    Bella declares in BD that Edward belongs in a fairytale, not a horror story.

    Do you see any parallels between any Twilight characters or plots and fairytale characters, archetypes or tropes?  You can use Disney references if you want, but I’m also speaking more broadly about the pre-Disney tales (which were often much darker and more violent—the original Little Mermaid, for example, is much, much different than the Disneyfied version…).

    Thoughts?

    The Little Mermaid is what first came to mind.

    Bella is fascinated with vampires the way the little mermaid was with humans and she was willing to go through a painful transformation to be with the man she loved (and - to reference the Disney version* - so she could be ‘part of that world’.)

    The difference is that in the original story, the little mermaid doesn’t get a happy ending; the prince falls in love with a human woman and she turns to foam. (She does get to earn a soul by flying around looking over children, but I won’t get into that). Bella, on the other hand, suffers no real consequences. Her story is a little more like the Disney version than the real story. Thanks, Breaking Dawn. Thanks a lot.

    *People make a similar simplification with both Bella and Ariel actually. Ariel is derided for giving up her life for a man, even though she longed for the human world before she met him. Similarly, Bella is praised for making this grand sacrifice for love, when really, vampirism itself is very attractive to her.

    The freebie bags for the welcome festival thing are sent down to the gazebo by zipwire from the roof of the student union. Tell me that is not fucking cool. I dare you.

    Yes. My university (and husbando’s) > yours.

    The weird moment when 3 people you follow on this site go to the same university as you, and you’ve only met 2 of them

    Yeah, I’m really sorry! :/ I think I found you through browsing the university tag and forgot. Sorry if this is kind of awkward.

    This is none of my damn business, but I am also at said university.

    But you’ll never find me.

    First set of Star Wars bookmarks for BrisNova – starting with the original trio, of course! \o/

    I’m sorry that I’ve been really behind on replies and requests lately, because of a slight panic about prints (and general life things), but thank you all for being lovely!

    Yessss

    DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN

    • a character who is physically strong
    • a character who is mentally strong
    • a character who is emotionally strong

    ABSOLUTELY MEANS

    • a character who makes her own choices, even if they’re mistakes
    • a character whose point of view is explored at least briefly
    • a character who is the hero of her own story whether she knows it or not

    And that’s just a strong character, really.

    this is my favorite goofy pun ever, I have told it at least five times

    I don’t care, fuck you

    okay ready

    as you all know, saint patrick walked barefoot as an act of contrition, which made his feet rugged and blistered. he ate an ascetic’s diet, which made him weak and additionally gave him bad breath.

    all of this made him

    a super-calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis

    oh my god

    marry me.
