WELL I LOVE THIS A LOT.
I like this video because I march euphonium in SCV but I can also casually toss a pretty clean sabre 8
You stop that right now.
Chris…the fuck bro
Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
thank you, history side of tumblr.
He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.
Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.
Thank you medical side of tumblr
And I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment.

When you’re on the field, nothing else matters, the world quiets. All that exists is you, and those around you, pouring out your hearts together and making something beautiful.
In which Rose is a realistic companion/character
So fucking realistic.
Doctor Who has a difficult job as a show, because it’s got to write all of these women who are smart enough to save the day when it’s required, but silly enough to jump into a time machine with a stranger. And with each companion they’ve got to work around that contradiction somehow. Some of the companions just don’t get a choice (Tegan, Donna); some of them are intelligent but really impulsive and reckless (Amy). And Rose is fabulous because the narrative allows her to make some stupid decisions without writing her off as unintelligent on the whole.
She’s neither the Bimbo (who does stupid stuff and needs other people to bail her out) or the Smart Woman Who Is Feminist And Strong and never makes any mistakes. It would have been easy to have her be the airhead who follows the Doctor around without thinking, or the Sassy Smart Woman who…also inexplicably follows the Doctor around without thinking. But instead, Rose is realistically good with some mental skills and bad with others; she’s intelligent but she’s flawed. Rose’s intelligence is in the form of her being perceptive and analysing her surroundings—like when she notices that the Earth looks the same in the future as it does in the present, and that shouldn’t be the case due to continental drift (which is also from this episode.) Or, when she realises that they could hide in the cupboard to avoid being blown up. So rather than being lazy and writing her as either dumb or “dumb when it suits the story and smart when it doesn’t”, she’s consistently perceptive but she has this flaw…
Rose isn’t over-endowed with the ability to be objective and rational in a situation. That’s a combination of her trusting nature and her spontaneity. So a guy on the internet says he’s just a nice man with a wife and kids, and so she automatically believes him and thinks it’s a silly fuss over nothing for Mickey to want to keep an eye out. The Doctor says he’s got a time machine and she’s interested, so she hops on. Her rationality kicks in after the fact, because her first instincts are to act on her sympathy and liking for people. Her capacity for acting spontaneously based on compassion is a strength and a weakness (as shown in Dalek, and Father’s Day). But most importantly, it’s a consistent trait in a detailed character.
