Philip & Aurora Fanlisting

Behind The Name

Do you remember the part in the movie where Maleficent provokes Philip by gloating about her success in capturing him and putting Aurora to sleep? If you don't, well, here's a reminder:

Oh come now Prince Philip. Why so melancholy? A wondrous future lies before you - you, the destined hero of a charming fairy tale come true. Behold - King Stefan's castle. And in yonder topmost tower, dreaming of her true love, the Princess Aurora. But see the gracious whim of fate - why, 'tis the self-same peasant maid, who won the heart of our noble prince but yesterday. She is indeed, most wondrous fair. Gold of sunshine in her hair, lips that shame the red red rose. In ageless sleep, she finds repose. The years roll by, but a hundred years to a steadfast heart, are but a day. And now, the gates of a dungeon part, and our prince is free to go his way. Off he rides, on his noble steed, a valiant figure, straight and tall! To wake his love with "loves' first kiss"! And prove that "true love" conquers all!

Well, that spiel of hers is what gave me the idea for the title of this fanlisting. Her intention was to rouse Philip to anger (she succeeded) when she said this line in the movie, but when I was trying to think of a title for the fanlisting one part of that little speech really struck a chord with me and I think it really fits them because they overcame a lot and they prove that true love does conquer all!
