the writing isn't perfect but End On A High Note just finished and you should give it a chance
concept: zelda auditions for the musical at her boarding school; zelda falls in love with her best friend midna; zelda has anxiety
i've been reading https://archiveofourown.org/works/15049127 lately and it has done an amazing job; if you like the setting of BotW check it out
concept: basically, Link and Zelda's roles are switched; suddenly everything makes way more sense; also she has a lesbian travel companion who maybe has a major crush on her
a young hylian boy dressing up like a woman in order to infiltrate a guarded city to speak with their child matriarch and gain their support in regaining control of a massive ancient machine?
that *IS* weird. it's okay to acknowledge that weirdness and play light with the fact.
"weird" doesn't mean "bad" tho lol. and that's something i think our multicultural neoliberal asses sometimes forget.
and i don't think this is something which translates well to American culture at all. American culture tries to stick a moral component to everything. it sees weirdness and says "is this good or bad??" if someone is strange in a work of art, there must be a statement being made about social norms. laughter is not a form of acceptance but a dismissal.
like yes, anime and nintendo games will be all like "crossdressing! that's weird! funny!", but after the initial humour wears off, you still have real people living their real lives as a crossdresser as an accepted presence in the work
and it is just sort of understood that these people exist, not everyone fits the norm, and you can laugh at things you don't understand but it's not something you need to change?
okay i am enjoying this new OVERWERK long track
