Small Town Witch studies, Kitty at Vincent’s pad.
I’m training myself to like drawing environments, since I’m going to be doing a lot of them.
” Sophie , you’re beautiful! “
#no but like #you don’t understand how important and meaningful sophie’s arc in this movie is #she starts out hating herself because she believes herself to be ugly and dumb#then she’s turned into an old hag and promptly loses most of her insecurities because she no longer has to care about being beautiful #then we find out the curse weakens whenever she is being strong and it shows her real self underneath #which means the curse is mostly self-inflicted and not done by the witch of the waste #sophie curses herself because it is easier for her #but because she starts to see that she is important to people and others love her #she grows out of it and finally is able to stand up for others #and break her own curse #and get some fucking shit done #sophie is my hero and my gpoy always
In the book, Sophie possess a certain kind of magical power - she makes things real by saying them. She can lay spells just by saying them. When she made hats, and she told a hat that it would make a rich young man fall in love with it, a rich young man fell in love with the woman who bought it. When she told a hat it would make some woman look beautiful, everyone knew the mayor’s wife looked positively radiant in it. It’s what drew the Witch to her hat shop in the first place. When she cursed out a bucket of plant food, it turned to potent weed killer. When she told herself she might as well be an old woman, when she told herself she was doomed to fail, when she told herself she was plain and boring and no one would ever notice her, no one did.
When Howl tried to break the spell on Sophie, and he tried many times, he always failed. Not because his magic was less powerful than the Witch’s, but because it was less powerful than Sophie’s.

I just witnessed first hand one of the things that pisses me off more than anything.
I was at the grocery store and a woman who had her hair & nails done, fake eyelashes on, and name brand clothing, had her young son with her, who also had on name brand shoes & jacket, paid for her purchase with foodstamps and wic.
seriously? you can afford to look a certain way and have certain material things, but you’re getting food stamps and receiving help from wic? you’ve got to be kidding me. people need help, I get that. sometimes you go through a shitty time and need assistance, I get that too. but what I don’t get is how you have all this nice, name brand shit, hair done, nails & eyelashes on point, baby decked out in name brands…and you’re getting government assistance for basic ass needs such as food.
That’s funny, I just witnessed first hand one of the things that pisses ME off: People judging other people based solely on appearances, without knowing their backstories whatsoever!
(It was you. In this post.)
(Did you know poor people have all sorts of tips and tricks for getting their hair & nails to look professionally done without actually spending that much money? It’s true! You don’t have to actually go to a salon to get it done. Especially if your neighbor/cousin/aunt/friend is a stylist willing to do you a favor.
Did you also know that people donate name brand items to places like Goodwill, and with some hunting you can piece together some nice outfits like that?
Also did you know poor people sometimes - *gasp!* - receive presents from other people??? And sometimes they - *double gasp!* - used to not be poor and still own some stuff from before they hit hard times????
And did you know fake lashes can cost as low as a fucking dollar depending on where you go, and drugstore mascara is like $2 or $3???
Oh and did you ever give any thought whatsoever to the idea that poor people, on the whole, do their absolute best to hide their poverty from their children and get their children the nicest clothes/shoes/whatever possible in the hopes that they won’t know the shame of being poor?????)
To anyone who fucking questions me
I don’t get my nails done, I’d like to but my job doesn’t let me and I mostly can’t afford it so when I get a manicure I stretch that shit out as much as I can, I’m also a cosmetology student at a college, meaning I get to let my classmates try shit out on me.
Eyelashes are cheap, i can buy a 12 pack on ebay for like one dollar, and I also reuse them.
My hime hair pieces cost me over 130 dollars, I had to sell a piece from my wardrobe to afford them and with my two jobs I can afford to pay school bills and if I avoid going out and eating out like the rest of people, I can save that money to buy an outfit every couple of months.
I don’t really understand why someone in public would look at me at get angry because the way I look, they don’t fucking know me. They don’t know that everything other than the “brand” in my closet is from the goodwill, my suitcase is from the goodwill, my furniture is from the goodwill. I have so much shit because I’m literally afraid of having nothing, I have lived on the streets before and had nothing before so I want to make the best of what I got.
So OP can kiss my ass
I did my best to make this slideshow amusing, but also genuinely informative for people who were curious about D&D.
If you enjoyed this slideshow and you ship Johnlock, you might want to read On The Ice, which goes into greater detail about how an actual gaming session proceeds, and also features plenty of smut.
i should do this
I’ve played D&D for years, and this is honestly the easiest to understand guide I’ve ever seen
Okay but like this looks really fun? I am possibly ready to take a new level in dork-ness.
NO BUT SERIOUSLY my friends and I have been playing D&D for three or so years now and it is REALLY REALLY FUN and a really great way to spend a weekend with your mates hanging out and talking and making stories and it’s just awesome fuck the haters.
Oh man. One time I played an artificer who was basically Doc Brown from BTTF. I had a pneumatic sledgehammer that was powered by a tea kettle, and every time I electrocuted someone with my magical thunder-summoning powers I would yell “SCIENCE” at the top of my lungs.
I was also completely hammered on Goldschlager.
Suffice it to say that 1) that character was mad crazy overpowered (as it was a playtest version of the artificer that was totally broken) and 2) that gaming group swiftly passed a rule stating that I was neither allowed to drink Goldschlager nor say the word “science” unless it was as an answer to a question.
Those guys were dicks.
the bit about GURPS is kinda accurate as well. It’s basically a system that you can follow to the letter, just fuck the rules or anything in between.
I love it when Disney is educational and still funny.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY
