History of the FandomEdit

It is unknown when the idea of the crossover sparked, or who started it. Rapunzel and Merida are the two newest additions to the Disney Princess Lineup, and Hiccup and Jack Frost are both beloved heroes from their respective DreamWorks movies, all CGI characters. Before the ladies were added, fans began shipping Hiccup and Jack together in their own crossover known as 'How to Train Your Guardian'. It is likely the four were matched together because they are all teenagers who had to face similar issues in their films. At the start of the films, all characters want more out of life. Jack wants to finally be seen, Merida wants to break free from her mother's strict control, Hiccup wants to be accepted by his village, and Rapunzel wants to leave her tower to see the lanterns. At times these goals seem far out of reach, but as the movies progress, the characters realizes that what they wanted might not be what they need. All four films have wonderful messages as well.

Other than "Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons", there are also other names for the fandom, such as "How to Train Your Brave Tangled Guardian", "How to Untangle Your Brave Guardian" and more prominently, "The Big Four". "Rise of the Brave Tangled Dragons" is usually shortened to "RotBTD". 

The crossover is popular on many sites, specifically Tumblr, where it seems to have originated. The fandom is young but thriving, and consists of hundreds of talented fans. Since nothing is canon, these fans have the freedom to come up with their own AUs and ideas.

    • Most of the characters are teenagers, so I don't think he'd exactly fit.. but don't let that discourage you from writing your story, it's just...
    • Hmm, maybe I could write about his children who are already teenagers.
