i have a lot of feelings for this movie ok

Ok but I’ve been binge watching the Narnia movies again, after not having seen them for a long ass time, and now, being a little older and (hopefully) a little more mature than I was when I first saw them, I always feel physically sick when I see the Pevensies being children after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe because they just aren’t anymore and I can’t even begin to imagine what it must be like, to grow up as kings and queens, respected and important, and full of duty, only to go back to being 8 years old (in Lucy’s case).

They didn’t remember England, or the wardrobe, or their old lives, they were Narnians and they were pushed back, not only into a world that was bound to make them miserable, but also into bodies that couldn’t reflect what they’d been through.

Just imagine Peter, waking up in the morning, not remembering that he isn’t the Magnificent anymore, imagine him subconsciously reaching for something to trim his beard, only to remember that it isn’t there anymore, to expect old battle wounds to hurt until he realises that they can’t because he doesn’t have them.

Or Edmund, who left England a stubborn selfish little boy who only wanted his mummy back, and came back the Just, the redeemed traitor, the diplomat, the man, having to resort to being ten years old and probably not even allowed to peek at a newspaper because he’s just a child after all. He plays chess, incredibly well, he doesn’t mock his siblings anymore and all the friends he knew when he was still a boy are either irritated at his behaviour or too childish, too selfish for somebody who knows very well just what selfishness can do, who has a part of the White Witch in him, always.

Susan forgets, we all know that. She must’ve lain awake at night, remembering just what it felt like to cover pain and viciousness and gore with a smile and a blush, remembering being the Gentle, but never in war. She must’ve cried for all the lost years, for all that she learnt and that she can never forget, for all that she has accomplished, that will bring her nothing in this world that doesn’t feel like hers. So she sits down in front of a mirror, talks herself out of believing, telling herself that it wasn’t real, that it was just a dream, that this Narnia her siblings talk about is nothing but a game.
The truth is too terrifying, to devastating to face.

Lucy, little Lucy, who grew up under Mr Tumnus’ smiles and Aslan’s approving gaze, who was loved by all, who did learn how to rule, how to negotiate but who never forgot just what it means to be a queen of Narnia, this girl who matured into a woman, who had a woman’s mind and body and a queen’s grace, she who they called the Valiant, the lion’s daughter, she shrank into herself, into a child, younger than even her siblings. She remembers, clearest of them all, she is the only one who still knows Mr Tumnus’ face, still knows Aslan, but she is just a girl, a pretty little thing who will never be the queen she was, who will never be the woman she was because queenship forms a person in ways no schools can.

They must’ve been devastated when they tumbled to the floor, short and small, and there’s a war they have no control over and Lucy is small, Edmund is skinny, so skinny and Peter and Susan have lost their glow and they’ve changed, they’ve changed so much. (The first time, somebody calls them by just their names, they feel invalidated and small. And offended. They’re kings and queens, they’ve earned their titles and now they have to sit in a dim room filled with children and listen to teachers, have to allow themselves to be insignificant and nothing more than what they were when Lucy first stepped into Narnia - frightened children in the middle of a war they wish was never there in the first place)

For your consideration:

Boromir would have been so proud of Rohan for showing up to help Minas Tirith.

Boromir, who spends the whole first book speaking out about his friends and allies the Rohirrim.

Boromir, who defies the rumor that the men of Rohan now pay a tribute of horses to Sauron.

Boromir, who advocates that they travel through the gap of Rohan because of the kindness he experienced there on his way to Rivendell, when even Aragorn suspects the Rohirrim of treachery.

Imagine for a moment how proud he would have been to see the forces of Rohan cresting that hill, to hear their horns blowing as they mounted the charge to save Minas Tirith.  A battle which, honestly, Theoden knew he might not return from.

Boromir would have been honored and proud to know that Theoden held his oaths to Gondor in such high regard.  That he was worried to think that Denethor might not expect his army to come to the aid of Gondor 

please just think about this for a moment and be sad and excited with me

  • what she says: i'm fine

tips for ppl with hyperempathy from a fellow hyperempathetic pal

• dont be afraid to blacklist tags on tumblr about negative stuff. even if it’s incredibly important, i know it makes me v stressed out

• it’s ok to hate drama and not want to watch tv shows/movies/whatever that include arguments or fighting.

• a lot of people nowadays who aren’t kids like stuffed animals so people won’t really think you’re all that weird if you bring your stuffed animal everywhere

• it’s ok if your empathy fluctuates!! it’s ok if you only feel empathy for inanimate objects!! it’s ok if u have hypoempathy! all ‘not normal’ levels of empathy are super ok and there are lots of people who experience them

• hyperempathy isn’t always a bad thing. we have a lot of love in our hearts. always try to remember that

also idk can we talk about how all the male characters in logan were all very emotionally driven and allowed to be so and how very domestic caliban is in what he does like cooking and caring for charles and also trying to actively talk about issues and health and feelings with logan on what seems like a regular basis can we

okay but forget all the dramatic stuff and just think about oikawa and iwaizumi:

  • chatting about their plans for the weekend
  • linking each other music and videos
  • having silent laughing fits in the back of the classroom
  • arguing about the plot of a movie they just watched
  • laying in each others’ rooms on their phones in comfortable silence
  • buying each other joke presents
  • bringing up something the other did years ago and both crying from laughter bc in hindsight it was pretty funny
  • forcing the other to come with them to buy/do something
  • trying to study together but getting distracted bc talking is way more fun
  • bitching about someone they both dont like
  • snapchatting instead of doing homework
  • cringing over old photographs
  • pushing each other around in shopping trolleys
  • cheering the other up when they’re down
  • wrestling for the last slice of pizza
  • telling each other lame jokes and laughing sarcastically at each other
  • venting and asking the other for advice
  • being stupid and happy
  • being best friends
  • just think about oikawa and iwaizumi

Say Goodbye
(Max & Furiosa)

I have been wanting to draw this since I saw the movie for the first time. I love their relationship so much and though I do ship them romantically, I wanted this to be read any way the viewer feels is most satisfying to them. This will be for sale at IndyPop this weekend! 

Monday

So any art class that I came across is currently in session, which means I’ll have to wait until I return from Barcelona to sign up for a class. However, I was told by one of my lovely editors that the company will happily reimburse me because for the class because I would be using it to further my skills and do better work. How great is that?! Who knows? Maybe after I’ve taken a lot of classes, I’ll have learned enough that I’ll be able to create my own comic and/or zine.

Also, and this is totally unrelated, I find myself opening up a little more. I don’t know what’s come over me, but I feel braver. It’s the little things: I’m making plans with my coworkers, going to places like the movies by myself (and being 100% ok with that), as well as exchanging flirtatious looks with guys on the subway and getting these smiles back, which is definitely a major confidence boost. One of my friends said I’m acting like my old self again, but I think I’m better than my old self. I don’t know. I’m just happy. And I’ve finally reached this place of acceptance. Now when I think of Lucas, I think of all the good memories.

I have a confession to make. i know this is bad but sometimes i feel bad that you don't like a movie i like and i feel like my opinion is wrong and i know that's not your fault, it's just me being silly and stupid and then i feel bad because if someone pulled something like that on me i'd feel bad and idk, i just have a lot of respect for you and your opinions, i hope i don't make you feel bad, i just needed to get it off my chest.

everyone’s opinions are different! i feel that way too sometimes, especially when i have a different opinion on a movie compared to one of my friends. it’s disappointing on both sides, and frustrating when people don’t feel the same way about something you either really like or dislike. just don’t feel bad ok! having opinions forms your own unique personal taste in movies and that’s a good thing

zootopia is just such a good movie and it really hits on issues happening in our society today. they focus on the systematic prejudices against a specific group in society. we are introduced to the heroine who is portrayed as being much more open minded and accepting but then we are shown that even someone as open minded as her has to continually deal with the prejudices ingrained into her and tbh this is one of the best movies disney has ever put out

For some reason tumblr isn't letting me reply to your post so, here are my fluffy headcanons: little Jyn helping Lyra collect rock samples on Lah'mu, Lyra letting Jyn color the profile drafts (idk, I have a lot of Lyra and Jyn feels, ok?); Jyn and Cassian sitting on their cottage doorsteps, drinking hot chocolate, wrapped up in a blanket on Fest; Cassian singing lullabies in Festian (ahem, space!Spanish) to their child while Jyn listens from the doorway all :)) and ♥.♥

You know you can always come to me with your Lyra/Jyn feels and these are peeeeerfect. I love the idea of Jyn taking an interest in her mom’s studies (why didn’t the movie give us more of her day-to-day on Lah’mu UGHHH GARETH). Also I want more Lyra, need more Lyra.

I am also 100% a sucker for any and all situations in which Jyn catches Cassian being soft with their child and just looks on in wonder from afar .. .bahhhhhh why you killin’ me with these.

I honestly feel like a lot of non-Mexicans don’t consider what we have to say about our representation. Like, I’m a half indigenous Mexican that’s cautiously optimistic about pixar’s coco, but is excited about the prospect of a movie like this being released in America to a mainstream audience. But if another Mexican doesn’t feel the same, that’s totally fine because we’re not represented a lot and we shouldn’t have to just “accept what we got” and we should be allowed to say that we deserve better, if that makes sense.

Also instead of comparing coco to the book of life, you should probably be looking into the fact that Disney attempted to trademark Dia de los Muertos at one point. Because I’m totally fine with having more than one Day of the Dead movie, since we have tons of Christmas and Halloween movies. I just want non-Mexicans to focus on the bigger issues, you know what I mean?

Idk just try to remember that our opinions are really the only opinions that matter when it comes to things like this, ok?

trueromantic1 replied to your post “So want to talk to someone about the new Power Rangers movie”

Okay, I have not seen it, but I probably won’t until it’s on DVD. I’ve been on the fence, because I’m 28 and the original series and movies started when I was little, and I HAVE FEELINGS about the show lol. And ships, I have lots of feelings about ships lol. But I’m begging you, TELL ME EVERYTHING!! I know several of to original MMPR cast was excited for it, which gives me hope. At least tell me cameos pretty please lol.

They focused a little more on Jason, Kimberly, and Billy than Zack and Trini. Alpha 5 was hilarious. Brian Cranston did a pretty OK job as Zordon. I was honestly hoping for a Lord Zedd reference at the end, but I didn’t see any. :(

The one cameo I did recognize was of Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank. And I about died when they came on screen. There might have been others, but I didn’t recognize anyone.

  • What she says: i'm fine.
  • What she means: it's been like 20 years almost since the prince of egypt came out and dreamworks STILL won't put it out on freaking blu-ray, and sometimes it seems like they're ashamed of this movie because it isn't cgi or shrek 12 or whatever which kinda sucks and less worthy stuff has huge active fandoms but POE doesn't and also the only time this movie ever gets brought up in the mainstream is when it's favorably compared to waste like exodus gods and kings which isn't fair and it isn't saying much anyway because literally every movie on earth is better than exodus gods and kings and would it kill dreamworks to make the road to el dorado 2?? i'm sorry i just have a lot of feelings about all of this ok.

Ok ready I'm going to tell you about what I want in my future u ready?? Literally since I was 7 I've wanted to be an author and I still really do and I want to study English at uni and I know which uni and everything but then I'm also really really passionate about movies and want to be a director but I feel like that's a lot harder to really adapt into a career?? And film school seems sketchy and I still love English and writing so idk :/

I CAN RELATE, WHEN I WAS LIKE 10 I THOUGHT OK, I’M GOING TO BE THE NEXT JK ROWLING, I WILL BE AN AUTHOR and then i realised thanks to parents and Growing Up that my chances of Making It Big are real slim and one of the key things in life is to have money, a stable income, so i can provide myself with a home and food and clothes,, so that dream kind of died. That plus i also realised i have no talent oh boy

and THEN i really thought ok I could work in the movie industry (this is like at age 13) as a director/producer, but my parents say that u actually need to know how to act if you’re going to end up directing someone. and me?? i don’t do drama. i can’t. act. why? i have confidence issues, and never did it in high school. 

and now at 17 (in 4 days) and i think about what i want to do in Uni, doing english lit at cambridge or oxford sounds cool,,, but will that actually help me in the future ?? can i actually Obtain a stable job by doing that course? idk man. film school would be the biggest disappointment i could give my parents as i would be scrapping away all my intellect (that i apparently have) but i’m still really passionate about films and movie-making and the industry but how am i going to make a good career out of that ??? 

but same, i love english, and i can 100% relate to you.

don’t be like me and feel that everyone is hindering my dreams. just go for it. 

go on anon and tell me things !!!
