Hey everyone! So apparently I’ve been missing for a month? I’m so sorry! 😭 I’ve just had a crazy few weeks (unsurprisingly) but I hope to make up for all the lost time 🙂 Anyway, what have you guys been up to? Please link me all your new posts so I have the chance to check them out! ❤
I was planning to dedicate the month of March to awesome women but things didn’t quite work out Still, I hope I can manage to sneak in a few tags and posts before the month is over. This is one of them – thank you so much to Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities for creating it and tagging me to do it! And also to A Book Without End for tagging me as well. I just love Ghibli so much *_* (Please check out their wonderful blogs after you’re done reading!)
- Please pingback, rather than link to me as Kate@Melting Pots and Other Calamities. I will only know if you’ve done this tag if you pingback.
- Tag as many people as you want. Ghibli movies aren’t as popular as Disney or Pixar, so be careful that those you tag are at least somewhat familiar with Ghibli.
- You can use examples from books, movies, TV shows, anime/manga, and webcomics.
- As this tag celebrates heroines, please name either a piece of fiction or a female character, if you’re able.
- Have fun!
*** I took the liberty of creating my own graphics since Kate said we could! So if you use them, please do credit me (Sophie @ Blame Chocolate). ***
Nausicaä is one of my favourite Ghibli girls! ❤ I'll go with Imperator Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road.
If there ever was an inspiring princess, it’s Diana from Wonder Woman.
Jude and Taryn from The Cruel Prince, although I still don’t know what to make of these two and how close they actually are. (Still reading the book so no spoilers please!)
Alina from the Shadow and Bone trilogy.
Chitoge from Nisekoi, and Shin-Ae from I Love Yoo (respectively).
Lily Potter (I) from Harry Potter. She sacrificed herself to protect her family and before that, she was an Auror protecting everyone else. Yet I hear very few people talking about her.
Kestrel from The Winner’s Curse. I think we’re very similar personality-wise.
Korra from The Legend of Korra. That girl kicks butt and is super funny as well!
Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones. From meek little princess to epic conqueror!
Penryn from Penryn and The End of Days. In between angels, demons and whatnot, she still manages to come on top despite being a mere human girl.
Antigone from Antigone. No one ever gives this girl any love but my God, she was such a strong heroine and went through so much.
Lyra Belacqua from His Dark Materials.
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles.
Elliot from Darkness Shows the Stars. Talk about obstacles!
Cati from Miss Abbott and the Doctor. Proper ladies don’t do hunting, construction or any of those manly activities – and Cati couldn’t care less!
