What If

What if Varda and Manwë had actually been parents to Eönwë and Ilmarë? :3


I don’t know what’s with me and keeping them Valar eyeless >.o

Why I simultaneously crave and dread more TWD

My fellow Richonne Shippers/Trash. Even though we may not get a lot of fluffy, romantic scenes because of the constant struggle for survival, know this! We’ll be getting more Richonne than any other ship on the show, simply because Rick is the lead male character, and it’s technically his story we’re following. 😆🙌🏾 Now I just have to ignore my fear of Negan using them against each other 😖

If I Ever Make a Fantasy Role Playing Game, Here Are the Tropes I Will Avoid:
  • Slavery. So often video games in fantasy settings use it for color, but I’ve never seen a game that does it justice. 
  • ‘Women are equal to men!’ ‘Hey baby, the dancers entrance is downstairs’. Don’t tell me men and women are equal without showing it. If men and women are equal in this world, have a woman character be treated with as much respect, or more, if she’s of a higher position, than a male character. 
  • All the antisemitic dwarven stereotypes. 
  • The ‘animalistic’ ‘exotic’ race from some place hot. Do I even need to say why?
  • Grey morality. Not everything will be black and white, but certain things will be black and really really really light grey. 
  • All the lady characters, especially lady rulers, are uniformly young and pretty. NO! I want diverse looking ladies. Old ladies, little girls, ladies who are fat, ladies with big noses, ladies with curly hair, ladies with beards! LADIES!
  • Also, really really large buff men and really really skinny, small but supposedly equal in strength ladies. Give me barrel chested ladies, bean pole men and fat NB people as options too.
