Mount Koya Japon

Mount Kōya (高野山 Kōya-san) is a mountain in Wakayama prefecture to the south ofOsaka, Japan, primarily known as the headquarters of the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism.

First settled in 816 by the monk Kūkai as a retreat far away from the courtly intrigues of Kyoto, Mt. Koya is located in a 800m-high valley amid the 8 peaks of the mountain. The original monastery has grown into the town of Koya, featuring a university dedicated to religious studies and over 100 temples, many of which offer lodging to pilgrims.

In 2004, UNESCO designated Mt. Koya as part of a wider World Heritage Site

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness'

#I think the best bit about this #is the way John sort of stares for a second into space #as if he’s repeating that over in his head to make sure sherlock really said that #and then is just like #i mean really sherlock you’re so smart but you’re so dumb jesus #and lestrade looks like he’s biting down on something idk

I love that I don’t know who’s the sassy bitch in this scene.
