Day #1: Your favorite character: Meg (Hurcules) and Mushu (Mulan)
Day #2: Your favorite princess: Vanellope Von Schweetz (Wreck-It Ralph) and Eilonwy (Black Cauldron)
Did another double. I know these are really hipster choices, but both are technically Disney princesses. Black Cauldron is a great movie, a little dark, but I loved it when I was a kid. Came out in 1985. Eilonwy was never a damsel and I thought her relationship with the hero, Taran, showed a lot of parity (#sorryforthefeminism #toomuchfeminism #pitzercollege) For some newer Disney, I also wanted to honor the adorable and feisty Vanellope from Wreck-It Ralph - an amazing movie with a great soundtrack.
I love both of these princesses because they are stubborn and somewhat rebellious, but not in the bullshit Ariel way who just wants her man. They like… ACTUALLY are strong women.
“wow ya good over there pal, just askin cause ya’ being really dumb right now”
the president tited her head to the side at the stranger, his was no doubt Vanellope’s way of saying she had zero interest on the matter, not only she didn’t have many friends in her game because, mind you, she wasn’t dumb enough to believe everyone’s politeness to her was genuine, it was as clear as day they were nice to her, because she could quite literally, jail everyone she pleased, not to mention she had their codes, meaning their lives, in her hands.
it hurted her more than a bit that they would only treated her right because of that, but even if they had been genuine, Vanellope would never end up trusting them completelly, forgiving was a thing but forgotting was another, very diferent one.
so how could someone actually believe she would have a crush?
oh and then there’s Ralph, sure, the big guy was her best friend, but not even in a milion years would she like like him that way, he was a 9 foot wrecking machine in diapers for mod’s sake.
and the last, and most important reason, love was yuck.
Vanellope’s clock red twelve o clock and she decided to get on his nerves for wasting her time so late in the night, though her spunk was a little diminished due to being so tired she didn’t forgive him the following “you’re too dumb” stare
“do i needta show you the door cornhead? I don’t think yer stupidity wil letcha see anythin’ right now, and if you need advice just go ask hammerhead and crazy lady already!” this nine year old is busy!”
And blamo, the youtube version of my Epic Orchestral arrangement of Sugar Rush: ‘Sugar Rot: The Last Moments of Vanellope’ is now live!
What if the Cy-Bugs succeeded in consuming Sugar Rush? What if Vanellope had to spend Sugar Rush’s last waking moments surviving in the husk of her world? What would happen as she stumbled across her barely recognisable home? The sugar all gone and nothing but the smell of ruined code the Cy-Bugs left in their wake. How would that little girl react in such a hostile turn of events, knowing that it didn’t matter if the Cy-Bugs did get her; the world was ending anyway?
This is the image/scenario that is depicted in this music.
