THE MEN OF TUMBLR ARE IN COSMOPOLITAN MAGAZINE
OH MY GOSH
no but really if they aren’t setting this up to be an epic romance that culminates in John and Sherlock finally realizing, finally at the right time, that they are completely and hopelessly in love with each other then I really have no fucking idea what on god’s green earth they’re doing.

*has war flashbacks to the introduction of WHAT IS AIR*
The original story of the little mermaid is that she must kill the prince in order to be human, and in the end, she loves him too much and kills herself instead.
The artwork is too great not to reblog.
Ok, ok - important expansion: she only has to kill the Prince because the deal was if he fell in love with her she could be human forever, and he didn’t. By which I mean, he was a good person and genuinely nice to her, but he didn’t fall in love. He fell in love with someone else, also perfectly nice - not the seawitch in disguise, fu Disney. The Mermaid is told she can only return to the sea now if she kills the Prince. She goes into the room where he and his lover lie sleeping and they look so beautiful and happy together that she can’t do it.
That’s why she kills herself. And because it was a noble act she returns to sea as foam.
One moral of the story was that women shouldn’t fundamentally change who they are for love of a man, and in theory Han Christian Anderson wrote it for a ballerina with whom he fell in love. She was marrying someone else who wouldn’t let her dance.
Well shit man
I feel like everyone always tries to apply the same message of “don’t change for a man” to the Disney version, but I really don’t think she changed for a man in that movie.
I mean she dreamed about the surface for years and years, she collected all kinds of random bullshit, she was obsessed with it long before she ever saw the prince. That was just a catalyst, but Ariel’s story wasn’t about her changing herself to get her man, it was about being true to who she was and what she wanted.
Disney went in a different direction than the story and that’s fine, I think. I think they’re both trying to send the fundamental lesson of being true to yourself in slightly different ways and both work.
the thing that really worked about harry, hermione, and ron was that they were all the uncomfortable third friend
