She will be amazing.
River Song’s timeline (so far), in pictures.
I’m really glad someone figured this out and put it in order. =)
This is awesome. It’s the best explanation I’ve seen so far of her time line. Her past is so confusing. Now it just needs the pictures from The Name of the Doctor.
You know it’s been one of those days when you actually get everything done that YOU needed to do and then you get chastised for being selfish and not doing the stuff that anyone could have done. And don’t even think about pointing that lovely tidbit out!
“How dare your homework for senior math class be more important than washing your dad’s undershirts (even though he’s moving out) and teaching your freshman sister that she actually has to do her hw if she ever wants to go to college? What, you have a C in math four weeks before high school ends? You’ve never had less than an A! Why? And why don’t you have a driver’s license and a full ride scholarship and a job and you’re going to get a rude awakening in college! I’d like to see you manage your own laundry, dishes, school, work, and finances! Don’t even think about hobbies!”
“you know what, screw it. I’ll do just fine in college because for once, I’ll be allowed to prioritize my actual needs before everyone else’s wants. Huh, maybe I’ll have enough free time that I can make a decision to do some real service for others.”
Sigh… Yeah, it’s been one of those days… Now to go to bed and affirm a better tomorrow…
I can’t wait for college.
she is such a great lady.
*cries with utter joy*
SHE DID IT THE EXACT SAME WAY WHAT
NEED MONEY FOR COLLEGE
NEED COLLEGE FOR JOB
NEED JOB FOR MONEY
WHO THE FUCK DESIGNED THIS SYSTEM
Forgot this part:
NEED EXPERIENCE FOR JOB
NEED JOB FOR EXPERIENCE
SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE THE WORLD’S JUST LAUGHING AT ME
Add a car to this and you’ve got me.
I wanted to make a comment about this little scene a long time ago. It’s probably obvious, but I thought it was interesting.
When Uncle Ubb turns around and pulls down the fake beard he’s wearing, that sort of opened my eyes to something. And this is the obvious part: a portion doesn’t go to charity. It goes to his family.
I just think it’s kind of surprising that he was giving part of his money to his family- which is nice, and all, I guess- but he never realized they were just using him for his money.
That’s why I felt so bad for him when his family left him. He brought it upon himself, obviously, but he didn’t realize what he was doing. And that sort of breaks my heart.
This made me think of something. What if he actually thought he was giving money to charity? What if his family was making up bogus causes for him to donate money to and just stole it? In the scene where he’s walking to his office, we see his mother doing paperwork. If she was in charge of the books, that might explain why when the company went under, he had nothing left to fall back on.
I mean, they made it look like picking the tuffs was so hard, but the method they were using would obviously make the job hard. They could have just gotten ladders and used both hands to do the job. I mean, the Once-ler himself showed how easy it was the harvest the tuffs. He had a whole bunch pulled off the one tree in the time it took the Lorax to arrive and walk over. Yet, they had this invention to pluck tuff by tuff.
They didn’t want to put in the hard work, so instead, they convinced him to make a factory. Then they could sit back and do minimal work while the machines got rid of the trees. They were probably paid for that. Then, on top of that, I’m sure the Once-ler gave them money since they were family and all.
But what if it wasn’t enough? They convinced him to donate to charity, when, in reality, that charity was fraudulent. Really, it emptied into their bank accounts.
When the company ran out, they left not because the money had stopped flowing really. But because they were getting as much as they could get. They took everything and left. And the Once-ler had no funds left to even make up for what he had done, which is why the place was still a wasteland when Ted arrives. Shunned by society and penniless, the Once-ler had no other option but to wait for someone else to care.
He did. But what could he do with a seed and a polluted world? He couldn’t risk planting it when he couldn’t clean the water, or clean the land, or anything. He could only wait.
Excuse me I am going to go cry now.
Can we just take a minute to appreciate what an amazing person Rapunzel’s father is? We see him for just a few short sections without him talking at all and can already tell what an amazing person he is. Look at the first gif. You can FEEL how heartbroken he is because he thinks that his wife is going to die. You can see in his face how much he loves her with his whole heart and you can see that if he could somehow take her place instead, he would. He holds his wife’s hand tighter and doesn’t want her to lose that grip. He wants her here with him and he will do anything for that to happen. In the second gif you can see that he is just hoping that this magic flower will work. You can tell he’s still very concerned for his wife. His head is on the back of her head and he slowly lifts her head up and you can tell that in his mind he is thinking “Please let this work. Please. I can’t lose you. I need you,” and maybe he is thinking, “You are my dream” just like Rapunzel was Eugene’s dream. You can just tell that he is a wonderful, loving, sweet, honest man.
you know what’s really amazing about this movie is that Rapunzel’s parents don’t actually have a speaking part at all, but from reflecting on the movie the first time we saw it both me and my boyfriend could have sworn we heard them speak just a few lines. in this scene in particular:
you can see him saying how much he misses his daughter without him speaking a single word. that is amazingly expressive animation.
All of the above. The King and Queen will always be my favorite characters in this film, for the sheer unbridled humanity they exhibit with their love for one another and their subjects.
No wonder Rapunzel turned out so wonderful.
