Here’s some glorious pictures from my time at the London MCM Expo this year! I had an absolute blast as Thranduil (thanks to my beautiful and talented mother for making my costume) and with the excellent lifehasstarted as my son, I mean Legolas and the brilliant strexmachine‘s Biker!Thorin and all of the other SUPERB costumes there! That’s what I’m Tolkein about!

yeah tolkein probably didn’t anticipate how bad he messed up by leaving the seduction of mairon so vague…….like if he’d just explained……..did melkor have good campaign ads? did he show mairon a 300 slide powerpoint presentation on why Evil is the Way of the Future? I’m sorry mr tolkein but bc you never specified im free to assume that mairon had a big embarrassing eternal crush on melkor and they held hands a lot and also probably the powerpoint happened at some point. you can’t stop me.

Castiel chews his lip so obsessively it’s reddened and swollen from the abuse. His nerves are fried from trying to pay attention to his research while simultaneously listening for any sort of possible intrusion, and as a result, the elfling is practically drenched in sweat. Grabbing a piece of leather from his pocket, he ties his hair up into a bun, wiping at his forehead with his sleeve. His fingers tremble where they grip the hem.

After almost ten months of searching, Cas has found it.

Of course, ‘it’ is a paragraph that doesn’t have any true information regarding the biological or even emotional complexities of a human/elvish Bond, but it’s something. It’s concrete evidence that such a pairing can work and work properly. It’s more than enough.

It’s Everything.

Castiel has to bite his lip to curb his smile, shoving a bookmark between the pages and slamming the thing shut. He leaves the rest his research strewn out on the table he’d commandeered and sprints out of the library, tome clutched to his chest.

He has to tell Dean.
