Shadow on the Wall


“There are times, Catarina, when I find myself transfixed by a shadow on the wall, or the splashing of water on a stone. I stare at it, the hours pass. The world around me drops away, replaced by worlds being created and destroyed by my imagination.”
Leonardo da Vinci hologram
Star Trek: Voyager, “Scorpion, Part 1”

A little bit about me: My name's Denise. I'm a college student, majoring in theater. Ergo, I love to act! I also like big words and spend large portions of my time writing fan fiction and original works. I'm a proud nerd and you'll probably see a plethora of posts related to my various obsessions!

Speaking of my obsessions, I love:
Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, Mythbusters, Teen Titans, the Inheritance Cycle, Syfy's Alice, and other wonderful things that I can't think of right now!

FYI: Most of the images and GIFs aren't mine.

Ask me anything

OKAY LOOK AT THAT HE GLANCES UP BEFORE GOING TO STOP HIM. HE GLANCES UP AT THE GIANT ICE CHANDELIER THING AND MOVES THE GUYS ARM TOWARD IT ON PURPOSE BECAUSE HE’S HOPING IT WILL FALL ON HER AND HE WILL STILL APPEAR TO BE THE GOOD GUY FOR TRYING TO STOP THE DUDE FROM SHOOTING HER WHEN ALL ALONG HE WAS TRYING TO KILL HER ANYWAYS

I JUST NOTICED IN THE 2ND GIF THE LITTLE TROLL IN KRISTOFF’S ARMS IS SQUIRMING IN HAPPINESS OMG HE LOOKS SO CUTE

can we just appreciate how bulda just throws her head back and waves her arms like “praise the lord” 

His best friend is a reindeer; I don’t think she had high hopes of him ever finding a girl.

no, no, this is my favorite kristanna moment. Kristoff recognizes that this man not only betrayed Anna’s trust and love, but also tried to kill her best friend and sister Elsa. He had full intention to whup Hans’s sorry butt. But Anna also sees this and rushes forward, makes him stay back with a single touch. And he backs down, accepts it, because he knows her strength and respects her wishes

best disney prince hands-down.

In other words:

She always turned to her dad.

ARGH LET ME TELL YOU A THING.

I saw this little article about “10 Reasons Why Frozen is the most modern disney movie” or something blahblahblah, and reason number one was that Elsa’s parents were abusive.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

noooooooooo. no no no no no.

FROLLO was abusive. MOTHER GOTHEL WAS ABUSIVE.

Elsa’s parents did their darn best to make sure none of their daughters got hurt. Her dad didn’t know how to handle ice powers! He didn’t have ice powers! Nobody else had ice powers! No! All he knew was that Elsa had to learn to control her powers, and he did his darn best to help her. Maybe he didn’t go about it correctly. Maybe he accidentally contributed to her anxiety issues. MAYBE HE MESSED HER UP.

But it wasn’t on purpose. 

Look at this man. Look how much he cares for his daughter. He’s not afraid to touch her. He’s not afraid to hold her. He gave her the gloves FOR HER OWN PROTECTION, and Elsa turned them into a prison because she was afraid of herself. 

This movie is fascinating, not because it showed abusive parents, but because it showed LOVING, WELL MEANING, ADORABLE parents trying to help their daughter in the best way they could. Even if they did it wrong. Even if they didn’t have all the answers. They TRIED.

And that’s the saddest part. Because sometimes, even when parents try their best, they can still mess their kids up. It’s reality. But I don’t think Elsa ever blamed him for trying. 

Parents of children with mental illness don’t always know what to do. They might say ‘calm down’ like it’ll magically fix it. They might talk about self-control in a way that makes the child internalize it and feel ashamed. They might not talk about it to others, to protect their child.

And that’s because the world does not talk about mental illness. The world does not engage with it or understand it or seek to do right by it. So the parents are internalizing THAT, and the cycle just keeps going.

Elsa says she doesn’t want the touch of her father because she’s afraid of harming him, and her father looks horrified by the fact that she feels that way.

He reassures her they’ll only be gone a little while when they leave by boat, and trust her to be okay when they’re gone.

They are hurtful, they do harm to Elsa, but they are UNWITTINGLY hurtful. Society is hurtful and it leaves well-meaning but ignorant people to pick up on that for lack of knowing what else to do.
