#NaNoPoblano2022 Day 3
Welcome to Part 3 of “Andrea’s Multiverse”! Sorry it took long as I had been kind of sick for a time and was also waiting for something. Anyway, last time, you got acquainted with top fan favorites Agent Red and The Fairie that were created by TikTok/YouTube content creator Andrea So. Now, meet the other three that fans love to see!
I’m not gonna lie. I wonder if these three women all had daddy issues. There’s the Mafia Boss’s Daughter (MBD), the Pirate King’s Daughter (PKD), then The Princess, obviously daughter to a king.
It makes sense, though. It emphasizes that each of them lives in a “man’s world” where the powers-that-be and their minions are generally male. It does not matter that being children of the big guys gave them certain privileges to go up the ladder. Common ladies would have a hard time even achieving one step of that ladder. The opportunity is there and MBD, PKD, and the Princess have done well taking it.
They work hard proving that they can get their jobs done and do them better than anyone.
The Mafia Boss’s Daughter, Danger Woman
Let’s first get this out of the way. There are people that are probably not aware that the real Mafia is an actual international group doing organized crime. They look cool on TikTok, except they are anything but. Leave it to Hollywood to romanticize everything, including the Mafia.
That said, fiction is fiction — any character can have an interesting story, even a Mafia boss’s daughter. So, moving on…
Viewers first see MBD as the tough daughter of the Boss. “Tough” is an understatement as her father trained her hard as their hitman. She is their version of Agent Red, so to speak. If they are to fight each other (hopefully not), MBD will not go down easily, if at all (sorry, Red). She is combat-trained and a sharp-shooter herself, which shuts up every guy who questions her skills. She hates a lot of things, but misogyny is definitely one of her biggest pet peeves. Avoid triggering her at all costs!
It is not clear why her father trusts her to get things done. I do take it that she’s probably proven herself to him time and again. At some point, she even becomes the boss, taking over the “business”. I imagined her as a solo child. In one POV, however, she has brothers who have tried to kill her to get the power but failed. In another, she has a little sister. They all could still very well be part of her storyline.
The one thing that anyone should remember about MBD is she is bossy. And that comes with a very quick, very bad temper. That is also why she seems to be constantly annoyed. And when she doesn’t, well, it can be quite tricky guessing what mood she’s really in.
That’s why you don’t mess with this MBD.
In the multiverse she shares with the four women, I assume that she is either a different MBD than the one above, or she has mellowed down and probably left the Mafia (at least, the organization, not her family). Because it’s more interesting, I choose the latter.
She is the way she is because being female, she always had to be tough to prove her worth to her father. That meant doing things that didn’t seem to faze her (except they did, internally). Nobody saw it coming but the last straw was the last mission where she had to keep a child distracted during his parent’s execution. She always made it a point that this was done and took it upon herself to do it.
She left and that was the end of her Mafia career. She was still human….
Okay, I made that whole scenario up about her leaving, ha ha. But you have to admit, it’s a good POV. And Andrea’s wonderful acting makes it believable. The forced smile, the quick side glance, especially the subtle flinch at the end–they were everything that made it powerful. The video, so far, has been the saddest one I’ve seen from Andrea. The more I thought about it, the more I got sad the first day I saw it. I honestly stopped watching videos a little bit to pull myself together. This is how I am, okay?
Going back to this version of MBD, it’s funny the way that she usually looks annoyed at something and blurts out a demanding “WHAT?!!!” But unlike the serious Agent Red, MBD is more social and expressive. If it is not about work, MBD doesn’t hide her feelings.
She smiles easily when something amuses her, which sometimes make men actually like her. She adores her kid sister the most in the family and shows it in her own way. She gets pranked and tries not shoot you (well, sometimes). She enjoys dancing in public. That is, unless it affects her reputation or authority. Like losing in a bet and being made to accept defeat (however ungraciously) by dancing silly in front of everyone.
She flirts when she likes you. She allows herself to fall in love and is able to forgive easier (but not without letting you be thankful for it). She can be jealous but handles it more “maturely” now. Well, that’s a big jump from the old MBD who had drastic ways to deal with jealousy and heartbreak.
Lastly, it is surprising that she now actually makes friends outside the Mafia even if these friends sometimes frustrate her.
Surprisingly, like Red, MBD feels closest to Faerie, it seems. She laughs at Faerie’s craziness. They’ve become partners in crime, too, so to speak. MBD gamely joins The Faerie in doing the dancing trends. They are especially naughty when playing pranks on people. Who would think that this is the old MBD?
Perhaps, it’s the maternal — or big sis — instinct that she naturally feels, something she tried to hide before especially coming from her background. That is why when Faerie’s in trouble, bullies may find themselves in double trouble.
If you find yourself often confused between Red and MBD, you are not alone. This happens a lot. They have similar tastes in clothes: the cuts, the dark colors, the more professional look. They present themselves as professionals. Lately, though, Red wears more leather and gloves. MBD wears more feminine cuts and less blazers. There is one top that they both love to wear, though, you may have noticed. The Princess wore it once, too. I’ll leave it to you to find out which one.
Red’s very red lipstick should set them apart, except sometimes, MBD likes it very red as well. So to not be confused, look for the “clues” I mentioned. Check that previous clip above, too. The best thing is to read the POV descriptions first to avoid/lessen the confusion.
Oh, and fun fact: MBD was the OG bad*ss before Red came along. People wanted more non-common characters like The Princess. Andrea came up with MBD. I know MBD came from a TikTok challenge/trend, but Andrea took her to the next level. So, I apologize if this feature on MBD is long. MBD deserves the tribute.
“Belle” said that the new type of role fits Andrea well, aside from The Princess. Andrea promised to come up with more POVs. We now know she did.
The Mysterious Pirate King’s Daughter
Among the five, PKD is the character with the least airtime, sadly. There’s probably a lot of POVs that can be done with her, full of adventure and fantasy. Think of Jack Sparrow. (Her father is not necessarily him, okay? And no, not “Straw Hat” Luffy either!) Aaaaarrr! Matey!
I think, and anyone can correct me on this, PKD was created when the Wellerman trend or challenge blew up. That is why most of her videos involve the song.
Legend has it that The Pirate King used to sing the sea shanty Soon May the Wellerman Come to his little daughter. It’s a song that only pirates know and that was the last song he sang to her before she was abducted and disappeared. The king had been looking for her eversince. He hoped that one day, she’d hear the song and come back to him. Until that day finally came.
We don’t know what happens next. How does the reunion go? Does he recognize his little girl immediately? Does she tell him who raised her and how her life has been (she seems to have snatched that little pouch from somebody)? Does he find out who abducted her?…So many interesting backstories to consider.
I guess, if PKD has any daddy issues, it would be with the one who raised her. Her own dad would have just showered her with love and affection after finding her again. But of course, inheriting his position and everything was probably met with a lot of protests, if not silent indignation, from the men. PKD was not one to be intimidated, though.
She’s had a rough life, I suppose, and learned how best to cope. For sure, the king had her trained as well so she could be captain of the ship someday. She couldn’t be a great pirate queen without proving herself in perilous quests. She passed with flying colors. Whatever she lacks in physical skills, if any, she makes up with cleverness and street smarts. She met the evil troll that tried to trick The Faerie and, right from the start, you’d know she really wasn’t having it.
And now, she’s acquainted with equally powerful women. She socializes with them from time to time. There was that time they went clubbing (they couldn’t make her dance) using fake names and pretending to be rich neighbors driving the same fancy car model. Or that time she went strolling through the woods with MBD and The Faerie. Or that time the women auditioned for a singing role. Other than those few times, however, her friends have no idea where she is or what she’s doing. Could she be out on the sea commandeering a ship she and her men have captured?
She doesn’t really tell her friends much. They don’t even know if she has any kind of lovelife. We do know of that time only one guy could make her melt like a puddle. Are they still in a relationship? Were they ever? Maybe. We don’t “see” him again. Sometimes, she misses her chance, too, like the time she was at the fair and blew off someone but it backfired. He asked for her name and she acted like a snob joking about — of all things — thieves! She also gave in to temptation once and used black magic. She may have freed the guy, though. It could’ve been that one guy we mentioned. PKD does learn her lessons.
She definitely has a specific look that sets her apart. The dresses and especially that hairpiece suits her. Come to think of it, though, other than white and black dresses, we never see her wear anything else that’s of a fancier color. PKD has never really dressed up! I guess being a pirate princess does not equate to living a fancier lifestyle. That’s why she’s a pirate. But what they do with the stuff they steal, we might never know.
[Ed. (October 16) A collab just went live starring Andrea and actress Eliana Ghen (@elianaghen) and guess which multiverse lady Andrea is playing. Someone is getting more attention that she deserves 🙂 I hope it’s a series. I’m excited! WATCH IT!!! MORE UPDATE: She’s been showing more frequently these days in multiverse videos. The only thing I was waiting for was to finally see her dance…and she finally danced!]
Her Highness, The Princess
The Princess doesn’t really need introductions. Her character is the easiest to understand and she’s been around practically eversince Andrea’s POVs started.
The Princess seems kind of a spoiled brat, always getting what she wants. She loves to socialize and party, which could be quite annoying to her bodyguards. It is especially challenging when she sneaks out without telling anyone. As a public figure, she is easily recognizable and considered a celebrity. Therefore, she could be easy target for robbery, abduction, or worse. She was, in fact, easily kidnapped once from her own home!
She has it all: beauty, money, and fame. However, we’ve all heard it before, that a royalty’s life is not all rosy. There are a lot of things The Princess resents about her life. For one, she is forced to act like the perfect princess everyone wants her to be. So getting drunk and asking a random guy for a souvenir kiss isn’t something her royal family would be proud of (especially since he turns out to be not just some random guy).
Truthfully, The Princess is more afraid to become what princesses often become, which is forced into a marriage she doesn’t want, sworn to obey a man in a loveless union. It would be more unfortunate if she ends up with the worse kind of prince. This could be a big blow for she is a true romantic.
That royal heart always has a mind of its own. Meanwhile, she also captures several hearts along the way,
Among the five ladies in the multiverse, it’s The Princess that has fallen in love and gotten her heart broken the most. Romance seems to be either her luck or curse, her victory or downfall. We’ve seen her through good and bad times. We’ve seen her cry not just a few times.
Not that she hadn’t avoided love. She tried to be cold and distant, even rude and annoying. But she fell–and falls–anyway, and often breaks her heart in the process. It’s always with the wrong person — the rebel who betrays her trust, the prince from the rival kingdom, the commoner whom her father thinks will never be good enough, even the duke with a very big, deal-breaking secret. Currently, The Princess seems to have an on-going “thing” with her bodyguard who’s fallen head over heels in love with her. They both believe there is no future for them, sadly.
She did meet Prince Charming years ago. Perhaps, she’ll meet him again someday. It was probably not the right time for them.
While true and everlasting love is elusive, however, no one makes The Princess feel more sad, lonely, vulnerable, and unsafe than her own family.
They don’t see The Princess for what she is: a real person with feelings and a need to feel loved by those around her. Rather than the privileged brat everyone has made her out to be, she is a misunderstood soul capable of greater things. Except she is seen but never really heard. She hates being ignored for her views due to her gender. The Princess is actually smart and good with strategies, if only the King hears her opinions and ideas.
She feels most alienated at home. Her brothers do not respect her — they only see her as an obstacle towards attaining the crown. Her own mother isn’t warm to her (probably because she is the biggest reminder of a loveless marriage) so they do not get along. For the longest time, she was made to feel like a monster. Lastly, her father doesn’t trust her with royal responsibilities because she is a woman. He doesn’t care, doesn’t believe to see if she has potentials to rule a kingdom. He’ll rather that his eldest child stays as the perfect little princess to be married off to a prince one day. He’ll pass the crown to the one next in line to her, his eldest son.
What they fail to expect is for her to find her inner strength, though. Eventually, The Princess is able to break the chain of sexist traditions and succeeds in becoming Her Majesty, The Queen.
In Andrea’s Multiverse, The CEO’s Daughter and The President’s Dughter are variants of The Princess. However, The Queen is The Princess’s leveled-up variant. She is the only character that has an older version.
Of course, this do not sit well with her brothers. They do everything, including wage war against her, to overthrow her. In the end, they bow down to the first female ruler of the kingdom. It is The Queen, formerly known as The Princess, that bows to no one! She may not know how to fight in combat, but her strength lies in her ability to be a surprisingly wise, great, and kind leader, not easily swayed or threatened by anyone, especially not by treacherous “allies”.
Often underestimated but always victorious, The Queen rules her kingdom well with courage, smarts, and maturity. Right now, it is her people to whom she offers her true love. (Just remember, these are POVs that use various audios, so she maybe Queen of England now, Queen of Scotland some other time.As long as she rules a kingdom…)
Old habits die hard, though. If she can’t have something, she’ll make sure to have it nonetheless if she deems it necessary. Ask The Faerie who (un)fortunately met The Queen once.
Poor Faerie, The Queen made her cry even more, ha ha!!! But, at least, The Queen’s heart is in the right place. Finally.
There you have it! You’ve met all of the five most-loved characters (six, if we count the older variant) of The Andweaverse (that’s what Andrea calls it now). I think of them as The Spice Girls of the Multiverse! The Faerie is Baby Spice (DUH!). Agent Red is Sporty Spice, strong and dependable. MBD is Scary Spice ’cause, well, she is scary. The Princess is Posh Spice — Hello? She’s so regal! PKD is Ginger Spice, by default (sorry). She does add her own particular spice to the group.
Watch out for the conclusion of this feature! But let us end this part with an epic Andweaverse concert! See if you can spot or name all who are featured in this video (I’ll add after the vid, but no cheating!!!}
