People don’t understand how gorgeous, moving and just overall perfect this album is. One of my favorites ever. I could write forever about how much I love all the songs, especially Barcelona, The Fallen Priest and The Golden Boy. And then Ensueño.
my unpopular headcanon of Maedhros hair color
sometimes i like to imagine that his hair is more dark auburn :D
isn’t that canon..?
Book 3 buddies (in black & white because my new phone does not like to take photos of screens).
Wow, does this look like it might be an actual conversation happening between my two favorite characters? Or at least a little punching?
“But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”
"I get ribbed for that line because it was so whiny. And I remember at the time, I had to make it as juvenile as possible so that I can show how Luke matures later. So it should be embarrassing. It should be whiny and childish. But boy, has it come back to haunt me. I don’t think I ever got the chance to finally pick them up." - Mark Hamill
I concede your point, and gladly at that. Korra’s own light is awesome! =D She really /is/ more than just the Avatar, and she knows it! =D
:D :D :D
I’m so happy, it’s exactly what I hoped would happen. Thank you!
(LOL, I don’t mean to gloat at you in particular, I’m just EEEEEEEE)
Hah, I don’t mind. What happened in the show is totally worth it!
Tagged: ikkinthekitsune, replies, book 2 spoilers, this was so wonderful for her, also raava talking to korra, raava reassuring her of her independent importance, oh god my precious soul bonded babies i love you both so much.
…and you just reminded me of something important. Korra might not have her bond to her previous lives anymore, but she’s got a direct bond with Raava like Wan did. She should still be able to talk to Raava! Maybe get advice from Raava rather than Aang! I need to see more of their relationship. <3 <3 <3
I WOULD KILL A KITTEN FOR A KORRA-RAAVA RELATIONSHIP
THIS ADORABLE KITTEN, I WOULD SACRIFICE IT TO UNAVAATU
So you have Tenzin and Unalaq vying to be Korra’s spiritual advisor, two adult men who both think they know what’s best for her, that what they can teach her is the most important thing she’ll learn, that she will be a good Avatar but only if she listens to what they have to say - and while there’s some deconstruction of the Obi-Wan going on here (that the mentor figure might not always be right, might not always be entirely committed to the protagonist’s growth, and might not always be teaching the things the protagonists really need), all of that goes out the window because you also have Jinora.
The small bookish girl who still races air scooters with her younger siblings, and has a burgeoning spiritual connection she doesn’t even understand yet, but who we already know is going to be instrumental in Korra’s spiritual growth.
what a spectacular subversion of the mentor/mentee trope. in a world full of crotchety men trying to tell korra what to do, she’s gonna learn what she needs to learn from a twelve-year-old girl i am so genuinely excited for this
tenzin and unalaq think they’re hot shit but i believe jinora can save the world
ngl I’m enjoying the Thor gifs mostly because Sif looks like a Dúnadan lady warrior
I’m now developing a headcanon about a daughter of Éomer and Lothíriel who falls in love with Gondor when she visits her uncle and aunt as a child but as she grows up also falls in love with contests of arms etc and wants to be a heroic shield-maiden like Aunt Éowyn and basically becomes Gondor!Alanna
actually I can totally see how that would work out. SOTL/LOTR fusion of ultimate destiny tbh
croclock asked you:List ten things you think are misunderstood/unfairly treated in your favorite fandom, and pass it on to ten of your favorite blogs!Okay, I’m gonna do the thing (in this format because apparently now I can’t add read mores to asks?)
“Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition, and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel.”
Natalie Dormer (via memoirsofthesun)
DING DING DING THIS IS WHY COMPARING WOMEN TO APPLES IS WRONG
Yes, all those horrible man-pigs should not be allowed to write. I mean, when was the last time you saw a woman as an important character or even as a secondary character who could stand on her own? Diskworld? The Wheel of Time? Game of Thrones?
And it’s even worse in cinema. With female characters like Ripley and Leia Organa. Damn man-pigs shouldn’t be allowed to write.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAA oh wait you were serious okay. I am not going to insult your intelligence by explaining about how the concept of generalizations work or why the concept Natalie Dormer is talking about is not a difficult one, but here goes:
There is this perception in media that women must be simplified in order to be understood. This is mostly done by men with the idea that men won’t relate to a complex person. Obviously there are women who do this too. Obviously there are men out there who know how to write women and have the decency to treat them like human beings. If the quote does not apply to you or your favorite authors it is not about you or your favorite authors. It is about a common thing that happens, to women in literature and media.
When writers fail to or deliberately dumb down characters, they do so thinking that men can’t relate to women. Men too are insulted when this happens, because they are perceived as being too dumb to understand a complex woman.
If you don’t understand that, if you don’t get tired of men being thought of as too dumb to understand women, I don’t know how to help you, dude.
On the film side, I love it when people cite Ripley and Leia as reasons gender equality exists in the media. Yep. Two female characters in 30 year old movies. Pack it in, guys. We truly have won.
“man-pigs”. Please, get off your precious cross.
