I love Anastasia but they get so much shit wrong and I had to talk about it.

As a history major currently studying Soviet Russia I would like to formally bless this post

History majors have a hard time just sitting and enjoying period pieces….especially with others

"Wait a second…that’s not right…"
"HISTORICAL INACCURACY!!"

^ You understand me friend

I was about to be like “jeez it’s just a cartoon” but nearly died laughing at this post multiple time. read this post. it’s good post

Omg.
"Non. I do not give une fuck"
Dead.

"probably was not a zombie"

Although, the “urban legend” surrounding the supposed (not true, as this beautiful power point has established) survival of anastasia is quite cool, especially since she and her sister briefly did survive the family’s execution: “The family was told that they were to be photographed to prove to the people that they were still alive. The family members were arranged appropriately and left alone for several minutes, the gunmen then walked in and started shooting. The girls did not die from the first shots, because bullets rebounded off jewels that were sewn into their corsets. The gunmen tried to stab them with bayonets, which also failed because of the jewels. The gunmen then shot each girl in the head at close range.” (yes it’s wikipedia, but it’s one of the greatest paragraphs there.. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Romanov))

If you’ve never read Melville’s Bartleby the Scrivener, I implore you to do so immediately because it is hilarious but also disturbing at the same time. Kind of like Erik. Hands down, one of my favorite short stories ever.

I read it during my junior year of high school and instead of writing the essay over it, my entire class turned in pieces of paper that said, “I prefer not to.”

OH MY GOSH my class did almost the same thing! I read it for the first time in my sophomore year of college and the next day, the lecture went something like this:

Professor: Okay, general reactions. What did you guys think of Bartleby?

Class: *silent*

Professor: Really? You’re going to make me call someone out? Okay, fine then. Um…David. Tell us what you thought.

David: I would prefer not to.

Professor: Don’t EVEN, man.

And literally the rest of the semester, every time she mentioned we had to write an essay, we’d all go, “I would prefer not to.” Obviously, we wrote them and it was all in good fun, but I think she probably had a dartboard with Melville’s face on it at home.

there is literally no difference between academic scholars discussing their interpretations of a text and a bunch of people yelling YOUR HEADCANON IS WRONG at each other

As a Masters student I can vouch for this.

The difference is citations.
