** Leaving her in the past at least ensures that the heroes know where she is and that she won't be able to go anywhere else without Nayru in the same time period. Bringing her back to the present runs the risk of her possessing Nayru again and using her power to travel through a different point in Labrynna's history, where Link and Ralph won't know where she is.

** Ralph stays in the past until the sixth dungeon is completed (Nayru brings him to the Present along with herself and Link after Veran possesses Ambi). After that point, he can presumably travel between the ages freely as Nayru is with him.

**Veran created an endless day, making the workers work non-stop. They day itself never ended but people still felt the flow of time (hence why the post man knew he had to make deliveries). People were upset at their loved ones being away so long (and in some cases being dragged away) to work on the tower. It changed from the symbol of a heartbroken queen's hope for her lover into a tyrant's symbol of oppression and forced labor.

** Likely the same way Maple did.

[[folder:Ralph is a Scrappy?]]
* Ralph, from Oracle of Ages, is listed on the Video Games page as TheScrappy in legend of Zelda. This is a case of YMMV, but how is Ralph annoying? He only shows up a couple of times in the game, and when he does, he only says a few lines before running off.
** It's probably because of what makes him similar to Mido or Groose. The problem (I'm assuming, based on what I know) is that they both overcome their hero complexes and rivalries with Link fairly early on in the game, with Mido just hanging out in Kokiri Forest after that and Groose actively helping Link out where he can. Whereas Ralph (I think) takes a bit longer to accept Link's role as the hero, and even when he does, he still rushes blindly off into danger afterward that would be best left for Link to handle.

[[folder: Veran's plan]]
* Forgive me if I've missed something - I've only just started the game - but Veran's plan in ''Oracle of Ages'' seems a bit confusing to me. She possesses Nayru and travels back through time, where she manages to hijack a heartbroken queen, convincing her to use an endless day to...build a tower, which somehow will cause enough sorrow and despair to bring Veran's goal to fruition? Not only does that not make much sense (to me), but why does Veran bother with something so specific in the first place?

[[folder: When you wish upon a triangle...]]
* So Impa was sent by Zelda to collect the two Oracles and bring them to Hyrule, where they'd be safe from danger. But the Triforce is inside Hyrule Castle as of both games' beginnings - why not just use it to ''wish'' them there and save Impa and Link all the trouble?

[[folder: Rosa and Crescent Island]]
* In a linked gamed from Seasons to Ages, Rosa first appears in the past version of Crescent Island even though she is from the present. How did she get into the past?

*** But Ralph has a habit of showing up, saying something, and then running off before anyone can try to talk him out of it. He's a bit of a LeeroyJenkins like that, so even if Link wanted to say "Dude, Mystery Seeds and Switch Hook", Ralph has run off screaming "NAYRU!!!". And by the time Link knows that Ralph has RoyalBlood and is about to run facefirst into the GrandfatherParadox, Ralph has already run off into the Black Tower. The next time Link sees Ralph is the first time anyone actually gets to talk to Ralph, and it's Veran, who has good reason to not reveal her weakness, doing the talking. The only time I remember that Link is really implied to say anything to Ralph is right before entering the palace, when the question of how Ralph knows about the secret passage comes up, and even that might just be from a strange look.
