MaidofOrlean's current icon.
A few months hace I was dado the task to put together a FOTM articulo for MaidofOrleans. Unfortunately real life forced me to become really unactive on this site, and every time I tried to work on it, o create iconos for it, I always had to put it on the back burner. I feel really horrible for this though, especially because of how wonderful a user MaidofOrleans is. So I hope all of tu have a nice time lectura this interview and getting to know her a little better. She definitely deserves it. Though with how active and amazing she is on the site, it's probably even not all that necessary! I hope tu all enjoy it! (Sorry again for being so late.) All pics were made por me.
1. How does it feel to be fan of the Month?
It feels absolutely amazing. I was so surprised when I was notified since I didn't expect it at all! I am not a regularly active user because I tend to be busy with school, so I'm usually only really active during school breaks. Nevertheless it is so flattering to be recognized in this way!
2. Your favorito! Princess? Why?
For the past several years Belle has remained firmly at the parte superior, arriba of my list. I really relate to her desire for adventure and her amor of books. I think that her bravery and ability to see past the surface of people are incredibly admirable. I think that the real reason why she has unwaveringly been my favorito! for so long is that she reminds me of my best friend. My best friend’s favorito! fairy tale has always been Beauty and the Beast, and so now that we go to college in different states watching Disney’s Beauty and the Beast reminds me of her and helps me to bridge the distance between us. Belle is both a comfort to me and a role model.
3. Your least favorito! Princess? Why?
Rapunzel has remained my least favorito! ever since enredados was released, although if Anna and Elsa are ever coronated Anna just might steal the spot from her. I don’t dislike Rapunzel, I simply find that her movie seems like it’s forcing me to like her, and that really bothers me. It makes her come across as a Mary Sue. She’s just a little too quirky, a little too cute, and a little too perfect.
4. Has your favorito! princess ever changed?
Yes, a few times. My childhood favorito! was Ariel. I was OBSESSED with her. No really, I would watch The Little Mermaid at least once a week, dreamily walk around canto “Part of That World,” force my father to act out scenes from the movie (me being Ariel, he being everyone else), and anytime I went swimming I spent the whole time pretending I was a mermaid. I didn’t even get my first haircut until I was in the third grade because I wanted my hair to be like Ariel’s! After Ariel I discovered Belle because my best friend loved her. Then for a brief time in middle school Aurora became my favorite, after which Belle reinstated herself. After I first saw The Princess and the Frog, Tiana held the título for a while, but once again Belle snuck her way back to the top, and she has remained there ever since.
5. Your favorito! Prince? Why?
That’s a tough one, I don’t really have a favorito! princes list. I’d probably say Shang, because beneath the cold military exterior tu can see his warm and honestly adorable personality. I amor the scene where he accepts the sword from his father, and when he tells mulan “You fight good.”
6. Your least favorito! Prince? Why?
Prince Charming. No surprises here haha. He has no personality and doesn’t even try to find cenicienta himself, instead leaving it to the Grand Duke. I much prefer Kit from the 2015 live action Cinderella.
7. Your favorito! DP movie?
Beauty and the Beast! I amor the message it sends, and the characters and animación are wonderful. There isn’t a single character in this movie that I dislike. The soundtrack can send shivers down my spine and bring tears to my eyes. I think it is the best movie disney has ever done.
8. Your least favorito! DP movie?
Unfortunately I’m going to have to say Cinderella. It’s a beautiful and timeless film, but the mice grate on my nerves enough to put it at the bottom of my list. (If we are including Elsa and Anna in the lineup though, then frozen is my least favorite.)
9. If tu could choose one disney heroine to be in the line-up, who would it be? Where would they rank on your pretty lista and favorito! list?
Kida!!! Atlantis: The lost Empire is one of my favorito! non-DP movies, and I’ve always thought she deserved to be a part of the lineup. I amor her desire to help her people and her willingness to do anything for them, as well as her curiosity for history. She would be fourth on my favoritos list, and seventh on my prettiest list.
10. Which Princess do tu relate to most?
Definitely Belle. I share a desire for adventure and a amor of libros with her, as well as an ability to see the good in people. I can also relate to Pocahontas and Aurora.
11. Who is your...
Most underrated? Merida
favorito! canto voice? Aurora
Least favorito! canto voice? Rapunzel
Most annoying? Rapunzel
Least annoying? Belle
12. Your favorito! DP couple?
Hmmm another tough one. I’ve never made a favorito! couples lista before. I’d probably say Tiana and Naveen, because they both change each other for the better.
13. Your least favorito! DP couple?
mulan and Shang. Their relationship feels very shoe-horned in at the end. I would have preferred it if they had just remained friends.
14. Your favorito! DP Outfit?
Tiana’s white dream dress! It is so gorgeous and simple, and it comes with a fabulous feather boa!
15. Your least favorito! DP Outfit?
Probably Jasmine’s dark purple outfit that she wears at the very end of Aladdin. I’m not a fan of most of her outfits, but this one is the worst in my opinion. I don’t like that shade of purple on her.
16. What is your favorito! song from each DP movie? (It doesn't have to be sung por the DP)
Snow White: Someday My Prince Will Come
Cinderella: So This Is amor
Sleeping Beauty: I Wonder
The Little Mermaid: Poor Unfortunate Souls
Beauty and the Beast: Belle (reprise)
Aladdin: Prince Ali
Pocahontas: colores of the Wind
Mulan: I’ll Make a Man Out of tu
Princess and the Frog: Almost There
Tangled: I See the Light
Brave: Noble Maiden Fair

18. favorito! and least favorito! DP sidekick?
19. favorito! DP Quote?
“The flor that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.”
20. favorito! disney movie? (Not being a DP o pixar movie)
Atlantis: The lost Empire
21. favorito! pixar movie?
Can it be a DP movie? If so then Brave. If not, then probably WALL-E.
22. Which DP do tu want to be best friends with?
Merida! She could teach me archery and falconry and stuff. It would be so much fun.
23. Which DP do tu think tu would not get along with?
Honestly, none of them. I tend to get along with most people I meet. I usually see the good in people and focus on it, so it’s rare for me to meet someone I dislike o who rubs me the wrong way.
24. favorito! crossover couple? (the princess with another disney character o prince)
cenicienta and Tiana. I think they would be the most adorable couple! They are both very driven, but have enough differences that their relationship would remain interesting. Tiana tends to be somewhat judgmental while cenicienta is very accepting. I think that Cinderella’s kindness would soften some of Tiana’s sharp edges, while Tiana’s outspokenness would teach cenicienta that sometimes it’s ok to be a little más forceful.
25. Have tu ever been to any of the disney theme parks? Which one? If not, which one would tu like to go to?
I have been to both Disneyland and disney World once each. Of the two I preferred Disneyland. I got to meet Pocahontas when I was at disney World though! She is the only princess I’ve ever met. She complimented me on my hat. :)
26. CGI o Hand-drawn animation?
Both are beautiful, but I have to say hand drawn animation. In CGI things can be very detailed, but characters’ skin tends to look plasticky, which is annoying. I enjoy the simple beauty of hand drawn animation, as well as the versatility that can come from the different styles.
27. What's your favorito! activity on Fanpop?
Probably participating in countdowns o making my own. They are always very interesting, and it’s nice to look adelante, hacia adelante to the siguiente encuesta in the countdown.
28. What are your hopes on...
Fanpop? That we will continue to attract new and active users, and that those who are already here will continue being the wonderful people they are.
Upcoming disney movies? I am INCREDIBLY excited for Moana! I fear that they might be rushing its development, but I am hopeful nonetheless. A seafaring princess sounds so cool.
Future disney movies? I hope we get más disney Princess movies. I amor the franchise, and while some feel that the lineup is getting too crowded, I say the más the merrier!
29. If tu woke up one día and were stuck in a disney movie, which movie would tu want it to be?
Brave, because I could do fun things with Merida once the oso, oso de issue got itself sorted out. o Beauty and the Beast because Belle could give me some really great book recommendations.
