I was wearing my Gryffindor shirt while Christmas shopping and there was this cute guy in a Slytherin hat and we made eye contact and he looked me up and down and said “10 points to Gryffindor” and winked at me and normally I hate being hit on but damn boy that’s the way to do it
HE WAS GOING TO DIE AND HE USED HIS REMAINING STRENGTH TO FREE HER… THIS IS HOW YOU OTP
YOUR OTP COULD NEVER
I often see things online about how Eugene should have waited to be saved, then cut her hair, or that he shouldn’t have cut as much, etc. but I feel like those people are missing the entire point.
Ok first of all, Eugene had waited for Rapunzel to heal him, who knows what would have happened, because Mother Gothel could have come and taken her away immediately. He instead makes the selfless decision with the little bit of strength that he has, to risk his own life in order to save Rapunzel. But more importantly: Eugene was selfish his entire life - mainly because nobody was ever looking out for him. He grew up poor and in an orphanage, so he had to be selfish in order to survive, which is why he turned to thieving. This moment is the moment where everything changes. It is the one time in his life that he puts someone else first.
Second: The symbolism behind the fact that he cuts her hair should tell you everything. All of Rapunzel’s life the only person who she ever knew to love her, didn’t actually love her, but she loved her hair. Gothel was always shown looking, talking to and kissing Rapunzel’s hair, and not really ever Rapunzel herself. Eugene, on the other hand, fell in love with Rapunzel the PERSON. He saw her as another human being, and he saw her heart. That is why he cut her hair - her hair didn’t matter to him because the magic was INSIDE her. He knew that and thus knew that even as he died, she would live a happy life because of how beautiful she is on the inside.
Also if you notice, several times throughout the film he pulls Rapunzel’s hair out of her face, he doesn’t care about the hair, he cares about her! Man, I honestly think Tangled has one of the best Disney love stories! In my opinion it’s up there with Beauty and the Beast, and Pocahontas.
Has picked himself up from where he was pressed against the floor. He waved his hand from side to side like being suddenly knocked over was a usual thing for him. He tried to help Phoebe onto the couch in the main room and ended up suddenly sprawling onto the couch with her and her tail over his legs.
Phoebe’s cheeks brightened with color as they flopped onto the couch “oh goodness…”
Has gently pushed Phoebe’s tail onto the floor, hoping that he wasn’t turning red as a tomato. He quickly pulled out his chalkboard and scribbled on it before presenting it to Phoebe.
'Do you happen to know what the magician who did this to you looked like?' the board read
"tall,roguishly handsome,and he wore a feather in his hair" she explained testing out her control of the tail by curling it towards herself
Has wrote what she said on the far side of his board, making sure to put them far enough away so that they weren’t in danger of being rubbed off. Has showed Phoebe the board to show what he jolted down along with his next question.
'Any distinguishing features about him to let us find him on sight? Or if he was familiar to you in any way?' the board read
"he wore a striped jacket" Phoebe said after a few minutes of thinking
Has added that right under the feather hat and him being handsome. Has noticed out of the corner of his eye that Phoebe was testing out her extended body and gaining some more control over it. He just hoped that it would not try to squeeze him again if Phoebe got angry once more.
Phoebe noticed him watching and smiled awkwardly “sorry,just testing control”
Has looked back at Phoebe and quickly waved his hand from side to side. He wasn’t worried that she would lose control again, just wary. Has tried to think of what kind of person could match these descriptions. He would definitely stand out in a crowd if he was as attractive as Phoebe claimed him to be. And a striped jacket should make him easy to spot. Has mulled over how they could find this man to undo the spell he put on Phoebe.
"are you going to go look for him?" Phoebe asked looking at the notes written on the edge of the board
