During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.
The reason Mushu couldn’t wake the dragon is because the dragon was no longer there. Mulan is implied to be the Great Dragon that protects her family.

√ Harry Potter Inspired Illustrations
A series of “artifacts” from the wizarding world (and extremely fun commission!).
"Harry Potter Artifacts; Books 1-7," ink and watercolor, 2013.
"israeli soldiers are only doing it because they HAVE to" "israel loves palestinian children more than their barbaric fathers - otherwise they wouldn’t use ~human shields~” “most israelis are moderate, nice people!!!”
“most israelis are moderate, nice people!!!”
"Three out of four are in favour of segregated roads for Israelis and Palestinians in the West Bank, and 58% believe Israel already practises apartheid against Palestinians, the poll found.
A third want Arab citizens within Israel to be banned from voting in elections to the country’s parliament. Almost six out of 10 say Jews should be given preference to Arabs in government jobs, 49% say Jewish citizens should be treated better than Arabs, 42% would not want to live in the same building as Arabs and the same number do not want their children going to school with Arabs.”
They also attack a market place full of civilians during a cease fire, but since the cease fire wasn’t in that area, they decided to go bomb the market places. Also, they attacked SCHOOLS and HOSPITALS.
There is an Israeli resistance both inside and outside the state. Haaretz has had some amazing pieces in the last couple of weeks— stuff more critical than anything coming out of the mainstream U.S. media. Problem is, Israel doesn’t tolerate dissenters even if it’s their own people, and protestors have had all kinds of shit done to them. They’re struggling to be heard as well.
But there are plenty of citizens who swallow the company line whole, and it’s disgusting. All kinds of horrible reports are coming out about people who watch the bombings of Gaza from hilltops, and that hideous “Gaza Strip” in which women post scantily clad images of themselves in support of the IDF’s policies, and chants in the streets saying “Death to Arabs.” The right to defend oneself only extends to Israelis, apparently, not the besieged Palestinians— and Hamas is the only angry hateful voice in the bunch, not the Israelis who openly support ethnic cleansing in order to take over the rest of historic Palestine.
What we are seeing here is how every colonial/fascist power managed to perpetuate and consolidate itself: ordinary people who are taught a certain hateful narrative and then carry it out to its logical conclusion, at the expense of a whole occupied population.
It’s sick. It’s disgusting. Don’t let the propaganda machine fool you. Israelis want just one thing: the land from river to sea, but without the people who lived there for generations.
This is South African apartheid. This is Hitler’s ethnic cleansing. This is European slaughter of Native Americans. This is the darkest, scariest consequence of nationalism. This is a living nightmare, and it’s happening in 2014 in real time.
This is genocide. What you are seeing is genocide. Here is what genocide looks like and sounds like; the evidence is everywhere. Wake up, and figure out who you stand with.
July 29th, 2014
An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.
Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.
After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.
Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.
