“It wasn’t until I met Ellen that I was floored by my own feelings. It was like an arrow through my heart. I was hers from the moment she first held me. It seems crazy after denying my feelings for women for so many years that in an instant, I fell in love, and loving her, saved me. ” - Portia de Rossi
I see we’re dealing with round 34098543953 of “female character is being held to ridiculously high standards in the name of feminism” wrt Mako
I am 0% surprised
THIS! You can literally have a billion shit male characters but “Hey, it’s okay, because he did this and that was AWESOME!” but female characters, nope, here’s the ten million reasons why they shouldn’t be allowed in films.
Personally I adored Mako, and actually whooped when we got to the end and she hadn’t been made into the love interest!
WHAT ARE YOU PROUD TO LOVE? CAKE OR PIE?
My Drunk Kitchen: Rainbow Cake
I think half my baking endeavours would go better if I introduced more wine to them…
My boys would do this and as I’m trust training them at the mo, that simply won’t do, so I’ve cheated. Cage goes on floor, I tempt them to the ground floor and then I remove and hide the top…
Don’t get me started, I’ve yelled at my Tumblr far too many times when I try to sort it.
The touch training, have you tried yogurt? The boys (Tyrion and Renly, in case you were wondering) don’t let me lift them yet but with the spoon of yogurt in one hand and me stroking them with the other they seem to be learning that ‘touch means yogurt…I’ll allow this.’
my rats are fucking dumbasses
I put their cage on the floor with the door wide open and the two morons are staying in it
I guess I should be happy that I’ll never have to deal with an escape
I KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN.
Every now and then I’d forget to close…
My boys would do this and as I’m trust training them at the mo, that simply won’t do, so I’ve cheated. Cage goes on floor, I tempt them to the ground floor and then I remove and hide the top of the cage. Now they explore, wrestle and generally get the exercise I need them too. They brux so I know they’re content with this tough love and the sheer Tigger style bouncing that occurs cracks me up every time.
The fact I’m now ‘base’ is just a bonus, although I could do with less wrestling sessions in my dressing gown.
Congratulations, you are most likeTHORIN OAKENSHIELD, leader of the Company of Dwarves and heir to the lost throne of Erebor.
You are a charismatic and strategic leader, motivated to instigate change. Your quick wit and ability to logically reason and understand systems and strategy help you turn these changes into reality. You set long-term plans to help you accomplish tasks, and can well articulate your intentions to others, gaining you loyal supporters.
Thorin desires to reclaim Erebor and restore his people to their former splendour. You are very driven in achieving your goals, which are typically quite ambitious. While you are a capable leader, you like to be in charge only when it becomes obvious that you are the best person for the job. You are very blunt and decisive in your plans, and can come across as critical or brusque to others who question the pursuit of your goals.
With the weight of his people’s expectations on his shoulders, Thorin often worries about the consequences of failing his quest – the loss of his line, his kingdom, and his people’s hope. You tend to be a bit of a perfectionist, setting especially high standards for yourself and your companions. Once you set a goal, you apply yourself 100% to its achievement. With your mind set so firmly on achieving your ends, you can often forget to consider the point of views of others, and the social cost of your quest.
I’ll take that! Now I just need to gather 13 other people shorter than 5’5 and head towards a mountain! Twinsies!
