Special Gifts Chapter Fifteen

CHAPTER FIFTEEN

I hadn’t ever imagined that doing the dragon equivalent of howling at Gmot could be comforting, but it was. While the rest of the village held their pyre and moved to the Great Hall for lots and lots of beer drinking and feasting—or as much as we could risk with a possible famine on the horizon—I spent a few hours mourning in my own way, releasing human tears and dragon wails together.

x-cessive-bastard:

I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.

Tired of sexy glamorous villains

More villains who are tedious, shallow, ignorant, banal, distasteful, and instead of (or maybe in addition to) making us see the appeal of the dark side, they exemplify the banality, the pettyness, and the cruelty of evil.

Real evil is boring, unimaginative, and only occasionally has decent fashion sense.

Korra book 3 finale.
I think I forgot how to breathe a few times. Studio Mir did some absolutely awesome, gorgeous work. Thank you whole Korra crew!!!

I like this GIF as the sequel to my last post. I also love how buff Korra looks in that incredible animation. THAT is how she is supposed to look in every shot.
Thank you, Johane! I would also like to give a huge thanks to the Korra crews at Nick in Burbank, and in Seoul at Studio Mir and Studio Reve for a stellar season and finale. And thank you to the fans! Thanks for sticking with this show after the bumpy ride in Book 2, and the hide-and-seek network shenanigans this summer. Keep cursing the Bryke for making you feel the feels and smell the real poop. We’ll be back with Book 4 as soon as possible. Hopefully it won’t be released only on smartwatches or some other inane platform.
Love, Bryan
P.S. My umbrella term “in Burbank” failed to cover all the amazing crew members in greater LA, particularly Jeremy Zuckerman and his epic score, Benjamin Wynn for his sound design maelstrom, Aran Tanchum and Vinny Quisetti for their top-notch foley work, all of our martial arts consultants, and many others in our post production process around town. It takes a village!

I’m reblogging this again because it’s super rad that an animation studio isn’t afraid to animate women and girls in un(traditionally) attractive ways. I could rant all night about how kick-ass Korra is and all of the female characters in this show, in their own way. But I’m tired and I need to sleep. maybe some other time…

Special Gifts Chapter Nine

CHAPTER NINE

I spent the rest of the night in my shop, trying to think up ways of getting Toothless back in the air—ways to make that prosthetic fin open and close like the real one. My first idea was a rope, but where would I tie the other end? His leg? He needed that for take off, and to land, and for clawing things that were hopefully fish and not people.
