Black DressBoobs in 1x07 - an appreciation post
reverse hades/persephone, where the young daughter of summer uses plant magic to ensnare the lord of darkness and keep him prisoner in a beautiful garden above ground. Eventually, enchanted by her cleverness and wild youth he agrees to eat six pomegranate seeds and stay with her for half of every year.
# ID READ THE FUCK OUT OF THAT # HE TRIES BEING ALL IMPOSINGLY MIGHTY AND WRATHFUL WHILE PERSPHONE JUST GOES ON WATERING THE FLOWERS OUTSIDE HIS CAGE # HE PETITIONS TO AT LEAST GET SOME DEATHBELL AND NIGHTSHADE AND ASPHODEL GROWING IN THERE BUT IT’S ALL LOTUSES AND SUNFLOWERS AND APPLES # AND LIKE CORN EVERYWHERE HE FUCKING HATES CORN # THEY COMPROMISE ON POMEGRANATES (x)
It would, of course, have the same issues regarding consent that regular Hades/Persephone has…but given that I’m a sucker for all sorts of variants on that myth, I’m a sucker for this.
In case you’re in need of motivation, have some from the Doctor.
You can do it!
This is my kingdom and I will fight for it.

I do like period dramas. Especially if they’re good stories. It’s more the story than the period that matters. I guess if you kept doing them you might find yourself saying, “Oh, not again.” Some actresses must think, “Not another bonnet!” You could get into a rut.
