friendly reminder that bb!regina may have been sweet and good and adorable
but she was also snarky and a little snippy and had a perf ~bitch pls~ face and was bold enough to talk back to her terrifyingly powerful mother
she was no delicate little flower, she was just as multifaceted as she is now :)
#Yeah it’s pretty fucking annoying actually#Because Regina has all the characteristic of the classic Disney Princess#She has a strong bond with her animal companion#She’s a beauty but a funny girl who’s very different from the rest of the folks in FTL#Running around in men’s clothes bucking authority figures with righteous indignation#Longing for something more from life with a street rat in whom she sees their true wroth#Those are the qualities and behaviors we’ve come to expect from the Disney Princess we grew up with#And that’s the real tragedy#In any other story SHE would have been the hero#But fate cast her as the villain#Is why Regina is so damn compelling as a character#and such a PERFECT take down of the Grimm intrepation of the Snow White story#(and by extension Walt’s)#of a villainous woman who envys youth—because of course a woman’s only real value is her beauty#The old hag who offers up Adam’s Bane was a little girl once too#…and of course if Swan Queen was endgame then#you know they could have stuck the landing on that aseop#But what the hell do I know?
