#okY BUT CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS?#can we talk about how#maleficent#doesn’t lie to aurora?#how she doesn’t try to justify her actions or tell her that Aurora doesn’t understand?#she hurt Aurora and instead of trying to tell Aurora she’s not justified in her anger#Maleficent acknowledges that Aurora has a RIGHT to her anger and betrayal and lets her be#CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS?#because Maleficent HAD her reasons maybe not a justification but a reason#IF MALEFICENT HAD BEEN A MAN DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY FUCKING MOVIES AND PEOPLE WOULD HAVE BEEN ALL#UUUGH STUPID AURORA HOW DARE YOU BE ANGRY#BUT NO#THIS FUCKING MOVIE IS SO SMART#it doesn’t invalidate the harm that was done to Aurora#just because harm was done to Maleficent#I AM GONNA SEE THIS MOVIE 100 TIMES IF I HAVE TO NO FUCKING REGRETS
#yeah it’s archetypally Good at the whole hero AND villain thesis #maleficent fucked up she knows she fucked up #she did harm to an innocent girl like harm was done to her when she was an innocent girl #and the movie tells that narrative; so brings us on maleficent’s journey and we understand why she goes as dark as she does #but it doesn’t excuse the harm she does to aurora; and she doesn’t either #but other elements of what she does that are ‘dark’ that are rooted in self-protection or the protection of the moors #aren’t judged in the same way #just this one rageful unforgiveable act of harm to an innocent #which she then risks everything to make right #which makes her a hero; but also doesn’t negate the villainy of what she did #and then once it’s made right; and the root cause of the evil (the divide between kingdoms) is rooted out #via aurora #maleficent is free of the narrative; free to fly once again like she did before evil was done to her #so she goes back into the clouds and flies; and is fae and fickle and free (if not innocent) once again #the narrative will haunt her; and make her into a villain; which is no more or less than what she deserves #but she herself will be free of the evils and obligations of the narrative now that she’s lived it and corrected the evils she wrought #in turn
