Thanks for all the awesome ideas yesterday, folks! You've got my blog-writing juices a-flowing. But before I delve into some of your suggestions, there's something I would like to share with you, because apparently I like public displays of humiliation.
Everyone has a YouTube guilty pleasure. Watching music videos, movies, vlogs, etc. Most are harmless. Most are understandable, and shared by millions.
My YouTube guilty pleasure is something far more -- oh, how shall I put this -- giggly. Giggly as in it makes you feel like the five-year-old princess-y (or prince-y, for you menfolk) child you once were.
Okay, I'll just say it quick: I'm addicted to watching Disney crossovers.
Wait -- what the heck is that?
Exactly. Few people have heard of it, few people admit to watching it. But alas, my writer-friends, I am one of the few who lets hours flick by while watching 4-minute-long videos of two Disney movies shmooshed into new and exciting romance stories. Jim and Ariel, Eric and Pocahontas, Belle and Phoebus, Chel and Kuzco.
Trust me, they're better than they sound. Well, some of them. And, in true Sara-like fashion, I shall post a few of my faves.
For those loyal to the original movies, these may suck. Try to watch with an open-story mind.
Story for this one: Belle is engaged to Gaston but in love with Phoebus. Her father, Frollo, wants to keep her and Phoebus apart. Chaos ensues.
Maybe it's just because the song is AWESOME. But the editing is fantastic too; xNightshadex makes the best crossovers I've found so far.
This one is a bit simpler: just a spin on Chel and Kuzco.
Jim Hawkins and Ariel are a popular crossover couple. Mainly because they're just so darn cute together. Again, a father-keeping-true-lovers-apart story.
Good luck not YouTubing "Disney crossover couples" for the next two hours.
