FACT: mako’s eyebrows are actually boomerangs glued to his face
Time well spent.
The next child will be Damian….
This has the word perfect written in it
WAISTOP IT I’M TEARING UP
Because I’m getting all sorts of feelings.
why are you doing this
my poor heart can’t handle it
hello unreleased sequence that will make me bawl my eyes out, nice to meet you
There’s about this that is just so lovely in the softness of the movement, the gliding of the hands through the air, the inherent grace in it that is different from other types of bending, even water.
And it’s just amazing to me how delicate and intricate the training devices made by the Air Nomads are, as if to teach restraint, which makes perfect sense when you think about airbending and the Air Nomad’s beliefs.
And looking at Aang’s expression you can see the gentleness comes easy to him, it is a part of who he is, something that has been drilled into his very being, and he is so composed and relaxed.
And then you see how hard Korra is concentrating, trying to keep her strength in check, because the point is not to destroy, not to create giant gusts of wind but to conciously direct the air in a fluid and controlled manner.
And idk why but this just gives me so many feelings because Aang is one of my few forever guys and I love him for how he sticks to beliefs which are such an intrinsic part of his being you can see it how he moves, how he bends. And I already love Korra so much, this loud and brash and reckless young woman who is unafraid to jump right into things, who told people that they “gotta deal with” the fact that she’s the Avatar when she was a kid, but still has moments of doubt and uncertainty because no matter how confident she is being the Avatar is a huge responsibility for anyone.
But she doesn’t give up and to see her trying so hard at what comes naturally to Aang, just like Aang struggled with what comes naturally to her (standing your ground, not being afraid of facing others) just gives me so many fucking feelings. JUST LLOK AT THESE TWO PRECIOUS AVATARS.
So I saw this last night
and before I could even process what I was doing
I made this
Part of me thinks it’s too soon to be writing about this because I don’t think I’ve completely processed how I feel, but I also think maybe this has happened to other women and I should talk about it in as raw a way as possible. I’m still really embarrassed and ashamed and garbled up inside, but maybe this can start a helpful discussion in terms of women and comedy.
Last night, I was on a stand up show in the East Village. The show started out with a small crowd and the host did an amazing job interacting with them and riling them up. By the time I got on stage, there were about 20 or so more people in the audience and the place had really filled up. The show was still kind of loose because of the back and forth between the host and the audience, so when I got on stage, I riffed a bit about the stuff that had happened before and then talked to one guy on the side of the audience who the host had dubbed “Banana Republic.” All joke-y. All in good fun.
Then, I start my actual set and do my first two jokes, which go pretty okay. I start another joke that is vaguely sexual - not crude, not crass - mainly silly and that goes well too. The next joke I do is about my boyfriend.
At a comedy show, when you’re on stage, usually you can’t see the audience because of the bright lights. So I’m looking into pitch darkness. As I start the joke, someone yells, “Does your boyfriend know?” referring to the sexuality joke I’d just told. I stop, laugh and say that he does because I think it’s just more of the loose environment that’s been going on at this show. I attribute it to an audience member just having fun.
I start to tell the joke about my boyfriend again, and at the midway point, the same voice yells something else derogatory about my boyfriend, homophobic and misogynistic towards me. I stop, confused. I can’t see who is talking to me so I make a HUGE mistake and say, “Sir, if you’re gonna talk to me, you need to come to the front because I can’t see you.” I think calling him out like this will shut him up.
