one of the things I’m incredibly grateful to Tumblr for is showing me just how natural and amazing it is for Harry Potter, James Potter, and Hermione Granger to be POC. I always imagined all of them as white, because I’m white and as an unfortunate result of that I grew up projecting my own race onto everything and making all my headcanons whitewashed and boring.

It really irritates me that there are people who shoot down these POC headcanons and argue that these characters are canonically white because a) be careful or someone might think you’re racist!! and b) don’t trash on other peoples’ headcanons that aren’t hurting you and c) they make perfect sense as POC and the story is more interesting with POC as a whole and d) don’t be a fucking racist

i’ve seen more posts of people being excited for Home than this movie, which made me upset because this movie comes out before Home does (not that i am saying that you shouldn’t praise Home as well). and as for Big Hero 6 (a movie that also comes out after the Book of Life) and the people saying that there is a lack of representation of Asians in media, i feel you. why? because there is a bigger lack of hispanics, and i agree Disney messed up, you be upset. but be happy for Hispanics as well because we finally got an animated movie representing us and our culture. so please go see this movie when it comes out.

that is all i ask.

When I saw the trailer for this when I went to see the Lego movie it was so stunning I knew it was a movie I had to see

Also it looks like it;s by the same person who did El tirge 

which was a great and fun show 

Fun fact: The creators of El Tigre are the people in charge of basically making the entire movie.

I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

#LET ME TELL SOMETHING. DIVERSITY IS NOT JUST ABOUT HAVING DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS, OKAY? IT’S ABOUT HAVING ACTUAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE. CHARACTERS THAT ARE BELIEVABLE AND DIFFERENT AND REAL. I’M SO TIRED OF SEEING MOVIES, ANIMATED OR LIVE ACTION, HAVING FEMALE CHARACTERS WITH THE SAME FACE AND EXPRESSIONS AND BODY LANGUAGE WHO BARELY EXPRESS THEIR SEXUALITY OR HAVE NORMAL, NATURAL REACTIONS AND INTERACTIONS AND EXPRESSIONS THAT MATCH THEIR CHARACTERS WHEN AROUND THEIR LOVED ONES. LOOK AT THESE THREE. THEY ARE ALL STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, BUT HOW DIFFERENTLY THEY ACT AROUND THE MEN THEY LOVE. LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSION WHEN PLEASED OR EXCITED. JUST LOOK AT THESE THREE. LOOK HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE. HOW REAL. HOW BELIEVABLE. HOW BEAUTIFUL. 

#httyd2 #has some really good female characterswho stand alone and not in the shadow of a male counter part #ruffnut is probably more developed than her twin brother #astrid doesn’t need hiccup to save her she can fight all by herself and she is the one to comfort and give him advice #and valka is a fearless dragon warrior but also a loving mother who wants her son to forgive her and to approve of her and understand her choices

Just something to consider:

"Valka is just the latest example of the Superfluous, Flimsy Character disguised as a Strong Female Character. And possibly she’s the most depressing, considering Dragon 2’s other fine qualities, and considering how impressive she is in the abstract. The film spends so much time on making her first awe-inducing, then sympathetic, and just a little heartbreakingly pathetic in her isolation and awkwardness at meeting another human being. But once the introductions are finally done, and the battle starts, she immediately becomes useless, both to the rest of the cast and to the rapidly moving narrative. She faces the villain (the villain she’s apparently been successfully resisting alone for years!) and she’s instantly, summarily defeated. Her husband and son utterly overshadow her; they need to rescue her twice in maybe five minutes. Her biggest contribution to the narrative is in giving Hiccup a brief, rote ‘You are the Chosen One’ pep talk. Then she all but disappears from the film, raising the question of why the story spent so much time on her in the first place.”

Which monster wreaks havoc on your state?

I went from the land of the Poop Monster to the Cardiff Giant, an improvement I think.

Wait, WI has the Beast of Bray Road!? I have not heard of this! I thought ours was the Hodag!

While Rhinelander’s Hodag is more famous than the Beast of Bray Road, the Hodag was known to be a hoax almost immediately (and the legend stuck around because it was fun). The Beast of Bray Road (Wisconsin’s Werewolf) has remained an unresolved legend.

I only just now learned what the Beast of Busco was. 

It was a snapping turtle. 

We are not a clever people.

My favorite Indiana cryptid is the Crawfordsville Monster… which turned out to be a flock of birds.

We are a simple people with simple fears. 

Side note: I need to write that into a thing. 

The Beast of Busco isn’t TN?
We’ve got the Bell Witch, though.

Are you telling me that the Bunny Man is Virginia’s most noteworthy urban legend?

It was a dude in a Bunny Suit. He had an axe. He didn’t kill anyone. Maybe.
