Why I don't like Jack x Elsa :|

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

Itachi Uchiha would've been better as a crossover pairing, but it's WAY too far-fetched since anime and western cartoons don't collaborate, plus Itachi's already dead...twice...poor guy crying

At first, I thought it was cute, but now I think its sorta disgusting. I'm glad I'm not the only one who dislikes this pairing. If Elsa is going to have a boyfriend/husband, I want it to be worth her...I don't mean Jack Frost isn't worthy of women, I'm just saying that they don't really look good together once you look closely

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who doesn't get the whole JackxElsa  cross-pairing. 

I have yet to see Rise of the Guardians (I'll get around to it eventually) so the only reasons I could see why people would pair these two were superficial. (Similar powers and appearances.) Pairing people SOLELY based on their appearances seems kind of shallow in my opinion.  No, I don't care if they "look cute together" or not.   And if it's based more on their similar powers, why don't we see either of them paired off with OTHER icy-powered characters more often? 
It's always just 'JackxElsa'...

Note: I have nothing against either character. I actually really like Elsa...and I have no real opinion on Jack yet. 


Also in a way...I kind of prefer Elsa to be single and independent.   Who knows? Maybe romantic relationships aren't really for her. Maybe she has no personal interest in that sort of thing...

Thank you! x.x You would not believe... One of my best friends LOVES Jelsa. She is obsessed with it.  An actual conversation(We'll call her K, don't wanna give out her name):
Me: "Hey, K, do you need help with number 6? You've been on it for a while."
K: "AMBER LOOK IT'S JELSA! AAAAAH!"
Then the teacher came over and took her phone up.
So I'm kinda tired of Jelsa.

Oh my god AGREED! Finally someone doesn't like Jelsa! Why does he get paired with Disney princesses?! Rapunzel and Elsa.. Ugh. They're from COMPLETELY different movies by COMPLETELY different companies. I'm sick of looking for Frozen pictures and art and seeing Jelsa!

Thank you q-q Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I couldn't agree more. Those two together... It's just wrong. I never understood why so many people have to pair up everything, shamelessly.
Jack is a wonderful character and he is, in my opinion, not in desperate need of a girlfriend, so just like he did not need Rapunzel (WHY? Isn't there Flinn?), he does not need Elsa.
And if Elsa needed a king... well, he should be human, shouldn't he? I mean little princes and princesses, a heir to the throne, a future for a kingdom and not a sob story cause she grows old and he doesn't.

(Sorry for the poor english ._.)
