when people call you “hun”
In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.
Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.
Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.
And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.
How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies
How don’t you
So, who’s going to Newcastle film and comic con, and what’re you going as?
I’m going as a personification of the Tardis on both days. :)
I’m going as two different people for the two days. Rock from Metropolis and N from Pokemon Black/White :)
Looking forward to seeing yours though <3
Since mum passed away, I haven’t had much time to really gather my thoughts. Now, in the past week or so, I have done. I miss her so much, but I have to keep going.. not just for me, but for what’s left of our family.
That’s Mum in the middle of me and d0nnatron. Way back in 2012 when we took her to Graceland <3
Rest in Peace, Mum <3
As some of you may already know, my mum had taken severely ill over the past few days. The valves she had replaced in her heart last year had become infected and it had spread throughout her bloodstream and into every major organ, causing them to fail.
Last night, she passed away after days of being on life support, and having treatment that wasn’t working..
It would have been unfair to her to keep her in that state. She would have been livid, and it just wasn’t right..
She was surrounded by all those who loved her dearly, and she wasn’t in any pain.
I’ve had a few messages of condolences and support, and I’m truly grateful to everyone who has sent such kindness this way.
At least Mum’s at peace now.
Rest in peace, Mummy Lynda. We’ll miss you and and we love you <3
