Rollin' Over Hyrule by JohnSu Rollin' Over Hyrule by JohnSu
Didn't insert any speech since I thought it would detract from the moment.

Anyhow, I was watching my roommate play Twilight Princess when I noticed he was doing the rolling thing. It occurred to me that Link spends a great majority of his adventures rolling across the land, so I decided to poke a bit of fun at that. My original idea was to have Zelda say, "Goodness Link! It looks as if you've been rolling across all of Hyrule!" but it felt kind of cheap to slap that on there and smother the joke.

I chose the character designs from Ocarina of Time since it's generally well established and more familiar with gamers at this time, and I really don't know what kind of situations occur in TP that could allow for this. But then again, I don't know much about OoT either. I'm sure a number of fans will tell me that you never meet adult Zelda in the garden or something.

Oh yeah, you might notice Link's fairy is a little...peculiar. Ideally he would be saying "I'm sorry for his appearance - I'm party responsible," but if I recall, the Prince is a silent protagonist like Link.

Well, back to digesting these dinner pancakes.

Dude, this is just too darn funny! :D Congrats! :D BTW why does that fairy look familar..............................OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH! That's why! Yeah I guess that's an interesting way to reference that game. It's funny too. I must have spent hours rolling in OoT, MM, WW and TP, but I am still absolutely amazed that almost nothing sticks to Link. Even the stuff that does never stays for very long. Maybe he keeps a hidden can of non-stick spray handy or something. Hmmm.

Heh heh! I like the joke you implemented from your roommate. (I also like the cucco on Link's head. I'm a fan of chickens. :meow: )

Is that.. from Katamari Damacy? Or am I crazy?

Great taste in video games. :3

I don't know which is harder; rolling a new moon, or saving Hyrule.

Link looks like he needs a shoulder to cry on. He should probably remove that Cucco and other animal first, though.

*Goes to bash Link into something bigger than him*

Rolling, rolling around! I do it all the time in Zeldas. It really is faster than running:D
