Did you know? If you catch a falling maple leaf, you’ll fall in love with the person you’re walking with.

Currently watching classic beauty and the beast to prepare for tomorrow

And I have to say, the music in the new one is significantly more epic than in the old. Not to say I don’t love the music in the old, the new just makes me feel so much more, and it’s so much more expansive and beautiful and gah I’m so excited for tomorrow

okay but for burrens imagine burr like cryin how does laurens halp him

Laurens probably tries and comfort him but Burr would initially want his space until he was ready so john would sit there next to him and just coo and remind him how much he loves him and how much he cares and how they’re gonna get through it together, whatever it is. Burr would finally fall into john and just sob because he’s upset but also he knows john cares for him so much and he’s never had someone really like that for him in his life. After burr stops crying john makes Burr cookies (because why the fuck not?) and they watch Burrs fav movie and cuddle

I FUCKING love them

uchihana replied to your post: whatever ur fave movie is im sorry but its not…

SOBBING MESS EVERY TIME I SEE IT

Quite impressed with the REMASTERED version of Gundam SEED / Destiny. I don’t know how people ever doubted Athrun x Cagalli’s ending. I’m pretty sure Athrun will go back to Orb to be with Cagalli. After all, they keep appearing together in the openings & credits. Seriously many thanks to the producers for adding up the remastered special endings. I almost cried when I first saw it. It’s so beautiful. *sobs*

It’s been more than 10 years since the first time I encountered these two, and I’m still loving them to bits. Personally I think what Athrun and Cagalli have is so much more plausible than any other pairings in the series. Opposites attract. They fought, they disagreed, they laughed together, they completed one another. Sure Athrun grew a harem in Destiny, but he never looked at the girls the same way he looked at Cagalli. I heard the movie was coming out to clarify all these confusions, but it’s 2015 already and there was never a follow up. I’m not done hoping though. I want to see their happy endings. I want to see Athrun and Cagalli together, get married and have about 20 kids. Long live Asucaga.

somehow-you-will  asked:

Hey, I loved the breakdown you did of the relationship between Moses and Rameses, so I was wondering what your thoughts were on Moses' relationship with Miriam and Aaron (and if you might be able to do a similar analysis)?

Thank you so much! I loved talking about Moses and Rameses II (and could frankly keep talking about them, oh my goodness), and I’d be really happy to talk about the relationship dynamics between Moses, Miriam, and Aaron. This sibling relationship is complex, emotional, and full of meaning and beauty.

Each sibling has a different role. Aaron is the cynic. Miriam is the inspirer. Moses is the doer. Not only that, but there’s a deep story in how they interact: they are able to build each other up, but only once they all place their faith and trust in God. At first, the family is split up; Aaron and Moses both try to silence Miriam for her faith and hope. Moses regards Miriam and Aaron as slaves. Aaron thinks that Moses and Miriam have crazy ideas. However, over time, this changes. Moses transitions from treating Seti I, Tuya, and Rameses II as his family… to treating Aaron and Miriam as his siblings. Aaron begins accepting Moses and acknowledging the power of God’s deliverance, while Miriam’s hopes become reality. By the end of the movie, the three siblings are radiant around one another, drawn together by the powerful experience of the Exodus.

Moses Leaves His Family

At the start of The Prince of Egypt, Moses’ mother Jochebed takes her three children and runs to the Nile River. She is fleeing Egyptian soldiers, who are slaughtering every Hebrew infant boy. Once she and her children are safely away, she places her baby Moses in a basket, places a lid over the boy, and sends him off to float on the Nile.

Now it’s important to note here that both Miriam and Aaron witness their mother sending the baby off in the basket. However, only Miriam follows the basket; Aaron does not trail after his baby brother, and consequently never sees Tuya pick the boy up. This is important. Miriam sees God answer prayers. Miriam sees Tuya adopt Moses, and consequently the little girl is filled with hope and optimism. Her baby brother is going to survive! Aaron, however, only sees Moses leaving, and he grows up without seeing God fulfill those promises. His most distinct memories of this event will be the Hebrew babies being killed.

Many other life experiences will shape the way Miriam and Aaron think and behave. This is just one event. However, it still seems to predict how Miriam and Aaron act as adults. The next time we see Miriam, she is a woman of faith, while Aaron wallows in skepticism and fear.

Moses Meets Miriam and Aaron

Moses grows up without knowing he was a Hebrew, never realizing that his blood siblings are actually two Hebrew slaves. For this reason, when he stumbles into Miriam and Aaron in the street, he does not recognize them. Miriam and Aaron would have remembered what happened to their baby brother, but since Moses was an infant, of course he doesn’t remember in turn.

Looking at this screencap, it’s painful to think that these are actually three siblings interacting.

Miriam, ever the hopeful, faithful optimist, presumes that Moses has arrived at their doorstep for a family reunion. The last time she saw Moses, she prayed that he would grow up to deliver her people (it’s also the first thing she says in the movie, and man it portrays her and sets her up so well). Now she believes her prayer has been answered. Moses has grown up, he’s meeting with the Hebrew slaves, he’s returning to his family… he has to be delivering them, right? 

The problem is… that’s not why Moses is here at all. In fact, even as Miriam is excitedly greeting Moses, he’s trying to look above her. He’s looking past her, trying to follow Zipporah, and doesn’t quite welcome Miriam’s interruption.

The result is that Miriam looks crazy.

Here is this tiny little slave girl trying to talk to the impressive, gold-wearing, straight-backed Prince of Egypt about deliverance and family. She’s claiming that this royal prince is born of slaves and a brother of slaves. It’s utterly delusional, and she doesn’t back down the entire time. She just keeps persisting, making her look almost insane.

Aaron’s reaction makes total sense here. He doesn’t live by hopes in nothing, but more grounded down on how earth actually is. He tries to shut down Miriam’s babbling before she instills the prince’s wrath and gets them punished. He yanks at her, pushes her away, tries to shut her up, makes excuses about what she’s saying, and begs for Moses not to listen to her words. Wide-eyed, bumbling, and frantic, he at one point even falls to his knees begging for mercy from Moses. Aaron treats Moses with the expectation this man is simply Egyptian royalty. Simply, Aaron’s being a smart bloke acting prudently according to matters as they are.

It’s a ridiculous, chaotic interaction. No one’s helping one another; each sibling is at odds from the other. Moses finds the two Hebrews offensive and stands over them threatening them. Aaron fears that Moses and Miriam will get him physically harmed and starts frantically yanking her out of the way. Miriam is trying to speak to Moses about faith and forgiveness but keeps getting shut down by both of them, eventually ending up kneeling on the ground, crying.

In a way, Aaron’s actions and Moses’ actions make the most sense. Moses has grown up in a societal structure where slaves talking like this are offensively out of line. Aaron is acting according to that social paradigm and trying to save his - and his sister’s - neck from an angry official. Miriam’s the one who is out of line, acting completely out of societal norms or expectations. She’s putting herself at risk for beliefs that seem ludicrous.

But she does one thing that hits home for Moses.

She starts to sing Jochebed’s lullaby.

And Moses recognizes it.  

I love this little visual moment, where Miriam and Jochebed are animated from the same angle, the same way, with the same expression, singing the same song. It’s a flashback to the moment Jochebed placed her son on the Nile.

Personally, I don’t think it’s the visual that makes Moses’ heart skip a beat. It’s the song that Miriam is singing. If you pay attention to the first time Moses hangs out with Rameses after the chariot race, you hear Moses whistling that very same lullaby. He knows the tune well enough that he can whistle it.

How did this happen? Well, the movie diverges a bit from the Old Testament, but if you want to supplement the Bible with this movie, then Exodus 2:7-10 is important. In that passage of the Bible, we learn that Jochebed was Moses’ nurse for the first few years of his life. In that time and region of the world, babies were weaned at a later age - toddlerhood. So Jochebed would have been nursing Moses for about three years before he lived in the palace permanently with Seti I, Tuya, and Rameses II. This means he would have had the chance to form memories about that early childhood lullaby. The average age of first memory is four years old, so it’s not entirely implausible that three year old Moses would have been able to retain this song.

When Miriam starts singing the song, Moses realizes with a jolt where it came from. He learned that lullaby from a Hebrew slave… his true mother.

And so he runs.

Moses Leaves Egypt

In the first interaction between Moses, Miriam, and Aaron, we see Aaron trying to stop Miriam and Moses refusing to listen to either of them.

But the next time Moses sees them, he actually pays attention to Miriam.

Miriam, yet again, is doing something crazy outside of societal regulations. She sees a Hebrew slave being whipped, and she’s shouting out for this to stop. As a slave, she has no authority telling an Egyptian slave driver to quit punishing another slave. But this woman, who acts by her heart rather than by worldly reason, cries out anyway.

Moses hears her. In fact, he ignores Rameses II in order to charge up and stop the whipping. 

“Stop it!” Miriam shouts. 
“There’s nothing we can do!” Aaron shouts, fearful that his sister is getting into trouble.
And then Moses, paralleling his sister, shouts out the same words she does… “Stop it!”

This is the first time we really see the trio at their work. Aaron is thinking about how the world currently, concretely works and operates. Miriam is thinking about ideals. And Moses charges out and does something about the problem. Moses is the one who combines the pain the world currently is in (what Aaron understands) with the ideals of what the world could be (what Miriam understands), and takes an action to change situations for the better.

For the first time, Moses defends the Hebrew people over the Egyptians. 

And he… to his horror… kills a man.

All the slaves stare at Moses with terror. It’s interesting to note, though, that while everyone else backs away, Miriam and Aaron don’t. They recognize that Moses was defending them. Miriam even tries to reach out and comfort Moses, but he doesn’t let her touch him. He runs.

The turmoil of who he is and who he is not has built into a climax inside him. Moses has been freaking out over the fact he’s not a blood born Prince of Egypt. Now he’s just murdered someone because of his mental turmoil. He can’t take it, especially since he throws an Egyptian down to his death in the same way he has seen the Pharaoh throw down babies to crocodiles in that despicable mural. And so, telling Rameses II that he’s not who his brother thinks he is, flees Egypt altogether.

Moses Returns to Egypt

When Moses returns to Egypt, Aaron’s no longer as timid as he was the first time they met. This time, Aaron speaks out affrontively, almost vindictively, at Moses. Because Moses is no longer the prince of Egypt, Aaron doesn’t have to be afraid of him. Angrily, he asks Moses how it feels when he’s struck to the ground.

I want to point this out: it’s not just that Aaron’s talking about the slaves as a whole and the fact Moses’ actions against Rameses II have backlashed against them. He’s also talking about something a bit more personal.

The last time they were together, Moses forced Aaron’s sister to the ground.

There’s a reason we always see Aaron with his hands and arms wrapped around Miriam’s shoulders. It’s to grab her to make sure she’s not going to do anything “crazy”… and it’s to protect her. Because he loves and cares about her. Aaron is out there, trying to watch out for her, trying to make excuses for her, trying to physically save her from harm… always.

So he’s going to be extremely spiteful at the man who’s struck his sister to the ground. And he wants to rub it in Moses’ face now that the opposite has happened.

The thing is, Miriam doesn’t have a problem with Moses’ old actions. She actually turns and scolds Aaron for his shameful words. You’ll notice that the look on Aaron’s face is shock. He didn’t expect this and feels chastised. He lets Miriam approach Moses. For, to Miriam, bygones are bygones, and the fact that Moses has doubled their workloads as slaves doesn’t anger her. Instead, she steps up to speak words of thankfulness, faith, and encouragement to her brother. 

Whereas Moses left her crying on her knees the last time they talked…

…this time Miriam kneels down with him.

Suddenly, Miriam doesn’t seem like the crazy one. Aaron now seems more like the one who’s out of touch. Miriam and Moses are able to bond in this moment, while Aaron stands there at the periphery.

This conversation is enough to encourage Moses to immediately speak to Rameses again. Moses turns the river to blood through God’s power and all the Hebrews see it. It gladdens Miriam. Aaron’s still in the dark, though. He complains that the Egyptian priests were able to turn water to blood, too, and that they’re still slaves. He’s still thinking about life in the moment rather than hoping to what’s ahead, what God can do.

We can see that Moses has adopted himself into the Hebrew people, now, rather than the Egyptians. He speaks words of encouragement and faith just like Miriam would. He points out to all the people that the Pharaoh might be able to take their lives, but they cannot take away their faith, and that God has good things in store for his people.

Moses and Aaron Connect

Moses and Aaron don’t actually connect emotionally until after the Exodus begins and the Hebrews are given their freedom.

Aaron has been so concerned with earthly matters, but it’s bogged him down and made him live without faith. Now, he smiles for the first time, leaving behind his old “home,” and journeying away from Egypt as a free man.

Aaron, while traveling behind Moses, reaches up and gently places his hand on his younger brother’s shoulder. He gives a small smile and says no words. Moses responds back with a similar smile and places his hand on top of Aaron’s. It’s a silent exchange, but it’s full of meaning. Aaron apologizes here for being doubtful, faithless, and rude towards Moses. Moses forgives him. At this point, they accept one another as brothers.

The body language completely metamorphoses between Moses, Miriam, and Aaron. At the start of the movie, you see only tension between Moses and his other siblings. But now, all three of them willingly stand together, and there’s not a single shot where they’re not together now.

Moses has transitioned from his Egyptian family to his Hebrew one.

And if that’s not cool enough, visually you can tell that he was always meant to be with the Hebrews. Rameses II and many of the Egyptians are garbed in blue and aqua. Moses, Miriam, and Aaron all wear primarily red. (There’s actually a movie-wide color symbolism of blue representing Egypt and red representing the Hebrews and God. But that’s another analysis in and of itself).

Aaron Demonstrates His Trust

The coolest moment between Moses and Aaron happens when Moses parts the Red Sea.

Aaron throughout the movie has been the one grounded on earth, on facts, on pessimism, on fear. He has done it to survive, and it’s arguably prudent. After the Exodus happens, though, everything changes. He understands the importance of faith and what it can do when you believe. Aaron smiles. Then he doesn’t quit smiling. And, once Moses parts the Red Sea, it’s Aaron who looks to Moses and decides to go first. He has come so far that he displays this great trust in Moses and enters the passageway between the waters.

Not only that, but when Moses is being pursued by the Egyptian army, Aaron screams out in worry for Moses. He wants to make sure that Moses makes it to safety.

And can we please talk about these hugs at the end of the movie? How amazing and wonderful they are?

How far we’ve come from the start of the movie where they were cringing and shouting at one another…

Aaron charges up behind Moses and squeezes him from behind. There’s great happiness and affection in that embrace. These are totally siblings. Totally.

Then Moses and Miriam hug. Moses stares at Miriam for a long time before they give each other a warm hug, and Moses just says two words: “Thank you.”

Those two words wrap up everything that has transpired between the three siblings throughout the entire movie.

He’s thanking her for believing him. For believing in God. For talking to him that one night they first met. Because of Miriam’s faith - that seeming “craziness” - he has been transformed as a man, learned to trust God himself, and delivered his true family out of Egypt.
