SFW: Nice Day for a White Wedding

It's somewhat rare to find works depicting families and even harder to find marriages and weddings in the fantasy genre so I'm more than happy to share when I do

Look at the conehead back there and how the groom's sister looks just as let down as she is unsurprised  with the women her brother chose to wed. 

This is also another instance of Japanese love of the dark skin/light hair color scheme.

SFW: Nintendo's Official Legend of Zelda Time Line

While some of the games are direct sequels like Ocarina of Time & Majora's Mask or Zelda & Adventure of Link for the most part the story lines in the series are pretty much the same core origin story of Link saving Zelda form Ganon told over and over with various differences in the details. This gave the series as a whole the feeling of having 1 "true" root story that has been retold and interpreted by a wide variety of cultures form various periods enough times for the real history of Zelda to become a "Legend". However there are plenty of details, characters, & locations that have a "chronology" to them even when the games themselves don't have any definite chronology with each other. this has lead fans to ask for a definitive time line or explanation of the nature of the Zelda games which both Nintendo and Shigeru Miyamoto have been evasive about.     
Now, after years of speculation and wild theories Nintendo has finally created an official set timeline for the Zelda franchise. Eiji Aonuma who has helped produce almost all of the newer Zelda tiles co-edited the publication of the book "Hyrule Histroia" which this chart comes form.

The diverging paths due to Zelda & Link's time shenanigans in OoT makes sense and has been a fan theory for a while;

Whoever made this got it spot on.

but what's up with that whole "The Hero is Defeated" path? Is this what happens if you get a game over and if so then why don't the rest of the games have a failed end? Or is there some 3rd secret end to Ocarina that I don't know about, like one in some Japan only magazine? 

Despite the oddness of an extra path I am glad Nintendo finally did this. 

SFW: Arctic Elf on the Frozen Throne

World of Warcraft fan art of an elf women sitting atop the frozen throne. Tiny icicles hang form her ears, breast plates, and pauldrons with an ice stalagmite creeping it's way up her bare feet yet it doesn't hurt her in the least for she is at home in the cold unforgiving Arctic wastes of the far north.

SFW: Maplestory Brown Winter Fairy

A winter fairy cuddling with a group of tribble yetti 1st level Didgimon things. Nice touch with the light snow effects layered here and there.
Again with the black girl having blue eyes and white hair.

SFW: Christmas in Hyrule by nicochi

There's so much wrong with this picture from peeping Ganon to Tingle's bulge, yet it's all so right!
Excuse me Princess to all, and to all a pair of green fairy tights!

SFW: Happy Holidays by Woodland-Mel

The lipstick mark on Link's cheek coupled with the way he's smooshing up Zelda's cheek in his loving embrace is just so darn cute! With this loving picture I bit you a Merry Christmas. 
Happy Holidays

SFW: Alleyne's Christmas Toy by mizunezumi

I believe this is the 1st appearance of Alleyne form Queen's Blade on here. Take of the Nendoroid of her apprentice and girl ward Nowa she received for Christmas.

NSFW: Yuletide Yuri by s zenith lee

Lesbianism is one of the only things that could keep these two from catching hypothermia on a cold winter night. Coats would also work but wouldn't be as passionate. Do you think if that scepter is metal they run the risk of it freezing to the readhead's pussy if they try to use it as a dildo?

NSFW: Baring It All by Psyprass

It looks like Link decided to take Andy Samberg & Justin Timberlake's advice on holiday gift giving this year. 
Why Zelda's so shocked I don't know, she deserves a sexy naked guy every once and a while for all the grief she have to put up with.

SFW: Santa's Little Helper by simosi

A helper elf takes Christmas eve flight over a small European city.

SFW: -Merry Christmas- by Annausagi

I feel that this picture captures the feeling of Christmas Eve perfectly. The ambient lighting of the moon and stars on the fresh white snow. The feeling of calm and piece that's especially welcome after the load of work leading up to Christmas. And how even late at night in wintertime it doesn't feel all that cold. kind of a cozy cold I guess. 
I hope we see those Scotty dogs in the Zelda games again soon.

Merry Christmas

SFW: Wind Waker X-Mas

I have no idea of who did this since a google image search only turns up the piece on porno sites with no artist or title at all :/ As far as I can tell there's 6 characters in this; Link, Zelda/Tetra, Medli, a basic fairy, & Tingle. The picture is so busy that it took me a while of staring to realize that's a stain glass window of Zelda in the background.

SFW: Link and Princess Midna by Sui Yameshima

That balding head with the crazy stick up hairs that's poking out of the top of the heart is kinda creeping me out. I think that might explain Midna's unsettled expression. 
Link and Princess Midna

SFW: Christmas Neo Steam by alien1452

that's one monster of a present.

SFW: Merry Christmas...present by Annausagi

Is it a heartfelt gift of Navi shutting up, or a curse of having to let her tag along again? We can't trust you Happy Mask Salesmen.

Merry Christmas....Present

SFW: Joyous Greetings by ryuuzaki itsu

Being sexy and half naked must be super difficult in wintertime but at least she has heavy mittens. And ladies if any of you are reading the sexy snow suit is much appreciated but please dress warmly so you don't catch cold, there'll be plenty of time for you to be in a state of undress so long as you're not sick.

SFW: Snow Fairy

I can't confirm the artist but it's seems that it's an original work not associated with any established franchise. Here's where I tracked it down.

NSFW: Human Child and Her Near-naked Guardian

This particular elf is naughty and likes to run about with her bits and pieces out. Her ward is too young to notice her body guard's exhibitionism.

SFW: Merisiel by Wayne Reynolds

"The elves have a name for elven children unfortunate enough to be born and raised in human society—the Forlorn. In a few rare cases, these foundlings or orphaned elves find loving homes with humans, although the fact that, over the course of their childhood, one-time playmates become their effective guardians and foster parents results in a strangely skewed sense of the self. Most Forlorn aren't as fortunate—they live on the streets as almost eternal urchins, watching alone as their companions age and move on to greater things. 
Merisiel is one of the Forlorn, only now emerging from decades spent as a child of the streets into a young adult ready to make her own way in life. A master at stowing away on ships, she's called dozens of cities home, leaving one for another when her companions outgrew her or she outlived them. Life has been hard for Merisiel, made more so by the fact that she's always found it difficult to master skills that come easily to her companions. Never the sharpest knife in the drawer, as the saying goes, Merisiel has learned to make up for this by carrying at least a dozen of them on her person. When things go wrong with her carefully laid plans (as they almost always seem to do), the knives come out and what needs to be done gets done. To date, Merisiel hasn't met a problem that can't, in one way or another, be solved with daggers.
Merisiel's life experiences have taught her to enjoy things to their fullest as they occur—it's impossible to tell when the good times might end. She's open and expressive with her thoughts and emotions, and while she's always on the move and working on her latest batch of plots for easy money, in the end it comes down to being faster than everyone else—either on her feet, or with her beloved blades.She wouldn't have it any other way."

Found here.

SFW: Changing by Benita Winckler

A German digital artist Benita's official website is currently dead and most of her work doesn't turn up her name so I hope to rectify this a little.

SFW: Seductive Afternoon

She carries herself with a fine combination of style and class but also a kind of down and dirty fuck you hard vibe. The light cigarette and private garden in the afternoon lends a classical Hollywood atmosphere to her hunt for a sexual conquest.

SFW: Not a Matter of Size.... by OceanLord

Poor elf only has a scalpel. Perhaps he's a doctor? Take note of the lightning shooting form the tiny skull earrings and how that eagle on the breast plate either loves or hates the cross.

Not a Matter of Size....

SFW: Swinger, But Not That Kind

A young couple rig up a simple swing in the middle of a deep forest. It is a time of peace and what better way to enjoy such tranquility than with some romance and cuddles?

SFW: Dragon Magazine #292 by Wayne Reynolds

Woodland elf on her ferocious ferret. This is one of those rare women in practical armor and clothes in fantasy drawings.

SFW: Fairy by William Stout

Apparently Tinkerbell was indicted. Probably for those times she tried to kill Wendy.
that a weird snail by the way, what with it having eyes and a mouth plus it's slime is really runny and dripping.

SFW: "Almost Fairy Time" by Arthur Rackham

If you think about all the stories about children finding a magical realm or falling into a world of enchantment you have to wonder, do the things we perceive as otherworldly and impossible have fantasies of our curious world?

NSFW: Wild Tribal Elf

I find it interesting how there are so many brown and black skinned girls with blonde or white hair in Japanese illustrations and character designs. The aesthetic can be pretty striking and isn't only limited to the land of the rising sun with Storm being the most predominant western example to come to mind.
I think that the tribal and naturalistic styles are over looked far too much when it comes to the wild  or forest elves. When you think about it a people who would want to be close with nature and have little negative impact on it wouldn't be running around in 5 layer dresses, a whole bunch of plate mail, or even a fancy dress coat but clothes made out of animal & plant mater or nothing at all and would craft things out of traded, gifted, or scavenged goods.

SFW: The Spider and her Prey

One day a young butterfly was careless enough to fall into the spider's web. The spider felt sorry for the poor thing but she also hadn't eaten in a long time. She decided to have some fun, and for a change make the process as painless as possible for her prey.
With no hope of survival the butterfly tragically accepts her fate knowing the spider will make her end a pleasurable one.

SFW: Sylvanas Windrunner by Kalology

During the Undead campaign of Warcraft III you killed her and turned her into a slave. After the defeat of the scourge at the end of Warcraft III she formed a loose group of undead who weren't particularly happy with being zombies, slaves to the demons, or hunted and killed by the Alliance so she claimed a ruined city as her own and made the best of things.

NSFW: Harem by Daydream

I get the feeling that this is less of a harem for a king or queen and more of a naked grope club with the way the girls are clearly the dominant force.


NSFW: My 1st Lesbian Experience was with a Demon

I love how the albino elf looks like she's both disgusted but also can't get enough.
