*The rest of this will not rhyme, fortunately*

Flynn Rider encountered the princess after seeing her advertisement,


feigning a sickness but the truth was that he recognized her as the princess. After she healed him, and Mother Gothel went on errands, he returned. He told Rapunzel how interested he was in her hair, and she laughed at his curiosity. The two talked for hours until he asked her if she ever saw the world, which is when she revealed that she had once and it was a terrible experience. He would spend the next couple of days coming when Mother Gothel would leave, keeping Rapunzel company until one day, he decided he would convince her to leave her tower. Although it took much pleading she agreed, much to her chargin. However, going into the real world turned out to be more amazing than she could have ever imagined; she sang with strangers, went into the Kingdom and saw all it had to offer! She was so amazed that she real world was nothing like she had experienced the first time around, she couldn’t help but wonder if this is what she had missing her entire life.

That day, before returning to her tower, Flynn decided to tell her the truth about who she was. Rapunzel felt so betrayed, she couldn’t believed he lied to her and now he was fabricating stories to get her hopes up about some long lost princess. She climbed back into the tower, never wanting to see him again. She cried in the arms of Mother Gothel, then stayed in her room for days, not wanting to anyone, especially Flynn after what he had done. One day, he brings her a flag with the town symbol, a flower that once represented the long lost princess, vowing he would never bother her again. Moments later, as she stared at the flag, it was as though all her memories came back at once,¬†she¬† was the long lost princess! But what did this mean? What was she to do, leave the entire life she had created for herself? She was so lost.

But with Flynn and Mother Gothel at her side, she knew she wouldn’t be able to forget this. She belonged somewhere. While she loved Mother Gothel, she knew she could not sacrifice her happiness for anyone any longer, she could not stay locked up in the tower because she had a home, somewhere she belonged. Mother Gothel said her good-bye’s to Rapunzel, feeling responsible for keeping her from her family and she moved far far away. Rapunzel was reunited with her family, there were no questions because she was the spitting image of her mother. ¬†The entire town celebrated after it was announced everywhere! Flynn was praised by the family for bringing her back, and completing the royal family once more.


..And they all lived happily ever after!
