Reasons why Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper is a seriously underappreciated animated movie:
–both the princess and the pauper are in situations that teach self-sacrifice for the good of others
–the plot is complex and has multiple angles that all work together really well
–the glittery, feminine blonde princess is a science nerd
–the princess and the pauper are instant BFFs
–the songs are cute and catchy, but are also important to the storyline
–the love stories are realistic; the princess is in love with her best friend/tutor who she’s known for years, and the pauper falls in love with the king from a neighboring country because of their shared interests and beliefs
–the villain is a flamboyant and obnoxious character who is so hilarious all by himself that you will honestly laugh out loud more than once
–there’s a street cat that barks
–the street cat that barks falls in love with the dainty, sassy feline from the castle
–the princess and the pauper never go anywhere without their pets, and the pets return the favor by helping them whenever they need it
–did I mention the songs?
–the villain’s henchmen are named Nick and Nack
–the king (the pauper’s love interest) likes disguises for no apparent reason
–the tutor (the princess’ love interest) saves the day, like, three times without expecting a reward
–both the king and the tutor become bros in a single bonding moment as they simultaneously chase down the villain that tried to hurt their women
–all the main characters are interesting
–not only does the king refuse to believe the pauper is anything but good despite the evidence that she’s a criminal, but he also patiently waits for her for months while she’s living her dream of traveling the world, and then takes her back the moment she shows up at his front door because he’s faithful to her
–the princess breaks royal tradition by marrying the tutor, but also finds a way to secure the wealth of her kingdom first so that her people will be happy
–there’s a double wedding
–the pauper wears a choker with her wedding dress at the double wedding
–literally everything is girly; even the castle is pink
–the overall point of the whole movie is that you are special and beautiful, and that as long as you stay positive and support each other, everyone will get their happy ending
BONUS: there are specially-animated outtakes during the credits
This is kinda weird, but I drew Anti and Dark as teenagers, and used Ernest and Lucien as references…
I can’t really explain why…? I guess Lucien has Mark/Dark’s hairstyle and I liked the thought of Anti wearing a big hoodie and looking kinda grumpy. Also, them being teens has to do with an AU I’m doing where they’re basically punk kids and delinquents.
Anti has an eyebrow piercing because Jack mentioned in this video that he used to have one, and Dark is sporting a choker because of this thing Mark did with Matthias and Team Edge last year.
It had been a week since the two of you broke up. Things between the two of you weren’t the same. He was traveling all around the world living his dream, while you were finishing off school. His hectic schedule and the distance was just too much and you decided to end it. It’s not what you wanted but it was for the best. Jin had finished his concert. The concert you were going to attend. Once he got back stage he began to cry. He couldn’t stand not being with you. The boys came to comfort him, but it wasn’t enough. He just wanted you.
You had just gotten into a fight with Yoongi. You and Yoongi had been dating for almost a year and he decided to dump you out of the blue. You didn’t know why, but Yoongi did. You’re relationship was too good. You were too good to him. He believed that he would eventually mess up, lose you and get hurt. So what was his solution? He broke up with you. He watched as you packed your things and left, holding back his tears. After you had left he could not hold them anymore and slid down the wall, bursting into tears.
The both of you knew it would have to end soon. It was getting too hard to even text. He was super busy and you were super busy. The both of you sat down together and talked it out. Yes there was screaming and tears, but in the end you both came to a consensus. There was no pointed fingers. You were calmly sleeping when your phone started to blow up. You had thousands of twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, and text messages. You opened your best friends message. You found a video of BTS on stage, on that exact night. The performance was of Butterfly. You smiled throughout the entire song, until Namjoon showed up on your screen, crying. You could hear the passion in his words, making you cry.
The two of you had not been together for two months. After you broke up, hoseok didn’t cry, he just consumed himself in his work. He was working in the studio when Yoongi came. He had noticed how he didn’t wallow after the two of you broke up. The moment Yoongi mentioned you, hoseok froze. Hearing your name for the first time in a while, broke him. He started crying in front of Yoongi. He explained how he felt empty without you and the only way to fill the emptiness was to consume himself with work.
You broke up with him. You were a fool to think Jimin could give you that. He was touring the entire time. You broke up with the night he came back from tour. Jimin knew it was coming. He left your apartment right after and walked to the nearest bar. He drank and drank until he could forget your name. He drank so much that he got into a fight because of nothing. Namjoon found Jimin in the bar bleeding. He dragged him all the way to their place. Jimin started crying in the elevator, desperately calling for you.
Taeh and you were everybody’s favorite couple. The adorable boy loved you with his entire heart, so he didn’t understand why you broke up with him. You came into his place looking like you had just cried for hours, which you had. You were scared that Taeh would leave you, you could not bare to think that he would break your heart like the last guy did. You didn’t want to break up with him, but you did. The next day Taeh and the boys were eating when a fan came up to Taeh and asked about you. He held in his tears and said you were back home. Right after the fan left he began to cry to the boys.
The both of you were so happy in your relationship. Jungkooks family loved you so much, but your family did not. They thought that he was going to cheat on you. It was bound to happen since he was famous right? Doubts filled your head every day. You started to distance yourself from Jungkook. You didn’t answer his texts or calls. One day you stopped talking to him. No one knew about this, so when the boys mentioned you in an interview jungkook broke down in front of the boys and the fans.
So my beautiful best friend, @tacmc and I decided to do a prompt exchange! The prompt we went with is “The fire alarm went off at 3 am and now the cute guy from the apartment next door is standing next to me in his underwear,” with a Rowaelin pairing.
Let us know if this is something you’d like for us to do more often!
You can find her half of the exchange HERE (it’s so damn cute, UGH) and mine below the cut! Enjoy!
