nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.
I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.
Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.
When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.
NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.
The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.
This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is.
And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her.
What a good movie.
Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.
It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.
Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.
And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.
What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.
Always reblog nani
Nani & LIlo - doing the awesome “sisters-focused narrative” before Frozen was a thing and getting less than 1/2 the credit.
Aaaanndd this is why it’s my favorite Disney movie (though not my favorite princess because to call either Lilo or Nani a “princess” would be to diminish what they ahve to offer).
can you imagine ninjago with profanity language
like my life would be complete
not only these but the whole series like omfg
It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.
calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.
Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.
what a missed opportunity
More masturbation. I cannot deny this.
Just meaningless nonsense. sounds about right.
Fucking trying not to kill
Yeah. Me at work.
Only Being Amazing! HELL YEAH
My poor girlfriend though, Crippling Alcoholism. lol
Don’t you hate it when you finally get a good idea, but someone takes the title? And you contact them like it says if they are inactive and haven’t posted in THREE YEARS? And you get no response? This is the only time that I’ve ever been mad at Smackjeeves. :I
Just a note to OP;
you can actually contact the SJ admins and let them know the url/title is inactive and they’ll deal with it-then you can have the title! I’ve done this before with users who havent been on in like, 2 years!
HOLY SHIT SOMEONE JUST DESCRIBED MY ENTIRE ISSUE WITH COMMUNICATING WOW now i understand myself better

This might be the last update for a little while, as I haven’t done much more animation on the next few scenes, but almost the entire intro is colored! (thanks Misha haha) So here is kinda how it’s looking so far!
Thank you so much for all the donations! It means so much, honestly!
