holy shit i just thought of a really sad headcanon for frozen
so obv when Elsa is locked up in the dungeon you can see that she has cuffs covering her entire hands. it wouldn’t make any sense to put a normal, non-magic wielding person in cuffs like that and i don’t think it would have been possible to have a blacksmith fashion the cuffs in the, what, day or so that Hans went to go retrieve Elsa?? in fact, it looks like this entire dungeon area was specifically catered to holding Elsa. and it honestly seems like Hans couldn’t have had them fashioned anyway without a moral outcry from Arendelle considering at the time she hadn’t actually committed a crime yet, and there was still the possibility of them peacefully bringing Elsa back and having her change everything.
so what i’m saying is
what if her parents had that dungeon and cuffs fashioned specifically for the chance that Elsa went rogue? what if they eventually had the full intention of locking up their daughter?
reading this my face slowly twisted up in horror as i said ‘oh. oh. oh' out loud with steadily rising distress
