[[WMG: Snow White is a half Sidhe princess.]]
There is pretty much no other reason why Cernunnos and the bridge troll would defer to her the way they do.

*** Except that, by the end of the movie, the pagans have been destroyed (Ravenna and crew), converted (the dwarves, though they may not count), or remain apart from the human/Christian majority (the forest spirits), indicating an at least comfortably dominant Christianity that allows paganism to exist because it's no longer a threat. Ravenna is a reminder that pagan forces can cause trouble if provoked, but pagan spirits helped get the new Queen crowned, so "all the good" was a generalized term to avoid offending said pagan forces while not directly acknowledging them as equal to God. [[note]]Note that this [=WMG=] is just for fun, not an attempt to argue that a Christian/pagan allegory existed in the movie. That's giving them entirely too much credit.[[/note]][[note]]Note also that the implication is that Christianity = decency and that an entire group of endemic religions is worthy of devastation and death. Christians are not well known for their tolerance towards non-abrahamic spiritualities, after all.[[/note]]

Before the movies, whenever he got too arrogant, his memory was erased and Mjolnir taken away. Prove himself, and he would come back to Asgard, better. There is [[Comics/TheMightyThor precedent.]]

* Frankly I didn't read anything much romantic from William anyway, more old friend, whereas the Huntsman actually seemed romanticaly interested. Notice he does the occasional low key attempt at flirting with her and this never bothers William at all even though he's usually there when it happens.

* In fairness, the axe is a traditional tool/weapon hybrid, since "huntsman" and "woodsman" [[hottip:*:meaning ''"person who makes a living from the woods,"'' not ''"person who just cuts wood"'']] are often synonyms; an axe is useful for splitting wood and removing obstacles as well as for defending yourself while in the woods, usually against wild animals, without having to carry a separate tool ''and'' a separate weapon. In ''Little Red Riding Hood'', the titular girl is saved by a Huntsman wielding an axe, who is sometimes known as the Woodsman. Hunters didn't just use bows and arrows, and there are modern hunting axes today, though they're not meant for battle. Of course, it's likely that the dwarves ''did'' teach this particular Huntsman to fight, but his choice in weapon isn't necessarily an indicator.

Another possible theory: Both men were only half in love with her. William remembered a little girl who was his best friend growing up. He needed to get to know the woman before really being in love. Eric is still hung up on his late wife and can't really fall in love with anyone right now. (He even goes on about her just before kissing Snow.) Snow White reminds him of her, so he's half in love too. Two half loves equal a whole one, far as magic is concerned. Probably, Snow will marry William and Eric will find mutual comfort in that widow woman from the village who helped them out.

Doesn't really deal with why it ''didn't'' work with William, but since I didn't really see the movie as being about a love triangle I'm not too bothered? IDK, Tropers, share with me.
