    So the other day I was opening up my mail, and since I was already expecting a couple of packages, I wasn't even bothering to look at the return addresses. I opened up one of the LBEs and was puzzled to see something that looked like a figurine, which I definitely hadn't ordered. So I flipped the envelope over and finally looked at the return address - it was from BRUCE, aka @bcol. How did I recognize his address? Because it's his freakin' RAK MONTH. Yes, this man actually had the audacity to zap me during his RAK! And not just any zap, a freakin' GRAIL ZAP.

    It turns out that the figurine was in fact a Tangled Christmas ornament. Now idk if this was just pure coincidence, or another case of a DPF member being unbelievably thoughtful (I suspect it's the latter.) But back when @Disneychildwithin zapped me that amazing Megara ornament a couple months ago, I *casually* mentioned that I want to do an all-Disney themed tree next Christmas, but don't actually have many Disney ornaments, so I'm going to try to gradually collect some over the year. I actually had to go back to the thread to double check that I even posted about this, because I only vaguely remembered saying it. But much like @LittleBird and her sneaky Joanna zap, I'm pretty sure Bruce must have committed my offhand remark to memory and tailored this gift special for me. Or else he has psychic powers. Either way, I love it!!!

    What makes it extra perfect is that it's from the Tangled TV show, not the movie. Don't get me wrong, I like the movie! But it copied a lot from my beloved Anastasia, yet Tangled is the more popular film, so yeah, I have a bit of a grudge lol (I take movies WAY too seriously. xD) But I totally love the TV show!!! It's so cute and funny! I've seen every episode. And I love that this has Cassandra on it - y'all know I love me a brassy, sarcastic chick (see: username.) Also, Punzie's hair is so gorgeous! It's hard to tell from the pic, but it's got this shiny, metallic kind of paint that makes it look like it's glowing!

    Anyway, that's not even the best part. There was also something hidden under several layers of bubble wrap. As I began to unwrap it, I could suddenly make out what it was, and my jaw dropped.

    I've never been able to find a trade for it, and it's totally out of my price range. And Bruce just GAVE it to me. Just like that. I have no words, so gifs will have to do.

    Seriously, I am so touched. We have the most amazing community ever, and I'm constantly blown away by the kindness and generosity I've both received and witnessed, as well as the thoughtfulness and personal touches that go into things like this. Thank you so, so much Bruce!!! And jeez, thanks a whole lot for upstaging me during your own RAK. xD Check your mailbox, btw! ;)

    That ornament looks terrible in the close-up picture. Feel free to reapply makeup to the other character especially. Is she wearing glasses in the cartoon program? I wasn't sure who she was, but I figured it says Disney eh, so it must be OK. As far as the pin goes, I believe it may have been subliminal messaging from you. Mind control I say. I was able to trade for Megs knowing it was going to you. I will post my gift from Sarah on another post but this was taped on the package. Coincidence? I think not. They were both in the mail at the same time. You are a great example of our DPF family. Thank you for being here.[​IMG]

    Don't worry, it looks just fine to me! :D She has kind of a smoky-eye makeup on the show, so that's probably why it may look funny if you haven't seen it. What bothers me more is that Punzie gets her magical blonde hair back in the first episode, even though the series takes place before her wedding to Flynn/Eugene, and she clearly still had her cropped brown hair when they got married in the short film!! Alls I'm sayin' is they better explain that in the series finale. xD Sorry, off-topic rant over. At least the long hair/shiny paint makes for a super pretty ornament!

    And LOL. I put Meg/Esmeralda stickers on all my pin mail, but apparently I had a premonition or something with that specific one... maybe I'M the one with psychic powers. xD I'm so touched that you traded for Meg specifically with me in mind - it makes it even more special!! <3

    They actually have said that YES, they will address this. They are very aware of the following short, and have assured there is a point to their story, and by it's end it will be explained, ie: she'll lose the hair.
