What is the wildest thing you saw on the panel this afternoon?
"Ahh, I saw a little Thorin. Our Thorin is in London right now doing a play. Richard is doing a play. And I saw this kid dressed up like Thorin. He had a little axe. He had a key and he had taken his mom’s makeup and drawn a beard on his face. I thought that was pretty sweet." [x]
"The archetype of the witch is long overdue for celebration. Daughters, mothers, queens, virgins, wives, et al. derive meaning from their relation to another person. Witches, on the other hand, have power on their own terms. They have agency. They create. They praise. They commune with nature/ Spirit/God/dess/Choose-your-own-semantics, freely, and free of any mediator. But most importantly: they make things happen. The best definition of magic I’ve been able to come up with is “symbolic action with intent" — “action" being the operative word. Witches are midwives to metamorphosis. They are magical women, and they, quite literally, change the world."
