Let’s give a moment to those mothers that can not have a child…
In both instances there are old kind midgets that the princess goes off to live with, the princess’s whole deal is her beauty and sweetness, and she eventually gets put in a coma by her stepmother and a prince’s kiss wakes her. and then there’s the whole singing-in-the-forest-with-birds thing. The only difference might be that Aurora and Philip are more intelligent/skeptical people than the naive Snow White and “oh look at this lady I found passed out in a field who I don’t know I’ll go kiss her because she’s so pretty” Charming. Keeping in mind I haven’t seen either movie in like a decade.
Because they’re not.
Snow White is about a girl who loses her mother at a young age and gains a step-mother that only married her father for power. The step-mother then kills the father, blames snow white and then orders her to be killed. She flees and comes across a cottage of miners (who aren’t always depicted as dwarves), where she lives with them and in exchange for her safety, she offers to cook and clean for them. Before eventually being found by the step-mother and then saved from death by her prince.
Sleeping Beauty is about a girl that is the long waited for daughter of a king and queen who’s presentation to the kingdom is attended by a number of fairies (between 3 and 12). All but one manages to bestow a gift upon her before maleficent (an evil fairy and no relation to SB) turns up and curses her to death by spindle prick at 16. The last fairy bestows the gift of sleep to be broken by true loves kiss.
In the original, she stays with her family and all spinning wheels are banned from the kingdom, but maleficent manages to get one in on her birthday.
In the Disney on, she lives with the fairies who disguise themselves as normal sized peasant women and then she is found out and pricks her finger anyway.
The ONLY similarity between the two stories is the true loves kiss awakening the girls
“Proof” updated version.

I am both scared and excited
LET’S NOT FORGET THE FUCKING DALEK EYESTALK THAT WASHED UP IN FLORIDA

Not to mention the fact Mars is full of water.
Ladies and gentlemen, Gallifrey
Remember those things the Master had? So:
Crack in time?
So now I’m just gonna sit down and wait.
i just nearly fell down the stairs running to tell my dad that the doctor is real and that the internet has proof…
let’s not forget about this painting that has been made in 1959.It looks like Amy and Rory who actually lived somewhere around that time
This is my favorite post ever
Everytime I see this post again, it has been updated with lots more information that seriously make me if all is real.
It is real.
A thousand times reblog!
When I first moved into my house 4 years ago, I decided (during the inspection, before we were even approved) that the bedroom beside the front door would be the nursery.
It’s in the middle of the house, so we could hear the baby from any room, but it’s far enough away from those rooms to not wake the baby. It’s right beside the front door with a large window that leads onto the veranda, so that if there is a fire or some other emergency, we can grab the baby and get out (because with 3 cats and a child, we need one less labyrinthine route out of danger.)
It’s the 0,0,0,0 spot of the house.
But because of all the issues we’ve had and what not, it first became my office, then the junk room and the other bedroom, with it’s hill-like floor and every present dangers became the nursery. Which was fine, because it was only being used by our niece for sleepovers and she is in a crib.
Except her parents have moved her to a big bed, and I’m worried that she won’t sleep in her crib any more, which means we have to convert the crib into a toddler bed. I don’t want her in the crap room if she’s able to freely get out of bed.
So now begins the laborious task moving all the junk into the other room and finally setting up the nursery. But I still don’t know if I want to do it. That room was meant to be for my babies. I’m being silly. She needs a proper, safe room when she’s here and she’s the only baby regularly in our life and home.
If I make the change, I’ll post before and after picks.
For the last week I’ve been super sick with Gastro (had to have an injection to stop vomiting because I couldn’t hold down water. I also think I bruised my ribs/sternum vomiting… that shit was powerful). Ended up dehydrated and now that I’m finally recovering, I find out my period is due. So I’m exhausted and achey and hungry like a monster.
First real food I’ve eaten in a week and I’ve already eaten crap (including a box of 100s & 1000s oreos). So much for keeping the weight off! I’ve got less than 200 days till the colour run and I am going to be under 100kg for it.
Also, my blue leopard print tights are fabulous! (I’ll post a pic later)
Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers
As described by Selnick’s article:
This is something I have always encouraged people to consider when writing. If you can afford it, and you have one in your area - TAKE A BODY LANGUAGE CLASS. It will open your eyes to a whole new world of subtleties you never knew existed. SO worth it as a “Real Life” skill and for all those times when you’re writing and you need your character to react nonverbally.
There is also, in addition to these others, the writer resource book: The Emotion Thesaurus by Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi
This could also be a great reference for visual artists too.
another way to self-assure yourself, that i more commonly see (and do) is: folding your hands together and one thumb strokes the back of your hand repeatedly…this is used as a way to soothe any anxiety and whatnot which can be caused by distress.
and twiddling thumbs…sometimes a sign of nervousness.
Doctor Who Cares? - A spinoff in which all is right with the ladies’ storylines and they take custody of the TARDIS every weekend to explore the universe together, defeating misogyny and laughing along the way
These are… actually pretty inspiring.
“you are never taller than when you stand up for yourself”
thats just awesome
“You’re the result of 4 billion years of evolutionary success; F***ING ACT LIKE IT.”
My fave right there.
((I can’t help loving courage wolf or whatever this meme is called.))
Remember that last one. “So you’ve hit rock bottom. A Solid foundation.”
It will be some of the most important advice to anyone who ever has a morbid thought.
“When life gets harder, you must have just levelled up” I like that. I think I need to print that off an stick it on my wall.
