middle-earth meme: three races [3/3] hobbits

“Hobbits are an unobtrusive but very ancient people, more numerous formerly than they are today; for they love peace and  quiet  and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favourite haunt. They do not and did not understand or like machines more complicated than a forge-bellows, a water-mill, or a hand-loom, though they were skilful with  tools. Even in ancient days they were, as a rule, shy of ‘the Big Folk’, as they call us, and now they avoid us with dismay and are becoming hard  to find. They are quick of hearing and sharp-eyed, and though they are inclined to be fat and do not hurry unnecessarily, they are nonetheless nimble and deft in their movements.“ (The Fellowship of the Ring, Concerning Hobbits)

oyer and terminer

She burns from the inside out, that is her trouble. That the Devil sits beneath her heart and breaths fire through her being.

And she is black inside, she is sure - marked and as scorched as Satan himself - for it quivers and cracks and it will not be still.

Oh, she is a demon incarnate.

It had not been mercy that had spared her life, Emma knows.

A screeching urchin she had been, and the stooping arms of Reverend Gold had plucked her from the steps of the church door, and had placed her under the care of the village.

Unruly child, chaotic child, she was. Orphaned and, if murmurs of townsfolk were to be made word, spawn of the Dark One himself.

No, the Grace of God had not saved her, for she was not light but shimmering flame.

I don’t think MiracleModus is vagueblogging at all. If I can be in a different country and get screenshots like this because people know exactly who she’s talking about then it’s obvious it’s not vagueblogging and it’s even in the Gintama tag. Gintoki and Hijikata do not have an abusive relationship at all. Otae throws and punches people including Gintoki, Tsukuyo throws kunais at his head – neither are considered abuse in Gintama, it is comic relief and it’s well known that Gintoki and Hijikata are rougher with each other. That is not glorifying abuse.

MiracleModus, I respect it completely if you don’t like GinHijiGin, everyone has their own ship and that’s okay! I have never gone after anyone for not liking my ship or for liking one I personally don’t care for. Everyone has their own preference and there’s nothing wrong with that. But there’s no reason for me to be called out and put down when I’ve never done anything to you. I respect that you don’t like GinHijiGin, but attacking someone and calling it vagueblogging is uncalled for. Please respect that I love this pairing and please stop putting myself and my writing down just because you dislike this pairing. And if you don’t like a pairing maybe don’t read my work or work that involves the pairing, and maybe don’t shame the person for doing something they enjoy.

Chapter 10 is up, in which Belle finally accepts that her father is not going to get better, Gold offers to make her dinner, and Jefferson and Carella each try to get Gold to be more sociable
