Compliments [Requested by @noneoftheabove9998

6 “Danggg you look hot in that shirt—I mean is it cold in here? Wait what cold? I meant hot. Holy crap you look amazing.”

(Y/N) was never one of the princesses who was showered with attention and compliments. Not like Audrey. She wished she was though, she wished she had someone to compliment her on how she looked, even if she was wearing shorts or something un-princess-like. When the four kids from the Isle came to Auradon Prep, (Y/N) had her suspicions but she had never been one to judge too quickly. That was something she had unfortunately developed from her mother, Snow White, you know, the princess who took the apple from a stranger not knowing it was her evil stepmother in disguise. Evie, that was the only one that would have to work hard for her trust, prove to her she wasn’t her mother and wasn’t going to poison her the first chance she got.

Fortunately, the VKs pulled through, in the end, rendering Maleficent to a tiny lizard and saving Auradon for at least a little while until the next problem came up. Unfortunately for (Y/N), she was still lonely and complimentless. Evie was getting lots of attention for her clothing she was making, and Mal was getting lots of attention from girls to get their hair done.

(Y/N) had nothing against the girls, after proving they weren’t their parents she actually took to approached the group of four and introducing herself. “Hi, I don’t think I ever introduced myself to you guys. I’m (Y/N) White, Snow White’s daughter,” she turned to Evie, giving her a bright smile, “I adored the dress you wore at Ben’s Coronation. Do you think you could give me some tips?” Evie was obviously stunned at her reaction, seeing as Mal hadn’t had the best experience with her hero counterpart. “Yeah, sure. You can swing by our dorm anytime.”

(Y/N) had nothing against the boys either, for that matter. She thought of Carlos as her little brother, since she didn’t have any siblings, younger or older, to talk with. Jay, well he was a different story.

(Y/N) could see Jay being the guy she got compliments from. The one that told her she looked amazing without makeup, or she looked normal in a t-shirt, shorts, and tennis shoes. Of course, that was a silly little fantasy that (Y/N) could end up dreaming about for days if she wanted to.

She was a cheerleader. She thought that would get people to compliment her more, but Audrey was Cheer Captain and the other girls, including her, were soon forgotten. It did give (Y/N) an excuse to be at Tourney practices and games to see Jay, even if it was a little stalker-esque.

Cheerleaders always crowded Jay before and after games, giving (Y/N) no time to talk to him or a chance to let him see the new dress Evie had made her. To show him he was accepting of his friends and she was a relatively nice girl to get along with.

She realized soon enough she’d never get the time of day from the former Isle thief. From the boy who stole her heart without him even knowing it. She was tragically in love with this boy who’d she’d never even spoken to, to the boy she imagined compliments to come by the dozen from.

Why couldn’t she just go up to him? What was stopping her? She really didn’t know, she had never had any problems going up to a stranger before. Maybe it was the fact she knew them know, they weren’t exactly strangers to her, and she would like to say she was good friends with Mal, Evie, and Carlos, she just couldn’t call herself a friend of Jay’s.

She had just changed back from her cheer uniform when she caught sight of Jay walking in her direction. At first, she thought nothing of it, there were seven other cheerleaders in the same vicinity as her.

She started walking back to her dorm, fully content with the idea she could change out of the stiff dress into a comfy pair of sweatpants and a t-shirt. “(Y/N)! Wait up!” Jay called out behind her, causing her to halt in her steps as she turned to look at him.

“You need something, Jay?” She asked in the sweetest, calmest voice she could muster up at the moment. He nodded his head.

“I need you to teach me how to talk to girls. Like how to compliment them and tell them you like them and stuff,” he rubbed the back of his neck in a nervous manner as if she was going to reject the idea.

“I don’t see why not. Come on, I was going to my dorm anyway, you can join me,” Jay fell into step beside her and traveled with her as she headed to the dorm room she shared with Rapunzel’s daughter, Ruby.

“I’m going to change really fast so you just stay right here,” she sat him on her bed, “and I’ll be back.” She grabbed the first t-shirt on top of the pile and a pair of sweatpants and walked into the bathroom. After changing she tied up her hair in a messy bun and walked back into the bedroom area. Jay sat on her bed where she left him, except he was on his phone now, scrolling through his multiple social media apps.

She stepped in front of him with her hands on her hips waiting until he looked up from his phone. It didn’t take long for him to notice the girl standing in front of him, and he almost seemed a little taken back.

“What? You thought I was gonna change into another dress or something?” (Y/N) giggled at the look on his face that obviously said he did think that. “Okay, you wanted to know how to compliment a girl, right?” Jay nodded. “Well, lesson one. Compliment my appearance. Girls like to know they look nice in anything.”

“Okay, let’s give this a go,” Jay cleared his throat, “Danggg you look hot in that shirt—I mean is it cold in here? Wait what cold? I meant hot. Holy crap you look amazing.” (Y/N) giggled at his attempt.

“We’ll keep working on that.”

They met twice a week for a month, (Y/N) giving Jay tips on how to compliment girls and how to express he liked them. Although, she couldn’t help but feel her heart break a little each time she got a practice compliment, knowing Jay would use the compliments she so desperately wished to hear go to another girl.

When Jay mastered the art of compliments the first thing (Y/N) did was stop talking to Jay. If she knew one thing about the princesses at Auradon Prep was that they wore their jealousy like a new dress.

Jay, however, was confused on why she had just stopped talking to him, even going as far as to get Evie and Carlos to ask her what was wrong. She wouldn’t give either of them a straight answer, making up a different excuse each time they asked. Then one day (Y/N)  got ready for school and was immediately bombarded by Lonnie who gave her a single rose and a note with a compliment on it.

She got them all day, getting two dozen roses in total before she saw Jay approach her. “Why are you avoiding me?” he asked, looking a little heartbroken.

“We finished your lessons, and Auradon girls get quite jealous these days. I didn’t want to interfere when you got a girlfriend,” she shrugged her shoulders as if it was the most obvious thing ever.

And Jay laughed. “I like you!” he told her. “Why do you think I had people give you roses and compliments all day. I’ve liked you since you made the effort to talk to us, even if Evie is your mother’s sworn enemies’ daughter.”

And as the days went on, a day never went by where Jay didn’t compliment her, even for the smallest of things. And she loved it.

cinderella: redo

so i was watching cinderella while doing my nails and waiting for them to dry which was clearly a Mistake because now i can’t help but think -

the evil stepmother was always evil, okay. say her abuse of her own daughters was different than that of cinderella’s - but it was still abuse. giving them impossible expectations, telling them they were never good enough, never pretty enough, never smart enough. and then she gets married, and anastasia and drizella are ecstatic because this man seems kind and warm and maybe just maybe he can temper their mother, maybe with him around she won’t be so cruel. so they’re on their very best behavior in the beginning, they do just as their mother taught - they trot out their best upper court manners in an attempt to get their new stepfather to like them. but it just comes off as cold and snooty and they’re trying, they are, they’re just bad at it. and they see how he is with cinderella, the smiling girl their own age, and they are jealous. they don’t mean to be, they try not to be, they know it isn’t becoming of young ladies. but she gets hugs and kisses and affection and they get rulers slapped on their hands when they reach for desert and sharp jabs to their sides when they slouch and - soon they hate cinderella, not for anything she’s done, but for what she has and they dont

but then her father dies. and it’s all a tumble of things and cinderella is crying and they’ve lost their only chance at escaping their mother’s clutches and it’s terrible. and everything settles and there’s no reason to be jealous anymore but resentment is hard to let go of and they don’t know what to do. they’re only kids too after all. and they’re so terribly bad at comforting people, they can do flowery words and know all the right bows but cinderella is so sad and they just don’t know what to do with that, because they’re supposed to be sisters but they’re not even friends

and slowly but surely their mother starts abusing cinderella, starts making her a maid in her own home, and she’s their mother, what are anastasia and drizella supposed to do? she rules them with an iron fist, and cinderella doesn’t even like them anyway, it’s none of their business.

except one night anastasia crawls into her sister’s bed in the middle of the night and wakes her up. “i was thirsty,” she explains, eyes wide and shiny, and they’re bad at this with other people but drizella has no problems with pulling anastasia into her arms. the younger girl clutches her sister and continues, “i was thirsty and i went down to the kitchen to get some water and - and cinderella is still up! she’s doing the dishes, and she should be asleep, mom is going to make her make breakfast in the morning and -” she cuts herself off with a hiccup and whispers, “it’s not fair.”

“life isn’t fair,” drizella says, echoing one of their mother’s favorite phrases. but her sister is staring at her with wet eyes, and it’s not like their mother is likely to get up before sunrise anyway, she hates waking up, so she pulls herself and anastasia out of bed and off they go.

KNOW YOUR WAKANDANS | Queen Ramonda

I already did an entry about Ramonda, but life is too short not to talk about her every chance I can. I really, really love this character and the fact that she appears in distress in our only glimpse of her in the trailer is very upsetting to me. Protect her at all costs!

So, like I said before, Ramonda is T’Chaka’s second wife. His first marriage was of duty and his second was a marriage of love. Ramonda is not native Wakandan, which is why he wasn’t allowed to marry her during the first go-round.

One of the things I love, love about how Ramonda and T’Challa are written is that he accepts her and loves her even though she is not his biological mother. I have seen too many fairy-tale like stories of evil stepmothers, when I know so many people who consider their step-parents more parents to them than their “real” parents.

I think for T’Challa the fact that T’Chaka loved her would be enough for him to honor her. But the fact that she has also proven to be a deft politician and adviser makes him appreciate her even more. (T’Challa calls her “mother” and trusts her implicitly in the comics.)

In the Christopher Priest run, he played with the evil step-mother convention in a way that I really enjoyed. We learn there is a mole in T’Challa’s inner circle, feeding information to an ally of Killmonger. It’s revealed to be Ramonda. (We are meant to assume since she is not his real mother, she could betray him.) But – POSSIBLE SPOILERS? – we then learn that T’Challa wanted information on what Killmonger was up to and he chose Ramonda as the spy because she was the only one he truly trusted enough.

I say possible spoilers because I’m not sure which elements of the Priest storyline will be used in the movie. It’s possible they could set something up in which it appears that Ramonda is trying to ally with Killmonger (perhaps to marry him to her daughter Shuri, who was not yet created during the Priest run) and turn against T’Challa. But that might be a lot to fit into one film.

Certainly I hope we get to see more than a fleeting glimpse of the fabulous Angela Bassett, who has been one of my favorite actresses ever since she played Tina Turner. It’s such a dream for her to be the Queen!
