So I just finished The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 5…
Best lesson from a Disney movie
This is an underrated movie
This is a grossly underrated movie.
Can I take a minute to rant? Good. Cuz I’m gonna.
I FLOVE this movie. And I HATE all the stupid hatred it gets. For a long time the buzz was “finally a black princess yay!” and now everyone is like “Fuck this movie, first black princess and she spends the whole movie a frog.”
You know what? Fuck that. Because Ariel spent a good majority of the movie not talking. Mulan spent the majority of the move pretending to be a man. Aurora and Snow White? Asleep (Hardly in the movie at all). They’re all just plot devices, not designed to take away from the traits of the women.
And you know what else? Unlike some of the other princesses, Tiana is in control of her destiny every step of the way. When she turns into the frog does she lose hope and need rescuing? Hell naw. She busts Naveen over the head and gets the job done. She is consistently responsible and capable even after having her dreams crushed and turning into a freaking frog.
So don’t tell me that Tiana is “less than” just because she gets turned into a frog. She’s still one of the most hardworking, badass, and capable chicks in animated history and I love her like crazy cakes.
Also? She’s based on a real person. A real woman who is 91 and is still cooking in her kitchen. She’s still widely respected in the culinary community, she’s fed presidents, she’s had songs written about her and her restaurants. She’s 91, and she still wakes up every morning to run things, because she still believes in hard work and good food. And if you don’t think that’s truly fantastic, then you can just fuck right off.
William and Emma meet again - Victorian Romance Emma
This is a superb Seinen manga. Not only is the artwork stunning, but the storyline is so simple, yet so well written. It takes place in late 19th century England (perhaps 1895) and is about a maid and wealthy young man who fall in love, despite difference in social classes.
It is very historically researched, the detail is perfect; characters, traits and lifestyles are reflective of the time, and all 10 volumes (the last is an extra that completes the story) are very well paced, and keeps the story moving.
This is one of the best romance mangas I have ever read, and one of the best mangas period.
If you’re sick of unrealistic mangas with immature, annoying teenagers and petty, silly conflicts not worth the time of day - this is for you. Do yourself a favor and read it, and also check out the author’s other work - A Bride’s Story. Another great, ongoing tale.
Do you ever just look at this fandom’s obsession with Marco Bodt and just think: "Why?"
Marco Bodt is life
gamer nerds are so dramatic
I strongly encourage everyone to check out the tweet and marvel at nerds’ anguished realization that their heroes do not all share their insular mutated worldview
I wanted to draw this for a while but kept forgetting :c
mega altaria was everything I could have ever hoped for— altaria with more fluff
*is in the manga section of the bookshop* *sees another person* HAHA! what a nerd
The BBC series Doctor Who ended in 2010. It was replaced by a show called Doctor Who Cares Now That Steven Moffat’s in Charge. The title of the latter show is often shortened for the sake of brevity. This has caused much confusion amongst viewers with many believing that the two series are one and the same.
