Calm Before the (Snow) Storm
Once upon a time, the wielders of magic looked across the expanse of time and space between their kingdoms. They were Yen Sid, Merlin, the Genies, the Fairies, and the other great magicians, wizards, and witches. By combing their powers, they set about establishing several smaller realms between the kingdoms. They were a collection of castles and lands that would allow people from different kingdoms to gather and explore together. One castle in particular became known as the retreat for the princesses, a place where could get away from the stress of ruling their kingdoms. For many years, the princesses would come to relax and enjoy their fellowship, and all was well. Until one day…
Elsa looked around the courtyard of the castle to examine her handiwork. The entire grounds were covered with a soft blanket of snow, and icicles of varying lengths stretched down from the roof. “Oh, sis! You’ve outdone yourself this year!” Elsa smiled and gave a nod of approval before turning to face Anna. “Thank you, Anna. I hope that the other princesses appreciate it.”
“Of course they will! Why wouldn’t they? Everything’s so calm and peaceful and….”
“OOT OF THE WAY!!”
Anna jumped behind Elsa as a sled sped through the open gates of the castle into the courtyard. It kicked up a cloud of snow that hurtled toward the sisters until Elsa used her magic to disperse it. Sitting on the sled looking sheepish, were Merida and Rapunzel. Merida still clutched the edge of the sled, while Rapunzel sat in the back with her hair wrapped around her like a scarf. “Um, good morning, Princess Elsa, Princess Anna,” said Rapunzel nervously. “Merida was just showing me how to ride this thing, and it kind of got away from us. Didn’t it, Merida?” Merida shot Rapunzel a look, who jerked her head towards the sisters. Merida looked back and cleared her throat. “Oh, yes. That’s what happened. I’ll need to talk to Tor back home. He just doesn’t build sleds like he used to.” Elsa looked at Anna and sighed. “Were you about to say quiet?” Anna peeked behind Elsa and carefully walked around her to the sled. “Oh they’re just having some fun, Elsa. No harm done. Besides, you can’t blame them for enjoying this weather you…”
Anna was interrupted by a snowball hitting her in the face. She sputtered as the sound of stifled giggles came from one of the archways. Elsa raised an eyebrow and walked toward the archway to see Ariel, Jasmine, and Belle in winter gear. She frowned at the three princesses as they stood with their hands behind their backs, desperately trying to keep from laughing. “Would any of you happen to have seen who threw that snowball?” Elsa asked. The three princesses all shook their heads. “Snowball? Someone threw a snowball?” Belle asked wide eyed. “I wouldn’t even know what a snowball looked like,” said Jasmine. “Me neither,” snickered Ariel. Elsa rolled her eyes and turned to walk away. Sharing a final grin, Ariel, Jasmine, and Belle all pulled out the snowballs they had hid behind their backs and threw them at Elsa. Elsa spun around and used her magic to send the projectiles flying over her head. Unfortunately, they proceeded to land directly on Anna, Merida, and Rapunzel. Merida wiped the snow from her hair and grinned at the snowballers. “So, you want to play, do ya?” She scooped two handfuls of snow, with Rapunzel and Anna following suit. Ariel, Jasmine, and Belle scattered laughing into the courtyard for cover. Within an instant, fozen projectiles were being hurled back and forth across the lawn. “Ladies! Ladies, please!” Elsa shouted, but to no avail.
Across the courtyard, Snow White and Cinderella walked through an archway. “Oh! What’s going on hereMMPH!” said Snow White before receiving a mouthful of snow. “Ha! Sorry, Snow White! Or is it Snow Ball?” laughed Ariel. Cinderella pulled Snow White behind a tree just in time to avoid another volley of snow. “I should of known you three would be starting up again!” Cinderella said as she started rolling snow. “You’ve been waiting for this ever since Belle told you about snow!”
Elsa stood in the center of the playful warfare until finally she raised her hands to the sky. “ENOUGH!” Instantly every snowball that was still in the air stopped in mid-flight, suspended by Elsa’s magic. The other princesses dropped the snow they had in their hands as Elsa let the snowballs drop to the ground. She looked around the courtyard disapprovingly. “I can’t believe this. I give you all the gift of winter and you instantly turn into a mob of lunatics!” Anna took a step forward. “Elsa, calm down. They didn’t mean any harm. There’s nothing wrong with a little snowball fight. We had them when we were younger, remember?”
“But this is not a little snowball fight,” Elsa argued. “If you all kept this up you’d probably wreck the whole castle!” Merida crossed her arms and pouted. “But we were winnin’!” Jasmine scoffed. “Oh please. We would have won!” Elsa silenced any further debate with a glare. Then she took a deep breath to calm herself. “Very well. You want to have a snowball fight? Fine. Then we’re going to try to keep it under control. Meet in the main dining room tomorrow morning. I’ll tell you how we’re going to handle this.” Elsa stalked out of the courtyard, leaving the other princesses to look on in confusion.
The next morning, the six princesses made their way into the dining room, only to find they weren’t alone. The hall was filled with familiar faces: Aurora, Pocahontas, Esmeralda, Megara, Mulan, Jane, Kida, Tiana, Moana, and Raya. All were dressed for the winter weather and talking in hushed, excited tones. “Do you have any idea what your sister is planning?” Ariel asked Anna. “Don’t look at me,” Anna shrugged. “She didn’t even come up to our room. She said she had ‘things’ to take care of.” The door to the dining room swung open and Elsa walked in. She looked over the excited and curious faces before her. “Thank you all for coming. I understand that you all are very excited about the snowfall I’ve created for the castle.” Some of the women shouted agreement and thanks. “But I also know that some of you might decide to get carried away and turn our castle grounds into a snowball battlefield.” A couple of knowing glances towards Ariel, Jasmine, and Belle and some snickers followed. “Now I don’t want to interfere in your fun, but I believe we can do it a way that isn’t going to turn into a free for all. So, I’m happy to announce that starting today, we will be having a snowball fight tournament!”
The dining room started buzzing with excitement, and Elsa raised a hand to quiet it. “Yes, I know. You choose who you want to have your teams, and then you will be free to have your snowball fights, two teams at a time. If you get hit by five snowballs, you’re out. If all three of your team members are out, you lose the fight. Lose two fights, and your team is out. Seem fair?” The princesses nodded in agreement. “Oh. And one more thing,” Elsa said, smiling sweetly. “Since you all are so ready to go, I figured I might invite some more people to join us.” She strode over to the floor length mirror and laid her hand on the frame. “Visitatores intrant!” The image in the mirror blurred and then six more figures entered. The princesses looked on in shock as Elsa introduced them. “Ladies, allow me to introduce you to your competition: the Swan Princess Odette! From Russia, Anastasia! From Transylvania, Mavis Dracula! From Clan Hofferson, Astrid! From Far, Far Away, Princess Fiona! And from the city of El Dorado, Chel!”
Chel waved at the dumbstruck princesses and grinned. “Hey, ladies. Hope you don’t mind if we win this little game of yours?” Megara stepped forward toward Chel. “What makes you think we’re gonna let you?” Snow White got in between the two and looked to Elsa. “Elsa, are you sure you know what your doing? I mean, we’ve never had people not part of the kingdoms come to the castle before.”
“Well, excuse us,” Astrid said sarcastically. “Elsa invited us to play a game with you lot. And that’s what we’re going to do. If you don’t like it, then you better be ready for a fight.” Merida turned to Rapunzel. “Oh, I like her!” Snow White looked around the dining room at the princesses. “Do you all still want to go through with this?” The answer echoed throughout the dining room.
Snow White sighed and turned to Elsa. “Very well. But you better make sure that everyone is following your rules.” Elsa nodded and smiled. “Of course I will. Now, who wants to go first?”
