Yondu and Kraglin from GOTG make me feel better about my teeth. I have a noticeable overbite and a bit of a lisp which I’ve always felt insecure about (especially when smiling) but seeing these two badass characters with, to quote Rocket, “ugly ass” teeth and not giving a single damn is just so reassuring that it’s okay not to have a perfect smile.
“When Will My Life Begin” Reprise (the song Rapunzel sings when she first leaves the tower) captures all the joyful feelings I used to have. It makes me miss the time I could enjoy Summer without unexplained depression.
I grew up with a lot of Disney and became a big reader in Middle School. When I first read the original Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Little Mermaid I started crying. I later felt better because I saw how Disney puts both light and darkness in their films. Fans talk harshly about the inaccuracy and I wish they took into consideration the fact that watching these movies is the only thing that lets people feel hope when life grows uncertain–as good or bad as the execution may be. I appreciate Disney more because of the once bad endings.
I miss the IG disney fandom. It was really filled with great people and it was my escape. I grew to end up loving Silvermist more and the art of the Tinkerbell movies, my editing skills also improved most on that time other than any other time ive been editing. Sometimes, i just really want to know what happened over the course of 3 years that caused everyone to leave. It was filled with drama, but i just couldnt believe that that abled this fandom to stop growing.
When I was 11, I used to act out scenes from the movie alone in my room, and that was honestly what made me realize I wanted to pursue musical theatre (fitting now, since it’s on Broadway!). Frozen is a huge part of me. Yes, it may be overrated, but I really love it, and I’ve learned not to care what people say about it.
“Pooh bear singing about his appetite and being “short, fat, proud of that” helped my confidence and eating disorder.”
“I think the best memory I have involving Mulan is when I was a little kid I didn’t understand why Mulan was so nervous about being naked in the pond with Ling, Yao, and Chien Po. At the time I didn’t know anything about the difference between the male/female bodies so now that I’m an adult the scene is so much more funny to me”
“My family is going on a vacation to Florida this summer. I’m super bummed that we aren’t going to Disney World. I even told them I would go alone for a day because I want to go back to a Disney park so bad. They except my love for Disney but done understand exactly what it really means to me.”
