Congratulations cromulanfav! :D
She's October's princess of the month! آپ really deserved this - you're always online and work so hard to contribute. آپ definitely have put a lot into this spot and it's great to see آپ get some appreciation for that. :)
In honour of her achievement, here's an interview with our پرستار of the month!




1) How does it feel to be پرستار of the month?
I don't know, happy. Many good things have happened to me lately, so I wasn't as exicted about being پرستار of the ماہ as I could have been. But I'm happy that it was Mulan month.

2) Who are your favourite princesses and why?
Well, Mulan absolutely. I mostly like her intelligence and creativity and how she thinks in a completely different way. آپ have all heard this before so I'm not going to bother you. She has all the characteristics of a genius. I also love Jasmine, she's my childhood favourite. I love her attitude, and how she voices her opinion. And then there is is Cinderella, who is totally opposite from جیسمین, یاسمین and Mulan, and from me too. She is just so beautiful, both inside and out.

I couldn’t resist. I had a sudden urge to write this article. I don’t know why, because I usually don’t speak about “hotness” in any kind of way. But anyways, I think this فہرست is awfully similar to my پسندیدہ prince list. I have different reasons for the placements, though, and while writing this I actually found out that I do think about hotness of the princes… erm… every day. I just don’t say anything aloud. Just in case if آپ haven’t read my link, please read it first otherwise آپ won’t understand a word I’m saying.

9. Adam
I’ve کہا this before: I think that Adam is temperamental and passive at the same time. I really didn’t know that was even possible. I’ve also کہا that I think his love isn’t real. That’s why he’s so low on my list. Plus, he is one of the ugliest princes and since this is a hottest prince article, I felt like I have to think of the princes’ looks, too. No, I do not think he’s ugly. He’s just the ugliest. This wasn’t a surprise for...

These bitches better watch out, because srsly, we're gonna steal their men.
It's been a long time since I wrote an article, but I guess we could say "I'm back".
In honour of Princes month, I decided to write an مضمون on the hottest pieces of ass- I mean, the hottest princes. >.>
This'll probably be fun to read because I'm trying to eat and type at the same time whilst there are a gazillion fireworks going off outside (Google Bonfire Night. :/) which is all helped سے طرف کی me literally making this فہرست up as I go.
SO, yeah, same as always, I'll swear as much as I fucking want, let's go look at those fine men. ;D











9) The Beast

Wait, what? The Prince isn't last? Well, erm, wow. I surprise myself.
Poor Beast. Not only does his personality get increasingly shitty as the film gets on, but he's a right old munter. To be fair, he does spend the film as a beast. But even when he transforms back, well... I think he may have hit every branch of the ugly درخت on the way down. No wonder Belle was confused - is that a man یا a female bodybuilder? He looks like they took Belle, put her on a vast workout and dyed her hair. It's not a...

Scene 32- Different location of the... oh forget this I don't give a damn anymore(I never even got any crap in it, that sounds so weird on so many levels)!

*Meanwhile, on the other side of the godamn path thingy(Read the other parts so you'll understand that I'm getting irritated سے طرف کی this sh!t).*

Porcupine: Okay then, are ya guys going okay back there?

Hella: آپ asked us that a lot of times dude.

Rodney: Yea man, do ya have to do that یا something? I mean, I know آپ don't want to get hurt یا anything, but still.

Porcupine: I swear, آپ guys have no life and not so redish hearts.

Hella: Yeah, but I can take care of myself. Rodney on the other hand-

Rodney: I can take care of myself too! Trust me, I know a ton of stuff about- *Steps on ground and it falls, making Rodney losing his balance and almost fell(While screaming). Well, if Hella didn't try and grab his arm and whacked him onto a دیوار then he would have fallen and, ya know...*

#6 Naveen: Ok so in at no 6 is Naveen from PATF which is my least favourite as I found it a bit disappointing yet great at the same time. I never really liked Naveen as much as the other princes as his a real womanizer and he is so cocky in a way.
Here is my سب, سب سے اوپر 6 favourite princes




Naveen

Cocky & a real womanizer I decided to have him at no 6 as I don’t really like this character at all.

John Smith

A real knight at shining armour

Edward


So hilarious reminds me of Gaston from Beauty & the Beast.

Aladdin

I felt sorry for him as he was a nobody(riff raff سٹریٹ, گلی rat)


Eric


Charming and cute


Adam/beast

Rude & kind-hearted I liked how he gave up his OWN لائبریری for Belle and that part where he dies was so heartbreaking(sniff).

Oh does this guy gripe me. I almost don’t even know where to start. I’ve never hated a Disney character; but what I feel for this chump is probably the closest I’ll ever get. Even though we don’t really get to know him in the first movie (which is what I go by…I don’t count sequels because they piss me off), I think I have a pretty good idea of how he rolls. I can “sort of” relate to him on one thing; his Father wanting him to get married so he can have grandchildren. My Mom wants nothing مزید than for me to find the right guy, settle down, and spit out about two یا three babies…of course I am no where near that. But if she went to the trouble of introducing me to a guy, of course I would be pissed because she knows I don’t like to be set up; but I would never act rude towards the person she was trying to set me up with…it isn’t his fault…which brings me back to Charming. He is so outwardly rude to all the girls at the Ball…rolling his eyes, yawning dramatically…what are you, twelve? Grow up! The only reason he goes after Cinderella is because of her looks. Then after she disappears, he doesn’t go after her, and he doesn’t...

Meanwhile, thousands of miles away...(Scene 31- some different location in the weird paths, I don't care anymore this is getting really annoying! Why do I have to put up with crap?)

Fairy G: Where are we? آپ better be explaining یا else I'll- wait, no, I can't do that since my wand got broke سے طرف کی a certain 'SOMEONE'!

Turtle: Will آپ let me explain first? Sheesh!

Kid 1: Okay, were listening.

Kid 2: We are?

Kid 1: *Whispers* Yes you- yeah were suppose to یا else we'll be stuck in here with that fat old hag.

Fairy G: Did I hear آپ say something about me being a fat old hag?

Kid 1: Uh...

Kid 2: Yes, why?

Turtle: GUYS PLEASE! آپ can destroy each other later, right now آپ guys gotta accomplish your tasks so آپ can get the hell out of here.

Others: Right. *Fairy G. sneers at the kids, one of them pants and sweats(Freak out symptom)*

Turtle: Okay then. Stand on these stone shapes.

This مضمون is based on my opinions only. Before we start, I have to say that I really love almost all of the princes, not just like. So that’s why I’m going to be a bit harsh on some of them.

9. Adam
Yeah, I really have him this low. I do like him at the start and in the end when he’s a human. In between he’s just this wannabe temperamental loner who falls in love… yuck! I mean c’mon! You’re temperamental but you’re passive. That’s kind of odd mixture. Plus, he made himself love Belle. I know he kind of had to do it but still it really makes me sick. Adam is the only prince I only like and not love. But I do love him in the very end when he’s a human. He’s so happy then and that’s why I actually like him, that and the temporary temperamental attitude.

8. Charming
It’s always going to be a competition between Charming and my 7th پسندیدہ prince. I’m just going to go for Charming on the 8th place because he doesn’t really do much in Cinderella. It’s kind of sad because if we saw him enough, I think he would be my 4th یا 5th favorite. Let me...

So, this is probably the last thing I'm going to do for Mulan ماہ : A review, یا ,in another words, my praise to Mulan.

Here are some random thing I noticed while I was watching the movie for the 7th time this month.

The movie starts with the brave Chinese soldier. He lights the fire, which is for some reason, very risky. Many people complain how in this movie, Chinese nation is obsessed with honor, pride and things like that, but I don't see nothing wrong about. It's a positive thing, they are portrayed nicely, better than being portrayed as violent, ignorant and with no electricity.

Than we see Emperor giving some orders. He speaks really funny,why does he has to cut words in such unnatural way: "Send-my-troops-to protect-my-peo-ple".

The movie finally moves on our main character. We see Mulan writing notes, her lazyiness brought her to the point she's being late. This is just so like me. I always write notes for test 10 منٹ before the school.

Scene 30(Wow, actually made 30 scenes in the series)- Another different location in the weird path thingy(Sorry, I forgot the name of that path thing :()...

Rodney: I'm getting a little bit scared right now...

Hella: And? Just keep your body away from me and my stuff!

Rodney: Geez, why must آپ have to be such an ***hole?

Hella: *Stops and turns toward Rodney* What did آپ call me? Ya know, I don't have to be doing this sh!t for آپ ya know, do آپ want me to leave here in this hellhole?

*Shadow spys on them, then lurks away*

Hella: Hey! Are آپ even listening to me?!?!?

Rodney: Oh, um...

Hella: آپ really want me to leave you, don't you? Well fine, so be it.

Rodney: No no, it's just that I thought I saw something lurking behind آپ and stuff and...

Hella: *Turns around* What? *Turns back* Are آپ trying to fool me so could take an easy slip?

Rodney: No I'm not joking, I really did see something...

Many people think Mulan (the movie) has the best quotes of all princess movie, that and the fact it is Mulan ماہ gave me idea to start such countdown. In the beginning, there were about 70 quotes I thought are important , I included about 40 in countdown and here are the best ten.

Out of these ten:
2 are from Shang
2 are from Fa Zhou
2 are from Emperor
and 4 are from Mulan

10. "Ping, آپ are the craziest man I've ever met, and for that I owe آپ my life. From now on, آپ have my trust" سے طرف کی Shang


This is کہا after Mulan saved Shang and finally earned honor and respect for her deeds.However she gets wounded and we pretty soon forget about it. People don't find it very memorable and meaningful, and that's why it's only 10th



9. "Maybe I just wanted to look in the mirror and see someone worthwhile... But I was wrong... I see nothing!" سے طرف کی Mulan

A great appreciation for all people in this spot who participated in my poll. Using the link (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) assessment, I attempted to classify Belle in one of sixteen different personality types.

BELLE IS...

1. Introverted link

Introverts often:
- Have quiet energy
- Listen مزید than talk
- Think quietly inside their heads
- Think, then act
- Feel comfortable being alone
- Prefer to work "behind-the-scenes"
- Have good powers of concentration
- Prefer to focus on one thing at a time
- Are self-contained and reserved



In the song "Belle," she preferred reading alone to mingling with the villagers. She was مزید of a homey girl than a society girl. She was quite reserved, in a sense, that the villagers did not understand her.

This مضمون is based on my opinions. I apologize if I hurt anyone’s feelings. That’s the last thing I want to do.

9. Tiana
A lot of people who have Tiana this low think that she’s too serious. Well, I don’t know about that but I think her world is too concentrated on the restaurant and that she’s too narrow-minded. Sure, I like her as a human a little but when she turns into a frog… I don’t know. Her personality changes too much in my opinion. Plus, in my opinion she’s the only princess who is only a little dreamy. I think the rest of them are really dreamy in their own ways and I prefer the dreamy princesses. I’m neutral about Tiana. I don’t dislike her but I don’t like her either.





8. Belle
Belle got to have some ambition! What’s up with the “I want مزید than this provincial life” and she doesn’t do anything to get the “more than provincial life”? I know that she has to take care of her father but she got married in the end یا something like that. So, she’s not going to take care of her father anyways. I do love the way she talks...

Since Beauty and the Beast is my پسندیدہ Disney film, I wanted to write about a few of my پسندیدہ scenes.


#8:Shes Being Difficult!


I love this scene because suddenly this monsterous Beast is being childish. Also this is the first banter آپ see between the Beast and Belle, آپ also get to see how desperatly the قلعہ staff is trying to get him to be polite and get the girl to fall in love with him.

#7: The Library:


When the Beast presents Belle the لائبریری and shares his desperate attempts to win her دل to cogsworth and lumiere آپ just want to go "Awwww" the look on his face after he sees how happy he amde her سے طرف کی giving her that gift was almost as if he was دیا a gift, this is probably the part where آپ notice that his selfishness has almost dissappeared.


#6:Beast Learns To Read


I have always thought this scene was sweet, its in the "Human Again" sequence which originally wasnt in the movie. This scene is easily forgotten but I find it absolutly amazing how well آپ can see the change in the beast....

A/N#1: Listened to the song "Beauty and the Beast" and saw a تبصرہ about a piece of the song inspiring someone, so I picked one that always seemed to give me goosebumps...I dont know why this part of the song does...I just think after seeing Belle/Beast from beginning to end...its enchanting to see how nervous about love both of them are.

Disclaimer: Dont Own the Lyrics, یا the characters...or Beauty and the Beast...thei Disney's.


Song Lyrics: "...Both A Little Scared, Neither One Prepared..."


[Belle POV]


Tonight was the night, the night I finally figured out what was truly going on with me and the beast.
The Beast.
It felt weird calling him that, after so much time we had become friends, and I dont think thats a name suitable for anyone.
He truly is a mystery, hes surprisingly human for a creature, and those eyes...they seemed so out of place.
In the village I had come from people always sneered at me, would smile and greet me yet when I turned away they would begin to whisper and smirk and tease.

Fairy G: How can it implode outta nowhere?

I'm not just a princess you know. That's only half of who I am!
Alright, this مضمون is going to be really bad and thrown together, but I need to write it while I still have the words. I get really tired of people hating on any princess, but this is the complaint that gets on my nerves the most: جیسمین, یاسمین has everything and still wants more! Doesn't she get how lucky she is?

I'm hoping this مضمون will get Jasmine's motives across to you, because I'm really going through the same thing. I have a nice house, my parents both have jobs and are happily married, I got a scholarship to the high school of my dreams, I go to Disney World once a year, and my brother is amazing. But there's always this deep longing for something more.

جیسمین, یاسمین knows her life is great- she's not stupid. She realizes that she lives in a paradise. But, as it often turns out, the one thing she really needs is the one thing she can't have- freedom. جیسمین, یاسمین is a free spirit who just wants to go out and do something, anything, on her own. She wants to break away from her dull routine of wake up, get pampered, go to sleep. Remind آپ of another princess who wanted more? Unlike that princess, however, it is literally impossible...

I’ve been mulling this over for quite a while; what’s the point of writing this مضمون other than to voice my opinion about well… my پسندیدہ princesses? Maybe why I’m still typing is due to the fact that almost every active member has his یا her own article. Considering I recently upgraded to a dedicated fan, I’ve decided that yes; I absolutely do need a پسندیدہ Disney princess list. However, note that this فہرست is subject to change, hence the term "temporary". So, over the course of two months, I was busy watching Disney princess فلمیں for what seemed like a hundred times until I think I created a solid list...for now.

9. Pocahontas


No, there’s nothing particularly wrong with Pocahontas; I just find her extremely dull. I watched her movie recently, just for the joy of… well… watching Disney فلمیں (Is there really another reason for watch Disney movies?). I really wanted to love Pocahontas, I really did. But after she saw the English men arrive in Virginia, she turned all tree-hugger, trying to preach this stranger about earth. She sees a man that obviously is completely different than her people, and...

(evil stepmother from enchanted) yeah, there's NOTHING unkind or evil about this woman AT ALL. /sarcasm
aurthors note: I'm back with a new article! I just realized that on my last two مضامین that it has 2 fans! I didn't پرستار it myself, so whoever two fanned it, Thank آپ very much! I'm glad آپ like my writing. =)

Anyway, we're going to start with comparing Ariel to ECHANTED. I have watched it and it is VERY funny. The main character is Giselle, who is kind of all the Disney girls mixed. She has animal friends, cleans after people, and so on. Her prince is Edward, but instead HES the one with the evil stepmother. Apparently she's very kind to everyone. And It's a musical as آپ can imagine.
So, Giselle and Airel kind of have that way when they sing, آپ know, when they gently اقدام their arms around in the air to make themselves look delicate... Also, there's that red hair.
There's some debate that Giselle's hair is blone, but I tend to think it's سٹرابیری, اسٹرابیری blonde.
Also, they both can prove a point when they're breaking into song. Like, when Ariel's singing, "Watch and you'll see, someday I'll be.. Part of your world."

I wanted to do something creative for Mulan month, and here it is. I though of making countdown for this, but I realized I would be very unhappy if the results don't turn out the way I want. If you, however, are interested in countdown, leave a comment.

I had really had time deciding which princess would be Mulan's پسندیدہ so thank آپ princeslullaby billion times for helping me sort things up. I tried to think the way Mulan would, and to rank the princesses based on her values, I hope I did it good, if not, well, I'm sorry.


8.Aurora
Aurora and Mulan are almost exact opposites. Aurora is just so girly, gentle, romantic, naive and rather passive, and Mulan is ... not. I don't think Mulan would particularly appreciate any of few Aurora's choices and deeds and she would probably find her boring.


7.Snow White
I really think Mulan would like Snow White, she would love her personality, but Snow White's action would probably seems silly to her. She certainly wouldn't understand Snow White's fearful personality and her satisfaction with ordinary domestic life...

A/N- Ok So I actually had some excellent feedback on my other "Beauty and
the Beast" oneshot so I think I am going to make them a series of oneshots.
I was requested to do something that went into the beast's past and I'm
gonna try a little something like the last one...you know with a flashback and
with a comparison, except I think im gonna be doing this one in the Prince/King's
point of view.


Disclaimer: I do not own the characters in this story...or the story of Beauty and
the Beast...Disney does.



[Before The Transformation]

"Adam! Adam! Adam!" I heard my name being called repeatdly from outside
my room. Rolling my eyes I soon recognized it as my little sister Annabelle's
voice.
"What?" I asked annoyed as I opened the huge door. I didn't have time for this
childish nonsense, I was eight she was five, five سال olds and eight سال olds
just dont work well together.

A/N: So I was watching Beauty and the Beast this morning and I read a story
about the prince before he was transformed and it gave me this idea. I
thought it would be interesting to see the individual changes from who the
prince was before to who he was after Belle broke the spell. I also thought that
it would be interesting to see it through the eyes of someone besides Belle
یا the prince.

Also I use the name Adam for the prince.

Disclaimer: I do not own Belle یا the Beast/Prince/Adam یا any of the other
characters...lets just say I do not own Beauty and the Beast. Also I dont remember
clearly how everything went in "The Enchanted Christmas" so im just making it up.


[Before the tranformation]




The قلعہ was warm and decorated beautifully for the occasion, despite the
cold weather outside. Misletoe hung all over and the banquet میز, جدول was filled
with delicious looking food, prepared with my help of course.

Kids: Where did آپ get it?

Rodney: Just turn it on already please!

*Hella turns on the flashlight. When on, they all see a dark and terrible version of the revo road of whatever(With ghosts, goblins, and other creepy stuff that are lerking in there and probably gonna make Rodney pee again).

ارے everyone! This is my سیکنڈ مضمون and part two of comparing our Disney girls!

hmm... where should I start...?
Well, it's rumoured that Cinderella was actually made after a native american legend called "Rough face girl"
except the legend goes that there was a young girl with two selfish sisters, who got all the nice beads, moccasins, and dresses. While all she got was hand-me-downs. And she didn't have cinder on her face, she actually had ASHES/burns. So she met a guy who fell in love with her and told her to wash her face in a special lake, which made her face beautiful. They lived happily ever after. sweet huh?

Our اگلے comparision is "EVER AFTER" starring Drew Barrymore! This is a little bit similar to the Disney Cinderella, but there's no magic. And Cinderella's name isn't really Cinderella. It's Daniel. (I dunno where they got that from.) Also, the prince has an Actual NAME! his name is Henry, hmm... suits him. آپ know my movie rule. XP
