a lot of love,
a lot of blood




"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.

FAIRY TALES MEME  »  CINDERELLA by Brothers Grimm

 ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a widower who remarried. His second wife was ill-natured, and she had two daughters who were just as unpleasant as their mother. The man had a beautiful, gentle daughter of his own, and she was soon to become the servant of her evil step-mother and step-sisters. They made her do all the chores around the house, and she was named Cinderella, after the cinders she swept out of the fireplace. (Full Summary Here)

FAIRYTALE MEME: 10 Adaptations - [1/10]  Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella
  “Am I making believe I see in you a man too perfect to be really true?
   Do I want you because you’re wonderful?
   Or are you wonderful because I want you?”



"If magic was present, it moved under the skin of the world, beneath the ability of human eyes to catch sight of it."

Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, Gregory Maguire (via quotes-for-reference)

"He wants to draw a marble statue, not a person!" cries Iris.
“Then be marble for him, you fool,” says Margarethe. “Be bronze if he wants it; be glass; be oak. Be what he wants, or we go hungry.”
“He wants beauty,” says Iris, rubbing her nose. “He has a hound, and he wants beauty.”
Margarethe’s expression is blank. At last she says, “Then be beauty. Make-believe it."

— Gregory Maguire, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister



"In the lives of children, pumpkins can turn into coaches, mice and rats into human beings. When we grow up, we learn that it’s far more common for human beings to turn into rats."

— Gregory Maguire, Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (via liabilititties)
