I’ve been talking with these guys for a few years now (well Clare is a friend from school anyway (and is amazing) that’s why she’s on here despite her photoblog being a new) and gotten to know their talents and they’re just really friendly and lovely and I don’t know where I would be on this website without them. So here’s my shoutout of thanks :)
'Blood Brothers'. The Arts Centre Dunmow, June 2014.
This is where fandom angers me by mischaracterizing Jane Foster as some shy wilting flower with anime eyes clinging to Thor like a damsel in distress because EXCUSE ME
Jane Foster drove a fucking TRUCK into a LIGHTING STORM
Jane Foster broke a (as far as she knew) delusional, strange man out of a hospital to help him get his hammer back from a shitload of government agents
Jane Foster STAYED and HELPED EVACUATE CITIZENS after the Destroyer came for Thor
And that’s not even STARTING on the shit she pulled in Thor 2
Jane Foster is exactly the same off-the-cuff, zero-self-preservation, stubborn little shit as skinny!Steve was only she does it for SCIENCE instead of JUSTICE and if you don’t love Jane Foster I invite you to check yourself so hard
I just finished reading the best and most heartbreakingly beautiful pirate!lock and mer!john longfics I have ever read.
It was perfection. It is 3:10am, I have been finished for half an hour, and I have no words to convey just how much I love it.
reasons to love in the flesh: well-written female characters
Did I tell anyone the story about how my friend’s rat (Tom) ate her other rat’s (Jerry’s) head while she was away on holiday?
Tom literally ate Jerry’s head.
The cartoon would have been a lot different if T&J weren’t playing an elaborate game of cat & mouse.
I HAVEN’T UPDATED THAT FANFIC IN FIVE YEARS WHY ARE YOU STILL ADDING IT TO YOUR FOLLOW LIST YOU NUMPTIES
Yeah and the inside guy in a robbery isn’t forcing anyone to rob a bank but he still opens the door for them
Obligatory ten past eleven tea selfie.
Hey this one I’m actually happy with.
GIFSET: Contrasted human behaviour with animal behaviour (one was a bicycle and the contrast was a shark swimming through the ocean). The caption mentioned something about humans and animals not being so different.
Photoset: Closeup picture of freckles on someone’s back contrasted next to a picture of space/stars, saying about patterns in the universe.
I’m looking at structures and under that heading I’m exploring the subtopic of repeating patterns and maths throughout the universe (so golden ratio, fractals etc.)
I can’t seem to find them despite knowing I’ve reblogged them at some point in the past few months.
If you can help please direct me to a link, obligatory question mark to get answers?
Can I just say that I think this is the way Mulan should appear int the parks. In the beginning of the movie they make it very clear that the dress she wears to meet the matchmaker is not comfortable nor does it represent her personality. She spends the whole of the film proving that she is not a prize to be won or just a pawn to be married off at earliest convenience. She proves her worth in this outfit. She saves China in this outfit. She falls in love in this outfit. She risks her life, makes her strongest friendships, and changes the entire country IN THIS OUTFIT. Then they have her walk around the park in the same outfit she wore in the first scene of the movie and I think it is really negative toward her character. That is not who she is.
Um no she doesn’t save China in this outfit. She saves it in this one
Because the whole point of the movie was that she could still be feminine and save her father and China.
Also in the beginning it’s not the dress that she doesn’t like it’s the fact that she lives in a society were the only way a woman can bring honor to her family is to marry an honorable man.
THANK. YOU. Seriously, everyone keeps saying that the true Mulan is the armored one. Did people forget that she was impersonating a man, therefore she wasn’t Mulan? She saved China AS HERSELF. She was neither wearing a bride’s gown nor a soldier’s armor; she was being herself.
I’d love to meet Mulan in her “saved China” outfit; I feel it represents her best
