Man, I love that one Disney movie

That opens up with chanting in a different language

image

image

With the royal family

image

image

And the adorable children

image

image

And the tragic death(s)

image

image

And then our hero runs away

image

image

And sings a really catchy song about being free

image

image

Without realizing that the kingdom is in ruins

image

image

And is being ruled by a villain who wants to be king

image

image

A villain who is really good at causing guilt trips

image

image

image

image

And so our hero goes back

image

image

And they all live happily ever after

image

It’s such a great movie

Part of the story telling is actually not that uncommon. It’s actually a relatively popular story telling type called Roman New Comedies (Rom-Coms/Domestic Comedies). The structure goes that you start with the status quo, then there’s a social disruption that causes all of the problems, this then causes some obstacles that your hero has to overcome, these lead your hero to have a realization of what it is they are meant to do, then they go out and restore the order of power, which leads us full circle back to the status quo.

And then there’s the stock characters: The young lovers(Heirs): self explanatory Simba and Nala; Anna and Kristoff, Sennex/Old man: older character who doesn’t want the young lovers to be together Scar/Weselton, the cunning slave/sidekick: comedic relief Timon and pumba; Olaf and Sven, the Matriarch: kinda like the leader of everyone Mufasa/Elsa and Anna’s parents, the parasite: a character who serves no real purpose other than to leech of others Hyenas/Hans.

This isn’t meant to be exact and you can reason differently for each of the stock characters, but regardless you can see that it does follow a similar pattern.

You Cannot Rest Here

feelinranty:

meeplol:

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

I do.

Don’t you fuckin do this to me

Crappy lyricstuck because I’ve had this silly edited clip of “Court of Miracles” on my computer for way too long. c: Not meant to be anything super quality. Sometimes you just feel like drawing some human!stuck makaras (and Meulin because every evil cult needs a sexy priestess).

“In fairy tales, monsters exist to be a manifestation of something that we need to understand, not only a problem we need to overcome, but also they need to represent, much like angels represent the beautiful, pure, eternal side of the human spirit, monsters need to represent a more tangible, more mortal side of being human: aging, decay, darkness and so forth. And I believe that monsters originally, when we were cavemen and you know, sitting around a fire, we needed to explain the birth of the sun and the death of the moon and the phases of the moon and rain and thunder. And we invented creatures that made sense of the world: a serpent that ate the sun, a creature that ate the moon, a man in the moon living there, things like that. And as we became more and more sophisticated and created sort of a social structure, the real enigmas started not to be outside. The rain and the thunder were logical now. But the real enigmas became social. All those impulses that we were repressing: cannibalism, murder, these things needed an explanation. The sex drive, the need to hunt, the need to kill, these things then became personified in monsters. Werewolves, vampires, ogres, this and that. I feel that monsters are here in our world to help us understand it. They are an essential part of a fable.” Guillermo Del Toro (via iwearthecheeseyo)
