Better this present than a past like that; Back therefore to my darkening path again!

Teacher, nerd, and aficionado of humanity. Expect to see fangirling, art/photography, and love. Oh, and how much I miss travelling, because America's getting old again.


The ask box is open. Suicide survivor, mostly-ex-cutter, rape survivor, PTSD, Bipolar II, suffice to say I've got some experience and I'm here for you.

This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness' 

when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.

And I just want to remind everyone that ultimately, despite this betrayal, Maleficent finds strength and love and happiness again. He took a dear part of her but she survived and thrived despite him.

this was like the sickest burn I’ve ever seen

Tumblr! I need your help!

In last night’s dream, I followed Obama and an elite group of politicians and soldiers through a command center and into an elementary school gym. Shortly into the presentation (we were just on standby during a pep rally[?]), the entertainment appeared: Lo and behold, it was one of our politicians! (who also happened to be Philip Seymour Hoffman)

In a shocking turn of events, Hoffman began throwing these odd balls of goo around the gym, and they began growing…into giant dildos. Grossly realistic ones, too, ranging from two to five feet in a variety of sizes and colors. They moved a bit like Weeble-Wobbles but definitely were headed, slowly but surely, to attack. 

Hoffman is cackling amid a flying dong when Obama tears out, ripping off his military uniform a la Superman, only he’s wearing nothing underneath. Bare-ass naked, he begins ripping those dildos apart, but the split goo just keeps growing afresh. The kids are all cheering for their president. A rash on his bum is almost Obama’s undoing, for as he goes to scratch, the dong army attacks. He skillfully dodges but takes a heavy blow. This is enough to drive him into Hulk-mode, diving for Hoffman and disabling the commandildos. Ultimately, the children are evacuated, but neither Hoffman or Obama were ever found.
