I wonder if Elsa’s parents were hoping to have her learn from Rumple?
Rumple’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies
hehe I think we were all hoping that. The movie version gave us simple glimpses of the girls parents and a lot of people scream that they were parenting wrong. OUAT is giving me hope that maybe, just maybe, they were going to try and find someone to help their daughter learn how to control her powers like they should have done from the beginning
Unfortunately, there’s the reality that we have to deal with. they may have had to wait for Elsa to mature enough to run the kingdom in their absence before they went off to find someone to help teach her. They couldn’t have just up and left the kingdom, it would have meant leaving their positions open to someone else who may harm their daughters to get to the thrown, OR maybe they had never heard of someone who could help their daughter until she had reached that particular age.
These thoughts often lead me to Rapunzel’s parents. They couldn’t leave their station after losing their daughter either. It, like Elsa’s parents situation, could have brought the kingdom to ruin. Unfortunately, in order to be a good king or queen one must treat their country as though it were their family, the people are the king and queens children and it would be irresponsible to leave the kingdom with no one trustworthy to rule in their stead.
Anyway, I’m sorry for rambling but I’ve had alot of feelings about this situation and I’m so happy that OUAT is giving me some hope for situation (Elsa’s parents leaving to find someone to help her) to be come canon. Thank you so much Adam, Eddy, and the writer of OUAT. ^_^
