One Man's Awesome Zelda Christmas Adventure

Kotaku reader Mike didn't have any old Christmas. He had a Zelda Christmas, complete with a box, rupees and a Master Sword that Mike purchased from his sisters.

According to Mike:

It started with a box. In the box were a green hat and a satchel of rupees and a small note saying I could use the rupees to purchase an item from my sisters!

This item was The Master Sword! The sword had a new quest attached to it; defeat the beast in the laundry room!

The beast, of course, was my sisters' dog dressed in Christmas attire. After I slew the beast (with a good old scratch behind the ear) I noticed the key tied to his neck, with a note attached. The next quest! Explore the dungeon beyond the white door! This clearly meant the garage. I entered the garage, wondering what I could possibly find hidden in its darkness. I stumbled upon a large chest (a 100-year old treasure chest) and in classic Zelda style, bent down and opened it without a second thought. As I did, my sisters played the "open chest" jingle on their phones, a nice touch! And inside the chest was the Hylian shield, a bottle marked "XXX" and a potion bottle, both filled with mead!

I thought this would conclude my truly amazing Zelda present.... that was until I saw my girlfriend, Erin, who had something just as special waiting for me. I opened her present to find a Zelda pouch, containing an Ocarina she had custom-painted, and a book... a hand-bound, home-made, suede book. And in this book was aged paper with hand-drawn Ocarina tabs for all the Ocarina songs from the game. Each page beautifully decorated with love and care.


    From this far away the notes in the book look like hundreds of little penises. Superbad anyone?

    Still, clearly one of the best presents ever.

    I want people to love me as much as this! ;_;

    Is that a map of Skyrim in the chest?

      It is to!

        Had to check that one and it actually is. I turned my map upsidedown and matched that up to an area near solitude. that writing on the map should actually say Haafingar too.


    But still damn cool.

      Hahahaha my thoughts entirely.

    Definitely got more Zelda swag than myself, however I did get an Ocarina - thing is annoyingly hard to learn!

    Ya had me until you said "my girlfriend", then I knew it was all made up.
