Congresswoman!Anna and Queen!Elsa, an idea that simply wouldn’t leave my head (see my previous posts). Luckily writing gets them out again.

[Modern AU, non-related Elsanna] Anna Summerford, the newest and youngest member of the US congress, is trying to keep her head above the water and her soul reasonably clean. Elsa Arendelle is the newest and youngest queen of her nation, trying to steer her little country through the world and keep her confidence intact. Their accidental meeting will change their lives forever.

It’s always a pleasure to stumble across an excellent Elsanna fanfic while flipping through a blog.  I like this idea quite a bit and the first chapter is well-done.  I look forward to more of this in the future.

FF.net link for those who prefer it.

This is my favorite post of the three.

I officially headcanon ambidextrous!Anna.

No. Shut up. It’s canon. Shhh.

I think this is true too. I mean, she doesn’t stick to one hand throughout the film. So, definitely going with ambidextrous for Anna.

This headcanon was, seriously, my first ever post on this blog back on February 28, 2014. My, how time flies.

Idina worked with animators to make Elsa’s singing feel realistic.  ”They wanted to know how I sing, really, what do I do when I breathe.”

It’s not something immediately noticeable, but the expansion of the ribs and chest, the subtle rise of the shoulders, the drawing in of the diaphragm, everything just made Elsa’s motions that much more realistic.

I need to post more. But, I do have something in the works that might be interesting for all.

Times like these, I wish I would read Japanese.

I think Anna is either asking Elsa why she styled her ice gown the way she did when there were plenty of alternatives, or, most likely, asking Elsa why she only ever wears her ice gown when she has plenty of other dresses to choose from. The answer? It’s based on their mother’s wedding gown (again, I’m guessing).

I’ve read this a while ago. It’s a secret about Elsa’s dress.

Anna asks for Elsa’s opinion to choose the dress for going on a date with Kristoff. Elsa asks Anna why she has to help her with the choosing and Anna answers back that Elsa has such a good sense for fashion, like the icy blue dress that she’s wearing, she designed and made it herself, and it’s gorgeous.

But the truth is, this dress is similar to Queen’s wedding dress, which she’s always wanted to wear when she grown up. :)

Reblogging for the explanation, courtesy of Lorelei-LilyPrincess. Many thanks! And keep up the excellent work. Your Elsanna fanart is elegant and lovely.

My love, you’ve been talking dirty. Okay. I love it when you talk dirty anyway. My turn. armorydock
Olaf: I guess I was wrong. I guess Kristoff doesn’t love you enough to leave you behind.
Since Olaf is indeed a physical incarnation of everything metaphorical and he is the mirror of every hidden, candid, and concealed emotion and thought of Elsa, he knew what love was the way Elsa interprets and sees it. To Olaf, leaving Anna behind was an evidence of love. He was disappointed that Kristoff came back because that’s not how he sees love. To him, love is leaving you behind…forever.
Olaf: Love is…putting someone else’s  needs before yours, like, you know, how Kristoff brought you back here to Hans and left you forever.
He was subtly voicing Elsa’s actions and reasoning behind her isolation and choice to stay away, too. Elsa literally planned on settling in the North Mountain and live in eternal isolation for the sake of putting Anna’s needs first: safety. In other words, Olaf compared Kristoff’s actions of leaving Anna behind forever as love because he has seen it done before. He has seen and felt Elsa’s pain, sorrow, and love tangled up in one as a representation of utmost sacrifice and true love. 
Olaf was the very first thing Elsa created when she was finally “free”. Out of all the things she can build first, she builds a snowman that she’s been wanting to build for years with Anna. The same fucking snowman they built when they were kids named OLAF. The only memory she has of being with Anna and what they’ve done together. Olaf was the answer to Anna’s “Do you wanna build a snowman?” The first thing Elsa does is answer her fucking question the moment she was free to be herself. Anna was and will always be her first thought. 
Olaf saw Elsa’s ice palace. He was around Elsa..probably saw her lamenting and crying outside her balcony that’s why he knew where to lead Anna and Kristoff to find her. Free? yeah. Doesn’t mean she wasn’t lonely. Doesn’t mean she was completely happy leaving. Olaf was also there when Elsa literally made a fucking giant monster snowman to push Anna away for her own sake. 
Olaf knows what love is. And that love is Elsa’s love for Anna.
That’s how he made the comparison with Kristoff. That’s how he sees love because that’s what Elsa, his maker, sees it.
Olaf: Whoa! This is heat…I love it! OW, but don’t touch it!
And yes, you’re right about this. Elsa has no clue what warmth/heat is because she’s been void and deprived of it for so long. But if there’s one thing the Snow Queen knows, heat burns. It consumes. It hurts. It eats at every fiber of your being. Just as much as love does. 
Your turn, babe. *smiles sweetly*
