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'

# this is why i can’t quit this shit show # because every now and then you get this. # where the actors sell the absolute hell out of it. # without a word of dialogue # this is the face of heartbreak # because there’s snow’s words # and all emma hears are the echoes # of all those voices saying # how worthless and unwanted and unlovable she is # and then the show never followed through!! # of all the secrets they could have given snow!! # they give her the one that essentially tells emma # ’it doesn’t matter how abused you were or abandoned you felt # my deepest desire is to sacrifice you for david and the chance for a do-over’ # really show? really? # when emma got her memories back in 3b # and was talking about going back to new york # i honestly thought they were gonna have her say # it’s because she realized how much her parents suck # and wants fuck all to do with them. # because snow got what she wanted # david and soon to be replacement emma # what does she need emma for? # way to go adam and other guy # if your goal was to make me hate snow white? congratulations # you’ve succeeded!! - via trancer21
Everything changed. Now, what will she become? (x)
I literally overcame self esteem issues by making ironically over-arrogant claims because even if you’re joking about something a lot you start to believe it and that can totally work in a good way if you let it
They’ve done studies and the “fake it till you make it” mindset actually works and if you keep up a mantra you come to believe it after a time. It actually is how I came to really love myself.
WHEN COUPLES START TO LOOK ALIKE
University of Michigan psychologist Robert Zajonc analyzed photographs of couples taken when they were newlyweds and photographs of the same couples taken 25 years later.
The results showed that the couples had grown to look more like each other over time. The happier the couple said they were, the more likely they were to have increased in their physical similarity.
Zajonc suggested that older couples looked more alike because people in close contact mimic each other’s facial expressions. In other words, if your partner has laughs a lot, he or she will probably develop laugh lines around their mouth — and so will you.
Other evidence has also shown that men and women may be initially attracted to partners with similar personalities.
It turns out we may even be hard-wired to fall in love with people who have similar DNA. In a study of twins, University of Western Ontario scientists found that not only did participants tend to pick partners with similar genes; the spouses of the identical twins were also more alike than the spouses of non-identical twins.
Couples may start to look like each other because in some ways they already are like each other.
This drink I like it. Another!
I love how quickly he readjusts to the culture so foreign to him. Like, he does not even protest or try to explain this is how it’s done in Asgard so it’s how it SHOULD be done because he’s a mighty god and stuff. He’s just like “but I… oh I see smashing mugs is not a custom here. I’m sorry I won’t do it again :( “
A lot of people could learn from this.
