Hey!!!!! You!!!!! *waves frantically* Hello!!!! Look at us!!! We are so Progressive (!!!) and Modern (!!!)
*grabs inspiring story template*
*slaps the word “destiny”, “family”, “chi”, a bunch of proverbs, and some pictures of a phoenix on it*
Behold!!! It is now Chinese™!!!
*looks at the all-white production team*
haha yes diversity level 10000000
I mean, I know Chinese. But I don’t. I mean I’m meant to, but I don’t. Actually, you know what? I’m MEANT to know it because I’ve been learning it for the past seven years but all my class did last year was be racist to the teacher while I tried to get the ground to swallow me while reading some book.
This reminds me of something my ap world said, its called confusism
So…was the Mulan live action movie good? Because I loved the Mulan animated film and lowkey Shang was the best Disney Prince EVER. I heard they dont have a Shang in the live action so I refuse to watch it anyway.
The movie was… problematic. For starters, much of the production cast was white and there were a ton of inaccuracies despite them wanting to tell a more faithful story to the original. There was also controversy over them filming near Chinese concentration camps and the actress for Mulan defending police brutality in Hong Kong. I haven’t seen…[Read more]
Yeh, I know that the live action wanted to go for a more realistic and representative kinda picture which is why they removied Mushu (fine by me) but honestly I did love Shang and Mulan’s relationship in both instances when she was disguised as a guy and when she was brought out to be a girl. But, your points are quite fair regarding the fact that…[Read more]
y’all there’s a chinese-made, more accurate (and darker, I don’t think there’s any, *cough cough* scenes, but i haven’t seen it) mulan movie called mulan: rise of a warrior
*cries in being forced to watch the animated movie five times a year for seven years because my teacher thinks we like it but I’m just there for the popcorn*
Disney’s just making their own hole even deeper with the live actions… and wow, Mulan 2020 is a mess. They’ve messed up the cultural elements in the story and the fake feminism, and the fact that it was filmed close to an concentration camp is very problematic. I’m also fine with Shang and Mushu being out because for me, Shang was “just…[Read more]
Coco and Moana had some offensive bits but there were parts when the respective culture was depicted well, and Polynesian and Latino people had also stated representation was ok on those. Seems like Disney is just not even trying to be culturally accurate or make a solid story nowdays. Hope the future films prove me wrong…….
that’s a sharp outfit Chan
Careful, you could puncture the hull of an empire class fire nation battleship, leaving thousands to drown at sea.
Oh I feel guilty. I’m watching this with my friend.
My friend was ranting about how much she hated the bald lil kid.
yes that’s his name. Is he likeable? Protagonist or antagonist?
RIP Joanne Kathleen Rowling, 1965-2020.
RIP (dw I know), eh you won’t be that missed because you were honestly a bit of a ****. Also you didn’t do anything special or write any books because dobby write the hp books and you just passed them as your own
*I bow my head and lay a single white lily on the ground*
You were so great. Were.
she wrote a book about a man dressing up as a muslim woman that kills people
Wrong on so many levels
She really said ✨d o w n g r a d e✨
She wrote a book about a man dressed as a Muslim woman who KILLS people. How utterly sick is that. Sorry, JK but just because you wrote one of the best books of all time doesn’t mean we’ll disregard your horrid comments.
Okay, I know this opinion isn’t needed but I went and did a bit more research into JK’s book (its called Troubled Youth) and watched a video on someone who was trans and had actually read the book that is supposedly transphobic and like, apparently its not even that badly implying transphobia from JKs behalf.I know she has said dumb stuff but…[Read more]
Yeah, I agree. I don’t think R.I.P. is necessary, and I haven’t read it, but if those accusations are true then JK is very much in the wrong.
Oh, that’s true. The problem is, she’s blatantly spoken out against trans people before and published an essay against them. If she hadn’t done any of that, her new book would still have been iffy but probably passable. But since she’s expressed that she’s against trans people before, we know that this new book isn’t just a coincidence. But I see…[Read more]
No, I mean, JK just wrote a book where a killer was crossdressing and people thought it was transphobic of her.
Yeah, but we’re pretty sure the premise of the book was directed at trans people because of her past statements.
I get that, I really do but regarding the book (its troubled blood not troubled youth, I made a mistake on the books name earlier on) but its just the main antagonist/character is just dressing up to lure in victims~ its a technique for the killer and the character isnt even trans. Besides, actually, I heard that one of her books ‘The Silkworm’…[Read more]

It’s very har…[Read more]
I think that R.I.P. isn’t necessary and that there are other, more sensible and effective ways to ‘cancel’ J.K. and spread more awareness of her behaviours towards trans people. I do think that she is the wrong, but judgement shouldn’t be overtly harsh or childish. What she has been doing is most certainly wrong, but it should be taken more…[Read more]
It depends on what the story is about. I think if it’s about an actual trans person killing people, yes that is transphobic. But if it’s about a person who dresses up as the opposite gender to kill people, that’s a bit different. If it’s about a person who dresses up as a woman to kill people, I don’t think that’s as transphobic as an actually tr…[Read more]
Ok, I read your thing @/cutenesslily. I do have to say, I agree with the don’t trust a man in a dress thing you said. What I meant was depending on the way it was written, it may be more or less transphobic
Okay, so I completely and utterly understand where you are coming from. But, Blair honestly opened my eyes and she doesnt seem bothered and I mean, i know it did hurt people and like Blaire said “Is there even a rational reason as to why there shouldn’t be a transgender villain? “( even though according to Blaire, there was nothing transgender…[Read more]
Hi there. It’s Lani again (Lani, remember, never Elania). I already introduced you to my life. I suppose I should provide some more information. I live…[Read more]
Did I just create an extensive layout of an entire country and its surroundings for a cliche YA short story? Yes, yes I did.
(This was very rushed lol, I did it in about five minutes in between school periods so excuse any tyspoes or inconsistencies)
Okay but why do YA books love to capitalize nouns and make them into places or objects so much
They feel the need to make some words more important than others, so that there is a hierarchy, even between words on a page.
MOOD like you never know what sounds stupid and fake vs what sounds fantastical and yet believable
Like if you’re naming a big huge rift in the middle of the country the Rift sounds better than something like Verxengria or smth you know
Though Elioto is very vey right it’s so dang generic and should be avoided

Reposting this because it got pushed down a bit and I would like to add on to Poet’s post:
Ahhh I can’t wait for the movie cast! I’m so excited to see who was cast as Sophie and Agatha. One thing that I’ve been noticing though- I saw a lot of people who wanted to play Sophie or Agatha or another character in the series and were calling for open…[Read more]
I get that. Lol my post started as a joke and now I feel bad cos peeps felt that way and tbh I kinda do as well.
this. everything about this post is correct and valid.
Many know how badly I wanted to be Sophie. I may find it hard to watch the movie. It was perfect timing for it with my age. If the actor playing Sophie is really good, then yeah, I won’t be upset. Right now it’s just raw.
I try to be reasonable with the movie crew and their decision. 💛

YES! Thank you! In our weekly newsletter i do with some friends on this site i am including a little snippet on that and i am saying that Paul Feig is an incredibly successful director and we should just trust him!
Oh, sorry if it seemed like I was trying to force my opinion. This is just the way I see it and I think we should respect the casting director’s choice. It’s totally fine to be disappointed or upset, we just don’t want to hate on the people who got parts.
Oh I meant Penelope. Different people being cast won’t change my perspective towards the movie. I just think people should have had a chance.
Oop @cocostar yeah you are right, and sorry! Truly!
here is what i am putting in
It was confirmed in a recent interview, released on September 12th, that Paul had found a Sophie and Agatha. He HAS NOT announced the actresses to the public! We do not know if the other characters have been casted, though we assume many were if the two main…[Read more]
I understand why some people are upset at the recent casting news. I understand why you are upset and those feelings are completely valid. However, try not to blame Soman, Paul Feig, Jun and so on.
Let’s not divide the fandom we’ve all built together! Let’s continue to build a wonderful, crazy, technicolour place where ideas multiply and…[Read more]
Hi there, I’m Elania Jackery, but call me Lani. I never go by Elania because I’m not girly at all, unlike all those other popular girls who get all the guys. I’m an orphan and I never knew my parents, so I really don’t have any cause to keep the name they gave me. I’m not pretty at all. My horrible mousy brown hair only falls in dark waves that…[Read more]

Hi. I’m Maxine, but call me Max. You’re not my friend and I hate you. I’m so angsty and gothy òwó. No one loves me and I hate myself. Life ***** and did I mention that no one loves me
as your triplet I’m very concerned, but then again, it’s probably just what you, the boomer, does.
I’d do one but I’ve been blessed with never reading any such thing.
I didn’t read the last half and just read the comments and I was confused and XDDDDD tag me.
Every single sentence: “…because I’m an orphan” TOO TRUE
And the love triangle–
Don’t we just love those characters with the midnight-black skin and the sun-kissed mocha complexion with a golden sheen which resembles the hoarded treasures of the culturally-insensitive and ethnically ambiguous Arab king written by a white author who didn’t do any research 😍
WHY IS THIS SO ACCURATE: it’s either this or a men writer who is like : she wasn’t like the rest of the girls James had met. She could.. READ. James was horrified
or the male writers who go into detail with describing their girl/women character’s bre– you know what, I’ll stop right there.
I need to be tagged for those. Please do more XD

There was this one book I read that was pretty much a Harry Potter ripoff AND THE MALE AUTHOR KEPT COMMENTING ON EVERY FEMALE CHARACTER’S CHEST

Oh my gosshie jeepers lil bro that was amazing
First of all thank you and secondly *huggles* VACKNSPARKLE was an extraordinary story that I got to write with extraordinary people, including you, and the Potato Kingdom speaks for itself. Tis very fun to have out OTK convos in DMs and yeah wow words are hard. Anyway, thank you child you are amazing
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CATS (yes I was spoeing), you are so fricking awesome and yeah really cool and weird in a cool way. I don’t know you that well but from all I’ve seen of you you legit seem like one of the coolest people on here. But yeah, happy birthday
Happy bday Sis!!!!!!!! I sent you something on Discord when you have the time to check!
Course! Love you Sissssss! (And yes I did spam you at exactly midnight my time with birthday stuff for no reason other than I love you and omg I gotta go get a pic of your card later)
I sent you your bday card on Discord as well as a little message along with the spamming so you might have a ton of notifs from me but it’s fine
Ngl Olaf’s Frozen Adventure may have been a cash grab and completely unnecessary but Anna and Elsa’s harmonies were on point

OMG YEAH OWJOEIW AND ANNA’S “WE PLANNED A PARTY AS A BIG SURPRISE”
Oh I can record something and send it to you, I can sound like her but I WISH IT WAS NATURAL TwT in my dreams I do.
my dreams are normally filled with haunted dolls and future seeing TVs. (remember that update? I had the same dream last night and the night before so I took a break from horror. I’m totally ruining myself by watching Killer Queen XD)
I still find it hard to believe I got nightmares from Doctor Strange and I watched Killer Queen which has people getting their heads and limbs chopped off and an insane, creepy amount of blood and slept very peacefully. Why Doctor Strange?
hmmm. I think it’s because I watched it with my family friends and there was this one guy who kept hitting my face with a pillow and kept shoving a picture of a ****** person with no limbs in my face. That was back when I hated horror. Also, that guy was what, fifteen then? I worry for his immatureness.
I think he was thirteen at the time actually. He’s fifteen now and still hasn’t changed. He sees an opportunity to annoy me? Takes it. *flashback to how we were watching Aladdin and all he did in the movie was point out plot holes and bloopers*
I’ll tell him he was punched virtually. He’s also known as the guy that went deep. A long story behind that nickname – the Deep Guy. It always makes me and my friend crack up.
okay, so basically we were watching MIB 2 or something because we got shouted at for having a violent pillow fight (there were 10 of us there and we were all being babysitter by this one guy that was WAYYYY too immature to be responsible for us) but we were all bored and the conversation somehow led to me ranting about my enemy. Then out of the…[Read more]
Noooooo he’s NOT a nerd. He’s SMART but he’s like in a sport school and is actually really good at basically every sport he does.
