Full Confession: I want to share with you something that happened to me that has only convinced me more just how real the Guardians are, Jack especially and specifically. Tuesday marked the 5th year ‘anniversary’ of my parent’s divorce. It was a really bad split and I felt like shit. I was having a bad day. When my mom got us all together to talk/pray together, I kind of burst into tears and went up into my room. I cried for a while and I started talking to Jack Frost. It’s always been therapeutic for me to talk to my favorite fictional characters, ever since I was nine (when the divorce happened). When I was done, I heard three footsteps, as if someone was crossing across the room. But it got even better today. My siblings have never gotten along very well, and so they end up bickering a lot and I wasn’t handling it very well. I ran outside, started crying again. I just needed to sit by myself. So I started talking to Jack again. And the wind kept blowing around me and I felt like he was trying to comfort me. So I quietly said thank you. And a few snowflakes flew past my vision. (It’s still snowing as I write this; it’s not too uncommon for it to snow in Minnesota, even if it’s April). And to my amazement, it started to snow. I felt like he was there. I felt like he was comforting me and telling me things would be okay. This happiness burst inside of me and I cried even harder and said thank you over and over. Before I went back inside, the wind was flowing around me again, as if hugging me. I believe that Jack Frost is real, and these experiences have only confirmed my suspicions. Rise of the Guardians has made a believer out of me, and I just had to share this with everyone and say again, thank you, Jack. I’ll miss you when winter ends
With /post/52513650871/, The part where Toothiana’s punch was “not necessary,” I beg to differ. Like how Jack’s sister was taken from him, & how Pitch’s daughter was taken from him, the fairies were taken from her. Those fairies come from her, like babies from mothers. So her punch was completely justified. I’m not hating, but when the phrase “which was not necessary” was thrown in; it showed me this confessor was blind to see all the characters’ motives for their actions.
I knew there was a reason why Jack chose to bond with Jamie over all the other Burgess children. Jamie is the most open to believing in new things. Not only that, but they share the exact same family structure: both are sons in their family, guardians to their little sisters, love their mothers and don’t appear to have fathers.
I always feel guilty when Tooth says, “They don’t believe in me anymore.” Because she was the only one I really believed in for a decent length of time, and I remember when I stopped. I can’t help feeling like I let her down whenever I see the look on her face.
I’d never heard of the Sandman when I was little. It was everyone but Sandy.
To be honest, I really thought I wouldn’t like the movie. I tend to get a little too obsessed with fandoms and leave my old ones easily and come back a year later. I was really nervous about seeing this one, so I just ignored its release. The trailer didn’t exactly look OUTSTANDING to me either. But once I got around to seeing it… oh man… Bunnymund and Santa… I love this fandom too. Everyone seems so nice (for now at least)
Please like this post or send a message if you’re interested in helping to organize BROTP Week!
(No seriously. I need help from someone who wants to help because I am nowhere near capable enough to do it entirely on my own.)
Yay, more weekly specials. I would like to volunteer, but I gotta think of something…. Those who want to help or want to make this thing. Single boost, suggest stuff by sending messages, and mark your calendars:3
Full Confession: I actually don’t like the theory of those other kids in the flashback being Jack’s siblings along with Emma. Why weren’t they invited to go ice-skating with the other two? I would feel Jack would bring them all along and have fun with all of them, instead of picking favorites and only bringing Emma. Sure, he could have just chosen to bring her to maybe teach her how to skate, but he’d probably let the others tag along and skate while he tutored Emma. Plus I’d feel that his mom would also insist on all of them enjoying the time, before winter ends and the lake melts. I only saw the kids as friends of Emma or maybe even their cousins or something. I like the idea of Jack having one younger sibling. To me, it increases their sibling love for each other, and increases the importance of Jack saving the last descendant of the Overland family tree, linking all the way to Jamie and Sophie. I don’t know, something just doesn’t settle right inside me knowing about this rumor or fact… :|
