hello little fox

important!

do not bash the shows that won tonys. if they won, they won. the shows or actors who won won because they deserved it.

performers work so hard and all the people who are involved work so hard! if you were nominated, that’s already so much to be proud of.

shows like ‘hello, dolly!’ are getting bashed so much! please stop being so negative just because falsettos didn’t win. 'hello, dolly!’ won best revival because it’s a good show. bette midler won because she’s a wonderful actress.

by saying musical x/play x was robbed, you’re implying the other shows don’t deserve it and are worse!

maybe just like the actors who didn’t win, you reading this, don’t make a big deal out of it and say they were robbed, maybe you applaud and congratulate the winners. and respect the performers. like you should.

you’re putting down and disrespecting art that has taken so much work and calling it 'fucking terrible’ and 'ruins everything’! no! not okay!

you don’t have to love the musical. maybe you wanted some other musicals to win. but you sure don’t see me being a dick about other musicals winning over my choice. don’t knock down shows you haven’t even listened to or know what they’re about just because you wanted other ones to win.

the outcome that people were predicting was one show should win everything! but the awards were spread around! more people’s accomplishments were acknowledged! that’s better because they all deserve it because so much work has been put into the shows!

no one was robbed, snubbed, etc.

Calming the spirits

@yordle-exorcist

So many yordles wandering the heavy snow fields of the freljord lately. 

Roggvar snuffed the air a moment as he stared across the ice field at the tiny fox-like creature. He didn’t have time to chase after another of these small creatures. The last one was too much trouble trying to catch.

The troll rested his tusk club over his shoulder and looked into the crude bag in his hand. Weary, tired eyes took stock of it’s contents. A spark stone, some sticks to create a fire, a small dagger, a patch of spirit grass (used for purifying bones), and finally the bones of a hunt.

These bones’ spirits would turn wicked if not properly buried. He was nowhere near the burial grounds of his people, but perhaps that ridge in the distance would do to appease The Freljord.

Roggvar turned from the small Yordle struggling in the snow and started walking up to the peak of the ridge. For all Dro-ghar trolls, their beliefs were far too important to put off. The Yordle would just have to wait. Especially with the blizzard blowing around them.

He lowered to his knees and looked to the sky as he reached the top, trying to figure which way the wind was blowing. The old frost troll took out the sticks and the spark stone. Most of the ways of the shamans were kept secret from the warriors, but all dro-ghar knew how to respect the spirits. Roggvar recited age old tongues as he created the small fire.

The only reason i didn’t quit French years back is because i love this book too much

Hello, little foxes!! Espero que todos se encuentren de maravilla, soy Lena y por acá vengo a dejarles a mi niña consentida (affff, I know it’s a little too late but who cares??). Su nombre es Paula, tiene veinte añitos y es de Río de Janeiro, va por el segundo año de Medicina, pertenece a las lindas Kappas yyy también está en el equipo de cheerleading y voleibol. Si les interesa indagar un poco más sobre la vida de esta señorita, por acá pueden chismear sobre ello, y si desean tener alguna conexión con ella pueden revisar la lista, pintar de rojito al corazón y yo iré corriendo a acosarlos, digo a pasarme por sus IM’s.
