I dont (yet) have access to my own feature over here: http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-...-princess.html but cant have helped notice the amusing discussion over Link's race from my rather off the cuff remark.
So, in answer:
I dont say "Link is an elf" - I say (and if you allow me to quote myself ) "the elf-heavy franchise". Slim semantic difference, but a difference no less. Fellow poster, Taero, got it spot on when s/he says: "Or...perhaps...you know, the OP could be having a joke on the fact that Hylians ears resemble that of elfs/elves/whatever? This doesn't mean he actually believes Link to be an elf, sheesh."
Indeed. I'm being tongue-in-cheek, because it's pretty clear Hylians are based off elves - they may not BE elves per se, but they're certainly elfish (not to be confused with 'elven' ). The pointy ears and ability to hear the Gods via them better than 'typical' beings tend to be a giveaway and all And no, he most certainly isnt an fairy - especially seeing as there are other fairies in the franchise who clearly mark themselves as such and totally different from the elfish (ha) Hylians.
So I hope that clears things up. Or at least gets the discussion over at the article past the issue
Thanks for reading, as always.
