Sometimes I feel like I need some deep reason for a princess to be my favorite. Like when people say that Cinderella or Rapunzel are their favorite because they have similar family situations and they see themselves in Cinderella/Rapunzel. Obviously this is a completely valid reason for a princess being your favorite, but I feel like when I tell someone that Aurora is my favorite and my reason is just that I like her it isn’t valid.
I used to have these dreams of this boy I’d never met before. All this past summer, I wouldn’t have a dream without him. We were always talking at sunset, until one day in August the sun actually set in the dream. I haven’t seen him since. I know I just turned 16, but I really hope that the sun setting means I find my Prince soon! I’ve been nonstop watching the first 3 princess movies, simply because all of the songs fill my heart with hope. I feel like Briar Rose before she knew she was Aurora!
I bought a dress entirely because it reminded me of Aurora’s peasant outfit. It was an impulse buy; I normally never wear dresses! But I feel so elegant and cute in it that I can’t help loving it. Sometimes when I’m picking apples off the trees in my backyard I start singing Once Upon A Dream. I feel like I have the Disney magic back and I love it!
“i’m a gay boy who fully identifies as male, but i can’t help but wish that i, too, could be a disneyland princess for a day. i’ve been looking at photography of aurora and cinderella at the parks, and the gowns are so beautiful and the wigs are so lovely, i really begrudge the fact that i’ll never be able to get cast in a role like that“
“i always love how aurora manages to respect her aunts, while still breaking the rules and having agency- but still in a responsible way that keeps her as a good role model. the fairies tell her not to talk to anyone, and she doesn’t, until phillip softens up a little. instead of never seeing him again, she invites him to the cottage so that the three fairies can meet him. when her true identity is revealed, she releases her emotions in a healthy way, but also chooses to go to the castle “
