Why I don't like Jack x Elsa :|

Dolphy's Journal

If you have a question then please read this because it may already have the answer you`re looking for. ^^…


People will probably hate me for this but I gotta voice my annoyance about the unbelievable amount of Jack Frost x Elsa fanart out there. It's like a plague that can't be avoided, even if you don't even look for it. :|

I've never understood why people do crossover-pairings. It's so...random. Pairing characters from a movie up with each other because you think there's something going on between them, well, alright. Creating an own character that fits into the world of the movie, alright. But taking two characters from completely different movies and claiming them to be a couple? Eh, wtf? Yes, I draw Jack, Dolphy and Jim together as well, but those are really just fun images and I don't ship Jack with anyone ( mostly because I see him as the perfection of a big brother and sorta Peter Pan-like ). However I know that the shippers are taking those couples pretty damn serious. There are even fangirls who comment on Dreamworks' and Disney's Facebook pages asking them to make movies with several of those characters. Seriously, I've seen a comment begging Dreamworks to make a movie with Jack, Hiccup, Rapunzel and Merida. It's like asking Microsoft and Apple to produce a computer together. :|

Why do I hate Jelsa so much now you ask? They look so cute together, don't they?Well, that already is one of those issues. People pair them up mostly because they both have winter powers and look similar to each other. Which is so horribly superficial it's making me cringe. It's like pairing up Tarzan and Princess Mononoke because "Omgawd, they both live with and can talk to animals, they have so much in common!". How shallow have we become? Jack is still a child at heart who loves to play with children, prank people and have fun. Elsa is a queen, very mature and responsible for her age and has to rule a whole kingdom and follow her duties and deal with politics, etc. She'd rather be like a mother-like person than a girlfriend for Jack.

Anyway, my 3 other main problems with this pairing :

1. They look like freaking siblings. Seriously, Elsa looks like a sparkly princess-version of Jack. Looking like brother and sister doesn't exactly qualify for being a perfect couple...does it?

2. This is just my personal humble opinion so don't attack me with a pitchfork if you're an Elsa fan but let's imagine she wasn't an official movie character but the creation of a fan. Whenever I see images of her I have the following scenario in mind :

"Jack totally needs a girlfriend! I gotta create one for him! So, where do I start....oh yes, she has to have winter powers as well! Maybe even more powerful and impressive than Jack's! White hair and insanely huge blue eyes fit best to give her that wintery look, and oh, oh, she needs a sparkly beautiful dress and shoes with stiletto heels to look even more breathtaking! Of course those shoes might be pretty impractical when she walks on ice and snow all day, but hey, who cares? Sooo, what else. Oh yes, she must have a dramatic past and be angsty but still lovable because she does it all for the well-being of others and needs someone to relate to and save her!"

What do I wanna say with this? Well, I'm 100% sure if Elsa was the creation of a fellow fan she would have been the prime example of a Mary Sue and people would have faceplamed at the sheer uncreativity of developing a girlfriend like this for Jack. Like, totally. I don't say she's a Mary Sue in the movie, solely talking about the Jelsa aspect here.

3. Jack is immortal. Elsa isn't. It's all fine and dandy until she ages and suddenly turns into a grandma while Jack still looks like 18. Yikes.

Of course everyone is allowed to draw and ship what they want and I'm the last person who would waltz towards an artist and flame them for it. If you ship them, fine. I just felt the need to blurt my opinion out because the pairing is shoved into my face wherever I look and every time it's making me facepalm because of the previously mentioned reasons.

Now excuse me, I gotta hide from the angry Jelsa-fans. :P

I am in complete agreement with this.

When I first saw Jelsa, I just let it slide and just be a thing that fans did that I would have no part of. But I now see it everywhere and it gets very annoying when all I want to do is find a good crossover fanfic to read.

Yes! Thank you so much for this.

I agree 101%, but for me the worst thing of all is when I search something like images and fanfics there are 10 jelsa for each 1non jelsa! [insert angry meme here]

You took the words right out of my mouth my friend.

I -SO- agree with you!
Seriously, I thought I'm the only one thinkin' this way!!!
Ok, I'm not against crossover ships (mostly anyways)
But shippin' them 'cause they're so alike with their ice powers?
I'd actually rather ship fire and ice instead!
they ARE freakin' sibling-like ><''

I completely agree. Even if Jack Frost did make it into the sequel, which I really hope won't happen, Disney would never shove Anna into a corner so a character who wasn't even theirs (Jack Frost) could have the spotlight with Elsa. Jack Frost would NEVER be more important than Anna in Elsa's life nor in the "Frozen" franchise, and Disney would make sure of that. Disney is also perfectly capable of creating a Prince for Elsa all on their own, if they wanted to. I doubt Disney would want to pay a rival studio to borrow an already existing character who has a story all his own that has nothing to do with being a Prince in his past.

Besides, "Frozen" is about the story of Anna and Elsa, and a sequel is NOT likely going to be about Elsa finding her "special someone", whether it be Jack Frost or some other Prince. Honestly, Disney knows who Elsa will go best with, and if they never give her a love interest because they can't fit it into the story they envisioned, then that is perfectly fine.

Another thing is, why would DreamWorks want to allow Disney to borrow one of their characters for a Disney sequel so that Disney can look good?

I agree this ship is really annoying and I see them as having a mother and son bond. Like when I search Jack Frost there is like 5 pictures of Jack Frost and the rest is jelsa. Elsa will age and she is mature. Jack is childish and real not age. And really I don't care if jelsa fans hate but who cares... Well that's all I have to say

I have no problem with this ship personally. But the thing that irks me the most is that these people are so hellbent on seeing their little fan pairing come to life that they are actually sending petitions to Disney and Dreamworks to do a crossover film of them. WTF? THESE ARE RIVAL STUDIOS!! They would never work with one another under any circumstances. Hell I still remember at Comic Con a few years ago where there was this one stupid jackunzel fangirl that asked one of the guys working at Dreamworks if they will do a crossover with Rotg and Tangled and (big surprise) pair Jack up with Rapunzel. The guy said a simple, but stern "No" and went right on with the panel.

Its not happening people. Get over it.
