Just like her by ymirr-d74z4a0

Cold & Dark (also known as Frigid DarknessPitlsa, and Elitch, not to be confused with BlackIce) is the name of the pairing between Elsa from Frozen and Pitch Black from Rise of the Guardians. The pairing can be considered an extension of Rise of the Frozen Guardians and Rise of the Brave Tangled Frozen Dragons. Their romantic pairing is not as popular as many of the RotBTD pairings, although it does have many loyal fans.

Relationship Overview

Much like BlackIce, Pitch and Elsa's relationship is built on the shared loneliness between the two. Pitch becomes a monster - filled with darkness, hooked on the fear and misery of others, weak and hated by everybody - while Elsa's powers leave her alienated from her sister and eventually her entire kingdom, unable to control the magic she was born with. Furthermore, the two both sacrificed everything for their family. In his past life as Kozmotis Pitchiner, Pitch had a beloved daughter that he'd do anything to protect. And when guarding a prison containing Fearlings, they tricked him into believing his daughter was trapped with them; thus, setting the Fearlings free and allowing them to consume him. Elsa also selflessly put her sister's safety above all things, choosing to take a role that easily can be misinterpreted as villainous - ignoring, pushing away and even banishing her. Whether or not the relationship is genuine or simply a plot to use Elsa's powers and nothing else differs from story to story. Some fans like to imagine that Elsa resembles Pitch's wife that died before he was consumed by the darkness.

This usually takes place in a continuity after the events of Rise of the Guardians, Jack's rejection of Pitch's offer cementing them as enemies, putting Elsa against Jack as an antithesis to Jelsa.

In addition, sometimes, pertaining to Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons, Astrid Hofferson, from How to Train Your Dragon, is made out to be their daughter.
