Angelus always knew how to shop for his ladies.
the english language, everyone
This hit me like a brick
And people wonder why authors use italics and bold and shit so reader’s understand what’s going the fuck on.
And of course I just read this in my head 7 times, stressing each word differently.
OMG! This is BRILLIANT!
Honey I know, I know, I know times are changing
It’s time we all reach for something new.
that means you, too.
1990 was 23 years ago
I am so confused… how could this be..?
since the year 1990, 23 years have passed
Don’t force your beliefs on me
NGL….definitely cried. Between this and Dean getting his own room and taking out this photo….I swear the writers were like…we’re going to make the fans cry this week…but in a GOOD way.
Thank you Disney. It took 70 years and a push from Pixar, but you FINALLY gave us a mother/daughter adventure.
Bless you for not killing her/making her evil/pushing her off to the side.
I just want to take a moment to have some serious gushing about the symbolism in this movie, because this gifset is actually really good for it. I was watching the commentary the other day after buying this movie, and there’s a point where they mention how you can TELL Elinor used to be feisty and quite fiery in her youth, much like her very headstrong daughter, but everything about her now is that of a dignified lady who has had to rein herself in to be the diplomat for their kingdom.
Early in the film, you see her walk in a very closed fashion. She holds herself tightly, does not gesture broadly, rarely speaks up. Even her weighted, heavy dress and the way she wears her hair show her as being restrained by the duties she has put upon herself.
Then… the events of the movie occur, and in the end, you see her in a loose flowing dress that seems almost more like something Merida would wear. She’s excitable, going out and doing things with her daughter, and her long hair is no longer tied back, but instead neatly pinned and flowing. In essence, Elinor herself opened up. She let go and found herself becoming more accepting.
Merida wasn’t the only person who learned a lesson about family and responsibility in this movie. Elinor learned that she had to let go now and then in order to relate to, and to understand, her daughter better. It wasn’t just Merida growing up, it was Elinor finding that middle ground and standing firmly on it, supporting her daughter’s beliefs when she realized that Merida wasn’t the only one who hadn’t listened.
She hadn’t, either, and Merida was not the only one at fault. The result was not just a one sided lesson, but a beautiful, rounded story of a mother and a daughter finding out that their differences are what really make them so alike, and finding that place to stand together. Maybe they won’t always see eye to eye, but they’ve now learned that they must have open conversation and understanding to hold their family together, and both women grew up immensely in that moment of realization.
In short: it’s not just my own Scottish heritage that makes me love this movie. It’s that this film is so indicative of the relationships so many young women feel themselves in with their mothers, and I personally am no exception. Elinor and Merida speak to women and daughters everywhere, young and old, and the lesson they learn is one we can all adhere to, no matter how hard it sometimes feels to accept that.
I have something in my eye.
Remember when I went to go see this movie with my mom and she had no idea what it was going to be about because she wanted to see “snow white and the huntsman” instead? And then ALL WE DID WAS HOLD HANDS AND CRY???
It actually really, really frustrates me sometimes because every single one of my male friends wrinkle their nose when this movie comes up as one of my favourite Pixar films of all time. They’re all like, ‘the story though - the story wasn’t interesting’ and I just want to strangle them and go, ‘to you maybe, but that might be because for THE FUCKING FIRST TIME PIXAR ACTUALLY SPOKE DIRECTLY TO A FEMALE AUDIENCE AND THEY FUCKING NAILED IT SO HARD THE HOUSE FELL THE FUCK DOWN’.
My mum and I were crying together by the end because this is basically our relationship. We used to argue all the time, we would always pick fights and make comments, just to “out smart” or whatever the other person. And finally we just had a heart to heart (i didn’t change her in to a bear) and our relationship has finally gone back to normal. This movie is freaking perfect.
Even my Dad enjoyed it.
My mom hadn’t died when I finally saw this movie but it still made me cry and I’m not quite sure I’ll be able to watch it again since I don’t get to have my mum back like Merida did. But I still think this movie is lovely. This movie was an important movie and I promise you it will have its place in history though I’m glad a few of us realize its greatness right now.
Clark Gable, Shirley Temple, Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland
I’m reading a johnlock fanfic…..I’m not going to lie…I’m enjoying it. It is one of the first fan fics I’ve ever read. And I laughed a lot at this..
Someone approached his elbow. A woman spoke, “It’s a bit chilly out here isn’t it?” Her voice was pleasant, an invitation for a chat, and more.
Sherlock didn’t look at her. “Piss off or I will throw you overboard.”
Fan fics can be delightful. I really enjoyed the one I read today. It was 30,000 words written over 6 days and it was a good story. It had a nice progression and there was just as much plot as there was smut so that’s always nice.
Thing is I found this one only after looking at the summary/starting chapter of about 15 others fic which were all just dreadful. So how does one find good fan fiction?
I think Emily told us a weird story about growing up that she would, um, she terrorized you, right?
Oh yeah, she came on here and humiliated me, in front of millions of people.
