My dæmon would be a male painted bunting. Painted buntings are related to finches, and native to the American Southwest and deserts!
It’s been said that they’re the gaudiest bird found naturally on the North American continent!
… sounds about right…

“I was tired, Jorah. I was weary of war. I wanted to rest, to laugh, to plant trees and see them grow. I am only a young girl.”
No. You are the blood of the dragon. The whispering was growing fainter, as if Ser Jorah were falling farther behind. Dragons plant no trees. Remember that. Remember who you are, what you were made to be. Remember your words.
“Fire and Blood,” Daenerys told the swaying grass.

“Remember, reality is an illusion, the universe is a hologram, buy gold, bye!”
The symbols matching the characters here aren’t 100% sure (since Bill only proved three, which are Mabel’s, Dipper’s and Soos’) so I just went with what most of the fans speculated about the symbols (I didn’t add the Llama because there would be two Mabel’s, and there’s also a theory that Dipper is the ice as well, but yeah, same reason with Mabel’s) there are two Stan’s because there’s also this theory going around that he has a twin. So there you go!
It just frustrates me how Tumblr people can be inspired to profound and heartfelt analysis of the media they love,
But they ignore BASIC FACTS of the media they are gushing over and so their analysis is wrong!!!
#remember how this movie took female stereotypes and crushed them into a million pieces
casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.
Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.
casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.
Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.
what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!
I LOVE EVERYTHING IN THIS POST
Let’s also note that in this movie, when Elle Woods gets to Harvard and everyone is either excluding her or judging her for her apparent lack of intelligence, she does the same damned thing she did to get there: she works her ass off to show them that no matter what the fuck they think, she earned her spot in class and she’ll keep earning it. “I’ll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be,” and then she fucking does. Every time she’s humiliated or made to feel less than, Elle puts her head down and barrels forward, and the one time it seems insurmountable, the time a man she respected, who she thought valued her brain beforetits and ass, tells her that her brain is not enough, she’s reminded (BY A BADASS LADY LAW PROFESSOR, LET’S NOT FORGET) that she’s Elle Fucking Woods and she’s not one to let one stupid prick ruin her life, which is like the manifesto of the entire movie: no matter what men think Elle Woods is, she is not just that one thing.
Can we take a second to recognize Karen McCullah Lutz who wrote Legally Blond, 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s The Man, and The House Bunny which are all basically movies about women who really want to do something and they ignore the terrible people that tell them to stop trying to do the thing and so they just go ahead and do the thing to great success?
Also she writes her movies while floating in the pool and dictating scenes to her writing partner.
And she’s writing a movie called The Expendabelles (which is the greatest movie title ever).
Elle Woods did not “come out of nowhere.” It doesn’t say that she has an Ivy League legacy, but Elle Woods’ parents are fucking rich. All of the young ladies of her sorority are super rich — also true friends with good hearts, but RICH.
Elle enters Harvard with the security that she doesn’t have to worry about tuition, that she can coast into class with a pink notepad and frilly pen. She doesn’t take responsibility for not having done the reading. She grows and develops like a good character should — and she does not start out as this amazing balanced hard working and glamorous career woman. She starts out as a smart, but shallow sorority girl with a big heart and wedding-bell-pealing dreams — and a ton of money.
I say this as someone who loves this movie, and the musical it inspired.
