When all is lost, then all is found is a short Frozen II oneshot by Ravens_Are_My_Sidekicks that rewrites the film's ending.

The synopsis is that "What if Anna breaking the dam did not free Elsa?". In Elsa's absence, Anna temporarily takes over as queen. She, however, refuses to take her sister's title unless she's certain that Elsa is dead. Anna goes on a quest to find Elsa and bring her back home.


This fanfic provides examples of:

  • Alternate Universe Fic: Elsa isn't instantly revived, Arendelle floods, and when Elsa is revived, she returns to Arendelle instead of choosing to stay in the north and having Anna rule.
  • Fix Fic: This fic rewrites the film's ending so the sisters don't separate like they do in the film, which the author found out of character.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Elsa freezing doesn't kill her entirely, but suspends her "on the line between life and death."
  • The Quest: After a few months focusing on helping her kingdom rebuild in the aftermath of a flood, Anna goes on a journey to find Elsa, having a feeling that she's still alive.
  • What If?: This fic explores what would happen in Frozen II if Anna breaking the dam did not free Elsa.
