hansel and gretel: with hunters

You know what representation I wanna see in television and movies?

Autoimmune diseases.

I have only ever seen diabetes on screen twice: one was a minor character in a single episode, and the other was less a representation and more a reference. Both were such full of such horrible misinformation its terrifying to think people might actually believe the info presented.
One was Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters “sugar sickness”. it was supposedly magical, but it was obviously a diabetes stand in. I’ll give it a pass because they never called it diabetes and because magic, but his need for a single injection once every 24 hours at a very specific time is laughably far from the truth.

The second was slightly less forgivable because they explicitly call it diabetes, but then got the facts wrong. blue bloods had an episode very early on where a girl with t1d was kidnapped. the entire episode, my dad and I just sat critiquing the show for getting so many facts about t1d, insulin, and sugars wrong. the idea that someone might reference this for info is terrifying.

Diabetes is already subject to a ton of misconceptions. many people don’t even know that there are two kinds, let alone the extremely important and rather large differences between them.

So I would love to see more characters with autoimmune diseases and misunderstood disabilities on screen done well and accurately informed so that more of the general populace is better informed about this kind of thing.

Les Mis/Fairy Tales Aesthetic: Enjolras and Cosette: Witch Hunters

We learned a couple of things while we were trapped in that house. One, never walk in to a house made of candy. And two, if you’re gonna kill a witch, set her ass on fire.


“When a person truly deals in witchraft they cannot hide it. A nasty rot sets in - it shows in their teeth, their skin and their eyes.This man is not a witch, just a drunken fool.” In which Cosette and her brother are famed witch exterminators for hire, Enjolras’ first meeting with Grantaire could’ve gone better, Marius is happy to just be helping out his heroes and Thenardier needs to die already.

Based off the film Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, it’s so underrated go check it out~
