What is The Hero of Time Saga going to be like?

The Hero of Time Saga is an animated series that portrays the games The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, and possibly even events that come after that depending on it's success. It will not follow the original storyline of those games, however. I've been meaning to create a twist to the original story.
You see, it's not called "The Legend of Zelda" for a reason. This story won't be a story passed down by the royal family, this story will be told from the Hero of Time's perspective. This is the reason why the teaser starts out with Link telling what happened.
According to the very first interview back in 1998, Miyamoto claimed Link to be around 7-8 years old in Ocarina of Time, which would make sense because in Japan you're considered to be an adult around the age of 14-15. But even in an adult's body, he still has the mind of a 7-8 year old.
It's hard to imagine that Link was able to keep his sanity through both games. Heck, even an adult in such reality would lose his sanity, Triforce of Courage or not. The Hero's Shade from Twilight Princess (as we all know is confirmed to be the Hero of Time) proves he never lost his sanity. Because even after Majora's Mask, he came up with a plan to help out the Hero of Light. So how did he remain his sanity?
Navi and Tatl have been beside him during his adventures, but truth is they both seem to be somewhat awful partners. Both really just function as guides to the game; one being annoying, the other being rude.
So because we can't have Link end up as some kind of psychopath, I've been meaning to add a non-canon character in the series to serve some emotional support and to implement more lore to the story.
This same character will help solve things in the games that seem incorrect to the story from a logical perspective. For example; the Song of Storms paradox, or the fact that you can undo 7 years of a coma by just putting the Master Sword back in the pedestal.

I never meant to recreate the story just as it is, I mean even the mangas don't do that. But if I were to do that, everybody already knows what's going to happen and the lack of surprise would make it seem rather dull. This gives me more opportunity to surprise those that are known with the lore. Consider the story to be from an alternate universe.

Thanks for reading!
