So recently I got a few likes on an old work of mine, A Convenient Defense and it got me curious where people were coming from so I did a google search. I’m not sure if this is the thing people are coming from but I listened to it and GOODNESS is it just about perfect. And I wanted it on my blog, yes.
Re: your two sis-ships and their penchant for snow. I don't think that snow theme is terribly coincidental. Both ships come from stories that deal with repressed emotions and/or severed emotional connections in some form; the Jungian archetype for emotion is water, hence ice and snow denotes frozen emotions. :) (btw, I ship Elsanna. LIKE BURNING. And it's all your fault. Well, you and a bit Yamino's. I haven't even seen the movie! I am so doomed.)
Haha, you make some excellent points, I guess the snowiness really isn’t coincidental. That’s pretty cool! :) (Also, glad you liked the ships. I’ve enjoyed your commentary on your reblogs. ;)
Howdy! Just one of your followers dropping a reminder that you are awesome and I'm glad I came across your work all those years ago. You come so far and I look forward to where you'll go. We may never meet face to face but I hope one day we will.
Aaaaaah thanks, Anon. This is the sweetest message.
I saw the trailer for Maleficent for the first time today, and I have to say it’s got me intrigued. It looks like there’s some real potential there for an interesting dynamic between Maleficent and Aurora. The official synopsis wasn’t quite what I expected based on the trailer. But this is the story the trailer made me think of, that I’d like to see somewhere if it’s not this film:
Maleficent has been watching Aurora her entire life (as per the trailer). Aurora doesn’t know who she is or why she’s there, but she does know that the mysterious woman in the shadows is her protector. At times when she’s been in danger, Maleficent’s magic has helped her. And so Aurora becomes obsessed, in that way secret things become obsessions because there’s no one to temper them. As she gets older she begins to believe Maleficent must love her, to protect her so. Begins to fall in love in turn. Seeing this Maleficent begins a subtle seduction, so subtle that Aurora believes she is the one drawing Maleficent out, thinks she is the one with the power in the relationship.
What she doesn’t know is that Maleficent is only protecting her until her sixteenth birthday; only saved her so that she cannot possibly escape the fate Maleficent cursed her with, even by death. Maleficent is and has always been in complete control, and Aurora won’t realize until it’s too late.
Here is an untitled thing I wrote about some OCs. It’s rough and potentially riddled with typos, although I read over it so hopefully not. If it reads as really disjointed, it’s kind of supposed to.
Pay attention to the warnings in the tags, just in case.
Some days were bad.
Laurie’s skin prickled, cold and clammy but pouring with sweat besides. Or was it? Was she imagining the chill that passed through her? Did she really shiver, or only think she did? Was there a difference?
She felt high, sick and jittery and half jonesing for a drug she had never taken. Maybe that’s what it was. A genuine physical reaction to a memory of a craving. It had to be a memory, had to. She hadn’t taken anything. Had she? No, no, Beth would never have allowed that. It’s not like she needed chemicals to fuck her up anyway.
I think especially the incest pairings that don't actually know each other for the great majority of their lives should be exempt from the stigma.
Personally, I agree, though I do not wish to tell people what to be or not be squicked over. So I think, with any potentially problematic pairing, it’s better to err with some caution and consideration.
