What if Ganondorf and Link were... closer?

Slash fan art burns up the charts

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?
