Can I just take a minute to say that this scene legitimately kills me? All I can think about during this is how terrified Merry must be to let Pippin go off on his own for the first time and be away from his little cousin. I imagine Merry desperately wanting Pippin to stay with him, but at the same time wanting Pippin to be able to become stronger and explore the world. Merry would like to keep Pippin by his side forever, watching over him closely, however he knows that Pippin is going to grow older and not need his protection as much as he did when they were children. He loves Pippin so dearly and squeezes his hand, not knowing if they’ll ever see each other again. FUCK MY LIFE AND THESE MERRY/PIPPIN FEELS I’M MAKING MYSELF SOB WHYWHYWHY
Hello, everyone! Peregrin Took here, ’m going t’ make a post that’ll probably make Merry a bi’ angry, bu’ it had t’ be done. Ye’ see, Merry’s no’ quite ‘imself today, seeing as he’s… well I think it’s called, em… *whispers* Male PMSing.
“SHUT IT PIPPIN. OH NO I DIDN’T MEAN THAT I DIDN’T MEAN THAT AT ALL PIP I’M SO SORRY COUSIN MERRY’S JUST HAVING A ROUGH DAY IS ALL PLEASE FORGIVE ME.”
’m sorry, Mer’, I just-
“PIPPIN MY ADORABLE LITTLE COUSIN COME HERE COME AND GIVE MERRY A HUG YOU. I JUST WANT TO HOLD YOU AND FEEL BETTER. SOUND GOOD? MMKAY? MMKAY.”
Merry, I don’ understand what-
“YOU DON’T NEED TO UNDERSTAND JUST EMBRACE ME.”
*snuggles close to Merry* Tha’ better?
“YES VERY MUCH SO.” *squeezes the life out of Pippin and starts sobbing* “WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME?! THIS SHOULDN’T HAPPEN TO MEN IT’S UNFAIR! I. HATE. EVERYTHING.”
*wheezing* MERRY! CAN’T- BREATHE- …Does “everything” include m'self?
*loosens grip* “SORRY PIP! I’M JUST SO EMOTIONAL RIGHT NOW!” *the question finally sinks in and he smushes Pippin’s face* “OF COURSE I DON’T HATE YOU! HOW IN MIDDLE EARTH COULD I HATE YOU? YOU’RE SO CUTE AND NICE AND PRETTY AND SWEET. ARE YOU DOUBTING MY LOVE? DON’T YOU DARE DOUBT MY LOVE PIPPIN! PIPPIN I LOVE YOU!”
… Merry, maybe ye’ should go take a nap fer a little while. Ye’ don’t seem yerself.
*sighs* “You’re probably right, I should get some rest. I’ll go drown my sorrows in some apples.” *lets go of Pippin and walks to his room, glancing behind him momentarily* “Oh, but one more thing. I did mean what I said about loving you.” *grins at Pippin before leaving the room*
*stares, stunned* Wha’… MERRY! YE’ CAN’T JUS’ LEAVE IT LIKE THA’! *runs after Merry, hugs him from behind* I love ye’, too, stupid Brandybuck.
*smiles and spins around, returning the hug* “Thanks, Pip. I’ll be able to get through this hell now.”
((THERE’S YOUR DAILY DOSE OF MERRY/PIPPIN WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT. NOW MERRY-MUN IS GOING TO CRY OVER HER BRANDYTOOK FEELS AND GOD AWFUL CRAMPS WHILE EATING POCKY.))
Does anyone else get slightly emotional upon realizing 1) It’s canon Pippin caught the bouquet at Sam’s wedding. 2) Merry and Pippin lived the rest of their years TOGETHER. With no mention of either of them marrying a lass, and having a family.
I’m super tired from not getting much sleep, but I need to rant about my feels for a second. I had a sleepover with my friend (who I often call “Pippin”) last night and we got up at eight this morning to watch Return of the King after breakfast. It was the first time my friend was going to watch the movie, so I knew her feels would be all over the place and experiencing an unfathomable level of NOPE.
As you would imagine, we were shouting abuse at the screen, crying, laughing, screaming, making continuous gay jokes, and flipping this little miniature table she has. It was so fun. At the same time, it was an overload of feelings. I honestly could not and neither could my friend. It was everything!
For example: The scene where Frodo’s a complete idiot and leaves Sam behind to sob (gets me every time, I swear), Denethor admitting he would have rather had Faramir die in Boromir’s place, which caused us to rage like no tomorrow about what a douche dick Denethor is (I mean his actions, I understand that there’s more to him than just being a jerk), and Pippin finding Merry on the battlefield. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST THAT SCENE I CAN’T EVEN DESCRIBE THE FEELINGS IT MAKES ME FEEL. MERRY’S ALL, “I KNEW YOU’D FIND ME” AND THEN, “ARE YOU GOING TO LEAVE ME?” AND PIPPIN’S LIKE, “NO, MERRY. I’M GOING TO LOOK AFTER YOU.” GODDAMN OTP RIGHT THERE. I DON’T GIVE A FLYING FUCK IF THEY’RE TECHNICALLY COUSINS, MERRY AND PIPPIN ARE CANON AS HELL. AS CANON AS DESTIEL! ((Reference to a post my friend made when I said that last night.))
Don’t get me started on Sam and Frodo’s romance. It began with the line where Shelob wrapped Frodo in her web and Sam said, “Let go of him, you filth!” It ended with the line, “I’m glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee…here at the end of all things.” DEAD. BOTH OF US DEAD.
We literally cried at a few scenes, especially the second to final scene when Frodo leaves. I cry at that scene every single time I watch it and it tears me to pieces!!
Frodo: “We set out to save the Shire, Sam. And it has been saved. But not for me.”
Sam: “You don’t mean that.”
Frodo: *hands Sam the book* “The last pages are for you, Sam.”
(Frodo hugs Merry and Pippin, lots of crying, etcetera. Frodo hugs Sam tightly and then kisses his head, proceeding to smile at his friends as he boards the boat and is to never return to The Shire.)
STUPID PETER JACKSON RIPPING MY HEART OUT AND STOMPING ALL OVER IT. I NEED THAT ORGAN IN MY CHEST THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
There’s so many other scenes I would like to rant about, but I won’t be able to stop if I do. Plus, my dad needs to get on. I’ll probably make a second part of this rant about my feels later. Ja Ne, guys. I’m gonna go drown my feels and emotions in these delicious cheesy crackers. T__T
From time to time, Merry and I’ll be posting little things about our headcanons. I’m sorry if you hate us for this.
Yeah, what Pip said.
When Merry and Pippin were little, they used to pretend to go on adventures and fight dragons and things. So one day, Merry made a paper mache dragon head and showed up at Pippin’s hobbit hole wearing it. Pippin promptly attacked him with a stick.
If you ask him, Pippin will say his favourite colour is gold or yellow. But if you ask him to elaborate, he’ll say that it’s the exact colour of Merry’s hair in afternoon sunlight. ((Merry-mun: That is the cutest damn thing ever!))
Pippin loves to knit, and once taught Merry to knit. The next time they saw each other, Merry just wordlessly handed Pippin a scarf. Pippin has never gone anywhere without that scarf. ((Coming up with this headcanon made Pippin-mun start knitting again))
Merry actually used to think that apples were okay, not bad or good, just average. But then one day when Pippin was really little, he walked up to Merry and handed him an apple with a smiley face carved into it, and walked away. Merry’s loved apples ever since. ((Merry-mun: Pippin-mun, I command you to stop coming up with these adorable and sweet headcanons for them. I’m going to get diabetes…))
What really made Pippin fall for Merry was the fact that Merry was the only one that ever listened to him, or acted like he was anything more than useless. Everyone else constantly told him to be quiet and stop running around, calling him useless, reckless, and “Fool of a Took” (HINT HINT, GANDALF THE GREY-T BIG BULLY).
Due to Merry’s odd middle name, which is Porphyrogenitus, he was teased a lot when he was a kid. He would be distraught and unsettled, so Pippin comforted Merry with kind of words, such as, “But, it’s good because it makes you a hyro!” Merry smiled a teary smile at his little cousin and would hug him tightly. Merry first started developing a little crush on Pippin because of these comfort sessions. ((Pippin-mun kind of screamed for ten minutes upon hearing this headcanon.))
Merry horribly lacks the basic skills of cooking, so Pippin has been trying to teach him. They occasionally make meals together, even if Merry burns the food once or twice in the process. ((Inspired by Omg Merry-mun you don’t know the basics of cooking watching that was hilarious))
When they were younger, the two cousins would go on walks around The Shire and when they passed a certain meadow that Pippin loved, he would drag Merry over to it while he picked flowers. After it went on for several minutes, Merry forced himself to stop fawning over how happy and cute Pippin looked, ordering the young Hobbit to return and keep walking. Pippin would respond with a gleeful, high-pitched, “Okay!” and Merry had to bite back a grin while he watched Pippin, holding a bouquet of flowers, skip over to him. ((Inspired by the fact that Pippin-mun loves to pick flowers and that’s why it took almost hours to walk to the BART station))
Merry has been getting Pippin to participate in their shenanigans ever since they were kids and there was a certain point in Merry’s life where he dealt with peer pressure from other Hobbits his age. Some boys dared Merry to try smoking, saying he was a chicken if he didn’t. Merry hated to be called names and wanted to prove he could do something more ‘mature’, so he agreed. Later that night, he was sitting in his room with a pipe one of the boys had given him to try out. Before he managed to start smoking, Pippin, who had invited himself inside Merry’s home, found Merry in the room with the pipe. Pippin ran up to Merry and slapped it out of the elder’s hands, looking at him with disappoint, but also worry. Pippin told Merry that he didn’t need to prove anything to anyone because he was a wonderful guy and that Pippin admired him so much. Merry was blown away by what Pippin said and he knew that as long as he had Pippin viewing him as a good person, then that’s all he needed. With Pippin’s courage and love, Merry never gave in to peer pressure again after that. ((Pippin-mun: MERRY-MUN WHAT WE DIDN’T TALK ABOUT THIS ONE FIRST OH MY GOD ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME JESUS FUCK HELP))
Hey, guys! KouandHarukaFan here to notify my followers (and whoever else sees this) that my friend and I made a new blog. It’s an ask blog for Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took from Lord of the Rings. :D One of its main focuses is BrandyTook or the Merry/Pippin ship, so if you’re a fan of that pairing, then please stop by and check us out. We’re both sort of new to this role play business, but we strive to get better at it.
I’m rp-ing Merry and my friend’s rp-ing Pippin in the blog. She’s still getting the hang of typing in a Scottish accent, so she won’t talk with one for the time being. I’m also working on my Merry as well. Again, as I said before, we’re new to this stuff and would appreciate any type of feedback. All are welcome to our blog and we look forward to making this work. ^-^
‘I never thought no such thing,’ answered Sam, in no mood for jest. 'If you want to know, I felt as if I hadn’t got nothing on, and I didn’t like it. She[Galadriel] seemed to be looking inside me and asking me what I would do if she gave me the chance of flying back home to the Shire to a nice little hole with - with a bit of garden of my own.’
'That’s funny,’ said Merry. 'Almost exactly what I felt myself; only, only well, I don’t think I’ll say any more,’ he ended lamely.

[I am still laughing at this because… what exactly are you trying to hide from us, Merry?]
who the fuck put the peeps in the microwave BOTH. And they both get irrationally excited at the outcome.
who forgot to put the cat pig outside before sex Probably Pippin.
who posts vines of the other doing embarrassing shit It’s a constant battle. No one knows who started it, but it’s not likely to stop any time soon.
who breaks the most phones PIPPIN. Merry is far better at taking care of his things.
who dies first Pippin, but only barely. Merry follows him behind half an hour later.
which one I could see as being lactose intolerant Pippin, because imagine Merry going out of his way to think of all sorts of new dishes and yummy meals because he can’t stand to see his little cousin sad ;A;
who thinks they can do something really well even though they can’t Oh my God, both. Though at least Merry is sassy. He just sighs inwardly when Pippin tries to be witty.
who is more likely to get kicked out of the bed They kick each other out of bed. Physically. At the same time. And then make out on the floor, in a tangle of sheets…
who uses the computer most Probably Merry, and Pippin keeps annoyingly watching him and reading everything he types because obviously whatever Merry does is very fascinating and exciting.
&*& and ((no seriously Merry and I don't even get it what the fuck is "&*& and"?))
“ Sometimes — ”
There was heaviness in Pippin’s voice; not just the warm, cosy heaviness of sleep, but a far more hollow one, one of genuine dread that did not fade even as he buried his fingers in his cousin’s shirt, eyes staring wide and unseeing into the surrounding dark.
“ — when I go tae sleep, I’m afraid mah legs won’t be thair when I wake up. ”
