Mulan loved my Mulan pen!
She said, “I love things that have my face on it.”
Wow, Mulan, conceited much ;). Seems like you may have been spending some time with Gaston!
SHOOTS LIKE MULAN
WEARS MEN’S SUITS LIKE MULAN!
THINKS FAST AND KICKS ASS ON A ROOF LIKE MULAN
MULAN: “I USE AVALANCHES IN ALL OF MY BATTLE SCHEMIIIING!”
NOT QUITE A GUY, THAT MULAN!
WHEN I WAS A GIRL I DRANK 3 CUPS OF TEA
EVERY MORNING TO HELP ME GROW STRONG
NOW I’VE GROWN UP I DRINK FIVE CUPS OF TEA
AND I DEFEATED THE KING OF THE HUUUUUUUNS
This is the best thing ever.
A Whole New World…
(( So this week I decided to try something a little different. :) I saw some beautiful “race-bent” Disney a while ago and wanted to try it out, so here’s some of our ladies. :D (There wasn’t really any rhyme or reason to my choices, I just started fiddling with the images and these happened.) :P I’m going to go back to doing genderbent stuff, but I think I’ll do some of these every once in a while if you guys would like to see more. :) ))
Thanks so much! So are you!
"he or she" …they?

every single fanfiction uploaded in the last two years oh my god (via brood-of-froods)
Fuck it is true, I’ve done it myself.

This is funny, it really is, because there’s such a grain of truth to it, and I think we all need to laugh at ourselves. But come on. Writers (and artists) are magicians of the highest order. From nothing, they make something, they make whole worlds appear. Writers deserve our respect and adoration, and FAN FIC writers - well honestly. They do it for free, from the goodness in their hearts, from the passion in their soul. All the love to the sorcerers of word and image.
And how DO you describe how your beloved smells? Unless you are a professional perfume maker, what language do you have at your command to describe them? I think once you get past clean or sweaty, musky, and delicious — what’s left? They smell like the toothpaste or detergent they use that smells unique on them. They smell like home. They smell like your dreams come true. Smell is such a primal, basic way we connect to the world, and yet unlike the Eskimo’s vocabulary to describe the many qualities of snow, we don’t have THAT many words to describe scent.
As a writer, I find that frustrating. Sometimes you can be wildly creative in describing something in your fic, and sometimes you gotta grab a cliche that fucking works and fucking move on, or the damn story is not going to get written.
I skipped this the first two times I saw it on my dash, because ugh, more posts mocking fanfic writing? No thanks. But this commentary is spot-on. Yes, this. So much this.
I’ve wanted to do fan art for “Take From Me My Lace” for months, but I only just got around to it, ugh. Most of these started as sketches on the train.
Bilba Baggins (alias Belle Bijou) and Thorin
Bofur, Nori, and Ori
Fili and Kili with Minty the dog.
(Ugh this AU is so cute!)
