especially the grey company

In the Unfinished Tales it is mentioned that Sindarin and Silvan elves living in Mirkwood were mostly illiterate. Therefore, Oropher, Thranduil and Legolas did not know how to read or write in Tengwar script. And then it just clicked. That is the reason Legolas doesn’t say anything about the text at the gates of Moria in FOTR. Why? Because even through it is in elvish, it is written in Feanorian characters, Tengwar. So then everyone is staring at Legolas, who is probably mortified because nobody is supposed to know that he and his father, the great elvenking, are illiterate. Gandalf knows and so he just reads the script, trying not to laugh at his horrified expression.

You could hear Gloin drawls in exasperation as the Company ride on ponies for hours. And by the looks of it the red-headed dwarf might turn around and go back to the Blue Mountains to his family, but you couldn’t help but think what it would feel like if you left a family behind to join this quest to reclaim these dwarfs’ lost home and slay a living fire drake obsessed with anything shiny.

The thing is, you lost your family years ago, making you the lone survivor. Therefore you never got the chance to feel the dread of leaving one behind, and the probability of never seeing and being with again.

in regards to selling fanart

actually this is kind of important and i want to reword it, sorry for the deletion of the original. an anon asked if i ask permission before selling fanart and my reply was the following:

i feel like if someone had the desire to sell fanart of one of my characters, i would be okay with it as long as they never claimed ownership of the original design and weren’t outright copying my existing work; their own take on my design wouldn’t be as much of a problem.

it would be a little weird maybe, considering i have no comic or show that would benefit from the promotion and circulation of fanart. and because of that, i would also admittedly prefer someone ran it by me before doing so, so that i’d be aware of it happening.

i feel that my stance on people asking permission would change if i had created something that was already widely known though.

i think this is a stance a lot of companies take, which is why so many people can sell fanart freely at conventions and on the internet. but it is a huge grey area regardless, especially with certain companies expressing explicit no-fanart policies

but i gave it some more thought and really, i don’t know that i would in fact be okay with people profiting from my designs, only because i don’t really profit off of them myself. 

in my mind, one of the pros to allowing fanart of your creations would be that it promotes your stuff and expands your audience. so if you sell comics or have made a game or whatever, the more people that are made aware of it, the better for you.

i feel like it’s (kind of) alright to produce and sell fanart because it’s beneficial for both parties. but it would be different if you were going against the creators wishes or if you were profiting off of something that the original creator isn’t profiting off of themselves.


if that makes sense?


fuck someone take my keyboard away from me
