I haven't rewatched The Hunchback of Nôtre-Dame
in ages. I think last time I was, like, six, and that's for two main reasons. ( Obnoxiously long post ahead this way if you want )
Everything was prompted by the fact that I've stumbled into Hellfire
again after more than ten years, and I had just finished reading the novel. And I have to say, this is the most amazing, darkest, daring
thing Disney ever inserted in a motion picture. The song alone is worth the whole film. It's beautiful on so many levels, and more complex than it looks - did you ever notice the Confiteor
the priests chant beneath the lyrics contradicts what Frollo is trying to convince himself about? And I love Frollo embracing Esmeralda as her silhouette comes out of the fireplace. Somehow, it looks like something novel!Frollo could do. And I also have to say, I think Eros Pagni - Frollo's Italian voice actor - sounds shamefully passionate and sexy and evil
while he sings, even more than Tony Jay.( 'Hellfire' - Tony Jay )( 'Fuoco d'Inferno' - Eros Pagni )
Actually, most of these musings come from a bunch of interesting thoughts shu_maat
and I shared one afternoon while sipping tea. That girl is one of the most wonderful gifts God - or whoever is in charge up there - blessed me with, along with harriet_yuuko
and everyone else. Thanks. You enrich my life with new perspectives everyday, be it life issues or raw fangirling. I love you, guys ♥.
You think I was done? No way.Hellfire
+ 2 misc. Frollo/Esmeralda icons below, even if I doubt anyone barely sane would like Frollo among their userpics. Whatever.

THAT DOES SOUND LIKE HANDJOB TO ME. FROLLO, FOR THE SAKE OF GOD.
