The Little Mermaid 1989
Do you guys know how long it took me to work out that he has seven daughters because there are seven seas?
Which sea is Ariel?
Fucking red sea.
Have you seen her hair.
Attina- Bering sea (Bering is the largest, Attina is the oldest)
Alana- Black sea (hair)
Adella- Mediterranean sea (personality is romantic)
Aquata- Coral sea (personality is shy)
Arista- White sea (hair)
Andrina- Caribbean sea (personality is carefree)
Ariel- Red sea (hair)
Was their mother the Dead Sea?
I’m just like:
Here’s one of the reasons I don’t buy the cynical interpretation that Ariel gives up her identity for a man.
This screencap comes from her introductory scene. She’s searching through a shipwreck for human artifacts–which is her passion–when suddenly she’s attacked by a shark.
While fleeing, she accidentally drops her bag full of artifacts right in the shark’s path. Without hesitating, she chooses her passion over her safety, risking her life for a dinglehopper.
The girl is an anthropologist who studies humans. That’s her passion, that’s how she spends her time…that’s her identity.
Sure, Eric is the catalyst that leads Ariel to changing her species and leaving her family–he certainly intensifies her feelings–but they’re feelings she already has, and they dictate most of her life.
If Ariel had the chance to become a human before she met Eric, everything that we know about her suggests that she probably would.
Ariel is an anthropologist, I stand by this
Triton: Fuck your passion!
it took me a second to understand the brilliance of that last reblog
arielle – the little mermaid III
..shit just got real.
Not real, alas.
Now this is a mermaid princess worthy of the new Aquaman.
