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)

I love how Korra tries to hug Toph but Toph is just like “access denied.”
Or; scary ass animals we should be glad about being dead.
Here’s a bunch of ‘em.
Let’s just go ahead and call it a giant sloth, because that’s basically what it is. These were the ancestors of the ground sloths, which are, very likely, the ancestors of…
Cedric Diggory tried to call off the entire Quidditch game and get a re-match when he caught the snitch after Harry fell off his broom
And it was a Hufflepuff who…
Iconic Disney characters gender bended.
Ariel, Cruella, Maleficent, Pocahantas, Elsa, Ursula, Aurora, and Snow White as guys. Hades and Jack Frost as girls.
I want you to imagine a ten year old version of yourself sitting right there on this couch. Now this is the little girl who first believed that she was fat, and ugly, and an embarrassment.
This is groundbreaking
this is my third time rebloging this today. this is so important.
I watched this episode on 4od last night. I HAD SNOT BUBBLES COMING OUT OF MY NOSE, and I looked like a blooming panda after this scene…
