Yeeeessss :3 I've seen Tangled. Mother Gothel would be an awesome one and no it doesn't have to be set during the movie.
I didn’t remember Father very well. He was a phantom all my life, a shadow lurking in the corner of my eye just out of sight. Of course I heard stories about him, but never from Mother. She didn’t like to talk about him. Just the mention of him sent her into a sour mood that took me hours of coaxing and apologizing to get her right again. The others in the village told me about him. They said he had been a stranger in town, and my mother just a slip of a girl. I could hardly imagine my mother as young and as foolish as I was. She seemed so wise—not old, never old—but regal. Had she had her chance, Mother could have made a wonderful queen.
Father had been handsome, charming, a little rugged, and every bit a man. He and Mother met, and somewhere between stolen kisses and whispered promises, I came into this life. The next night, he left. No one even knew his name. All Mother had left of him was a handkerchief embroidered with F.R. in a delicate, curling script and me.
Mother was strong. Stronger than anyone I ever knew. She raised me on her own with not a single act of kindness from the village. Mother was never bitter about it; she kept her head high and continued to serve as the village healer. She knew the ways of the earth and the powers it held. Her mother taught her, and she taught me.
Ever since I can remember, Mother held me in front of the mirror and whispered to me, “Darling Gothel, my sweet child, you must listen well. Beauty is power. If you are not beautiful, then you are nothing and you have nothing.
“But you must be careful, for there are those who will take advantage of that. Guard your heart well. The world is dark, and selfish, and cruel. If it finds even the slightest ray of sunshine, it destroys it.”
Many times I tried to protest. I tried to tell her that maybe there was more to life than being beautiful or powerful, but every time she would look me in the eye and tell me, “Mother knows best.”
I blossomed into the very image of my mother, and I held every word she ever said to me close to my heart. Because of her, I knew what dangers the world holds for me. Because of her, I could protect myself against them. Because of her, I was strong.
