TMC - FS/FSA - LoZ/AoL - OoT/Child/MM - TP - LttP/LA - Oracles
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - /Adult - WW/PH - ST
Some explanation (attempting to go in chronological order here...):
First, of course, Hyrule is created... blah, blah. After Hyrule was created, I have the backstory of the Twili and the backstory of AoL. The King of Hyrule ruled with the Triforce, but then split up, Zelda is put to sleep. Then the "Hero of Men" story, which if you want you can consider the "Light Force" part of the Triforce (either Power or Wisdom) being brought by the Minish back to the Princess of Hyrule. (it's ambiguous in the AoL backstory to me how much of the Triforce was inherited/where all the pieces are other than Courage) TMC happens, Four Sword is created... FS's backstory happens sometime later, and then the events of FS/FSA. The first Ganon/Ganondorf is created during this time and then sealed inside the Four Sword. (The Dark World and Dark Mirror could be the same as the Twilight, but it doesn't matter to me either way) Some time passes and Ganon is able to escape from the Four Sword. (we've seen this seal weaken before) The events of LoZ/AoL happen. After the Triforce is reunited, the Master Sword is created to protect it as a key to close off the Sacred Realm. Split in the timeline with OoT, and birth of new Ganondorf. The Adult timeline is pretty self explanatory and confirmed. In the child timeline, MM happens. Ganondorf at some point is captured and sealed in the Twilight Realm. The events of TP happen, and Ganon is killed once again. A new Ganondorf is reborn and the events of the Imprisoning War happen, leading up to the events of LttP/LA. You can throw in Ancient Stone Tablet (BS Zelda) in there too, if it suits you. Ganon is once again dead, and Triforce safe. Then the Oracles happen, Ganon is revived and killed again.
Let me know what you think. I am going with broader story strokes to build this timeline I guess, and not getting into the more nitpicky stuff like geography, etc...
