Sooner or later it would happen, so why wait more? Here I am to my first (and theme-predictable) article about my fav DPs. It doesn't have a lot of surprises, but I hope you find my text interesting. However, even if you dislike it, there are some images that might distract you =D . And I'm brazilian, so forgive me if my english isn't always perfect.
#10 - Aurora
I don't even dislike her and I think that's impossible, she's kind, graceful and responsible. You can't just hate someone for having little screen time! However, I still wish she had ran away from the fairies after they told her she had to marry the Prince. And then she would be found by the raven.
#9 - Snow White
OK, I'm being a little predictable in my bottom princess, ain't I? This girl is easier to understand than Aurora, and I don't mind she being that sweet and kind, but it really bothers me when she allows the Queen to enter the Dwarfes cottage. But what I like the most about her is the way that although being THAT afraid of her stepmother, she stays most of the movie smiling and dancing as if she didn't even remember that.
#8 - Jasmine
My #8 princess has more qualities than the bottom 2, but at the same time, she has more defects too. I like how independent she is, and how she won't sacrifice her life because of a stupid rule, but I don't like the way she treats people at all. It's not that she has done something wrong, but I think that princesses don't need to be that arrogant to be rebellious. However I think that she flawed when she allowed the guards to take Aladdin away because there were "orders from Jafar". Isn't she the princess?
#7 - Pocahontas
Another princess that isn't that easy to understand. She changes a lot during her movie, she starts fun and free-spirited and ends it serious. I think that wasn't necessary in her maturation process. And I'd like to understand if her main goal was to protect her people or stay with John. However, I love her wisdom, her love with nature and her courage.
#6 - Belle
This one is usually is higher in people's lists, but I don't love her enough to put her above my TOP 5 Girls, but I'd say she's far away from Pocahontas. I identify with her being an outcast, I like the way she reacts to people who talk bad things about her and her behavior on the village overall. But I don't find her to be THAT smart. I ask myself if she really NEEDED to stay in the castle instead of her father. Couldn't she just have called Gaston or someone else to save him? She was a little dumb about going to the West Wing too.
#5 - Mulan
We have two Mulans: One at the beginning and another in the end of the movie. I love both of them and I love her trajectory. I love how smart, corageous and at the same time free-spirited and insecure she is. And she might be the only one whose actions definetively aren't about marrying someone, but she used her smartness to get a good man - Wouldn't you like to stay for Dinner?
#4 - Cinderella
She's higher than in most people's lists. The matter is that I like princesses that sound real. And Cinderella certainly reminds me of some girl that might be suffering in the hands of some bad stepmother and that remains happy, dreamy and singing all the time. I disagree with people that say she's naive. What she could do? Run away from the house and starve? The only thing she could do was to dream, and she did it that so sweetly. I love how she could say a lot of things when she got her slipper in the pocket, but just said - But you see, I have the other slipper
#3 - Rapunzel
Disney' newest princess went very far in my countdown, being nearly tied with Cindy. I currently don't know if the fact of her being a mix-up of previous princess has to be considered a bad thing, but she doesn't need to be original to be a loving character. She is kind and loves the animals like Aurora and Snow White, dreamy like Cinderella, fun and free-spirited as Ariel and treats the hot guy just like Belle and Jasmine do. And she HAS an original treat: Her girlish insecurity, that provides a very funny scene. You can't easily manage to acquire such qualities being locked 18 years in a tower!
#2 - Tiana
This may have come as the biggest surprise of my countdown. I think it's so unfair how Tiana is always in the bottom of people's lists. I admire her very much for her hard working life and centration in making her dream come true. And I disagree about she being boring (she says a lot of funny jokes and she's very sarcasic) or not dreamy (if she wasn't, she wouldn't have kissed Naveen or wished upon a star).
#1 - Ariel
Definetively not a surprise. All my icons are about her and.. Hey! She's almost everyone's favorite princess. And my reasons aren't much diferent: She's lovely, pretty, rebellious but kind at the same time, fun and free spirited. Most of the audience notices that she made a big mistake when traded her voice for legs, but just look at this girl's smile! Can you really blame this lady for trusting her qualities to make her dreams come true?
So, here it ends! Please don't leave comments full of hate, be easy on me! LOL
Tell me what our lists have of similar and diferent, what you agree and disagree... I'm waiting the comments, hope you enjoyed!
