You were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And do you know what? So was I.
ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.
ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg. power stats make them unbeatable and if you encounter one, maybe just curl up and forfeit, to save time.
ESFP: giggly little shits. fun fun fun till her daddy takes the t-bird away. great for lifting your mood, not that great at lifting your credit score.
ESFJ: too appropriate, totally lacking in awkwardness. they’ll never forget your birthday, which will make you feel like shit when you constantly forget theirs.
ENTP: excellent companions if you enjoy people who instantly see through all your shit. very clever and very intuitive, you can’t fool them. i suggest you invest in other friends — ones you *can* fool.
ENTJ: impatient with people who make mistakes, namely, everyone. they’ll respect you if you stand up to them but why do that when you can run away instead. cuddle them and see what happens. i’m curious.
ENFP: too puppy to live. best suited for the profession of musical nanny. not advised for use around an open flame.
ENFJ: way too charming and capable, maybe they should stop making everyone else look bad. prone to making other people care about stuff they didn’t want to care about. so annoying.
ISTP: such butts. best suited for an apocalypse scenario, if no such scenario exists, they will create danger because they get bored. don’t encourage them, but don’t discourage them, as reverse psychology works too well.
ISTJ: low drama and low maintenance, best value at this price tier. best suited to actual human existence. least weird, which makes them kinda weird.
ISFP: squishy little darlings you might want to keep in your pocket, but please don’t or they will become forlorn. they notice everything, and it’s unnerving.
ISFJ: quietly and proudly do things for others. if you have a ring you need to deliver to mordor, take an ISFJ along with you for best results.
INTP: cute intergalactic spiders you want to hug and mistrust. prone to making you laugh but then days later you will wonder whether you were the butt of the joke.
INTJ: major dicks and kinda proud of it. prone to being right. prone to liking trance music way too much. all the ones i’ve ever met have been unexpectedly kinky. so i guess, expectedly.
INFP: they fall out of the sky and are raised by unicorns. if you feed one it will follow you home. they dissipate in water.
INFJ: chameleons appropriating your emotions and going quietly mad. prone to meltdowns and needing lots of naps.
#LET ME TELL SOMETHING. DIVERSITY IS NOT JUST ABOUT HAVING DIFFERENT SKIN COLORS, OKAY? IT’S ABOUT HAVING ACTUAL DIFFERENT PEOPLE. CHARACTERS THAT ARE BELIEVABLE AND DIFFERENT AND REAL. I’M SO TIRED OF SEEING MOVIES, ANIMATED OR LIVE ACTION, HAVING FEMALE CHARACTERS WITH THE SAME FACE AND EXPRESSIONS AND BODY LANGUAGE WHO BARELY EXPRESS THEIR SEXUALITY OR HAVE NORMAL, NATURAL REACTIONS AND INTERACTIONS AND EXPRESSIONS THAT MATCH THEIR CHARACTERS WHEN AROUND THEIR LOVED ONES. LOOK AT THESE THREE. THEY ARE ALL STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS, BUT HOW DIFFERENTLY THEY ACT AROUND THE MEN THEY LOVE. LOOK AT THEIR EXPRESSION WHEN PLEASED OR EXCITED. JUST LOOK AT THESE THREE. LOOK HOW DIFFERENT THEY ARE. HOW REAL. HOW BELIEVABLE. HOW BEAUTIFUL.
#httyd2 #has some really good female characterswho stand alone and not in the shadow of a male counter part #ruffnut is probably more developed than her twin brother #astrid doesn’t need hiccup to save her she can fight all by herself and she is the one to comfort and give him advice #and valka is a fearless dragon warrior but also a loving mother who wants her son to forgive her and to approve of her and understand her choices
But still… It would be nice to have them be different skin colors tho….
White people: “LOOK AT ALL THIS DIVERSITY ALL THE LADIES HAVE A PERSONALITY aND ALSO DIFFERENT HAIR COLORS I LOVE DIVERSITY WHO NEEDS POC FOR DIVERSITY”
yes, you obviously make 100% perfect sense because if you think even a little about the place and time of the movie there should obviously be more poc. it’s not like they are viking, which are norse, which haha, all had fairer skin and hair. but nononono, theres no poc because they are racist, or something. obviously.
Yes I think poc need to represented but where its logical but throwing a random poc in the middle of this movie would have been illogical and horribly inaccurate. also dont even think about pointing out how there are dragons and they are oh so illogical themselves. its a movie about dragons, of course there are going to be dragons and if this was pretty much any other place at any other time period then yes, please, add poc, make the star a poc, it would be fucking fantastic!
honestly, please, think with a small bit of logic. I understand why you want them in the movie, in all movies actually, but in all reality, its a norse movie, set long ago, there were just no poc around in that time. yes, they really were all fair skinned people. So, sorry there were going for historical accuracy (or as much as there can be in a movie about dragon) and didn’t add any poc.
you didnt notice how the only poc in the whole movie was the villian. and maybe that one other guy but thats it. thats called coding. makind the main villains poc is not unintentional believe it or not, its the same as queer coding. when the villains, especially male ones, have flamboyant characteristics. that subconsciously enables the audiance to link those characteristics with bad things and bad people.
also let me tell you how much that horseshit abt vikings being all fair and pasty white and blonde and blue eyed is untrue. vikings extended their trades rly rly rly far to the south way to the mediterranean which guess what, had poc from all sorts of places sailing on it. poc made their pay to the viking community be it because they were slaves who buyed their freedom or just decided to settle up north bc they simply felt like it. you also have sami people which live guess where? scandinavia.
“its a norse movie, set long ago, there were just no poc around in that time. yes, they really were all fair skinned people.” lmao wow yeah poc didnt come into existence in europe till around 1900 i totally forgot that.
poc have existed in europe throughout history for as long as you can think of, its just that ridic white ppl want to kinda erase and deny that to defend their favourite companies blatantly refusing to add actual representation to movies.
“So, sorry there were going for historical accuracy (or as much as there can be in a movie about dragon) and didn’t add any poc.” they werent? because the vikings in this movie have absolutely nothing to do with actual historical vikings?? vikings didnt have horned helmets lmao
So, sorry there were going for historical accuracy (or as much as there can be in a movie about dragon) and didn’t add any poc.
#sorry this just bothered me #httyd2 #i want equal representation #i swear #but there is logic to it #and i cant fault dreamwork for that
bullshit theres no but after i want equal representation. you can totally fault dreamworks for that bc who else do we put at fault?? people are kissing their asses bc they managed to do one thing right? like yes good job on the animation of female characters, they did much much better than disney,but that doesnt make them the golden studio. by the way animation for dreamworks is now is even easier. they have a new software which expands their ability to animate to whole new levels so they really have no excuse as to why they didnt add more poc to their movie. goodbye.
I find both of these arguments valid. Drago bothered me because he was the only poc, however Dreamworks Is leaps and bounds ahead if Disney when it comes to diversity in general, and that is why I love HTTYD. This is coming from a poc, me. There is one other poc I can think of in the franchise: Trader Johan. Trader Johan is in the tv series and is not a regular villager, but still played an important role in several episodes. He was well loved by Berk and the surrounding clans, even the enemies. For being only a reoccurring character, he had tremendous character development considering there are only 20 episodes that are 20 minutes long, and none of it had to do with the fact that his skin was a different color.
HTTYD isn’t flawless, but it’s still brilliant in the way that no character is over shadowed. They are all unique in personality and appearance which cannot be said for other animation films, and the storytelling is powerful.
You will never take another mage as you took him!
After all, he learned from the best…
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
