Book lover from the City of Brotherly Love

He’s very talented. He’s charming.He mirrors everyone. And actually, the original story had a lot to do with mirrors, and in many iterations of the story we’d talk about mirrors and we’d bring them up and so I held on a little to that.

And he’s goofy with [Anna], he’s a little more bold and aggressive with the Duke, ‘cause the Duke’s a jerk so he’s a jerk back, and then, with Elsa he’s a hero. 

What Hans is is a mirror, charming, but hollower, sociopathic. [Anna’s] so lonely, that it’s like she’s falling in love with her reflection in the pond. (x)

It’s important to note that in the original story the main “antagonist” (or really the thing that fucked shit up) was an evil mirror that froze people’s hearts

The strangler is a rare poison, which makes the person unable to breathe. The poison is made from plants that are only found on islands in the Jade Sea. The leaves of the plant are picked and aged, then soaked in a wash of limes, sugar water and rare spices from the Summer Islands. The leaves are then discarded, but the liquid is kept and thickened with ash and allowed to crystallize. It turns a deep purple color.
