So… You know the whole dragons kidnap virgin princesses and all that?
What if they kidnapped them to protect them from man?
What if they taught them out to be dragons and how to fight back against knights who only saw them as prizes?
What if dragons aren’t born? Buy rather they’re taught.
All dragons are princesses who learned this and became so much more.

i reblog this every single time
this is my favorite post on this whole website
Fun fact: (genetic) men see fewer shades of red than (genetic) women do because the gene that allows for the color perception of red exists only on the X chromosome, so women have twice the red-perception powers. The theory is, because women were typically gatherers, they needed to be able to tell the difference between poisonous berries and non-poisonous ones based on their color. (source)
So, to a man, something may appear to be simply red. But to a woman, it can be ruby, brick, rust, maroon, crimson… or blood orange.
Probably my favorite thing about Bob’s Burgers is that they don’t do that thing where the characters try to one-up each other with an endless barrage of jokes? No, the characters react like actual people instead. They actually laugh or chuckle when somebody says something actually funny and/or weird. They stop mid-sentence. They do double-takes. And it all feels so very natural, because that is exactly what common people do. And that is such a refreshing change of pace, when you consider the fact that the norm in these things is to have jokes relentlessly thrown at you at break-necking speed.
also the comedy doesn’t rely on the parents hating and berating eachother idk i love that
it shows how you don’t need to be offensive to be funny
general banter is the best way to write dialogue
someone mentioned april fools today, and it reminded me that last year a couple of radio DJs got taken off the air and almost faced felony charges because they told their audience that the local water supply was contaminated with “Dihydrogen Monoxide” and alot of people panicked
Dihydrogen - (two hydrogen)
Monoxide - (one oxygen)
some guys almost got arrested for telling people there was water in their taps.
My dad said that Supernatural was unrealistic because Sam and Dean (mostly Dean) have the demeanor and personalities of people who curse a lot. This is why we need a movie. Or more episodes like this.
