day 6: the prince you wish loved you
A plethora of Disney fans believe that Flynn Rider is the hottest Disney prince there is. While that may be true, I don’t think of him in that sense. Here’s this rugged, thieving, bad boy who’s put up this front his entire life. He’s completely selfish, in that he’d rather live alone with just piles of money to keep him company. In fact, he only helped Rapunzel leave the tower so that he could get his satchel back. But somewhere in between their near-death experience and confessions at the campfire, Flynn’s hard exterior started to vanish. He let his guard down because of Rapunzel’s genuine care and innocence. Eugene spent years of his life with a fake reputation and it only took Rapunzel a day to change it all. They built this undeniable trust and discovered their attraction towards each other. That’s why he didn’t run. He could have taken the crown and gotten his money. Instead, he realized that he didn’t want to live a lie anymore. There was something that he felt for Rapunzel that was bigger than himself and because of this, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. And even when he was trapped in his cell and later when he stabbed by Gothel, the only thing that mattered to him was Rapunzel. He could have let Rapunzel heal him, but in the end, he’d rather give up his life to see Rapunzel be free. Eugene became selfless.
Yes, Flynn/Eugene may be the best looking Disney Prince, but he’s so much more.
Plus, Zachary Levi is just the most adorable person in the world. Okay?
