i wrote an essay on my labyrinth feels and make a graphic to go with it

the way Sarah says “you have no power over me” at the end of labyrinth is SO IMPORTANT. she says it not as a decree that breaks his power over her, but like it’s a realization; it’s coming to a conclusion that he is already aware of. Because, really, what has Jareth been doing this whole movie but trying to prevent her from realizing this? He intimidates her, mocks her, threatens her, distracts her, and ultimately begs her: “just fear me, love me, do as I say…” all (except the last) empty attempts to convince her of his power, and her own inferiority. And when he does beg, his desperation becomes obvious enough for her to figure out his game, that he has no power over her and never did, game over, Sarah 1 Jareth 0.

And you can totally see this “f UCK DAMN SHE WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FIGURE THAT OUT“ on jareth’s face just before he disappears; people make jareth out to be this Cool Sauve Villain but the thing is that he’s trying to come off that way.  he is actually kind of ridiculous; he’s running around desperately trying to impress this 15-year-old-girl who’s beating him at his own game and he is failing. and that’s great. labyrinth is great. labyrinth is a coming-of-age story about a teenage girl defeating the man who’s trying to bully her into submission by seeing right through his constructed facade of power, and calling him out on it.

 I like labyrinth because it has wonderful, bizzare special effects and horrible musical numbers and quirky characters and is a Cool Vintage Fantasy Movie. I love labyrinth because when i first saw this movie it sucked me in by being weird and endearing and then it said to my 15-year-old-identifying-with-sarah-self “YOUR WILL IS STRONG AND YOUR KINGDOM IS GREAT; NEVER LET ANYONE MAKE YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE NOT POWERFUL.”

Kaz: I hate boats they are a slow mode of transportation and even though I’m a tough son of a bitch I still get seasick like how could anyone ever waste their money on something as ridiculous as a boat-

Inej: I sort of want a boat to catch traffickers

Map of the continent of Erilea from the Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J. Maas

I have a real love-hate relationship with this book series. I really struggled with the first few books, especially with Celaena, but then along came Manon, Elide, Lysandra, and Aedion who collectively stole my heart out from under me. Now after finishing Empire of Storms I’m sitting here drawing maps of the continents, and looking forward to hanging out with Chaol and Nesryn again in Tower of Dawn. <3

You all think 2017 will be better than 2016?

Maas Withdrawal Book Recommendations #24: “The Twelve Kingdoms” by Fuyumi Ono

For previous book recommendations, search the tag “Book Recommendations”!

Overview:

For high-schooler Yoko Nakajima, life has been fairly ordinary–that is until Keiki, a young man with golden hair, stalks into her classroom, falls to a knee, and swears to serve her. He also demands Yoko return to their kingdom.

Then the classroom explodes, and a monster attacks.

In the midst of fighting, Yoko and two classmates are taken by demon-like beasts who serve Keiki through a portal to the Twelve Kingdoms, where they are ambushed, separated, and wind up lost without hope of rescue.

Yoko is left with only a magical sword; a gem; and a million questions about her destiny, the world she’s trapped in, and the world she desperately wants to return to-

but Keiki is gone; a mysterious creature haunts her nightmares, taunting her to insanity; and every friend she meets may be a foe in disguise.

This series is ABSOLUTELY incredible, it’s an extreme feat of world-building, and I know Yoko is annoying in book 1 but she gets SO MUCH BETTER! 

Also, I think I’ve watched the anime about 20 times through…
