One of the best moments of my childhood.
ZERO HAD ZERO FUCKS
I can’t even tell you how excited I was that they turned this book into a movie and it was good
I literally have absolutely no complaints with the movie at all. Once, my friend and I did comparisons from the book and the movie, and we found the only major difference was the fact that Stanley wasn’t heavy set when he arrived at the camp in the movie. The majority of the script is raw quotations from the book.
This is my favorite book to movie adaptation and it did everything Percy Jackson, Inkheart, and The Golden Compass didn’t.
yesss this was such a good book and film

Putting this on my main blog because I know everyone loves history as much as I do and needs to laugh.
I think this just gets funnier every time I see it.
I, like everyone else in the fandom, made many predictions about LOK when it was airing. Some of my predictions (such as the Equalists attacking Probending and Asami becoming a part of Team Avatar) were right! I couldn’t have been more wrong about Amon and Korra’s avatar state. However, I was surprised by how totally thrown for a loop I was by Mako and Bolin.
Warning: Incoming Mako/Bolin critique!
If that don’t float your boat then you can just stop reading right here!
I seriously thought Mako was going to have some sort of beef with Korra’s dangerous life style influencing his brother. I mean, dude’s had a hard life it seems. Thought he’d be desperate to maintain their relatively stable Probending lifestyle off of the streets; that he’d become more abrasive or controlling with the rise of Equalist threat or by Bolin wanting to be Korra’s handsome sidekick—I mean, Korra is baby’s first serious love interest after all! The Equalist Revolution would have given Bolin the chance to protect his presumed-more-capable brother, I assumed. Then again, I thought their “modern” bending style was going to be further addressed after the second episode, but that sure went no were.
Look, I’m not asking for “Zuko Alone” style flashbacks of their back alley baby days (although Bolin’s chubby cheek’s would be adorable to witness) and I’m not asking for a raging redtide of angst with one of the brothers exploding into chunks, or for Bo to call his brother a CHARRED MONSTER!!! But, come on… How are you gonna briefly mention such a tragic back story and not do anything with it? Show us how their dangerous upbringing has affected the boys’ relationship, for better and for worse, and how they must grow from it. Jiminy jilikers, by the end of Book 1, I was starting to think that the only reason BoBo and Scarfy were even orphans was because Bryke and the studio didn’t want to animated their parents nagging about curfews. I mean even Asami’s dead mother had some relevance to her and her father’s character arc, and Asami didn’t actually start being a character until episode 7 (I’m sorry I said that Salami *smooch*)!
And, yes. I did expect a conclusive character arc between Mako and Bolin by the finale. Some people might say that my expectations were too high for a single season, but hey, I wasn’t sure their would even be others seasons. I was looking at this as a twelve episode mini-series, and from what I gather, that’s how Bryke initially wrote it to be.
But why write this? Why bother when we’re getting three more seasons? Well, because I’ve heard from many pro-Makorra fans that Mako is a deep, expertly written character. And I’ve heard from some anti-Makorra fans that he is a disaster and the only way he can be redeemed is to die a horrible, horrible death in Book 2. I don’t agree with either of these arguments. As much as I like Bolin, he and Mako were a mess in Book 1, but they clearly have some potential that has been largely ignored by the writers. Do I expect amazing bonding from the boyzies in Book 2? Considering alleged bizarre love interests and motorcycle cop antics, probably not. But hey, four seasons. You never know…
Tagging this anti-mako rather than Mako because I’m pretty sure Mako fans won’t like this in their tag.
To love and kiss, to sweetly hold,
For the dancing and the dreaming.

I’ll keep your love inside me.

I AM THE QUEEN
The only time she’s ever had a problem is when she went to America once and passport control there couldn’t understand the concept.
So Buckingham Palace had to fax over a confirmation that yes she is the Queen
Petition for Jesse McCartney to do a cover of Simple and Clean.
if u can’t imagine ur otp on a long road trip together with no set destination in mind with things happening like their car breaking down at one point or stopping at a store to argue over what snacks to buy and taking turns driving while the other rests and checking into a little inn or hotel on the way and pulling off to just chill and look at the sky together do u really ship it
But what if the princess was in the tower because she was the dragon?
Like the queen gives birth and oops it’s this adorable little scaley lizard with tiny wings that she can never quite seem to fold right
None of the King’s advisors or doctors can explain it, no one can remember anyone who might have cursed the royal family, plus sire she’s clearly yours still I mean look at those eyes
They just kind of accept it and keep her in a tower so no one tries to slay her
The queen or castle servants reading bedtime stories to the toddler princess, who’s made a nest of her favorite toys and some jewelery she stole off her mother, and when she laughs little puffs of smoke come out of her mouth
The king being so proud when she flies across the room for the first time
And once the princess comes of age, confused knights breaking into the tower to find a twenty foot long dragon sitting at the vanity getting her horns polished by her handmaidens
and the “kidnapped” princess is her girlfriend?
It had to be done and i was the one to do it
