For me, it’s more about wanting there to be more female directors. There’s no shortage of women who want to make films. There are so many male directors and so many male-driven films and there are significantly fewer female-driven films and female directors — and that’s not because they don’t exist.

Marie is the teacher everyone trusts and loves. If a student is struggling or acting out, she will take them to the side and try to find out what’s wrong. If it gets too bad, she’ll invite them for tea and get to the bottom of the problem. If a kid had problems with their parents, she can offer them a place to stay (and occasionally Stein takes care of the problem for them). Marie is the sweetest teacher at the DWMA and you can’t tell me other wise.

i understand why people are upset that soul and maka didn’t go canon but

for fuck’s sake, people

they’re like 14. chill. they’re kids. what did you want? they’re literal actual children. you wanted them to make out on screen? we all know they’ll eventually be canon, hopefully when they’re adults and can navigate their emotions in a comfortable, mature way but

for now they are actual goddamn KIDS

calm down
