Queen Elsa by Yamino Queen Elsa by Yamino

Although I get the symbolism of her final outfit, visually I prefer Elsa’s more constrained queenly attire.  It looks like something i could have designed, with all the black and capeyness.

Can we talk about Elsa’s powers, though?  Making snow is just tip of the iceberg. (Spoilers ahead.)

Everyone focuses on Elsa’s freezing powers, which are admittedly awesome and beautiful and terrifying.  She can not only create winter and storm, but send it away, straight back into the sky, clearing an entire city (country???) by completely re-arranging the weather.

But she is capable of something much more incredible- she can create sentient life. And apparently, it comes so easily to her that she even did it accidentally. Not even the Avatar can do that.  She’s literally a goddess.  

She was planning to live forever in a palace made of ice.  What was she going to eat? Does she even need to?  Did she also suddenly realize she can suspend her body in some sort of cryogenic state, like conscious hibernation?  Even if she couldn’t, hunting should be easy for her since literally the entire landscape is at her beck and command and she could create snow servants to prepare the food for her.

Man, her subjects are really, really lucky she didn’t become a villain, because they would have been so screwed.

Heh.  That's not the end of it.  She transformed her coronation dress into her ice dress.

Transformed.

As in, y'know, subatomic rearrangement of the material.

Think about it.  Frozone (?) of the Incredibles needs existing water in the air to freeze.  I know there isn't enough water vapor in the ballroom for the bottom half of a snowman.

Oh, and there's the matter of that giant ice crystal that floated in the air just before she dispersed it:  you have any idea how much it WEIGHED?  Do you have any idea how much damage that thing would cause if she, ah, just, y'know, decided to drop it?

Ohhh, you betcha they were "lucky" she didn't become a villain.  

What bugs me are the people who think that evil!Elsa is so cool and awesome to think about.  Yeesh, try living in it.

The only person who could corrupt her would be Emperor Palpatine. She would sing a twisted perversion of "Let it Go" and line her palace with frozen people she killed.

I think she draws energy from the ice- like how else did she manage to run through a forest and up a mountain without running out of energy?

As to this, Do we really WANT aang to create elemental life? that just sounds like a bad idea

I totally love your description AND your picture, and I must say, the emotions in her face here make me wonder what it would have been like had they chosen to make her a villain.

reformed or not by the end of it all, this would be a pretty badass villain,

...Actually, the more I think about it, the more I like her "queenly attire" too.
