Does anyone else find Tangled to be a distressingly realistic portrayal of the effects an emotionally abusive/manipulative parent can have on a kid? Of course Rapunzel is emotionally all over the place (one second overflowing with joy over the littlest things, and the next self-blaming and defensive and scared of her own shadow); she couldn't be anything else. She and Flynn get their supposed happy ending, but I'm positive it's going to be a long time before that girl can manage a healthy relationship of any kind.
In other words, I need fic.
ETA: Have I mentioned my love for A03 recently? I love with big puffy hearts. AND it seems I am not the first person to think it would be neat if Flynn Rider was a girl.
