My favourite part of the movie.
Goddamnit, I nearly spit cereal all over my computer.
It took me a while to realise it was Matt speaking, not the Doctor.
same until i realized that the Doctor would have forgotten as soon as he looked away
Both commissions for mkhunterz of her fic Tramps Like Us~
During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeatpred several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.
CHRIST HOW DID I MISS THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS
girls think having a period sucks but try having to fix your penis discreetly through your pocket
having the insides of your organs shed and come out through your genitals does not compare to having displaced balls sorry
none of you can do it discreetly anyways
we see you
everyone sees you
i care a LOT about the fact that one of the keys to the day being saved in cap2 lies in nick fury’s wounded eye
it’s great. his eye is a damaged asset, a liability. fury’s lost his peripheral vision, has to turn to see all the monitors, is permanently visibly scarred and taken out of the ground forces of the spy game. he’s a tactician first because he’s good at it and second because he’s no longer invisible and unknowable. and all this time it is this hollow, ruined thing, glassy and opaque. in a movie where what a thing is goes beyond what it appears to be, and beyond its utility or lack thereof — Bucky’s arm, the ultimate weapon, is a forced prosthetic and constant reminder of a tortured, brainwashed conscription; the helicarriers, designed with Mr. Clean Energy’s technology to defend the world from terror, would instead rid the world of its dissenters, innovators, its brilliance; the examples here are ridiculous; ‘who do you want me to be?’ — nick fury’s ruined, useless eye is the absolute key to undoing everything. a literal part of yourself that you once thought to be dead/dormant/irreparably destroyed, is what will set in motion the destruction of a false reality. the way that scars appear and don’t appear in this movie warrants its own post altogether.
and this ruined, scarred flesh which distorts the perfect body of reality exists not only for ourselves, but for our enemies, too. hydra calculated its plan based on the assumption that those pieces of our heroes that were damaged and destroyed would stay that way. hydra banked that the blind spots they created and that they discovered in others would remain blind spots, negative assets. once disabled, always disabled. and thus natasha’s sense of uninfluenced self, steve’s understanding of ‘the good guys,’ sam’s training and proficiency with his wings, zola’s circuits and hard drives, bucky’s very identity, nick fury’s eye — these are all things that both the heroes and their adversaries assume to be null factors. unchanging, irreparable losses/givens.
what we learn in cap2 is that we have to bring to light and then destroy the things others have mutilated and robbed us of in order to take back the parts of us and our world that they’ve stolen. expose the scars and use them to take back more than they cost. natasha has to reveal her non-identity and all of her sordid history in order to save the day; steve who has never run away from a fight in his life has to realign his priorities from fighting the bad guy to fighting for him to not fighting at all; the winter soldier’s mission/persona is compromised by his brain cells firing in ways the chair was meant to prevent. your blind spots, your scar tissue did not render you useless, will instead become the sword with which you bring down evil. a flesh wound does not ruin the spirit. they might have taken something precious from your body, but they left you with this scar and from them you will take everything. they will tell you that an eye for an eye will make us both blind, so you will keep both eyes open.

When Dean says, “Dude, on my car, he showed up naked, covered in bees”, he is not saying Cas showed up on his car naked/bee-adorned. He is swearing on Baby that Cas showed up naked and covered in bees.
This has been a PSA.
…this is life changing…
yes, baby was in storage from 7.6 Slash Fiction until the end of 7.23 Survival of the Fittest
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
So, tomorrow I’m gonna see How to Train Your Dragon 2, which is coming out… tomorrow (I’m in Italy, and apparently cinemas here are acquiring the bad habit of scheduling my favourite movies later than their worldwide counterparts, so yes, I’m finally seeing this movie after two months of waiting and swearing).
