with 更多 pictures) PERSONALITY OF AURORA (2/3)
This is part two of the personality of Aurora as how I see it
when I watch Sleeping Beauty; mostly chronological. link
link 6.Calm and Cautious/Shy
9.Conflicted 10.…see part 3 6 CALM and CAUTIOUS/SHY
When she notices that she’s not dancing with her animal 老友记 anymore but some stranger who has come up from behind to sing and dance with her - what does she do? Scream? Run? Cry? No. Rather, she calmly tries to get away.
In the four times Aurora removes her hands from Phillip, you’ll see that she is gradually becoming less distrusting of his gentle persistence:
--removes her hand from his two hands with her other hand
--removes her hand from his two hands
--removes her hand from his one hand
--removes her hand from his touch
She has wondered and has wanted to be rebellious regarding strangers, but when she finally meets one she’s understandably shy. Shy, but still calm and curious/wondering. 7 RESPONSIBLE
>Phillip: Who are you, what’s your name?
>Aurora: Hmm? Oh, my name. Why, it’s, it’s … Oh no, no, I can’t, I … Goodbye! [runs off]
Responsibility isn’t just not making mistakes; it’s also realizing them and correcting them. Yes - she did talk to a stranger and had a dance but when she was about to share personal information she realizes that she got caught up in the moment.
She remembers the rules and despite her own desires for rebellion 或者 how she thinks the rules imposed on her are unfair, she runs away.
(And later, when she returns home:
>Oh 你 darlings, this is the happiest 日 of my life. Everything’s so wonderful, just wait till 你 meet him.
>But, but I can’t! He’s coming here tonight, I promised to meet him.
I don’t doubt that she’s infatuated (=love at first sight), but, being responsible, she’s also concerned about breaking her promise to him.) 8 ASSERTIVE
>Phillip: But when will I see 你 again? >Aurora: Oh never, never!
>Phillip: Never? >Aurora: Well, maybe someday.
>Phillip: When, tomorrow? >Aurora: Oh no, this evening.
>Phillip: Where? >Aurora: At the cottage, in the glen.
This act of making the 日期 reveals much of her personality even if it is complex
wants to explore her romantic side
acts accordingly to her age
did and plans to do
something obviously against her aunts wishes (=have a date)
rather than carelessly running off with him 或者 having a secret romance, she respects her guardian’s concern about strangers. Before things escalate, she wants him to meet her aunts 9 CONFLICTED
>But that’s impossible! How could I marry a prince, I’d have to be…
Within moments she learns who she actually is
and subsequently everything she has ever been
and has ever known
is, in essence, a lie.
--She’s not a peasant, but a princess
--Her parents are still alive and well
--Her guardian’s weren’t her aunt, but faries
--She cannot create a romance for herself because she’s betrothed
--By the end of this scene, she’s not even sure of her own name.
Poor Aurora is so confused that breaks down crying, twice; like anyone under the circumstances I suspect.
In fact, her emotional conflict is enough for her fairy aunts to reconsider her betrothal. Particularly Merriweather and Fauna. The same fairy aunts who had spent the 前一个 sixteen years living as morals to ultimately bring her to this situation.
Part 3 coming soon...
