just to clarify i don’t have critical thinking and if i support a fictional murderer that means i also condone murder irl
in httyd when gobber says “the dragon will always go for the kill” and it shows hiccup at the place where toothless spared him as he goes, “so why didn’t you?”, and later on when hiccup says he should’ve just killed toothless, that it would’ve been better for everyone, astrid asks “the rest of us would’ve done it. so why didn’t you?” and hiccup says that he saw himself in toothless, and that’s why hiccup spared him. so good. incredible. i ate that shit up like a wild rat
one of my favourite things about tumblr is how it’s all lovingly handpicked. there’s no algorithm forcing things onto your feed, but instead long chains of mutuals and followers passing posts around simply because they liked it and ooh, maybe you might like it too. the entire website runs on people’s sheer love of other people’s posts and it’s probably the best thing about this website. at least it’s definitely the reason that this place feels more like a community than any other social media.
