What do you get when you cross a sheep and a porcupine?

Nobody knows, but whatever it is, it knits its own sweaters!
If you ever find yourself questioning whether or not you're doing the right thing, stop. Because you are and you always have been, Zelda. Even if people don't agree with it, you've done everything with people's best interests at heart. And frankly, that's admirable. None of us really deserve someone as good as you on our side, but hell if I am going to complain about that.
You're a true hero, Zelda, completely worthy of the title of Legend that you have in my world. Nobody knows what's going to happen from here, but I am sticking to whatever you think is the right thing to do. My allegiance lies with you and it always will, for better or worse. Though I have no doubt that it will be "for better". Like there's basically no way that it can't be.
I don't mean for this to put any pressure on you though. I really hope I haven't stressed you out because that is the very last thing I want. You have your followers, people to support you in case you ever falter, which even the best and strongest leaders do. The situation is pretty heavy after all, it's dangerous to try and carry it all alone. But you probably already knew that, so I'm just preaching to the choir here.
I've sent out quite a few of these notes now. And the main purpose of all of them was to tell people not to give up. But I know it will be a cold day in Hell before Princess Zelda of all people gives up and lets the tower win. So I feel like I can safely skip that part with you. Instead, I can promise you that I won't give up, no matter how much darker it gets from here. And if I have my way, nobody else will either. So I guess, since I can skip on that, I will just end this on one, single point.
Don't forget how to smile. :)
