giant killing

Link: My guardian the Great Deku Tree just died and I was blamed for it and exiled out of my village despite that I killed a giant one eyed spider ten times my size to try to save him and I just traveled across an entire country barefoot all by myself because I was told that I must find my way into Hyrule Castle so I can meet a Princess I’ve never heard of before so we can save the world!

Malon:

everyone’s saying how cowardly it was of Lars to run and hide while he should have tried to defend Sadie in the last episode, but I actually thought that it was super realistic?? like honestly come on, he’s a teenager who, unlike Connie or Steven, has never been in a real battle, and before that he spent a day inside his captor’s body, of course he was terrified. I’m not exactly a fan of Lars as a character, and I’m not trying to say that it is totally fine to abandon your loved one when their life is in danger, I just think that he can’t be judged in a situation like that. Lars is an ordinary boy, not heroic, and no one can tell for sure how they will behave if facing a giant alien killing machine, right? he really tried to pluck up his courage, but failed. to me, that made him more relatable, not pathetic or bad

(also he stayed on the ship because of that, and I’m sure that he will get an opportunity to prove himself in the future episodes)

The fact that a literal giant of a man like Alexander III was totally terrified of making his itty bitty wife mad is so hilarious to me.

To quote his youngest daughter Olga in a biography of her:

“My father had the strength of a Hercules, but he never showed off when other people were present. He told us that he could bend horseshoes and cutlery quite easily, but did not dare do it because my mother would have been furious. Yet once in the study he bent an iron poker and then straightened it out. I remember how he kept his eyes on the door in case someone were to come in!”
