Jack Frost is the Guardian of Fun, a 300+ year-old winter spirit prone to mischief, mistakes, and occasional heroics. This particular Jack is from the Guardian of Screwing Up series of fanfics, which means he's prone to losing his shirt, making Bunny lose something spelled almost like "shirt," and having life-changing field trips with African spider myths.
Fair warning: This is just an ask journal, I don't really do RP. And while I do asks still, it's only occasionally. Mostly, I post things like ROTG gifs and canon discussions. I also post a little bit from other Dreamworks movies and general animation. So you might find stuff from:
- The Croods
- Gravity Falls
- general stuff about fandom/writing.
My normal tumblr can be found here. Over there, I mostly post social justice stuff, random funny posts, and live action fandoms there. Feel free to follow, I follow back!
Helllooo, I just want to apologize for the lack of attention I’ve paid to this blog and the lack of updates to the fic. Truth be told, I’ve been a little lost and disorganized with Kate at boot camp since she usually keeps me on track with stuff.
BUT GOOD NEWS EVERYBODY!
My badass best buddy @themightyglamazon just graduated from Coast Guard boot camp as a freshly minted Coast Guard Seaman and will be settling into her new billet after her leave. It’s a nice post with a regular schedule and a timezone difference that gives us chill time at the same time in the evening so we should be able to get back to writing soon.
The reason I got mad was because so many ignorant people like you keep posting shit about how Croods had it’s negatives.
Now I’m just sitting over here going did you people pay any attention at all to this movie about the point of love and living? To live life to it’s fullest and stick with those who love and care about you?
But no, you have to complain about the fact that there is no armpit hair on a character.
Or that they look Caucasian
Or that they simply just look cartoony…
I realize every movie has it’s negatives, but it really bothers me when they keep complaining about it over and over and over…
When they don’t even know the reason why they don’t have armpit hair in the first place. Maybe the creators were paying too much attention to the actual movie than petty things like armpit hair.
Why not pay attention to the colors, the environment, get sucked into the story.
I mean COME ON.
I don’t see people complaining about Frozen not having arm hair, or having barbie figures while the men have proportionate bodies.
For once, could people like you appreciate a movie that was probably worked on even more than a ‘classic’ Disney film.
DreamWorks gets so much criticism while Disney is praised because they are so well known around possibly the PLANET.
Doesn’t that sound a little unfair?
Okay so I don’t have any huge opinions on which should have won. I liked both movies well enough. I guess my preference is the Croods because I actually didn’t know what was going to happen (Disney’s predictable, you knew everyone would get a happy ending and Anna’s fake “death” didn’t hit me at all when I knew she’d get better five seconds later.) Disney tossed us some surprises there with you know who but it was by subverting their own sexist and crappy tropes that they’ve used a million times so I was impressed but not that impressed when they were responsible for those cliches in the first place.
Also I liked the Croods better because visually it was a much more creative and interesting looking world.
But hey, I can see why people liked Frozen so much and a lot of it was well crafted. The ice effects were great, the sister story was good.
But anyone who likes Disney princess movies has pretty much instantly invalidated their right to complain about any unrealistic body features in the Croods unless they happen to be complaining about them in both movies. And even then, The Croods was leagues better at having non-standard female body types.
If you’re going to complain about unrealistic female body features in one movie to try to invoke it as better than another movie, you’d best make sure that first movie you’re talking about isn’t a Disney princess movie. They’re one of the major studios responsible for those unrealistic standards in the first place. And they get ‘em in at that perfect early age where kids are building their self esteem.
