don't go away

we all had that one friend who wasn’t allowed to read books because of their devil religion amiright

The choreography in “Rewrite the Stars” is honestly genius.

The whole scene is staged in such a way that for the first half of the song, Phillip is continuously trying to pull Anne back to him each time she tries to pull away. He’s trying to hold her in place at his level, on the ground. Even when she soars up into the air, he keeps trying to literally pull her back down: grabbing on to her hand, her waist, the rope, her hoop. Anything to keep her in place with him. 

But for the second half of the song, Phillip stops trying to hold her down and instead follows after her into the air, basically saying through the choreography, “If we can’t be together in my world, can we be together in yours?”

And only once they’re both in the air - the space that reflects the freedom the circus gives them - does Anne allow herself to consider the idea that they could actually be together. Phillip stops waiting for her to stay on the ground with him and puts in the work to be with her, literally scaling the walls of the theater to reach her. In more ways than one, they end up finding a balance and supporting each other’s weight for the rest of the song.

What I’m trying to say is that the choreography in The Greatest Showman is not only absolutely gorgeous, it’s also incredibly deliberate and tells a story through movement and I love it so much. 

#i just love this moment right here #the pure happiness radiating from both of them #’do you want to get out of here’ and an emphatic ‘yes’ #alec’s slowly spreading grin #magnus’s smitten face and the embodiment of heart-eyes #the way they circle in each other’s gravity #it’s a fleeting moment but it feels like everything

Hello! I really enjoy your blog and your cats are beautiful. If you don't mind answering, what levels of biting are acceptable for a cat, and to what extent would a cat be considered aggressive and need to be taught to not bite? Thank you!

if a cat bites you, 9/10 times it’s saying “you’ve done something to scare me or piss me off.” LISTEN TO IT & change your behaviour, rather than the cats

I’ll use Pangur as an example: she’s a snotty child with photophobia, so if she’s in bright sunlight (blinded) & a stranger tries petting her, Pangur will bite. not hard enough to break the skin - this is just communication. she’s saying “I’m a princess, you’re bothering me, leave.” bratty? yes. but the solution isn’t to punish her for biting, it’s to respect her wishes & leave her tf alone

of course, sometimes biting is a medical red flag. if your cat bites when you touch a certain area (legs, head, etc), that could signify pain, meaning a vet visit’s in order

problematic biting can ALSO be a play behaviour (usually found in cats raised in isolation, with no siblings to tell them when a bite’s too hard). it isn’t something I’m terribly familiar with, so maybe @followthebluebell could chip in on how to correct that?
