30 Day Headcanon Day 15: Little AUs
15: Something that makes you impossibly happy to think about
Happy? Silmarillion? This is obviously going to be AU. I tried turning each of these into a proper story, but none of them quite wanted to cooperate. So instead you get twelve little droplets that would have made me impossibly happy, if they had happened. EDIT: 13, because tzig-reblogs suggested something that was too good to leave out. Melkor’s happy ending is now halfway down the page.
“In recompense,” Dior says, “I will want the weapons and armory to protect a hundred thousand men. I will expect your people to hold the southern border and to come to our aid in any need. I will want three of the palantiri so I can coordinate my troop movements. The strength to hold Doriath without the girdle – for that alone I will surrender my birthright.”
“You will have it,” promises Maedhros, and whatever else is said of the sons of Fëanor they are not known for breaking their word.
Invalid Arguments made by Racist White People to Justify the Genocide and Enslavement of Africans:
- “Africans sold other Africans into slavery”
- “If your ancestors hadn’t endured slavery, you would be in Africa dying of AIDS, right now.”
- “It wasn’t that bad.”
- “It’s human nature, all societies had slavery.”
- “There were black slave owners too.”
- “Sorry, but it was simply economically advantageous to enslave blacks.”
I just really feel like Killian and Henry would get up to all kinds of shenanigans and Emma'd be getting calls at the station because they were being fucking hooligans and she'd show up all "Seriously? You two AGAIN?"
BUT IT WOULD BE PRECIOUS AND I WANT IT TO HAPPEN OKAY. HENRY NEEDS A FUN, MALE ROLE MODEL WHO CAN TEACH HIM HOW TO ACTUALLY BE A KID.
