"And now a message, from your future president of america"
Sorry I haven't made an article in a while... I promised i'd make ya'll a count-down before New Years, but I was depressed after I found no gifts under the Christmas tree u.u
...JUST KIDDING!...Christmas is like that every year... NOW ONTO THE ARTICLE.
Second of all, let me just say that I think Ariel has a TON of haters. She's like Justin Beiber in the Disney World, (except she's a more decent thing to argue over) but when really...the ones who disagree AND the fans are making a big deal. And the big question is always "Is Ariel the most irresponsible princess of all?" , well...not THAT irresponsible, but kinda. Okay, lemme get straight to the point. (hehe....I typed 'lemme' for the first time.) The never-ending debate here is, if Ariel was being too reckless when she signed a contract with the devil.
"You better not block my shot"- Ariel
But I actually support the fans, who believe her choice was fine. I mean if you want her to change the risk, what would it be? You KNOW you wouldn't have it any other way. If she didn't take the risk, would she get the chance to even be a human? No. She did, and she fulfilled her goal. I know what your thinking, 'One sided love at first sight sucks, so your comment is not valid' but Eric DID want one of those girls that LITERALLY aren't like the others. (By others I mean princesses.) They all have fine manners, they play croquet, and they're plenty smart. So if they were both human (Ariel and Eric) and on a dating site, they would match. Also at first she only wanted to be a human you know....she wanted spoons...and forks...and plates. But then she met Eric...and she was eager to be a human. Because a mermaid can get all the spoons and forks of the shore, but she'll NEVER get a human boyfriend.

And I know the other debate, saying that she sacrificed too much for true love, but if you see that she's a helpless teenager, that knows that there's nothing she'll need to do at the see, why stay home? If you ignore the age, you'll see that her love that she's just DESTINED to marry is far away, and no matter how many men Triton will introduce, Ariel will never get away from home, unless she's with him. So, what do you expect her to do? Also, Triton wants to get her married, away from her home, living a life and taking responsibilities. So what's there to lose? Other than living in 1/3 of the Earth with sailors and predators either looking at your human places or the TAIL?
I also forgot about the rest of her personality. She's smart enough to fall for someone sweet rather than a douche-bag for sure. And I think it's cute how she's so naive and open. She's fun to watch, kind of like she's in another world. Literally. She's not genius, university smart. Just because she outran a shark, doesn't mean that she's a genius. She didn't use physics or anything related to I.Q... it was just out of luck. Now, you may say the same about Mulan when she survived the war. No. It didn't happen all out of luck and fate. She used her smarts, not prayers, to get out of war. You can't say the same about Ariel.
Now her body? Well just a tad too much skinny...it actually looks kinda unhealthy. But her face and voice makes it all seem perfect. It's a tad bit creepy how her lips have no shape, but that's acceptable because big eyes look good with shape-less lips. Her hair is so unique it kinda passes everyone else's hair, (except for Aurora's and Poca's, duh.) it's voluminous, fire-engine red, and her boring complexion makes her hair stand-out. BAZINGA! Not only that, but her hair was even better after years and years of LIVING in water. That means she looks even better with messy hair. I've also noticed how Ariel makes a huge popularity bonus for being a mermaid. If it wasn't for her uniqueness, i'm not sure she would've been as popular. If she was a... country girl who found out about a handsome prince, that would seem to modern. So putting in a green fish-tail and lavender sea shell bra, was cool.
In conclusion, i'll just say that Ariel was a mermaid, who had the flaws of a normal, human teenager. She made many mistakes, and tried to find herself. Cries over love, but i'm sure some of you had the experience ;) ...No? Eh... then your probably an 80's kid or whatever...
But seriously, Ariel's pretty much what we call 'human'. Deep down, REALLY DEEP, [b]SINK IN THERE[b]...she's what us humans call...
a hot mess.
Just kidding, she's human ;)
And i'll end it hear as always, with my favorite DeviantArt picture of Ariel :D
