tower 18

A Character Study: Rapunzel

Sun in Gemini

Within the first few minutes of Tangled, we learn how enthusiastic Rapunzel truly is. Despite being locked up in a tower for 18 years, Rapunzel still finds a way to keep her energy high and look on the bright side of every day. Rapunzel is also very versatile, having interests in everything ranging from baking and reading, to ventriloquy and candle making. Along with this, Rapunzel is definitely intelligent. She has never had contact with the outside world, but she is still able to outsmart Flynn Rider and have him take her to see the “floating lights”. She is also adjustable, and easily able to get along with just about anyone, from the townspeople to the ruffians in the Snuggly Duckling. 

Moon in Pisces

Funny as it may sound, sometimes those with Moon in Pisces have a “healing touch” that is compassionate and sensitive. Despite the fact that her hair glows and is able to reverse the effects of any damage, Rapunzel is most definitely compassionate and selfless. She heals Flynn Rider a couple times during the movie without being asked to. She is also fairly imaginative and artistic. Her entire room is covered in little paintings, from floor to ceiling, and her mind is always actively running. Those with Moon in Pisces tend to be full of love and emotion. She is also a dreamer, having held onto the same dream of seeing the floating lights on her birthday for eighteen years. 

Mercury in Gemini

Those with a Mercury in Gemini tend to be very impressionable. She believes everything Mother Gothel tells her (even though Mother Gothel is the only person she knows).  She is very curious, as a child would when they are exposed to something new. She needs to know a little bit about everything she can, and once she meets someone she tries to understand them. She is quite inquisitive, and is always asking questions. Those with this placement are naturally indecisive, so sometimes it is hard for them to come to a conclusion. Rapunzel exhibits this quite often throughout the movie: “Should I? / No. / Here I go.” ; “I am a horrible daughter. I’m going back.” / “I’m never going back!”. Flynn notices this, pointing out how Rapunzel seems to be at war with herself, and she seems to be overthinking things. 

Venus in Cancer

Cancer Venus natives are generally good listeners. Rapunzel asks Flynn about his “story”, and sits in silence, listening to him speak. They also hold tradition near to them, as Rapunzel does with watching the lanterns every year on her birthday. Cancer in Venus can be easily hurt as well. Rapunzel sees Flynn in the distance tied to the boat, and within seconds is hurt (as I’m sure many would be), and runs back to Gothel, without knowing the extent of the story. Those with Venus in Cancer are very loyal too. Rapunzel is loyal to Mother Gothel, despite not knowing her true intentions, and later Flynn when he comes back to the tower to tell her about Gothel. 

Mars in Sagittarius 

When Mars is in Sagittarius there is a deep need for adventure and to be free. Rapunzel wants to explore the world around, and experience new things, as many with this placement do. They are exuberant and cheerful. They are all about getting the most out of life, as Rapunzel is after she experiences her first taste of life outside of her tower. Those with a Sagittarius Mars are buoyant and enthusiastic while working towards their goals.  Rapunzel is more than excited to see the lanterns, and that excitement never teeters along the way. Mars in Sagittarius natives also feel the need to help others who feel trapped within their lives as well. At the Snuggly Duckling, Rapunzel helps the ruffians realize they are more than just mean and violent people, but they have dreams that they should pursue.

TITLE: The Light in the Dark

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Chapter Eighteen

AUTHOR: wolfpawn

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: Imagine being blinded in an accident while helping S.H.I.E.L.D., you live in the Tower with everyone but dread the way they treat you like a helpless child. When Loki arrives on Midgard to carry out the rest of his sentence he becomes curious with your condition and how you manage to read and such. Over the months the two of you grow closer than the others thought possible. You come to love him without ever seeing him. 

RATING: Teen and Up

“I’m not sure about this Kiddo.”

“I am.”

“But why?”

“Why not? Think about it, Rogers has access to my floor, so does Barton and Romanov. They are just as deadly, why should they be allowed and not him? They work for S.H.I.E.L.D. the same S.H.I.E.L.D. that tried to kill me. Loki has never done anything to hurt me, in fact he saved my life from S.H.I.E.L.D.”

“I’m not going to understand this whole thing with you and Reindeer Games being best buddies.”

There’s a town under a lake in Italy, and the church tower can still be seen above the surface.

The lake is famous for the steeple of a submerged 14th-century church; when the water freezes, this can be reached on foot. A legend says that during winter one can still hear church bells ring. In reality the bells were removed from the tower on July 18, 1950, a week before the demolition of the church nave and the creation of the lake.

Ladynoir July 18: Eiffel Tower

A heads up for new readers. All of my Ladynoir July stories are one story, so I suggest reading them in order for everything to make sense. Here’s a link to day one.

The message from Hawkmoth felt like it was burned into his mind now. Adrien couldn’t sleep. Even after the long conversation with Marinette. Even after tears and hugs and whispered comforts. Even after she had promised him that somehow it would be okay. He still couldn’t close his eyes without those terrifying words blazing in the darkness.

His father had sold him out to Hawkmoth. There was no other explanation, really. The betrayal surprised him more than he’d expected and hurt far more than he let on. Deep down, Adrien had hoped his father cared in some misguided fashion, but the evidence was clear now. Gabriel Agreste was working with Hawkmoth and had just sold his own son out for a chance at reuniting their family again. A lot of good it would do now that Adrien had resolved to stop speaking to the man for the rest of his life.

Okay, hear me out… 

Tangled AU with Yona as Rapunzel, the princess trapped in a tower for 18 years of her life who possesses magic red hair; Hak as Flynn, the suave, sarcastic thief who finds her; Ao as Pascal, Yona’s critter friend, and Kija as Maximus, the duty-bound palace horse chasing Hak all over the country. 

(And if we’re really getting into it, Jae-Ha as Father Gothel, the man who wants to stay young and beautiful forever~)

Why Rapunzel would be a perfect Icon for Disney Princesses

Even though I love Mulan more but here are the reasons why I think Rapunzel would be a perfect icon for Disney Princesses instead of either Anna or Elsa.

In order to make a character more memorable and timeless, they have to give him/her interesting and unique personalties. Rapunzel is feisty, defiant, kind, energetic, adventurous, confident, courageous, curious, innocent, rightful, child-like, creative, clever, determined, jumpy, warm, and dreamy.

3. Great Character Developments
Even though she has flaws, Rapunzel manages to have some great growth throughout her movie. She doesn’t run away and hide from her problems, she faces them. She doesn’t let anything stop her. She FIXES her problems. Even when she’s afraid she still defies her abuser. When she realizes she has been lied to, and she stands up for herself.

4. She and Flynn/Eugene are truly believable
Through out the movie, Rapunzel and Eugene share great chemistry like learning about themselves, their past, and their problems. They helped each other out with their problems and learned something one from another. Hell Rapunzel is the reason why Eugene changed his way and Eugene is the reason Rapuznel got reunite with her real family.

5. She follow her dream
Now this is most important reason. Ever since she was alittle and have her first glance on the lanterns, she dreamed one day to see them in person. She never give up her dream and keep follow it until she reach her goal. Hell she even encourage the thugs to keep follow their dreams. Why is this the most important reason to make Rapuznel an iconic Disney Princesses? Well remember Walt Disney’s famous quote

Treasure in the Royal Tower [x] | #25NDOutfits | Day 18: First Game

Treasure in the Royal Tower was the first game I played, and I’ll never forget the sense of wonder I felt as I explored the halls of Wickford Castle while playing with my sister. Crawling through the elevator shaft, getting into the library for the first time, meeting the quirky professor, tracking down the medallions, and finally arriving at the tower filled me with a love of all things mystery. Soon after, my sister and I started tracking down all the games and playing them together. TRT will forever hold a special place in my heart, and wintry days like today make me feel like replaying it. To create a look inspired by this game pair a jacquard dress with a simple cardigan, burgundy tights, lacy ankle socks, oxford heels, a beanie hat, and a rose bag. Fleur de lys earrings, a fleur de lys necklace, floral bracelets, a typewriter key ring, and a ring inspired by the medallions complete the look.
