Rosy, did you catch in the sizzle reel how Madi describes Clarke as the "fairest and bravest warrior" who climbed the tower to save her friends? It's a total reset of being the Princess locked in L's tower. But shhhh, don't let the CLs hear us say that, lol. ;) And you know who the kickass princess normally falls for right? Well, just ask Rapunzel in Tangled...I think it was her knight....ahhhh, justice feels good.
I just watched it again. Oh, it was for us. Well, it was the story of The 100, which is the show that WE have been watching. Not that other show, that the CLs were watching where the hero was not Clarke. Or Bellamy. Or The 100. The ACTUAL heroes, according to Clarke’s story.
The whole climbing of the tower thing? We’ve got it three times, really. The first time when Bellamy was trying to save Clarke. Then, well, we kind of have BOTH of them attacking that tower to save everyone from ALIE. Clarke got kidnapped then, and Bellamy had to save her, and then they were able to save humanity together. And then the third time when Clarke was all alone and she was doing it to save her friends from the “monster” of praimfaya. So she’s the prince now.
The whole prince/princess thing keeps getting switched around. They trade places in that one. I don’t consider Bellamy her knight though. I consider them Queen and King, not prince and princess. But I still think the story being told is that romantic connection. And epic romance even. A mythic one.
Someone said that the sizzle reel felt like a Bellarke fanvid. LOL. nope. Official bidness. Hey, what can we tell them. The 100 is about Clarke and Bellamy and their relationship and how they save the world. Not our fault if they never got that and keep trying to watch a different show. I don’t actually get why people keep doing that. You just end up getting hurt when you put fanon over canon. Fanfiction is great, but it’s got no control over canon.
