Pocahontas x John Rolfe

Having grown up loving the first Pocahontas as a kid, I didn’t think the sequel ruined a thing. There’s a recurring point that others have brought up before me: it was nice to have a realistic arc for a Disney heroine. The first love you have isn’t always the one you’re meant to be with, and you can find love again. Even if it seems perfect, even if you spark, it doesn’t always mean things will work out, and sometimes it’s nobodies fault.

Since Pocahontas is based on real people and real life events (albeit loosely), I feel it has the pass to be more realistic and less like a fairy tale in that aspect. But there’s more to the Pocahontas x Rolfe love story than that, and it’s not just about the historical accuracy. I re-watched the first movie today, and it made me realize a number of things. Note, from here on out the points I’m going to make are based on the Disney incarnations, not their real life counterparts. I’m fully aware that history is far different.

Also please be aware I’m not trying to insult those who hardcore ship Smith and Pocahontas, but instead give some insight as to why Rolfe appeals to some of us so much more.

I have just noticed I forgot to edit Elsa’s right hand… So here’s the final version of this edit. :-)

And for the record I would say this was originally a png I have cut of Pocahontas and John Rolfe(you have probably guessed by their garments…) - They are one of my very top OTPs and among the firsts in my life!!! I ship them since I was 5 years old (since Pocahontas 2 was released in 1998)

Here it is!! My collaboration with LetThereBeDoodles! <3 This is something we have been working on for the last couple of weeks and it has been so much fun working together and I am so happy with what we created. We both hope that you enjoy these manips and the story that goes with them!(^-^)

We both wanted to do something new so we decided to create our own adaptation a la Disney! >:D We looked at several stories from around the world and got hooked by the story of Yuki-Onna, a mythical spirit from Japan. This is a character that has been re-imagend several times in film/TV before, so we had to take some artistic liberties in order for it to feel new and unique.

Even though this story is not historically accurate in the sense that it’s not based on real life events or people, we still did our absolute best to thoroughly research the era, culture and legends. But bare in mind that this adaptation was made by two non-Japanese creators, so errors in accuracy may be present. If this had been a real, original film project then we would naturally have hired film makers from a Japanese background to help us in it’s production. :3

DISCLAIMER: We do not own the movies which were used to created theses images. We only take credit for editing and the story.
Movies used: Brother Bear II, Fantasia 2000, Grave of the Fireflies, Lilo & Stitch, Millennium Actress, Mulan I-II, Peter Pan II, Pocahontas I-II, Princess Mononoke, Wolf Children

Story Summary:

WINTERTIDE: The tale of Yuki Onna

(developed by TheNamlessDoll and Lettherebedoodles, written by Lettherebedoodles.)

Every Winter when the snow starts to fall, the people of Japan huddle inside their homes with their families, away from the frigid white wasteland beyond the door.

Every Winter she watches them through the frosted glass, her pale skin barely distinguished from the snow around her, her eyes glinting from behind waves of long ebony hair. It is her job to see that the snow falls, that the winter comes and resets the world, preparing for the new beginning… However, human’s don’t seem to like the cold. They dread her return, and shun her when she arrives. They fear her… she is alone.

Yuki-Onna, the snow woman.

Imagine Fili Listening to You Tell a Story to the Company

Originally posted by chuckxavier

   It was a quiet night. Or, well….it would be if it weren’t for the constant chatter and laughter of the Company.  You didn’t mind at all.  Even though you enjoyed a little quiet every now and then, it was comforting to listen to them exchange jokes and stories.  Too much quiet out here in the wilderness could be a little on the scary side. You’d be able to hear wolves and orcs and whatnot in the distance, and to be honest, you’d rather not.  

   You sat near the campfire, rubbing your hands together in an attempt to warm them up a bit.  It was a cold night.  The ground was frosty and the occasional icy wind stung your face. Still, it was much nicer to be sitting by the fire surrounded by friends.

   Fili and Kili returned from a quick scouting mission, both laughing.

   “Nothing to report,” Kili called to Thorin between chuckles.

   Thorin sat quietly by the fire.  He nodded in acknowledgement to his nephews as they took a seat on either side of you. You smiled at Fili, pleased that he sat beside you.  No doubt you had feelings for a certain blonde warrior.

   “Good evening,” Kili and Fili said at the same time.

   “Good evening,” you returned the greeting, smiling.  “Anything new?”

   “No, just the usual,” Kili replied.  “Orcs shrieking in the distance.”

   “At least they’re not here,” you muttered.

   “I don’t know,” Fili contemplated.  “I’m kind of in the mood for a fight.”

   “If you want a fight, look no further,” Kili joked.  “I’ll give you a fight just for saying that.”  You laughed as the brothers reached behind you to punch each other.  But you were also becoming very aware of how Fili placed his hands on your shoulders pulled you out of the way before Kili could swat you with a knapsack.

   “Careful with that. You almost hit her,” Fili scolded his younger brother.

   “Sorry, ________,” Kili told you, but his mischievous grin showed he wasn’t sorry at all.  “Looks like you’ve got a knight in shining armor to protect you.”

   Fili noticed his hands still on your shoulders and released you, leaning over to swat Kili on the back of the head.  You rolled your eyes, but blushed. Their playful banter began to blend in with the general chatter of the others.  Your mind wandered as you thought about the dangers the Company had faced so far.  It made you think about what might be ahead.

   “___________.”

   “Oi, _________!”

   Somone nudged your arm, and your eyes shot up to meet Fili’s warm gaze.  He was smiling softly at you.  “They’re calling for you,” he informed.

   “Oh, sorry,” you shook your head.

   “You’ve been awfully quiet over there.  Everything alright?” Bofur asked.

   You gave him a reassuring smile.  “I’m fine, thank you.  Just thinking is all.”

   “Oh, she’s just thinking…” He chatted with Bombur, Glóin, and Dwalin.  You tipped your head to one side curiously as they exchanged a few whispers.  Bofur turned to you again.  “We were wondering…  We’re always talking n’ sharing the same ol’ stories.  We were hopin’ that you perhaps had a tale.”

   “Tell us a story,” Ori pleaded.

   Kili leaned forward, resting his cheek on the palm of his hand.  “Yes, _________.  Do tell us a story,” he grinned.

   You were a little surprised by the request, but you were also kind of happy.  “I can’t say I have any interesting tales to tell since this is my first adventure,” you confessed.

   “You could tell us about your favorite book, or a fairytale,” Bilbo suggested.

   “That’s an excellent idea,” you told him, grateful for the suggestion.  “Is that okay with the rest of you?  If I tell a fairytale?”

   The others nodded vigorously.  There were a few different fairytales that were commonly told among your people that were your favorites.  One in particular came to mind.  It was about a woman who lived in a tribe and a man who was part of a group of people that invaded the land.  Despite being on opposing sides of a conflict, they meet and fall in love. They meet in secret for some time and learn about each other’s cultures, discovering that their original prejudices about each other were wrong.  So, they decide that they want to try and put an end of the fighting, since they can only be together when the fighting stops.

   “So…let’s see….where do I start?” you wondered aloud, thinking back to the beginning of the story. “Oh, I know.  The tale begins with a young princess of a small tribe…”

   You went on to tell about how the couple met and fell in love, and the growing conflict between the tribe and settlers.  It eventually led to a monumental moment in the story.

   “Just when the tribe chief was about to execute her love, the princess leaped forward and threw herself on him to shield him.  Just in time too!”  You told the story enthusiastically, and the dwarves gasped dramatically as they had become so interested in the story.

   “And then what?” Bofur asked anxiously.

   “She told the chief, her father, that if he was going to kill the man, he’d have to kill her too. You know why?  Because she loved him.”  Your voice softened at those words.  “She managed to convince the chief to stand down.  To stop the fighting.”  

   You glanced at Fili who sat beside you, listening to you tell the story with a gentle smile on his face. You shot him a smile and continued.

   “Both sides realized that there was no need to go to war.”  

   “And they lived happily ever after?” Ori asked in a small voice.

   “Well…” you hesitated, causing the members of the Company to let out shocked gasps.  

   “What?  What happened?”

   “There was still one settler who didn’t want peace.  He was convinced that the tribe was withholding gold from him.  So, he grabbed a bow and arrow and shot at the chief. But the princess’ love saw what was going on.  He knew that if the settler killed the chief, the war would break out.  So, he took the shot.”

   “Did he die?” Bofur asked sadly.  

   “No, no he didn’t,” you replied.  “But he was badly injured.  They didn’t have the medical supplies to take care of him, so he would have to return to his homeland as soon as possible.”

   “What about the settler that tried to shoot the chief?” Glóin questioned.

   “Oh, they definitely arrested him.  There was no way they were happy about him shooting one of their own.”

  Glóin ‘hmph’ed in approval that the settler had been brought to justice.

  “The fighting was over, but now the girl’s love had to go back to where he came from, or else he’d die.”

   “Why doesn’t the princess go with ‘em?” Dwalin asked. 

   “Because she decided that she belonged with her people.”

   “What?”  Kili spoke up.  “They each found the love of their life, and they’re just to let them go?”

   “They kind of had to,” you reply, surprised by his interest.  You had no idea he was such a romantic.  “So, they proclaimed their love for one another, and hoped that they’d meet again someday.”

   The dwarves sat there with their mouths hung open in disbelief.

   “What?”

   “That’s so sad,” Ori mumbled.

   “Hey, it’s okay.  They do end up meeting again.  But that’s another story for another time.”  You told them.  Their expressions seemed to light up again and the chatter resumed.

   “That was a good story, I must say,” Balin told you.  “And you told it so well.  You’re a natural at story-telling.  You’ll have to tell us another one soon.”

   “Thank you,” you replied, smiling.  You glanced over to see Fili still gazing at you warmly.

   “Beautiful story,” he told you quietly.  “The princess reminds me of you.  Kind, selfless, brave.”

   You blushed, but before you could voice a reply, Thorin announced that it was time for the Company to get some sleep.  You sat up on your knees, ready to set up your sleeping mat.  But while the other dwarves were occupied, you stole a quick kiss on Fili’s cheek, leaving him speechless.

(Author’s Note:Yep, the story that reader tells is in fact the Disney Pocahontas.  And there is a reference to Pocahontas II.  Let’s just pretend that it was a fairytale back then.  No copyright intended. I do not own Pocahontas or the gif!)

Library Friend Store

So my library has this “Friend Store” where you can old used books and magazines and things, and they also have movies. I headed straight to the back where they have children’s movies (almost entirely VHS) and found a TROVE of movies I didn’t own. 

AKA seven, because I usually find one, maybe two on a good day. 

I managed to find:

  • Sing Along Songs - Very Merry Christmas Songs
  • The Wonderful World of Disney - Three on the Run + Race for Survival
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame II
  • Pocahontas II (still don’t own the original)
  • Homeward Bound
  • Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins
  • And MELODY TIME.

I’m seriously so excited for that last one. I didn’t know off the top of my head that is was released on VHS, but it appears it was part of the Gold Collection.

I also found Disney’s Aladdin, Six New Adventures from Disney Books By Mail, and The Wonderful Worlds of Walt Disney, a four book collection from 1965. I’m so happy with these last two days of Disney shopping.
