There was going to be another comic before the last chapter ended, but it didn't quite work out. C'est la vie!
@artofjoe: About 11 or 12, just as old as Link.
@A Quiet Fan: Yep, the same! And that makes sense!
So in Breath of the Wild, I found that freakishly large horse whose mane and tail are the same color as a certain villain’s hair.

So I caught the horse and named him Gan-Gan. And now he can trample my enemies! (Once he stops trying to bite me, anyways)

And the fact that “Gan-Gan” looks a lot like “Gran-Gran” is just a bonus.
@Koal: No worries; it happens!
@Kunarion: Thank you! I'm happy to hear you are enjoying it :)
@Eeveeisthebest: Haha, not yet! Not nearly that far into the game yet. I bet it's something!
Comic 2 of 2 for today.

Last week while sick, I managed to finally play some Breath of the Wild (which is AWESOME), and I just love all the nutso things you can get Link to do. I already lost count of how many times I got him killed…poor blighter!
Comic 1 of 2 for today.

Thank you to everyone who wished me good health last weekend! I’m happy to report I’m feeling much better :)
@Florance: I've done (and still am doing) my mythology and anthropology courses and studies; I understand what you're discussing.

Anyways, since the Zelda games have a mix of so many different culture, myth, etc. influences, I figure it is up to each author of a fan project to decide how much to use or not use Judaeo-Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, or Shinto or other cultures/religions and their values that are alluded to at some point throughout the game series.

So in short, I've already done research on the religions and cultures involved in the game series and set up a framework for the religions in my Zelda fanwork, including the basic religious attitude towards sex, marriage, romance, fertility, etc. And you or other authors may do things very differently, drawing from certain values more than I do. But I've already made up my mind about the religious systems and values, and I don't plan on changing what I've set up; I'm sticking to my framework in order to make (hopefully) consistent decisions in my story. And that's all there is to it.

And just in case you're trying to start a debate of some kind (though you may not be), please know that any future attempt to strike up an argument will be ignored. It's not you; I decided a couple years ago to not get wrapped up in any online debates due to the time they tend to eat up, and I try to limit my time online for many reasons.
If you don't like how I'm doing things in my comic for any reason, I'm sure there are plenty of other comics that will meet your criteria :)
@Koal: Oh well! :)
@Florance: Growing up in a rural community, yep, he knows of it. However, how the information is shared/how it is treated/the attitude people have will vary based on each society, and then based on the town/region, and then based on the family. For instance, consider a non-religious Seattle 12-year-old in public school vs. a 12-year-old in an isolated and very religious village in, say, Nepal. They're both the same age, going through similar things, learning new things...but what they are taught/how they are taught/the attitudes of those around them will be different. Therefore, it is not necessarily the case that all 12-year-olds/middle schoolers in general "know all about sex."
And yes...I'm probably taking this much too seriously :) But as a writer I always try to not use our modern, 21st century secular Western expectations of behavior and knowledge as the default for societal norms/knowledge/etc. in all my stories. If all writers did that, stories would have very little variety in character/culture/etc.!
….I had a lot of fun drawing this one.

Happy Christmas Eve!
@WiispNightmare: So I knew you were referring to wolf puppies, but still the first thing that popped to my mind was "Oh my gosh if Link had one of those, that'd be REALLY WEIRD" XD
How Ganondorf isn’t choking him is beyond me. I mean, he's got his scarf and shirt both, so I guess that'd help, but still.
It’s probably like how wolves don’t choke their puppies when they carry them by the scruff: pure instinct.

Happy Hanukkah!
@Nevalone: Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm thrilled to hear you are enjoying it :)
And so ends the chapter!

And just a note that there will not be a comic this next week because I really need that time for (hopefully) finishing with cleaning up the older, messier strips and also doing planning for the upcoming dungeon’s appearance/layout. But we’ll be back to normal the week after!
Let's just say I learned a lot while trying to do those first two panels all in one day (today) and leave it at that. There's always next time!
@artofjoe: I started reading it, but I have yet to finish it. I will post a review when I'm done :)
I’m pretty sure they’ll just start calling him “Dork” soon when its just the two of them hanging out….we’ll see….

So a few days ago, I published my first (readable) novel, No Longer Hidden, on Amazon, and I am SO excited! If you like fairy tales, fantasy, romance, adventure, or Vikings (or maybe all the above), I hope that you take a look! (And it is registered with KDP, so it is FREE if you have Kindle Unlimited!)

You can find it here:

And while there isn’t a print version available yet, there should be one in a week or so. Print formatting is really odd…there is so much that can go wrong!

Have a great week, everyone!
