Rapunzel didn’t just cut her hair and leave her tower. She also hunted down the prince who showed her another world beyond her’s who was too hurt and broken to belong anywhere, healed him, and brought him home to rule wisely and with justice at her side with their children.
Oddly, it’s one of the more feminist fairytales if you read the witch as a woman who had been so hurt by men that she felt the need to save her neighbors’ daughter. The Disney version removes a lot of the female interactions, but most versions mention how the witch constantly warned Rapunzel that men were evil, would hurt and use her, and then would abandon her. There’s also some lesbian subtext between the mother and the witch, which makes the fallout when the witch discovered Rapunzel’s pregnancy more poignant and painful.
Anyhow. Interesting choice of fairytales there, Damian.
Dong Wook. It was so nice working with you.I hope we can work in another drama again. I miss you.
- Mr Goblin, Gong Yoo hyung. We had beautiful days. I wasn’t lonely, thanks to you. If we could work together again. I think we can have more fun.
so a million years ago, @shallura commissioned me for a – you guessed it – shallura piece, and it evolved into this gif-thing combined with a more-detailed-frame-thing. She’s very patiently waited through me saying “it’s not good enough / it needs more work” about a hundred times, until right now when I finally feel somewhat satisfied with everything so… thank you, rachel!!! & congrats to you and your beautiful otp :)
