hey, remember my “the snow queen is milah’s sister" theory?
well, check this out. i was watching the cs movie again last night (leave me alone, i was conducting research for a fic) when i noticed something. that vase on the JR? like elsa’s vase. but look. the same but not exactly the same. the lids are different. killian even picks it up and looks at it all “wtf, familiar.
go google “chess pieces”. look at the queen and look at a pawn.
elsa is a pawn. for the snow queen. who is in the JR vase.
so, why does hook have it?
because it was milah’s. it’s her sister. her sister is the snow queen.
I’M STILL GOING WITH THIS THEORY, OKAY
The similarity between the vases was noted before, but that was immediately post-S3. I remember [crack]theories thinking it was Anna in a jar and that Elsa might target Hook for that reason.
We basically can tell now that Elsa is not the real baddie for 4A.
I can see the tie to Milah. Hook’s cabin on the Jolly Roger was filled with things that had a lot of sentimental value. There weren’t trinkets decorating the walls. That room had his brother’s old books, not treasure chests.
Okay I’m not going to go back through scenes in Hook’s cabin, but I generally remember it was kinda homey and not at all flashy. That threadbare, cozy blanket that Henry had tucked under his chin comes to mind.
So here is this nice fancy vase thing. But it isn’t on display. It’s off to the side, something that no one probably notices when they are in the cabin and that we only noticed because we watched Captain Swan: The Movie not nearly enough times.
Even pre-Emma!Hook isn’t really into blinging out. He has those necklaces and his rings, but he’s not swaggering around like Blackbeard with that plush red coat and that foppish hat.
Hook values little things. Like Milah’s self-portrait sketch on some scrap piece of paper. He’s sentimental, like how we saw when he kept Bagel’s kiddie-sized cutlass.
I think the vase might have a sentimental value too.
And if Milah went into the pirate’s life for the fun, she might have been the one to want that vase.
TREASURE AND (LEATHER-COVERED) BOOTY A PIRATE’S LIFE FOR MI[LAH]
Hook could have just sold that vase. It looks pretty valuable and it could certainly by a rum barrel or ten. But he keeps it.
Maybe because it has that sentimental value.
Maybe because Milah liked it because she had that urge to break bonds and get her pirate on.
At the end of the day, having a shot of Killy sneaking around the cabin with a vase that is just as in focus as his face and then seeing a similar vase at the end of the episode isn’t an accident.
The second vase has Elsa in it. Elsa has snow powers. We are led to believe nice sliver vases can contain people with snow powers.
I can see this as a solid theory.
I JUST WANT A MILAH/SNOW QUEEN CONNECTION
BECAUSE AGAIN LOOK AT FACES—
Sorry I just want it.
^this really speaks to me
STORY IDEA: YOUR DOOR BELL RINGS AND ITS A PERSON FROM AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE “I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE MY FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTER AND I KNOW HOW IT ENDS AND I WANNA CHANGE IT”
WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME
plot twist: the person who rings the doorbell is your favorite book character
So I’m going to the JASNA AGM with my mom.
We got dresses made for the ball.
That is my dress.

I AM SO EXCITED
the “you live with your parents” insult is really flaccid because a metric shitton of cultures don’t see “leave the house forever” as some grandiose moment of liberation that’s so important to the development of a person that it has to happen as fast as possible. until i came to the USA i didn’t know a single person who was pressured by their parents to leave the house because they’re “too old to stay there” or whatever. in puerto rico it is really common to stay with your parents until they and you are both stable enough that you can leave. whaddaya know, there are cultures that don’t place a stigma on being poor or wanting to care for your family or needing your family to care for you for some other reason.
Enjoying one of my favorite movies before I ramble through some antique stores today.
Raise your hand if you’re straddling the line between crippling anxiety and not giving any fucks about anything
Elle Woods was hollering back before the movement. This is why i love this movie. It’s so progressive. Elle is a femme feminist who comes by it the hard way. She doesn’t change for the bookish people, the elitists, or for the feminists. She just does what she needs to do, and what she wants, even when at first it was chasing a boy. Then the movie drops the romance. IT DROPS THE ROMANCE. chick flicks don’t do that. Emmett asking her out is a footnote at the very end. And this whole time, she is classy, and lady like, and has pride in herself and her work. She’ll go to a costume party as a playboy bunny, but like hell will she sleep with her professor for an internship. Elle is my feminist role model
I remember listening to my DAD defend Legally Blonde. An uncle was saying “Oh look, it’s that stupid movie again.” as he flipped through the channels. My dad responded with “Oh yeah, that movie where the blonde girl with great grades works really hard to get into pre-law, studies hard and proves herself to her peers and bosses while maintaining her integrity and not sleeping with her boss? What a terrible message to send girls.”
Also, I love this movie because Reese Witherspoon.
And don’t forget that she has serious female friends and wins the case by way of her specialist knowledge of so-called “feminine things” that no one else takes seriously enough to even bother with.
The movie also passes the Bechdel test.
LET’S NOT FORGET that even though it starts with a situation where two girls are rivals for the same guy, they BOTH choose to ignore the social codes (and hollywood bylaws) that tell them they should be cat-fighting and trying to one-up each other, and instead they realize that they make good working partners and better friends and screw rivalry, AND ALSO HAVE EACH OTHER’S BACKS RE: WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT. And that it portrays sororities as places where women can learn to work together and respect each other and help each other out, which sets the stage for the way Elle treats everyone she meets for the rest of the movie. OH AND IT HAS A FAT SIDE CHARACTER WHO OVERCOMES EMOTIONAL ABUSE, IS NEVER FAT-SHAMED OR USED AS THE BRUNT OF A FAT JOKE, AND LANDS THE HOTTEST MAN IN THE ENTIRE FILM.
Also, Elle still stays true to herself in a professional setting. Even when it’s tough for her, she always keeps being her bubbly, peppy self. She doesn’t let what others say about her stop her from being a kickass lawyer that also is unafraid to express herself how she wants to.
I have to rewatch this movie ASAP
Your dose of inspiration/motivation to keep you going. To my fellow WriMos; you can totally kick November’s butt! We can do this, no more excuses, or procrastinating (okay maybe a little, I mean who kidding) just go, go, go! And to everyone else, just take this and shape it to whatever your passion is and do it!
