ALTERNIA HEADCANON: Walter Disney/The Troll Disney Company
I… this headcanon I was bouncing around with @altamaranempire this morning that nearly killed me makes me happy and afraid at the same time. I’m just going to try and explain it in notes because I don’t know if I can do it any other way.
“I have to store it inside the fridge because this book it´s just too hot for this world”–Maleficent.
In villainy, nothing is much more wonderful than having your own spellbook. Owning a spellbook it´s an experience unsurpassed by any other. That book has all kinds of secrets, knowledge, power, lore, instructions, recipes, incantations and raw magical energy to tap into for years to come.
Thanks to Mal, Evie, Jay, Carlos and Ben, that book is safe and secure in the hands of its owner, which is not necessarily a good thing (at least if your name is Pete and you have just made a fool out of yourself).
So, in the spirit of Halloween, the Mistress of All Evil wants you to have a close enough copy of it to use whenever you want to cast a spell or create a ritual or have a fun read.
A Special Thanks: Ever since I began reading tarot and oracle cards, one of the things that fascinated the most me were the spreads. Sure, I learned the basic ones, the ones that everyone knew about. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that the spreads were boundaries to be pushed and experimented with. And I think playing and letting your imagination fly is how you discover wonderful new things that look great and really work. So this spread was inspired by one such person who I admire and that´s “GRIMOIRE OF GEEKERY”. I will be forever thankful because the spreads published there inspired me to create my own and to play with my cards. This spread is inspired by his wonderful “Grimoire Spread”. Both of us just love books of spells. I share with Grimoire of Geekery that fascination with the stories where such books make an apparence. So thanks, Grimoire of Geekery. Keep on shining. I´m sure I´m not the only one you have inspired to think outside the box which is what Pop Culture Magick is all about. Thank you so much! #truefairytale ;)
“I went to Disneyland for a vacation, my family argued as usual. We were sat and waiting for the fireworks, and we hadn’t gotten really good seats, but these people came over to us and said that they had front row seats and that they wanted to share them with us, because they wanted to spread the Disney magic. When the fireworks started, and ‘Second Star To The Right’ started playing I started crying because I realised Disney truly was what made me happy and I can’t thank those people enough.”

I find the Disney fandom can be a really hostile environment to belong in. I see all the time so many people who are Disney apologists, who insult people who have real problems with the movies (especially on notions of race, sexuality, gender, disability, etc.). It’s just so baffling to me that nostalgia blinds people from criticizing anything this company has done – and I’ve seen people even defending overtly racist scenes like “What Makes the Red Man Red” from Peter Pan. It’s so ironic to me because a common rebuttal is: “These movies weren’t meant to be taken in a political context. They’re supposed to promote happiness. Why can’t you just enjoy the movie?” The point of Disney movies is to spread magic and happiness, but how can you expect someone to enjoy a movie that offends them? Why can happiness only be experienced by one group of people? To deny marginalized people of their justifiable complaints is to deny them the entire point of the Disney message.
