Tearsa (turrsaturrsa) Disney Princes Challenge
Complete: Whenever!
0/10


"The Prince": Any hero that approaches, lures, or kisses the heroine on a balcony. Any book where the protagonist is name "Harry".

"Prince Charming": Read a book where the hero is a duke searching for the "right girl to be his bride. Any hero named William or Mike.

Prince Phillip: Look for a hero betrothed to the heroine at an early age, or before he has even met her. Or read a book where the hero is named Phillip.

Prince Eric: Read a book where the hero is a sea captain, or is saved by the heroine, or is named Eric, or Christopher.

Prince Adam: Read a book where the hero is a shape-shifter, or arrogant, self-centered, and spoiled at the start of the book. Or named Adam, or Robby.
Struck By Lightning: The Carson Phillips Journal--although Carson was "misunderstood," he was very self centered and arrogant.

Aladdin: Read a book where the hero is - or once was - a street rat, orphan, thief, or comes from the "wrong side of the tracks". Or is named Aladdin, Scott, or Brad.

Captain John Smith: Find a book where the hero is a captain, or exploring a new world. He is one of our few blonde heroes, so you can look for one of those, too. Of course, a hero with the names of John and Mel count.

Captain Li Shang: He's is a Chinese army captain, so any of those characteristics will count, but so will any hero that is too "by-the-book," putting his duty above his feelings at the beginning. A hero named Li, or with the initials B.D, or named Donnie will also count.

Prince Naveen: Find a hero that is a playboy at the beginning of the book, or who is visiting New Orleans for Mardi Gras. I'll also allow it if he lives in a swamp. He can be named Naveen or Bruno.

Eugene Fitzherbert: Read a book where the hero is knocked unconscious by the heroine. Or one where the hero is hired by the heroine to escort or show her the way some where (as in a "road trip" story). Or where the hero is named Eugene, Flynn, or Zachary.
