Cosplay reference commission, here’s the original post for Ariel and Eric
One of the three original Jaegers built at the dawn of the Kaiju war, Briar Rose walks into battle like something out of a dream. But it took a while for the pilots Aurora and Phillip to get to that point. Aurora was the daughter of a wealthy backer to the Jaeger Program. Long before the giant robots were even commissioned there was backlash from Kaiju worshiping extremists. One went so far as to promise that something would happen to Aurora if her father did not stop the production and use of the Jaegers.
One year later they made good on that threat. She was kidnapped and drugged with a lethal dose of a poison derived from the alien monsters but she was a fighter and instead of dying, she only fell into a coma. Phillip lead a special tasks force and relentlessly searched for her until they found her sleeping body dumped in a temple built for worshiping the monstrous beasts. They got her back to a hospital and were able to flush the toxins from her blood stream, but it was Phillip’s blood transfusion that really saved her. The kiss that sealed her safety.
When she awoke she made it her first priority to get well enough to join the Jaeger program to spite those who harmed her. Briar Rose was the third Jaeger to take down a Kaijuu and over the course of it’s run managed to tackle quite a few more. Since retired, Aurora works with two of the other rangers Snow and Cinderella to coach and help younger pilots with both the physical and mental aspects of the war. Having suffered from PTSD from both her kidnapping and from fighting on the frontlines, she makes an excellent counselor.

Outcasted by most of the other recruits Vanellope and Ralph found each other and found comfort and friendship. The two of them only wanted to be respected as competent pilots, but the other rangers only saw them for what they perceived as flaws. Though Ralph was a bit of an older guy and a bit of a bigger guy, it was because of this that he was stronger than anyone and could wreck anyone’s score in a simulator. Vanellope had it a little tougher. She was nearing on twenty-one but she still looked (as some put it) like a kid. There was also the fact that she had a neurological twitch that everyone said would prevent her from even stepping foot inside a jaeger let alone piloting one.Though it was probably the hardest thing she ever did, she never listened to them.
Away from the noise in the sparring rings and cafeterias, Ralph and Vanellope found their own time and space to practice together. Then surprised everyone when they had a near perfect score in a simulator together. When they finally got their own Jaeger (Which they insisted be named President Fart-feathers even though it’s officially called Sugar Rush) they were not only surprised to find that Vanellope’s twitch never caused any problems, but actually gave their Jaeger the curious advantage of being able to punch faster and harder than what should be physically possible.

This is why I shouldn’t be allowed to draw. I’m handing in my pencil and ruler. Good run. Okay.
This is totes not part of my Disney Jaeger Series (But it totally is).
You are not dumb at all, it’s a bit confusing especially if you don’t know what the NATO phonetic alphabet is. Basically, in military, air force, and what not, they use an alphabet made so that there would be no confusion as to what letters they were talking about. I was playing around with a couple other ideas but really nothing sounded all that good. And then I remembered that in the plane sequence of the movie where Helen is piloting and being rad and trying to communicate with the base, she used the terminology (“India-Golf-Niner-Niner transmitting in the blind guard, disengage, repeat, disengage.”) which gave me the idea of her settling the their dispute about what to call their Jaeger by just using their initials. Victor for the V in Violet, and Delta for the D in Dash. V first because she is older.
It’s probably the most out there of any of my Jaeger names as far as references to the movies (which are hard to come up with in two word pairs that sound like they could be called over an intercom) but I still like it.
Two of the youngest pilots in the corps, brother and sister duo Dash and Violet Parr pilot one of the first in a series of “Designer Jaegers” created by the brilliant mind of Edna Mode. The idea behind them was to give an advantage by studying kaiju remains and figuring out how they work, to discover how to take them down faster and more efficiently. And look fabulous while doing so.
Their Jaeger, Victor Delta (Named by their mother, when neither of them could solidify a name they liked, using the NATO phonetic alphabet and the first initial of their names), is equipped with a finely tuned system that allows it to move faster than most other jaegers. By studying the kaijus eyes they were able to figure out a projected frequency that disrupts the lightwaves around it, effectively making it invisible to the monsters. One newer and more experimental features it has electromagnetic shields that form kinetic barriers when powered up. They may not be 100% kaiju proof, but they do a damn good job in the field.

For a long time Kuzco was content to be just the heir to one of the largest investors to the Jaeger program, donating tons in resources and funds to the cause, but when he realized just how much fame and popularity the pilots were getting, he signed up and demanded to have the best Jaeger of them all. All throughout training he kept on getting his ass handed back to him.
Finding a drift partner was near impossible because no one wanted to deal with his attitude or highly demanding needs. Along comes Pacha. A husband and loving father, extremely patient and although not willing to take any of Kuzco’s shenanigans, is calm enough to work through them. Their Jaeger (Officially called the Gilded Emperor, but often called the Gilded Llama behind their back due to the odd shape of it’s head) is indeed one of the best. It is extremely good at climbing, and quite agile for it’s size. Kuzco would never admit it outside the drift, but he wouldn’t want to be paired with anyone else.

So a couple friends of mine are going to Shaterdome Atlanta and I really really really want to join them, but I need to raise a bit of money first for all sorts of cool things like gas money, hotel money, and for that awesome stuff called food.
So I’m selling prints! For 25$ each plus shipping I’ll send you your favorite (or favorites) printed out on matte paper and signed. If you would like a print of something that is not in my Jaeger pilot series, then that’s totally awesome too! Feel free to check out my art tag and see if there is anything you like.
Or if you are just feeling super duper cool, you can donate using the neat little button I just added to the sidebar on my blog.
Send me an email if you are interested! firstname.lastname@example.org
First of all, thankyou <3
And I don’t mind at all. When you take any fictional character, I think it’s important to separate the difference between how they work in their story, and how they’d be in reality. Hans is the kind of person I would loathe to be around. He’s manipulative and extremely good at it. He’s the kind of person who would keep someone in an abusive relationship to further his own needs, and the person he’s with might not even realize it because he’s pretty and because he’s so good at being good. He’s a classic manipulator, he’s righteously awful, lying to both sisters and y’know, trying to chop off Elsa’s head.
But from a character standpoint he’s awesome. He is probably one of the better developed characters IN Frozen, he’s got pathos and reasons for why he does the things he does. It doesn’t excuse him at all, but it gives a richness to his character. Villains doing evil for the sake of doing evil can be fun sometimes, but the more in depth a villain the more interesting they are. The fact that Hans could hold up his facade and flourish within it says a whole lot about him. He is incredibly intelligent, he knows how to read people, and he is capable of crafting and continuing multiple lies at once and improvisationally.
From the standpoint of my AU, I’d argue that he’d even be able to keep certain things out of the drift. Unless one of them were to chase the rabbit, the only thing you would really be getting is a vague sense of past memories, he may be able to focus only on the sympathetic parts long enough to get to mental synchronization, at which point they would be thinking simultaneously about fighting Kaiju, not what is going on elsewhere or personally.
In my Disney Jaeger Series, I have most (if not all) of their stories set up in about the first act of their individual storylines (if it was not a crossover, just think about it like the first twenty minutes of the film) That way, if it were to play out like a movie, or a comic, or a fanfic, each team would still be able to go through their character arcs and complete a good tale.
It seems like a LOOOOOOT of people (I read all the tags on my art) are hella confused about Hans, I’ve explained it, I’ve seen all of Frozen, I hate Hans as a person, but as a character he’s neat. Too neat to just toss under the table. In my head I have it blocked out that when he does eventually turn, be it in a Jaeger or outside of one, the resulting fight would leave him kicked out for good (both figuratively and literally) And Elsa would absolutely have to take up the mantle as Anna’s co-pilot. She’s extremely reluctant at first, she’d prefer to stick to her steel and circuitry and code, but through and for the love of her Sister, she dons the drive suit and becomes the new dominant pilot for Frozen Heart. (and yes, I have planned on doing a second picture for this, but after I drew all the techies, and it wwwaaaaas going to be a surprise)
On the edge of extinction, humanity turned to those willing and ready to defend it. Those who stepped up and worked in teams to protect all that they know and hold dear. Inside the base (commonly referred to as “The Magic Kingdom”) a living community thrives, Rangers, Engineers, Scientists, and civilians live out their lives not in fear, but defiance of the Kaiju threat. Each set of rangers has a different approach to battles. But one thing is true of all of them, they stand and fight for those they love.
First set of what will probably be many. As in the cockpit, the dominant pilot stands to the right (our left). Check out all their individual posts for more in-depth stories on each team.
The pilots of the reliable Jaeger ‘Dream Giver’, Pocahontas and Nakoma have been together since they were kids. When they were given the option to train in the corps to become Jaeger pilots, Pocahontas leapt at the new opportunity. Nakoma was a little more hesitant, but eventually realized that someone had to be there to protect her free spirited friend, to comfort her when she needed it. And besides, it wasn’t like she was going to let her best girl get in a giant robot with someone else by her side.

The last person Merida ever expected to be drift compatible with was her mother. Growing up they had a lot of disputes about… well about pretty much everything. Elinor had a very strict idea of what her daughter should be doing and should not be doing and absolutely about where she should be going during the days while she and her husband went off on missions.
But when her father lost his leg and decided to go into early retirement she stepped up to the plate and found just what an amazing team she and her mother could make. Fergus coaches from the sidelines, but honestly the ladies know what they are doing and use their expertise in range weapons to protect the coasts in their Jaeger (Ursa Major)

Living on the streets is hard enough, but living on the streets of a coastal city after the Kaiju attacks began? Near impossible. You have to be quick on your feet and ready to run and hide, ready to do anything to survive. Aladdin had been doing this for most of his life, and even though he was in a pretty bad situation, he always gave whatever he had to spare to the younger kids, those who survived when their parents did not.
One day while out and about, he laid his eyes on the most beautiful girl he had ever seen. In an attempt to impress her he began chatting up how he was a Jaeger Pilot and how tough it was out in the streets. She, seeing right through his bluff, humored his attempt and even asked him to show her a few pointers then asked him for a friendly sparring match.
Two moves later Aladdin was on the floor and Jasmine revealed that she actually was in training to become a pilot. He fell in love instantly. She gave him one more shot, and upon seeing what incredible raw talent he had realized what a good team they might make. She urged him to sign up for the corps and after some extensive training, they streamlined him right up to the top. Their fighting styles vary quite a lot, but meld together beautifully in the drift.
Their Jaeger(Arabian Knight) is a little bit smaller than other Jaegers because it has an experimental flight drive. As you might guess it’s quite hard to get something near the size of a skyscraper off the ground for very long. But what it lacks in size it does not lack in power and has taken down many Kaiju and plans to take down many more.

I’m Asexual and Aromantic, Non-romantic pairings are so so so so so soooooo Important to me. It’s actually one of the reasons I paired Anna with Hans rather than Kristoff, because it creates a completely different kind of relationship between them. People don’t necessarily have to like someone to be drift compatible with them (See Stacker Pentecost and Chuck at the end) I imagine that because Hans wanted so desperately to be in the limelight, be a jaeger pilot, he learned to mimic other people’s fighting styles and chose Anna because she was a kind of young and naieve jockey who was up and coming and had the newest jaeger all lined up for her and whoever would be her co-pilot. Her sister really distrusts him, and if I were to write anything longer, you bet your ripe bananas there would be drama (drama that leads to Anna putting on a drive suit, ehehe)
