I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.
I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).
They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work. That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming. I love this.
Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity.
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood.
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.

What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make the least, they pay the most.
For all of you people who are judging Clara for saying “I don’t think I know who the Doctor is anymore,” and for not being accepting of his new regeneration, give her some slack. She went from knowing this young man, goofy, silly, and extremely childish, to meeting this old man who is darker,…
so a part in the Doctor Who season premier of season 8 that isn’t getting talk about at all really is the scene when Clara faints and you see her first day of school as a teacher and the kids are just rotten to her.
this scene needs to be talked about.
because the Doctor keeps calling Clara a…

I don’t know why, but before every new Moffat episode, I prepare myself for the possibility of it being bad. I keep thinking that when you are working under such pressure and with so many people criticising you - especially right after a huge anniversary special - anybody…
