Sweet Jesus, I write some sad stuff. - Patrick Ness (x)
Couldn’t help it. Began to re-watch Avatar. Again.
My I love that show.
Sokka once had a sexist attitude (The Water Tribe were traditional with gender roles because it was “the natural order of things”) but after being humbled by Suki and her fellow Kyoshi Warriors, he began to see women as equals and developed a newfound respect for them.
A++++ Character Development
# OH MAN I CAN GO ON AND ON WITH THIS ONE # but this is my favorite character arc # the first five minutes of this show already mentioned the word ‘sexist’ # I knew it was going to be special # and its a girl calling out her brother that he’s an idiot # his sexism stems from ignorance # and the viewers get to understand WHY he was sexist # he grew up in a environment where the men were warriors # but he never (and the series never showed) female water tribe warriors # his father entrusted him to look after the tribe and his sister # he doesn’t think men are better than women #but rather he believed there are certain things women at good at (feminine activities like sewing and men are good at (masculine activities # imagine katara had to go put up with this bullshit # she calls him out but does he listen? no # because he’s stubborn and people tend to not listen to their family members # so he needed someone very special to smack that sexism out his system # Suki made him a better person # after being outmatched by this superior warrior # he HUMBLES himself and took his humiliation an opportunity to learn from someone who is clearly more skilled # and then he APOLOGIZES his behavior # again Suki teaches him another lesson when he said ‘I treated you like a girl when I should have treated you like a warrior’
Yeah I mean I couldn’t agree more when it comes to this…that the WORD “SEXIST” APPEARS IN THIS SHOW AT ALL let alone in THE FIRST MINUTE of in-narrative dialogue is exceptional.
I firmly believe that Katara’s instant, prodigious mastery of Waterbending reaffirms this development, as does Sokka’s unerring friendship with the incomparable Toph Beifong.
this doesnt even need a caption… every girl knows what this is…
i will never not reblog. its too accurate
wait do girls really go in those weird half standing positions and stand on their heads type deal???
Fan: When we first watch Supernatural we thought “he is really handsome” but then we found out that there were so much more than that, that you had so much more to offer. We think that a good actor can take you in a different place and is able not only to make you forget that you are watching an actor but also who makes you care about the character’s journey. And you really make people who watch you care about you and your character… and not just because you have a pretty face. You handle both tragedy and comedy with equal ability and your eyes speaks a thousand words even when you are saying nothing at all. So when Supernatural will end, don’t think about it as a conclusion, but as a stepping stone which will bring you to a bright future because you are Oscar material. [x]
so glad this came around again
Those tears in his eyes and him desperately trying to make a joke out of the situation so we wouldn’t notice them… Ugh never gonna be able to get over it
This always gets me. Because look how genuinely touched he is.
"He kept messing up his hair"
"I’d forgotten he used to do that"
I find this one of the saddest lines in the Harry Potter series because Sirius says it. Not a day goes by that Sirius doesn’t think about James and miss James but the little things are starting to go. James has been dead for so long, Sirius is forgetting the little things he used to do, like messing up his hair. This was most likely something he teased James for yet now his best friend has been gone for so long he’s forgotten what he was like and I just think this is so sad
Opps, there goes my heart. It broke and shattered into 1000000000 pieces
