A language is more than just a complex of sounds and structures and word-meanings. It’s also the bearer of a culture, an incredible freight of human knowledge and experience and understanding—of epics, myths, nursery rhymes, proverbs, parables, ritual formulae, jokes, love-songs, dirges. When a language dies, all this dies with it. Think about that, then multiply it by the literally thousands of languages now at risk.

I like to think that Howl and Calcifer just sat down and had tea and a chat once in a while. You would too if your fireplace were a sentient fire demon. It’s one of the perks.
(Super late submission to ghibli jam, which I only found out about at 10PM last night (!) Process on twitter.)

I’m jumping on the “Tulio and Miguel look like Loki and Thor” bandwagon really late, but I couldn’t help myself. That horse is two seconds away from jumping ship.

SWEET GOD ALMIGHTY MUIRIN I LOVE YOU MORE
