About her silvern shoulders two musky black tresses curl,encircling them with their ends as though they were links in a chair.(Shahnama 1:21-3)
It was this description and Rudaba’s physical beauty that initially attracted Zal. Rudaba also consulted her ladies-in-waiting about Zal. Zal came to the walls of Rudaba’s palace where Rudaba let down her tresses to Zal as a rope and he immediately climbed from base to summit. Rudaba seated Zal on the roof and they both talked to each other which was unacceptable according to Persian tradition. x
Talking about that, by the way: one of my favorite tales to tell is the Persian legend of Zal and Rudaba, which is generally seen as the earliest known version of the Rapunzel tale (also known as AaTh 310 for those folklorically inclined). The whole story is utterly fascinating (trying not to go off on a fangirlish tangent here), but my favorite part is the classical image: when the lady, Rudaba, lets down her long (black!) braid from her balcony, the hero just kisses the braid and says: “I wouldn’t hurt you, I brought a rope.” Hell yeah. x
wait did hook just use his hook as a mustache for one of the dwarves?
if someone has a gif of that show me please?
//Oh really? He wasn’t a villain? He wasn’t a villain when he stole Aurora’s heart for his own gain? When he shot Belle for his revenge against Rumpelstiltskin? Or when he left Emma, Snow, Mulan & Aurora in the jail cell? Or when he kidnapped Regina to help destroy Storybrooke? Or when he sold Bae out to Peter Pan? Or when he was pretty much responsible for Henry’s kidnapping to begin with? (Not to mention that he’s never even apologized for ANY of these things. Granted, he semi-apologized for the stealing Aurora’s heart one, but not to her personally.)
You’re right…. What was I thinking…. He’s ALWAYS been a nice guy/hero. And Emma TOTALLY thinks he’s a great guy. And they’ll get married and have babies together.
This version of Hook is a ridiculous embarrassment. And the Neverland arc is a complete waste of all the Neverland characters. All it is, is a background for the Charmingstiltskin family and all their fucking drama. JM Barrie is more than certain to be rolling in his grave right now at how much the OUAT writers have butchered the Neverland story. Especially Peter Pan and Hook.
THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH! Sure I am all for soft Killian once in a while, but in my opinion he was best at playing a good fucking ass villian.
"You need to be punished"
Yeah I can’t take that seriously.
OH MY GOD WENDY AND JOHN AND MICHAEL AND BALEFIRE AND ASDFGHJKL;
AM I CRYING B/C REGINA HAS NO ONE?
Was he also the one who would host parties only to kill a guest and make everyone watch? Or am I thinking of someone else.
yeah a boyfriend sounds nice but a supreme enemy you can make out with sometimes in secret sounds a lot more hardcore
