Oh. My. God. You have no idea how long I've wanted to make this comic. I've honestly wanted to comment on this for years but I couldn't figure out how to present it, for one thing there was certainly no way I could do it in 4 panels. Not to mention that drawing any comic is just very time consuming and difficult.
But anyway, I have always found the time skip in Ocarina of Time to be hilariously illogical. Okay, so Link can't be the hero of time until he's an adult? Alright, well I suppose we should train him and prepare him for the day he becomes hero--no? Just gonna put him to sleep? O....Kay?
This whole situation is made all the more hilarious by the fact that because Rauru opened up the door of time to put Link into suspended animation Ganondorf managed to just waltz in there and steal the triforce. Good job Rauru! You doomed the world for no good reason! Even if there's some arbitrary magic reason that Link couldn't use the master sword until he was an adult, I doubt his mind changed at all while he was asleep, so it makes it feel like putting him to sleep was unnecessary. Like if you're going to wait around for 7 years for him to wake up anyway why not skip the sleeping step entirely and at least train him for 7 years instead? Save the boy his childhood and a lot of shock?
It's also a good thing Link was already a very smart and capable child, because otherwise having a hero that's a child's mind in the body of an adult might have been a little troublesome. It's kinda hilarious to imagine Link like that. XD
Anyway, I spent a long time actually trying to figure out what character to use to confront Rauru. Link can't talk, and I suppose I could have used Navi, but I went with Ruto literally just because I wanted to draw Ruto. XD And also because people tend to portray her as stupid, and I personally don't think that's the case, she seems like a rather clever women to me. Rather bratty, yes, but clever.
