Do you believe in magic?...
Watching The 10th Kingdom now is so different from watching it when I was little.
This latest message reminded me of the fact that the links page hadn’t been updated in a while and I finally fixed that!
Contests links are fixed. Created links for fanart, fanfiction (had one ff under #fanfic and now it’s under #fanfiction) and Wolfinia (the only pairing I’ve tagged since very early)
Take a look and tell me if everything is working fine, will you?
I see… Well, sadly I’ve only read one or two one-shots. One was the only entry we got for our last contest, and it was about Virginia and Candy’s friendship.
There’s this almost empty tag: HERE
I don’t usually read fanfics. Mostly cuz I don’t have time or patience to read stuff online and so I never search for anything. I usually read fanfic when someone shows it to me or when it’s short/completed. Don’t you hate it when they’re not finished?
Anyway, I’ll let the other followers answer you on this case :)
You guys either send theswordofhuffepuff a message or send me links. It’s always a pleasure to help other Mirror Travelers finding new stuff to fangirl and fanboy over ;)
Hello! Thanks! :) I’m glad you like it.
Ah… You see, I don’t make gifs ^^’
You can, however, go to our links page and find a gif blog dedicated to 10th Kingdom! It’s Kingdom of Gifs. It hasn’t been updated in a while, but do drop a message ;)
And to any of our followers that do gifs and were looking for inspiration, you can always make these ideas :)
“Don’t worry, I’m not who I used to be. I’ve had extensive therapy. I realize I have been using food as a substitute for love and I have the books to prove it: “Breaking the Cycle”, “Heal Yourself in 7 Days”, “Stop Blaming Yourself, Please”, and “Help for the Bed wetting Child”, which I picked up by mistake. But I’ve got them all!”
Ok, so… How does one start one of these? Never mind, I just did XD
This is a bit of “why do I ship Captain Swan”. To answer that, I ship them because: a) Emma needs some LUV in her life. b) These two remind me so much of Wolfinia (Wolf x Virginia) from The 10th Kingdom, I can’t help but ship them. It’s a genetic problem. Incurable. c) for the same reasons Tricia ships them (I hope you don’t mind me calling you by your first name ^^’)
I’ll put this under a read more, it’s quite long. Sorry for that ^^’
Sorry for all the Snow White reblogs, but I saw those comments and thought they were important for you all to read :)
77. Having a plus-sized Snow White
Can we talk about this for a moment?
Snow White in the 10th Kingdom isn’t skinny. I repeat, a stereotypical ‘Disney Princess’ character isn’t skinny!
Most of the action takes place in the 4th Kingdom, in which the story of Snow White apparently took place. All through the story, you’ll hear mentions of Snow - the memorial prison is named after her, Wendell descended from her - and you start to imagine her as a beautiful benevolent Big Good.
…and then, the film takes your imagined idea of her and throws it out the window - because when her ghost finally appears in the series, she’s not a sprightly young woman! She’s getting on in her years, she’s not slim, but ohhh, she is beautiful.
Remember that our protagonists have been on the run like The Fugitive for most of the series - with Snow, no one is chasing Virginia, and the viewers finally feel safe and secure. She’s the Big Good of the series and she’s a great good character, full of warmth, kindness, and great advice - how can you not love that?
Great writing and an amazing actress went into proving that you don’t have to look like a Disney Princess to be a Princess, and that’s what I love.
If you look at the new I Am A Princess video, you’ll notice something glaring: no one in that video is overweight or older than 15. You can argue that the target demographic is young, and that we can’t promote obesity on tv, but that’s sending a terrible message to kids. So, what? Your moms, aunties and grandmothers can’t be the paragon of kindness and moral courage when they’re older? Disney also tends to make older people villains while giving us younger protagonists - forgetting that sometime the most unreasonable, cruel people in the world can be kids themselves (just look at Darla Dimple in Cats Don’t Dance). And, honestly, name me a single plus-sized human Disney protagonist - no one is ever fat. Is that video insinuating the chubby kid in your class can’t be a princess if they’re overweight? That’s not the right message to send to anyone.
I think this Snow White is the perfect message to kids - she’s a big beautiful woman who doesn’t fit society’s traditional idea of beauty, but doesn’t have to. You’ll love her and feel she’s amazing either way! She’s a real Princess, regardless of what Disney says.
This is one of the reasons I love this show so much; it is thanks to this that I’ve come to always see Snow White as being more of that gentle, motherly figure who will protect you from harm. It doesn’t help that her build is a lot like my mother’s, who will always be someone I look up to, even if I know she made mistakes in her life.
Love this so much.
