Rapunzel has spent her life locked in a tower, but that’s not her only secret. Her long, golden hair has magical powers–all 70 feet of it! When the kingdom’s most-wanted bandit unexpectedly stumbles into Rapunzel’s tower, the pair embark on a fantastic journey that will uncover more than they ever expected.

Into the Woods: Rapunzel [ISFJ]

UNOFFICIAL TYPING by rose-merida

Introverted Sensing (Si): Rapunzel likes living in the tower but she would like to have some more company, other than her “mother”’s. She appreciates her “little world” but she can’t help but being curious about the world. She’s dutiful and never disobeys her mother until the Prince comes and shows her new possibilities, still she doesn’t simply run away from the tower with him, she spends time with him during his daily visits. Once she’s outside, particularly in the swamp (desert in the musical) she misses her home in the tower and later when the kingdom is destroyed, she runs away in fear back to her destroyed tower. In the musical, she’s terrified because of the world’s darkness and she’s also quite passive, letting her mother and later her Prince decide for her at times.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): What Rapunzel wants the most is company and to be loved. She’s delighted when her mother brings blackberries (her favorite fruit) to her, and she falls in love with the Prince because he’s caring and tender to her. She’s very sensitive and expresses her emotions openly, by crying when she’s upset, for instance. She feels sorry for not telling her mother about her visitor but she also wishes her mother would understand her. In the movie, she’s strong enough to stand up to her mother fearlessly (despite she defended her Prince quicker), unlike in the musical. In the musical, once the Witch has broken the curse, she’d like to please her and come with her but she fears her abuse so she ultimately leaves her. Her mother’s abuse makes her go mad (as well as the fact that she wasn’t ready for the world) and is the reason why she ends up crushed by the Giant.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Rapunzel is very curious and wonders about the world outside the tower. She was able to survive in the swamp on her own (in the desert in the musical; moreover she was able to give birth to twins and take care of them in such a hostile environment). In the movie, she was able to go back to her tower after the earthquake despite she’d only been outside in the woods once.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): Rapunzel doesn’t want to leave her tower until her Prince appears; she just accepts she’s locked because of her safety and then the Prince shows her a new possibility. Once she’s in the outside, she realizes it’s not what she thought it would be and she wishes to go back to the tower, then to escape the kingdom. She clearly wasn’t ready for the world given that she spent her entire life sheltered in the tower.

♔ Happy International Women’s Day! (March 8th) ♔

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh

Tutti conosciamo le favole della disney, ma non tutti sanno che queste favole vennero scritte dai fratelli Grimm molti anni prima, e che avevano riservato a queste storie finali ben diversi dal classico “lieto fine” che ci accompagna da sempre.

Biancaneve, ad esempio, si sveglia quando il pezzo di mela incastrato in gola si sposta.
Come nella storia originale, si innamora di un principe e lo sposa. Ma alle nozze si imbuca la strega che aveva chiesto al cacciatore cuore, fegato e polmoni di Biancaneve per mangiarli, la strega viene scoperta e costretta a ballare indossando scarpe di ferro arroventate, finché non cade a terra e muore.

In cenerentola per poter indossare la scarpetta, le sorelle si tagliano le dita dei piedi e l'odore del sangue attira degli uccelli che gli stappano via gli occhi e, costrette a scappare, diventano delle mendicanti cieche.

In Rapunzel,  c'è una coppia di coniugi che abita vicino al giardino di una strega. Il marito ruba dei raperonzoli dal giardino e la strega chiede in cambio la figlia. La figlia nasce e viene rinchiusa nella torre senza porte, l'unico modo per salire è  usare i lunghissimi capelli di raperonzolo. Un giorno un principe passa e sente il canto della ragazza, se ne innamora, sale nella torre usando lo stesso metodo che usa la strega e si dichiara. Decidono di sposarsi e scappare, e lui la mette incinta. La strega lo scopre, taglia la treccia a raperonzolo, e la abbandona nel deserto. Inganna il principe e lo fa salire con la treccia tagliata, lo spinge giù dalla torre e finisce su dei rovi, che lo fanno diventare cieco. Per anni vaga dal bosco al deserto, dove risente il canto di raperonzolo che lo guarisce con le sue lacrime. Una volta guarito, scappano con i due gemelli nel regno del principe.

Nella “bella addormentata nel bosco”, mentre sta dormendo, un re la mette incinta. Quando si sveglia, la verità viene a galla, e la moglie del re si arrabbia, così tenta di mangiare i due bambini. Il re, però, da fuoco a sua moglie,
Nella sirenetta, la strega del mare concede le gambe alla sirenetta in cambio della voce tagliando le la lingua, anche se camminare sarà come essere trafitta dai coltelli. Se la sirenetta riesce e a sposare il principe riuscirà a restare umana e vivere, altrimenti diventerà schiuma marina, come sappiamo tutti. Ma il principe sposa un'altra. Il giorno delle nozze viene proposto alla sirenetta di uccidere il principe con un pugnale magico della strega del mare e di cospargere i piedi col sangue del principe,  così da tornare una sirena. Ma lei si rifiuta e muore.

Scioccante, no?

DISNEY RAINBOW MEME: Seventh and Final Colour » Violet

Violet stimulates the imagination and inspires high ideals. It is an introspective color, allowing us to get in touch with our deeper thoughts. It relates to the fantasy world, and a need to escape from the practicalities of life. It is the daydreamer escaping from reality. The colour violet inspires unconditional and selfless love, devoid of ego, encouraging sensitivity and compassion. It likes to be unique, individual and independent, not one of the crowd.”

DISNEY RAINBOW MEME: Sixth Colour » Indigo

Indigo is the colour of intuition and perception and is helpful in opening the third eye. It reflects great devotion, wisdom and justice along with fairness and impartiality. It is a defender of people’s rights to the end. Powerful and dignified, indigo conveys integrity and deep sincerity.  Indigo loves rituals and traditions, conforming to things that have worked in the past while planning for the future.” Thank you to those of you who helped me find indigo scenes!

DISNEY RAINBOW MEME: Fifth Colour » Blue

Blue is sincere, reserved and quiet, and doesn’t like to make a fuss or draw attention. This is a colour that seeks peace and tranquility above everything else. Blue also reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order. Change is difficult for blue. It is inflexible and when faced with a new or different idea, it considers it, analyzes it, thinks it over slowly and then tries to make it fit its own acceptable version of reality.”

Innocence || Alice and Rapunzel

Alice walked around the park where she first met Rapunzel, but this time she walked in-between more of a shaded area. She had her headphones on, blasting her favourite song on repeat, it was Claire de Lune; Soft and Delicate to the ears.  Her eyes glanced around clouded, it was two days since her encounter with the man who haunted her mind ever since. Only the thought made her weak, she was glad she found the perfect spot soon enough and let herself fall in the soft grass.

She pulled out her sketchbook and as she laid on her stomach she started drawing. It was sketchy, her portrait but some parts had detail. Like his fangs that pierced her skin and those eyes that she watched so attentively. Her breath slowed down as her pencil slid over the thin paper, her eyes turning dreamy. She was totally gone in her own little world, not even noticing someone approaching her.
