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.
