I’m reading zelda fic and I’m just so overwhelmed/happy reading Ganon’s POV again
this character is so dumb he’s sooooo powerful and clever and experienced, but he’s so easily manipulated; he’s got such remarkably hefty weaknesses; he’s got targets on his forehead he’s utterly blind to. he’s the worst decision-making wizard to ever suspend a castle in mid-air over molten lava and fill it with stalfos. oh my god he’s so dumb I love it so much BUT
but the best part, the part I love, THE MOST, is that nothing will ever, in 100,000 years, convince him to feel super bad about himself. He’s this endless fountain of self-love. to the point of me smiling while banging my head against the keyboard. Nothing could ever happen to him to get him to hate himself for any lasting length of time.
it’s a simple pleasure to read his pov, it’s a real true pleasure. just the constant flow of positive thoughts he has about himself should not be possible, but somehow is. He’s proud of himself and he will always be proud of himself, no matter what. he’s never won in his entire hundreds-years-long life, and he even remembers nothing but lifetimes full of losing, but each time he tries to get what he wants, he is completely sure that he will. He goes all-out! the positive spin is so intense.
I WANT TO LIVE THERE. I want to live with that kind of positive spin!!
bad guys with the kind of point of view I wish I had about myself, that alarming confidence that makes me jealous
villains as perfect self-love and bravery role models… I suppose they’ve been that way for me since I was very little…
