#it was an arranged marriage right #so what if they met for the first time and fergus was a total blushing stammering human disaster #and elinor was so terrified by the whole thing she just clung to her courtesies and hoped for the best #and that night at dinner elinor’s escort (who was kind of old and sleepy obvs) fell asleep and faceplanted into the soup #and they just looked at each other and burst out laughing #and all was well
WHY IS THIS SO ADORBS
but btw i love how brave unlike many disney movies addresses the arranged marriage problem like YEA this was a part of history and it’s ok
when Fergus saw Elinor for the first time, she was nothing like he expected. He expected some timid small lass that would never love him. Instead he fell in love with her the first time he laid eyes on her. Strong, confident and trying to do what was right for her people and the kingdoms.
Elinor on the other hand, was terrified but of course “remembered to smile” and kept her calm and guard up. But couldn’t help but slowly fall in love with the huge Scot and near their wedding day- all doubts of an arranged wedding melted away.
They wouldn’t be in full love from the first moment, but Fergus grew on her, and they fell even deeper in love with each other
