Prince Hans closed the door behind him, weariness of the day starting to catch up to him. So many things had happened in the past two days: from his engagement to Anna, to the discovery of newly-crowned Queen Elsa possessing supernatural powers over ice and snow, to battling a monster that the queen had created in an attempt to get her back.

Thankfully, the party had succeeded, and he had just returned from sentencing the queen to death for treason against the crown. The man smirked, as he crossed the room and plopped onto the couch.

"The feeling of power... I could get used to it," he said to himself, crossing his legs and resting his back on the arm rest.

"Could you now?"

Hans sat up, startled by the eerie, low pitched tone. Sure enough, by his side, he was greeted by the sight of the black-clad man, dark dust around the visitor settling and disappearing into nothing.

"Good heaven, Pitch," Hans said, a hand flying to his heart and taking a few breaths to calm himself. "You scared me."

Pitch gave the other man an amused smile. "I know." The spirit chuckled. "I never get tired of seeing people's faces when I sneak up on them from the shadows. Especially those that scream in terror. It's actually quite fun."

"Right..." The prince glared at the spirit, not finding the situation as funny as he did. Recovering his bearings, he quickly got to business. "So where have you been all afternoon? The storm's been getting worse by the hour that we had to advise the citizens board themselves in their homes."

"Calm yourself, your highness. I didn't spend all this time doing nothing." The spirit smiled. "But let's just say that I took care of a...minor hindrance."

The prince looked skeptical at the news, but decided to let it slide than call out the immortal being. After all, this was the boogeyman he was talking to. He was aware that he didn't have a fighting chance against the spirit -- but at least, he was grateful that they were allies in this.

"Right," the prince said, his arms getting comfortable on his legs as his entire posture relaxed. "Then allow me to provide you an update on the current events, in case you haven't heard."

His gaze shifted upward to meet Pitch's dark ones, and he resisted the urge to shiver. It was like...looking into an endless darkness that could steal your soul...

The prince mentally shook his head. Focus, Hans. Focus.

"The queen has been captured," he started. "We've placed her in the dungeon and kept her hands restrained so she would not be able to use her magic...and I've sentenced her to death to stop the storm. All that remains is to find Anna and marry her, or kill her, if need be, so that I will have the throne."

Hans imagined the future with him as Arendelle's king. The mere thought sent chills through his body in excitement.

Pitch smiled, moving towards the window. "Very good... You've held up your end of the bargain."

The auburn haired man steeled his gaze at the spirit. "Have you lived up to yours?"

Instead of being intimidated -- like it was even remotely possible for him to be intimidated by the likes of Hans, Pitch thought -- the spirit of fear chuckled lightly, clearly amused by the situation. Mortals. So brave...but so foolish.

Lifting his hand and opening his palm, the dark spirit manipulated his signature black dust so that it swirled in his palm, before closing it with a great deal of force. A dark aura and red light emitted from his hand, and when it opened, a flurry of red snowflakes charged out and spread through the room.

In a matter of seconds, the walls frosted, the fire froze over and Hans' arms wrapped around himself in an attempt to warm up against the cold.

"The soon-to-be-former queen and I currently share control over her powers..." Pitch explained in a low but smooth tone. "The more you plunge her into absolute fear and despair, control will continue to shift in my favor.  Once I have absolute control and you banish her from this world...they will be solely mine for all eternity." Pitch's eyes met Hans'. "And of course, I will deliver my promise of unfreezing Arendelle so you, Hans, can become its king."

"Good," Hans said, standing up and moving towards the door. "Everything's going according to plan then. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be leaving to go somewhere warmer." As the prince opened the door, he glanced back at the boogeyman. "I'd wish to see this room in its previous state when I return."

The dark spirit gave him a mocking bow. "Of course, your grace."

Missing the sarcastic tone in Pitch's voice, Hans smiled at the way he was addressed and exited the room...

...and once the door closed behind him, Pitch released a surge of dark dust, turning the room entirely black. No light entered, no light escaped. It was as if the surroundings were an endless darkness.

"Insolent mortals..." the black-haired  man growled. "Give them a little power and they think that they're king of the world." He sighed, waving his hand and creating a few of his nightmares from the darkness. One of the skeletal horse neighed in agreement and Pitch shook his head. "No matter... As irritating as that imbecilic prince is, he is an efficient pawn."

A dark-skinned hand moved to pet one of the nightmares. "To think...he doesn't even think that I have no reason to unfreeze Arendelle once the powers become mine."

He chuckled as if told the funniest joke in the world.

"Humans can be so...gullible."
Prompt: This serves as a cap for the parts of Frozen that didn't really make sense to me.

1) Why would Hans not kill Elsa when he had the chance? Sure, he ended up attempting to do so later, but it didn't make sense that he didn't when he could've just said that she attacked them or something and then she had to be killed for the good of everyone.  This sounds more like a plan he'd probably go for, given his charisma.

Explained this away in my story for the reason that Pitch needed to make her fear to gain absolute control over her powers, so he needed time and the threat of her to be executed so she would fear for her life enough.

2) Can't exactly think that Pitch would sit around doing nothing while Jack was with Elsa for all those years. Sooooooo...where else to bring him than the Southern Isles with an equally evil prince? 83

3) I'm assuming that there's a lull in the story between when Elsa was captured and when Anna got to Hans. In that time, this is when this meeting happened. XD

Pairing: JackxElsa / Jelsa

Okay, it looks like I was wrong. My bunnies seriously love getting to work on all this. :))

So here's Part 11 with more of a villain focus. ^^

Apologizing for those who were expecting Jack or Elsa to come in again, but yeah. I had to get this out of the way first because it bothered me. ^^;

Let's all hope then that my bunnies will allow for them to return in the next part. At least, I'm hoping. They're very volatile right now. ^^;

This is Part 11 of my "The Rise of the Frozen Guardians" series. Name is subject to change, but currently out of ideas right now. ._.

Hans didn't kill Elsa because he has to seem like a kind person in front of the citizens and especially Anna. If he outright killed Elsa then he would lose their trust and Anna would call off the engagement, which would prevent him from becoming King. Everything Hans does is for that purpose.

Consider though that Elsa created Marshmallow to ward off people -- and may have possibly killed them, given the sheer power it had. Consider that Elsa was close to killing two men that attacked her, regardless if it were in self-defense. Both times were good justification that the queen was indeed a "monster" and would've given Hans an excuse to kill her then and there. With her out of the way, he would've comforted Anna, being the only person she would've had left in the world and probably eventually married her. Disney didn't do this because they had to move the storyline along and have the happy ending segue. If Hans was as heartless as he seemed, it would've come earlier, regardless. But given that it's a Disney movie, of course they moved it like that.

I placed this here because I wanted to give my own reason for the act to drag on, placing the emphasis on Elsa being kept alive, and took into consideration the character's thought patterns plus the inclusion of Pitch, so this is simply my take and what I deduced from how they were.

Maybe to the citizens, but I doubt Anna would ever consider Elsa a monster, and Hans needs her support more than any one else's, therefore, he postpones killing Elsa in order to make sure Anna trusts him completely.

I don't think that Anna's trust would've been an issue. She's smitten with him that she said yes to marrying him within their first day of meeting, remember? XD

If I recall correctly, Anna didn't know that they captured Elsa. Neither did she know that Hans went after her to search when her horse returned. After she left Elsa's ice palace, the next time she saw Elsa was when Hans tried to kill her. By this time, he had already revealed that he was evil and the trust was broken.

Given that, if anytime between point A (their last meeting) to point B (Han's murder attempt), Anna wouldn't have seen Elsa being killed if Hans chose to do so. He could've staged it as an accident and made it so that he "tried to save her" and "did all he could but it was no use". He admitted that he would've in the movie, if things didn't play out the way they did -- so it's not above his character. If this happened and Anna's heart wouldn't freeze as a result of the magic as it would disappear when Elsa died, Anna would be distraught and grieving, yes, but she'd lean on him for support, given that the reveal that he was evil wouldn't have happened. I mean, c'mon, he stayed "good" until the last moment when he was cornered with a "true love's kiss" where it would've been revealed anyway that he didn't really love her. Might as well have just told her and let her die sooner by freezing. Jackass move, yes, but it was interesting. Anyway, Elsa was all Anna  had left (or so says "Do You Want To Build a Snowman?") and without her, she had her "true love" Hans. She continued to look to him and ran to him for the "true love's kiss" so she still trusted and "loved" him. Hence the trust isn't really an issue at all. ^^

Actually, another interesting theory to consider is if Hans killed Elsa and stopped the storm in that way but Anna's heart stayed frozen, it would've been his happy ending, seeing as the queen was dead, the only heir was dying and he could still say that "they said their marriage vows before she died". He'd be the King and have his moment. XD

I think that he didn't kill Elsa because Anna wasn't back yet, so he wanted to keep his options open. If Anna never returned, then he could comfort Elsa and then convince her to marry him, therefore becoming king.

I am loving this entire story! I love the build of it and how you keep everyone marvellously in character! It is seriously one of the best fanfics I've read in a long time! :heart:

Just one teensy-weensy correction... "former-queen-to-be" is a bizarre word choice... "soon-to-be-late-queen" would make more sense imho. Cheers! :D
