I KNOW what you’re trying to DO there gamefreak

art blog | twitter

everyone was doing it i had to have a go

can’t believe the mysterious red robes are a bunch of science nerds

i don’t imagine my princesses in the same way
others do, either kissing their husband and in
marital perfection or the cynical version where they are drunk
in the kitchen, living out their happily ever afters in
a haze of poor decisions, no,

i think cinderella becomes a fashion designer, i think
she stops smoking and takes back her name and
ends up making money and being a spokesperson
for abuse victims, i think right now if ella was alive
she’d be laughing over a pumpkin-spice latte and
her empire is the most body-inclusive in fashion

i think snow-white becomes an activist, i think she
studies genetics and i think she will allow
no person with a disability to go homeless, i think
whenever someone makes a joke about seven small men,
she whips around and asks them what exactly their problem is
because there is nothing wrong with
any of her friends

i think aurora is a sleep disorder doctor
and a psychologist, she uses hypnosis to help people
who can’t quite escape the thicket inside of their brains and
i think she’s working on developing a pill for people
with chronic insomnia even though everyone still teases her
about that one bout of narcolepsy and one day she admits
she actually was awake for most of it and just studying

i think ariel has shut down marine life poaching in
as many parts of her country as she can, i think that
she’s got teams working to clean up oil spills
and she’s building windmills in her backyard because
she’d rather have the “eyesore” than know someone is
drilling in her home, i think she has degrees in environmental
science and marine biology, i think she’s got a side project for scuba divers and oceanography and is devising a way for
mermaids to visit her land without giving up their tails

i think belle is a veterinarian and runs her practice
out of her father’s house
where his inventions have saved the lives of at least
ninety dogs and i think that she is a teacher in her free time
and has raised gaston’s eight kids to be nothing short
of polite and well-mannered and i think that she takes
frequent trips outside of her little quiet town but
always comes home again

i think jasmine is a feminist in every aspect, i believe
she works with shelters and soup kitchens and makes sure
nobody starves in her city ever again, i think she sets up
homes for homeless women, i think she marches in rallies
and has a school specifically for gifted girls that
were almost married off to strange men

see, i think when we cast these women as only a prize to be won
and that their life stops as soon as the credits roll, i think
when we joke about how everything went south
right after it all,
we’re telling girls, “you will regret that you ever fell in love
or believed in magic when you were small,” see
you can believe in happy endings, but believe too
in the princesses themselves,
believe that marriage isn’t the only goal
a girl can set for herself,

believe that if these girls fought to stay alive
when an evil queen was chasing them,
if they fought to give up their nature
for the chance of more adventure, if they fought
the sultan himself and society’s expectations:
something tells me that their happily ever after
isn’t resting on their laurels, something tells me
they’d seek just a little more,
something tells me that they’d keep fighting until
there is a happy ending for every single
little girl

believe in yourself, princess, and know that
even if you want a career and husband
and twelve happy children,
you are not deluding yourself of anything. it is
completely possible to actually have
everything

it is okay for you to want a job and a home
and a family and a kingdom. you are strong enough.
you would handle it.

please don’t let anyone
tell you
different.

—  sit tall today, my love. your dreams are valid and you are always good enough. // r.i.d

if you can’t handle uncle petyr at his worst then you clearly need to stick to your fav “cinnamon rolls” or whatever the kidz call them today

thelonelyjournal-keeper  asked:

So how'd you manage to get into OWCA, Heinz? I can't imagine they (read: Monogram) were very keen on the idea at first. And what does Perry think of this? What's it like working with him in such a different capacity?

I’m not really sure what Perry thinks, to be honest. He’s pretty quiet about the whole thing. I know he’s struggling not being a lone agent anymore, but he does seem to at least like his team. I’m mostly looking forward to when my probation’s up in a couple months and I can try for my Colors. So far it hasn’t really been too different from when Perry and I’ve teamed up before. Being a Good Guy’s pretty good so far, really. Thanks for the ask! -Heinz

Behind every hero is a story of sadness…

Anyway I feel for Pidge in s1e1 and s1e2 because I too have been mistaken as my sibling’s S/O by peers and it’s w e i r d

i dont like the implication that yuuri is unusual in that he doesnt have any special talent for skating for two reasons-

1) there are some aspects of skating that its pretty clear yuuri is specifically talented in, in that he does it better than anyone else. specifically his step sequences, and his ability to move with the music

2) it implies that most other skaters’ talent isnt actually based in extremely hard work, and kinda just pushes that whole “people are good at what they do because of natural ability”, which is fake and simultaneously disencourages younger people/beginners and ignores the effort experts put into what they do

plus i feel like its falling into the trap of believing what yuuri says as an unreliable narrator, ie the whole ‘im a dime a dozen skater’ thing (when hed just got into the gpf the year before, really yuuri???)

like i know takeshi says it too, but idk if his words 100% prove that to be true, expecially since he has no other professional skaters to compare yuuri to.

in fact, victor, who knows plenty of internationally famous skaters, states that both yuuri and yurio are more mediocre than they think- implying that  yurio who, given his young age, and his abilities, we would expect to be ‘a natural’, is not.
