, and thought it was only right to do one for the amazing Pocahontas. Pocahontas has gone through a roller coaster on my list, most recently being 10th on my list, but I've always loved her. When I first came to the club, Pocahontas was my segundo favorite, and she's finally joined back into the topo, início 5, now coming in at 4 (3 if you don't count Elsa). Well anyway let's get starting with me talking about why I amor Pocahontas!
Pocahontas is great in many ways, but I think there was one instance that really struck me as remarkable, and solidified my amor for her. That scene is the one when Nakoma tells Pocahontas that she sent Kocoum after Pocahontas, which ultimately got Kocoum killed, and John Smith sentenced to exile. Pocahontas could've back-lashed, but instead she says, "This is all my fault!" I find that extremely admirable, and something that is often over-looked when people describe her. It's a unique trait to Pocahontas, since most princesses would've either back-lashed, or cried, Pocahontas admitted that she was the one that got everyone into this, and wasn't in the least mad at Nakoma. I found that astounding, and oh so refreshing. Also, even after this mess, Pocahontas just doesn't mope around. She takes responsibility, and realizes that she's the only one that can stop this. She's very proactive, even if a bit slow to get there.
Nakoma in general just brings out the best in Pocahontas. I absolutely amor the opening scene we see of Pocahontas, where she's standing on the rock, having one of her infamous dramatic poses, and dives down into the water. It shows how adventurous and fun she is. Then, we get to see her spit water at Nakoma, which I loved seeing. I amor how her relationship with Nakoma is light-hearted and fun, yet they can rely and trust each other, and they know what's best for one another. I amor how there are so many traits to Pocahontas. She doesn't fit into the cookie cutter "fun" princess, but neither does she fit into the "serious" type princess. She has characteristics of both, which I find really fun and interesting to watch. Pocahontas handles herself with such elegance and grace, but at the same time jumps off cliffs, how awesome is that? Also, although she has knowledge that really is foreign for her age, she still makes mistakes, and isn't superwoman.
Another aspect that I amor about Pocahontas is how I relate to her. I've come to see mais and mais that we're similar in many ways, and it's a bit surprising, as I used to think how could I relate to some Earth-Goddess that runs around in the forest and is awesomely amazing, but I do see some similarities now. We're both extremely indecisive for one, and I amor how Pocahontas has such a tough time picking which way is her path. The compass scene where it points her to the right direction is such a powerful scene in my opinion, since it symbolizes how Pocahontas finally knows her path. I amor how Pocahontas isn't scared to take the path less followed, and how she welcomes change. That's something that I wish I could do, since often I feel I'm stuck in a rot and can't get out. Pocahontas lacks some common sense, since she doesn't even try to explain to her father the situation, but I find that's a quality that makes her mais realistic, and human. Sometimes something is starring me straight in the face, but I wait till it's almost too late to do anything, since I'm scared that something might go wrong, and Pocahontas is clearly the same. I'm glad they gave this trait to Pocahontas, because many fictional characters in general just seem to figure everything out way too quickly and unrealistically.
All in all, Pocahontas is amazing. She's a fun character that really is mais than the eye can see. She's very responsible, realistic, relateable, elegant, and more. I amor how she takes ownership of her action, isn't perfect, and how she is both fun, while having a serious side that gets her points across. Pocahontas is a wonderful princess, and she definitely deserves her long awaited spot in my topo, início 5! Thanks for reading, and expect another artigo like this either about Mulan, Jasmine, or Rapunzel soon! :)
