Sleeping Beauty is an enduring tale of star-crossed lovers and overcoming adversity, right?
Well if you thought that, you'd be wrong, oh so very wrong.
You may think it is merely about the happenstance of Princess Aurora falling for Prince Phillip, but believe me, behind this cutesy facade is evidence of a three-way war that shook the Earth for millennia.
The secrets I have uncovered in this innocent-seeming story will blow your mind, shattering every preconception you may have had about this otherwise mundane tale of narcolepsy and questionable consent.
Read on for part one of my two-part post to find out more!
First of all, I shall start with the obvious: Maleficent isn't a simple fairy, she is quite obviously a member of the ancient and powerful green dragonflight, able to bend plants and even animals to her will as well as being possessed of immense magical power.
How do we know this? Well, it's obvious: her horns.
Here's Maleficent in all her humanoid glory:
|would you do me? I'd do me.|
It's telling that she's the only one of the "fairies" with horns like that, which are generally shared by only one other race I've heard of -- the dragons!
Case in point, Alexstrasza the Life Binder:
|so very horny -Ed|
Now yes, yes, Alexstrasza is the Aspect of the red dragonflight, but the horns are the key.
Still don't believe me? Well, straight out of the wiki, the green dragonflight are said to be:
...highly intelligent and always striving to learn more about the world they were entrusted to protect, fretting out the mysteries of creation and life—but keeping all such secrets hidden within the Emerald Dream. They spend their time there interacting with creatures of myth and illusion.which matches up perfectly with her ability to grow and manipulate thorns, to control minions and also her ability with fairies... othertimes called elves. Yes, that was a common mistake, calling elves, pixies, boggarts and all sorts as "fairies", but believe me, they're all different.
Maleficent herself is obviously a high elf, though of course sporting the horns as befits her rank as the protector of whatever roughly mid-european kingdom she inhabited.
Maleficent has dragonsworn working for her, which show up not only as her crow, but also as her other troll/ogre minions... and other fairies. I'll get back to the importance of this later.
At the end of the movie, we see her trying her best to fight against the evil humans and their ecological destruction, but failing through a mixture of bad luck and vampire ingenuity.
When she finally takes on her true, draconic form, it is too late and she is vanquished. We can only hope she survived in the Emerald Dream and will one day return to save our planet. Good night, sweet queen...
|green eyes, green breath, the horns... yup, green dragonflight. nuff said.|
What was that? You didn't know there were vampires in Sleeping Beauty? Really? How could you have missed them! I'll bet you didn't even know about the gargoyles either, huh?
The gargoyles are easiest, I shall demonstrate. First of all, you need to have seen the expose cleverly hidden as the movie called "I, Frankenstein". In it, we learn that at least some gargoyles can turn fully human. I'll also get back to this later, but for now, the interesting piece of data is the sacred crest of the gargoyles as displayed in "I, Frankenstein":
Now for the expose, we get the correct image, but of course for the kiddy version designed to hide the truth except for the few smart enough to figure it out, we get a slightly deformed version. Voila! Check out the tablecloth!
Yes, that's right, King Stefan (the thin one) is protected by the sacred gargoyle order, as we know gargoyles are wont to do from, where else, Disney's Gargoyles.
King Stefan and Queen Leah are the hosting dignitaries, and it is their daughter who has been missing for the last sixteen-ish years. King Hubert is the visiting dignitary, with his (probably adopted) son Prince Phillip. We can tell Phillip is adopted because Phillip... is a soulless ginger vampire!
I'll leave you this time contemplating such a bombshell of a cliffhanger, as I'll be back in a later post to explain it all!
