It's been a few years now since the creators of Once Upon A Time visited the world of Frozen. Some loved what they got and some didn't. But fans of both franchises had been dying for such a crossover to occur from the moment each became pop culture icons.
Before they were realized on screen fan fiction authors have been trying to cross pollinate the two worlds and this is easily one of the best, if not the best. Written before Anna and Elsa were included on the show this story, titled Forever Frozen and written by author Cryoshade, realizes the two sisters as friends in Storybrooke who share a run down "apartment" while trying to make rent before Mr. Gold tosses them out on the streets. Elsa is an artist who sells her works hoping to earn enough to pay their bills while Anna is more carefree and has problems holding down a job. Other members of the cast show up in different guises much to the delight of fans. The chapters of this wonderful story even play out like episodes of the series during the fabulous first season.
Cryoshade's writing style is outstanding and I consider it to be the gold standard for other authors. The writing is eloquent, provides crisp details, packs lots of emotion and somehow manages to cover lots of territory in chapters that are just the right length without feeling crowded. Characterizations are spot on for every major character and never once will the reader get thrown out of the narrative or feel as if the author is cheating. This is a rare gem of a story that deserves to be read, even if you aren't a fan of either franchise.
But if you do enjoy Frozen and Once Upon A Time this is a fan fiction you cannot miss.
It was a fun season - for sure. I enjoyed the crossover, though needed to catch up quickly. I haven't seen Frozen (No judging please It's not that I don't want to see it, I just haven't.). I usually enjoy Once Upon A Time - though have watched it with Netflix. I never can keep up with when it's on, etc. LOL

It's great to hear you enjoyed the crossover so much. Cryoshade is an excellent storyteller and wonderful writer. If you want to read the further adventures of Elsa and Anna in Storybrooke, Cryoshade wrote a follow up story called Forever Frozen: Star of Hope. Enjoy.
