someone needs to give her some more movies

youtube

Emily James is just your typical little three year old princess. She loves nail polish, frilly dresses, and, when she can get her hands on it, mom’s lipstick. What makes Emily unique is that by age three her golden [brown] locks were long enough to be made into a wig for a child with cancer. As Emily states in the video, “just cut some off and give it to a kid”. What an incredible lesson to learn from a 3 year old, when we have lots of something - don’t hold onto it, give it away to someone else who needs it more. Her favorite movie is “Tangled” and she is especially fond of her Rapunzel dolly, which is why ‘Dolly’ got a hair cut too. When Emily said she would let Uncle Matthew cut her hair, she insisted that he would cut 'Dolly’s’ hair first. 

Emily’s mom and dad told her about donating hair wigs to be made for kids with cancer. They sat down and explained to her that to donate her hair, she would need to cut it fairly short, and that it would be a long time before she had long hair again. They looked at pictures together of little kids with no hair, they looked at pictures of wigs and they also looked at shorter styles - and she still wanted to make the donation. It probably didn’t hurt that in the final scenes of Tangled, Rapunzel is sporting a pretty cute bob. With that in mind, the two of them, Emily and 'Dolly’, booked an appointment with 'Uncle Matthew’.

ok, honestly, tauriel is a precious fiery cinnamon roll and is a brilliant character regardless of whether or not she has a romantic pairing right? (book purists have been kinda hurtful lately.) it's okay if you don't publish this ask but i just really need some assurance from someone i know is willing to defend tauriel. i'm usually nervous to talk to people online but your art gives me such a warm happy feeling that i decided to just go ahead and send this. thank you :)

Darling, I’ll defend the hell out of my fiery cinnamon roll elf, you can be sure of that. I LOVE HER SO MUCH.

I personally think Tauriel was a very important inclusion to the Hobbit movies. For one, they treated her well as a character; they didn’t try to ‘empower’ her by making her more masculine (a sad trend for movies), and neither was she put down with gender-based insults, and the lack of both those things was so refreshing. Regardless of the nature of her relationship with Kíli, she’s compassionate, and in a world full of darkness and war that’s important. She’s one of the only characters who doesn’t seem to be driven to war by treasure, old feuds, or following orders on behalf of treasure/feuds. She’s a skilled fighter but is motivated to protect people. She defies orders in favour of following her instincts and stands up to her King, knowing she’ll be facing consequences for doing so. And OF COURSE she’s flawed, but people are? Could her inclusion have been written better? Yes, but I’m pretty happy with what we had.

The only other elf women with speaking parts in the Middle Earth movies are royalty. Not everyone can be a copy of Arwen or Galadriel, and not everyone can relate to them. So it’s nice to see someone of a different social class and position, rather than having all women represented by two Noldor elves. Comments like “I wish we had Dís instead-” are not helpful to the representation issue because that’s asking for one woman over another instead of asking for MORE women in the first place, when we already have so few. 

Also, The Hobbit is from Bilbo’s point of view and since he wasn’t captured by the Mirkwood Guard, he would have never met Tauriel anyway, and therefore wouldn’t have mentioned her in his tale. (“But Tolkien didn’t intend-” ok ok calm down book purists, I am well aware, I have been informed about what Tolkien did or did not intend.) If you’re going to complain about a character being created for the movies, complain about goddamn ALFRID, not Tauriel.

It’s totally ok not to like her but, Mahal’s sake,  it’s not ok to hurt people who do, and I’m sick of seeing Tauriel fans treated like shit. 

BE PROUD OF YOUR TAURIEL LOVE, ANON.
