bandersnatchers:

I like believing that Slytherins did fight in the battle, fought for their home, where they grew up. They probably dropped the cloaks and ties in order to not be a target.

Slytherins levitating rubble off of students

Slytherins sending the spiders flying out windows

Slytherins using hidden passages to evacuate students

Slytherins using hidden passages to sneak up on the enemy

Slytherins with no death eater affiliations, fighting death eaters to save their friends

Slytherins with death eater affiliations going through a mental turmoil as they have to make a decision on which home means more to them, and choosing Hogwarts.

Slytherins, fighting for Hogwarts because hogwarts is home. Where they had their first crush, kiss, ghost encounter. Where they learned how to read the stars and bottle fame. Where they met the people they now call brothers and sisters.

Slytherins man. Teenagers fighting in a war that they never should have to, but doing it anyway because they protect what is theirs.

Can you explain to me why you like Pacific Rim? I'm trying to get my sister to watch the movie. She doesn't want to because she doesn't want to see everyone die.

gamoria:

anon i am SO glad you asked. (note: also read these explanations)

1) It’s a hopeful apocalyptic movie

humanity doesn’t give up when you set an insurmountable task in front of them they fight back because even though we hate and kill and envy and loathe we also love and respect we have hope in the face of death because even if we die it will mean something for the others.

2) It has characters that act like humans

 Raleigh Becket is the new and improved white male protag meaning his backstory gives him angst without fridging women for it, he’s allowed to show emotion, he’s also respectful, kind and and understands obedience (even if he doesn’t always follow directions.) He also is an actual gentleman who cares deeply about mako.

 Mako Mori is the the true main character of the film who displays the Japanese culture respectfully and is allowed to cry and have emotions while still being bad ass and capable aka she’s a real person and is portrayed that way.

3) It introduces the concept of Drift Compatibility

 we literally didn’t have a word for this in our language before now because it’s different for every pair but at its core it’s a bond between soulmates (but without the ~romantic connotations that word brings). For Raleigh and Mako it introduces the idea that people could be in love (or not depending on how you want to watch the movie) without needing to kiss or have sex or even talk about it instead they understand and support each other through everything.

the Drift connects people in a way we can’t even fathom it’s not love or friendship or familial loveit’s all of these and none of these all at the same time, it’s deeper than we can imagine.

4) The detail is painstaking and gorgeous

 circular storytelling at its finest, history repeats itself in different ways and del Toro shows this by reinforcing important ideas with repetition

the colours and their symbolism are so important in this movie i could study this movie for years and not understand every part of itthe cinematography is also absolutely gorgeous

5) And finally, its influence

my hope is that this movie will inspire others— little kids will see it and know you can have an action flick while still portraying characters as realistic people with emotions

movie makers will see an original story (original as in not based on a book or a sequel, not that it isn’t influenced by others that came before) that may not have done that well in the box office but still impacted the people who saw it, that wasn’t cynical, and want to make more of it

and the people who are normally not represented well or at all in the action genre can enjoy watching something that respects them.

In conclusion: Pacific Rim is important because it’s different.

This comic I made over a year ago, but I’ve touched it up since and I’m happy to share it on tumblr C: while I’ve improved immensely since I made this, I’m still really proud of myself for making it.

ps. this was during a stage in my art where I was a little texture heavy, heh heh
