Letters from Elsa and Anna (I)

“I’ve followed you since my legs could first stumble after your snow trail. Now you’ve given me your kingdom, as if you think that’ll stop me. Oh, sweetie. This queen, your star pupil, will never stop dreaming of you. Wondering. Fretting. Doting.”

– Queen Anna, to Elsa

“There are so many things I would like to say to your younger self, Anna. ‘I’m sorry.’ ‘Let’s play to your heart’s content.’ ‘Break through that door with your strong fists and hold me tight.’ But now I can be your guardian angel.”

– Elsa, to Queen Anna

“Every defining moment of my life was marked by the fear of losing you, and the thrill of finding you. I command you to never leave me. We laugh. But the joke masks desperation. My heart bares to all my shameless wish to never lose you till death.”

– Queen Anna, to Elsa

“A society reporter recently asked me what my favourite colours were. Can you guess, Elsa? I actually said orange first, because it reminds me of Kristoff. But autumn red will always be my own colour, because Gale rides the autumn leaves that deliver me your letters. Red is the fire of my heart.”

– Queen Anna, to Elsa

“Our strategy went just the way you planned. Maren and I struck when you looked weakest. Our foes are eating humble pie. Our vision of a united Northuldra-Arendelle is possible. You sly girl, you. Now hurry back here and tell me how proud you are of me.”  

– Queen Anna, to Elsa

By HM Queen Anna

Her Majesty’s column is published exclusively by The AG. This was reprinted from last night’s evening edition of the paper.  

To this day, there is a faction within the government, and perhaps even within my court, which is reflexively suspicious of Elsa’s weekend visits to the palace. It infuriates me to no end that they can’t understand that Elsa is more than just comfort and company, as she’s always been. She is my greatest advisor. Of course, I couldn’t do without Kristoff’s presence, and I defer to General Mattias on all manner of big and important matters. Even this paper’s old and cranky editor, who Elsa and I affectionately call “chief,” has been advising and aiding us since my eighteenth.
