Ok the reason this is one of the best scenes I have ever seen in a movie is because they immediately establish Colette’s tough personality as traits of a boss NOT a bitch. Unlike far too many films (children’s and adults), this lead female doesn’t try to make herself stand out by saying something that undermines other women like “I’m not like most women who spend half the day worrying what they look like” or “I don’t sit around playing with makeup and dolls”. I am so sick of seeing female characters that are written as being proud of being strong, brave, or courageous despite them being a woman. AS IF BEING A WOMAN IS A HANDICAP AND THEY BEAT THE ODDS. Colette straight out calls the patriarchy and establishes the system between her and her subordinate. At the end she isn’t portrayed as bitchy, but as a leader, and Linguine is impressed, not put off. If a man is tough and takes no bullshit, he is admired and considered a strong leader and boss. If a woman does the same she is considered out of line, bossy, and bitchy.

Here, Colette is an immediate leader, and does not try and undermine herself or other women in order to prove that she is charge.

Colette is seen as the boss, not seen as bossy.

I loved Colette.

How to make a character's death sadder


  1.  Don’t have them die of old age after a long, fulfilling life. Many people don’t even think of this as sad (note that this can still work if you have enough of the other factors).
  2.  Leave one of their major goals unfinished. The more enthusiastic they are about completing the goal, the sadder.
  3.  Give them strong relationships with other characters.
  4.  Make them fight against whatever is causing their death. Their ultimate loss is sadder if they struggle.
  5.  Kill them in the middle of their character arc.
  6.  Don’t describe their funeral in detail. Maybe it’s just me, but I find that long descriptions of funerals kill the sadness.


    That’s enough Satan’s publisher…


    7. If possible, try to kill them off in the middle of the story, so we had time to like them and we will have time to let the loss settle in.

    8. Also, place surviving characters in a situation where having the deceased person there would help them get out. You can choose whether you will point this fact out or if you want the audience to make the connection themselves.




    9. Make them die by sacrificing themselves to save someone they love from a danger created by the antagonist.


    based on a few deaths that made me blub like a baby…

    10. have their loved one, broken hearted, tell the team to stop fighting because “its over.” 

    11. have their pet come looking for them. 

    12. have their loved one perform a popular song at their funeral so it makes the fans cry whenever it’s played.

    13. family witnessing the death and/or blaming themselves.

    ~ Mulan


    so… let’s add some frustration to your dear readers’ sadness, shall we?

    14. kill the character in the middle of making a joke, smiling, or expressing/experiencing joy/happiness.

    15. make the character’s death slow and painful, but make them unable to call out for help even though they can literally see the other characters nearby.

    16. after killing the character, have others think the character had betrayed them so they’d always hate them and remember them as traitors and never say nice things about them… Give your readers no chance to have group-therapy with other characters by making them the only ones who know the truth.

    17. right before their death, show a side of them nobody has seen. (someone who is always tough and brave being genuinely scared of dying alone; someone who is always laughing being in tears before dying, etc.)

    18. make them the only person who knows a big important secret that would help other characters in the story.

    19. have them being lied to before dying. (thinking they’ve been betrayed; thinking they weren’t loved; thinking they’ve lost their loved ones, etc)

    20. make the character very enthusiastic/passionate about a certain goal, constantly put stress on their goal, have them die unexpectedly before they can reach their goal. 

    and the best one…

    21. have another beloved character kill them–better be a close friend to your character, one that absolutely nobody suspects, one that everyone can’t help but love, one who is always enthusiastic about things and encourages your character. THEN

    • reveal the truth only later when it’s too late and the a-hole character has already escaped.
    • have a cowardly character know the truth and never tell anyone else
    • have another character find out the truth and have them die before revealing it to others. 
    • have the said character ^ not actually die, but go through something so they’d forget the friend of the deceased character is actually an asshole. 

    This way only your readers will know the truth, thus the frustration would be… most enjoyable for you. 

    Satan out.


    22. Don’t kill their body.  Kill their mind.

    Leave the physical shell walking and talking, but strip out everything that made that person who they were.  Make them forget all about their loved ones, themselves, their experiences and past, their skills, and have them have to start over completely from scratch.  Physical and mental disabilities bonus points.

    And keep them in a place where their loved ones will be taunted every day by a living ghost.

    What if someone got bitten by a vampire, but didn’t realize it. So then they go around and keep misidentifying all the symptoms, like

    “Dude, you haven’t gone outside in a while.”
    “Yeah, last time I went out I got this wicked sunburn.”

    “Are you still up?”
    “Yeah, I started bing watching this show on Netflix.”

    “Dude, I’m seriously craving something right now.”
    “Like what?”
    “I dunno. Pizza rolls?”

    “Why is it that you never come into my house unless I invite you?”
    “Um, it’s called ‘being polite’…?”

    “I tried cooking with garlic the other night and got this serious burn on my hand. I think I’m allergic, but all I’m getting on Google is vampire bullshit.”

    “Dude can a mirror like… stop working or something?”

    “Dude, that garlic stinks.”

    Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.

    Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares

    If you could have a role in any TV show, what would it be?

    the casual friend disguised as the grudge-holding envious minor antagonist, who gets her major role in a few episodes where she attempts to copy/outdo one of the main characters and take over the spotlight... and always loses in the end.

    When the trio had to take turns wearing the horcrux, it enhanced all their bad thoughts and Harry couldn’t even cast a patronus. Umbridge on the other hand wore it to work to enhance her own blood staus, reveled in interrogating muggle-borns and her patronus was strong and glowing with contentment. Wearing a piece of Voldemort’s soul around her neck had no adverse effects on her at all. If that doesn’t underline just how vile a character she is, then I don’t know what does.

    Oh God I’ve never thought about that before

    if i was in a fictional universe i wouldn’t be the main character i’d probably be that friend of the main character who lacks supernatural powers or special abilities but makes up for it with sarcasm and really lame one-liners

    Danbo. a box character, exudes such a sweet personality through the skillful styling and photography of BUNNYREL. I think it's pure genius to be able to convey a range of emotions by a subtle turn of a square head. Aren't these photos great? Check out the rest of BUNNYREL's photostream.  It is really addicting and smile-inducing.

    Thank you Arielle for your permission to show a small sampling your incredible work!!  

    I just realized Danbo was its name...
    And oh more Danbo pics here
