i finally took the plunge and separated out BotW from the rest of my Zelda feeds and i gotta say it has definitely made the latter more manageable


nothing against BotW but itʼs not really in the same universe as the rest of Zelda and sometimes i just want some traditional old­‑fashioned fandom shit

traditional Zelda is hero vs. villain and BotW is hero vs. nature and those are just very different moods with an entirely different set of literary conventions

even in my favourite BotW fic where Ganon is an actively sentient force, it is still just hero(es) vs. god which still lacks all the political and cultural implications of traditional Zelda stories
