The creaky old hive has stood abandoned for over two months, ever since its owner vanished into the darkness, deep underground. She ran off, presumably in pursuit of a killer, and was never heard from again.
Now, as All Hallow’s Eve draws near, the hive is ominously quiet. No seasonal music blasts from the windows. No decorations appear. No candy is assembled by the door. The fallen leaves rot in one damp layer on the ground, unraked, unplayed-in.
The hive has stood untouched, unsearched, and undisturbed. But tonight, perhaps because of the moons, or the thinning of the veil, or just an errant gust of autumn wind…
The wooden door creaks wide open, inviting any passing troll into its shadowy depths.
Where from the Void did CelebrimborXGaladriel shipping even come from?
You bring this to MY HOUSE ANON?
In the Unfinished Tales it was briefly mentioned that Celebrimbor loved Galadriel, Tolkien’s word usage of ‘love’ was very clear, but since Galadriel was already married he never acted upon it and just let it be, admiring from afar (he never died specifically for her though which is the MAIN issue I have with that particular post).
The significance of Celebrimbor being in love with Galadriel is quite minuscule, and does not drastically change anything, although if we are to seriously examine the history there is one artifact that he crafted specifically for Galadriel, at her request, when she was in despair. The fabled necklace that Arwen wore and whom Galadriel then gave to Aragorn, both known as the elfstone AND the evenstar (depending on the version).
This in of itself is a version of the story in which Celebrimbor is an elf-smith from Gondolin (of dubious descent where he is not even a Feanorian, Celebrimbor’s history changes frequently in the histories until Tolkien decided finally he wanted him to be Curufin’s child).
So this is where that particular ship came from and it is one of my only things that I sort of have to sigh about and try to come to terms that people do take it seriously.
I do however believe that Celebrimbor had great fondness for his cousin of the platonic sense of the word, and would most definitely craft for her a jewel that helped ease her wariness had she asked, and would have protected her if called upon. But I just cannot make his romantic attraction to her work out well for my personal interpretation of his history.
We can stop talking about unifying a mythical autism community, and instead help people find their autism communities. Finding their people, their group, their own specific sub-community. The one that shares their needs, values, and concerns. No one autism community is going to be able to do that for every autistic person or family member.
When sussing out communities, don’t feel like you need to agree with everything and everyone – a little friction is healthy and keeps you thinking. Do feel free to leave any group that disrespects you, or dismisses your concerns. And avoid groups that foster negativity, as conditioned bad attitudes have a real-world harmful affect upon your quality of life, regardless of your or your child’s specific disabilities. And understand that not everyone who looks like they might be your community is your community. And that not getting along with every last person in the autism communities is totally okay.
This is the article’s conclusion but I encourage you to read it fully. I apparently posted it to my Facebook a year or two ago. It was nice to find it again.
I don’t consider you all members of my ‘tribe’. We are far too diverse for that. Some autistic people want to use ‘person first language’ by saying they have autism instead of saying they are autistic. I could never do that yet at the same time it is their perogative and it’s important for us and everybody else to understand why and to hear them speak.
So don’t fight and argue. DO discuss and interact.
We can agree to disagree respectfully and we can eventually find sufficient respect from the rest of the world. Lead by example. Blah blah blah. I’m sorry. I’m not exactly inspirational as I’m coming down with some coughing cold/flu.
Here is the Lance & Blue comic I promised ! Omg I spent way too much time on this … I really LOVE to draw Lance & Blue <3 My fav paladin & Lion. (And yes, Paladins playing with their lions would be the cutest thing.) (I will definitely draw more lion stuff.)
