ZD writes: Twilight Princess is a story of tragic love. Love that was too weak to repel darkness. Love whose nature opposed itself, forcing eternal separation. Love that preserved through countless generations a hope of great reunion, but lost all meaning. The restoration of the young girl Ilia’s memories is often counted as a great triumph in the love shared between her and Link, but that is also a tragedy. Its tragedy comes from eclipsing another story, a deeper tragedy. This story haunted Ilia through her seemingly joyful time with the hero, though only one could know the source of her deep sadness and loss – feelings Ilia didn’t even realize she had.
