this is about Legend of Zelda don't look

I love how the entire freaking conflict of Ocarina of Time hinges on Zelda making some massive leaps in reasoning about Ganondorf. Like, she just kind of looked at him, thought he looked evil, and was like

“Hey, you, random kid who snuck past my guards, you see that guy? He’s evil because he reminded me of some dark clouds from a very vague dream I had, I think he wants to take over the world! LET’S KILL HIM!”

Not exactly sure what I was going for here (or what he’s cooking) but here’s a hungry hero guy anyways!

The Writings of Princess Zelda, chapter one

Summary: The story of Princess Zelda and the forgotten Hero of Time, told entirely in Zelda’s diary entries. Child timeline.
Note: I posted this on ffn a few days ago where I got a notorious review saying I wasn’t a “true Zelda fan” – I’m not kidding, check it out here – and I don’t usually post fanfic here, but if there’s interest, I’ll continue posting on tumblr!

Chapter one: 23rd of November, age 9
He came to me today. The boy from my dreams is real, and he told me exactly what I feared: Ganondorf would soon conquer Hyrule and reign as the Evil King.

The strange thing, though, wasn’t when he said he came from the future – I can tell his eyes are honest – it was his name.

Link… his name is Link.

Whats your headcannon name for homerun girl? Also could you draw jyushi as a rito(bird person) from legend of zelda? Cause birb jyushi would be cute:D

{I tend to call her Homerun-chan as my tag would suggest, personally, but I also call her Homura a lot because that’s what I see most people roleplay her as, and let’s face it, in terms of first names it’s more believable. XD Of course headcanons are only as far as we can go though, since we don’t actually know anything about her name ;3

And um… I guess Rito!Jyushi would look something like this..?

…I don’t have that much confidence in this sketch TwT Sorry TwT}

~(    ( ´(00)`) oink oink

Can’t stop thinking about Zelda AU with them being childhood friends, sooooo I think imma do a webcomic about it >w< Any excuse to draw the trio happy (and then later on REALLY SAD) is good enough for me >u>

  • Me: *watches a dozen or so videos of other people's top 10 Legend of Zelda games
  • Me when their #1 isn't Wind Waker: so fucking wrong, don't give me this shit about the sailing taking too long, it's peaceful as fuck you piece of shit. It has the most exploration, tons of heart pieces, loads of memorable characters, the cell-shaded graphics look amazing, best music, best color palette, it even has the best combat because of the fun noises you get when you hit enemies. Link is so emotive, and there are moments that actually make me laugh.
  • Me: what am I doing with my life
Breath of the Wild spoilers

This game takes place after Twilight Princess, and Calamity Ganon is a horrific spider with, apparently, the head/skull of Ganondorf - that head having a different, longer beard than Twilight Princess Ganondorf’s body had when he ‘died’ in Twilight Princess.

So if I have this right, Zelda of her own volition went back to Hyrule Castle and stayed there, alone, “holding Ganon” for 100 years, waiting for Link’s resurrection. 

She somehow, in those intervening years, learned enough about Ganon’s motivations to say for certain that he’d given up on reincarnation. 

All I’m hearing here is “Zelda spent 100 years holding Ganon and learning everything about him.” So… I’d like to read a fanfiction answering some pressing questions I have. 

  • What were those 100 years like? (Apparently, Zelda was aware that whole time, since she talks about how she watched over Link.)
  • Where was she staying in the castle?
  • Where did Princess Zelda get the Bow of Light?
  • When/how did she figure out that Ganon had “turned his back on reincarnation?” Did she talk to him?
  • When exactly did Ganon become like the “pure enraged” version in this game?
  • If it was so evil and enraged, why did Ganon do basically nothing except for bringing all the monsters Link killed back to life during the Blood Moon? What was Ganon doing that whole 100 years?
  • When or where did Ganon/dorf get that sweet beard?

All I’m saying, in Breath of the Wild, Princess Zelda, of her own will, alone, self-sacrificially, goes to live in a cursed castle inhabited by a terrifying, mysterious cursed beast, to try to stem that beast’s vengeful rage from harming her loved ones. It’s a big mystery who this Beast is and where he came from, and what causes the curse, and she has an entire 100 years to solve those mysteries as she holds him at bay.

that’s literally the plot of beauty and the beast

I guess to illustrate my point about BotW, I’ll talk about one of the quests - there’s a part in the game where you can’t continue until you have 20 lightning arrows. The NPCs helpfully tell you there’s a monster at the top of the hill that shoots lightning arrows, and you can scavenge them from around his lair. There’s the assumption that you’ll go either sneak around and collect arrows up there, or even kill that monster and return with all his arrows.

I simply teleported to a town, bought lightning arrows, and returned. The game continued without a pause. I didn’t have to fail fighting the lightning guy 100 times. In other Zelda games, I would have been railroaded into fighting the lightning guy. But in this game, the Hard Zelda Game, I could choose not to go fight him.

Ultimate player control, multiple (multiple) solutions to any given problem, optional challenges. No abrupt bottlenecking where you’re not allowed to keep playing the game you bought until you mastered some tiresome un-fun mini game. All of this = great fun.

  • me: *slaughters entire little villages of monsters who were innocently minding their own damn business*
  • me: *standing over their body parts, blood-encrusted Master Sword in hand* I am the true monster here
  • BotW: *creepy music* 🎶
  • Zelda: The Blood Moon rises once again...
  • Ganon: *resurrects all the countless innocent monsters I murdered*
  • me: oh, thank god
