No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
#sometimes the family you start with isn’t a good one #but you can find your own #family is not absolute #blood is not absolute

This is elvish-elvis' fault for making the Han Yolo comment in a previous post. SORRY NOT SORRY
» If I can ever recommend one thing to you, it is this:
I have several done years of RPing, and this has taken me to countless different forums and, if you are at all familiar with RP forums, let me tell you, they were the lowest of the low some six or seven years ago.
In one of these forums, a legendary tale happened, a tale that, if I can ever recommend one thing to you, it is this:
The Ballad of Edgardo.
A story that happened to an anonymous RPer years ago.
Anyone will be able to appreciate it (and trust me, you will), but if you are kinsmen or kinswomen to me, if you ever had to experience the shittiest of RP forums and their terrible userbases, particularly that one guy that does whatever he wants and is an asshole that clearly godmods but gets away with it because the actual mods don’t give a damn, you will find the beauty behind the ballad that much brighter.
Just trust me on this one. It’s not a particularly long read, either.
I hope you enjoy The Ballad of Edgardo
there are tears in my eyes
Imagine the mabari of the Warden who makes the ultimate sacrifice. He sits on the road and looks up at Fort Drakon while lights crack from the very top. A hush falls over the mass of people—every soldier of every army—as the remaining Darkspawn retreat.
The light breaks into particles, floating into the clearing sky. Once it’s registered that the Archdemon is dead, there’s cheering, laughing, crying, hysterics. But the hound dog is still; only a tiny whimper leaves his jowls as his legs grow weary. He folds his legs and tucks his head as he lies down, but does not leave that spot on the road by the tower.
She’s coming back, I know she is. I’ll wait until she gets here. If I leave, she might miss me.

I love that this is a real comic and that I got to draw it. And I love that tumblr has uploaded THE ENTIRE ISSUE as photosets. But mostly I love drawing grumpy li’l Wolverines.
