his name is link not zelda

andelynk  asked:

First Link - Hylia's Chosen Hero and Twilight Link

First Link:

  • His spirit is connected with Fi’s since his spirit “awoke” the master sword
  • every Link after this Link is the first Link reborn
  • even tho every link is basically the same Link reborn they’re each different people and once they die their spirits are attached to the master sword so they’re always watching over the next hero
  • he also has long hair that he keeps in a pony tail
  • before he was imprisoned he lived alone with a dog. together they’d protect their home that they loved so dearly
  • his dog’s name was Mot
  • he only trusts himself to make the best weapons for himself to use
  • it was always his dream to go and explore the rest of the land. just him and his dog going through the forests or climbing mountains or crossing hot deserts just to see what was out there

Twilight Princess Link:

  • he is buff as hell and can probably bench press an ordon goat
  • He made all of his own clothes
  • he is just a bit scared of Zelda
  • he also admires her. 
  • he considers Midna his closest friend
  • ever since she broke the mirror of twilight he spends hours in the royal library trying to find a way to fix it
  • when he realizes he can’t do that he prays to the goddesses and travels all across the country trying to find an ancient temple or something with another way into the twilight realm
  • sometimes he’ll spend a good while just staring at his shadow and expect her to jump out

Wolf Link:

  • soft fur
  • loves to spend time talking to the cats and dogs in Castle town
  • spends time with Agitha! he helps her look for rare bugs
  • as a wolf he can do things he couldn’t as a human, like spend a bunch of time in the forest with the skull kids
  • at night he’ll howl at the moon far away enough from the castle so no one freaks out but close enough so Zelda can close her eyes and enjoy it
  • if anyone is brave enough to actually get close to wolf Link, he’ll grin in their direction just for fun. it freaks whoever is near him out
  • he visits Impa a lot. Just so she can sit there and pet him for hours while talking. It makes he feel nice to see someone/something other than a ghost town and a bunch of cats
BotW things that bring me joy:
  1. Everyone is hot for Link
  2. Prince Sidon’s lil tiny babby leggies
  3. Paya mistakes her crush on Link for an illness and goes around town asking for medicine and so now everyone knows what’s up
  4. Wolf Link is a good boy and I love him
  5. Impa was reserved about telling Link about Paya’s birthmark but as time goes on she just shouts it out for Link and the whole town to hear
  6. Mipha is alive and well (no i’m not in denial just let me have this)
  7. A village was built directly next to Lon Lon Ranch and was named Mabe Village, after the village Marin [who Malon was based off of] lived in
  8. In Mabe Village Ruins you can just barely hear the tune from Link’s Awakening being played very slowly (OK this also makes me sad)
  9. There are landmarks named after characters from Majora’s Mask, another implication that the Hero of Time did indeed make it back safely from Termina and shared his stories of what happened there
  10. The Yiga clan’s obsessive love of bananas
  11. Prince Sidon’s smile god bless
  12. Goron Yaoi Hands
  13. Beedle is convinced you are either
    1.  His stalker
    2. A spouse from a past life
  14. Riding Sidon  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  15. Contrary to everyone’s expectations, the romance in BotW was between Link and Mipha god bless these fish
  16. Paya’s first reaction to you is “A MAN?!?!?!?!?!?”
  17. Tingle is not in the game
  18. Seriously though good fucking riddance

Another commission by @hernyart!

This time, it’s Mink from Dragon Half! Dragon Half is a comedy by Ryūsuke Mita about a girl named Mink who is half human, half dragon. It had a 7-volume manga (1988-1994) and a 4-episode animated miniseries (1993) that only released 2 episodes due to lack of interest. The initial conflict is that Mink wants nothing more than to marry her favourite singer/idol Dick Saucer, who also happens to be a dragon slayer (you see the conflict). However, there is also an overarching antagonist named Azetodeth, who Mink occasionally has run-ins with his minions throughout her adventures.

Fun Fact: Some of the side characters in the manga are named after famous Nintendo characters (Pia’s parents [little black-haired friend] are Mario and Peach, Lufa’s parents [little blonde-haired friend] are Zelda and Link). Aside from the names, the characters don’t really look like the famous Nintendo characters.

Unfortunately, I can see why the anime failed to find it’s market, but it’s really a shame because I would’ve enjoyed a complete series for this. It’s one of the first anime I’d ever watched way back when I first realized anime was a thing, which is why I am very bias towards it.

okay but I want Link and Zelda as teachers at the same high school

  • imagine Link as a history teacher and Zelda as a law and government teacher
  • They share a wall. 
  • Zelda uses a more traditional lecture style, she teaches mostly advanced students and is generally well respected (if not a little feared. she’s kinda stern and expects a lot from her kids)
  • Link is the COMPLETE opposite. Every student in the school goes through his class, and he doesn’t have the patience (or the heart, he’s a huge softy) to reprimand anyone in the middle of his teaching
  • So he’s basically developed a strategy of acting out the history and using props to make it as active and entertaining as possible
  • He has a replica of the master sword that he swings around and uses as a pointer as well as the hat. He wears the hat every day during the Age of Heroes. 
  • Plus he has every. single. shield that every hero has used mounted on his wall above his whiteboard (he painted them himself) 
  • Anyway Link is obviously a very animated lecturer and Zelda regularly reprimands him afterwards (and sometimes DURING his class) about the fact that he and his class are being too loud and interrupting her teaching.
  • Link refuses to be put down, fondly calls her “Princess” because her name is Zelda (he’s that much of a history dweeb) and cheerfully goes back to exactly what he was doing before she started with him. 
  • Anyway one day Link pokes a bit of fun at Zelda saying that his students come from her class half asleep and he’s so loud just to get them to pay attention so maybe she should take a page out of his book
  • Zelda is NOT accepting of this information
  • He invites her to one of his classes and begrudgingly, just to prove him wrong, she goes
  • And wow. 
  • Link discussing battle strategy is the best thing she’s seen in years. He’s waving around his sword with his hat and his dopey grin and even the lowest performing students in the school are participating 
  • Of course it’s loud. They’re laughing. Students are shouting out the answers to his questions when he pauses in his re-enacting. 
  • He pulls out a fucking PIG MASK playing out ganondorf and that’s when Zelda realizes
  • yup
  • she’s in love

**Feel free to use, just don’t forget to let me know and please credit (link back to the post) 

Zelda in BotW is an amazing character. If I had to make a list of the 10 best characters in the LoZ games, I have a hard time imagining she wouldn’t be on it. And nearly everything I’ve seen from other people who have played the game has been bursting with positivity and appreciation for this Zelda. 

However, I’m unfortunately not surprised to have eventually run across someone calling her “a miserable cunt” and a “shitty little shit bag” who is “demoralizing [Link] into oblivion” with over 100 people liking/reblogging their post. 

There are a couple of things to say in response to this. For starts, Jesus christ calm down. It’s wild to me how ready people are to hate characters for almost anything (and it overwhelmingly happens with female characters–jeez I wonder why). And second, did we even play the same game? Because you know what the WORST we ever saw Zelda acting towards Link was? 

That’s… that’s it. She told him she didn’t need an escort and shouted at him to stop following her. And this wasn’t just the worst that Zelda ever acted towards Link. It was also the ONLY time we saw her shouting at him or being mean to him. Was it rude/crummy/something Link didn’t deserve? Totally. Was it her being ~a miserable shitty little shit bag cunt that fucking destroyed Link’s sense of self worth~? Hell no. How the hell do you extrapolate THAT MUCH out of such a small scene? 

Just to help paint a larger, and more negative picture of Zelda, let’s talk about another memory. In the first memory, which was of Zelda preforming the ceremony to appoint Link as her knight, Zelda was acting very clearly depressed during the whole thing. That would have conveyed to Link how unhappy Zelda was with him being her knight, which would have surely made Link feel shitty. So there, that’s something else people who hate this Zelda can point to. But you know what? If you want to analyze things like this, Link also made Zelda feel shitty. Oh, sure, we all know that Link made Zelda feel shitty because of her own insecurities about being a failure of a royal princess while Link had successfully become the master of the Master Sword. But Link’s own behavior also made Zelda feel shitty. We saw in the third memory that Zelda would try to talk normally with Link. Talking casually and cheerfully about making adjustments to one of the Divine Beasts because that’s what she was passionate about! But Link… would never say anything back in response. He was silent. He was her appointed knight, but he wouldn’t even talk to her when she tried to talk to him. In fact, at that point Link had NEVER spoken to Zelda, as she expressed in her diary 

Imagine if their situations were reversed, and we saw Link talking to Zelda and Zelda refusing to respond to him and just staring at him with a blank expression–and then Link wrote in his diary about how stressful that was for him and how it made him feel like she thought he was a failure and hated him. The people who hate BotW Zelda would be jumping on that as an example of what a bitch Zelda was to Link. Even though when Link did it to Zelda, there’s no problem whatsoever apparently. Link was just a smol little precious angel that was cowering beneath Zelda’s “toxic belittling and dominance,” as one person described it. 

(And real quick… you know who was ACTUALLY “belittling” and “demoralizing” Link? Fucking Revali. You know, the guy who would walk right up to Link and go on a giant, passive aggressive and mockery-filled rant at Link about how he’s better than Link and Link doesn’t deserve the expectations that others have of him. I still think Revali is a solid character because it’s good to have a diverse cast with varied personalities and different relationship dynamics with each other. But for crying out loud, how is anyone going to hate on Zelda for how she acted towards Link early on when Revali was there being a straight up dick with 0 tragic character motivation behind him to make us sympathetic to why he acted like such a wad?) 

Of course I don’t believe that Link deserves any hate for being silent around Zelda for so long. Just like how I don’t believe that Zelda deserves any hate for the way she acted towards and felt about Link in the early memories. They were two youths who had the weight of the world placed upon their shoulders. Link’s ability to express himself was crushed by the weight of the expectations and judging eyes of everyone around him. Zelda lost her mother, was denied expressions of love from her father, was terrified that she was a failure who would doom the world to destruction because of her inability to access her powers, and was was stuck with a successful, brilliant knight who she assumed hated her and had no way of being told otherwise because HE WOULDN’T EVEN TALK TO HER. 

But despite all that the two became close. Link saved Zelda’s life. Zelda reevaluated how she thought of him and even apologized for her past behavior 

Zelda made an effort and kept talking to him, trying to get him to open up to her. And eventually he did, and she was able to learn the reason why he wouldn’t talk to her, or anyone, in the past. They traveled together. She examined his wounds after battle. They went out to collect specimens in the fields together. Zelda tried to get Link to lick a frog in the name of science. Link taught Zelda how to bond with her horse. They saw their home fall to Calamity Ganon and learned of the deaths of their family and friends. Their world collapsed. They fled. They defended each others’ lives, each saving the other. Zelda spent 100 years suffering alone to contain the abomination that destroyed their land while Link recovered from the injuries he gained protecting her. They fought together again. They freed Hyrule from 100 years of darkness and set out once again to rebuild their kingdom together. 

But yeah. Zelda was such a cunt, right? 

I mean, you can’t please everyone. That’s just to be expected. People are different. People have different attitudes and values, and like and enjoy different things, so there’s no piece of media that everyone will have the same thoughts and feelings on. It’s like how on the Nintendo eShop, BotW for the Wii U has 4719 five star reviews… and 21 one star reviews. You can’t please everyone. But again, jesus christ some people are just ready to violently hate Zelda for having extremely well developed character flaws and a rocky start to her relationship with Link that was the result of both of their individual issues clashing and preventing them from connecting and understanding each other even though they both felt nearly the exact same way. And even if you want to insist that everything bad about their early relationship was 100% Zelda’s fault alone, I wonder how Zelda could possibly make up for it… maybe putting in the effort to develop a very positive relationship with Link, saving his life just as he had saved hers, and spending 100 years in Ganon Jail would be enough to make up for it? 

…nah. You’ve got to imprison yourself for at least TWO HUNDRED years to make up for telling someone to stop following you one time. Totally.

Guys, we finally find out why link doesn’t talk!! (Unless he with Zelda :) )

I want to learn more about Link backstory, was the reason why he’s like this is because of his father? Not wanting to distract him from being head knight. We don’t know anything about links mother. And the only backstory we have of him, is that he was childhood friends with that one guardian Zora girl (I can’t remember her name). Hopefully in the future we’ll learn more about his family in future games.
link + memories

link only knowing his name because zelda told it to him immediately after he woke up

link hearing zeldas voice again for the first time in a century and understanding it as a strangers voice while it simultaneously stirs some tiny speck of familiarity somewhere in the deepest part of his subconscious

link walking around hyrule, feet wandering down paths he doesnt even remotely know through seemingly alien muscle memory

the scars littering links skin aching in a vague, hazy memory of the pain that accompanied them there, but with no recollection of what put them there

the familiar feeling of the raising of the hair on his neck upon catching the movements of a guardian out of the corner of his eye, despite having only just learned what the relentless monsters were

the aching tug of guilt in his chest when faces fall after their ecstatic cries of dont you remember me? are met with silence

the vague, ever present sense of déjà vu that accompanies everything he sees, hears, smells, tastes, does

the incessant guilt weighing on his skin at some thing hed done that he cant even begin to recall

the constant tickle at the back of his mind of i know this, ive seen this, i know i have but not knowing quite how or why or when or where or who

finally getting at least a few precious memories back only to realize he was remembering the dead, remembering a hyrule that hadnt existed for a hundred years

thenerdherd102  asked:

Can Kass be an uncle in that AU who sometimes comes to Zora's domain to catch up with Link and sing songs for all the children?

Such a cute idea I just had to sketch uncle Kass reading them a book! Mostlikeley after he sang with/for them.

I gave her Sidon’s little whistle while while the Goron has a few designs on his Shirt that remind of Link’s Champion tunic. (Like their dads! I’m too deep in that ship)  Just need names for the two :v:

the life and times of ryan ross pt 8

.2015/2016

welcome all! make sure to thank @jen–ne–sais–quoi for the existence of these posts because the poor thing asked to know about ryan and now she probably knows more than she ever wanted to!

here in our final chapter, we shall see what ryan has been up to from where we left off in 2015 to as current as we can be as of today (feb 26, 2017) this is mostly links and pictures because he didn’t actually do a whole lot

alright, early 2015. pretty much all ryan ross does is spend time with friends, mostly dan keyes and ryland blackinton. he goes to coachella and looks lovely in his hawaiian shirt. 

he also posted some teasers about making music on instagram, but we saw no new music. 

the most important thing about 2015 is ryan’s beard. 

look at it. it’s glorious. 

in february/march of 2015 zayn has left one direction (this is a ryan ross post, why is she talking about one direction??? it’s relevant, i promise.) someone thought it would be funny to edit the 1d wikipedia page to day that ryan ross had joined the band. 1d fangirls lost their minds. ryan tweeted “ You guys got it all wrong, the four remaining members of One Direction are joining MY band” 

if you look at his twitter throughout 2015, some of the tweets are vastly different than others. it could’ve been him on drugs, it could’ve been shane morris. personally, i think it was more shane, but the other is a possibility. also in june 2015, he got super fucked up and crashed a PHASES show. there are pictures of it out there, but i don’t think it’s really appropriate to share them. i also vaguely remember someone (z maybe?) asking for them to not be shared because ryan was really embarrassed and upset about it. about the incident he said “Def was having too much fun at the Phases show tonight, I promise I’ll never do it again  again” so there’s that.

then in july ryro got a girlfriend! he began dating model helena vestergaard and it seemed really good for him. it was certainly good for all of us fans because he posted so much while they were together. she also posted a lot about him. there were so many ryan pictures. it was glorious. here are some pics

then the next most important thing of 2015 happened. 

dorothy ross. 

ryan and helena got the cutest puppy in the world

from then on his instagram is pretty much dottie, but none of us mind because she’s precious. 

we also got this monstrosity

that’s all i’m gonna say about that. more helena and dottie pictures. then we get a picture where ryan tells us he’s taking vocal lessons!! and then he posted a teeny clip of a new song!!! more dottie & helena. a video of him learning to box?

don’t forget that this era of ryan likes hockey and baseball. he watches both and plays hockey too. 

halloween 2015. the fucking party. so. you thought we were done talking about brendon urie. we’re not. by 2015, he and ryan are not talking, at all. brendon usually avoids talking about ryan at all. then adam levine (yes, that one) has a halloween party. ryan’s invited because he’s best friends with mickey madden. he goes as a gremlin. well, a mogwai because he’s fuzzy and not scaly, but yeah. 

brendon, dressed as a skeleton and with sarah, was also there. as far as i’m aware, they basically didn’t even talk. brendon goes on to mention it a million times.

btw, by this point ryan doesn’t use his twitter anymore, it’s all just instagram links. there were some tweets earlier in the year that i’ll be talking about in my shane morris companion piece, but basically, shane likes to troll ryan’s fans by tweeting things or posting things on facebook then quickly deleting them.

also in 2015, ryan posts a picture of what seem to be song titles along with promises for making new music (the “shut the fuck up” was in response to someone telling him to go to bed btw) 

we’re now at the end of 2015. it seems like this is when ryan finally disconnects his twitter from his instagram because (except for one) his tweets stop and his instagram continues. he has also dropped shane morris as his manager (thank god)

near the beginning of 2016, ryan tells us that he has written a song for a band called agelast (sadly, that is pronounced ah-gel-ist, not age-last) he posted on both twitter and facebook about this. i’m inclined to believe both posts were actually him, not shane, but who knows. there was this comment on the facebook page that would be nice if it was from him. 

then, also early 2016, he and helena broke up. he was all set to fly to visit her in australia on a long term modeling job, and maybe he did, but that was that on helena vestergaard. she deleted all traces of him from her social media. he continued to play hockey and post pictures of dottie. 

he also bought 5 pounds of sour patch kids, causing all of us to fear for his health. then he starts to become a bit of a recluse. he posts a lot less frequently and it’s usually dottie pictures. 

then he goes to a renaissance fair and saves lives with his look 

easily the most important part of 2016 was when ryan did a surprise performance with dan keyes’ band cologne at emo nite la. it’s everything. EVERYTHING. watch it now. it felt like a nice comeback and he looked GOOD

we also got another tiny song clip. more pictures and videos of dottie. he also modeled some new PHASES merch with Z and Langley 

he went to the beach and we were blessed with this glorious image 

then he turned 30! and jeremy burke & alison harvard threw him a mini party at midnight with pizza! 

also sometime in august, his demo ep was deleted from soundcloud (his whole soundcloud was deleted) along with his site going down and his facebook page being deleted. the only thing we know is actually ryan is his instagram. 

then came halloween. with costumes in the past like et, a sloth, and a gremlin, we knew he would not disappoint. he was link from legend of zelda and he spent a good amount of the party (adam levine’s again, bden was not there) with victoria asher and gabe saporta from cobra starship. have some pics. 

(that’s gabe beside him)

then he “drank some blood” in this adorable video with his vocal coach

throughout 2016, a director named dan adams (glitterworldinc on insta) had been tagging ryan in a lot of pictures. i’m going to make a companion piece for him as well, but i’ll mention him here. he posts pictures of ryan, sometimes with strange captions, sometimes with rude captions. many pictures didn’t have ryan in them, but he was tagged. some pictures were of ryan’s house or around echo park. see more about that in the companion piece. lots of speculation went on about what he was doing with ryan. we’ll get to that in a minute. something more exciting now. the longest clip of new music that makes me cry every single time i listen to it, that callback line. (fun fact, z commented on it and called him space boi which is where i get one of my tags for him)

he looked beautifully goth for new years 

now we’re in 2017!

we found out this year that all the things glitterworldinc had been posting are because ryan’s going to be in his new movie!! he’s playing a character named Dewey Parsons in daniel adams’ new movie starmaker

the newest picture we have from ryan himself is this

and dan adams (glitterworldinc) has recently posted two! one was posted today! 

and that is basically everything i know about ryan ross’ life from the earliest facts i know to today! thank you for coming along on this crazy long ride with me and reading this giant mess. i’ll make those companion pieces here soon, so look out for those!

EDIT: Update!!!!! ryan posted this mere hours after i finished this because he likes to make my life harder (i’m mostly kidding, i love him so much)

his caption: “On all twos Makin tunes on toons”

EDIT NUMBER 2: i should have made an outline for these posts, jesus christ. i told you all in another post that the guitar ryan burned alive would be important later and then i never told you why. the why is because brendon still has it. yep, he has the guitar that ryan burned all the way back in the cabin/pretty. odd. era. how do we know this? oh, just because brendon put it in his literal house of memories. it’s fine, i’m not crying. (it’s not fine, i am crying) the house of memories is a vip thing for this tour where fans can go in and take pictures with a bunch of old panic! things, from the masks from fever era to stuff from the victorious video. i would kill to go. 

Zelink Head Canon

-Zelda approaches Bolson to manage the rebuilding of the castle, but let’s him know she will need more people on his team for time management and some of the workers will not have “son” in their name.

 -Bolson is very hesitant to entertain the idea. Finally agrees with the condition that Zelda names her first born and heir to the throne child a “-son” name.

 -Zelda wants to refuse, Link steps in to save the day offering to name his first TWO children a “-son” name.

 -Bolson, eagerly agrees. 

 -Link thinks he’s clever because he’s convinced he, as the princesses attendant, will never marry or have children. 

 -Zelda is frustrated beyond words because Link is who she wants to have a family with and NOW SHE WOULD AHVE TO NAME TWO OF THEIR KIDS A “SON” NAME. 

devilsneverdies  asked:

kendo captain Link who moonlights as the Fierce Deity for the magical heroes au?

Link is actually a high school drop out that is gifted a sword from Fi and becomes a hero, but sure, why not. I’m gonna do the thing like in Pokemon anime where there are 50 million different versions of Nurse Joys and Officer Jennys except with Link. So now every iteration of Link exists in the Magical Hero AU as relatives of each other and they all somehow all have the same name. And all of the Links are inexplicably very fond of Fi for one reason or another.

FD Link is blind and teaches kendo at a local dojo. He is a magical hero so he can transform into his armor and shit. Fi is a part of his class and likes the head pats he gives her.

(Fi is not a child in this pic, she’s just really short and FD Link is just really tall)

Headcanon that Zelda made wacky little doodles of Link around her research notes and sometimes wrote his name with little hearts and stars around it but never paid any mind to it cause no one ever read her notes

and when Link finds it a hundred years later he just pockets it and looks through them cause he finds it wonderful and he’s just so happy for a while looking at all the funny things she drew about him
