noa wanted me to post this Ha Ha
Um. Merida got a redesign. And tHIS IS NOT OKAY??
Sure Disney’s done redesigns for all their princesses lately and they messed those up pretty badly too. There’s no point raising a fuss about Cinderella and Aurora’s bangs because sigh I guess it’s just hair (even though it really is quite atrocious. Their iconic hairstyles are simply gone) and it’s the downright disrespectful appropriation going on in Pocahontas’ new look that merits more complaints. But this. THIS. They’ve taken poor Merida and turned her into exactly what she didn’t want to be. She’s clearly skinnier than before even though Brenda Chapman specifically designed her not to be, her poor precious face is almost unrecognisable and they put her in the dress that she hated, the dress that wasn’t just literally a physical constraint for her but symbolised everything that she hated about her life. They’ve put her in the dress that stands against everything she spent her entire film fighting against. They gave Merida choice and autonomy and now they’re taking it away just because they want her to fit in with the rest of the princesses. THE WHOLE POINT OF THE FILM AND THE CHARACTER WAS THAT SHE DOESN’T HAVE TO CONFORM TO OTHER PEOPLE’S EXPECTATIONS OF HER BUT THAT SHE CAN BE A STRONG, CONFIDENT AND STILL FEMININEYOUNG WOMAN ON. HER. OWN. TERMS.
And Disney’s gone and spit on all of that.
It’s not even the people who drew and designed her that want it, there are so many interviews and inside opinions where people specifically state that they hate what they’re doing to the characters with the redesigns, and that they keep trying to tone them down or keep them closer to the spirit of the originals. But marketing or whatever other crappy departments Disney have breathing down their necks forbid them from doing so and insist that no, make them look more ridiculous more horrible because this is Disney we don’t care about children growing up with healthy views on women all we care about is money and we’re sure this will get us lots of it omg so much money all the money leT’S EMBRACE THE MISOGYNY BECAUSE IT’LL GIVE US MORE CASH THAN WE KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.
It’s not even just me, there is petition going around for people to sign asking Disney to stop and change Merida back because no this is wrong this is disgusting and i am in literal tears right now i cant handle this shit.
so my little sister heard the ice cream truck and tried to grab her money and run after it but she couldn’t catch up so now she’s just kinda lying there on the street
that’s fucking genius
My name is Rosie. I’m 22. I grew up in Texas, about an hour south of Austin. I’m the oldest of 4 children; the child of teachers; on my way to be a teacher as well.
I’m a fan of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, of anime and manga, of magical girls and pirates. I’m a fanfic writer and reader, a con-goer and a casual cosplayer. I’m a nerd girl and a feminist.
I like Star Trek and blueberry muffins and really sweet tea mixed with lemonade and cowboy boots and my pet snake and playing N64 games.
And I’m bisexual.
In a lot of ways, my bisexuality is one of the least important things about who I am as a person. In other ways it is incredibly important. Being a bisexual woman changes the way the world treats me, the way our society treats me, and, sadly, it changes the way that fandoms and nerd culture and the media treats me.
And let me just say this: Fandoms, you really suck sometimes.
Before you click that read more, know this: I don’t speak for all LGBTQ+ fans. I speak only for myself, but this is as honest as I really know how to be, and I think that it’s something that should be said.
after seeing that update I wanted to draw SawTooth as some really HUGE robot instead of an adult-sized one
Omfg, what a concept! *w*
So the first one is animated but has crappy quality
and the second one isn’t animated but has slightly better quality.
WHY CAN’T I JUST HAVE BOTH PHOTOSHOP
IS IT TOO MUCH TO ASK
Pixar <3. The last part I think.

Prince Eri (parody of Prince Ali)
Enjoy this long-overdue musical number!!
Make way for Prince Eri!
Say ‘hey’, it’s Prince Eri!
Hey, clear the way on the meteor
Oh, I can’t believe that we got this chore
See once back in time, claimed he’d never get this far
Make way, here he comes, ring bells, bang the drums
Now I’m proven wrong, don’t laugh!
Prince Eri, fabulous he
Not a joke
Call it a hoax
Once so did we
And while I see you’re all calm
Cheer up or he’ll do you harm
Yes; celebrate with myself and miss Feferi!
Prince Eri, fishy is he
Now he’s stuck
Dressed like a duck
He fought with Scratch in his lair
Ascended up all the tiers
Slain on his bed, reappeared as
He’s got rifles: a champion sniper
And great magic: a wizard is he
When it comes to his blood, he is violet
He’s better than you
Highblood, it’s true
Wanna be with him? In your dreams!
Prince Eri, handsome is he
Doesn’t look good
Matching that streak
If fashion won’t leave you sunk
Then shack on up with this hunk
His hair like a purple skunk;
He’s Prince Eri.
There’s no question that he’s bold and daring
Though he cares too much about his hair, and
If you asked me I would say he’s unimpressive
He’s a winner, he’s a whaling wonder
But he’s hardly great when he goes under
Salted water ruins all his fav’rite dresses
He’s gone Hopey; that’s better than…Light thieves?!
Better than light thieves, liked more than light thieves.
Why’d he write that? He’s inviting beef.
Don’t question him, don’t question him
Maybe I should take over this praise theme
Why’d I work with him?!
Bowed to his whim
Patience is thin
So it’s time that I get even
Better yet, fear this new threat
Thief Vriska Serket!
Thought she’d lie down and not fight?
Don’t make that bet
And that, good people, is why
Prince Eridan’s fall is nigh!
She’s taller, hotter
Has hair to the floor
Got luck and pluck
with a fine ass, what’s more
With hoards of heroes
She’ll cross that zero
Survival, he can forget!
For Miss Serket!
