1. Fearor actually made hundreds of the damn things and hid them all over Middle Earth for the world's biggest Easter Egg stuck in a tree in the Misty Mountains, one stuck in Erebor to become the Arkenstone, one hidden in Scatha's treasure horde in Rohan, one being used as a doorstop by the Sackville-Bagginses because why the hell not at this point...

  2. Elves are creatures of the light of the Valar. They awakened under the stars, light & white are both descriptions of the brightness they dwelled in. Eldar or Calaquendi elves did not look different from Avari or Moriquendi. The term "dark elves" is a description of the elves who descend from those unwilling to travel to Valinor, who did not get to live under the light of the Two Trees. It's not a physical description of skin tone.

  3. For what it's worth, Elbereth was a Valar who took on the form of an elf and they have a poem about her literally entitled "Snow White". Here is the first stanza:

  4. It's Amazon trying to send the message that "Climate change is natural, guys! So let us coorporations twist and destroy the environment all we want!"

  5. MLP was sometimes suprisingly mature, but still it was mostly for kids show.

  6. I was also impressed with how MLP handled these topics, such as excessive self blame in "do princesses dream of magic sheep?"

  7. I think this is likely less a reflection of his opinion of the show, and more likely Amazon's decision to cast someone visibly older than Robert Aramayo. I forget which interview it's mentioned in, but one of the cast members said they purposefully wanted Celebrimbor to appear older to visibly signify his seniority over Elrond.

  8. It’s so absurd, Celebrimbor is younger than Galadriel yet he looks much older.

  9. I'm always a little gutted that Lee Pace portrayed Thranduil as (having seen his performance in The Hobbit) I can't help but think he'd make a fantastic Feanor if the Silmarillion ever gets made. Pretty sure having played Thranduil, no one would cast his as Feanor!

  10. I wonder if David Tennant could pull of Feanor. That would be worth seeing I think.

  11. Granted. The finger curls, and nothing happens…or does it? Suddenly, the world just seems a little brighter. You go home, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, everything seems to be okay. Over the next few weeks, things just start going right for you. You always wake up just at the right time for the sun to warm your face, your coffee always seems to be just the right temperature, everyone always seems to know exactly what to say to cheer you up, and nothing terrible happens. Then, you meet someone and, within a few hours, both of you fall in love. You just seem to be perfect for each other, and nothing goes wrong. You live a long, happy life, and when you’re over 100, you lie down and your last moments are spent thinking “I did it. I beat the paw.”

  12. I’ve been in this fandom since 2012, and you’re not alone: I have heard similar stories over and over again. There is, I think, something fundamentally special about Friendship is Magic that is very difficult for anything else to pull off. The wholesomeness is an aspect, certainly, but there’s more to it than that…the whole world is suffused with a sense of peacefulness and calmness that you don’t see anywhere else in fiction.

  13. This is also my favourite episode in DHMIS. It’s incredibly creepy, but the ending is also incredibly wholesome at the same time. It’s a perfect blend of everything.

  14. I know this is a joke but the real reason ArwenMs fate is tied to the Ring is that Arwen’s fate and the fate of the elves depends on the Great Rings of Elrond and Galadriel. Once the One is destroyed, those Rings no longer work. So the elves can only stay in ME as long as the One is intact.

  15. What's up with all these "this place in Tolkien mythology is actually a Lovecraftian hellscape" posts that we've been getting lately?

  16. “Now it is a strange thing, but things that are good to have and days that are good to spend are soon told about, and not much to listen to; while things that are uncomfortable, palpitating, and even gruesome, may make a good tale, and take a deal of telling anyway.”

  17. He’s dead but he’s not Stain. Stain had a completely different personality.

  18. “No thank you! I don’t want any more well wishers, relatives or distant relations!”

  19. I would argue, yes. In fact I would go further and say it is a mythology for England based before the Norman Invasion. Tolkien is very careful to make key parts of his world reflect England before the Norman invasion- a lot of, perhaps all, the words that are used in his books have their roots from before that time, the technology of Middle Earth is consistent with that time (no full-plate armour except in Harad) and many of his kings die in the same way that Harold Godwinson did-the last king of England before the Norman Invasion (with an arrow in his eye)

  20. There are even explicitly dark-skinned Hobbits in drafts of Lord of the Rings (back when Bree was more exlusively populated by Hobbits).

  21. Tolkien used the term “swarthy” to refer to people who we would describe as black, and “dark/brown skinned” to refer to people who are tanned, but still what we could white.

  22. Of wind I sang, a wind there came and in the branches blew

  23. I hate it when stories do this. Keep their universes in a constant loop where nothing ever gets better.

  24. This is why Gil-Galad is a dipshit, Galadriel is a Karen, hobbits are evil and the only tolerable is Halbrand who is totally not Sauron…

  25. The virgin “Run and hide from the scary apes” vs the CHAD “Charge them scrawny bastards as soon as you see them”

  26. I think this is the point. The nightmares and demons can’t kill Dean-he knows them too well, he’s too well prepared for them. So of course the thing that got him would just be a completely normal thing that he couldn’t see coming: a rusty nail. I actually think it was a really good and sad ending and I don’t get the hate.
