So I found this, which I did when I was about 10 or 11 years old. I had these original characters who were animal superheroes from another planet, and wanted to make a comic or even animated show about them. Wistful thinking, eh?
It’s also laminated, since I wanted to send them over to Marvel Comics at the time. They did respond… only to say no. Pity I didn’t keep that letter around.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

whoo boy am I sick of this, yuuuup

The Lego Movie was LITERALLY this trope, no matter how much it tried to be tongue-in-cheek about it.

I also didn’t get why there was excitement about Wonder Woman being featured, when she had even less screen time than Superman (let alone Batman).

Thousands of Tumblr users have been misled by a post suggesting that an unidentified elementary school girl was battered and sexually assaulted by her classmates only to have authorities excuse it as “rough housing”. This story is awful and provokes anger amongst its readers, as it should. However it’s a LIE

This article smelled “off” when I read it because it clearly stated that the mother withheld her daughter’s name to save her from humiliation. Which made the photo of the girl seem off. Why hide her name if you’ll show her face? That’s because this isn’t an article on CNN like the post suggests and that little girl isn’t a sexual assault victim. You’re looking at a photo of Makayla McEvoy. She was 7 when this photo was taken in 2012 after she survived a Kangaroo attack.

Little miss McEvoy is an Australian animal attack survivor. She is NOT an American rape victim from Georgia (thank God)

The artificial news story was fabricated by a Tumblr user called dropmycumberbritches (who now goes by vegetableighs since handing the account off to someone else to avoid heat) After posting the artificial story to raise awareness to Rape Culture, the Tumblr user then celebrated and sang their own praise. Luckily another Tumble user, untrue-posts, found the article, did some digging and reblogged the initial post with the real info.

However, the original post is still picking up speed and is sitting comfortably at 20k+ posts. Please, spread this news and let everyone know that there is not a Georgian rape victim going uncared for. Instead, there’s a poor Australian girl who was attacked by a Kangaroo in 2012 who recovered, only to have her face used for some else’s agenda.

please reblog, several people posted this story and it’s fucking horrible someone would use this as a prop.

Just a reminder that folks on this site can make up whateverthefuck and people will believe and spread it. Sometimes it’s a story about a made up kid, and sometimes it’s dangerous lies about real people. 

Check sources, y’all.

More pirates from Peter Pan - this includes Gentleman Starkey, who was an usher at a public school (to non-UK people, that actually means private schools like Eton, though I doubt he was at that one specifically).

Bottom image is the line up with Hook, Smee and others.

For fun, here is older Wendy as the pirates’ “mother” (which makes Hook their father?)

Deleted and reposted this, because I couldn’t replace the origjnal as easily as before.

Anonymous said: #peter pan is one of the most sinister characters in children's literature and you will never convince me otherwise

can you explain why?

queerpotters:

  • sneaks into people’s bedrooms in the middle of the night
  • literally steals children and spirits them away
  • supposedly all of these children are ”lost” and fell out of their prams and whatnot but he also happily absconded with wendy, michael and john who were not even a little bit lost 
  • chopped a man’s hand off and fed it to a crocodile nbd
  • (peter is supposed to be a child can we bear this in mind) 
  • at the end when he rescues the lost boys et al he sneaks onto the jolly roger and slaughters ten pirates before they even realise he’s there
  • boy is a stone cold killer yo
  • and slightly just keeps a running verbal tally through all of it like those children are so unfazed by Peter Pan, Killing Machine
  • and a couple of quotes from the text to top it all off: 
  • and when [the lost boys] seem to be growing up, which is against the rules, Peter thins them out;
  • peter thins them out
  • okay
  • and my personal favourite: 
  • He often went out alone, and when he came back you were never absolutely certain whether he had had an adventure or not. He might have forgotten it so completely that he said nothing about it; and then when you went out you found the body;
  • THEN WHEN YOU WENT OUT YOU FOUND THE BODY
  • ?????????????????????????

Not to mention his arrogance, and how he even terrorises the lost boys if they don’t play his games. 

Oh, and even Wendy seemed terrified when he took her daughter off to Neverland in the end of the book.
