It never ceases to amaze me the lengths some people will go to when they propose. This is probably one of the geekier proposals I have seen although I still think the Super Mario Bros proposal is still the best geeky marriage proposal of all time. Anyway, here is a bit of this super geeky and very romantic proposal. You can find the rest of the story in the source link at the bottom of the post. Congrats to the happy couple!
We had been playing the original Legend of Zelda on an emulator the previous weekend. (My fiance owns the original NES cartridge too, but the emulator makes hacking easier.) A few nights before, he and his roommate finished it, so he asked if I wanted to do the second quest. I said sure, so he turned on the computer and I started playing. When I entered the cave with the old man, (who normally says “It’s dangerous to go alone. Take this!”) who gives you a sword, it instead said what you see in the picture above. I looked over at my fiance; he was kneeling and holding a heart container (8-bit!) made out of Legos. The ring was inside. Obviously I said yes! We decided to do a simple band for now. It’s a beautiful and shiny tungsten carbide ring so it won’t scratch. Amusingly, he hacked the game so that if I tried to go left, right, up, or down, I would end up at the same screen with the cave. There’s also no exit/door to get out of the cave once you enter it. Clearly, a “No” answer was not an option!
Pass this along to any Legend of Zelda fans and hopeless romantics you know. Like us on Facebook too!
