beauty entry

you are the single most

beautiful thing to ever exist

art wishes to look

more like you

poetry cannot even compare

to all of the words 

coming out of your mouth

seeds don’t want to grow into plants

they want to grow into you

the sun is dim in comparison to

how bright you shine

your bones are so lucky 

to be able to 

hold you together

every cell inside of you

is beautiful

the moon rises every night

just to see your face

At last, here’s my entry! I just wanted an excuse to kiss Tokiya

Notice me @skillshotlabs-senpai!

If you like my art, why not commission me? Sanddollars aren’t made of money you know!

dear future wife,

i want you on your best days so i can witness that intoxicating smile of yours but, i also want you on your worst days so i can comfort you and remind you how amazing you are. how blessed i am to have you in my life. i want your tired smile and your drunken self, so i can kiss away that hangover. i want you on nights you can’t sleep so you can wake me up and tell me what’s on your mind, talk my ear off until the sun rises. i want you when you’re laughing at yourself because that is honestly the most beautiful thing ever. i want all of you, forever and always.

love,
your future wife

Coming To Terms With 'Beauty And The Beast' And The Imperfect Feminism Of Disney
How Belle laid the groundwork for today's badass cartoon heroines.

I was quoted a few times in this, though honestly I think my actual viewpoint is more toward the center - unfortunately it was just the more extreme sounding quotes used here, oh well 😂 maybe I will write more about it here later.

Ignoring that, you might find this an interesting piece. Doesn’t cover everything, but it covers a fair amount and has some new info on the making of the movie. 

“Woolverton’s fight to shape Belle into a new kind of Disney heroine was just that — a fight, every step of the way,” wrote Time’s Eliza Berman in May 2016. Her scripts took almost jaw-droppingly retrogressive rewrites:

In one scene, for example, Woolverton wrote Belle sticking pins into a map of all the places she wished to travel. By the time it got to storyboarding, Belle had been rewritten into a kitchen, decorating a cake. Woolverton protested, and the compromise that was reached had Belle with her nose in a book, a pastime at first considered too passive to be compellingly animated, which is why she always walks as she reads.

I always find it odd when women are insecure about stretch marks. I quite like them to be honest. For me, I see no difference between stretch marks and tattoos. They’re what make a woman’s body unique, distinctive, like flowers in a field; no two are ever exactly alike.
