"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 24, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.

if english isn’t your first language but you think and dream in english and sometimes have to mentally translate from english to your first language when speaking it as a consequence of your consistent exposure to the internet clap your hands

Flower gleam and glow. Let your powers shine. Make the clock reverse. Bring back what once was mine. Heal what has been hurt. Change the fates’ design. Save what has been lost. Bring back what once was mine, What once was mine…

"I was one of the insatiables. The ones you’d always find sitting closest to the screen. Why do we sit so close? Maybe it was because we wanted to receive the images first. When they were still new, still fresh. Before they cleared the hurdles of the rows behind us. Before they’d been relayed back from row to row, spectator to spectator; until worn out, secondhand, the size of a postage stamp, it returned to the projectionist’s cabin.” - The Dreamers (2003)

caterinasforzas:

what to wear when…in a sardinian fairy tale.


examples: custu istòria de paoleddu puru munninnu babborcu (the tale of paoleddu and babborcu), custu contigu de maghiàrja colombina (the story of the fairy colombina), custu pisedda biazzàre oru gattu scoberri (the wandering young gentlewoman or catskin, a donkeyskin variant)


[sardinian fairy tales are written] in the style of italian regional realism and as such, integrated sardinian customs, traditions, and folkore into its texture.
the sardinian cinderella [is called maria intaulata (mary wainscotted) from calangianus and there is a sardinian] bluebeard…some melancholy tales from sardinia do not have happy endings. 
the belief that certain persons may be transformed into an animal is present in some areas of sardinia…the most famous are on boe muliache and erchitu…the phenomenon only affects men, the transformation is only at night, and [they are] not acting voluntarily.
sardinian fairies were called janas…once upon a time, the janas lived on the hills near an abandoned nuraghe in domus de janas (the house of the fairies)…they were beautiful and have long, golden hair…they were very, very small…they wove using golden looms and they wore amazing clothes made with the textiles they created. they were beautiful textiles: silks and brocades made of gold and silver, which they washed in the river during the night and hung to dry under the moonbeams.

Fairy Tale Meme:
9 Heroines - [The Shepherd’s Daughter from Prince Lindworm]

When the feast was over, the bridegroom and bride were conducted to their apartment, with music, and torches, and a great procession. As soon as the door was shut, the Lindworm turned to her and said, “Fair maiden, shed a shift!” The shepherd’s daughter answered him, “Prince Lindworm, slough a skin!”—“No one has ever dared tell me to do that before!” said he.—“But I command you to do it now!” said she.
