Summary: When Shadow is introduced to a Hyrulean holiday celebrating different kinds of relationships, he starts to question whether his feelings for Vio are really as platonic as he has believed them to be for the past two years. But even if he lets himself admit that it’s romantic love, he can’t escape the feeling that he’s getting it wrong somehow. That he’s missing some crucial piece.
Who would expect a shadow-demon to be able to love properly, anyway?
asexual!Shadow, internalized acephobia/self-loathing, and lots of
pining. Which makes it sound like a much sadder story than it actually
is. I swear it ends well!
