  • Tolkien:By the end of the Third Age, Sauron's physical power is so diminished that his presence is confined to the tower of Barad-Dur. However, he is still immensely powerful in his ability to watch and predict the movements of his enemies, and his understanding extends so far that he could metaphorically be referred to as a Great Eye, constantly watching and planning his next move. And because his gaze is so piercing, it is sometimes likened to fire.
  • Peter Jackson:Okay but...hear me out...what if Sauron was literally....a Great Eye.
  • Tolkien:What.
  • Peter Jackson:What if he was literally a giant eyeball on the top of Barad-Dur.
  • Tolkien:That's not quite what I inten-
  • Peter Jackson:Made of FIRE. A LITERAL GIANT FIERY EYEBALL.

In any other situation, having a character with these extreme traits makes them one-dimensional, but for Remus it works!

Remus being the calm one, contradicting James’ hyper moments, Sirius’ explosive moments, and Peter’s anxious moments

Remus never raising his voice, even when he’s furious

Remus being optimistic, even if the situation seems hopeless

Remus trying to be a pacifist

Remus trying to be the voice of reason

Remus getting really good grades at school

Remus volunteering whenever he can

Remus basically being this angelic ‘boy-scout’ character

But

Remus doing all of this because deep down, he is terrified that the monster in him is going to end up taking over because he has seen news articles in the Daily Prophet about werewolves joining Voldemort and killing people and he never wants that to happen and the thought of being even remotely loud/rash/mean/violent/etc. makes him think about it so he essentially tries to be the opposite.

Geez guys The last episode of Gravity Falls was so PERFECT! BEAUTIFUL! AND ALSO FUCKED UP I’m not suprised that Ford and Bill actually had ‘something’ And oh I feel like tears rolling down my face
