"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.

faces for fairy tale ladies → Amanda Seyfried as Bluebeard’s Wife

As soon as they returned home, the marriage was concluded. About a month afterward, Bluebeard told his wife that he was obliged to take a country journey for six weeks at least, about affairs of very great consequence, desiring her to divert herself in his absence, to send for her friends and acquaintances, to carry them into the country, if she pleased, and to make good cheer wherever she was.
"Here," said he, "are the keys of the two great wardrobes, wherein I have my best furniture; these are of my silver and gold plate, which is not every day in use; these open my strong boxes, which hold my money, both gold and silver; these my caskets of jewels; and this is the master-key to all my apartments. But for this little one here, it is the key of the closet at the end of the great gallery on the ground floor. Open them all; go into all and every one of them, except that little closet, which I forbid you, and forbid it in such a manner that, if you happen to open it, there’s nothing but what you may expect from my just anger and resentment."

She doesn’t like secrets. Sealed rooms, locked doors, untold truths; things that are kept from her. You cannot have control over something you don’t know, so a secret is a weakness. A secret mines your foundations; it’s a black space where anything could be, and it’s the unknownness that makes it threatening and frightful, because a thing you don’t know is everything at the same time. Maybe this secret has sharpt teeth and claws and haunts the castle at night, or maybe it’s nothing at all, but as long as she doesn’t know it is both. And one single look won’t hurt, will it? He’ll never know. She holds the key in her hands—the key that will soon be stained with blood she won’t be able to get rid of, but she doesn’t know yet—as she approaches the room cautiously, as if trying to catch it by surprise. One single look won’t hurt. She will peek just once and then lock the door again, and he’ll never know that she knows his secret.
