"Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it."
Fading Twilight, Page 2 Edit
"It is a great misfortune to be alone...and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason."
Fading Twilight, Page 3 Edit
"There is no light if you are not here with me. Lands that I never shared with you, I shall experience with you on ships across seas that exist no more. With you, I will go. I know you are with me."
Fading Twilight, Page 4 Edit
"In guilt there is hope. In shame there is none."
Fading Twilight is unique in that it is not a complete book and is found in scattered pages throughout Grief. The pages exclusively contain quotations.
Background and Inspiration Edit
Fading Twilight is the sixth of the Hero's Laments written by the Hero of Time.
The text of Page 1 comes from the novel Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett.
The text of Page 2 comes from The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne.
The text of Page 3 comes from a translation of lyrics of the song "Con te partirò." The original Italian lyrics were written by Lucio Quarantotto.
The text of Page 4 comes from a quote by Ze Frank. The quote in question comes from his video titled "Shame."
The first three pages of Fading Twilight were included with Grief in version 6.0 of Relics of Hyrule. Page 4 was added in version 6.3 with a redesign of the dungeon's interior.
The book was intended to reflect the broken sate of Grief, as well as the mindset of the Hero of Time. Its lack of original words is the result of JKalenad's struggle to determine what a full, light-themed book would be about after The City in the Sky, a book that is very "final" in nature. JKalenad decided to make Fading Twilight more open to interpretation than prior Laments.
