No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.

This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.

Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.

We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.

Morgana & Guinevere: The Movie

After months of working with Morgana to overthrow Uther, Guinevere is caught, accused of treason, and sentenced to death. Morgana isn’t about to let her go without a fight -and neither is Arthur.

Outside, the executioners block was being made ready for tomorrow’s execution. Morgana knew she should be at least a little comforted because at least Gwen wasn’t to be burnt. She’s not. How could she?

There is a knock on the door to her chambers.

Morgana doesn’t answer. She needs a plan, not company.

“Morgana?” Arthur calls through the door. “Morgana, let me in.”

Morgana doesn’t answer. If he doesn’t know she’s there, he’ll go away.

Arthur knocks again. “Morgana, stop being stubborn and open the door. I have a plan to make Uther release Gwen.”

Morgana manages to stop herself from running to the door for a whole three seconds.

Gwen. She could save Gwen.

"And I know Fuck is a bad word, but it sounds so good.
Good, like flipping off the preacher
whenever he forgets that Eve was Adam’s teacher,
‘cause apples are fucking healthy you patriarchal piece of shit."
