MadHattersDaughter, The Master Scrivener
I'm not all here myself.
Here is where you can find all of my CYS drawings.
An estranged lover meets an estranged lover, and together they solve a mystery that has been plaguing Blackwood for some time.
The stunning conclusion to the Blackwood Chronicles!
An undertaker meets a dead woman who is more alive than most of the living.
A (mostly) illustrated story involving a very mysterious murder, ghostly romance and spirits possessing --- the dead?
Let's not worry ourselves with the details. This is Blackwood, after all.
UPDATE 11/9/19: Housekeeping and an added Bonus Update Epilogue. All your questions will be answered in time. Enjoy!
UPDATE 3/13/20: New, better art (finally!) The original art looked like it was hastily drawn in twenty minutes as if I was completely over this story by the time for illustrations came. (You all can tell me when my art sucks, sheesh!) Enjoy!
The Gods discover a soul thief among humans.
A story about an ethereal romance and an otherworldly mystery.

If I don't end up deeply regretting agreeing to this I'm going to be very disappointed in you all. ;~)

I always stop watching Beauty and The Beast during the final minutes due to the sheer disappointment of Beast's transformation! As far as I'm concerned (or even Disney's marketing is concerned) Beast does not transform one bit. (The character design, voice and animation of Beast are all great, oh my goodness!) And even the animators knew the audience was not going to appreciate pretty boy Beast, so I suppose they gave up trying. You can talk about that ending to any group of animators and there is always mass sighs and groans.
(Awh, I really like Prince Eric! I guess I fell into the group of little girls who found him endearing.)
The Princess and the Frog and Tangled are both spectacular and definitely deserve way more spotlight. While I can't express how sad it is for me to see (popular) animation switch primarily to computer generated, Mother Gothel is such a fantastic way to show children what a manipulative, abusive person, and relationship, looks like while still being in a movie that still makes me laugh. And Doctor Facilier definitely deserves his place among the iconic villains.

Oh, I love animation (and Disney) so much I go to school for it! And I can and will talk anyone's ear off about it so buckle in! :~)
I created and completed my own tournament bracket of the most well known Disney villains (that are considered Official) to help me narrow down at least top ten of the best ones. (Or even lesser, just my favorites. . .)
Maleficent ultimately won just because she is just so iconic, powerful, aesthetical, and petty. (Maleficent cursed Aurora just because she was not invited to the baby shower, and that is the major-est of bitch moves!) She doesn't have a song but she makes up for any epic musical number with her whole turning-into-a-whole-ass-dragon and then dramatically-dying scene. She is one of the most powerful Disney villains by far. . .if you gloss over the fact she was killed by one measely sword, but she's still alive in our hearts. So alive she even got two live action movies. (Although I did include Chernabog from Fantasia (literally the Devil) but even he doesn't strike fear (and love) into our hearts quite like Maleficent does.)
From there I chose
2) Frollo, mostly for his song Hellfire which is my personal favorite Disney song. Not to mention he is such an insufferable incel, and I hate those a lot.
3) Ratigan, merely because he's voiced by Vincent Price. He is definitely on the classic, mustache-twirling side of evil villains, but he does it so well.
4) Hades. He is the best part of Hercules (although it's not too difficult to be the best part of a movie like Hercules.)
5) Queen of Hearts. She's certainly a favorite of mine for obvious reasons and it will always be a shame we Disney's Alice in Wonderland fans don't get a whole lot of merchandise of any of the characters, but when we do, it's usually of the Queen of Hearts, for good reason. She's aesthetical and postively bonkers!
6) Shan Yu. He's genuinely scary.
7) Ursula. Another very, very powerful villain in a stunning movie. Her villain song is second to Hellfire.
8) Captain Hook. Peter Pan is my second favorite classic Disney movie and Captain Hook is timeless. And for how dorky and clumsy he is, he still managed to scare me as a child.
9) Gaston. Sort of this inverted incel. His song is catchy and memorable and his death will always be satisfying to watch.
10) Lady Tremaine (and the Evil Stepsisters) and Queen Grimhilde (The Evil Queen.) I grouped these four together because it's just more petty women drama. Lady Tremaine also scared me as a child.
I have no doubts that no one will agree with me especially when Scar didn't make the top ten (I just don't like animal movies that much, and especially not The Lion King!) but these ten are definitely some the quintessential Disney Villains.
