strange wedding

8

I use filming as an excuse to take classes. I got my certification in sailing for ‘Wedding Crashers,’ and now I can handle a 26-foot boat. I played a seamstress once, so I took sewing classes. I love dipping into these other lives.

Happy 38th Birthday, Rachel Anne McAdams! (November 17th 1978)

Strange Swans

I was rewatching The Swan Princess and got an idea for a Strange Magic AU. 

Roland is a sorcerer who wants to marry a princess and become a king. He’s not picky about which princess, but his first attempt is with Marianne. 

Roland is Bog’s court wizard and Marianne is betrothed to Bog to unify their kingdoms, which share a border. Roland assumes Marianne will be glad to marry him instead of “that ugly cockroach” and is unaware she genuinely loves Bog. (They got to know each other during the betrothal rather than meeting for the first time on their wedding day.) 

When Marianne refuses to marry Roland, he spirits her away to his private estate and turns her into a swan. 

This was a terrible idea. 

With the physical power of a swan backing up Marianne’s own innate ferocity, she attacks him. Fearing for his face, he changes the spell and makes her a frog instead. She still won’t marry him. 

Bog assumes Marianne ran away because he was too ugly to marry. Roland helps this impression along. Griselda is suspicious but has no evidence. Tension increases between the kingdoms since they are both suspicious the other is responsible for Marianne’s disappearance, but because they are also both deeply dependent on one another for trade and defense, war is avoided. 

A few years later, Roland tries his luck with another princess, Dawn, whose small and isolated kingdom also hoped to forge ties with Bog’s kingdom through a royal wedding. Dawn is in love with one of her court minstrels, Sunny, but willing to marry Bog for the good of her people. Bog is reluctant and trying to avoid her because he’s still pining for Marianne. 

Dawn is as indignant at Roland’s proposal as Marianne was. If she were going to break the contract it would be for the one she truly loves, not for some guy she just met! 

Dawn’s gentler nature, however, means Roland feels safe turning this princess into a swan. 

Trapped on Roland’s estate if she wants to continue turning human by night, Dawn meets Marianne, who immediately adopts her as a little sister. They test the ‘kissed by a princess curse antidote’ by having human-Dawn kiss froggy-Marianne on the cheek. It works, and Marianne breaks into the estate’s house to steal food, clothing, weaponry, maps, and travel supplies. They set off to try and get to Bog’s castle before sunrise, since they have no way of knowing until moonset if Marianne’s kiss on Dawn’s cheek also broke that curse. (Unfortunately the estate does not have horses for them to steal.) 

They both turn back into animals by day and conclude their curses got tangled up with one another. Marianne rides in Dawn’s claws and they fly back to Bog’s castle. Dawn doesn’t turn human that night, but Marianne does, and finds Griselda. 

Griselda is shocked and thrilled Marianne has returned, and happily lends her armor and a sword so she can storm the throne room and attack Roland, while Dawn and Griselda go looking for Sunny, who was part of Dawn’s retinue when she came to meet Bog. They’re hoping True Love’s Kiss will work, since Kissed By A Princess has so far had mixed results. 

Marianne takes Roland down (again) with some help from Bog. It is unclear if Roland’s death (remember, he committed treason by sabotaging Bog’s political marriage and risking the kingdom going to war, twice) or Sunny’s kiss that breaks the curse on Dawn. 

After revealing to her family that she’s alive and well, Marianne sets up ties between her kingdom and Dawn’s, officially since she “owes” Dawn for helping break the curse, but mostly because she cares about her adopted sister, and also so Dawn’s kingdom won’t get annoyed at Bog’s kingdom for turning down the marriage contract in favour of renewing the original contract between Bog and Marianne’s kingdoms.

There is a double wedding.

Imagine:

You were Sherlocks date to John and Mary’s wedding. When he saw you in a silky, blue dress that showed off all your curves he couldn’t keep his hands off of you; he was almost late to the ceremony. Once the celebrating began he was once again all over you, you both went into the bathrooms to find privacy and away from public eyes, but that didn’t keep John from noticing. He pulled Sherlock to the side to ask if you were alright, Sherlock just replied that you were having a great time and pulled John closer to whisper, “I haven’t finished yet.”

Strange Magic Week DAY 2: wedding/arranged marriage

for helvede! I forgot this wedding theme… well here is late lazy crazy colored one from me..
i really love all you others wonderfull contributes to this theme, mine is not very original…

Marianne is forced into mirrage with Roland, but she knows he is cheating on her, making her an miserable butterfly.
Bog hears the alarm that someone is in The Dark Forest. Checking it out himself, only to find a crying Marianne

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Human AU Wedding headcanon:

Okay, so Dawn becomes a planner-zilla for Bog and Marianne’s wedding.  They don’t mind though, they just wanna get married.  But Dawn wants everything to be absolutely perfect, down to the very last detail.  She even insists that Marianne wear white, despite neither the bride nor the groom being able to keep a straight face about it.  Horndogs.  XD

Anyway, either as a joke during the rehearsal or, dare I say it, for real during the actual ceremony, Marianne switches the music so she comes walking down the aisle to the “Imperial March” from Star Wars while sporting a Stormtrooper helmet.  By the time she reaches the altar, Bog has already put on his Darth Vader helmet. 

And then we hear Dawn screaming from somewhere:

“OH YOU TWO THINK YOU’RE JUST SO DAMN FUNNY!!!”

When the hustle and bustle of Villeneuve fell to a haunting silence in the late hours of the evening, that’s when a particular stranger crept further down the cobblestone road. Vayle had been pleased with the leisurely progress of her plan thus far, and she had decided the time was now to accelerate its pace. She removed her cloak, draping a deep blue cloth around her head and underneath her chin. Tying it securely, the old woman tamed loose strands of pale, frizzy hair and strolled deeper into the shadows.

Only two men, known throughout the village as Tom and Dick, were seen hovering in the streets, their breaths stinking of alcohol as they gulped their final drink of the night. Vayle stepped behind an abandoned carriage and observed them closely as the inebriated men fell onto the stone steps underneath the back door of a local tavern.

“Won’t be surprised if we sleep through the wedding tomorrow,” Dick slurred his words.

“We can’t miss it. Everyone’s talking about Gaston; They all think he’s going to be there.”

“At the wedding? He wouldn’t dare show his face around that castle.”

“He’s Gaston. Doubt he’d care,” Tom spoke matter-of-factly as Dick huffed in agreement.

It was a perfect segway into her introduction, Vayle thought as the two villagers elaborated on the war hero. The old woman had been stalking her daughter for weeks, recently attempting to kill her in the woods after unleashing a pack of wolves. But this Gaston, when he saved her daughter, well, Vayle could envision his significant importance in her plan. He was the only reason Anne would stay; She had seen her daughter’s enlivened expressions when she was around him, she could confidently sense her internal battle to stay in Villeneuve or return home. It was all so perfect. Vayle was conniving, as vicious as she was dangerous, and she couldn’t dwell on the thought of losing Anne to this monster. The old woman had her reasons...

“Gaston, Gaston, Gaston, Gaston,” Vayle moved from behind the carriage, revealing her presence to the two awestruck men. Her words oozed with disgust as she spoke steadily. “I swear, is that man all you two ever discuss?”

“Who the hell are you?” Tom rose from his seated position, swaying unsteadily.

“I’ve been following you,” she announced, ignoring their questions. “And I’m aware of your hatred for Gaston. He’s someone I’ve had my eye on as well.”

I don’t know if anyone has pointed this out yet but isn’t it strange that the wedding dress pudding is currently wearing and her hair style does not match the black and white silhouette we saw of her earlier when big mom was fantasizing about the wedding plans? I mean the black and white silhouette wedding dress so conveniently resembles the dress nami wore on thriller bark and the hairstyle is also very similar to the one nami currently has on.

Hmmmmmmmmm idk maybe this is just a coincidence but it’s got me thinking is oda paralleling thriller bark with wci?
