Labyrinth is 50% glitter and 50% David Bowie’s crotch and that is why its so beautiful.
After approximately five hundred viewings, I’ve decided that the video for Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally” is a sequel to Labyrinth.
#sarah the mythchild kingslayer story-swallower #her will is as strong as yours and her eyes can be so cruel #and when she says her kingdom is as great as his it is because this is her kingdom #he is the raptor at her wrist and flies (takes; frightens; reorders time) at her word #she is the queen who makes herself; if persephone had no hades to offer her the pomegranate #she would have had to invent him #now come away with me child; to the water and the wild #find yourself on the edges of mazes and dreamscapes #and choose and choose and choose #have choices taken from you and choose anyway #(this is how women are made; in choosing)
Pretty sure I’ve reblogged this before, but HOT DAMN THOSE TAGS. Yesssss powerful fantasy women who make themselves into queens and goddesses through sheer power of their own intent.
I don’t have a lot of always-reblogs, but I WILL REBLOG THIS EVERY SINGLE TIME IT COMES ACROSS MY DASH.

[1/5] Villains — Jareth, The Goblin King | Labyrinth (1986)
"Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me, I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me. Isn’t that generous?"
“Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child you have stolen, for my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom as great. You have no power over me!”
