anonymous asked:

have you seen the teaser 2 of MCK ? I hate to ruin the fairy tale, but haven't anyone working on this show heard mamluk sulltanate at all ?Incidently, the rivals of the ottomans in the middle east until 1517 ? People went from slaves (in arabic, mamluk means "owned", quite literary ) to kings and rulers all the time !!! But then what's a Tims production without the characters speaking nonesense

it’s called self-celebration, anon. pure self-celebration. kosem saying “this is one of the palaces in the world where a slave can rise to become a sultana” wouldn’t have sounded as good as “this is the only palace in the world where a slave can rise to become a sultana.”

I heard the middle one is gevherhan sultan, the far left is burnaz atike sultan and haseki ayse sultan is the one with sorta pink gown buuutt idk and WHO IS PRINCESS FARIA BETHLEN 

if wikipedia is right - and tbh their version makes much more sense than what i’ve seen all over the net - the blonde princess is atike, who apparently will be twin to ibrahim, the princess in the middle is gevherhan and the princess in pink is ayse sultan. faria bethlen will become haseki ayse sultan, and it makes sense as she’s standing and not sitting down, ie. she’ll have a big role in the season. 

it would make zero sense for murad’s haseki to be sitting between a princess and a prince, especially because she’s wearing a tiara but atike isn’t??? weeeird

anyway this is what i personally think

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.

You claim to love her, inside and out, but the only time you call her beautiful is when it’s 3 in the morning and I’ve already turned you down.
