What if Ganondorf and Link were... closer?

It was fun to see how the internet reacted to speculation that Link in the next Zelda for Wii U might be a woman. The response was very similar to how I imagined the world might respond to a Blasian Link. When it was revealed that Link was definitely a dude, many were disappointed, while others breathed a sigh of relief. Either way, the feelings were intense. 

One thing is for sure: the new Link is darn pretty, perhaps the prettiest Link in the history of pretty Links. That prettiness is bound to inspire some feelings. There is a reason why gender-swap fan art or cosplay of Link is so popular. A lot of self identified heterosexual males clearly have some repressed attraction to our lovely green-clad hero. Making him a "girl" gives them permission to feel that lust and while maintaining a hetero self image. 

Likewise, making Link and Ganondorf more than friends allows for some highly lusty permissions. This fan art from @mmimmzel has a lot of men and women of any and every sexual preference feeling hot under the collar. Mmimmzel's fantasies of a Link/Ghirahim pairing got nowhere near as much attention. Neither did 's handsome Linebeck or Link-on-Link pairing

How would you feel if the next Zelda game had a PG-13 Ganondorf/Link/Zelda love triangle?
