30 Day Disney Challenge: Day Eight

Day Eight: Your favorite villain

Maleficent. I feel there is more I should say. I keep starting a post trying to express my admiration and explain the affect she had on my development as a sociopath. I don’t think that needs saying, though. Most of my friends understand how awesome she is (or at least nod and agree with me out of trepidation).

She wasn’t lavishly greedy or self-absorbed about her appearance. She carried out plans that were out of an inherent desire to cause suffering. She was good at waiting and played to the weaknesses of her foes. And all that because she wasn’t invited to a party. You see what happens when you snub the Mistress of All Evil?

By the by, I was excited to see all the Disney villains in Kingdom Hearts (1 and 2), but I flipped my shit when I saw she was there and, essentially, the one in control. She earned some damn respect in a group that even included a god (Hades).

Not to mention, she wins most epic battle:

Since Sleeping Beauty came out long before I was born, I’m not sure when I first saw it. It was probably shortly after it came out on VHS. Around then (per the Wikipedia page) I would have been 4 or 5. Apparently (per my dad’s account) when I first saw it I stood up and pointed at her shouting, “I DON’T LIKE THAT WOMAN!” In time I changed. It’s all about patience, right Maleficent?
