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.

little mermaid, swim back home by bernice s. castro (x)

this is what i
didn’t say
when you shut the
door
from without:
i sewed my legs
together to
come back
to sea.



The Little Mermaid  {Den lille havfrue}

”Why have not we an immortal soul?” asked the little mermaid mournfully. “I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day, and to have the hope of knowing the happiness of that glorious world above the stars.” “You must not think of that,” said the old woman; “we feel ourselves to be much happier and much better off than human beings.” “So I shall die,” said the little mermaid, “and as the foam of the sea I shall be driven about never again to hear the music of the waves, or to see the pretty flowers nor the red sun. ”

FAIRYTALE MEME:9 Heroines - [2/9] The Little Mermaid   “The youngest and loveliest of them all, also had a beautiful voice, and when she sang, the fishes flocked from all over the sea to listen to her. The shells gaped wide, showing their pearls and even the jellyfish stopped to listen. The young mermaid often sang, and each time, she would gaze upwards, seeking the faint sunlight that scarcely managed to filter down into the depths.    ‘Oh, how I’d love to go up there and at last see the sky, which everyone says is so pretty, and hear the voices of humans and smell the scent of the flowers’!”

Dark Fairytale Princesses - Ariel, the little Mermaid
She marks her victims with salty kisses, lips tasting of water and beauty, a deceit to hide the thirst for human blood and bones. The sea bends to her will and the tides and waves will lull her song like a hook, a lure for fishermen and helpless sailors which are mesmerized, the melody clouding their eyes and minds. She dallies with her pray, let them follow her in the deepest dark of the sea, gives them watery kisses and hot breath to entice them to her cave where she claws her nails and fingers deep in the flesh, devouring it to the bones but nothing will ever appease her hunger.

Fairytales reimagined

↳ The Little Mermaid set in Japan
Nothing gave the youngest princess such pleasure as to hear about the world of human beings up above them. Her old grandmother had to tell her all she knew about ships and cities, and of people and animals. What seemed nicest of all to her was that up on land the flowers were fragrant, for those at the bottom of the sea had no scent.

FAIRY TALES MEME  » THE LITTLE MERMAID by hans christian andersen

THE LITTLE MERMAID asks her grandmother if humans can live forever if they could breathe under water. The grandmother explains that humans have a much shorter lifespan than merfolks’ 300 years, but that when mermaids die they turn to sea foam and cease to exist, while humans have an eternal soul that lives on in Heaven. The Little Mermaid, longing for the prince and an eternal soul, eventually visits the Sea Witch, who sells her a potion that gives her legs in exchange for her tongue (as the Little Mermaid has the most enchanting and beautiful voice in the world). The Sea Witch warns, however, that once she becomes a human, she will never be able to return to the sea. Drinking the potion will make her feel as if a sword is being passed through her, yet when she recovers she will have two beautiful legs, and will be able to dance like no human has ever danced before. However, it will constantly feel like she is walking on sharp knives. As a result, her feet bleed most terribly. In addition, she will only obtain a soul if she finds true love’s kiss and if the prince loves her and marries her, for then a part of his soul will flow into her. Otherwise, at dawn on the first day after he marries another woman, the Little Mermaid will die brokenhearted and disintegrate into sea foam. [Full Summary Here]

FAIRYTALE MEME:7 Villains - [3/7] Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid   “Big fat eels played in the mud, showing their ugly yellow stomachs. Here the witch had built her house out of the bones of drowned sailors, and there she sat letting a big ugly toad eat out of her mouth, as human beings sometimes let a canary eat sugar candy out of theirs. The ugly eels she called her little chickens, and held them close to her spongy chest.   ‘I know what you want,’ she cackled. ‘And it is stupid of you. But you shall have your wish, for it will bring you misery, little princess.’ ”
