Okay, so I have come across a lot of criticism against Merida that she is childish, rude, reckless, selfish and what not. But since she's my 2nd Favorit princess, i'd like to put up a case in her favor for people to consider and see her in better light. I have tried to dissect the movie scenes, probed into possible perspective on various minor details that may have been overlooked.


Why she isn't sophisticated as others:
She no doubt loves both her mother and father, but Merida takes off a part of feisty, loud and unapologetically honest side from her father. She loves to fight with him, laughing...

I know she had a very bad personality at the beginning being disobedient and disrespectful to her mother but she turns nicer each Tag after her mother turned into a bear. She starts loving her more. So I'd say she's adventurous and turns nice and kind at the end. I Liebe how she apologized for her bad choices and became good. She's fearless and playful. I also Liebe how she saved her mother from her father and others. I find her intelligent because she knew what to do with her mother when she turned into a bear. She can make pretty bad choices and be childish but she knows how to change herself.

She made a bad choice but she just wanted to prove herself right and she did. I think she is a great role model who teaches us to solve our own problems. She has Liebe for her family deep down.
4. Fergus
He's funny and I liked him a lot at the beginning. I don't like the way he was Schauspielen when the lords were introducing their sons. I also liked how he supports Merida. My favourite part is when he was laughing with Merida, while she was making fun of the lords' sons. Overall, he's a great character.


3. The triplets
They're very funny and mischievous. I like their reactions of taking the Essen from Maudi. I find them a bit intelligent. Overall, I Liebe their reactions.


2. Elinor
I like that she tries to teach Merida lessons. She loves her daughter although she refused to...

The turquoise dress
It's okay. I Liebe the glitters around it. I don't like the colour (I like the white parts though). It doesn't fit Merida much.


The dark green dress
I think it fits Merida a lot. It's very pretty and comfortable for Merida's skills. It looks gorgeous especially in the sunlight.


Her brown dress
This is the one she wore when she was young. It's very pretty and it fits her. She looks really cute when she is wearing it.
6. Learn me right
It has a great meaning and message. The Musik is also nice, I don't enjoy the Singen voice much.


5. Song of Mor'du
I like it but I feel that it's a mess. I Liebe the lyrics but I don't like the way the men shouts.


4. Touch the sky
I Liebe the Musik and the scene. The Singen voice was also amazing. It is meaningful and I can relate to it.


3. Noble maiden fair (reprise)
It's the same as Noble maiden fair, only the scene is different. I think Noble maiden fair's scene is a bit better. But I Liebe the scene for Noble maiden fair (reprise) too.


2. Into...

*Sigh*I Lost all my progress from THEDisneyFreak, so I'm just going to re-post this Artikel
Here is the problem with most people on Merida: she's selfish and wanted to change her mom. I can agree with that yes, but she changed and genuinely apologized in the end. Now I'm not going to bring up Ariel, they are very different but comparing them makes me look desperate. You're free to disagree, we all have opinions.
Though yes. I'm aware an Artikel like this has just been written but the Autor is fine with it, I've been Schreiben this for the past two days.

I used to hate the idea of Merida - Legende der Highlands and Merida...

Why I Liebe Merida

As far as some of Du know, I'm a HUGE Merida Fan and supporter, and when she is insulted oder even not shown any gradual Liebe compared to the other Princesses I fight and stand up for her. Recently she's been gaining the Liebe she deserved, I don't know where it started but as soon as that happened I felt enlightened with delight. I secretly {not a secret anymore} feel that I had something to do with the Liebe she's been gaining, but of corse, that's an over exaggeration but I'll just pretend it happened like that. When Merida is called ugly oder plain my face turns red but an...

So the way I first watched this was actually through my little brother. He had seen it in the theaters and asked for it on dvd for Christmas. He did end up getting it for Weihnachten and so we all watched it. I instantly loved it and watched it about 3 Mehr times. I especially like it because of the amazing soundtrack! My Favorit songs in order are:

Into the Open Air
Touch the Sky
Noble Maiden Fair
Learn Me Right

It brought me to my Favorit singer, Julie Fowlis,who sings Touch the Sky and Into the Open air in the movie.
I absolutely Liebe Merida - Legende der Highlands and saw it six times in theaters last year. From the first time I saw it, it was clear to me that the main point of it was the relationship between Merida and Elinor. After seeing it Mehr times after that, I couldn't ignore the subtle hints and meanings I noticed in many of their scenes together. That's why I wrote an analytical that describes many of those scenes in terms of their relationship. If Du noticed many of the same things I did in the film, then I'm sure that Du would like to read my essay. Here is the link to it on FanFiction: link

Although not nearly as long as the first, I also wrote a Sekunde essay in how fate and destiny plays an important part in the film, too: link
Noble Maiden Fair (A Mhaighdean Bhan Uasal) is a lullaby sung Von Queen Elinor and Young Princess Meerida during a memory of them both and when Merida is tearfully begging her mother back to human form.

Gaelic Lyrics:
A naoidhean bhig, cluinn mo ghuth
Mise ri d' thaobh, O mhaighdean bhan

Ar righinn oig, fas as faic

Do thir, dileas Fein

A ghrian a's a ghealaich, stuir sinn

Gu uair ar cliu 's ar gloire

Naoidhean bhig, ar righinn go

Mhaighdean uashaill bhan

English Translation:
Little baby, hear my voice
I'm beside you, O maiden fair

Our young Lady, grow and see

Your land, your own faithful land

Sun and moon, guide us

To the Stunde of our glory and honour

Little baby, our young Lady

Noble maiden fair
Song of Mor'du is a villain song from Merida - Legende der Highlands about Mor'du sung Von King Fergus and chorus to entertain the lords.

I've hunted for him high 'n' low; I've looked him in the eye.
I dream about the perfect way, tae make this devil die.
Come taste ma blade ya manky bär for gobblin' up ma leg!
I'll hunt ye then I'll skin ye, hang your noggin on a peg!
Mor'du, Mor'du
Mor'du, Mor'du!
You're ancient as the highlands and as unforgivin' too.
Mor'du, Mor'du
Mor'du, Mor'du!
Now the time has come for all of us tae slaughter you!

He's bigger than a Cuillin, killin' armies with his paws.
Mor'du is never happy till the...

Though I may speak some tongue of old oder even spit out some holy word I have no strength with which to speak when Du sit me down and see I’m weak

We will run and scream Du will dance with me We’ll fulfill our dreams, and we’ll be free

We will run and scream Du will dance with me We’ll fulfill our dreams, and we’ll be free We will be who we are And they’ll heal our scars Sadness will be far away

So I have done wrong to put me right my judgement burned in the black of night Then I give less than I take It is my fault, my own mistake

We will run and scream Du will dance with me We’ll fulfill our dreams, and we’ll be free We will be who we are And they’ll heal our scars Sadness will be far away

Into the Open Air is a song in Merida - Legende der Highlands performed Von Julie Fowlis. Merida and Elinor as a bär are catching fisch in a stream and are reconciling with each other.

This Liebe it is a distant star, guiding us Home wherever we are.
This Liebe it is a burning sun, shining a light on the things that we've done.

I tried to speak to Du every day, but each word we spoke the wind blew away.

Could these walls come crumbling down? I want to feel my feet on the ground, And leave behind this prison we share. Step into the open air.

How did we let it come to this? What we've just tasted we somehow still miss.

How will it feel when this Tag is done? And can we keep what we've only begun?

And now these walls come crumbling down, and I can feel my feet on the ground. Can we carry this Liebe that we share?

Into the open air.

Into the open air (into the open air).

Into the open air.

This Liebe it is a burning sun.

Touch the Sky is the first song in Merida - Legende der Highlands performed Von Julie Fowlis when Merida leaves the schloss and rides her horse, Angus, through the forest and shoots arrow.

When cold wind is a' calling, and the sky is clear and bright
Misty mountains sing and beckon, lead me out into the light
I will ride, I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky
I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la

(Instrumental)
Where dark woods hide secrets and mountains are fierce and bold
Deep waters hold reflections of times Lost long ago...

All the characters and the main history are property of Disney Pixar and Brenda Chapman for Schreiben the movie script, it's totally Fan wrote of!

Monday, May 13rd
Dear parchment , I write it because I want to keep the things I think and that happen (like my fantastic adventures) to me now, in my adolescence, so that in the not too distant future, read it and surprised me. For, as my mother says: "When Du grow up, if you're not married, you'll regret it and Du won't think like that now." And as an adult and of legal age I wil be oder married to who will win the archery tournament that will be celebrated...

Brave: Merida's Fate.
Chapter 1 Episode 2: The Drought

    A week has passed since she fixed her bow, and the kingdom is experiencing a drought like never before. The only place that has any water is the lake behind the castle, and yet it Lost five feet of water. Each Tag around a dozen people come to the schloss with heat stroke, and few die. And now it is tearing the kingdom apart.

    A meeting was held in the great hall to discuss the issue, and shortly after a fight broke out amongst people. "Everyone shut it!" Queen Elinor roared. "Quite bursting into...

I have read that young princess Merida will be included in the princess line and upon hearing the news, to say the least, I was thrilled.
Merida is obviously an admirable chatacter-independent, free willed, but also loving and intellegent. But what marks her among the place of the best princesses iis her faults and vulnerability. She says and does things she regrets, she makes mistakes, but deals with the consequences and fixes them. The only other princesses who do likewise are Pochahonts, Mulan, and Tiana. Rapunzel is merely a victim of what she does not know. Belle and Ariel make mistakes...

Brave: Merida's Fate.
Chapter 1 Episode 1: Pilot

    Life for Merida has been set back to normal after the three clans left. No Mehr worrying about marriage, no new responsibilities, and no Mehr of that dreaded bear, Mor'du. The only thing that has changed is her mother now truly understands her. Now she has a free life again, and the only person who runs it is her.

    Although, for now she has been grounded and ordered to clean up whatever her mother, Queen Elinor broke when she was turned into a bear. The damage stretched halfway around the castle, and...

Ok, I just watched Brave, and I want to write a review. And please don't say I got stuff wrong, because the power went out in the middle of the movie! We got to watch the rest though. First off, it was really funny. Seriously, I was ROTFL! But, it was really scary! I like that kind of movie! Some of the Scotish language (kerfuffles, etc.) was hard to understand. I think the movie would be too violent for young kids. But it told a good story. Du better be good at making predictions, though, because this movie is better when Du guess.

I'm going to come and say straight up I Liebe Merida. She's earned a spot in my oben, nach oben three heroine's of all time, and her movie is one of my favourite Pixar films to date. So, moving on..

Appearance -
A lot of people think Merida is ugly, but I disagree. Sure, she's different from what we're used to seeing, but different doesn't mean ugly. Her hair is beautiful, it's a true red-head's red. It's a gorgeous copper hue that is full of life and volume. It really represents her character well. Her eyes are beautiful, such a lovely colour and shape in my opinion. I Liebe her smile, it's full of passion...
