Can’t you just imagine a crossover AU where Keladry of Mindelan and Steve Rogers are friends because they both pick fights with those more powerful than them, and they both hate bullies and I just REALLY THINK THEY’D GET ALONG SWELL. :3

So I always see these ‘My otp makes me cry every day’ posts

vintagelady-modernwoman:

And I am just sitting here because my Otp doesn’t hurt.

George and Alanna are in a great relationship where, yes while they don’t always get along, they manage to work everything out and it is good. They love each other, love their children and grand children.

They are like my ideal relationship. And they never make me cry. They just make me so happy and hopeful for real love.

Thank you for giving me a relationship standard that was good and healthy. One that showed love as a good thing, not a tool used to hurt people or control them. They never say ‘If you loved me you wouldn’t go on this dangerous mission’. They say ‘I love you. Please come home from this dangerous mission.’ I hope to someday have a relationship like theirs.

sometimes george and alanna make me cry because i think about how awful it will be if one of them dies before the other because PERFECT LOVE, PERFECT RELATIONSHIP, PERFECT PEOPLE.

Really lazy doodle of Alanna right after she is visited by the Great Mother Goddess. I always imagined that when she used it it emitted a fire-like glow only she could see?

Both pieces of art belong to Minuiko

but also, one of THE VERY BEST THINGS about these books, is that you can see real change. it’s hard, and it’s slow, and it’s a constant battle, but societies change and people change and norms change. it’s so perfect and beautiful and amazing that by the time kel is training to be a knight, there are little girls everywhere who want to be like her. the stories of alanna and daine and kel spread like wildfire, and women around the world cling to those stories and bring them into themselves to help create more stories.

fiercedandelioness asked:

I thought it was a Tortall/Mulan crossover as well and was like holy shit Neal would squash Mushu with his boot while explaining to Mulan that if she really wants to be a knight she just has to hang out with the right crowd and he's probably flirting with her and blushing let's be real and Mulan is all wtf is with this kid until Kel exasperatedly peels him off and offers to introduce her to Alanna and Neal sputters and is like DON'T LADY WILL SCARE HER OFF PLEASE KEL dammit now I need this

shang and lord wyldon facepalming in unison every time neal talks, chien-po & friends taking owen and his cousins under their wings, merric singing a “a girl worth fighting for” on marches until peachblosson bites him. INTERNET, MAKE IT HAPPEN.
