Angela Carter said we love Marilyn Monroe because she looks like, if we grabbed her, she would bruise.  Take that for what you will when you consider everyone’s favorite blond duo: Link and Zelda.  They’ve got that “would like cute together” and/or “look like brother and sister thing” that we learned the hard way from Luke and Leia (eww, incest kiss), and part of that is definitely their matching elven features, their long blond hair.

We’re not even going to start on what it might mean for a hero to be blond in this day and age, given our perception of blond women.  Instead, let’s talk about Twilight Princess and those speckles of brown that have worked their way into our heros’ once golden locks. Unacceptable!  After he gets out of the water, Link’s hair is practically brown.  What is the world of pure-bred young boys who end up saving the kingdom coming to?

    No way, I love brunettes though. For my money, I’d rather see a doe-eyed Zelda with deep mahogany locks.

    I’m a brunette man myself. I like my women to be not so bruise-able.

    Damn, subtext.

    That’s more than a little silly, but I always thought MM was over-rated anyway.
