” Sophie , you’re beautiful! “
#no but like #you don’t understand how important and meaningful sophie’s arc in this movie is #she starts out hating herself because she believes herself to be ugly and dumb#then she’s turned into an old hag and promptly loses most of her insecurities because she no longer has to care about being beautiful #then we find out the curse weakens whenever she is being strong and it shows her real self underneath #which means the curse is mostly self-inflicted and not done by the witch of the waste #sophie curses herself because it is easier for her #but because she starts to see that she is important to people and others love her #she grows out of it and finally is able to stand up for others #and break her own curse #and get some fucking shit done #sophie is my hero and my gpoy always
In the book, Sophie possess a certain kind of magical power - she makes things real by saying them. She can lay spells just by saying them. When she made hats, and she told a hat that it would make a rich young man fall in love with it, a rich young man fell in love with the woman who bought it. When she told a hat it would make some woman look beautiful, everyone knew the mayor’s wife looked positively radiant in it. It’s what drew the Witch to her hat shop in the first place. When she cursed out a bucket of plant food, it turned to potent weed killer. When she told herself she might as well be an old woman, when she told herself she was doomed to fail, when she told herself she was plain and boring and no one would ever notice her, no one did.
When Howl tried to break the spell on Sophie, and he tried many times, he always failed. Not because his magic was less powerful than the Witch’s, but because it was less powerful than Sophie’s.
One of my all time favorite books/movies in the world!

SIGNAL BOOST THIS SHIT
YES THERE ARE MINORS ON HERE ALSO I JUST CHECKED ME AND IT HAS MY ~PERSONAL~ INFO ON THERE
This is very concerning. I just spent the last ten minutes removing my entire family (including my 14-year-old sister) from the site.
Cool Mom Tech has a guide on how to take your information off the site if for some reason you can’t watch the above video.
Just to inform everyone, it’s American only, but it’s real. I’ve found 3 of my friends already with this sight and the only reason I knew it was them was because I happen to have their address. PLEASE CONFIRM IF YOU ARE ON THIS SITE AND IF YOU ARE, REMOVE YOURSELF. NOW.
I’m screaming internally because I just searched up a handful of my friends who live in America.. and found every single one of them without fail. This is scary.
For my American followers
This is creepy as hell and completely legit. Please take the time to remove yourself from this list.
I just googled it and yeah. Now I can see a real meaning behind the saying ‘don’t give out personal info on the internet’..though in these times it’s difficult not to
THIS IS SCARY SHIT. This could be how my ex has been getting my information for a long time… ITS DANGEROUS. I JUST CHECKED IT OUT AND ITS REAL. IM ON THERE, MY FAMILY IS ON THERE. THIS IS NOT OKAY.
I GIVE ZERO SHITS IF YOU AREN’T FROM AMERICA YOU ARE FUCKING SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS THIS IS SO IMPORTANT THIS IS HOW STALKERS OPERATE OH MY GOD SIGNAL BOOST
this is real. very real. i just searched a bunch of people I know, including myself, my parents and other relatives. If you pay the fee you can find out VERY PERSONAL THINGS. THIS IS NOT OKAY.
THEY HAVE MY FUCKING UNDERAGE SISTER ON HERE THIS IS SICK. I’m literally enraged right now. It’s gonna take me all goddamned day to go through every place my family has ever lived and delete any trace of them. The fact that this shit is allowed is horrifying to me.
jake english is a scared and disillusioned teenage boy who is being forced to face every single one of his shortcomings without any sort of moral support from any of his friends
he grew up alone on an island, he had to burn his grandmother’s body when he was a toddler, he found solace in his movies and in the romanticized idea of adventure and romance and in this way jake was very, very sheltered. when he was actually faced with the real world, with the horrors that come with the action and the pain that comes with romance, it was a huge blow to every idea he’d built his fucking life on. his entire world was wrenched out from under him and he’s floundering.
and yes, he’s selfish. yes, he can be block headed and he doesn’t always notice when he’s being rude, but that’s not entirely his fault. the only one of his friends who didn’t put him on a pedastal was roxy and she was drunk more than she was sober so a lot of what she says goes discredited by her friends. jane and dirk wouldn’t ever tell jake when he was being a dick because they refused to realize it. they romanticized him and actually stunted his growth as a person because they saw him as this personification of manliness and perfection when he was really an isolated teenage boy with nothing but movies and a misguided sense of adventure to keep him afloat.
he pressured himself into a relationship with dirk not because he loved him but because he felt like he had to feel that way about him. if jane had confessed first, he probably would’ve ended up dating her and that’s wrong, yes, he shouldn’t have done that but he didn’t know any better and no one would tell him so. and so he ends up being the bad guy because dirk is controlling and insecure and doesn’t know what to do when jake doesn’t live up to this ridiculous expectation that dirk had built up in his head. so dirk looks like the only one who gets hurt and when he forgets jane’s birthday, jake’s the bad guy. everything is jake’s fault even though nobody ever actually tried to help him . everyone expected jake to be just as versed in socializing as they were, they expected him to understand these things that came so naturally to them and that wasn’t fair to jake.
so now jake blames himself and jake thinks that everything is his fault and no one’s disputing that fact because dirk’s off in god knows where and roxy’s imprisoned and jane’s being mind controlled. and jake is confused and scared and he hates himself he absolutely loathes himself for how he treated his friends and he doesn’t understand that it’s not completely his fault and now jane is telling him everything he already believes about himself, she’s reaffirming this idea that jake is dull witted and idiotic and never getting better, that his only asset is his appearance so of course he’s going to cry. of course he’s scared and blubbering, of course he wants to fucking go home. he’s a fucking teenage boy and if you can find it in yourself to forgive dirk’s borderline abusive treatment of jake because ‘he’s not good with people’ then you can damn well do the same for jake.
