John Bauer, Agneta and The Sea King, Swedish Folktales.
This has a beautiful story that goes with it, with the sea king trying to convince her to just take his hand and she’ll become the water queen and have mermaids in waiting and pearls in her hair
and she does not reach out
because she knows that he is the king of an underworld and he’ll take her down into the cold dark depths
and she won’t return
Natalie Dormer at the 66th Annual Emmy Awards
I think she’s channeling Robert Plant a little bit.
i have 3 moods for characters:
- the ruler of my heart please step on me
- precious child must be protected at all costs
- complete trash yet ironically my favorite character
what’s the point of being a fan if you’re not a critical one? what’s the point of absorbing media without the intention of analyzing it? i don’t understand why some people wholeheartedly defend their faves’ flaws and shortcomings, when pointing out and not supporting your faves’ problematic aspects DOES NOT MAKE YOU ANY LESS OF A FAN BUT MAKES YOU AN ENGAGED AND AWARE CONSUMER
