will you marry me = a marriage proposal
will, you, Mary, me = a foursome proposal
Will you, Mary me = Cavewoman Mary helps Will recover from his Amnesia
Will, you marry me. = Will’s time-traveling partner
And people keep trying to tell me that punctuation isn’t important

me everytime a character in a movie has to get a few drops of their blood for some ritual bullshit (via jtoday)
WHILE WE’RE AT IT, why do people try to cross those skinny bridges over lava/chasms/whatever by walking upright. IT’S CALLED CENTER OF GRAVITY. get on your hands and knees and crawl across that thing. HUG IT. SCOOT YOUR BUTT ACROSS. “but i look stupid!” lalalala but we’ll avoid that ~dramatic moment~ where you almost fall over and die because your damn fucking self wanted to look COOL
OKAY BUT LIKE ORIGINAL QUOTE THO can i just
there’s a thing called “artistic license” when it comes to things like that, and also “symbolism”
so okay if it was just coz you need a source for your blood so you can put some in something for a ritual yes okay i uNDERSTAND B U T
THE WHOLE PALM THING IS BOTH SYMBOLIC AND PRACTICAL OTHERWISE
in the philippines that ritual is called “sanduguuan” - literally “one blood” (“isa” or “isang” or “isahan” being the ONE part, and “dugo” being the word for “blood”), and in our history it was used by chiefs of our native tribes in their first negotiations with our spanish conquerors. it wasn’t just a cool way to say “hey welcome to the country.” it was two people slicing their OPEN PALMS and joining them to symbolize the beginning of a truce or a mutual understanding, especially of trade. an open palm in some contexts - definitely in this one - connotes giving and receiving; you can’t expect to give anything from a closed fist, nor can you receive anything in a closed fist. and it’s not like you can give or receive this with the back of your arm or your leg can you
and practicality-wise in the context of making a blood compact, imagine two people or a group of people making a promise to each other that cannot be broken on pain of death and instead of palms - which can be reached out to each other and therefore gives space between people - they instead rub the back of their sliced open forearms
"but okay they can do it with their legs or feet if you’re talking about the space"
imagine it, go ahead, i dare you(via mangocianamarch)
