I have a question...what do you do when someone criticises you because of Link? What do you do when someone tells you he's just a game character? I've been feeling down without Zelda games overseas, and I've started to realise that Link is just from a game and he's not real....:(

Well, it's something that has happened throughout the years. My first encounter with Link was back when I was 7 years old, that would be 14 years ago from now. This was due to the fact both my parents were gamers, and it was my father who brought Ocarina of Time into the family one day, even though my mother was the main gamer.

I kept my love for Link a secret all elementary school (Primaria, in Mexico) and finally found  someone to talk about it till I was 10, a cousin who lived in another state and I visited on vacations. Videogames and having a crush over fictional characters was so common among my close family and the friends I made that no one ever criticized me or my preferences. While some people liked a character from Naruto, DBZ, Inuyasha, Saint Seiya other anime or other videogames back when I was 13, I loved Link. We all accepted each other.

Nowadays, as an artist in dA and tumblr, I simply try to not take anything personally. If someone says I'm crazy, or whichever adjective they wish to use to describe my relationship with Link, it doesn't bother me. Even if negative, it flatters me. What does annoy me is when people assume I should make Link like they see him or them, and make comparisons between their own and mine. When that happens, I do give an explanation to these people, just saying why Link is this way for me and not another, this with the objective of letting them know things won't change and that if they want Link to be their Link, they should write and draw their own work, not criticize on mine (Really, I'm an English teacher. So far, even when it is my passion to write and draw, it has been no more than a hobby due to personal issues)

During the first years of my career, I wrote about 5 different essays about Link. Yes, professional essays, and they were perfectly accepted by my instructors and teachers. One was in Japanese, one in French, about 2 in Spanish and one in English. I probably even forgot some; they could have been more.

Added to all of this, I work on my own books and plan on publishing next year-- that alone is time consuming. I'm a busy guy.

Overall, what people say does not affect me. Take that from a guy who can wear both girl's and guys clothing as he pleases just because he likes it (I even have wedged shoes). My love for Link is unconditional, but what I don't tolerate are people who have the guts to tell me what to do about my work as if they paid me.

Hope this answers your question! :peace:

Oh! Thank you so much :) I did not know how busy you were, I'm sorry to have troubled you with my numerous comments XD And yes, this answers my question very well (I just wish I could've had gamer parents though!) :D

What made you interested in teaching languages? Or why did you become interested in languages? :D

I got interested in teaching languages due to the few knowledge of english people have in my country.
Then, I got interested in more languages because a language is the main way to understand other cultures. One of my goals is to learn as many languages as posible so I can gain wisdom from other ways of living; other people.

Totally random... When you changed your screenname, the message in my watch messages said TwilightDarkMage has changed HER name. Did you change your gender on here too or what? I'm not trying to be mean, just wondering...

I changed my gender by mistake when I was modifing my settings. I noticed it until someone else told me the same thing you did, haha. It's fixed now : )

Ok, just wondering considering some of your later journal posts. It wouldn't surprise me, but I still totally didn't expect it<3

Yeah, I hate when I make those kinds of mistakes. Mostly because people won't let you live them down. I guess it's to be expected from people who spent their time on the internet though. They've got nothing better to do, so they torment over every little thing...

I'm actually glad people asked me about that little issue, 'cause I didn't realize I changed that information.

Well, yes of course, in this instance. What I was complaining about is how some people will keep bugging you and bugging you over the littlest things. I guess I'm the only one with that problem, and it happens to me more in real life anyways. WAY to random for me to bring up here :blush:
