my strangest legacy - in high school, for one reason or another (I can’t remember) my friends and I wrote “34 days until March 2nd” on the whiteboard in the drama classroom. It was completely arbitrary but we kept it it up, “30 days until March 2nd” ”23 days until March 2nd” etc. It spread around enough that the entire school is buzzing about what is going to happen on March 2nd. We figure we should think of something and decide to bring in cake. There were about 13 of us in total committed to bringing a cake. On March 2nd, during 3rd period lunch we all entered the cafeteria in a line (the parade of the cakes) and laid them out—a grand cake buffet for everyone in that lunch period. We did it the next year. And after we graduated it kept going.
This past March 2nd was the 9th year they’ve done it. It’s become a school sponsored event. There are t-shirts for this thing every year. March 2nd is cake day. I am a god.
novel about a morally grey pirate captain who is cursed to die within 5 years for stealing some forbidden treasure, and only giving her heart to someone and expecting nothing back can break the curse
but rather than go on some journey to find some true love or whatever, she decides to use her last years to travel the seas with her crew and collect treasure and drink and be merry
and on the day of reckoning, she is falling more and more ill, and her crew gather all around her to say goodbye to their captain when suddenly the curse is broken. because she gave her whole heart to her ship and her crew, and expected nothing back.
OOOH thanks for the link! But yeah, Thornadooooo ;A:. Just Stoick&Thornado throughout the episode(s), I’m so sad…
YES more delirious scientist twins, and Snotlout was hilarious. I loved his dragon audience. Also having a reason for dragons not liking eels was really awesome, I’d always wondered (I mean i know it’s because Cressida Cowell personally doesn’t like eels but like in-universe reason). And seeing poor Toothless being oversensitive and vulnerable pulled at my heartstrings (like the two of them don’t already do that amirite).
Oh! Nitpick complaint: so like in Tale of Two Dragons, didn’t it seem really Snotlout/Astrid-y? Like obviously that’s not what it’s heading toward but I was like ‘if you were a child and less familiar with this series you might think there was something going on’ and I was like NOTP thanks. But the episode itself was really funny teambuildy and yeah I still liked it. >w<
Ooh! I just watched Tale of Two Dragons again :D. It’s so great! I especially loved the part where Hiccup’s telling Stoick that everything’s great and then Snotlout and Astrid bang on the door XD. Yeah, it was pretty heavy on the SnotStrid, especially because there wasn’t any HiccStrid to counter it. I kind of want to see an episode or fic or something where Snotlout realizes he’s just not gonna get the girl, and that Astrid loves Hiccup of all people. I mean, it has to happen eventually, and I just want to see how he reacts to that, because Snotlout’s story is basically that he was awesome and brilliant until Hiccup beat the Red Death, and now Hiccup’s outshining him on pretty much every level. IDK. I feel really sorry for Snotlout, and I love him to pieces.
Also I’m thoroughly looking forward to the Snotlout!Astrid!Hiccup dynamic in the finale episodes, and hopefully we’ll see more HiccStrid, because they had quite a few moments in the first series but barely anything this season. Aahh, I’m excited but also really not! I don’t want it to be over!
Yeah I just love the comedic timing in this show! Like it being a kid’s show does not diminish the enjoyment AT ALL. I definitely see there being an episode in the third season(? Whenever that is? Please tell me it’s in between this one and the movie because I won’t be able to handle not having any Dragons stuff while I jitter with anticipation over HTTYD2 gdi) in which HiccStrid becomes an actual THING and Snotlout gets over it, because in the movie their relationship seems pretty established, and Snotlout is also shown hitting on Ruff? So here’s to hoping. And yeah, I love how the show really develops Snotlout! Although honestly I feel like Snotlout is such that no matter what happens, he just kind of picks himself up with his ginormous ego and makes up for his shortcomings with his swagger. I think he’s hilariously awful omg he’s so terrible. I’d love to see some other characters get more backstory too, like the twins’ or Astrid’s home life or something idk.
SPEAKING OF THE FINALE (sorry I took so long to reply, it got lost), I haven’t seen part 2 of the finale yet but I hear it’s good?! I’ll watch it Friday, so I’ll TOTALLY check in with you when I do! Have you seen it yet?!
in the south we don’t say “you’re a dumb fuck” we say “bless your heart” and i think that’s beautiful.
the more mind-obliteratingly stupid we find you, the more descriptive we get. “bless your precious, sweet, mama-loving heart” means we’re not 100% certain how you possess enough intelligence to draw breath.
Gurren Lagann means a whole lot to me because the basic premise of Kamina’s catchphrase is:
"Wow, you don’t believe in yourself? I’m not going to tell you that you’re wrong for feeling that way, but I believe in you. If you believe in me, too, we can support each other where we need it the most. And maybe someday you’ll see in yourself what I see in you."
And thinking about that makes me tear up, not gonna lie.
