Tony and his only friend, Dummy =(

#this is so sad but its my fave trope #mcu tony building his friends and torn between being so proud and so in love with his bot children #and so self-loathing bc ‘who else needs to do this why cant i just be normal’

Mother cat with kittens came to meet an old friend.

I can’t believe we’ve already found the best animal video of 2016.

That is too adorable. You can tell the mother cat actually does trust the dog just by her body language. Typically a mother will watch her kittens closely and be very protective of them, here she completely trusts the dog to play gentle with them. This is just too damn cute.

When he bops the kitten and looks up at Mom to make sure he didn’t overstep!

The dog is trying to make himself as non-threatening as possible!!

I scrolled past this ad and all I could think was, “wow, maybe you should do your laundry?”

They didn’t really think this through very well.

Okay. So there’s a theory out there about this movie that I’m going to throw out to you all. I’m not sure I agree with it, but at the same time, I’m not sure I don’t. It really makes a lot of sense if you think about it, but I fairly confident it was not a planned story by the creators of the movie. But it certainly fits. So here goes.

The Great Stone Dragon is featured three times in the movie: First, Mulan stands beside the statue when she sings about how she wishes her outside would match her inside, and that her actions and appearances were in line with her inner character. Second, Mulan sits on the base of the statue watching her father pass his final night before going off to war, it is here that she makes her decision to take his place. And the third time is when the ancestors attempt – and fail – to awaken the spirit.

So why does the statue crumble? Because it’s empty. Because the spirit of the Great Stone Dragon has already awakened and given Mulan the strength she needed to make her decision and go to war in her father’s stead. Mulan woke the dragon (calm down, Viserys) when she sang ‘Reflection’ beside him, and he gave her his spirit when she sat in the rain watching her father, passing to her all of the strength of the Great Stone Dragon. So when the ancestors try to wake him, he’s already gone.

Anyway that’s the theory. As I said, I don’t know that I buy into it, but it certainly makes a lot of sense. 

My childhood just got more beautiful

I’d always wondered why it didn’t work! Honestly this theory makes perfect sense. The spirit wasn’t there to talk her OUT of going to war, it was there to give her the strength and courage to do it in the first place.

And it means that the statue wasn’t a DUD, the ancestors just didn’t understand how it worked.

so you’re saying Mulan has the literal spirit of a dragon

Asking the tough questions, huh? xD

I can’t say that I’ve ever really thought about it, but the colony loves showers, and while it wouldn’t have understood the concept of laundry from the get-go, I think it would figure it out really quickly. Honestly, the first time someone did laundry with a tentacle around their waist and the colony realized that blankets come out of the dryer soft and warm???, it would be all over that. I’m now imagining the laundry room invaded constantly by a dozen tentacles just doing laundry all the time. 

(In this ‘verse, cleaning staff are outlawed on Avengers turf and the Avengers do their own cleaning anyway, so I think this works. ^_~)
