I stumbled upon a tumblr today that helps writers accurately represent characters with racial / nationalistic / religious / sexual orientation (and so on) differences than their own.
The site allows you to submit your own experiences and/or get into contact with others that have in order to enhance the depiction of characters in your creative writing.
What a great idea!
OH SHIT READ THIS YOU CIS STRAIGHT CRACKERS
I’m completely down for this.
1000000000% Agree! I always had the feeling Triton did Ursula bogus as fuck. Like he made her do some magic that she told him would have consequences and then exiled her when the shit she told him would happen came true
I always wanted them explore Trixie’s dichotomy between social acceptable popular girl and closet nerd.
is no one going to mention the fact that shE COSPLAYED AS TOPH?!
I AM OVERJOYED
Day 3: Favourite Quotes
LET ME TELL YOU WHY THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT, UNDERRATED DISNEY FILMS OF ALL TIME OKAY:
1. It teaches kids that we should never judge others by their appearance or what we’ve seen on the surface.
2. It teaches kids that despite if we’ve been taught to be afraid of or hate something or someone that looks/acts differently than us, we should learn and try to understand them before we judge them.
3. It teaches that two sides that may hate each other don’t always have to stay that way - they can learn and grown from each other’s mistakes.
4. It teaches that hatred is not always the answer; to listen, to step back, and see through someone else’s eyes. It teaches patience, understanding, and wisdom.
5. IT TEACHES CHILDREN THAT PEOPLE CAN BE FORGIVEN AND DO BETTER.
6. It teaches children that even if you make a mistake, you can learn and grow from it like Kenai.
Seriously I just love this movie to pieces it is so important to me and I wish more people knew/watched it because wtf it’s AMAZING.
My friend just made this status
Take that, Bembridge Scholars!
The Mummy is a film about a woman having a marvellous time, and I think that’s so beautiful.
Yes, let’s just ignore that whole part in the middle where she was being hunted by a mummy who tried to use her body as a vessel for his dead lover.
I’ve seen a handful of comments like this and I just wanted to address it because I think it’s worth talking about. I realise my summation of the film is flippant; it was an attempt at irony because obviously the movie is full of gruesome death and dismemberment, and I fully agree that Evie is terrorized. But that’s not what the film is about. It’s not about Evie the human sacrifice - that’s something that happens to her but it isn’t who she is.
The point is, the whole plot of The Mummy literally could not happen without Evie pursuing the thing that she loves.
They go out to Hamunaptra because Evie is passionate about knowledge and discovery, and when they get there she is in her element - she is loving every minute of it and she is proud of herself and she is absolutely going to kiss Mr O’Connell. But once that thirst for knowledge and discovery inadvertantly raises Imhotep, and there is literally fire and brimstone raining from the sky, and everyone else is running and hiding, she never ever once despairs. She accepts responsibility, she owns her mistake and she refuses to believe there is nothing to be done. She follows her passions again and decides that more knowledge and more discovery is what’s required. And she’s right. She finds the answer and she takes triumphant pleasure in proving to herself that she is a greater scholar than the ones at Bembridge, the ones who have repeatedly found her lacking.
Do you realise how rare it is for a female character’s intellectual pursuit to be the thing that kicks off the action and the thing that saves the day, AND a source of ultimate joy in her life?
When Imhotep comes for her she goes without a fight, to save her companions’ lives, because she knows that’s the best chance they have. When Rick and Jonathan and Ardeth come to save her she is pivotal in her own rescue. She is never a Damsel, she is always part of the team.
And then Evie SAVES THE WORLD. She saves the world by doing the thing that she loves and is good at. She saves the world, she gets the guy, and they ride off into the sunset with some treasure. And really, that’s a pretty good end to a day.
So I’m doing this new thing on my stream now with the help of my buddy Caerdwyn. Once a month, Caerdwyn and I have decided to do what we call The Surprise Caer Package.
More times than I can reasonably count, I’ve seen viewers in my stream talk about the hardships in their lives, with some of them being so far down that they literally cannot afford food. I have been in that position before. I have been to a point where I could not afford to eat or pay my bills, and that shit is rough. The solution? We’re going to try and help alleviate some of that stress.
Once a month, I am going to hunt around on Twitter, Tumblr, Twitch, and any other social media website I can and find people who are struggling and need this help. Then, with the help of Caerdwyn, we will send them 1 or 2 boxes [And these are BIG FUCKIN’ BOXES] filled with food via Amazon Pantry, completely free of charge. But why do this in the first place? Because people are worth it. When you have the ability to do good, regardless of how small that good may be, fuckin’ do it.
This month’s select is occoris, a fucking talented artist and someone who has been struggling with eating for the past couple weeks. I hope the food helps!
