"But I'll even break tradition if it prevents you from leaving me."
BRAVE TWINS revamps the story's plot with one major change: Merida has an identical twin sister named "Erin".
One twin is an ideal future queen—studious and regal—while the other skirts studying in preference of athletics. One day it's noted that the twins are old enough to marry. Erin's future husband will be chosen based off a series of challenges. Unwilling to be split from her sister, Merida decides to secretly take part of the games and win them so that her sister won't be married off.
BRAVE TWINS provides examples of:
- Alternate Universe Fic: Merida has a twin sister. Almost the entire film is avoided because Merida wins her sister's hand in "marriage", removing the main issue of the plot.
- Always Identical Twins: Not only do Fergus and Elinor have identical twin daughters, but they have identical Same-Sex Triplets as well.
- Girly Girl And Tomboy: Implied with the twins. Merida's an athletic tomboy but her sister lacks her passions.
- Polar Opposite Twins: Erin is studious and dresses formally while Merida is a tomboyish Rebellious Princess.
- My Sister Is Off-Limits: Merida doesn't want to be separated from Erin and won't allow her to be married off into an Arranged Marriage.
