This is, once again, my heroine for the novel I’ve been working on, made by my lovely Korean student, Ariel. It was inspired by Drei’s (http://aegisdea.tumblr.com/) first illustration of my character. I just thought I’d post it here now.
Ariel is still practicing her drawing skills, and she’s a little new in Tumblr world, but please do check out her Tumblr: http://ha-nha.tumblr.com/ She’s just starting filling it with posts. Also, check out her Naver for more of her drawings: http://blog.naver.com/o_ohello9942
She also loves anime and Animated Disney movies. ^^
Libulan in myths of Visayas is portrayed as a male, but some say the moon is the female aspect of the sun.
Libulan’s is considered as androgynous. Among the three sons of Lihanging and Lidagat, he is the only one with the slender frame despite the fact that his body is made out of copper. He is eccentric and more effeminate than his brothers. He is graceful, timid and shy. He is very moody, thus the phases of the moon.
Libulan’s patronage is observed by cross-dressing Babaylan men (priests); most of their activities lean more to the feminine side; such as cooking, sewing, cleaning the house..etc
casual reminder that Elle Woods scored a 179 on the LSAT, which is one point shy of a perfect score.
Casual reminder that Whatshisface here had family connections and was a legacy and shit, whereas Elle Woods came out of nowhere.
casual reminder that Elle Woods actually had an amazing background in real life issues that people dismissed as unimportant but managed to not only learn the law, but learned how to apply the law.
Casual reminder that Elle Woods used her lawyer skills to save a woman from an abusive relationship and also save another woman from trumped up murder charges and basically what I’m saying is you go, girl, go get ‘em Elle Woods, thank you for this movie.
what’s fantastic about this movie is that it’s not that fucked up brand of feminism where the girls who arent like other girls and sip tea and read hemingway look down on the blonde party sluts. the message of the movie is like, you can be blonde and attractive AND enjoy stuff like shopping and partying and you can still be smart and kick ass!!!
I LOVE EVERYTHING IN THIS POST
Let’s also note that in this movie, when Elle Woods gets to Harvard and everyone is either excluding her or judging her for her apparent lack of intelligence, she does the same damned thing she did to get there: she works her ass off to show them that no matter what the fuck they think, she earned her spot in class and she’ll keep earning it. “I’ll show you how valuable Elle Woods can be,” and then she fucking does. Every time she’s humiliated or made to feel less than, Elle puts her head down and barrels forward, and the one time it seems insurmountable, the time a man she respected, who she thought valued her brain beforetits and ass, tells her that her brain is not enough, she’s reminded (BY A BADASS LADY LAW PROFESSOR, LET’S NOT FORGET) that she’s Elle Fucking Woods and she’s not one to let one stupid prick ruin her life, which is like the manifesto of the entire movie: no matter what men think Elle Woods is, she is not just that one thing.
