watched brave

My own thoughts from robot series I've read/watched
  • TF MTMTE/Lostlight: Bunch of confused emotional gays travelling lost in space
  • Transformers movie: Human lovebirds needed to save Optimus' ass
  • Transformers G1: Possibly drunk robots
  • Iron Leaguer: Bullying the special boy then doesn't know what's happening in the end.
  • Brave Police J-Decker: Sad robots in duty
  • Gaogaigar: Who is this long haired human
  • Astroboy: Confused of how to live life with humans
  • Megaman: Too many boyfriends inviting him

If you could be a girl for twenty-four hours, what would you do?

Millennials Protesting in America Tonight

For the people surprised by the fact that millennials are fighting so hard to protect the rights of their brothers and sisters after this election I have to ask why?

We’re the kids who grew up side by side with the golden trio watching as a band of misfits took down a corrupt villain.

We adopted the three finger salute to show our solidarity against those who advocated for injustice.

We grew up appreciating each other’s differences and recognizing that we can all be Divergent and together take down a system who wishes to divide us.

We grew up watching strong young women rise above societies expectations to become the heroes over the damsels and break glass ceilings for those who come after them.

We grew up watching young men be brave, accepting, and strong without judgement for their moments of true compassion, of fear, of emotions other than tough without labeling them as weak and pathetic.

We were raised to be the change we hope to see in the world by the heroes we love, and my hope is one day we can tell our kids this story and the acts of heroism, unity and strength that we brought to this fight and they too can be inspired to rise against whatever evil and hate the future may hold by knowing we did not surrender tonight.

What I really love about Prince Caspian as a movie (and I honestly don’t remember if this is in the books it’s been so long??) is that it’s about how things never happen the same way twice. For some that’s a good thing. Edmund completely comes into his own in this movie, as a king and as a young man, and it’s wonderful to watch him be understanding, brave, and diplomatic where before he wasn’t any of those things.

For Peter and Susan, however, it’s harder. Especially Peter. He spends the whole movie lashing out at others and making stupid choices because things aren’t the same. His frustration and anger may not be canon but they’re very human and understandable.

It is heartbreaking when things or people or places aren’t as you remember them. It aches in a way you can’t explain because it’s a reality you won’t admit. And when you try to fight it or ignore it (because you don’t want it to be true) it pulls you to pieces underneath your skin. 

I love the way Peter learns how to deal with that, the fact that he learns to let go of something he loves. Which is so hard because when you love something it’s the love that’s making you hold on so tightly to it, right? But of course, paradoxically, the only way you’ll ever keep the thing you love is to release your death grip on it. 

By the end of the movie, Peter knows that. He gets it. It’s alright. It’s not what I thought it would be but it’s alright Lu. He faces the pain head on and somehow that makes it bearable. And that really does make everything alright without lessening the reality of what he’s losing. Heartbreaking and hopeful. Lightness and heaviness. Bittersweet. Love shot through with the pain of loss, loss illuminated by love. I love that so much. It’s so distinctly Narnia.
