This is mildly spoilery if you haven't seen Frozen yet. (The two biggest plot twists I am saying absolutely nothing about, but there's still some mild spoilers so if you haven't seen it yet, drop everything you're doing and go watch it, then come back here. )
I remember more than a year ago, I pondered on Disney's then-upcoming Frozen, and why I was both extremely nervous/worried they would screw it up, and at the same time just a little hopeful that maybe the decisions they made to alter the story would end up working out. As it turned out, almost every single potential "this could end up working out" thought that I had turned out to be correct. And they did one better. This movie is fantastic.
So Frozen is rather decidedly not "The Snow Queen", but while not an "adaptation" in the proper sense, it still kept intact the element of the story that for me, was always the most important.
In the fairytale, Gerda and Kai are very

Okay, so I just received a note on the Hetards admin page from :iconcaptainjellyroll: about a notorious USUK basher that has been stalking USUK fans and attacking them as of late.
Now, I myself personally know this basher because she used to attack me relentlessly for days on end. Jelly asked me to make a journal to warn others about this, so that is what I am going to do.
I used to like USUK a lot but that was only for about a year (not until I discovered my avid love for Naruto and SasuNaru (they should fucking have sex already Goddamn)). I am, and have always been (in the bottom of my heart) a SasuNaru fangirl, but back when I was about 16, I shipped USUK like I was sailing the Armada. It was my first OTP (still is) and I loved it. I faved everything USUK and eventually got my inspiration to create my soldier based story "War Effort" .

Robin's Pants PSAAs you might know, my comic's protagonist is fairly androgynous--Professor Birch asks "are you a boy or a girl?" because he literally can't tell. (He then labels Robin a 'borl' and moves on without ever getting a real answer.) Unfortunately, Robin's ambiguous appearance has caused a lot of ignorant, bigoted attitudes to come crawling out of the woodwork. Please be warned that from now on, I will call you out if I find you leaving cissexist or transphobic comments or jokes on my comic. This really isn't a big deal... I'm not going to start publicly shaming anyone, I will just start pointing out any problematic comments that pop up instead of letting them 'slide'.More Like This
Basically, if your joke boils down to, "having a nonstandard/hard-to-determine sex/gender is so abnormal and freaky, haha!" then I will call you on it. If your joke hinges on making fun of gender pronouns or using 'it' jokingly, then I will call you on it. If you talk about what sex/gender a person
