Candy Coated Perfection

18+ please cause I will not be held responsible for your youth being tarnished by my evilness ^_^. This blog is for me and my pleasures, my wants, my rants, my whatever-the-fucks-I-wants. If you have a question, ask it. If you want to submit something, do it. Stats about me: I'm a 28 yr old pansexual poly kinky sour patch. ;)

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

Children, children. Yes, he was playing by the rules, and yes, he gets to be the villain. In lit crit, you get to have your cake and eat it too!
And then run away from it when it turns into a whirling tunnel cleaner death machine.
That analogy got away from me a bit. And is now chasing me down a hallway brb

OH MY GOD are people really getting buttmad about calling David Bowie in Labrynth the villain
sure, she asked him to take the baby, but she clearly didn’t know that fairies were like, a real thing? and he could have just NOT TAKEN THE BABY, he could have done that. Christ. “Abloobloobloo fae have laws” what a nerd. He’s the villain. It’s a MOVIE. IT’S A KIDS MOVIE. HE’S THE VILLAIN. 

We have laws too! And this is clearly an unconscionable contract because Sarah is a) probably a minor and b) completely unaware that she is actually entering into a contract! You can’t actually make a contract with someone when you have reasonable grounds to believe that they don’t exist.
Who was it I was talking with a while back about fae lawyers? I’m pretty sure any fae lawyer worth their salt could get judgment for the plaintiff in the Unseelie Supreme Court.
I understand that this is contrary to the spirit of missv’s entirely valid “it’s a kids’ movie you nerds” point, but I’m not averse to fighting nerd with nerd.

Point A is correct.  She is 15 at the time of the events that happened.
However, point B?  It can be safe to assume that while she was not sure Jareth existed, she knew of his existence.
" A pan of Sarah’s room at the start of the film shows that she has a number of children’s books on her shelves, including The Wizard Of Oz, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and Maurice Sendak’s Outside Over There. The reading material shown in Sarah’s room indicates that she has a love of fairy-tales and fantasy, a trait that is also suggested by the fact she is first seen rehearsing a play in pseudo-medieval costume."
"Prior to encountering Jareth directly, Sarah knows him solely as a character in the play The Labyrinth. When she first comes face to face with him, she is terrified and begs him to return her brother…"
So with the above in mind, she has a clue about how contracts with fae beings work, if only from having read about them extensively.

IT IS GETTING BETTER

When I first read about this woman’s plan I thought it was a strong idea but I was worried that it was a little bit much for one person, no matter how dedicated, to keep it up for too long, especially since she has, you know, college to commit to. I never thought about how, if other people helped her carry her burden, I never thought about how much it would look like pallbearers with a coffin. Which is simply one of the strongest visual symbols one can use to disturb people in the western world.

you rock it, young feminist protesters. Fuck yeah, I am so proud of you.

Yes, they’re awesome.

But I think there is another part about this I like, too.  Notice the burden of that pain is being shared — made lighter by women committed to being here and helping.  They can’t fix it, of course but mutual support makes the burden lighter.

No wonder the patriarchy wants us in competition with each other…

Mark Ruffalo, eating Ruffles on a Buffalo

You’re my favorite artist

At this point, I’m shocked when I’m seeing these things before they are reblogged by actual Mark Ruffalo.

At this point that is the only surprising thing to me.
