i feel like this is a very relatable quote

I think when you sense that there is a divide in your country and that there are people who perhaps you’re not relating to, and that those of us who are fortunate enough to live in a world of very liberal human rights and privilege, it’s a wake-up call that we’re not addressing a big part of the country that does feel disenfranchised. The whole country is not like New York and L.A. and the world that I am used to living in.
—  Tom Ford, director of Nocturnal Animals

“As soon as I get back home I’ll go out and start doing Spider-Man, which I’m very excited about ‘cause I’ve been wanting to break, you know, into a different space in the acting world for a long time. We’re probably gonna have another season of ‘K.C. Undercover’ which I love. I’m [also] very excited about finishing my album, which I hope to be finishing within the next few months; I feel like a lot of young people – specially who’ve ever dealt with, like, love in any form can really relate to. Balancing that with everything else that I have going on and the fashion world is a lot, but it’s great. My number one thing is, you know, all the charity and all the inspirational stuff that I get to do, which is really the reason behind all of this.”

6 Incredibly Hasty Predictions for Race to the Edge Season 4

I’ve only watched the Season 3 episodes once so far. I’ve read no follow up interviews with creators about the content of the season. I’ve never written a HTTYD analysis in my life. But this season has me feeling riled up, and I can’t help but think ahead to what’s going to happen in the final season. So here are my predictions for events, made after the show has been released for less than a day, supported by statements like “it’s my opinion” and “this quote is relevant because I said so.” Feel free to disagree. [SPOILERS DUH!!!!]

1. Dagur is alive. 

As a life long consumer of pop culture I’ve learned one rule when it comes to television/movie deaths: if you don’t see the body, be skeptical. The entertainment industry LOVES fake deaths! Yes, this is a children’s show. Yes, they can’t show very much relating to a man being killed in battle onscreen in a program rated Y-7. But a knife dramatically falling into the water, while symbolic, does not necessarily mean Dagur is a goner. So unless Doug and Art speak out in an interview saying that Dagur is absolutely, 100%, unquestionably dead, I will continue to hope. Daddy Dagur will rise again. I’m in hardcore denial right now. Just let me have this, guys.

Look at him go. I miss him so much already. #TeamDagurLives

2. Berk will face economic hardship.

STOICK. WHAT. WERE. YOU. THINKING? Who trusts their teenage son with the ENTIRE FORTUNE OF GOLD of their village? I can barely trust myself carrying around my mom’s credit card. I’m sure Hiccup was very sure of his plan, but this is Viggo we’re talking about. Nothing is certain. Which is why I’m predicting the loss of Berk’s fortune will come back to bite them in the butt at some point before the series ends. That’s a LOT of money. People gotta eat.

3. Heather: revenge or die tryin’

Heather played a much larger role this season (moving in, getting a bae. Haters, what’s good?) and we’re going to see much more of her again next season. Is Heather going to take the death (???) of her brother lightly? Nawww. Especially with all the revelations revealed to her about Dagur after he left, flying into battle with the hunters to protect her. There’s going to be hell to pay, and it’ll be interesting to see how her unfinished business impacts her place within the riders, her relationship with Fishlegs, and her future as the heir (?!?!?!) to the Berserker tribe. Also i need answers about their dad what the hell happened to that guy

4.  Hiccstrid kiss. Duh.

We earned this, guys. We’ve waited so long. We earned it.

5. Chicken will lay eggs. 

Did you see the way Chicken hopped right on up there to help hatch that egg? Pure biological instinct, people. There are chicks coming, I can feel it. And with Chicken’s new family lifestyle there’s no way Tuffnut can get in the way of that. Bam. That’s my Chickenless-HTTYD2 rational.

And finally…

6. Viggo will try to use Astrid against Hiccup. 

One of Viggo’s strengths is that he not only thinks up genius plans, but finds ways to use Hiccup’s strengths against him. And boy oh boy, did Viggo discover a big one. “Buffalord Soldier” had some definite Hiccstrid moments, but one event I can’t stop thinking about is the interaction between Hiccup and Viggo after the capture of the Buffalord. Hiccup compromises. Hiccup WILL NOT let Astrid die. And Viggo sees that firsthand. Do I think it was a coincidence that the writers chose that moment to reintroduce Viggo into the equation? Hell no. This moment showed Viggo that there is something, someone, that will cause Hiccup Haddock III to surrender a dragon. Sure, maybe Hiccup had already thought of the Buffalord blowing up the hunter’s ship, but maybe not. Viggo looked so pleased in this moment, like he found a trump card he had plans for in the future. I can see him, very strategically, playing this card.

From then on, Viggo pays attention. He had Astrid in his sights during “Defenders of the Wing Pt. 1”, and he makes sure to bring this up to Hiccup when they meet. And Hiccup’s face isn’t subtle at all:

The boy needs to work on that poker face. Anyway, I’m predicting something is going to go down next season in which Viggo uses Astrid’s safety as a bargaining chip to get Hiccup to do what he wants. Nobody likes damsel!Astrid, that’s for sure. But if there’s a knife to her throat and a choice of “the girl or the Night Fury”, some shit is gonna happen. And we all know Astrid isn’t going waltz into this situation, or take it sitting down. 

So that’s it. 6 predictions made with very little evidence. It’s ok if you disagree. I’ll probably disagree with myself on some points too when more info is discussed. But this was fun.

Winnie the Pooh Qutoes

“I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.”

“I used to believe in forever, but forever’s too good to be true”

“I don’t feel very much like Pooh today,“ said Pooh.
“There there,” said Piglet. “I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.”

“I wonder what Piglet is doing,” thought Pooh.
“I wish I were there to be doing it, too.”

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.”

“We’ll be friends forever, won’t we, Pooh?” asked Piglet. “Even longer,” Pooh answered.

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”

“Forever isn’t long at all, Christopher, as long as I’m with you.”

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

Your likes and reblogs of my writings
Has me very concern…

For when I’m writing honestly,
About depression and me,
And then I have a lot of people,
Like or reblog the poetry,
I realize then that you relate to me,
That you basically,
Feel the same way I do…

And if that’s true,
Then maybe some how,
We could all come together
And save one another from taking
That plunge over the edge…

And I’m not talking no “life will get better bullshit”,
We’ve all heard it,
And every time you hear it,
How much better does life really get?

No no,
I’m not talking bullshit,
Just concerned for y'all who relate to my
For I have went over the edge,
I took a pledge,
To never come back here…

But for some reason,
I’m back here,
And I just hope none of y'all,
Ever go there…

“Women mature a lot faster than men do so I’ve always had trouble relating— or not relating, I like to be challenged. I like to be inspired and constantly be learning. I feel like when I’m with someone who’s older than me they have a certain amount of experience in life. There’s a maturity. There’s a different sort of knowledge that they bring to a relationship and the conversations are very different.” 

It’s hard for me to watch a movie with only men in it, without female characters. I can’t relate to it. I grew up around all boys and men, my dad’s sets were mostly [dominated by] men and there were my brothers and cousins. I was with boys all the time. […] I was like the baby girl I got a lot of attention in an all-male family. But I do feel like I’m very into my feminine side because of that.
If I’m having a bad day or something, and I have to perform, it’s the best mood-booster when there are so many awesome kids and teens and adults with you, singing the songs that you wrote. It’s just all so personal. It’s so cool hearing people sing lyrics that relate so closely to my life. It is weird, but it makes me feel like I have friends and people who care. I’m very grateful for all of them.
—  Melanie Martinez about crowd’s reactions at concerts

The movie is so very much about the work, and the toll that it can take, especially if you’re not somebody who can personally relate to what it feels like to give so much of yourself. But she admires it in this actress. There is compassion, but there’s an acknowledgement that she will forever be isolated. She looks up to her, like, "You have genius. There’s something about you that’s just magical and absolutely undeniable and sort of untouchable, and I’m enthralled by it; I want to get as close to it as I can.” But there’s a distance between them that they’re obsessed with, but they can’t close. One is a fan of art and one is the artist. There’s this desperate need to understand one other—that’s the attraction—but at the same time, I think the reason they’re so attracted is they won’t understand each other. ”  - Kristen Stewart
