Still sick. Worse than before. Started watching “Hansel & Gretel, Witch Hunters.” Realized that I really just wanted to watch The Avengers again. So I will.

Tumblr, I’m sick, and cranky because I’m sick and it’s 72 degrees, sunny, and breezy outside.

What should I watch? I have Netflix streaming, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime. I caught up on Arrow yesterday.

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

Oh, my god, now I want the au story of the King and Queen swallowing her fear and inviting Maleficent, and then the scary awesome present, and Maleficent becoming the dark fairy godmother and aiding Aurora against whatever the alternate big bad is.

Aaaand, this is now all spinning out in my head as the best plot threads seem to do. *dies*

Incidentally, I read one that in one of the original tellings, Maleficent (or the equivalent) wasn’t invited because fairies must be served off of gold plates, and the only had 10 gold plates, but there were eleven fairies, so they just didn’t invite her out of a backwards attempt to be polite.

ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.

ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg….

I’m a butt who would do well in an apocalypse. Accurate. 

INFJ: chameleons appropriating your emotions and going quietly mad. prone to meltdowns and needing lots of naps.

Yep.

hi sharkflip. been following you on FP for a while now, and I'm sure people have asked this before, but: is Enslaved dead? its such a compelling story, and I'd love to see more of it.

It’s not dead! Really! I have every intention of finishing it!

I’ve just been super busy with real life, which follows a period of such intense depression that I didn’t even want to write (the period of depression ended three years ago, so don’t worry; I’m fine now!). I also just finished the busiest part of my year (55-hour weeks at a job that’s structured for 40), so will have some breathing space this month.

Thanks for asking!

SO TRUE
Today, I am filled with FEELINGS about INDEPENDENCE DAY. Namely that I have to work ALL GODDAMN WEEKEND BITCHES because we put on a big festival for all you other motherfuckers to enjoy on your patriotic long weekend off. GO GRILL SOME FREEDOM, AMERICA.

Me toooo, because to entitled 1%’ers, this is just another three-day weekend. Only with fireworks. 

Guh. Fifteen hour day on my feet, and apparently a mob rushed our safety barriers (I was on the other side of the event). Feeling hungover without having had the benefit of a drink, and still have TWO DAYS LEFT.

Side question: If MCU Tony were to impress any color dragon (canonly, I know there is that great story out there where he impresses Gold, but I need to keep it canon) what color would it be?

Because I’m equally split between green and bronze. Thoughts?

I can’t decide if his queen dragon would be the fussiest in existence or the most patient. Like when she clutches, Tony goes batshit fussing over the eggs and designing contraptions to turn them over just so, and the dragon would either humor him or be like “no, they need to be turned like *this.*”

I’m dying. I just can’t. OMG. There are so many possibilities. And Tony is the only son of a lord, and wasn’t supposed to impress, but he did, and he impressed a gold, and everyone is like *head in hands* “Tony, Tony, Tony,” except his uncle is like “Now’s my chance!” But then Tony and his yearling queen dragon foil his evil plot and, and, and…

I think that the dragon has to be fussy, and they have to bicker, but I can’t decide if it should be Pepper bickering or Jarvis bickering (and should the dragon be Jarvith?)

I AM ON THE BUS TO WORK AND HAVE ALL THESE FEELS

I’m sorry, I’m completely stuck on the idea of Tony impressing a gold dragon. Such awesome hijinks would ensue, I can’t even stand it.

Here’s a question for my anonymous not-IRL tumblr blog: how immoral would it be to get a guide-dog-in-training harness for my puppy so that I can take him on the water taxi and subway with me?

He’s a retriever, and I’m training him to high standards, so I would be expecting him to follow guide-dog obedience protocols, so I wouldn’t be degrading actual guide dogs and guide-dogs-in-training with his behavior. However, letting people think he is a guide dog is definitely dishonest, since I am able-bodied and he is my pet — but is it a harmful dishonesty?

On the other hand, I do have a professionally-diagnosed anxiety disorder, and could probably get him declared as my service animal… except to me that would be far more grievously dishonest than getting him a fake harness, since my anxiety disorder is treated and not interfering with my daily life (except when I forget to eat lunch, which is my own damn fault).

TL;DR: I just want to take my puppy everywhere but I don’t want to move to Europe.
