So, funny thing, after my car accident, I had trouble remembering *very* specific things. Like the word “oubliette”. So I kept texting people, “what’s the name of the hole you put people in to forget about them???”. Luckily, one of my friends was a big enough nerd that they knew the word I’d forgotten.

#sarah the mythchild kingslayer story-swallower #her will is as strong as yours and her eyes can be so cruel #and when she says her kingdom is as great as his it is because this is her kingdom #he is the raptor at her wrist and flies (takes; frightens; reorders time) at her word #she is the queen who makes herself; if persephone had no hades to offer her the pomegranate #she would have had to invent him #now come away with me child; to the water and the wild #find yourself on the edges of mazes and dreamscapes #and choose and choose and choose #have choices taken from you and choose anyway #(this is how women are made; in choosing)
#this is what i wanted this is what i needed this is what i firmly believe happened after the end of the film #the object becoming aware and turning her objectification into power; wielding it like a weapon #and taking a kingdom through the heart and soul of its ruler #forever wroth that i can never find a story about being stolen away by the unseelie court that has a satisfactorily dark and vicious tran… #transformative ending #howl’s moving castle the book has the structure but not the darkness (i love it anyway) #the bitterbynde trilogy has the queenship but at the cost of the brutality #(but i love it anyway) #labyrinth #someday we may see a woman king #those imperial disimpassion’d eyes #the queen of the unseelie court in all her variations #she hears voices from under the earth
this is amazing and REALLY HOT on the same level that extraspatial Death-figures calling intraspatial powers who have no control over them “your majesty” and the like
I just noticed Sarah is holding Jareth’s hand around her waist. I ship them so hard it hurts.
Jim, you’re awesome too.
Oh my god, I want this on my wall.
Watched part of this Friday night. Still have “Magic Dance” stuck in my head.
(Probably my favorite Labyrinth fan art ever.)
Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth
