Merida

Also asked by whatever-floats-your-goat

Favorite thing about her?

B: She has a lot of character and great hair. So much energy in one person!
R: Her headstrong personality, her love and pride for herself, her character design, her accent!

Least favorite thing about her?

B: She’s pretty reckless and not that great a communicator.
R: That exactly. I actually didn’t like Merida very much at all the first time I saw the film, solely because my relationship with my mother is so different from hers. Because of that, the film rubbed me the wrong way because I thought Merida was being really disrespectful towards Elinor, despite being perfectly justified in certain decisions. I really like her now, however!

Do I like her movie?

B: Yes, but not too much. I only saw it once, and I’m not exactly itching to see it again.
R: I do! Pixar did a great job, as always, and the mother-daughter dynamics of the film were really nicely laid out and portrayed. There was a lot of growth on both Merida and Elinor’s part.

Favorite outfit she wears?

B: I like her green dress (not the one her mother makes her wear, the other one).
R: The dark green dress with puffy sleeves!

Favorite song from her movie?

B: Um. I don’t remember any?
R: The lovely song when she goes mountain climbing!

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: Her brothers are totally adorable. Her horse also seems pretty cool; Disney always does interesting horses.
R: The brothers for sure! The triplets were adorable and exhausting to watch, and their bear forms were so cute, too!

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

B:  Her stubbornness. I can be pretty stubborn; it’s one of my less attractive traits…
R: That’s a lie because B has no unattractive traits. As for me, I think I can really relate to Merida’s need to justify/fight for herself. I don’t like arguments, but I will defend myself and argue for things that I believe in.

How would I rate her prince?

B: She doesn’t have one! And that’s the point! Yay!
R: Yes! Although I will admit I’m a fan of the Big Four crossovers, hahaha!

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?:

B: I like her, but I don’t tend to think of her when I rank princesses, much like Rapunzel.
R: I also don’t really think of Merida when I rank princesses… It might be because she’s newer, and also because she’s Pixar.

Elsa

Finals, etc. are over so we’re finally getting back to that ask meme!

Elsa was also asked by three Anonymice…

Favorite thing about her?

B: Her love for her family.
R: I have a lot of thoughts and feelings regarding Elsa, and the film “Frozen” in general (not all of them good). I think what I like best about her is the fact that she really loves her sister.

Least favorite thing about her?

B: Her lack of confidence in herself.
R: The fact that she thought running away from her problems rather than facing them head-on would be a good, thorough, painless solution for herself, her sister, and her kingdom. Running away and leaving her sister behind, alone with strangers, was supremely selfish.

Do I like her movie?

B: Yes, but not too much.
R: It was alright. I enjoyed myself a lot watching it, but I felt as though it had a lot of issues in the way the story was crafted.

Favorite outfit she wears?

B: I like her coronation gown. The ice dress is pretty cool, too.
R: The ice gown for sure! It’s so sexy and really beautiful and glittery :D

Favorite song from her movie?

B: ‘Let It Go.’ Also ‘Fixer Upper.’
R: “Love is an Open Door” and “Fixer Upper”! Because both are really catchy.

Favorite animal (or human) friend she has?

B: OLAF. I love Olaf. R is going to play off like she thinks he’s cool, too. But she totally hated him until she saw the movie. Don’t judge until after you’ve seen everything!
R: B KNOWS ME SO WELL. Olaf’s character design LITERALLY repulsed me for the longest time! But he was a great character, very sweet and quirky, and I got to be very fond of him :)

Which trait of her personality do I most see in myself?

BOccasionally I too wish to run up a mountain to avoid scary responsibilities in my life.
R: My love for my siblings.

How would I rate her prince?

B: She doesn’t have one and it’s great!
R: HELLA.

Where does she rank on my top 10 favorite princesses?

B: Elsa’s a queen! But I don’t know where I’d put her. Her character design and visual effects are some of my favorites.

R: I wouldn’t say she’d rank very high on my list at all, to be honest. That’s really due to personal reasons, however, so I’m a little biased.
