Fanfic / The Queen's Consort

Go To

The Queen's Consort is a Frozen (2013) fanfiction written by 1Syphira.

Elsa is the Faerie Queen of Winter, with Anna - daughter of the Summer Queen - as her wife and queen consort. As they celebrate with the rest of the royal court, Elsa is afflicted by a solar flare, giving her amnesia. Anna must help the Queen of Winter remember before the Darkness consumes the world.

This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Species Change: With the exception of Flynn and Maleficent (who was already a fairy), all of the characters are portrayed as nature-based fairies.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: While dark is portrayed as a destructive and scary force, it is not evil per se. Maleficent, as Queen of Night, is an expert on darkness and the magic that can harness it and she is looked upon by the rest of fairy kind with both fear and respect.
  • Fantastic Racism: Maleficent clearly has no respect for humans, given her attitude towards Flynn.
  • Happily Married: Elsa and Anna have clearly never left the honeymoon stage, especially after Elsa finds out that she is married to her after she gains amnesia.
  • Identity Amnesia: After Anna tells the amnesiac Elsa that they were married, Elsa then spends all of her time seducing and flirting with Anna, something Anna is not used to considering how introverted pre-amnesia Elsa was.
  • Light Is Good: Deconstructed, as while light is something embraced and dwelled upon by most of fairy kind, it is not a simple case of "light = good, dark = bad" (see Dark Is Not Evil above). In-fact, one of the biggest dilemmas in the story is that a random solar flare gives Elsa magic-based amnesia, making things harder for when the ritual to keep the darkness away needs casting.
  • Nature Spirit: The fairies act as this, charged with managing the four seasons and various other facets of nature (day, night, sky, etc.)
    • Elsa, current Queen of Winter
    • Queen of Summer
    • Queen of Autumn
    • Queen of Spring
    • Maleficent, Queen of Night
    • Rapunzel, Queen of Daylight
    • Peter Pan, King of the Sky
    • Robin Hood, King of the Wilds
    • There is mention of a "Goddess of the Seasons", but she is never actually seen or described in detail, merely being a deity whom the fairies worship.
  • The Power of Love: It was light magic that gave Elsa amnesia, so it stands to reason that light magic can undo it, and what is more bright and pure than love? The trope is practically stated by name.
  • Raging Stiffie: Sported by Hans when Anna practically makes out with Elsa right in front of him after he came onto her.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Inverted, as here Elsa and Anna are not sisters.
  • Token Human: Flynn Rider, King of Thieves and Rapunzel's human husband.
  • Vicious Cycle: Every few thousand years, the darkness arrives with the intent of swallowing the world. At that time, every fairy out there comes to the Standing Stones and uses their inherent magic to prevent this apocalypse.
  • Youngest Child Wins: Every daughter of Summer tried wooing Elsa, but she wound up falling in love with the youngest, Anna.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: It is established that while fairies are immortal by nature, they would feel when it is time for them to die and "pass on across the veil", portraying death as soft-deterministic in nature. When a royal fairy feels like it is their time, they have a successor whether it is their own child or an apprentice (as was the case with Elsa and her mother).
