nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.

I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.

Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.

When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.


The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.

This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is. 

And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her. 

What a good movie. 

Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.

It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.

Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.

And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.

What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.

LOVE this movie


Salam-un-Alykum [Peace Be Upon You]

This rally was held to raise awareness about the current conditions in Iraq and Syria and the innocent lives being taken away by the terrorist group ISIS/ISIL. Also, this was a multi-faith rally therefore individuals of different faiths [muslims, christians, hindus, sikhs etc] came out to protest against the atrocities being committed by the terror group ISIS/ISIL.

Furthermore, this rally was to raise awareness that ISIS/ISIL has nothing to do with the Islamic Religion. The word “Islam” itself means peace. They may call themselves Muslims but the Holy Quran clarifies such people cannot be Muslims or even humans for that fact. 

Surah 5, Verse 32 States That “Whoever kills an innocent it is as if he has killed all of mankind. And whoever saves a person it as if he has saved all of mankind.”

Let us all pray to Allah (swt) to protect our brothers and sisters in Iraq, Syria and anywhere else there is oppression. And inshallah never will Iraq surrender to its knees. It is the land of Hussain (a). It is where the air cries Ya Ali (a)

I apologize for the beginning being cut off, background noise & not the best camera quality. 

Thank You !
