Seriously tho I directly go to the Lynel to Vah’Ruta, but if we’re realistic, Link would’ve need a break after that and following what I did myself, I imagine Link coming back by the parasail and acting like he’s all good but obviously he faint. Later he wake up surrounded by some guard and female zora who took care of him while he was unconscious under Sidon’s orders, while Sidon announced that Link fought the Lynel all by himself to get the lighting arrows.

gaining approval in da2: careful consideration of each dialogue response, micromanaging you party because some characters literally can’t be taken out together without losing approval, the eternal struggle of Getting Carver To Love You Back
gaining approval in dai: i stood on a hill and watched a bear fighting darkspawn on the storm coast and blackwall slightly approved three times
I’ve never read a book that treated its characters with more tenderness, generosity, and sympathy than Benjamin Sáenz’s Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Even when the characters don’t think they deserve it, especially when the characters don’t think they deserve it, the narrative holds out cupped hands full of love and patiently waits for them to take it. It makes my heart ache so much; it’s a book that genuinely makes me aspire to be a kinder person.
