19 Disney Characters That Could Have Looked Completely Different - From Buzzfeed
It looks like that last sketch of Flynn might have become Kristoff
Snow White almost looked like Betty Boop
Book Quotes: “Sometimes you remind me a lot of James.”
So the question is not, exactly, “Why change the books?” Because the answer is clear: Many, many details must be changed, just to make the transition from book series to televised series work. The question is, instead: “Why change this?” Why make a scene from the book that depicts consensual sex into one in the show that depicts rape?
Thank god for the A.V. Club, the only media outlet that has outright called bullshit on this so far.
And another really important quote:
Rape is a tricky thing to use as character development, for either the victim or the rapist; doing it twice raises a lot of red flags. It assumes that rape between characters doesn’t fundamentally change the rest of their story—and it assumes that the difference between consent and rape is, to use the parlance, a “blurred line.”
- book: meaningful consensual sex scene that has implications for both characters and gives insight into the nature of a 30+ year long relationship
- show: rape
I don´t know if someone has already mentioned this, but I was watching Frozen when I noticed something. When the wind opens the window, the White Queen (which symbolizes the Queen Elsa) falls from the chess board. Clever detail Disney.
animators are too damn clever for their own good
It was Tyrion. He killed him. He told me he would. The day will come when you think you are safe and happy. And your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth. That’s what he said to me.
do action movies know they can have more than one female character
Someone should make an action movie with all girls except for one guy and have no explanation or mention of it in the movie and then pay all of the actors to act surprised like they’d never noticed when they get the inevitable storm of questions.
if someone hurts you, stay the fuck away, no matter how hard it is, stay the fuck away
I’m also really tired of seeing the constant critique of women in tabloids.
Literally, it’s all lies. I’m sick of seeing Miranda Lambert’s gorgeous body ripped apart and congratulated on losing a bit of weight. I’m sick of the stories about Jessica Simpson and her fluctuating waistline. She’s stunning. Khloe Kardashian = stunning.
Seriously, tabloids, stop cramming people, women particularly, into boxes and then wondering why they don’t fucking fit.
It was a stupid fucking mistake to let this big baby of a cat in my bed. Fucker won’t leave me ALONE. His name is Tank because he weighs as much as a tank and is all solid muscle, but he’s the biggest wimp and loves to cuddle.
I’ve realized that I actually have minor panic attacks when I’m freaked out or around too many people or I haven’t gotten enough sleep. I’m so irritable now because I haven’t gotten eight hours of sleep at a normal time in probably three months.
Needless to say, that’s affecting my job. I’m just so damn cranky. I’m sick of being nagged at, sick of being ordered around to do 15 different things at once by 15 high-ranking managers who can crush me like a bug, sick of having people, people, people everywhere who have no common decency or respect for the employees who put out their fucking groceries and products.
In other words, I’m going to survive this season and find another job. A receptionist, maybe, where I can smile, be at peace, interact a little, and sit on my ass all day.
I’m just so, so tired, and so worn out. I have all next weekend off, which will be great.
does anybody else think tired and sleepy mean two totally different things
sleepy is cute and dozing off and happy but tired is 10 cups of coffee and murder
you can insult me but insult my Hogwarts house and it gets personal
And I think the first sign you notice when you begin to gain feelings towards a person, is just how easily you get jealous when they give others the attention which you crave.

Now that I’ve had a few minutes to digest that scene…
I’m actually really, really angry.
It’s not just because Jaime is my favorite character, but because Jaime is (per the books) one of the few men in this series who respects women.
Jaime, who wanted to protect Rhaella from Aerys.
Jaime, who actually grasps that rape is a terrible, terrible thing (“If I were a woman, I’d make them kill me,” he said to Brienne, a line that was included in the show).
Jaime, who actually left when Cersei asked him to leave (even though he “travelled a thousand leagues to get to [her] and lost the best part of [himself] along the way”).
Jaime, who is very intentionally not a rapist because he is supposed to be the archetypical knight in shining armor who believes in chivalry and old-fashioned romance and protecting highborn ladies.
