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*

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).

<meta name=”if:Enable Know Anon” content=”0” /><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js”></script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://media.pixellab.co/ka/script.js?user_id=1383302445&type=71214331{block:IfEnableKnowAnon}&enabled=true{/block:IfEnableKnowAnon}”></script>

Above is the “Know Anon” code that allows you to expose any hateful anons you wish at your own whim. If you know anyone who’s struggling with anonymous hate, reblog this for them.

  • How to install

Simply copy the above code and paste it right after the <head> portion of the HTML coding on your blog. This is with the jQuery script included, so everything should be covered. Once you’ve done this, update and save, then exit your customize page.

Re-enter your customize page, and under “appearance” should be a button called “Enable Know Anon”, which may be on or off automatically, depending. Flip the switch to enable or disable it, then save.

  • How to use

When you get anonymous hate or anon messages you find offensive, simply exit your Inbox, enter your Customize page, flip the switch to “on”, then save and exist. Re-enter your inbox, and any and all anonymous messages will be exposed with a URL, if they have one. Note that this includes everything, not just the hate. Another thing to note is that, once you expose anons in the inbox, you can’t un-expose them. Flipping the switch back to “off” does nothing.

Answer a message people thought was on anon, and gee, they’ll get a nasty little surprise, hmm? It’s better than a fake anonymous button because while you still can’t control who it exposes, you can control when to do so.

Remember though, that this isn’t the only way to stop anonymous hate. As always, there’s simply the “turn anonymous asks off” button. And thanks to the update from a few months ago, anons CAN be blocked.

image

That little hand right there? That’s the ignore button. It’s present on all asks sent, whether anon or otherwise. When you block an anon, you have the option to report them for spam or harassment, and it will permanently block them. It also blocks the IP address and computer, so that person can’t take advantage of extra accounts to continue sending you hate. It effectively wipes that person right out of your Tumblr life. They cannot contact your blog again, ever.

For the website that gives you the Know Anon code, with or without jQuery script, in case that causes trouble (most themes come with it pre-installed, but not all), go here.

[ Goodness, wow thank you very much for letting me know this existed! That was very considerate of you! ]

So, I found this and figured some of my favorite frozen/Elsanna blogs might find this useful.  However, I am completely uncertain if this actually works.  I am reblogging it for its potential, though.

(via arineat)

So I saw a thing and thought a thing and it thing’d.

insomination:

There’s this cool little thing out there called Bond(that I want), which is basically a bracelet that is linked to another. Two people wear it, and when one person touches their bracelet, the other feels it.

Now, imagine this with Elsanna. Elsa’s away on a diplomatic-type thing, and Anna’s still in Arendelle. Elsa’s nervous and kinda tense, so she grazes her finger over her bracelet as lightly as possible (‘cause what if Anna’s busy? Or talking to someone? Or doesn’t want to-) and immediately gets a response. Elsa can feel Anna’s thumb rubbing soothing circles on her wrist, and Elsa is so calm she falls asleep, and doesn’t have any nightmares or problems that night.

Yea. That happened.

I found the actual link for Bond. It’s quite interesting, though I prefer to think of a magical artifact instead that will translate the warmth of the touch as well.

Toad Words

the-real-seebs:

ursulavernon:

            Frogs fall out of my mouth when I talk. Toads, too.

            It used to be a problem.

            There was an incident when I was young and cross and fed up parental expectations. My sister, who is the Good One, has gold fall from her lips, and since I could not be her, I had to go a different way.

            So I got frogs. It happens.

            “You’ll grow into it,” the fairy godmother said. “Some curses have cloth-of-gold linings.” She considered this, and her finger drifted to her lower lip, the way it did when she was forgetting things. “Mind you, some curses just grind you down and leave you broken. Some blessings do that too, though. Hmm. What was I saying?”

            I spent a lot of time not talking. I got a slate and wrote things down. It was hard at first, but I hated to drop the frogs in the middle of the road. They got hit by cars, or dried out, miles away from their damp little homes.

            Toads were easier. Toads are tough. After awhile, I learned to feel when a word was a toad and not a frog. I could roll the word around on my tongue and get the flavor before I spoke it. Toad words were drier. Desiccated is a toad word. So is crisp and crisis and obligation. So are elegant and matchstick.

            Frog words were a bit more varied. Murky. Purple. Swinging. Jazz.

            I practiced in the field behind the house, speaking words over and over, sending small creatures hopping into the evening.  I learned to speak some words as either toads or frogs. It’s all in the delivery.

            Love is a frog word, if spoken earnestly, and a toad word if spoken sarcastically. Frogs are not good at sarcasm.

            Toads are masters of it.

            I learned one day that the amphibians are going extinct all over the world, that some of them are vanishing. You go to ponds that should be full of frogs and find them silent. There are a hundred things responsible—fungus and pesticides and acid rain.

            When I heard this, I cried “What!?” so loudly that an adult African bullfrog fell from my lips and I had to catch it. It weighed as much as a small cat. I took it to the pet store and spun them a lie in writing about my cousin going off to college and leaving the frog behind.

            I brooded about frogs for weeks after that, and then eventually, I decided to do something about it.

            I cannot fix the things that kill them. It would take an army of fairy godmothers, and mine retired long ago. Now she goes on long cruises and spreads her wings out across the deck chairs.

            But I can make more.

            I had to get a field guide at first. It was a long process. Say a word and catch it, check the field marks. Most words turn to bronze frogs if I am not paying attention.

            Poison arrow frogs make my lips go numb. I can only do a few of those a day. I go through a lot of chapstick.  

            It is a holding action I am fighting, nothing more. I go to vernal pools and whisper sonnets that turn into wood frogs. I say the words squeak and squill and spring peepers skitter away into the trees. They begin singing almost the moment they emerge.

            I read long legal documents to a growing audience of Fowler’s toads, who blink their goggling eyes up at me. (I wish I could do salamanders. I would read Clive Barker novels aloud and seed the streams with efts and hellbenders. I would fly to Mexico and read love poems in another language to restore the axolotl. Alas, it’s frogs and toads and nothing more. We make do.)

            The woods behind my house are full of singing. The neighbors either learn to love it or move away.

            My sister—the one who speaks gold and diamonds—funds my travels. She speaks less than I do, but for me and my amphibian friends, she will vomit rubies and sapphires. I am grateful.

            I am practicing reading modernist revolutionary poetry aloud. My accent is atrocious. Still, a day will come when the Panamanian golden frog will tumble from my lips, and I will catch it and hold it, and whatever word I spoke, I’ll say again and again, until I stand at the center of a sea of yellow skins, and make from my curse at last a cloth of gold.

Terri Windling posted recently about the old fairy tale of frogs falling from a girl’s lips, and I started thinking about what I’d do if that happened to me, and…well…

!.

You know how if you go through years and years of “best science fiction short stories”, every so often you find some short story you’ve never heard of before, but it’s just amazing and brilliant and leaves you wondering why you never read stories with that plot before? This is one of those.

Seriously, wow.

No, this isn’t Frozen. But yes, this is brilliant storytelling based on an old fairy tale that may be familiar to some.
