Just you and me, and I could be part of your world…
WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT TO DO THIS TO ME
Could we talk about this for a bit, please?
This scene pains me deeply. Why? Well, Hans is being a total douche in the name of power, Elsa has completely up on life and is totally okay with Mr. Douchey Pans sending a sword through her, and then, well, then there’s Anna. Out of the three, her participation hurts the most.
In the outtake song “Life’s Too Short (Reprise),” Anna regrets being “so desperate to be loved I only ever thought of me.” This song was supposed to take place a few minutes preceding this GIF, as she froze, alone, in that cold room after having been betrayed by the only person she was convinced still loved her.
At that point her words are a bitter realization, and they sting even more accompanied by Elsa’s lyrics: “I’ve frozen out the only friend I’ll ever know…I wish that I had been there for her long ago.” The girls in this scene are both thoroughly convinced the other could never forgive them It’s all over, and they’ll die never getting the chance to reconcile.
Then, Anna spots something in the distance. She sees the man that betrayed and left her for dead, bringing down his sword on a hopeless, better-off-dead queen. Soon Anna will freeze over and die. Her only hope is still a good ten meters off.
At this point, Anna could a) wait for true love’s kiss to save her from the curse, or b) jump in front of that sword. Except, Anna has no idea when she’ll freeze. She could freeze before Kristoff makes it, she could freeze before she makes it to Elsa, or she could jump in front of that sword and still not freeze—making the last sensation that of a sword halving her, and the last thought, I love you.
In that split second, Anna was forced to choose who she loved more. Elsa, or herself.
My contribution to the Four Seasons fandom. I love these four girls, and I’m glad that I have a reason now to group them all together! Which season best describes you? (I think I’m an Autumn!)
For the first time in forever, Anna was noticed by someone.
This is what I loved most about Frozen. They tried to make it seem like it was about Anna’s love story, when really, it was about her and Elsa, and the fact that they were becoming friends again
In the first one, the step is completely natural - she’s a kid, and her powers are a part of who she is.
In the second, she’s running away and she’s hesitant and afraid. She doesn’t know if she can do it because she’s been hiding it for so long.
In the third, she’s liberated and triumphant. Defiant, with something to prove.
And in the fourth, she’s completely natural again. She’s free.
