Reprise (Chapter 34) [Frozen/Tangled/TLM]

CHAPTER 34: The Will to Thrive
Under the shroud of night, a black shape floated across the fjord. One figure rowed with a single pole. The other sat cross-legged.
"Ariel, I love you. But this seems like a stupid plan," Rapunzel whispered.
"I know. But it's the best I came up with. But I think it'll work," she said.
Ariel oared toward the embankment of sharp rocks. They could have moved faster with the trident, but she didn't want to risk losing it in capture. The last thing Ansel needed was more power on his side.
So far it looked like the resistance's reconnaissance had been correct. Guards were looking for fleets, not small rafts. As a result, no one sounded the alarm.
The flat wood bumped against the shore, right in front of Elsa's cell. New rocks and mortar lay in the point of ingress.
They stepped gingerly onto the shoals. "Still got the stuff?" Ariel asked.
Rapunzel pulled two vials out of her pocket. One was purple, the other a dark butterm

CHAPTER 33: The Resistance
"Watch out for the fire. Don't touch," Olaf said as he picked up a torch.
The tunnel's upward incline told them they were heading north into Arendelle's mountain range. Thanks to the reflective ice on the walls, the single torch kept the tunnel well lit.
As they walked, Olaf explained how he came to be guarding the door. "So then they told me to go stand guard at the door. I guess they've got it all cleaned up now. But the noodles might be stuck there."
No one could get a word in edgewise as Olaf rattled through whatever came to mind.
"I still think we need a catchy name. I even thought of a few, like the 'ice guys'. Or the 'cold warriors'. How do you like that one?"
"But who, Olaf? Who is leading the resistance?" Rapunzel asked.
"We're here."
The endless tunnel tapered into a small alcove. Only Olaf could fit without ducking. "Can you push this up? My arms have trouble."
The three of them pushed on a sheet of wood in th

CHAPTER 32: Follow the Flakes
The dockworker stood where they would have lowered the gangplank, blocking their path.
"Welcome to Arendelle. May I see your permit please?"
"Permit?" Flynn asked.
The dockworker tapped his foot. He wore a domed helmet with a nose guard. As far as Rapunzel could see, all the dockworkers had been replaced by royal sentries. They paced up and down the shoreline with sharp spears.
"All ships need to have writ of consent from one of the allied kingdoms before being granted dock."
Rapunzel whispered to Ariel. "That's new."
"We can't allow in a potential risk, if your kingdom is not part of Arendelle's axis of compatriots. These are tumultuous times. What flag do you sail under?"
"Look, it's just me, my wife, and..." Flynn pondered Ariel's role, "my sister. We're a trade ship."
"Trade ship?" The guard looked behind him. "What are all those guns and cannons for?"
"That's... that's what we're trading. Do you need any? Can nev

CHAPTER 31: The Right Friends
There was no noise. The bangs and booms had ceased. The ground no longer vibrated.
"Unh, come on," Ariel said. She jabbed her trident at a point near the dome's ceiling, chipping at the ice. A blast of lightning in these tight quarters could be disastrous.
Rapunzel sat against the wall. The passing time, the muffled silence, didn't bother her. The image of Elsa did. She hugged her knees as ice chips spattered her cheeks.
Ariel felt all three tines embed, instead just of the center point. "I think we're almost there."
Three more digs and a beam of light appeared. Ariel scraped against the aperture. Rapunzel pulled away the loose rocks.
It was daylight all right. They could see trees and hear birds.
"How did we get outside?" Ariel asked. "Did we teleport?"
Rapunzel knew the answer, but said nothing while Ariel hacked into the loose hole. One final blow excavated enough space to push out their thin frames.

CHAPTER 30: What Girls Are Afraid Of
The girls marched him back to the boat. His hands were roped in Rapunzel's hair and tied in one of Elsa's sailor knots. Ariel pointed her trident at his back, the center point never more than an inch away from his flesh. She told him if she even felt a hint of magic, she'd blast him back to reality. Even if he could teleport or fly away, Rapunzel would snap him right back.
Once on the boat, Ariel stuck the trident in the water and propelled them back to the castle. Elsa and Rapunzel stood on opposite sides, monitoring their captive.
"Can't you untie me now? I'm not going to attack you," Lowther said. "You've got me captured. And my hands are starting to hurt."
"Tough," Elsa said.
"What if I lose circulation? My hands might get gangrene and need to be amputated. My blood circulation's not good-"
"You know what? All I need to do is think about any part of your 'castle' and that washes away any sympathy," Elsa sai

CHAPTER 29: A Nice Place to Visit
"It says he died about two hundred years ago," Rapunzel whispered.
"The one guy. The ONE guy who could have helped us." Elsa began pacing. "We've been searching all over for him and he's been dead for two centuries already. He was our last chance and we finally found where he is."
With a grunt, she kicked the gravestone. "I am tired of this stupid goose chase. I'm so far away from my family, my home." She kicked again and again. "My country's at war. And I can't do anything about it!"
The last kick cracked the stone. It toppled like a playing card. Elsa shirked back. "Oops."
"What's this?" Rapunzel asked. "This writing down below."
The bottom of the stone contained faded glyphs, obscured by the thick wildgrass until now. "These... these look like the same glyphs on Arcius's island. Remember? At the altar-thing?" She rubbed sand away from the letters. "Maybe it's a clue. If I-"

CHAPTER 28: Getaway
Ariel sat alone in the covered carriage, scrutinizing every inch of the thick, grimy canvas map through scrunched brows. The legend, the author's marks, the scale--there was no reason that the forest area would hide from everyone. The coachman, the guards, the peasantry passing by--no one she talked to could point out the forest.
It didn't even matter how she asked--"Can you point out the forest?", "What's the fastest way to get to the East plains?", "Point out all the paths you see."they always left out that splotch.
She had asked a well-traveled caravan "Okay, you've gone down this road before, right? You've passed this section of road, right? So what is here? What do you see?" The tinkers looked to each other, scratched their heads, and said they didn't remember. Then they showed her their most recent map. The path was not there. As if the forest had swallowed it.
What was with this map that she could see something that no o

CHAPTER 27: Fly on the Wall
Eric held out his torch, guiding them through the lightless tunnels. Ariel had never been in this part of the castle. Not because it was forbidden, but because it led to the dungeons. Or so she thought. But Eric assured her those were in the other wing. The cobwebs and roots seeping through the brick and mud walls did little to convince her. Not even Sir Grimsby was accompanying. Eric said he needed "plausible deniability" if anyone was captured.
They reached a heavy wooden door with a double lock. Two guards stood on either side, holding partisans. A key dangled from each of their belts. "Halt!" one said.
Eric reached into his shirt and pulled out a small medallion tied around his neck. One of the guards pressed a gem scope into his eye. He examined the medallion while the other held his partisan ready to spear Eric at moment's notice.
"Clean," the examining guard said. The other relaxed his spear. Together they insert

CHAPTER 26: Return from the Sea
A deep whistle. Then, behind Elsa and Rapunzel, an explosion of water. They shrieked and paddled closer to Ariel. Huge waves buffeted them about.
"How could this have happened?" Rapunzel shouted over the cannon fire. "How long have we been gone?"
"Who knows-" Elsa had another coughing fit. She waved away the embers that floated like fireflies.  
"We've got to get aboard one of these ships," Rapunzel said.
"No!" Elsa shouted. "We can't. It's too dangerous."
"It's too dangerous down here," Rapunzel said.
"As soon as one ship sees their kingdom's ruler, they'll fire everything they've got. We'll become a target."
"I can go. There's no Corona ships," Rapunzel said.
"You're my cousin," Elsa responded. "You're just as good."
"Let's change back," Ariel said. "We'll swim under and get-"
"Look out!" Elsa pointed behind Ariel.

CHAPTER 25: Message in a Bottle
"A... for Arendelle?" Ariel asked. "Was this... your parents' ship? The ship that went down?"
Elsa nodded, tears beading.
Rapunzel and Ariel didn't know what to do, but wait for their friend to take action. She could do nothing for the moment, suspended by the awe of this discovery.  
Elsa swam to the top deck. The sea had coated everything with lime green crust. Rotten wooden planks lay curled and bent in awkward positions. She floated over the forecastle, then dove into the quarter deck. Ariel and Rapunzel followed.
Elsa grasped the edges of the square hole and pulled herself in. It was dark and cloudy, with tiny particles of light filtering in from the broken windows and holes. Splintered timbers lay everywhere. Barrels remained stacked, but their tops had burst open from the pressure. Whatever contents they held had long since disintegrated.
"The royal quarters," Rapunzel whispered. She could imagine the di

CHAPTER 24: Vocal Romantic Stimulation
The Coral Corral, as Gil's grandfather had named it, had lots in common with human ranches, like a barn. It was globular like a giant snail shell and carved from sea rock, but it was a barn. Instead of a fence, ropes tied the seahorses' prehensile tales to stakes in the seabed. Giant seahorses had the broad chest and musculature of fine stallions.  
They poked their snouts into patches of kelp, looking for brine shrimp and plankton. One of them, colored porcelain with a pineapple mane and amber eyes, crept right up to her. A regular horse might be looking for an apple or sugar cube, but this one was content to observe. It regarded her for a moment, then sneezed.
Elsa shirked back, startled, then laughed at herself.
"That's Whitecap. She's getting over a cold," Gil said.
Bubbles floated out of the seahorse's snout.
"They're beautiful," Elsa said.

CHAPTER 23: A Touch of Evil
"I wonder if we should have brought armed guards?" Rapunzel asked for the third time since they started towards the lava vent.
"They wouldn't do any good," Ariel replied. "Trust me."
Their world had shifted from radiant blue with bubbly, electric colors to a noiseless crimson skyscape. Stalagmites and smoky vents stood out from the crumbled black rock and ash. No music, no fish, no signs of life.
"So he was locked away in a volcano? Then why is he still there?" Elsa asked.
Ariel shrugged. "He doesn't want anything, except to make others miserable. That's the only reason he ever wanted to rule Atlantica."
"How did you get him out?" Elsa asked.
"Why did you get him out?" Rapunzel asked.
"The same way he ever got anything--deceiving people who are young and idealistic." Ariel answered. "That's what's most evil about him--you never know that it's happening to you. He never actually lies. He persuades you into thinkin

CHAPTER 22: Enchantment Under the Sea
Elsa met Rapunzel in the hallway. "You look gorgeous," she said.
Rapunzel had oysters clipped to her tail, as she had seen some others do, and put a sangria flower in her hair. "Thanks. You too."
Elsa wore a sash around her waist with a set of sapphire beads hanging in ringlets from the center.
"Can you believe that dressing room? All the cosmetics and frills and ornaments? There were colors I didn't even know existed. And so many things to put in your hair," Rapunzel said.
Ariel swam up behind them. "All ready?"
Compared to her, Elsa and Rapunzel felt underdressed. She had traded her ordinary top for one with star-like glitter. A string of pearls wound around her tail down to the fluke. In her hair lay a tiara of honey gold accentuated with mint emeralds.
"All ready," Elsa said.
Ariel clasped them on the back and led them to the grand hall. Melodious sounds of the band beckoned them in. The mermaids looked da

"Okay, I think I got it this time," Rapunzel said. "Andrina: blond, purple tail. Alana: also purple, black hair, loves gardening. Aquata: blue tail, brown hair. She's the oldest."
"I thought Attina was the oldest," Elsa said.
"Well, that's... the way mermaids give birth, it's kinda... complicated. That's part of the reason they're all sharing the queenship," Ariel said.
Rapunzel grunted. "Ooh, you made me lose my place."
"Sorry. If it's any consolation, I can only remember three: Attina, Adella, and Arista," Elsa said.
Ariel giggled. "If you can split them between the two of you, there won't be a problem."
Rapunzel laughed. "Give me a break, can't you? I'm exhausted. I've never swam this much in my life."
"That's because you're still swimming like a human," Ariel laughed. "Keep your arms down."
"We are going to be so fit when we're back to normal," Elsa muttered to Rapunzel.

CHAPTER 20: The Abyss
Elsa opened her eyes. Everything was dark and cold, but there was a feeling of encapsulation, like the pressure of a heavy blanket.
She groaned. "What happened?"
Cautiously, she lifted herself up, pushing against the spongy ground. But when she moved her legs, one didn't respond. Did she lose it in the fall? Was she an amputee? No, because no leg was missing. It had become one powerful leg, covered in ice-blue scales.
Elsa's jaw dropped. She wiggled her hips. The tail moved with it. Her knees had disappeared. Instead, the tail extended from her spine, making it flexible enough to touch her toes to her head. If she'd had toes. Where they should have been was a thin, fleshy swath of gossamer silk.
Next to her, Rapunzel groaned. She lay on her side, blanketed by the mass of hair surrounding her like a cocoon. She rose as if from a slumber. "Elsa? What is-"
She stopped as she made her own realizations about her body. Brushing awa

CHAPTER 19: Dawned on Me
Elsa, Ariel, Rapunzel, and Arcius stared at each other. He looked as if he were waiting for them to make the next move.
Ariel leaned in to the others. "What do we say?" she whispered.
Elsa stepped forward and curtseyed. "I am Queen Elsa of Arendelle. This is Princess Ariel and Princess Rapunzel."
"Yes, I know." He walked up to them and kissed Elsa's hand. Then he embraced Elsa in a hug, to her surprise. He smelled sweet and clean. "I am so glad you made it. I was afraid there were too many obstacles in your path. Or you might choose the wrong direction," he said, after embracing Rapunzel and Ariel in turn.
"So you sent us these letters." Rapunzel pulled out hers.
"I did," Arcius said. "And I'm glad you were able to decipher them. Encryption is a difficult skill to master. It requires almost a mind-to-mind contact. And I apologize for all your hardships in getting here. I needed to make sure you and only you could find me."
