༺ The Rat & The Monster ༻

By xXxJazzy B. RealxXx

Drama / Romance

Author's Note: Dissension


"Man is born free, and everywhere he is in shackles." ~ Rousseau


                                        ❄~Synopsis~


                                        "Oh, good heavens."

             "The Prince of Thieves and the Queen of Beasts."

    "It's blasphemous. An impoverished thief of illegitimate birth and a sorceress practicing witchcraft should not have been given immunity, let alone a seat within royal ranks, and that in itself is abominable."

                             "But which one is a worse sort?"

"They are both born from filth and have proven to be incapable of a stable moral conscience. Why should that suddenly change because they decide that they want to be 'liked'? They will simply and eventually succumb to old habits once they feel unaccepted enough, which was the entire reason for their falls from grace in the first place."

"Agreed. Once a rat, always a rat, and once a monster, always a monster."

Can either ex-outlaw overcome the insecurities of being diminished to labels, or will the past rear up like a tidal wave and sweep them from the paths of their future? Will they run away again to reclaim the autonomy they initially pined after, or will emotional escapism, even through an unlikely friendship, create more disruption in their sovereign houses?

When the soon-to-be prince is stationed in Arendelle without the return of the Coronian King's daughter, the thin lines between toleration and biogtry are exploited.

"It was reminiscent of those times when, like the anti hero of some ancient drama, you are called to comply with painful, new facts, and yet you will still stick to the facade you know." Anna Palmer


                                          ❄ Author Note


I always thought it was unrealistic for Eugene and Elsa to be welcomed into royalty without dissension. Their crimes, after all, still happened, and other monarchs, including their own natives and politicians, weren't there to witness their true characters when the scenarios with Anna or Rapunzel took place.

Popular canon opinions should've entailed Eugene embezzling, conning, and exploiting the Coronian house as Prince Consort, and Elsa once again "dooming the lands" with sorcery. Most also would've been bitter about destroyed crops and past thefts made on their estates, so it's an inescapable setup for prejudice via ignorance, is it not?

Although the politics and catharic compassion will be the external layer, the plot does orbit around a Rapunzel x Eugene x Elsa overtone, so the obscurity in that building undercurrent will be on the frontier of this story (do not expect cliched friction, however).

In hindsight, the judgmental perceptions outsiders have of their reputations ultimately put a strain on both Corona's and Arendelle's relationships with their allies, whom are not only mistrusting of Eugene and Elsa, but of Rapunzel's parents and Arendelle's regime. That chaos opens up the frequency waves for a supportive friendship to build (whereas Anna and Rapunzel could neither relate to nor understand how that level of discrimination feels), along with the platform for some "mixed" chemistry to slowly manifest as they grow to value each other's true characters and struggle to belong amongst royal circles.

If that is not going to be your thing, then this has been a tsunami alert.

(❄)

Let me also clarify a misconception in the Tangled/Frozen crossover category on behalf of the story's portrayal.

Tangled and Frozen are not canonically connected in the Disney universe.

The former takes place in the 1700s (though Nathan Greno says the 15th century) and Frozen takes place in the 1840s. This is official information, and is quite obvious just by the dramatic differences in clothing (King Agdar's military uniform vs. Coronian King's medieval one), monarchy, setting, and etc. Frozen is obviously a bit closer to the Industrial Era than Tangled is (and it's laughable that the medieval-looking characters would ever be riding bikes down the halls in Tangled).

Jennifer Lee has since answered the Tangled/Frozen fan-speculations with, "They have wonderful imaginations," while the director of Tangled had to be proven by a Frozen fan that "their girl" was ever an Easter Egg in Frozen.

Unless you'd like to declare that Hans is also in Big Hero 6, that Woody and co in A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo, Princess Aurora in Oliver & Company, or Stitch in Treasure Planet are all canon setups, remember that Easter Eggs have been dropped for years in other franchises for no other reason than Finding Waldo entertainment. For that, this story will be a genuine crossover with a completely different setting from the Easter Egg situation in Frozen, so please do not tell me in multiple private messages that I am, "messing up the canon." It has been very rude when there never was a canon between them to begin with.
