"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.
 



"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."

Why I Love It (And Why You Should Watch It)

There have been countless adaptations of the classic fairytale Cinderella, but this is one of my favorites; probably because it’s so unlike the others. Gone is the Cinderella of angelic goodness and endless forbearance. This ‘Ella’ is shaped by the abusive home she was raised in, becoming sharp-tongued, wild, and unrefined;, a deviation from the traditional story that I find fantastically intriguing. Not only does she rebel against the traditional Cinderella characterization with her tomboy, rough-around-the-edges personality, but she rebels against the traditional physical personification of the classic fairy tale heroine as well. Cinderella is usually portrayed as fair-haired and feminine; here she is dark-haired with a boy-short cut (which she confesses to having cut off in a fit of anger) and hidden behind soot-stains.

There are many other aspects of the movie to enjoy. The fairy-godmother is a nutty old spinster who steals from the villager ladies, Cinderella wears one of the most opulent ball-gowns of all time, and there are beautiful ballet sequences interwoven throughout the film..

9 Heroines - [Cinderella]

She promised her godmother to leave the ball before midnight; and then drove away, scarcely able to contain herself for joy. The king’s son, who was told that a great princess, whom nobody knew, had arrived, ran out to receive her. He gave her his hand as she alighted from the coach, and led her into the hall, among all the company. There was immediately a profound silence. Everyone stopped dancing, and the violins ceased to play, so entranced was everyone with the singular beauties of the unknown newcomer.

fangirl challenge [2/7 sceneries] the woods in drei haselnüsse für aschenbrödel (three wishes for cinderella)



tinypixy:

”[…] In the evening when she had worked till she was weary she had no bed to go to, but had to sleep by the hearth in the cinders. And as on that account she always looked dusty and dirty, they called her Cinderella. […] It happened, however, that the king gave orders for a festival which was to last three days, and to which all the beautiful young girls in the country were invited, in order that his son might choose himself a bride. […] As, however, Cinderella went on asking, the step-mother said at last, “I have emptied a dish of lentils into the ashes for you, if you have picked them out again in two hours, you shall go with us.”

The maiden went through the back-door into the garden, and called, “You tame pigeons, you turtle-doves, and all you birds beneath the sky, come and help me to pick 

      the good into the pot,
      the bad into the crop.”

[…] But the step-mother said, “All this will not help. You cannot go with us, for you have no clothes and can not dance. We should be ashamed of you.” On this she turned her back on Cinderella, and hurried away with her two proud daughters. As no one was now at home, Cinderella went to her mother’s grave beneath the hazel-tree, and cried,

      "Shiver and quiver, little tree,
       Silver and gold throw down over me.”
