DAY 24: ERIC’S CASTLE

Eric’s castle is well… exactly that, where Eric, Max, Grimsby, Carlotta, Chef Louis, the servants & now Ariel reside, possibly taking place somewhere in Denmark.

DAY 23: ARIEL’S GROTTO

We all have one of these places; a secret spot nobody but you know of, filled with treasures you hold dearest to you.
Ariel’s grotto is no exception. It’s a cave where she keeps all her human stuff, after finding them from sunken ships, the surface, all with Scuttle’s “knowledge” of what they are. Apparently, there’s more than one. There’s one from the TV series (that Ariel had to destroy herself) and the more famous one from the film. Unfortunately, it got destroyed by Ariel’s father… yet it reappeared briefly in the sequel. I kinda thought that the place Sebastian leads everyone in the third film would eventually become the grotto, but I guess not.

DAY 22: ATLANTICA

This week’s gonna be a large toss-up. One half will focus on the locations/settings & then we’ll take a look at hidden stuff. BTW, the locations/settings’ will, 1, will be lineart, not fully-colored 
(because backgrounds aren’t my strongest point), & 2, their descriptions won’t really say much ‘cause… it’s just a drawing of the set, that’s it. Nothing really major.

To start with the backgrounds, here we have
the majestic land of Atlantica; the kingdom of King Triton, his daughters and all merfolk. Interestingly enough, it didn’t really get its name until the sequel, but does anybody find it kind of strange why they didn’t call it Atlantis? Because it’s pretty much EXACTLY the same. Maybe it was copyright something or other, maybe Disney didn’t want confusion with the Lost Empire, who knows. Anyway, there’s not a better wetter place for you to go than the waterlogged city of Atlantica.

DAY 21: ARIEL

And now we have the youngest for this project’s real debut

The movie’s main character, presenting now to you

It’s finally time to go ahead, express & kiss & tell

Princess Ariel… !

Ah, Ariel. One of the most famous of the Disney Princesses. Like Eric, she’s the first Disney female lead that isn’t bland & only optimistic. She’s a confident 16 year old, wanting strictly to be viewed as not a child. She does have this significant passion for knowing more on human life and goes to extreme lengths to do so. She has a beautiful voice done by the talented Jodi Benson, is very strong & independent, has a carefree teenage persona; everything that
Snow White & Aurora weren’t. (Cinderella however, can get a semi-pass.) & for those about to flag down the “but she didn’t learn her lesson” comments, I always considered the didn’t really have to. Yes, she does get consiquences for her actions & she knows it, but, as many pointed out, Triton was the one who really needed to learn his lesson; accepting humans & letting his daughter be free, because Ariel WAS RIGHT about humans overall.

For other media, it’s been all over the place. In the TV series, she was still likeable, had some fun songs & some interesting starting points (how she met certain characters, how her grotto started, etc.). For Return to the Sea (which we’ll talk about in week 6), her role has basically become Triton from the first film, check for yourself. In Ariel’s Beginning, it shows a little bit more of… well, her beginnings, mostly at how she became the curious one. She’s even had various cameos/appearances in Disney media to come. In fact, Sierra Boggess’ performance in the Broadway show is one of the good factors of the show. Overall, Ariel is a very enjoyable & likeable heroine, & if her being part of our world for 25 years is still revolutionary, then great job, Disney.

DAY 20: DAUGHTERS OF TRITON

Here we have the six daughters of Triton/sisters of Ariel. It’s quite obvious that they got more development as the franchise built. In the first film, the most they do is sing at the opening concert & fill Triton in on how Ariel’s got it bad. As the franchise grew, like the TV series, prequel & various books, they got more character. (My knowledge with them mostly comes from the prequel, not much from the TV series.) Going from left to right, Aquata’s the awkward one, Adella’s the boy-obsessed one, Andrina’s the most tomboy-ish, Attina’s the oldest and is the next in line to the crown, Alana’s obsessed with beauty care & Arista’s the ditsy one. Many think that the order of their age is the order from the song, but it’s actually much different. It really goes Attina, Alana, Adella, Aquata, Arista, Andrina. Sorry this isn’t in that much depth. I know there’s more differences they must’ve had in the TV series, but I didn’t see that much. (I’ll delve more into it when we get to week 6.) Only thing I DO know is that Adella was much more hefty.

See, I did this story on my Muppet Central, when Floyd proposes to Janice at Veterinarians hospital, I was hoping if you can draw canary of it.

Can you give me a link to the story so I can get a better understanding of the story? & what does "canary" mean? I didn't know it had a double meaning outside of the pet bird.
