#sarah the mythchild kingslayer story-swallower #her will is as strong as yours and her eyes can be so cruel #and when she says her kingdom is as great as his it is because this is her kingdom #he is the raptor at her wrist and flies (takes; frightens; reorders time) at her word #she is the queen who makes herself; if persephone had no hades to offer her the pomegranate #she would have had to invent him #now come away with me child; to the water and the wild #find yourself on the edges of mazes and dreamscapes #and choose and choose and choose #have choices taken from you and choose anyway #(this is how women are made; in choosing)
#this is what i wanted this is what i needed this is what i firmly believe happened after the end of the film #the object becoming aware and turning her objectification into power; wielding it like a weapon #and taking a kingdom through the heart and soul of its ruler#forever wroth that i can never find a story about being stolen away by the unseelie court that has a satisfactorily dark and vicious tran… #transformative ending #howl’s moving castle the book has the structure but not the darkness (i love it anyway) #the bitterbynde trilogy has the queenship but at the cost of the brutality #(but i love it anyway)#labyrinth #someday we may see a woman king #those imperial disimpassion’d eyes#the queen of the unseelie court in all her variations #she hears voices from under the earth

Jareth: Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations. Isn’t that generous?
This picture is just so amazing~
“Here’s what they don’t tell you about love. Love comes with a little bit of death. No sooner can you love another than you kill a piece of yourself. When that love dies, as all loves eventually do, so does that piece of you. You can’t get it back, it’s gone forever. The reason I know this is when you kiss me, I feel like I’m dying. Which tells me that, if I want to keep all the parts of me exactly where they are, feeling exactly the way they do, I should never kiss you.”
“And yet, I think you will again.”
“I’ve always known you’d be the death of me.”
