Alright, I hope you enjoy. Maybe look through these one day at a sleep over with some friends. That would be fun.
And don’t worry. NONE of these are screamers. I wouldn’t do that.
Speaking of sleepovers, here’s a masterpost of creepy sleep-over games
Aaaaahhhh, all of these are REALLY good things, in which I would gladly be summoned for! Unfortunately my dear brother, you are not the winner this time around. You know how I simply HATE to steal your lines buuuuut~ I do LOVE to steal your lines! HahAHA!
Your entry was good, but Jenna’s was better. The Difference: SHOWMANSHIP! She used pictures~ Let me leave you with this consolation prize of breath from my lungs! Thanks for trying and better luck next time!

YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE THREAD HELPING HIM FIGURE OUT THE COSPLAY IT WAS GLORIOUS
the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.
A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.
Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.
the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.
The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.
Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.
Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.
A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.
The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.
Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.
But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
What’s the password?
Superb Fairy-Wrens (Malurus cyaneus) from southeastern Australia are often exploited by the Horsfield’s bronze-cuckoo (Chalcites basalis), who lay their eggs in a fairy-wren’s nest to pass on parenting duties to unwitting foster parents. In most species, this intrusion is either sorted out before the cuckoo eggs hatch, with the parents recognising and ejecting the eggs, or parents are just resigned to feeding the chick anyway. But in 2003, Naomi Langmore found that fairy-wrens will abandon 40% of nests with a Horsfield bronze-cuckoo chick in it, which means that somehow, they can recognise the intruders. By keeping nests under constant audio surveillance, Diane Colombelli-Negrel from Flinders University found out how they do it: a very neat evolutionary trick. Starting about nine days into the eggs’ 14-day incubation, the mother wren sings a two-second tune to them every four minutes. This tune contains a unique note that’s literally a password—when the eggs hatch a week later, the chicks do what’s natural: beg for food. Their call contains this special note, and the parents know it’s their chick. Colombelli-Negrel found that if she swapped eggs early in the incubation period, the hatched chicks’ calls matched their foster parents’ calls, not their biological parents, suggesting that this isn’t an innate ability—it’s something they learn. Cuckoo eggs are usually dropped into a fairy-wren nest late in the incubation period, so when they hatch, cuckoo chicks haven’t learnt the password. The parents realise something is wrong, and as a Langmore found, 40% of the time they abandon the nest and go make a fresh start at a family elsewhere. It isn’t a clear win for the wrens—maybe they’re getting worse at recognising the signature note, or maybe cuckoos are getting better at mimicking. Either way, it’s a pretty interesting adaptation in the long-running battle of the birds.
"Why did you end up like this?
Unable to reach out to anyone.
You want the answers so badly.
You want to grab them, and fly off with them.
But you're afraid of what the Guardians will think.
You're afraid of disappointing them."
Will Graham is not who you think.
I’VE BEEN LAUGHING AT THAT COMMENT FOR THE PAST FOUR MINUTES
