You Make A Good Batman

“I don’t want people to like her anymore, almost, that sounds really, really bad.I want people to realize that actually she’s not the same anymore. You can’t root for her forever, because she’s not there to be your favorite character. That’s not what she’s there for. She’s real. People go down bad paths and they make bad decisions, but it’s always justified in their head. I want the audience to differentiate that and not just be like, ‘Oh, it’s Arya, we love her.’ Because actually look at what Arya’s doing. She’s being eaten away from the inside out, and she’s not stopping it.” - about Arya

Summer Glau rehearsing for Serenity

I really love that she fights like a dancer.

The pirouette prep in the second gif tho

Considering she’s a trained ballerina, it’s not shocking that she uses that skill set in her stage fighting. 

Most stunt fighters in movies have some form of dance training. Summer was a trained ballerina (and not a stunt fighter) so it’s more noticeable but dance and fighting are very similar in the ways you need to work your body etc. Many stunt fighters though take dance classes and have in the past.

most stage fighters talk about stage fight almost as though it’s dance, it needs the same level of coordination and skill to make sure everyone is safe. it doesn’t normally look this dancey though - it’s clear that they choreographed it to look that way intentionally, since River’s also a naturally talented dancer, and the fighting isn’t exactly trained so much as programmed into her. she makes everything look beautiful!

"I have gotten so many letters from girls and boys who were so excited and proud to see a Black woman performing one of their favorite characters, “Elphaba”, in the musical Wicked. I was in Wicked for nearly 2 and a half years and I learned so much during that time.. .it wasn’t always easy and I was so busy in my own experience of working at the Gershwin theatre that I didn’t truly imagine so many kids would be inspired. 
"Oh, but the letters flew in, the artwork the fan sites, all the love that said "We’re so proud of you!" and "We can do it too!" I found out over the years that these things have meant alot to young people of color. "

Dreamworks is doing something even Pixar hasn’t tried: A black female heroine

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

cun-ter said:  Hi there, sorry to bug you and i know this might come off as completely random, but I found out last night that I got accepted to Dalhousie University and i was scrolling through the tags on tumblr and saw that you go there. Basically i just wanted to know if you enjoy it and if its worth it to basically go across the country for school. I'm really interested in the school and its one of my top choices but I've heard mixed things so i'm hesitant. Thanks in advance!

Hey, thanks for the message! I moved cross-country when I started at Dalhousie, all the way from Vancouver (!) and I understand that it can be scary to consider doing this. For me, however, this was absolutely the right choice. I think Dal is a great school, and I know that other people (aka the Maclean’s report) rate Dal as one of the top ten schools in the country. But, here’s the thing. You’re going to get a fine quality education at most if not all of the well known universities in Canada. So ask yourself where you will be happy living. Will you be happy living in Halifax? It’s a small city, but depending on where you’re from, it could seem exceptionally big or small. This makes a difference. To answer your question, though, I definitely enjoy Dal and I think it’s worth it to move cross-country for it, because I have had a pretty great time doing it. Let me know if there’s anything else you want to know about the school or the city?

So this little cigarette right here has sparked a whole new brand of TFiOS hate, much of which is coming from people who claimed to love the book. 
Many people are now pointing out how “pretentious” Augustus is, and I can’t help but think, You’re only just now realizing this. He was written to be a seemingly pretentious and arrogant person. The acknowledgement of this is actually highly important because, without it, the book loses the message that a hero’s journey is that of strength to weakness. 
Augustus Waters has big dreams for himself. He wants to be known and remembered; he wants to be a hero; he wants to be seen as perfect. But there’s already something standing in his way… He has a disability, and society tells him that a person cannot be both perfect and disabled. So what does he do? He creates a persona for himself. He tries to appear older and wiser than he is. But the pretentious side of him is NOT who he truly is. It’s all an act. (This is evident in the fact that he often uses words in the wrong context.)
And when his cancer returns, we begin to see his mask cracking. The true Augustus begins to bleed through… Hazel even takes notice of this from time to time. And by the time we get to the gas station scene, Augustus is no longer the picture of perfection he was when we met him. The play has been canceled. The actor must reveal himself. And he’s revealed to be a weak, defenseless boy, succumbing to the cancer that is made of him. 
THE PRETENTIOUSNESS IS INTENTIONAL. It stands to show Augustus’s journey from flawless to flawed, from strong to weak. It’s the key to understanding that Augustus was the hero he always wanted to be, even if he didn’t realized it.
