love Mythology. You know what I love most about Mythology?
Everyone just assumes Hades is a badass. Hades isn’t a badass. Hades named his three-headed-guard-of-the-underworld-dog that looks like it can chew your head leg and arm off instantaneously - spot. He called his dog spot! (Not joking look it up,“Cerberus” is a Latinised version of the Greek Kerberos, from a Proto-Indo-European word *ḱerberos, meaning “spotted”. Literally I laughed myself senseless.) Hades whispers to his flowers to make them grow. Hades grows fruit, there is no sun in the underworld. Let’s be honest the guy probably double knots his laces and cries when there are no more ice cream tubs left in the freezer after a tough day of dealing with Zeus and Poseidon.
Persephone however, that so called frail little thing that he “kidnapped” ? Yeah, about that. She’s another case all together. When Hermes went to the Underworld he expected to find a scared little girl. Instead he found a thriving Queen. No like literally she would fight anyone who said anything bad or that hurt Hade’s feelings. She’d probably pet his head and constantly reassured him he was a fantastic King of the Underworld, and that he was totally scary and all that shit - while she glared at anyone who dared think differently, telling them to meet her in the pit. That girl didn’t want to be another Maiden in the field. She knew exactly what she was doing when she ate those seeds. She wanted a Kingdom, and that’s what she got.
If that isn’t life goals , then I don’t know what is.
↳ “I would say the influence I would like to have on the queer community would be to inspire people—specifically queer POCs—to feel comfortable in themselves and their identities, to understand that they’re special, they’re amazing, and that anything you want or dream about, you deserve it. All you have to do is work hard and find the people who will help you. Find your support system.”
That woman is my literal hero. I would actually kill a man to meet her. You think I’m exaggerating but I assure you I am not.
The Sound of Music, first of all. Like holy cow what a precious lil baby and badass temporary nun with the voice of an ANGEL.
Nanny and magic af and hella charming .
The Princess Diaries, like whoa. She lost her voice and then she gets on screen and is a literal QUEEN and has a romantic storyline while teaching Mia to be a princess and the scene with the streetcar is the best. And THEN Princess Diaries 2 where she SINGS on screen even though she had surgery before and lost her voice like how brave are you??
And then any interview with her like she is the picture of class and grace and joy and loveliness and she wears pantyhose in a way that makes them look comfortable, what sorcery is that?? And she’s also an actual DAME and acts like everything is no big deal.
Troian is truly the ultimate pretty little liar, she kept that she was AD from all of her castmates for almost TWO YEARS while she was FILMING WITH THEM. If that isn’t the most hardcore method acting I dont know what is she is literally queen
