A great depiction of Elsa in a more pleasant moment.  She's probably in her ice palace and is practicing with her magic where she feels it is not a danger.

Part of Elsa's problem is that she's going to be Queen, and so has a certain image that has been developed by other rules over centuries and found to be effective.  She also takes her duties seriously, including that of protecting her kingdom and subjects.  This conflicts with her inability to control her powers, combined with poor coping strategies that nobody questioned because the King came up with them.  I think we confuse "good" and "bad", which have to do with motivation, with "effective" and "convenient", which has to do with what we see outwardly.  I think Elsa is unambiguously good, but clearly ineffective in projecting that goodness.

That's a good way to describe her, I definitely agree that Elsa is unmistakably seen as good by the audience.
It's a habit to feel compelled to identify a character by the good/bad dichotomy that is typical with Disney and western media in general. I only used it since Frozen was Disney's return to musicals and fairytale kingdoms and princesses, so my comparisons were intentionally limited to that type of Disney movie. Elsa was going to be a villain and I'm glad they changed her. We're left with two good sisters who are distinct from one another. Elsa could have been another Anna, or Belle, Rapunzel, Cinderella, etc. princesses who don't really make mistakes that (unintentionally) hurt others and make them look bad to the other characters.
So nah, I don't mean to say Elsa is Good with Some Bad, not at all. She is good, she's just not played up that same way a lot of other princesses are. I should edit my OP so that I clarify that better, it is a bit confusing how I described it.

Thanks for your input, and I'm glad you like it! :)

hnnnnghnnn

There. Spaz over.
I really, really felt a connection with Elsa. I know what it's like to feel like you can't fully share yourself with anyone out of fear of rejection; I also know what it's like to ostracize myself from others just because I feel so removed from the general populace. But I can't help asking myself what Elsa would have been like if she didn't have an Anna to fall back on....probably a lot like myself, I'm assuming.
Point being, it was such a disappointment to have such a sloppy, unfinished ending to what could have been a really thought-provolking and worthy piece of cinnema. It won an academy award, which annoys me because it could have been so much better than it was. They could have really blown through a lot of Disney barriers and they just...didn't.
Uuugh. I could keep going, but you'd be listening to me whine all day. I just haven't found anyone who felt anything toward Elsa other than you to really vent to. Yes, the story was lackluster, but as a character, Elsa was sort of the saving grace of the entire thing.

Oh gosh thank youu! u//////u

A lot of people relate to Elsa which is one main reason why she's great. Often times people like that are kind of given up on, so it's nice to see anna try to help her since that sends a message i guess. Elsa came to her senses after her sister's sacrifice... which in reality it would suck if it needs to get to that point, but it's a movie so, *dramatic*. Elsa's reaction didn't seem unrealistic though? A lot of people thought the ending was the best part so id like to hear your thoughts on it, you should note me!  "Elsa was sort of the saving grace of the entire thing" <<<< yeah i truly thought that too.
