Why I Think the Dark Interlopers Could Be the Gerudo

First of all, a theory requires evidence. Without evidence, it is not even a theory, but a hypothesis, and even that requires some kind of thought. I would say this is just an idea. A fantasy, maybe.
There is proof of the Gerudo being tied to the interlopers. For instance, the events of LttP are strangely similar in that there was an invading force of thieves, followed by games in which there are not many/any Gerudo as a thriving people. TP's Gerudo Desert was completely deprived of the Gerudo tribe, a bit unnervingly, and LttP likewise did not feature the tribe at all.
The biggest supporting piece of evidence in the Gerudo/Twili theory (the well-informed one that isn't full of fan fiction and horrible ideas) is that in the cut scene where Zant is angsting out about not being the king of the Twili, he has the Gerudo symbol on his back. This would be normal (since Ganondorf possessed him) if it weren't for the fact that the symbol was on his back BEFORE he met with Ganondorf's wandering spirit. There is also a lot of evidence that says that the Twili are descendant of the Sheikah, but that's for a different day. I will mention that the Twili (only noticeable in Midna) have yellow eyes with red irises. Gerudo have yellow irises, and Sheikah have red ones, so it's kind of a mix between the two. The Twili "symbol", or maybe just their wall incriptions, also look pretty much dead-on like the Sheikah eye symbol. So hey, maybe they're both. Who knows?
But yeah this "theory" is way off the mark. Like, he probably wasn't even aiming for anything.

just said yup he's just like wrong
which is what we did
Why should I
something when the one who
proposed it provided no evidence and is obviously wrong?

i was tired ok
I keep waking up with like four hours of sleep. I've recently realized that I actually do suffer some NOTICEABLE COGNITIVE INTERFERENCE when I'm sleepy, and sometimes I do things that I look at later and I'm like `~` embarrassed. If I say anything that doesn't immediately click as correct or informed, please just ignore it. I'm probably sleepy. (The FORTRAN thing really was a low level language joke though ): no one loves me)
Scratch my thing about evidence. This is literally just fan fiction. You cannot provide evidence for or against a fan fiction, past saying "Well, this never actually happened and nothing exists that implied that this happened canonically so it isn't actually valid as a theory."
I'm fairly sure this person has only played Ocarina of TIme and Twilight Princess, also.
I honestly don't want to read the original post again, so I'll just take BoJangles' word for it and assume he said something about the Gerudo wanting to get the Triforce to improve the desert. Which is a good assertion, because in Wind Waker, Ganondorf did indeed say that that was his motive for trying to get the Triforce. But the rest of the story is bad fan fiction. :<

also we should learn fortran. As soon as I'm confident in Haskell. We should learn Haskell.
