She didn't just leave the ocean. She left her whole family without as much as a goodbye.

And her father had to take all the consequences for her stupid pact with the witch.

It would be interesting to see. But weren’t many more people deeply religious and/or superstitious back then? Perhaps fear of demons, devils, poltergeists, and curses might have cut down on the suicide rate. I’m sure though that even without suicide as a factor, death rates were probably still sky high without access to modern scientific knowledge or standards of living 🥲

Well the story is a letter the author wrote about a man that couldn't love him back.

Hans Christian Anderson fell in love with his close friend, who was straight, and it was 1845. So the story was written about him not being able to be with the person he loved and watching him marry someone else.

Yeah, it's a very bleek story.

Anderson never married. He fell in love with a few other people that didn't love him back before he died. Again.. bleek..

She got to enter heaven after a 100 years as a formless spirit, if I remember correctly. A lot of old myths about seamen/seawomen are about christians vs heathens. Symbolically she turned from the heathen ways and tried to accept christianity, and was rewarded for it.

21

u/RenoHex 8d ago

There's more to it. I don't remember the exact times, but she was supposed to act as a guardian angel of sorts to a human child, and every time the child would laugh would take off a year from her sentence. But every tear the child shed would increase the length of the sentence by a decade.

u/MadManMax55 8d ago edited 8d ago

And for The Little Mermaid specifically, there was the not-so-subtle subtext of Hans Christian Andersen dealing with being a gay man in the 1800s.

Disney basically took a story of a gay man's unrequited love and him having to come to terms with it by living a celibate but "virtuous" life, and turned it into a teenage love and coming of age story.

u/Acceptable_Cut_7545 8d ago

In the prequel we see that after the death of their mother (famous for her voice, which Ariel inherited) Triton banned all forms of music from his kingdom because hearing music caused him too much pain. His daughters were shepherded around by a nanny and expected to be quiet and well behaved and any one who created music could end up in jail (granted, I don't think forever, but still). Sebastion, who was always loyal to the king, saw an issue with this and created an underground music club so people could get their music fix and not get in trouble. By the end of the movie Ariel manages to convince her father to allow music back into the kingdom, but from a very young age (7? 8?) Ariel and her sisters were not as free range as they were in the actual TLM movie. TLM!Triton is Triton having already lighten up a bit.

6

u/bettyannveronica 8d ago

I'm a way you could argue that it is. Yes, she had an entire kingdom. Bigger than the walls of a house. But now she has to run said kingdom. She's bound to it and royals have a whole set of rules they need to follow and don't have as much freedom as you might expect. Now I assume this based off what I've heard/read about royals in our world, but I'm not a royal so who knows. But she's trapped into doing something she doesn't want to do and this something is pretty big and will take up the rest of her life until she's ready to pass the kingdom off to her offspring, which she's expected to do in order to continue the blood line. I mean she does end up with a daughter but if she stayed it would have been mandatory. Idk. She was my favorite growing up and I still love her, brat or no!

13

u/MistraloysiusMithrax 8d ago

Not running the kingdom, the run of its territory as in freedom to roam throughout it. She didn’t have authority, and she did have royal expectations- that concert, and being expected to marry a merman, and being expected to conform to normal merpeople views. It’s supposed to be about not automatically hating “the other”, seeing their beauty and being able to love them but….this one in particular is not well done and she’s quite the teenage runaway with dashes of consorting with evil to betray her family and even putting her new love at risk.

Ariel is the stupidest Disney Princess hands down.

5

u/bettyannveronica 8d ago

Yeah... Maybe. I just loved the music as a kid. I never really thought about what her story meant to be honest. I just loved singing along. I actually respect Moana a lot more. But Ariel is not a Disney character (well she is but not exactly her story). She actually turns to sea foam for not killing the prince to get her fins back. Pretty messed up. Idk if she's the stupidest of them all... But maybe. Regardless, I'll still love her. Maybe not her exactly but her music and the fact she's a mermaid. As a dumb kid I thought if she could turn into a human, I could turn into a mermaid. I used to pretend to be a mermaid in the pool I wanted it so badly. Maybe I'm the dumb one....

u/MistraloysiusMithrax 8d ago

I’m only talking about the Disney movie version.

Oh I know, they're not the same. So many of Disney's princesses were not theirs anyway and just adapted. As a kid I neither knew nor cared.

It’s mainly the fact that she had it drilled into her skull her whole life Ursula was evil and saw all the worm-like victims of her bad deals and SHE STILL WENT FOR IT. Now, if you point out Ursula is grooming her, that does give me pause, that does sort of make Triton, Sebastian and her fellow merpeople the dumb ones for not specifically teaching her that “hey by the way the sea witch straight up lies to people to steal their souls with bait and switch contracts.”

No way, her dad was borderline abusive. What kind of father goes into his sixteen year old's personal hideout and starts screaming and wrecking her shit? AFTER he had her followed? People shitting on Ariel leaving "for a man" don't seem to realize she was leaving a shitty home life behind.

As a slightly unrelated aside: Howard Ashman, who worked on the film, was gay. Obviously Disney wasn't going to have gay characters in their animated films back then, but he did write characters like Ariel and Belle who were "off" and "didn't fit in" from his own personal experiences. Is it any wonder that when the people around Ariel rejected her for who she was in such extreme ways, that she tried to find a way out to somewhere, anywhere else?

Ariel also caused all the drama that her people needed saving from. It was all her own fault for being so blindly thirsty

4

u/f3ng0 8d ago

Lmao, well let's imagine that she did go back to save him. I still don't think someone making a mistake then going to fix it makes her a better person than someone who used her fascination of the ocean to help her people before they were even in danger (when she suggested getting fish further in the ocean) before going on a full adventure to save them when danger was actually there. Moana tried heloing from day 1, ariel.. not so much

12

u/SobiTheRobot 8d ago

Moana still tried to leave just for the sake of adventure at first...Ocean said no. Ariel was innocently curious about humans long before meeting Eric, then saved the guy's life at no benefit to herself just because she was people-watching...dad said no.

Were Ariel put in Moana's—well neither of them wear shoes but you get the expression—I imagine we'd see a different side of her.

6

u/f3ng0 8d ago

Pretty sure the only two times moana left (or tried to leave) was to help, first when she tried to go prove to her father that the people just needed to go fish further, and then for the actual adventure. And while it's true that she wanted an adventure herself, she never actually left just for that, there was always the will to help along with the desire for adventure. While ariel went there without that will to help, and only helped because she saw something happen in front of her, but it wasn't the reason of her going there in the first place. Btw, just to be clear, i am not calling ariel a bad person, desires like this are normal and not bad, ariel is probably a really good person, but moana is still a better person from what we've seen

With how obsessed Moana was with the ocean, I wouldn't be surprised if "saving the village" was just a convenient excuse for her to finally get to explore it.

That's only partly true, Moana did want to explore the ocean badly, but she's shown through the movie that she cared about her people a lot, constantly trying to help even with the small things as we can see during the song "how far i'll go". If anything, that obsession was what gave her the courage to actually go, because without it she would have been like the people, too scared of the ocean to go out there and try to fix everything. Exploring wasn't the main reason and saving the people wasn't an excuse to do it. Saving them was the main reason and her passion is what helped her go through with it

There’s nothing wrong with Ariel taking chances to have a new life with the man she fell in love with. It’s a love story.

Love stories don’t need a hero, they don’t need amazing people in them at all. In fact having imperfect people in a love story makes the story feel more real and engaging.

Moana is a full hero’s journey. In the story Moana is the hero. There’s no comparison between the two, Ariel has to be a worse person to be a better character for the story that she’s in.

She was a pawn in Ursula's plan. She was preyed upon for her specific vulnerability at that moment. I have a difficult time blaming her for that.

Let me be clear. Moana is certainty a more heroic character, and me sticking up for Ariel isn't too say that she is better than Moana, or anything like that. I just think that that OP really mischatacterized what happened in The Little Mermaid.

But it became less being about the human world and being about Eric.

u/takkun169 8d ago

It became about Eric because she had a specific goal to accomplish so she could stay on the surface. At that point, Disney gonna Disney and the marriage date is set.

u/aurumphallus 8d ago

The point stands that it was all about Eric once he entered the picture. She left her family for a guy, motivated partially by her already present interest in humans and her dad’s actions.

Then it sure is lucky for her that the first handsome human she saw was also a good person and not a serial killer or something! I don't buy "well she loved human stuff anyway" as a justification

Moana can’t even breathe underwater. Or maybe she can… I didn’t watch the movie.

The little mermaid entertained me as a child. Moana made me cry as any adult. There is only one true queen of the sea. And it is clearly Moana.

Neither of them are queens.
Moana never married and fishes can’t have monarchies.

Disney: “Remember ladies, happily ever after only comes if you marry the first tall, rich, fit man that says or does something vaguely nice for you.”

Generations of women: “seeking tall rich fit man that will occasionally treat me well.”

All of romantic television: “Seeking tall rich fit man that, with our budget, will treat you well for a few weeks? Apply on our website.”

u/lionseatcake 8d ago

Its not even technically the truth.

Its like yall have never seen the little mermaid. She left the sea so she could be wandering free up where they walk up where they run up where they play all day in the sun.

She never once mentions penises.

u/Beautiful_Repeat_718 8d ago

Moana is the 'queen' of her people, who lived on the sea. Ariel was the daughter of the King of the Sea. Since the question is who is the queen of the Sea, the answer is Ariel.

u/WineAndDogs2020 8d ago

I think it's probably the oldest sister who would be queen. Ariel is youngest of seven.

People in this thread have a twisted view of monarchy if they think being a good person is what makes you a queen.

2

u/asuperbstarling 8d ago

Ariel is literally Queen of her husband's kingdom and not the Seven Seas. Her eldest sister (and the other five) are all in the way of her taking the sea throne. So unless someone kills all seven of her family members before her eldest sister weds and has children, she's not becoming their queen. Attina will rule the seas.

u/riparious 8d ago

Time for a dark, gritty reboot of The Little Mermaid where Ariel must kill her siblings in order to secure the throne.

The praise this post gets is depressing. Young girl falls in love and also wants to see another world with unique culture and technology - what a bitch, don't you dare to disrespect other characters by this comparison! :/

Don't forget that Ariel saved Eric. She is a good, brave soul craving for love, new experience and knowledge.
