Haha, what a coincidence! I'm writing a fanfic and this is exactly what happens in one of the scenes! Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks Aurora could be an archer (cue: nikkibelle18.deviantart.com/ar…
No offense to either character, but those poor kids didn't have much to do besides playing Romeo and Juliet. That made them secondary characters to the three fairies and Maleficent, which didn't work since they were supposed to be the MAIN characters.
I know, they don't get anything to do that develops them, character wise, as little more than pretty faces and hopeless romantics. If there's more to their characters, we don't get to see it. Hopefully we'll get to see some more development in the live-action reboot they're doing (even if it's SUPPOSED to be about Maleficent).
Although, on the other hand, their lack of character development in the movie provides a lot of opportunities and inspiration for fanfic writers. Although challenging, you can find some pretty nice fanfic out there!
