croclock replied to your post: wow, Im pissy and disgruntled today …
argh, i saw that post too and I had similar thoughts& gah, I hope this didnt ruin your night DD:
yeaahhhhh… I would not count my night ruined. much better than my day, actually. and it’s nice knowing too that other people do have these same sorts of thoughts, because I know on my part at least they come out of what feels like a sort of “uM EXCUSE YOU stop telling me to do things I don’t wanna *pouts*” that I then stick lots of words on that sound good -shrug-
(At least it sounds good?? When I get like that I sound like an emotional troglodite ahahaha)
Nah, anything telling me what is a “”“normal”“” relationship - either romantic or sexual or anything else - usually gets on my nerves… I also have a lot of problems with this kind of debate where people get stuck in an argument when they should be debating the very logic behind it? D:
Oberyn smiled. “An old septon once claimed I was living proof of the goodness of the gods. Do you know why that is, Imp?”
“No,” Tyrion admitted warily.
“Why, if the gods were cruel, they would have made me my mother’s firstborn, and Doran her third. I am a bloodthirsty man, you see. And it is me you must contend with now.”

(This is how we write a paper.)
Celebrimbor hates it when people call him Tyelperinquar even though it’s exactly the same name for a couple of reasons:
The first - the one he always gives - is that it’s the name his father insisted on using for him, and he has come to hate his father. He hates his father and fears him and fears becoming him, and if he distances himself from that name he feels that maybe he’s distancing himself from that. His father was despicable, and in his Curufinwean pride Celebrimbor does all he can to make it clear he wants nothing to do with that shit.
The second - the one he barely has the courage to tell himself when he’s alone - is that he feels unworthy of it. Quenya may have been the tongue of his father and his uncles and grandfather and cousins, but it was also the tongue of the gentle Falmari who never did them wrong, and whom they slaughtered. It was the tongue of his mother, who raised him kind and self-aware; and his father’s mother, who was wisest of all those he ever knew; and his father’s father’s mother, who made way without complaint for the love of another where Celebrimbor always lives with a sense of not being loved well enough.
Obviously he resents not being very well-loved; he is his grandfather’s grandchild, after all. But he also feels like shit for that resentment, because his grandfather was narcissistic and unbalanced.
In the back of his mind he sees Taniquetil glowing gold, and Alqualonde white upon the sea, and Tirion proud and shining; and he remembers the lilt of the Quenya he heard when he was young and the world was full of light. He remembers being a child, and loving the world, and never worrying like he does now at night when the wind blows and the ivy hisses. He remembers his friends and family all being alive.
His friends and family are now all dead; and they all committed atrocities, all while speaking Quenya; and Celebrimbor was with them, and Celebrimbor cannot stand to hear it now.
Nat I admit i was missing the sadistic side of you :’(
Something about a minor character, they said.
‘Oh, I’ll write about Salgant’ I said.
turns out it was really much more hard to do than I thought
This was my third attempt and I hope there’s something interesting in it. For those who don’t know who Salgant is - http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/Salgant
for a quick overview. Mainly these are my headcanons about who he was in general, because it doesn’t make a lot of sense for someone whose entire personality consists of ‘fat, craven’ to be a Lord of Gondolin and a strong influence on Turgon’s decision at a major point.
Also, there’s a brief reference to Maeglin being darker-skinned, because that’s the version I usually like working with.
Wow, Salgant headcanon! I always felt bad for him, and felt like there must be something more to him than what we’re told. The version in BoLT is just so mean it almost feels like a personal grudge (maybe he sang something unflattering about Pengolodh? idk).
#sometimes i think the north wanted to keep bran #and the old gods turned their heads when he climbed up that wall #and after he fell they poured dreams into his head and green into his eyes #they stitched his soul to summer and sent their messengers after him #the north keeps its own #and our gods are greedy too
Finwions! From left: little Feanor busy metalworking and hating everybody, little Finarfin, and little Fingolfin.
the telemarketing people keep calling my grandma everyday on the precise hour of her nap, right after lunch, which pisses her off to no end
today she decided she had enough so when they rang as usual she told the telemarketing lady it was the time she usually had sex with her husband so she should stop messing up their marriage by calling around that hour, and then she winked to me
my grandma is 82

Narn I chin hurin’s narrative is so beautifully constructed tho uuuughh
- the parallels of Túrin’s handicapped companions and the variation of his power over them: lord (over sador labadal), equal status (to gwindor), subject (to brandir) [would like to debate mîm’s role in this with someone one…
Also how the two Elves compared Turin to Tuor.
And that Tuor actually met Turin once - saw, I mean.
And if one would compare how their lives and deaths went…
(Hey uh first of all i’m sorry in advance because lately I’ve been wondering if I sound like total wacko túrin stan or something hahaha)
Dude haahahahah ok Túrin is a major dick to Gelmir and Arminas!! I’d be pissed as well if I was Arminas and I think he was totally right to be pissed ( though I also understand Túrin because that shit is really important to him, trying so hard to leave his name behind, then 2 elves come and tralalala HI SON OF HÚRIN!! )
I’ve made a sorta comparison between Túrin and Tuor before in this post
tho now that I look at it again, it is pretty emotional ahahah uuh I’m really shitty with this kind of thing D: I occasionally read reviews and meta for the Children of Húrin, now I got curious and will look for a serious comparison between the plots, if I find anything I’ll be sure to post here! :)
Day 7: Something about a character you’ve never really understood
So, this prompt is a problem, because the characters I don’t really understand are the characters for which I don’t really have a headcanon. For me, at least, having a headcanon = understanding them pretty well.
So I just picked a character I don’t understand, and then invented some headcanon out of thin air.
Orodreth. I go with the later family histories, in which he’s Angrod’s son and Gil-Galad is his; that, in fact, is what I consider the most baffling aspect of his character. Because Gil-Galad is, by any standard, the most competent of the High Kings of the Noldor in Exile; he rules for over 3,000 years, isn’t recorded as doing anything stupid during that time (my standards for High Kings of the Noldor in Exile are low), and is able to pull together a really impressive Last Alliance at the end of the Age. Also, anyone who Elrond approves of, I approve of. So Gil-Galad is awesome. Finrod is awesome. Angrod and Aegnor we don’t know much about, but they took the most dangerous front line against Morgoth and settled alongside men, so in my headcanon they are also awesome.
And then we have Orodreth. Guys, he’s just not up to the standards of the House of Arafinwë, you know what I mean?
this is very good and very interesting!! I agree with swamp-diamonds that for a character you say you don’t understand very well, you actually managed to make a very interesting analysis?? Some parts were very sweet!
(also pretty much the complete opposite of almost all of my headcanons re: Orodreth hahahahahahaha like REALLY, but yeaaaah that’s part of the fun!!)
