Uh in the book Durin's Day isn't a yearly thing and that really was the only chance. I blame PJ for his poor choices since he went against so much Tolkien canon but please read the books and pay attention because this is the second time your tag meta that's more headcanon than canon has been posted around like it's canon fact.

this is what the book says about Durin’s Day:

"Then what is Durin’s Day?" asked Elrond.
"The first day of the dwarves’ New Year," said Thorin, "is as all should know the first, day of the last moon of Autumn on the threshold of Winter. We still call it Durin’s Day when the last moon of Autumn and the sun are in the sky together. But this will not help us much, I fear, for it passes our skill in these days to guess when such a time will come again."

so yes, Durin’s Day isn’t EVERY first day of the last moon of Autumn, but only those when the moon and the sun happen to appear in the sky together. now, Thorin basically says ‘we are not astronomers and we have no fucking clue when this is going to occur again’. I am no astronomer either, and I lack the time to do my research right now. Tolkien Gateway calls it a rare occurrence, while the LoTR Wikia calls it a yearly thing, so you know what, I’m going to ignore you telling me to ‘read the books and pay attention’, and just go with whatever floats my goddamn boat if you don’t mind


Listen to Lesley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, and remember her son for who he really was. Remember Michael Brown and remember all the other black lives lost to police brutality and an unjust system. 

A letter to my future child-

When the day comes that someone tells you they’ll love you forever,
Do not let it consume you,
because there will be a day that will come,
when they will tell you that they don’t anymore,
and there will be nothing left of you.

Your… Your leg


Mama Wolf AU: Scott never gets bitten. Peter Hale takes a special interest in a nurse he would catch glimpses of in the hospital he was stuck in for years. Trying to form a new pack, he forces the bite on her. Wanting nothing to do with him, she pushes him out of her life and tries to struggle with full moons on her own. Full moons and a persistent Peter aren’t her only problems, she has to juggle making Derek Hale back off from trying to become bffs with her son, keeping her secret from her family, dodging deadly hunters, and controlling her new strengths to help save lives at the hospital. When Peter starts killing again, things get even more out of control and - well, the outcome is a dead Peter Hale, and a lot of power she never thought she’d have to handle, but has no choice either way.
