elves and dwarves are so confused by men’s gendering?? in both elf and dwarf cultures your gender and physical sex is completely seperate, so when they see a human baby and the parents are like, “yep, this our son, he’s a boy,” the elves and dwarves are so confused?? becaue the child hasn’t gotten a chance to decide for themselves??
elf and dwarf children get to feel out different genders until they feel comfortable to call themselves that gender. even then, theyre free to change it later on if they want
(aragorn was raised as an elf and therefore also went through this process. he tried out being a girl for a few years, then agender, and eventually decided on calling himself a boy. elrond was super proud)
it’s easy to tell with dwarves, bc they have special braids/beads for their gender
elves generally ask each other if theyre unsure, bc theyre deathly afraid of making assumptions, since thats like a really big insult
elves and dwarves each have very distinct body shapes. its difficult to differentiate between a (physically) female or male dwarf and between a (physically) female or male elf, which is great bc it means the humans cant just assume their gender
they dont really gender jobs (eg the woman cant be a guard or the man cant be a cook) bc thats not how elf/dwarf gender works?? theyre like the epitome of gender equality
(so dis was actually before dain in succession to the throne of erebor, but she decided to let him rule bc she had just lost the last of her remaining family)
elves are usually pansexual
dwarves are usually demisexual
hobbits are a mix, generally bi or pan, and occasionally polyamorous (theyre very free with their love)
humans are the very old school race, heterosexuality is generally preferred bc you can have a baby (theyre still very “a Woman is a Woman and a Man is a Man”). if youre looking for a pretty bigoted race, this is it
race (ie the colour of your skin) is not a big thing?? i mean youve got halflings and orcs and talking ravens and shit walking around??
the elves occasionally have this thing about heritage, but its still more about blood (like Noldor or Sinda or w/e) than physical attributes
that being said, most dwarves are def poc
i mean, they were created in the image of aule and dont even think about telling me he was white
also?? hobbits are a farming and gardening race?? they spend the whole day out in the sun, working?? they are not white fam
elrond is also not the straight-haired, pale bitch peter jackson showed us?? um dude he was related to like half of beleriand (part of middle earth that got flooded before lotr) and despite what peter jackson tells us, not every fucking elf and human is white jesus fucking christ
Summary: Everyone’s aura is black until the age of 18 when they get their own personal colour. No one’s is ever the same. Except Dan’s. Dan is 23 and has been waiting for 5 years to wake up with his own colour. But when he meets someone who’s aura is so bright it nearly blinds him, he believes he might be the way to finding his real aura.
Warnings: non this is fluffy as hell with like 2% angst and its just really cute
AN: seems I really like doing fics about colours (shamelessly promotes ’Red’)
He’s like the ocean and I’m the dark grey that fades into black sunk right below him. No one notices black when there’s bright blue to see.
Dan trudged through the streets, working his way to Starbucks. He slipped in and behind the counter, saying hello to his friend and clocking in, sighing at how many bright colours were around him.
“Still no luck?” Louise asked him as she passed him a drinks order and he rolled his eyes, gesturing to himself.
“Am I still black?”
“It will happen soon I’m sure,” she said, patting his shoulder and Dan raised his eyebrows.
“Lou I am the only twenty three year old to still have a black aura after turning eighteen. No one’s colour is black but it’s mine and I hate it. It’s never going to change and I’m going to be murky for the rest of my life,” he told her, passing her the drink he made as she sighed at him.
“You just need to find something to make you happy. Then you will start to take on colour,” she said and Dan rolled his eyes.
I got an anonymous request to make a tutorial on how I pick what colours I’m going to be using, so here’s the end result of said tutorial. It is rendering right now and I should have it uploaded in 7 hours (because that’s when I’ll be out of class)… assuming the video renders and exports properly. :U
– update: Still can’t get this video to export properly sooo…. hhh patience. I’ll get it up, I will. I might have to separate the video into smaller clips. – ANOTHER UPDATE: I NOTICED THEIR NOSES WERE VERY WRONG AND I FIXED THEM
She believes that he is the epitome of love, that he himself is made up of love.She hasn’t met anyone who spreads love as much as he does.
She believes that he looks good no matter how bright and colourful his suits are; she thinks that if he ever wears something ridiculously hideous,he’ll most likely still look handsome.
She believes that he’s extremely active on stage, especially when he performs Kiwi - where he continutinously rocks hard to the song by swinging his body to the side and stomping his feet on the surface.
She also believes that by coming on tour,day by day,she’s falling more in love with him.
arright guys, like i posted last night, my apartment was broken into and quite a few of my electronics were stolen - the most important of which being my computer and my tablet. im a freelance artist and my computer is my only real source of income, so while i do have renters insurance and hopefully will receive some reimbursement from that, my bills wont wait for that and i need to make the funds to buy a new laptop and tablet ASAP
so im going to be offering unlimited slots on traditional commissions until i have a laptop again, so if you’re interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org !!
in addition to sketches and badges im also going to be offering single character simple watercolour paintings as well for $80 (overly complicated characters may be more, x2 for an additional character - i dont have an example of these yet but they’ll just be a single, fullbody character on a single colour backgrounds, with detail comparable to the badges)
if anyone isnt interested in commissioning me and would still like to help, my paypal is the same as my email address! email@example.com
