“He’s lost and confused and probably very frightened...”
Ganon has no idea how Link changed Zelda’s disposition toward him with very similar reasoning. I suspect that Ganon will one day have to eat his own words when he finds himself in Malon’s position. And I also suspect that Link will be there, defending him again. :)

@Kunarion: We don't actually have proof that that did change Zelda's opinion of Gan just yet, only that Link doesn't believe her suspicions. Also, the situations leading to these defenses from Link are actually very dissimilar. With the defense from Zelda, Gan intercepted an attack on Link from Zelda, disabling it without pressing further aggression himself to defend Link, and Zelda's own hostility towards Gan didn't start until she shook hands with him and got a sense of 'evil' through the contact, which Link casually laughed off when she told him about it.

In contrast, Marron accused Link and Gan of crimes based purely on the fact that Ganon's Gerudo, and, while he was completely helpless to anyone in-universe's knowledge, put a pitchfork so close to Gan's neck that it pierced the skin and bled, not to mention being very unwilling to listen to their explanations. Since then she's done absolute bare minimum to make up for it and even gone so far as to try and manipulate Link into agreeing to do a job that Link knows they should being getting the aid of adult warriors for, especially when he personally knows that the mission is less about the horse and more about seeing how trustworthy Gan is. Even Link's defense of Marron is different than that of Gan - for Gan he laughed it off with casual ease, for Marron he can't make prolonged eye contact and is looking uncomfortable as heck. We're used to seeing Ganondorf in the wrong and Marron in the right, because he's the main villain and she's an ally, but that's really not the case at the moment.

@Tie-dyed Trickster: Right! It’s very similar and also very dissimilar. Whatever I suspect will happen are only my own speculations based on the connections I personally see. I appreciate your view point and am glad you took the time to engage me in mine. While I did mention a similarity between Link’s reasoning now and Link’s reasoning then, I agree that the situations are marginally different. I think what I’m talking about, or possibly just hoping for, is a future event, which may or may not happen, that will be more similar to this experience in which Ganon might be able to better understand the value of compassion. I’m definitely not saying Malon is right or that Ganon is always wrong but that I believe all of us need grace sometimes; I know I do. It’s certainly fun to speculate though, whatever happens, I’m sure it’s going to be good!

@Kunarion: I definitely agree with you about the needing of grace and compassion bit, and that whatever happens is going to be good! And I'm also with you in the hopes of Ganon learning some more compassion, since he's kind of a grumpy bean in general at the moment. For good reason, but I'd love to see him soften up some as he spends more time with Link and other people! (And apologies if I was too forceful/stiff/off-putting in my original post - I tried to be non-aggressive, but I'm not the best at that and unsure I succeeded. If I did not succeed, I apologize for that. I also appreciate your taking the time to respond to my response. :) )

Oops. I meant significantly different, not “marginally”. Wrong word, ha ha

@Tie-dyed Trickster: No apologies necessary! I just wasn’t expecting to be addressed by someone so passionate about the story. I’m relieved that you also seem to be very understanding. And it’s really nice to know that we’re enjoying this story together! I was a little concerned that whatever I said next might lead to an argument but I’m glad that’s not the case. There was nothing offensive about what you said and I’m truly thankful that you’re able to appreciate my view point as well. When I made my first comment, I realize how it might of come across as being insensitive or arrogant but I really meant it in a hopeful kind of way. I’ve definitely eaten a lot of humble pie in my life (praise God) and will probably continue to do so for the rest of it. And, if the result is humility and kindness, then I say every painful bite is worth it! Ganon a “grumpy bean”, ha ha, I have such a soft spot for him. Thanks again!

They're both making excuses. The difference is Ganon is against her while Link is for her.
