21. For some stupid reason, I decided that I was going to be a hockey fan. Wild. Penguins. Hawks (when they aren't playing my team in the playoffs).
I’m not the girl your mother warns you about.
I won’t kiss your best friend or break your heart.
I won’t make you choose between what you love to do & me.
I’m not cold. I’m not reckless.
I’m the girl your father mentions when your mom’s not around.
I’m the girl that gets away.
I will love you more than anything.
I will kiss you when you cry.
I will stand by your side until you decide otherwise.
And you’re just like your father, so you will.
You’ll let me go & I won’t look back,
But you will.
I promise you, you will.
I’m that girl."
remember when you put your glasses on for the first time and you realized you could see leaves on trees
how many fucking people on this website wear glasses jfc
it’s always the leaves oh my god
Yup, third grade. Up ‘til then, EVERYTHING looked like a Monet.
And Littlefoot knew for certain that he was alone.
#second saddest scene in the movie #honestly i found this movie to be way sadder than say the lion king or bambi #because of this scene and the ones around it #while the other two movies just kind of glanced over the child’s reaction to their parent’s death #the land before time spends quite a lot of time focusing on littlefoot right after his mother died #and how much he struggled with the loss #and it’s extremely painful to watch as this small child #goes through the different phases of grief #blaming his mother #not eating #being in down right denial #and then this scene #this freaking scene #when he finally realizes and accepts that she is gone for good #it is much more powerful than any scene in the lion king or bambi #littlefoot’s mother is THE saddest death in animated movies for me#and i will fight you over this #because while the death itself is quite sad #it’s the aftermath that makes it memorable (via benvoliotheorphan)
Bambi and Lion King immediately tried to distract children from the deaths of the parents. Bambi had the sweet little birds come flying in, and singers coming in to sing about them. Lion King, while they showed Simba running away, Scar ascending the throne, we can’t focus on that TOO much so let’s throw in a wacky, zany song by two new characters who sing about forgetting your worries! No, quick, jingle the shiny keys in the sad child’s face before they get too sad about the dead characters!
But Don Bluth and his team brought a movie that showed actual stages of grief with this little dinosaur and it is powerful to this day.
