i love you martin

transrevan  asked:

all the parts of the ask meme you haven't done yet, for Tolkien

Ok haha, again sorry for no cut, tumblr mobile sucks.

4 Do you have a NoTP in your fandom? Are they a popular OTP?

Yeah, Maedhros/Fingon for reasons explained in an earlier ask. I’d say they were popular yeah :’)

7 Is there anything you used to like but can’t stand now?

This isn’t specifically silm, but the movies ruined Bilbo for me. I used to love him but I can’t stand Martin Freeman.

8 Have you received anon hate? What about?

Nope

11 Is there an unpopular character you like that the fandom doesn’t? Why?

I feel like the fandom is actually kinder to the Angband crew than they are to the Feanorians sometimes. At least, the ones that aren’t Maedhros and Maglor. Curufin seems to be the one most considered as “evil” and a lot of people kinda think of him only as a villain and a bad father if they think of him at all.

12 Is there an unpopular arc that you like that the fandom doesn’t? Why?

Silm doesn’t really have arcs haha.

13 Unpopular opinion about XXX character?

Maedhros and Fingon’s families were more important to them than each other. They certainly cared a great deal for each other, but I’m really not into characterisation where they’ll go for each other over their immediate families always. Mostly because I enjoy reading about them with interacting favourably with their brothers/sister rather than them shipped.

Also that Maglor isn’t Saint Maglor the Weepy. He regrets, yeah, but if he could do it all again and could save his family by killing, he’d happily wade through blood.

15 Unpopular opinion about the manga/show?

Feanor Did Some Things Wrong But The Valar Were Super Skeevy With Silmaril Ownership And Intervening When They Really Shouldn’t Have

18 Does not shipping something ‘popular’ mean you’re in denial and/or biased?

No, it just means I have different tastes. Variety is the spice of life, it’d be boring if we all thought the same thing

24 Would you recommend XXX to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes but with the addendum that it’s really heavy going and it’s definitely not for everyone

25 How would you end XXX/Would you change the ending of XXX?

I couldn’t write a better story than Tolkien. But I’d love an au where the feanorians survive.

reblog this and tag Your hockey player. you know. the one that when you look at them you think ‘i will never love another hockey player/man/woman/human like i love you’. the one that not necessarily was your first favorite but the One that makes you think ‘i never truly knew a favorite player until you’. the One. we all have one. who is yours

I’ll never get over the fact that everything they say is so accurate.

I will never get over this

Happy 100th Birthday, Dean Martin! 7. June 1917 -

“There will never be another Dean Martin. I’m certain his multitude of talents will remain in memories for many years. And aren’t we all very fortunate that he passed through our lives? And left us smiling? I know I am.” - Jeanne Martin

“Dean is a very sweet and gentle man. I envy his gentleness. He really is a patient, gentle man, a great father. Generous.” -Frank Sinatra

“He had more guts and more courage, more dignity, and carried himself with a kind of aplomb most men never even dream about. (…) He was magic to be around and had the exquisite ability to know what was funny. He would always say, ‘We’ll do this until it really looks like ad-libs,’ and he was right, we worked hard at what we did and it paid off. I still miss him, but the memories keep me warm.” - Jerry Lewis
