Why do students at Hogwarts still use quill and parchment? Watch the video to find out.

I mean, sure they’ve got magic, but what’s magic got on the ~Internet~?

A lot. The answer is a lot.

Daughter of a gun (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧ No idea if such a thing existed but surely there had to be girls born on board in the Age of Sail?

there were actually tons of women and girls on board ships during the age of sail and it’s really cool history that no one!!! ever!!! talks about!!! 
like captains of merchant ships used to bring their wives and children on board for long voyages all the time (and of course there were plenty of well known female pirate ship captains, and women cross-dressing as men, and prostitutes that more people seem to know of)
there’s actually a really amazing story of one woman, Mary Ann Patten who was the wife of the captain of this ship called Neptune’s Car. Captain Patten decided that he wanted her onboard with him and she was super about this and learned all about navigation and sailing and everything. so this one voyage they’re going around the tip of south america when her husband gets sick and is bed ridden with a fever right as the ship sails into one of the worst storms any of the crew had ever seen and it looks like they might lose the ship or have to stop
so you know who takes over??? the first mate??? 
no.
MARY
she took over the whole crew and sailed that ship through freezing water and pack ice and had it coasting smoothly into the san francisco harbour like it was nothing. and she did this all at age 19. while pregnant.
at one point the first mate tried to get the crew to mutiny against her but they all rallied with her and told him to shut the heck up because she obv knew what she was doing.
there’s a great book about women in the age of sail called ‘female tars’ by suzanne stark that i cannot recommend enough and has way more amazing stories and insights about the myriad roles women and girls played aboard ship during that time period.
(sorry i totally didn’t mean to hijack your post i love all of your art and this is gorgeous i just got over excited sorry sorry sorry)

To celebrate becoming the highest grossing animated film of all time, I decided to lift my self imposed ban of posting Frozen concepts.  Here’s my Marshmallow concept I worked with Bill Schwab and Malcon Pierce on, and a couple of sets that were eventually cut from the film.  Enjoy!

So if those “Everything in Disney is Linked” theories are correct, Christoff and Sven met up with Ariel and Flounder at some point. For reasons.

Bela Lugosi served as a live-action model for Chernabog, the demon named after the god of evil in Slavonic mythology in “Night on Bald Mountain”.
Fantasia (1940)

Because of course he was.
