"It's dangerous to go alone. Take this". It's a classic Zelda line, uttered by the Old Man as he gives Link his first sword. But what if, instead of it being an old man, it was Link's old lady?
Andrew Bridgman over on Dorkly explores this, making it not just Link's mother, but what is surely a nagging Jewish one at that, worried about her son's health, waistline and, of course, love life.
I've never even paused to consider the possibility that "Link" has always just been short for "Alan Linkenbean". But hey, with Zelda's canon possibly the loosest in all of gaming, you can never entirely rule it out!
