i'd copy it

When journalists say “The president is telling obvious lies”, they are doing their job.

When a judge says “Complying with this executive order would be illegal”, she’s doing her job.

When senators vote against Trump’s cabinet picks, because they don’t think they are good for the country, they are doing their job.

When the President of Mexico says “Actually, we won’t pay for the wall”, he is definitely doing his job.

—  Benjamin Murphy on Quora, in response to “Why won’t people just let Trump do his job?”

“It’s only you,” whispered Orphan Girl. She was holding his hand crouched down next to him. “Why do you hate you?”
Ronan thought about it.
The albino night horror swept in, talons opening.
Ronan stood up, stretching out his arm like he would to Chainsaw.
“I don’t,” he said.
And he woke up.

I’m reading The Raven Cycle this summer and falling in love with it. This was my favorite scene in The Dream Thieves. Like. an actual thrill shot through my heart when I read it.

(½) I APOLOGIZE FOR YOUR INTOLERANCE TO EGGS. I HAVE AN INTOLERANCE TO GLUTEN, SO I FEEL A BIT OF YOUR PAIN, EVEN THOUGH I AM SURE IT IS NOT THE SAME. I ENJOY THE SHOUTING BECAUSE IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE WE’RE BOTH JUST SUPER EXCITED TO BE TALKING TO EACH OTHER (I, FOR ONE, CERTAINLY AM). IF WE WERE TO GET CLOSER THE GROUNDSKEEPER WOULD YELL AT US FOR MESSING UP THEIR CHALK LINES ADN I AM TOO NON-CONFRONTATIONAL FOR THAT, MY DEAR. I’M GLAD YOU ENJOYED THE POTS, I THOUGHT

(2/2) THEY WOULD MATCH THE VIOLETS RATHER WELL. WHEN THEY DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY BE SURE TO SEND ME PICTURES, I’D LOVE TO SEE WHERE THEY ARE NOT. ALSO, IF I MAY SAY, I WAS GREATLY AMUSED BY THE ZEBRA LINK. I LAUGHED FOR A GOOD TIME. THANK YOU FOR THAT.

oh my g o d

GERALDINE

I DID NOT MEAN TO PUT THE LINK. TO THE ZEBRAS

I HAVE JUST LAUGHED FOR 10 SOLID MINUTES I AM NOT JOKING ASDUSHDUIS

so the Z key on my laptop recently stopped working, right? and so whenever I do need to type a ‘Z’ I have got into the habit of googling, ahem, “ebra stripey animal” and getting results about Zebras and copy+pasting the Z from one of them and

and this time I copy+pasted it from the link to the wikipedia page

AND APPARENTLY THE LINK CAME WITH IT WHEN I PASTED IT AND I DIDN’T NOTICE AND I UNWITTINGLY LINKED TO THE ZEBRA PAGE

THIS IS LOWKEY ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME I AM LITERALLY GOING TO LAUGH MYSELF TO TEARS.

I DID NOT MEAN. TO LINK TO THE ZEBRAS

Finwean devices

So I’ve been looking quite a lot at the various heraldic devices in the Silmarillion, and Fingolfin and Finarfin’s devices have actually caused me quite a bit of puzzlement!

First of all, have a look at Feanor’s device:

It’s essentially what you would expect. Two overlapping eight point stars inside eight subdivisions inside another eight point star, eight flame-like rays…basically lots of stars, fire, and lots of number eight symbolism. This isn’t surprising given the official symbol of his house, it’s collectively agreed that it’s meant to represent him and his seven sons.

But then look at Fingolfin’s!

At first glance, they look practically the same!

Why does he have so much number eight symbolism?! A very similar looking eight rays drawn twice, plus the four stars in each corner. I suppose the latter can be more easily explained – we all know what the Eldar are like with them stars. But still, the two devices bear a very strong resemblance- eight flame rays encircling an eight point symbol.

What’s going on, Nolofinwe??

But it doesn’t end there. Look at Finarfin:

Same thing again! All three essentially share the same structure- eight points encircled by eight points-, just in different dominant colours, and Feanor’s happens to be a little more elaborate. But Feanor is the only one where the content is actually justified and bears some meaning when it comes to his family. The symbol of his entire house is literally an eight point star.

There’s no way that the three devices are just a coincidence, and the latter two do look heavily based on Feanor’s design, which was extremely specific to his own family - he is most certainly its original creator. So I’m fairly sure that his brothers knew exactly what they were doing when they designed their own devices.

The only explanation I can come up with is that the Finfins did this in a deliberate attempt to try to underline their brotherhood with Feanor. In which case, I can only imagine Feanor’s face when he first saw the blatant copyright infringement….

idk if i mentioned this before but i have access to digital versions of the dgm volumes 1-24 in raw form (so the original japanese) and the quality is miles better than the online translated scans. if anyone who either can’t/doesn’t own the dgm volumes themselves wants them for editing/reference purposes let me know!!

feel free to send an ask / IM  or reply / reblog to this post if you’re interested.

Sorry - I don’t have those first 6 without watermarks, but they’re cute and I like them so I’m sharing them anyway.  And thank you to @dtennantphotos for finding the last 2 un-watermarked - it was lovely to finally see them without writing all over his face!
