No marriage required.
I have to say, Charlotte was one of the most surprising things about this film. They could have made her annoying but instead make her a very funny character. They could have made her a spoiled brat, but while she is a bit spoiled, instead they made her a very caring friend and pretty much a sister to Tiana. They could have made her a bland character just someone for Naveen to have to marry, but instead they gave her an actual personality and made her likable. Finally, this scene.
Even though it’s obvious that to Charlotte, finding true love is her dream, her ‘restaurant’, she is more than willing to give it up for her friend. She doesn’t even take a few moments to think it over. Her and Tiana have such a strong friendship, she would rather let her friend - who has found true love, not just a simple crush or anything like that - live happily ever after herself than marry a prince. And afterwards, she stays positive about it, not only because her best friend is happy, but she’s knows she’ll find her prince someday too, she just has to wait a little longer, and that’s perfectly fine with her.
Probably one of the best side characters and role models in the Disney canon.
For all the changes and stuff that production had to go through, Charlotte has to be the best thing to come out of it.
The question was:
“I’m confused. For the first time EVER that I can recall, I am not satisfied with the timey-ness of this ep.
For all the Halia Meguid fans who asked for this to be made rebloggable :)
formally leaving the current DW fandom.
I’m not giving it up because I refuse to let some hack that hardly anyone is going to remember in ~10 years pry me away from a show that existed long before he got there, and will thrive on for long after he is mercifully gone. But … bless this post for its accuracy.
Here’s what irks me about what Moffat is doing:
Instead of BUILDING off of Doctor Who and it’s 50 years of history, he’s inserting his creations into what has already happened.
It could be good for storytelling, only time will tell, but right now it just feels like he’s fiddling with things he shouldn’t be allowed to touch, as opposed to simply continuing on and moving forward.
This is because he is having trouble creating new ideas and characters that fans actually LIKE. The ratings were flat through s5-6 and have hit a major rut in s7. And during the ‘heyday’ of Amy and River, they should have been kicking ass in the favorite companion polls. But they weren’t - they were still getting beaten by Rose Tyler and Donna Noble. That’s unheard of!
So OF COURSE he’s trying to latch on to old canon. It’s more popular than his canon - it’s more memorable than his canon. If he wants his canon to be memorable at all, he needs to latch onto something else that’s better. Because neither his ships nor his guest stars nor his ~plots~ are getting it done.
Put one character or ship and one of these symbols (or more) in my ask box, and I’ll let you know the following for that character/ship:

☠ : Drinking/drunk headcanon
☼ : Childhood headcanon
⋆ : Sex headcanon
☮ : Bedroom/house/living quarters headcanon
☄ : Any AU headcanon (modern, school, medieval, and so on)
♤ : Cooking headcanon
☻ : Mood headcanon
♒ : Any other question of your choosing
