Dear OoT Link,
You just defeated Ganondorf! Yay! Congratulations on your recent victory. Now you are going to be sent back seven years into the past to relive your lost teenage years. No, no, don’t bother protesting. This is what’s best for you. Don’t worry once you’re sent back in time no one will remember your bravery or all the hard work you did to free Hyrule from tyranny. You’ll return to being a simple, ordinary boy. Your fairy will also desert you, and you’ll be sent into a terrifying parallel universe where you’ll once again be expected to save the world. Don’t fret though. It won’t take seven years this time. You’ll have only three days to do it or be crushed by a giant, maniacal moon. After that, you will go on to live a boring and unfulfilling life where after you die you will linger on as a resentful warrior ghost for roughly 100 years whose goal is to pass on his knowledge to his successor who has no idea who you are. We should also mention that the time line you are now absent from will allow Ganondorf to break free of his prison and take over Hyrule since you are no longer there to stop him. This will result in Hyrule being flooded and everyone forgetting about its existence within a century. Funny, how that stuff works out, isn’t it? We hope this letter finds you well and happy holidays!
P.S. We forgot to mention there is also a timeline where you die. Our bad, TROLOLOL. Good thing that’s not your timeline, right?
My thoughts on how Nintendo treats OoT Link. He got the shaft.
