It’s a bit late in sharing here, but here it is, my first ever animated short film! I hope you all enjoy it, and thank you for sticking around through my inactivity! <3
WHY HELLO THERE YOU LITTLE CUTIE
Ehehe so I emerge from drowning in a crash course on Flash to sketch the new Pokémon on the block! (I blame you for showing me the trailer, Chris XD) I know there’s fur flying over it being a cash grab and a ripoff and all this, but I find myself surprisingly… not bothered.
Ask anyone, I’ve loved Mew and Mewtwo since forever. Shouldn’t a new “form” bother me? It definitely would have if this one was introduced in, say, Gold/Silver. Mewtwo’s had plenty of time to establish himself as a solid character. I’d like to see where this one takes us!
And come on, he’s ADORABLE~~~ <3
So, let’s talk about the “Nesquick Sand” scene in Wreck It Ralph for a minute here…
This is really one of the (many) sequences that really sold me on the character of Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun, specifically her reaction towards being asked to inflict physical pain on another person. While Calhoun is set up to be an aggressive, action-oriented individual with a rather dark sense of humor (see her “This game just got interesting” line when Vanellope threatened to execute Taffyta), Calhoun did not find hitting Felix to be an immediately viable solution. At first, she merely attempted batting at him lightly, as depicted in the image above, and resisted going further since she felt uncomfortable using such a level of force against Felix.
She only agreed to the plan when it became clear it was their only option to escape, and when Felix ensured her that he could “heal” himself immediately with his hammer. Furthermore, while the Laffy Taffy found the whole affair to be comedy gold, Calhoun did not find the practice funny in the slightest, she just wanted to save their lives. This is what I find to be the key element. Just because Calhoun is a physically strong women who can use violence, she is not characterized as someone who feels violence is an acceptable answer for all solutions. Her strength is not for hurting. Yes, she is a soldier programmed with “the most tragic backstory ever” to motivate a bleak worldview. She has a sharp tongue, a loud voice, muscles, and guns and she will use them to protect herself and the people around her. But, she also knows when not to use that power.
decided to gif this scene because I don’t think anyone else has. I just want to point out how adorable and protective Felix is. Ralph told Vanellope to stay with the fixer, and Felix is just all “oh hell naw im lookin after u now girl ralph would kill me if anything happened to you yo cmere”
not to mention miss calhoun firing at the cybugs to save everyone’s ass
just gah so many feels i love them all so much

always always always reblog this. about the most perfect explanation of sexism i’ve heard so far.
i saw a post about felix being brave and i’ve been going over it in my head all day and i just can’t accept that he’s brave and so here’s WHY
I am going to respectfully disagree. But I would like to voice why:
he hadn’t faced anything boldly.
I have to agree with icancraft-it - Felix may not be the most well-equipped for adventuring around, but when he needs to, he leaves the safety of Niceland and works to get stuff done!
I always thought that his reflexes were pretty good (“slick tiddlywinking” and all X3), and suggests that he not only knows how to use his jumping ability to stay alive, he tends to depend on it. Hence the panic attack in the Nesquicksand.
And maybe he didn’t face down Cybugs directly, but did anyone notice what he was doing when Ralph was fighting them off at the finish line? He was fixing the finish line! Under constant threat of a few cybugs getting past Ralph, he stayed to help, and stayed with Ralph and Vanellope until they could both get away!For someone who doesn’t have the tools or skills to fight off danger directly, that’s pretty darn brave!
And just to touch on, because it’s worth mentioning - Ralph told Vanellope to stay with Felix. He knew that Felix would do whatever it took to keep her out of danger. If that’s not a testament to his character, I dunno what else is!
I know other people have different opinions, and that’s just fine! Really, it opens up a lot of interesting discussions. So thank you guys for sharing! :3
