    “transition poses some ethical questions. Such as, from what age should you be allowed to irreversibly change your body.“

    This of course completely ignores the fact that puberty makes irreversible changes to your body. But let us just rephrase the question: “from what age do you gain bodily autonomy?” Now it gets very easy to answer: From the moment you’re fucking born.

    I know that Peter’s Jackson Lord of the Rings trilogy technically has flaws but also….it doesn’t. It’s perfect.

    Are these magic cloaks?’ asked Pippin, looking at them. with wonder.

    ‘I do not know what you mean by that,’ answered the leader of the Elves. ‘They are fair garments, and the web is good, for it was made in this land. They are Elvish robes certainly, if that is what you mean. Leaf and branch, water and stone: they have the hue and beauty of all these things under the twilight of Lorien that we love; for we put the thought of all that we love into all that we make.”

    - Fellowship of the Ring, Chapter 8: Farewell to Lorien

    This is how I think of Jackson’s movies. Yes, there are serious flaws - Gandalf’s de-powering, Gimli as comic relief, and Faramir, namely - but come on.

    Remember when the guys making their chain mail invented a new method for quickly producing large amounts of it by hand? Remember Miranda Otto walking down the street, practicing sword positions? The guys who forged all of the swords - for leads and for extras? The men and women riders who volunteered to be riders of Rohan? The costume designers who designed the inside of Theoden’s armor (which no one would ever see) so beautifully that Bernard Hill said he felt like a king? The friendships between the cast, and their size doubles, and the stuntmen?

    When they made that movie, they put all that they loved into all that they made.

    Wait tell me more about that chainmail thing

    byjoveimbeinghumble

    “Kaynemaile has worked tirelessly to perfect the material science behind beautiful architectural mesh, collaborating with architects and designers on projects that embolden urban environments with positive buildings. The company’s patented polycarbonate mesh, inspired by 2,000-year-old medieval chainmail, was initially created for the armor and weapons seen in the The Lord of The Rings movie trilogy and is now used on major architectural projects around the world.

    “The film’s art director and Kaynemaile’s founder Kayne Horsham worked with his team to construct each garment from plastic plumbing tubes, coating them in pure silver. Once filming wrapped, Horsham dedicated himself to creating a change to the liquid state assembly process to mass produce the polycarbonate chainmail for architectural applications — products that were light, but strong enough to protect the interior or exterior of a building. Now an industry-leading manufacturer, Kaynemaile produces mesh for everything from small interior screens to large scale exterior façades. Their mesh is easy to install and can be custom created for specialized applications.”

    they took forced perspective and scaled sets to a new level by adding moving set pieces to create the illusion that the hobbits and dwarves were much smaller than everyone else even when the camera moved.

    every scene you see in the 11+ hours of glory that is the LOTR masterpiece is most like ridiculously elaborate or expensive–from model towers to the all-new motion capture technology used for gollum to the costumes and sets to the aerial on location shots of mother-fracking new zealand and the big impressive battle scenes and horse charges.

    but then the story and the screenplay too–there is just SO much lore that is there in the background lurking if you want to look for it, yet it still remains simplified for the average viewer. Crazy impressive feat.

    And the acting is heartfelt and real and makes you love the characters.

    ALSO DON’T GET ME STARTED ON FREAKING HOWARD SHORE AND HIS 100+ HEARTSHATTERINGLY BEAUTIFUL LIETMOTIFS AND BRILLIANT SUBTLE VARIATIONS IN THE FLIPPING 13 HOUR SOUNDTRACK. AND ENYA SINGING IN REAL ELVISH.

    I remember watching the Oscars the year ROTK came out and it was just…openly accepted that it was going to sweep because of all the awards the trilogy had been snubbed for before. It was looked at askance because it was fantasy, and thus not serious, and basically the Academy was finally forced to recognize it.

    Imagine being so good at what you do that you force THE FUCKING ACADEMY to take you seriously.

    Summary:

    Azula helps her father escape to be the figurehead of a Fire Nation revolution. The Gaang filters their way back to the Fire Nation to help out while dealing with, of course, the politics that comes with a newly founded Republic City and a brewing Civil War (honestly, fuck politics but it's useful too ig?)

    Set after the series and the comic books. I recommend you look at those first, but if you can't be bothered (fair enough), Azula is out of the mental asylum, the Gaang are founding Republic City, the Kyoshi Warriors are becoming diplomats/bodyguards for the Fire Nation and the Firelord and Toph is vibing with her metal-bending school.

    Swear words, because Toph. Lesbians, because the Kyoshi Warriors. Sokka Centric and Azula Centric because I'm a simp.

    the way pjo wasn't even about percy

    chironshorseass

    hey taylorwhy do u leave this in the tags tho🥵

    because yes, it all started with luke, thalia, and annabeth. and they all have main character vibes in their own right. thalia sacrificed herself at the border of camp, becoming a literal tree and then coming back to life only to have the prophecy come down before her and have to choose between the gods and luke. she was horribly sidelined later on to become a hunter where all the potential heroines stay apparently but. luke...well, well, he was the one to create the conflict in the first place. he was the one to realize how fucked up the gods were, alongside thalia. only that he actually did something about it. it’s also important to note how his character probably changed drastically after thalia became a tree like!! and then there’s annabeth, the girl who hoped for a family when she’d been left by everyone else. despite luke’s betrayal, she still kept hope that he could change back. and then the most important thing about the great prophecy comes down to her and luke!!! percy just watches it unfold. because of her, they managed to defeat kronos. because of thalia, luke found a friend to vent his fears and issues with and someone who could run away alongside him. because of luke, the cataclysm to the great prophecy began. began on the run with thalia. that’s where they found annabeth, and when they found a family. and because of annabeth, hope managed to survive, and luke managed to free himself from kronos. so!!!!!!

    god mari you're right.

    when annabeth said "i'm nobody's sidekick..."

    like YEAH babe you're right. pjo was about YOU.

    posallys

    i 100% will die saying that percy would NOT have given luke the knife if annabeth wasn't there. percy absolutely did not trust luke enough to give him that power. the ONLY reason percy handed him the knife is because he looked at annabeth and saw it in her face. and he trusts annabeth more than he trusts anyone, and he knows that she wouldn't do something if she didn't think it would work. so he believes in her, and the trust that SHE had in luke, and he gives luke the knife.
