9 Reasons Why the New “Beauty and the Beast” is Better Than the 1991 Original

I know, such a crazy notion, but as a die-hard fan of the original 1991 animated classic, as a young woman who adored Belle and looked up to her as a young girl, and as someone who loves Disney, I truly believe that while the cartoon classic is phenomenal, the new live-action reimagining is astoundingly better. Here are my reasons why:

1. Back-story 

In the original I always had SO MANY QUESTIONS. Mainly–how in the hell did a village less than a few miles away not know that a giant castle that once was home to a wealthy and powerful Prince was RIGHT THERE? Who was the Prince ruling over if the villagers had no clue this place and this beast existed? Why were the servants cursed if they weren’t the ones who turned the old woman away? Why was the Prince so cold-hearted, arrogant, and shallow? The prologue amongst other scenes in the 2017 film address all these questions.

We learn that the enchantress placed a spell on the villagers to make them forget about the Prince and everyone in the castle. This explains how no one knew it was there, and also the sense of lawlessness in the village, because if their ruler–the Prince–vanished, and no one remembered him then whose in charge? Gaston? No wonder it’s a mess there.

We also learn why Beast is so cold-hearted, we learn his mother died when he was young and his father was emotionally abusive, and raised him to be a spoiled, arrogant, shallow shell of a man. We also learn that the servants witnessed the emotional abuse of this child and did nothing to stop it–deeming them worthy of punishment for being so cowardly and selfish as to not help the Prince when he was young.

Now someone asked me why the hell Chip and the dog were cursed too, they didn’t do anything. My theory is the curse was really only taking effect inside the ballroom, all the servants were in there for the ball, and in the opening sequence we see Chip running in to see what’s the matter and Mrs. Potts running after him–terrified. I believe she sensed the danger in the ballroom, and was trying to save Chip from meeting the same fate as the rest of them, and ultimately–she failed. The Maestro and Madame de Garderobe’s dog was in the ballroom as well, so I guess he was just unlucky also.

We also learn that Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts had spouses who must’ve been away from the castle when the spell was cast, causing them tragically (at least in Mrs. Potts case) to be forgotten by their loves.


2. Belle the Feminist Activist

It was never made clear in the cartoon film that it wasn’t just ‘odd’ that Belle liked reading it was ‘odd’ that a low-born woman in 18th century France even COULD read. It wouldn’t occur to children (it certainly didn’t to me) that her reading in public is practically illegal and worthy of public shame. In the cartoon it was just all ‘lol books are lame,’ In the live action not only does Belle not have a town bookshop to go to (because seriously, why would a town of mostly illiterate people who hate reading have a bookshop) she is merely friends with the Priest who owns less than a dozen books. THAT IS ALL SHE HAS. And then she teaches another young girl how to read and is publicly shamed for it, and still doesn’t back down, because she believes that women deserve the same rights as men. 

In the beginning sequence of the town, we literally see boys marching into school while the girls are stuck doing the wash. Belle also refuses to waste valuable reading time on the laundry–so girl INVENTS A WASHING MACHINE! 

When Belle gets to the castle, she tricks the Beast into taking her instead. She tries savvy ways to escape. She never flings herself onto the bed and cries like in the cartoon. She fights every damn second.

In the end she doesn’t even change out of her ballgown to go save her father, she just hops on her horse and goes. 

Belle was ALWAYS strong, but this 2017 Belle is formidable and a force to be reckoned with.


3. Tragic love

In the 1991 film, the wardrobe was a goofy character there for laughs, as was Plumette. Also, Lumiere and Plumette’s relationship in the cartoon was creepy and borderline sexual harassment. It was pure lust. In this version, they are madly in love and Lumiere clearly cares about her so much. 

We also see Madama de Garderobe and Maestro Cadenza (a brilliant new character) who are also madly in love, but unlike Lumiere and Plumette can’t even be with one another during the curse due to the stationary limitations as the objects they’ve been cursed to be. By the time Madame finally makes her way downstairs to be with Maestro it is too late, the curse is taking away their life. The moment when Lumiere realizes he has lost Plumette, and where Maestro realizes he has lost Madame, add a heart-breaking very raw and real layer to the story. It’s not just about Belle and Beast, these servants aren’t just funny objects that talk, they were people too. They had a life and loves and that was stolen from them just as it was the Beast.

4. Papa and Belle’s Motherless Backstory

In the cartoon, Belle’s father is simply a goofy character. He’s a blithering idiot who makes pointless inventions. In this version, he is an artist who had to leave his plagued wife behind in Paris in order to save their only daughter. We see him live with the pain of this everyday. We see him and Belle have a beautiful, genuine relationship. We see him fight whole-heartedly for Belle. We see him give her courage and strength to never back down from who she is.

And we learn something that the cartoon NEVER gave us–we learn of Belle’s mother. Lost to the plague when Belle was a babe, with nothing but a rose-shaped rattle to remember her by, that her Father captured in a painting. Explaining why Belle always asks for one. We learn that Belle–like her father and mother–is willing to sacrifice everything for the ones that she loves.


5. Classic Fairytale Homage 

While the cartoon held almost no remnants of the original fairytale written over 500 years ago, or the original French film made in the 40s, the 2017 version pays homage to both. 

Belle asking for simply a rose from her father’s travels, as well as Beast and his servants preparing Maurice a fire and dinner when he arrives at the castle, but Beast only growing angry when Maurice steals the rose–is taken directly from the pages of the fairytale. 

We also see another fun easter egg reference to the french film: when Maurice walks up to the door–he sees the front lantern is being held by what looks like a human arm made of stone, which in the French film, was an incredibly iconic scene when Belle walks through the dungeon to find her father.


6. A Real Antagonist

Cartoon Gaston is again, a 2D character there to provide some conflict at the end. The 2017 version shows him as the epitome of prejudice, hatred and sexism. He expresses many times throughout the film the the sees Belle as prey for him to hunt. He leaves Maurice for dead in the wood. The lyrics of the mob song were even changed to include his verse “but I know they all will follow, for in times like this they do just as I say.” Gaston is the scariest Disney villain because people like him exist in real-life. Gaston and his angry mob of blind-followers provide a tangible conflict outside of the curse that the cartoon simply did not provide.


7. A Shared Love of Reading

It never made a damn bit of sense in the 1991 cartoon and the Broadway musical adaptation–that Beast was illiterate. If ANYONE during the time could read it sure as hell would’ve been the wealthy Prince. All aristocracy could read and most men knew how to read a little. So yeah, a Prince could read.

So the fact that he and Belle share a love of reading adds and element to their friendship bred romance that didn’t exist prior to this reimagining.


8. New Music

What would Beauty and the Beast be without those iconic numbers like: ‘Belle,’ ‘Gaston,’ ‘Be Our Guest,’ and of course, the title song–made famous by Angela Lansbury– ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ When Broadway adapted the cartoon film years ago, they added some songs of their own, such as the Broadway-Buff-Beloved number– ‘Home.’ So naturally it would’ve been easy for the writers and directors of this film to just buy the rights to those songs and call it a day. Instead we got 5 gorgeous new numbers, and 1 new reprise. We got the opening ‘Aria,’ sung at the Prince’s beginning ball by Madame de Garderobe, we get ‘How Does a Moment Last Forever,’ sung by Maurice, singing about remembering his late wife. Then we later get the Montmartre of this song sung by Belle as she recalls the lost ‘Paris of her childhood,’ in an all new scene where her and Beast use a magic book to travel to the attic where she lost her mother. We get ‘Days in the Sun,’ where we hear from the servants and the pain they feel as well living under the curse. We get, ‘Evermore,’ the torrid, angst-filled lamenting ballad Beast sings when he let’s Belle go. And lastly, we get a never before heard reprise of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ sung by Mrs. Potts ( Emma Thompson) at Belle and Beast’s wedding. These news songs add more passion to the film. (Evermore is my personal favorite)

9. Gay Lefou

It’s about damn time. Cartoon Lefou is definitely alluded to being in-love with Gaston, but Josh Gads blatantly homosexual portrayal was brilliant, and as a member of the queer community–made me so happy.

Yes, in ‘Frozen’ we got the one throw-away joke about Oaken being gay, but it was 0.5 seconds long and barely delved into. In this 2017 film, Lefou makes many sexual innuendos towards Gaston, publicly cuddles Gaston, and in the end dances happily with another queer fellow at Belle and Beast’s wedding, and this is an amazing step forward for the Disney franchise to start having openly queer characters in their films.


SO THERE YOU HAVE IT! My 9 reasons why the 2017 Beauty and the Beast is better than the 1991 original. I still love the original and it will always have a fond place in my heart–but when movie nights of the future come round, I will opt to put on the 2017 version instead, and experience a Tale as Old as Time, retold for a new generation.

history meme (french edition)  →  free choice: relationships (4/?) Antoinette de Bourbon & Anna d’Este

The specificity of the relationship between Antoinette and Anna lies in the fact that the two women became the pillars of the Guise family, more than the Guise men themselves, and managed to find comfort and support in each other. The bond between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law survived the darkest hour of the 16th century, and was so strong that Anna attempted to recreate it with her own daughter-in-law, though without much success. Born in a turbulent family, daughter of an outspoken and daring mother who never feared to speak up at any cost, Anna suddenly enjoyed the strong mind and sang-froid of the Guise mother, two qualities that would prove to be not only useful, but determinant in her life.

Tell your daughters how you love your body.
Tell them how they must love theirs.
Tell them to be proud of every bit of themselves -
from their tiger stripes to the soft flesh of their thighs,
whether there is a little of them or a lot,
whether freckles cover their face or not,
whether their curves are plentiful or slim,
whether their hair is thick, curly, straight, long or short.
Tell them how they inherited
their ancestors’ souls in their smiles,
that their eyes carry countries
that breathed life into history,
that the swing of their hips
does not determine their destiny.
Tell them never to listen when bodies are critiqued.
Tell them every woman’s body is beautiful
because every woman’s soul is unique.

Part One 

Wedding/Marriage

Kory looks back at her life and the men that affected her before she exchanges her vows. 

My take on wedding/marriage for DickKory week 2017.



Kory looked at herself through the floor length mirror and nervously sighed to herself and fixed the golden tiara that sat on her curled tresses.

Today was the day.

They’ve been through hell and back together and they finally managed to make it to this day.

She had her doubts.

And she knows he did too.

All About Us (mini drabble)

summary: Felicity is feeling a little neglected. 

a/n: it’s been in my head all morning so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


“Oliver.”

He looked up at her, “Yes?”

“We need to go out,” she said, “It’s been a month.”

“We go out every night,” he replied.

“You know that’s not what I mean,” she sighed heavily, “I need to spend some time with you alone.”

He frowned as he looked back down at the sleeping newborn in his arms. There had barely been a moment when he wasn’t focused on their daughter. He didn’t want to let anyone else but him and Felicity to take care of her; he even made sure there were baby safe spaces in the bunker while they were on the streets.

“Oliver, please,” her lip started to quiver.

He stood carefully, holding the baby against his chest with one hand, “Hey, don’t cry,” he whispered, “I’m sorry if I haven’t been giving you the attention you need.”

“If,” she snapped, but still managed to keep her voice low.

He cringed, “I’m sorry I haven’t been giving you the attention you need.”

“I know you’re excited about being a dad and I’m excited about all of this too,” she said, “But I need you.”

God, the last thing he wanted to do was ignore Felicity. The love of his life, his soon to be wife, and the mother of his child. She deserved so much more than this. He wasn’t about to screw up this relationship and honestly he was glad that she spoke up. They were getting much better at communicating their problems.

“I love you so much, Felicity,” he leaned in and kissed her forehead gently, “I promise that hasn’t changed.”

She looked up into his eyes and nodded, “I love you too.”

“Now, how about you take Sleeping Beauty, and I’ll call John,” he handed over their daughter to her.

She shifted slightly, but Felicity held her close, “Shhh it’s okay,” she rubbed her back gently.

Felicity really was a great mom and he enjoyed seeing this side of her.

“Hopefully John and/or Lyla can watch her for a night. Then I’m going to take you out and show you a good time,” he kissed her cheek.

“Mmm,” she hummed, “I like the sound of that.”

“It’s going to be all about us,” he promised.

anonymous asked:

How do you think the process of Daryl falling in love came about? What makes Carol special? When do you think he stopped to think that "oh, I'm having weird (romantic) feelings for her and I feel like I want to get physical with her? (Lol don't judge the last part, don't want to be crude). Just curious on your thoughts.

Aaaahhh, what a beautiful ask, one for digging deep in the Caryl feels. :-)

To be perfectly honest, I believe that while seeing her crack Ed’s skull with the pickaxe he’d handed her after their camp had been overrun by walkers was amazing for him and he might have seen something of himself in her taking out years of humiliation and degradation on her abuser’s body, in my opinion what really made her special to him was her reaction to Sophia being lost.

We learn when he is out there looking for her that night, with Andrea, that he was lost as a kid himself and that nobody even noticed, let alone went out to search for him.

Carol, however, had been distressed over Sophia being out there on her own, with walkers everywhere, a defenseless, unarmed, twelve year old girl, nonstop ever since she had scrabbled out from under the car she was hiding under with Carl and running away in panic. When Rick came back alone because he had tried to draw the two walkers away from her, she was worried. When they went out looking together and didn’t find her she was worried. When she saw the blood on Rick and Daryl’s clothes from gutting the woodchuck walker, she was distraught. She was unable to fall asleep that night because she was so worried for her only child. She tried to suppress her sobbing for fear of annoying that scary, permanently angry guy who got into everyone’s faces all the time who was trying to get some sleep in the RV along with her.

This was something that he had never had himself as a child - parents, a mother, who worried for his safety and well-being, who noticed when he wasn’t where he should be, who were concerned and distressed when something bad happened to him. The “something bad” happening to him had, in fact, been his parents, who neglected and physically and emotionally abused him as a child.

Carol was the complete opposite in terms of parenting of what he himself had experienced, and this must have been a revelation to him. Before Sophia had run off in fear, he had seen Carol protecting her, looking out for her, watching over her, keeping her close so she would be safe. He had seen Sophia being comfortable around Carol, feeling safe and protected with her, again, in stark contrast to himself.

I think that he wanted to preserve this beautiful, strong relationship between mother and daughter, that he wanted to find Sophia because he wanted them both to be able to enjoy and live this again, especially since they were free of Ed now, and that Carol giving this to her child despite the difficult situation she herself had been in with Ed made him admire her for being able to do this. He wanted to give this back to them, because this made them extraordinary to him, it made Carol as a mother extraordinary to him. It was something fragile and beautiful that he wanted to save.

Also, Carol was probably the very first person who 

  • didn’t erupt in violent anger against him over failing to do something he had attempted, and had promised to do;
  • told him that he had value as a person despite having failed;
  • didn’t judge him based on his background and upbringing;
  • didn’t stereotype him because of who he was but allowed him to grow and develop into the person he was always meant to be - where pre-ZA society had denied him that;
  • put his well-being above her own and Sophia’s best interest by telling him to stay at the farm and heal instead of going right back out again to search for Sophia.

At this point, with the group still growing together and the dynamics between its members still evolving, every other member of this group thought very little of him despite everything that we know he had already been doing for them. None of them acknowledged his contributions to their survival and well-being well into 2A. Nobody gave him credit for providing food, being smart, protecting the group, looking for Sophia - something he was outright told nobody expected him to do after they had arrived at the farm because they didn’t actually consider him a part of their group. He was called selfish for not going out on his lonesome for three grown armed men while he was still healing from his injuries incurred during his search for Sophia. I will never be over this. The scene still makes my blood pressure appear. The first person after Carol to acknowledge what he was doing for them was Dale, and he died roughly five minutes after that.

And at this point in Daryl’s personal development, Carol made all the difference to him. She accepted and valued him as a person just the way he was, without judging him for a past and a background that he was unable to influence. Her acknowledgement gave him the room to grow into the man he is, and the courage to even try.

As for the next part of your ask (Why would I judge you for this? She is a beautiful woman, of course he will want to get physical with her!), he might have noticed an urge to go beyond teasing and elbow-nudging with Carol as early as the bus the night after they had taken the prison, when he does an obvious double-take once he realizes that he is touching her and she is enjoying his touch, isn’t trying to get away from him, is still smiling - and he himself isn’t exactly averse to actively touching her either. But he surely didn’t realize yet at that point what was beginning to stir inside him there.

I believe that he started to realize that this was love, at least from his side, when he heard that she had been exiled, and by the time of the Terminus reunion I am convinced he knew that what he feels for her is love. Look at his face when he turns his head and recognizes her. Look at his smile just before they hug. Look at his face during their hug, listen to the overwhelmed little sounds he makes, look at his eyes once he manages to let go and actually look at her again. Daryl knows that he loves Carol, and since their rescue mission to Atlanta he knows that she now sees him as a man and no longer as someone with the mental and emotional maturity of a child. Now he needs to find the courage to ask her if she loves him back - or to say, “yeah, love you too,” if she should tell him first. :-)

I absolutely loved this one, thank you for sending me this! <3

Miss Me? Part One

Today is my wedding day, I thought I would be happier than I was. My wedding day was supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life. I loved Stefan I really did but he wasn’t Kai. Stefan really was there for me when I really needed someone after Kai was killed. Stefan helped me raise my child, and I couldn’t thank him enough for that. But part of me still loves Kai, it might be for the fact that Kai and I have a child together, a daughter, who is like her father in so many ways, the good qualities about him anyways or because I never loved someone as much as I loved Kai. I saw the good in Kai while everyone else just saw him as a monster, but there is nothing I can do to change what happened to him, it was his own doing. I tried to stop him but he wouldn’t listen to me and he just wanted to get revenge on his family, I don’t blame him but he went about it the wrong way, and of course he had to do it at my father’s wedding to his sister Jo. So of course my dad wasn’t happy that I was in a relationship with Kai because of what Jo told him about Kai. He never got to know Kai I knew. So when I told my dad that I was pregnant with Kai’s child he got really upset and said he never wanted to see me or my child again. Which I totally understand because of why Kai did, but that didn’t lost long he came and said he was sorry for what he said. Stefan was there for me through it all, he was such a great friend, we both started to develop feelings for each other and started dating. He loves my daughter like she was his own, she calls him daddy and everything, she of course knows that Stefan isn’t really her dad. A couple of years later Stefan proposed to me and I said yes because I knew it was the best thing for my daughter. She could have a normally life, well as normally as you get get living in Mystic Falls and having a mother that is a witch and a step-father that is an ex-vampire. Stefan knows that I still have feelings for Kai just like he still has feelings for Elena. We both know that we aren’t going to be able to get back together with them, so we decided to marry each other. So now were are back to present day, my wedding day. I’m here getting ready to marry my best friend but I keep thinking that something is going to stop this from happing, I have this weird feeling. I was sitting in my wedding dress at the mirror in the dressing room just staring at myself, when I hear a knock at the door. Which pulled me out of my thoughts. “The doors up, unless you are Stefan than go way, its bad luck to see the bride before the wedding.” I hear a chuckle. “Its not Stefan but its your dad.” “Come in Daddy.” My dad opens the door and he has the biggest smile on his face and I copy his smile. “ I can’t believe that my baby is getting married, my little girl is all grown up and looks so beautiful.” “Stop Dad, and you still have Josie and Lizzie as your little girls butThanks Dad” “yes but no matter how old you get you will always be my little girl, even with Josie and Lizzie, you and I have a special bond plus you are my first born, but are you ok? You don’t seem all that happy.” “Dad stop you are going to make me cry and make my makeup run and Caroline will flip her lid, I am happy, if I told you why you would get upset and I don’t want that, you have been through a enough.” “We don’t want that to happen, and Honey you can tell me anything, I promise I won’t get upset.” “Are you sure Dad?” “Yes, I’m sure.” “I always thought Kai and I would get married, not saying I don’t love Stefan because I do, I really do but part of me still loves Kai.” “Just because I don’t care for Kai doesn’t mean you can’t talk about him to me, of course part of you will always love Kai, you share a beautiful daughter together, and part of me still and always will love Jo, she is the mother of the twins. Its understandable. I never doubted that you didn’t love Stefan, not for a minute.” “Thanks Dad, I guess you are right, I just don’t want to get hurt again, all my past relationship ended in death. Kol, Kai, I don’t want that with Stefan, especially now that he is human.” “Oh Honey I understand that feeling, I mean look at my relationship history, they haven’t ended the best either and all but two relationships ended in death, your mother and Caroline.” “I guess we have a curse on us, I don’t think my mother counts, she left you after I was born.” “True but she isn’t died that I know of, Yes there is a thing called the Saltzman curse, but nothing is going to happen to Stefan. I don’t think Damon would let that happen.” “Well she’s dead to me, but I sure hope so.” There was another knock at the door. My dad goes and answers the door and its Damon. “Stefan is so going to cry when he sees you Lauren ” “Shut up Damon but Thanks, How’s Stefan doing?” “Nervous as all get out but he is doing ok.” “Honey, I’m going to let you and Damon talk, I will be out in the hallway when you are ready.” “Ok Dad!” My dad leaves.“ “Now Damon why are you really here?” “Why do you always think there as to be a reason?” “Because its you.” “Fine, Stefan feels like something is going to ruin your big day and I keep telling that nothing is going to happen.” “He feels that way too?” “Oh boy you think that too? Nothing is going to happen.” “You don’t know that, this is Mystic Falls Damon and weddings aren’t really my families thing, remember what happened at the last wedding?” “Lauren that is not going to happen I promise you!” “Ok you better be.” Caroline comes running into the room with Bonnie behind her, remind me why I let Caroline help me plan this wedding, I love her but she can be intense. “Lauren you need to find Alaric and get in to place, because this wedding is about to start. Damon why are you in there, go to Stefan now!” Damon leaves. “Caroline breath!” “Sorry I forget to do that sometimes, by the way you look beautiful, Stefan won’t know what hit him.” “Lauren , you look so beautiful, Stefan is one lucky guy” “Thanks Caroline and Bonnie, and thank you both for helping me plan this amazing wedding.” “ You are welcome Lauren , but Caroline pretty much did it all.” “No problem, you’re one of my best friends, I would anything for you plus you know I love planning these type of things.” “You are the best!” “I know, but we need to get you in place.” “Ok I will go, is Josie, Lizzie and Lilah (your daughter) ready?” “They are so ready, they cant wait to throw flowers.” We all laugh and hug each. “Let’s get you married girl!” “Yeah we need to get into places like right now.” “Caroline calm down!” we all come out of the room and I walk over to my dad. We both walk downstairs, we wait for the music to play, and we start walking to Stefan. I looked up and smiled at Stefan and he smiled back at me, he had a tear running down his face. Once we got to Stefan, I heard my dad say, “protect her.” “Always.” Stefan takes my hands into his. We both smile. Everything was going great until the wedding officiant says, “if any person knows any cause as to why the couple should not be wed, they should speak now, or forever hold their peace.” it was silence for a little while, until I saw someone stand up in the corner of my eye, that can’t be, no that isn’t Kai Parker, he’s died, I saw Damon kill him, I was there, that can’t be him but this is Mystic Falls anything can happen I want to look but I don’t at the same time, I guess I will look over at him. Yup that was Kai Parker in the flesh, but how. Before I could say anything. Kai starts waving his finger around and making airplane noises and says, ” I wonder who that person would be, I can’t seem to put a finger on who wouldn’t want to see these two lovey people getting married, oh would you look at that, it would be me Kai Parker.“ Kai finally stops moving his finger and points at himself. I look back at Stefan with a confused look on my face and he has the same confused look on his face. “Stefan what is going on?” “I have no clue Lauren ” “oh I know, I know want’s going on, I’m stopping you two from getting married, I thought I would do it differently this time, I realized that killing people aren’t always the answer, I made that mistake at the last wedding I went to, it got really blood and this suit is really expensive and blood doesn’t come out of clothes and I’m just sick of killing, well not really but I decided that a wedding isn’t the best place to kill someone” “Kai what are you doing here?”

What I’m Excited for in Crystal Dream/Supers

so the dream arc is probably my favorite of the manga arcs (followed very closely by stars and infinity, tbh a three way tie for #1 because REASONS) and considering infinity is about to start next week, i feel its time i go ahead and make my usual “this is what i cant wait to see in *insert crystal arc here*” post that i’ve made ever since crystal was announced.

anyways without further ado… (under the cut because LONG POST IS LONG)

Witcher moments (9) - Family

- Your great causes, your wars, your struggle to save the world … Your end which justifies the means … Prick up your ears, Philippa. Can you hear those voices, that yowling? Those are cats fighting for a great cause. For indivisible mastery over a heap of rubbish. It’s no joking matter—blood is being spilled and clumps of fur are flying. It’s war. But I care incredibly little about either of these wars, the cats’ or yours.
- That’s only what you imagine, hissed the magician. All this is going to start concerning you—and sooner than you think. You’re standing before necessity and choice. You’ve got yourself mixed up in destiny, my dear, far more than you’ve bargained for. You thought you were taking a child, a little girl, into your care. You were wrong. You’ve taken in a flame which could at any moment set the world alight. Our world. Yours, mine, that of the others. And you will have to choose. Like I did. Like Triss Merigold. Choose, as your Yennefer had to. Because Yennefer has already chosen. Your destiny is in her hands, witcher. You placed it in those hands yourself.
The witcher staggered. Shani yelled and tore herself away from Dandilion. Geralt held her back with a gesture, stood upright and looked straight into the dark eyes of Philippa Eilhart.
- My destiny, he said with effort. My choice … I’ll tell you, Philippa, what I’ve chosen. I won’t allow you to involve Ciri in your dirty machinations. I am warning you. Whoever dares harm Ciri will end up like those four lying there. I won’t swear an oath. I have nothing by which to swear. I simply warn you. You accused me of being a bad guardian, that I don’t know how to protect the child. I will protect her. As best I can. I will kill. I will kill mercilessly…

—————————————

Ciri sniffed.
- I’ve already seen a war, she whispered. I don’t want to see another. Never. I don’t want to be alone again. I don’t want to be frightened. I don’t want to lose everything again, like that time. I don’t want to lose Geralt … or you, Lady Yennefer. I don’t want to lose you. I want to stay with you. And him. Always.
- You will. The magician’s voice trembled a little. And I’m going to be with you, Ciri. Always. I promise you.

“Andrzej Sapkowski - Blood of elves”


“Sword of destiny” ends with Geralt saying to Ciri that they’ll always be together. “Blood of elves” ends with Yen saying the same thing to her and Geralt declaring war to the world for his daughter.
Family is united and ready for the epic journey that will come.

The final chapter in “Blood of elves” is one of my favorites from all 8 books. The relationship between Yen and Ciri goes from strangers to mother-daughter in such a beautiful way…I think there will be some (more) quotes from this chapter.
