Greetings, I am Dragonboy6491 (you can address me as Dragonboy or Bill), and I am a bureaucrat and administrator on the Frozen Wiki. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to message me on my wall and I will get back to you as soon as possible! If you wish to message me privately, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why I am on this Wiki
So I watched Frozen some time after Christmas (December 28, 2013, if you want to be precise), and I immediately fell in love with it. The characters, the music, the visuals, the themes ... it was all superb. Above all else, Frozen resonated with me due to its relatability. We all can find sympathy with Anna and Elsa because we'd do anything for those we care about. By all means, this wasn't Disney's first film about love triumphing against all odds, but in my eyes, it was unsurpassed when it came to actually drawing viewers into the story, allowing for an emotional investment that just isn't seen with most films these days. It has a little bit to offer for everyone in terms of genre: comedy, epic adventure, fantasy, romance, family. I could type pages about my love for Frozen but I'll spare you the details; that being said, if you wish to discuss the film with me, feel free to message me.
But watching the film over and over, listening to the soundtrack ... it just wasn't enough for me. Eventually, I found myself here and have since dedicated my time to building an online resource as a way to be even closer to the film; my goal was to improve my own knowledge of the film in the process. I started off as a regular user who didn't have a clue what he was doing, but with time and dedication, I became a rollback user and, eventually, an administrator.
Currently, I'm trying to whip this Wiki into shape by introducing proper editing protocols with the Manual of Style (MoS). Hopefully, this will create a more encyclopedic experience for everyone. The Elsa dolls are a plus XD

However, I'm still learning the ropes and so feel free to correct any mistakes I make! I'm especially useless with coding, so if you need assistance in that area, I'm afraid I won't be able to help much.
I'm currently a junior attending New York University, studying biology at the College of Arts and Science. That being said, I don't have the best English background, so if my grammar/vocabulary is atrocious, I apologize in advance. Due to my objective focus on science, I also do not have the best interpretive skills, so if you're wanting an insightful discussion about the film, I apologize if my replies lack the depth you may be seeking.
Aside from Frozen, I'm mostly a hardcore nerd who likes his science fiction, comics, and video games. I'm also very fond of sitcoms, my favorite being Seinfeld. I'm not particularly well-read, so if you're looking to discuss about literature outside of fantasy novels like Harry Potter, well you're out of luck. Frozen soundtrack aside, I don't really have a wide variety of musical tastes, choosing instead to focus on select pieces that I find particularly evocative.
| ||This user fell in love with Frozen because of its balance between emotional content and comedy. It also supplemented good storytelling with evocative music and amazing visuals.|
| ||This user admires Elsa because of the selfless sacrifices she made to protect her family. Her struggle to accept herself also made her an incredibly complex character.|
| ||This user thinks we all need someone like Anna in our lives because her faith and optimism are inspiring.|
| ||This user loves Olaf because his childlike innocence allows him to be a funny, yet remarkably poignant character.|
| ||This user nearly cheered in the theater when Kristoff made the decision to return to Anna upon seeing the blizzard. Truly a valiant, pungent reindeer king.|
| ||This user likes Sven because of his dog-like mannerisms. His love for Kristoff really gives meaning to the phrase, "man's best friend".|
| ||This user grudgingly admires Hans because his vast intelligence, manipulative duplicity, and greedy aspirations made for arguably one of the most sinister villains of all time. And no ... you did not see it coming.|
| ||This user is going to see Cinderella for Frozen Fever ... well played, Disney.|
Here are two particularly good videos that do a great job exploring the themes of the film and presenting them in a clear, concise manner:
- Focuses on Elsa's detachment from others and the personal sacrifices she's endured to keep everyone safe.
- Focuses on the film's climax and Olaf's wisdom: "Love is putting someone else's needs before yours."

I do not have a huge presence on other Wikis; instead, I elect mostly to stick to the shadows; however, the Wikis I frequent most are Assassin's Creed Wiki, Avatar Wiki, Clash of Clans Wiki, Disney Wiki, Marvel Comics Database, and Wookieepedia.
