MAES'D

I saw this on campus. I laughed. So now, I share.

MEME TIME!

ASK MY CHARACTER ANYTHING!



1.) Post below with your character.
2.) Other characters/muns ask questions about their life in Veles, head canon, etc.
3.) Characters react ICly
4.) PROFIT!

The crack-filled innards of my brain...

This was prompted by an incredible thread in which Kohl and Roxas tried to explain first homosexuality, then sex in general, to Giselle. It ended up with her figuring that she needed to go and get some books.

However, I do love crack. Therefore I would like to present to you...

Why Disney meant Giselle to be a lesbian

(Or at least not just heterosexual.)
  1. At no point does it ever say that a "true love's kiss" needs to be between a man and a woman. Even Giselle has spotted this one.
  2. "I've been dreaming of a true love's kiss, and a Prince I'm hoping comes with this." - Well, she was wrong about the Prince thing. So why shouldn't it be a Princess, and not a Prince?
  3. "For lips are the only things that touch." - I'm not going to say it. I'm just going to... leave this here.
  4. When Nathan climbs out of the manhole, he gets asked whether he's "looking for a beautiful girl too?" His reply: "No. I'm looking for a prince, actually." Yup, subtle, that one.
  5. It's Giselle that seems to work towards charming Nancy, with the flowers and doves. And in her song, "How does she know?", it's difficult to say which angle Giselle is singing from -- to a female or from one. On a similar note, Giselle says that a female statue is beautiful and compliments Mrs. Banks (from the divorcing couple).
  6. Apples. Yes, it's a Snow White reference, but they also have symbolic references. Cut horizontally, it's a star; cut vertically, it looks like female anatomy.
  7. "To the gay refrain of our happy working song~" - Yes, Disney means gay as happy, but there is a double-meaning now that Giselle has been transferred into the real world.
  8. "I guess a new experience would be worth trying." - Well, she says it herself.
  9. Giselle also looks like a budding feminist; she really takes a shine to the "Important Women of our Time" book. Although this doesn't automatically imply lesbianism, the two do often go together.

Also, Disney isn't actually as 'set' in its gender roles as people tend to assume. Mulan disguises herself as a man. 'Ariel' is actually a gender-neutral name, and with the fish-tail, who knows? Pinocchio is also on a major search to be a "real boy", suggesting some flexibility in ideas.

And then, well... it's Giselle who plays the 'prince' role at the end of the film. Of course, this might just be the fact that she can stick up for herself ;-), but it's worth remembering that the rules just aren't so strict anymore.


Is this is any way sensible? Oh lord, no.

Was it fun to string out? Oh yes.

:D

Headcanon Meme

Because memes aren't a bad thing, and vaguely useful informative ones are even better!

We all have headcanon right? Things that weren't quite covered in canon, or weren't covered sufficiently, or were never even touched on at all and so you have to speculate and extrapolate and all those other fun -ates.

Anyway, the way this works is that you post with your characters and other people ask you questions. About your characters opinions about something, what happened during such and such a time that canon oh so helpfully skipped over. Feel free to make your questions and answers as long and probing as you want so we can all find out a bit more about your characters.

Oh, and I know we're all cool and chill adults, so I shouldn't have to say this, but no bashing on another person's headcanon. And no acting as though your headcanon is actual canon.

Got it?

Okay go!

Quick, someone with a gun!

Or at least, a willigness to stop a late-night fight in a corridor...

Anyone (particularly one of the city patrol, perhaps?) want to intervene on this piece of batshit by your resident elleth? As entertaining as it's turning out, I'm not sure that people would want it going on in their hallway. :D

BECAUSE I'M A MORON

BECAUSE I'M A MORON AND LEFT THE OTHER COMMS BEFORE I COULD SAY GOODBYE YOU'RE GETTING IT HERE ;o;


The day has finally come to leave DF, though I'm sure it's no surprise since I've been so inactive here recently. I've been in this game for years now, so it's been hard to drop even though I knew I needed to.

both Allen Walker scarredpierrot  and Cielo dyausa_pita  are going wherever the fluxgate feels like sending them.

The Sherwood Cafe is being left in the capable hands of Lina Inverse and Edward Elric, and Cielo's collection of fabulous sweaters is up for grabs to anyone besides him who'd actually dare to wear them in public >.>



So thanks for some of the best memories I've had in RP, stay classy DF~

/SOB I'LL MISS YOU

KOHL IS A FRIGGIN JEKYLL/HYDE!

Here, in this thread alone, he's all sweet and sunshine with Chii, and the burning Devil's Advocate with Artanis.

It's beautiful.

Too much time for nothing...

I read too much, I think. Even the classics never seem to stop being interesting to me.
