my president, ya’ll.
The Nerd-in-Chief, ladies and gentlemen.
This scene is probably what some could call a red herring for Hans’ personality. However, I can’t help but think he was honest here. But what got me thinking is, what was on his mind when he smiled after saying “Just you?”
Was it something like, “Bingo, I got a better chance to get close to the Arendelle princesses” or was it something least malicious?
After reading some posts defending Hans for his actions, I really think he isn’t all that bad. I mean, every bad guy has a reason anyway. And that reason is what I want to know.
I think that he really truly did fancy her at first, and wanted to be with her, but during Love Is a Open Door he reaches out for her a couple of times and Anna misses, doesn’t notice Hans reaching out for her. I think then he realized that Anna just loved the idea of being with a handsome prince, and just fancied Hans, because he’s a royal prince, and that it wasn’t really love; and since Anna left to find Elsa, he was really beginning to enjoy being in power and being everybody’s leader, he loved the idea of being King, more than Anna, so the plotting to murder them to get the throne was set back in motion. During the kiss scene with Anna, you can notice that he stops, his eyes zoom around like he’s thinking, and then goes in for the betrayal.
I think he came to usurp the throne, but really couldn’t choose between loving Anna or the throne, in the end, he choose the throne. When he’s about to go out to seek out to find Anna again, he’s stopped by the higher-ups and one of them mentions ” But you are all that we have left ” and he stops, and begins thinking quietly to himself. I believe that he was switching back to choosing Anna again, but then that guy made him switch back to trying to usurp the throne. So Hans says ” fuck it, she never really loved me, I really love the idea of being their king and besting my brothers more, let’s go out and take over that throne “.
Hans is a A+ actor so can understand why a fan would think that Hans is just acting sweet and innocent here, but there was no body around when he’s in the water and flips the boat. There was nobody to act off, pretend or lie too, just him and his horse. Hans had a chance to do a evil grin here or smirk, but he didn’t, just a happy, goofy smile and blushing underneath his cheeks.
Also Jennifer lee has mentioned that Hans is a tragic character, because he grew up without love, so I believe that he was in love, but he A) didn’t understand it or know what it was, so pushed it aside or B) felt betrayed and used by Anna, and he felt like he was being treated like a fool, and didn’t take it well at all.
Hans may of had cruel intentions at first, but Anna was the wrong girl for him, Anna was right for Kristoff from the beginning. But Hans is ill in the head, so I don’t think that anything would of worked out well; if he had a better childhood, he would of dealt with Anna so much better and would of stayed with Anna, and would of helped her find Kristoff, despite his hurt, but because he grew up with no love, his head and heart is fucked up beyond extreme and did some crazy, sick things.
Hans’ heart is frozen cold, by childhood trauma, and it only just melted a little when he bumped into Anna by the dock, but froze up again when things weren’t working out.
and everything suddenly makes sense
au where gatsby and nick get married and gatsby’s vows are all addressed to old sport and when the preacher asks if he takes nicholas carraway to be his lawfully wedded husband, gatsby just stands there in confusion for a few minutes and eventually confesses that he has no idea who nicholas carraway is he’s here to marry old sport
That tonks could have done anything with her body literally anything and instead she chose pink and short and spiky hair and disguises for top secret missions to defeat DARK WIZARDS and cheer up affected children during wartime by entertaining them with her gifts during the worst time of their lives and not to mention support her boyfriend when their government wouldn’t let him support her because of his condition and think YES GOOD THIS IS THE KIND OF WOMAN I ASPIRE TO BE
i noticed this too. the worst part is that in both scenes, they’re having to argue with their captain to do their job. A+ characterization of kirk right there ugh
How nice that you all are ignoring context. Wonderful.
Uhura is asking this after they’ve been shot at multiple times by Klingons who are clearly bent on killing the lot of them, and have just been cornered by them. Kirk is afraid that they are going to kill her on sight without letting her have the chance to do her job. Before this point, he had every intention of letting her do her job (“Lieutenant, how’s your Klingon?” “It’s rusty, but it’s good.” “Good, you’re coming too.”). He does not want to risk her life on the off-chance that the Klingons will listen. He is doing his duty as captain and attempting to keep everyone safe, as well as being his usual stubborn protective self (which he does for EVERYONE he cares about). He is being very Jim Kirk in this scene.
You are also ignoring the context of the conversation itself.
Uhura: They are ordering us to land. Captain, they’re gonna wanna know why we’re here. And they’re gonna torture us, question us, and they’re gonna kill us.
Kirk: So we come out shooting.
[Uhura rises from her seat and goes over to Kirk]
Uhura: We are outnumbered, outgunned. There’s no way we survive if we attack first. You brought me here because I speak Klingon, then let me speak Klingon.
You are deliberately manipulating us into believing that Kirk is shutting down Uhura’s agency and that she is pleading with him to regain it. This is not true. Jim does not want to risk the life of a valued crew-member and one of his dear friends on the off-chance that the Klingons won’t kill them on sight. This has nothing to do with sexism, and cutting out the context of this scene is a shitty and manipulative thing to do.
As for Carol’s scene, she is not actually addressing Kirk directly, but Bones. This is the scene where Bones’ arm got stuck in that torpedo. Kirk is not even physically there.
Kirk: Dr. Marcus, can you disarm it?Carol: I’m trying. I’m trying.
Bones: Jim, get her the hell out of here!
Carol: No. If you beam me back, he dies! Just let me do it!
[Carol quickly works to deactivate the torpedo]
Kirk is in no way trying to keep Carol from doing her job. She is attempting to save Bones’ life, and Kirk is very willing to let her do it. He is trusting that she will be able to deactivate the rocket. He is placing his best friend’s life into her hands: if that’s not agency, I don’t know what is.
So shut the hell up and stop being deliberately manipulative and trying to force victimization and a lack of agency on two very talented, very capable women who were not belittled or looked down on, and by no means did either occur at the hands of Jim Kirk.
