"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., 23, 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.
 



"The air grew colder, more clinging, with different, worrying smells. It smelled like things dying and other things growing out of the dead. (Which is what life always smells like. But our senses are sharper when we’re afraid.)"

— Summer and Bird by Katherine Catmull (via smallmeme)

FAIRYTALE MEME: 9 Fairytales - [7/9] Snow White  “The huntsman obeyed and led her away, but when he had drawn his hunting knife and was about to pierce Snow White’s innocent heart, she began to weep, and said, ‘Oh, dear huntsman, spare my life. I shall run into the wild forest and never come home again.’”

Problems with having a really good memory for words: remembering extremely random and extremely small details about people and ending up in seriously awkward situations when they ask how you knew that and “I read it on a post you made on your blog seven years ago” sounds like a rather creepy thing to answer.

Oh, Elsa.  What are we going to do with you.

Frozen is purportedly set in the 1830’s-40’s, but I’ve been obsessed with finding a style that could marry her coronation gown with her ice gown more seamlessly; the open robes you see during the Regency era, including those being worn by Scandinavian royalty at the time, seemed a particularly apt analog for her… weird underarm-cape.  Thing.  You also see her mom wearing something very similar for something like ten years, so it’s not a huge stretch to think it could be a popular look in Arendelle.  THAT’S MY EXCUSE.

I initially designed this for her coronation, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to explore how that same silhouette might work with her ice gown as well.  Someday, theoretically, I would love to do a more literally iced-up version of her gown, but I figured the alternate colour way would be a nice middle ground to strike.

Anonymous whispered, "what do you think of the 2014 movie La Belle et la Bete?"

I liked it. It wasn’t quite what I expected (I wasn’t following things very closely and I got it in my head that it would be darker and closer in atmosphere to Cocteau’s version, but it turned out to be a lot more lighthearted instead), but I still found it really enjoyable.

(I thought it could have done with less CGI, though, expecially since some of it was a bit ehh.)

Malá Morská Víla // The Little Mermaid (Miroslava Šafránková - 1976)

Fun fact: Miroslava Šafránková who played the title role in The Little Mermaid (“Malá mořská víla”, Czechoslovakia, 1976) is a younger sister of Libuše Šafránková aka Cinderella from Three Wishes for Cinderella (“Tři oříšky pro Popelku”, Czechoslovakia, 1973). The Little Mermaid film took advantage of their similar appearance and Libuše Šafránková plays the foreign princess the prince marries in the end.

I asked my mom to cut my hair a little bit because it was starting to get ruined at the ends and she insisted on “styling” it as well but she never had a clue how curly hair works and she won’t believe me when I tell her that’s not how so now I look like a dandelion.



How about a kiss, Saumensch?
He stood waist-deep in the water for a few moments longer before climbing out and handing her the book. His pants clung to him, and he did not stop walking. In truth, I think he was afraid. Rudy Steiner was scared of the book thief’s kiss. He must have longed for it so much. He must have loved her so incredibly hard. So hard that he would never ask for her lips again and would go to his grave without them.

FAIRYTALE MEME: 6 Heroines - [2/6] The Girl from The Seven Ravens  “Thus she went on and on, and journeyed till she came to the world’s end: then she came to the sun, but the sun looked much too hot and fiery; so she ran away quickly to the moon, but the moon was cold and chilly, and said, ‘I smell flesh and blood this way!’ so she took herself away in a hurry and came to the stars, and the stars were friendly and kind to her, and each star sat upon his own little stool; but the morning-star rose up and gave her a little piece of wood, and said, ‘If you have not this little piece of wood, you cannot unlock the castle that stands on the glass mountain, and there your brothers live.’”
