John Legend’s You and I on repeat for the night
You would think that by now i would have my shit together. You would think.
it is 4 am. I just finished watching Wicked for the first time and I may or may not be in tears
This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.
Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.
I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene
AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about
'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'
when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.
Korra’s journey in Book 4 trailer [X]
(It really looks like she will go on her own spiritual Avatar journey, which she will have to face some of her fears that are still haunting her. From seeing her past self in the Avatar state, to feeling poisoned all over again. We just know she will overcome these obstacles.)
Those things send us down a road… they make us who we are. And if anyone’s destined for greatness, it’s you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them and know that wherever they take you, we’ll always be here. So, come on home, Peter. You’re my here and I love you
