These are a few of my favorite things from The Sound of Music for themultifandommess! (by Tyler Feder)

love stories about monsters are THE BEST because the idea of conceptualizing love in a way that is not human and fundamentally cannot be human and is AN ENTIRELY SEPARATE LEVEL FROM THE HUMAN is so great. 

made better when one half of the relationship is human and suddenly we’re dealing with a) a human learning to love like a monster or b) a monster learning to translate their love into human terms and that’s

the best thing

to me.

which often goes hand in hand with MONSTER TRYING TO HUMANIZE THEMSELVES but that’s.. not necessary, don’t worry monster, you don’t need to do that. your capacity for love does not need to be whittled and softened into a human shape. it’s okay. your heart can be brutal and all consuming. you will learn to cope and you will learn to funnel it, pieces at a time, into something conceivable and measurable to the human mind. 

and i don’t strictly mean monster monsters because there’s room here for divinity (alpha and omega, first and last, holy terror OF THE HEART. apocalypses OF FEELING.) or ghosts, or non-human, non-monster outliers (superheroes, androids, idek), or even human beings who are self-made monsters and whose expression and understanding of love is two steps removed and two shades off. 

but, you know what i mean. 

love stories about monsters.

little things about Invader Zim
  • zim’s skin is liquefied, weaponized, and then used to douse the entire student body
  • GIR destroys a whole city in search of tacos, along with physically and violently attacking children for candy alone. these are separate episodes and not an isolated event.
  • Irken Invaders are equipped with self-destruct programs.
  • Some form of meat is either an obstacle or a tool on multiple occasions
  • there is a child whose name is The Letter M
  • Zim receives a beating heart as a Christmas donation from complete strangers passing him on the street
  • it makes sense that nobody would believe Zim is an alien, considering the characters of Pigboy and Shunk Wugga
  • Minimoose just… appears
  • Keef’s head absorbs milk.
  • Zim yelled “my tallest” for three hours and apparently nobody tried to end the transmission but instead wait for him to stop
  • Walnuts apparently ruined the 3D budget
  • The whole skool is hypnotized by a pimple
  • the general concept of Bolognius Maximus
  • a man trapped in a costume with the zipper stuck is considered an urban legend akin to bigfoot
  • Poop Dog
  • the fart noises that punctuate the dialogue every so often, especially during small interjections from characters
  • Professor Membrane has a grudge against Santa
  • characters frequently going wall-eyed
  • the cat chorus during Zim’s speech in FBI Warning of Doom
  • the entire episode of Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars
  • Zim attempting to weaponize Christmas is remembered two million years after the fact
  • Bloody GIR in general
  • Zim canonically traps strangers in conversation in which he vents about his frustrations. It is entirely plausible Zim would use Omegle.
  • Zim’s escape plan in Frycook What Came from All That Space
  • GIR’s form at the end of Halloween Spectacular of Spooky Doom
  • it is implied Zim is at least a century older than Dib and the other children, but repeatedly assaults/tortures them.
  • dysfunctional robots with no concept of right or wrong or even with a clear goal as robots attempt to eat a child. upon being thwarted, they attempt to murder Zim.
  • One of the Tallest VAs begged Jhonen to kill the Tallest in Backseat Drivers
  • Dib has successfully raised the dead on at least one occasion and Professor Membrane acknowledges this
  • piggy piggy piggy piggy”

these are a few of my favorite thingsmovies: the hobbits
↳ “
My dear Frodo, you asked me once if I had told you everything there was to know about my adventures. And while I can honestly say I’ve told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it. I am old, Frodo. I am not the same hobbit as I once was. It is time for you to know what really happened.”
