Luthor's part is first person and Link's is third person limited.
The hand that wasn't holding the digital tablet clenched excitedly, upon receiving critical information concerning my current occupation: Power Seeker.
Right now, the power I sought lay in the Triforce, an ancient artifact from the time of the dark ages that represented three qualities: Wisdom, Courage, and Power.
In my soul I could feel I possessed all of these qualities, and the heartfelt belief I had in myself was overwhelming to the core. Now, I couldn't simply try to find them in modern times; No, I'd have to go back to the past, to the exact year the Triforces had been congregated, the year 1146 C.E. The very heart of medieval times, a time of myth and legend.
But as you know, there is truth to every legend and myth.
And I, Alexander Luthor, intend to find it.
Link paused, the usual flow of nature somehow... disrupted. As if there were a static ripple echoing throughout the flora and fauna of the land; Hyrule, that is.
The Triforce of Courage glowed ceremoniously on the back of his hand, and taking this as a sign to be ready, got up and drew the Master Sword and the Hylian Shield.
Then things really started to get strange in Hyrule. Suddenly he was ambushed by a crowd of panicky animals, fleeing from the south. He crouched and raised his shield; he meant no harm to the beasts, but whether or not the feeling was mutual remained to be seen, if ever to be seen.
Seeing as he was south of the castle, he needed to head left, since he had been going west for his daily walk.
As expected, he heard Zelda speak to him telepathically, her voice even and controlled.
"Link? I trust you are well?" she waited for his response, and as it came, she breathed a sigh of relief.
"Yes, my princess." Link responded out loud, but Zelda would hear it anyways. "I must investigate this disturbance. It could mean danger."
"Very well." She closed the connection and he began his trip south, guided by the sun and later on, the stars.
"Dr. Lathrop, I hope all is in order?" I asked, hands behind my suited back, clasped tightly together.
"Please, Mr. Luthor, call me Doc. I always hated formalities." He'd smile briefly before continuing to work on the DeLorean he'd modified to travel through time. Giving it a pat, he looked to me and nodded, smiling. "The flux capacitor is in order, and we've amassed the one point twenty-one gigawatts of power necessary. Now, I've been to the future. So, roads are no problem... even considering the population density of Metropolis and the amount of exhaust in the air, you should be fine as long as you keep the windows shut. Wouldn't want it clogging the HEPA filter, now, would we?" He shook my hand and patted me on the back gingerly as if afraid of my wrath should I no longer want him around.
"Don't worry about the suit, I was going to dispose of it anyways in favor of this." I scrolled about on the tablet for a brief moment before touching a button. A wall slid up like a garage door to reveal my armor, Titanium A and steel alloy plates. "So I can blend in a bit when I get there." I grinned as I looked at my weapon, a massive shotgun. "...Just a bit." I'd made sure to install magnets so I didn't leave any shells laying around. Wouldn't want the knights getting too far ahead of themselves, eh?
"Mr. Luthor, there's something I should explain concerning the conditions on getting back to the future..." Doc's lip tightened as with a nod from me, he continued. "You will need a metal pole to attach to the top of the car for when the next storm hits in medieval times. Get to eighty-eight miles per hour and remain at that speed, no matter what, otherwise it won't work and you'll be stuck until the next storm comes or fried outright." He explained as I donned my suit and shotgun, outfitting myself with my specially crafted gas-filtering helm. What Doc didn't know was that my entire suit was lined with rubber to discourage electrical charges.
"Don't worry, Dr. Brown, I'll be fine."
"If you say so."
Approaching the appropriate area where the disturbance he felt had originated, he observed the char-blackened wood in two straight lines to either side of him.
"Strange. Usually this clearing is teeming with life. What happened?" He shook his head and straightened, the Triforce of Wisdom glowing in the back of his palm, informing him something was nearby, and he had to be ready for it, lest he be defeated or otherwise incapacitated.
"RAAAAARGH!" A deep voice echoed throughout the area as Ganondorf swung a broadsword at the area Link would've been in, had he not prepared for an attack. Suddenly, a force like the heaviest of blows and a piercing feeling of a thousand swords hit his chest, and he was thrown back, through four trees and a beehive. "GAAAHH!" He screamed as the bees swarmed him. They dissipated within moments, however, and he examined his chest. A massive crater that didn't quite breach the armor obstructed his breathing for a moment before a deep breath bought him some space. He just lay there recovering his lost breath as the fight carried on.
Nimbly dancing to one side to avoid a heavy blast from the shotgun, Link rolled towards Lex and came up in a vertical slice which chipped deep into the shot gun. A swift front kick from Lex sent him tumbling back head over heels, but he was up within a moment nonetheless. Luckily, he was kicked at an angle in which the Master Sword slipped smoothly out of the chip in the superior weapon.
Gazing intently through the eyes of the mask, Lex aimed his shot gun. Bah, he'd never been a very good shot. He knew he should've installed the targeting system. But too late now. He charged in closer to Link in order to do a close range shoot/melee with the butt of the weapon, but he was tackled at the last moment, a massive force smashing him into the ground.
It was Ganondorf, broadsword in hand, armor still slightly dented but no worse for ware, extended a hand towards Link. "Truce?" He asked, not taking his eyes off Lex, who was now back on his feet.
As Lex leveled the weapon, Link took the hand, replying, "Truce" as he used Ganondorf's rock-steady hand to push himself in a leap at Lex, Master Sword raised in one hand and Hylian Shield held forwards in the other, and beginning to bring the sword down as Ganondorf started to charge, broadsword finding final use as he swung for Lex's side...
Sorry if the characterization is a bit off, writing this from one to three thirty in the morning to get it submitted in time.

The July Challenge will tentatively take place between the days of July 11th through the
23rd (could be subject to change)27th (extension).
Match looks good from a glance, but you have time to make corrections if you want.

Switching perspective doesn't really disrupt the flow of the story as I thought it would, it simply adds another dimension.
You'll have to ask somebody else for grammar correction though, from what I can see it looks good.
Edit: As for who will actually win, I'm not sure, and since I can't rate the match without choosing a winner, I'll just say it here, an 'A' from me.
