Sophie, the girl, is given a spell and transformed into an old woman. It would be a lie to say that turning young again would mean living happily ever after. I didn’t want to say that. I didn’t want to make it seem like turning old was such a bad thing — the idea was that maybe she’ll have learned something by being old for a while, and, when she is actually old, make a better grandma. Anyway, as Sophie gets older, she gets more pep. And she says what’s on her mind. She is transformed from a shy, mousy little girl to a blunt, honest woman. It’s not a motif you see often, and, especially with an old woman taking up the whole screen, it’s a big theatrical risk. But it’s a delusion that being young means you’re happy.

“I’m an adult” I whisper as I try not panic while I’m filling in all those forms that I don’t understand.

A kind of fanfiction written entirely in text message format: (with the headcanon that Robin Sherbatsky and Maria Hill are the same person, Steve using Siri to text everyone, and major spoilers for Cap 2)

Just a mass text from Clint:

To: Lord of Winterfell My Ass, The Green Guy, Star Spangled Man With An Ass, Nat, iPod Girl - New Mexico, Robin Sparkles

This just in professional animators who have endured years of rigorous training are still figuring out how to design and animate girls. It’s very difficult, and nobody in the history of the company has yet to figure it out. Please be patient with them, or you may hurt their feelings

to be fair no one has ever been able to draw a woman in the history of mankind. nor have they been able to even capture a woman on film. im highly skeptical that women even exist. one blurry photograph in the woods does not prove anything.

Yes, I wrote my daughter a letter. And that bastard that made me call him Father took pieces of it, that only Allison would know were from me, and used it to manipulate her, to turn her into something she was never supposed to be. I never wanted her to become me. And it got her killed. I will find that man, and I will kill him. Even if I have to come back from the grave.

- Eaddy Mays (as Victoria Argent)’s very powerful answer to the question of whether or not Victoria actually wrote the letter to Allison (via wolftraps)

HUNGER GAMES COMICS

PART 2

What the books are actually like

People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.
