this give me chills!!

5

I feel so…light lately. So…excited for what is to come. Not really sure how to describe it, not sure what the proper words are, but I find myself smiling more than I have in a really long time and…I don’t think the way things have played out in the last few months are by chance. There is always a bigger plan at work and you know when you just feel…life’s magic? And the universe/God saying, “I see you. Trust me. You just wait.” Hm idk…it’s very…beautiful and gives me the chills

Today has been really beautiful and kind and lovely and this wonderful woman practically gave me a free manicure without the color on my nails but touched up my cuticles, etc. So, so so nice. 

I usually take off from running on Sundays but it was 40 degrees out and sunny today and too beautiful not to have my feet hit the ground

It still kind of scares me every time I watch Enemy of My Enemy. Just look at how Hiccup and Dagur swapped personalities, sort of. Even Dagur said that Hiccup doesn't seem like himself. It gives me chills. Hiccup is someone to be afraid of when he is mad.

Ah, this is really cool commentary. You’re right that there’s something about Dagur and Hiccup switching typical personalities in “Enemy of My Enemy.” Dagur seeks to be someone promoting peace and helping others - something that usually Hiccup is trying to do. Hiccup, meanwhile, is the more suspicious one, and is brooding horribly about how Viggo outsmarted him.

It’s what makes Dagur’s conversation to Hiccup so meaningful when he tells Hiccup that stewing in these emotions won’t be good:

Dagur: So, you want to tell me why you’re out here on your own?
Hiccup: Not really. Let’s just say you aren’t the only one who changed after Viggo Grimborn.
Dagur: Hm. That stuff can kill you from the inside, Hiccup. Revenge, anger, obsession… trust me, I know. It can make you do things you never thought you were capable of, cause you to take chances, make mistakes.  if that doesn’t end you, it’ll eat away at you slowly.

Dagur’s motivations as an antagonist were centered around revenge, anger, and obsession. He became infuriated at Hiccup and sought to harm him, obsessing over having Hiccup dead and the Night Fury captured. Now that Dagur’s head has cleared, he can see Hiccup falling down the same emotions. He sees that Hiccup is brooding, upset, even a bit obsessed about his enemy. He can speak from personal experience about what Hiccup is currently undergoing.

Of course they’re not exactly switched, as you also say. Dagur is still Dagur; Hiccup is still Hiccup. This isn’t the first time that Hiccup has gotten grouchy and sore, and it probably won’t be his last. But the fact that Dagur has had Hiccup-like experiences here and Hiccup has Dagur-like experiences… it’s what makes this episode so enjoyable. It helps us get at that understanding that we all have the potential to be good people seeking peace… we all have the potential to be bad people focused on hate and revenge. It shows how even people who frequently seek out good - people like Hiccup - can fall to unhealthy emotions. The problem with Viggo is eating at Hiccup slowly.

And by experiencing what one another feels, Dagur and Hiccup can finally reach peace. They save one another and go separate ways with positive feelings in their hearts. They understand each other’s hearts a bit more. They can appreciate the other. They can see the good in one another. They, in a way, have brought out the good in one another by the end of the episode.

My dad is a huge Zeppelin fan. When he was stationed in California my mom flew to see him. She was pregnant with me at the time. Zeppelin was playing a concert one night and he ‘made’ her go with him. Big and pregnant my mom sat on the side while my dad watched.

Also- I love Heart- her voice gives me chills.

that one moment you just know a movie has such an impact on you. just the music, the actors, the scenery, story, everything. when you feel chills and know that this movie means something to you. to feel so blessed that you are able to witness it for the first time, and then feel the same way every time you see it. it never gets old, it never goes out of style, it’ll always be the masterpiece you know it is. its one of the best feelings ever.

The Russian dub finished the Chara story and Golden Flowers!

So if you’re Russian then there’s a dub for you! :3

They’re really great! I’m honestly rewatching the entire dub because it’s been a while. I don’t speak a bit of Russian, but I still know what happens so I can still enjoy it! :D

I WROTE MY WAY OUT OF HELL I WROTE MY WAY TO REVOLUTION I WAS LOUDER THAN THE CRACK IN THE BELL I WROTE ELIZA LOVE LETTERS UNTIL SHE FELL I WROTE ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION AND DEFENDED IT WELL AND IN THE FACE OF IGNORANCE AND RESISTANCE I WROTE FINANCIAL SYSTEMS INTO EXISTENCE

AND WHEN MY PRAYERS TO GOD WERE MET WITH INDIFFERENCE I PICKED UP A PEN I WROTE MY OWN DELIVERANCE
