Elsa learnt to control her magic because True Love is bullshit

So I finally got to watching Frozen yesterday, and one thing that really annoyed me was the portrayal or insinuation of Elsa gaining control over her powers after she understood what True Love was about after Anna sacrificed herself for her. Somehow this explanation felt kinda weird and off. :/

I thought if anything, Elsa is the one who has understood what True Love was from the very beginning by placing the needs of others (their safety) ahead of her wants (being around people).

Anna instead, is the one who needed to grow up and understand what True Love on her part meant. Right from the very beginning, she is always thinking about herself and what she wants. From badgering her sister to forgo sleep to play with her, to not consulting her sister before agreeing to a marriage proposal (I mean which royal doesn’t consider the consequences of a marriage union on their family’s political power?).

When Anna finally understood True Love is and was able to save herself, I think it gave Elsa enough peace of mind to stop fearing she would gravely endanger Anna again. Once Elsa took control of her fears, she gained control of her powers.

So the story of Frozen is about Anna saving herself and her sister Elsa, who is “the damsel in distress”.

Industry reading of the new musical GHOSTLIGHT.  January 13, 2014.  The astonishing CAROLEE CARMELLO as Billie Burke sings like a dream.  Behind her the up-and-coming Phillipa Soo as Olive Thomas.  Phillipa is currently Natasha in Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.  So proud to have produced this reading.

At least Tom Nook doesn’t take away our houses, cars, and good credit if we take a while to pay things off. 

Plus no finance charges!

I’ve decided to do a 5 month continuous blog post of the morning & evening waterfront view from my office. Why 5 months? Because the real estate rent is too damn high, that’s why! (Just kidding. My contract job to this prime location ends in 5 months.)

It’s hard to see from the photos, but at certain angles, the sunlight reflection off the surface of the water dances like a giant shimmery sequinned tapestry. Otherwise, it’s a big blanket of calm, solid blue.
