I think Hiccup and Astrid are the best animated couple ever.
I love how their relationship isn’t a major plot point for the films. Astrid isn’t there as a reward for the hero, she is also his best friend (next to Toothless of course). She didn’t stop being a warrior after she became a love interest (and Hiccup wouldn’t want her to, he loves her for it).
They talk about their problems. They fight their enemies together. And they trust each other.
Something that I’m just noticing from these gifs. They actually lean their cheeks into the kisses, opposed to just letting the other do all the work. That’s something actual couples do when they know each other well enough to know it’s coming. I love this.
can she just get an award or something
I reblog this whenever it pops up on my dash.
So many directions she could have gone with this joke…out of infinite possibilities…she picked the best possible direction.

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)
OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.
Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.
Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.
Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”
Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).
Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.
Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.
Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
CECILIA PAYNE. I won’t forget.
My name is Fobazi, and I live in the great state of New Jersey, and I just finished graduated from Rutgers University. For the past two years, I have pursued a Masters in Library Science, and I recently got a full-time job.
But the job doesn’t start until after Labor Day. So my immediate need is for funds to move out of my house.
Right now I live with my mother. She makes home a very unsafe place for me to live. She is an extremely conservative Christian and a pastor and constantly derides my “choice” in sexuality. On top of that, she constantly takes all of my savings.
At this moment, I have less than $50 to my name because my mom found my hidden savings. My job doesn’t start until after labor day and I wasn’t able to work this summer due to immobility.
So with this, I am asking for the kindness of others to help me save up $2400 to pay the security deposit on an apartment.
All money donated will go towards a savings account I am setting aside explicitly to save for an apartment. Any extra funds past my goal will be put towards othernecessities.
Any and all reblogs or signal boosts are super duper appreciated!
Please help! Fobazi is great people!
I’m listening to the Les Mis DVD start screen which is playing an exerpt of “song of angry men” song and I’m literally getting goosebumps every time it starts again (like every minute and a half).
