what this made me realise is that helen’s certainty implies that dash and violet were both showing signs of their powers as infants and that is the funniest thing i have ever thought of in my life because one has super speed and one turns invisible can you picture first-time parents trying to deal with a baby that sometimes fucking disappears
I brought this up to my parents at dinner when we were talking about the movie and my mom simply said, “Samantha, you know movies aren’t real, right?”
Like I had thought too much about this. And that’s when I realized Tumblr rules, my parents drool.
I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE RESPOND TO FILM/BOOK/TV DISCUSSION LIKE THAT.
Like, “Oh, really? I had no idea that this Pixar computer-animated cartoon about a family of super heroes isn’t real life. Thank you for correcting me.”
Excuuuuuse me for having an imagination. Excuuuuuuse me for seeing the applicable social/life lessons and symbolism. Excuuuuuuse me for wanting to discuss other potential scenarios and how they might play out. Excuuuuuuse me for wanting to debate what something means.
Just because something isn’t real doesn’t mean it’s not worth discussing, or can’t be funny, depressing, inspiring or terrifying.
When people say shit like that, it makes me think they aren’t capable of abstract thought.
"I don’t get why you like all that weird stuff." Well sorry that I might enjoy wondering how the human race would react during a zombie apocalypse. Pardon me for wondering how many people around me would actually be good after all the social constructs around them are gone. Pardon me for wondering how famous people in history would react if a blue box showed up out of nowhere and a man with no real name stepped out and started running around with you. Oh just ignore me if I discuss something I enjoyed reading/watching while I put up with you telling me the same story from your childhood again.
I snorted out loud at your last sentence.
