"Yeah, well I’m a Zelda for life so. What are you, burning sage down there?"

I spent the holidays in California. After New Years I rode back with my sister to her home in Santa Cruz (her home for the next five months, in any case!) to spent a few days with her.

On one of those days, we played Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for 11 straight hours and absolutely never got bored of it. It was amazing. <3 Like a summer day in middle school.

Which is all to say I love Zelda very much and wish it could be a regular presence in my life, even though it absolutely can't for all manner of reasons, probably the greatest of which being I don't live anywhere near my sister and we grew up playing this single-player game with two players and it doesn't feel complete to play it any other way.

BUT, owing to this renaissance of Zelda love, I came across this post, and it is absolutely 100% the model for how I enjoy approaching fannishness for any canon:


[link to original post]

ALWAYS CHOOSE THE MOST INTERESTING PATH. THE ONE THAT EXCITES YOU. THE ONE THAT BUILDS, OPENS, ENGAGES.

Which is, frankly, the entire spiritual core of Zelda. <3

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it or accept that there is more to the world than you think. Perhaps it is really a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things.
