So, I decided I don't contribute nearly enough, probably because I lose at everything. But despite the awfulness that is me, I still want to write 更多 articles. So, here are my opinions about Snow White. It'll be long, rambling, and I doubt any of 你 will read it all the way through, but here it is anyway. In the slim chance that anyone is interested. MacytheStrange's Opinions On Snow White
To some people, 灰姑娘 has always represented someone making the best out of a bad situation. For me, it's Snow White. She's only fourteen and she's made to dress in clothes that are falling apart (and she still looks stylish, but that's another matter). She's made to do work like a scullery maid, when for the past fourteen years she was royalty. Snow White could be 苦 and angry about this, but she isn't. While doing her chores, Snow seems to transport herself to a fantasyland of wishing wells, similar to Belle living in the adventures of her 图书 and Aurora living her dreams in, well, her dreams.
Snow White is optimistic, saying that all 你 have to do is make a wish on a wishing well. This may not be a realistic attitude to take to things, but the girl is barely a teenager, and she's an orphan. There doesn't really seem to be any town 或者 village around that she could viably run away to, and even if she did run away, she'd be running from the queen
, who could easily track her. So, instead she just makes the best out of a bad situation.
And, unlike some of the 迪士尼 Princesses such as Aurora, who immediately dance with the randomly appearing man, when the Prince randomly trespasses into the 城堡 Snow White doesn't immediately just start ballroom dancing with him. She, out of some mixture of shyness at being caught in ratty clothes and GODDAMNED COMMON SENSE, runs back inside while he does his spiel about 'one love'. And then, once she decides that she likes the guy, she goes out onto the balcony to be serenaded. And sends him a 吻乐队（Kiss） via dove. But at least she doesn't start dancing with him 秒 after meeting him. That is a relief.
Another thing I 爱情 about Snow White is her kindness towards others. This is first showcased in the scene right before the Huntsman attempts to assassinate her, when she hears the 迷失 baby bird crying for help. This is also the first sign of her motherly nature, when she runs to it, cradles it her her arms and immediately asks where its parents are. Obviously, it can't tell her in words, and Snow keeps the animal company, telling it to perk up at being separated from it's parents, much as Snow White herself has had to 'perk up' after losing both of her parents. Then she discovers the location of the bird's parents and points them out to the baby bird, bidding it farewell as it flutters away. This scene is one of my 收藏夹 in the movie, as it showcases her motherly, sympathetic yet firm (she is quite firm to the bird about it being optimistic about it's situation), generous personality.
One thing I don't like about Snow White's critics is their opinion that she was weak for being so scared 由 the harmless forest. This is not weakness, this is being human. Snow White is fourteen. She just found that a powerful 皇后乐队 wanted her dead, and she had just had a 刀 pointed at her 由 a scary-looking guy. She had just run away from everything she knew, which would be difficult no matter how bad your life was, and into a dark, probably dangerous forest to which one could assume she'd never ventured. Add to that the fact that it was dark, and the EFFING TWO STORY DROP INTO SWAMP WATER, and anyone would be a bit 更多 than upset after that ordeal. Hey, I'm her age and I'd be just traumatized.
And then, after that experience which most adults probably wouldn't be able to handle, Snow White still does not complain 或者 dwell on her own bad life. Instead, she apologizes to the woodland 动物 for frightening them, which just shows how much she cares for others. She then asks her new woodland 老友记 for 建议 on how to cheer up, and after 唱歌 'A Smile and A Song', she is filled with optimism and says that she knows she'll 'get along somehow'. I think this is super admirable, something terrible happened to her, she had her cry, and then she sang herself back into happiness and gets back to the matter at hand, looking for shelter.
Snow White then shows some of her infamous yet often disputed manipulative side, getting her newfound woodland 老友记 to help her survive. And yes, another thing Snow's critics never really seem to remember is that she literally had to survive in the woods after she was nearly killed. Not many people could survive in the woods, especially after a scary experience, but Snow overcame it and put her skills to use finding a shelter.
Then Snow White finds her shelter, and once again we see her insecurity and desire for people to like her as she fluffs her hair to make herself look presentable before she knocks on the door of the dwarves' cottage. And then, when there is no one home, she meekly steps inside (trespassing: one thing her and her prince have in common!). Then, as all the 动物 and her are cautiously looking around the house, Snow frightens them 由 exclaiming "Oh!" and when they run away, she adds "What a cute little chair!" and giggles. I 爱情 this bit, it kinda seems to me like she was trying to trick them for fun.
We then see her maternal side again when she immediately assumes that the seven people who live in the cottage must be children, and is upset at the thought that they might have no mother. I think this is because she herself has no mother, and knows how bad it is not to have one. Then, being the generous princess she is, she decides to clean their house to surprise them. However, this isn't to the sole means of being kind, she also hopes that with this kindness she could get them to let her stay. This, to me, shows that she can be a bit manipulative and not 'just sweet' as some like to say.
Snow then cleans the house with the help of the woodland creatures, whistling as she works. Snow often gets criticized for taking the simple task of sweeping and having the 动物 do the rest, but Snow White is the only human there, and I don't think birds and deer can sweep. Snow White also seems to be something of a delegator, which is a fancy way of saying that she's kind of bossy. But in a good way. And, as the 动物 work, she always scolds them when they cut corners such as licking plates clean and sweeping dust under rugs. This shows one thing: Snow White don't take your crap. And, the 动物 listen to her immediately. Snow White would DEFINITELY be good at running a business.
Later, after she is awoken 由 the suspicious dwarves, Snow White is friendly and cordial, saying 'how do 你 do', but when the dwarves do not respond she chides them for not answering. And then she says to the distrustful and,well, grumpy
Grumpy, in a slightly teasing tone "you must be Grumpy!" while crossing her arms in imitation of him. I also 爱情 this side of Snow White, this teasing, silly side. And then, when she senses that she might be kicked back out of this potentially nice home, she bribes the dwarves with pies. Some people criticize her for doing nothing but cooking and cleaning, but she's in a bad situation and those are the skills she has to work with. If 你 have skills, 你 should make use of them. And, later, when the dwarves tell her that they'd washed 'recently', Snow either tells that they are lying, 或者 is just smart enough to check. Either way, she once again bribes them to wash with the promise of food.
And, after dinner, she laughs and dances with the dwarves as well as sings and tells the story of her and her prince, a scene I 爱情 because it shows Snow White's dreamy and romantic nature. And later she shows her maternal side, telling the dwarves that it is their bedtime. When they offer her their beds she is hesitant, but she takes their offer after they insist. Another sweet scene is when she is praying before she goes to sleep, and blesses the seven dwarves who took her in. She pays special attention to the one dwarf who doesn't seem to like her, saying "Oh, and please let Grumpy like me." This is the best example in the film of how much she wants people to like her.
And, he does seem to like her, as he warns her about strangers like all the other dwarves when they go off to work. Snow White seems pleased that he cared, as she always likes people who like her. Later, when she deliberately disregards the 建议 the dwarves gave her, she was certainly making a mistake. But, it is only one mistake, and basically every 迪士尼 Princess has one mistake. To be honest, I think people judge Snow White either too harshly 或者 too lightly as far as Snow White eating the 苹果 is concerned.
And, after the prince awakes her and before he (ironically, this is what Snow wished for when she bit the apple) takes her away to his castle, Snow White hasn't forgotten the dwarfs, and she gives each one a 吻乐队（Kiss） on the head and a farewell before she goes off to her happy ending. A happy ending that she deserves
. So, yeah. That was basically my long, rambling opinion on Snow White. I really 爱情 her, she's fourth on my list, and I hope I did her justice in this. I 爱情 Snow White's multi-faceted personality, her determination, her manipulative and bossy side, her generous and sweet side, all of it! So, yeah. I hope 你 enjoyed the article.
