"And we swagger because we do not know how to part with our rage, which we cherish and press cutting close, but we learn to swagger — or rather, we’re swaggered, briefly, while the wind blows and things burn and our hands are full — because we know it darkly all the same."

↳ Hierarchy of Angels:01. Seraphim: a type of celestial or heavenly beings in the Abrahamic religions. Literally “burning ones”, the word seraph is normally a synonym for serpents when used in the Hebrew Bible. They are the highest angelic class and serve as the caretakers of God’s throne and continuously shout praises: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!” According to Isaiah 6:2, the Seraphim have six wings: “with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew”.
OFF WITH YOUR HEAD (a mix for the red queen of hearts, a ruthless woman king, consumed by rage and passion who wanted the whole world her way and no one else’s)

“You know why the story’s always the same, seventeen years gone?
Because it only went down the one way.”
I, mother of all Nature and mistress of the elements, first-born of the ages and greatest of powers divine, queen of the dead, and queen of the immortals, all gods and goddesses in a single form … (The Metamorphoses of Apuleius, Book XI)
✧: ”We [costume designer Jacqueline Durran and I] talked about themes an awful lot, which is this idea that [Anna] is a bird caught in a cage. She’s surrounded by death. The birds’ wings, the birds can’t fly. They’re dead; they’re stuck at back of her head. The veils are cages.” — Keira Knightley.
But I am your servant. When you starve I will feed you; when you are sick I will tend you. I crawl at your feet; for before your love, your kisses, I am debased. For you alone I will be weak.
