Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link. 

Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.

This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.

Hope you like it!

No one else has access to the world you carry around within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it. No one else can feel your life the way you feel it. Thus it is impossible to ever compare two people because each stands on such different ground. When you compare yourself to others, you are inviting envy into your consciousness; it can be a dangerous and destructive guest.

pls give me a franchise where, when a good female character turns evil, she is not immediately dressed in a bondage-inspired outfit that is 2 strips of leather and a thong and instead dresses in sensible jeans and combat boots and a comfy jacket because hello, evil agenda here, there’s no time to be objectified, world domination is priority

"Come to the Dark Side, we have pockets and sensible footwear."

Pockets you say?

yo this song was my jam

this movie makes me so happy, not just because of the religious aspect but also because I study Egyptology and the fact that they used the right pharaoh, his personality and all, and all the Egyptian gods always makes me fangirl. plus the music is kickass.

I mean, have you heard Plagues???

"Anyone who supports Palestine and/or uses the hashtag #freepalestine is just plain wrong and clearly only reads biased news" Any objective study of the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict illustrates very clearly that Israel has taken Palestinian land. The UN has stated that Israel does not have legitimate claim to the lands stolen in 1967, including Jerusalem. Palestinians have been forced out of their homes and into second-class citizenship. How is that just plain wrong?

First, please educate yourself with an objective history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Actually read all of it. Then decide for yourself.

Palestine did not start this. On May 15, 2014, two Palestinian teenagers were gunned down by Border Police in the West Bank. You know who the Border Police is, right? The Israeli Army. The kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens was in response to the deaths of the Palestinian boys. I will be clear: I do not condone revenge killings. But Palestine did not start this. From a July 16 article: 

turnuportransfer:

The Hamas are using their citizens as human shields. They are putting military bases in civilians areas and even using civilian homes as base camps. Not to mention the fact that PALESTINE started this by kidnapping and murdering three Israel teens.

Israeli incursions and killings were then stepped up [following the collapse of US-sponsored peace negotiations], including attacks on Palestinian civilians by armed West Bank settlers. In May, two Palestinian teenagers were shot dead by the Israeli army with barely a flicker of interest outside the country.

It’s now clear the Israeli government knew from the start that its own kidnapped teenagers had been killed within hours. But the news was suppressed while a #BringBackOurBoys campaign was drummed upand a sweeping crackdown launched against Hamas throughout the West Bank.

Did you know that Gaza City is the 40th most densely populated place in the world? All of Gaza is overcrowded. 1.6 million people are crowded into 146 square miles (for comparison, that’s about as dense as Philadelphia). There aren’t any safe places for Hamas to have their military bases. There are no places that are far enough way from civilians to ensure there will be no casualties. I believe Hamas is very militant, perhaps too militant, but Gaza has a right to defend itself when the world’s 4th largest military power is attacking them. What else are they going to do?

This is how much land Israel has taken from Palestine since the formation of the state of Israel in the 1940s. Palestinians are second-class citizens even within Palestine. In Palestine, Jewish settlements (illegal settlements) get full access to water, but water is restricted for Palestinians. This is known as water apartheid. That’s a crime against humanity. I’ve been to Israel and Palestine. I saw the water tanks on top of Palestinian homes. I saw the broken-down, dirt roads that Palestinians are forced to use in the West Bank, even as we were able to drive smoothly by on well-kept Israeli roads.

This is not a personal attack. This is me trying to correct your misconceptions. I was pro-Israel when I first visited Israel because I didn’t know anything different, because I’m from the US and we’re fed lies about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the moment we start school. But when I went to Israel and Palestine, I saw the injustices taking place there. Please do not close yourself off to learning more. We have to put an end to the massacre going on in Gaza. We must find peace. Free Palestine.

It is best in the end to let women see to their own vengeance.
