Pocahontas, sort of.

So, here is where I talk about how much I love Pocahontas. A few weeks (months) ago I fell in love with Disney's Pocahontas all over again - so beautiful! so powerful! arresting! - and it's officially my favorite of the Disney animated masterpieces. Don't get me wrong; Hercules still gets Best Music, Lion King is Best All-Around, and Honorable Mention to Aladdin. But Pocahontas has something uniquely other about it - more grown up themes, actual death (done beautifully, btw), and some really powerful themes. Plus, they don't end up together, stirring the dreams of my shipping heart. Never mind all that though - I'll extol the virtues of Pocahontas another time. What I want to do now is point out how many rth nods that movie contains. Wow! Seriously, the awesomeness of rth is so present in my head that I see everything with different eyes. Such fantastic writing becomes a really strong influence. And it's not just me! Behold the screencaps (poor quality, but does the trick):

Cute, cuddling otters? WTF?!

As they splashed around, all I could think was, "Vicious bastards!"

Rude hummingbird. Pffbbbt.

Well, of course there's summa dat.

Swimming with otters! Gahh!

And the kicker. Pure rth.

See?! Really, it's not me. It's there. So cheers to the brilliant rthstewart , who is awesome and makes me see her writing everywhere! I'm sure once I read BRD this effect will double. Or triple. <3
