I think it’d be rather exciting to meet a pirate.
#pirates of the caribbean was kind of a formative influence#and nothing about these movies so much as her—snarling selfish sea-hungry pirate king#sometimes I rewatch the first movie and laugh to myself about how little it understood her and will; how it tried to convince us#that will was the pirate because he was chasing after her; and pirates are obsessed with treasure#when elizabeth spends the first movie chasing freedom and the next two chasing him; chasing her freedom; chasing war; chasing the world#her wedding was interrupted and she held the man responsible at gunpoint until he gave her letters of pardon#she was mistaken for a sea goddess and accepted it without question; she led an army to war as though it were her due#and she did it all without ever apologizing for the lives she takes or the lies she tells and when she betrays sparrow with a kiss#he hisses ”pirate” because what else could she beI think Elizabeth Swan (Turner) is arguably one of the best female film characters of the last twenty years or so. She’s up there with Riley from the Alien franchise for me.

CATS: NEVER NOT DICKS
#it’s comforting to know that as technology advances our lives are similar in core ways #like I imagine someday we’ll explore the universe in starships like in Star Trek #and they’ll try to hail an alien craft #and the aliens will get a comm screen full of cat butt and the communications officer will be all SHITSHITSHIT CAPTAIN GET SGT FLUFFERS AWAY FROM THE COMM #and the alien captain will laugh and explain that some small pet creature from their planet is much the same #and that’s how peace happens
These tags warm my heart.
