Today was transition day with my new class. We made a time capsule that we can open on the last day of term next year and lots of them wrote ‘having fun with our new teacher who loves stickers’ in the ‘looking forward to’ section of the worksheet. I may have gotten a tad too excited about the dinosaur and rocket stickers that I put on the time capsule box and I may have explained in too much detail why I thought they were awesome.
No, no DUDE. Ignore the movie (it’s crap) and get the books. I can’t recommend them enough. Okay, yeah, they think they’re brother and sister for a while but if that squicks you out, google it for spoilers on how that scenario works itself out.
THE BOOKS ARE BRILLIANT.
Also, they have openly gay characters who are treated as though -gasp- that’s not their defining characteristic but they get their romantic storylines, too. There’s an autistic character at one point who -gasp- is treated like a human being and his condition is acknowledged and accepted without stigmatization. There are strong female characters who have a sexuality that doesn’t define them and who acknowledge that while, yeah, they can kick demon ass, that’s not what makes them strong.
what you said was very sweet and means a lot to me but i am incapable of properly responding in any way besides “thank you so much aaaah” because i do not know how to accurately express the exact level of my gratitude to where you completely understand how much what you said meant to me without me getting even more emotional and looking like a fucking nerd: an autobiography
