Look at the details! The dog bowl says ‘Loki’, and the license plate is “ASG4RD” or Asgard.
It’s cut off in the gif, but the mom’s coffee cup has a Stark label on it.
I still declare that the best part of this is that she’s a little girl cosplaying Thor. :3
I agree with the headcanon that Thor was just casually flying past at the time and saw this little girl and thought, “This young maiden wishes to emulate her hero. I SHALL ASSIST HER!” and then makes lighting shoot out of her hammer so that the car explodes and flies off with the biggest grin on his face.
In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.
Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.
Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.
And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.
How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies
How don’t you
There’s actually a lot of intact extensive lore on the seelie and unseelie fairie courts of medieval Europe, passed down through the generations by locals in the villages and other rustic folk.
So this doesn’t surprise me.
And I always thought it was rude that they didn’t invite her. It’s not like she’s a gauche bitch. She’s considered fey nobility, and conducts herself with the utmost decorum demanded by someone of her stature. Inviting her would have made people uncomfortable, but it wouldn’t have turned into anything seriously damaging.
If anything, I like how Maleficent started off enhancing the gifts the other fairies gave her but to show her spite, cursed Aurora to expire at a young age, therefore rendering the gifts fleeting. It was only by a stroke of luck that Merryweather had not yet bestowed a gift and was able to redirect the curse to sleep as oppose to death.
In a way, they all owe Merryweather their thanks for saving Aurora’s life.
