#hey guys remember this part #where the so-called weak lady character#dives off her fucking pod #goes over to the dude’s#pop’s the lid of his snow white coffin off #and basically hugs him back to life#and he gives her this soft little smile #and they forehead bump#and instead of fucking wedding bells #it’s military choppers overhead#in a vee formation (via quigonejinn)
I remember there was this post going around a short while after the movie came out criticizing Mako for breaking into tears over Raleigh’s supposedly dead body, instead of like, keeping a cool head and going into first aid mode.
First of all, enthusiasts of the Mako is feeble and submissive line of disgusting reasoning: she does keep a cool head. The first thing she does is check if he’s breathing and look for his pulse. It’s only when she can’t find it that she breaks down in tears over Raleigh’s supposedly dead body.
Which leads us to my next point, i.e., the fact that Mako’s lost how many people she cares about over the last couple of days? And I mean, culminating with the death of her father and asshole adoptive brother, both of whom basically died protecting her and Raleigh. Whom by the way is dead too for all she knows.
But god forbid a woman should emote on screen under the pressure of real human feelings of grief and love and loss and at the same time be a qualified badass warrior, lipstick-wearing pretty girl with perfect eyebrows. Everyone knows those things are incompatible.
(Basically everything about this scene was perfect in every single detail, and if you think Mako having a breakdown at this particular point somehow diminishes her character, don’t talk to me.)
Hey everyone, it’s been too long since you’ve watched this. I don’t care when you last watched it. Unless you’re literally watching it while you read this, it has been too long since you’ve watched it.
4/7 cameras i own are canon, i love canon.

The other-worldly pools of Pamukkale By Erin Mae Dul
Deep within the Denizli Province of southwestern Turkey lies a breathtaking site revealing dozens of natural, water-filled terraces, known as Pamukkale, which means "cotton castle" in Turkish. At the site there are about 17 known hot springs ranging in temperature from 35 °C (95 °F) to 100 °C (212 °F). In the first two photos you can clearly see the blanket of stark white contrasting the cool turquoise pools, and from first glance it would seem to be snow. The white material is in fact limestone coating the mountains, whilst the terraces cradling the pools are made up of a form of limestone that was deposited by thermal waters called travertine.
For thousands of years people have used this location’s natural hot springs, bathing, resting, and taking in the peaceful surroundings. Sadly, all those interested in immersing themselves within the relaxing springs nowadays will be greatly disappointed because they’re now closed to the public for bathing, and are even protected by security guards keeping their eyes on any tourists drawn in by the natural beauty.
Michael Turtle, a world traveller and writer commented, "Other than a special swimming pool that has been constructed away from the cliffs, Pamukkale is generally to be seen but not touched these days." [x] Although the closure of personal access to these waters is disappointing to eager travelers, this news is sure to please any true admirer of such notable natural phenomenon like Pamukkale. By protecting, and consequently preserving this site, it’s being kept from any sort of destruction and/or permanent damage due to humanity’s general lack of respect for such natural wonders, and more importantly is being saved for future generations to enjoy.
