Merida (Jessica Jones AU) Five plus One Head Canons

1. Merida shaves her head for the first five months, nine days, and six hours after she is freed. Half her neighbors think she has cancer and the other just think she is crazy.

After the first time Merida gets a sunburn scalp, she gives up and wears the wigs and hats Rapunzel dumped en masse.

The pink one makes her look weird, the blonde makes her look like a doll, so Merida ends up cycling through the embroidered knit caps (the hand stitched ones, she recognizes Rapunzel’s work).

2. Merida survives on a cycle of sushi, soup, the odd binge of junk food and cheap beer, and few times Rapunzel can coax her over for a home cooked meal.

(The scent of cooked meat causes dry heaves and cold sweat- Merida knows the location of every steakhouse, hamburger joint, and kebab place for twenty blocks whether she likes it or not).

3. Merida discusses what happen to her mother once.

She is dead drunk for the week after.

Mor'du never.

4. “He’s dead. Saw ‘im die.” Rapunzel never asks, never speaks of it again, just curls up next to Merida and waits for the nightmares to go away.

5. They never will.

Merida learns to live with that fact. She learns to live, day to day, sometimes hour to hour. It has been one year, two months, and three days since she was freed.

She is free. (It is not my fault, I am free, I am free, the mantra helps. Mostly.)

Plus One.

No matter what Rapunzel teases, Merida does not start growing her hair out the day she meets Eret.

It is three days later when he comments on how he loves redheads over shots of beer nuts and bourbon.

(She throws away the blonde wig but keeps the embroidered caps).


*Mor'du kidnaps Elinor when Merida is a kid. Dad and brothers die in a car accident. Gothel adopts Merida for PR purposes. Mor'du finds Merida as an adult and takes her as his 'daughter.’ He is nutcase. Merida escapes a year later.

Hey guys, look! Fancy animation duds! If you can even call it animation lol. Playing around with my new CS6, and figured to play around with it a bit for some effects. Been awhile since I made anything. Anyway, this is a contribution to my new tumblr theme, just in time for Valentine’s Day :3. And what better way than with Cupid!au :D. I really had fun in making this LIES, since trying to figure out the sizing to the gif wasn’t lol. Either way, hope you guys will check out my blog set up, thank you for being continuously supportive! I truly apologize for my constant hiatus. Also, Merida’s cupid design is credit to @arcanabreak ;)!
