My great-great-grandmother’s portrait hung in the university up until the Revolution. By then, the truth of their romance had been reduced to a simple fairy tale. And, while Cinderella and her prince did live happily ever after, the point, gentlemen, is that they lived.
Can I say something? I don’t wanna be the Supreme.
I’m the hero of this story. I don’t need to be saved.
I just want to add that I honestly cannot stress enough how great and important of a character Anna is. Yes, Elsa’s story is just as tragic and just as hard as Anna’s, and Elsa is an important addition to the Disney franchise because she’s a symbol of depression and anxiety and all that jazz. I know and I completely agree. But let’s not forget to also praise Anna for being the badass, headstrong but genuinely sweet and optimistic Disney Princess that she is. To me she is the perfect mix of all the previous princesses we all know and love. She’s innocent like Snow White, a hopeless romantic like Ariel, headstrong like Belle, tough like Mulan, and so on. The best thing about her though is her optimism, her ability to never lose hope. This girl has had an incredibly sad and lonely upbringing, but that didn’t make her cold or bitter or angry. Her love and passion for the world and for the people she loves has never faltered. She never gives up. Despite Elsa closing her off her entire life, Anna still loves her sister so unconditionally that she literally gave her life up for her. She sets off on a dangerous journey to find Elsa, not having any idea where she even went. And she never backs down along the way. Yes, she has her flaws, like trusting people like Hans much too quickly and easily, but at the end of the day that just goes to show how desperate she is for love, and how open her heart is to the idea of it. And even when he completely destroys her idea of the “epic, perfect love”, she still opens her heart to Kristoff and saves her sister’s life in the meantime. All the awards for Princess Anna.
I always start to think when I hear or see this line. Yes, It’s possible that Anna is saying she won’t judge Kristoff for crying merely because she’s just a cool, non-judgemental girl who wants people to feel comfortable. But then it makes me wonder… I personally think she says she won’t judge him for crying, because she knows all too well what it’s like to cry. To feel such emotion that you can’t help but shed tears. This girl has hard a very sad, lonely upbringing obviously, what with her sister who she loves so much and so unconditionally shutting her out and ignoring her for her entire life, then both of her parents tragically dying. Only to have to mourn all alone because Elsa wouldn’t talk to her or leave her room. Anna knows sadness, she knows tears and what it’s like to wanna cry. So she won’t judge if you want to cry.
