A Pretty Tragedy

In conclusion, my feelings on this relationship can be summed up as:

I don't know, but the whole ethics of the relationship adds another twisty level of respect for Zelda. Clearly she isn't some love-driven ditz. She's colder and harder than a lot of people give her credit for, and she has a kind of ruthless practicality. It also demonstrates her level of self-sacrifice.

Poor Zelda. It seems she would deny herself joy so that her kingdom may have peace. Childish giggling aside, I'm not sure I could picture the adult Zelda as happy. Content, yes, but she seems to me an elegant and chaste woman, running herself on more or less scientific principles.

I do still hope that in the future we will see the LinkxZelda relationship acted out in less doomed terms. I think it's a possibility that in the next Zelda game, with a very adult Link, we might see more concrete evidence for the LinkxZelda pairing. However, like I said, I'm not a big fan of overt romances, but I think they'll keep it subtle if they ever tackle that subject at all.
