"On the whole I am inclined to think that a witch should not kiss. Perhaps it is the not being kissed that makes her a witch; perhaps the source of her power is the breath of loneliness around her." - Emma Donoghue

S., 23, Italian. Kate is my internet handle and you can call me that. People scare me so I'll probably never talk to you even if I think you're cool, and if I do it'll be very awkward. English is my second language; I apologize for any mistakes.

I love a lot of things, including fairy tales, mythology, ladies who make music, ladies in general, history, languages. I watch a lot of movies and tv, I ship all the things, and I love Pokémon a lot.

The Official Disney Princesses [please click the link to see who is “officially” a Disney Princess]

(via disneyismyescape)



I’ve watched this scene countless times, and yet this small detail I’ve never noticed before. Pocahontas sprints through the forest, and suddenly the music changes in tempo, perhaps matching her frantic heart. We as the audience want her to get there, we want her to be there with the one she loves.

Pocahontas runs until she run no further, and, reaching the cliff, there is a moment where she leans forward slightly, almost as if she were to dive into the water below and follow him. But, at the last moment, something stops her. It is just this little detail that really makes this scene stand out as one of the most emotional endings to a Disney film.

Finally updated Pocahontas!  I don’t think this is what people were expecting as the next entry in the series, but some of the criticisms of my first design have been eating away at me for years now and I needed to get off my ass and address them.
So hey!  Spunky age-appropriate Pocahontas/Matoaka, sans feathers in the hair/European imagery/other superfluous details.  This is closer to accounts and illustrations of Powhatan dress from the period, and I kinda think it’s closer to the Disney design anyway. WIN/WIN.
Thanks to everyone who’s educated my ass over the past couple of years, including moniquill, apihtawikosisan, this-is-not-native, and numerous others.  You’ve made me a way more thoughtful artist in the process. :)

HBICs of history » P o c a h o n t a s

Pocahontas (1596-1617) was daughter of the powerful chief Powhatan. She helped maintain peace between English colonists and Native Americans by befriending the settlers at Jamestown. By the account of colonial leader John Smith, Pocahontas intervened to save his life after he had been taken prisoner by her father’s men. She subsequently converted to Christianity and wedded the colonist John Rolfe, which furthered efforts toward peace. She traveled to England, where she was received at court; she became something of a celebrity, and attended a masque at Whitehall Palace. Soon afterward she died, probably of lung disease - she was buried in England, but her resting place is not known.
