I'd liveblog the apocalypse
21+ full-figured actresses playing 14/15/16 yr old characters rly fucked up my self-esteem and self-image when i was young and made me v insecure
quit casting adults as young characters esp in shows w/ young target audiences?? man it makes undeveloped lil girls feel inadequate that they don’t look like grown women when they’re baby teens
Victor Hugo walks up to the counter and describes the drink he wants in detail for an hour, laying out the minutiae of the process, presentation, and backstory of his extremely simple dark roast with sugar. By the time he’s finished, the store is closed, the barista has left, and Victor returns home empty-handed.
So like there are some people who are really shitty about lore and how much you know and how compliant your characters are and stuff, and I didn’t think they were in my kin but apparently they are which is. Not fun.
I’m like paranoid about my non lore compliance with Cat, because I’ve taken so many liberties with her childhood in Archet and even her early years in Bree, so I’m torn between calling them out like “you don’t have a problem with Cat” (which, to be fair, I break lore a lot more subtly than the people they complain about) and just keeping my head down
Today in Middle-Earth: A long-expected party! The hundred and twenty-ninth birthday of Bilbo and Frodo’s fifty-first birthday. (September 22nd, 3019 T.A.)
Then Thursday, September the 22nd, actually dawned. The sun got up, the clouds vanished, flags were unfurled and the fun began.
Bilbo Baggins called it a party, but it was really a variety of entertainments rolled into one. Practically everybody living near was invited. A very few were overlooked by accident, but as they turned up all the same, that did not matter. Many people from other parts of the Shire were also asked; and there were even a few from outside the borders. Bilbo met the guests (and additions) at the new white gate in person.
When every guest had been welcomed and was finally inside the gate, there were songs, dances, music, games, and, of course, food and drink. There were three official meals: lunch, tea, and dinner (or supper). But lunch and tea were marked chiefly by the fact that at those times all the guests were sitting down and eating together. At other times there were merely lots of people eating and drinking – continuously from elevenses until six-thirty, when the fireworks started.
The fireworks were by Gandalf: they were not only brought by him, but designed and made by him; and the special effects, set pieces, and flights of rockets were let off by him.
no but imagine
Harry Potter as a tv show
sort of like Game of Thrones
where each season is a book
and each episode is a chapter
everything could be fleshed out
we would have everyone’s back story
and we would have HUNDREDS of hours of Harry Potter material
No but i want this so bad its not a joke
I’ve been saying this about The Marauders. I’d prefer a Marauders show rather than a movie.
