No but guys, GUYS, we need to talk about how important this scene is.  Because the commonly accepted lore about unicorns is that they are so good and pure that they’ll only appear to young virginal girls.  Because Molly Grue is a middle-aged woman who has been living with bandits for most of her life and is as far from innocent and virginal as you’re likely to get.  Because she’s so angry that this creature, embodying everything that society tells her she’s lost, everything she’s thrown away through her own choices, is here now when all that The Unicorn represents is long since behind her.  Because she knows, in a way that only someone who’s been steeped in an oppressive system her entire life can ever know, that she’s missed her chance and doesn’t deserve to be seeing a unicorn now.

And you know what?  The Unicorn doesn’t give two fucks about her virginity, about her supposed loss of innocence and purity.  She’s not repelled by Molly being older, being experienced, being a full human person.  None of that has ever mattered to unicorns, only to the people telling stories about them.  Not only does she step in to physically comfort her here, but before long this bandit’s wife becomes her friend, closer to her in most ways than Schmendrick.

This story is fucking revolutionary, you guys, and I just have a lot of feelings about it.

And in the book, after this scene, the trio runs into a maiden, a princess, who is young and beautiful and a virgin. She’s singing and doing all the things that supposedly will bring an unicorn to them, so she can prove that she’s pure and marry a prince. Schmendrick, Molly and the Unicorn remain hidden from their sight the whole time. So, when no unicorn comes, the princess gets up, dusts off her skirt and say that the formalities have been met, they can now marry. And she and her prince leave.

When Molly asks why the Unicorn didn’t go to the princess, the Unicorn replies that she doesn’t have time for that.

The Unicorn doesn’t have time to go to a princess who doesn’t really believe in her, but she had time earlier to comfort Molly, who’s belief in the Unicorn never faltered. 

Let’s remember too than before the scene pictured in the gif set the only ones who could recognize the Unicorn as a unicorn were animals, supernatural creatures, and Schmendrick and Mommy Fortuna. And the latter two are magic, so maybe they do count as supernatural creatures, which would make Molly the first normal human being to recognize the Unicorn as such in the course of the story.

Molly is a very special character and I love her deeply.

Eddie Izzard - shopping at Mac store in Soho
New York City - May 14, 2014

When I was a kid I saw his HBO special. I watched it so many times I still know most of the words.  It was the first time I saw a man dressed feminine, be funny, and not have women as a punch line. He didn’t slump out in front of the stage embarrassed by his clothing, he came out perfectly happy, hoping around, and didn’t do some silly feminine voice for laughs, he just used his voice, he wore his clothes, spoke about social injustice, and he was fucking funny. It was nice to watch a comedian and not be the fucking punch line or a flattened stereotype for laughs. 

Eddie Izzard is a treasure.

lol, a bunch of lipstick smears on the hand. I FEEL YOU EDDIE. i covered the entire back of my hand and part of my wrist once.

You have no idea how long I’ve waited for someone to STATE THE DAMN OBVIOUS

Tōrō nagashi (灯籠流し Tōrō = lantern / nagashi = cruise, flow) is a Japanese ceremony in which participants float paper lanterns down a river. This is primarily done on the last evening of the Bon Festival, festival based on the belief that this guides the spirits of the departed back to the other world. The white lanterns are for those who have died in the past year. Traditional Japanese beliefs state that humans come from water, so the lanterns represent their bodies returning to water.

Oh look, copperbadge, more corvid art.

I won’t lie, in the last couple of days I have encountered more crows and bees than I’m comfortable ascribing to random chance or confirmation bias. I’m trying to work out what the universe is telling me, because those are some above-and-beyond levels of mystic animal, but so far all I got is “crows and bees”.
