wanderer and ian

Today's Cartoons
  • Gravity Falls: Two Kids spending summer vacation with their weird uncle in a town where bizarre things happen with a big mystery. Also about trust, growing up with maturity rather than grow apart from family, always sticking by your friends through the roughest times.
  • Wander Over Yonder: An Optimistic alien who wants to help people across the galaxy. Also wants to make sure no one is ever helpless like he was and help villains rather than hurt or beat them just because they're bad.
  • Star vs. The Forces of Evil: A magical princess from another dimension fights evil with her best friend while having magical and fun adventures. Also shows the fear of the future, fear of growing up, and realistic crushes/relationships/love triangles and how to face them sensibly while growing as a person.
  • Steven Universe: A young boy being partially raised by aliens and has space related adventures while learning about his mother. Also about love and acceptance for everyone and character development that's relatable and real.
  • Voltron-Legendary Defender: A reboot of an 80's show that didn't have much to offer centering around five people who are chosen to defend the universe. Also about teamwork always works, everybody has each others backs, and helping anyone in need no matter how small they seem. Becoming more than just a team, they've become a family all while saving the universe from a former hero.
  • O.K K.O! Let's be Heroes: A boy wants to become a great hero like his friends and family and fight evildoers. Also explains that a hero's journey is long and hard but can be achieved by focus and discipline, while showing that everyone has different sides to them including dark ones and can grow everyday.
  • Society: They're just kids shows, people. 😑

Favorite things to fall asleep with at night

Ian and Wanda . . .

So I’m reading The Host and I got to the part where Kyle tried to kill Wanda and Ian gave her to Doc and kissed her forehead good-bye. OMG! I will ship them F-O-R-E-V-E-R! They. Are. So. Beautiful.

 

CANNOT WAIT FOR THE MOVIE! I WILL BE ORDERING MIDNIGHT PREMIERE TICKETS MONTHS IN ADVANCE!

Day Twenty Five: LOVE this book

As much as I hesitated to trust anything by Stephanie Meyer after Twilight, I’m so glad I gave this book a chance. I 100% adore it and highly recommend it to anyone who isn’t sure about whether to read it - you won’t be disappointed.

Cartoons: Then and Now
  • Then: Mostly made to increase the sale of toys and other merchandise, very standard plots and settings, likeable characters, writing appeals to smaller kids despite some plotholes, villains are just evil to be evil, bland shipping because the plot demands it, very small but excited fan base that remember the show fondly later in life.
  • Now: Toys are created after the show's premiere and are in high demand of any merchandise they can come up with, complex and overarching storylines all to make one plot, amazing and fluid animation and backgrounds that makes you more intrigued, writing is creative, deep and parallels modern day problems and teaches how to face them, villains are just as complex as the heroes and sometimes do wrong things for the right reasons, characters are so relatable and likeable they become instant favorites and viewers identify with them, helps people with depression and anxiety and loves the constant positive influences, shipping two characters actually make sense because their chemistry is amazing and you want them together, with a fan base that will be loyal several years later, inspire to create more cartoons, speaks to new generations of fans.
  • Long story short: Cartoons are one of the greatest inventions of all time.

another meme i won’t finish — ten movies:

The Host: “It’s not the face, but the expressions on it. It’s not the voice, but what you say. It’s not how you look in that body, but the thing you do with it. You are beautiful.”

What was it that made this human love so much more desirable to me than the love of my own kind? Was it because it was exclusive and capricious? The souls offered love and acceptance to all. Did I crave a greater challenge?…Or was it simply better somehow? Because these humans hate with so much fury, was the other end of the spectrum that they could love with more heart and zeal and fire?

Thank you for making cartoons awesome 😎🏆🎆🎇🎉🎊

book pairings:Ian O'Shea and Wanderer
from The Host by Stephenie Meyer

Was it fair that Ian would suffer? He deserved happiness if anyone did. It wasn’t fair or right or even sane. How could I do this to him?
I love you, I whispered.
Don’t say that like you’re saying goodbye.
But I had to. I, the soul called Wanderer, love you, human Ian. And that will never change, no matter what I might become. I worded it carefully, so that there would be no lie in my voice.
