*Sigh*I lost all my progress from THEDisneyFreak, so I'm just going to re-post this article
Here is the problem with most people on Merida: she's selfish and wanted to change her mom. I can agree with that yes, but she changed and genuinely apologized in the end. Now I'm not going to bring up Ariel, they are very different but comparing them makes me look desperate. You're free to disagree, we all have opinions.
Though yes. I'm aware an article like this has just been written but the author is fine with it, I've been writing this for the past two days.
I used to hate the idea of Brave and Merida herself. I thought there was no possible way she would become my favorite or beat Rapunzel, but apparently she did. At first I thought she was a horrible character, 'Why can't she just listen to her mom and deal with it.' But just imagine yourself in her place....having every single day scheduled, having to become what you don't want to be. Every single minute you're being patrolled by your mother. People complain that she complains too much, what kind of sixteen year old wants to have her life planned out? No one, unless on the rare occasion.
