Gamer Proposes To His Boyfriend With A Little Help From “Legend Of Zelda”

He definitely leveled up.

Take James Beach, whose boyfriend proposed with an adorable series of illustrations celebrating their adventures together—including their shared love of gaming and Legend of Zelda (there’s even a shoutout to “Song of Storms.”)

“He threw a surprise 30th birthday party for me in our favorite bar last night,” James explained on Reddit.

“All of our best friends were present, and his whole family flew in from the opposite coast. I opened this amazing gift full of cute hand drawings representing our various adventures together, and at the end he’s down on one knee.”

Too sweet for words.
