Dear Eve Ensler,
I want to start off by saying thank you. I appreciate the time you took to reach out to me, because I know you’re incredibly busy. I know there are much more important people in this world than myself, so I appreciate you engaging in dialogue with me and my colleague Kelleigh…
Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.
This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.
Hope you like it!
THIS IS LITERALLY THE BEST FANART I HAVE EVER SEEN OMFG
Tumblr these last few days and possibly everywhere else on the internet :)
“Those poor boys’ lives will be ruined because of this.”
“But the girl was wearing—”
“She was drinking alcoho—”
“They won’t be able to play football anymore!”
“The boys’ futures are ruined because of her!”
“She should be held accountable, too!”
“What did she think was going to happen!?”
My first tattoo(18th birthday present). I got a tribal lion head on my right calf. I thought the design was so beautiful and creative like myself. Not only am I a Leo zodiac, but the lion also represents power, loyalty, courage and strength, things I never thought I had before. But as I got older I started to realize my potential and this tattoo symbolizes my struggles and my power I have over my life.
