Mosaic: The Legend of...

But this isn't so much about how much Ocarina blew my mind, versus how it was the first game to make me cognizant of Princess Zelda, and…why she was so legendary. Link and Marin’s relationship in Link’s Awakening is as imaginary (read: implicit, dreamlike) as the world of Koholint itself. But Ocarina was the first game ever to fully evolve the relationship of Link and Zelda…and to make me realize, and most definitely admire, that Zelda wasn't nearly as submissive as Princess Toadstool. Realizing that Zelda was Sheik, contemplating what it must have been like to be in disguise for seven years, seeing her completely kick ass when stripped of her royalty—whether you call me naïve or not, the relationship between Link and Zelda (and Zelda’s character in itself) is the reason I was determined, at that age, to find a woman who could think for herself—that this kind of woman was worth protecting, worth seeing as “legendary”, or even as a goddess incarnate.

Good read.

Esp. the part where the author talks about why it truly is "Legend of ZELDA". Interesting thoughts on the Link-Zelda dynamic.
