Since this is a Zelda thread .... hope this goes here ...(if it doesn't sorry)

I'm in the process of writing one ... or actually trying to finish it. My question is, should I keep it first person (from Links p.o.v.) or change it to a third person. I like it in first person, but that means that I have to switch to third when I change to the "baddies".

Help please?

There's nothing really wrong with switching from first person for Link's POV stuff and then third person for baddies stuff, so long as you don't get confused and keep it consistent. Sticking to first or third person throughout would also be perfectly valid, though; I don't really mind reading either. First person does sometimes seem more inclined to become a bit Mary Sueish, though.

I guess saying "do whatever you want" doesn't really help you much... Sorry!

Third person seems to be better...

Edit: Sorry, I read it wrong!
