Every Auburn fan just thanked Michigan State
That was quite exciting. I have watched more football today than I have in my entire life.
Like I said in my previous ask, I’m not trying to be rude here, but why in the actual heck does she HAVE to be blonde?! I know the story describes her as having golden (different than blonde, mind you) hair, but it didn’t really serve any specific purpose to the story. Her long hair did, though. Take it this way, what if her hair had originally been described as ‘long as brown’ or ‘long and black’? Would that change the story in any way? Absolutely not!
If they were so concerned about keeping things in strict, proper appearances, they would not have made Red the wolf, they would not have made Rumplestiltskin the crocodile, they would not have made Peter Pan an old man disguised as a young teen, they wouldn’t have taken Tinkerbell’s wings, etc etc. Fun fact: did you know the original Little Mermaid tale never gave a hair color for her? Disney made it the iconic red that it is. They actually were disputing on making Ariel a blonde or a red, but went with the later.
In the end, it doesn’t matter. It really, truthfully does not matter. What matters is if they keep her characteristics, her personality, and her long hair (which is integral to the story). I’d rather people judge a character based on their character and personality than what they look like. I really have high hopes that Alexandra Metz is going to rock all of our socks off. She’s going to be gorgeous in the role, I can already tell.
It’s things like this that make me glad that I still have a sense of humor.
