Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

Evil for evil’s sake?

For a prompt: “Who would you be if everyone in the world suddenly stopped being these 3D characters, and became far more 2D? I.e. good for good’s sake, evil because they’re evil. Like old cartoons and the like, with evil witches and good knights etc?”

If you’re the one asked me this, I hope you don’t mind me using it here!

When I was younger, I wanted to be a goth. I wore too much black eyeliner, an old blue shirt of my mum’s and slightly tacky jewellery. I loved those tattoo style choker necklaces, but sadly I broke mine. I *cough cough* wanted so hard to be a goth that I bought tarot cards, a spell book and attempted to become a Satanist. I failed, it was all very embarrassing and frankly I’m blushing with shame even now.

At that point, I wanted to be rebellious and “evil” for the sake of it. My first reaction is that I’d like to be the evil witch because they get the better powers, are more interesting and don’t always solve the problem by applying a handsome prince. Also, the villains pretty much always get the best song in the movie – Scar with Be Prepared, Mother Gothel from Tangled with Mother Knows Best, Frollo with Hellfire, to deviate from Disney how about Hocus Pocus and the witches singing Come Little Children and I’ll Put a Spell On You?

While I’d like to be the evil witch purely because it’s my contrary nature at work, I think sadly I’d be a goodie. I’m way too nice to people who don’t deserve it, spend too much time and energy on so-called friends who I don’t really care about. I don’t see any evil witches entertaining cronies they don’t like.

I love morally grey characters. I’m reading an amazing web series at the moment called Worm,it’s insanely long but the protagonist is wonderfully written, not exactly a villain or a hero by the end. Go read it, it’s worth it. The fight scenes can be a little long but I’m almost at the end! I’m also about to start reading Don’t Point That Thing At Me by Kyril Bonfiglioli which has been described as “an unholy collaboration between P.G. Wodehouse and Ian Fleming”; I started reading it the other day at work and the main character, Charlie Mortdecai is a grubby man but pretty hilarious all the same.

If I could pick which good guy I’d be, I’d rather be on the Mulan side of the scale of Disney princesses rather than Cinderella or Snow White. I don’t think I’d make a very good bad guy, I like bright colours too much (although there is always this guy, such a snappy dresser!)

Hairy’s the town drunk. (From the horse’s mouth, no lies). As my own summary, I’d like to be a slightly grubby good guy with a kick-ass musical number and a style that fries your retinas. I think this should be made into a comic.

Disney, dyeing and a distinct dearth of drama.

If you hadn’t noticed already, I’m blogging the alphabet. I’m totally blaming the letter ‘d’ for my writer’s block – that dastardly ‘d’! It’s really hard to write a ‘d’ themed post when there’s nothing ‘d’ related happening. For example, I could tell you about my new phone, an exciting web series I’m reading, or my most recent penchant for punishing exercise, but sadly not. None of those things start with ‘d’.
On the other hand, Disney totally does. And a Disney themed renaissance is most definitely occurring in my life right now, with an increase of those films being watched and also spending way too much time on sporcle testing my useless knowledge of Disney lyrics. Curse those middle verses!
Dyeing is pretty self explanatory. I have new hair; it’s a bit dark at the moment but I’m hoping it will lighten up a bit as it gets washed more. It’s being watched hawkishly as well so I have an idea of how long it takes to get to the perfect hue as this may well be one of the last times I dye my hair an an unmarried woman. THAT is a scary thought
Finally, as this is only a speedy update while I’m sat like a delinquent on the bus home after work, I’m pleased to report that although my life is a bit boring right now – no money and people away, it also means that ny life is blissfully drama free. Except for the standard wedding drama, of course.
It’s also drizzling, which is appalling weather for June.
If you blog, how do you find inspiration? Do you set or follow challenges? If not, favourite Disney and why?
