headcanon ;;Race characteristics for LotR that aren’t just ‘( short/tall ) human with different ( beards / feet / ears )’ –
Elves have a second, clear eyelid that gives them the appearance of “sleeping with their eyes open” when they close it in order to rest. They do not often blink.
While Hobbits are known to have large feet, few know that they also have disproportionately large and powerful thigh and calf muscles. They can jump higher, in terms of their weight and size, than any other race.
Orcs and Uruk-hai feel very little pain, and as such, they tattoo and scar themselves in honor of their gods. Sauron is not one of them.
Dwarves’ eyes have a very small sclera. Instead, the iris is almost all that can be seen. Their pupils can expand in the dark until their eyes are an empty black, enabling them to see in the dark better than any other race. In some kingdoms, blinding a Dwarf by leaving them in the dark for days before flooding them suddenly with light is used as a punishment.
Hobbits have almost twice the number of taste buds as humans.
The ears of Elves can move and tilt towards noises, although the range of their movements is limited.
Dwarves may often be born with six toes. Those that do are called stone-bound, and are said to have a deeper connection to the earth.
Many humans have reported a feeling of being watched when they are with Elves, even when alone with them. This is caused by the Elven fëa / fae / spirit, which is separate from – but linked to – the body, giving some sensitive non-Elves the feeling that there are two people present instead of one.
With age, a Hobbit’s hair may become mossy green. This is due to faint pigments in their shampoo that collect, very slowly, over the years.
Small sensory organs in Dwarves’ hands and feet help them detect vibrations and minute details in anything they touch. These organs are slightly raised and look similar to callouses.
Let’s talk about September 2016. Harry disappeared to Jamaica to write on his album. Interestingly enough, for the first time all year, Louis suddenly started going MIA that same month. What are the chances? Let’s look into this…
Quick question but: why is there hardly any stuff on ADD by itself? Or anything that tells you straight out how ADD is different than ADHD? It’s always ADHD or ADHD/ADD, but never just ADD—and even with ADHD/ADD things, the ADD is kind of just melted into ADHD. Am I just missing the resources and blogs that are just for ADD or something? I’ve had to pick through articles and things labeled as being for both, but they never really clearly define the difference between the two. In my opinion, the two are just different enough that there should be a clear definition.
me on vacation: taking evening walks on the beach to watch the sunset in tranquility, walking around with my brazenly unshaven legs, continually telling my mom that i am wearing a suit to an upcoming formal event no matter how much she tries to call me an embarrassment, openly reading scholarly essays about how anne bonny and mary read were butch lovers, getting ice cream at various local shops, eating some damn good thai curry, challenging anyone in my family who tries to insinuate that the radical right saying they’re gonna kill people are less bad than liberals protesting confederate statues
i've been following you for a while and it does seem like you favor and support the maknae line a lot more than the hyung line...
I’m not sure what you mean by supporting the maknae line more because I’m the gal who still hasn’t watched Hwarang, that variety show Jungkook was on with the burger fiasco, or the one Jimin and Hoseok were on about sewing pants. And I don’t buy fan goods so I don’t even support one line more with my money.
But, if you mean supporting them on my blog, I probably reblog more pictures of the maknae line because Jimin is my UB, Jungkook is almost always second (except when Yoongi pops in like “Hey, time to swerve”), and Taehyung was my UB for 2.5 years but that doesn’t mean I don’t like hyung line. I think I’ve been pretty open with the fact that I run through lanes like I’m drunk and playing Frogger. And, if you consider each chapter of Mr. Min as a separate unit then I have written more for hyung line than the maknaes. Not to mention the next series I’m starting is Seokjin and Namjoon centered.
Regardless though, I think this entire thing about which line people stan is a bit ridiculous. I’ve seen people insult the maknae line fans by saying the kids have more fans because it is “easier” to stan them so hyung line fans are more dedicated or “real”. And, vice versa, I’ve seen hyung line stans be insulted for being “too smug” about rap line’s influence in album productions. Just…all around the entire thing is ugly and pretty immature imo. I love all the members for different reasons. Stanning any one particular member or line doesn’t make you a better fan or person than anyone else. So basically…
