GeneralA Quick Question on Linking. Pin

This is going to get really confusing. Sorry in advanced.
I understand what static and dynamic Linking are, and how they works, but one point that confuses me is:

Does linking work in just one direction, or does it always work in both.

Let me clarify. If I write some code that uses the C Standard Library, we would of course say that I am linking to it. However, would you also say that the C Standard Library links to my code, even if it doesn't use anything I wrote?

One way
--------
Code X uses Code Y, therefore Code X links to Code Y.
Code Y does not use Code X, therefore Code Y does not link to Code X.

Two way
---------
Code X uses Code Y, therefore Code X links to Code Y.
Code Y does not use Code X, but Code X uses to Code Y, therefore Code Y links to Code X.


If Linking is Two Way, then is there a proper term for when one work uses another work. I think it would be something like "subroutine call", but I'm not sure how much that covers.

Again, sorry for any confusion. Thanks for your help.
