|nooby-banana: how has no one said Tinker Bell yet this is a crime|
TRULY AN EGREGIOUS CRIME
|nokki1: I'm gonna say Belle.|
awww you know Belle’s my girl! definitely on my must-cosplay list once i finally feel like tackling a ball gown!! plus, she made reading cool back in the day. i was so happy to see a Disney princess that i actually had a hobby in common with!
|upperstories: How 'bout a a girl who's got a brain and always speaks her mind? I think you're like Mulan!|
omg, uppers, i love youu! Mulan will always be one the best Disney characters of all time to me!! i can’t get enough of her!
|dark-elves-on-shelves: Mariah Hill from Avengers :D cause she's badass, your badass.......|
now THAT is an unexpected response, but also an awesome one!! thank you, i shall try to live up to the expectations of SHIELD! (also, i love that some Marvel characters get to be counted as Disney characters now XD)
|Anonymous: Sending you a hug because you're awesome and seem to be getting a lot of crap lately. So! *hugs*|
what who is this sending me adorable hugs! i don’t deserve them because i’ve been so ornery today, but thank you for your kindness, gentle soul!
the word “fractal” wasn’t actually coined until the 1970’s, and yet it’s used in the song “Let It Go” in Frozen. logically meaning that the movie would have to take place some time after 1975…
so i think it’s safe to say that Arendale is actually a kingdom on the earth of the far-off future where radiation causes rocks to become sentient and little girls to be born with strange, ice-powers.
Ariel’s hair is from the eighties, and Snow White’s is from the forties, and most of the english language in the princess movies wouldn’t have existed at the time the films took place, and anyways, in Beauty and the Beast they keep switching between french and english, and also talking furniture/ animals, and if you’re this picky about one word in one movie, I expect you to tear apart the magic of every disney movie ever in the same amount of disturbing detail or just sit back and enjoy the sentiment.
Animated films require suspension of disbelief, don’t expect perfect historical accuracy.
see, meghan! i told you someone would think i was serious and go into a speech about suspension of disbelief and animated movies.
no but really has anyone in history finished a book/play/movie and said “you know i’m really glad that love triangle was in there, that was a really necessary plot point and the story was made better for it”
When I finished the The Sorrows of Young Werther and Romeo and Juliet.
Please stop treating love triangles as if they are poisonous. They aren’t and can add good texture to a story if executed properly, or even carry a whole story. Just because it is done wrong a lot doesn’t inherently make it bad. I know this is mostly just kneejerk because of Korra bringing it back as a subplot but all things considered the second season handled it much better than the first in that it remained a subplot and that there were real consequences for Mako’s actions this time.
Please stop this.Edit:Just to add a few more to shut you idiots up:
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Beauty and the Beast
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
The Great Gatsby
Kokoro by Natsume Sōseki
Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Seriously, what the hell OP.
Okay maybe I deserved this response because I put it in my tags that not everyone reads, but I DID ask to be proven wrong because I couldn’t think of any examples. So this “idiot” thanks you for providing them.
Then put it in the main post, otherwise it looks like you’re seriously saying a trope is bad in all cases and then people start to agree with you because of kneejerk. If you aren’t making a serious claim, then don’t type as if you are and backpedal later.
Especially if it’s a trope that carries some of the best literature ever written.
Wow ok I didn’t mean to personally offend your taste in literature.
If you really, truly wanted examples, and you genuinely wanted to be proven wrong, then you shouldn’t get defensive or passive-aggressive when presented with supporting evidence.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t consider Alladin or The Hunchback of Notre Dame or Harry Potter or Madoka literature. They are considered to be very good written works and have lasting importance, whether they were published in 1831 or 1991 or 2011.
I understand you feel upset about “more examples for you idiots” and “what the hell op,” but you have to really consider that the first thing they saw wasn’t You asking for genuine input, it was You watering down a trope in a pretty disrespectful way in order to dismiss its usefulness in literature and simultaneously express your dissatisfaction with its recent incarnations.
Looking at it from an outside perspective:
A: “I hate this trope. It’s useless.”
B: “Here’s why it’s not useless, and I’m really annoyed that everyone blindly hates it.”
A: “Well, I DID ask in my tags that someone explain it to me, so thanks I guess. Thanks for calling me (personally) an idiot and calling me out.”
B: “Tags always get erased in a reblog and you know it. Now it looks like you’re going back on what you said instead of conceding to or rebuking my point.”
A: “Wow why are you so offended. I didn’t mean to offend your taste in literature, which, btw, I don’t consider literature, but whatever.”
You can see how it looks…
you are assuming that she is being passive aggressive, but i can promise you she is the least passive aggressive person i know and that everything she stated up there she stated sincerely and without the snarky, sarcastic tone of voice that i would have said it in or that i, personally, think that response deserves. if you want passive aggression you should be looking at me, but you’d rather help make this simple post even more inflammatory by accusing the OP of all sorts of random crap so THERE YA GO CONGRATS. YOU DIDN’T EVEN SPELL ALADDIN RIGHT AND USED “GOOD” WHEN YOU MEANT “WELL.” see? that’s passive aggression. not making a little post about love triangles and being offended for a rude response but still taking the actual content of it into consideration.
but really you guys this was not a serious post. how did this happen.
aha oops did i get too mama bear with that response to meghan’s love triangle question? i just don’t like people being rude to my bffs…
|upperstories: --White-less semi outline around them it would add an endearing storybook-like quality to him. Like some of Meg's original characters!|
yes! i was actually thinking of how Megan’s pulled that off so well!
