I don't know if you have answered something along these lines, but I've just been really interested about Link's "alliances" with the most recent chapters. It's pretty obvious that he is very conflicted (between Allen and the Order, presumably since he has been with Allen for a while now). It's interesting that when "the 14th" tries to fake being Allen in one of the recent chapters, Link is just like "drop the act" rather immediately. I don't know haha, just wondering what your take is?
i think link’s probably going to to have to decide whether he’s going to mindlessly follow his duty or go with what he feels is right i.e. does he side with the 14th and give no regard to allen’s existence? or does he try and help allen and potentially disobey his orders? i think he’s very conflicted and he clearly sees allen as important and he’s someone link cares about, but he also relies on lvellie’s guidance a lot and being a crow is the only purpose he’s had since he was a child, so i can imagine it won’t be an easy decision to abandon his duty just like that.
the thing is, as long as helping allen doesn’t conflict with helping neah, he’d probably be able to get away with it. but if helping allen means he’s not helping neah or directly hindering him? kinda goes against his orders to be the 14th’s ally. it’ll be really interesting to see whether link decides to take his own initiative with this or not.
