In the original version of Snow White, the Queen actually tries to kill Snow White 3 times. One by pulling her corset so tight that she passes out, another by brushing her hair with a poisoned comb, and a third by the poison apple.

She gives her black eyes and making her mouth so bloody it looks as though she’s been “eating raw pigeons.”

Hey everyone, my best friend’s dog, Monty, has developed cancer.
this week they brought him to the vet for a routine checkup and found out that a couple of the bumps on his body are cancerous.
He and his family are crowd sourcing because the cancer is operable but…
This was posted by thedeathmerchant as evidence that I “steal posts”
Now I really don’t see the problem here. Me and dichotomized have talked it over privately, and we both realize that sometimes things will overlap between bloggers who post the same theme at times, but that’s nothing to get infuriated about.
We talked it over like mature adults.
Both posts were posted at different times. It’s impossible for one person to continuously check all over tumblr to see if a topic has been posted or not.
No one really owns a concept or event you know?
I really don’t want any of my followers to send hate to anyone, regarding this issue. But I do want people to recognize that it isn’t something to hold grudges over.
Remember kids, only one person in the world is allowed to report on a news story.
