She kissed her on the forehead.
She thought Aurora was going to be asleep for the rest of her life.
they want Aurora to be woken up by a man she talked to for like 5 minutes in the middle of the forest rather than the woman who raised and protected her her whole life(since the three other fairies were shitty when it came to keeping an eye on her and made her nearly fall off a cliff)
Maleficent also was nearly killed by the man she thought was her true love, she never trusted anyone again up until she met Aurora, who she still didn’t like in the beginning until she started talking and hanging out with her, playing with her and the other creatures, like whenever she was younger.
They even tried waking Aurora up with a kiss from the Prince, in which it did not work. Wanna know why? She knew the dude for 5 minutes. Compared to the relationship she had with basically her mother figure, that kiss was useless.
Besides, nothing would be wrong with lesbian love in the movie, what would be wrong with that? However, it was not indicated at all in this movie, it was was the beautiful “mother-daughter” relationship between Aurora and Maleficent, who truly made each other happy.
