Charlie's Green Link Shrine

Green Link

Green Link is an extremely important character to me. Believe it or not, he used to be my least favorite Link, but he's grown on me an absurd amount in the past few years. Now I can't imagine being anything other than his #1 fan. I used to be one of those people who labeled him as a "mom friend" or else saw him as boring. Now I cringe at views like that.

There is so much I could say about Green. I could fill entire books with it. But this is a webpage, and you just wanted to see me nerd out about him in a way that's easy to read.
So here goes:

Green Link is the kindest character I know. His kindness is everything to me. He is kind, but he also knows how to assert himself, and he stands up for justice. He is a gentle whisper in your ear. He is the Sun, burning and blazing with righteous anger. He is a blanket on a cold night. He is a hero, and he has depression, and he cherishes his loved ones more than anything, and he wants to kill himself because he feels like a burden, but he ultimately just wants to love. He wants to give you all of his love. But he'll respect your autonomy and never force you to do anything you don't want to do. He knows he can't control you. He doesn't want to. Hylia knows he shouldn't - he struggles to understand why he's a leader at all if he's so plain compared to his brothers. He loves so strongly. He is kind and he is a go-getter and he is a brother and he is a son and he is the hero of Hyrule. But above all, he's a part of Link, and I think he feels both blessed and plagued by that fact.

I like Green Link. I like Green Link a normal amount.
