Ok, finally doing an about me.
Female girl thing, white cishet American Christian.
I have a tendency to spam random fandoms no one cares about a lot when I get bored or can't sleep, so you are warned.
If there's ever anything you want me to tag so you don't have to look at the fandoms you hate, just tell me, I won't get mad.
OTPs in order are 1)Smellershot 2) Rumbelle 3)Mike and Amber Warner
otakusapien is my twin btw, apparently people follow us both a lot and don't know for a long time cuz we don't say anything.
I'm not gonna list all my ships and fandoms cuz it would take way too long.
Is that it? Am I done now?

Day #6: Your favorite animal
Definitely Kala. I don’t know if this meant non-talking animals, but whatever. And yes, I am picking her over the entire cast of The Lion King.
She’s a loving mother, brave, tough, caring, strong, nurturing, gentle, supportive, understanding- her biggest flaw is not telling Tarzan he was adopted. Which was kind of obvious.
She wants to keep Tarzan so much she stands up to her mate, who is scary even in a Disney cartoon. She really cares for her son, even though they’re so different.
Okay, imagine it like this- what if Tarzan were the black kid and the rest of the community were racist southern white people. This kid is foreing to them. It’s obviously not one of them, it could be dangerous or have diseases (remember, we’re racists right now). The leader knows it’s just a replacement for his kid and has rejected it. The leader has now rejected this totally different kid and you have no idea where he came from, but he causes problems with his weirdness. (leaving the race bit out, Tarzan does make more trouble than the averge gorilla, but a black kid in the racist south would probably get in trouble more because he was black and people pinned the blame on him, not because he actually was causing more trouble than the other kids).
After getting in huge trouble, being rejected, again, by his “father” and the whole community, Tarzan has a breakdown. Kala finds him and calmly gets him to see things her way and cheer him up in a sincerely touching and heartfelt scene. She shows him how even though they’re so different, they have so much in common. Their hands, their eyes, their heartbeats. In one scene Kala gets to her kid like that without ever raising her voice or ignoring him or his feelings like a lot of parents would.
(Sorry if I went overboard with the racial comparisons, I just finished reading The Help a couple weeks ago. Second place goes to Mufasa.)
