endless list of favorite female characters: Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins (1964)

“Now the, the qualifications… item one: a cheery disposition. I am never cross. Item two: rosy cheeks… obviously. Item three: play games, all sorts. Well, I’m sure the children will find my games extremely diverting.”

history meme (french edition)  →  free choice: relationships (2/?) Claude de Guise and his daughter Marie.

“[Claude and Antoinette] oversaw their daughter’s upbringing themselves and kept her close in a way that many other parents and children of their class must surely have envied. For the next four years, Marie was Claude and Antoinette’s only child and revelled in having her beloved parents’ attention entirely on herself. While growing up, Marie worshipped her charismatic father more than any other man in the world; when the devastating news arrived of her beloved father’s death on 12 April 1550, her mind was made up and she began to make plans for departure.” M. Clegg, Scourge of Henry VIII: the Life of Marie de Guise.

Julie Andrews Rant

I have two words for you.

Julie. Andrews.

That woman is my literal hero. I would actually kill a man to meet her. You think I’m exaggerating but I assure you I am not.

The Sound of Music, first of all. Like holy cow what a precious lil baby and badass temporary nun with the voice of an ANGEL.

Mary Poppins.
Nanny and magic af and hella charming .

Fast forward.

The Princess Diaries, like whoa. She lost her voice and then she gets on screen and is a literal QUEEN and has a romantic storyline while teaching Mia to be a princess and the scene with the streetcar is the best. And THEN Princess Diaries 2 where she SINGS on screen even though she had surgery before and lost her voice like how brave are you??

And then any interview with her like she is the picture of class and grace and joy and loveliness and she wears pantyhose in a way that makes them look comfortable, what sorcery is that?? And she’s also an actual DAME and acts like everything is no big deal.

Just

Julie Andrews.
