Charlotte Vs. Fiona


 

 Fairy Tale Fun Blog Hop

 

Comparing Charlotte Young from Charlotte’s Restrained with Princess Fiona from Shrek!


Charlotte Young Molloy – Originally from a small town in Main, Charlotte moves to New York City. As a result of a major misunderstanding she has a Restraining Order filed against her by Des Bannerman, King of Romantic Comedies. With the help of her friends, and Irishman Liam Molloy, she travels the world in search of the world famous celebrity, hoping to rescue herself!

Initially, Charlotte is a clueless star-struck young woman who is portrayed as the archetypal brassy American tourist. She seems to give off an air of prissiness and self-absorption (a result of being star-struck). Charlotte’s true self emerges as her tale unfolds. She is actually a very confident and fiercely independent woman, who is a match for Des when it comes to self-preservation. Unlike princesses of fairy tales, she is an expert in the corporate world (CFO), financially independent, and wickedly smart. She suffers from very bad manners (just like Des), when she is horribly misunderstood and severely judged. However, she is very loyal and endearing when with those she loves.

If Charlotte’s Restrained, The Accidental Stalker were made into a Hollywood film, I would cast Paz Vega as Charlotte!

Princess Fiona – Originally from The Kingdom of Far, Far, Away, she is hidden in a tower, waiting to be rescued by Prince Charming. Lord Farquaad, the ruler of Duloc, hires Shrek to bring Princess Fiona to him. When Shrek comes to her rescues, Fiona is not impressed, even when he handily defeats dragons and many other obstacles in their path.

Initially portrayed as the archetypal princess, Fiona regales Shrek with her expectations of courtship and high expectations of how she ought to have been rescued (and by whom). She seems to give off an air of prissiness and even snobbery - but as time passes Princess Fiona's true self emerges. She is really a very down-to-earth and independent woman, who can match or surpass Shrek when it comes to less than regal behavior - farting, belching, to name a few. A loyal friend, and independent, Princess Fiona can defend herself, since she is an expert in Japanese martial arts (hand-to-hand).

Contrast and Comparison

Charlotte has conflict with a King, Fiona has conflict with a Lord!

Charlotte falls for an Irishman, Liam Molloy, while Fiona falls for an Ogre with a Scottish brogue - Shrek!

Charlotte falls into a depression and goes from high maintenance to “in-need-of” maintenance. Fiona falls in love and goes from beauty to ogre.

Finally, Fiona is dosed with a love potion by Prince Charming, which turns her into back into a beautiful woman, yet she still doesn't fall for him. Shrek drinks the potion and turns into a gorgeous Scotsman. But true love is true love, and in the end they decide they'd rather be themselves, Ogres, than anything else.
 
Charlotte and Liam, don't need to be dosed with love potions to be gorgeous OR enjoy a steamy romance - their love for life and each other makes all things possible!

Buckle up, we have Ogres, princesses, celebrities, and strong confident women and men wrestling for the win, in this Fairy Tale Blog Hop!

My celebrity crush is Gerard Butler and I would do pretty mich anything to get a chance to meet him. Whether it be stalk him, or purposely run into him, the feel of that chest and hearing him talk would be worth it.

Celia Kennedy said...

Ash - He is pretty hot! One of my all time favorite movies is, How to Train Your Dragon. - He was the voice of one of the characters.
Thanks for playing along. If you'd like a chance to win the brownies, please submit your email address.

Henry Cavill. I'm shy, so I don't know if I would actually dare go to lengths to meet him. I would probably pass right by him and pretend I don't see him and then kick myself forever. :) lilacqueen75@gmail.com

I'm conflicted... In real life I can perceive it is invading their privacy... but then I think, "When am I going to get this chance again?" I have met several celebs and depending on their approachability factor, I make a decision. Henry Cavill though... I think I'd have to go for it!

I think some actors, like the hemsworth brothers, are quite hot, but i wouldnt do anything to meet them. If i met one of my favorite actors, and they were mean or something, that would shatter the illusion i have of them! I like just dreaming from afar. ;) Thank you!
