back, she sprinted forward before performing a leap that was possibly even more impressive than her first one, with the older Link held securely against her torso. A dive and splashdown behind them later, and Link turned to see Impa's bear form underwater, moving a little closer towards their position.

    Link was the first to surface just after Sheik turned around, and a moment later, the newly transformed Impa had appeared above the calm waves as well. Laughing happily at the disguised prince's exclamation, Link added, "Hey, welcome back, Link! We're glad you're out here now, Impa! That was an amazing jump!" If that didn't solidify that this was meant to be a fun day for all of them, the Hero of Time didn't know what else might!

    Leaf puffed. Like, really puffed. Really, REALLY puffed. There was more awesome Impa-ness promised. The day could not get any better. Actually, it could, but that was only if he was allowed to make a fire as big as a house. Since he could never make a fire as big as a house without his wings being on the receiving end of a heavy hammer or an extra, extra earful from Tatl, Leaf was happy to settle with the next best thing - more Impa-ness. The fairy had long ago accepted that he was a massive fan of the Sheikah and whilst he might not have voiced it in the past, he was certainly not shy to admit now that he would happily be the president of the Impa fanclub if there ever was one.

    Turned out, Impa’s number one fanfairy didn’t have to wait very long to witness a jump similar to one that he had missed. The fairy could not believe his luck as he witnessed Impa bolted forward with Link and with a dramatic WHOOSH (in Leaf’s mind, everything had sound-effects when it was awesome), the Sage of Shadow was up in the air. He whooped loudly and, after Tatl’s chime to himself and Ciela, the Spirit of Power whizzed forward, skimming close to the water surface as he made his way out to sea.

    “Catch me, Link!” shouted Leaf as he barreled toward the pink rabbit. “Or else I’m going to knock you right off Sheik’s shoulder! Mwahaha!”

    Neri wisely darted out of the way to give the red fairy a clear path then she watched as Impa and Link splashed down, whilst she kept reminding herself that Link was with Impa and so, was the most safest little piglet there ever existed. It did not stop her letting out a sigh of relief when the piglet surfaced, and, as if to ease her concern, the transformed Hero of Winds gave a very hearty squeal as he paddled around to face Sheik and Link again.

    The hearty squeal was followed by a dozen other noises as the boy-turned-pig tried to describe how exhilarating the dive was. One moment he was at the beach, asking to be thrown, the next he was told he wasn’t getting thrown and instead he was placed in a secure hold and he and Impa were charging forward. The leap up had taken the breath right out of his lungs, he forgot how to breathe in favour of just gawping down at the sea below.

    The leap was even higher AND further than the flight Sheik had sent him on! In his stunned state, Link barely had time to scrunch his eyes close at the very end of it when they met the water. In fact, had he not felt the Sheikah hug him a bit closer, he would have to come out of his stunned state in a very splashy and unprepared way.

    “I would say that dive scored twelve out of ten, what do you think, Tatl?” said Ciela as she caught up. The Spirit of Courage took a look at the bluest fairy amongst them.

    Neri shuffled awkwardly under her fellow spirit’s gaze, glanced at Sheik then sucked in a brave and confident breath. The blue fairy suddenly splashed down into the water and with a sharp flick of her glow, sent splashes in Ciela and Tatl’s directions. “I'm fine. I’m here to have just as much fun as all of you,” she insisted.

    Bobbing in the water, Link blinked in surprise at his fairy’s actions then beamed proudly.

    Regardless of her own affinity for the force of Power, Impa was always touched by Leaf's outspoken admiration of her, even including his most enthusiastic displays. She appreciated every gesture and word of it, and seeing him puff so visibly here was no exception. She did recognize her own skills and abilities, but although she took some pride in them, she was always careful never to let it go to head. All the same though, any compliments from her charges or the fairies still made her feel rather special.

    Once she and Link had surfaced and the former began swimming a bit closer to Sheik and Link, Impa could not help but rumble in amusement at Link's ecstatic squealing. She'd had a strong feeling that he would have fun joining her with that leap, and to see his visible excitement made her feel especially good. The day was still young and already, it was proving to be an excellent one all around. Bear or not, being out in the water only added to that for the Sheikah, and as the fairies caught up to them, she shook her head to clear it of some of the water before stepping a bit closer to her charges.

    "Grrr," Impa growled, glad to hear just how much Link had enjoyed their dual dive. It had been rather exhilarating, and it was definitely the first of many similar feats to come throughout the day. At catching Ciela and Tatl's assessment of the dive, Impa's round ears perked up a bit just before she smiled as best as her muzzle would allow. With a grateful nod to the two pale yellow fairies, she soon looked followed their gaze to Neri, that slight smile growing once she caught the splash from the Spirit of Wisdom. It might have been a deliberate action in response to the scrutiny she had suddenly found herself under, but it was a genuine one. Even with the lingering worry that she tried to sort out of her system, it appeared that Neri was in fact doing just fine so far, and between the combined company of each of them, they were set to ensure that that lasted.

    With a flick of her paw, Impa sent a gentle splash towards the blue fairy as well, nodding to her with a pleasant "Growf." Just as Neri had noted for herself, they were each here to have fun, and out in the calm waves, that was an even greater guarantee.

    Sheik perked up the instant that Leaf sprinted forward, exchanging a quick grin with Link before the Hero of Time quickly pulled himself up onto his shoulder, just before making his move to catch the Spirit of Power. Laughing happily as he moved the two swim rings to the side for his friends, the disguised prince soon called, "Nice catch, Link!" The red fairy was pretty swift, but he was almost always fun to catch, whether it was something he intended to happen or otherwise.

    Once the older Link had resurfaced and turned back around to them, Sheik's grin grew at his hearty squeal and subsequent elated noises. He might not have understood exactly everything that the Hero of Winds grunted out, but his enthusiasm over his dive with Impa was conveyed perfectly. It had looked like a lot of fun from where he'd been standing in the wave, and it sounded like it had been an even bigger thrill from Link's point-of-view. Nodding along with Impa's growl, the disguised prince noted, "Ha-ha, it sounds like it was even more exciting than it looked! I know it might not be as high or far, but I can still send you on some more flights today if you'd like." Between the lot of them, they were set to have multiple fun dives and trips through the air, especially for the two transformed boys.

    As Neri caught the attention from the Spirit of Courage, Sheik watched curiously as she shifted in the air, just before moving to send a pair of splashes towards Ciela and Tatl. That coupled with her own assurance made him smile brightly, just before he laughed at seeing Impa's good-spirited splash towards the Spirit of Wisdom. Moving to gently catch the blue fairy in his hands, Sheik stated, "I think she got you, just like I have now!" Now that Neri had started this playful exchange, the girl-turned-boy had an even better feeling that she was definitely going to focus more on having fun. If she could get caught up in more of the entertaining distractions in the waves, then she would be even more set to relax than she already was.

    Glancing to the fairies, Sheik winked before asking, "Does anyone want to see if they can get the two of us with a splash?"

    "Huh?!" Link had already seen Leaf whizzing forward, but he had not expected for him to make a call to be caught. He was hanging off of Sheik's shoulder, yes, but he was resting on it with his abdomen! He wasn't in a good position to catch him! Still, a challenge was a challenge, and he was set to face it. With a quick glance and grin to Sheik, Link pulled himself up, making sure to catch his balance on his hind legs. Narrowing his blue eyes slightly, Link sprang forward just as the Spirit of Power was upon him, catching him safely in his paws just before the two cannonballed into the water.

    Surfacing with a "Bwa!", Link continued to hold onto the red fairy as best he could, right before laughing at Sheik's exclamation. "Thanks! Ha-ha, I hope you didn't mind our splash, Leaf." It might not have been as high or impressive as Link's and Impa's already, but it had still been fun. Treading slightly from where he was in the water now, Link soon looked over to his nametwin as he began to squeal and snort excitedly, doing a fine job of relaying just how fun his dive with Impa had been. Chuckling and nodding eagerly to the older boy, Link noted, "I can tell it was fun! Maybe you and I can make one of the next jumps together!" They had looked for advantages to their cursed forms even since shortly after they had acquired them, and being able to perform such feats was just one of them.

    At Ciela's assessment of the dive that Impa had just performed, Tatl simply chimed, noting, "Yeah, I'd say so." After all, it was a dive that would have done a Zora proud, and the extra passenger only added to it. Now that all four of the Hyruleans were set in the water, the Terminian fairy had a strong feeling that Neri would have even less room to worry, and the look that the blue fairy soon caught from the Spirit of Courage seemed to have just that in mind. The Spirit of Wisdom did not sit under the scrutiny for long though, as a couple of moments later, she moved to splash both her and Ciela. Shaking the water off of herself amidst a few chimes, Tatl smirked at Neri's insistence. "You're darn right you are."

    Before either she or Ciela could return the splash in kind though, Impa met her with one, eliciting an amused chime from Tatl and a bark of laughter from Link. That led to Neri being caught by Sheik, and the disguised prince issuing a challenge of additional splashes. As Tatl decided to choose her own target first, Link exchanged an eager expression with his nametwin before looking to that red fairy still in his paws. Whispering very carefully to him, he noted, "Maybe we could surprise Neri with a hot water splash to any of the four of us. It wouldn't last too long out here, but it could be fun!"

    “And the red fairy zooms in! And he’s caught! Who was he caught by? Oh goddesses, it’s Li-- wait what?” Leaf’s narration was cut short abruptly as rather than just catching him as he had expected, the rabbit was throwing a dive of his own in and that the fairy was not expecting at all. There was a rush of water and Leaf was underwater with wet paws holding onto his glow as the sudden coolness of the water made the fairy almost pulse a bit of fire magic into their surroundings on reflex to stay warm.

    The Spirit of Power fluttered his wings into a buzz, almost like a distressed insect, but he was very far from being distressed. Once his wings were dry from the action, he looked up at the rabbit Link and flapped his wings in his usual excited rhythm once more. “Mind it? I don’t mind it at all. I say keep the surprises coming.”

    And that was a notion, Link agreed with fully. The piglet nodded enthusiastically at the idea of going for fly through the air together with the other Link. Whilst he still had some grumblings about being small, this was certainly one of the highlights of being this size.

    Ciela gave a gasp at suddenly being splashed, then much like her fairy-colour-twin, she shook off the droplets with an amused chuckle. In turn, Neri was splashed by Impa, making her burst into giggles as the splash made her stagger back in the air reflexively. The giggling stopped for a moment as she felt hands around her wings again, soon realising that she was being held by Zelda again. The princess then issued a challenge to the rest of their group. What had Neri started? Actually, don’t answer that. Neri started having fun, that was what she started.

    In Hero of Time’s paws, Leaf perked up one wing at the rabbit’s suggestion before rumbling in barely contained laughter. “Hohoho, I like that plan there. It would be a challenge for myself too, since the water moves around here. But if we do it quickly, I should be able to do it.” He wriggled from the rabbit’s paws and plopped into the water with a ‘gloop’ noise. Once under water, he glowed a little brighter as he warmed up the patch of water directly in front of the younger Link. Ready when you are, my boy!

    The older Link’s eyes instantly lit up in determination and he looked at his nametwin just as eagerly as the other Link did. A challenge was a challenge! And he was ready for all challenges. Even if he was smaller now and his limbs and hooves were hardly flexible nor long enough to send any big waves, he would still try his best. And try his best he did. He flailed his arms on the water surface - much like an angry baby would - in Zelda’s direction, instead of making one solid splash, he sent many mini waves of water droplets at the princess and Spirit of Wisdom.

    Impa was glad that Neri was amused to the point of giggling by the splash to her, just before she in turn found it even more amusing that the Spirit of Wisdom had been caught by Sheik. The blue fairy might have already been on the proper path to relaxation and having fun, and now she appeared to be even better set on that. The catch from the disguised prince soon gave way to a playful challenge, one which the Sheikah could not help but growl softly at. She might not have held splashing in quite the same regard that her four charges did, but especially with her position as their guardian, Impa knew that good splashes were just another part of good, aquatic fun. She herself was capable of delivering good ones in either form, and if such a simple action could add to her charges' fun today, then she was more than set to oblige.

    As it was, around Link catching Leaf in midair, the older Link appeared set to tackle the issued challenge first. Even with his smaller stature, his enthusiasm was more than enough to make up for a lack of larger waves to be sent forth. Now that he as set to add to the splashing himself, he flailed readily to meet both the disguised prince and Neri with a barrage of miniature waves.

    Link's effort might have only caught Sheik and Neri with a few droplets of water, but the lighthearted action carried an even greater significance than it did any amount of water. Stepping up just beside the Hero of Winds, Impa rumbled to him before taking a ready stance. With her paws facing forward, the panda returned Sheik's earlier wink before suddenly forcing her arms into the surface of the water. A mighty and well-aimed push soon caused a sizable wave to rush towards the disguised prince and Spirit of Wisdom, hopefully adding yet another hefty dose of fun onto their grand time out today.

    As the number of good-spirited splashes increased, Impa's mind was taken back not only to previous beach visits, but also to some of her first times taking Zelda to Lake Hylia. She had helped her with some of the same, large waves of water then as she was today, and whether any magic came into play or not, the Sheikah was just glad that her charges were enjoying themselves so thoroughly.

    Sheik was happy that Link liked the idea of dual trips through the air with Link, no matter how either of them happened to get up there, and that amusement only grew once he caught the giggling Neri in his hands. Thankfully, the Spirit of Wisdom's surprise was momentary, and she still seemed posited to have even more fun here.

    As Link and Leaf seemed to be figuring out their own response to the issued challenge, the Hero of Winds went from exchanging an eager look with the Hero of Time to eyeing the disguised prince with playful determination. No sooner had he caught his position at the surface of the water than did he send a flailing barrage of small splashes towards Sheik and Neri. The rapid thrashing of his hooves might not have caught them with a big wave, but it did send a nice amount of water right for them. Grinning broadly, Sheik sidestepped the majority of the splashes, soon finding himself and Neri met with a few of the droplets, just before he laughed heartily. "Ha-ha, nice one!" Link might have been working with a smaller frame with shorter limbs, but the splashes were still right there and they were just as fun to engage.

    No sooner had Sheik shaken his head slightly to move his bangs from obscuring more of his face than did he find Impa right next to the older Link. He raised his eyebrows as he saw his guardian take a familiar stance, right before she returned his wink. The disguised prince's face lit up, just before he found both Neri and himself at the mercy of a very sizable wave from Impa. "Aaah!"

    *SPLASH!*

    As the impressive splash completely engulfed both of them, Sheik soon broke through the wave with a "Bwa!" With the Spirit of Wisdom in his hands, he couldn't help but laugh even more, noting, "Ha-ha, that was great, Impa!" Bear or Sheikah, she always had a knack for mighty splashes, and even with their changed forms today, they were still just as fun to be met with!

    Link couldn't help but laugh at catching Leaf's narration, right before he caught the red fairy and the two of them splashed down into the water just in front of Sheik. He definitely felt the sudden warmth that the water around them took on once they were submerged, but it wasn't hot enough to make him transform back to his true form. Still, the idea of even some isolated fire magic in the water here was definitely intriguing and presented all sorts of possibilities.

    As Link and Leaf surfaced, the rabbit chuckled happily at the fairy's assurance that he didn't mind the sudden cannonball at all. The excited fluttering of his wings only added to that, and as far as surprises went, he figured that with their family, they could certainly oblige with that request. "Ha-ha, you got it!" One of the next up would definitely have to be both of the transformed boys going through the air together!

    For now though, the main action seemed to be coming from the form of random splashes, and at seeing just how much fun the Spirit of Wisdom had started having, Tatl couldn't help but chime in amusement. Both the barrage of mini splashes from Link and the impressive splash courtesy of Impa met Neri and Sheik head on, and regardless of their curses having been activated, this looked to be one of their more interesting splash flights yet.

    It appeared that Link's suggestion had been a grand one to the Spirit of Power, and no sooner had he mused about the challenge it would present than had he flown out of his grip and dropped himself right into the water. Link's eyes widened slightly as he saw the fairy brighten up a bit beneath the calm waves, and just like that, their idea was set.With a grin to himself, Link adjusted his position and got situated on his back. Much like his nametwin, his cursed form did bestow him with shorter limbs that he couldn't always use with the same strength or reach as his own arms, and his front paws did not provide too much of an advantage over Link's hooves. His hind paws however were a different story.

    Once he was set on his back, Link readied as powerful a kick as he could muster, and with the older Link in his sights, he kicked the water in front of the heated patch with all of his might. Hopefully that momentum would be enough to send the hot water towards the older boy, and more than that, hopefully he wouldn't mind this temporary surprise!

    From a combination of his lower angle and the amount of water flying through the air because of his actions, the transformed Hero of Winds cannot tell how much of his splashes had hit the Wisdom pair. What he did know was that an awful lot of it hit himself, and he had to squint so as not to get too much droplets hit his eyes. So much that once he stopped flailing, Link shook his ears and head from side to side to flick the excess water off before he looked up at the panda who had took a step to stand beside him in the water.

    He made a snuffling noise in reply to her rumble, then gently paddled aside a little as he caught the idea brewing in the bear's mind. He didn't want to be swept up by one of Impa's mighty waves of water, even though it might be pretty cool if he did catch one later, it's not so cool if he could potentially crash into Sheik as the splash hit them.

    Neri yelped as the water hit her and Sheik, her wings beat furiously as she tried to stay upright and not roll over from the force. At least she did not have to worry about be swept away as Sheik’s hands remained enveloped around her despite the strength and suddenness of the splash. As the water drained through the youth’s fingers, Neri shook the water off her glow and wings.

    “Keep them coming,” she challenged then raised one wing and looked up at Sheik. “We’ll dodge the next one, right?”

    Link gave a few snorts of laughter, which soon turned into surprised sputtering.

    “Hwa?!” gasped the boy as he felt warm water wash over him and he no longer needed to paddle quite as furiously to stay in one spot. “Huh? Ha?”

    He blinked, looked down at his hands, then immediately moved to check his shorts were still on. They may have had the curse for a while now, and their minds put to ease in knowing their clothing remained with them even while transformed, but it was still taking a bit for him to stop the reflexive clothing check.

    Comforted once more to know that his shorts were indeed on him, he looked up in the direction of the younger Link. “Hooooh,” he sounded. Clever Link and Leaf, clever. Then his face turned into a large grin as he figured he may as well quickly take advantage of his Hylian form while he can.

    “Ha!” he cheered as he shoved his hands forward and pushed a wave of water at the rabbit. Then, with a quick sweep of his hands to one side, he sent another one over at Impa just before he gave a startled gasp as he turned back into a piglet and the seabed fell away from his feet.
