Semana triste pra literatura brasileira :/
Ariano Suassuna has passed away. He was 87 years old.
As someone from the northeast of Brazil i feel as if it is my duty to let people who probably don’t know him know that.
In case you don’t know who he was, he was a writer, born in Paraíba. His works are many times referred to as the perfect representation of genuine brazilian culture and his most famous play is probably O Auto da Compadecida.
I grew up with Ariano in my house, his books always somewhere in the living room bookshelf, in the stories my grandma read to me when i didn’t know how to read. His stories and characters were not only incredibly relatable but they were so genuinely brazilian it almost hurt. His eternal homage of our culture was and will always be remembered, because it wasn’t just our culture that shaped him but in being so proud of it, in making it his art and his everything, he made us realise that our culture was just as good as anyone else’s, just as important and just as valid. Our culture inspired him but he shaped us as well.And for that i will forever be grateful.
I hope he rests in peace.
RIP Ariano Suassuna
1927 - 2014

"Acabou-se o Grilo mais inteligente do mundo. Cumpriu sua sentença e encontrou-se com o único mal irremediável, aquilo que é a marca de nosso estranho destino sobre a terra, aquele fato sem explicação que iguala tudo o que é vivo num só rebanho de condenados, porque tudo o que é vivo morre." Chicó.

This seriously happened live today on a news program in Brazil
So, this what Regina and Robin’s story would be like in my mind had it been presented in a romantic comedy film. The strong, independent, ex Evil(?) Queen and single mother that stumbles upon her soulmate, a strong, independent, ex Outlaw and single father! Sassy, snarky and hot! All the good ingredients for an awesome story, plus the exceptional Lana Parrilla and Sean Maguire, with a little (ok, ALOT) help by our fav Tinkerbell, Rose McIver! I did this a couple of days after the Paris con, which gave me like a gazillion ideas for videos about OQ and about OUAT. Hopefully study time will let me make them all during the summer hiatus.

This is how I think the beginning of season 4 will go according to the spoilers I’ve been hearing.
