ok so in the timeless classic Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement it is declared that mia can’t be queen without a husband, but the law as it is stated is “Genovia shall have no queen lest she be bound in matrimony” and in fact makes no mention of a husband and all im saying is that mia really should have married lilly and they should have been double queens together

When I say “love,” the sound comes out of my mouth and it hits the other person’s ear, travels through this Byzantine conduit in their brain, you know, through their memories of love or lack of love, and they register what I’m saying and they say yes, they understand. But how do I know they understand? Because words are inert. They’re just symbols. They’re dead, you know? And so much of our experience is intangible. So much of what we perceive cannot be expressed. It’s unspeakable. And yet, you know, when we communicate with one another, and we feel that we’ve connected, and we think that we’re understood, I think we have a feeling of almost spiritual communion. And that feeling might be transient, but I think it’s what we live for.

i havent gushed about this yet and i need to

Te’ka being Te’fiti is just such fucking perfect writing and not just b/c of plot resolution

because volcanos are always thought of erratic, destructive, evil etc but more importantly they literally build the foundation of islands, volcanic soil lets everything thrive …. so te’fiti without her heart is all the destruction and chaos of lava and volcanos but with her heart she harness it into bring life into this worldd

CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT HOW AMAZING THAT IS?? OR?? 

idk what everyone is up to this weekend but please please please, if you have time or the inclination or anything, please go see the movie Colossal with Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. It uses the whole godzilla-esque typical monster story as a very effective allegory/vehicle for a story about alcoholism, abusive and destructive relationships and control issues. I would put a tentative trigger warning on it for people who have been in abusive relationships because I found the portrayal to be somewhat confronting but ultimately the film is just? so good? it’s a bit odd and the acting is actually excellent and the storytelling and the message and the way it portrays the relationship is worth seeing 

i don’t understand people who still drag la la land…this movie came out on december 9th which was over 4 months ago?? do you have nothing better to do??? are your friends worried?? have you engaged in any extracurricular activities?? does the thought of la la land torment you so much that you want to, nay, NEED to write about every bad aspect of the movie???
