I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.

I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).

They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.

Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work.  That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming.  I love this.

Go Forth and Educate Yourselves!

I’d also highly recommend watching the Jane Elliot Brown-eye/Blue-eye experiments, which can be found here:

Not only should you educate yourself but use this for good. Look around you and help others who don’t have this privilege. Hiring, donating, community service, etc.

After this post went viral, the original artist had to delete their tumblr because they were inundated with death threats.

There were people more offended by this comic than offended by the existence of racial disparities—to the point where they threatened this artist’s life.

Wow. White people at it once again.

Alright, now this is how you portray a cute makeover scene, so take notes.

It’s nothing quite as boring and terribly cliched as “BOOKISH BUT GENERICALLY CUTE GIRL TAKES OFF GLASSES AND LETS HAIR DOWN,” we’ve got the real deal here. (for reference: from left to right, it’s Mayaya, Jiji, Tsukimi, Chieko, and Banba)

First off, note that none of the girls wearing glasses lose them to present themselves as more “conventionally attractive.” They are instead used as a charm point, and Tsukimi’s outfit is even color-coordinated to match her red frames. For that matter, Mayaya even GAINS sunglasses, to keep her eyes covered while her bangs are styled in a trendier manner. A similar tactic is used for Banba, whose unmanageable afro is covered by a wig to give her a cute hairstyle that still frames her face in a way that fits her.

None of the girls’ unique facial features are downplayed in the animation, either. Mayaya is still drawn with her prominent cheekbones, Tsukimi still has her bushy eyebrows and freckles, Banba’s nose is still drawn as simple tiny nostils, and no one’s facial structure or body type suddenly seems to shift to “super generically pretty,” as seen in so many awkward Hollywood makeovers.

Perhaps the best thing about this scene (and something that Kuranosuke explicitly points out as he’s styling the girls) is that Chieko ends up requiring literally no changes. As she already has the habit of wearing formal kimonos as casual wear, she instead ends up benefiting solely from being grouped with the other girls in their trendy attire, and that’s considered her own unique form of beauty.

IT’S A REALLY GREAT SCENE FROM A REALLY GREAT ANIME, BASICALLY.

“See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.

Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.” Emily Asher-Perren (via margaerystyrells)

“Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.” my uncle left this comment on his friend’s Facebook status, a white British man who was bragging about how easy it is to be a native English speaker when trekking to different nations.
