Now when spectre haunts or dragon flames, or ogre attacks, or gryphon descends, Bamarre fights on, and the timid march with the strong. The tailor, the cook, the farmer, the queen — from village, from field, from castle, from wood — Bamarre, land of heroes, fights on. Step follows step, hope follows courage. Set your face toward danger, set your heart on victory: VICTORY FOR BAMARRE!

They tugged his hair with their hands, put their feet upon his back and rolled him about, or they took a hazel-switch and beat him, and when he growled they laughed. But the bear took it all in good part, only when they were too rough he called out, “Leave me alive, children, Snowy-white, Rosy-red, will you beat your lover dead?” (x)

ladies who should be playing mythical head bitches in charge | ROMOLA GARAI as SIGYN, the wife of loki, the goddess who stayed by his side through the passing of millenia in the dark depths of the earth, and lived to see her husband’s ragnarok.
The sound of dripping venom is the only movement in the dank cave, the hissing beast itself the only thing that seems, on quieter days, truly alive. Shhh, my love, she whispers, and her husband screams when she tips the venom from the bowl, he writhes and twists in the bonds of their son’s innards. Shh, my love. She pats his fevered forehead, averts her eyes from his ruined flesh, and gazes upwards, past the coiled serpent, past its giant scaled body, to the very heights of Valhalla. Oh, you shall pay, she thinks. You gods will tremble at the might of what will come. It will make you weak, o lords, how cruel we can be. She waits, sitting by her husband’s side, quietly patient and patiently scheming, gardening the fall of the gods. The end, when it comes, is as much hers as it is her husbands.

“It always looks darkest just before it gets totally black.” Struggling to cope with the loss of his life-long friend and pet, Charlie Brown’s (Thieriot) high school experience has been as much of a downer as his childhood. His best friend, Linus (Lerman), is too busy obsessing over graduating early to get into the seminary to help Charlie with his problems; his sister, Sally (Osment), is boy-crazy and fundamentally worthless; his ex-girlfriend, Patty (Stone) is now an activist for whatever cause crosses her path; even his childhood pal, Marcy (Winstead), has abandoned her dorky past for pom-poms and now shuns her former friends. The only person left for him to turn to is his former enemy, Lucy (Fonseca), still hell-bent on becoming a psychiatrist. But maybe in this ocean of blackness, Charlie can find a glimmer of happiness before it’s too late.
The I d y l l s (or, that arthurian epic i’m owed that doesn’t suck, goddammit)EVA GREEN as Morgan le Fay: half sister of Arthur Pendragon, high priestess of the Isle of Avalon, last serving faithful of the Triple Goddess, long-time confidante of Guinevere the Fair, the fated enchantress of the emerald isle.
TOM HIDDLESTON as King Arthur: the son of Uther Pendragon, educated in Rome, the center of the civilized world, who returned to the scattered lordships of Britain and sought to craft an empire. After defeating the invaders from the sea, he built shining Camelot, hoping to unite all of England under one flag and one faith, only to find his sister turned against him.
SOPHIE TURNER as Queen Guinevere: the daughter of Leodegrance, descended from a Roman patrician family and promised to Arthur since her birth, educated by Morgan on the Isle of Avalon and fated as the Helen of her age.
ELYES GABEL as Lancelot du Lac: long-time confidante of Arthur and the most prominent knight of the Round Table, pledged faithful and lover of his Queen Guinevere. His declaration of war tears Camelot apart.
Arthur forges his kingdom out of shining white and gold and Pendragon red, a city of innocence and chivalry and knights who would pray before they slit your throat - what good is it, when it comes down to it? What good can a city of pure white really do, when the Fates have had their say and the goddess have turned her eyes of death upon you? He was building a city that was fated to be burned away, a city forged on the principles that his beloved Romans had used so well and thrown away, Pax Arcturus - peace under Arthur, peace under tyranny. She could spit at it, could gouge her fingers into the eyes of the boy that she had once knew so well. A city of white can only ever be stained. A man like that was born to be killed. Her Gwen will tear him apart from inside, and Morgan will burn his faith to the ground.
I cannot die while Cersei lives, he told himself. We will die together as we were born together.
