My art for the Legend of Zelda @calmandhopezine. The theme for this one was quieter and more intimate moments. I’ve always loved Skyward Sword’s Kikwis, so I thought it would be fun to draw them having some sort of picnic with Link and Zelda~
The Legend of Zelda:
you haven't played any loz games since this one.
you own the entire legend of zelda animated series on vhs.
A Link to the Past:
you're an elitist snob and/or you hate yourself.
you just want to be able to beat someone else up with multiplayer.
you fuckin love whales.
Ocarina of Time:
good man. who doesn't like this game. your favorite band might be the beatles though.
your blog title is "welcome to my twisted mind"
Oracle of the Ages:
you're a twin. your sibling got pokemon blue version.
Oracle of the Seasons:
you're a twin. your sibling got pokemon red version.
you are easily distracted by bright colors and pretty music so the endless sailing never bothered you. you want link's grandmother to adopt you.
Four Swords Adventure:
you just want to be able to beat someone else up with multiplayer, but on the gamecube.
The Minish Cap:
you thought it was adorable that you could become really really small and explore. You also have the hots for vaati.
you were that kid in elementary school who was way too obsessed with wolves. Possibly a furry.
you want to marry linebeck. I don't understand you. You also managed to get all the different boat designs somehow. How the fuck did you get all the parts for the golden ship. I hate you.
you really liked that zelda was a kindof playable character. The overworld theme plays on repeat in your head at all times. Link is so cute as a conductor. Wow link is adorable
your wii controller actually worked so link's sword went where you swung it.
A Link Between Worlds:
you were endlessly entertained by just fuckin slamming link into walls. You found every painting link could stand behind so it looked like he had a funny head. chicken link is your god.
you've never actually played a real zelda game.
A/N: And the opinion therefore. This may actually be first real slash I’ve ever written…huh. Also apparently in my head Ghirahim is like a snooty-perverted cat.
Link hates how short he is. How he barely reaches Ghirahim’s shoulder.
How when Ghirahim calls him “Skychild” he actually feels like one. Link
hates that the demon lord must bend low for their cheeks to touch when
he taunts. Or when Ghirahim leans over him, smirking as he takes the
space around Link. He can’t help but shudder as that cloying presence
envelopes him from all sides. Especially when Ghirahim is feeling
playful, flashing all over the room like a vicious magical whack-a-mole.
Ghirahim’s sword form is worse.
Link glares at the white diamond almost pressed to his face. A face that
twists into a scowl when an amused chuckle comes from above. He hates
being short he keeps telling himself. He hates it. And Ghirahim wraps
his hand in Link’s hair and lightly pulls back, back until he can see
his blue eyes.
Oh, Ghirahim loves his skychild’s height.
Relishes it. Has entertained many…thoughts of what could be done to
this petite form. For now he settles for dragging the hero in and up, up
without a single foothold. Unbalanced the boy is forced to wrap
legs around Ghirahim’s waist. His smirk turns into a grin as Link
flails about for a place to put his hands. Or perhaps that was an
attempt to stab him in the eye.
No matter he thinks, and proceeds to devour the boy from the mouth down.

Skyward Sword is not the most amazing Legend of Zelda, but the music (as always) was on point. The Ballad of the Goddess features prominently within the staff roll, but it takes the listener down many pathways before its final swell.
