My un-ironic Alice cosplay. Taken on a beautiful day in Central Park.
aaronjolras + heartbreaking facesAnd in the bottom left one you can SEE the realization of the surrounding destruction and you can see it begin to sink in just a little bit, in this small pause, that these men here with him are the only friends he has left alive, the only ones he hasn’t already led to death, and here they are all in pain and so scared and mourning in their last moments AND HE KNOWS HE IS SECONDS AWAY FROM LOSING THEM TOO.
waterbending at its finest
Dear white people,
Please stop cosplaying as PoC characters.
Anyone can cosplay as anyone/anything they want. Also, that’s the actual voice actress for Korra. She literally IS the avatar.
She’s gonna need water bending for that burn she just got
No but guys, GUYS, we need to talk about how important this scene is. Because the commonly accepted lore about unicorns is that they are so good and pure that they’ll only appear to young virginal girls. Because Molly Grue is a middle-aged woman who has been living with bandits for most of her life and is as far from innocent and virginal as you’re likely to get. Because she’s so angry that this creature, embodying everything that society tells her she’s lost, everything she’s thrown away through her own choices, is here now when all that The Unicorn represents is long since behind her. Because she knows, in a way that only someone who’s been steeped in an oppressive system her entire life can ever know, that she’s missed her chance and doesn’t deserve to be seeing a unicorn now.
And you know what? The Unicorn doesn’t give two fucks about her virginity, about her supposed loss of innocence and purity. She’s not repelled by Molly being older, being experienced, being a full human person. None of that has ever mattered to unicorns, only to the people telling stories about them. Not only does she step in to physically comfort her here, but before long this bandit’s wife becomes her friend, closer to her in most ways than Schmendrick.
This story is fucking revolutionary, you guys, and I just have a lot of feelings about it.
I heard Peter S. Beagle speak about this scene at a convention once. He said he just kept writing and writing into the scene and suddenly here was this powerful, moving dialogue which came out very strong and natural, flowing directly from inspiration.
He said it was one of those moments when “the writer just gets really lucky.”
This scene always makes me cry. It’s so easy to feel like “damaged goods” in a huge number of ways, and knowing you can be loved anyway is so so powerful.
WHOA! They cut this?! Melody nodded at her mother’s words and promised, “Always”. Notice Amy’s nods as much as she can at Melody’s promise while still watching the Angel.
