The Wicked + The Divine Ascensions [1/?]: Persephone
“We meet again, Persephone
I’ve missed you”
#it’s strange to thing back and realise this incredibly charged scene was their introduction #no flash backs #no explanations #no descriptions #no ‘well as you know’ exposition #it’s just 2 very very subtle actors with decade of experience and a very spare very short scene #but you KNOW #you KNOW IMMEDIATELY #you know a) these two have oceans of history between them #b) they hold diametrically opposed viewpoints #c) they have probably tried to kill each other at some point #d) they retain enough loyalty to an earlier version of their friendship that they talk amiably about that fact #e) you know shits going to hit the fan as a result of their opposition but you know they cannot do otherwise #and f) they both regret it in a way #THISE SCENE GOES FOR ABOUT 25 SECONDS #you get a cast iron sense of their dynamic with no backstory AT ALL (harrietvane)
grow weary of your husband’s neglect. tell tales to the servants and your companions of his violence and brutality. disappear into the night without even your trusted maidservant. spill the blood of a chicken on the floor of your husband’s studiolo. create panic, as your chastity, virtue and the nobility of your blood is well known. your letters telling of your fear and panic are found and read. flee to the villa of one of your suitors before your marriage. he is still charmed by you. make him promise to hide and shelter you. you have brought your jeweled dagger with you. open his throat. stagger onto the road, telling of your violation and pain. all of italy is in a frenzy at the actions of this cur. return home. your husband will see his peasant concubine no more. finally prepare for the birth of an heir.
this is literally just gone girl, and for that i love it
