imagine somebody who’s immortal having a gigantic room where all the walls are completely covered up with photos.
each one is of a different loved one whom they have outlived
STOP RIGHT THERE
ahhh this already has like fifty million notes but i just thought this was a really sweet idea… i didn’t get to draw the room as big as i wanted too ;_; but this is only 1/4th of that room or something!!!!
guys there are two wedding photos
This entire movie was an emotional roller coaster but this is the scene that absolutely shattered my heart.
If the first 10 minutes of UP dont do SOMETHING to you… you have no soul.
IT IS NOT EVEN OKAY TO TALK ABOUT THIS MOVIE YOU GUYS
LET’S MAKE A MOVIE THAT STARTS WITH A BELOVED WIFE DYING, THEY SAID. LET US BATHE IN THE TEARS OF CHILDREN, THEY SAID. ADULTS, TOO? EVEN BETTER.
You are 100% not less of a fan if you haven’t read the manga.
You are 100% not less of a fan if you have read the manga and you prefer the 90s anime anyway.
And, admittedly, “Read the manga!” is a kind of rude and misleading thing to say.
But I’ve seen a lot of people saying that the people who respond to their complaints about Sailor Moon Crystal by saying “It’s like that in the manga” are telling them they’re less of fans or that they aren’t allowed to have their preferences or that you won’t be able to like the new series unless you read the manga first and like it’s possible that’s been happening and if it has those people are terrible but I haven’t seen anyone saying those things.
I’ve seen people saying “It’s like that in the manga”
which is just a statement of fact.
It’s one thing to be like, “I miss Tuxedo Mask’s roses :(” or “Haha, I can’t believe she doesn’t recognize him when he’s in that Tuxedo ALL THE TIME” and another thing to be like “THE PENS COME FROM THE VIDEO GAME? WTF? THIS IS TERRIBLE! IT’S RUINING MY CHILDHOOD” and “WHO THE FUCK DECIDED TO PUT HIM IN THAT TUXEDO WHO IS WRITING THIS SHIT?” And if someone points out to you after the latter that
it’s like that in the manga
that doesn’t mean you have to like it now. It just means the choice was made for a really good reason that pre-dates the anime you are using for reference. And that also there are lots of fans who would have been upset if it hadn’t been there. That it’s a valid decision taken from an existing canon.
Like, okay, how do I put this.
Like imagine you grew up with the 1978 animated Lord of the Rings film
and you never read the books.
And then the new movies came out and you were like
WHO THE FUCK ARE THESE PEOPLE? Why did they have to add all this crap? A ~girl~ who wants to be ~knight~ god damn how cliche. And what happened the the stock footage playing in the background of fight scenes instead of having landscapes??? This has ruined Lord of the Rings!
If someone said, “That’s Eowyn and Eomer and they’re in the books a lot. And those backgrounds were an invention of the animated film” they would be telling you the truth. And that doesn’t mean you have to LIKE anyone from Rohan, but it does mean that the people who made that choice had a really good reason to make that choice, and that reason had nothing to do with stomping on your childhood or attempting to personally piss you off and ruin the things you love. It had to do with loyally adapting the thing they love for the people who also love that thing.
I don’t know if I’m making my point well.
You remember that woman who was like, ready to boycott everything Sailor Moon because they weren’t calling Usagi “Serena” any more? And because they were doing an accurate dub instead of a severely edited one?
And she kept saying, “People are saying I’m not a real Sailor Moon fan because I prefer the dub!” but like no one was saying that.
What they were saying was that it was incredibly entitled and selfish of her to think that her personal preferences should have so much more weight over the preferences of other fans and the creators that she sincerely felt that any version of Sailor Moon that wasn’t the version of Sailor Moon she preferred shouldn’t be allowed to exist. Even if that version of Sailor Moon predated her favourite version and her favourite version wouldn’t exist without it.
Do you see what I’m saying here?
Thank you for putting it so wonderfully.
hello 911 yes
