WHY DO THEY ALWAYS SLICE THEIR PALM TO GET BLOOD. do you know how many nerve endings are in your hand?!?! why don’t they ever cut the back of their arm or their leg or something omfg

me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit  (via jtoday)

WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL

(via jtoday)

and stop yanking IV lines out of your arms the minute you wake up in the hospital

That is a broadsword, why are you fencing with it

There is a freaking door right there. Stop smashing through windows, damn it.

yes, mr. action hero, I am aware that running dramatically from the baddies at breakneck speed is important, but know what else is important? NOT GETTING SHOT. RUN IN A FUCKING ZIGZAG PATTERN ON THE OFF CHANCE THAT THE MOOKS WERE NOT COACHED IN MARKSMANSHIP BY THE IMPERIAL STORMTROOPERS.

Oh, hey, you there, sneaky hero-type breaking into any place for any reason? WEAR SOME FUCKING GLOVES. They’re called fingerprints, dumbass. You have them and you’re putting them all over the fucking place.

If something really fucking huge is falling on you, don’t FUCKING RUN ALONG THE LENGTH JUST TAKE LIKE TWO FUCKING STEPS TO THE SIDE

He is, however, perfectly willing to fuck with time and reality.
And also steal your infants.

He didn’t steal anything. She literally asked him to take the baby. Don’t make him the bad guy just because she was a shitty sister.

I think you are severely misinformed as to how baby ownership works.
It was not her baby to give.
David Bowie is unquestionably the villain.

Which do you think existed first, modern custody legislature, or the goblin king? 
The girl was entrusted by her parents with the care and custody of the child. By the laws governing the goblin king and his transactions, the girl was the current rightful owner of the child and made a deal with the king to take the child. Perhaps you’re not familiar with english folklore. Fae have rules, they’re tricksters, they can be sneaky, but they never break the rules.

Slammin’ it down in the Labyrinth fandom tonight, kids.

Children, children. Yes, he was playing by the rules, and yes, he gets to be the villain. In lit crit, you get to have your cake and eat it too!
And then run away from it when it turns into a whirling tunnel cleaner death machine.
That analogy got away from me a bit. And is now chasing me down a hallway brb

OH MY GOD are people really getting buttmad about calling David Bowie in Labrynth the villain
sure, she asked him to take the baby, but she clearly didn’t know that fairies were like, a real thing? and he could have just NOT TAKEN THE BABY, he could have done that. Christ. “Abloobloobloo fae have laws” what a nerd. He’s the villain. It’s a MOVIE. IT’S A KIDS MOVIE. HE’S THE VILLAIN. 

We have laws too! And this is clearly an unconscionable contract because Sarah is a) probably a minor and b) completely unaware that she is actually entering into a contract! You can’t actually make a contract with someone when you have reasonable grounds to believe that they don’t exist.
Who was it I was talking with a while back about fae lawyers? I’m pretty sure any fae lawyer worth their salt could get judgment for the plaintiff in the Unseelie Supreme Court.
I understand that this is contrary to the spirit of missv’s entirely valid “it’s a kids’ movie you nerds” point, but I’m not averse to fighting nerd with nerd.

Point A is correct.  She is 15 at the time of the events that happened.
However, point B?  It can be safe to assume that while she was not sure Jareth existed, she knew of his existence.
" A pan of Sarah’s room at the start of the film shows that she has a number of children’s books on her shelves, including The Wizard Of Oz, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and Maurice Sendak’s Outside Over There. The reading material shown in Sarah’s room indicates that she has a love of fairy-tales and fantasy, a trait that is also suggested by the fact she is first seen rehearsing a play in pseudo-medieval costume."
"Prior to encountering Jareth directly, Sarah knows him solely as a character in the play The Labyrinth. When she first comes face to face with him, she is terrified and begs him to return her brother…"
So with the above in mind, she has a clue about how contracts with fae beings work, if only from having read about them extensively.

I found a place where people take Jim Henson movies more seriously than I do.
Tumblr is a wonderful, terrifying place.

As a crossover, “SuperWhoLock” does nothing for me.
"Doctor’s Guide to Red Dwarf" is where it’s at.

No one understands me when I freak out when people don’t use it. I will show them this to prove my point.
