Elsa&Jack Fanfiction - Part 1
The day was cold and stormy, as it usually was in Elsa's castle of ice. Elsa didn't mind the cold though, she actually enjoyed it. Her kingdom of isolation was all she could ask for, or so she thought. Elsa sighed as her hands worked the familier knots of a braid into her hair, she gazed in the mirror at her reflection. The strong and confident woman she saw in the mirror was very different from the young child she once was. Her feelings of being alone and scared had all but vanished, replaced with feelings of strength and spirit. The little girl who once was broken and scared, was gone know. The little girl who once was binded in secrecy by her gift, had long since disapeared. Why must I hide my powers as if they were a curse? she asked herself angrily as she stood from her chair, made from ice, and strode to the window overlooking all of Arendale. A feeling of abandonment and betrayal crept up her throat, threatening to sufforcate her, but she quickly fought it back down into the pit of her stomach.
They were better off without me, she told herself. Anna can marry Hans and they can have many children to carry on the line. I would only be a nuisance to their happiness.
A single tear escaped her eye and fell. With a quick movement of her hand, Elsa turned the tear into ice and watched as it hit the ground and shattered into pieces. Taking a deep breath of satisfaction, she began to hum as she walked about her castle. Her shoes made a "clip clop clip clop" sound as she walked along. Trying hard to bury the thought of her home, and her people, Elsa began to distract herself. Randomly, she shot ice into the air, letting it fall where it pleased. As she took her stress out by shooting ice, Elsa was unaware of the cold creeping into her heart and already beginning to freeze that which was once full of love.
Jack Frost stood at the base of the mountain, looking up at the great castle of ice. His face was expressionless, but inside his mind his thoughts were swirling faster than the wind. He scratched his beard stubble as he thought, which was dark brown but flecked with white. His clothes were plain and simple, like that of the commonfolk, which made his giant staff with a ball made of crystal hanging of the end, look out of place. Since his boyhood days, full of fun and mischieve, he had grown more mature. Mostly, because of the burden he carried. Jack had sensed Elsa's power the minute she had arrived into this world. The memory of her birth was as clear as if it had been yesterday...
The day of Elsa's birth started like any other day for Jack. He had woken up to the sun shining in his face, and went to bed after he had sung to the moon that night. As he floated, sleeping peacefully in slumber inside the water of a frozen lake, all of a sudden a great gust of wind raged through the small cove where the lake lay. The Wind raged on, getting stronger and stronger as it hurried to tell Jack the latest news from all over the world. Jack had pretended to not hear it calling to him, it had long since been a game he played with the Wind. Making Wind wait longer to say what it needed to say to Jack. Most of everything was gossip about this or that, but occasionally the Wind had something usefull to tell.
"Wake up Jack, wake up! I have news to say from Arendale!" the Wind coaxed at him.
Jack grinned and, having toyed with Winnd long enough, pretended to be just waking up. He stretched and yawned, and climbed out of the lake. Then rubbed his eyes, "What is it Wind? What do you have to say, that is so important?" he asked.
Wind whipped at Jack's clothes, "A baby girl has been born to the King and Queen of Arendale!" the Wind exclaimed bubbly, "The baby girl has been called Elsa, and you will not believe the news I have for you! No no you won't! You could not guess, could you?"
Jack rolled his eyes to the moon, "Speak Wind, tell me what is so important so I can get back to sleep!" he replied.
"The baby girl named Elsa....has been born with magical abilities!" the Wind exclaimed, as it swirled faster in excitment.
Jack, now interested far more than ever leaped into the air and let the Wind catch him, "Magical abilites?!" he burst with energy.
The Wind wiped faster and faster, "Yes! No one knows yet, but I have sensed it. She will be the Queen of Winter one day!"
Jack jumped up and down in the air, "How?" he asked in excitment, "Take me to Arendale quickly!" he told the Wind.
Without another delay, the Wind raced over fields, mountains and lakes to get to Arendale. When they arrived, the Wind set Jack down in the middle of the castle's courtyard. No one was about, for it was still dark. Jack thanked the Wind and told him to wait around until Jack's dismissed him. The Wind agreed and then Jack started off toward the castle door. The guards had let him in promptly, on account of knowing Jack Frost as a friend, then one went up to wake the King and Queen.
When Jack had presented the King and Queen with his thoughts on Elsa's powers, they immediatly rejected the idea. "Our daughter is normal as normal can be, you Jack Frost will not say another word about this to anyone! Not a single person will know of your foolish notions!" The Queen had burst out.
"Your Highness," Jack adressed the Queen like an ordinary person would, even though he outranked her, "What I say is true, please listen to me. Your daughter will need education if she is to make proper use of her abilities. When the time comes, please call on me. I can help her control herself in ways you would not imagine."
The King and Queen exchanged glances, and not knowing what to make of the whole affair, agreed to let Jack tutor Elsa when she reached her seventh birthday.
Jack, satisfied with their answer, asked to see the child once before he left the castle, not to return until her sixth birthday. The King agreed and then led Jack up the stairs to the royal bedchamber where Elsa lay curled up in her crib. Jack peeked over the crib, and a smile spread across his face, "She is beautiful," he whispered, more to himself than to the King and Queen. Elsa lay curled up beneath a blanket, with her eyes closed she sucked on her tiny hand. Instantly he knew Elsa would do great things once she was older, Jack's smile grew bigger and he gently touched his lips to her forehead, a shiver ran through Elsa's tiny body and Jack smiled. He had left his mark on her. Turning back to the King and Queen, he apologized once more for waking them up at such a late hour, excused himself and then jumped from the window of their chambers. The Wind raced to catch him, and he soared back towards his home as the King and Queen watched from their bedroom window. With a smile on his face, Jack yelled out encouargments to the wind to go faster. Happy he was not alone anymore, Jack let the Wind take him anywhere. He looked up to the moon and smiled, "Thank you" he whispered under his breath.
Now, twentie-one years later, Jack stands before the castle, feeling nothing but hatred and a need for revenge. All his happiness was drained from him long ago, and the time is almost right to unleash the anger he had kept hidden inside him for all those long years. With a grin on his face, a grin that once would have held mischieve but now held hatred, Jack called upon his old friend the Wind to take him up the mountain, towards Elsa's castle.
