#and for the record#tagging this #c: mako mori #because that easy neck slap #pointed out by vrabia#that hand plant #that take down #THAT IS MAKO MORI SHIT RIGHT THERE#AND I WILL KEEP REPEATING IT UNTIL EVERYONE ACCEPTS IT AS CANON#RALEIGH BECKET GHOSTING WITH MAKO#AND CHUCK KNOWS EVERY FUCKING UGLY SECOND OF IT#AS SOON ASTHE FUCKING NECK SLAP COMES#HE KNOWS JUST HOW DEEPLY HE IS SCREWED #MAKO’S TECHNIQUE#RALEIGH’S STRENGTH
I have seen people try to analyze Raleigh’s fighting style in this scene
and I just sit here
muttering to myself
"It’s not Raleigh’s fighting style."
#Even with a ton of training #it just wouldn’t be in the hand-to-hand combat lexicon of a six-foot-tall man #to TUCK HIMSELF INTO A BALL AND SOMERSAULT ON ONE HAND #in order to take down his opponent. #This is the technique of a MUCH SMALLER HUMAN BEING. #Someone who is accustomed to using people’s height and bulk against them #not someone who already has height and bulk to his advantage. #I will give you three guesses as to whose technique it actually is. #HINT: she is standing in the background of the first gif with her fists up #thinking to herself ‘Do the thing Raleigh. Do the thing.’ #DISCLAIMER: Hannah is not a martial arts expert. #But this is no fucking joke legit exactly the kind of thing my mom taught me #about controlling a situation and turning perceived disadvantages into the fucking endgame. #The year I ran rock camp I asked my parents to teach the self-defense workshop #and my mom is 5’2 and my dad is 6’2 and at least a hundred pounds heavier #and she showed every girl at camp how to make themselves into a fulcrum #and bring down big-ass scary dudes #and never in my life shall I forget when she asked what other advantages we have #and a girl held up her drumsticks #and Mom took one and proceeded to jab it into Dad’s pressure point. #A FUCKING DRUMSTICK. USE WHAT YOU’VE GOT OKAY. #This got hella rambly but suffice it to say that I am #and always shall be #stanning Mako Mori 5ever. #OKAY ONE MORE THING #THIS IS THE KIND OF MOVE THAT COULD SNAP A BONE #IF YOU DO IT JUST A TINY BIT WRONG #BUT RALEIGH DIDN’T #HIS ONLY OTHER NON-JAEGER FIGHT SCENE WAS CUT FROM THE MOVIE AND INVOLVED HIM SLAMMING A GUY’S HEAD INTO A BEER CAN
So I really love how the intro to Pacific Rim is, like, 90% plausible/whatever for the first two minutes. Massive tragedy in San Francisco, media and cultural response, blah blah blah
Then, completely straight-up, “So that’s when we decided to make giant robots.”
When life hands you lemons
you make giant robots

That point in a piece of fanfiction where you can tell something embarrassing is about to happen so you start fucking around on tumblr because you’re a huge baby with a crippling overabudance of empathy.
I do this with every media I consume. I pause movies and have to walk around and prepare myself for second-hand embarrassment sometimes.
The graffiti reads: “I could only afford to buy a spray can and write: Happy birthday, son. I love you.”
but imagine if we had tiny little dragons
the size of puppies
and they would go wherever we went sitting on our shoulders and hissing at everyone who tried to touch you because you’re their most special thing in the universe and they are so tiny it’s ridiculously cute
the fact that this post has more notes than i ever expected makes me really glad
I wanna see how many people on this site are into it.
I know there are more
