I’m on the edge of glory, and I’m hanging on a moment of truth Out on the edge of glory, and I’m hanging on a moment with you
because I have WAY too many feelings about genderbent Star Wars… more Rule 63 Anakin and Padme drawings, this time just on Episode II because this movie had some wonderfully vivid scenes, and the “Edge of Glory" (both the song and phrase) evokes a lot of the feeling and themes I get from this point in the story….
polly, pretty polly, would you take me unkind? let me sit beside you and tell you my mind, well, my mind is to marry and never to part, my mind is to marry and never to part, the first time I saw you, it wounded my heart.

Oh, whoa throwback! I watched this movie a pretty long time ago, but i remember it being really riveting and inspiring. I feel like it’s one of the few bollywood movies that doesn’t have unnecessary scenes (if you know what i mean) idk it’s just a really great feel good movie, and you can’t really go wrong with SRK- we don’t count Ra One and Chennai Express.
May I ask why it's not as problematic or damaging? I'm not trying to be rude or hate, I'm seriously curious so I can expand my knowledge on feminist issues :)
i think its just like he is a male writer than is famous enough that he could write anything and like it’ll be popular? it’ll make an impact on the YA scene you know? and like i think also he has a really limit scope on some of his like types of characters and he’s a total abuser of the manic pixie trope and like there are a ton of really really great female writers out there, who are talking about issues that are like real and relevant and not being talked about but they are being overshadowed by green and like idk obviously i have personal qualms about his writing talent but i wont deny he is ridiculously popular its just like ugh idk i think some of that space could be better suited to promote female writers talking about YA issues
It's not really that people are being mean about other people's gifs. That post is talking about people who are tired of this "colorless/muted" trend that's going on and that sucks almost all the colors out of a scene and doesn't really look that great in my opinion. It also is really pretty easy to do (unlike the pastel trend before it, which is both pretty and difficult to color). I think some people would just like to see some color in their gifs again!
Ah, thanks for your explanation, anon! I don’t know if I ever saw the colouring you are taking about though! Lately I’m pretty obsessed with pastel colouring (but I tend to use pale colourings when I really can’t go under 2MB) - so I don’t feel like ‘judging’ if someone likes other types of colouring (more ‘popular’ at the moment) for their gifs: I enjoy both colorful and colorless gifsets, if it suits the scenes! And everyone has their tastes, so…
What I like about them I LOVE PIPPIN. he’s just a plucky kid with no talents and no reason to even be there in the first place, but he really goes on to prove himself a hero in his own right. he never loses his cheer, even after tremendous suffering, which to me shows a great deal of inner strength. i think that’s easy to miss. What I dislike about them ok lbr knocking over the skeleton in moria was a BAD MOVE Favourite moment idk if i’d say its my favorite, but i liked the scene when he got faramir out of the funeral pyre. it was really brave and touching, and mildly hilarious (see above pic). which i think sums up his entire character lmao Least favourite moment the whole thing with the palantir in rotk. not his fault, but the weird slow motion was… weird. A situation with this character that I want to see explored more HIM AND MERRY TRYING TO PLAY PRANKS AND FAILING MISERABLY EVERY TIME. this is all i need in my life. An interesting AU for this character what if pippin was an incredibly badass military commander and a chief representative of his entire race and lived to be over a hundred, at which point he was buried in the greatest city in middle earth. OH WAIT THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED. *high fives rotk appendices* A crossover idk i never know how to answer this??? i dont watch enough tv OTP (or OT3+ etc…. just… favourite ship) ?????? Other ships? err what was his wife’s name.. diamond of long cleeve. yeah she’ll do BROTP merry NOTP merry An assortment of headcanons!
i can totally see pudgy middle-aged merry and pippin sneaking around in the dead of night still trying to pull off practical jokes.
like on the eve of aragorn’s visit they’re putting whoopee cushions under arwen’s chair and snickering really loudly to themselves through the whole ceremony. except arwen spots the thing and thinks it’s a quaint hobbity present or something. so she takes it home and frames it on the wall and treasures it and they cant bear to tell her the truth o MG
