In medieval culture, an event like a royal christening is not a private party; it’s the public social event of the year. To not invite any person of rank to such an event is a deadly insult.

Maleficent is certainly someone you wouldn’t want at a party, but she’s also someone powerful enough that only a fool would ever dare treat her with such blatant disrespect. The only way the King and Queen could possibly have gotten away with not inviting Maleficent was to not invite any of the fairies at all; inviting the other fairies and excluding her is explicitly taking sides in the conflict between the fairy factions.

Which means they made themselves her sworn enemies, and she responded by treating them as such from then on. If you actually get into analyzing the social dynamics of the scene, it’s very clear that Maleficent was willing to show mercy at first by giving the King and Queen a chance to apologize for their disrespect to her. She doesn’t curse Aurora until after she gives them that chance and they throw it back in her face with further disrespect.

And yeah, if the King and Queen had done the properly respectful thing and invited her, Maleficent would have given Aurora a scary awesome present. Moreover so would the other fairies, because at that point both sides would be using it as an opportunity to show off and one-up each other. What they gave her before Maleficent showed up was basically just trivial party favors by fairy standards.

How do you know so much about the social dynamics of medieval fairies

I strongly disagree with anyone who says Maleficent isn’t the best Disney villain. No singing, no dancing, no long expositions about her plans, no tolerance for bumbling comedy sidekicks (she electrocutes a whole room full of minions when she finds out they’ve fucked up and spent the last few years searching for a baby), just outright malicious intent.
I mean let’s take a look at her motivations compared to other popular Disney villains:SCAR - Wanted to become King. 
URSULA - Wanted to rule the seas.
WICKED QUEEN - Wanted to rule as the most beautiful woman in the land.
JAFAR - Wanted to rule in the Sultan’s place and/or obtain ultimate power.
Maleficient, by contrast, didn’t want any of that. She didn’t want more power. She didn’t want fame. She didn’t want to rule. She just wanted to raise hell. This is the woman who decided that every newborn child in the kingdom should die and that the land should be covered in darkness for one reason - SHE WASN’T INVITED TO A MOTHERFUCKING PARTY.
That’s right, the evil bitch basically condemned an entire kingdom to die at her hands because she didn’t get invited to a christening.
This is not a woman with a motivation. She cannot be reasoned with. Her actions cannot be rationalized. She is evil for the fun of being evil, not because she wants something.
THAT, my friends, is the ultimate villain. One who knows they’re evil and LOVES it.

catsandfairies replied to your post: Note: not actually math.

I have no idea who that is, but now I’m thinking about Maleficent and Sebastian having a child.

Peter Hale is a villain from Teen Wolf. I did a post about him a few days ago, that was spoilerific, but I don’t know how much sense it made if you didn’t know the show.

I…I tried not to think about the Maleficent/Sebastian angle, actually, just combining character traits and-

Huh. No. That actually makes sense.

Suddenly remembering the way she totally creeped on Riku in Kingdom Hearts. And had Prince Phillip chained up. And yeah, yeah, Sebastian being a teenager wouldn’t even give her a moment’s pause and-

WHY AM I THINKING THIS. because it’s amazing that’s why

Note: not actually math.

Maleficent + Sebastian Smythe = Peter Hale.

Maleficent turns into a dragon, Sebastian Smythe had the Slushie Incidents, and Peter Hale’s a rather nasty werewolf. Meanwhile, the rest of the time they’ve got the whole Suave And Totally Evil vibe going on.

Sometimes the Disney villains plot evil schemes together.

So…Kingdom Hearts One? okay this isn’t the exact lineup from that but still
