Guys, OoT and ALttP are pretty much the same story but with a few changes. I would therefore say that yes, ignore the official timeline in this case. ALBW is basically a retcon of ALttP in a lot of respects, already. In terms of the sages all I can say is, OoT and ALttP's versions are pretty much interchangeable, so pick whichever version you prefer of the story of the sages and then just mentally make ALBW the sequel to either game. Then things make a lot of sense.
