Alex Grey - Progress of the Soul pt.78
“Liberation Through Seeing”

“But, nevertheless, if there is even the slightest recognition, liberation is easy. Should you ask why this is so—it is because once the awesome, terrifying and fearful appearances arise, the awareness does not have the luxury of distraction. The awareness is one-pointedly concentrated.” Karma-glin-pa, author of the Tibetan Book of the Dead

Great new addition to the Mae/glin hc: Id/rils reputation gets burned to the ground. Not only is she labeled a creep for crushing on a elf equal to 15 years old but it's her fucking cousin. She seen as a witch for destroying what little self esteem he had left. Ared/hel nearly hunted her down because how dare that grown ass elf prey on her teenage son and make him out to be the creep but Tur/gon and fing/on hold her back. Mae/glin is busy holding back E/ol for the same reason

Oh yeah I can see that. Her sexual attraction toward her underage cousin, her cousin of all things is alarming. And to think, she ruined a teenagers life for rejecting her disturbing creepy crush. That doesn’t look good on her part at all. I can see so many had to stop poor Mae/glin’s parents from ripping his cousin to shreds. I can’t even imagine how livid Ared/hel is and it probably frightens her poor son.

Mae/glin can probably hold his dad down easier than two age old elven kings can their little sister T-T. NO one messes with her child like that and lives to tell the story.

Another maegs hc, censored names for obvious reasons lol…

What if it was who loved Mae.glin, but he didn’t return her feelings.

So when he rejected, her that’s when she spread rumors about him in Gondolin. That’s why she was so cold and bitter toward him, making sure that everyone knew that “he” lusted after her, and that he was a “dark elf”, to the core.

Because, looking at the canon silm, Mae.glin himself never confirms his feelings for And he never speaks to he about love or romance—and it’s hinted that he never loved her as much as she lets off. He never once approached her about it, he simply went about his own business.

So why, would she find the need to spread rumors, especially such awful rumors about someone who didn’t even interact with her, nor tell her that he loved her. Why would she make such a thing up?

Interesting revisionism on Idri/Mae dynamics. And such dynamic has many examples in real life that range from tiny "urg" to "I don't like them, they are asshat" rants out of blue to "I WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE AND MAKE IT LIVING HELL SO YOU DIE IN AGONISING AGONY SLOWLY WHILE YOUR SOUL IS DEVOURED BY GOOODS OF OUTER DAAAAARKNEEEEES!!!!11". Okay I am over. HC is really interesting to think about.

Yeah it does lol! I kind of drew this from real events too. There was a girl at my highschool who liked a boy, and he didn’t like her back. She asked him out and he rejected her, so she started spreading rumors about him, lying about him and she even spread a serious personal secret of his. And this was all because he rejected her.

So I kind of saw it that way as well. And like, the narrative screams that Idr/il is a spoiled brat, so it wouldn’t surprise me if Mae/glin rejected her or not, she’d still spread rumors.

I mean canonically, there was no proposal or rejection from either of them and she STILL spread rumors.

But yeah, it’s certainly a headcanon that correlates to real life.

I’m glad you like the headcanon!

  • Elphaba: You have too many friends.
  • Galinda: I’m pretty sure that’s not possible. And, anyway, I wouldn’t call them all ‘friends.’
  • Elphaba: There are only so many hours in the day, Glin. Two, three people — that’s all any of us have time for.
  • Galinda: There are more people than that in the Charmed Circle, Elphie.
  • Elphaba: I know. It’s a struggle.
  • Elphaba: Why should an old man behind a curtain regulate the Animal bann?
  • Glinda: Elphaba, please.
  • Elphaba: Glin, I'd rather be divisive than indecisive. Drop the niceties.
  • Glinda: This is a bad idea. A bad, bad idea!
  • Elphaba: If by 'bad' you mean 'badass', you're welcome.
  • Glinda: We could get arrested.
  • Elphaba: No risk, no reward. Worst case scenario, you're the first person in your family to do hard time.
  • Glinda: Third, actually.
  • Elphaba: The more I find out about you, Glin, the more I find intriguing.
