Tam Lin: A Summary
Everyone: Don’t go to Carterhaugh; there’s some guy named Tam Lin living there and he’s hella territorial.
Janet: I’m doing the thing because fuck you that’s why
Tam Lin: Dude did you just come prancing in here and pick a double rose from my rosebush
Janet: Why yes I did. I’ve been a naughty, naughty girl
Janet: So you should punish me *wink, nudge*
Janet’s father’s knights (she was a princess this whole time by the way): omg Janet did you get yourself pregnant?
Knights: IT WAS TOTALLY MINE SO NOW YOU HAVE TO MARRY ME AND I GET TO BE KING HAHAHAHAHA
Janet: WELL YOU’RE ALL OLD AND I HOPE YOU DIE HORRIBLY. I WILL HAVE LOVE CHILDREN WITH ANYONE I WANT BUT NOT YOU
The king: Janet honey seriously though are you preggers?
Janet: BITCH I MIGHT BE
Janet: OH AND THE FATHER IS A FEY KNIGHT WITH A BADASS HORSE SO I WIN
AND SHE’S AWAY TO CARTERHAUGH AS FAST AS SHE COULD HIE ETC.
Janet: Yeah starting to rethink the wisdom of this whole “having a baby out of wedlock in medieval Scotland” thing. Where does the Abortionweed grow again?
Tam Lin: Y u kill our bby?
Janet: Hey no uterus or financial support no opinion
Tam Lin: But…but…true love!
Janet: This is not Once Upon A fucking Time man
Tam Lin: Okay so here’s what you have to do. The fairy queen kidnapped me, but you can beat her when the fairies ride out on Halloween. You just have to pull me down off the white horse
Tam Lin: And not let go
Tam Lin: While she changes me into a bunch of snakes and lions and wild swans and a flaming sword
Tam Lin: And then she’ll turn me into myself but naked
Janet: Where do I sign up?
SO THEN SHE GOES TO THE CROSSROADS ON HALLOWEEN AND DOES THE THING
The fairy queen: Tam Lin, if I had known you’d pull this shit, I’d have turned your eyes to stone. And your heart. And your dick.
SO BASICALLY JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE DOING WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT AND BULLDOZING THROUGH EVERY OBSTACLE. IT’LL ALWAYS END WELL.
