Gravity Falls; Sock Opera Rough Designs

Sorry for the delay, back from vacation.
Somebody figured out that Bipper in the Reverend outfit was inspired by Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter. That’s my favorite movie and a big influence on many artist I know. There are other secrets hidden in the designs though…

I recently watched this movie for the first time & it was so good & I rly liked it & everyone should watch it!

But something about it really struck at my heart (or my feelz.. Idk) …Like idk if it was because the main characters are orphans or something but I wanted to cry a lot because it genuinely made me feel sad.

I think maybe cause I love kids & I wish children around the world didn’t have to suffer & fend for themselves ~ idk I’m getting too emotional ~ 😞

Anywho really great film! Probably a new favorite! Thank you wnslw for telling me to watch it! 😘💖

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
