having body hair annoys me but removing body hair also annoys me and also life, life annoys me
"Fuck you, that’s what it boils down to. Fuck you for sitting there and slowly making things worse. Fuck you and your spotlight and your sanctimonious faces. Fuck you all for thinking the one thing I came close to never meant anything. For oozing around it and crushing it into a bone, into a joke. One more ugly joke in a kingdom of millions. Fuck you for happening. Fuck you for me, for us, for everyone. Fuck you!"

You know what the issue is with this world? Everyone wants a magical solution to their problem, and everyone refuses to believe in magic.

↳(Enchanted) Objects: the Devil’s mirror from The Snow Queen [2/5]
One day the devil was in a very good humour because he had just finished a mirror which had this peculiar power: everything good and beautiful that was reflected in it seemed to dwindle to almost nothing at all, while everything that was worthless and ugly became most conspicuous and even uglier than ever.
If you live inside the old graveyard,
Your skin and bones get kinda hard.
You blame it on all of the ones who’ve left you.

“You were my new dream.”
My ears hear what others cannot hear; small faraway things people cannot normally see are visible to me. These senses are the fruits of a lifetime of longing, longing to be rescued, to be completed. Just as the skirt needs the wind to billow, I’m not formed by things that are of myself alone. I wear my father’s belt tied around my mother’s blouse, and shoes which are from my uncle. This is me. Just as a flower does not choose its color, we are not responsible for what we have come to be. Only once you realize this do you become free, and to become adult is to become free. // Stoker (2013)
Some say our destiny is tied to the land, as much a part of us as we are of it. Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, so that one’s destiny intertwines with many others. It’s the one thing we search for, or fight to change. Some never find it. But there are some who are led.
what to wear when…in a slovak fairy tale.
examples: blatherskite močového mechúra a jeho priatelia (bladder-blatherskite and his friends), drotári a diabol (the tinkers and the evil one), kanibali (the people-eaters, a cinderella and hansel and gretel variant)
the world of traditional slovak fairy tales is a marvelous world, full of derring-do heroes and terrible, twelve-headed dragons, clever maidens, and lucky fools…some [slovak fairy tale] heroes are larger than life, such as lomidrevo aka valibuk…like all epic heroes, lomidrevo is born under unusual circumstances…while the adventures may be familiar from other heroic tales, in the final combination, lomidrevo is a slovak hero. heroes may also be smaller than life, like janko hraško, or the person everyone least expects to be heroic, like popolvár, the youngest brother who sits on the stove all day and is ignored. of course, when we translate his name (ashboy), we realize that we are in familiar territory, for he is the male counterpart to cinderella…the bandit janosik is another hero of slovakian origin…heroes need helpers. maruška, in the story soľ nad zlato (salt over gold), depends on the help of a wise old woman, one of the closest figures to a fairy godmother in these tales. a much more common helper in slovak tales is the grey-headed old man…animals can be helpers too. perhaps the most important animal helper in slovak tales is the fairy horse [tátoš]…the heroes often receive magic objects from their helpers, including golden wands, magic rings, and sabers…the fairy tale world reflect[s] the real world of slovakia…sometimes major social rituals are reflected in the tales, as in the burial rites in krásna ibronka (pretty maid ibronka). the material culture of slovakia also works its way in: no bačas or valachs are heroes of wonder tales but wonder tale heroes like lomidrevo do often carry their characteristic tool, the valaška. most of all, local reality creeps into the details of language.
