Change your fate

Bit of a drive-by, as I do catch-up laundry (after clearing the BIRD'S NEST from our 25-feet-off-the-ground dryer vent) in preparation for VidCon packing; and also a bit behind the curve, because things have been bonkers (sooooo glad New Mom Coworker returns this coming week), but this could not pass without comment:

[On YouTube]

So, yeah. There I am, after a rather long and occasionally rainy day of killing zombies (for Nightmare on Chicago Street promo video purposes), scrolling mindlessly through Tumblr because, well, long day.

And. BAM.

I swear it took me two full minutes to process that I wasn't looking at some highly sophisticated fan mockup. Then my little fangirl head exploded.

Now, OUaT's track record with bringing in Yet More New Characters is... a tad spotty? But I'm still largely enjoying it, and I freely admit I'll forgive them a lot just for this particular casting bolt from the blue. Fingers crossed that it won't be necessary. :-)

I'd heard that the character was coming -- and so had purchased the DVD to finally get around to watching Brave before the next season premiere! -- but I had not noted the casting. Thank you for sharing!

I expect you're aware by now that it traverses emotional territory more potentially thorny for you than for many, as it centers on the daughter/mother relationship. But just in case, I wanted to make sure you're prepared. :-)

Thank you! I'm actually oddly unspoiled about the actual plot of Brave, for all the time that's passed.

It must be hard to sum up the plot pithily, because while I haven't been avoiding that knowledge, I never really picked it up. I know that there's content about women's roles and choices, and that the heroine has both parents, three brothers and a horse, and is an archer... and there's something about a bear... maybe a prophecy? ...and that's about it.

(When it first came out, I was on an extremely tight budget. After, I just somehow never got around to it.)

You're very welcome! The journey is often combative but ultimately lovely and illuminating and strengthening on both sides. What I said at the time was that it's a must for anyone who's been mother to a teenage daughter or teenage daughter to a mother. I don't know what it will be like for a daughter who didn't get teen years with her mother, but some sort of pang seems likely if not inevitable. <3

Deja vu -- I must have read you say this at the time!

I will plan to save the movie for a high moment seeking entertainment, and avoid it in a low moment seeking comfort, just in case.
